Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 24, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta India nuclear blast angers world helpers An AP Newt Analyiii By MYRON L. BELKIND NEW DELHI India's underground nuclear explosion has set off a chain of international repercussions that Prime Minister Indira jandhi may find hard to control. The blast increased her prestige at but it altered the region's diplomatic checkboard and angered key Western aid donors. It posed an immediate danger to detente between India and Pakistan that began recently after the strains im- posed by their 1971 war.

The chairman of Pakistan's Atomic Energy Dr. Munir Ahmad hinted Tuesday that his country may have to push for its own nuclear capability. India told as it told other critics that the blast was meant only for peaceful purposes. Most world reaction to the test has been such as the severe criticism aired Tuesday by delegates to the Geneva disarmament conference. The United States and two countries on which India relies heavily for said any nuclear blast furthers world nuclear instability. WANTS RESCHEDULING The explosion followed Indian requests to Western aid donors to reschedule debt repayments and pledge more economic assistance. The irony is that India was able to explode its first nuclear device because of assistance in nuclear technology from Western especially Canada and the U.S. The most crucial assistance came from which trained Indian scientists in the 1960s in the techniques of building a nuclear reactor and using it to produce plutonium. Plutonium used to trigger the explosion is presumed to have come from a Canadian- aided reactor at Trombay. near Bombay. Canadian diplomats said that under an agreement signed in the India was allowed to use the plutonium produced from the reactor only for peaceful purposes. Prime Minister Trudeau's foreign policy adviser Ivan Head has said the blast might cost India further Canadian nuclear training. India maintains the blast's peaceful intentions did not violate the agreement.

Joan Waterfield's Entertainment Eye ROBERT REDFORD Production of kettles curtailed TORONTO Produc- tion of electric kettles has been curtailed by at least two manufacturers following a federal government announcement that the appliances may cause lead poisoning. Sunbeam Corp. Ltd. has frozen its stocks of electric a company spokesman said Thursday. In Thomas production manager at Canadian General Electric said manufacture of electric kettles at the plant has been halted until results of federal tests are released next week. GE stopped using lead solder in its kettles in 1970 following warnings from the United States food and drug administration about the possibility of lead poisoning from other types of cooking Mr. Taylor said. Mr. Taylor said CGE is still selling old stocks of the kettles. In a spokesman for the T. Eaton Co. said the firm will continue to sell all brands of electric kettles until government tests are complete. Herb federal minister of consumer advised the public this week to stop electric kettles. A federal spokesman has said tests are being conducted on electric kettles. RED COACH Next WMk TAVERN LOUNGE presents Don Perrin nightly C for your entertainment BARNEY and the BEERNUTS 4thAve.47thSt.S- Phone 327-3191 HOTEL 'Great Gatsby' like a bad play The Great Gattby is somewhat like a dime-store stone in a Tiffany ring-setting. No expense has been spared in stars and sets but the screen play by Frances Ford Coppola and direction by Jack Clayton is dull glass. This is the third time Hollywood has tried to come to terms with Scott Fitzgerald's compelling novel of an appalingly superficial society at odds with mainstream America. The 1926 version offered Warner Baxter and Lois Wilson as Gatsby and Daisy Buchanan. In 1949 it was Alan Ladd and Betty Field with Barry Sullivan as the husband. This time around it's Robert Mia Farrow and Bruce Dem. But the window to a world of 50 years even allowing for the popular haze of nostalgia is cloudy indeed. Fitzgerald who emerged in a great wave of realistic writers meticulously planned his novels in creating in his books the tragi-comedy of life. Now the current film edition of his Great Gatsby comes across like a bad numbingly contrived and with provoking improbable dialogue and actors who are character cyphers. Bedford as Jay Gatsby is the very image of the Arrow- shirt advertisement of the Twenties. But who is From whence his drive to the his great his romantic quest for Emotion is shown in the sweat that beads his brow and those of the other actors in that strange summer at West Egg. Only the brow of no hint of perspiration stains the marvellous clothes concocted by the costume designer.

Lethbridge Exhibition Pavilion MU wide-eyed and toothy as the hedonistic Daisy wide-eyed and toothy and has all the appeal of a fly in amber. Clayton has his actors underplay to a gelid fare but they cannot be blamed when soap-box rhetoric is their material instead of the drama of the human condition. Most everybody acts through the nose and the exceptions being Karen Black as the wayside trollop and Scott Wilson as her cuckold husband. Wilson indeed offers the only the only dramatic power in the 140 minutes or so of the film. Where the movie could offer in the widely touted party scenes one is given a blanket of beautifully dressed many marshalled like a chorus line from The Boy Friend and none of whom emerge with any minute characterization. Gatsby had its troubles in an early script by Tryman Capote was the budget went to actresses competed for the Daisy role as assiduouously as was done for that of Scarlet O'Hara. A massive publicity campaign was mounted which this marshmallow movie may cause to initiate a backlash. And yet one wonders whether the film shown locally is that which on the favorable reviews. Checking out one finds that Tom Ewell appeared in the closing sequences to give the S.O.B. eulogy at Gatsby's graveside.

She's off shortly to the Universidad Nacional Mayor De San Peru to three ballets for the resident professional company. Invitation to South America came as a result of a pas de deux choreographed by Mrs. Jolliffe. for former student Jane Lee and husband Phil Devonshire now dancing with the Ballet De San Marcos La Casona Parque Universitario. Currently Mrs. Jolliffe is rehearsing her students for the annual Evening of June 4 at the Yates. The presentation will offer senior students in Lei Sylphles and a new and as yet untitled jazz ballet. Junior students will be seen in scenes from Alice in Wonderland with Ed Bayly handling the linking narration. A past record of first-class entertainment by the Lethbridge Stake M.I.A. in the profuctions The Order is Love and the Pirates of Penzance whets the appetite for their newest musical play Promised Valley. The written by Crawford chronicles the trek to Utah in the 1840's with an interesting sidelight on the Mormon Battalion which served in the Mexican American war. Many will see Promised Valley with memories of an earlier production directed by Farm talks OTTAWA C.G. president of the Cana- dian Federation of Agriculture and of the International Federation of Agricultural will head a 10-man delegation to the 20th general conference of the international federation in May 20-25.
