REPUBLIC MAIL Jtft the Arizona Republic Phoenix, Sat., April 5, 1969 Flower*pickin' Ruth Buzzi Austin 9 s clergy leaders plead tor Him decency By EARL WILSON NEW YORK - "Where are you from?" we asked Ruth Buzzi, the former B' way actress who plays "glum Gladys" Ormphby in "Laugh-In." "Wicketytwock, . Connecticut," she said, explaining it's spelled Wequetequock but pronounced to rhyme with tick- ety-tock. "I was a cheerleader there and it was sort of hard to say 'Rah, Rah, Rah, Wick- etytwock.' Wicketytwock is near Pequonoc and Boom Bridge Road." "THAT'S EXACTLY the information we need," we said. "Now about your familiarity with cemeteries?" Wicketytwock, Connecticut," she said. "Now about your familiarity with cemeteries?" "My father sold gravestones and I guess I know more about cemeteries than any girl living. My father often didn't want to go alone lo^cemeteries and I'd go along arid wander around. When I was very little I would take thi flowers off fresh graves and take them home to my mother. She'd say 'Isn't that ni^e?' " "Was this knowledge of cemeteries often useful to you?" a V 0nce when I was making a film in Hollywood, they had a cemetery scene. We rigged upj one in the country and shflt on Sundays. I had to fall in ;a grave and get buried. The third week, the police ar- rivpd. They thought we were grave robbers." » "You were a charwoman while going to Pasadena Playhouse?" '!l found out some friends pard women 815 an hour to clean apartments. I said I'd cle^fi for $10 an hour. I used to syalk down Sunset with my own; spaghetti mop over my shoulder going to my 'appointments.' I made $120 a week as a charwoman. And of all the people I worked for, I turned out to be the star — tooting my own horn!" "Was there anything amusing ever happened in those Connecticut cemeteries?" we asked. "Well, once I was going home and I didn't tell them I was coming. I told my girl friend Betty Sidebottom. "Betty. . .uh. . .uh?" "BETTY SIDEBOTTOM!" she glared, "She met me and I changed into a costume like I wore as a charwoman, with a low-hanging straw hat and heavy stockings. I rang my father's office bell. He yelled out he was busy and go on and look around at the gravestone samples. "My father finally came out, didn't recognize me, and for 10 minutes tried to sell me a tombstone. I finally said, 'Daddy, it's me!' He laughed so hard, he said, 'We have to fool your mother.' He called to her 'Rena, you got to come out here and finish this sale.' She looked out the window and saw this strange old hag and she said Til go.' She came out and got down and looked into my face under the straw hat and she said, 'It's Ruthie!' She literally rolled on the grass laughing." Ruthie, who's married to a writer, Bill Keko, is to be immortalized in a book he'll do explaining the character of her TV character. AUSTIN, Tex.
