Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - December 23, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa Television Today By Jay Stmrnutt Way1 NEW YORK (AP) The NBC Television network is taking care of Christmas busi- ness Monday with a wonderful 1970 movie musi- cal version of Charles Dic- kens' "A Christmas Be sure to watch it. But also make certain you stay tuned for NBC's following show, "The Navajo a superb one-hour mood piece about the, still-surviving, still- strong traditions and culture of America's largest Indian tribe. The program, written and narrated in a gentle, low-key manner by Robert "Shad" Northshield, is a far cry from those plight-of-the-Indian TV essays which always seem to exhibit more pity than under- standing. This show, while exhibiting its share of compassion for the poverty, disease and al- coholism afflicting the Nava- jos, puts the emphasis on un- derstanding how they survive in a white man's culture. The title of the program sums it up: They survive be- cause of the Navajo a culture in which nothing is compartmentalized, in which shearing a sheep requires just as much "religious" ritual as burying a relative. Their "way" primarily is explained through the lives of a Navajo family and Long Salt, an 85-year-old medicine man. And it is consistently treated with dignity and re- spect, no doubt because the snow is as much a homecom- ing for Northshield as it is a portrait of Navajo life. He did a documentary about the tribe for CBS 20 years ago, and draws on it effective- ly in a series of then-and-now studies with old and new film footage of the people and land he visited in 1954. For instance, he recalls at the start of the show with accompanying black-and- white footage a Navajo baby boy who was dying of in- fant diarrhea, "the main killer of young Navajo Indi- ans." The child was brought to Long Salt, rituals and chants performed and "whatever monster lived within the tiny body, it apparently was slain by Long Salt's Northshield notes as he shows current film of the boy, now a strapping young man. As he points out, the medi- cine man "is tradition and tradition heals. That is the way of these people." It's a theme he keeps driv- ing home, not only in tracing the Navajo history but also in describing, with a quietly con- Irolled anger, the increasing intrusion of while culture on that of the Navajos. He occasionally uses music to underscore his thoughts and footage, and it's a seem- ing paradox: The music is of the white culture gentle Bach airs and, in one wrench- ing then-and-now look at Indi- an alcoholism, a slow version by Stan Getz of "Here's That Rainy Day." But somehow it all works .and greatly complements the understated narration of Northshield, who with his crew spent six weeks with the Navajos filming on Iheir res- ervation near the Arizona- Utah border. They've come up with a show of far more sensitivity than you usually see on the tube. And they deserve many cheers, if not an Emmy award, for the care Ihey put into "The Navajo Television Listings Cedar Ropidi Cedar Rapids Waterloo Otlumwa Island WOC-TV, Davenport La Croat Roche.ler Iowa City Moinei Monday Night 2-Aetion News 7-News, Weather 9-Eyewitness News 3-News, Weather 4-Action News .VNews, Weather 8-News, Weather 10-News, Weather 12-Disneyland Carols 13-Eyewitness News 2-To Tell Truth 7-Sanford and Son 9-Lcl's Make Deal 3-Lel's Make Deol 4-Price Is Right 6-Hollywooa Sqi. 8-Consequences 10-Christmas Child 12-Audubon Wildlife 1 3-5onford and Son 2-Aeiop's Fables 7-Scrooge 9-Rookies 3-Rookies 4-Aesop's Fables 6-Scrooge 8-Aesop's Fables 10-Scrooge 12-Special of Week 13-Scrooge 2-1 Heard Owl Call My Name 4-1 Heard Owl Coll My Name 8-1 Heard Owl Call My Name 9-Astro-Bluebonnet Bowl 3-Astro-Bluebonnet Bowl 2-Medical Center 7-NBC News Special 4-Medical Center 6-NBC News Special 8-Medical Center 10-NBC News Special 12-Three Churches At Christmas 13-NBC News Special 2-Aclion News 7-Newi, Weather 4-Action News 6-News, Weolher 8-News, Weather lOiNews, Weolher 12-Day at Night 13-Eyewitness News 2-CBS Movie- "Michael Kohloas" 7-Tonight 6-Tonight 8-CB5 Movie- "Michael Kohlaas" 10-Tonight 12-David Susikind 13-Tonight 4-Mod Squad 9-Eyewitness News 3-News, Weather 9-America 3-Movie- "Ono Day Befoio Tomorrow" 4-Big Valley 12iOO 2-tail Word 7-Tomorrow 6-Tomorrow 1 0-Tomorrow 3-Tomorrow Tuesday Morning Semester Rftvuo Waterloo 8-Sunrise Semester 13-Not Women Only 2-CBS News 7-Today 4-CBS News 6-Todoy 8-CBS News 10-Todoy 13-Todoy 9-Romper Room 3-Music 2-Capt.

S. Judge Voids ASCS Penalty On Grundy Man U.S. District Judge Edward J. McManus has voided a pen- alty levied by the U.S. depart- ment of agriculture against a Grundy county farmer for al- leged violations of USDA diver- ted acres provisions. Phillip Prosscr of rural Eldora brought suit in federal court against Agriculture Secretary Earl liutz, claiming the proce- dures used to assess the penalty deprived him of due process as guaranteed by the Fifth amend- ment. Prosscr, a tenant for farm owner Mary Smith, participated in 1972 in the feed grain set- aside program administered by the Agriculture Stabilization and Conservation Service. One of the provisions of the program was cattle grazing on the diverted land for the six- month crop season year. Neighbors Report In July of 1972, seven of Prosser's neighbors reported to the Grundy county ASCS that cattle had been on the 27.1-acre tract for three weeks. Based on this petition and an admission by Prosser, the ASCS county committee fined the farmer He appealed this action to state and national committees, and the penalty was subsequent- ly cut in half. In upholding the contentions of Prosser's suit, McManus termed the procedures used by the Grundy county committee "constitutionally insufficient." He noted there was no hearing prior to the assessment of the penalty, and that Prosser was not given access to the evidence used against him and was nol given the opportunity to consult Dial 800 First If You Seek Tax Assistance The Internal Revenue Service reports there has been some confusion in the Cedar Rapids area concerning the IRS' toll- free taxpayer assistance num- ber, 800-362-2600. Since 362 is a telephone prefix common in Cedar Rapids, many callers are reportedly trying to reach the local office by dialing the last seven numbers only. J.T. Rideoulte, IRS district director for Iowa, explained it is necessary to dial the complete 10-digit number to reach the as- sistance office in DCS Moines. The free service replaces the telephone service provided in the past by the Cedar Rapids IRS office. a new wage-price report did not (Continued from Page 1.) service job programs and unem- ployment compensation.

The report said a wage-price policy should focus mainly on industries and unions with sub- stantial market powers. Heller also called for selective price controls, but not a full set of wage-price rules.

White Pleads Innocent At Murder Arraignment John Lee White, 30, formerly of Cedar Kapids, pled innocent Monday in the shooting death last February of Donald Van Steenis. While, serving time al the state penitentiary in Fort Ma- dison on a Tama county larceny conviction, was indicted for murder last week by a Linn county grand jury. Linn District Judge Louis False Save Clerk from Thief's Bullef OMAHA (AP) A clerk at an Omaha supermarket was apparently saved from serious injury Saturday by a set of dentures. Witnesses told police that Nathaniel Hobert. 18, entered the Bedford Market at 42nd and Bedford Saturday after- noon and stuck a .22 pistol into the mouth o" the clerk, Mrs. Evelyn Snudgnios. Wilnesses said he then fired one round into her mouth. The shot struck the dentures and and her only injury was a bruised mouth. Witnesses told officers a customer in the store was carrying a pistol at the time ol the attempted robbery. After the assailant fired the round into the mouth of Mrs. Snodgrass, I h e customer pulled his weapon and fired a number of shots at Holbert. Holbert was reported in serious condition at an Omaha hospital with wounds to the head, abdomen and arm. 38 caliber slug striking the base of his skull. He was reportedly shot several times. The murder weapon has not been recovered. Oral Statements Kopecky revealed that oral statements were made by the defendant while he was incar- cerated last February in the Marshall county jail. The case had been pending since thai time, and Sheriff Walter Grant said last week no new evidence had been un- covered. He said outgoing County Ally. William Faches would not present the case to the grand jury earlier. The sheriff said Kopecky was allowed, after his election in November, to proceed with the case since he will be in charge of prosecution after January. Schultz intended to set trial in the case for Feb. 10, but White's two court-appointed attorneys said their schedules would not allow a trial until early May. "The case seems very in- volved, and I don't think we can be ready before one of Ihe attorneys said.
