The legislature could well to the procedures it used when MLA salaries were last increased when the time arrives to make a study of new raises, he said in an inter- view. The cabinet at that time created a three-man indepen- dent tribunal headed by Mr. Justice Michael O'Byrne to examine the level of MLA and cabinet minister salaries. The legislature accepted the recommendations virtually unchanged. Mr. Hyndman said the procedure "received reasonable acceptance" in dealing with the touchy problem of politicians ex- amining their own salaries. He added, however, that "any mechanism is going to generate some discussion." Alberta MLAs received their last pay raise in 1972, a R.A.HOSACK Cerllded Denial Mechanic DIETRICH DENTURE CLINIC Suite 8 304 5th St. S. Ph. 327-7244 Lethbridge year after the last provincial election. Mr. Hyndman said he doubts any moves would be taken by the legislature until next year. There would be nothing wrong with MLA salaries be- ing discussed during the elec- tion campaign or at the next session of the legislature, the house leader said. The issue of legislators' salaries recently created a furore in Ottawa when it was suddenly disclosed that MPs were looking at a 50-per-cent jump. The package was cut to 33 per cent. Alberta's 75 MLAs get a 000 salary and a ex- pense allowance. Cabinet ministers earn and the premier in addition to their pay as MLAs. Alberta MLA salaries were second highest among the provinces behind Quebec when set in 1972 but Mr.' Hyndman estimated that the province now has slipped to third. He said that when salaries are considered, perhaps a look could be given to the often- discussed need for special travel allowances for MLAs from large ridings or ridings distant from Edmonton. Members have a pass allow- ing them free rail or bus travel but this is often of little use for members trying to get home to their constituents- "GOOD NEWS" MISSION POSSIBLE IN CHRIST EVERY THURSDAY P.M.

CROSS STUDIO Muggins creator dies at 73 FREDERICTON (CP) Mary E. Gran- nan, an author, broad- caster and storyteller whose characters became familiar to children throughout Canada for a quarter of a century, died at her home Friday. She was 73. Miss Grannan was best known for her "Just Mary" story series, published and broadcast by the CBC after she joined the cor- poration in 1939. She played the Just Mary character and also the well-known Maggie Muggins in another series of the day. Miss Grannan began her story broadcasting career with radio sta- tion CFNB Fredericton in 1935. A prolific writer she produced several other programs for the station. She moved back to Fredericton from Toronto in 1962, two years after her retirement. She is survived by a sister. Funeral arrange- ments have not been an- nounced. Salurday, January 4, 1975 THE LETMBRIDGE HERALD 7 Joan Waterfield's Entertainment Eye Airport 75 harbors awful cargo of cliches Show Times PARAMOUNT THEATRE Short Subjects: AIRPORT 75: LAST COMPLETE SHOW: ADULT ENTERTAINMENT PARAMOUNT CINEMA Short Subjects: TAMARIND SEED: LAST COMPLETE SHOW: ADULT ENTERTAINMENT COLLEGE CINEMA MATINEE Short Subjects': DIGBY: ONE COMPLETE SHOW: Short Subjects: RETURN OF DRAGON: LAST COMPLETE SHOW: RESTRICTED ADULT Back a decade or so Arthur Hailey wrote a play called Flight luto Danger for the CBC. Then he wrote the novel Air- port. Which became the movie Airport. Which has become the "inspiration" for Airport 1975. But hold hard; Flight Into Danger had the crew wiped out by ptomaine poisoning. Save the mark (and not to waste a good plot idea) if Air- port 1975 doesn't have the air crew decimated in a head-on crash with a light plane. Who will bring in the plane? Who gives a darn? Airport 1975 is awful, sufficiently so to be the greatest fun. It's what has been termed an "ark movie." Into the im- pending disaster the characters file two by two (two nuns, two stewardesses, two lovers, Mom and over- bright son, Mom and ailing Such a cargo of cliches. This time, however, we've been saved from imminent child- birth, the gallant little old lady, the fink who turns yellow. But there's Myrna Loy downing boilmakers, Gloria Swanson getting in a plug for natural foods, her memoirs, her philosophy (every day is a new Helen Reddy as a singing nun, Linda Blair un- bearably sweet and brave as she heads for a kidney transplant, Karen Black showing true grit as she takes over the controls and Charlton Hestou, those great acting neck muscles of his hidden by a turtle neck sweater, saving the day, the plane, and, of course, his romance with Miss Black. There's a terrible waste of talent: Roy Thinnes, Efrem Zimbalist, Dana Andrews, Ed Nelson are knocked off in short Super funnyman Sid Caesar is never used. And both Larry Storch as a swishy TV newsman and KSL, Salt Lake City should sue. But all ends happily. The passengers stampede out of the landed plane while Heston and Black, after a bit of kiss and cuddle, exit by regular route to face that new day that Swanson promised. Best laugh in the show com- es from Jerry Stiller who sleeps through the entire thing. But don't do likewise or you'll miss that great air traf- fic controller who never mis- ses a stroke of his gum- chewing when advise'of the "drama in the air." For sheer popcorn pleasure, Airport 1975 will be hard to beat this or any season. The exploitation ex- travaganzas are coming hot and heavy this year. Poseidon Two will sail again, Towering Inferno has the like of Paul Newman and Fred Astaire trapped above the city skyline, but the one to watch for is Earthquake. Charlton Heston pops up in this one too and has garnered good reviews. And there's George Kennedy, Ava Gardner, Lome Greene, Genevieve Bujold, Richard Roundtree, Marjoe Gortner, Walter Matthau, Barry Sullivan and Lloyd Nolan. But what is making Earth- quake a real block-buster is a technical gimmick called Sen- surround. Linked to one of the sound tracks, low frequency vibrations appear to the ear to be actual tremors in the movie house. So effective is the gambit that the system has been submitted for a technical award Oscar 'and front-of-house disclaimers warn the squeamish what they may expect. Should Earthquake even- tually come to television you can 'approximate the same effect by turning up the hi-fi bass control with no other program signal present.

Well, there's Murder on the Orient Express, a terrific period evocation of Agatha Christie's suspense story with Albert Finney .as Hercule Poirot and Laurne Bacall, Ingrid Bergman, Sean Connery, John Cielgud and many more greats; The Wicker Man, another British import and winner of the Grand Prize at the Third International Festival of Fan- tasy and Science Films; The Vortex Conspiracy with Michael Caine and Anthony Quinn; Stanley Kubrick's newest, Barry Lyndon; Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau in The Front Page, Dustin Hoffman as Lenny, rock- opera Tommy with Oliver Reed, The Merry Widow (again) but this time with Barbra Streisand and directed by Ingmar Bergman and yet another movie from Alfred Hitchcock, as yet untitled. Meanwhile, if Airport 1975 did nothing else, it allowed its huge audiences here to see the promotion for the American Film Theatre series. Let it be hoped that the exposure will be reflected in the membership. Bates in David Storey's In Celebration; Max- imillian Schell in The Man in the Glass Booth; Topol irt Galileo; Glenda Jackson in The Maids; the original American company with Jac- ques Brel; and directors like FOURTH IN SIZE Great Bear Lake in the Northwest Territories has an area of about square miles and is the largest body of fresh water lying entirely in Canada and fourth in size in North America.
