Departures mark Johnson years J' By PAUL J. WEB '·" Copley News Service itie 1 administration of the late Lyndon 'B. Johnson saw the birth of.'a coin, the Kennedy half-dollar, that is without a dbubt the most universally, knflwn and 1 collected coin of all U.S. issues. But the histories of his five- year tenure in the White House will probably give more attention to three "departures" of economic-numismatic significance. £ DANCE FRIDAY.9P.M.-2A.M. -- KEITH FRANK '"'.

The Coinage Act of 1916 sounded the death kn«U for silver in U.S. coins, although half dollars retained 40 per cent silver until 1971. Mr. Johnson also signed the bills that removed the silver redemption from silver certificates and the gold reserve requirement from Federal Reserve notes. + . + . + Just U days after the Cook Islands released their first official coinage in celebration of the 25th wedding anniversary of Queen Elizabeth II -and Prince Phillip, a carved standing figure of.Tangaroa, the Cook Islands god of creation, water, the ocean, navigation and the heavens, sold at the Sotheby auction for $103,000, 'setting a new world auction record for a primitive sculpture. The, extraordinary amount realized for this carving exceeds the record price for a coin at auction. The carving reflects the rarity of early Polynesian art which was sought out and largely destroyed by the London Missionary Society. , April l»,l»7» GREELEY (Colo.)

By KING DURKEE Copley News Service Is it possible that the Beethoven symphonies are not Solti's cup of tea? After his monumental Mahler Eighth, one had hoped for a surpassing performance of the Beethoven Ninth. This isn't it. Perhaps it was too much of an encore to have expected. However, one certainly had the right to expect more than this. Solti's performance with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and Chorus not only is uninspired, it is dull. One listens in vain for a distinguishing mark by this conductor. And distinguishing mark there should be, else why add. one more Ninth to the flock that exists? It is no trick at all to select some half-dozen performances currently listed in Schwann that are head and shoulders above this lacklus- ter reading. To mention but a . few, those of Schmidt-Isserstedt, Jochum, Stokowski and Bohm. And to mention a few more, those of Toscanini, Szell and l£insdorf. And Solti doesn't come within a country mile of communicating the excitement of the Furtwanger 1951 Bayreuth performance. As for the vocalists, nothing the soloists or the chorus could have done would have saved this performance. They simply were not inspired. Neither, evidently, were London's sound engineers. Even the great Chicago Symphony itself is off form, but. the blame for this must go to Sol- ti. Perhaps Beethoven really isn't Solti's composer. A replaying of his readings of the third, fifth and seventh symphonies with the Vienna Philharmonic and the not currently available fourth with the London Philharmonic resulted in satisfaction only with the seventh.

By JOESPH MILL BROWN Copley News Service A sacrifice, to mundane man, often implies nothing more than subjecting himself, once a week, to his mother-in- law's cooking. To a professional chessplayer, there are other dimensions. Frequently, he may find himself at a part}' full of people who manufacture such necessities as electric bean- shooters, or plastic rabbits' feet that glow in the dark. Yet it will be him to whom everyone will point and whisper, "Is that all he really does?" -a question any grandmaster will tell you, quite bitterly, is never asked about generals and film directors, whose occupations are precisely the same. So strong is this sense of superiority among nonplayers that the professional is often the victim of a kind of boorish arrogance from patrons which only a Fischer can afford to challenge. At the 1970 Olympiad, in Siegen, Germany, George Koltanowski reported the party given for the Soviet team. The host was busily bending more ears than an assembly- line worker in a pretzel factory. Pausing only for breath, he turned to Vasily Smyslov, a world champion in the 1850s, and asked, "What do you say to a glass of vodka?" · "Nothing," was Smyslov's grim retort. "I'll drink it."
