French Say English Are eener Than Americans By HAL BOYLE NEW YORK (AP)-As if our world weren't already topsy-turvy enough, now along comes a Frenchman who says the English can see the point of a joke quicker than Americans. "The English have a very good sense of humor," said Robert Dhery, star, author and director of the hit Broadway revue, "La Plume de ma Tante." "They love gags. It's funny, because they seem so straitlaced and serious. "They can see a gag coming. They laugh quicker, louder—and shorter—than here. They give a sharp laugh, then quit, and you have to have another gag ready. "The Americans laugh slower and longer." Dhery also has found a differ ence between French and American audiences. "I like it here because the audience comes to the theater ready to laugh and enjoy itself," he said. "In France they go to see whether you can make them laugh. There is a difference." Dhery, the slender mobile-faced son of a Chablis miller, has been in some 20 films. He is also one of the busiest revue directors in Paris. "Few revues in Paris last as long as six months," he said. "And people there book their tickets only a few days ahead at most. "Here a man and his wife may buy their tickets as much as four months ahead. Then on the night of the show their seats are empty. When I see 'this it makes me mad. I can only suppose they have died in the meanwhile." One American theatrical custom which both Dhery and Collette, his blonde wife and costar, find an utter abomination is the matinee. "Collette has 17 costume changes. On matinee days she has to change her clothes 34 times. If she did nothing but this, she would be tired," he said. Asked what impressed them most about America, Collette said, the smoky city streets; and Dhery said, Sunday newspapers. "They are so heavy. We have nothing like them in England or France," he said. The Dherys have found Manhattan a cultural wonderland. "I cannot understand your buffet parties," said Dhery. "They are so crowded there is no place to sit down. "I went to one buffet party where there 200 or 300 guests. I glanced into a bathroom, and there was a young lady enjoying her meal all by herself. It was the only place she could find to sit down." CHS, Atchison Tied In Tennis Match Here Ottawa High School and Atchl son's Redmen fought to a 2-2 deadlock in a tennis match at Forest Park, Tuesday. Ottawa Coach Don Kornhaus indicated he would take two boys to the regional meet at Shawnee Mission Saturday. Ottawa finish ed third in the NEKL standings. The results: Bob Keelin, 0 over Manning, A, 6-3, 6-0. Gary Burke, 0 over Dention, A, 6-2, 6-1. DOUBLES: Ball-Hutchinson, A over Shofn e'r-Bruce, 0, 6-2, 6-0.

Mims, Giardello In Title Clash WASHINGTON (AP) — Title hopes of Holly Mims and Joey Giardello clash tonight in a 10- round middleweight mixture at Capitol Arena. The even-money match of opposite styles—Mims the-change of pace boxer and Giardello the sock- er-7-will be on view on the regular Wednesday night TV fight channel—ABC, 8 p.m. CST. With Sugar Ray Robinson partly dethroned and middleweight opportunities expanding, none could be more concerned over the outcome than Mims and Giardello. The National Boxing Assn. has ruled Robinson undeserving of its version of the title for failing to defend in more than a year. Two ex-champs, Carmen Basilio and Gene Fullmer, will meet for the NBA crown this summer. Under the NBA program, the Basilio-Fullmer victor must promptly risk his title against a recognized challenger. Spider Webb of Chicago would appear to have the edge, but Giardello contends a triumph over Mims will get him a match with Basilio here this summer—provided Carmen beats Fullmer.

Stengel Gets Upset With TV Camera Crews KANSAS CITY (AP) - Casey Stengel isn't worried by his New York Yankees' slump but he seemed irritated Tuesday night before the game with the Kansas City Athletics. A television camera crew approached the Yankee bench with microphone and camera. "Get away from here," Stengel said. "You want me to come out and talk about this ball club and I ain't going to do it. This is a good ball club. I make my living here on this bench not In the movies." When the camera cfcw tried to put in .a dissent, Stengel jumped up and headed for the clubhouse, calling over his shoulder: "I'll see you in Europe." day as authorities were getting ready to drag the water for him.
