Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 19, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 8 THB ICTHBRIDGE HERAID Saturday, May 19, 1973 TV critics rap Jalna saga LONDON (CP) British television viewers had their first taste Thursday of the CBC's Whiteoaks of Jalna saga and the critical reaction so far is one of caustic hilar- ity. "I for says Daily Mir- ror critic Mary Malone, "will take a long time to forget im- mortal lines such as: 'Oh God, why can't things be the way they used to "Mind you, give credit to those canny Canadian writers who know the fallibility of memory. They drummed home every line so that ev- erybody echoed everybody else: 'You must sell Jalna.' At this dialogue rate, The Mirror critic concludes, the serial should run 25 years. The production is being shown here on the Thames commercial channel in the 13 episodes which were all that the CBC made before decid- ing to call it a day, or as Nancy Banks-Smith in The Guardian puts it, "before the man in the white coat came.' 'COLLISION SUSPECTED Miss Banks-Smith, ahighly- respected TV critic, says Jalna looks as though the Forsyte Saga and Peyton Place "had collided most messily." "It really is a very nasty accident one hardly knows which piece of dead dialogue to pick up first." The Guardian critic sums up the first episode thus: "The family briefly, consists IISI E E I E 128-1241 of Renny who Is haughty and Meggy who is potty and Dilly who is randy and Granny who is ghastly. I like Maurice though. The exigencies of the plot required him to rush in shouting 'Its war' or 'It's Right from the start, she says, she suspected something because Jalna was "most dreadfully infested with muicians, always a bad sign." "Jalna had musicians the way most houses have mice." TAKE THIS COUPON TO BETTER HEARING DEALER HEAR FOR YOURSELF. WITHOUT OBLIGATION.

Phone 328-4080 Day near ior quake predictions EDMONTON (CP) A Unit- ed States scientist says it may soon be to scientifi- cally predict major earthquakes years before they happen. Dr. Lynn Sykes, associate professor of geology at the La- ment Doherty Geological Ob- at Columbia Univer- sity in New York city, says the social implications of such pre- dictions still have to be ironed out. 'In a limited sense, we should be able to predict earth- quakes within the next few he said in a speech at the University of Alberta. "They (the predictions) will be crude at first and we must be care- ful how we do it socially. We don't want to create panic and more havoc." Dr. explained that earthquakes give off warning signals such as changes in the level cf the land, the flow of water and electrical conductiv- ity. The speed of seismic waves also decreases. The signals would be evident a few months before a minor quake and several years before a major disaster, Dr. Sykes said. "Then, just before the earth- quake, there is a quiet the calm before the storm." The field of research is rela- tively new and the problem of pinpointing the exact time of the quakes remains to be solved. Dr. Sjkes said he picked out three high-risk areas in Alaska and six months later there was an earthquake In one of them, near Sitka. "But the timing was coinci- dental I couldn't have said when it would happen."

Mingling among art patrons were about 35 Eskimo artists. Their numbers were bolstered by delegates to a conference in Ottawa and northern students living here. The collection of more than 400 pieces of stone, bone and ivory is being shown for the ninth and last time. The show opened in Vancouver in 1971 and since then has appeared in Paris, Copenhagen, Leningrad, Moscow. London, Philadelphia and Montreal. The prime minister and Mrs. Trudeau dined with several of the artists in the gallery restau- rant before opening the exhibit. Among them was Jessie Oo- nark, a painter and weaver from Baker Lake, N.W.T. Like most of the artists present, she speaks no English. The artists were represented at the presen- tation by Ruby Arngna'naaq of Baker Lake who acted as inter- preter. She presented the prime minister with an Eskimo carv- ing. The exhibition, entitled Sculp- ture Inuit, contains woiks dat- ing from 700 BC to the present. The works are lent to the ex- hibit by private collectors.

In a letter to min- ister Hugh Horr.'3r, the NFU said the late, cool spring in Central and Northern Albena resulted in slow sprouting of wild oats. Many farmers will not be able to use normal con- trol practices such as delayed seeding and cultivation. Tha NFU said post-emer- gence chemical control costs range from S3 to S5 an acre with pre-emergence treatment costing more. Failure to provide assistance mil result in excessive dock- age and yield losses because many farmers believe wild oat control chemical costs are pro- hibtive.

(AP) Paul Robeson, the ac- tor and singer who gained polit- ical notoriety when he refused to sign a statement saying he was not a Communist, was awarded an honorary degree by iTs alma mater, Rutgers Uni- versity, yesterday.
