Each one wrote out real, cashable checks for $1 .OOO to the other’s order. They then exchanged the checks, tore them up simultaneously, and embraced, saying: “Thanks for your thoughtful gift. And next year, let’s make it for $2,000.” Opera star Beverly Sills said of Goddard Lieberson, head of Columbia Records who was honored with the Richard Rodgers award for distinguished service to the performing arts last week: “God plays man so beautifully” After Betty Comden, Adolph Green and Leonard Bernstein entertained, Dick Cavett remarked:    “Not    since Haldeman, Ehrlichman and Mitchell have three people provided so much entertainment. But now I hope it’s their turn to face the music.” * * * Gerald R Ford, who received an award at the annual luncheon of the Women’s National Republican club at the Waldorf, described himself as “an instant vice-president”. California Gov. Ronald Reagan was also honored and foresaw the time when a woman could become President. He added: “But it would be rather awkward to have her husband referred to as the ‘First Lady’.” Salvador Dali, whose monthlong exhibition opened last week at the Knoedler gallery, was once hit by a taxi while he crossed a New York street. He was only slightly injured, and when helped to his feet, insisted on tipping the cab driver. “I am still alive,” he explained. “I am grateful he did not kill me.” Robert Duvall, who costarred in Francis Ford Coppola’s “The Godfather’’, will have an un- Leonard Lyons • Sot.

Shepard, America’s first man in space, who announced he’d soon retire from the navy and from NASA, visited the home of a friend and saw photographs of racing cars on the walls. The man who made two space voyages and drove a golfball on the moon asked his host: “You mean you really race those things? They go so fast — and they’re so dangerous.” Impressionist David Frye makes a return engagement at Jimmy’s next week and explained why he waited only five weeks between appearances: “I wanted to perform again while the people I imitate are still in office.” Flay wright Dale Wassermam saw Josephine Baker perform at Raffles and later asked the 67-year-old star about a skimpy costume she wore on the Paris stage in 1925. “I wouldn’t wear that today," she smiled. “When I tried it on recently to see if it still fit, I felt drafts in places I never did before.” Glynis Johns, star of “A Little Night Music”, told a friend last night: “Please don’t call me on a Sunday.

Asked which people make the best subjects for pictures, he replied: “Usually those who don’t want to he photographed.” Theodore Bikel, who opens at the St. Regis Maisonette next month, recently celebrated his 50th birthday. “I used to bo shy about my age," he said, “and if anyone asked, I’d simply say ‘I’ve survived three revivals of the wide necktie’." * * # Robert Redford dined at Copain with Bill Bradley and Dave DeBusschere, the star forwards of the N. Y. Knicks basketball team last week, after a game which ended late. By way of apology to the maitre d’ for being late, the actor telephoned the maitre d’s girlfriend. Later that night she told her boy friend: “I got a call from Robert Redford tonight! Who needs you?” Leo Fuchs, star of “Here Comes the Groom”, was reunited with his friend, Haze Scott, who’s now performing at Jimmy Weston’s. He told her how surprised he was when his box office manager reported that ticket sales last Monday had been the best since the musical opened. “How can that be?” asked an astonished Fuchs, “because there was no show that day. And why are our ‘best days’ always the days when I’m not there . .?” * ♦ * Irvin Feld, president and producer of the Ringling Brothers and Barnum and Bailey circus, which opens at the end of the month, spoke of the new finale to the opening act, the Samel mixed animals.
