Quotable Quotes: Go/Jo By The Associated Press "Let us search for a way to break the deadlock, to seek a way out of the ossified situation. Lest war be renewed between us, let us advance toward complete peace." Israeli Premier Gkilda Meir in proposing peace talks with Egypt. * * * "Everybody said I'd have two strikes against me-that by 'Complete Peace being black and being a woman, I'd only nave one-third of a chance. I just said, "Well, I'm going to do one hell of a lot with that third.'" Vumette Carroll. New York theatrical director. * * * "I never thought I could do anything before I was at least 25, but now I'd like to get two books under my belt before GOLDA MEIR ANNE ARMSTRONG Fashion Now EVA JAGGER Elke Sommer Designing Attire for Active Women By Patricia Sbelton Actress Elke Sommer takes fashion lightly--very lightly. "The less the better," she says, bounding across a room barefooted in a bottom-baring tennis pinafore she designed for her Elke Joianna sportswear venture. "When I'm home (Beverly Hills) it's off with everything. I sit in the sun in my yard, in a pair of panties maybe, and paint. Or I garden or play my guitar." Off-stage and off-screen, the German - born actress looks . and moves more like an Olympic track star than the soft, sexy female she usually plays in her acting roles. One cf the first things she did when she arrived in Chicago for her current two-month run in "Love in E Flat" was to go out looking for a mean-armed, tennis partner. Her role as a fashion designer started as nine parts engineering and one part twinge of conscience a year and a half ago--after her friend and now business partner Joianna Ogner told her: "You look like holy hell on the court.' "I couldn't play in ary 'of those fancy clothes I could find," says the realistic Miss Sommer, who thereupon became a tennis clothes designer and has since added bicycle clothes. "The bicycle clothes were Joianna's idea. She's the big bike rider. You know, ecology, health and all that," she comments. Next comes golf. "Thats going to take some study I've never had my hand on a club, and I don't think Joianna knows much about it, either," she says frankly. AS FOR swimwear, the answer is, "Never. They'd be so miniscule nobody would dare wear them.' She also ruling out clothes for race car driving, her No. 1 favorite sport. "That's one time I have absolutely no vanity. Sometimes I think I ought to at least put on make-up, so if I have an accident and die I'll look pretty." Her first time on a track, at Nurburgring in Germany six years ago, she "totaled" a Porsche, climbed out scared but unhurt, got into another car, and kept going. She says she might not have been so nervy if her husband, writer Joe Hyams, who also races, hadn't told her, "Go in again right now or you'll never drive again." Last September she came in second at Nurburgring, beaten by a Swede "who drives all tlie time.' Between driving race cars, playing tennis, p a i n t i n g , sculpting and designing sports clothes, she also manages to squeeze in a stage show once a year and a few movies. HER MOVIES, she quips, have literally become horrors. She recently finished "Chamber of Tortures" with Joseph Gotten and "a bunch of Italians" in Rome and Vienna. "We were in a super castle!" she exclaims. She'll go back to Europe in September to start shooting "some weird thing about the devil" around Rome and Madrid with Tony Perkins and Telly Savalas. At some point along the way she has to start working on those golf clothes for Elke Joianna. She s l a t e s emphatically there'll be no Bermuda shorts in the lot. "They're the absolute worst thing a woman can wear." Miss Sommer states further that when she and Mrs. Ogner, wife of a Los Angeles car dealer, started Elke Joian- na they had no idea what they were getting into. "We thought we'd do five or six dresses. We got a dressmaker to make some samples for us. Then we got a pattern- j maker, and things got into Dial 348-4848, ! Use Want Ads.j terrible proportions. Wa had a bad experience with our first partner, and lost a lot of money. Now we have a new one, Jerry Mann, a big manufacturer, and we're about even again. "I design the clothes. Jerry makes them, and J o i a n n a runs the Business end. When we first started we used to give things to our friends. We don't do that anymore," she continues. About her own personal wardrobe, she says it's full of a lot of clothes she buys and seldom wears. "I always travel with two big suitcases full of things, and never need any of it." On the road, .however, she does dress "a little more" than when she's at home in California. There, if it isn't tennis clothes or merely panties, she's usually in her blue jeans. I'm 2fi." Novelist Julie Goldsmith. * * » "If present trends continue, there is a chance we will almost double woman's participation over the 19G3 convention," Anne Armstrong, cochairman of the Republican National Committee. * * * "We're really ordinary peo- ple-like everyone I guess you can't hide a good thing, though."
