I5e Column 1 Fashion puts Halston into leisure class His American-point-of-view designs clothe the famous By Dorothy Collin Chicagt Tribunt Prest Strvlel NEW YORK Roy Halston Frowick. THE American fashion designer, confidante of Jacqueline Onassis, creator of beautiful clothes for beautiful ladies, sits at his desk, sipping ice water, gazing thru mirror glasses. ' He is dressed in black turtleneck and pants, complemented by a cream-colored Ultrasuede jacket. He is surrounded by enough mirrors and glass to make the Verseilles Hall of Mirrors look like the Black Hole of Calcutta. He is very happy. He is talking about money. He is saying that because he sold his business to the Norton Simon conglomerate two years ago for a reported $12 million in stock, he has been able to expand to a conglomerate within a conglomerate. "I'm in a more professional league than the rest of the dress-making world," he says carefully, but gleefully. "I'm ambitious, you see." Indeed. HALSTON, 43. THE BOY from Des Moines who attended Chicago's Art Institute and got his start designing hats for Kukia, Fran, and Ollie's Fran Allison, is trying to do it all. He is combining the fun and fame of couture designing for rich and famous women with the money-making retail businesses that can make him a fortune. He has so many things going under the umbrella of Halston enterprises that he can't remember them all. r , There is Halston Originals, his better dress line which is sold in 280 stores across the country at prices from $150 to $1,000. That brought in $16 million in retail sales. last year. There are Halston Menswear, Halston 3 raincoats, rain skirts, rain hats, etc., Halston 5 skirts, blouses, pants, Halston Hats, Hal--ston McCall's patterns, Halston luggage, Hal- ston furs, and the Halston boutique, featuring such goodies as $100 cashmere sweaters. '- HALSTON PERFUME was just Introduced, at $G0 an ounce the most expensive American perfume. Coming up is Halston lounge wear, a line based on the collection Halston designed for the American team to wear at the 197S Pan American Games and the 1976 Olympics. The Pan Am and Olympic collections will be marketed thru Montgomery Ward & Co. and the prospect of ail those new customers delights the man who dresses the likes of Jackie, perennial best-dressed woman Mrs. William Babe Paley, Liza Minnelli, and Washington (Post publisher Katherine Graham. "There will be 800 million people, watching the Olympics," he said. "Doesn't that freak you out? That's really getting your name known." .'. , ' Anyone having as much fun as Halston is bound to have detractors, and he does. They say that be isn't so much a designer and fash-Ion innovator as a salesman, that James Gala- -nos is really the premier American designer, that Bill Blass does better sportswear, that Oscar de la Renta does prettier dresses. - " BUT HALSTON'S "LADIES" love him and the casual but elegant clothes he designs. "He understands the different lives people live," said Mrs. Graham. "He is with the times." . And fashion experts have called him the most influential designer in the world along with Yves St, Laurent, the French creative genius no'one accuses of not being innovative.

Story on Page 1, Sec. 2. Lake Michigan, trou fishing bim By Casey Bukro . Environment Editor , THE ILLINOIS Department of Conservation Wednesday ordered a ban' on sports fishing of Lake Michigan trout and drastically reduced the number of commercial crews allowed to catch bloater chubs and yellow perch. The order, issued by Tony Dean,-conservation director, is part of a four-state effort to save the three Lake Michigan species from extinction. The new regulations go into effect July 1. The ban on sports fishing for lake trout, which already applies to commercial firms, is expected to last at least a year, he said. DEAN SAID there Is a large . number of lake trOut in Lake Michigan, but that the fish are n reproducing naturally. The ban is necessary, he said, because annual restocking of the trout "has not resulted in a self-sustaining population." A fish biologist for the Michigan Department of Natural Resources said there were about 5 million lake trout in Lake Michigan in 1972 when the last population estimate was made. "The trout there are all hatchery plants," said Edward Brown of the United States Fish and Wildlife Service. . "They are spawning, but they are not hatching or surviving." SPORT fishermen are expected to return caught lake , trout to the lake. There is no sports fishing ban on coho salmon, tho there is a commercial ban on the once-endangered species. The order also allows only three full-time Illinois ' com-, mercial fishing firms to catch the bloater chubs and yellow perch. It is expected to put 8 to 15 of the state's full-time fishermen out of work along with all part-time commercial fishermen. . tv t VIOLATIONS OF the order carry a maximum fine of $300 and confiscation of . nets for commercial fishermen, and $30 fines against sport fisherman for. each fish ,taken. , . , t Illinois has 45 licensed" commercial fishing 'operations, but a only a minority are full-time. Dean imposed a quota of 30,-000 pounds a year on the catch of Lake Michigan bloater chubs, the most valuable of the commercial fish remaining in the lake and the one conservation officials are most worried about. ,.';'' Dean said the other Lake Michigan states Michigan, Wisconsin, and Indiana have taken similar steps to preserve dwindling fish supplies.

Bill to ease penally! 1,81-62! on pot Med By Ed McManus Chicago Tribunt Preu Strvic SPRINGFIELD, 111 In an unusual parliamentary maneuver, the Illinois House Wednes- -day killed a bill to ease the penalty for marijuana use. The vote was 81 to 62 on a motion by Rep. Gale Schisler DM London Mills to strike the enacting clause of the bill, which would have eliminated jail terms for private use of marijuana and would have established a $100 fine as the maximum penaltyi The 62 votes against the motion were not an indication ' of the bill's support. Many representatives said they opposed the bill but thought it was unfair that it was not given a full hearing. THE BILL,' sponsored by Rep. Leland Rayson D., Tin-ley Park, was at the amendment stage Wednesday, and under normal procedure it would have been moved to Families' plea; Bring dead Marines home from Viet From Tribunt Wirt Sarvlc THE FAMILY of Lance Corp. Darwin Judge in Marshalltown, la., placed their trust Wednesday in the United States Marine Corps and its promise to try to get Judge's body back from Saigon so loved ones can bury him at home. ;' Judge, 19, was one of the last Americans to die in the Vict Nam War. He and Corp. Charles McMahon Jr., 21, of Woburn, Mass., were killed in tho Communist shelling of Tan Son Nhut Air Base as they guarded the American defense attache's office. That was the chaotic day Americans were being evacuated from Saigon. The Pentagon confirmed Wednesday that the bodies had been left behind in Saigon in the confusion of the evacuation; - - UNTIL NOW. both families had been led to believe that the bodies had been taken aboard the carrier Midway and would be returned to the U.S. "Different peoplo thought others had , taken care of the matter," said Pentagon spokesman Joseph Loitin. "It was certainly not that the effort had not been made. - "The State Department is doing everything possible to arrange their re-; turn. Last Thursday, Laitin said, field reports indicated that the bodies were on the Midway. But when the Department of the Navy messaged the Midway to make funeral arrangements, the ship reported it didn't have the bodies, he said. IN WOBURN, McMahon's father, Charles Sr., said, "I am good and mad. I will even go to the Vict Cong to get my son's body back." ; In Marshalltown, a spokesman for the Judgo family said the Marine Corps had pledged to the parents it will act in their behalf. "We're hanging loose right now," Greg De Saulniers, husband of the dead Marine's sister, Lorraine, told The Tribune. "We're not giving up hope. The Marine Corps has promised to help us to the best of their ability. We have full faith in thera and what they're trying to do." De Saulniers said Judge's postman father, Henry, and mother, Ida, were "indisposed." "THEY ARE unavailable for com-1 ment until Darwin is back with us," De Saulniers said. v, i . , i - r A memorial service for Judgo was held Sunday at the Iowa Soldiers Home in Marshalltown. It was conducted by two Methodist ministers and friends of the youth, who knew him best as a congenial home town lad fresh from high school graduation last June. He died after less than a year of military service. -.' 1 1 ' The Marines' bodies initially" were taken to the Seventh Day Adventist . Hospital near the airport. "' -N ' Marines and, embassy officials in Saigon called the hospital in the confusing final hours to arrange to remove tho bodies and were told that U.S. officials already had removed them, Laitin said.
