I am trying to find someone in this area who makes ftgtlir vWts to the state penal farm at Vandalia. I do not irite, and I need transportation to make visits down there. Need Help Deaf Need, If someone is willing to give you a lift, I will pass on your name and phone number to them. Dear Penny, Wnat can yon do about stores that take your money and give ftw poor service and shoddy merchandise in return. I am talking about a downtown store that supposedly has a good reputation. I recently purchased an item there, and when I took it home I found a flaw in it. I had paid the full price for it, and I certainly didn 't feel like keeping something that wasn 't what it should be. I took the item back to the clerk I bought it from and told her what was wrong. She acted like I had caused it. In fact, she went so far as to say that she was sure the flaw wasn't there when I bought It. To make a long story short, I ended up taking the flaw* ed item back home with me because she was so nasty. I am so mad . . . why should you have to pay first-rate prices for second-rate goods? Mad Dear Mad. I am sure the manager of that store would not want you to keep merchandise that you found unsatisfactory. Call him on the phone and tell him what happened, and I'll bet he asks you to return the merchandise for a refund. You are right, of course, you should not have to pay for merchandise that is not what it is supposed to be. Send your questions to Penny, in care of the Galesbnrg Register-MaiJ. Penny will answer all letters to which a personal reply is desired. As many tatters as space permits will be used in this column.

(Ted) Scripps II, vice president of Scripps-Howard Newspapers and Jeraki Clemans, currently associated with Scripps in Scripps-Clemans, Inc., a communications development firm. Their first project will be a film based on Robert Laxalt's novel, "Sweet Promised Land." Scripps emphasized that the new company will be completely separate from Scripps- Howasd. And Capra, while saying that his famous direc- Icr-father is not associated with them, did hold out some hope. "I think," Frank Jr. said, "that I can talk him into do-, ing something for us." THE ESTABLISHED com-* 1 pany with bold plans is Tom LaugWin's outfit. Tom and his wife, Delores Taylor, made "Billy Jack." and on the strength of their huge profits from that one, they're branching out. They've formed five divisions — the major filmmaking one, another (under Miss Taylor's name) to make family films, and companies lo make records, make TV productions and distribute their products. Laughlin says they first will finish the interrupted sequel to their hit, called "The Trial of Billy Jack." Next will probably be one called "The Dead­ liest Spy." They had bought "The Selling of the President," but Laughlin says he considers that outdated. "I'd like to do a film on the Watergate business," Tom says. "We as a people are getting one kind of last chance — are we to have a government with a President who has a secret police force or something eke? I want to do a documentary about this, in a new style, using public statements. I hope to do it this summer." ALLAN CARR, who manages Ann-Margret, held a birthday - housewarming in HilBiaven Lodge, the house he bought which used to be owned by big stars like Ingrid Bergman and Kim Novak. The party was wild, with the wildness led by the host who appeared in a patchwork caftan and, during the evening, changed six times — into six different-colored caftans. Ann-Margret and Roger Smith were there and they said they had almost bought Hillhaven Lodge. "But." Ann-Margret said, "it didn't have enough land for us — we have our pets to consider, you know."

Birthdate of: Nathaniel Hawthorne, Amer. author; Calvin SANTA MONICA. Calif. (UPI) - Betty Grable. the blonde whose kgs made her the favorite pinup girl of GIs in World War II. died Monday. She was 56. St. John 's Hospital said she died Monday evening of lung j cancer. She had been hospitalized since April. Miss Grable. the queen of lavish technicolor movies and the highest paid woman in the United States in the late lMQs was for years voted among the top 10 stars in box office [appeal. Cheesecake photos of the curvaceous golden-haired film star decorated thousands of foxholes and barracks during World War n and GIs voted her their aDtime favorite pinup. Despite her success, the actress was always modest and frank about her talents. She was the first to admit that she was far from the world 's best singer or dancer, and she didn't think the famous Grable; gams" were all that great' either. She often said she thought Marlene Dietrich's legs were better. In her heyday she earned an estimated' $300,000 a year in such movies as "Tin Pan Alley," "Coney Island," "The Dolly Sisters" and "How to Marry a Millionaire." In the 1940s, this was good enough to make her the nation's highest paid woman, according to the U.S. Treasury Department. Miss Grable was born Dec. Betty Grable 18, 1916, In St. Louis. Mo., the daughter of Conn Grable, a wealthy stockbroker, and his wife, Lillian, who had given up her own show business aspirations to get married and later became a prime mover of her daughter's career. ."Mother was always my driving force," Miss Grable once said. She married her co-star in "College Swing," Jackie Coogan, "The Kid" of silent film fame, on Nov. 21, 1937. She divorced him Oct. 11, 1939, Just One New Variety Show Will Open on TV in Fall By RICK DUBROW HOLLYWOOD (UPI) There will be only one new weekly, prime time variety series on the commercial television networks when the upcoming season begins. Television in Review And even that show, "NBC Follies," will have no regular star-host, another indication that network video is still having trouble getting and holding top headliners who can carry a series from week to week. The number of regular variety series has shrunk considerably in recent times. Tne old-time big-name stars like Jack Benny and Bob Hope are getting older. The sought-after audience is younger than before. And the government Memorial For Thorpe OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla. (UPI) — A foundation to honor the late Jim Thorpe, an Olympic hero and professional football star, will be set up by his seven children. cutback on network prime time seems to have brought about more emphasis on shows believed to have >a more certain bread - and - butter appeal to viewers—action programs and straight comedies. It's Ironic In short, the networks have drifted toward shows they apparently ithink will give maximum ratings protection to their reduced amount of prime time. And how ironic it is to think that the weekly variety show—once a programming staple that helped build audiences for the young video medium—now is represented in a relatively minor way in the prime viewing hours. ... all-time favorite complaining he had a quarrelsome disposition and was not considerate of her welfare. After her divorce from Coogan and a romance with George Raft Miss Grable married band leader Harry James on July 5, 1943, in Las Vegas, Nev. The couple had two daughters, Victoria, 29, and Jessica, 27. Miss Grable divorced James in 1965 after 22 years of marriage, charging him with extreme cruelty.
