Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 9, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 6-THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD Tuttdey, April 9, 1974 Nuns good luck charm for well-known artist By ROBERT MURPHY NEW YORK (AP) -Salva- dor Dali's shoulder-length hair may be streaked with grey, but the senior citizen of surrealism continues to make amiable eccentricity his calling card. He still has a pet ocelot, he still gives money to every nun he sees because "nuns are good luck for Dali" and he still wears the upturned, strand-like moustache that iorms a parenthesis around every word that comes from his mouth. At 69 going on 70, he still is painting a world which exists only in his mind. He recently created a new suite of lith- ographs on Hawaii without go- ing there Dali's Hawaii Suite, commissioned by a Honolulu gallery, has four parts. Ore seems to combine a volcanic eruption and a Polynesian flower The second appears to focus on water in Polynesian life. The third shows two people, presumably Dalhi and his wife, Gala, walking into what a spokesman for the artist calls "an infinity of beauty." The fourth part is still under wraps. Dali. like many artists, re- fuses to explain the work or express his feelings about it. He just says many of the ideas in it came from newspaper ads and travel posters. Most of the material, he adds, came from his own ample imagination. If Dali ever wants to inspect the actual premises, it will take an ocean voyage to get him there. He refuses to fly. When Dali comes to New York each year from his seaside villa in Spain, he comes by sea. Dali claims his creativity began when he covered the high sideboards of his crib with pencil drawings -of animals He studied at the University of Fine Arts in Madrid before attaching himself to the surrealist movement in Paris in 1929. Today he is probably .the best-known artist of that group. Although no one disputes he has the mind of an artist, many surrealists say he has the soul of a businessman. After nearly 50 years of work, Dali is wealthy, but it's anyone's guess how wealthy. HAS HAIRY PROJECT Dali, who prefers to be called the French word for has a number of new projects in the works. One involves his famous moustache. He says he plans to shave part of it off in three years. The place will be Venice and "the people who are having me do it are paying me plenty." How much "plenty" may be and the purpose of the trim, Dali isn't saying. He also is creating a suite of 82 lithographs based on tarot cards. Other projects are film- making, a Dali museum to open in Madrid in May, a three-act play about original sin and a major painting he plans to unveil in London this summer Yet another project, Dali says, is to have himself frozen just before he dies, with the idea of returning at some future time. lashes inflation moves EDMONTON (CP) Former prime minister John Diefenbaker has assailed the federal government for doing nothing to combat inflation. "The Trudeau government has done nothing effective to meet inflation and has not even tried, except to set up a scarcecrow food prices review board that has scared no one but the Canadian he told a dinner meeting. Country music makes it on TV Roy Clark, above, is one of the leading performers of country music on television, where its popularity is growing not only in America but around the world. For years, Clark says, country music "was treated as a redheaded step- child" but now he says "country music's in." Griffin has no-stop rule in taping television show By JERRY BUCK LOS ANGELES (AP) Merv Griffin doesn't mind being caught flat-footed. An inviolate rule on his tele- vision show is that no matter what happens, production doesn't stop after the taping starts. A guest may say some- thing outrageous or even walk out, as Richard Nixon once did Trans-Canada Telephone System in-depth communications study to help you put your finger on everyday business problems!

"We never stop the Griffith said. "I don't care if the walls fall down. My orders are to keep the cameras going. Even if I've got egg on my tace, that's equally inter- esting In his desperation days at CBS, battling Johnny Carson in the late-night slot, Griffin switched to "theme" shows and finds them successful. All of the guests for a show talk about the same subject or represent a as biographers of presidents, prosecuting attorneys, defence lawyers, million- aires. Hollywood couples, nutrition and money Occasionally Griffin takes the show out of the studio for location specials. Talk shows are probably TV's last refuge for the faux pas. follies and spontaneity that sparked the earlier days of live television. But the talk shows are down to a precious few in the U.S.: Carson's Tonight show on NBC, Dick Cavett's occasional ABC appearances, and the syndicated shows of Mike Douglas and Merv Griffin. CITIES SEE IT Griffin's 90-mmute show is syndicated by Metromedia to 130 cities. In Los Angeles, New York and Washington it is seen in prime time In most other cities it's on at to 6 p.m., a powerful time period because in the smaller cities most workers are home by then. Griffin, 48, is a battle- scarred veteran of late-night TV warfare. CBS threw him into the pits Aug. 29, 1969, against NBC's Carson and ABC's Joey Bishop. A fourth show, David Frost, originated from New York at that time and the four competed for guests. Griffin didn't make a dent in Carson's entrenched position. In 1970, Griffin moved his CBS show to Los Angeles. "I came west with great he recalled, "but I knew I had to do it. We had four shows fighting for guests in New York I thought if no one else was going to move I would. We changed the format to themes because no one else would." Griffin asked to be let out of his CBS contract at the end of 1971. He began his syndicated show for Metromedia in March, 1972. He recently signed a new contract guaranteeing the show through April, 1976. Carson also has brought the Tonight shows to California. STARS FOR "Stars, the box-office appeal, are important to a show. We still pay for an appearance. No one has broken that yet and I hope they never will or we'll be out of business. But equally important is the audience. It's the audience that sparks a guest and spurs him to get up and perform when he doesn't want to Griffin says he has no ground rules for interviewing guests. He believes that when someone agrees to be on the show he has agreed to a probing interview. Nixon walked off Griffin's earlier syndicated show in 1968 when David Susskind, another guest, suggested that many people who voted for Nixon in the 1960 presidential election were religious bigots. Griffin's boyish charm and disarming manner permit him to be provocative without seeming to be grand inquisitor. "Sometimes I shock myself with the questions. We were doing a theme show on millionaires and I suddenly asked Del Webb if he was a Republican. "He said he was, and I asked how much he gave to Mr. Nixon. Webb replied, and I'm sick about it'" Griffin's contract doesn't pay him as much as Carson's reported million, three- year contract with NBC. He won't disclose what he earns. Nevertheless, he is extremely wealthy and runs a burgeoning entertainment related empire. Singer wins top prize at CBC talent festival VANCOUVER (CP) Quebec musicians dominated, but Ingemar Korjus of Toronto won the over- all prize in the Canadian Broadcasting Corp. television network's talent festival finals.
