Ell/nbclh Taylor and Richard lurlmi, who once said they'd oved each other too much, say hoy'rc splitting up again -and this time they say It's for good. Miss Taylor and Burton, whose stormy, lavish relation- ililp began on the set of "Cloo- Niern" and often seemed lo resemble t h e i r movie "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?," announced through a spokesman Thursday they will seek a dl vorcc. They said they had isked their attorney lo end the 10-yenr marriage In the court it Berne, Switzerland, where .hey make their official home. Irreconcilable differences" Car Ban Asked NEW YORK (AP) -- Sen. Jacob Javits, R-N.Y., says the federal government should ban m a n u f a c t u r e of large luxury cars because they consume too much gas. Javits, who drives a 1071 Ford Mustang, says, "There seems to be a resumption o: the appetite for the large cars which the automobile com panics are going along with The government should not al low it to continue." Javits made his comments Thursday during an energy conference sponsored by the Regional Plan Association ane the State School of Labor am Industrial Relations vcre cited as grounds for i!l- rorcc between Burton, 48, and Miss Taylor, Vi. whoso four revlou» marriages and acknowledged beauty combined with acting talent to take her to he top of her profession. The f i n a l spilt had been rumored for months. But the rcla- ionshlp that hit headlines In when they took up housc- cccplng while still married to ormcr spouses had survived other rocky times such as icavy d r i n k i n g bouts and rumors of various extramarital affairs. Liz once declared of Burton, "I love him enough to stand by ilm no matter what he might do." Last s u m m e r , when the couple announced they were separating, she said: "Maybe we loved each other too much." Burton agreed. Following the separation, Miss Taylor was being squlrec about by a Los Angeles used car dealer. Before long Burton flew lo California, the two em braced and then headed for Eu rope. But In the last month reports of trouble pouring out of Oro ville, Calif., where the Burtons recently filmed "The Klans men," told of Liz' unhappiness with Burton's heavy drinkinig and an incident in which he presented t w o l o c a l women with jewelry. Miss Taylor, long ago dubbei "the most beautiful woman in the world," left Oroville to an pear on the Academy Awan ACNQI1FACM U * f A Feature 7:30 p.m, GEOKGE C.
