1'nge 12 TllK HKKAU> Provo. l ; tah. Wednesday. April 9. 1S75 Acting: Carney, Burstyn ^ 2 Hikers Floods in Mississippi Delta Godfather II' Sweeps Academy Award Honors LOSANGKLKS(UPI)-"The Godfather Part II" completed an unprecedented one-two Academy Award sweep Tuesday night Mien Burstyn won a close contest for the best actress Oscar and television comedian Art Carney climaxed a night of surprises by taking the Oscar for best actor 'The Criflfather Part II" was named best picture —the first time an Oscar-winning movie was followed by an Oscar winning sequel — and outdistanced all rivals with a total of seven awards. II was a night of triumph for Francis Ford Coppola, who won an Oscar himself as best director for "Godfather II" and shared UK' Oscar for writing the film with Mario Puzo, author of the best-selling novel that began it all. Coppola saw his own family do as well as his powerful fictitious mobsters, with his father Carmine IVipfwla taking an Oscar for the movie's score, a rare and possibly unprecedented father-son victory It brought to 10 the number of Oscars won by the saga of the Corleone dynasty, begun by the original "Godfather," named the l>est picture of 1972. The best supporting actor and actress awards went to a traditional favorite, Ingrid Bergman, and a newcomer, Robert dc Niro, for his portrayal of a younger version of Marlon Brando's Don Vito Corleone in "Godfather II " Miss Burstyn won the best actress award for her performance as a housewife turned down-and-out singer in "Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore," nosing out powerful competition from Faye Dunaway ("Chinatown") and Gena Rowlands ("A Woman Under the Influence"). She had been nominated, but lost, last year for "The Exorcist" and in 1971 for her supporting performance in "The Last Picture Show." A jubilant Carney, who danced a little jig on his way to the stage to collect his statue, won the best actor award playing a gallant old man on a cross-country trek with his cat in "Harry and Tonto." Carney, Jackie Gleason's former television comedy foil, said he was grateful to his agent, who advised him, when he had doubts about a dramatic role sharing top billing with a cat: "Do it; you are old " "I'm 56 years old and I'm still a kid," Carney said. "I've still got stars in my eyes." Miss Bergman won her third Oscar, her first in a supporting role, for her performance as a religious fanatic in "Murder on the Orient Express." The awards again were used as a platform for a political statement. Burl Schneider, co- producer of the winning feature documentary, "Hearts and Minds," a film about the Vietnam War, read a telegram he said was from the chief Viet Cong representative in Paris. DinhDaThi Schneider said the telegram offered "greetings of friendship to all the American people" and asked him to "transmit to to all our friends in America our recognition of all that they have done on beha I [ of peace '' Uiter in the show emcee Frank Sinatra said he had been asked to make a statement on behalf of the Motion Picture Academy, saying: "We are not responsible for any political statements made on this program, and we're sorry they had to take place this evening." It was not clear whether the academy, which has not rebuked such political statements in the past, authorized the repudiation. A spokesman for NBC, which broadcast the show, said the statement had been written backstage by Bob Hope, who is not an officer of the academy, and academy representatives could not confirm that its officers had ordered the statement made. The victories by De Niro and Carney surprised observers, who regarded Fred Astaire as a sentimental vote shoo-in in the supporting actor class, and the best actor competition as mainly between Jack Nicholson ("Chinatown") and Al Pacino ("Godfather II"), neither of whom attended the ceremony. Italy's "Amarcord" was named best foreign film. Best song honors went to "We May Never Love Like This Again" from "Towering Inferno," which was second in the Oscar sweepstakes with three awards. Miss Burstyn was not present to accept her award. Miss Bergman said "It is too much for so little work 1 think Valentina Cortese should have won it for 'Day for Night.'" The 2'L--hour show was hosted by Hope, Shirley MacLaine, Sammy Davis Jr., and Frank Sinatra, each of whom was introduced with a series of film rli[>s from Academy Award shows of past years For Year Ending October Cosf of Living Up 12 to U Per Cent WASHINGTON U'PI, - The government's hypothetical family of four needed 12 to U per cent more money during the 12 months ending last October just to keep up with its living sule in the previous year.

UPI Telephotos Ehrlichman's Wife Gets Employment SEATTLE (UPI) - Mrs. John Ehrlichman has received final approval for a $10,000 emergency employment job. Mrs. Ehrlichman has actually held the job with the Seattle Symphony Orchestra since March 1. City and King-Snohomish Manpower Consortium officials said Tuesday a final review of the job and Mrs. Ehrlichman's qualifications indicate she is entitled to the post and allocation of the publicly funded position to the symphony is justified. The wife of former President Richard Nixon's domestic adviser said earlier she needed the money for her family. "John hasn't worked the past year, you know," she said. Mrs. Ehrlichman's job is as symphony education program coordinator. She got the job under the Comprehensive Employment Training Act. The family continues to live in a large home in the exclusive Hunt's Point district. But assistant regional director for manpower of the Labor Department here, Jess C. Ramaker, says "the act doesn't address itself to that (owning an expensive home) in any way, shape or form. Safe But Weakened PINKHAM NOTCH. N.H.

Sharkey and Yazoo. N-Weapon Danger Increasing WASHINGTON (UPI) - Director Fred C. Ikle of the Arms Control and Disarmament Agency warned today of a growing momentum among non- nuclear nations to develop atomic weapons Although he did not clearly specify what countries he suspected of doing this, he told a disarmament seminar held on Capitol Hill: "The news on nuclear proliferation is bad. "Several countries, not now nuclear weapons states, appear to be making determined efforts to acquire a capability that would enable them to build their own atomic bombs. "How far they will go, and how many others will join them, are still open questions." Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, D- Mass., one of the keynote speakers, outlined an eight- point approach for negotiated disarmament He called, in particular, for a complete ban on underground weapons testing, for reductions in the nuclear arsenals of the United States and the Soviet Union and stronger guarantees that nuclear weapons would not be used in warfare. Ikle specifically mentioned India, Israel, Brazil and Argentina as countries who have indicated they would not join the Nonproliferation Treaty, an international accord promoted by the United States and Russia to prevent the spread of nuclear weapons.
