Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 26, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Wednesday, June LETHBRIDGi HERALD-7 TV movie show host ex-comedian TORONTO (CP) Comedian Gene Taylor has written jokes for Bob Hope and toured the Playboy Club circuit in the United States on a salary of a week. He gave all that up to come to Toronto as host of CITY- TV's afternoon movie show. Prizewinners Playhouse. He also does zany newscasts under the pseudonym Victor Voice and is host to a 1950s- style party each Tuesday night at the Nickelodeon on Yonge Street. Moving here meant taking a cut in pay, but Taylor, explaining his reasons for the change in an interview, said he is the youngest guy he knows who can boast of having his own daily TV show. Besides, the nightclub thing generally is going down, and he likes Toronto: "Clean and safe, all the things New York should be and isn't." Taylor's Victor Voice news- casts started last October dur- ing breaks in the afternoon movies. Several were used later just before the Friday night Baby Blue Movie and response was so good the station decided to make them a regular feature. Taylor said his jokes are "just they're meant to be." BEGAN AS DISC JOCKEY Taylor, a 26-year-old native of Detroit whose real name is Eugene Lee Herships, began his career at 18 as a disc jockey in Streater, 111. Two years later he started working nightclubs. After army duty he took his comic routine to burlesque clubs. When Bob Hope came to the Canadian National Exhibition in 1969, Taylor paid a bellhop at the Royal York Hotel to slip some jokes under the star's door. Before he knew it he was travelling in advance of Hope, writing local material in places where Hope was to appear.

BRANDO HOSPITALIZED LOS ANGELES (AP) Oscar winning actor Marlon Brando has been admitted to hospital for treatment of a tear in his throat.

Rock group drops 'obscenity act9 following protest SWIFT CURRENT, Sask. (CP) Rev. Larry Edwards, whose protests prompted the dropping of an obscenity-rid- dled act from a tour by the rock group Lighthouse, says it is encouraging to find that people will respond to such protests. The United Church of Can- ada minister also expressed surprise that the act, per- formed by two Nova Scotia brothers whose function was to warm up audiences for Lighthouse, aroused no pre- vious protests in British Co- lumbia or Alberta. The brothers, Blair and Gary MacLean of Glace Bay, were to be dropped from Lighthouse's 75-day cross- Canada tour after weekend performances in Winnipeg. Mr. Edwards described in an interview how he organ- ized protests against the act, saying "I hope that what I have done has saved the rock concert tour, not killed it." He said he started his cam- paign after his two teen-age children had gone to see Lighthouse perform in Swift Current and told him about the warm-up act. Mr. Edwards first protested to Labatt's Breweries, which is subsidizing the tour; Media Advertising Personnel, the tour promoters; and the pro- vincial attorney-general's de- partment. A Labatt's official said no other protests had been re- ceived previously. After getting no satisfac- tion, Mr. Edwards started or- ganizing a general protest: "I just tried to tell every- body I knew what a dirty, fil- thy thing it is. I wrote mayors and police officials and churchmen and anybody I could get hold of." After protests started com- ing in, the MacLeans were dropped from Lighthouse's Regina performance and told they would not be needed after Winnipeg. Bruce Bell, Lighthouse spokesman, said pressure came from the United Church, Saskatoon police and Labatt's. Lighthouse leader Skip Pro- kop said adverse reaction to the Saskatchewan concerts put some subsequent tour con- certs in jeopardy and he felt he had to drop the MacLean brothers although he was un- happy with "the immaturity SPECIAL OCCASION GIFTS from THE NOOK Westminster Plaza Phone 329-0700 I run a very simple business. Do you know who I am? Wednesday Night at the LEGION VIMY LOUNGE "Bridgetown Trio" Members and Invited Quests Show Times and narrow-mindedness ol some of the people involved in the whole thing." The MacLeans meanwhile, found some benefit in the in- cident. "From all the publicity we've received from this con- troversy, it sounds like we are going to go over pretty said Gary MacLean, while Blair predicted "we're going to be the hottest college group around." Blair MacLean contended that audiences had not been the others not going to the concerts that are imposing their morality." Gary MacLean said "we were doing well till we met up with the Rev. Larry." The brothers, whose act is- described in promotional ma- terial as "straight toilet rock designed to flush your muddy have been described by one Toronto reviewer as "not only the funniest act in the country but also the fil- thiest." A record of theirs, Toilet Rock, is to be released shortly. "That's an insult, you know, to a Mr. Edwards said. "The toilet is a really beau- tiful functional thing. It's the guys that loiter around toilets that are disgusting and that's the kind of humor it was." Stressing his belief that there is a place for obscenity in art when the obscenity is being used to make a social or moral point, Mr. Edwards said the obscenity in the MacLean act was there just for obscenity's sake.
