In the news
DAMASCUS - A senior American official
said yesterday Secretary of State Henry Kis-
singer has worked out all the basics for sepa-
ration of Israeli and Syrian forces on the Go-
lan Heights. But as Kissinger shuttled here to
meet Syrian President Hafez Assad, reporters
were told he could be "hung up for a while
on the details" - mainly the precise number
and kinds of armor that would be permitted
behind the demilitarized zone. Kissinger was
said to be still holding to his deadline for re-
turning home this weekend - with or without
a final settlement. If Kissinger heads home
without a settlement, the official said, Israeli
and Syrian technical experts would be invited
to Washington or Kissinger might send Ameri-
can specialists here.
LONDON -- Ian Ball was ordered placed in
a "secure" mental hospital yesterday after
admitting he planned to kidnap Princess Anne,
demand $7 million in ransom and a pardon
from Queen Elizabeth II, and live like a king
for the rest of his life. Ball, a 26-year-old un-
employed drifter with a history of mental ill-
ness, also pleaded guilty to the attempted
murder of Anne's bodyguard, James Beaton,
and of policeman Michael Hills. They were
two of the four men wounded in the shootout
near the gates of Buckingham Palace on
WASHINGTON - Sen. Edward M. Kennedy
(D-Mass.), said the Democratic - controlled
Congress is ready to join with President Nixon
in enacting a national health insurance plan
this year. Kennedy spoke in a nationwide ra-
dio address in response to a similar talk made
by Nixon Monday. Kennedy said Congress can
and should pass a bill that is better in many
respects than the program of the President.
WASHINGTON -- The Senate Watergate
Committee authorized immunity from prose-
cution in an attempt to get testimony from
Texas lawyer Jake Jacobsen about an alleged
bribe for John Connally, sources said. Jacob-
sen previously has given testimony clearing
Connally of taking $10,000 from Associated
Milk Producers, Inc. Connally has denied tak-
ing the money.
A city resident reports that she spotted a
"flying saucer" Tuesday night while sitting on
her porch near the intersection of Thayer and.
Lawrence. Joy Jedrzejek described the saucer
as white, glowing, and appearing about one
foot long from where she saw it. Jedrzejek
and housemates spotted the alleged saucer at
10:45 p.m., she said.
A good day to check out the Arb. As the dry
air behind the cold front moves in today we'll
have partly sunny skies with highs in the
range 76-i. While the colder unstable air
moves in tonight we'll have variably cloudy
skies with much cooler temperatures 46-51.

This 1971 film from Joseph
Losey will probably he one of
the summer's better flicks. In
fact, if only the original L. P.
Hartley novel had been better,
this could have been one hell of
a great motion picture.
Harold Pinter did an admir-
able job with the screenplay,
given the hollowness of the
Hartley book. Losey's direction
is nothing short of impeccable.
All, however, seems in vain.
Frankly, this almost trite story
of a rich socialite (played by
Julie Christie) who takes ad-
vantage of the adolescent crush
of a 13-year-old boy (Dominic
Guard) just strikes me as a
waste of time and superb talent.

Marat/Sade, a play by Peter
Weiss, is a compelling and sur-
realistic portrayal of the assas-
sination of Jean Marat. The
play is set in an insane asylum,
and the inmates act out the
assassination under the guid-
ance of the chief inmate, the
Marquis de Sade. The filmiza-
tion is directed by Peter Brook.
Weiss is a modern writer with
a good perspective on the
events that made up the French
Revolution, combined with a
great sense of the surreal. This
is an excellent play, with im-
plicit contemporary analogies.
It is hard to transpose s play
on to film, and, comidering the
scope of action that is taking
place in this play, it is inevit-
able that something would be
lost in the translation, this film
is worth seeiug.

The theme of the film is the
American suppression of the
revolution in South America. It
is told through the aczusatins
of the revolutionaries, and t h e
proof that they have that San-
tore is not a businessman, as he
claims, but a C.I.A. agent.
Good performance are given
by all of the actors, including an
excellent portrayal of Santare
