The Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 3, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 6 LETHBRIOQE HERALD Thursday, January 3, Ex-Soviet Marshal dies MOSCOW (Reuter) Mar- shal Konstantin Vershinin, former commander-in-chief of the Soviet air force and one of the survivors of the Stalinist military purges of the 1930s, has died here at the age of 73, it was officially an- nounced Wednesday. From a peasant family, he served in the ranks of the Red army during the Russian civil war which followed the 1917 Bolshevik revolution. After- wards he helped in the forma- tion of the country's young air force. During the late 1930s he held several important command posts but although thousands of his military colleagues were arrested after the claim- ed discovery of a plot by senior officers to overthrow the Soviet state, the purges passed him by. During the Second World War he commanded Soviet air force operations on the vital southern front in the early stages of the conflict. Later, he was in charge of offensive operations as the German forces retreated from the Soviet Union> and Eastern Europe.

O'Connor stars in the TV series "All in the Film parallels Monroe legend MEAGHERS )DMnTR By BRUCE RUSSELL HOLLYWOOD (Reuter) A Hollywood film company is rushing out a film which closely parallels the legend of Marilyn Monroe. The film contains a thinly- disguised account of her marriages with baseball star Joe DiMaggio, author Arthur Miller and her alleged affair with the late United States Senator Robert Kennedy, as related in the latest biography of her by Pulitzer Prize- winning author Norman Mailer. The film The Sex Symbol, casting singer Connie Stevens as Miss Monroe, follows the success of Mailer's controver- sial book entitled Marilyn. Mailer has come under heavy fire for the amount of speculation contained in the book, and he has been sued by the author of another Marilyn Monroe biography for alleged unauthorized use of copyrighted material. The Hollywood Women's Press Club, made up of woman reporters and publicists, reinstated its Sour Apple award in December to give it to Mailer. AUTHOR CRITICIZED The women bitterly criticiz- ed him for "cashing in on the tragedy of a great star with a cruelly unauthentic version of her life story." Replying personally to the lawsuit filed by an earlier biographer, Maurice Zolotow, Mailer said there had been adequate attribution to Zolotow in his book and pay- ment had been made for use of copyrighted material. A settlement is being sought out of court. The producers of The Sex Symbol have attempted to head off both lawsuits and charges of sensationalizing by making their film with fic- titious names. But Miss Stevens, looking uncannily like Marilyn with a cloud of curly blonde hair, pointed nose and chin and large round golden earrings, makes no effort to hide who she is playing. Miss Monroe became one of Hollywood's great tragic legends in 1962 when she end- ed a stormy career by taking an overdose of barbiturates. The Sex Symbol is being made as a television film but Miss Stevens says it will possibly be released as a com- mercial movie. Husband No. 1 is played by young actor Bill Smith cast as a professional footballer, and Husband No. 2 by character actor James Olson, playing a painter. The "Robert Kennedy" role has been given to a close ac- quaintance of -Miss Monroe, Don Murray, who played op- posite her in Bus Stop. Murray says he knew Miss Monroe at what was probably the happiest time of her life. "She was behaving herself on the set and working well. It was right before she married Miller and the bloom of love was still there." Of Miss Stevens' portrayal he says: "Connie has got very close indeed to the character. The first day I saw her do a scene I was struck by the fact she had so many mannerisms of the way she moved her body and a lot of her ex- pressions." Murray says he was un- aware when he took the role that the public might presume he was playing Robert Kennedy. Bring your boards and come for the room.

Orchestra leader seeks citizenship .LONDON (AP) After five years as principal'conductor of the London Symphony Orchestra, Andre Previn has applied for British citizenship. The request is in line with a statement he once made: "For personal and artistic reasons, I prefer living here to anywhere else." Husband of American Public hearing requested CALGARY (CP) A peti- tion bearing more than names has been turned over to the Calgary Board of Educa- tion calling for a public meeting on recently-enacted 50 per -cent pay increases for trustees. The increase voted by the trustees made their annual salaries of the highest for board members in Canada and raised a public outcry. The names must be checked for authenticity before being presented formally to the board. If names are found valid, provincial law re- quires the board to call a public meeting within 21 days of the presentation, likely at the next meeting Jan. 8. School board chairman Harald Gunderson says a meeting must be called if the petition passes muster but he predicted the pay increase would stand. Former trustee Bob Dixon, spokesman for the petitioners, said the petition combined with public and media pressure on the board, likely would force trustees into tak- ing some action on the raises. actress Mia Farrow and father of their twin sons, Previn, 44, was born a German citizen in Berlin. He became a naturalized American in 1943, and later gained fame as a writer of musical scores for Hollywood films. MILWAUKEE, Wis. (AP) Kenneth Schermerhorn, conductor of the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra, and Carol Neblett, New York opera soprano, were married New Year's Eve. Miss Neblett gained national attention in 1973 when she sang part of the title role of the opera Thais in the nude during a performance in New Orleans. NEW YORK (AP) Jose- phine Baker rang in her se- cond half-century in show business on New Year's Eve at Broadway's Palace Theatre. Singing sweet, hot and blue through rhinestone encrusted microphones that matched a spangled wardrobe, she did tunes from "Shuffle in which she began her professional career in 1924 at age 18, numbers from later- vintage musicals, and such inevitable reminders of her Parisian reign as Avec, La Vie en Rose and J'ai Deux Amours. Heading into the wings for one costume change, Miss Baker called back: "I'm not going to do a strip tease; I wish I could, I wish I could." When she spotted a pair of opera-glasses pointed at her, the hooded eyes flashed and she cried, "Don't do that, hold on to your illusions." "An Evening With Jo- sephine Baker" continues through the week, after which she heads back to Monaco and her menage of orphans. '1251 3rd AVENUL; SOUTH EVERY THURSDAY 8 p.m. 16 GAMES.
