Wednesday, Decemb.r J, 1970 THE UTHBRlDGf HERAIB 33 Raquel is her name Cyprus charmed by modern Venus NORMAN GOLDSTEIN NICOSIA (AP) As legend has it, Venus, the goddess of love and beauty, some say the daughter of Jupiter and Dione, sprang from the foam of the sea, wafted along the waves to the Isle of Cyprus, where she was received and attired by the Seasons and then led to the as- sembly of the gods. All were charged by her beauty. Cyprus now has been charmed by a more modern Venus, Raquel Welch, some say the daughter of Hollywood and the press, who springs not from the sea but from the pool of the Cyprus Hilton. Miss Welch was in Cyprus to make a movie, the mundane mythology of this modern world. The occupational oddities of that industry seemed all the more obvious in this anachronis- tic ancient isle in the Mediterra- nean. Here, there is a Greek-Cypriot zone and a Turkish-Cypriot zone. In the middle stands Ra- quel Welch. It was probably more the in- fluence of Mammon, the ancient god of riches, than Venus, that brought Miss Welch to this land. The film, The Beloved, is a co-co-production, p o o 1 i n g the financial resources of a group of Cypriot industralists with Cur- Welch and husband Patrick co-star Richard Johnson's production company, Pageant. This, plus cheap labor costs, and a stun- ning variety of Mediterranean landscapes lured Miss Welch, Johnson, British actor Jack Hawkins and director-screen- writer George Pan Cosmatcs to the sun-drenched isle. The costs are around mil- lion, with Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer owning distribution rights. The film itself is a drastic dpearture for the California- bred beauty, who found fame and fortune through her face and formidable physique, rising from European magazine cov- ers to say little but be seen a lot in 'such early movies as Fantas- tic Voyage and One Million B.C. But The Beloved is a first for her, a straight romantic drama It is a love story of a girl living a dull life in a small Greek vil- lage, when a friend of her hus- band s returns to the town anc she has an affair with him. MAY FOLLOW SOPHIA Nobody's actually saying so but it is obviously hoped this will show Miss Welch has talent as well as topography, that per- haps The Beloved will be to her career what Two Women was to that of Sophia Loren. Miss Welch has kept her pri- vate life relatively private in the goldfish-bowl of Hollywood For years, movie audiences hat no idea she was a Chicago-born California-grown divorcee with two children. She still guards jealously her time with her children anc makes no bones of her dislike of photographers. Now, she says, "I would like to make a good film and be considered an actress, too. After a point, you must do things on a professional just for the be recognized for what you do." She's betting The Beloved, which she describes as a love story with tragic overtones, violence and passion, will be that film. Liver compound relieves pain DETROIT Medical researchers said yesterday they have relieved the pain suffered by victims of sickle cell anemia inherited .blood disease most commonly found in Ne- groes through injections of a compound manufactured by the liver. Dr. Robert W. Nalbandian, who directed the research team, said 25 patients treated with urea, which is found in blood and urine, have showed "relief from pain that has been aston- ishing." Dr. Nalbandian is associate pathologist at Blodgett Memo- rial Hospital in Grand Rapids. Mich., and a U.S. Army medi- cal research consultant. "We know it said Dr. Raymond L. Henry, an asso- ciate professor of physiology and pharmacology at the Wayne State University School of Medi- cine. "In a test he ex- plained, "you can see the cres- cent-shaped sickle red cell of victims change to a doughnut normal shape when urea is added to the intravenous solu- tion." Dr. Nalbandian told reporters that sickle cell anemia is as daedly as any leukemia or can- cer and that most victims die by age 30. BRINGS PAIN Painful attacks are halted within hours after urea sub- stance is administered intrave- nously, the researchers said, and further attacks are pre- vented when it is taken in smaller daily oral doses. More than American blacks are reported to suffer from sickle cell anemia, many of them unknowingly. In East Africa, especially Ghana, as much as 45 per cent of the pop- ulation is beieved to have the disease. GOREN ON BRIDGE BY CHAKLES H. GOREN 1M: Br TM cMcmTrlWM] Neither vulnerable.

A brief examination of the combined holdings revealed that South did not have the transportation re- quired to ruff out his losing diamonds. He decided there- fore to develop North's club suit.

If the hearts are four-one, however, it appears that the declarer must go down to defeat, inasmuch as one defender has more trumps than the dummy. South observed that thwa was a way to cope with an unfavorable heart division provided thai Vtist JiiS tha long trumps. After the king of hearts was cashed, declarer led sraiU heart KiA when' West followed with the nine was played front dummy.
