NOSLAVE to taste is Betty
N Ford, y
Frerstwhile first wife, who
was out being candid and
courageous again this week
discussing her former drug and
alcohol problems. She is not, it now
surfaces, the only former presidential
spouse with dirty linen to trot out: A
collection of letters soon to be
published by William Morrow and
Co. reveals that Eleanor Roosevelt
was in love with Lorena Hickok, a
female reporter who covered Mrs.
Roosevelt for the Associate Press.
THE thirty-year correspondence
between the two women began in Oc-
tober, 1932, and letters passed back
and forth almost daily. A par-
ticularly rich passage, dated March
7,1933, reads: "Hick, darling .. . Oh,
I want to put my arms around you. I
ache to hold you close .

(Laurence Olivier, 1948) 8 only, AUD. A
By interiorizing many of Hamlet's monologues, Olivier creates a steely, isolated
and haunted Hamlet. The Prince of Denmark is -a man, not a bewildered stu-
dent, with the added conflict of his mother's incentuous affections. Olivier
has directed Hamlet with deliberate pacing to produce a powerful and stagger-
ing story. Even those unfamiliar with the story can understand the full meaning
of the words. With JEAN SIMMONS as Ophelia.

WHAT DO YOU MAKE OF THIS? Singin' David Clayton Thomas of
Blood Sweat and Tears has been charged with hitting a 21-year-old female fan
in the face. Manhasset, N.Y.'s finest say that Thomas and Dana Tarulli got
acquainted last August at a nightclub where the group was playing, and sub-
sequently retired to the woman's home. Their little fight-figure this-came af-
ter an argument about "personal problems'." Thomas, 38, was freed on $500 bail
pending his trial Dec. 10. Striking a female fan of a faded rock group in the face
after she has been gracious enough to invite you into her home carries a
maximum penalty of a year in the slam and a $1,000 fine. It all sounds a lot like
the stuff of which The Knack songs are made.r
NOTED MICHIGAN ALUMNUS Tom Hayden and his wife Jane
Fonda are still making news: While touring a solar powered farm.in Woodward,
Iowa, a hydrogen-oxygen machine that converts water into clean-burning
hydrogen gas prodbced a small explosion. What do you suppose Jane did at that
surprise? The same thing she probably did when learning tht the University of
Michigan was damned if they would pay her and her bothersome spouse their
full honorarium: She screamed and jumped back. Yes, she did. That's about it
for garbage news this week.
