Tuesday Evening, December 3, 1957. Lennie Bernstein Leads Hectic Life, Says Wife By GAY PAULEY United Press Women's Editor NEW YORK (UP)—Mrs. Leonard Bernstein once observed that her musician-husband is difficult "to live with." "But what man worth living with isn't?" she asked. "Docs this still apply?" I asked, her today as we talked of her ' iutu aKlDb husband's new job — permanent conductor of the New York Philharmonic Orchestra. "I stick with my statement," she said, and laughed. "Actually marriage to Lennie is hard only because his life p is so hectic. As a person, he is even - tempered, he's neat, organized and thoughtful." To some, Bernstein is a musical genius. he's such a collection "To me of things ... I know him so well," | Mrs. Bernstein said, than husband.

"That's exactly what I did last week after the news of the Philharmonic was announced. . "Lennie called up and complained. 'This is rest? I've kept count and 13 people have been in and out of this room in the last three hours.' "He ended up talking the doctors into letting him watch some operations." Domestication of Bernstein began when he met Felicia Montealegre at a party. Chilean - born, she had come to New York to study piano but got so intrigued after some acting lessons, she switched interests. •Mrs. Bernstein, 35. a fragile blonde with, great brown eyes, said she didn't know about her husband "but for me it was love at first sight." They were married in 1951 and have two children-Jamie, 5 and blonde, like her mother, and Alexander Serge, 2, named for the late conductor of the Boston Philharmonic, Serge Koussevitzky, who helped guide Bernstein's early conducting career. Daughter Shows Talent Jamie shows signs of developing some of her father's talents. "Whe will listen to music by the hour," said Mrs. Bernstein, "or she will sit at the niano and improvise. She will hear a melody and shout, 'Mamm.3, that's Mozart." "I don't encourage her. To me, this is a fiightening thing in a 5-year-old." Mrs. Bernstein didn't drop her acting career by any means when she married the muscian. Most of her work has been concentrated on television. "I think a woman has to keep her own identity," she said. "Acting lets me preserve some of mine. But I've just about quit the piano. I loathe it when I don' play well... and I really don't practice enough. Lennie's not critical, but I know if I hit a wrong note, he'll shout, 'That's A-flat... A-flat.' " sons have been killod in traffic in '" his county since last Jan. 1.

The basic reason for this one- sided handicap in the age of Sputnik and space rocketry is a simple one, linguists and scientists said :oday. Russians by the horde are learn- .,ig to read and speak English. But only a handful of American students are acquiring a • -orking knowledge of the Russian lan- uage. Only five public nigh schools and six private prep schools in the United States offer courses in Russian, according to Dr Kenneth Mildenberger, director of the foreign language program of the Modern - Language Association of America. About 300 students take the courses. Or a quarter - million American college students studying foreign languages, Mildenberger said, less than 5,000 are learning Russian.

The U.S. Supreme Court ordered new trials for the nine Communists last June 17 and dismissed charges against five other party leatlers in southern California. Waters said reasons for the government's decision included the un-availability of witnesses and "inability to satisfy evidenciary requirements." The nine party members convicted under the Smith Act were William Schneiderman,-Mrs. Dorothy Healy Connelly, Frank Carlson, Ben Dobbs, Ernest Otto Fox, Carl Rude Lambert, Albert J. Lima, Loretta Slravus Stack and Olela O'Conner Yates. The so-called "second string" Communist leaders were freed by the high court on grounds that the statute of limitations nullified that par of the indictment which charged the defendants with helping to "organize" the Communist Party. .
