Shy Marge Found True Home on the Stage By MEL HEIMER THE TRUTH, alas, is that Marge Redmond didn't get into show biz because Darryl Zanuck saw her in Schwab's drugstore and said immediately "Sign that girl. I'm.going to make a star of her." What actually caused it. you see, was that she was a rotten typist. ··I was taking typing back in high school in Lakewood, Ohio." says the pert, comic Sister Jacqueline of ABC-TV's big series hit, "The Flying Nun." "And I needed the five credits to be graduated--except I could not. pass the time tests. I really wasn't a bad typist, only when J had to race the clock. I got all nervous and my fingers got wet and slipped all over the keys .ind I made mistakes." That was when a girl friend suggested she join the "Barnstormers.'' the high school drama group, for which she could get the credits she needed. "I got nervous the first time I was supposed to be in a school play, too." she said. "--and then somebody pushed me out onto the stage, and you know what? 1 was home. It was .wonderful. Being out there was better than being home in my own living room." From that night on, of course, the die was cast. After school. Marge worked in a bank for a while, first as a mail page and then--hold onto your hats--as a typist . . . but always she knew that her bag was to perform in public. "Which is funny. I guess." she said, "because I was a .self-conscious young girl. Maybe I'm like Sid Caesar, and not at home at all onstage when I'm being myself--but put me into a part and let me act. and it's sheer bliss." The ebullient Miss Redmond, incidentally, doesn't hold with acting schools or deep analysis of a role too much. "Too rj\auy times I've seen actors grasp immediately the way a part should be played," she says, ··--and then mess it up by parsing it microscopically or trying to find out WHY the character is as he is. So often, the first idea is best." Her professional career actually began with stock company musicals in and around Cleveland, and then radio shows (she was "Ask Miss Wells," a helpful-hints dispenser I. When she Mill Redmond played a nun in a movie-so what «|M but tht's cart in TV's "Flying Nun"? came to New York--cold--she got her first break as standby for Judy Holliday in "Bells Are i Ringing" . . . and it was in this show that she worked with, and later married, Jack Weston. Oddly, he, too, is a Clevelander. Today Weston is a stick- out character-actor movie star --he's in "The Thomas Crown Affair" with Steve McQueen-but in those days they both were scrambling. "After three months," Marge says, "we quit 'Bells' to go to California, Where suddenly all the TV seemed to be happening. Jack and I are a little nutty, anyway. If we have enough to eat and can pay the rent, the rest of the things money brings seem extraneous." After wrecking their car in Des Moines, Iowa, the gaily-gaily pair finally did get to the coast --and have worked happily (and often together) ever since. ' Jack's breaks came a bit earlier. j beginning with a "Gunsmoke" j episode, but Marge then did a "Hennessey" for Jackie Cooper . . . and they both were on their way. "I guess I got the part in 'The Flying Nun' because I'd just been a nun in the Rosalind Russell film "The Trouble With Angels,' " Marge says. "And also--when I went to talk with the people in charge, I found that over the years I had worked for all but one of the executives in the room. They knew what I could do -- and presto, I got the job. Weston is concentrating on films (he wants to direct) these years, while Marge is busy with TV. Of course, if the bottom falls out of show biz, she always can work as a typist. Sure she can. Well--would you believe, maybe ?

In the past, a widow, without a child In her care, could not receive benefits on her husband's earnings record before age 60. The 1967 amendments, how- ·ever, permit a disabled widow aged 50 or over who is unable to work because of a severe disability, to receive monthly benefits under certain circumstances. This provision was effective with March 1968. The widow's disability must have begun (a) before the husband's death or within seven years after his death, or, (b) within seven years after benefits as a widow, with children in her care, had ended. Mr. Sullivan stated that the term, disabled widow, also includes a divorced wife If the marriage had lasted 20 years or longer and he was either 'contributing to her support at the time of his death or was .under a court order to do so. A disabled widower 50 or older, who was receiving at least half his support from his wife at the time she died, may also be eligible under these provisions, Mr. Sullivan added. Individuals who believe they may meet the requirements should contact their Social Security office immediately. Hanoi Envoy ~ Continued From Page I candidate Sen. Eugene J.
