CHEC ? News on the Hour - Wthr., Sports on the Half Hour FRIDAY NIGHT 6:50 Farm and Ranch SATURDAY ed, they become petty battlefields where tlie returns aren't worth the fight. Seared most by his fists-up attitude is his babbling girl friend (Karen Black), a pretty, dense woman bora to be pushed around. The illness of Dupea's fatlier drags him to the family island house, a structure more akin to a music conservatory than a home. The once-famous father, now mute from a stroke, can only tense his eyes to communicate. A sister combines huge musical talent with a lost waif-ishness. The brother, directing the future of a beautiful protege, has polished self-importance to a high sheen. It is the protege (Susan Asp nach) who offers Dupea perhaps the final chance of love with a woman of equal brains and talent, bui unfortunately she is smart enough to see him for what he is: a bumed-out case who has lost the scope to care for anything. Nicholson, despite an annoy-'ngly monotonous voice at times, invests the character with layers of meaning and intention. Like all great actors, he can take the most common of actions and enfuse new life and significance into them. The movie itself has some fine moments: an unrelentingly condescending profile of the forced gaiety of a bowling hail; a near-caricature portrayal of an aniti-pollution nut; tlie lights and shadows of a home. What it does shuck off is the basic reason for Dupea's sudden fits of anger, for his disgust with himself and his life. Self-admittedly a pianist who was "never that good," does he flay himself because of his second-rate talent? Did he hate his family? Why did he leave home? But, despite its shortcon-Jngs, Five Easy Pieces is a good film, made exceotional bv the active artistry of Jack Nicholson. e t � NOTES: Five Easy Pieces has won four Academy Award nominations, for best picture, best actor (Jack Nicholson), best supporting actress (Karen Black) and best story not based on other material . . . Every so often one espies a show on cablevision (Channel 2. Produced by Lethbridge Cablevision Ltd., the programs, on scouting, Lethbridge Chamber of Commerce, etc., are notable if for nothing else than viewers have ro idea wh^n they are slated to run. It doesn't make much sense for the company to produce items, then keep their timing a deep, dark secret. I'he schedules may look good to the Canadian Radio-Television Commission, which has asked that cablevision put on local shows, but surely the idea is that the shows are there to be looked at. � * � There will be no radio coverage, on CBC or other stations, of the Muhammcd Ali-.loe Frazier fight next Monday. The rights-holder, former Canadian Jack Kent Cooke, has withheld all radio and TV (including delayed TV) rights to the fight. By the wav, the betting in The Herald office is going on Frazier . . . Tlie Uni' versity of Lethbridge Open House wll be held April 4 . Now that the Alberta Dance Festival is upon us and the Jii-wanis Music Festival will ar rive next month, southern Alberta residents might give a thought to backing the festivals through money scholarships. Trophies and plaques are nice for the mantelpiece, but money awards allow top-rated dance and music students to pursue their chosen fields of endeavor. The festival committees will help donors choose areas where money scholarships are needed. Lots of times these scholarships will help send a student to provincial programs in the summer, or the Banff School of Fine Plants can love and hate TORONTO (CP) - Cleve Backster, a lie detector expert from New York, says plants can love, hate, wither and die in an emotional response to the humans around them. He told the Toronto Garden Club's Spring Flower Show at the Royal Ontario Museum Studded tires ban favored WINNIPEG (CP) - There is ovei-whelming evidence to show studded tires are more of a safety hazard than a safety bonus, and they should be banned from all Canadian roads, the president of Canadian Tire Ck)rp. said here. Dean Mun caster of Toronto said in an interview the studs chew up roads making ruts in which ice foi-ms. He said the tires also destroy lane markings. Mr. Muncaster said the studs were beneficial under a limited range of driving conditions, providing better traction on ice when the temperatiu'e is dose to the freezing mark. Since Ontario will be the only province to ban the tires as of April 30, he said there will have to be provincial negotiations on interprovindal traffic.

He said he stumbled on the emotional phenomenon i n plants five years ago when he was working with a lie detector to instruct police, military and government personnel on its use. "One night I went into the lab and something told me to connect up one terminal of the polygraph to the leaf of a plant-a species of phHoden-dron. "Then I thought, I'm going to burn that leaf." He said he went out of the lab to get a match and when he returned, discovered that the polygraph tracing had skidded off the chart. "I never did light the match," he said. "The mere thought that I would burn it- the intent to do so-had caused a violent reaction in the plant. "The timing of the response was so precise that it was as if the plant was reading my mind."

Theatre Calgary's production of Strind-berg's The Father, nms to March 20 at Calgary's Allied Arts Centre. *   A new show recommended for cable TV viewers is All in the Family, running Thursdays on (^liannel 9. Starring Carroll O'Connor and Jean Staplcton, the comedy is a throwback to post-war radio shows and perhaps, The Honeymooners. Based on a British series', Till Death Do Us Part, the series is all about prejudice; mainly of the right-wing variety, although leftists get their lumps too. O'Connor is Archie, a family man who bridles a't hippies, Italians, homosexuals, blacks, Jews, anti-Nixonites, "Did you enjoy Julia," he �sked a black woman Tlim-sday night. "Did you enjoy Doris Day?" she retorts. So much for inter-racial conversation. The show is usually prefaced with narrator's pompous warning that the show is about the absurdity of prejudice, but no one needs it. All m the Family has a sense of real people and the home set has far more character than in most TV comedies. The house may be clean, but the grime is just a scrubbing away.  *  RADIO: Terry Bland, the Phone Bill Show's co-host replacement for Ed Robinson, doesn't s.eem to have found his bearings yet on the daily morning phone-in show on (DJOC. Mr. Bland offers earnest, enlightened remarks on the hospital-medical situation, but he appears to be reluctant to project his personality or add some controversy to the show. Actually Uie people who generate the most controversy are not the hosts, but the phone-in gang of right-wing ladies who figure one liberal alone is a conspiracy and two liberals in conversation is a wrld-wide revolutionary plot. Apart from the days when the ladies call or when the program features a guest, tlie show has been a bit Bland. GERMAN CANADIAN CLUB 6th ST. and 9th AVE.

Mr. Moar, a former bush pilot, said in an interview he would like to see students employed on the construction of aii'strips down the Mackenzie River Valley. When development of a pipe- line goes ahead, pumping stations will bo required at 50-mile intervals. It has already been indicated airstrips will ho required at each pumping station, he said. In addition to employing students, the airstrips would sen'a a safety function. BUILD QUICKLY A skilled Canadian Eskimo can build an igloo in less than an hour.
