Tuesday, May 9, 1973 THE LETHBRIDCfi HERALD 7 Behind the scenes Prime Minister Trudeau receives a final pat behind the scenes from make-up girl Leslie Haynes prior to a television appearance in Toronto. Press still upsets PM OTTAWA (CP) Since the i election last fall, there has been t a consensus among reporters that Prime MMnister Trudeau has adopted a more conciliatory attitude toward the media than he was given credit for pre- viously. But he showed during a week- end tour cf Ontario that he still has his testy moments. Friday nisht at a Liberal party reception in Toronto, he was visibly annoyed when asked why his wife, Margaret, left the room suddenly, looking pale and strained, midway through his speech. "Oh he said without stepping, then disappeared into an elevator, adding only that he hcpsd she was all right. It was left to aides to explain that Mrs. Trudeau was bothered by television lights. The next day, in a television interview, he criticized a pho- tographer for shcoting a picture LADIES' AUXILIARY TO THE Lefhbridge Minor Hockey Association 1st Annual iPRING FROLIC SOCIAL and DANCE SATURDAY, MAY 12fh 9 p.m. to 1 a.m. CIVIC SPORTS CENTRE GYM 1 Refreshments available Lunch will be served Music by "4 HITS A MISS" TICKETS: per couple.

OUTCOME IN DOUBT He did not mention that the election results at that point in- dicated a saw-off between the Liberals and Conservatives and his visit to Government" House should have been interpreted in a number cf ways. Saturday night at North Bay, the press upset him. again when a CBC sound man slipped on stage to move a microphone from a table, where the prime minister was sitting, to a lec- tern where he got up each time to answer questions from the audience. "What's tills m icrophone doing he asked, then won a burst of applause from the audience by moving it abruptly back to the table. The sound man said later he had been told Mr. Trudeau would speak only at the table and had arranged with the chairman to move the micro- phone if there were any change in plans. When the chairman did not move it to the lectern, he said, he shifted it himself. ANSWER IMPORTANT "It's as though my other an- swers weren't Mr. Trudeau said. "This (answer) is the only one that matters." Earlier Saturday, he got the best of ths press in a way that few regretted. He left many reporters and equipment laden cameramen flagging in his wake as he jog- ged briskly through the last half cf a 3.2-mile course he covered in a Miles for Million charity march in Toronto. "He sets a hell cf a pace." one of them said later. "We should have given him the cam- eras to carry.'' soulii mm MUMS MOVIES 'YOU' LIKE BEST CARDSTON Mayfair Theatre "YOU'LL LIKE MY MOTHER" In Technicolor.

Prc'iest demands more Canadian talent at CNE TORONTO (CP) A protest demanding more Canadian tal- ent for the Canadian National Exhibition was held at city hall where thousands of persons 'fin- ished their Miles for Millions walk. Ben Nobleman, a York bor- ough alderman and president of a group called the Society for Recognition of Canadian Tal- ent, said: "We collected more than names. And they came from many parts of Canada." He said the only Canadian group at the CNE this year will be the Guess Who rock band from Winnipeg. Western music fans of Stom- pin' Tom Connors as well as demonstrators from the Corn- mi tlee for An Independent Can- ada also ioined the orotest. Ape pictures producer heaves sigh of relief LOS ANGELES (AP) Ar- thur Jacobs, who has made mil- lions with talking apes, is say- ing farevyell to the creatures with a mixture of relief and re- gret. Relief, because his five Planet of the Apes movies have been complicated productions requiring more ingenuity with each one. Regret, because the films have been the producer's biggest successes. "Naturally, I'm fond of the Emmy awards split into two shows NEW YORK (AP) The Na- tional Academy of Television Arts and Sciences this year is giving its Emmy awards in two separate for enter- tainment and the other for news achievements. The entertainment awards- voted on by members of the TV entertainment be given out May 20 in Los Ange- les in ceremonies broadcast by the ABC television network. Two days later, CBS will tele- vise Emmy news-awards cere- monies here. Judges were TV critics from newspapers around the country. They convened in Chicago late in April to view the entries and cast ballots. Broadcast journalists weren't invited to participate in the vot- ing for Emmy news awards be- cause of possible conflict-of-in- terest, said academy officials. The idea of TV critics as judges was endorsed by the net- works and recommended by the journalism school professors who have judged TV news for the academy in the past. BALTIMORE (AP) Blaze Starr, the West Virginia farm girl and car hop who became one of the foremost American burlesque dancers, said Sunday she has signed a contract for a book about her life. Miss Starr said This is My Life will be published by Prae- ger Publishers Inc., and written by Huey Perry. She said it will also contain an introduction by her mother.

"Besides, I have other films I want to make. I don't want to keep turning out apes pictures like Charlie Chans or Tarzans. "In both those cases, the first five or so of the series were ex- cellent. Then, as the series fell into other hands, they became routine and not so good. I'd rather quit while we're ahead." The producer has been finish- ing up The Battle for the Plan- ets of the Apes, which will be in theatres this summer. That doesn't mean the end of the "apes." They'll be re-released in theatres for years to come. And Jacobs has given 20th Cen- tury-Fox rights to develop a television series. INSPIRED BY KOXG Jacobs, who was press agent for Marilyn Monroe, Gregory Peck and" other stars before turning producer, said the ape movies started in Paris in 19C3. "Literary agents asked me what I was looking for, and I said 'I wish King Kong hadn't been made so I could make it." One of the agents told him of a new book by Pierre Boulle, who wrote Bridge Over the River Kwai. It was a story of a futuristic planet occupied by in- telligent apes. After a series cf talks by stu- dio heads the producer decided he needed a star to sell the package. He sent a script to Marlon Brando, who said he didn't understand it. Charlton Heston did, but Richard Zanuck, then produc- tion boss at 20th Century-Fox, said: "Nobody will believe Charlton Heston talking to an ape." Jacobs had Franklin Schaff- ner direct a 10-minute scene of Heston talking to Edward G. Robinson in ape makeup. Za- nuck was sold. The film was made for S53 Robinson. The makeup gave him claustrophobia, and he withdrew from the cast.

Speaking on the CTV program Question Period, Pierre Juneau laid there must be a better way of evaluating a radio station's programming to see that it is producing what it promised. "We've seen too many people, and we still see it, who promise all kinds of things but then the facts lead them to a different policy after a few he said. He refused to name specific stations. "If you are going to take li- cences away jou've got to de- velop a better system of eval- uating precisely, not just in general said Mr. Juneau. He said that the policy pro- posal on private FM radio an- nounced April 19 is aimed at producing "greater quality and greater diversity" in private ra- dio. Mr. Juneau, recently a p- pointed to a second seven-year term as CRTC chairman, saic that FM licences under the pro- posed policy will go to people who show they can provide "something different" from commercial AM radio. Mr. Juneau said licences un- der the new policy not bo denied people who already own commercial AM radio stations. "It might be better in order to achieve thiy goal to give the licence to an existing operator who perhaps could afford tc provide diversity of service.
