Kennedy To Sell Home in D.C. WASHINGTON (AP) - Mrs. John F. Kennedy is leaving the capital — and its memories of great triumph and deep sadness—to live in New York, hoping the change will be beneficial to her and the children. The widow of the assassinated president disclosed she plans to sell her two homes in the area and fake up residence in New York in time to enter Caroline, G, and John Jr., 3, in school this fail. "While she will always maintain her close ties in Washington," said the statement issued through her office Monday, "Mrs. Kennedy feels that the change of environment in New York, from Georgetown and its many memories, will be beneficial to her and the children." The memories are at every corner. It was in Georgetown where she and Kennedy lived after they were first married, while he was a senator—from where he drove to his inaugura- j tion—and to where she returned Uo live after his death in Dal- jlas last Nov. 22. | She bought the 14-room i Georgetown house, at 3017 N {Street, last December for a reported $175,000, and it has be- jcome a regular stop among the i capital's tourist attractions. i The other home is Wexford, (he 26-acre estate in the Virginia hunt country which she and the president built for a | weekend retreat and complet- ; ed only last summer at an es- ;timalcd cost of $100,000.

His face, shaded by a blue fedora, resembled a dried quince. A natty suit covered his beach - ball figure. His voice sounded as if it came from an old gramophone. Billy Rhodes is by his own definition a Lilliputian. "I realize the word is a hard one for most people to say, so they call us midgets," he remarked. "Well, that's all right. They can call us midgets if they like. We people of the little world have a tough road to follow." Little Billy, as his billing reads — the ring on his tiny finger spells L. B. in diamonds — was resting on the bench at Las Palmas Avenue during one of his daily promenades down the Boulevard. Sitting in the midday sun like a miniature Buddha in a blue suit, he re- GOREN ON BRIDGE I5Y CHARLES H. GORENT to 1944: Bf Tilt Chlcow TrltONl East-West vulnerable. East deals.

One South put up the ten of clubs from dummy and, when this was covered by East's queen, he played the ace from his hand. A heart was led at trick two and West rose with the afle to return another dub. East won two tricks in the suit to complete the defensive book, and he now led a fourth round of clubs. South discarded a diamond and West ruffed in with the ten of spades forcing North to overmff with the queen. Try as he might, declarer was unable to avoid losing a trump trick to East subsequently, and he suffered a setback on the deal. At the other table, when. East covered the ten of clubs with the queen on the opening lead, declarer'permitted him to hold the trick. East could not continue the suit profitably, so he shifted to the queen of hearts. West played the ace and returned a heart taken by North's king, on which South discarded his remaining small club. A club was led to the ace, and dummy was re-entered with the ace of diamonds so that declarer could ruff a club with the five of spades. The king of diamonds was played and a small diamond trumped with dummy's three of spades. South ruffed the heart return as East discarded a club. The king of trumps was cashed felling West's lone ten and South trumped his last diamond with the queen of spades as East helplessly underruffed. On the heart return from dum. my, South sat behind East's jack-eight of trumps with the ace-nine. Declarer took the last two tricks to chalk up an overtrick. OPEN 7 P.M.

Little Billy joined (he repertory company and was later! adopted by the manager, Jerry Grady. Billy played all the child roles. Billy moved on lo vaudeville and Broadway, appearing with Marilyn Miller in "Peter Pan" and in George M. Cohan's "Review of 1916." In 1928 he was brought to Hollywood for his first movie, "Side Show," with Marie Prevost. He has been around the Boulevard off and on ever since and still works in movies and television. He lives alone and hangs out with the normal-size actors at the Masquers' Club rather than with the colony of little people. "I don't like midgets; they're too damned smug," he muttered. "I've lived with big people all my life, and 1 prefer them." i Author of Short Stories Has New Play Tried Out NEW YORK (AP) - "One in a Row," a play about an author who finds overnight suc- cuss a headache, is being readied on the summer Iryout cir- Broadway. Ben Piazza has the focal role in the drama. The author, Flip Schaffer, a member of the history faculty at the University of Michigan, has written short stories before. This is his first stage effort. The cast and crew laughed al Tracy's gag; he was responding like an old fire horse to the clanging of the bell. Although the actor is frequently on the set of "Ship of Fools," he is not working in the movie. There had been reports thai Tracy is observing Stanley Kramer's making of "Ship of Fools" with the idea of turning director himself. I asked him about that. "I don't know," he replied. "It might be an interesting experience, but I'm not sure 1 have the patience to direct. 1 will say that I am learning a great deal by watching. You'd think I'd know all the tricks by now. But you miss a lot when you have to concentrate on your own job. "Another reason I'm hanging around I won't go into, but it happens that this company is still paying me. a lot of money. (Apparently for previous Kramer films.) "But if you want to know the real reason, it's because I gel a free lunch every day." Me made the remark with a twinkle and it reflected his present mood, which is mellow. Tracy has been known to get his Irish up. Ho is all smiles on the "Ship of Fools" set. He looks great, belying all the fears for his health when hc was stricken with a lung congestion last July and later had to withdraw from a role in "Cheyenne Autumn." His face is ruddy and his figure trim. Amateur Groups Now Have Musical Works Available NEW YORK (AP) - A library of musical works is now being made available to ama- , Damatists Play Service.
