Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 11, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Thumfay, February 11, 1971 1HE IETHSF.1DGE UtRAlO 7 Mixed reception for musician Autograph hunters chase veteran Indian actor Egg trader fined, may lose collection LONDON (CP) Pianist Marek Jablonski of Montreal won a mixed reception from critics after his return recital at the Wigmore "An ideal performance of the Barcarolle marked the Polish- bom pianist as a Chopin player of The Daily Telegraph said. The paper found the 30-year- old Jablonski's treatment of Chopin's Grande Polonaise Bril- lante "a virtuoso account." The Tunes shared this view. "Jablonski played nothing but Chopin in the second half of his piano the paper said. "It was certainly his compatriot who brought much of the best out of him." But both The Times and The Telegraph were disappointed FOR DAILY INSPIRATION Dial-A-Thought 327-4581 with Jablonski's interpretation of a Brahms sonata.

The Daily Telegraph found the Brahms "disappointingly out of style." No excitement at Las Vegas betting tables LAS VEGAS, Nev. (AP) Casino hotels along the Las Vegas Strip swayed. Chandeliers moved like pen- dulums. A few lamps crashed to the floor. But nobody in this gam- bling spa got very excited when an earthquake struck Tuesday. Many said they thought it was just another nuclear blast at the Atomic Energy Commission's Ne- vada test site.

George j eaned back in his living room, wearing old black jeans and a western shirt, ran stubby, laborer's fingers through his flowing silver hair and said: "I never thought I'd be chased by autograph hunt- ers and flashing cameras." A stocky, dignified man of 71, he spent most of his life at hard labor with but a linger- ini admiration for perform- ers Now he is peacefully gratified by his sudden and belated fame. He has been named best supporting actor of 1970 by the National Society of Film Critics in New York for his role as a Cheyenne chief in Arthur Perm's Little Big Man is touted as f possible Oscar nominee. Dan George's youthful long- ing died late. He found the acting trade by accident at 65 and enjoyed a merely mtxJest success before wide screen and Hollywood came stampeding at his open door. SHUNS LIMELIGHT The soft-spoken, gentle pa- triarch dodges that stampede when he can. Honorary leader of the Tsa-lall-watte, or Inlet People, he prefers to live through his large family on Reserve No. 3 of the Burrard Indian bar.d, on the lower slopes of Vancouver's North Shore. One of 11 children, he left a mission boarding school at II with the vague equivalent o: Grace 8 and turned logger with no ambitions and a tola innocence about future. In 1920, he went to work as a stevedore. He wrestled lum her and other cargoes in are out of ships for 27 years learned most of what he now knows from the cxpeiernce. He had married a girl of his tribe a year before that, at IP and he and ihs wife Amy cell, brated their 50th wedding an niversary in 1S69.

I never thought I'd get that kind of treatment" SON GOT HIM ROLE He woulnd't have, had it not been for luck and his elder son. Robert George, a mill- vrorker, had a part in the CBC series Cariboo Country. When the white man playing the part of an old Indian fell ill, Robert tote the director he should try an old Indian and promised to produce one. His father got the part, and played in seven chapters of the series, written by North Vancouver author Paul St Pierre. That and subsequent parts came easily to Chief George. He recreated his 01' Antoine in the Disney movie Smith, starring Glenn Ford, after Mr. St. Pierre did a hard-sell job in Hollywood. He also had a bit part in a British film made here, The Trap. It was a marquee photo- graph and his role in Smith that led Arthur Penn to Chief George for the part of Old Lodge Skins. The story, based on a Thomas Berger novel, is that of a. young white bov raised by Indians to survive Custer's Last Stand. BACKS INTEGRATION His younger son, Len, is a full-time actor and plays the role cf an Indian scout in Lit- tle Big Man. Chief George bought him an trailer to live in when Len married last spring and likes to work with Ills son in films "because he takes good care of me." Chief George expects an up- surge of Indian talent and cul- ture as as extension of a growing pride. "I spend a lot of my time going aorund to different schools explaining that inte- gration should he said. "I've made out a speech of about four or five pages that I recite to them. "Prettv near in every school I've" had a standing ovation and so I sing an In- dian song, you know. That's a kind of thanks to them, a thank-you song."
