Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 28, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 8 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Saturday, December 28, 1974 Abuse of horses campaign started BOMBAY (CP Traffic in Bombay's busy Crawford Market area ground to a halt as a young woman engaged in a heated debate with the driver of a horse-drawn vehicle. Sashikala Jain, wife of a millionaire businessman, was carrying on her one-woman crusade against cruelty to horses Bombay has an estimated 700 victorias, one-horse, four- wheeled vehicles. They were so named because the first of them was commissioned by a British official during Queen Victoria's reign.

"My idea is to create public opinion in defence of these she said. "So when I see a driver beating his horse I create a scene and gather a crowd." It works. At least 25 shame- faced drivers have promised Mrs. Jain that they would treat their horses kindly. She is only one of a number of well-organized animal- lovers in a number of Indian cities. A group of wealthy philanth- ropists is active in New Delhi on behalf of bullocks, oxen and monkeys. They go around ani- mal markets to ensure that they are treated humanely. Several leading newspapers have published reports that cattle awaiting sale in markets are not given ade- quate food and water The animal-lovers are par- ticularly worried by the chaotic conditions in the capital's monkey market. A large number of monkeys are exported to Western countries for medical research. Recently, a group of them followed a truck transporting 20 monkeys to the export yard of a merchant, collected a big crowd of sympathizers and threatened to set the animals free if they were not treated properly. The merchant gave a written promise that he would transport monkeys in spacious cages and ensure they were fed.

Famed publicity photo For the movie "The Seven Year Itch" the above photo netted Marilyn Monroe a lot more "exposure" than expected and Lynnda (right) exposes a pretty convincing impression of MM. Probably the most famous pin-up of all time is the "million dollar legs pose of Betty Grable which Lynnda duplicated (centre) with ease. Not to be forgotten is that equally familiar photo of Rita Hayworth in 1941 (right) and Lynnda's resemblance to the actress is remarkable. Miss Kimball's touch of nostalgia was presented by Playmate during a photo session for her appearance in the January issue of Playboy magazine. Lynnda, who studies at the Lee Strasberg Theatre In- stitute m Los Angeles, talked photographers into recreating some of the famous pin- ups of the past. Tin Pan Alley melodies back in Broadway show LYNNDA KIMBALL Summer program expensive OTTAWA (CP) The Op- portunities for Youth (OFY) program will cost the govern- ment million in 1975 to be spent on student summer employment, the manpower department announced Friday. In 1974, million was pumped into the OFY summer program. The program provides work for high school and post-secondary students between the ages of 16 and 25. The department said in a news release that areas with severe job shortages and where the private sector can- not meet student employment needs will be given priority. A total of million to be spent by the government on student employment next summer had been announced earlier this month. Those employed by the OFY program will receive max- imum salaries of a week for high school students and for post-secondary students.

He was of Syrian extraction, had Lebanese nationality, and lived for many years in Egypt where he wrote and sang dozens of romantic and pop- ular songs. He was a member of an influential family, and related to Sultan Pasha al Atrache who led a revolt against French mandate forces in Syria in 1925. Fand el Atrache asked to be buried near his sister Ashahan, an interpreter of Arab songs who counted the late King Farouk of Egypt among her fans. for lyrics, and Ray Henderson for the sweet sounds. The team broke up, the alley vanished, popular rhythms changed, but those melodies lingered on, and now Good News brings a nostalgic compendium of the great trio's dandiest. It opened Mon- day night at Broadway's St. James Theatre. The songs, some from the original Good News of 1927 and others borrowed from other shows and films for which De Sylva, Brown and Henderson provided the music, just might keep audiences coming. How wrong can an enter- tainment go which includes The Best Things in Life Are Free, Button Up Your Over- coat, Lucky in Love, You're the Cream in My Coffee, Var- sity Drag, Together, Good News, Life Is Just a Bowl of Cherries, and Keep Your Sunny Side Up? The slapdash plot, cued to what college life likely was during the 1930s, concerns a gridiron hero who has a terri- ble time passing an astronomy course conducted by the former girl-friend of the team's coach. The final book revision is credited to Carry Marshall who uses a lot of the sort of jokes that killed College Humor magazine. Final credit for the -directing and choreogaphy goes to Michael Kidd, who has supercharged the proceedings with joyous, cartwheeling zest. R.A.
