At least, the ASC American Society of Cinematographers is trying to get that idea across to the public. They think, and their is some justice in their pOMtion. that movie-goers are not sufficiently aware of the contribution ot Cinematographers to motion pictures And so they are launching a big campaign to remedy that situation. Ernest Laszlo, one of Hollywood's great photographers, is currently president of ASC. He believes that more attention should be tocused on the cameramen, because that art is currently in a state of decline. 17 night TV shows cancelled NEW YORK (AP) The CBS and NBC television networks said Friday they have cancelled a total of 17 evening entertainment shows, including the long-running Dean Martin Comedy Hour and Here's Lucy series.

"The current philosophy seems to be that as long as it gets on the screen, it's all right It was haul for us to find five worthy nominees for the cinommography Oscar this en r He thinks that today, with bmlgeUtiN considerations so important to movie-making, the artistic part of films has become largely forgotten. "There's no demand for ERNEST LASZLO quality photography Laszlo says He also believes the public has the wrong idea of just what is good photography. They look at films such as "Ryan's Daughter" and ''Jonathan Livingston Seagull" and admire the beautiful landscapes and leap to the conclusion that those are great jobs of cinematography. Laszlo points out that that's not exactly the way things should be judged. "When you do an exterior he says, "and you can wait for the proper lighting, the shots can be taken by a 10-year-old child. The way to tell quality photography is in an interior picture God isn't there to help. People get carried away with natural beauty. The art comes in when you have to shoot interiors." When you are shooting an interior scene, he says, you have to do the lighting yourself "Every light should have a he says. "But today they toss in a lot of light so people can walk anywhere and be lit It works, but it isn't artistic." The ASC is not a union nor a guild but an educationl, professional and cultural organization. The members there are only 185 active members are invited to join. There are a few TV men who have become members but so far there are no women. One of ASC's most recent activities is an every other month program honoring various pioneer Cinematographers. Fifteen have been saluted so far. "Most of our pioneers are getting along." Laszlo says. "We'd like to honor them while they're still alive." Accidents strand fish on highway EAST HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) It's a far cry from the old fishing hole but one of the best spots to find fish now seems to be on an interstate highway. During a two-day period, pounds of fish, ranging from Alaskan pollack to perch, have been stranded on in two tractor-trailer ac- cidents. A truck carrying pounds of frozen perch from Gloucester, Mass., to Cleve- land hit a car in East Hart- ford and swerved into an em- bankment. The day before, another truck loaded with pounds of Alaskan pollack was stranded for four hours near the same site after a sand truck rammed it and caught fire No injuries were reported in either accident. Wire services seek increase OTTAWA (CP) Canadian National-Canadian Pacific Telecommunications has applied to the Canadian transport commission for permission to increase rates for telegrams and business- communication services, it was announced here. CN-CP has asked for an in- crease of nine per cent for telegrams, night letters, money transfers and press messages sent in Canada This is in addition to the 11-per- cent increase for telegrams sought last November, but not yet approved.

Children's Court of the Stone Children, Search lake in land deal probe LONDON (AP) Police in- vestigating the forgery of Prime Minister Harold Wilson's signature on a letter promoting a land deal sent frogmen Friday to search the lake where property dealer Ronald Milhench's wife was drowned in a car accident. They searched for a firearms register said to have gone down with the car. Milhench is also a licensed firearms dealer and police, for an undisclosed reason, want to account for all Mil- hench's weapons. Mrs Milhench was drowned when a rented car with her husband at the wheel plunged into a lake Feb. 28. Milhench escaped and a coroner's jury decided that his wife's death was an accident. Milhench had taken out a life insurance policy on his wife weeks before the accident. The land deals affair broke with a report in a London newspaper that Milhench had a letter bearing Wilson's forged signature relating to property transactions. There was no suggestion Wilson himself was involved in any land deal or that transactions involving his secretary, Marcia Williams. by Eleanor Cameron.
