Wayne and Shuster meet the south ,y MARLEN'F, COOKSKAW Herald Sfaff Writer tf someone's been in the pro- sslonal entertainment world 22 years, and his television jedals slill receive top rat- ?s, he's got to have some- ing going for him. Canada's comedy team of ayne and Shuster still retains s popularity, and the duo's re- ption by crowds while in uthern Alberta Friday proves ey're still going strong here. Hundreds, mostly ypung peo- e, showed up in spite of the eavy rain to welcome the men and collect autographed pic- res. Wayne and Shustcr were in e area to open Gulf Service entres in Claresholm and Vul- 10. It seems the two were origin- lly much more fascinated with ie newspaper business than iie entertainment world. They ere co-editors of the Univer- ty of Toronto's Varsity, aily student paper. We just couldn't seem to ke it in that they ex- lained. With their success evidenced y a record 67 appearances on he Ed Sullivan show, they ave never done.a weekly ser- es. Frank Shuster still express- d their feelings about It. "We were made a fantastic ffer about 10 years ago to do in American television series fohnny and I both had the ame feelings on it; "We both preferred to be dur able entertainers rather than ast four or five years and hav t end. You can't force yoursel into everybody's living room once a week and expect to re- main welcome. "The quality of our have suffered as well. Ve write all our own material, and produce and edit the shows, ve have much belter control ver the final production that way. "But it would be Impossible o do that on a weekly basis." The team plans to stick to its our specials a year, this year adding one "extra special" to ts schedule. The extra is an attempt to ilease both French and Eng- ish-speaking audiences at the same time a mime. 'We'd like to communicate with all Canadians. Music is the universal language, we fi- gure mime might be the next. it's sort of a bilingual experi- ment." Their first special, which :hey are currently writing, will 30 on the air Sept. 10. The Canadian "funny men'.' have been Gulf Oil Canada's advertising spokesmen for four years, and find it among other things, "a great way to see Canada." Mr. Shuster said he much- preferred the towns to larger centres. "In big cities, people are just like children, they're so thrilled to see a cele- brity. "In the smaller places they just come up to you and say '111.' It's friendlier that way and much more pleasant for us." Mr. Shuster had some advice for would-be slars. "You've got to start small. Get into local theatre groups, anything like that, and work hard. Get a good education You'll get your break we did." Viewing eclipse requires caution There will be a partial eclipse of the sun over Lethbridge July LO and anyone who looks direct- y ac the phenomenon could suf- "er permanent eye damage or even blindness. About of the sun will be obscurred by the moon at about a.m. Two safe methods of viewing the eclipse have been recom- mended on television or tlirougli a pin-hole camera, a simple device that can he made by poking a hole in one end of an enclosed container and past- ing a piece of white paper at the opposite end. Under no circumstances should anyonr try to watch the eclipse through binoculars, tele- scopes, opera glasses, smoked glass or sunglasses. "Exposed film or crossed pol- aroid sheets can be excessively dangerous because they reduce the glare which would normally cause a person to turn away from the said Dr. R. W. Macpherson, president of the Canadian Association of Opto- metrists. "The invisible infra-red radi- ation, which is the real danger, still permeates the material. In a short time sufficient radiation can accumulate and produce severe retinal burns which in turn can cause blindness." The magnitude and times of the eclipse will vary through- out Canada. The total eclipse vill take place in Eastern ar.< northern Canada while centra nd western Canada will exper ence a partial eclipse. Model 3BGS 36.000 Bin's S!

By GREG MclNTYRE HE MUST BE KIDDING Lethbridge Com- munity College board meetings are now closed to the public. Who does LCC president C. D. Stewart think is paying for Ihe "personalities, property and finance" his board is afraid to talk about in public No wonder the bubble has burst on higher education. After all the fanfare, wouldn't it be funny if the provincial government shelved the Worth report on educational planning just like the former government did with the Blair report on mental health reform three years ago. Disturbing rumblings out of the genetics confer- ence all the ingredients exist in the United States today to commit atrocities at least as horrible as Nazi Germany. City council is on record in unanimous support of a new million library for the city. Thank Aid. Vera Ferguson. It 'wasn't so, until she brought grum- bling critics into the fold by reminding them of past overspending blunders and appealing to the virtues of vision and leadership. It was left to Mayor Andy Anderson to put on the frosting by announcing that the city can easily afford the new structure. Some of us wonder why Premier Lougheed is in New York and other U.S. centres drumming up in- vestor, confidence in the province, while others are drafting up legislation to limit foreign takeovers. It takes extra effort to be honest the Sun- shine Players, a group who got Opportunities for Youth money to do theatre for junior citizens, were reported hit hard by cutbacks in their grant appli- cation. OFY applicants who did a little padding weren't suffering as much along the same line, the guy who asked the County of Lethbridge for for- mal permission to feed cattle on property a few miles from town was told he probably wouldn't be allowed. The law wasn't being invoked, however, against feed lots currently operating in the same vicinity.
