"Apocalypse," written by John Muius, is the story of the Vietnam war and its brutalizing effects on young Americans. It is a shocking, horror story in which the script shows U.S. solr ROURT BEDFORD diets, high on dope, living with Vietnamese girls in a destroyed temple, treating the girls like cows. The soldiers massacre the Vietcong, relish napalm attacks, become little more than animals themselves. The background music is compounded of rock and Wagner; and in the last reel, the Americans direct their machine-gun fire on American helicopters because to them the war has reached a point where all its ingredients, foe and friend, represent evil. Although only SteveMcQueen has been signed for a starring role AL PACING to date, Coppola hopes to sign three other topflight stars from among Marlon Brando, Robert Redford, Paul Newman, M Pacino andGene Hackman.

Young maintained that his customers had complained about the long hair on Judith Quist's legs. Mrs. Quist refused to shave her legs, claiming that no such requirement was made of male employees. The case went to a hearing examiner, Neil Atlas, who decided that proprietor Young had the right to impose grooming habits on his workers and that no laws .supported Mrs. Quist's contention that she was being denied freedom of expression. Efrly Sexist Cfctrei Jack, wash the dishes! Susan, cat the grass! Only when children hear their parents give such orders will real equality between the sexes have been achieved, declares Mary Lynch of Cornell University, Ithaca, N.Y. After interviewing 806 school-age children for her masters thesis, Ms. Lynch discovered that children's chores are still tied to traditional sexist roles. From 6 to 8, boys and girls share household chores evenly, but girls between 12 and 17 work about twice as hard as boys the same age. The girls' work is almost always "womanly," making beds, preparing meals, cleaning the house, while boys from age 10 on usually work in the yard or on cars and other machinery.
