The rock group Chicago, which at tracted more c u s t o mers thai the Beatles in its last concert at the Civic Arena, r e t u r n s on Nov. 11. ... Mama Cass Elliott's singing of "The Good Times Mr. Anderson Are Coming" has stayed with me since I first heard it in the movie "Monte Walsh." COMLGUP The Academy Awards will be given on Thursday next year, first time the i n d u s t r y has departed from its early-in-the-week off-night-at-the-movies s c h edule for years ... The Chris Miles Trio plays Wednesday to Saturday now through January at the Ranch, Rodi Road, Penn Hills . . . Roman Polanski has chosen the little-known British actor Jon Finch for the title role in his film of "Macbeth" ... One of my favorite old films, "The Picture of Dorian Grey," has been re-made, and the new version with Helmut Berger of "The Damned" opens next at the Kings Court, one of its first play-dates anywhere in the country. IN THE BAND: Frank George of Glassport was visible in the trumpet section of the orchestra for Broadway's "Company" in last week's TV special on the recording of the original cast album ...

Frankly, I've loved culture since I was a student at Ohio State where culture had to do with cultivati n g the soil. Well, the N.Y. City Wilson cultural council sponsored a preview of Richard Rodgers' and Danny Kaye's "Two By Two" musical and Mayor Lindsay and nice wife Mary arrived at the Imperial Theater, greeted by something different. Not boos, not hisses, not jeers, but shouts and yells: "Homosexuals need your help . . . homosexuals need your help ... end police harassment ... end police harassment . . ." They called police. Lots of brass was soon on the sidewalks. The pickets disappeared. It was enough .to drive a man to drink and it did. It was also the opening of the bar in the Imperial lobby. (First bar in a Shubert theater.) There are now 7 bars in the 30 or so theaters so if you go to a Broadway show you have one chance in 4 of getting a drink in the theatre. Still hoping for culture. I took my seat, but only after the usher dislodged somebody from it. "Would you move?" the usher lady asked the wrong-sitter. "Do you know the word 'please,' " bristled the somebody. "Would you move, please?" eneered the usher lady. From there I rushed up to the Metropolitan Museum to a party for 726 other culture-lovers where Danny Kaye and wife Sylvia were embraced by the Mayor, by Richard Rodger the Bennett Cerfs, Ben Mr. HERE AND THERE: Veteran Pittsburgh musician Luke Riley is now playing at the Gaslight Club in Shadyside . . . Carl Reiner has cut "the controversial ending of "Where's Poppa?" so when it hits movie houses in December it will end on an upbeat note . . . Joan Bennett presided last week at a showing of her movies and those of her sister Constance and her father Richard at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. . . . Three new ballets will be performed by the Ballet Folklorico of Mexico this evening at Syria Mosque. ONCE MORE: Next show at the Nixon will be a return of the revue "You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown" Thanksgiving week. . . . Ernest Hal-ler, Oscar-winning cameraman for "Gone With the Wind." died recently at 74. . . . William Goldman's "The Season" is now out in paperback, and I don't think anyone has ever written a more readable book about Broadway. ... A hit when Zoe Caldwell left the show, the reopened production of "Colette" with British actress Fenella Fielding didn't last long in New York. FOR BUFFS: Free films being shown this week in Mon-roeville Mall's community room include experimental films on Thursday and foreign film highlights Friday at 6:30 p.m. ... "The Don Lewis Experience," an organ concert from Bach to Bacharach, will be presented Tuesday, Nov. 17 at 8 p. m. in Duquesne University ballroom . . . Judging by calls to this desk, Joe Namath's fans are more than satisfied with "'C.C. and Company," even if the critics aren't. ... As part of the nude wave in the culture world of Europe, the Netherlands Dance Theater has a new ballet called "Mutations," in which several members of the troupe appear totally nude. It was choreographed by Glen Tetley, Wilkinsburg native and former Post-Gazette copy boy and carrier. From news to nudes. IN CONCLUSION: Eddy Arnold will entertain at the United Fund's final dinner meeting tomorrow at the Hilton. . . . McKeesport's Lois Best, the first "Champagne Lady" with Lawrence Welk when he was at the William Penn, was heard on CBS recently with her husband Jules Herman's band from New York's Roseland Ballroom ... MGM's children's classic series of matinees bows in more than 60 area theaters this weekend, with Russ Tamblyn in "Tom Thumb." Grauers, Clyde Newhouses, Nat Cummings, Phil Levins, Charlotte Ford, Tony Forst-mann, Julia Meade and incidentally by the usual few party-crashers. It was a fine party and I think the famous lady there who told me she was going to wear her expensive jewelry in spite of the danger of holdups was showing the average spirit. "I'm American and I'm going to wear it," she said. "And you're not scared?" I said. "Of course I'm scared but I think it'd be un-American not to wear it," said she. Nancy Wilson & Robert Hooks are now a big romance item . . . Danny Kaye has a 4-letterer in "Two by Two" hut it gets a laugh . . . Rusty Madeline Kahn and Walter Willison are going to be good, too, in that show . . . Erroll Garner had a spectacular opening at the Plaza Persian Room . . . Marcello Mas-trioiannl (whose "The Pizza Triangle" is opening here) arrives Thanksgiving to make his first film in the U. S. "May I Introduce Mysp'f Rrccn Pa-pleo" . . .
