Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 28, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Sex radio shows singe airwaves LOS ANGELES (AP) In Washington, D.C., it's called topless radio. In Oakland it's California Girls. In Minneapo- lis St. Paul it's Girl Talk. In Los Angeles, where sex- oriented phone-in radio shows originated two years ago, it's The BUI Ballance Feminine Forum. Ballance's show is syn- dicated to more than 50 cities in the United States, Canada and Australia. All in all, it adds up to some of the most sexually revealing and provocative talk ever to singe the air waves. The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) said early this month it has been flooded with complaints demanding that it halt the spread of blue radio. Ballance's show is the No. 1 listener rated show in Los An- geles, a position it reached in less than a year after starting in January, 1971. The daily topics for the femi- nine callers on the Ballance show range from .'incest" to "do you experience fear to "How do you play when your man's Why are women ready to tel all on the air? Ballance, 54, twice divorced and the father of two grown sons, said in an earlier inter- iew: "I think they're lonely. "Loneliness has got to be the jreatest common denominator n a cily like this. They don't lave anyone who is ready to ILs- en to them. They know I'm lis- ening to them." The letters of complaint to -he FCC about shows aroirU he country use such descrip- tions as 'poor taste" and "oral and im- moral pollution." Nearly 'all the shows are broadcast in the morning until early afternoon. The FCC in a form letter an- swering most complaints points out that the agency cannot cen- sor what is broadcast but pro- mises to look for a possible regulatory test case in the courth. Scott Burton of WWDC, Wash- ington, who is called "the titan of topless said the au- dience response has been both good and bad. "Some say that kind of stuff shouldn't be on the he said, and others say: "It's educational, it's normal to find out things we should know."

They don't Vaise BOSTON (Reuter) Vice-1 President Spiro Agnew de- ended his friendship with 'rank Sinatra yesterday and said they did not go around 'raising hell together." He was asked in an interview with ths 'CXiristiari Science Monitor about speculation that ils friendship with Sinatra: was driving a wedge between liim and President Nixon. "That is a ridiculous asser- ion in view of the fact that Mr. Sinatra is going to perform at he White House this month and in view of the fact that the resident said absolutely noth- ng about the vice-presi- dent replied. "This is simply what you might call peripheral gossip that comes out of the lower ech- elons of the While House staff who really are not informed on what is going on." Reports that the vice-presi- dent's association with Sinatra was responsible for coolness to- wards him by the president and by White House officials fol- lowed an incident in Washington during Nixon's inaugural cele- bration last January. Sinatra insulted a Washington society columnist, allegedly calling her a "two-bit broad" and using a four-letter word. OFTEN A GUEST A.cnew has often been a guest of Sinatra at the plush desert resort of Palm Springs, Califor- nia. "There's a certain aura sur- rounding my friendship with Si- natra that seems to create the illusion that this is a highly di- versionary avant garde social he said in the in- terview. "Every lime I see Mr. Si- natra my wife is with me. We together to visit. We live a very mundane existence in Palm Springs with respect to the ideas that are promulgated about partying and that sort of tiling." "I just thought that in view that everybody thinks that Frank Sinatra and 1 are i-oing around raising hell not'so. And I get along ex- tremely well with him. I res- pect and admire'him very much. He's been a very friend. And I'm not about to lot i any rumors Interfere with my right to select my own friends. I feel that ought to be said." DIETRICH DENTURE CLINIC ROSS A.

Late Sir Noel Coward was jack-of-all-trades By ALBIN KREBS New York Times Service "The world has treated me very Sir Noel Coward once said, adding quickly, "but then I haven't treated it so badly, either." The remark, typically free of self-effacement, actually con- stituted fair comment. For, in his 60 years as a theatrical jack-of-all-trades (and master of the urbane Sir Noel gave the world unstintingly of what he called "a talent to amuse." He wrote 27 comedies, dram- 'as and musicals for the stage, the best-known of which were "Private "Blithe Spir- "Cavlacade" and "Bitter- sweet." COULDN'T READ NOTES Among the 281 songs for which he provided words and music the fact he could not read notes did not deter him were several that have become standards, including "Someday I'll Find "I'll See You "Mad About The Boy" and "Mad Dogs and English- men." Of Iiis films, the moat mem- orable were the Second 'Jorld War epic of courage, In Which We and "Brief En- still considered one of the finest movies made on the subject of romantic love. The multl talented Sir Noe often acted in, directed ant produced his own plays and Tilms, and in the 1950s, whei interest in his stage work re- ceded, if only temporarily, hi turned to the new career o cabaret performer. By then, however, he had es tablished himself as a major spokesman, in the dramatic arts, of an era those two decades between tw world wars during a gen eration of chic, smart talking young people delighted in shock ing their Victorian elders. DISTURBING IMPACT His plays of that time woulc hardly cause a stir in today' anything goes theatre, but ii the '20s and '30s they had disturbing impact. Because he often dealt with amoral characters who used mildly profane language and dared talk about sex, Sir Noel's plays ran into censorship troub- les. There were also objections to the Jact that most of lus stage characters were rich, polled, neurotic, vain, snobbish and selfish, but he managed make them bearable and ven attractive by putting into heir mouths a seemingly end- ess string of quips and witti- Lsins. In many ways, Sir Noel's per- onal lile and his personality re- embled those of his fabricated -haracters. He was witty, gen- erous, jaded, mercurial, sophis- icated, lonely, snobbish. Sir Ncel gave the appearance being a great bon vivant, in- labiting a world of celebrity n which he enjoyed the loyal and scintillating friendship of such pei-sons as Sir Winston Churchill, Franklin D. Roose- velt, Lynn Fontanne, George 3emard Shaw, Gary Grant, Marlene Dietrich and Beatrice Jjllie. This was an important aspect of his life. Yet he was a sell- described "loner" who said, couldn't live all the time with another person male or fe- male; I was born alone, I have lived alone more or less, ant I'll die alone." He often felt i necessary tp cut himself of: from everyone he knew and take a long, slow freighter trip to South America, Hie Orien Hawaii.
