Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 16, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta The Music Box Septuagenarian singer young at heart By MICHAEL BENNETT Cnnailian Press Slafr Writer Meeting Malvhia Reynolds is like discovering your grand- mother gets stoned. It's a culture shock. Life for 70-year-old women often revolves around petit point and old-age pension cheques. Not for Malvina, the Berke- ley, C a I i f., septuagenarian who composed Little Boxes, a lyrical swipe at faceless sub- urbia. S'he'd rather tilt at bureau- cratic windmills than admit senior citizens can't fight pol- lution, the war in Vietnam and the American dream. Malvina lives and breathes today with the passion of a fresh-faced teen-ager, and on her, phrases such as "blew my "really beautiful" and "kind of plastic" don't sound like affectations of someone afraid of growing old. "In my songs, I try to tell people to listen to the young and what they're telling us about said Mal- vina, who makes the John Birch Society see red and loves every minute of it. "They are confronted with something that no one ever had to face before; the possi- ble end of the world in which we live. "So I tell my audiences, THIS WEEK AT THE K FU1AI MOTOR HOTEL IMPERIAL IOUNGE HARRY BAILEY at the ORGAN TUESDAY thru SATURDAY EMBASSY LOUNGE Direct from the Philippines "ROSALIA PASCUAL" MONDAY thru SATURDAY PIRATES COVE CABARET "THE SPRINGFIELDS" WED., THURS., FRI. t tnutta., CM.

It took her 47 years lo get to the concert stage and, since then, her songs have appeared on Top 40 charts all over the preserve of the under-30 by Judy Collins, Peter Seeger, the Kingston Trio, Glenn Yar- borough, The Seekers, Harry B e I a I o n t e and Marianne Faithful. "I was always somewhat musical and thought of myself as a she said, brush- ing her snow-white hair off her forehead. "I got to know people like Peter S e e g e r and Woody Outline who were collecting folk music in the '40s and eventually I began to write and sing my own songs." When Malvina sings a song like Boraxo, inspired by an interview with Gov. Ronald Reagan of California following the student riots at Berkeley, the lyrics come out as poison darts. Her guitar is her bandoleer and her words her weapons; she kills with an expression. Gene Lees, writing in High Fidelity Magazine, calls her "the sweet-sad-funny chroni- cler of America's dying." "I'm trying to change my country to a direction which I am sure is a better direction than the one it's she said. "And I'm taking it on the chin. I don't know what else a patriot is. It's a person who is willing to sacrifice his well- being for the sake of his coun- try. "If these things can be ef- fected before it's too late, I think there's hope. The young people who are thinking in the direction of peace and a de- fence of the environment are growing up very rapidly and the old fuddy-duddies will soon be gone." OPPOSED TO WAR Personal conviction in the face of conformity is some- thing she grew up with. Gordon Sinclair in Hospital TORONTO (CP) Toronto broadcaster Gordon Sinclair, 70, was admitted to Toronto West- ern Hospital Tuesday night for a series of medical tests. Earlier, he had been admitted to another hospital for what was described as a heart spasm. His condition is reported satisfac- tory. TUESDAY to SATURDAY to a.m. till the New Year Her parents had opposed American involvement in the First World War and on the eve of her high school gradua- tion, school authorities pub- licly embarrassed her by withholding her diploma. That didn't stop her. S'ne enrolled in the Univer- sity of California by special permission, received her Phi Beta Kappa pin in her junior year and a doctorate in Eng- lish in the hungry '30s. Last Aug. 23, the Women's International League for Peace and Freedom and the New Mobilization Committee to End the War in Vietnam invited San Francisco to a champagne buffet to help cel- ebrate Malvina's 70th birth- day. She now limits her tours to four months a year, hitting as many college campuses, churches and women's clubs as she can. And when she speaks to women, she really gives it to them. "Over on Vancouver Island I performed for a group made up for the most part of mid- dle-class women in their 40s who are all hooked, in one way or another, on cleanli- ness. "They didn't care about what they are spewing out to corrupt the environment. So I sang a song called Bloody Neat, which sums up their Lady Macbeth beauty hang- The initial reaction among younger audiences is: "Who's this old But by the time she gets into the second chorus of a song like Do You Todays Showtimes PARAMOUNT Short Subjects "Suppose.
