Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 8, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta g THE LETMBRIDQE HERALD Wednesday, Januory 8, 1975 homeless inter hits part of India Ify HAM SDNDAK ('I' Ciirresponik'nl BOMBAY (Cl'l -Sankaran I'illay. a carpenter from In- dia's sunny state of Kerala, suddenly found himself job- less and homeless in New Delhi. "I could not even go out in search of a job because no one told me North India can be very cold in Pillay, 45. 'said. "Back in Kerala, there is just no winter." He had been living under a road bridge, making a day by doing odd carpentry jobs, liad it not been for a kindly welfare worker, Pillay would almost certainly have frozen to death. Now he is lodged at a night shelter. The government has built nearly two dozen such shelters, in which nearly citizens have found temporary homes, receiving bedding and blankets free of charge. test musk-oxen An experiment of Soviet zoologists, to return 10 Cana- dian musk-oxen to their prehistoric home in Russia's Arctic tundra, is progressing satisfactorily, according to a news release from the Soviet embassy in Canada. The oxen were sent as a gift, approximately three months ago. to the Taimyr Peninsula, which is a unique climatic oasis on the same 75th degree of northern latitude at which they lived in Canada. They have put on weight arid each of the six females and four males now weighs about 200 kilograms. V. A. Zabrodin, director of the Soviet Institute of Agriculture of the Far North, said that at the end of the last glaciation, musk oxen were the full masters of the northland, on a par with mam- moths, woolly rhinoceroses, and reindeer. HOLD ON BAIL Bind over is to hold on bail for trial. f I 1 Pfll_M PALM UAIIIIES LIMITED Officials estimate that at least people in New Delhi may have to be accom- modated in shelters when the winter readies its peak by the end of January. Plans are un- der way to place several hun- dred in vacant government buildings. But the homeless in most In- dian cities are not so lucky. Already, more than 100 have died in a cold wave in Bihar state and 12 deaths are re- ported from the states of Ut- tar Pradesh and Rajasthan. The Bihar government said two years ago that "no one will suffer because of cold." But a plan to build night shel- ters for the poor could not be pushed through because of shortage of funds. Private organizations have come to the rescue of the poor in several winter-bound northern areas. More than have found shelter from the icy winds blowing down from the snow- covered Himalayas in tem- ples, mosques and churches. One temple in Hardwar, 200 miles from New Delhi, has taken in 300 women and chil- dren. A Roman Catholic church in Lucknow has offered to look after 200 homeless citizens during the winter. "We are looking after 600 homeless said Ram Dayal Sharma, trustee of a Hardwar temple. "The funds come from rich people in big cities." Sharma said his winter guests belong to ail religions and include several Western hitchhikers and hippies. Actor planning stage comeback YULBRYNNER Bob Hope to be MC at awards HOLLYWOOD (Renter) Comedian Bob Hope will return as master of ceremonies at the Academy Award presentations next April, it was announced today. Hope had been the Academy's main commen- tator for 14 years until it was decided in 1971 to break the award ceremony up into sec- tions and use a number of masters of ceremonies. This year he will be appear- ing with three other MCs whose names have not yet been announced by the motion picture academy. NEW YORK (AP) The once and future king, Yul Brynner, spoke. And there was no puzzlement. "Nothing is just by chance. I believe in miracles when they are done very deliber- ately." "I reject the sex and shaving your 'head isn't going to make you sexy in any case." "I've never been frustrated at all." He seals each terse avowal with a majestic chuckle. After an absence of 20 years, Brynner is returning to the stage for what he hopes will be another extended ten- ure. In between there have been 36 films "and when they took my measurements for the lat- est, everything was exactly as in 1952-1 still weigh 182 and my coat is still size 46. It's all here." He thumps the mas- sive chest.and shoulders which began developing when he became a circus gymnast at age 12 in Paris. The project wooing him away from movies is Odys- sey, a musical based on the Homeri saga of the Trojan war hero who, just coinciden- tally, also spent 20 years get- ting back to his royal home. "In The King and he noted of his most famous prior role, "I was 30 (when the musical opened) playing a man of 55. Now 1 am 54, play- ing a man of 50."

Open daily 9 a.m. to 9 p.m Phone 327-2044 was written by Eric Segal, lho classics scholar who hit the best-seller jackpot with Love Story. The score is by Mitch of Man of la Mancha. Albert Marre, who directed that sleeper hit about Don Quixote, is directing and his spouse, Joan Diener, enacts steadfast wife Penelope to Brynner's Odysseus. "I insisted on Bryn- ner smoothly squelched any hint of nepotism. The star with the shiny pate reported that a dozen years passed following The King and I, which won him a Broadway Tony and subsequently a Hollywood Oscar, before he received another bid to work on stage. "Then I discovered there was a lack of communication between my agent's East Coast and West Coast offices. When I got busy in films, somebody was telling people I wouldn't even read a theatre script." After the mixup was re- solved. Brynner declined two shows, his negative opinion of their worth being sub- sequently confirmed by events. "I think at first f'm iffy about he said. "You cannot simply jump into a show because you are going to live with it for a long time." Segal visited Brynner's Nor- mandy home last summer. "He read me the whole thing, Marre came by a few days later and gave me the whole picture. A short time after- wards, Roger Stevens arrived and we sat down seriously to consider possibilities." Stevens, the veteran Broad- way producer, planned the project. A 43-week itinerary, which started Dec. 9 in Cleve- land and is weaving from coast to coast, precedes New York arrival next fall. "I wanted an extensive pre- Broaway Brynner said. He has always felt The King and I premiered too soon. ''Once you open and are a hit, a show tends to congeal." As Odysseus, he has five songs, more than in any prior excursion, so a coach arrived in France soon after Stevens "to teach me how to place my voice comfortably for a month we really worked." The role requires a lot of pantomime and the star gave high praise to the show's cho- reographer, Billy Watson, for activating long dormant skills. Although show business hasn't been conspicuously successful recently with such fare, Brynner was .sure "au- diences are always ready for entertainment with truly ro- mantic, marvelous moments like Odyssey." Wife Jacqueline and Mia, their 15-months-old daughter, are going along on Brynner's travel with every- body, life is now, not when I finish a job." Wherever he goes, the star knows people are going to ask inevitable questions and he is ready with replies. On baldness: "I went through two difficult phases. Before I shaved my hair, it was very long like what's fashionable now, but then I was regarded as a weirdo. Then I shaved completely and became a weirdo again and listened to the endless jokes. "I just don't give a hoot. It's the most comfortable way to have it, that's all there is to it." On his sex image: "I never understood that. I think I've .played characters that have been very appealing. Bogy gave me the advice, 'you can't lose if you play a sonofabitch -with a heart of gold.' This is really where it all lies. And then they start talking about sex. I think it is rather dis- placed." As to the sundry myths about his birth and'ancestry: "All those stories were told about me, or attributed to me I came from Brooklyn, from simply never denied anything. I never invented a single story. "I don't want to know ev- erything about anybody. There should be some mystery, something left to people's imagination. If you spell it all out, it becomes a terrible bore." FIRST ACROSS POLE The United States sub- marine Nautilus under Cmdr.
