APPEARING TONIGHT AT VENTURA TAVERN 'LINDA' RAE ROGERS NO LONGER RIDES TRIGGER APPLE VALLEY, Calif. (AP) idol Roy Rogers no longer rides his horse Trigger. But he has a beat-up truck he uses for friendly visits into town from the adobe ranch house where a big Bible is always open on the table. "I get around just can't go killing says the 61-year-old Rogers. He suf- fered a mild heart attack 15 years ago and had another recently. "But I expect to keep right on doing what I'm doing until I'm he said in an interview. Rogers lives on a 67-acre horse ranch near Apple Valley, a desert community. In the stables are 30 thoroughbreds, including the colt Triggaro, which Rogers says has never been out of the money. During a 30-year film career Rogers starred in 87 Westerns and 101 television shows, al- ways with horse Trigger, usu- ally with dog Bullet and mostly with wife Dale Evans. Dale, 59, and Rogers are still together. But Trigger Bul- let have been stuffed and mounted, and are on display in the couple's "personal mu- seum." ROY ROGERS Rogers once said: "When I die, I may be stuffed and put up there right alongside them.' New ventures on the drawing boards, Rogers says, are a million Roy Rogers Western World at nearby VictorviUe and a series of old Westerns he will package for television. The couple plans a swing this summer on the rodeo and state fair circuit. In recent years, the two have appeared at Christian and anti-Communist crusades. And Dale is writing her 13th one on a recent trip she took through the Holy Land. The Rogers have 15 grand- children, including several by previous marriages. Dale was married once, Roy twice, before their marriage New Years Eve in 1947. The Rogers say religious faith has played a big role in their lives. They often kneel in prayer. They say personal faith is vi- tal: Roy says he and agent Art Rush have never had a contract in their 33 years together. "Never needed one. Our word is our bond.' 50 years in film business By BOB THOMAS BURBANK, Calif. (AP) It all began with a bicycle shop run by four brothers in Young- stown, Ohio. Today Warner Bros, does a million busi- ness yearly bringing movie, television and music entertain- ment to the world. Fifty years ago last month, Sam, Harry, Albert and Jack Warner formed Warner Bros. Pictures Inc. Their successors have planned a year-long cele- bration of the event, starting with the appearance of five new films at the Cannes Film Festi- val this month. One of the founding brothers remains: Jack L. Warner, who sold his interest in the company in 1966 and became an inde- pendent producer. We are very hopeful that he will take part in the celebra- said a company execu- uve, "and he has indicated that he will." J. L. could scarcely resist. He is the last link to a colorful chapter in entertainment his- tory. In his autobiography, My First Hundred Years in Holly- wood. Warner told how the fam- ily entered the film business in 1903: "We heard there was a car- nival coming up in Niles, only a few miles away, and Sam ren- ted an empty store there on a main street. When the carnival opened, we were ready for busi- ness. Albert sold tickets, Rose (a sister) played the piano while I sang illustrated songs, and Sam ran the projector. "At the end cf the week we counted our receipts, and we had That convinced the brothers to abandon their bicycle shop and move into the growing movie business. They started a distributing company in Pitts- burgh, then in 1912 decided there was more money in mak- ing films. They began produc- ing in St. Louis and California. Their first big hit came in 1917, when they released My Four Years in Germany, based on the experiences of Ambassa- dor James W. Gerard. Shortly after forming Warner Bros. Pictures in 1923, Jack Warner discovered their first big star a German shepherd named Rin Tin Tin. PIONEER TALKIES Warner Bros, was only a mi nor threat to the big film com- panies until Oct. 6, 1927. That was the day of the premiere in New York of The Jazz Singer, in which Al Jolson spoke in the first major talking film. The film started the revolution from silents to talkies, and Warner Bros, had a head start. In 1929, the company turned out 81 movies, most of them forgettable. But the 1930s brought the real flowering of Warner Bros. More than any other studio, Warners caught the temper of the times. The gangster era was depicted in Little Caesar and Public Enemy. Musicals like 42nd Street and the Gold- diggers series captured the brassy tempo of the 1930s. The American social conscience was LCI.

The Warners stars seemed to possess more vitality than those I of other studios: Bette Davis, Humphrey Bogart, James Cag- ney, Edward G. Robinson, Er- rol Flynn, Paul Muni, Pat O'Brien, Dick Powell, Joan Btandell. Warners portrayed the grow- ing German menace with Con- fessions of a Nazi Spy. During the Second World War, the stu- dio turned out a host of war films. Prosperity continued Into the post-war years with such hits as Treasure of the Sierra Madre, A Streetcar Named Desire, The Nun's Story, Who's Afraid of Virginia My Fair Lady, Bonnie and Clyde. But in the 3960s it seemed ap- parent that Jack Warner had lost his enthusiasm for guiding a film company through trou- bled new times. He sold his in- terest to Seven Arts, which in 1969 sold out to Kinney National Service. The new management has led the company to new highs of in- come: million in 1972 for a profit of million. Recent film hits have bean Woodstock, and Summer of '42, Klute and A Clockwork Orange.

TORONTO (CP) A resolu- tion calling for at least 60 per cent of the entertainment head- liners at the Canadian National Exhibition (CNE) to be Cana- dians has been endorsed by the Metropolitan Toronto coun- cil executive committee. The resolution is not binding on the CNE board of directors. David G-arrick, general man- ager of the annual exhibition, said that of all the performers hired, not just fliose for the main grandstand show, about 90 to 95 per cent of the talent is Canadian. Aid. Ben Nobleman of the borough of York, sponsor of the resolution, said 90 per cent of the headline talent is from tho United States. He commended Stompln' Tom Connors, the Canadian singer, I for refusing to appear at the, CNE this year "because they j left it too late and refused to pay him as much as American performers." i___ FAMILY paramount Ml St. 40) AM Sooth. 327-6100 NOW SHOWING Thru TUES. Television pirates slash red tape OTTAWA (CP) -The tele- vision pirates of Ross Rivev, Y.T., likely will.become legal before long. The community of about 300 kidnapped a CBC television signal early in April with the aid of a home-made TV relay station that pulls in a station at Faro, Y.T., 40 miles away. A representative of the Ca- nadian Radio-Television Com- mission (CRTC) visited Ross River recently to advise the pirates on the procedure to be followed in legalizing their rebroadcasting station. And the commission is "very sympathetic" towards the project, which Is illegal under the Broadcasting Act. When the CBC instituted its new northern service, using Teksat Canada's Anik I com- munications satellite, Ross River was 200 people short of the requirement for the serv- ice. Its residents, disgusted at bureaucracy and red tape, would have been stymied, ex- cept for Al Kulan, Ross River's millionaire mining prospector. He took the problem to an engineering firm and dis- covered that a nearby hilltop was the ideal spot for a re- broadcast relay to pull in the Faro signal. The residents worked on an access road and Mr. Kulan spent of his own money to build the relay. A CRTC spokesman said the station needs a technical certificate, which should not be too difficult to obtain, .be- fore it can be licensed. And even if it doesn't receive approval Al Ku- lan got to watch the Stanley Cup playoffs in color this year. DIETRICH DENTURE CLINIC ROSS A.
