HOLLYWOOD - Bill Cosby has concluded work In "Uptown Saturday Night at Metro and now heads for Las Vegas where a Hilton Hotel gig will keep him occupied through Jan. 10. Hes looking forward to his wife and four children spending the holidays with him In Vegas. Hes looking ahead with even greater expectation to the end of his Hilton hitch when he returns home to Amherst, Mass, and resumes his post at the University of Massachusetts as instructor of urban and lower economic education. "Ive been laying off TV since CBS refused to change the time slot of my variety show and cancelled the program early this year. He also doesnt have much interest In guesting on other stars shows. "Frankly, says Bill, "Theres no one Id feel groovy working with on the tube except Flip Wilson or Lily Tomlin." His ungroovy vibes generate even to champion comedienne Lucille Ball. From the way he talks, particularly to Lucille Eall. I dont like her politics, he offers by way of explanation. And goes on to say he cant cope with working with people of Re publican political persuasions. Its such a viewpoint (narrow mindedness seems more like it) that also places such personalities as Jimmy Stowart, Sammy Davis, and, of course, John Wayne on his wont-work with list. Marilyn Beck Hollywood Thats why I never take part in the Share charity affair they hold out here each year. Its-supposed to be the chance for us show biz folks all to get together. Well, I dont want to get together with a lot of them. I send in my check and stay away. j MGMs Grand Hotel is being referred to as the grand fiasco in Las Vegas quarters. The $170 million elephantine structure which opened its doors earlier this month might be closing them permanently unless fresh money can be acquired fast. Im told Kirk Kerkorlan has already put $10 million into the pot since the hotel's opening, and according to financiers Ive checked with, that $10 million is just a drop in the financial bucket needed to keep the 2,100-room hotel afloat. At the moment, a fresh fortune is being sought from money interests both here and abroad. In ordinary times, it might not prove all that difficult to find backers interested in gambling on a Vegas hotel. But with times what they are with the gasoline . shortage and cutbacks of airline schedules already affecting Vegas business-Jthe future hardly looks grand for the Grand. ' Dick Van Dyke has volunteered to help Bill Macy overcome his drinking problem. Its help to which Bill has become receptive since so much tsk-tsking has gone on about Macys impromptu, Improper "performance at the recent Yorkin and Lmc TV academy testimonial. . The irony of all this, of course, is the fact Macy cot his biggest chartce to shine on "Maude this season in the two-party story on alcoholism entitled, "Walters Problem. 1 ' Bing and Kathy Crosby will be turning . the tables on their household staff again this year, playing servants to their servants at the Christmas-day festivities at the Crosby Hillsboro, Calif., manor. Bings taken off on a duck-hunting outing to land the game that will comprise the maincourse of the feast Kathy will prepare for 40. The three teen-age Crosby youngsters will be pitching in to help cook and serve for the household staff and the staffs relatives and friends. And when dinner is completed and dishes are , done, Bing as he does every year will sit at the piano and lead the crowd in Christmas carols. ; The way things are' stacking up, "Scarecrow co-stars Gene Heckman and Al Pacino could end up competing against each other for 1974 best actor honors. Gene is hot in the running as a result of his work in that film. Al also deserves a "Scarecrow nomination, but will more likely earn one for "Scrpico. v , . Before Im off thd subject, I want to express a very sincere "thank you to Dick Van Dyke for his touching note expressing appreciation over the manner in which I handled the story of his battle with alcoholism. "It makes me glad I gave you the story first. writes Dick. It makes me glad, too. Dick has been bombarded with letters since the artice appeared, commending him for his courage In speaking out . and noting that his disclosures have given many the courage to seek help for their alcoholic problems, too. , Tell Me Why by Arkady Leokum A CASTLE FOR CHRISTMAS Walt Disney, Why Does A Year Have 365 Days? There are two ways of measuring time that man uses: one is natural, the other is created by him. The second, the hour, the week, are exam- pies of time measurements that man has "made up for i his convenience. But there are ! two natural divisions of time: ' the day and the year. , Each day is marked by a , period of darkness and of ; light, so it is easy to measure ; a day. The year is marked by - the changing of the seasons, !;the position of the sun in the sky. And these changes take " place because the earth goes 7 around the sun. When it i reaches the same place, an-: other year begins. ; So a year is the time it takes the earth to circle the sun. This takes 365 days, 5 hours, 48 minutes 46 seconds. This actual year is called a solar year (solar comes from the Latin word for sun.) More than 6,000 years ago, the Egyptians were the first to measure a year with any exactness, and they considered a year to be 365 days. But what about those extra 5 hours, 48 minutes, 46 seconds? Over the years they add up to quite a number of days. This is what lead to the creation of leap year. Julius Caesar (in 46 B.C.) ordered that each year was to have 365 days, except every fourth year. The fourth year would be a leap year of 366 days to use up the fraction of day left over in each ordinary year. But this calendar was still 11 minutes and 13 seconds longer than the time the earth takes to circle the sun. So in 1582, Pope Gregory XIII ordered that leap year should be skipped in the last year of every century unless that year could be divided by 400. The Chuckle Box Ken: Have a peanut. Kate: No, theyre fattening. Ken: How do you know? Kate: Have you ever seen a skinny elephant? Old Lady: Tommy, suppose there were only two pieces of cake, one large piece and one small piece. Which one would you give to your brother? Tommy: Do you mean my little brother or my big broth-. er? . 1 Win a New Book of Knowledge Yearbook for Writing About "THE MOST INTERESTING PERSON I KNOW" DR. JOYCE BROTHERS mm. Marriage Can Work Dear Dr. Brothers: A month ago, our 22-year-old son came home from college and announced that he wa marry a black girl he had met at college last year. Apparently, he's been living with her off and on for months and he s very much In love with her. .. , , , My husband and I are upset, not because we re anti-black but because we love our son and we're afraid such a marriage is bound to fail. He's our only child and we've invested all of ourselves In this one child so that naturally his interests and his life are of major importance to us. We would do or pay anything to break off this relationship so that our son could look forward to a wall-adjusted, happy, successful life. We just can't help but feel that this marriage will stand in the way of his goals and mean years, perhaps a life, of unhappiness and disappointment. S.T. Dear S.T.: You may be unconsciously projecting your own fears and prejudices upon your son when you, contemplate his marital future. If he and this woman are in love and share mutual respect and interests, they may look forward to a rewarding marriage. Love And Shared Interests These days there is little reason that this marriage, if it Is one of love and shared interests, should Stand in the way of your sons goals. - Studies of black-white marriages reveal that the reasons for such unions are much the same as those for marriages between persons of the same race. Race was not an important factor in mate selection in most of the couples studied. Its quite true that interracial couples may have to face more problems than the average couple. And frequently, one of these is parental disapproval. Overcoming problems together often makes the marital bond stronger. Most of the . problems your son and his wife will face will be the same as those in any marriage. Black militants and white racists may add extra burdens but since your son and his girlfriend have much the same educational background, the chances are that they will be able to overcome the additional anxieties and pressures from family and friends who object to interracial marriage. If you are close and want to remain close to your son, the best thing you could do at this moment is to give him your full support in his choice of a marital partner. His respect and love for you is bound to grow if he sees that you want to make his friend feel she is loved and appreciated for herself and because he has selected her. 1 When parents interfere they are likely to make a sons or daughters romance all the more intense. They are also likely to destroy part of the existing relationhip between parents and child. The young adult is bound to resent their interference and to view it as a lack of respect for his judgment and taste. . - Constant Learning Process While marriage between persons of the same background, - color, religion and culture may have some advantages, there are also Advantages between those of different backgrounds. In such relationships there is a constant challenge and an almost inevitable and constant learning process. Its also quite possible that your son and his friend may be much more alike in deep, relevant ways than he would be with many girls from his home town who may appear to be similar to him. Any young couple needs and welcomes parental support. Your relationship with your son and his wife will be much stronger if you give them all your confidence and support now. . . i .
