Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - November 29, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa Television Today By Jay Sharhutt Burtons Churchill NEW YORK (AP) - lActor Richard Burton makes one of his rare television appearances Friday on NBO in ‘"Hie (lathering Storm”, a dramatization of the first volume of Winston Churchill’s history of World war II. Burton, who portrays the late English .statesman in the years immediately preceding the outbreak of war with Nazi Germany, labors mightily to bring to life Churchill’s soul and character. Unfortunately, he and his acting colleagues are saddled with a stiff script! by Colin Morris which, while touching all the key historical points, falls as surprisingly flat as the direction by Herbert Wise. Ifs a disappointment because this (Hkninute program, made in England for showing both by NBC and the British Broadcasting Corporation, had many things going for it — among them adequate financing, a good cast and the opportunity to film and tape the show in the actual locales in which Churchill lived and worked. ♦ * * * Rut all this goes for naught because of the script’s tendency to reduce the major and minor figure of “The Gathering Storm” to onedimensional players in an often harrumphing historical pageant. The crises, from the abdication of King Edward VII in 1936 to the outbreak in war in September 1939 come and go with suitably grave and important sounds from the participants in the drama. And there are brief personal glimpses of Churchill in private life, a man advised by his gentle wife, challenged by his quarrelsome son, Randolph, and counseled by his close friend, Lord Beaver-brook But the only time the special seems to come to life is towards the end, when Churchill, as Britain’s new war time prime minister, makes that famous 1940 speech to Parliament and tells England: “I have nothing to offer but blood, toil, tears and sweat.” * * * It may be that too much was undertaken in this show, that it tried to cover more than it could handle in the 90 minutes allotted it. Or it could be that it too slavishly followed the dialog and sweep of Churchill’s first world war II memoir. Whatever the reason, “The Gathering Storm’’ neither captures the essence of the man nor the atmosphere of the times in which he returned to power and assured himself a lasting place in history-. You might tune in Friday, anyway, if only to compare the ^how with the original work. If you haven’t read the book, the program might interest you in reading it later, a worthwhile project indeed. Incidentally, Saturday will be the 100th anniversary of Churchill’s birth. And you might check your weekend TV listings for a rebroadcast on pubic TV of "Hie Finest Hours”, an excellent British program based on Churchill's complete wartime memoirs (Saturday at 8 on KITN.)

Proxmire: More Hikes in Steel Price Unneeded WASHINGTON (AP) - The vice-chairman of the senate-house economic committee says any further price increase by the steel industry in the near future would be unjustified. \ Senator Proxmire (D-Wis.) said Friday that the industry is in a very strong position to proceed with its expansion plans without any additional price increases in the near future.” Proxmire said the committee staff found that utilization of steelmaking capacity dropped by 1.7 percentage points in the first half of 1974. "While this decline is not large and some of it can be related to deficiencies in raw materials, I find it fc>eculiar that utilization has declined to 94 percent in a period of the most sharply rising steel prices in the nation’s history,” the senator said in a statement. He said the staff estimated the total raw steel capacity of the industry at nearly 163 mil lion tons a year, adding this is almost IO million more tons than generally acknowledged by the industry. Proxmire said announced projects to expand capacity by 18 to 20 million tons a year should be sufficient to meet the demand for steel for the rest of the decade. The staff compiled the data from questionnaires sent to ai major steel companies. Proxmire said the survey marked the first time in 15 years the industry had made capacity and utilization data available to the public. He said all companies cooperated. Opposition to Accord Growing in Coalfields CHARLESTON, W. Va. (AP) — Opponents of the tentative United Mine Workers contract appear to be picking up strength in the coalfields. At a Thanksgiving day meeting in Bellaire, Ohio, Local 2262 President William Yost joined the growing list of low-echelon officials voicing opposition. "The contract doesn’t add up to snuff,” Yost charged. "It’s really a sad day when coal miners get sold down the road.” Specifically, he said the pay scale is too low and there is not enough vacation time. He also criticized UMW 'President Arnold Miller for failing to win increased medical and dental benefits. Rallies Set A protest rally was scheduled for Friday at the union’s District 6 headquarters in Bellaire.

(AP) -It cost a bit more than expected for this Milwaukee suburb to demolish three underground missile silos where Nike rockets were once stored. The Milwaukee suburb purchased the 40-acre site from the General Services Administration and is developing it into home sites. The city had to shell out an additional $3,000 to a contractor hired for $12,000 to destroy the silos. Village engineer Wallace Nienow said the first problem was that the concrete silos were bigger than the army said they were. United Contractors, the firm hired to do the wrecking, discovered that the army flooded each silo with one million gallons of water. It took several weeks of pumping to empty them. Then, Nienow said, a 1,009-pound demolition ball bounced off instead of smashing into the steel-reinforced, concrete silo walls. It took four drops of the wrecking ball to crack the Indian Marchers Win Bones from Pilgrim Museum PLYMOUTH, Mass. (AP)-A group of Indians who staged a peaceful Thanksgiving 'day march on the Pilgrim Museum have won the return of an ancestor’s bones. The bones of a 16-year-old Wampanoag girl were dug up on Cape Cod in 1863 and later were put on display m a show case at the museum in the town where the Mayflower landed in 1620. "We ask you what your feel ings would be if they were the bones of your mother or a relatives on display,” Frank James, co-president of the United Alii ance of Indians of New England, told a rally of about 75 Indians and 150 onlookers before the march on the museum "We want them from the museum,” James said. "Put them back in the sacred buria ground where they belong.” Museum Director L. D. Gel ler gave up the bones after signing a "treaty” with the Indians. They "were in such force, We had no choice but to hand over the bones,” he said. Ceiler said the museum woulc make no effort to get the bones back. The Indians said they would be taken to Barnstable on Cape Cod, for burial. W. Va., to hear an explanation of the accord. The Wheeling meeting is one of several set up to explain what Miller calls "the fattest labor settlement in this decade.” The local officials are then expected to sell the pact to their members. The contract was approved by the union bargaining council Tuesday night. Critics say an earlier rejection the same day indicates the council was pressured into the action. "They (tho council) know what the rank and file are thinking,” said one local official, adding that most miners feel the IO percent pay boost the first year is not enough. Car Caravans Militant miners in southern West Virginia are organizing car caravans to spread their campaign against the settlement because it contains no provisions allowing them to strike over local grievances. Opposition is also developing because of the union efforts to speed ratification. Officials lave said that, if the voting could begin Monday, the union’s 120,000 members could be back on their jobs by the end of next week. Miners are complaining that he Monday vote gives them wily one or two days to study the complicated 126-page agreement The effect, they charge, is to nullify the assurances of democracy Miller vowed! when ie was seeking the union presidency.
