Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 25, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta 6 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Tumday, February 25, 1975 Has advice for young hopefuls Singer defies pattern for success LOS ANGELES (AP) When young hopefuls ask John Denver how they can get started in the music business, he tells them: "Don't do what anyone else is doing. Because if you do, you're No. Z already." The system worked for John Denver. For a half-dozen years he was singing songs that nobody else was doing and, it was conceivable, that nobody wanted to hear. But he persisted, and three years ago he clicked with his first million-seller, Take Me Home, Country Roads. Now, he says, "I believe I am the biggest record-seller in the world." And he con- tinues to defy the normal patterns for success. Denver came out of the Rockies for his third televi- sion special, which will appear on the ABC network March 10. Denver, born Henry John Deutchendorf in Roswell, N.M., on New Year's Eve, 1943, is a slender man of medium height with hay-stack hair hanging over his round- steel-rimmed glasses. In an interview, he traced his success, which followed hard years of slogging through coffee houses and fairgrounds. "I quit college (Texas Tech) in 1964 because I found that singing and playing the guitar were more enjoyable to me than anything I was doing in he said. He went to Los Angeles, worked as a draftsman until he started getting jobs in coffee houses, changed his name because he realized Deutchendorf wouldn't fit on record labels. Denver got marrjed, joined the Chad Mitchell Trio on its downswing, went through periods "when I was way overdrawn and getting notices to pay today or get out of the apartment." "But we weren't dis- he said. "If you do what works and you enjoy it, then you get a positive feed- back. Then it's working for you." Denver's career began to turn with his song, Leaving on a Jet Plane, although Peter, Paul and Mary made the hit record. Since Country Roads finally did it for him, he has enjoyed seven consecutive gold records. Now he lives in Aspen, Colo., comes here for televi- sion and recording dates, and has resisted suggestions that he record near his home. "One of the reasons I live in Aspen is so I can maintain a perspective on my life." Texas Massacre film 'gruesome' I Ke Pizza J'lace 329 5th Street S., Phone 329-3434 EVERY Wednesday SPAGHETTI DAY at The PIZZA PLACE Spaghetti Meat Sauce 149 1 PER ORDER VANCOUVER (CP) Peo- ple who go to see the Texas Chainsaw Massacre after reading British Columbia provincial film classifier R. W. McDonald's warning deserve what they get, says Mr. McDonald. He said the film, which was the subject of debate last week in the B.C. legislature, is exactly as he described it in the warning he ordered for advertisements: "An ex- tremely gruesome, disgusting pictured" Mr. McDonald said his of- fice hasn't had many com- plaints about the film although several people have asked questions. "It certainly isn't a very good he said. "It's rather cheap." The film became a matter of debate Thursday when B.C. Conservative Leader Scott Wallace asked in the House whether complaints had been received and whether a review of .its classification was being considered. Attorney-general Alex MacDonald replied that he would investigate. He said Sunday he hasn't heard back from an official who is looking into the matter. Meanwhile, two officials of the local theatre where the movie is showing gave contradictory answers when asked about patrons' reac- tions. John Bernard, the theatre manager, said he hasn't heard any complaints about the 'movie. But a man who identified himself as the assistant manager of the theatre, but would not give his name, said the theatre has received about 100 complaints about the film. SALE ANNOUNCED TORONTO (CP) Cana- dian Industries Ltd. (CIL) an- nounced Tuesday the sale of the Canadian assets of McPhar Geophysics Ltd., a wholly-owned CIL subsidiary, to Venturetek International Ltd. of Toronto. Established in 1950, McPhar designs, manufactures, sells and leases geophysical instruments at its main Cana- dian facilities in Don Mills, Ont. MIAMI, Fla. (AP) One of the fathers of television is dis- illusioned with his offspring. He says the best part about it is the on-off switch. Unlike his invention, Dr. Vladimir Zworykin's name is not a household .word. Modern TV combined the ideas and research of many men, but. the Russian-born Zworykin is credited with be- ing the first to recognize that an electronic system, rather than a mechanical one, should be used. It was under Zworykin's direction that the system was perfected at the Datsun 710. More standard features than Nova, Maverick and Valiant combined. If you've been thinking of buying a compact car, you probably have Nova, Maverick and valiant on your list of possibilities. But if you're shopping for the bes't value for your money, you should add one more car to your list: a Datsun 710. Because when you check out standard features, you'll find the Datsun 710 is way out ahead of the other three. Nova, Maverick and Valiant all have standard six cylinder engines. Datsun 710 only has a four cylinder engine, but it's an Overhead Camshaft engine, which uses 43% fewer moving parts, so (here are fewer things to go wrong. Score 3 for them (1 each) and 1 for us. Now, score 1 for the Datsun's economic 4-speed transmission. (They all come with 3-speed transmissions.) Maverick, Nova and Datsun have front disc brakes. Score 2 more for them and 1 for us. Then another for Datsun because ours are power assisted. The Datsun 710 is lighter and more com- pact than they are', and still comes with a much larger battery and alternator than any of them. Score 2 more for us. Datsun 710 comes with carpeting. Nova and Valiant don't, Maverick does. Score 1 for us, and 1 for them. The Datsun corries with whitewalls and wheelcovers. Score 2 more for us. It also comes with'anti-lift wipers, separately fused dual headlights, tinted glass, electric clock, electric defogger and lighter. Score 6 for us. The 710 comas with bucket seats. 1 more for us. The bucket seats recline to 12 different positions, so give us yet another.. If you've been keeping score, that makes 17 for Datsun 710, and 6 for the Maverick, Nova and Valiant combined. Of course; we haven't listed all of their standard features. But then, we haven't listed all of ours either. (The Datsun 710 has another 60 or so we could list.) All we've tried to point out is that before you buy any kind of car, to be absolutely fair to yourself and your money, you should check out a Datsun before you decide. laboratories of Radio Corp. of America. "Television is in its in- he said in a weekend interview. "I don't mean tech- nologically, I mean socially. "Television could be of ter- rific value for human pur- poses. It could help bring world peace. But it is not used that way. There is too much violence, too much crime. "People are hypnotized by it. They look at it all the time. It's contaminating our society." Zworykin, now 85, was a 17- year-old student in Leningrad, Russia, when he began to work with a professor named Boris van Rosing on an "elec- tronic eye" a primitive tele- vision picture tube. The in- vention was patented in 1907 by van Rosing. The holder of more than 120 patents, the scientist-inventor now is retired as a vice-presi- dent of RCA. He spends his winters here, away from the colder climate of Princeton, N.J., where he still works as a consultant at the firm's main headquarters.
