The production, which stars Lauren Baoall and was the winner of the Tony Award as the best Broadway musical in 1970, opened its Chicago stand at the Opera House - or tried to. Some 2,280 customers left after the first act and were refunded their money. The gross was $14,000. The sound system went bay-wire. Miss Bacall remained with the sinking ship through the first act, which lasted nearly two hours as the amplifiers spewed static and distortions.

By KEVIN DOYLE LONDON (AP) - Angry members of the BBC television news stafi appear determined to bring to a boil long-simmering arguments about the special responsibilities-if any-of a publicly-owned broadcasting system. Ssveral Members of the staff, alleging political pressure and censorship of news reports on violence in Northern Ireland, have called for a total ban on reporting from Ulster in protest. The publicly-owned BBC, constituted in much the same way as the CBC in Canada, has come under some strong criticism in recent months for its handling of news from Northern Ireland. Critics argue that the corporation may be encouraging violence by interviewing rebel leaders and others who oppose British policy in Ulster. But the immediate cause of the current dispute is a BBC plan to present a lengthy program containing a full-scale debate on the Ulster crisis with an outline of various proposals for producing a settlement. WILL BE QUESTIONED The corporation proposed to subject all those giving views to questioning by a three-man panel made up of a former judge, a former colonial governor and a constitutional lawyer. But a newspaper report of the planned program set off a raging debate with many Conservative backbenchers here and government members in Northern Love letters legally sealed under court agreement COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Love letters which President Warren G. Harding wrote to the wife of a Marion, Ohio department store owner were legally barred today from public view until the year 2014. Under a court agreement reached by Harding's heirs and by defendants in a case that dates back to 1964, original copies of the approximately 250 letters will be VASA LODGE NEW YEAR'S DANCE FRIDAY, DEC. 31-9:00 p.m. SCANDANAVIAN HALL Admission $10.00 Per Couple lunch included Members and Invifed Guests!

The letters will be sealed until July 29, 2014. At that time they and the rights to their publication will become public. Microfilmed copies of the letters will be made available to the Ohio Historical Society under the same terms. Judge Frederick T. Williams of Franklin County Common Pleas Court had issued a temporary retraining order in 1964, halting publication of the letters. That order was issued the day that Dr. George T. Harding III, a nephew of the late president, sued a number of defendants to prevent publication of the letters. The order restrained the New York Times, McGraw-Hill publishers and author Francis Russell from publishing letters Harding wrote to Mrs. Carrie Phillips, wife of a Marion store owner. George Harding is expected to drop his $1 million suit against the defendants as part of the agreement. The original restraining order delayed publication of Russell's book, The Shadow of Blooming Grove, planned for 1965, 100th anniversary of the former President's birth. The book was finally published with blanks left where the letters were to have been quoted. Russell obtained the letters after they were found by a guardian of Mrs. Phillips, who died in 1960, and turned over to the Ohio Historical Society. George Harding maintained In his suit that use of the letters was "outrageous conduct" and "unlawful and intentional theft." Harding, a Republican and tL 29th president, died in 1923. The letters were written between 1909 and 1920. He was chosen for the U.S. Senate in 1915 and nominated for president in 1920. THIS IS OUR SINCERE WISH TO YOU AND YOURS FOR THE lOMING YEAR!

The news-staff members who are threatening revolt-the size of the group is unclear-argue that the BBC should not respond to government or other outside pressure in any way. It should be free to report all news according to "fair journalistic practices with no other restraint." Major newspapers are split over the issue. BBC officials have said that government ministers from both Westminster and Stormont have been invited to take part in the program. The officials added that these ministers have indicated unwillingness to take part and the program might have to be revised or postponed.
