Stag Film Shocks Cable TV Viewers t WXS* , r HL™ pa & sbc £ ■ Hawks chorus. Cedar chapter of the Society PITTSBURGH <AP> - Cable television viewers in the nearby Steel Valley area were startled by the impromptu airing of several stag films, police said. However, the movies were cut short early Wednesday when local police, alerted by angry viewers, arrested the projectionist, 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 obscenity charges. Martin Barch. manager of Valley Cable TV Co., said he fired the projectionist and spent the remainder of the day apol-1 ogizing to viewers w ho called to protest. “We have had a few| calls from people who wanted more of the same, however," Barch said. Family Takes In Bird for Holidays ANNA, III. (AP) - The Car-roll Loomis family may not have a partridge in a pear tree this Christmas — but they had a starling in their Christmas tree. Two Loomis children spotted the injured starling outside their home a few days before Christmas. They took the bird inside and gave it a home in the Christmas tree. The bird hops down for food and then retires to its perch among the ornaments and tinsel. After the holidays, the family plans to put the tree outside and use it as a bird feeder.
