Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 21, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Thursday, March THE LETH8RIDGE HERALD 13 Former Huntley-Brinkley team won all major TV news awards BOZEMAN, Mont. (AP) Former television newscaster Chet Huntley, who teamed with David Bnnkley for 14 years on NBC-TV's evening Huntley Brinkley Report, died Wednesday Huntley, 62, had been sutler- ing from lung cancer He had been undergoing periodic treatment and underwent surgery in January.' Huntley resigned from NBC in 1970 to develop Big Sky Inc. of Montana, a massive resort and ski area in the Gallatin Canyon southwest of Bozeman. Huntley and Brinkley were accidentally teamed by NBC at the 1956 United States political conventions Besides top ratings, Huntley-Brinkley won every major U.S television news award, including seven Emmies and two George Foster Peabody awards. Huntley was the serious one, Brinkley the wit. When Huntley quit in 1970 to return to his native Montana, Bnnkley said it was at last easier to tell which was which When people asked him whether he was Chet Huntley, Brinkley could now say "No, ma'am, he is the one out West on the horse Huntley was born in Car- dwell, Mont., son of a tele- grapher He won a scholarship to Montana State College in 1929. Three years of pre-medical school led nowhere. Then he won a national oratory contest and a scholarship to the Cornish School of Arts in Seattle, Wash, in 1932. He switched to the University of Washington the following year and "since my dad was only working two days a week in the depression" he supported himself by working as a waiter, telegram delivery boy, window washer and by selling pints of his blood. In 1934 he got a job with a 100-watt radio sta- tion, KCBC, in Seattle. There was no wire so he bought a Seattle Star and rewrote it for a 15-mmute newscast every night. In 1938 he went to CBS in Los Angeles as correspondent for 11 Western states. In 1951 he switched to ABC in Los Angeles, and four years later moved to NBC in New York. When Huntley went back to Montana there was talk of his running for the U.S. Senate. But he said he found Mike Mansfield was going to run again and "you'd be an idiot to run against Mansfield In Montana Instead, he did TV com- mercials, taped a radio show, and promoted Big Sky a rich man's resort. Huntley was married twice. He had two daughters by his first wife, Ingrid Rohn. They were divorced in 1959. His sec- ond wife was Tipton Stringer, once a weather lady for a Washington TV station. New Zealand residents winter prospects dreary Chet Huntley lung cancer victim By ALAN HARMAN CP Correspondent WELLINGTON, NZ (CP) The fuel crisis, coupled with an electricity shortage, gives prospect of a dreary winter for New Zealanders. Already the sale of gasoline is banned from midday Saturday until 7a m. Monday. And the government has The Easy Choice. The smooth taste of quality that is unmistakably Seagram's. Seagram's FIVE STAR Canada's largest-selling rye whisky. Blended and bottled Joseph E. Seagram Sons, Ltd., Waterloo, Ont. warned that by April motorists and boat operators will face bans on travel. Motorists can expect earless Sundays by April. These will take the form of bans on the use of vehicles on Sunday afternoons and o'n evenings every second Sunday. On top of this a shortage of electricity is already hitting home. Allocations of electricity to regional distribution authorities have been cut, resulting in cuts in water heating in several areas of the country. The country's one-channel, government operated television system now closes down at 10 p.m. as another conservation measure Two reasons are given for the shortage of electricity. One is a prolonged drought, which has left the storage lakes at their lowest levels ever The other is the fuel crisis, which has resulted m oil-fired generating stations being closed down. Neon advertising signs have been severely restricted. Businesses can only have one sign on and only during normal business hours. The oil and electricity short- ages have given new life to New Zealand's coal industry The government is pushing the conversion of oil-fired .machinery in industry back to natural gas and coal. Coal is one energy source of which the country has plenty in both islands and the govern- ment is increasing production of operating mines and reopening others The government is also pro- moting development of natural gas from two giant offshore fields The shortage of fuel and electricity has led to a row between the country's two main political parties. The Labor government con- tends it inherited the problems from the previous National government. The National party says the government had plenty of time to avoid the situation. And the Opposition notes that only a little more than half of the country's oil imports come from the sensitive Middle East area so cuts should only amount to half the 15 per cent claimed by the government. mdsor, one of eight elegant styles by Revelstoke Companies Ltd., 1602 3rd Awmw S., Alberta Phoiw 327-5777 KrUCQEnMYOURIOIIEYIIEHIIIKD Rugged Individuals Team Up!
