Prinze's best friend, singer Tony Orlando, and "Chico and the Man" co-star Jack Albertson delivered eulogies at the closed-casket funeral in the Old North Church at Forest Lawn Hollywood Hills. The funeral was by invitation only since the church cannot accommodate a large crowd. The cortege then moved to the graveside situated across the Los Angeles River on a grassy knoll above NBC's Studio 3, where "Chico" was filmed. Persons close to Prinze said he had been despondent over the breakup of his 15-month marriage to Kathy Cochran, who filed for divorce Dec. 13. She was in Prinze's hospital room when he died, as was Prinze's mother, Maria.' James Komack, executive producer of the "Chico" television show, said Sunday that Prinze's widow was being blamed unfairly. "She initially started to take all the blame, but it's not true," Komack said. "That is not true at all. It was not in the note. The note said something like no one's to blame and he loves everybody and this is what he wants to do. It mentioned nobody. "The idea of saying Kathy should take the blame is insane and she realizes that. Her only remorse is, 'I wish he was here and I wish I could do something for him.' "He accepted the divorce. It was a two-way separation of two young people who made a commitment too young." Police said that a note from Prinze was found that declared, in effect, "I can't go on." Komack said that Mrs. Prinze came to the hospital Friday morning "absolutely hysterical, but she was finally able to understand and overcome hei grief." Prinze's father, Karl, and Orlando were also at the hospital when he died. In addition to his widow and parents, Prinze leaves his 10- month-old son, Freddie Jr. Death overshadows rA Star Is Born HOLLYWOOD (UPI) - The memory of two dead entertainers overshadowed the weekend's 1977 Golden Globe Award presentations, with the biggest share of the movie honors going to "A Star Is Born" and "Network." The Hollywood Foreign Press Association honored the late Peter Finch, who died of a heart attack a few weeks ago, with a statuette for best actor in a movie for his portrayal as a suicidal news anchorman in "Network." Another poignant moment in the ceremonies Saturday night came when Henry Winkler, named best actor in a television comedy or musical series, paid his respects to a fellow nominee, Freddie Prinze, who died hours earlier from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. "May he rest in peace," Winkler said to the solemn crowd. "A Star is Born," a big-star big-budget remake of a old-time movie story, was named the year's best motion picture comedy or musical and The Adventures of the mmmm FAMILY rr APiHUK S yi.BS A INTERNATIONAL ENrERPRIStS INC RELEASE CgimtyCFi Last Two Days.

LV T VU LOS ANGELES (AP) -A couple posing as vacationers are traveling the country using 12- and 16-year-old sons to steal thousands of dollars from clothing and jewelry stores, police say. The boys have been caught many times. But Los Angeles policeman Jerry Osterholt describes them as great actors who turn on the tears and are released after their parents promise to counsel them. "They give the appearance of being a wealthy family," Osterholt said. "Nothing but the finest clothes, jewelry. They stay in the best hotels. They go first cabin all the way. "These kids are learning crime does pay, and very handsomely," he said. "They eat out all the time, are always in hotels. They've got to be spending $200 a day just to live." He said the FBI agreed last week to enter the case and is seeking witnesses to some of the family's past crimes. Police say the family has hit one clothing chain, Casual Corners, 19 times over the past two years in a number of states. The 12-year-old was caught earlier this month after pocketing $60,000 in diamonds from a jewelry store in the Los Angeles suburb of Woodland Hills, Osterholt said. His brother was caught stealing from a nearby store, and the whole family was carted off to the police station. The youths told police they were bored that day and decided to see who could steal the most. The parents expressed horror and promised discipline. The family was then released just as they have been similar times over the past two years, Osterholt said. "God knows how many times they have been caught, come up with the same line and been released." Osterholt said a check of records later showed that the family had been caught and released in Hawaii the day before the Woodland Hills arrest and had been capturgdafp freed in Los Angeles abut this time last year. The family claims to be from Atlantic City, N.J., but their address and in formation about schools the boys supposedly attend are phony, Osterholt said. Among the names the parents give, Osterholt said, are Melvin Howard Eisen-berg, 41, and Harriett Tro-pea, 34. Cinema today V.
