Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 9, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 6 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Monday, Decembtr 9, 1974 Brickbats and bouquets for implacable novelist NEW YORK (NEA) Oh, the ennui of it all. The Edwar- dian Room of the Plaza Hotel which is not, alas, what it once was. The orange juice that misses the mark. The questions which, of course, he's been asked before and which, inevitably, he'll be ask- ed again It's no picnic to be Gore Vidal man of letters, man of taste, man of the moment with the publication of Myron, his sequel to Myra Breckinridge, at the same time Burr, his bestselling historical novel, is released in paperback He does his best to maintain the image of sheer im- placability. The caustic overseer of the American scene, sitting well back in his chair, waiting for his eggs and sausage to be served. Why Myron9 Well, he says, Myra simply refused to rest in peace, outrageous piece of work that she is. And, no, it was not written to pay the way for books like Burr, whicfc out- sold Myra three to one in hardcover Certainly the audience is different for each. He smiles devilishly. You wouldn't ex- pect blue haired, middle brow ladies, for instance, to survive the wickedness in Myron.

GORE VIDAL power and ego. Everything ul- timately is. After a time, despite his ef- forts to the contrary, the dis- dain fades from Vidal's face and his deep voice loses its derisive edge. Something human, even warm, surfaces. "I was on a panel show he says in answer to a question about his own reading habits, "and we were all discussing Dostoyevsky's 'The Idiot', when we suddenly realized that none of us had read it He laughs "We'd only read about it. Well, I finally did read it and I don't like Dostoyevsky. But that's what middle age is the 49 year old author says, "getting around to reading the books you have never read It's also a time to continue throwing brickbats and an oc- casional bouquet. Television, at any given moment, is "an awful display of fecundity." "Tennessee Williams is our only important playwright with O'Neill a very poor second." Eleanor Roosevelt, who trained Vidal to lecture effec- tively, was "the last Puritan flower of the aristocracy. Genuinely high minded and never sticky about it." And Richard Nixon, now that he's not here for Vidal to kick around anymore? "Oh he's never going to give he says with gusto. "Ten years from now he's going to be governor of California. He's always a source of such amusement to us, he wouldn't deprive us of that." "According to Time magazine, I'm a Vidal says, "and I suppose that's true. You can divide writers between judges, prosecutors and defendants. We're really all mixtures, with the exception of Mailer who always sees himself as the defendant. I'm much more the judge, handing down decisions. I'm giving the he says with great enjoyment, "and they all better shape up or it counts against them. "I'm an active democrat, small 'd', and an active Socialist, large 'S', and, yes, I would still like to be president because you always think you can do it better. "I have a state of the union lecture which I give to colleges and women's clubs. (I prefer middle aged women for lecturing, incidentally, because they're much sharper than men when it comes to politics and they're far more open to ideas and change) "We're the only country in the world that taxes our citizens to the hilt, gives them nothing in return, and then gets them to return the same people to office again and again That shows a certain kind of genius." Not that a change of incum- bent would matter. The system is so thoroughly cor- rupt, he says, it's beyond hope.' "How can a rich and famous writer complain, Americans say In America, if you've got money, so what if other people are poor? That's the thinking And Vidal despises it.

The movie is being filmed in New York. Austrian steel man freed BUENOS AIRES (AP) Left-wing guerrillas have freed Eric Breuss, the Austrian manager of a steel factory who was kidnapped July 23. Police said they found Breuss, 41, in the northwest city of Cordoba late Friday, bound, gagged and wrapped in a banner of the Marxist People's Revolutionary Army Hours later, Enrique Oscar Roscom, 29, a member of the Revolutionary Communist Party and a student at the University of La Plata, was dragged from his home and shot to death near a park by men said to be members of a right-wing death squad. Rosconi was the 10th leftist murder victim in a week of the death squads. Nearly 170 persons have died in political- ly motivated murders from the right and left in Argentina since July 1 when Isabel Peron succeeded her late husband, Juan Peron, as president. The attack in La Plata, 30 miles from here, came after Mrs. Peron made an impas- sioned appeal for unity, threatening to "apply five turns of the screw each day" to wipe out terrorism. The president proposed a new security law to clamp down on guerrillas Breuss said his release was negotiated after the plant he manages for Argentina's Acindar steel company agreed to union demands for organ- izational rights and to remove federal police from the plant site in the province of Santa Fe He is a long-time Argentine resident but an Austrian citizen.
