It's the communist world's In- IGives Hancher I By Lcs Zachcis Rudolf Serkin.. (he Bohemiai born pianist, international! ranked as one of the greatest o this century, appeared in forma recital Thursday night t Handier auditorium in low City. Serkin, age 71, displaye the digital dexterity of a man i his twenties. The repertoire of the eve- ning was devoted to the three Bs, Bach, Brahms and Beeth- oven, with a bit of Schubert tossed in for good measure. Serkin's opening Bach, the "Italian Concerto in F major" was played in the majestic, metronomic style that this writer feels is imperative with accurately interpreted Bach. The three-four andante was idyllic in nature, while the final presto was resolute and determined in attitude. The Schubert "Fantasie in C popularly dubbed as "The Wanderer" was typical period piano festoonery with its declamatory opening statement: and eventually resolving into series of cascading descending arpeggios to lavishly embellish the simple theme. The Brahms pieces for piano, opus 119, the composer's farewell to the in- strument, composition-wise, of- fered Serkin, a great opportunity to wax poetic. I felt he was truly eloquent on the exotic songlike melody that makes up the second movement in E major. The third movement, an inter- mezzo in C major in meter, lived up to its popular but non- 11 rogrammed nickname of The final section, abeled a rhapsody, is an almost march-like development with berkin hammering out a power- 'ul beat. The jumbo work of the eve- ning was the Beethoven "Waldstein" C major sonata. The artist launched the left hand rhythmic pattern in a crisp and precise manner and had the allegro moving ahead at a pace that had: this writer wondering what all the rush was about. By the time Serkin reached the exquisite second- ary theme of the first move- ment, there was no time to caress the charming G sharp to C sharp descending melodic line. Technically speaking, he was a peerless performer on the Miss World 'Dismissed In London By Julie Flint LONDON Marjorie Wallace, Hie 20-year-old Indi- anapolis mode! who last No- vember became the first American to win the Miss World title, was fired by the contest's British organizers Thursday. Her dismissal was unprece- dented in the 22-year history of the competition. The sponsors of the annual beauty extravaganza, Mecca, Ltd., said Miss Wallace had failed to fulfill the basic re- quirements of the title good relations with the media, dis- cipline and a "first-class pub- lic image." Relationships The brief reign of the blond beauty, steady girlfriend of millionaire racing driver Peter Revson, was marred by controversy over her rela- tionships with a number of British pop personalities. These included former soccer star George Best whom she accused of stealing worth of furs and property from her London apartment. She is to appear in court March 27 when Best is ar- raigned. But Mecca chief Eric Mor- ley said the parting had been "friendly." "Marjorie felt it was he said. "I expect her to re- turn home to America now." "Wrong Impression" The company's statement said adverse publicity sur- rounding Miss AVallace risked demeaning the contest and giving "the wrong impression abroad." It said reporters and photo- graphers had been "constant- ly frustrated in their attempts to secure interviews at rea- sonable times and at reason- able notice." :A titleholder once elected, has the option of returning to ler home and comparative obscurity or of accepting the disciplines and conditions at- Telephoto Miss World, 20-year-old Marjorie Wallace of Indianapolis, presented a picture of hap- piness Wednesday but a day later she was stripped of the beauty crown she won in London last November.

Departure "If-she accepts the latter, it is important-that she not only maintains a first-class public image but accepts all engage- m e n t s arranged by her agents, and that she allows no personal involvement from family or friends to interfere with her duties, or to speak on her behalf." Miss Wallace left England suddenly last week to visit Revson in Fort Lauderdalc, Fla. Her .departure followed a row with Best over the alleged theft of a fur coat and other valuables from her London apartment, and with Mecca over a screen kiss in a televi- sion spectacular she filmed with singer Tom Jones. During her absence in Flori- da Revson reportedly told Mecca she wanted to quit, eight months before the end of her reign. But on arrival back in Lon- don Wednesday she said, "I'm not relinquishing my title. I have enjoyed my work and plan to finish the year."
