(AP) - Denise Darcel, the bosomy French actress once famed for sexy movie roles, was fined $300 Tuesday for shoplifting $34 worth of underth- ings, despite a show of dramatic talent. After a trial at which the courtroom-packed audience appeared to enjoy her performance, Municipal Judge Arthur Huttoe imposed the fine with the alternative of 36 days in jail. Miss Darcel posted $500 appeal bond. Even the judge could not repress smiles as the impulsive actress, in rapid-fire, heavily accented English, interrupted witnesses. THREE SAW HER 'Ilirce detectives of Jefferson Stores testified they saw the blonde actress, who says she is 42, stuff brassieres, slifrs and other items into a shopping bag, then leave without paying. Miss Darcel said she intended to pay for the merchandise, and was merely trying to nail down a taxi first, since she was in a hurry. She testified she purchased several items. “Tlien I wanted some bras sieres, but the girl was not there,” she said. “1 not hide anything. I tried on the brassieres in front of a mirror.” She demonstrated how she did it over her clothes. “ FAST SHOPPER” "I’m a very fast shopper,” Miss Darcel continued, waving her hands and shaking her shoulder-length hair. “Oh, I’ll be late, where is the shoe department?” tht* defendant said, recalling the incident. “I'll be right back. I’ll wait for a taxi while waiting for shoes. “I put my foot out the door with three shopping bags, and three men grabbed me and said, ‘You’re under arrest.' ” Miss Darcel said she was rushing to ca»ch a plane for New York, where she was to appear in a show, but had not even packed. The Paris-born actress said she and her husband, Robert At kinson, came to Miami June 4 In 1947 she filmed “To the Victor” in Hollywood. Later she starred in “Battleground” op posite Van Johnson and the late John Hodiak.

William D. Johnson, a special assistant to Gov. Shafer who headed the investigation, said his findings showed that the student protest involved only academic matters without racial undertones. Some $248,000 was earmarked in the original Cheyney budget for this purchase. Other features in the expanded plan would authorize $1.7 million in renovation work for three existing facilities—Pennsylvania Hall, the Emlen complex and Humphreys Hall. All three projects had been programmed for the 1969-71 budget.
