Miasma in Moscow
MOSCOW - Sviatoslav Richter, of-
ten considered the Soviet Union's fore-
most concert pianist, has pneumonia
and has canceled all performances, a
spokesman for the state concert organi-
zation said Thursday.
The spokesman said the perform-
ances would be rescheduled when the
pianist recovers.
Richter, who also had pneumonia last
winter, canceled his appearances in the
Russian Winter Festival in Moscow last

mitted to a mental institution.
For seven months, police said, Bohl-
mann used a syringe to spray a solution
of 98 per cent sulfuric acid on priceless
paintings. His spree began after, his
wife was killed in a traffic accident,
police said. Bohlmann was arrested in
his Hamburg apartment hours after
being seen during his last attack Oct. 7
in Kassel.
Restorers were pleased to discover
that the paintings had not been
damaged as badly as originally thought
because the colors were protected by
layers of centuries-old varnish.

What next?
'Samurai Strangler'?
LOS ANGELES - A new exploitation
film called The Surfside Strangler is be-
ing readied for release at a time Los
Angeles area police are still hunting the
Hillside Strangler.
A review released by the producer,
Somma Films, said it would send out
"shock waves." The film went into pro-
duction before the current wave of mur-
ders, but, like the real case, it in-
volves the strangulation of prostitutes
and innocent teen-agers.
In the movie the strangler is a mid-
dle-aged man who was abused as a
child by his mbther, an alcoholic pros-
titute, and her pimp.
Nazi-nabbed art fetches $
NEW YORK - A collection of Dutch
paintings, taken by Adolf Hitler as ran-
som to let a Jewish family flee Nazi-oc-
cupied Holland, is expected to bring
hundreds of thousands of dollars in an
art sale.
The heirs of the family, said a spokes-
man for Sotheby Parke Bernet gallery,
had no idea of the value of the paint-
ings, each of which bears a seal show-
ing it was in Hitler's private collection.
In January 1942, Hitler took seven
pictures from the Alfred Cohens. The
family owns department stores in Am-
sterdam and The Hague.
One bearing the Hitler collection
number 2172, expected to fetch about
$90,000, was recovered in 1946 from a
salt mine near Salzburg, Austria,
where Hitler had hidden it as he real-
ized his downfall was near. It was re-
turned to the Cohens.
The picture is Jan Steen's A Village
Its survival in New York had been un-
suspected until the Cohen family asked
Sotheby to examine some old pictures
which they thought might be valuable.
They were.
Also being sold is a collection, also
unknown until now, which was brought
to the United States during World War
II by Alfred Zweig, brother of Austrian
writer Stefan Zweig.
The gallery said discovery of the
collections show there may be other
forgotten collections and important
groups of.Old Masters brought to Amer-
ica by refugees during World War II.
The sale is expected to realize at least
$1.4 million.
Gallery president John Marion said
dealers are flying in from all over the
"Because of the decline in the
dollar," he said, "holders of such hard
currency as German marks, Swiss
francs and Japanese yen can buy much
cheaper here than anywhere else."
