HARMON District Maunder Harrison Specializes In Two Acting Roles By BOB THOMAS HOLLYWOOD (AP) - Rox Harrison has devoted almost five years of his acting career to playing two roles: Henry HiRRlns and Julius Caesar. "It's extraordinary," even he must admit. Academy voters will be balloting on half of Harrison's achievement next spring, and it's very possible thai his performance in "Cleopatra" will be named 1963's best. Right now bn is finishing up his 1,007th performance in "My Fair Lady," this one for the screen. He paused for some re- fleclions on his two long-running roles. "It's difficult lo imagine that it is finally coming to an end," ho said. "As you near the finish, you start yearning for it to bo over. But hard work remains to be done. "I still have to do 'I've Grown Accustomed lo Her Face,' and it's a most difficult number. It DANCE FRI., DEC. 6th V. F. W. — MT. VERNON, ILL 8 P.M. Til 12 P.M. MUSIC BY THE 3-M'» Admission — 1963 or 1964 Card. helps to explain Higgins and is very imporlanl lo the plot. On the stage it was easier, because I had built up the mood for myself through doing the rest of the play. In the film I've got to manufacture the feeling out of nowhere." Harrison played "My Fair Lady" two years in New York and another in London and signed for the movie just a year ago. That he could retain his zest for the role is a tribute to his skill as an actor. Caesar, to whom Harrison devoted n full year of filming, was something else again. "I had been hoping to htivc some time to case into the role," he said. "But no. For my first scene I was put into a purple toga with those damned gold leaves on my head and plunked into the middle of the bloody Fnrara with thousands of extras and a lot of senators I had to play lines to. "I was disastrous, but fortunately very little of it ended up in the picture." The action moved to more intimate scenes with Elizabeth Taylor and he was able to endow Caesar with some dimension. Co-slnr Audrey Hepburn completes her role in "My Fair Lady" this week, and Harrison will be finished as soon as he films the final number. What next "I honestly don't know," he said. "It's hard to know what to do after a pair of roles like these." Wounding Of Lincoln, Kennedy By FRANK CAREY Assoclntcd Press Science Writer WASHINGTON (AP) - "His wound is mortal; it is impossible for him to recover." These were the words of the first doctor to reach Abraham Lincoln's side after an assassin's bullet crashed into the back of his head almost a century ago. Ironically, they were almost echoed by Dr. Malcolm Perry of Parkland Hospital in Dallas where President Kennedy was rushed after he was shot by an assassin Nov. 22. "We never had any hope of saving his life," Dr. Perry told newsmen within a few hours after Kennedy's death was announced. Another medical parallel between the two tragedies is to be found in a report written in 1951 by Col. Hugh R, Gilmorc Jr., a former curator of the medical museum of the Armed Forces Institute of Pathology. Summarizing various records of Lincoln's case, Col. Gilmorc had this to say about the medical care given Lincoln immediately after the shooting, while tile mortally wounded President still was in the box at Ford Theater: "Three Army doctors in (lie audience rushed to the box...the wound was located and artificial respiration applied, for the patient was pulseless and his breathing was hardly evident." Dr. Perry, who attended President Kennedy, said that shortly after he reached the president's side in the emergency room, the chief executive's heart action failed and "there was no palpable pulse beat." "Nevertheless, he and n team of other doctors administered all the various emergency procedures in the futile attempt to save the President's life. President Lincoln, according lo Gilmore's account, "responded somewhat" to the first aid given him in the theater box, "and nbout fifteen minutes after the shooting he was carried to a house across the street..he was given a little brandy which he swallowed, but later attempts to give brandy were unsuccessful..." Could the best modem brain surgery have saved Lincoln's life? A couple of years ago, Col. George J. Hayes, chief neurosurgeon of Walter Red Army Hospital, and a close student ol the Lincoln medical history, said in a lecture that even with such surgery, Lincoln would have had no better than a 50-50 chance of surviving. "With the type of injuries he had...I don't, think wo (modern brain surgeons) really would have done much hotter..." he added. There was another sad parallel between the lives and deaths of the two Presidnts. The chair Lincoln was sitting in when ho was shot was one w h i c h had been especially placed in the theater box for him. It was a rocking chair.
