Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 20, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 18 THE LHHBRIDGE HERAID Monday, July 20, 1970 Tony Burrows In Four English Groups In Half Year 7.5 Mittum Records By ROGEH DOUGHTY NEA If you have bought any records during the last six months there's a very TONY BURROWS good chance you are now the proud owner of a Tony Bur- rows disc. What's that? You never heard of Tony Burrows? There's still a very good chance that you're the proud owner of a Tony Burrows record. In fact, it's very hard not to own a Tony Burrows rec- ord since he has been respon- sible for the sale of 7.5. mil- lion of the little round things during the past half year. Seven-and-a-half million is quite an amount, but Tony did it the hard way (or in his case maybe it's the easy way) by singing lead with four dif- ferent English groups. Here's the way he explains it: "I worked for five years with he says, "the best known being the Kest- rels and the Flower Pot Men. then about nine months ago I gave it up to do studio work. It just so happens that I re- corded with Edison Light- house, the Brotherhood Of Man, White Plains and the Pipkins." All the above-mentioned groups had records released at the same time and all were QUALITY DENTURE CLINIC 324 5th St. S. Ph. 328-7684 Above Capitol Furniture EDDY DIETRICH, C.D.M. solid hits, which is how Tony personally was responsible for the sale of million rec- ords. explains Tony, who is a friend of Paul Mc- Cartney, "the song that hit for White Plains, 'My Baby Loves was recorded by the Flower Pot Men. The record was in the can and the group had split up when the record company decided to release it and credit it to a different group, which is how White Plains came to be. It was a funny situation." At the same time "My Baby Loves Lovin' was making it, Tony's voice could also be heard leading the way for Edison Lighthouse on "Loves Grows (Where My Rosemary 'and "United We Stand" by the Brotherhood of Man. Then the Pipkins made it big with "Gimme Dat which is still climbing the charts, and Tony had four hits out at <7< win N QUEEN CROWNED Helena Willetts of Hardieville was named Queen for the year by the Pensioners and Senior Citizens Incorporated. She will ride in the Whoop- Up Days parade as representative of the club. She was elected by the Chinook Branch, SUMMER CLEARANCE JULY 15th to 31st DRESSES SUNGLASSES SKIRTS BLOUSES PANT SUITS SPORTSWEAR PATIO WEAR CLASSIC BOUTIQUE 323 6th ST.

This was very nice financially, but not much ar- tistically since nobody knew what Tony had accomplished. But when you're that good the word just has to get out, so Larry Uttal, president of Bell Records, decided Tony should go it alone. His first single, "Melanie Make Me is doing well and Bell will release Ms first LP soon. "The strangest thing that ever happened to says Tony, "took place on an Eng- lish TV show, Top of the Pops. It's a top 30 rock show and one week they booked Edison Lighthouse, Plains and the Brotherhood of Man.-So I was on three times in .one night, which caused -me to do three of the fastest costume changes ever. A couple of weeks later they booked Edi- son Lighthouse, the Pipkins and Brotherhood of Man and I had to do it all over again. Life is much easier as a single." 1 Remember Tony Burrows. You're going to be hearing a lot more from that you haven't heard a lot from him already. WHOOPIN' IT UP Members of the Hi Neighbor Club recently held a pre-stampede, oldtime and modern dance in Lethbridge to get those participating in high spirits for Whoop-Up Days which started today. Ann Land ers DEAR ANN LANDERS: Our teen-age son had surgery last week and you wouldn't believe the questions people have asked me about the operation even after I made it clear I didn't want to discuss it. Why do these clods think the intimate details of surgery are public property? How does one get across the idea that if the information isn't volun- teered it is bad manners to pry? Yesterday a neighbor bombarded me with some ex- tremely personal questions. Finally I lost my temper and said, "I really don't want to talk about it, if you don't mind." With fire in her eye she snapped, "I ask because I am INTERESTED in the Boy. I can't understand why you are so sensitive." I ended up by apologiizng but I felt like kicking her in the teeth. I was brought up to believe it is rude to put a person through the third degree with personal matters. How should I deal with nosey folks? Mother DEAR MOTHER: The best way to handle a None-Of- Your-Business type question is by asking a counter question: Example: "Why do you "What on earth do you want to know If the lunkhead ignores your question and con- tinues to press, simply say, "Do you mind if we change the subject to something more DEAR ANN LANDERS: You once repb'ed when asked if women were smarter about marriage than men, "Have you ever heard 'of a woman marrying a man for his I laughed when I read it, but it started me thinking. What DO women look for when they want to marry? All around me I see lovely gals who are supporting loafers, boozers, and chasers. These men aren't particularly handsome or interesting or even decent, in some instances. Why would a pleasant, bright, successful woman who can support herself in style hook up rath a jerk who is inferior to her in every way and carry the financial burden besides? This is not a new wrinkle, Ann. I had two aunts who did it 30 years ago. Nobody in the family could figure it out. Can you? Mused DEAR B.: Some gals are so terrified of spinsterhood they'll settle for anything. Heaven knows why, but the un- married man is viewed as a glamorous, elusive gay blade, while the single woman on the lying side of 35 is considered an old maid. Of course this is rubbish. I've said it before and I'll say it again: Any woman can get married if she sets her standards low enough.

(CP) In- grid Szsbo is using supermarket vigilantes in a housewives' war against poverty. Mrs. Szabo, of this Vancouver suburb, has organized what she calls a Mothers' Club with about 50 other women to promote cost-cutting shopping techniques and spot bargains. She says: "During the Depression peo- ple knew how to get along on very little. Why can't they do so now? "Women keep complaining about the amount of their ali- mony, welfare or husband's cheque. I feel sorry for them because I know they are not shopping well." There is no point in expecting the woman of the family to go to possible income is too low to make it worth while; and she already is partly to blame for the low-income fam- ily's problems, Mrs. Szabo says. "The wife takes the pay cheque. The man works hard for it and the woman shouldn't spend it on junk that wiH end up in the basement." So the mothers' Club meets weekly in small groups and monthly as a whale to pass on money-saving ideas, bargains, information on cheaper housing and to swap unneeded clothes. Mrs. Szabo preaches selective shopping and quantity buying of any bargains. She herself once found 10-pound bags of laundry soap selling for 99 cents each and now has a supply to last her years. -One day a club member spot- ted toilet paper selling cheap, with a limit of two packages per customer. The club spent the afternoon checking in and out of the store until they had a car- full. "The club will get women put of their rut, lend a helping hand. People have lost their self-confidence. If they'd get out and do something, they'd be from behind their television sets much happier." l.A. TO F.O.E. BINGO Monday, July 20 JACKPOT 54 NOS.
