her birthday today Her daugh ter Roxie Lynn will celebrate her second birthday Saturday A family dinner will mark the occasion By MARIAN CHRISTY NEW YORK Peter Duchin has an in extinguishable sense of When he heard President Nixons speech about Vietnam and a just peace and then the reaction from the silent he instantly decided to cut a rock album of the same name as a clever little musical spoof on current events The lead song which he has just finished is appro priately titled No One Knows My And he canb help but ana lyze the political overtones of the Nixon speech Its a big push by Nixon to get Wallace Peter a husky 6foot2inch man with a 200pound physique is now scouring Greenwich Village Joints to pick up a group of completely unknown musicians to help him do a musical job on Washington Cover Blank The Silent Majority cover already in the works absolutely blank except for the title now 31 says With all the silence in the world you really dont get a clearcut picture of whats The revealing statement meant in reverse was under scored with the famous Duchin grin and delivered in a tsktsk tone tinged with sar casm Duchin has played the White House for the Ken nedys and Johnsons but has never made it with the Nixons Its not unexpected that 31 yearold son of the illustrious society band leader of the 30s Eddie Duchin has more than a passing interest in political events Peters mother the socially registered Marie Norton died six months after his birth and Peter was reared by the Washingtonbased A v e r e 11 Harrimans The world of mil lionaires soon became his world When Peter could talk and understand the ways of Washington namely at age 7 Mr Harriman had heartto heart talks with his foster son about goingson in diplomatic circles Mrs Harriman a devoted friend of Peters mother took it upon herself to PIANIST Peter Ducbin and bis wife Cherry the former Cheray Zaudereij daughter of a rich New York investor Mary Hatvorth Dads Arrival Drunk Prefaced Miracle DEAR MARY HAWORTH There are two children in my family and I seriously doubt that either of them will ever fall prey to the temptations of alcohol This is due not only to the Influence of church and Sunday School teaching but also to the humiliationssuf fered at home as a sideeffect of their fathers drinking The absolute last straw was on Christmas Eve last year The employes Christmas party at his place of work was preferred by him to gathering with us around the tree at home for carols and the true Christmas story That alone was enough to hurt Dark Night Led To Blessed Day But when Daddy came home both drunk and physically abusive and the local police were called by our the entire episode took on the quality of a nightmare the SNEAKERS by tee Mary details of which are too painful to relate Strangely enough however Christmas Day itself was one of the most blessed ever spent I think the reason was that God wrought one of His never ending miracles in our home The entire night was passed in and the only prayer I could pray was Gceater is He in you than he who is in the world I strongly recommend this commitment to God of all our problem associates I have learned that God is able to transform any relationship any person marvellously I recommend Him as our help for all seasons Many Thanks For Valuable Reminder Dear Many thanks for your valuable reminder that God is the incomparable problemdissolver when we open our heart to His ways of redeeming human nature Your recollections and reflections are very timely with the Christmas holidays hard by bringing the usual discordant accompaniment of pagan revelry known a s Christmas I dont doubt that countless families will have occasion to try your formula for creating peace when the poppa comes weaving home somewhat too full of Christmas cheer on Christmas eve or Christmas dawn Widowers Looking For Genial Widow DEAR MARY HAWORTH I am a widower 68 retired a veteran of World War I My wife passed away nearly three years ago I have two sons grown and on their own whom I seldom see unless I go to visit them which I find a bit tiring just sitting around For the past year I have been trying to find a companionable widow I dont mind if she has children to share my situation and help pass the time I own two bungalows in the suburbs Each has five rooms I live in one of t h e s e properties She could have two rooms to herself and share the kitchen and bath I would be glad to discuss arrangements with any responsible interested person A Proposal Or A Proposition DEAR It isnt clear whether you are offering marriage or a paid job as livein housekeeper or a kept woman proposition some one to be your mistress and caretaker in exchange for room and board if you find the agreeable widow I would think that a com panion worth having in the circumstances would be a person worth marrying Applicants available on other terms would be dubious risks Im afraid bringing more trouble than help to the scene To minimize loneliness get into social action on a reputable circuit Try Golden Age older folks social clubs study groups and recreations projects Your local YMCA or parish house or the public library information center can furnish clues This is the right approach to finding a suitable girl friend Mary Haworlh counsels through her column Write her in core of the Lebanon Daily News see that he practiced the piano regularly Daddy Duchin broken up over his wifes untimely death went on extended tours around the world When he did stop at the posh Harriman household to check up on his1 sons musical heritage hed have a ruler ready to rap Peters knuckles if certain chords went astray But it has all worked in Peters behalf After he got out of the Army his first musical job was at the St Regis for a cool weekly salary of and he stayed there for three years making merry music for customers who said they got deaf at dis cotheques As of today Peter is booked through the end of 1973 and between record sales and television spots he in his own way a millionaire Duchins band isthe highest paid in the United States with the exception of Herb Alpert Second Interest Understandably his second interest is politics althoughhe wont run for public office despite uncasual overtures from the Democratic party Peter stumped the California circuit for Robert Kennedy a personal friend and since the assassination some of the enthusiasm has waned Peter Duchin couldnt care less about fashion or sohe says But his wife the former Cheray Zauderer he calls her daughter of a rich New York investor has introduced him to the finer things of life like Bill Blass shirts and Yves St Laurent ties And now he goes to Lon don once a year to have a tailor based near Saville Row KilgoreFrench whip up his suits andtuxedos And he used to be anticoat even in frigid Manhattan weather until his motherin law took pity on him a John Weitz doublebreasted coat in a color that he calls pur Actually he is explicit on the subject of clothes pre fer funkie Next Sunday Milton Greene the famous fashion photo grapher who snapped Marilyn Monroe in the flesh will meet the Duchins in their brokendown Mt Kisco N liideway which was recently Vandalized Peter plans to wear faded dungarees and an old Tshirt with Cinzano stamped across it His headgear a leather fishing hat that has been smashed around is to quote him smelly and The record is to be called Comin1 Home Baby and the fashion is deliberately underplayed because the idea is that he is coming home baby in rags Despite his outward disdain for Duchin has very good taste Last week he wandered into Saks and bought Cherry a patchwork quilt skirt by Adolfo He has no idea it was a superchic choice but merely thought it looked groovy something like wearing a Peter met Cherry at a deb party in Palm Beach eight years ago and the courtship lasted three years because Peter a swinging bachelor wasnt sure he should or could settle down to love and marriage The Duchins now live in a posh threestory town house on 71st Street near Fifth Avenue and have two children who are showing healthy signs of being musically inclined Jason the

that begged students to demonstrate with him on campus His recol lection After all my hustling only 12 people showed I guess I was ahead of my Duchin who made 14 albums for Decca has now joined Bell records owned by Columbia and the bigwigs have given him carte blanche to try new sounds Duchin wants to do more rock but interpolated with society band sounds And hes got his eyes on the movies He tried acting once with a bit part in The World of Henry but it was a big Hop at least from Peters point of view The egos were too big on the he says And I couldnt stand all those people following me around with a powder Universal Pictures has however signed Peter to do music for films and in the summer of 1970 when hes at his logcabin hideaway in The following marriage li cense returns are amonp

Erode 436 Pershing celebrated her second birth day on Wednesday A family party was held in her honor Puzzler Of The Day We hear a lot about the generation gap but the big puzzler of the day is How can you blame the gap on the generations when up pops Margaret out in front of the parade Miss Mead in case youre not up on things like this is the queen of anthropology the bubbly grandmatype who moves into the Now Genera tion when she lectures on the restlessness of the young One way to close that mys terious gap she says is to let kids smoke pot when they reach 16 Three birthdays later they should be allowed to drink And vote Thats not all She also takes it as a hope Kathy Alnne Fire stone is having a cake and family party today for her fifth birth day She is the daugh ter of Mr and Mrs P M Firestone IGMR Trailer Court Annvilli Jody A ond Joel W Meyer ore ions of Mr and Mrs Joel A Meyer of Palmyra RO 1 Jody was one year old Dee 7 Joel is four ycnrj old today They being feted at a party ful sign that our young people are rebelling all over the place Because she says adults dont know whats going on theyre unprepared to run the modern world And the kids know it Miss Mead thinks leagaliz ing marijuana will reduce friction between the old and the young What seems to bug her most are those tyrants with a cigarette in one hand and a martini in the other who say You cannot to teenagers She even went all the way to Washington to tell this tn a Senate subcommittee on drugs And because she is THE Margaret Mead who probably knows more about primitive culture than almost anybody else around the startled senators listened After all if she knows all that much about primitive behavior whos better quali fied to talk about he younger generation Actually Miss Mead is quite a gal In the as the kids say And she always has been since the age of 24 when she sailed off to the South Seas learned to hula and whipped out a bestseller about adolescence in Samoa Today shes anthropologys superstar professor at Colum bia University and curator emeritus of ethnology at the American Museum of Na tural History Her lectures are witty and sparkling and draw SRO crowds Her books are still bestsellers And since anthropology Is the study of man Professor Mead speaks out on anything that affects pot to pollution to protest The big fuss over pot she says is more dangerous than the drug itself She tried it once years ago and didnt like it But she doesnt think its all that dangerous Most medical men disagree violently with Miss Meads theory One even waxed so poetically wrathful that he called her testimony the dirty deed of Margaret Shes not too happy about the way we parents are rais ing our kids either Says that old wheeze Now when I was a just doesnt cut it any marc Theres a whole new ball game now We are living in a plane tary society with no more Miss Mead says The children realize they have a tremendous repnnsibility for keeping the world from being destroyed They also have to face the fact that the adults dont know whats happen This in her mind is why young folks need to make way for the new with a kind of social bulldozing knocking down all lie expres sions of the past Because to them it is one colossal fail If she keeps talking like Iliis it wont be much longor before our kids disown if they havenl petition Miss Moart to adopt she hasnt
