14 Gdlesburg Re9i$ter';MQil, <3o^^ III. Tuesday, April 17, 1973 Want on White House Guest List? Maybe It's Who ¥our WASHINGTON (UPD- Backstairs «t th« White Hous«: Vke Presidtnt and Mrs. Spiro T. Agnew do not get Invitations to all the state WasMagtOB Backstairs dinners at the White House but they will be there when their good friend Frank Sinatra sings at the dinner honoring Italian President and Mrs. Guilio Adreotti. Because of his Italian ancestry and his talent, Sinatra has a popular following in Italy. He also rates high with Mrs. Andreotti because of contribu' tions to Italian orphans. Sinatra's invitation to perform at the White House dates back to last January. He supported President Nixon in the last election campaign, although his previous political ties had been mostly Democratic. Nothing seems to irritate Henry A. Kissinger more than to hear it bandied about that his rivals are frying to trim his sails and that he is not getting along with other top White House aides. For example, a recent diplomatic columnist wrote that Helmut Sonnenfeldt, a member of the National Security Council, sought his new post as undersecretary of Treasury to get out from under Kissinger's wing. But, .scoffs Kissinger, "who do you think put him there?" Rarely has the White House been graced with a more radiant personality than Metropolitan Opera star Mary Costa, She was thrilled to sing at the White House and did not mind saying so. She said she had been told by sophisticated friends "now don't go around saying how exdted you are," but shd couldn't r^stet doing it anyway. Miss Cbsta, a beautiful blond soprano, was originally, sched' uled for the state dkiner honoring British Prime Minister Edward Heath but sprained her back and was unable to make it. The invitation was renewed and she sang at a dinner for Singapore's prime minister, Lee Kuan Yew. President Nixon fouiHl much sympathy from Lee in the White House attitude toward the news media. In his champagne toast to Nixon, the Singapore leader said: "in the last few days in this country, 1 have discovered that any statement, any argument, however dispassionate, however blandly couched, which can be faintly, directly, or indirectly cbhstrued as in support of or in symi>athy M^ith any of the hopies, policies or aspirations of this adrtiinistr«tton findt very scant space in the Mais media." Lee said he admired. Nixon's "cultivated detachment Of mind which enables you to pursue what is right in the long run; never what Is in the short run, whether it wins rapturous applause or otherwise." ••iiiiiiii WW Building Progressed Construction is expected to he completed by September on Brophy Hall, Western Illinois University's $4.2 million women's physical education replacement facility. Phase 1, the activities area, is complete except for installation of a synthetic floor covering. The build­ ing replaces the women's physical education building that was destroyed by a Thanksgiving eve fire in 1970. General contractors are Thomas Construction Co., St. Joseph, Mo., for the activities area, and J. L. Simmons, Decatur, for the remaining portion.

WITH THE AID of her "thinlc" machines, a horoscope edited by Madame Soleil constitutes a precise "celestial chart." Madame Soleil was brought up by a father and mother who were barely 18 years older than she. Papa Soleil died before he was 40, from a wound suffered during World War I. At 16, Germaine had to go to worlt. She got a job as secretary in a political weelc- ly, married, bore three children. (She now has eight grandchildren.) Then, out of the blue, a fortune-telling aunt suggested she try her hand at astrology. This was a field already Itnown to her, as one grandfather dabbled in astronomy. As a child he had trained her to read the stars. CAME THE DAY when she substituted for her aunt as an adviser and she has never turned baclc. A program manager for French radio consulted her and. soon after suggested she do an hour's astrology on the radio, answering questions which would be telephoned in. She decided to try it out. "Arriving at the office I could see that people were somewhat talc en off their guard. Here was I, stout, middle-aged, no malce-up, looking like anybody's grandmother." This was in the fall of 1970. That first afternoon over 20,000 calls were registered and came in regularly; after that more thousands. "I AM VERY gregarious, love people, and want nothing more than to comfort, encourage and counsel those who have troubles. And it sometimes happens that I chide some of my consultants when I feel they are unreasonable." Her plans for the future include children. As a grandmother she feels that astrologists up to now have sadly neglected the problems of the under 15s and their parents.
