"Sex has, however, re- ceived a lot of bad publicity, or no publicity at all. This seems strange since it is per- haps the most intense and pleasurable of human activi- ties." The 48-page manual, called The Child's Garden of Sex, was designed for supplement- ary use in junior high schools and will be published next month by the non-profit Zeph- yros Educational Exchange. "No regular textbook pub- lisher seemed to want to take on this taboo, said Jane Speiser, co-ordinator of the book.

The play made its debut at Corbett Hall'at the University of Alberta and was praised by the Journal critic Dave Woolner for its dramatic appeal and for the technical skill showed by the author. The major criticism was that the message condem- nation of a society that made mortal sin out of illegitimacy is no longer relevant. The Journal critic said an option is held for production on London's End and predicted at least minor success if the option is picked up.

By DON PILLING Managing Editor Do you remember how it used to be in the music business back in the 1930's and in the early stages of the Se- cond Great Unpleasantness? That was the era of the big bands when Glenn Miller, Benny Goodman, Tommy Dorsey, Duke Ellington, Count Basie and Artie. Shaw, to name or.ly a few from the golden times of the entertainment industry, were household words. That's when Miller magic attracted overflow crowds to all the leading ballrooms in the country, and when Good- man's special kind of swing had them dancing in the aisles at the Paramount Theatre in New York. That's when Ellington and Basie, the most durable of all the big bands and there were literally dozens in those days toured east, west, north and south with their toe tapping, captivating sounds that drew sellout crowds wherever and whenever they appeared, whether it was Toledo or Toronto, Denver or Dallas, Montreal or Milwaukee. That's when Dorsey's trom- bone and Shaw's clarinet per- formed marvellous things with such standards as Moonlight in Vermont, Swanee, Begin the Beguine and Stardust. That was the big band era, a Cahlevision firm hurt by surtax VANCOUVER (CP) Premier Cablevision Ltd. said Wednesday a special surtax in the federal budget resulted in a reduction -in the company's earnings for the three months ending Nov. compared with those of 1973. A company statement said 1974 earnings were up six per cent before income taxes, but were three per cent below the 1973 earnings after taxes. Net earnings to Nov. were and paid 21.9 cents a share, compared with 209 or 22.7 a share for the same period of 1973. The statement said income taxes in the 1974 quarter were million, compared with million in the 1973 quarter.' Figures for the quarter do not include earnings from three companies Premier recently purchased Televi- sion Antenna Erectors, Ltd. and Rente! Ltd., both of Dublin; and Keeble Cable Television Ltd. of Toronto. rather extraordinary time, really, in the lives of millions. SUNDAY CONCERT Some of those musical memories will be rekindled Sunday at the Yates Centre when Lethbridge's Big Band, a unique organization by its very nature, is presented in concert. The big band sound will be the theme, and it will be un- derstandable, of course, if nostalgia creeps into proceedings. That's really what it is all about. It's going to be an afternoon of hearing, again, the music of another era when swing was king and there was a melody to a ballad. There'll be no guitars and no amplifiers, but there will be trumpets, trombones and saxaphones aplenty, and a rhythm section td ignite the spark that every big band re- quires. Lethbridge's Big Band is an interesting blend of musical talent, 16 artists in all, who. range from medical doctors to students, from teachers to salesmen, and from dentists to businessmen. The band was actually born some 10 years ago when a few holdovers from the swing era got together for a session or two, or three. "It was a good way for some of us who the music of the big band era to says trumpeter Dr. Fred Wood, one of the band's original members. INTEREST GREW Interest grew in the local musical colony and soon there was a full compliment of musicians. The Big Band, as it has been known all along, was formed and the decision made to offer its kind of music to the public. The band has played for a variety of dances and balls, been featured on television and in concert for a number of worthy causes. The band and its music has been widely accepted, by both young and old, throughout Southern, Alberta, southeastern B.C. and even in Montana. Band members were also instrumental in the formation of the Lethbridge Collegiate stage band, which has won national recognition. "Actually we've helped one says Dr. Wood. "There have been times when we needed people to round out the band's personnel and the younger set has done just that." He adds that "we gave them the experience of playing with a big band, their interest in this kind of music grew and it soon passed.through the ranks at the Co'llegiate." As was the case at the out- set, the band still plays strict-' ly for pure enjoyment. Those involved and there have been many in 10 years simply get a lift from getting together and producing a sound only a band of this type and size is capable of producing. BIG HITS Sunday's program will dwell, almost entirely, on some of the big hits when Miller, Goodman, Basie, Ellington and company ruled the musical roost. It'll be a trip down memory lane with such evergreens as Miller's String of Pearls, Ellington's Satin Doll, Basic's One O'clock Jump, Dorsey's I'm Getting Sentimental Over You, Woody Herman's Woodchopper's Ball and more, many more. Downbeat, with that classic swing tune, In The Mood, in the kickoff spot, is two o'clock and tickets are available at Leister's, El Rancho Motor Hotel, the University of Lethbridge and from any band member. Just one thing, however. Dancing in the aisles will be forbidden, in case you are so inclined. paramount Tonite thru Tues. at and p.m. HURRY. FINAL 6 DAYS An all I film...
