Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 25, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 6-THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Monday, March 25, 1974 New Hochhuth play aimed at NATO By CHRIS CATLIN BONN (Reuter) Rolf Hochhuth, whose plays at- tacking Pope Pius XH and. Winston Churchill caused a furore in the 1960s, has sin- gled out American' influence in Europe as the target of his latest work, Lysistrata and NATO. Hochhuth's bawdy, modern- day version of the Aristo- phanes comedy marks a sharp departure from his sombre but provocative dramas set in the Second World War. But it deals with similar moral and political issues, as the author made plain recently when he described the central theme as "war and peace." The setting is an unnamed Greek island shortly before the 1967 colonels' takeover, and the heroine is a radical Athens parliamentarian who persuades a group of her countrywomen to stop their husbands selling land to NATO by withholding their fa- vors until the men give up the idea. Her argument is a simple one: "No Russian would even cast a glance at our island if the Americans didn't make us a 'present' of some rockets. A major power, whose security is not our problem, wants to make our island into a light- ning conductor." It is a message which would hardly be lost on a West Ger- man audience, but just to make sure Hochhuth derides this country directly, in what appears to be his own running commentary to the play, for tolerating a situation in which not even its defence minister has a say in the use of U.S. atomic weapons in Europe. And Lysistrata herself makes no bones about her feelings towards the United States after reading a maga- Cash crisis hits Global Television TORONTO CCP) Advertising on the new Global Television Network has fallen about 35 per cent behind expectations, causing a financial crisis and moving founder Al Bruner out of his post as chief executive officer. Peter Hill, Global's board chairman, said Friday.; Mr. Bruner retains his title of president but will concentrate on selling advertising on the network which began serving southern and eastern Ontario Jan.6. Mr. Hill who takes over as chief executive officer, said the network is looking for a loan of about million to pull it through until the next season begins in September. In a letter to shareholders, the company blames its problems on the switch to daylight time in the United States. Ontario's failure to follow suit, the uncertain economic outlook recently and the time required to change Ontario's viewing habits. The switch to daylight time put Everything Goes, the network's prime evening variety show which cost million for 100 episodes, in competition with Johnny Carson. Everything Goes did poorly in the January ratings as did World Hockey Association games. INDIA'S MISSIONARY TO CANADA Dr. A. B.

"There are enough anti- Semites she ex- claims, "Do they now have to blame the Jews for dis- covering Besides preaching a "Yanks go home" doctrine, or at least warning smaller nations to steer clear of the big power blocs, Hochhuth takes a stab at the way foreign workers, among them Greeks from Ly- sistrata 's island, are treated in West Germany. He calls them coolies for the economic hoom. Mixed in with the politics there is plenty of ribald hu- mor and bedroom situation comedy, a treatment typified by stage directions which call for one actress to display "as much naked bosom as the vice squad (and the quality of the bosom) permit." The 42-year-old author has been in Essen watching re- hearsals, expressing his views on the way the play should be produced, and making what he calls "a series of important changes" in the script before the first night. It is 11 years since Hoch- huth's The Representative was first staged, a play which earned him an international name. Many were startled by its critical examination of Pope Pius XII and his failure to speak out against the Nazi persecution of the Jews. The controversy has in a sense been revived by the trial of American author Robert Katz and Italian film pro- ducer Carlo Ponti, on charges of defaming the same pope by saying he did nothing to stop Nazi reprisals against Ital- ians. Hochhuth's second play Sol- diers criticized the saturation bombing of Germany during the Second World War and implied that Sir Winston Churchill hand in the death in an air crash of Polish leader General Sikorski. Operation ALBANY, N.Y.

Lucille .Ball keeps making additions. She has much to say for herself these days as'star of the film musical Mame. During a week's promotion tour here she averaged 40 interviews a day. Some of those were due, she said, to her decision to end her weekly television series, Here's Lucy, the most recent of her shows. "Kids were calling up saying, 'Don't go off the air.' I have enough reruns to keep them going until they have she said. The strawberry-redhead, whose age is given as anywhere from 61 to 65, depending on the source, appeared on television for more than 20 years and did a Broadway play in 1960. Her last film was Yours, Mine and Ours with Henry Fonda in 1968. "Family scripts are hard to find and they're what I look she said. "Some people should be ash- amed of the -things they're doing today. Look at Marlon Brando. That someone of his stature should appear in Last Tango (in Paris) is disgusting. "People know better than to send me scripts like some of the stuff that is out-and-out ri- diculous." Lucy has six years left on her contract with CBS and may do some specials for the network. She isn't saying what the future holds. But she will talk about the kind of series she pioneered for TV. "We filmed in four days and had the most routine, easy schedule anyone ever had in television. I lean very heavily on nepotism! My children work for me. My writers have been with the show 20 years. It's a business I know and it's simple to me now. I hate to Gall ra halt to it. "But I want very much to help sell Mame and that will take time. You can't just run off and do it in a weekend. It takes 'a mbli'th or so at a time." Trips to Tokyo and London are planned as part of the film's promotion. Then she will return to husband Gary Morton, and one of their three Beverly Hills, Palm Springs or the condominium at Snomass near Aspen, Colo. ALSO ENTERTAINERS She is proud that her children are working. Desi Jr.. 21, is appearing in films, and Lucie. 24. will do a road tour of the musical Seesaw. But the woman who started her career in a chorus line, did radio serials, posed for ciga- rette ads and appeared in leggy films of the 1940s won't admit to being a business genius. "I found out long ago you had to delegate authority. You rely on what you know is reliable. I have been lucky enough to sustain the friendship of people that I trust absolutely, and I wouldn't make a move without them. "There's no possibility of my being a business genius.; I wish I was. I know my know my show and my people. I don't pretend to know how to take charge of it all." She and first husband, Desi Arnaz, also got 100-per-cent residuals on the show I Love Lucy. It made them rich. They were among the first to insist their show should be filmed in Los Angeles. "We wanted to stay home. We'd been married 10 years, were about to have a baby and we didn't want to come to New York. People think of my first husband as a Cuban bongo player.
