MINOR LARCENY ON A MAJOR SCALE: Manager Gerald Hoag of the Michigan Theater "tested" patrons' resistance to temptation in a light sort of way with a lobby display for a coming movie, "The Birds." He inserted an unlighted cigaret in the beak of the pasteboard bird and instructed an assistant to replace it as needed. Passersby on their way to the balcony helped themselves to 2 1/2 packs' worth in an afternoon.
