(Reuters) Eleven years after the deatli of powerful tenor Mario Lanza, "new" recordings of his voice are bringing in a year in royalties. Lanza died in a Rome clinic at the ago of 38 after a brief and stormy career. The new records are taken from tapes, of radio shows that the star of The Great Caruso and other movies made in the early 1950s. In Russia, according to re- ports, some film fans still refuse to believe that Lanza is dead. He is still listed as one of the most popular United States stars in Russia. Lanza, who had: a perpetual weight battle and a turbulent career involving rows with film studios, died of a heart attack in 1959, 10 years after his first film, That Midnight Kiss. Other films included Because You're Mine, Serenade and The Seven Hills of Rome. Terry Robinson, Lanza's for- mer, manager, says the singer had never really been happy from the time ha became fa- mous. "He was extravagant and he had a lot of troubles with his fi- nances. When his daughter, Col- leen, asked him for a pony he bought her three. He had 12 servants. "He felt he was a'prisoner of his voice." That voice thrilled millions, and still does.

Some of his most popular songs were Be My Love, Because You're Mine and Avc Maria. Two or three "new" Mario Lanza records have been issued each year since his death. Fans frequently visit the home in this ocean-side suburb of Los Angeles which Lanza bought for his mother. Paris of it have been turned into a Lanza museum. A powerful record player in the sitting room sends forth the lusty voice of the man who played the famous Italian opera singer, Enrico Caruso. BOUGHT CHILDREN UP Photographs of Lanza are on the wall. A white bird in a cage near the sitting room window chirps every time it tears him sing. A bust of Lanza done by a Hungarian fan stands in the corner. Lanza's mother, Italian-born Mrs. Maria Cocozza, greets her son's fans. She has brought up her son's four children, whose mother died five months after Lanza's death. Mrs. Cocozza recalled her surprise when her son told her at the age of 16 that he wanted1 to be an opera singer. ''We had no idea that he had a voice. He would hum in the bathroom sometimes, but we never heard him sing." But his voice was never heard in a performance at a major opera house, although he twice banned to appear at La Scala n Milan. Nevertheless, his rec- ord of operatic arias from The "reat Caruso earned more than Today's Showtimes PARAMOUNT THEATRE "Airport" Last Complete Show PAHAMOUNT CINEMA "The Adventurers" r- Short Subjects Last Complete Show COLLEGE MALL CINEMA "Two Mules for Sister Sara" Short Subjects Last Complete Show GREEN ACRES DRIVE-IN "Paint Your Wagon" 'Discover America" One Complete Show City of Lethbridge PARKS AND RECREATION DEPARTMENT LETHBRIDGE ELIMINATIONS SOUTHERN ALBERTA SUMMER GAMES TRAP SHOOTING WHERE: Lethbridge Trap Club (west of airport) WHEN: p.m. July 22, 1970 COST: (thij Includes targets) GENERAL INFORMATION: T. must be a resident of the City of Lethbridge 2.
