Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 18, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta me LciriDmuuE rnureoay, April 10, 1974 Star in Broadway comedy Fat actress beats weight problem New York Times Service N.EW YORK This is a story about fat, sort of. There is this actress, you see, Lynn Redtrave, who weighed 180 pounds in 1966 when she made a hit film called "Georgy Girl." Ever since, she has been sort of thought as a candidate for the sorority of fat female performers, whose more illustrious members include Totie Fields and "Mama" Cass Elliott. What saved her from membership was the fact that her 4-foot 10-inch frame kept her from resembling 'a complete butterball. Now, however, that thin person inside of her screaming to get out has finally emerged, and she is as thin as a ford model, or a rail, or the proverbial reed. Has been for about five years, size 10. a waistline, cheekbones, the whole skinny bit. But still, Lynn said, most people especially Americans think of her as this fat girl, this "Georgy Director makes changes in festival organization TORONTO (CP) Robin Phillips, Stratford Festival's new artistic director, announced Tuesday broad changes in organization and approach for the theatre's 1975 season. The 32-year-old director who assumed his post in January told a news conference his basic plan is to nourish a "separate and recognizable identity" for each of the theatre's three Festival and Third Stage. Many of the details, including budgets and selection of productions, were to be worked out. Specifically, the Festival's board of governors had decided to appoint a separate group of- associate directors for each of the three stages to oversee production and planning. Each group will consist of a director from a Canadian theatre organization outside Stratford, a designer and an actor. A fourth member at its head will be resident in Strat- ford. The new director, a native of Britain, will head the panel for the Avon stage which will be fortified with a new permanent company to represent "the current generation of young people and the productions." Two touring productions and one or two others for presentation during the Festival's season, including Shakespeare and modern works, will be prepared by the new company. As training ground for Cana- dian talent, the young company "is potentially the most totally practical theatre school on the Mr. Phillips said. William Hutt, Festival associate director since 1970, will head the Festival stage group and Michael Bawtree, appointed associate director last May, will lead the Tliird Stage experimental theatre. Among the changes for the Festival stage will be replace- ment of a permanent on-stage balcony with a mobile one to allow its removal when the Elizabethan stage setting does not match more modern productions. Brief event BARTOW, Ala. (AP) John Cover was just about to get married when the police arrived. So he left his bride-to- be temporarily standing at the altar. Cover, 18, was warded for being absent without leave from the United States Marines. He ran from the church, but was soon overtaken and he requested time for the wedding. So he and Susan Gardner, 18. were married. They had 15 minutes together before he was taken away. Oldtimers engaged in NEFARIOUS and ILLEGAL enterprises? Could this SHOCKING, SCANDALOUS intelligence be true? Yesl It's true... as you'll see in the Playgoers' larcenous comedy.

Good taste in Canada since 1859. and now on top of it all, she is starring in a broadway comedy in which she plays a 200 pound English bookseller. It is called "My Fat and by the time the play is over, Lynn has shed 60 pounds and is her real-life, slymph- like self. It is done, of course, with padded costumes, but in real life, it was much harder. "I tried everything everything, that is, except weight Lynn said the other day in her suite at the Salisbury Hotel, where she is staying with her husband and two children. "I went to a health farm twice, I went to a doctor every day for an injection of a dubious nature, I tried the Mayo clinic diet, Dr. Stillman's diet, Dr. Atkins's diet, the diets where you eat only one thing, like bananas and milk, and not eating at all. "They all worked in their own she added, "but I broke them all. FINDS ANSWER The 31-year-old actress finally hit upon a method that worked, one that has kept her lean since 1970. She eats only once a day, usually in the evening, and the meal generally consists of steak or lamb chops, spinach and an apple. "If I find I really can't get through the she said, "I'll maybe eat the apple, or the meat, or the vegetables. But then I'll hold that item out of my regular evening meal." What motivated one of the acting world's most famous fatties to trim down? Was it because journalists frequently referred to her as or appearing "like a hockey star trying to look like a movie No, she says, it was simply because of the parts she was being offered after "Georgy for which, incidentally, she shared the best actress award from the New York film critics in 1966. "The parts all used to start, 'her fat body waddled down the street behind a baby she said, smiling. "But inside this jolly character girl was a serious actress. I certainly didn't want 'medea' the next time around, but I didn't want to limit myself professionally because of my physical size." WON'T STRAY Lynn smiles at the memory of the goodies she used to cram down her throat. Her tone, however, is that of a person who is confident she will never stray again. "1 used to go on mammoth she recalled. "It wasn't what I ate at meals, but in between, things like cookies, a whole package at a time. Nuts, cashews if I could get them, any sort, really. And chocolates. And hot buttered toast with peanut butter. Still going strong Sonny Terry, almost 60, has been playing harmonica for more than 50 years. He and Brownie McGhee have worked together playing the blues for more than half his life and they still work 11 months of the year touring various cities in the U.S. Ex-counterspy leads quiet life BETHESDA, Md. (AP) Herbert Philbrick, the counterspy famous for leading Three Lives, is spending his fourth life in this quiet Washington suburb. "Who am I asks the 59-year-old Philbrick, then an- swers, "Just an ordinary citi- zen." It is 25 years since Philbrick made a surprise court appear- ance in Boston and testified against 11 alleged Communist conspirators. All were convicted and spent five years in jail. And the public became aware of Philbrick's three lives as citizen, Communist, and FBI counterspy. "It was like a thunderbolt in the courtroom when I walked in, since four of the 11 knew me Philbrick recalled in an interview. But the furore seems far re- moved from the brick colonial house where Philbrick lives with his 31-year-old second wife, Shirley. He now runs a small weekly newsletter and printing shop. Cashing in on the Philbrick name is not his style. In fact, he says he finds the name can be a hindrance. REMAINED ANONYMOUS He says when he talks with people on Capitol Hill to get material for his newsletter, they often ask if he is related to the famous Philbrick. "I always say, 'Yes, I'm re- without explaining any he said. "Otherwise you get into a two-hour discussion about how it was back then. I'd never get any work done." So his phone is unlisted, his business cards carry just his company's name, and even plane tickets are bought under an alias. Eventually, he says, the family will move back to New England. That's where he spent nine years gathering evidence on "youth councils" and other Communist-front groups.
