(UPI) — Lon Chaney Jr., who played such macabre movie roles as the Wolf Man and Frankenstein's monster, died at his home at the age of 67. His death Thursday was not revealed until Friday. Patsy Chaney, his wife of 36 years, would not specify the cause or disclose funeral plans. Friends said he.wished no publicity of his death. A dhild of Hollywood, Chaney appeared in nearly 400 films, following in the footsteps of his fafther, a star of the silent screen who was famous for elaborate make-up. Born Creighton Chaney in Oklahoma City, he changed his name when he entered the movies. The younger Chaney's career ranged from monster roles to the sympathetic character of the half-wit "Lenhie" in "Of Mice and Men." He suffered from a variety of illnesses in recent years, including gout and liver ailments. He recently underwent acupuncture treatments to relieve pain and was hospitalized (xrtesbuttlJtegister-Mail, Galesburg, II Saturday, July 14, 1973 S TV-Watergate Has Bugs of its Own Lon Chaney ... wolfman role for cataracts and beriberi last April.

Among his other films were "Frankenstein Meets the Wolf Man," "Son of Dracula," "Ghost of Frankenstein," "Here Come the Coeds," "The Dal tons Ride Again" and "House of Dnacu- la." By DICK KLEINER HOLLYWOOD (NEA) Bruce Davison, the actor who went to the rates in "Willard" is currently playing Patrick in "Mame," with Lucille Ball and Bea Arthur. It is, one gathers, a more pleasant experience. The Lively Arts There is the matter of Lucille Ball's eyes which, Davison says, have more power than Richard Boone's nose. "When I was a kid," he says, "Paladin was the only show I could stay up late to watch. I loved Boone. Then, last season, I did a Hec Ramsey with him. His nose is magnificent — it draws you like a magnet. "But Lucy's eyes have even more power. In the picture, I'm supposed to look into them. I said I'd do it only in the take, not in the rehearsals. I was scared of those eyes. They are more powerful than Boone's nose." AS FOR BEA Arthur, he is very impressed with the rapport she and her husband, Gene Saks, who is directing the film, have. "He'll say 'Er,' and she'll say, 'Yes, I know.'" Bruce says. For Davison, this part is another step up. He's starred in small films and now he's got a major part in a major film. But he still hasn't had what he feels is a part he likes. Yet, the surprise quickie hit, "Willard," has made him a success. "Success," he says, "has allowed me to trade in my Toyota for a Datsun 240Z. And I was married for three months. I'm still married but I'm not working at it. She's a great lady — she lives just down the hill and I go there and change pants."

As part of the Phase II requirement, city officials had to show need for suifi a facility. Fitch said the earliest construction could begin would be in Dtcember, after architectural plans and bidding specifications [have been completed and contracts awarded. Still to be settled, however, is purchase of a section of land for the building. Members of Bushnell VFW Post 1422 Thursday night agreed to a compromise for sale of the land to the city. The property is located in the VFW Park. The VFW is still seeking $26,000 for the 4.2-acre tract but would return $10,000 to the city for the project. This was the recommendation of a special crnnmittee of VFW members who met with city officials. The (committee was formed to negotiate the matter after Mayor Harold Fitch told the post the price was twice what the city could pay. The City Council will take the VFW's proposal under advisement. The proposed center would be financed by $224,600 in federal funds and by $92,000 in local money. The original federal grant was $184,000 but an additional $40,600 was awarded recently to the city because of (rising construction costs. Other business discussed by post members were the annual fish fry scheduled Sept. 2 and p'ans to have bingo games in the VFW Hall street level club rcom each night of the Bushnell Town and Country Festival.

SUSAN HEPNER CORRESPONDENT Home Address: 24 NE Third Ave. Phone 932-2725 FRED WERNER is doing the music coordinating on "Mame," and has this to say about how the leads — Lucille Ball and Bea Arthur — are singing. Lucy's singing is fine," says Werner, "for an actress. When I got this job I listened to her 'Wildcat' album and I was impressed. Since that time her voice has lost its high notes, for some reason, so I've had to arrange the songs down to fit her current abilities. "Still, on such a tough number as 'If He Walked Into My Life,' she's doing very well." He's found that she gets nervous before a singing session so he tricks her. He works out a deal with director Gene Saks and doesn't tell her when a recording session is scheduled. But Saks will say he doesn't need her for awhile and suggests that she work with Werner for awhile. "WE'LL GO INTO the studio," Werner says, "and she'll' be nice and loose. She hasn't had time to work herself into a frazzle." He says Bea Arthur is a fine singer — "she docs a great job with blues and I'm working out the details for her to record a blues album." So he thinks that, all in all, the "Mame" score will be well sung by his two leading ladies. It's nice to know.
