The Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 26, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta -THI HlftALD H, 1174 IRVING SENTENCE IN HUGHES CASE UPHELD ZURICH (Reuter) A Swiss court has upheld a two year prison sentence imposed on Edith Irving for her part in the Howard Hughes autobiography hoax. This is the same sentence as that passed on Mrs. Irving by Zurich Cantonal Supreme Court last March on charges of fraud and forgery for depositing cheques in a Zurich bank which were intended as a publisher's payment to American billionaire Howard Hughes. The blonde, 38 year old Swiss born wife of American writer Clifford Irving was found guilty of using a false passport in the name of Helga R Hughes to deposit cheques made out to "H. R. Hughes" by the American publisher for a bogus autobiography written by her husband. Clifford Irving was jailed for 2U.years by a United States Court and fined for defrauding the publishing firm. In Mrs. Irving's retrial, the court's three judges decided unanimously that all mitigating circumstances had been taken into account at the first trial and there was no reason to reduce the sentence originally passed. Mrs. Irving pleaded guilty to all the charges and seemed unmoved by the verdict.

Phone 328-4080 715-4IM Avenue S. 327-2272 By BILL KUCHERAN Btoadel-AmaziiiK Bloedel. Simply 'superb' is the best description of this record. Amazing Blondel are now a duo, with former dominant personality John Gladwin hav- ing left the group. Their three previous albums adhered closely to their devotion to old English ballad forms, although their last I.p., 'England' moved slightly in the direction of a more modern style. This album is a culmination of that movement. Eddie Baird's lilting melodies are all dis- tinctly pop-rock in flavor, with just the right touch of their folk roots remaining. The beautiful arrangements are kept clean and brisk, with the harmonious vocals and the sharp aucostic guitar work backed with Terry Wmcott's moderate but tasteful use of the crumhorn and flute, which is coupled with haunting str- ing arrangements. Little touches, such as having ex- Free lead singer Paul Rodgers perform one of the vocals, help top off the set. Their movement away from their folk trappings may dis- appoint some purists, but there is little doubt that 'Blondel' is not only their best work, but a bright spot in the entire rock spectrum. (Island SMAS Preservation Act Kinks The music of the Kinks has always been just a step from the music hall and the theatre, and now they have adapted both for 'Preservation', an album similar to, but not in conjunction with their earlier l.p. 'Village Green Preserva- tion Society'. The new record is what will apparently be the first set of songs from a full scale musical. Lower-class England is again Davies' setting for his excellent lyrics, which revolve around such characters as a tramp, a Vicar, housewives and a Crossword FROM BALD TO VERSE By Bert Seaman 1 Red (as of Rel. of etc tie her Pilasters 7 Suffix Spotted or Native surf 11 Harsh Storehouse 16 Caesar, e Repeat 21 North African a unit 22 Like Dye Sailor's Dear in Milan 23 See 25- Fisherman's 24 See 25- 25 Start of Ethan quatrain family Aromatic 26 Watch Building 28 Kind Indian Wise old 2ft In Okinawa French 30 32 Blue Kind of Least See 25 A 33 Beauty Surplus 35 Robert Truly, Italian 36 37 Mountain U S painter 38 Carolina 39 See 25- 1 Bakery product 2 Guarantee of payment law 3 Lee's men 4 Con mus 5 Native of suff 6 Turn out 7 In due course 8 David's girl 9 Now and then abbr 10 Muse 11 Where some stouts come from 12 Runs Diagramless 13 Surveying in 14 French part 15 Esther foiled 16 plot Cordial base 17 Useful to baby 18 Fourth 19 Resident of 20 Takes 27 Church Harem room 31 Nine Virgin island Immediately 34 comb -for 35 Glorifies eyes Exterminates, 36 a way 114 Kind of lock 115 116 See 25-A 121 Across pref 124 Beams 125 Vats 126 USSR export 127 Excited 129 Kind of code 130 Math term 131 Did the butterfly 135 Swedish inventor 136 English court section 139 See 25-A 141 on (constantly) 142 Prompt 143 Common French verb 144 Lean 145 Quarrel 146 French artist 147 Pair 148 Earth, for one 56 Solution 57 Laugh 59 Amatory 61 Climb 66 Flower 68 Start a game 71 Fabric 73 Huge things 74 Confidential ly Fr 75 European currency unit 76 Muslim money var 77 Kind of galaxy 79 Navigational system 81 Zoological suffix 85 Proverbially can't be taught new tricks 86 Verse of a sort 88 De Havilland 90 Most menial 95 Noted Washington hostess 96 German city 97 for (tolerated1 99 Musical direction 101 Gudrun s spouse 102 Sometimes used on loafers 104 Stabilized temporarily 107 Equip with weapons 108 Results 110 TV fare 117 Regarded 118 Salad green 119 Humbled 120 Emulsifies X 19. by Alice D.

Although the songs are a little dis- jointed, with a little im- agination, one can fathom a bit of a plot. The familiar Kinks' rock and roll patterns are present, as are Davies' slower, touching ballads, and in addition, the 'theatrical' in- fluence shows on several opereta-like songs. The group relies on the brass used on the last two albums, but not in the same Dixieland fashion; rather, it serves both as a solid backing on the rock cuts, and to heighten the musical theatre imagery. To this end, an effective high-voiced girl chorus is also used. The whole production comes together perfectly, and it again reveals what musical masters Ray Davies and his Kinks are. (RCA Records LPL Genesis. In the tradition and style of King Crimson, Yes, and Pink Floyd come England's Genesis, easily as good a group. Instrumental com- binations, which vary from full bodied mixtures of voice, electric guitar, mellotron and flute to simply guitar or piano, make up their complex and witty selections. Surging rhythmic passages, mellow folk style segments and fre- quent fade-ins between tempo changes are all common elements of their music. Their imaginative lyrics stand out as poetic works of art, both in conventional and avante- garde fashions. Their three albums, 'Nursery Cryme' (Charisma (AS 'Pox- trot' (Charisma (AS 1058) and 'Selling England By The Pound' (Chansm PC 6060) are all top-notch and should in- crease the acclaim for the group's five members. Moondog Band. Before they met Dylan in 1965, they were Rompin' Ron- nie Hawkin's Hawks, and were playing in little clubs across Ontario. No doubt that was their inspiration in producing this album compos- ed entirely of 1950s 'oldies'. Rather than do the songs as a camp and crass parody, they adapt the material to fit their own easygoing style. Twelve bar rock and roll songs by Chuck Berry, and" Fats Domini, slow ballads (Share Your Love') make up the bulk, of the record, with a few cuts like 'Mystery Train' standing out. Their respectful treat- ment of the material brings out its best, and makes for a warm, effective record. (Capitol Painter. Painter is a group well known to Lethbridge audiences, both from their '49th Parallel' days and their recent concert appearance. While the concert may have left a bit to be desired, the same can't be said for their album. Danny Lowe, Doran Beattie, Wayne Morice, Bob Ego and Barry Allen have con- structed a classy album of listenable hard rock. While there is an odd weak point, the overall professionalism, and such highlights as Danny Lowe's guitar work and some strong vocals speak highly for this excellently recorded and produced work. (Electra EKS Close to Alabama's beautifully packaged album is a loose homey mixture of rock, country and pop ideoms. In addition to their guitar, keyboards, bass and drums, the four members of the group on the use of fiddle, strings and steel guitar. They create an enjoyable countryish sound, such as on their ace single 'Highway Driving'. A little work is need- ed vocally and lyrically, but overall they have produced a pleasing record. (Smile SMS 2) Jan Akkernian-Peter Banks. Guitarist Jan Akkerman's Focus rocketed on to the music scene in 1973, and they deserved all the raves they received. They recently released a live album, 'At The Rainbow' (Sire SAS 7408) which presents quite solid ver- sions of some of their earlier material Akkerman is currently subject to two solo albums, one a new effort, and the other, of this, 'Profile' is a fine record, offering one side of surging electric guitar solos, balanced by a side of classical style acoustic guitar pieces Formerly lead guitarist for Yes, in 1971 Peter Banks formed Flash, and on their first l.p. they created a stir with their exciting, if Yes-like materials. On the next album, however, their distinctive features, such as synthesized guitar, and harsh and sudden tempo changes, grew over- indulgent and boring Their last album. 'Out Of Our Hands' (Sovereign SMAS 11218) suffered the same fate, and recently the group dis- banded Banks, however, combined with Akkerman to cut a solo album "Two Sides Of Peter Banks' (Sovereign SMAS The excellent record is devoted entirely to guitar, and a variety of styles including fast, cutting solos, and electronically altered effects are used.
