Novelist Irving Wallace Plans To Cover Politics By PHIL THOMAS . AP Newrf»iiurt« Writer . N E W Y O R K - ( A P ) - Irving Wal]ac«'s parents bought him a typewriter when,he was 13, he sold his first short story '.when ·he was 15, and now at 56 he's writing best-sellers on that same typewriter. · . Wallace, a heavy-set, talkative man, .says, "I've written gust about everything. I've never done anything but write, guess - that's unique, but it's also been good for me since writing is the last bastion of independence. It's the only place left where y o u - d o n ' t have a boss." ; The, writer, who has published .-.15 books, among them The Chapman Report," "The Prize," 'and -his latest "The Word," says with a laugh that ".the tnment you have a book (hat $ells;15,000 'copies in hard coveiv;you'.become a property. Once you :· become' a property you Van''be independent. There arcpiniyoa'handful of'writers in the-world like this. Men who c a n ' m a k e . a living solely-on their'books." . : '· Speaking softly but forcefully, Wallace says. he. has been supporting! himself by writing since 1938, ''although .at. the' beginning it:.was,on.a real poverty level. I've had:my rough times. ·"When I was'131my parents kn«w I wanted to be a writer so they bought me a rebuilt typewriter. It's the same machine I!m using today. I must have spent a couple of Ihousand dollars or more keeping that machine in ' condition. But, then, I'm very comfortable with it." Irving Wallac* Wallace published four books "before I hit it big with my fifth, "The Chapman-Report,' in 1960. It become a big international book. But it was just a stroke of luck. There is no formula for a best seller." The Los Angeles based writer says he got the idea for his newest novel, "The Word," about 10 years ago. The book deals with the-discovery of an allegedly new gospel written by James, the younger brother of Jesus, the effects of the discovery on the world, and efforts to prove the authenticity Junior String Recital Planned Tuesday at UNC A junior string recital for the School of Music at the University of Northern Colorado ·will be given at 7:30 p.m. in Frasier 249.

"I've always- been curious about great historical figures," Wallace says, "and one day. I remembered a poll I'd read. The poll asked newsmen to pick what they thought would be the biggest story of our. time and they 'voted for the return of Jesus Christ to earth and the visibility of him as a human being. "So 1 decided to write a book thai would be about the finding of evidence to prove that-Jesus lived and was not fable. I'd done a lot pi research, but then I decided I'd have to learn a lot more to make my book- credible. I spent about 10 years digging. Not fullfime, of course, but always picking up bits ami pieces. "About a year ago I went over all my stuff, absorbed it and 1 sat down to . write. . The book went through .six. drafts. Or seven solid hours a day, : six days a week for a year." , Usually after he finishes .a book Wallace" goes to Europe and relaxes for-'aite.w'lmonths, but this" time he plans something different. ..' . : .- - "Iplah to cover the political conventions for abput^HO-news- papers," he says. "I'll be doing a daily story -- giving a novelist's eye view of what is happening. "I consider that a vacation." Camera News By I R V I N G DESFOR AP Newifeatures The excitement of taking pictures, I've often found, is matched only by the excitement of making the visual images "come to life" in the darkroom. There is a great thrill on first seeing a negative after processing when it successfully translates vision into an image on film; hut the thrill is surpassed by the tangible evidence of a finished enlarged print. Good as the results are, however, they can often be improved by careful procedures, attention to darkroom cleanliness and making better use of equipment and facilities on hand. So let's pay attention to Edward Myers, a pro, as he gives us "Darkroom Tips for Better Picture Quality" in the current 1972 Spring issue of "35-mm Photography," an annual guide by the editors of Popular Photography magazine, published by Ziff-Davls ($1.50). Instead of trying various ex otic super-developers touted by friends, stick to the one. recommended by the film manufacturer and, at first, use it according to directions. Make changes later to get the results you want--for instance shorten development time if you prefer yetting agent solution.

Drama Crlfic NEW YOIIK (AP) - The ays of the butch and her fluff re scrutinized with tedious eal. in ''The Divorce of Judy nd Jane," Wednesday night's age torment at the Bijou The- ,er.

Several characterizations apparently are intended as in group caricatures of certain stars of screen, fashions and publishing. Maybe the Christ- Eve setting was symbolic, :oo.
