PERSONALITY PLUS By ROBIN ADAMS SLOAN Liz ud Henry: Together Namath: Making plenty, again. Dick and Friend: Aniseed &: Helps. : <fc It lit Taybr teeing Heary Wyiberg agiln now tfcat Ifcimgg are off with Richard BurtM?- K.a, Suta Fe, N.M. A: Yes, Liz likes Henry and she kept in touch with the used-car salesman even after she and Burton reconciled briefly. So Wynberg is having the last laugh. He refused offers to write and sell the story of his torrid love affair with Mrs. Burton though he was offered nearly $1 million for such a book. Now Henry is glad he kept his mouth and his typewriter shut. Q: Q: Does Joe Namath nave any money left after hit swinging life style? — aE., Norfolk, Va. A: Don't worry about old Joe- he has a brilliant business manager. His estimated annual earnings are between $600,000 and a million. In addition to his football contract, Joe does at least six TV appearances a year (worth $15,000 each), between six and ten commercials ($100,000 or more apiece), owns restaurants, a summer camp, real estate, shopping centers, apartment houses, office buildings, etc. Wh-ow! QUESTION YOU NEVER ASKED: What did Henry Kissinger's bride, Nancy, get for a wedding present? Why, she got a wonderful gift only the Secretary of State could give her. Henry promised to stop biting his fingernails. IS A DOG THE PRESIDENT'S BEST FRIEND? Sorry about that, folks, but it looks as if even the Nixon dog, "King Timahoe," may have defected. Political reporter Alexander Cockburn says the Irish setter actually shuns the President and has to be lured into the Chief Executive's presence with aniseed, which he loves. Aides sprinkle aniseed on the President's trouser knees, whereupon "Timahoe" hurls himself at Nixon, "fawning and licking, presenting a touching picture of canine loyality" for the benefit of photographers and onlookers. Q: If Sinatra is so rich, how come he needed to have that recent concert tour? — M.A., Kockland, Me. A: Sinatra must be rich. He spends about one million a year just on living expenses and staff payroll. Money wasn't the reason for the tour, although Frank will make plenty. It was reading the reviews received by Bob Dylan. Right after Dylan's first concert, Sinatra called his managers and said, "What about setting up a tour for me?" Q: Was Liza Minnelli really going with Ben Vereen, the Black dancer? Was that for real? - P.O., Waltnam, Mass. A: Yes, the romance was for real, but it's all over now between Liza and the "Pippin" star. She is going to rest in Europe this summer with her godmother, Kay Thompson. Robin Adams Sloan welcomes questions from readers.

TV awards are given JWS Courtroom record set By JERRY BUCK Associated Press Writer LOS ANGELES (AP)-A poignant drama tracing a black woman's path from slavery to the civil rights movement and two zany comedies were the big winners of television's "Best of the Year" awards. Cicely Tyson was named actress of the year for specials Tuesday night for her performance in the title role of "The Autobiography of Miss Jane Pittman," arid the show was named as television's outstanding special of 1973. All of the performers, writers and directors competing for the newly established "Best of the Year" awards previously were announced Emmy winners. "Thanks to all the Jane Pitt- mans of the world," Miss Tyson said during the 28th Emmy Awards, telecast by NBC from Hollywood's Pantages Theater. She won over Mildred Natwick of "The Snoop Sisters." Alan Alda, the anti-establishment Army surgeon of "MA-S-H," and Mary Tyler Moore, who portrays the bouyant assistant producer of a television news show on "The Mary Tyler Moore Show," won as actor and actress of the year for series. They beat out Telly Savalas of "Kojak" and Michael Learned of "The Waltons," Emmy winners as performers in dramatic series. "M-A-S-H," an irreverent spoof of the Army set in wartime Korea, was selected the outstanding comedy series. The British production of "Upstairs, Downstairs" was named the outstanding drama series. Hal Holbrook was named actor of the year for specials for his portrayal of the skipper in "Pueblo." He won over Oscar winner William Holden of "The Blue Knight." Michael Moriarty and Joanna Miles were named supporting actor and actress of the year for "The Glass Menagerie," which starred Katharine Hepburn. "Colurnbo" was picked as the outstanding limited series. "The Carol Burnett Show" and Us star, Miss Burnett, won Emmys for the second consecutive year as the outstanding music-variety series. Lily Tomlin and her special, "Lily," were honored for the best comedy-variety special. "Mario Thomas and Friends in Free to Be ... You and Me" was named the outstanding children's special. Robert Butler was named series director of the year for "The Blue Knight" and Dwight Hemion won specials director of the year for "Barbra Strei- sand ... and Other Musical Instruments." Emmys for outstanding achievement in sports programming went to "ABC's Wide World of Sports" and to its host, Jim McKay. may not seek re-election Vega repairs needed DETROIT (AP) - General Motors says it is responsible for engine damage caused by overheating in up to 1.3 million Chevrolet Vegas and will make needed repairs free of charge. Every Vega the company has made is involved in GM's offer. At the same time, the auto giant disputed on Tuesday a report by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration that 441,000 GM cars might have a defect that could cause accelerators to jam. GM said it did not consider the problem, involving 1965-1968 Buicks and 1970 Cadillacs, "safety related." The auto maker said it would offer the Vega repairs to owners who have driven their cars less than 50,000 miles and have not abused the vehicles. Normally the subcompact's aluminum engine carries a 12-month, 12,000-mile warranty. The Vega was introduced in 1970. GM said the Vega engine is more susceptible to damage caused by overheating than conventional cast-iron engines because aluminum does not stand up to extreme heat as well. Overheating could warp the engine block and cylinders, requiring hundreds of dollars in repairs, a Chevrolet spokesman said. He declined to estimate how much the firm expected to spend on the repairs. The safety administration said a potential defect in two brackets in engine mounts of 1965-1968 Buick Electra 225s and Wildcats and 1970 Cadillacs with cruise control, except El Dorados, could cause the accelerators to jam. ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Rep. Aubrey Dirlam, R-Redwood Falls, says he will probably not seek re-election this fall. "It's not an easy decision to make but I guess in every career the time comes when you say you have served long enough," Dirlam said Tuesday. "I could change my mind, but I'm leaning negative." Dirlam, 60, was first elected to the Minnesota House in 1940 from the southwestern Minnesota district and has served 17 consecutive terms. He served as majority leader in the 1963, 1965, 1967 and 1969 sessions. Dirlam was minority leader in the 1957,1973 and 1974 legislative sessions and served as House Speaker in the 1971 session. Dirlam and Rep. August Mueller, R-Arlington, who is also retiring, have the longest tenure of any state legislators. If Dirlam steps down, it would mean Republicans would have a host of new floor leaders in the 1975 session. Reps. Thomas Newcome of White Bear Lake and Charles Weaver of Anoka, assistant minority leaders, have previously announced they will not seek reelection. Meanwhile, Senate GOP leader Harold Krieger of Rochester says Gov. Wendell Anderson's administration is trying to create an impression of financial well-being in state government to help Anderson's re election bid. Kriger referred to the expected surplus of $55 million in the state treasury at the end of the current bicnnium on June 30. "All this misleading emphasis on the surplus, which will dissipate at the start of the next biennium, is obviously designed to enhance the governor's reelection bid," said Krieger. He said the DFL administration has benefited from federal revenue sharing funds, from having inflation bring more tax money into the treasury, and f rpom having switched expenditures from one biennium to the next. LEEDS, England (AP) — George Arthur Linstrum, 78, who claims a world record for the most court appearances, has been back in the dock for the 592nd time. The latest trip was Tuesday— 24 hours after his last appearance for being drunk and disorderly. He made his 500th appearance before a magistrate May 29,1971, and found his way into the Guiness Book of Records. The major sources of solid refuse in Canada are bottles, cans and junked cars. Microwave warning proposed WASHINGTON (AP) - The Food and Drug Administration today proposed permanent warning labels on all microwave ovens, but rejected a Consumers Union petition calling for more comprehensive warnings and safety testing requirements. The suggested warning label would read: "Do Not Attempt to Operate This Oven Using Microwave Energy With: (a) object caught in door (b) door that does not close properly, (c) damaged door, hinge latch or sealing surface." A second proposed label would advise owners and repairmen that only properly qualified personnel should repair microwave ovens. The FDA said the warning statement now is required in owner instruction manuals, but that the manuals are not usually accessible in apartments or food vending areas. On the basis of its own test results, Consumers Union in March 1973 recommended that consumers not buy microwave ovens. The organization said it had found evidence of measurable radiation leakage from 15 brands of the most popular makes. i I I I Water Watch Data in 'this chart show the coliform (potential disease-carrying bacteria) index for water at several points checked weekly by the Fergus Falls Health Department.

Offices destroyed DULUTH, Minn. (AP) — An early morning fire destroyed several doctor and dentist offices and heavily damaged six business firms in the West End Clinic in Duluth today. Authorities said the fire was contained primarily to the sec. ond floor of the building where the doctor and dentist offices were located. The six business firms on the ground floor were damaged by smoke and water. There was no estimate of damage, but firemen said the blaze started either in faulty wiring or in a smoldering waste basket in a second floor toilet. The alarm was turned in at 1:55 a.m., and fire crews were on the scene until about 5:& a.m. Fergis Falls (Mi.) dirnl Wed., May 29, 1974 2 Walter Dickiisao dies at Battle Lake Walter Dickinson, 80, a former resident of Foxhome, died early Wednesday at the Gearhart Nursing Home in Battle Lake.

(AP) -The emotionally-charged trial of two American Indians saw its first ejection of a sympathizing spectator, when the national chairman of the American Indian Movement (AIM) was hauled out of court Tuesday. John Trudell was taken in the bear-hug grasp of a U.S. mar- shal from the courtroom of U.S. District Judge Fred Nichol. He continued shouting while ejected that the trial of AIM leaders Russell Means and Dennis Banks was unconstitutional. AIM national headquarters at St. Paul said Trudell is from Niobrara, Neb. Trudell's outburst erupted during Means' questioning of a Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) ALL in GOOD MEASURE • fluffy, Skin.

Means and Banks have Nichol's permission to question witnesses of their choice, and little White Man was being quizzed about his knowledge of the Indian sun dance, sweat lodge and the peace pipe. Frequent objections were being raised by Justice Department attorney Earl Kaplan, who argued some questions were irrelevant to charges of burglary, theft and other felonies lodged against the defendants. Means and Banks are accused of leading roles in the occupation of Wounded Knee, S.D., last year. Suddenly, Trudell rose from his third-row seat. "It's an unconstitutional trial!" he yelled. Nichol shouted to marshals to remove him. A buzz of excitement swept the predominantly Indian audience of AIM backers. As a marshal moved into the row of seats where Tnidell was at the far wall, he quickly hopped onto the backboard of the seats in front. Then he leaped onto two more and into the courtroom well, still protesting the trial was unconstitutional and "They deserve a trial by their peers." As he jumped up and down, a marshal pinned his arms in a hug and with other marshals hustled him out. At least two other Indians accused marshals of shoving them as they milled in the aisle with other svmpathizers. No others were removed, however. Nichol told marshals Trudell's pass into court was being revoked. All spectators must get clearance and some sign on a waiting list at a nearby office manned by AIM and police. Of the 12 regular and four alternate jurors, all are Caucasian except a Mexican-American male. A part-Indian candidate during jury selection was eliminated by government's peremptory challenge. In contrast to the Trudell outburst were the occasional muted coo ings of two infants held by young Indian mothers. Little White Man, who was a BIA captain at the time of the occupation, and FBI agent Kenneth Jacobsen testified Tuesday they were on duty early March 6 at a government roadblock when a car coming out of the village was stopped. They said ammunition, a bayonet and money bag were found in the front and back seats and floor, and four firebombs in the trunk. Four bottles, apparently quart-size, were introduced during Jacobsen's testimony. He said the bottles had rags in the necks and smelled of gasoline when removed from a box by another FBI agent. Jacobsen said he wrote his initials on the bottles for identification and listed other items confiscated from the vehicle. Three persons in the car including Means' brother William were arrested and jailed, while a fourth who lay injured in the rear seat was taken by ambulance to a hospital. The defense claims FBI agents and BIA police had no business stopping the car, which the government charges was stole from Clive Gildersleeve, coowner of the Wounded Knee Trading Post. Attorneys for Banks and Means sought to show the car was coming out of the village on agreement with government officials to bring the injured man to a hospital. It flew a "white flag" on the radio antenna, Jacobsen acknowledged. Means read earlier testimony of Gildersleeve's wife Agnes to try to show the car keys were voluntarily handed over by her husband. Mrs. Gildersleeve quoted AIM leader Stan Holder as telling Gildersleeve, "I'll have to have the keys. We need the car." "Did your husband then give him the keys?" she was asked. "Yes sir," she replied.
