Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - June 3, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa UL The Cedar Rapids Gazette: Mon., June 3, 1974 Television Today By Jay Sharbutt Murky 'Video: The New I'V'ove' NEW YORK (AP) - A miir-kyism is a statement which gives the illusion of something profound. We cite as a prime example the saying. “He who would rule the sand must be brother to the wind.” Monday night, public television is offering a one-hour murkyism called “Video: The New Wave”. Its described as “highly personal statements by a new wave of artists experimenting in the early stage of the video revolution.” It might better be described as “how to study under Ernie Kovacs and flunk the course.” Some 30 pieces of experimental video artwork are on display, many of them electronic abstractions in which shapes are altered, bizarre noises made and eyes tortured. It will be a bonanza for those wont to cry, “How profound! How profound!” when a work of modem fluff has them stumped. For civilians, the show may Simply appear the work of cuckoos. * * * However, both sides will enjoy a brief, funny sequence, taped by San Francisco’s Top Value Television crew, in which CBS’ Roger Mudd refuses to answer TV7 questions at the 1972 GOP national convention. Our knowledgeable guide throughout this tour of television's rarely seen avant garde gallery is an art critic, Brian O’Doherty, whose commentary is not unlike that of an art critic. As one set of images shape up, he advises that the work is “reflective, transcendental, mystical.” As another artist electronically alters a photograph of himself and his father, we’re told the piece “brings into this medium subtleties rarely found in it.” He is right. As we see a block of ice consumed by fire, we learn “the content is not in the result, but in the process.” * * * The show’s high spot arrives with a study of transparent tape on a wood floor. And our guide observes: “The tape as it lies, asks, ‘Where am I’ Removing the tape gives the answer.” After 40 minutes, I asked, “Where am I?” Removing myself gave the answer. I know I shouldn’t knock creative efforts, but I got to thinking about all this and. honest to Pete, the whole thing is plumb ridiculous. * * * There’s a fair eye and ear treat in store for kids on Wednesday afternoon in ABC’s “Crazy Comedy Concert” bf well-known classic music pieces. The show is a combination of mine—by Tim Conway and Ruth Buzzi at a deserted Hollywood Bowl — and cartooned It runs an hour, which youngsters may find a bit long, rewards patience with a wild closing mime—and—animation version of the “1812 Overture”. Even big kids would like it. Alas, the show has canned laughter. ABC should know kids don’t need prompting to laugh. But the overall concept seems sound. It’s a good try, at least, and deserves another chance in the future. Poll Sees Failure Of Nixon Ouster WASHINGTON (UPI) - Sup-port for President Nixon has eroded in the senate, but move to oust him from office now would fail by more than a dozen votes, according to the latest impeachment poll conducted by the Washington Post. The survey, based on personal interviews with senators from both parties, indicated that if the house votes to impeach Nixon he would still retain his high office at the subsequent senate trial by a margin of 12 to 17 votes. However, the Post said, the sentiment toward impeachment has gained some 5 or IO votes since a similar poll was con ducted in February. 110,000-Member Garment Union Begins Walkout NEW YORK (AP) — Picket lines were up Monday at 700 manufacturers of apparel for men and boys across the nation as the first strike against the garment industry in half a century went into full gear. On the picket list of the 110,-000 -member Amalgamated Clothing Workers of America were selected manufacturers and factories in more than IOO towns in 30 states. About 40,000 of the pocket-makers, cutters, button-hole makers and machine operators striking in the wage dispute with the CI o t h i n g Manufacturers Assn. live in the New York City metropolitan area. Other strikers were concentrated in Massachusetts, Illinois, Mississippi, Maryland, Virginia, Ohio, Missouri, Kentucky, Pennsylvania, New Jersey and California. The union is seeking a new abor contract containing higher wages, a cost-of-living clause and fringe benefits. Details of the demands were not announced. The employes earn an average of $3.50 an hour. Despite the aid of federal mediators, talks between the manufacturers and the union collapsed Saturday and the strike was called. No new negotiations were scheduled. The strike is not expected to cause any immediate clothing shortages. But the workers, most of whom have weekends off, walked out on the first real business day of a week in which the garment industry planned to build up production for the fall fashion season. Honor-MedaI Winner Keeps Pot Garden as Symbol of Freedom FAIRFIELD, 111. (AP) -Kenneth Kays is not your gov-ernment-issue hero. His victory garden is full of marijuana, and he is determined to keep it as a symbol of his freedom. Kays, 24, won the Medal of Honor and was honored at the White House for his heroism in Vietnam.    t A draft-resister-turned-medic, Kays lost a leg in battle in May. 1970. but repeatedly crawled past his lines to rescue and treat wounded comrades. Farms Marijuana Today his battleground is a Last U.S. Troops Pull Out of Laos VIENTIANE, Laos (AP) -The U.S. Monday withdrew the last of the 216 military men it sent to Laos 16 months ago, ending a decade of direct military involvement in the Indo-Chinese kingdom’s civil war, diplomatic sources reported. The last of the force of special “military attaches” took a com mercial flight to Bangkok, the sources said. The Laotian peace accords specify that all foreign troops are to be out of the country by June 4. The last of more than 17,000 Thai troops pulled out two weeks ago, but military sources say there is no evidence that North Vietnam has with-drawn any of the estimated 25,000-30,000 troops it has along its supply lines through southeast Laos to the Communist forces in South Vietnam. 1,000-square foot patch near his trailer in this southern Illinois town where he farms the illegal marijuana phmts for his own personal use. With practiced ease, he swings down the rows on his artificial leg hoeing, raking and tilling. A headband secures his long, sun-tinted hair which cascades into his beard. Kays was raised in Fairfield, population 6,000, mid attended Southern Illinois university. He was discharged from the army in 1970, and has been living here on disability checks since then. What he did in Vietnam and what he is doing now are part of the same personal quest for freedom and what is just, even if it conflicts with the law, Kays said. “I’ll finish what I started, a Jesuit McLaughlin Voices Fascination with Power ‘prayer and reflec- Guerillas: Killed Envoys Because Of Nixon Stance KHARTOUM, Sudan (AP) -Eight Palestinian terrorists say they decided to kill U.

When his induction notice came, he left for Canada. But, unsure he was doing the right thing, he reported 31 days late and volunteered to be a medic. The medal he earned has no value of itself, only the experience it represents, and has often been a source of trouble, he said. “I can’t handle being a hero.” he said, adding the accolade brings him unwanted attention and praise. Kays has been arrested twice and convicted once for possession and cultivation of marijuana. He was sentenced to one year of probation. Two weeks after his first arrest. the sheriff discovered Kays was still growing marijuana and arrested him again. Revocation of probation is being sought by the prosecutor.

Police said 29 prisoners were killed, 64 were wounded. Many of them were women prisoners, and some of their children were among the casualties. The camp holds Viet Cong and other political prisoners. Some rockets damaged the runway at Bien Hoa, the biggest tactical air base in South Vietnam, and several napalm bombs were detonated. But no aircraft were damaged, the South Vietnamese military command said.
