Jone (right, natch) and Suzanne Bernard of "New Faces of 1956" inspect the good-luck gypsy robe. Chorus boys, among other things, are called gypsies. Back in 1949, when Florence Eaum was dancing in "Bless You All," she gave a beat-up negligee to gypsy Bill Bradley, a boy dancer who was about to open in "Gentlemen Prefer; which it has been parked. T. C, Blondes."

The negligee, called the Gypsy Traveling Robe, is still on Broadway and currently is in possession of T. C. Jones, the female impersonator in "New Faces of 1956." Jones will pass it on to a dancer in the next musical scheduled to open, which will be "Li'l Abner," coming to the St. James Theatre Oct. 13. The robe is adorned with nouvenirs of the shows with Vera Zorina's slippers from "On Your Toes," Jeanmaire's tights from "Pink Tights," Carol Channing's cigaret holder from "The Vamp," a sailor hat from "Ankles Aweigh," Coney Island banners from "By the Beautiful Sea," a piece of Incite from the glass mountain in "Shangri La" and some, sea-shells from "Pipe Dream."

It has a bunch of Julie Andrews' violets from "My Fair Lady," gold anklets from "The King and I," a pair of swim trunks from "Wish You Were Here," a pirate mask from "Peter Pan and Lilo s panties from "Can Can." Also affixed to the garment are: a sleeping cap from "Pajama Game," Arthur Ponwell's purple shirt from "Mr. Wonderful," a pair of phony sideburns from "Plain and Fancy," a pink pigeon from "Fanny," a pennant from "Of Thee I Sing" and another from "Hazel Flagg," and a first baseman's mitt from "Damn Yankees." A recent item here stated that the Out of This World Inn, in East Hampton, L.I., was looking for an old player piano. Couldn't find one. Seems there's actually no shortage of pianolas; co-owner Bob Loewi received 376 letters and 103 phone calls, all from pianola owners anxious to dispose of their period pieces. Most of the writers and callers said they had held onto their pianolas for sentimental reasons. Old Rolls Free Almost all the bellows were shot. Most were in need of other repairs. Several owners offered to throw in their old rolls. One man, who wrote from New London, Conn., had a roll called "Trudy" about Gertrude Ederle swimming the Channel. Another had a roll put out at the time Rudolph VTalentino died called "There's a Xew Star in Heaven Tonight." One lady wanted to trade her pianola for a TV set, A young fellow confided that his father-in-law had a player piano for sale, but added: "If you call him please don't mention my name. I don't speak to the bum." Loewi hasn't bought anything yet. Still going through the mail. Ever wish there were more legal holidays? Here are a few you can celebrate if -ou happen to be in the right place at the rigkt time. No good here in New York: They set aside Jan. 19 for Robert E. Lee in Ala., Ark., Fla., Ga., Ky., La., Miss., N. C, S. C, Tenn. and Texas. Confederate Memorial Day is observed April 26 in Ala., Fla., Ga. and Miss., and on May 10 in the Carolinas. Louisiana marks Huey Long's birthday on Aug. 30 and Tennessee observes Nathan Bedford Forrest's birthday on July 13. Repudiation Day comes Nov. 23 in Maryland, and Oklahoma sets aside Sept. 16 for Cherokee Strip Day. (Maryland is still celebrating repudiation of England's stamp act levying taxes from the Greene's adaptation of the George Bernard Shaw play. Furse is currently designer of "The Sleeping Prince," and his credits include "Hamlet," "Henry V," "Richard III," and "Ivanhoe."
