He's Jasoline at a Bronx filling sta- ion to international recognition as this era's acknowledged naster-painter of the New York City scene. Nation Shivers With Record Breaking Cold By The Associated Pres The eastern half of the nation shivered under a record-break- ng blanket of early cold and snow today. Milwaukee, Wis., set an Oct. 3 record with a low predawn temperature of 27 degrees. New lows for the date also were recorded in Indianapolis, Ind.; Buffalo, N.Y., and Birmingham, Ala. An Oct. 3. 1886. low of 32 degrees was surpassed in Chicago, marking the third straight day of record low temperatures there. Pittsburgh, Pa., had Its earliest snowfall in a century along with record cold for the date. An inch of snow whitened Syracuse, N.Y., and there were scattered snowfalls in the lower Great Lakes region, the upper He's gone from the crowded loneliness of the city streets to a sprawling Westchester stone and glass house where crowds of admirers, critics and reporters gather. Fasanella is through with the struggle for recognition that lasted 58 years. He and his wife, Eve, don't drive arounc anymore peddling postcard re productions of his paintings. In stead, buyers come to htm anc offer thousands of dollars fo the painlings he once couldn' give away. It all started in 1972 when Au tomation House, a labor union center, staged an exhibition o works by long-time labor or ganizer Fasanella. New Yorl Magazine did a cover story 01 m and the boom was on. His pictures, majestic i scope and tiny in detail, were sensation. "New York City," now o Ohio Valley and Appalachians. the northern Oct 2 cold records were broken Wednesday in Charleston, W.Va.; Binghamlon, N.Y.; Grand Rapids, Mich., and South Bend, Ind. Thundershowers that dumped an inch of rain on Bakersfield, Calif., Wednesday, moved eastward. The northern corners of both coasts were cloudy. '.; _ , Temperatures before dawn ranged from 22 at Bradford, Pa.-to 89 at Needles, Calif. Study Compares Area Illness And Death Rates LITTLE HOCK (AP) -- A stijdy indicates that illness and death rate in small communities are as high or higher than those in the poorer areas of large cities in a four-state area -- Arkansas, Oklahoma, Missouri and Kansas. The study by consultants for the Ozarks Regional Commission is in its second year. It has been conducted with assistance from the U.S. Public Health Service and has cost the commission about $100,000. The study was commissioned before Louisiana joined the ORC. The Ozarks region has what the report called a "well-defined geographic distribution of socioeconomic conditions" with the wealthier areas being in the north and middle and lower socioeconomic conditions in the central and southeastern parts. "As expected, the health problems follow this same general...pattern," the study says. The specific reasons for the loan in City Hall, is over nin feet long and more than fou feet high. "I'm trying you th whole city," he said at the Co Kcrr Gallery where his firs commercial exhibition opene this week. "What it's reall made of, not just the buildings So there are the factories worked in. There's the hi enormous church. There's kit playing games in front of tl: church and there's street pet dlcrs and all kinds of cars an trucks. "There's the barrooms an apartments, guys" flying pigeon on the roof. I wasn't trying I put out a piece of propagand; I felt this is the way it was." If this is the way it was, whs is it like now? "Everybody calls me a ci painter." said the newly mat commuter in his gruff Ne Yorkese. "I can paint (he cou try just as good as the city · but it took me 50 years to d "It's a question of identity, can't paint the new part -- on the old houses." Everyday he drives' his so Marcantonio -- named for tl laic Manhattan congressma and radical leader Vito Ma cantonio -- to school and h daughter, Gina, 16, to the ra way station at nearby Dobb Ferry on the'Hudson River. "It's like an Italian to\yn," 1 said. "I got five paintings the town. I'm drawing Dobb's Ferry left and right." Fasanella calls it "my new style. That's the way I'm painting now," but it doesn't look much different from the old. correlation problems in between health rural areas and poorer aras oef cities were not determined. "However, can be confidently speculated that, in general, have the small communities similar social, economic and environmental conditions contributing to poor health of the population in low socioec- nomic areas of the larger ur ban communities." Small communities also lack the advantages of the health delivery system available in cities, the report noted. Cooper's Attorney Says Subversive Laws Too Broad LITTLE ROCK (AP) -- An attorney for Dr. Grant Cooper, a self-styled Communist, argued Wednesday that the state's subversive activities statutes are so broad that they prohibit the exercise of con stitutionally protected 'rights. The atlorney, Morton Gitel man of P'ayetteville, told Judge G. Thomas Eisele of U.S. Dis trict Court that such rights in :Iude the right to advocate the "tearing down of a bridge or the closing of a highway." Gitelman said the statute: could not be "saved" or rulei constitutional by interpretation because they were so broad "Precision must be the touch stone of regulation" in sensitiv areas such as freedom of ex prcssion, he said. Cooper taught history at th University of Arkansas-Littl Rock until he was ousted. H sued Pros. Atty. Lee Munson o Pulaski County in IVIay, con lending that he was in (hinge of prosecution by Munson unde the statutes. The suit askc Eisele to declare the statute unconstitutional. MOSCOW (AP) -- The Soviet Union boasts it Is the world's largest publisher--yet there is a book shortage that has spawned a flourishing black market for a public hungry for literature. , , "Now, a's never before, it is difficult to buy a good book although they are issued in bigger numbers t h a n ever before," the Writer's Union newspaper, Literary Gazette, lamented recently. . Moscow's "House of Books", which Russians say is Europe's largest bookstore, has counters on its two floors that would stretch a mile if placed .end to end. But clerks there routinely tell customers: "No Tolstoi, no Dostoyevsky, No Pushkin, No Chekov" -- all Russian classics that are easier to find in Hel sinki, Finland, or Berkeley. Calif., than in Moscow. ' : , The reason there -is a shortage of these classics is'that the printings are not big enough to meet public demand. Printings of these and other books are not big enough because the pa per industry simply doesn't produce enough. Of the printing paper avail able, a huge share goes for ideological and propaganda works that are given priority by the Communist party. There also is what Literary Gazette alls waste. H recently criticized publish- ng houses for putting out "fan- astically big issues" of 1111- vanted books. In Tashkent, a publishing louse issued GOO.000 copies of he novel "The Headless Horseman" by \Vaync Reid and most piled up in stores and ware louses unsold, the newspaper said. It added that one Moscow publishing house put out 30,000 copies of its own publishing plan for 1973 and nobody wanted them. "On the same paper, they could have printed Pushkin's children's stories and wpult :iave paid (or the book," Liter ary Gazette said. Authors .such as Mikhail Bui gakov and poet Osip Mandelsh lam who pose ideological prob lems for Soviet literary czar, were issued last year in tin; editions. But there was no pub lie sale in the Soviet Union and they are best purchased in Ncv York, Copenhagen or some olh er Western cities where a larg share of the copies were ship ped. The Soviet book publishini scene is replete with suci ironies. Among the greatest i that Soviet literature is bes known abroad for authors lik Solzheriilsyn or Pasterna 'hose novels are not published ere for political reasons. Like most enterprises in the ovict Union, publishing is rur y the state and books ant icir authors are supposed to erve the state. Thus scientific nd technical literature along vith Marxist-Leninist works 01 lolitics and economics get firs :all over other nonfiction, fie ion and poetry, whose range is narrowed even further by cen sorship. That's one more reason tha )0bks of real appeal to averag readers are in short supply. Oil Slick SANTA BARBARA, Calll ( A P ) -- S t a t e investigator planned to fly over a 12-rnil section of rocky coastline led a :o inspect an oil slick tha Coast Guard officials say wi caused by natural seepage. · Lt. Terrence O'Connell, wh led a Coast Guard team tramp ing the beach between Ventur and Santa Barbara checkin for damage, said they foun "mostly pea-sized, crude balls" along the high tidelin mark. The seepage had caused damage to the beach are south of Santa Barbara an presented no danger to fish fowl, the learn reported. n Lower Prices LITTLE ROCK (AP) - The rkansas Crop and Livestock eporting Service said today lat Arkansas farmers received ower prices for their farm roducLs during the monlh end- ng Sept. 15 as compared to the revious month.
