WHAT IN THE WORLD! By ALLEN GARVIN "I Could Stay Here Forever" Fifty thousand people o week still visit the grave of John F. Kennedy in Arlington Notional Cemetery, An average of 10 small ceremonies are held there each weekday. On weekends, such ceremonies average 20 a day. But tourists visiting the Washington area this summer will be the lost to view the temporary grave. In the fall, construction begins on a $2 million permanent memorial. The most distinguishing feature of the new gray-slate tomb will be the still-flickering "eternal flame" lit by Jacqueline Kennedy on that sad day in November, 1963. It is ironic that President Kennedy once visited the beautiful site where his grave is now located and mused: "I could stay here forever." Charlie's Daughter The gray- green eyes and coal-black hair of Geraldine Chaplin may become as familiar to movie-goers as the little moustache and baggy pants of her father Charlie Chaplin. The ex-con- Geraldine Chaplin in "Dr. Zhivago" vent-school-girl-turned-actress is now in Madrid working on the film version of "Dr. Zhivago." Already completed is "On a Beautiful Summer's Day" opposite Jean-Paul Belmondo. Ahead: three film leads, including the role of Anne Boleyn in Hal Wallis' "Anne of the Thousand Days." As fiercely unconventional as Daddy, Geraldine has made 10 porachute jumps and keeps a five-foot python in her room as a pet. "I don't want a quiet life and a big bowl of cabbage soup," she says. "Maybe later but not now. I enjoy my independence too much." Disneylaud Gets Hip Ten years ago this week Disneyland opened, and since then it has played host to neorly 50 million visitors. Now Walt Disney is out to prove that his park can jump at night for the teens as well as in the daytime for the kiddies. One million dollars is being spent this The music Disney loves summer to import "reasonably scrubbed and barbered" rock 'n' roll groups for evening dance sessions. The whole thing pains Disney, whose musical taste runs to Wayne King and barbershop quartets. But as a consolation, he will be able to listen to the increasingly beautiful music of his cash registers. Last year, Disneyland grossed $27 million, and the new rock policy should set the tills spinning even faster. Wauno le a Yankee? Mired as they have been in the lower reaches of the American League, the once- proud New York Yankees are now out beating the bushes for new ballplayers. A full-page ad in Sporting News recently begged high-school and college ballplayers to write in and get a Yankee scout to look them over. Two of the first applications were from Dennis Bennett of the Boston Red Sox and Jim Koat of the Minnesota Twins. Both said they wanted to be Yankees. "We suspect someone's pulling our leg,"'the Yank front office says sourly. Robert Preston, left, and Gary Grant Too Many Music Meu Robert Preston almost lost the chance to recreate on the screen his legendary Broadway role of "The Music Man." For casting reasons known only to themselves, studio officials saw Gary Grant as the film lead. Grant spurned the offer with the remark, "Mot only will I not do it, but if you don't use Robert Preston,! won't go see It."The same studio—^Warner Brothers—also first offered Rex Harrison's role in "My Fair Lady" to Cary. Apparently Warner's is determined to make a musical-comedy star out of him. Unusual Vacation idea An increasingly popular way to spend a summer vacation is to go back to college! Today, for Instance, Ohio University alumni are registering for a week-long return to classes at the Athens, Ohio, campus. Many other Alumni study art in summer at Ohio University American colleges and universities are offering similar programs. Most returnees take their wives along, study such subjects as art and literature, which they may have neglected In college, and—not Incidentally—get reinfected with the rah-rah spirit for their old alma maters. This often translates Into increased contributions at college fund-raising time. What Ever Happoned to Jake LA Motto? A bruising brawler of the fistic Forties, Jake La Motto's proudest boast Is that he was knocked, off his feet only once and was never koyoed. He was the middleweight champion until Sugar Roy Robinson lifted his crown from him in 1951, but today he is a comedian! Joke was lured into show business by Rocky Grazlano, a fellow pugilist who became an entertainer. Rocky got him on a Martha Raye tv show by Insisting. "If I can get away with It, you certainly cdn, too." Acting lessons followed, but Jake's delivery is Comedian Jake La Motta somewhat hampered by a badly flattened nose. Lo Motto—^who now tips the scales at 195, 30 pounds over his best fighting weight—has a very funny night-club routine about his boyhood days when the neighborhood "was so bod that If anyone paid the rent two months In a row. It was brought to the attention of the FBI." Cotton Reaches His Appomattox The Civil War finally Is over for Bruce Cotton, the eminent American historian. He has been writing about this epic conflict for 16 years—four times as long as It took to fight the war Itself. Now, after 20 volumes, hundreds of articles, and scores of lectures, he has revealed that he Intends to turn to other subjects. Bruce Cotton COVER: His fans call him "KiUer" KiUe- brew; his eritica call him "Harmless Harm." Harmon KUlebrew is a riddle you will learn about on page 6. Photo is by Ozzie Sweet.
