Nevada Gov. Paul Laxult stepped personally into the picture early last week. Laxalt had long been on friendly terms with Hughes although he, too, acknowledged that he had never met the man in person. Laxalt announced that Hughes had telephoned him from the Bahamas and that Clark County District Attorney George Franklin had talked with Hughes at the same time. Laxalt said Hughes conficraed that he approved of Maheu's dismissal. Asked bow he could be certain that it was Hughes speaking, Laxalt said he recognized his voice and that they spoke of matters only the - two of them could have known about. Not Satisfied . That did not satisfy Maheu. He said in an affadavit that he could not believe that after his years of service to Hughes, the Texan would fire him with no word whatsoever. The New York lawyer, Chester Davis, argued the case before District Judge James C. on the lighter side By DICK WEST WASHINGTON (UPI) Mrs. Clingcloser of Rutting, Mont.,, writes: "Your interviews with William Shakespeare haye illuminated and clarified many of the great issues of our times. Could you now sound out The Bard for his impressions of Christmas shopping?" Couldst and wouldst: Q. Long time, no see, Mr. Shakespeare.. How have you been? ~ " A. "I have been in such a pickle since I saw you lasst. I am almost out at heels. So weary with disasters, tugg*d with fortune." Q. In other words, you have been Christmas shopping. Is it pretty rough this ysar? A. "I could a tale unfold whose' lightest word would harrow up thy sou, freeze thy young blood, make thy two eyes, like stars, start from their spheres, thy knoted knd combined locks to part, and each particular hair to stand on end, like quills upon the fretful porcupine." Q. That bad, eh? When you are in the stores do you have trouble getting a clerk to wait on you? A; "Clean starved for a look." Q. I have heard reports that, much of this year's merchandise is inferior. A, "A deal of skimble- skamble stuff. The vdry rats instinctively have quit it. I would that thou and I knew where a commodity of good names were to be bought." ' Q. I also have heard that a lot of merchandise is overpriced. A. "You pay a great deal too • dear." Q. Some shoppers complain that by the time they get to the store the sale items already are gone. Would you comment on that? A. "The ripest fruit falls first. What you cannot as you 'would achieve, you must perforce accomplish as you may." Q. Isn't that pretty hard on your pocketbook? A. "Forty thousand brothers could not, with all their quantity of love,' make up ray sum." Q. Police say shoplifters are very busy this season. Is that true? A. "No man's pie is freed from his ambitious finger." Q. How does a shoplifter operate? A. "Paddling palms and pinching fingers. One. two and the third in your bosom." Q. Do you have any advice to offer those of us who-haven't done our Christmas shopping yet? A. ''Put money in the purse." Q. Thank you, Mr. Shakespeare. Babcock. . Davis said he found it incredible that Muheu was taking the position that he could not be dismissed. "He wants to continue to operate properties that don't belong to him," Davis said. "I can't believe^that anyone can argue that-a^corporation cannot terminate the employment of one of its employes." That seemed reasonable on the face of it but it left many questions unanswered: Why didn't Hughes fire Muheu personally? Why doesn't Hughes appear in public to dispel the rumors of his disability or incapacity to conduct the affairs of his empire? Why the insistence on the fantastic isolation which which is such, to make many people wonder if Howard Hughes is a robot manipulated by men after his fabulous fortune—or even if he is alive? The answers to those ques-' tions go to the root of what makes Howard Hughes tick. Opposite Chapters His life has been divided into .. two almost diametrically opposite chapters separated by the year 1946 when he almost was killed while flying the experimental XFH fighter, for the Air Force. His plane crashed in the residential area of Bel Air in Los Angeles and he emerged badly scarred, with a fractured skull, internal injuries and a crushed chest. Before that time, Hughes had been a celebrity with a record as one of the world's great fliers. Hughes made stars of Jean Harlow (Hell's Angels) and Jane Russell (The Outlaw) anc himself squired such beauties as Ava Gardner, Lana Turner and Linda Durnell. The 1946 crackup made a new — or old— man of Hughes. Even before that time he had been losing his hearing and he was very touchy about it. His face was so badly disfigured by the crash that he shunned being seen in public. Hughes continued to amass a fortune at even greater pace but he withdrew into a personal cocoon and pet lieutenants wagt his financial jousts so that he became the greatest mystery figure of the 20th century in the United States. In the last few years, privacy became an obsession. TODAY'S ALMANAC By United Press International Today is Monday, Dec. 14, the 348th day of 1970. The moon is between its last quarter and new phase.
