LOS ANGELES (AP) For 10 years, American films have piled shock upon shock as movie-makers responded to the Sexual Revolution. Now the trend seems to be slowing. "I've noticed it in the' scripts I says Jack Lemmon, winner of this year's best-actor Oscar. "The raw sex seems to be on the decline. "After all, what is left to shock people with? Everything has been done on the screen, and familiarity makes things no longer shocking. If everybody streaked, nobody would notice. "Even so, look "how fast streaking has faded as a craze." Lemmon's views are shared by other leaders of the film community. Says Robert Wise, maker of The Sound of Music and The Andromeda Strain, and presi- dent of the Directors Guild of America: "I see a definite trend away from daring material on the screen. Not only because au- diences have grown accustomed to it. There is also a concern on the part of most film-makers about what course the Supreme Court will take." Wise referred to the June, 1973, decision by the United States Supreme Court allowing states and communities to decide their own standards of obscenity. Mike Nichols's Carnal Knowledge was ruled obscene in Albany, Ga., and an appeal is pending before the Supreme Court. PLANS CANCELLED "Personally, I know of eight films that have not been made because of the said John Frankenheimer, director of The Manchurian Candidate. Sue Mengers, who represents Barbra Streisand, Gene Hackman and other stars, said the studios have "been afraid of the X-rated picture for the last couple of years." Jack Smight, now directing Airport 1975, said the trend is away from the intimate story which lent itself to sexual scenes. Producers no longer are concerned with the relationship of two people; the big thing now is the catastrophe film. All-star casts are fighting to survive earthquake in Earthquake; fire in The Towering Inferno; air disaster in Airport 1975. Actress Susan Clark cites another tend against sex in films: "Love stories in films nowa- days are not about man and concern man and man." I run a very simple business. Do you know who I am?

Arts and Final session (Camp Impessa a.m. (except July 1) at East and Swimming, Canoeing, ,00) August 5, JACK LEMMON Radio star marks 97th birthday PETWORTH, England (AP) Fred Streeter, Britain's oldest and perhaps best-loved radio star, celebrated his 97th birthday yesterday with a cake decorated with his favorite flower, the wild primose. For almost 40 years he has been talking about gardening for the BBC with a singsong Sussex accent that has en- deared him to millions of listeners. Streeter still manages to do a bit of gardening in addition to his broadcasts. He began his career as a gardener's boy at Petworth, a baronial estate in Sussex that has one of England's finest gardens. Streeter rose to the post of head gardener with 26 assist- ants, and in 1935 the BBC asked him to give a talk on the radio. "I'm no good at that sort of he said. "I can't say boo to a goose." But his fears disappeared at the sight of the microphone. "It looked something like a honeycomb that bees might have come out he recalled. His broadcasts made Streeter Britain's most famous gardener, and his love for plants was legend. The old man still b'ves in a cottage in a secluded corner of the Petworth estate and says his recipe for a long life is in- terest in his work and the peace of the garden. "When St. Peter comes to the gate and asks what I have done with my life and I tell him gardening, he'll no doubt say 'Oh, well, get your coat off. there's plenty of weeds up here.'" Streeter said. Fiddlers9 bee set for Expo SPOKANE A fiddlers' bee June 29-30 will climax nine days of Scandinavian festivities at the Expo 74 World's Fair. The Folklife Festival at the fair is celebrating the contribution of Scandinavians to the Northwest. The Festival's theme changes each week to spotlight a different Northwest heritage. The Scandinavians brought the "Spelmansstamma" with them to this country. This type of fiddlers' bee is not competitive, but a gathering of musicians to share and skills. Musicians who flew to Expo from Norway. Sweden and Finland to begin Scandinavian Week will demonstrate the different styles of playing and tunes as they vary from district to district in the Scandinavian countries.

But Sarah Cooper, 14, of Metcalf, Ont., finds the poetic muse in wondering about the Queen's nose. The two youngsters are among 250 whose writings in English and French, prose and poetry have been reproduced in a new 275-page book published by All About Us, a federally-financed young writers and painters project. Jeffrey's wonderment about nature is in a poem entitled Drip: The drip looks like a dia- mond The sky is on the bottom, The ground is on the top. It is a mixed-up World inside a Drop of water. Sarah's poem, entitled The Queen's Nose, reflects more about the concerns of a young lady: Does the Queen's nose Turn the color of a rose Every time she tenderly blows it? Well nobody knows It doesn't really show So the Queen knows it! All About Us is financed through the citizenship branch of the secretary of state department. It started two years ago when Mrs. Betty Nickerson, a sociologist and publicist, began collecting samples of art work, and writing by youngsters, aged eight to 18. She believes that children in various parts of the country can learn to know Canada better through exchanges of their own creations. The book is one way of circulating their work. Another is a show of children's art ppening-at the National Arts' Centre here July 1, which later will go on a national tour. A SHOW r.OOLCOMFORT paramount NOW SHOWING MATINEE DAILY 2 P.M.
