The rings around David Blissett's collars are gone now. So is the one around his wife's finger. Both are the end results of his proving he could get his clothes whiter than his wife could. To do it he rewashed a portion of her weekly laundry. "The results were simply remarkable," said the London judge, after inspecting the sock David had washed, at right, and the judge promptly ruled that Mrs. Blissett had every reason for ending her nine-year marriage. "He even preserved the gray laundry in a plastic bag."
Not saying cheese
Arrested by West German police who caught her and six other anarchists in possession of a cache of weapons, Margit Schiller was hardly civil to the official mug-shot photographer. First, she refused to face the camera. Then, even while burly guards held her, she made her protest plain. The pictures may not help in identifying Schiller in the future, but they would brighten up a post office wall.
Good advice, too late
Clifford Irving, the bogus biographer of Howard Hughes, had had the benefit of his son's gentle gagging in 1971, the Irving family might still be basking happily in the sunshine on Ibiza. Recently paroled and reunited with his sons (above, Barnaby, 4, and Nedsky, 6) after serving almost one and a half years in federal prison for his hoax, Irving is back to writing, this time about things he knows: a novel on prison life and an article on celibacy. But his problems are hardly over. He still owes over $1 million and, he says, his wife Edith plans to divorce him when she is released from prison in May. Irving, optimistic as ever, adds: "that doesn't mean we won't live together."
Woeful bunny tale
These Playboy Bunnies are, well, hopping mad. At an arbitration session, they charged that the New York Playboy Club is denying senior bunnies their contract rights in vacations and working conditions, and that for union activism 10 bunnies have been fired. Playboy contends it's a "seniority" problem all right, but of a different sort, says the ousted women, all over 28, had aged to the point where they'd lost their "bunny image."
Las Vegas bust
Linda (Deep Throat) Lovelace, accustomed to harassment by film censors, is now facing a more serious charge in Las Vegas: drug possession. Arrested last month, she won a temporary reprieve when the D.A. told the police to provide more evidence. When they did, Lovelace was arraigned on one count of possession of cocaine and released on $7,000 bond. If convicted she faces up to six years in prison.
