WHAT IN THE WORLD! By ALLEN GARVIN The Other Mrs. BurtoH Sybil Burton is far from being a recluse after her much-publicized divorce from Richard, In fact, she has turned into one of the slickest night-club operators in New York City. Her latest creation—all the rage these days—is Arthur, a new discotheque on the site of the old El Morocco. The club borrows its name from a line in the Beatles' film. "A Hard Day's Night," when someone asked George Harrison what he called his haircut and he replied, Sybil and song writer Adolph Greene at opening of Arthur "Arthur." Sybil's friend, comedian- turned-director Mike Nichols, thought the line very funny. So .when Sybil asked him what she should name her new night club, "Arthur" was his offbeat answer. The Chicago Wind Sex? Owning a major-league ball team once was uncomplicated: you bought some uniforms, bats, balls, and players; you got a field—and you were in business. But no longer. The Chicago White Sox recently became the second team (after the L.A. Dodgers) in the majors to buy their own airplane (a DC-7). And now, to keep the ex pensive craft in use as much as possible, the club finds itself in the aerial- charter business! The White Sox are trying to make money on the plane by renting It out over weekends, while the team is bedded down in one city for a series of games. Maybe they ought to change their name to the Chicago Wind Sox. Bogart in "The Maltese Falcon" Boqey—Goee b«t Not Forgotten Humphrey Bogart died of cancer in 1957, but fans have not forgotten him.

This Bogey binge will get another push late this summer when two major new books, Bogey: The Films of Humphrey Bogart and Bogey—The Good-Bad Guy, will appear almost simultaneously in the nation's bookstores. Kerr Cnts Loose Usually mild- mannered Deborah Kerr has cut loose at Hollywood script-writers for not writing more meaty roles for actresses. ".Writers still haven't gotten Frank Sinatra and Deborah Kerr in "Marriage on the Rocks" the war out of their systems," she gripes. "They're still writing about fighting and relationships of adventurous men. They're obsessed with war as well as crime and violence of all kinds. Few women's stories are being written; it's harder and harder to find them today." Deborah at last discovered one In "Marriage on the Rocks." But she took the role only after a long-distance phone call from Frank Sinatra. Normally she doesn't agree to do a film without a finished script in her hands—but she confesses: "There ore just one or two persons on whose word I would do it, and Frank is one of them."
