FORMER DETROITER Solomon
Miller, now working as an assis-
tant script writer at Universal in
Hollywood, writes about a movie
star he is well acquainted with
whose Mexican gardener informed
him that he had adopted a baby
and would like to show him to the
star ... He turned up shortly after
with an unmistakably Jewish
child. . . "How is it," the surpris-
ed actor said, "that you didn't
adopt a Mexican child?" . . . "Not
me," said the gardener firmly,
"a Jewish child for me. Jewish
children take care of their parents
when they are old."
LOU TROTSKY is disgusted
with those gas contests where you
can "win a lot of money." . . .
"It's all a fake," says Lou, who
collects the tickets anyway be-
cause, he tells wife Marion, "I
could be wrong!"
A 79-YEAR-OLD woman came
into the office of barrister Norm
Feder and asked for proceedings
to obtain a legal separation from
her 86-year-old husband . . . Norm
asked how long they had been
married, and the woman replied 60
years .. , He asked why she was
seeking a separation after all this
time . . . and the elderly lady re-
plied, "Enough's enough."
TV COMMERCIAL MAKERS
and sponsors take note . . . your
best audience is 2 - year - old
Brian Gussin, son of Diane and
Norman Gussin, who shuns regu-
lar programs but intently watches
the commercials . . Little Brian
is no fool—some of those TV com-
mercials now are by far better
than the program.
LISSA GLADSTONE bad her
Volkswagen tuned up and has been
having trouble ever since . .. No
small reason . . . The station that
did the tuning used all American-
made parts in her little German
car not used to such luxury.
JAN CAROL BERRIS, 24-year-
old daughter of Dr. Henry and
Eileen Berris, with the diplomatic
corps of the U.S. Embassy, was
the only one chosen to receive the
choice assignment at the U.S. In-
formation Agency in Hong Kong
as part of a group promoting good
will through culture, etc. . . . Jan,
who speaks Hebrew and Chinese
fluently, is in Washington train-
ing to know and think Chinese for
her diplomatic career.
CY MILLMAN COMPLAINED
that he couldn't teach his prize

for boxers to chase cars . . . I

WHILE TRAVELING through
the Texas panhandle, Phil Dul-

old settler and his son at a filling

self, but for my son here. I've

Wyler Gets Goldwyn Award for 'Funny Girl' Israeli Violinist
By HERBERT G. LUFT
(Copyright 1968, JTA Inc.)
HOLLYWOOD — William Wyler's
"Funny Girl," the autobiogra-
phical Fanny Brice screen musical,
was honored recently with the
"Samuel Goldwyn Award" as the
"best picture made in America in
1968." Presentation was made at
the San Francisco Film Festival
by Mayor Joseph L. Alioto to Ray
Stark, producer of the picture and
son-in-law of the late Miss Brice.
Film director Wyler who has
been honored with Oscars for
"Mrs, Miniver," "The Best Years
of Our Lives" and "Ben Hur," a
protege of the late Carl Laemmle
at Universal Studios, began to at-
tract critical attention 40 years
ago with "Hell's Heroes." Through-
out the 1930s and '40s, Wyler
guided a series of memorable
films for Samuel Goldwyn such
as "D odswort h," "Wuthering
Heights," "Dead End" and "The
Little Foxes," and, of course, "The
Best Years." He completed the cir-
cle by receiving the Goldwyn
Award presented for a picture he
