(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 tliree 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 iiie Opi-y House-and you may never get there at all. Edgel Groves, 28, made liis fii-st 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 the major recording companies and talent a.gencies have tlieir headquarters. Gii'ls try-and some of them, like Bobby Gentry and Loretta Lynn, find life pleasant. COME WITH BIG HOPES But most who come here ai-e 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-chiu'ch'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 .ol 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 helpefi him out in yeai-s 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 e-xpenses. 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 Toimmorrow Night. Each sold more than 3,000,000 copies when Loraiie composed them in the 1940s. Lonnie's young widow, last of his three wives, and a daughter came from Pliiladelphia for the funeral. BORN IN liton 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 tui-ns on kazoo, violin, banjo, piano and guitar in his shoe- maker father's siring band in New Orleans. He became a wandering minstrel and played 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 ccffee-bDuse venture failed and he was fired by the man who took over the business. He never made more than a meagi'e living after that. A year ago he was struck by a car while walking and was hit again by a second car. He never faijly recovered from the broken j hip aiKl kidney injm-ies. A benefit concert brought in .�3,000 bo help pay his hospital expenses. Last August he suffered a stroke. "I guess I've had about 2,000 boys here," smiled Mrs. Upchurch, grey, bespectacled -and motlierly. "I tell them it's their home. They have the run of the house. Sometimes, we have jam seisions, 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, tiiey can move into a $100,000 lakeside home, but they can't stay there much; their records wiU 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 pressui'e. 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 stUl they come. And all of them have to write tlieir own songs. "Tliat's the problem of the young singer," explains Audie Ashwortli, an executive with the Hubert Long talent agency, one of the giants in MONTREAL (CP) - A controversial city bylaw restricting demonstrations in Montreal was declai-ed invalid today by Mr. Justice Paul Trepanier of Superior Court. Mr. Justice Trepanier supported a petition brought before him by Clau-e Dupond seeking to have the bylaw declared unconstitutional. The judge said in his 12-page judgment that the bylaw concerned ciiminal law, a federal jurisdiction, and could not, therefore, be enacted by a municipality. The bylaw was adopted by tJie city of Montreal last November, a few days after a demonstration organized by supporters of accused terrorists Pierre Vai-lieres and Charles Gagnon. The demonstrators sought the release of V a 11 i e r e s 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 $3,795,000 in damages allegedly caused by American pollution diifting over the Detroit Ri\er into the Windsor, Ont., area. A civil suit was filed in a United Stales Federal Coifft here on Friday against Great Lakes Steel, Allied Chemicals and Detroit Edison. The 33 Canadians ai-e seeking $1,000,000 punitive dam*-ages from each of the Detroit-area fu-ms for "wilfully and wantonly" jeopardizing their health. In adcition the thi-Rc companies are being sued together for a total of $795,000 compensatory damages. Donnelly Hadden, an American attorney for the Canadian group, said the damages are being .wught for decreasing of property value, damage to properly, medical expenses and loss of the normal use and enjoyment of homes. FINE HYDRANT? LOS ANGELES (AP) - Municipal Court Judge Richai-d Amerian expressed doubt when the defendant pleaded not guilty to a parking offence on grounds that "the fire hydrant pairked next to me." But after checking the city works department, he dismissed charges against Maurice Kleinman, 19. Tlie hydrant wa.s insLnlled by city workers after Kleinman parked his car. 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 secu-rit}'." The Vailieres-Gagnon demonstration, the last before the bylaw was adopted, degenerated into violence during which Molotov cocktails were throWTi at police and the provincial courthouse. Y'outlis rampaged tlwough the downtown area following the demonstration, smasliing windows in the financial district.

That means if the yoimg singer can't write his own material, he can't get anywhere-and if he can't write good material, he 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. he says confidently, "it's my time. I've paid my dues. This is the way I feel about it." DfETRICH DENTURE CLINIC SUITE 8-304 5th St. S.
