PITTSBURGH (AP) Cable television viewers in ihe nearby Steel Valley area were startled by the impromptu airing of sev- eral stag films, police said. However, the movies were cut short early Wednesday when lo- cal police, alerted by angry viewers, arrested the projection- ist, Glenn Kucera, 21, of North Versailles township. Police said Kucera reportedly announced on the air that he was drunk and would show the film, starring two of his friends, until dawn unless someone called the police. Kucera was arraigned on ob- scenity charges. Martin Barch, manager of Valley Cable TV Co., said he fired the projectionist and spent the remainder of the day apol- ogizing to viewers who called to protest. "We have had a few calls from people who wanted more of the same, Barch said. Family Takes In Bird for Holidays ANNA, III.
