Transcript Psychiatrist Says Movie Humiliated Her BOSTON (UPI>-A psychiatrist has told a U.S. District Court jury she felt "outrage and humiliation" when she discovered she was the model for a lesbian character in the movie version of Sylvia Plath's novel The Bell Jar. Jane V. Anderson, 55, an assistant professor of psychiatry at Harvard Medical School, said Monday she was defamed by her depiction as Plath's suicidal lesbian lover in the 1979 movie based on the largely autobiographical book. Under questioning by her lawyer- Anderson described the "very painful and upsetting feelings of outrage and humiliation" she felt whe she first viewed the film in a Boston theater. Testifying in the third day of her $6 million federal court suit, Anderson said when she first read the book in 1971, she was shocked. She said it was obvious the Joan Gilling character in the book was based on her, even down to the physical description of her as "horsey." Anderson grew up in Wellesley with Plath, attended the same church and junior high school and was a year ahead of Plath at Smith College. Both were mental patients at the same time at McLean Hospital in Belmont. Among the 14 defendants named in the suit are Ted Hughes, the British poet laureate and Plath's widower, who sold the movie rights. Plath committed suicide in 1963, a month after The Bell Jar was published. Defense lawyers claim the movie and book depict fictional characters in fictional setting. Anderson also denied she ever "exchanged physical affections" with the author or any other woman, as the defense has alleged. She explained a Jan. 23,1950, entry in a diary she kept during her freshman year at Smith. Anderson wrote she and a female roommate were in "bed together for the first time since we've been back." She said it was not a reference to a homosexual liaison, but indicated they had gone to bed in separate beds at the same time. Anderson said she usually stayed up studying later than her roommate and had to be careful not to disturb her when she went to bed.

State District Judge Harlan Martin Wednesday ordered the Carrollton- based United Sciences of America Inc. to discontinue the sale, marketing and distribution of medicines the company sold through an alleged illegal pyramid scheme. Stephen Gardner, assistant attorney general, said that Attorney General Jim Mattox sued USA primarily for violations of federal drug laws. The pyramid scheme is secondary to the suit, but served as "a clean-cut, fast way to shut them down." Gardner said. Telephones Wednesday at USA Inc. were answered by a recorder which told callers that personnel were unavailable and assured them that "this is only a temporary situation." According to the lawsuit, USA Inc. has promoted its products for the cure, treatment and prevention "of a myriad of human diseases and conditions including AIDS, cancer, osteoporosis, heart disease, diabetes, arthritis, excessive weight, colitis, diverticulosis, premenstrual syndrome, acne and dandruff. The lawsuit also accused the company of false advertising. The products were marketed by USA Inc. under the names of Master Formula, Formula Plus, Fiber Energy Bar and Calorie Control Bar. The court order bans USA from "selling, delivering, offering for sale, holding for sale or giving away" of the four named products "or any other product." USA Inc., a one-year-old company, last week filed for reorganization under Chapter 11 of the Federal Bankruptcy Code. It gained national attention in recent months because of endorsements it received from noted scientists and sports personalities. United Sciences has more than 100,000 distributors throughout the country and has been promoted by sports stars including tennis champion Chris Evert-Lloyd, New York Mets catcher Gary Carter, San Francisco 49ers quarterback Joe Montana and Dallas Cowboy Tony Dorsett. ne judge set a court hearing on the civil suit Feb. 6. Similar lawsuits were filed Wednesday against United Sciences Inc. in New York and California. * TTT HENRY'S mffm PHOTO nmn -U- f WE'VE MOVED Now located at 408 Avondale The Montrose Voice Building— Around the corner from our old location OPEN DAILY 9-6 CLOSKI.
