Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 14, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 LETHBRIDGE HERALD Friday, June 14, Film on Uganda leader popular PARIS (Heuter) Uganda's leader. Gen. Idi Amin, is the subject of a documentary film drawing packed audiences in a Paris cinema six times a day. Directed by Bar bet Shroeder of Switzerland, it studies the Ugandan leader through European eyes. Amin willingly participated in the venture, unaware that he would appear as a joke in the eyes of European audiences who roar with laughter at nearly everything he says. Screened just after the International Commission of Jurists charged that Amin's government carried out a "reign of terror" in Uganda, the documentary shows the controversial African leader conducting his day-to-day duties. One scene in which the burly general lectures his cabinet on the virtues of instilling "love for the government" among the population was described I run a very simple business. Do you know who I am? by some Paris newspapers as worthy of the best Hollywood slapstick. Cabinet minister are seen squirming uneasily as Amin rages against the alleged shortcomings of Foreign Minister Michael Ondoga. whose body, the narrator comments. found floating in the Nile two weeks later. While Europeans come out of the cinema chuckling, one young student from Cameroon seethed with anger. "Look, personally. I think that Gen. Amin is irresponsible and perhaps even crazy. But the fact was that everything he told the cabinet rang true, sincere and necessary. It may sound childish to lecture ministers on the necessity to work hard and be honest but Africa still has a long way to go towards progress and that type of talk is not always he said. It was typical of comments from the many Africans who line up to see the film each day. Their views were reflected by the Paris magazine Jeune Afrique which wrote that "in spite of the aims of the film- makers, the true force of conviction and sincerity comes straight out of Gen. Amin's non-conformist statements." Among film scenes which most amused Europeans was a manoeuvre carried out with the support of a single tank in which Amin conducted a mock assault on the Golan Heights. A swimming race in which Amin remarks candidly "I won" after literally driving his nearest opponent underwater also draws laughter.

KRESGES Geraidine at her best Jail inmates entertained by Television comedians LOS ANGELES (APt Deputy Sheriff Geraidine Jones twirled her purple panties on one finger, flung them at Prisoner No. 2140-875 and said: "Put that on your cell wall."

He and Pryor put on two 45 minute performances at the jail, dishing out earthy humor and inside jokes. TROUPE QUITS WASHINGTON (AP) The National Ballet, this city's only major resident professional dance troupe, has suspended operations here citing a S300.000 deficit. Increasing production costs and a lack of community support were given as the reasons for the demise of the troupe founded 12 years ago. It has presented more than 1.000 performances in 275 cities and was considered one of the few important dance companies in the U.S. outside of New York, Mrs. Richard Riddell. who founded the company- and The LARGEST ASSORTMENT of imported styles in LETHBRIDGE whose personal contributions of S2 million kept it afloat, said the troupe has been "desperate all year, and we didn't give up easily." RELEASE ACTOR LOS ANGELES (AP) Now that the lead actor is out of jail, the Ventra Theatre's newest play can open on schedule. But the principal prop, a fake bomb, remains in custody. The neighborhood theatre's production of a comedy about revolutionary violence ran into trouble here when police stopped the car in which lead actor John Reigrod was riding and found two sticks of what appeared to be dynamite attached to a clock. Reigrod. 25. said it was only a pair of safety flares painted black for use in the play. To Watch a Beautiful Sunrise. He was arrested for investigation of possessing a simulated explosive device. His lawyer got the charge drooped but police refused to return the prop bomb. BALLET OPENS LONDON (AP) The Bolshoi Ballet opened a six week engagement in London last night to hostile demonstrations, a cheering audience and adverse reviews. James Kennedy of The Guardian wrote that the Moscow troupe's performance of Swan Lake "was not really bad enough to warrant a demonstration against it. But it was a thorough disappointment." John Percival of The Times of London said the Bolshoi is one of the best companies in the world, but "it has come quite a way downhill since its first visit to London in 1956." As the 2.400 members of the first night audience arrived at the Coliseum Theatre, police locked arms to hold back demonstrators protesting the treatment of Soviet Jews and chanting. "Bolshoi TV jokes may help children LONDON (AP) Children who hear off-color jokes on television programs may ben- efit from the experience, it's indicated by a survey pub- lished Thursday by the Brit- ish Broadcasting Corp. It said jokes with sexual overtones could help children later to cope more easily with cruder forms of humor which they might encounter with their school friends. The survey, examining ef- fects of television and radio on persons under 15. said it is reasonable to assume most off-color jokes in light enter- tainment programs pass over the heads of many children. But it said those children whose curiosity about sex has already been aroused will seize on double meanings and treasure them as additional information on a subject about which they feel insufficiently informed. Artist recycles old items SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) Variety shows, quiz programs, even old news shows are being recycled by a British Columbia artist at the Rxpo '74 World's Fair. Evelyn Roth of Vancouver, is using old video tape to crochet clothing and other items, including a giant canopy. The triangular canopy measuring 25 feet on one side and 75 feet on the other two sides is expected to be completed and raised next Thursday. Expo officials said. "It will provide shelter for the courtyard in which Joe Davis will soon be at work carving a huge totem pole for erection on Canada Island" at the World's Fair, said Miss Roth. "Unless he is able to work in the shade, his wood will dry out too much." she said. Miss Roth's "sculptural wearables" include a "family sweater" with several sleeves and an evening gown which may be hung as a wall sculpture. Retractable booms for CN tower TORONTO (CP) Retractable booms will be installed on the CN communications tower in downtown Toronto later this year, scientists say. The 15 and 30 foot long spikes will stick out at four levels at the centre of the three buttresses that run up the tower. The shorter booms will be used exclusively for aircraft warning lights. The longer ones will carry lights, as well as instruments to measure wind speeds and air pollution. The National Research Council and Environment Canada are working with the University of Toronto in a research, program to study discrepancies that have been observed between the findings of wind tunnel tests on models and the effect of wind on completed buildings. The researchers say that the CN Tower, which will stand 1.805 feet when completed, will sway anywhere from an inch to two feet at the 1.100 foot level in hurricane force winds. A restaurant is now being completed at this level. Michael Collins of the University of Toronto's civil engineering department says that winds of 100 miles an hour would make the top of the tower sway as much as or 12 feet.'" This movement would affect the radio and television masts to be installed on the tower, he said, but not the concrete building itself.
