"You look at them and you know if they love you or hate you." For 22 of her 38 years, Miss Reynolds has been an actress, singer and comedienne. She is far from the Tammy girl of her earlier years and, perhaps just as far from what she wants ultimately to be. It was the movie and song Tammy that made her reputation. "It was very good in my career when it happened," she said. "But it was very difficult to overcome because Hollywood categorizes. I was the girl next door, the sweet nothing." That image gradually faded as Miss Reynolds piled up movie credits, including an Academy Award nomination for The Unsinkable Molly Brown, and did her own network television show. Miss Reynolds described her Las Vegas act as "the last of vaudeville.1' There' is a little singing, a little dancing, a little comedy and whole lot of Debbie Reyrolds." DEBBIE REYNOLDS -Thundoy, March 11. 1971 - THE LETHBRIDGE HERAID - 7 Deny Jesus Christ married VATICAN CITY (AP) - The Vatican weekly magazine dismissed today two recent theories that Jesus Christ was married for an hallucination. L'Osservatore della Domenica took issue with a book by American author William Phipps who recently wrote that Christ was "quite possibly" married, and another by Englishman John Allegro which said Christ existed only in the minds of men influ-enced by an hallucinatory mushroom. The weekly took note of Phipps' view that Christ proba- bly married because in the custom of His time which held that whoever did not marry diminished himself in the eyes of God. Phipips' book, which came out recently, was entitled Was Jesus Married? Phipps is a Presbyterian minister. O'Osservatore said: "In fact the Gospel shows clearly thai Christ was anything but conditioned by the cultural and religious atmosphere of His Time. Christ is not a person who reacted according to pre-established patterns." RE-ELECTED HEAD TORONTO (CP) - John Bulloch of Toronto was elected for a second term Tuesday night as president of the Canadian Council for Fair Taxation, a group he founded in 1969 to protest changes proposed in the federal government's white paper on tax reform. YOUR PHILIPS' DEALER WITH SERVICE I Anil* RADIO and TV JHUY 3 302 13th St. N. Glover 20 years on air TORONTO (CP) - The memories and nostalgia of two decades in Canadian entertainment bubbled all over the place as the CBC's Elwood Glover recently celebrated the 20th anniversary of his daily radio program, At Ease. Faces, voices and music of the past combined during a telecast of Luncheon Date, Mr. Glover's daily TV program, as old friends and fellow workers turned out for the celebration. There was Terry Dale, who co-starred with Mr. Glover in a series called Musical Kitchen which replaced The Happy Gang, and band leader Howard Cable. Mona O'Heam and Peggy Loder, who worked with Mr. Glover on an old CBC soap opera called John and Judy, were there. So were former broadcaster June Dennis and SOUTHERN ALBERTA THEATRES CARDSTON - Mayfair Theatre "KELLY'S HEROES" - In Technicolor. Starring Donald Sutherland, Clint Eastwood and Don Rickles.

The casual Mr. Glover surprised his audience by bursting into an inspired duet (I'm Much Older Than You) with Miss Dale, and shocked some of his older fans with the wistful observation, "We couldn't even say fuddle-duddle in those days." Mr. Glover's regular radio series began in 1951 when he was called in to replace "temporarily" the former announcer. Mike Wood, on a program called Off The Record. He continued in his "temporary" role until 1968 before he received official confirmation of his appointment. "It just got lost in the shuffle all years," he said. "I think I just got overlooked for 17 years, and the whole thing sneaked through." Eight years ago the same thing happened with his TV program. Luncheon Date began as a casual throwaway, and now is experiencing its most popular season. Mr. Glover who was raised in Moose Jaw, Sask., said his greatest satisfaction "is that I've been able to stay in a business I love so much for as long as I have." "I've never been a high-pressure guy, and I've always felt there had to be an audience somewhere for a low-pressure guy." After the 20-year run of At Ease, it would seem he is right. HE OWES ROLE TO ALI _ Ryan O'Neal got his role in "Love Story", which brought him on Oscar nomination, because his co-star, Ali MacGraw, with whom he's pictured, told Paramount he could play it best. In a candid evaluation, he said ho wasn't sure he would be nominated because most of the publicity went to Miss MacGraw. She was nominated for best actress award.
