p r » "> 78*™? A < r. Artebfla Phoenix, thors., April 3, 1969 ' ' D U Mary turns diabetes into chic career . Traveling to LA. by way of Tokyo By EARL WILSON . HOLLYWOOD-The B.W. and 1 Hew to the Jules Steins' fantastic three-day party the hard way— via Manila, where they put on an earthquake for us. Being a little in love with globe-trotting, we started from New York, did 20,000 miles in a week ("give or take a couple of miles," a navigator said i— almost equivalent to around- the- world. - -------------- ...... - .......... ---------- - — •v **' '•* "V t "i We landed in Tokyo twice, ; Honolulu twice, were in Hong _:Kong two days, the Philippines two days. And we dig that International Date Line. We didn't feel the Manila earthquake but we felt our cholera shots plenty at ,1:40 p.m. Thursday in the 100-degree heat as we approached a Philippine Air Lines sign that said: "Firearms and other deadly xveaons not allowed beyond -this point.' 1 We were making a 17-hour air dash to the Stems' "Sweet Charity" party at the new Sheraton-Universal Hotel on the Universal lot here. t -Thursday midnight came, it was Thursday at 12:01 ., thanks to the international date line. Coming into ;Tt>kyo, we missed a Pan-Am • connection to Honolulu. Planes wfere stacked up over the Tokyo airport. "We just blew the party," I grumbled. • But we grabbed another plane, slept through that second Thursday and, again thanks to the date line, got to "Los Angeles about 7:35 p.m. Thursday, though we'd left Manila at 3:40 p.m. Thursday. WE WERE ONLY about two drinks behind the hundreds of other guests (including Gov. Reagan, the Greg Pecks, the Fred Brissons). Jumping into our dinner clothes like firemen (good .. friends Anita Louise and Hen- try Berger had got them pressed and sent them ahead *t$ the new $13 million, 21«Story hotel), we were soon flaking hands with Jules and • t)oris Stein and all the Beauti- • ful People. •; Bob Hope and Andy Williams kidded Universal Pictures for having a hotel right on a movie lot. , "We've finally got a .hotel in -the valley where you can actually check in—with luggage —and stay all night," Bob said. "Claudine and I stayed all night," Andy said. "It was fine except about 3 a.m. there was a knock. It was a tour going through." THE CELEBRITIES included "Sweet Charity" star Shirley MacLaine, Ricardo Mon- •talban, the Art Linkletters, Bob Fosse. George Jessel, .Jimmy Stewart, the Duchess of Argyll, many socialites, and i one lady who was annoyed • that there wasn't a separate room for her dog. ' Gary Grant introduced me '"to" the young celebrity, his daughter, Jennifer, 3. Just then some Scotch bagpipers let loose a blast. Jennifer shrank f r o m me. "She's against the press!" I said. ''No," said Grant, earnestly. "She was scared of those bagpipers—and seeing a bunch of men wearing skirts." By WAYNE WARGA Los Angeles Times Service HOLLYWOOD - When her doctor told her she was a diabetic, Mary Tyler Moore — at that particular moment in a rather bumptious stage of her career — bellowed: "What do you mean? I'm not frail or sickly. I'm full of energy. I'm too healthy. It can't happen to me." Then she turned emotional. "I'm disciplined," she said. "1 always know my lines. I consider myself professional. But the thought of adding a special discipline to my personal life as a diabetic was just too much. Intellectually 1 knew what to do, emotionally I refused. "1 spent the next couple of months sneaking cookies, then sitting in the parking lot and eating them. I knew I was two weeks from a coma and I didn t care. KOREA WITH SATELLITES SEOUL (UPI) - Eight new telephone circuits operating via trans-Pacific communications satellites opened between South Korea and the United States yesterday. That was seven months ago. The career is now back in full gear (she's doing pictures back-to-back and a television special April 13 on CBS) and so is Mary Tyler Moore. Since she's stuck with diabetes, she's decided to turn it into a chic disease. "When they put me on insu- When In Tempe Stop at FRANK'S for Lunch •.Dinner • Cocktail* 1015 W. Broadway, Tempe lin I insisted Somebody else give me the shot. I refused to do it myself," she said. "Then I took six lessons. Now I find it much easier to shoot myself. I've never felt healthier in my life." To see her is to believe. The TV special, preempting Ed Sullivan on April 13, reunites her TV mate of five years, Dick Van Dyke.
