One successful plunge leads to another, at least for Actor Robert Morley (below, posed up to his neck in the Adriatic). Morley's horse came in at Brighton recently, and he explained how he decided to spend the money: "It was called Greek Skittle, so I thought we had better come to Greece." Fine, but if that is to be Morley's system for disposing of his future winnings he would do well to keep his money off another horse by the name of Old Bailey.

It got a little difficult to tell who was using whom to promote what last week in Anaheim, Calif. Sir Edmund Hillary (below) was in town to publicize New Zealand as a tourist attraction. He visited Disneyland where they tried to get the conqueror of Everest to climb the Disneyland Matterhorn to publicize the resort as a tourist attraction. Sir Edmund refused to clamber up the 147�-foot mountain, but he took the bobsled ride down ("Personally, I'd rather climb Mt. Everest," Mrs. Hillary observed), and his two sons obligingly scaled the unnatural wonder 10 times for the benefit of the Anaheim tourist trade. Presumably the New Zealand tourist trade will somehow benefit as well, now that it has been established that New Zealand and Disneyland, like Everest, Are There.
