John Dean quashes
OHN DEAN, noted canary, has heard all the rumors that CIA agent
Richard Ober was "Deep Throat," the White House insider who passed
along information to the Washington Post during the Watergate crisis that
brought the Nixon administration crashing down.
Honk, says Dean of the claim made by author Deborah Davis is an
unauthorized biography of Post owner Katharine Graham. "Even Henry Kis-
singer wasn't that much of an insider... To be an insider in the Nixon White
House, you not only hadto serve the president; you also had to serve time."
The bespectacled former legal counsel to Nixon, now living in California off
the profits from his book Blind Ambition, has stated he knows who "Deep
Throat" really is, but will not share his secret.
WHAT'S THIS? Yankee baseball violence vs. oriental martial arts? Naw, it's
just Lou Brock, major league baseball player, entertaining Japanese Premier
Masayoshi Ohira during a Tokyo visit. Brock is imitating Japan's home-run
king Sadaharu Oh, and the Premier is laughing. So is Richard Nixon (right).
What does he have to laugh about? Well, it's not "Deep Throat." Nixon's wife
Pat was released from the hospital Monday after a bout with bronchial
BEFORE THEIR VOICES CHANGED. Continuing our series of photos of the
stars when they were young is a shot of the Bee Gees back in the good old
days when they were still in Australia. Robin, Barry and Maurice Gibl are
pictured from left. Today, of course, Barry has much more hair, and Maurice
somewhat less, but a better look can be had at the falsetto kings of the
seventies during tonight's big TV show cleverly entitled "The Bee Gees
Special." Check your listings.

MUHAMMED ALI is approaching critical mass, when the gravitational field
around his ever-larger body will be so strong that not even light will be able
to escape. This will make photographs impossible, so take a good look. The
three-time heavyweight champion has been working out at a Los Angeles
gym in order to lose some of his 250 pounds, which is evidently more than can
be said for his brother-fat-man, Detroit Free Press columnist Bob Talbert.
Talbert, who by his own admission resembles a whale as much as a human
being, devoted one entire column to discussions of his remarkable girth.
Seeing himself in a mirror, he writes, causes him to reflect upon a spilled bowl
of pudding oozing and settling obscenely. He chortles through a description of
himself resembling "an unmolded mound of Jello." Your sophomoric People-
mania page believes that Muhammed Ali's handful of fat is absrobingly
interesting, whereas Talbert's cheesy discussions of his astonishing embonpoint
inappropriate, embarassing, and just one more example of the continuing
decay of civilization as we know it.
Last we heard from toothsome FARRAH FA WCETT, she
,f was falling down and spilling canapes all over Egyptians.
at's new with her anyway?
Farrah, recently divorced, is realizing that life is stern and earnest:
Her movie career has been a wretched bust, and she's taken to hawking
shampoos and cosmetics. Last week, she walked away from an appearance
at an Oregon shopping center opening after she was unable to fight through a
crowd that had gathergd to see-her. Seems security guards were unable to
keep people from grabbing at the goods. Elsewhere, the district manager of
a New York telephonecompany has ordered employees to take down several
Farrah pin-ups because they are "tasteless, socially offensive, sexist and
unbusinesslike." No doubt unbusinesslike because the overrated
Charlie's Angel emeritus is out of a real job, but no matter: The union is
planning to appeal this ruling.
Being college students, we lose track of beauty contests and
, who wins them. Please, for our scrapbooks, what is the latest?
ot last week was the new Miss World crowned as thousands drooled
at London's Royal Albert Hall. She is Gina Swainson, a wine-tasting major at-
the University of Wisconsin who represented Bermuda. We swear it, a wine-
tasting major. This is a concentration so far unavailable at Michigan, not
even in the Residential College.
What's this about JOHN TRA VOLTA dancing with a
"Ihe rumors are true, says this week's issue of "The Star," tabloid for
comatose housekeepers. Dancin' John had his picture snapped by a Star
photographer when, after having ripped through several beers at a cast par-
ty for his new film, Urban Cowboy, he picked up a chicken and pranced all
over the dance floor. This in response to ugly rumors propogated by US
magazine earlier this fall that the studly Travolta "isn't getting any."
DOLLY PAR TON makes my flesh creep. Along with those
r/. meretricious clothes and her extraordinary bosom, she ob-
v sly dips her face in makeup and her hair in shellac. Does she
honestly believe that this bizzare appearance would excite music lovers
to do anything other than burn her in effigy?
"I look like a 50's hooker," admits the country music phenomenon in the
December Ladies' Home Journal. "If I saw somebody else in this outfit, I'd
probably think, Good Lord, look at that gawdy, awful looking person. But,"
she adds, "I like to think I look pretty." Terrifying excess is, in fact, Dolly's
trademark, and she says "if I wore the right amount of makeup, the right
hairdo, and simple, basic, beautiful clothes, why, I'd just feel like a dishrag.
I'd feel naked." And the thought of the bovine Miss P. naked about stretches
the imagination to its limits. More next week.
