The soul i Prison inmates cut first record By JAMES GERSTENZANG Associated Press Writer RAHWAY, N.J. (AP) - Reginald Haynes is due for parole from Rahway State Prison on May 29. But he'll be coming back to harmonize with his buddies now and then. Haynes used to sing on street corners, in churches and anywhere anyone would listen to him before landing in the maximum security prison four years ago. There he made some friends and organized The Escorts, a prison singing group that this week is releasing a long-playing record album, "All We Need Is Another Chance." The nine Escorts recorded the album in a nine-hour session in a psychological counseling room of the prison. Their name is a wry reference to the fact that prisoners must be accompanied by an escort whenever they move from their cell blocks. 'Local radio stations have played the title song. "It was like a dream come true, waking up and hearing the record playing," said one of the lead singers, Robert Arrington, up for parole in September on a manslaughter conviction. The singers range from 22 to 27 years old. They were convicted of various crimes, including armed robbery. The songs are mostly soul "Spring's Here SALE! ············« TURF BUILDER PLUS 2 Reg. $ 7.95 5,000 Sq. Ft. 10 ooo Sq. Ft.$l O45 15,000 Sq.

The title cut was written by George Kerr, who heard the group perform at a prison talent show while visiting a friend there three years ago and : offered to produce the album.. Other songs are The Escorts' versions of recent hits, including "By the Time I Get to Phoenix" and "Little Green Apples." The recording represents "a big piece of effort, time and persistence by a talented group of young men who refused to let their less than luxurious surroundings", stand in their way, says Robert Clifford, commissioner of the state Department of Institutions and Agencies. Kerr, who invested $11,000 in the recording, says the album will be sold in retail record shops. He says that, after the investment is recouped, proceeds are to be returned to the prisoners' families and to lawyers representing the inmates. Some funds also will go to the prison to improve inmate facilities. SPORTS MEMORABILIA MONROEVILLE, Pa. (AP) -- What happened to such sports memorabilia as Knute Rockne's one and only playbook, John L. Sullivan's boxing gloves, Jim Thorpe's letter sweater at Carlisle or the Boston Braves' uniform Babe Ruth wore on the day he closed out his career with three home runs in Forbes Field? All these collector's gems and many more have found their way to Joel Plait's house here. Platte, a 34-year-old real estate investor and promotor, is a sports mementos collector with over a million items; in his possession. "My goal is to create a Sports Immortals Museum, an all sports hall of fame in a tourist location and to bring · these sports stars to life with the use of wax figures and all the modern audio-visual effects," Platt says.

PEIPERT Associated Press Writer MOSCOW (AP) -- Two top Italian moviemakers are trying to involve the' Soviet Union in what they call the most ambitious and gigantic project ever filmed--Dante's "Inferno." Director Franco Zeffirelli, who filmed "Romeo and Juliet," and Producer Alfredo Bini say cultural officials in Moscow have expressed interest but have given no firm commitments. The two said they hope to involve as many major actors and countries as possible in an epic screening of the 14th-cen- tury Florentine poet's phantas- rnagorical view of hell. The film is expected to cost $8 million to $10 million and to show masses of people--many of them naked--as well as landscapes of the desert, forest, and caverns, ballet choruses and a lot of special effects. Zeffirelli and Bini noted that varied landscapes and outstanding dance companies are abundant in the Soviet Union. They said they hoped to do some shooting in Moscow, using such troupes as the Bolshoi and Moiseyev. They also indicated the Soviet Union might like to get a piece of the action, and prestige, on what they feel will be a big money maker promoted and distributed around the world. If all goes well, shooting might start around February. The moviemakers conceded they might run into some problems with the Soviets over "Inferno's" religious motif and mass nudity, even though classical illustrations depict Dante's sinners naked. "But this is not only their problem, but my problem as well," Zeffirelli said, "because I want to present the whole thing on such an idealistic level that any idea of pornography would be absolutely out of place. "Of course this is a difficult task,"hecontinued. "Whenever you place a naked body in front of a movie camera that is something realistic, and it's not easy to spiritualize it." Zeffirelli said he is considering various techniques to "desexuaiize" his sinners, such as form-fitting, flesh-colored plastic garments and shaved heads. Zeffirelli and Bini have discussed their ideas with officials of the state committee on cinematography, which controls the Soviet film industry; Sovimf- ilm, which handles joint productions; and the big Moscow film-making collective, Mos- film. They said they also had a talk with Igor Moiseyev, who directs an i n t e r n a t i o n a l l y known dance ensemble, and that he expressed interest in taking part in the film. Zeffirelli and Bini pointed out that Soviet dance companies would not necessarily have to travel to desert and forest locations. The dancers and scenery could be shot separately and then superimposed by special effects.

According to tradition, the poet himself wrote the lines engraved upon it: "Good friend for Jesus sake forbeare 'To digg the dust enclosed he are; "Bless be ye man yt spares these stones "And curst be he yt moves my bones." But this village's most fa- mous resident had little cause to fear that his remains would be removed to the adjacent bone-house, as was customary after a while. Because of its importance as the birthplace and home of Shakespeare, Stratford has remained a quaint Elizabethan village, where modern automobile traffic looks out of place. The life of the town centers around its annual festival of Shakespearean plays. Hundreds of thousands of tourists come here each year to attend the Royal Shakespeare Theatre and to visit the many sites associated with the poet- playwright. For the visitor to England, Stratford-Upon-Avon is almost an obligatory pilgrimage, the first spot most people think of seeing after a tour of Ixmdon's highlights. A number of hotels have been built to accommodate the growing numbers of tourists -- the latest is the Stratford Hilton. Driving through the town you also see discreet signs on many homes offering "bed and breakfast." Stratford is about 65 miles from Ixmdon, a pleasant drive through a pastoral countryside that adds to the illusion Uiat time has stood still here. ·Mlffi 1819 9th St. Carry-Out Service 353-1985 ·^ ^ ·« | * i »5nas; Banana Split Sale 39* Save!
