Bob Schi­ef­fer says he’ll re­tire af­ter 18 years of an­chor­ing “Face the Na­tion” in Jan­uary, when the next pres­i­dent is sworn in. The vet­eran CBS po­lit­i­cal correspond­ent, 70, hopes to keep a desk at the net­work and con­trib­ute oc­ca­sional sto­ries af­ter that.

Nine leg­endary lead­ing ladies do­nated their show­biz ar­ti­facts to the Smith­so­nian this week in an L.A. cer­e­mony. Among the items to be added to the per­ma­nent col­lec­tion: Tippi He­dren’s “The Birds” script, Florence Henderson’s Peo­ple’s Choice Award, An­gela Lans­bury’s “Mame” cos­tume, Julie New­mar’s Cat­woman suit and — wait for it — Carol Chan­ning’s “Hello, Dolly!” dress. Campy enough for you? Also stuff from Es­ther Wil­liams, Phyl­lis Diller, Rose Marie and June Lock­hart.
