AR S ARCADE... a-weekly roundup
"I didn't mean it-
can we get new ones?"
VATICAN CITY - Administrators
and art restorers at the Vatican are
disputing who is to blame for the
damage to two Raphael frescoes.
,The wall paintings are on the ceiling
of the Raphael Gallery of the papal
residential palace and depict the
creation of Adam and Eve, and Eve at
work. They were damaged in 1975
during a routine cleaning by the
Vatican's Restoration Laboratory, but
the incident was kept secret until repor-
ted in the Italian press last week.
Dioclecio Redig de Campos,
Brazilian director of the Vatican
Museums, gave a newspaper interview
in which he blamed a restorer who he
said acted "without consulting his
The Vatican's 15 art restorers issued
a statement Monday saying Redig's
story was untrue. They said he was
blaming a man who died two years ago.
They claimed the paintings were
damaged by a new technique that was
being experimented with under the
supervision of a special director, a
technical assistant and the Vatican's
Office of Scientific Research.
Redig said the damage was caused by
use of the chemical potassium
aluminate to fasten the colors of the
frescoes. But one restorer told repor-
ters it was due to the refusal of "a
superior," apparently meaning a
clerical member of the Vatican staff, to
permit the application of acid after the
The restorer, who said he didn't want
to be named because he wanted "no
troubles with the holy ones," said the
two chemicals had been used together
with perfectly satisfactory results in
the past. But he said the superior,
whom he also refused to identify, in-
sisted on following to the letter
provisions of the International
Restoration Charter, which bans acids.
The bright colors of the fresco
became pale and even disappeared in
spots, he said.
CBS follows suit

Columbia Broadcasting System will

day, the Waltons for Thursday, and so
Like the other network anniversaries,
clips will be shown from the past 50
years of CBS radio and television as

It's been real
iOS ANGELES - Beatrice Arthur
s4ys she is leaving television's Maude,
nmaking her the third star to quit a
N rman Lear series in the current TV
#Miss Arthur made the announcement
M onday, about 10 days after taping the
filial show of the season. The actress,
4o is married to theatrical director
Gene Saks, says she wants to spend
nrore time with her husband and sons,
Matthew,16, and Daniel, 14.
"It's been absolutely glori-
ous, I've. loved every minute of it.
But it has been gix years and I think it's
time to leave," she said in a telephone
interview. In the final show the title
character, Maude Findlay, gets elected
"Norman had had an idea some time
ago in which Maude becomes a
congresswoman and moves to
Washington," Miss Arthur said Mon-
"Norman said if you go on for another
year, we'll do it in Washington with a
new cast. And if you don't, it's a hell of a
way to end the show."
Rob Reiner and Sally Struthers taped
their last episode of All in the Family
about 10 days ago. Carroll O'Connor
and Jean Stapleton will continue the
show alone next season.
Maude was a spin-off from All in the
Family after Miss Arthur had appeared
as Edith Bunker's liberal and liberated
cousin. Lear said he saw Maude Fin-
dlay as the liberal counterpart to bigot
Maude was in the top 20 of the Nielsen
ratings as recently as last spring. But it
was out of the top 20 this season.
Mrs. Brogliatti, a spokesman for
Norman Lear, said she knew of no plan
to find a replacement for Miss Arthur
as Maude. She said, "Norman feels no
one else could do Maude."
Art for the boss
CHICAGO - A group of Chicago ar-
tists - fearing the city will hire an out-
sider to build a memorial to Richard J.
Daley - unveiled their mostly
irreverent ideas Friday of how the late
mayor should be remembered.
The exhibit entitled Daley's Tomb,
opened at the artist-run N.A.M.E.
Gallery, just two blocks north of the
Chicago River that Daley loved to dye
green on St. Patrick's Day.
The show features 45 works in various
media. It will run until April 2, suppor-
ted in part by the National Endowment
for the Humanities and the Illinois Arts
The city has announced plans to build
some sort of memorial to Daley and has
solicited proposals from several
prominent sculptors and architects -
but apparently none from Chicagoans.
But it is doubtful that many of the
suggestions at the current exhibit
would be acceptable to either the City
Council or the family of Daley, who died
of a heart attack in December 1976 after
more than 21 years in office.
Artist Phyllis Bramson, for example,
has constructed a large Mayor
Memorial Willow. The elaborate
cushion is topped by three stuffed
mayors in the pose of the three Chinese
monkeys who neither saw, heard nor
spoke evil. Other details include a
"bagman's" purse, wolves, rats and a
blood-stained National Guardsman.
Somewhat kinder is JoAnne Carson's
proposal, painstakingly modeled in
miniature. Since Chicago calls itself
"The City that Works," Ms. Carson
reasoned tht Daley should have The
Sarcophagus that Works. It does.
Within the neon-lighted crypt the
mechanized casket lurches perpetually
about to 10 of Daley's favorite Irish jigs.
Record major college field goals of
67 yards were kicked by Russell
Erxleben of Texas and Steve Little of
Arkansas in 1977, a season which also
produced the shortest ever by a colle-
gian, a 16-yarder by Paul Marchese
of Kent State.
Stuart Cohen, on the other hand,
remembered Daley's pride in Chicago's
skyline and submitted architectural
plans for a 20-story Daley bust to be
constructed on an island in Lake
Michigan. Stairs would lead up to a
rotunda within the statue's head so
visitors could see the city through
Daley's own eyes.
Architect Neil Frankel also settled on
a skyline theme, but his lake island
would bear only gigantic mirrors, so'
Chicago could see itself.
An offering entitled The Presumption
by an artist known only as "Tom
Chicago" paid tribute to two Italian
Renaissance paintings - Raphael's
Assumption and Massachio's The
Tribute Money. In the painting, a god-
like Daley ascends from City Hall to
heaven while aldermen on the street
below divide up bribe money.

roles as Fredo, the weak eldest son in
The Godfather Part II, and as the bank-
