Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 18, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta WOMEN IN RCMP? THERE ARE PROBLEMS OTTAWA (CP) There may be a place for women as full-fledged members of the RCMP, but the force has yet to figure out where, the Com- mons justice and legal affairs committee was told Thursday. RCMP Commissioner W. L. Higgitt, picking his words carefully, said several hun- dred "girls or young he didn't know the exact fig- already civilian members. He said they are distributed at various levels throughout the force, working as juvenile counsellors, laboratory tech- nicians and handling a vari- ety of other duties including "delicate matters when they come up." But there are problems to be overcome in making them full members of the 100-year- old force, he said. It might not be so difficult in a urban setting but the RCMP is "a very unique po- lice force" with a lot of two- member or three-member de- tachments across the country, he explained. The question he raised but left unanswered was just what would happen if male and female members of the force are posted together in. small and isolated detach- ments. "You can see the he told reporters later. He also suggested that life in some posts might be too rigorous for women. "Would a girl want to go to Pond Inlet (N.W.T.) where she might have to eat seal flippers for two or three years." He said the force is con- ducting another in a series of studies on the subject but no early solution is expected. He hoped the decision wouldnt be years in coining but de- clined to speculate when it might be. There are more than persons on the RCMP payroll, including about regular uniformed RCMP members, The rest include special con- stables, civilian members and female employees.

The new husband is unim pressed, starring with home fascination at the egg salac climbing up the nose of his bride. Somehow you get the feeling this marriage is not going to last. It doesn't. Not past Li- lah's post-climax candy bars, her Miami Beach sunburn. Len- ny escapes promptly to the glossy all-American. charms of Kelly, setting a new track rec- ord in swiftly improvised lies. Not much to build a movie on? Yet The Heartbreak kid is a crisp satire as ever came out of Hollywood. And its bite must first be attributed to director Elaine May. Miss May handles her play- ers superbly and her eye for background detail is unerring. She points the shallowness of the characters front and cen- tre, particularly in the Miami Beach sequences by peopling the screen with folks having fun but not really enjoying themselves. The effect is dev- astating. Yet there is a definite poig- nancy to this honeymoon gone haywire created in the deft script of Neil Simon. While not abandoning the frenetic pace of his string of Broadway suc- cesses, Simon has caught the flavor of fellow playwright Har- old Pinter and this work prom- ises a new depth and distinc- tion. And the players: Jeannie Berlin may be Elaine May's daughter but she is her own ac- tress. Pouting "you grouch" to Lenny, seeking virginal reas-i suranee that she is loved, chok- ing over the cause celebre pecan pie, this poor little Jew- ish girl is both maudlin and moving. Charles Grodin (Lenny) is so good in this movie, so right for the role of the pushy New York- er, and Cybill Shepherd is one of the more pleasant surprises of the current cinema. Her automatic devouring of pret- zels in toe face of Lenny's pitch before the gathering storm of her father (Eddie Albert) is a priceless vingette. The only weakness is, per- haps, in the ending, which has a vaguely disappointing quality. Yet retrospect allows agreement in that Lenny, who hi the opening sequences, was seen chewing gum with his mouth open is in the close found to be just another lilah. A very good film indeed. i. SHAMUS: That can't be said about the latest Hurt Reynolds starrer. Reynolds, who turned in a dandy performance as in Deliverance, has re- gressed to the one-line quipper who has been nauseating in too many television shows. Not hat he doesn't work hard on this one leaping and running all over Brooklyn, chasing the lame thrower killer, he is ex- laustingly energetic. The ag- gressive maleness fails to charm as does the violence hat is played against some appalling cuteness. The movie ooks nice a cash-in on the Cos- mopolitan centrefold, and the widely publicized romance with luiah Shore. Deliverance show- ed the man could act. Maybe lis next vehicle The Man Who Loved Cat Dancing will reas- sure that there's more to Rey- nolds than meets the eye. V V ZEFFIRELLI: The Italian di rector's Romeo and Juliet prov- ed quite an awakening to types unlikely to sit through Shake- speare. In Brother Sun, Sister Moon, the bard is badly missed but there's a splendour and ele- gance to this movie which wiU appeal to the sophisticated anc much sweetness to catch the hearts of the young. Graham Faulkner and Judi Bowker are immensely appealing, but a first appraisal of this story of St. Francis makes one wonder why more was not made of a balance of his life, prior to re- formation and after. Another look and more on this one next week. THE EMMYS: Johnny Car- son hosts the annual television awards Sunday night.

It's good to see the Leth- bridge Symphony and Chorus, and the Anne Campbell Singers in the lineup. Further perform- ing opportunities are always welcomed.

Zanuck and studio part company SOUTHERN ALBERTA THEATRES LOS ANGELES (Beuter) 20th Century Fox Kim. Corp. said farewell yesterday to Darryl F. Zanuek, one of Holly- wood's most famous film mag- nates. Zanuck's 38-year relationship with Fox, during which he was chief of production and later chairman until a 1970 upheaval brought in current manage- ment, officially ended when his annual contract expired this week. The 70-year-old Zanuck's last job with Fox was chairman emeritus, under which he was given a contract that required the company to supply him with a car and chauffeur, office and hotel space and secretarial as- sistance. Zanuck has been recuperating from intestinal surgery in Palm Springs, Calif. NEW YORK (Reuter) The Stuttgart Ballet opened its three-week New York engage- ment with a performance o Prokofiev's Romeo and Julie which sacrifices dance to drama, John Cranke's choreography allows for little virtuoso danc- ing, and focuses instead on Shakespeare's tragedy and nu merous fencing scenes, dying scenes and carnival jubilation. Even the love duets consisi mainly of Romeo lifting Juliei and carrying her across the Metropolitan Opera stage.

NEW YORK (AP) Duke Ellington received an honorary doctorate of music yesterday from Columbia University, where he was denied the Pulit- zer Prize in 1965. He was recommended for the Pulitzer by the music com- mittee but the Pulitzer advisory board at Columbia vetoed the recommendation and no music prize was given. Before Wednesday's gradu- ation ceremonies, Ellington was asked whether he thought Co- Barrefit expects CDC offices in Vancouver NARAMATA, B.C. (CP) Premier Dave Barrett says he is optimistic the federal govern- ment will follow through on a longstanding commitment to es- tablish the headquarters for the Canadian Development Corp. in "That belongs in Vancouver and I expect it to be Mr. Barrett said at a New Democratic Party conference at this Okanagan community. When the legislation estab- ishing the new federal crown corporation was passed in 1971, Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau ;ave a commitment the head- quarters would eventually be ocated in Vancouver. Last week, however, Finance Minister John Turner said Ot- ,awa had dropped its involve- nent in the relocation and was eaving the decision with the directors of the crown com- pany. lumbia was making amends now by granting him an honor- ary doctorate. "What has one thing got to do with the he asked "I'm a pretty good crimino- logist; I read Sherlock Holmes when I was 14, but if I thought that, I'd have to have a devious mind, wouldn't I? I would never say that about a respectable or- ganization. "It's just like I said they didn't want to make me too famous too young." Ellington is 74. Friday, May 18, 1973 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD -11 Firms not telling fthe whole story9 TORONTO (CP) The can industry las not told "the whole story" in its advertising cam- paign about recycling soft-drink cans from garbage in Ontario, says Environment Minister James Auld. Five companies sponsored full-page newspaper advertise- ments and radio and television commercials which described ways in which jnetal from dis- carded cans may be reclaimed. Mr. Auld, when asked during an interview his opinion of the advertisements, said: !'Well, they don't tell tfae whole story, do He said he did not feel his ministry is obligated to tell the rest of the story. "I have faith that people will read between the he said. The newspaper advertisement Unknown phone caller will make history OTTAWA (CP) It won't be as dramatic as mankind's first :elephone call, but some time over the next two days, an un-1 mown person will make his-1 tory. He will dial a cross-Canada elephone call, and become the 'irst to have his conversation routed through the Anik I com- munications satellite. Two Anik radio channels were integrated Thursday with the rdcrowave land lines used by he eight-member companies of the Trans-Canada telephone ystem. But because telephone sails are routed through circuits automatically, it will be impos- ible to tell who will inaugurate the east-west satellite link. There will be no perceptible ifference between a call that ravels through Anik and one hat travels over the microwave system. is entitled "the can recycling story." It says in part: "Soft drink cans now can be recycled." METHOD DESCRIBED The advertisement then de- scribes a method by which the cans are magnetically sepa- rated from trash, de-tinned and reprocessed into steel sheets. The advertisements are jointly sponsored by the Alumi- num Co. of Canada, American Can of Canada Ltd., Continental Can Co. of Canada Ltd., Domin- ion Foundries and Steel Ltd. and the Steel Co. of Canada Ltd.
