SOVIET SPACECRAFT RIDES TO LAUNCH SITE -A rocket carrier with the Soviet apace vehicle Soyuz 9 aboard, is transported to its blastoff spot somewhere in Russia. The space- craft was launched into orbit Monday night with two cosmonauts aboard. This picture is from Tass, the Soviet agency.(AP Wirephoto via cable from Moscow) · -Strange, Yet Brilliant Ways Characterize World's Top Mime NEW YORK (AP) - Marcel Marceau mimed in front of a mirror, the glass reflecting but the mere form of his mind's creation. He eyed his glass copy, turning tfiis way as it turned that, studying his new costume as an artist contemplates an empty canvas. "Tear a little here," he told an assistant, his long, slender fingers stabbing at the bottom of his trousers. "And here." At the elbow. "Rip it here, too/' and "put some more dirt on it** Another sharp-eyed gate at his reflected double. 'It needs a big tie, I think.** Marceau was preparing a tramp's costume for an all-pantomime film short called "First Ciass." It was the first day of shooting; the first scene. In it, he is only seen from afar and the details of the costume seemed insignificant Yet he worried over'every speck, every shred. "I know the first scene is from very far/* he protested. "It doesnt matter. "I must feel the character. It is important B is very strange, eh?" .Strange, perhaps, but it is the core of the brilliance of the 47- year-old Frenchman who is unquestionably accepted as the greatest mime in the world. He creates his characters from within, from his toes to his fin- gertaps and the omnipresent flower in his hat In this featurette, he portrays 23 different characters- tramp, sailor, ship owner, crotchety old lady, haughty elderly gentleman -- as he wanders aboard an STAND OUT IN VALUE TESTS I ocean liner in search of a fantasy love. There is only one other player in it, a young actress named Terr! Goldman of Moorehead, Mm., on her way to study at Marceau's mime school in Paris. He began the school about a year ago and says he now has about-60 students from 26 countries. He intends to form a new company of mime from among his highly select students. "Til teach Ml time the day Pm confined to a wheel chair. When you're able to perform, you must,'* he says. tn his typically energetic way, the scraggly haired Frenchman was shooting the film during the day while appearing nightly on stage in a special one-man show, in itself an exhausting of. fearing of new and old miming acts- including some with his famous creation, Bip, a Chapli- nesoue poetic tramp in striped sweater, tights, top hat and daisy. And he found time to pose for photographs for the "Marcel Marceau Alphabet Book," to be published in about a year. In ifj he plays all 26 letters of the alphabet, from A for Awakening to the sleepy ZZZZZZZ. "I have never done an alphabet before and I have never done a book for children. This book will be for the children of America and the adults as well. And why not, since adults are also children. I myself learned the alphabet at 5- and Pm not a day older now,*' he said. Audiences around the world"J have performed in 55 countries*'-- have marvelled at his mastery of mime, blending graceful movements and the balance of a ballet dancer with empathetic characterisations based on Everyman's dreams. When Marceau, his feet firmly planted on the stage, "totters** on an imaginary tightrope, his audience gasps lest he "fall.** "Mime is the eternal language,*' he has said. "The Greeks and Romans played as we play and we are in the space age.*'. Marceau began his career with mime; he saw old Chaplin films and decided to be an actor. Through mime/he felt he could "reach deeply into the hearts of people," he said. "Laughing and crying knows no language barrier. It has universal appeal, like with music, or dancing, painting or ballet It's a universal art It is as unlimited as the life of man .. . "Pm a wanderer, a gypsy. Having a family means sticking together. Being an actor I cannot stick to a family or stick to the world. The world, is my family. I have my outcry, but it's silent . . ."
