Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 2, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta May 2, 1973 THE LETHMIDGI HERALD 7 Fruet film big hit NEW YORK (CP) New York movie critics give top honors to the award winning Canadian film Wedding in White, which details life in a working-class family in Canada during the Second World War. Vincent Canby, writing in The Times, describes the production as "marvellously well acted" and a "good, tough, clear-eyed film." The dialogue by William Fruet of Toronto and Leth- bridve, who wrote the script and also directed the film, was "so faultless that even the slang defines the era as much as the skirt lengths and the automobiles." Canby praises the cast and singles out Dories Petrie, who plays the mother in the film, as "a Canadian actress of unaf- fected beauty and great dis- cre Jon of gesture." Frances Herridge of The Post describes the film, produced by John Videt'e of Toronto for Der- met Productions, Toronto, as "a slice of s e e d y small-town life that comes en at times as heav- ily as a whole loaf." "All this is superbly ac'.ed, not only by Donald Pleasence, vho conveys e'.ery nuanre of the father's charac'er, but Ca- rol Kame as the girl, Deris Pet- rie as the mother right down to neighbors and friends. There isn't a false note in the direct- ing, either." Ann Guarino, writing in The News, says Wedding in White is a "realistic, engrossing drama" with an excellent cast. "Film-goers of today may be used to hearing the frank lan- guage the men use and prob- sbly will not be offended. Women lib, however, may find the1 of the women mra-e offensive. But these wem the days and Fniiet has clone a job of re-croal- ing them." Melclier amazed press chief not WASHINGTON (AP) Mon- tana's Eastern District con- gressman John Melcher says he is surpriard that presidential press secretary Ronald Ziegler was not ousted from his White House post wi'h others in the Watergate affair. Melcher, a Democrat, said Ziegler's admission in April that all of his previous s'ate- ments on Watergate were inop- erative only indicates Ziegler WBS misleading the American public. PRIVATELY-OWNED There are about 270 private- ly-owned radio stations and 60 privately-owned television sta- tions operating in Canada. Big losses anticipated by Kaiser VANCOUVER (CP) The! annual report of Kaiser Re- j sources Ltd. says that under present pricing and financial structure, "the company will continue to incur substantial losses and will be unable to meet its financing commit- ments in either 1973 or subse- quent years."

Laugh-In changed HOLLYWOOD TAP) The Man from U.N.C.L.E. was go- ing off the air at mid-season and NBC decided to take a chance with a new comedy show. Thst new show. Rowan and Martin's Laugh In, landed in January, J968. with the impact of a bucket of water in the face. It changed the language: "Sock it to "Here come de judge." Laugh In changed viewing habits. It put Beautiful Down- town Burbank on the map. Its influence was felt in advertis- ing, movies and the stage. Most of all, it changed tele- vision. Laugh-In is fading and soon will be gone, but it left the tube permanently bent in its own wacky, irreverent, free- wheeling image. BREATH OF FRESH AIR "It revolutionized said Paul originally head writer and later producer. "It loosened up what you could do and what jou couldn't do. I think before us, except for the midnight shows, television was fairly blacd." Dick Alar tin said: show TV Mental hospital uses Mao thoughts By JOHN BURNS Special to Herald group of Ca- nadian doctors learned yester- day how a Chinese mental hos- jital is using Mao Tse-tung ;hought, acupuncture and parlor ;ames to treat patients suffer- ing from schizophrenia and other psychiatric disorders. The triumphs of Mao thought were well to the fore in a visit to another Shanghai hospital, where a world-renowned sur- geon told the Canadians how a study of the chairman's works jrompted his development of a technique for reattaching se- vered fingers. Members of the Canadian Medical Association delegation toured the wards of the Shanghai Mental Hospital at the beginning of the second week of their visit to China, and came away conceding that Mao study classes might have considerable therapeutic value in the treat- ment of Chinese patients. "It's probably as effective as most of the things we use as regenerative said Jonn Evans, presiaent of the University of Toronto. "The aim of the psychiatrist is to de- velop behavior that is com- patible with the norms of society, and since this is a society governed by Maoist thought, the use of thtt thought in therapy should be eliective." Doctors at the mental hospital told the Canadians that study of the chairman's works ranks alongside occupational therapy, traditional Chinese medicine and modern drugs in the treat- ment of patients, with as much as two half-hour periods set aside each day for political study. Through the study sessions the patients are encouraged to gain an understanding of what the Chinese doctors called "ob- jective reality" rather than en- gaging in "subjective thinking." In this way they were supposed to develop the correct ideologi- cal attitude towards their ill- nesses. Discussing the matter later, Bette Stephenson, a general practitioner in Toronto, com- pared the use of Mao thought with the attempts made by western psychiatrists to involve their patients in the life of he church. She said both ap- proaches aimed at giving the patient a set of beliefs that would enable him to find his place in society. DIETRICH DENTURE CLINIC ROSS A.

It was accidental. We're proud of it. It did change tele- vision and we take credit only that we didn't start out to. Our egos don't extend that far. "All we did was make it man- datory for the audience to keep its eyes glued to the set. They couldn't leave. That was our in- tent. We gave a platform to a lot of talented people who couldn't function without this form.'' People who seldom did tele- vision clamored to be on the show to utter inane lines. Among them was Richard Nixon, Republican candidate for president in 1968. Candidate Nixon said: "Sock it to me." GAGS WORE THIN It is difficult to say exactly what caused the show to slip. Inevitably, the form became predictable. The rapid barrage of old gags, new gags, inuen- oos and inanities no longer tit- illated. "The trouble was. Laugh-In went a year too said Martin.
