Miss Fonda told me, "that Richard is not se- rious aixHit ending the war. be- cause if he he'd let us in. That's what we're all about, stopping tiv war. We've writ- ten to say v.c believe our show would do ,nwe to rr.ise morale out (here than any oth- er Chris-mas gift short of letting the men come home at once.'1 If General (.'reighton Abrams. th?

Out Miss Fon- da and her fellow .stars have no doubt that servicemen will pour out to improvised theatres nearby, as they do in the U.S. By now. both sides have re- fined their techniques of con- frontation. Miss Fonda has been forcibly escorted from three major bases and civil ac- liens have failed to gain her en- try.

It is no secret that the army in Vietnam is already d ru g-rki- clen. dispirited anri in parts As Miss Fonda puts it: "We should be proud of our new breed of soldier. They are not even performing the basic functions of a sol- dier." She denies that the "FTA Show" the loiters arc va- riously interpreted lo mean ''Free' or "F the N inflammatory. "We are not starting anything. We're sim- ply supporting attitudes the soldiers have already to the war and repressive military life. Our political vaudervillc offers an alternative to Boh Hope and his racist gir'io shows. It's based on the phil- osophy of some 70 anti-war newspapers published by GI groups.

Her Hollywood base is a run- down Spanish house decorated with anti-war posters, a far cry from the farm in France where she lived for seven years after marrying director Roger Vadim.
