Jack Palance, long time Hollywood actor died yesterday at his 
home in Montecito, Calif. He was 87. Mr. Palance first gained 
wide notice in 1953, when he electrified movie audiences with 
his serpentine portrayal of the nasty gunfighter Jack Wilson 
in the classic film "Shane," the performance drew an Oscar 
nomination for him for best supporting actor, and it all but 
sealed his fate as a perennial Hollywood bad guy for years. He 
was cast in "City Slickers," a 1991 western comedy about mid-
life crisis. Mr. Palance played Curly, a leather-tough trail 
boss shepherding about some urban greenhorns looking for week-
end adventure. It was a comedy of the sort Mr. Palance had 
always wanted, and the performance brought him his only Oscar, 
in 1992, for best supporting actor.

Gen. Jacob E. Smart, conceived the strategy for the daring 
World War II bombing raid on the oil refineries at Ploesti, 
Romania, and went on to help shape the postwar Air Force, died 
Sunday in Ridgeland, S.C. He was 97. General Smart, came up 
with the idea of having planes fly exceedingly low to bomb the 
tightly defended refineries, which were believed to be pro-
ducing one-third of the fuel oil for the Nazi war machine. He 
became commander of the Fifth Air Force and of United States 
Forces in Japan. President John F. Kennedy, in a speech at the 
Air Force Academy on June 5, 1963, praised General Smart by 
name. The general was then commander in chief of the Pacific 
Air Forces. On May 10, 1944, Colonel Smart was blown out of 
the bomber over Austria, and became a prisoner of war. Only 
he and his bombardier survived. After retiring from the Air 
Force in 1966, General Smart held several high positions at 
the National Aeronautics and Space Administration.



Buddy Kerr, an All-Star shortstop who in the 1940s played 
68 consecutive games without an error, died on Nov. 7 in

York Giants and the Boston Braves and hit .249 in 1,067 
games. He represented the Giants on the All-Star team in 
1948. His errorless streak spanned the 1946-47 seasons and 
was a record at the time.

Former managing editor of The Evening Bulletin of Providence 
died on Sunday in South Kingston. He was 76. While at the 
Associated Press Managing Editors convention in Florida, 
in 1973, Mr. Ungaro asked Nixon if he had accurately reported 
his income taxes. Nixon’s famous declaration came after he had 
gone on to answer a subsequent question about the Watergate 
scandal, Nixon doubled back to Ungaro’s question, saying: 
"People have got to know whether or not their president is a 
crook. Well, I’m not a crook." Nixon later agreed to pay 
hundreds of thousands of dollars in back taxes. Mr. Ungaro 
began working for the Gannett Company at its Westchester 
Rockland Newspapers in 1974 as managing editor. He later 
became vice president and executive editor, vice president 
and general manager, and then president and publisher.
