People in the news : r Mostel cremated at secret site Wf war m; P Surf and shver The swimming season isn't over vet, that Is, if you're as brave as 21-vear-old Lisa AAooney and her dog, AAolson. The two plunged into the waters of Lake Ontario which were a brisk 17 degrees. Actor Zero Mostel, whose flamboyant antics on and off the stage shocked and amused his fans, was cremated Friday without ceremony or fanfare as he wished. Mostel died Thursday night at Thomas' Jefferson Hospital in Philadelphia at the age of 62. Marvin Krause, a family spokesman, said he signed the papers authorizing the cremation and burial, which would be private at an undisclosed site. "I don't want to know when, where or how," he said. Krause said no member of the family was present at the cremation. He said he. was acting on telegraphed instructions from Mrs. Mostel, and had left the burial site up to the Olivier Bair Funeral Home in Philadelphia. The funeral home would not reveal the site and said it was acting according to family wishes. "It is done," Krause said. "Those were his wishes and I suppose her (Mrs. Mostel's) wishes as well." Mostel was in Philadelphia to star as Shylock in a production of The Merchant, a variation of Shakespeare's Merchant of Venice. A colorful philosopher, he once proposed his own formula, calling it Mostel's Law. In it he stated: "The freedom of any society varies proportionately with the volume of its laughter." Atheist Hungary win praise from Graham CAPLAN'S I KvanKclist Billy Graham said Friday his first gospel crusade behind the Iron Curtain changed his thinking about communism and praised offieial- lv athniKt Hnnfarv -as a nation where people, can "freely worship God. I have not joined the Communist party. Nor have I been asked to join, but the world is changing and both sides are beginning to understand each other more now." "Come on over for lunch, we're having frog's legs." That's the way Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau says he responded to California Governor Jerry Brown's request for a meeting. Trudeau told a new conference Friday he would be lunching with the -governor later in the day, but made it clear the occasion was informal. "I am told he' wants to talk with me about the general problem of oil and gas. I don't know any more. "He asked to see me, and I -said sure, tome on over to lunch, we're having frogs legs. ."He just phoned and said, 'can I come over?' And I said yes," a laugh-- ing Trudeau explained, . Montreal women are paying up to $70 to have their hair done like Far- ran Fawcett-Majors, the American television star . and sex goddess. Hairdresser Odette Ginnet says the popularity of the lion's mane style has "become . something of a joke" as "day after day they come in with pictures of Farrah and want exactly the same look." 7 ligflly pul A highly publicized attempt by Boston Mayor Kevin H. White to embarrass delinquent taxpayers backfired Friday when it was learned one of the people owing money died several years ago. Lionel Goldman, one of about 20 people whose names or pictures were posted inside City Hall Thursday, died about five years ago, ; said flis son, Barry Goldman. White said the photographs will hang in the main lobby for one week to embarrass properly owners into paying. The display is part of a six-month campaign to collect an estimated $50 million in back taxes: The family might sue the city, Goldman said. Almost $1,400 has been contributed for an operation to correct the crossed eyes of 11-year-old Solomon Green of the Bahamas. Claudine Goller of Toronto, who with . her . husband,. Steve, opened a bank fund in Solomon's name, said Thursday the bank balance was $1,397. . Mrs. Goller said Solomon's eyes have been crossed since , birth and she and her husband decided to try and help the boy because he. is .often ridiculed by other children.. The Gollers met So- . lomon while on holidays in the Bahamas. His mother, an employee in the hotel where the couple stayed, supports eight children. - DEATHS By The Canadian Press BRANTFORD David Edwin Mitson, KB, artist and ' one of original members of the Dum-bells, tourjng group which entertained troops during First World War, Wednesday.
