Hoss moves family to Switzerland By BOB THOMAS HOLLYWOOD (AP) - Hoss Cartwright in the land of fondue and yodel? It seems unlikely, hut Dan Blocker, the Sierra-sized star of TV's Bonanza series, has moved his family to Lugano, Switzerland. He intends to make his residence there whenever he isn't working.

Irwin Bleta, commanding* officer of the Calgary RCMP subdivision, said here he will leave his position in March to be [ come assistant director of security with the National Hockey | League. The newly - formed NHL security force will not act as a watchdog, said Inspector Blehm, but will try to prevent | scandals by acquainting players with the sort of games they might "innocently become involved in." The inspector, from Burstall, Sask., has been commanding officer of the 270-man sub-divi sion since last October. He said he will be stationed in New York. out. My wife and I had been to Europe once, and I told her: 'The next time we go, we gotta see that country.' " Last year the Blockers went -and were entranced. They visited Lake Como and Lake Maggiore, then viewed Lugano, which Blocker termed "the prettiest place I ever saw." TOOK THE KIDS They discovered an American school nearby and last September the family moved into a chalet-parents, 17-y e a r -o 1 d twin girls, boys, 15 and 13, plus two other boys from their old neighborhood who are attending the school. It's great for the kids," said Blocker. "They go to a fine school, they're learning languages and all of Europe is just a short train-ride away. We've got no discipline problems; my wife has everything under control. "I was there for the holidays, and I get back whenever I can break away. All I need is a I four-day weekend. That'll give me a couple of days with them." Blocker denied that he made the move for financial reasons. STILL PAYS TAXES 'Taxes? Hell, I don't save a dime in taxes. If I were to take dual citizenship, that'd mean I'd have to pay 17 per cent of my earnings to Switzerland-plus what I'm paying here. No. thanks. "Course, I don't mind paying taxes here. My only objection is how my tax money is being used. Instead of going for highways and the environment and the social programs we need so badly, it's being used to drop napalm on people in Southeast Asia. That's what I object to." The isolation of a Swiss vil-1 lage may have had its enticements to him. Like James Ar-ness, star of Gunsmoke, Blocker has never enjoyed the attention that his television fame has brought to him-and neither he nor Amess can get lost in a crowd. "Bonanza appears on Swiss TV but only in German," he said during a shooting break here. "There aren't many German-speaking people in southern Switzerland, and I admit that had something to do with me settling in Lugano." Elvis' life threatened MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -There have been threats against the life of entertainer Elvis Presley, a Memphis newspaper says, and his opening Tuesday night at a Las Vegas hotel will be amid some of the tightest security in the resort city's history. Disclosure of the threats was made by the Memphis Commercial Appeal in a story from Las Vegas by staff writer James Kingsley, Long a friend of Pits-ley. Details of the threats were not revealed. In Las Vegas, Bruce Banke, assistant director of public relations for the International Hotel, said security arrangements will be no different than in the past. "We have not given him anything other than his regular protection, two security men," said Banke. and his 19-year-old wife Beth are expecting a baby in August.

Social group CALGARY (CP) - The Alberta Association of Social Workers "is too interested in itself and not enough in the clients of its members," says a University of Calgary social welfare student. Phillip Schwartz urged delegates to the association's annual convention to fight for social justice by becoming more politically active. "We have been content to change individuals, but if social problems have social as well as individual causes, then we won't succeed. "It is our role to do whatever is necessary to alleviate human suffering and misery," he told a panel discussion here. Barbara Scott, a Calgary social research consultant, supported his plea for more political involvement by social workers. "If we are to make any meaningful contribution to the struggle for social justice, we must broaden our base beyond the traditional scope of social work." Miss Scott urged the formation of strong political lobbies to advance social legislature. Earlier, Mayor Rod Sykes criticized welfare rights groups for being "irresponsible and militant" protestors who might stimulate a public backlash against all social services. | "These militant little protest groups can only do a great deal of damage to the people they profess to represent."

'If dramatic action is necessary, then let it be peaceful." The mayor also criticized "the lack of co-operation and co-ordination" between agencies in the social service field. "The three levels of govern ment and the private agencies have created a jungle where there are too many people competing for the taxpayers' money, "Too many agencies consider their work a sort of private preserve and show a lack of sympathy with other organizations doing similar work." He urged social workers to train "more mature" people who have experienced life's problems to help with their work. PARAMOUNT ClfJEMA 4th AVI ft tllh S! - 377 'jlOO NOW IN ITS HURRY!
