BREAKFAST-BUT NOT A CREATURE IS STIRRING — VmMTLAST BREAKFAST ARRIVES —BUT SO DOES EVERV- THIM6 ELSE // A Few Kind Words For Old Friend By BOB THOMAS AP Movle-Televlslon Writer HOLLYWOOD (AP) — Sir Tyrone Guthrie, Irish giant of the theater, was in town to say some kind words for an old friend celebrating a birthday. The old friend is William Shakespeare, born 400 years ago April 23. Guthrie came here as the first speaker in a program fot' the quadracentennial planned by the UCLA Extension Division, one of many such celebrations in all parts of the world. Before taking off for other lectures at Berkeley and the Citadel in South Carolina, the famed director of the classics was asked what he thought of this year's to-do for the Bard. "Oh, I think he'll survive," he replied. "It is a sign of greatness in such figures as Shakespeare and Verdi that they can survive any amount of mauling over the years. He conceded that the celebration might even do Shakes peare some good, so long as the plays are accepted for their entertainment value and not us literature.

"They should not be allowed to experience him too early," he observed. "High school is all right. But it is better for students not to be exposed at all than to be taught Shakespeare by a dull teacher.' Guthric was also dubious about movies as a medium for appreciating Shakespeare. "I thought Larry's (Olivier 'Henry V was well done, though more cinematic than Shakespeare," he observed. "But his Hamlet" was nonsense. It was ridiculous to say that this is a story of a man who could not make up his mind and then show a kind of Nazi guardsman elbowing everybody aside. "As for Orson Welles' 'Macbeth,' it was rather a horror, but as with much of Welles' work, a horror with a touch of genius." Aside from his lectures, Guthrie's contribution to the 15641964 celebration will be a staging of "Henry V" at the Tyrone Guthrie Playhouse in Minneapolis. Guthrie, who rose to fame with his vigorous direction in the Old Vic, the Sadler's Wells and the New York theater, founded the Minneapolis theater last year after despairing of the stultifying economics of Broadway. Noitherers Who Died CHICAGO (AP) - Civil War deaths on the Union side, 364,000, outnumbered the total deaths in World War I, 131,000, almost 3 to 1. They nearly equalled the total deaths of World War II, 409,000, the Vctrans Administration reports. Life iegtns af Forty Shaw's Genius Emerged After 4(8 By ROBERT PETERSON The genius of George Bernard Shaw was largely dormant until his middle years. He was an ill- paid, little - noticed music critic and the three or four minor plays he wrote prior to reaching 40 drew scant praise and even less remuneration. Then, at 42, he met and married Charlotte Payne-Townsend, a widow of some wealth. Thanks to her means and generous nature he no longer frittered his energies on unrewarding, brer.i winning tasks necessary to buy food and shelter. She soothed his irascible temper, flattered his sagging ego, and persuaded him to devote himself wholeheartedly to playwriting. Sure enough — within ten years Shaw was being hailed as an immortal, second only to Shakespeare in English literature. I recounted this saga recently to a writer who's frustrated because he's fortyish and still unpublished. But he wasn't much impressed. "Seems to me the moral of the story is to marry a rich widow," he muttered, "and my wife would never approve." * * * "Lots of people I know could use the services of retired carpenters," writes W. Earl Dyer, Jr., editor of The Lincoln (Ncbr.) Star. "I'd think retired men handy with tools would get to- gether, set up a business, put a listisg in the phone book, and offer their services in want ads. "I own my own home which periodically needs small things done. I'd be glad to pay a reasonable charge per job. It's work that needs doing but doesn't have to be done under pressure. Yet it's almost impossible to find anyone." He's right. We hear a lot about the absence of jobs for elders. Yet in most communities there are homeowners in every block who need carpenters, painters, and handymen occasionally for maintenance and repair jobs. How many folks In the U.S. have hit the century mark? The I960 cencws shows '0,369 centenarians, as compared with 4,487 in 1950. This 131 per cent increase confirms our gradual rise in life expectancy, and suggests that by the next census in 1970 we'll have two or maybe three times as many centenarians. There's every evidence that the upward trend in longevity will continue and it's gratifying to contemplate that everyone alive is a promising, lusty can didate for the century honor roll. • There was a provocative item in the Birmington (Ala.) News not long ago. Maybe it was a tyoof.raphical slip, or maybe the elderly lady involved has chosen to end her days with a flourish. The woman had reached 100 and an interviewer asked the standard njostion as to what she attributed her long life. Her answer as shown in the Cuban Agents Not Giving Up: Bentoneoutt CARACAS, Venezuela (AP) — President Romulo Betancourt said Monday that Cuban agents, although stifled by tough Venezuelan action, have not given up their attempt to make this oil-rich South American nation a Soviet beachhead. "All efforts to establish a Soviet beachhead here have failed but they have not stopped," he said. "Many Cuban agents arc now jailed but others are still in the streets."
