Playhouse 90 Fell Short

' NEW YOHK (UPIl "The Kill

night's CBS-TV Playhouse 90 dra
ma, can be summed up in a sin
gle unhappy sentence: It didn't
play well. " '
Writer Ed Hotchncr had some
chunky material on his hands in
his study of the Italian dictator's
final days, but he never really
managed to pull it together Into
a tight dramatic package. It was
an exercise that proceeded in a
halting manner jerking head
at a swift clip for a few minutes,
coughing to a halt, staggering
forward again, only to sputter to
To compound the difficulty,
Hotchner's script contained sever
al touches that bordered embar
rassingly upon soap opera: a. par
tisan couple (good guys) planning
their marriage and future just .be
fore Communist partisans (bad
guys' gun them down; a doomed
partisan boy offering the doomed
Mussolini some bread baked by
his dear old mother; Mussolini
writing a touching letter to his
wife just before his mistress
walks in. -
These were ' cheap emotional
contrivances, the shoddy ironies
of a writer reaching out for the
easy way of juicing a faltering
Buzz Kulik's direction didn't
help matters much either. The
drama had a herky-jerky air
awkward transitions, badly paced
scenes and a complete lack of in
ternal rhythm in the piece as a
whole. The play s opening scene,
in which Mussolini's advisers
traded desperate strategy, was
stupefyingly unreal. So, too, was
the staging of all of the battle
As for the acting, for a Play
house 90 it was curiously disap
pointing. Nicky PersofC as Musso
lini seemed . strangely jiff-center
all evening. The character of
Mussolini was obviously a com
plex one and Persoff never suc
ceeded Jn quite delineating him:
His Mussplini struck me as a
crazy, mixed-up kid.
The rest of the cast ranged
from awkward to adequate with
the exception of Ilka, Windish,
who played Mussolini's mistress.
In a small role, she turned in the
only hard and effective portrait
in the entire piece.

Semi-Retired Persons Able
To Receive Social Security
Social security beneficiaries do
not have to retire completely to re
ceive their monthly checks accord
ing to Vernon A. Welo, district
manager of the La Grande social
security office. Welo noted that
maay people are supplementing
their social security benefits by
doing seasonal or part-time work.
Persons under age 72 may earn
as much as $2080 and still get some
payments. Those whose yearly
earnings are $1200 -or less are
eligible to receive all of their
checks for the year. If the earn
ings for -the year exceed $1200
one check may be withheld for
each $80 (or fraction of $80) over
Welo illustrated this provision of
the retirement test by citing the
beneficiary or worker or retire
ment age (62 for women, 65 for
men) who works steadily and has
earnings for the year of $1800. This
person could still receive 4 checks,
Those who work throughout the
year and earn over $2080 would
lose all their social security checks
for the year. However, they would
be, eligible.-ip receivp payment for
any month they did not work in
their business or earn no more
than $100 in wages.
After the year a worker becomes
age 72, he may earn any amount
and still be entitled to all his so
cial security payments. However,
in the year in which he became
72, he must include all his earn
ings for such year. Thus, if he
earns over $1200 in the year he
reaches age 72, he must lose pay
ment for those months prior to his
72nd birthday. Beginning with the
month of age 72; benefits are pay
able regardless of earnings. '
To avoid owing the Government
money Welo urged those people
with questions about the effect of
earnings on their benefits to con
tact the local social security dis

SALEM IUPI) Payments to
Oregon's poorer school districts
under the basic school support
program will be increased during
1959-60 as a result of an opinion
released Thursday by Attorney
General Robert Y. Thornton.
The attorney general's ruling
was requested by the State De

the House Education Committee

ture failed to take any action on
the basic school support cost ratio

get more under the new computation.
