Phone 328-2328 Thousands Try Yearly To Make Bigtime Grand Old Opry House Dream Of Country Music Singers By BILL RAWLINS NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -If you have to, you can walk across the Shelby Street Bridge spanning the Cumberland River from Mom Up-church's rooming house to the Grand Old Opry House three miles away. And, if you're just breaking into the country music business, you may have to. When you hit Music City, U.S.A., with a guitar, $10 in your jeans and hope, you don't hire many taxis. You also find out that it can be a long three miles to the Opry House-and you may never get there at all. Edgel Groves, 28, made his first money picking and singing 12 years ago in an Akron, Ohio, nightclub. Since then, he's been to every stale in the country, made a few records for labels few people would recognise, sold products for an Akron rubber company- and kept on picking, singing . and writing songs. Now, feeling himself on the verge of the big time, he's taken an apartment near 16th Avenue South-where the action is and where most of Hie major recording companies and talent agencies have their headquarters. Girls also try-and some of them, like Bobby Gentry and Loretta Lynn, find life pleasant. COME WITH BIG HOPES But most who come here are boys, in their late teens, and single. They come each year by the thousands, by bus, by car and by thumb. And for 25 years, Mom Up-church's has been a haven for the young musician, dreaming of the big time-and not realizing that in this business, you've never really got it made. Jazz Guitarist Died Penniless Lonnie Johnson Funeral Held TORONTO (CP) - Lonnie Johnson was buried in quiet dignity, a sharp contrast to his turbulent, troubled life. He would have approved his funeral service for they ended on the melancholy notes of his two biggest hits. The guitarist, a legend in the world of jazz who cut more than 1,800 records and once had $122,000 in the bank, died all but penniless in his Toronto apartment last Tuesday. Fellow musicians who often helped him out in years of adversity gathered Saturday in Our Lady of Lourdes Roman Catholic Church in downtown Toronto to bid him farewell. It is not known who paid the funeral expenses. Lonnie, a perfectionist, would have disapproved of the acoustics in the cathedral-like church. Something was wrong with the sound system and the 75-odd mourners had to strain to follow the 45-minule service. The traditional rites of the church were broken only at the end when Ed Bickert, well-known Toronto guitarist, played and sang My Mother's Eyes and Toramorrow Night. Each sold more than 3,000,000 copies when Lonnie composed them in the 1940s. Lonnie's young widow, last of his three wives, and a daughter came from Philadelphia for the funeral. BORN IN 1(100 Lonnie Johnson who more than anyone else, it was said, made the guitar a jazz instrument, said he was born in the same year as trumpeter Louis Armstrong. That was 1900. He began his musical career at the age of 14 when he took turns on kazoo, violin, banjo, piano and guitar in his shoe- i maker father's string band in I New Orleans. He became a i wandering minstrel and played I the violin on Mississippi river-boats. In 1925, in St. Louis, he got his first recording contract. Later, when his career turned sour, he worked as a carpenter in Philadelphia. ! Lonnie came to Toronto in 1965 and for five years sought bookings, with little success. A coffee-house venture failed and he was fired by the man who took over the business. He never made more than a meagre living after that. A year ago he was struck by a car while walking and was hit again by a second car. He never fully recovered from the broken hip and kidney injuries. A benefit concert brought in $3,000 to help pay his hospital expenses. Last August he suffered a stroke. Controversial Bylaw Invalid "I guess I've had about 2,000 boys here," smiled Mrs. Upchurch, grey, bespectacled -and motherly. "I tell them it's their home. They have the run of the house. Sometimes, we have jam sessions, when they can all get together. But they're on the road so much." Any of her roomers go on to stardom? "I've had a few. Carl Smith, Faron Young and Ferlin Husky. They were some of my boys." Even if they make it big, the pattern of their life doesn't change; only the style, From Mom Upchurch's, they can move into a $100,000 lakeside home, but they can't stay there much; their records will bring $25,000 instead of $500 to $1,000; one-nighters will pay $3,000 instead of $100 or $200. When a musician gets caught up in the swirl, however, he finds himself in a vicious cycle. Without hit recordings he can't book personal appearances; without personal appearances, he can't sell records. For some of those who get to the top, there's too much pressure. The legendary Hank Williams had an unbelievably brief three-year stint as a Grand Ole Opry star before he collapsed and died in the rear seat of his car, en route to a one-night personal appearance in Alabama in 1952. WIVES ARE LONELY The divorce rate is high. It's not much of a life for a wife or a husband whose mate is never home. But still they come. And all of them have to write their own songs.

Mr. Justice Trepanier supported a petition brought before him by Claire Dupond seeking to have the bylaw declared unconstitutional. The judge said in his 12-page judgment that the bylaw concerned criminal law, a federal jurisdiction, and could not, therefore, be enacted by a municipality. The bylaw was adopted by the city of Montreal last November, a few days after a demonstration organized by supporters of accused terrorists Pierre Val-lieres and Charles Gagnon. The demonstrators sought the release of Vallieres and Gagnon, who had been held in jail since 1966 on charges con- File Suit Damages For Pollution DETROIT (CP) - Thirteen Canadian families are suing three United States firms for $:i,795,000 in damages allegedly caused by American pollution drifting over the Detroit River into the Windsor, Ont., area. A civil suit was filed in a United States Federal Court here on Friday against Great Lakes Steel, Allied Chemicals and Detroit Edison. The 33 Canadians are seeking $1,000,000 punitive damages from each of the Detroit-area firms for "wilfully and wantonly" jeopardizing their health. In addition the three companies are being sued together for a total of S795,0O0 compensatory damages. Donnelly lladdcn, an American attorney for the Canadian group, said the damages are being sought for decreasing of property value, damage to property, medical expenses and loss of the normal use and enjoyment of homes. nected with bombing deaths. Both now are free on bail. Miss Dupond is an active supporter of the two accused terrorists. The city bylaw provided for exceptional measures "to ensure to citizens the peaceful enjoyment of their liberties', to regulate the use of the public domain; and to prevent riots and other disturbances of order, of the peace and public security." The Vallieres-Gagnon demonstration, the last before the bylaw was adopted, degenerated into violence during which Molotov cocktails were thrown at police and the provincial courthouse. Youths rampaged through the downtown area following the demonstration, smashing windows in the financial district. New York Mets centre fielder Tommy Agee was the 1966 American League rookie of the year as a member of Chicago White Sox. FINE HYDRANT? LOS ANGELES (AP) - Municipal Court Judge Richard Amerian expressed doubt when the defendant pleaded not guilty to a parking offence on grounds that "the fire hydrant parked next to me." But after checking the city works department, he dismissed charges against Maurice Kleinman, 19. The hydrant was installed by I city workers alter Kleinman I parked his car.

"The established writers want to place their songs with the established stars. That means if the young singer can't write his own material, he can't get anywhere-and if he can't write good material, lie still can't get anywhere." Edgel Groves, son of a Church of the Nazarene minister who grew up in and near Akron, says he's had plenty of thoughts of giving up during the last 12 years-but he never has. Now, lie says confidently, "it's my time. I've paid my dues. This is the way I feel about it." 553 DIETRICH DENTURE CLINIC SUITE 8-304 5th St. S.
