Folklore studies indicate B.C. folksongs untapped VANCOUVER (CP) When Phil Thomas came to British Columbia from RCAF service in England and India after the Second World War, he was looking for stability. He's still here and his search for the fundamental things of the land and the peo- ple who work it has turned into a study of folklore. "My generation had been fragmented by the Depression and the he said. "We felt rootless. We needed to es- tablish a sense of identity.-" Over the years he has trav- elled thousands of miles in B.C., listening to stories and recording folksongs.

Ami BI-3IM icaNaoa HOTfl "There is a great subterra- nean store ol untapped folk- songs in B.C. But it's elusive. People won't sing their own songs-if the listener's ear isn't willing. They are afraid of a rebuff." Mr. Thomas has a library of taped songs and ballads, many passed on from one generation to the next. But some are pri- vate songs. "One old man was a cowboy in the early homesteading days in Alberta. He made up his own songs when he was out on the range. I persuaded him to sing some of them and his daughter, who was visiting him at the time, said she had never heard them." Mr. Thomas said most of the songs deal with logging, fishing and mining. "One thing the songs have in com- mon is the feeling. The work these men did was in their blood." Some are adaptations of songs from other countries. Others are adapted from one job to another. "Folklore must be orally transmitted to be authentic. It must have the life of the mouth and ear. Songs die if they are written down and passed around on songsheets." Mr, Thomas, a school- teacher, does most of his collecting during the summer holidays. "Usually I am given a name of an old-timer who has been heard to sing strange songs. I visit'him with a recorder and get him talking about the past. "Then I ask him to sing. I ask him to sing a song that has been part of his life. "Usually at first the singer will just sing any folksong he remembers, like Greensleeves .or some other well-known ballad. "So I listen and record it and let him go on. As he gains confidence, he starts to give me the real, authentic music." battle over RICHMOND, Vt. (AP) Inventor Edward LaForce says he plans to pay the Inter- nal Revenue Service the more than he owes but "there's not much I can do at this stage of the game" because federal agents have locked him out of his workshop. LaForce, 60, owes the IRS in federal withholding taxes and social security payments for his 30 employees.

Astaire has been in films since 1933, but not until Mon- day's nominations has the dancer ever been in con- sideration for an Academy Award. "When I first heard the news, I felt he said. "I said Who? What? I couldn't believe The 47th annual nominations offered no real surprises but a few superlatives. Paramount re ceived the most nominations of any studio in Warner brothers trailed with 10. Francis Ford Coppola amassed a record five homi- nations writing, directing and producing The Godfather Part II and for writing and producing The Conversation. Motion Picture Academy rules prevented him from being nominated for directing The Conversation as well as the Godfather. Direc- tors cannot be named for two pictures.
