Bodcaw. 12-5-lmc In a court hearing, Harold demanded compensation. He argued that when the lot took responsibility for his car, it also took responsibility for "normal" contents—such as golf clubs. But the court turned Harold down. Even though many motorists ore golfers, said the court, a parking lot need not assume there is a set of clubs in every trunk. Generally speaking, a perking lot is not responsible for a car's undisclosed contents. In fact, there may be some doubt of liability even if the contents are disclosed. In another case a man who left his car overnight in a parking garage reported the theft of $25,000 in jewelry. Claiming damages from the garage, he pointed out in court that he had called the attendant's attention to the jewelry. But the court denied his claim, saying it was unreasonable for him to think the night attendant at a garage would have the authority to take on such a major responsibility. "The (company) is in the business of storing cars," said the court, "not jewelry." In most cases, however, an attendant's promise to "keep an eye on" a car's contents is held legally binding on the company. One woman, leaving her car in a parking structure, asked the manager if the dresses she had in the back seat would be safe. "Definitely," he replied. But the dresses did vanish and the woman did sue. At the trial the company protested that the manager had "exceeded his authority" under company rules. But the court said it must pay anyhow. The court said the woman, knowing nothing of the company's internal arrangements, had every reason to rely on what the manager told her.

(AP) — Russian immigrants in the United States, Europe, Australia and Japan have answered exiled Russian author Alexander Solzhenitsyn's plea for recollections of their native Russia, Solzhenitsyn's interpreter says. Solzhenitsyn, a Nobel Prize- winning writer now living in Cavendish, recently asked his countrymen to write their recollections for use in his Russian Memorial Library. Solzhenitsyn's family spokesman, Irene Alberti, said Monday that no material has arrived from the Soviet Union although Solzhenitsyn's request went there by radio. "They wouldn't be able to send it by mail. We hope to eventually get some from there," she said in a telephone interview from Cavendish. The library now is in Cavendish, but Mrs. Alberti said Solzhenitsyn hopes to some day move it to the Soviet Union. ,G APPAREL' Among the spiders, the master weavers are the ararieids, whose unique orb webs have distinctive cartwheel designs that often measure over a foot in diameter and are unsurpassed in delicacy.

C-AT-LARGE Critic chooses the best books of 1977 By Norman Nadel NEW YORK--iNKA> What are the best books published in 1977 1 No single reader can answer that With about 30.000 new titles appearing annually, even one percent of that number would mean setting a pace of almost one a day. But the solitary reader can tell what he has especially enjoyed, in any of the myriad ways in which books for example. "Delmoro Schwartz, The Life of an American Poet," by James Atlas (Parrar "Straus Giroux, $15) is a revelation, especially to those of us his contemporaries — who weren't paying attention to him when we should have been. Before young (28) Atlas, a Rhodes scholar who treats his subject with compassionate honesty, the author who has drawn most attention to Delmore (he was almost never referred to as Schwartz) was Saul Bellow, in his Pulitzer Prize novel of last year, "Humboldt's Gift." Hurn- boldt is Delmore Schwartz. Peter Ustinov can be so funny, foppish, confused or seemingly irresponsible in his many stage and screen roles that it is easy to forget he also is a witty playwright, a skilled director, and, as he clearly establishes in his autobiography "Dear Me" (Atlantic — Little, Brown $9.95), a highly articulate, insightful and learned author. The impulse on finishing "Dear Me" is to start reading it over again. Candor almost to the point of pain distinguishes "Haywire" (Knopf, $10), by Brooke Hayward, daughter of the late actress Margaret Sullavan and producer Leland Hayward, also deceased. It was a strange and troubled family. Vivien Leigh, one of the most exquisite actresses of recent decades, lived beset by the TV Pi By JAY SHARBUTT AP Television Writer HOLLYWOOD (AP) - New Year's Eve is when many people drink. It also is when NBC, for reasons known to only its deities, airs a TV version of "Come Back Little Sheba." It co-stars Carrie Fisher, 21. The daughter of Eddie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds, she is accustomed by now to living with the fact she played the imperiled heroine of the hit. movie "Star Wars" and will play same again in a sequel. When she arrived at a restaurant here for a "Sheba" interview, she'd just finished posing for "Star Wars" pictures touting "Star Wars" knicknacks. She seemed a mite weary, but not jaded. Miss Fisher, who has a deadpan, sardonic sense of humor akin to that of Eve "Our Miss Brooks" Arden, was asked how many "Star Wars" interviews she's done. She started adding them up. "Oh, my God ... 300?" she said. She grinned when asked the most-asked "Star Wars" question put to her. She said it was, '"Did you know it was going to be a hit?"' Now that the "Star Wars" hype has eased, is there anything you'd like to add, Miss Fisher? She did. It was a discreet screech that briefly startled a cluster of patrons at the next table. Oddly enough, Carrie, a brown-haired, brown-eyed lady so tiny you could carve a life- size statue of her from a pebble, didn't get the NBC "Sheba" role because of her "Star Wars" fame. She said she got it because of her work in her only other film, "Shampoo," done when she was 17, just before she began a formal study of acting at England's School for Speech and Drama. She taped "Sheba" - which stars Lord Laurence Olivier and Joanne Woodward, both of whom she praised highly, in England last January, well before all the hoopla over "Star Wars" began. Hollywood moguls tend to type-castthespians who've been in a box-office hit. But no such thing has happened to Miss Fisher, who began in show biz at 13, working in her mother's night club act.

LOS ANGELES (A'P) - Two men have been arrested in connection with what police believe may be a "copycat" slaying patterned after those of the Hillside Strangler. .Stephen D'Orscy Devezin, 40, was booked for investigation of murder Monday night in the death of 21-year-old Carolyn Williams, IA. Don Foster said. Thomas Davis, 24, who police described as a friend of Deve- y.in, had been booed on the same charge earlier. Miss Williams' semi-naked body was discovered Saturday morning in a parking lot in Ix>s Angeles's Wilslu're district. The body of 18-year-old Paula Gwen Ward had been found hours earlier a few miles away in Pasadena near the Rose Bowl. Police Lt. Dan Cooke said the two slain women had been seen together Friday and that whoever killed one probably killed the other. However, because Miss Ward's body was found in another jurisdiction, Cooke said, I/is Angeles police could not book anyone for her death. "Based on the evidence of the way the murders were committed, it's altogether possible that whoever did it tried to make a similar type of killing to the Hillside Strangler murders," Cooke raid. "Copycat killings are not too unusual when there is this type of publicity in the case." But Pasadena police were not convinced Monday night that the death of Miss Ward was a copy of the work of the Hillside Strangler. "We haven't been able to prove it one way or the other," Pasadena Sgt. Ben Hetherington said. "We're keeping an open mind on it." Los Angeles police said they arrested Davis and Devezin after an employee of the Cloud Motel in the Wilshire area took down the cur license number of a man he reportedly saw carrying a woman out of a room wrapped in a blanket. Officers said they traced the car, stoked it out and arrested Davis Sunday night when he got into it. Deve'/.m was arrested Monday morning in an apartment. Police said Debra Husband, who identified herself as a friend of Miss Ward, told them Miss Ward had planned to meet a man at the Cloud Motel Friday night and asked that police be called if she was not heard from within an how. Authorities said Mi.-w Ward, who had been staying in a halfway house, had been in trouble for such things as shoplifting and marijuana possession. They said Miss Williams was arrestedon prostitution charges three times during 1975. Both Davis and Devevdn are black, as were Mis:i Williams and Miss Ward, police noted. Previous fragmentary descriptions in the Hillside Stranglcr case have pointed to the killer or killers being white. »<•<•««• iu "November V.c Vikan.si\s S'rtle Police in in.'uilfiy statistical review r-i'il th.u .*-.' pen* ins died in ft'ie accidents during emNer According to State iVIu'o futures, thus is an in- civ.ise of .1 deaths over the s-une time penod a year BRO.

"My »i;ciii;i and I hail fi clear understanding that they did Iheir Intelligence work for me, but that the news reports they wrote were a matter between themselves and their editors, and were not given prior clearance or direction by me," Colby told the House Intelligence Committee. He acknowledged that this understanding "may not have been followed in some isolated instances," but contended that a serious study would "put to rest any myth that CIA dominated our media output." Colby, who is now a lawyer in private practice in Washington, said "Intelligence officers cannot be effective In hostile areas of the world If they wear the Initials CIA on their hat- bands." The problem of providing cover, he said, is one of the agency's "greatest areas of frustration and difficulty." During the last 10 years, he said, more and more possible sources of cover for agents have been ruled out of bounds, including the Peace Corps, Fulbright scholars hips, the U.S. Information Agency, the U.S. Agency for International Development and now the news media. In many countries, he continued, "the remaining areas of cover are few and ... many CIA officers are all to easy to Identify." "The melting lee floe of adequate cover has already led l.o the tragic death of <.r;o : .i,r officers and the f «f the work </ : comper.. :•. ,. • ;i;.'

HM5S.7fi-Si.il T - Uy JOHN CUN.NH'V AP Business Aunlyst "NEW YORK (AP) -"Americans really went on a spending binge in the final weeks of the year, and there are Indications that a good percentage at the purchases didn't end up under the Christmas tree. They were consumed Instead, literally swallowed, In the form of food and drink. Or so It would seem. Final figures won't be available for a couple of more weeks, but we do know this: Food store sales In November rose 2.0 percent over those of October, suggesting an amazing Increase In Intake. True, some of these purchases might have made gifts, but another set of statistics suggests otherwise. November sales at eating and drinking places leaped 2.1 percent after having been weak In October. Economists are now studying such statistics to find out what they can about the behavior of the sometimes unpredictable consumer. They have already drawn some conclusions: —•'Hie public was in more of a buying mood than was generally foreseen. The buying began unusually early; October retail sales leaped 2.7 percent over September, and November added another 1.5 over October. —Early reports of a 1.5 percent increase in the dollar value of auotmoUve purchase:} for November are suspect.

That, at least, was the trend that seemed to be setting In early in the final quarter of the year. Contrary to what some people might expect, consumers assume credit burdens when they feel confident — not when the the absence of ready cash leaves them no other choice. Personal incomes were up; people were confident; they took on credit. This burst of consumer activity now presents analysts with the question of how much longer It might continue. Some credit critics say the burden of repayments could hamper sales In 1978. Another school of thought, however, observes that consumers are still able to repay their borrowings on time. They feel that 1978 sales might indeed be affected by activity this year, but merely because consumers have already purchased many of the items they need. Whatever, the Indomitable consumer has again surprised some of those who claim the title of expert, and has almost made certain a continuation of the expansion Into a fourth year. He might have done it with food and drink and a lot of gifts that the recipient is inclined to return, but that's the way the liwna
