Determination Makes Motel Chapel Click By JUDY PRUSNEK LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) John Carson wanted a chape! for the people who daily check into the motel he manages. The 31-year-old bachelor niinced few southern-drawled words about it all. "I just went out and got one," he says. The venture is now six months old and offers a place for meditation on the run for travelers of all faiths. And when Carson says "everybody just pitched right in," he isn't kidding. Sixteen city businessmen vis- fled by Carson donated products to furnish the tiny house of wor «hip, from white plastic chrysanthemums to dark brown wood panelling and paint. Thirty- three motel employes chipped in .. ADOPTION NOTICE TO: LAWRENCE E.

A large Bibie that was in her family for years was donated by Mrs. Mary Napper, the motel's housekeeper. Four motel em- ployes formed a choir to sing at the 10 a.m. service each Sunday. The group practices on several off-duty nights a week. The "All Faiths Prayer Chapel" seats 40. Everyone at'the motel, on off-duty time, scrubbed, carpeted, hammered and painted away until—there it was. Open around the clock, the chapel has a different minister every Sunday. Included in the past roll have been clergy of the baptist, Roman Catholic, Episcopalian, Lutheran, Methodist, Presbyterian and Jewish faiths. "Our speakers are booked up through April," Carson says. Small and intimate, the dimly lit room with a cross-shaped window-of gold-colored glass is tucked away within the motel courtyard. It has acquired pews, a podium and a $650 organ out of a motel fund. Carson figures the chapel is worth $7,000—by earthyly standards. Travelers are informed of the chapel's existence by small cards next to their telephones, naming the minister who will address that Sunday's service. "'ravelers have donated religious pictures, a statue of St. Christopher (patron saint of travelers) and a gold and red velvet serving plate for the chapel. ADOPTION NOTICE TO: LAWRENCE E.

But one lively practitioner remains, and he is now sharing his mail with the reading public. Published this week is "The Groucho Letters" (Simon and Schuster, $4.95), and it offers a rich compendium of missives to and from America's favorite Marx. Despite a b usy, varied career, the comedian appears never to have been too rushed to sit down and pen a wisely impertinent letter to friend or stranger. 'I like to write letters," Groucho admitted fee other day. "! enjoy the freedom of being able to write to different people in different ways. "And don't forget — a letter is never bugged. Unless some guy in the post office gets nosy with your mail." Marx writes in longhand or else dictates — "and I can make it sound like me when I dictate." He then goes over the etler for grammatical errors, and he admits "I write like a man who never finished public school." It doesn't show. The new volume displays erudition and wisdom that P'h.D.'s might envy. "The Groucho Letters" show .he comic in many moods. In a 1949 letter to columnist ON LEAVE - Airman 3.C. Fred M. Beard, son of Mr. and Mrs. Fred T. Beard of 713 South East Parkway, is home for 30-day leave before departing for duty at Halm Air Force Base in Germany. He is a graduate of Blytheville High School.

Earl Wilson concerning a recent Marx film: "I found your reference to the picture 'Copacabana' in shockingly bad taste. One doesn't speak disparagingly »f the dead." Groucho also reveals a serious side when he writes about television to Goodman Ace in 1960: "A child's mind must inevitably rot, 1 coking at this dreary procession of nonsense night after night, and I tfrink that the next 10 years will produce a population composed entirely of goons." He can also be tender, as in writing of Harpo's death to Betty Comden in 1964: "Having worked with Harpo for forty years, which is longer than most marriages last, his deatti left quite a void in my life. "He was a nice man in the fullest sense of the word. He loved life and lived it joyously and deeply and that's about as good an epitaph as anyone can have." *•••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••*••••••••••• W/LSON NEWS >*••«•••••••••••••••• MRS. W. A.

By NADEANE WALKER LONDON (AP) - False moustaches for men may soon be as common as false eyelashes for women if the sell-out success of a Chelsea shop is any indication. You'll have to get up early in the morning if you want to buy one, though. Every day Simon Shop get a fresh supply they're sold out in about two hours. Admittedly, the shop can only get about 20 at a tune, for the wig men who make moustaches of real hair (no joke shop stuff, this) weren't geared for the unexpected demand. They only turned out a few for film stars and actors, and never dreamed that a wider market existed. Then Simon Boyle, 26, got the bright idea of pulling a few on sale along with his mod gear for men. The idea was a sleepeg, according to Simon. "It first occurred to me two years ago, after I made a false moustache for George Harrison." His bea- tle friend has since grown his own lip adornment, but at that time he just wanted to disguise himself so, he could have a quiet holiday in France without the screaming fans and thickets of autograph books. Simon made the moustache, George wore it, and nobody knew one of the Beatles was in Paris. Simon didn't do anything about it until two weeks ago, when he brought a few to his shop as a gimmick. They sold, a Sunday paper mentioned it, and the rush was on. Along with eager customers, stacks of mail orders poured in. "It's fantastic," says Simon, iiill looking a bit dazed. "I reckon it may not last more than a few months though." He could be wrong, according to the barbers. The big attraction, aside from the faddy one, is that the stick-on moustaches don't need the daily trim and grooming the real thing requires. A lot of men who had a secret yen to adorn their upper lip found it loo much bother. The mod mwstache of the moment is the "Viva Zapata," a droopy Mexican villian style that a lot of young fashionables affect. But there are 34 other styles available, :•• duding everything from the Hitler toothbrush to the Clark Gable .hairline, the Salvador.: Dali twister and the RAF bristler. They cost from $4.20, for tun- id mini-models, to $7 for flourishing "Viva Zapatas," and come on a transparent nylon net backing that is glued to the lip with spirit gum. They are far more convincing then false eyelashes, too. "Some fellows buy them just t» wear for parties," Simon says, "just for a laugh, like." But the pretty young lady assistant in his shop says that her best customer are not the longhaired youth. "You'd be surprised, but mostly it's conventional middle- aged men who come in to ask for false moustaches. We cut a lock of their hair to get an exact color match." There seems little hope that moustaches are about to oust Hie long-hair fad. However, long hair, beard and moustache are considered too much. When fashionable hairdresser Michael decided to wear a "Viva Zapala." he sacrificed his herd. Some of the Simon Shop customers shaved off the real thing when they discovered tfk false ones. Less trouble, and less expensive in the end.
