Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 5, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, February S, 1971 THE LFTHBRIDGE HERALD CBC saved Albertan OTTAWA (CP) Only the CBC saved him from hav- ing to churn out radio scripts for the old American Ma Perkins or The Green Hornet radio serials, author W. 0. Mitchell of High River, Alia, confessed licre. It was the fact that he had a chance to get his work such as the Jake and the Kid series on a publicly owned network thai kept him from having to turn to the U.S. to earn enough mon- ey to get his children through school.

One show at No private broadcasting or- ganization in Canada would have been willing to put up the necessary money, the humorist told a workshop at the National Conference on the Law. He offered the comment as the group sounded out feelings on whether regulation ean im- prove the quality of broadcast- ing, a subject that resulted in some brisk comments on the relative merits of Canadian and U.S. television and public and private broadcasting In Canada. Jack Webster, Vancouver broadcaster, said the new con- tent ouota for Canadian music on radio stations similar to the Canadian content rule for TV, had "made a hell of a lot of money for Anne Murray." But had this made radio any .better? His view was that now "you get Canadian garbage in- stead of American garbage." George Bain, columnist for the Toronto Globe and Mail, says it is a false assumption that TV or radio are cultural i media. They were vehicles for advertising, selling "what sslls best." This included the CBC. Keith Davey, Liberal senator who headed the Senate study of the mass media, said this was downgrading the CBC, which had done a good job in public affairs. r LABOR CLUB 1 CORNER 2nd AVE. and 13th ST.

For 12 years Ethel Barrymore, queen of the theatre's royal family, has lain in an unmarked crypt, apart from her brothers John and Lionel. Clara Bow's epitaph recalls her reign as the silent screen's sex goddess: "Hollywood's 'It' Girl." A half-lifesize bronze figure of Al Jolson, in smiling, "Mammy" singing pose, kneels beside a 30-foot marble tower that shelters his sarcophagus. But such oddities and stand- out memorials are exceptions. Most stars rest under simple ep- itaphs. NAMES AM) DATES Names on theatres in Hazing lights are replaced now by mod- est marquees consisting most often of just names and dates cast in bronze or engraved on marble: "Marilyn Monroe, 1926-1962" "Nelson Eddy, June 29, 1901-March 6, 1967" "Clif- ton Webb, 1889-1966" "Nat Cole, 1919-1965" "Hum- phrey de Forest Bogart, Dec. 25, 1899-Jan. 14, 1957." A somber, seven-cemetery survey of 76 resting places, to determine stars' final hillings, was suggested by a reader's query concerning W. C. Fields. The comedian was said to have once quipped that his mar- ker would read, "On the whole, I'd rather be here than in Phila- delphia." Does it? No. A brass plate on marble, in a wall of many niches containing New bank opens in Trinidad MONTREAL (CP) A new bank has commenced opera- tions in Trinidad and Tobago by assuming the assets, liabilities and business of the 16 branches formerly operated by the Royal Bank of Canada, it was an- nounced Friday. The new bank, to be known as the Royal Bank of Trinidad and Tobago Ltd., will have author- ized capital of million (Trin- idad) or about million (Ca- Tlie Canadian bank, which at present holds all (Trinidad) in issued and paid-up shares of the new bank, plans to reduce its interest in the Royal Bank of Trinidad and Tobago in stages so that 51 per cent of that bank's shares' will be owned by residents of Trinidad and Tobago within five years. The Hoyal Bank of Canada has operated branches in Trini- dad and Tobago since 1910. Around-clock radio rejected LONDON (Reuter) Around-the-clock radio, now permitted since the government lifted restrictions on broadcast- ing hours last month, has been firmly rejected by the BBC. Douglas Muggeridge, control- ler of the BBC's light and popu- lar music programs, said there was r.o prospect of 24-hour radio in the foreseeable future. The BBC now ceases broad- casts from 2 to a.m. ashes at Forest Lawn Memorial Park, reads merely, "W. C. Fields Fields apparently meant his remark no more seriously than Dean Martin probably did when quoted as saying his epitaph would be, "I told them I was sick." A Forest Lawn source savs the cemetery doesn't know why En-ol Flynn's grave is un- marked among the graves on its 317 acres in subur- ban Glendale. Interment for Flynn, who died ill 1959 at 50 after a quarter-cen- tury in films, was private at the request of his widow and third wife, actress Patricia Wymore. But a veteran publicist friend of Flynn's says, "My guess is that he just didn't care about any monuments. He'd have said, 'When you live you live, and when you're dead you're dead.

An 82-year-old man col- lapsed in a corridor and died of a heart attack. Forty other per- sons were injured, 14 of them when they jumped from sec- ond-storey windows. None was in serious condition.

Why no inscription? Her son, Samuel Barrymore Colt, explained: "Whoever held the crypt next to the brothers asked some outrageous price we couldn't ho said. And the inscription? "We've been waiting to put something on. I'm glad you re- minded me. I don't think it will be an epitaph, probably just the name." Jolson's monument at Hillside Memorial, a Jewish cemetery, was paid for from his million estate. Floodlit at night, with a waterfall cascad- ing downhill, it is in full view of the nearby, humming San Diego Freeway. SuiTOunding the vault, six marble columns soar 30 feet to a marble roof. A mosaic ceiling inscription, "The Sweet Singer of surrounds mosaic clouds where Moses reads from a scroll. Marilyn Monroe is in an out- door tier of Tennessee pink marble crypts at Westwood j Memorial Park, a hundred trot from the clatter of Wilslnre Boulevard traffic and building construction. Six red roses in the waist-high vault's vase are replaced every other day by a florist on an order from base- ball's Joe DiMaggio, the second of her three husbands. "The first Iwo or three years there were hundreds of visitors a day to her a cemetery official says. "Now maybe 10 to 15 cars a day drive by. Even the famous are slowly forgot- ten." Charter flight plan a farce HAMILTON, Ont. affinity rule that says a person must be a member of a club for six months before embarking on a charter flight is a federal Transport Minister Don Jamieson says. Speaking at a news confer- ence in nearby Burlington, Mr. Jamieson said he would like to get rid of the rule because it's unenforceable. He said the federal govern- ment is "on the brink" or start- ing negotiations with the United States to eliminate the rule and to provide more reasonable rules to govern charter flights.
