"We tried to put in five bar stools," said Barbara Callaway, who owns and operates the Cubby Hole with her fiance, Jeff Baker. "But that was too much of a squeeze.

What has happened to The Church? Two weeks after the closing of the workingman's taproom in Juniata Park, chronicled in these pages, something completely different has opened in its stead.

George Wendt and John Ratzenberger, a.k.a. Norm and Cliff of that famous Boston beer garden Cheers, have the go-ahead to sue Host International to keep a couple of robot look-alikes off bar stools in Host's airport bars. The bars are themed around Cheers' cozy patter, and the two actors say the pair of chitchatting, elbow-bending machines suspiciously resemble them. Host, which has a license to be Cheersy, says the robots don't really resemble the men, and just to prove it, Host christened the talking carpet- sweepers "Bob" and "Hank.

From their brief sojourn here, visiting Soviets may conclude that America's West is peopled with cowboys who wear Ralph Lauren, ride saddles that double as bar stools and paint a lot of pictures. Usually off-limits to Soviets, this spectacular mountain valley has unleashed its charms, both natural and designer-label, to impress the delegation accompanying Soviet Foreign Minister Eduard A. Shevardnadze for his meetings today and tomorrow with Secretary of State James A. Baker 3d.
