l»i» The AfItrnia Republic Pfitenlx, Friday, Jtme 29, im LAS VEGAS - Songwriter SjStamy Cahn has w r i 11 e n some lyrics that were great and some that were, as they say, "just fair to maudlin." "He recently wrote one for Gov. Ronald Reagan: i I'Naney's beaming like a lighthouse! 'Cause she sees her Ronnie in the White House." f ,;• • (From the days of Irving Berlin down to Burt Bacharach and Hal David, the cus- tqfri has been to praise songwriters. Las Vegas is just getting over the 60th birthday tribute at Caesars Palace, hosted by Paul Anka and Mrs. Anka, to the bald, bespectacled little Sammy, a dropout from SeWard Park High School On the Lower East Side. i* ?'As one illiterate, I'm giv- irfg the award to another illiterate," said Paul Anka in handing a Seward Park H.S. diploma to Sammy. Neither man ever finished high school; if they had, the country might have had fewer so,ng hits. Sammy, author of four Os- c^r-winning lyrics ("Three Coins in the Fountain," "All tile Way," "High Hopes" and "pall Me Irresponsible"), is equally proud of "Love and Marriage," an Emmy Ajivard song, but says his mother preferred "Bei Mir BJst Du Schon." '-What a pack of fans turned out: J o h n n y Carson gave Sammy a scroll from Mayor Lindsay, and cracked, "This guy is on the way out, and so aije you!" Toastmaster Milton Eerie presented Cary Grant, Phil Silvers and Jack Carter, who said "Joel Grey and Paul Anka are going to get together and do a single." |3n the kidding around, Danny Thomas told Berle, "Go to hell!" and Milton replied real fast, "I don't do requests." ;Maurice Uchitel, the New York tycoon, took 120 friends of Sammy's to the Johnny Carson show at the Sahara. JSammy has w r i 11 e n for stich composers as Vernon Duke, Arthur Schwartz, Jule Styne, Jimmy Van Heusen, Axel Stordahl, George Weston and, currently, George Barrite, the head of Faberge, with whom he's written the music for 'A Touch of Class," 'the Joseph E. Levine picture. <ii" Which of your collaborators do you prefer?" Sammy was asked. "Well, George Barrie ' Pinocchio A musical play for children Onstage! al Sombrero Playhouse SAT.

The celebration was notable for the scarcity of remarks about Watergate. However, Milton Berle claimed that the White House has' done everything it can to control inflation. "I know," said Berle, "because I read it in my 80 cent newspaper." 1 THE MIDNIGHT EARL IN N.Y. - Diahann Carroll told friends she was surprised when she was served with divorce papers at Incline Village in Lake Tahoe. She wasn't discussing it publicly, but i n d i c a t e d to acquaintances that her husband Fredde Glusman is very impulsive, and she hopes she can straighten things out. ^. Barbra Streisand's discovered eating. Her TV director, Joe Layton, begged her to weight - watch it. : Mark Spitz called off his July. 2 press conference in New York . . , By MEL OUSSOW New York Times Service NEW YORK- An evening as Uncle Vanya might provide enough -challenge and work for any usual actor, but Nicol Williamson—star of "Nicol Williamson's Late Show," which bpened Tuesday night at the Eastside Playhouse, as well as a star of the Chekhov play at the Cii'ple ih-the-Square — is far from the usual actor. Obviously it t a k e s inexhaustible energy and a certain' amount of nerve to attempt this after hours enter* tainment (at 10:45 p.m. after "Uncle Vanya"). Dressed in denim street clothes, walking casually from a microphone to a book-laden staircase to a table, he moves easily from country-western to T. S. Eliot to "I Can't Give You Anything But Love,Baby", (including a quick chorus on the piano). Have Samuel Beckett and "Blue Suede Shoes" ever appeared on the same bill before? The ultimate criterion of such a virtuoso entertainment is the quality of the performance. Not surprisingly, the actor's readings are superlative.

Alfred Pruffoek into an extremely actable dramatic monologue and his Beckett (from "Mow It is") is MI- forgettable—a harrowing pic* ture of the desperation, fright and hysteria of a man dying. In direct contrast, with an antic clownish wit he savors light verse by John Betjeman, e. e. cummings and E. ft. White, among others. The surprise of the evening is Williamson as a pop singer. Backed by a terrific six-piece electrified combo, he sings ef- f ortlessly. Were one not aware of the actor's previous accomplishments in the theater, one would accept him completely as an American pop star. There are minor quibbles. Two long poems by Eliot lend an imbalance. There are several frivolous poems (such as one in a broad Italian dialect) that do not seem worth Williamson's time. But the level of entertainment Is extremely high. How many other actors could possibly attempt an evening composed of such diverse material and succeed as Williamson does?
