The grandson of author James Joyce today cut the Joyce Museum in Dublin out of his will after disputes over the novelist's death mask and the selling of Joyce souvenirs such as Bloomsday soap and ties. Stephen Joyce told Irish Radio from his home in Paris that he objects to "this ludicrous commercial exploitation of my grandfather's name and writing." A death mask of Joyce was the center of an embarrassing dispute last year.

Some 10,000 people will gather today on one of this historic city's main thoroughfares -- long, wide, expansive O'Connell Street -- and sit down to a breakfast that includes a dish of kidneys to be washed down with Guinness. It may seem a strange way to observe a centenary of the city's greatest writer, but the iconoclastic James Joyce, now universally regarded as one of the world's greatest and most innovative novelists, might well have approved.

It said a production of "Exiles" by Ireland's National Theatre had been canceled and that the government would comply with Joyce's request.

James Joyce's grandson has denounced scholars for failing to respect the family's privacy in the course of research that he sees as largely needless. "The Joyce family privacy has been invaded more than that of any other personality this century," Stephen James Joyce recently told 400 experts at the 12th International Joyce Symposium here. "My wife and I will defend that privacy with all our energy and means."

How much would you pay to have an airline's chief executive hoist your carry-on into an overhead bin or fetch you a cold Diet Coke? Frontier Airlines top dog Bryan Bedford did just that working incognito as a flight attendant during his star turn on the TV reality show "Undercover Boss. " In his high-altitude role on sold-out flights between Denver and San Diego , he got to schmooze with passengers ("I was happy to be in the air, happy to be helpful") and suffer their frustration when the flight was late ("I suspect I may have been the reason for the delay")

James JOYCE and Nora Barnacle had two children, Giorgio and Lucia. Giorgio was born on July 27, 1905, Lucia on July 26, 1907. All that most people have heard about Giorgio is that he inherited his father's tenor voice and aspired to become a professional singer. All they know -- or think they know -- about Lucia is that for a while she was in love with Samuel Beckett and that, not necessarily as a consequence of her disappointment with his response, she went mad and died many years later in St.

When Oliver Cromwell, the plain-spoken earthy soldier, agreed to sit for his portrait, he admonished the artist to paint him just as he was, with "pimples, warts and everything." That was 350 years ago. If the Lord Protector had lived in the last days of the 20th Century, warts would have been the least of his problems.

PEOPLE Heston's Rehab Confirmed: Citing overwork and a heavy travel schedule, Charlton Heston's publicist confirmed Monday that the actor and National Rifle Assn. president spent three weeks in an alcohol rehabilitation program last spring after his social drinking got out of hand.
