I have an insatiable curiosity about every- hing, and I like young people." Fortunately, producer Bill ?rye and director Jack Smight did not want her to play a psycho star in the sequel to Universal's biggest moneymaker. £ven so, she found the dialogue 'titsie-poo." - .

The United States, with per cent of the world's popu- ation, will not longer have the reedom lo use 35 per cent of he world's energy." But predictions of world dis- ster by prophets of doom are vrong because they ignore "the great X-factor--mankind's re- narkable ability to cope with his condition." Cheney said.
