Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 29, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Nov.mber 19, THE LETHBRIDGE HEUID 43 PECK RECALLS THE GOOD OLD WESTERN DAYS SABCO, Israel (AP) Greg- cry Peck stands on location on the dusty street oC this Israeli movie town end Bays his favor- ite western was The.Gunfighler, which he made in 1950 and which Is still described as the tint adult western. But this is a grizzled Gregory Peck, looking somewhat like Gabby Hayes although younger taller. Now 56, Peck ad- mits: "Sure I like to do west- erns. I guess I made about 10 or so beginning Duel In The Sun in 1946." He wears his wide-brim bat Pony Express style, and smooths his black beard flecked with white, and thinks about westerns and the life they de- scribe. "Westerns go back to our roots, our heritage if you will. UK western is easy to tell. You can say 60 much with the cam- era alone, without much dia- logue. Of course they didn't say much in those days." Peck walks to the end of Sar- co's dusty street and enters the film company's air-conditioned motor home, brought all the way from California. He recalls his boyhood in La Jolla, Calif., in the 1920s, of seeing tottering Civil War vet- erans parading down a dirt street. And he remembers with fond- ness his western granlfalher who owned a livery stable "and had a white beard longer than mine." "I can still see the yellow to- bacco slain in it." He pauses: "Those were the last days of a fading era and I was lucky to see and remember it. We're still telling their story in films." This brings Peck to the busi- ness at hand, starring In Billy Two Hats with Dcsl Amu Jr. and Jack Warden. The picture gels (tj from a half-breed played by young Amaz. "His father had two hats, Billy's mother recalls, hence the explaini Peck. "It's a nice straightfor- ward story and It's told tm- ply." FINISHING TOUCH Ruihing 'a head' a "demon- worker" puts the finishing touches on hij creation In downtown New Delhi, India, workshop. Ten heads will offixed alop a 125-foot effigy for carrying through Hreels in celebration of the Hindu Festival of Duueroh. Montreal snows thrice 1V.Y.? twice Boston New York Times Service MONTREAL In Montreal, which gets more snow every winter than any other big city in North America, nobody talks much about the weather- but everyone seems to be doing something about it. As tire last leaves fell a few weeks ago, attention suddenly turned to winter not just pallid New York suburban- type preparations like putting up storm windows and coiling the garden hose, but a truly comprehensive battening oE the hatches, as if a major disaster were on the way. "It's a disaster all right; just a Montrealer replied tersely when questioned about the heavy plastic bags he was tying over the shrubs in his front yard, bundling them up against a bitter cold that had not yet arrived. Sl.TERSTRUCTURES Some of his neighbors have propped up their favorite trees and bushes with scaffolding made of 2-by-4's, to give them extra strength to hold the snow, and all over town complex wooden superstructures with railings on them have sprung up on sidewalks and porch steps that everyone knows will soon be slick with Ice. Montrealers had a couple of snowstorms already, and if this season turns over to be aver- age, the total will be about 100 inches, which is Ihrce times as much snow as New York city gets, and twice as much as Bos- ton. There are, of course, other parts of Canada that get quite n bit more snow than thai- but no big metropolitan area like greater Montreal, the home of two million people. In the business section of the city, restaurants and hotels have unrolled outdoor carpet- ing made of burlap. Office buildings have covered their shiney linoleum floors with long doormats and placed metal racks by the elevator doors for galoshes and rubbers. 'I always hate to see the day they put out those an of- fice worker said mournfully. "Let's not talk about snow; we' see it soon e n o u g h." A few blocks away, the bead of i fur- niture store posted this notice for his employees: "Now thai the bad weather b here, let's all try to use the side door in the morning, to avoid dirtying the carpet in the show- room." MORE AFFLUENT For the more affluent Mon- trealers, riding snowmobiles or skiing in the mountains Jus1 an hour's drive away provides a means of passing the four months when the ground is cov- ered with snow. And for all of them, rich or poor, there is proud sense of survival, espe- cially when describing their weather to foreigners. A couple of months ago, visiting American discovered that this country observes Thanksgiving Day In early Oc tober. He asked a Canadian friend here why the holiday happened not to be on the fourth Thursday in November, as it in the United States. "Stick around lill the fourth Thursday in November and you'll see the Montrealer replied wryly. "By then there isu'l anything io be (hankf u for." Cuba, U.S. move to solve air hijacking problem WASHINGTON CAP) Nego- tiations are under way between the United States and Cuba on ways of resolving an nir hijack- ing problem that causes diffi- culties for both countries. Since there are no diplomatic relations between (he U.S. and Cubn, the U.S. side of the nego- tiations in Havana is being rep- resented by the Swiss nmnasn- dor in Cubn. Tho slnle department said Monday it had its first report from the ambassador con- cerning an Initial meeting with the Cubans. A spokesman de- scribed it ns n preliminary dis- cussion. Slnle department press offi- cer John King snid the dis- cussions probably will continue for some llmo nnd Hint few de- tails will Ixj announced whllo llicy nrc In progress. The way for discussions was cleared nfler the Cuban govern- ment of Fidel Castro responded favorably Io a U.S. invitation "Io engage in discussions which might lead to an agreement" on how to handle hijackings, the U.S. state department said. The latest exchange of com- munications occurred following the hijacking to Cuba Nov. 12 of n Southern Airways by three men. Showing obvious unhapplness
