Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 4, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Monday, March 4, 1974 THE LBTHBRIDOf HERALD 7 Symphony will tour Canada By JAMES NELSON VANCOUVER (CP) The Vancouver Symphony will make a cross-country tour after it returns this fall from China, Timothy Porteous, associate director of the Canada Council, says. He told a meeting of about Purchase of U.S. dismissed HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) A federal judge has thrown out of court a suit by a 61- year-old woman who claims her grandmother bought the United States for million in 1864 Mrs Louis Staedtler Hopp of South Norwalk, Conn., said Chief Sitting Bull sold the country to her grandmother, Francesca Staedtler, with the' approval of President Abra- ham Lincoln and Congress. Her 10-page handwritten complaint seeking to claim the country said her family paid off the million in million annual instalments, the final million being paid in 1963. She said one copy of the bill of sale was kept under mili- tary guard in a glass case, and another is held by a Chief Eagle in California. Judge Jon Newman dis- missed the suit on grounds that it was filed too late and in the wrong court. He said it should have been filed in the U.S. Court of Claims within six years of completion of the sale. DIETRICH DENTURE CLINIC ROSS HOSACK Dmtal Mechanic Suit. 5th SI. S. Ph. 327-7244 200 members of the Vancouver district artistic community that the council, which subsidizes the arts with about million a year, believes international ex changes are important. Some in the audience dif- fered. One man shouted that the Vancouver Symphony should have toured Canada before being sent to China. "We need to have our culture seen in our own he said. "The Vancouver orchestra should be sent to Alberta, to Ontario and to New Brunswick before it goes to China." Others said Canadian plays should be given priority in Ca- nadian theatre, and Canadian writers should be subsidized to write plays for regional theatres. Mr. Porteous said it would not be right to order the artistic directors of Canadian theatres to use a Canadian playwright. Such a command, he said, shouldn't come from Ottawa, "or from Moscow." FUNDING DOUBLED Andre Fortier, director of the council, said arts funding by the Canada Council, doubled in the last three years, will be up another 20 per cent next year. Mr. Porteous said the cost of international exchanges does not come out of Canada Council funds. The external affairs department and the government of the host country paid for sending the Vancouver Symphony to China and the National Arts Centre Orchestra of Ottawa to Russia last spring. Mr. Porteous said that as Canadian playwrights improve their skills, more Canadian plays will be used, but regional theatres in Canada are still developing their audiences and building up their skills, imolying they need the works of better- known, established writers to draw money to their box of- fices.

Shades of Betty Boop, Snow White, and Porky Pig! Say good bye to the old fashioned movie cartoon and prepare yourself for the age of artful animation. According to all evidence, the special world of pen and ink and celluloid is reaching its maturity at last. Talk about animation sophistication: Would you believe a four-day cartoon extravaganza at New York animal exists, month .and bearing as 'its dignified title VThe Second International Animation Film Festival." Cartoonists the world over were represented, with highlights ranging from a Yugoslavian Retrospective to an American feature length double bill. Quite a switch from a day when to most filmgoers, meant five minutes of Bugs Bunny during which everyone bought their popcorn. Nor is the NYU festival the only indication of a new vigor in the realm of animation. "Fantastic a new French Czech feature length cartoon, has voyaged to the United States after winning a prize at the 1973 Cannes Film Festival garnering much popular and critical acclaim. The movie version of Desmond- Morris' popular anthropology bestseller, "The Naked mixes live action with animated sequences. Young filmmaker Ralph Bakshi has achieved great commercial success with "Fritz the Cat" and "Heavy though his "adult" subject matter regrettably relies on crude and lurid imagery, his professional skills themselves have indicated a new technical flexibility for the feature length cartoon. And one animation scholar has Entertainment shorts Cassidy fans hurt SYDNEY, Australia (Reu- ter) About 60 girls needed medical attention after being crushed against a stage at a pop concert given by Ameri- can singer David Cassidy to- day for persons at Randwick racecourse here. The girls either fainted or were injured when the crowd surged forward. At least 15 were taken to hospital. Cassidy had to stop the show for 15 minutes when fans, some as young as eight years old. ignored his pleas to move back. Scores of girls, many of them weeping, were bundled away by police and security officers when they attempted to touch the singer. Twenty workmen were called in to reinforce the plat- form with beams and pipes. Timmons formed his own trio in the 1960s and played frequently- here and in Washington. Soul music was the trio's speciality. Among the pieces he wrote were Moanin' and Dat Dere. NEW YORK (AP) Bobby Timmons. 38, jazz pianist, vibraharpist and composer, died Friday. Born Robert Henry Timmons in Philadelphia, he started studying music at the age of six and began his career with Kenny Dorham's Jazz Prophets in 1956. He later played with Cher Baker. Sonny SliU. Maynard Ferguson. Art Blakey. Cannonball Adderley and J. J. Johnson. VAN NUYS, Calif. (AP) A member of the Jackson Five rock group has been cleared of charges in connection with a burglary case.

Peetris accepted a guilty plea from John Jackson. 22. who is not a relative or a member of the rock group. John Glenn determined to make it in politics lauded Walt Disney Productions' current "Robin Hood" for bringing cartoon character acting to newly subtle heights. Actually, cartoondom's coming of age should come as no surprise. Once upon a time, and a very ingenious time it was, animations were thought, amusing playthings for the' younger set. Yet a few foresighted filmmakers among them the great Walt Disney seemed to grasp the extraordinary opportunity afforded by an art that sprang full bloom from the animator's pen and imagination. Anything but anything can happen in a cartoon, the only movie form unhindered by moods of actors, rules of common sense, or even laws of gravity. Realizing this, the Disney studios quietly created some of the best loved art in movie history artlessly distinguished by such titles as "Lady and the Tramp." Parents would take their children to such.films, and often you couldn't tell which generation was charmed most. So the animation impetus spread and took on new forms. Some daring filmmakers devised abstract experiments with serious, whimsical, or mixed intent such as Norman McClaren's "Lines" and the Whitney "Celery Stalks at Midnight." Yet a dividing line persisted between the fairytale "popular" cartoon and underground "serious" cartoon. Hopefully the NYU animationfest will help blur that line, by illustrating the tremendous quantity and diversity of today's animated films. At a recent preview screening I sampled the festival's wares. I saw some films I like and some I didn't, but I was consistently impressed with the broad spectrum of works on hand. COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) A dozen years after he became the first American to orbit earth, John Glenn gazed across the huge living-dining expanse of his new home on the bank of the Scioto River. "I never thought I'd have a njome like he said. He moved back from the railing of his mezzanine study. "It's beautiful, but it still lacks one thing." He pointed to the railing. "I wanted to have a gate cut right he said. "Then I wanted to install a fire pole so I could slide down." He gestured toward his wife. "She wouldn't let me." Mrs. Glenn shook her head. Her husband, a dozen years older and 10 pounds heavier than he was as an astronaut, looked down with an affec- tionate smile. Considering the pace of his life, Glenn's desire for a fire pole was not all that freakish. He actually has not been out of orbit since Feb. 20, 1962, when Friendship 7 splashed down safely in the Pacific. Almost every afternoon Glenn, at 52 a trim 180 pounds, jogs three miles along suburban roads near his new home. The rest of his waking hours are devoted to running for the second time for the Democratic nomination as United States senator from Ohio, the seat vacated by Attorney-General William Saxbe. ATTEMPTED IN 1965 Glenn's desire to be a senator is not any sometime thing. He first set out to run in 1965 after he left the marines for private life. A bathroom accident ended that race. Healthy once again, Glenn came back in 1970 to run against Howard Metzenbaum of Cleveland, now the interim senator filling the unexpired term of the late Robert Taft Jr. Glenn carried 75 counties, Metzenbaum only 13. It's Glenn versus Metzen- baum again this year and the space hero is rated the under- dog. Still, he refused to admit he may lose a second time. Life went on at a frantic pace after Glenn left the space program in 1965. He because vice-president for international development of Royal Crown Cola Corp. and spent three years junketing furiously over the globe he had circled in Glenn gave up the vice- presidency but remains a Royal Crown Cola director, as well as a director of Questor Corp. of Toledo. He is also in the motel business. He and friends own five motels. Between politics and business, not to list civic activities, Glenn hasn't had much time recently to devote to his favorite leisure and camping. His son David, 28, is a sec- ond-year medical student at Case Western Reserve in Cleveland. Daughter Lyn is 26 and now Mrs. Mike Powers of Washington, D.C. TALKS ABOUT WORLD Glenn glanced at ski maga- zines littering a coffee table and began talking about the world and the kinship of man. "I'm not ready to go for some supra-national government and turn our country over to he said, "but, if people would just bet to know one another. "Look, you fly in space over the Middle East. You can see it all. It seldom has a cloud cover. You look down and it's all there and you think they're down there fighting. He looked down at the floor and half chuckled. "That reminds me of some- thing that happened just before I launched in 1962. You know, it wasn't quite clear where I was likely to land if I had'to make an emergency re- entry. "It might be in the jungle or some wild place where they never heard of space. So I got to thinking about it. I could just see me parachuting down into the jungle, flipping the hatch open and stepping out in my silver suit." He laughed. "Boy, I could have been king or dead right fast So, I wrote up a little speech, like 'I am a friend. I am flying for the United States, take me to your leader Mao's phone unlisted in Peking's directory PEKING (Renter) Dial double 0 to call the police, 123 for the weather forecast, and keep your telephone calls brief. These and many other nug- gets of information and ex- hortation are contained in a recently-published edition of what in Peking is a rare and precious object, the telephone directory. Until the new edition came out. directories were not on sale and few foreigners possessed one, either for Peking or for anywhere else in China. Directories were not even common in the Chinese community. Old and tattered copies could be found occasionally in public telephone booths but pre- sumably Chinese, like foreign- ers, relied on private lists of numbers. Now new green and white paper-bound directories are for sale at the Peking tele- communications bureau for 15 cents. As it admits on its cover, the new directory is very much a "partial" directory and. as far as the foreign community here is concerned, probably more interesting for the numbers it leaves out than for those which are listed. There are something over 10.000 numbers in the directory's 211 pages, which is sparse for an area with about seven million people. Personal numbers are en- tirely excluded. There are relatively few private telephones in Peking, where people have to have a pressing personal or professional need before they can have one of the quaintly old-fashioned Chinese telephones installed in their home.

The government language experts translated that into a lot of odd languages, Swahili and the rest. "I never had to use it, fortu- nately, but I carried it with me. "I found out something from those translations, he said. "In most of the languages the word for stranger also was the word for enemy." Glenn stood up.
