Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 23, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta 6 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Thursday, January 23, 1975 Gov't aid to promote local books requested VICTORIA (CP) British Columbia publishers have ask- ed provincial cabinet ministers for assistance in promoting local books, David Zhancock, B.C. publishers group vice chairman, said today. He said the ministers ex- pressed interest and would contact the group, which represents 20 B.C. publishers, after the three had discussed the various proposals. Economic Development Minister Gary Lauk was ask- ed to set up a plan, similar to one in Ontario, where publishers can have loans from banks guaranteed by the government and based on 75 per cent of inventory and 75 per cent of accounts receivable. Most B.C. publishers now borrow on per- sonal holdings. The publishers also suggested the government could pick up the tab for half the interest charges, about a year, as in the On- tario plan. Provincial secretary Ernie Hall was asked to establish a provincial version of the Canada council books grants to aid B.C. writers on B.C. topics.

If you are, you may have wondered what's happened to that dashing figure over the years. Richard Webb played that part, and today Webb is a good looking man who doesn't look much older than he did in his space hopping heyday. He's just emerging from 12 lean years and he says it's all the planets' fault that things were lean. "My wife, Florence, who is an he says, "has finally confessed the planets did it. For 12 years they've been just sitting there, doing nothing for me, and making it tough for me to do anything, besides." From '54 to '58, Captain Midnight was one of the biggest things on the air- waves. For some years after that, the reruns called Jet Jackson, Flying Commando, continued to be big. But then the planets stepped in, and things were slow for Webb. Now, everything's changed. His old sponsor, Ovaltine, has the rights to Captain Midnight and he's negotiated a deal whereby he'll produce new versions of the show. He feels he's too old to play the part, so he'll just produce. And he's updating the scenario a bit now the dashing captain will tootle around space in a flying saucer. Webb has also written a book, "These Came which purports to be true reports of reincarnation. He believes in it firmly and cites a story out of his own life as proof. As a young man, he met a girl and was infatuated with her. But they broke up he was 19 and he gave her a book as a parting gift. Some years later, he met a man who told him that, in a previous life, he had been a scribe with Genghis Khan. Fade out. Fade in. Webb later met that old girl friend and there's still a spark and they got married. She showed him the book he had given her years before. It is the life of Genghis Khan. "Why would a 19-year-old boy give that kind of book to a he asks, and there is no ready answer. Speaking of reincarnation, there's a fascinating novel on the subject around now called "The Reincarnation of Peter Proud." Max Ehrlich wrote it and has also written the screenplay for the movie ver- sion. He says he's had, for most. of his life, two recurring ex- periences not dreams, they happen when he's awake. Both are set in the Orient, a part of the world he's never visited. Yet both are replete with detail. "This caused me to he says, "from a total disbeliever in reincarna- tion to someone who simply isn't sure about it." And then he adds "But I think I can make this flat statement I do not believe that there is nothing after death." Ehrlich, who also co-wrote the screenplay for "The Savage Is says that creative writing today is "more and more revolving around film." "Today's best writers are in he says. "Many screenplays could and perhaps should be published. This is the area of the greatest literary writing of current day."
