Mixed emotions voiced

by cautious



By The Associated Press
The news was good, the wives
and families of American priso-
ners of war agreed after hearing
the President announce the Viet-
nam agreement Tuesday night.
But optimism was tempered with
"We will wait until we hear
Everett's voice on the tele-
phone," said D e i i a Alvarez,
whose brother, Navy Lt. Cmdr.
Everett Alvarez Jr. was shot
down in August 1964 to become
the first U. S. POW in Indochina.
"I never really thought we'd
hear this. It's like something
you dream about and never
think is really going to happen,"
said Charlotte Christian, whose
husband has been a POW for
more than six years.
Christian, sitting on the floor
of her den with her three young-
sters clustered around, cried
quietly when she heard Nixon's
She wept again when the Presi-
dent said all POW's would be
home within 60 days.
Louise Mulligan, whose hus-
band has been a prisoner more
than seven years, said, "I guess
it's finally going to be over. I
hope it is .But too much has
happened. After seven years of


suppressing your emotions, I
can't jump up and down."
The attractive, gray-eyed wo-
man, who heard the news with
four of her six sons, said, "Pres-
ident Nixon said 'peace with
"I don't think it's peace with
honor. I'm sorry. I don't think
those poor people - the South
Vietnamese - are going to see
peace ... .
Both wives are concerned
about their friends whose hus-
bands are missing in action and
might not return. "For us, it's
the beginning; for them, it's the
end," said Christian.
Under the protocol of the
cease-fire agreement, the United
States, North Vietnam and other
parties are obligated to ex-
change complete lists of captur-
ed military personnel and civi-
lians on Saturday.
This should provide the first
hard information on just how
m a n y American servicemen
are held captive and where they

587 captured and another 1,335
missing. A big question is how
many of these men listed as
missing are in POW camps in
North Vietnam, South Vietnam

or Laos and how many have not
been found.
Within 15 days after the cease-
fire, the signatories will agree on
choosing two or more national
Red Cross societies to "visit all
places where captured military
personnel and foreign civilians
are held."
The United States long has con-
tended that the North Vietna-
mese have violated Geneva Con-
ventions on treatment of priso-
ners of war by refusing to al-
low the International Red Cross
to inspect POW camps.
"I'm numb," said Mary Ann
Fuller, wife of Navy Capt. By-
ron Fuller, who was captured in
July, 1967. "After so many,
years of watching presidential
speeches and then crying after
they were over, I simply can't
make my mind accept what he's
told us all.
"I can't seem to cry," she
added in her Jacksonville, Fla.,
home. "My children did, but I
just can't."
"The first thing I'm going to
do is clean the kitchen. I'm five
years behind in my houseclean-
ing," she laughed. "Next, I'm
going to go get Byron's clothes

"Leisurely, affectionate and gloriously old-fashioned
addition to the Sherlock Holmes folklore. The famous
consulting detective meets his match in a seemingly
distraught widow (the superb Genevieve Page) who
carries a parasol wherever she goes. Canaries, the
fabled Loch Ness monster, and even Queen Victoria
become involved. This is Billy Wilder's most beautiful
movie, it is also a most decidedly amusing one ...
. . an affectionate and wonderfully old-fashioned
movie which purports to give 'some hitherto suppress-
ed'.facts about the man. Since Wilder has never been
known for making movies that were beautiful to look
at, it comes as something of a shock to discover such
a gorgeous-looking movie. 221B Baker Street never
had it so good and . . . the film is a constant treat.
"... director Wilder has seen to it that the detective's
near-defeat at the hands of a woman is aconsistently
entertaining one. The writing (bydWilder and I.A.L.
Diamond) is always amusing, and . . . the film is
both friendly and fun and finally, surprisingly mov-
ing. Genevieve Page . . . steals the film. The actress
is more betwitching than ever (Belle de Jour) and
she has an exit scene that is the best all year (just
as Sally Kellerman in M*A*S*H has the year's best
entrance) . . . Christopher Challis's color photography
is beautiful, and Alexander Trainer's production de-
sign deserves recognition at award time."

"Billy Wilder goes a bit mod in a satirical and intrigu-
ing story about how Sherlock almost upsets the British
Empire. Topnotch production, good show.
"Billy Wilder does a a measure of putting the audi-
ence on . . . The put-on revolves about whether Sher-
lock Holmes is or is not adaptable to men, not women,
and how in the name of Victoria, Our Queen, could he
have been so wrong about those German spies? Espe-
cially the pretty one who is all girl.
". . . it comes to be an entertaining show and a
change in pace for audiences which just might be
jaded with cinematic modern times.
"Robert Stephens is the detective consultant, the man
from Baker Street who fakes a story about his being
not all masculine to' duck out on an assignment from
a Russian ballerina. But is he really faking? Stephens
plays Sherlock in rather gay fashion under Wilder's
tongue-in-cheek direction.
"Colin Blakely (as Dr. John H. Watson) . . . is a
performer who plays it broad and bright. One fun
scene has him doing a backstage party dance bit with
the Russian ballet girls only to find that the boys of
the ballet, given to believe that he is just that way
with Sherlock, have elected to replace the girls in the
arm-in-arm frolic."
