Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - July 15, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa sion By Jay Sharbutt I oday Morton Second P. W. PenningrothjMorA Brown, Undefeated, Rona Barrett Tells All NtW YORK lAPi Uona Barrett, who for 51; has piven insiphts on Hollywood via her daily TV -how, sat down Ihe other day wilh her press agent, her hus- band and this observer to dis- cuss literature. J itt- about her n c w 1 y published autobio- graphy, occurred at a modest restaurant. The middle-aged waitress who served the cof- fee peered at her. then gasped: "You're Rona Bar- aren't you'.' I watch your show on TV all the time. 1 love it." "Why thank smiled Miss Barrett, a iady so petite you could carve a statue of her from a pebble and still have enough left over lo gravel the bottom of a bird caqe. It is sort of hard to ask her about her book because parts of it are luridly alwitter with her fan club days, her fan magazine days and Hollywood inside stuff of the early 1960s. I am not au courant there. Another problem is that the thing also concerns ah, er. hmm, uhh. well, you know, fooling around. II even starts with the attempted seduction of her by an unnamed Holly- wood superman, a married cad. Miss Barrett, whose book also depicts her long drive to overcome a muscular disabili- ty and homeliness, was asked why she wrote it. Part of it. she said in a soft, low voice, was because she always gets letters from star- struck fans and it suddenly struck her they "have tremen- dous misconceptions about what it's like to be a suc- cess." Another reason, she said, was to inspire those who are as she once was ugly, lone- ly and wandering about with a head full of dreams. Miss Barrett, who denied ner video sorties, are on the acid side, insisted it's all ton- gue-in-cheek. She also stoutly denied gossip the era of the Hollywood gossip columnist has gone the way of the dodo. It is alive and well not only in New York and l.os Angeles, she said, but "even more so around the country. You should come with me on a tour and see what happens." While touring San Diego, she said, "it was incredible. People came out in droves. They ask me questions like, 'Does Johnny Carson really love you or hate you'." or 'Why does Frank Sinatra hate or 'Will Sonny and Cher really get back together and what broke them Miss Barrett, who said her .show is seen in 50 cities, said she doesn't go in much these days for stories about love af- fairs of the famous unless the heart conference is held in public. She was asked who spills the beans to her about such matters. ''Usually, i heir best smiled the New York-born Hollywood histori- a n. "Because their best friends love to fink." f was vaguely uneasy dur- ing the interview. A day later. 1 realized why. The waitress' delighted recognition of Miss B. seemed too spontaneous to be the McCoy. So I went back to the restau- rant and asked Ihe waitress if Miss Barrett's press agent had put her up to it for any reason. "Oh, she laughed. "I watch her all Ihe time. She was live on Channel 5 last night, talking about Frank Sinatra's troubles. Boy, she doesn't like him. She said, 'Good for the Australians.'"

'Life Motive' The bank's lawyer claimed the gifts were made with a "life that Walser was a ''ro-, bust man" who was only think- ing of his "children's security." He pointed out that the total! amount of the gifts, was1 but 14 percent of Walser's gross estate. He admitted that the crux of the case is that "we're trying to read someone's mind, and he is dead." The first witness Monday uas Walser's widow, Eleanor, 66. She testified that her husband worked his way from "the bot- tom up" into a profitable moving operation. Although she said she learned of the gifts only after they were On the evening of Aug. 8, made, she felt they were made because her husband had some "extra money." Gives Testimony A daughter, Genelle Wiegand of Dubuque, echoed this belief Under cross-examination, how ever, she admitted telling a gov- ernment lawyer six months ago hat her father said he wantec :o "reduce the estate.'
