Pap TwSfd- Blytbevfflt (Arfc.) Courtef ITewi - Tuesday, M»y «, «* Hal Boyle NEW YORK (AP) - They come and go, the little starlets of the screen, like daisies in the spring. Or, like a summer meteor, they flash across the sky in a stab of brightness, then disappear into oblivion. • One out of a hundred or so has enduring qualities. Her luminosity lasts. She becomes a star. : Is Jacqueline Bisset, the young British beauty who replaced Mia Farrow in "The Detective," such a one? The entertainment world is wondering. So is Jacqueline. One of her greatest boostsrs is veteran actor Horace McMahon, the perennial cop portrayer whom Frank Sinatra insisted • appear with him in "The Detective." ; "This girl can act," said McMahon,' "and she has the kind of face a cameraman likes to photograph forever." Jacqueline is tall, slender, and bosomy, and has gray- green eyes and coppery brown jhair. She and Julie Christie look enough alike to be sisters. Just turned 23, Miss Bisset— her chums call her Jackie—is a former photographic model who first won real studio attention with a small but standout part in "Two for the Road." Altogether, she has been in seven films. "Lately, I've been surprised Jackie's father 1» a Scottish doctor who has a practice near London. Her mother was formerly a lawyer in Paris. Jackie left a London girls' school at 19 to begin a modeling career. "I didn't feel at home in that school," she said, smiling at the memory. "It was terribly torn- boyish and athletic, and I didn't feel very masculine." Asked about her goals, Jackie said she hoped to achieve stardom as an actress, then remarked: "But I want most of all to grow up and be a good woman. That sounds pretty silly, doesn't it? But I feel it is self-explanato ry, and I don't want to add to it. "Right now I am trying to sort out the good from the bad and be a little more discriminating, particularly about people. I'm trying to live a little deeper than the physique. "I have met jaded people, and my greatest fear is that I'll lose my own feeling of curiosity. That is the only thing that frightens me. "I don't want to end up a shriveled old cow, bitter at life, and hating men and the world." Here are the things Jackie likes: "Reading Sunday papers—the, smell of apples, horses and burning logs—the sounds of Wagner, beating drums, thunder, stormy surf and pelting Today In History to find I can act," she said can- rain—mornings in CaHifomia didly. "I never thought I could. "Until I was 161 wanted to be a ballet dancer and dance my way across all the great stages of the world to tremendous ap- "plause. I was a pretty starry- eyed kid. "But I was shy and had no ^confidence in myself. I was self-critical to the point of complete negativeness. r ; "Only now am I beginning to be a bit more sure of myself. I -love film work. I like acting be- icause I have some need for self-expression." and November dusks in. England — the poetry of Keats, Shakespeare and Baudelaire- soul people, who have other interests than money—and men who are real he-men. I have a hangup on men with long dark hair and piercing blue eyes." Here are her dislikes: "Talking about myself—turquoise jewelry—big ostentatious hairdos — phoniness — white shoes—cynical people—and cold modern buildings. I like people and buildings that have a sense of the past." By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Today is Tuesday, May 28th, the 149th day of 1968. There are 217 days left in the year; Today's highlight in history: On this date in 1940, British and French forces began the World War II evacuation from Dunkerque, France. On this date: In 1798, the U.S. Congress empowered President John Adams to recruit an army of 10,000 volunteers. In 1864, Archduke Ferdinand Maxmilian of Austria-Hungary landed at Vera Cruz to become emperor of Mexico. In 1934, Oliva Dionne gave birth to girl quintuplets in her farmhouse near Callender, On tario. In 1937, Neville Chamberlin succeeded Stanley Baldwin as British prime minister. In 1940, King Leopold HI surrendered the Belgian Array to Nazi Germany. In 1962j on a day known as "Blue Monday," the New York Stock market suffered its biggest loss since Oct. 29, 1929. Ten years ago — Some 125,000 leftists paraded in Paris to protest the role being played by Gen. Charles de Gaulle during a government crisis in France. Five years ago—The Vatican disclosed that Pope John XXIH was suffering from a grave tumor condition. One year ago — Sir Francis Chichester sailed in harbor at Plymouth, England after circling the world in his ketch "Gipsy Moth." The ancient art of bagpiping is more popular than ever. With infrared instruments, man can see down into the earth and detect water flowing underground. Beat — ou max tturm — There is more progressive news on the Bootheel Economic Development Council. As reported in some newspapers a few days ago, an executive director has been employed — a man highly experienced in industrial development work — and is to assume his duties in the Council's regional office on the Maiden airbase in less than 30 days. - Also, Mayor L. R. Bain of Hayti, the group's treasurer, said that he has been receiving additional funds from other municipalities in the six-county area to be served by the Council. The organization is to be financed partly with state and federal funds and the rest by contributions from the towns and cities in the region, based on the population of each. County courts were solicited for the rural population, but at the time this column was being written Mayor Bain said that so far none of the county courts had responded with their checks. There is a brighter situation in municipal industral revenue bonds in that the Internal Revenue Service has ruled that such issues of less than $1 million will continue with their free status as before. This means that the interest income on the bonds is not subject to the income tax, which make them attractive to investors. Quite a bit of industrial development can be done in the numerous Boot- heel towns for less than Sl-muV lion per issue. So the area is not completely out of business on that score. The reason the tax status of such bonds is so important is that tax-free bonds call for a reduced interest rate — which means that industrial facilities constructed with the bond money can be leased at less cost to the industries using them. This is a definite advantage in community industrial programs. Does your legislator represent you or himself on the Mixed Drink issue! Ask him and see.
