As to the newsmen, the sources
say even though Kissinger him-
self gave reporters much sensi-

satisfied that their stories always
reflected the view he wanted ex-
pressed.
If the reporters indicated they
had obtained information inde-
pendently or disagreed with ad-
ministration policies, Kissinger
wanted to know about it, the
sources said.

'HAPPY FELLA':
Forget the politics

By DIANE LEVICK
Staging a fine production from
a script with puzzling inconsis-
tencies, the Ann Arbor Civic
Theatre opened an eight-day
run of Frank Loesser's The Most
Happy Fella Wednesday night
at Mendelssohn.
Socio - political analysis of
this play would be out of place.
To enjoy Loesser's musical, you
must have or cultivate a belief
in traditional values of courtship
and marriage.,
SET IN a San Francisco res-
taurant in 1927, the play-which
presents practically its whole
story in song-opens with an un-
married waitress (Constance
Avsharian) discovering a ma)e
customer named Tony has left
a tie pin and love note for her,
addressing her as 'Rosabella"
because he doesn't know her
name.
Letters are exchanged, Rosa-
bella sends Tony her picture, but
what can Tony do? An aging
Italian- ranch owner in Califor-
nia's Napa valley, he deceivingly
sends her a photo of his hand-
some foreman, Joe, instead.
Agreeing to be Tony's mail-order
bride, Rosabella goes out to his
ranch for the wedding.
Meanwhile, Joe was supposed
to have left but decides to stick
around' - -
THE PROBLEMS with the plot
stem from the fact that intrica-
cies pop up quite suddenly and
unbelievably. Loesser seems to
have wanted to create a some-
what fantasized world, but he
introduces elements that confuse
the audience with "heavy" rea-
lism.
AT THE END of The Most
Happy Fella, after Rosabella's il-
legitimate pregnancy by Joe has
been revealed to and condemned
by Tony, we're expected to be-
lieve - in the space of 10 min-
utes_- that sweet Tony changes
his mind, accepts his wife back,
and lives happily ever after

with her because they're "In
Love."
The actors deal very well, how-
ever, with the play's fast but
confusing pace. Ralph Herbert
gives a strong performance as
Tony with a practiced Italian
accent and exuberant, convinc-
ing character. His stage : wife,
Constance Avsharian, handles
her role nearly as well.
Judy Manos as Cleo, Rosa-
bella's waitress friend, gives an
excellent, - obviously enthusiastic
portrayal of a comforting "I
know how it is" - type charac-
ter. Teaming up with Jess
Wrightas Herman, a good-na-
tured schlump who lets himself
be pushed around, Manos deliv-
ers several loose, fun numbers,
which contrast with Robert Arm-
strong's (Joe's) stiff, forced
style.
A DEFINITE plus for the pro-
duction is Makram Joubran's
choreography. The dance scenes
more than adequately create the
festive atmosphere intended,
making good use of the limited
space of the Mendelssohn stage.
Bright, appropriately simple
costuming and simple, versatile
sets complete the production's
high points.
The Most Happy Fella show-
cases a good deal of talent, mak-
up for the shortcomings of the
script. Definitely a treat for
those over 30, the play should
also serve as welcome entertain-
ment to students in the right
frame of mind.

larly to Atty. Gen. John Mitchell
Later in his testimony, Odle
revealed that he had taken home
a file belonging to deputy cam-
paign director Jeb Magruder for
safe keeping hours after the
Watergate break-in. Odle did not
look at the contents.
