THE REGISTER-NEWS — MT. VERNON. ILLINOIS MONDAY, DECEMBER 9, 1963 Buddy Hackett's Hungarian Experience By BOB THOMAS AP Movlc-Telovlslon Writer HOLLYWOOD (AP) — From the halls ol Budapest to the shores of Malibu — that's the latest screen odyssey of the once - rotund comid Buddy Itackrtt. Three weeks ago Hacked, lately a compact 180 pounds after a high of 244. was filming a unique coproduction of Cinera­ ma and Hungary's nationalized movie studio. This week he was working at the ocean in the completely capitalized "Muscle Beach Party," n follow-up to the successful "Beach Party." Buddy finds himself in the uncomfortable position for a comedian of having to be funny when he doesn't feel like being funny. That's what the experience in Hungary did to him.

"Not only did I not get any routine in Hungary," he shrugged, "I can't do my old ones! It will take me some time to get back in form." Buddy seemed numbed by his 14 weeks in Hungary. "I don't know what to say about it; I would need three hours to explain myself," he said. "Not only that; I've got to be careful what I say. If I say I loved the Hungarian people— which I did — I'll be called a Communist sympathizer. If I say I hated being in Hungary— which I did — I'll be called a troublemaker." He went to Hungary to make "Millie Goes to Budapest," in which he and George Sanders play a pair of thieves out to steal national treasures. The reception by Hungarian officials was nil, said Buddy, but the people themselves — that was another matter. "I became almost a national hero," the comedian said. "That's because I was the only visitor who tried to loam their language. Everywhere I went I talked to people and tried to make them laugh. I would tell them in their own language 'The Hungarian lx>ople are all heart'—and they are. "But I couldn't get over the miserable way they had to live. It was terribly depressing, yet I supose it could be worse. My wife went to Rumania, and she said it was like a prison camp." The food in Hungary? "After I changel hotels, I never had a bad meal. They have all kinds of goulash and wonderful fish and a fish soup that I loved. It was so hot it made my mother's horseradish taste like sour cream." The first six weeks of filming were wasted, he said, because of foul-ups with a British company which was also coproduc- ing. The British pulled out, and then production moved more smoothly under the direction of Richard Thorpe, a speed-minded MGM veteran. The studio was built by Alexander Korda in 1928, and Buddy said it was on a par with studios in Hollywood, where many are of the same vintage. But there was no incentive among the set workers. "They al earn the same salary," Buddy explained. "There is a saying that everybody has a job in Hungary but nobody works. It's true." -AMPUS ESCORT—Lynda Bird Johnson tugs at her sweater as she hurries behind one of ter Secret Service guards toward a class at the University of Texas in Austin.

MUKIKf, KAWRKNCE ; Newspaper Enterprise Assn. ! Dear Mrs. Lawrence: Our I two grandchildren, 5 and 9. are i receiving no religious training. Though we gave our son a godly home, he and his wife do not attend church. They sleep late on Sunday and give this bad example to t lie children. Our minister says we should not interfere in the Lord's work of returning our son to His ways but do you think it would be interfering to offer to take the children to Sunday School ourselves . . . ANSWER: Ves. I think that yon may have already taken too much responsibility for the Lord. When we do this, children are only too apt to confuse us with Him. Whatever rebellious or critical feelings they have for us then get transferred to God, the church we attend and the religious rituals to which we subscribe. By undertaking to speak for the will of God, we! have made His will our will. For most impossible to provide children with an enviable example of religious benefit. Noting how dismal we are made by DEAR HAL: MAYBE WE'RE NOT AVERAGE Average Family Spends On Christmas $147 By HAL BOYLE NEW YORK (AP)-Things a columnist might never know It he didn 't open his mail: Playing Santa Claus, the average U.S. family will gpend $147 or more on Christmas presents. Also we will buy some $125 million in postage stamps. The custom of exchanging gifts at the beginning of the New Year, started by the ancient Romans, is still popular in Europe and China. Giving gifU at Yuletime is largely an American tradition. Speaking of holidays, I can't wait until 1985. In that year we'll have six three-day holiday weekends. You may not be able to hold on to a buck any better, but dollar bills are actually lasting longer. Among other reasons, the wider use of credit cards and checking accounts has cut down on the use of paper currency.

We can become the foe of a child wo say wo love If wo confuse ourselves with God In his mind. What is just as sad, we become enemies of ourselves, condemning ourselves because our spiritual light has proved insufficient to enlighten him as we think he should be enlightened. Like you, we lose all gladness in our own light to a gloomy, darkened sense of failure with the child who refuses to justify our religious training of him. In this gloomy, secretly resentful state of mind, it is al- FOR YOU . . *. AND PARKING TOO...
