A-26-INDEPENDENT, PRESS-TELEGRAM citii.. J EARL WILSON Bernadette Peters matures: 'tired of being child star 9 NEW YORK -- "! never liked being a kid -- I was always impatient to get it over with. "It was like having a baby. You had to go through a tough period, so have it and get it finished." Bernadette Peters, the sexy little 23-year-old blonde who resembles Marilyn Monroe, s p o k e these revealing words in her dressing room at "On the Town" the other afternoon. Though she was a child actress at 9 when she was directed by Otto the Ogre Preminger, and though she performed in glamorous Las Vegas with "Gypsy" at 13, Bernadette says "I wouldn't want to be a child again. When you're a child, you have thoughts, but nobody listens to you. Nobody has any respect for you. That's it, 1 didn't get no respect." Curvy, round-faced, 110- pound Bernadette Lazarra is the daughter of Peter Lazarra who has a bread route in Queens. "Life gets better every day," she said, putting an elbow on her dressing table. "Life is like a chart. It goes up and down and some day it's going to go blong -- and go way down. The important thing is to appreciate the moments when the lines on the chart are going up."

"Did you notice it'/" 1 asked her. "I tried not lo," she admitted. "He kissed me. 1 heard his words in my ear and I couldn't believe it. It took forever for it to penetrate my mind that it was the mayor. And the first time [ met Leonard Bernstein I was so thrilled. Meeting this man so vital and full of life. 'That's part of the fun. Getting to know these people and the ones I'll meet later. Working with Carol Burnett on TV. I used to watch Carol Burnett on the Gary Moore show. And here I am meeting them and working \vith them!" Bernadette said being a child actress was hard -you start at 9 and then don't get a job again 'til you're 11, then ano'ther layoff 'til you're 13. BERN A D E T T E GOT good notices in "This Is Goggle" at 9 but the show closed and she recalls that director Preminger railed at her, "Vut is the mutter? De rewews go to your head?" "I was just a little girl," she says. "I didn't know whether I was good or bad." In Las Vegas with "Gypsy" there was nothing for : a little girl to do. At 13, she was playing a Hollywood movie star. "I just put a blonde wig on," she explained. "I would go in the restaurant and eat and lie around the pool and sleep and dream. I had nobody to talk to. That's no town for a 13-year-old. I was terribly lonely." Life swept on and she got into "Dames at Sea," and now "On the Town," playing Hildy a cab driver, with a New York voice that she says she patterned after Peter Falk's voice. "I don't know him but I love him," she said. "This girl is tough and talks like he talks. They always say 'Eye,' then they say what they're gonna say. They say 'Ey, Joe, 'ey, whad- daya doon'?'

"Thank God the days of beating the pavement for work are over: I had an older sister take me around to casting offices but I'd go in looking such a sourpuss, I wouldn't smile. My attitude was wrong." Bernadette makes her movie debut in "Ace Eli and Roger of the Skies." She plays an "amateur prostitute." "What do I do in my leisure? I have a lot of plants and I love to repot them : and watch them grow. I have no qualms," she added, looking into the mirror, "about revealing that my BERNADETTE PETERS Glad to Be Older hair is darker than it looks and that I touch it up. But everything else is real!"

RENO (UP) - Harolds Club dealers and maintenance men have voted by a slim margin to be represented in collective bargaining by a union in a landmark election at the Pioneer Gambling Casino owned by Howard Hughes. The final tally announced Saturday after two days of balloting in the National Labor Relations Board election was 438 employes for unionization and 353 against. The dealer vote was 351 for and 295 against, while the maintenance men cast 87 yes votes and 58 no ballots. Al Genette, business agent for the Casino Em- ployes Union, said the victory would pave the way to Judge strips Oakland's nude ban OAKLAND Iff) -- A municipal judge has 1 ruled that parts of the Oakland municipal code banning topless and bottomless dancing are unconstitutional. J u d g e Howard L . Schwartz said he based his decision on previous California Supreme Court rulings which hold topless dancing to be a form of expression protected by the First Amendment's freedom of speech. However, he upheld the city's right to outlaw nude waitressing. "You can prohibit nude serving of food and drink because that's not expression, that's business conduct," the judge said. The case involved topless dancer Beth Markovich, 24, who was arrested earlier this year on two misdemeanor charges involving the city's topless and bottomless bans. Judge Schwartz noted the Supreme Court has decided to hear cases involving Orange and Sacramento county topless and bottomless regulations similar to those in Oakland. organizing casino workers in the state of Nevada. "Harolds Club is the key," he said. Casinos in the state have traditionally r e j e c t e d unionization. Employes at the Tropicana Hotel-Casino on the Las Vegas "Strip," recently turned down a union-organizing bid by a two-to-one margin. "The knowledge that the union can be successful should erase some of the fears of workers in other casinos," Genette said. Harolds Club management claimed that a union victory would be disastrous to the state's gambling industry. A spokesman for the club said after the election, "National Labor Relations Board's elections are not certified for five days. In this case, the date of certification, if objections are not filed, is Dec. 10." "Until then, we will be carefully evaluating.the results and we will have a further announcement later in the week," the spokesman added. Genette called the election a "clean contest." Hughes Nevada mine shift claims denied "The difference in the vote here and at the;Tiibpi- cana in Las Vegas; wHich surprised some observers, was due to the detertmna- tion of the people here to make a success of organizing the employes," Qe/jg.tte said. , ru '," M Harolds Club is the only casino in Northern Nev'a'da owned by Hughes. He' purchased the operation' for $12 million last year-from the founding Smith famify, The Casino employes union is a division of the Sta-. tionary Engineers LoCal 39, which is affiliated with the International Union-of O p e r a t i n g Engineers, AFL-CIO. LAS VEGAS (DPI) -The vice president of a mining company headed by a personal secretary to Howard Hughes was quoted Saturday as saying all of the Nevada mining properties would be shifted to Pan American Mines, Ltd. A spokesman for Hughes Tool Co. denied the statement. Hughes owns almost 3,000 mining claims in Nevada, none of which has ever been developed. The Las Vegas Sun, in a story by author Jim Phelan, of Long Beach, said Albert Dupris made the statement recently in Montreal and said it was Howard Eckersley who told him. Dupris is vice president of Pan American Mines, Ltd. and Eekersley is chairman of the board. Eckersley also is one of five private secretaries who work directly for billionaire Hughes. Trading of Pan American Mines, Ltd., stock was halted several weeks ago on the Canadian stock exchange. The firm was listed on -the exchange in the summer and climbed to 512 a share before it plummeted to less than a dollar. Harry Andrews, chairman of the exchange, was associated with a brokerage house which was the underwriter of Pan American stock. Andrews has been suspended as chairman of the exchange and his company is being investigated. PACIFIC WALK-INS LAKE WOOD CENTER WMK-IN OPEN NOON · STABTS 12:30-.
