14 THE LETHBRIDCI HERALD Friday, Oclebfr 9, 1970 Gamble On B.C. Singers VANCOUVER (CP) The giant Music Corp. of America in New York is taking a gamble on New Syndrome Records of Studio 3 in Vancou- ver which could m.ake Canadian folk singer Tom Northcott and the Anvil Chorus rock group the hottest tiling since Grand Funk Railroad. Under a five-year agreement, owns Universal Pictures and up a year as a guarantee against royalties from world- wide distribution of Studio 3 products, where a million-seller is worth between and Ralph Harding, Studio 3 presi dent, says he expects to exceed this year alone. The recording arm of MCA is basically albums. Northcott's album, Upside, Downside, cut in his own studio, will be released on the Uni label and the Anvil Chorus's will come out on Kapp. Northcott's first album, The Best of Tom Northcott, which included his hit singles ISti and The Rainmaker, was finally re- leased by Warner Bros, this summer after three years of production hassles and delays. ONLY IN CANADA However, it was made availa- ble only in Canada. Warner Bros, wanted to give it a trial run in this country before mar- keting it in the U.S. Harding says MCA is buying the New Syndrome deal primar- ily because of Northcott's talent and Studio 3 management po- tential. With the Maple Leaf system independent network of stations which rate new Cana- dian the Cana- dian Radio-Television Commis- sion's ruling on home-grown content, MCA realized this coun- try is.on the verge of a record- ing boom. The agreement also dovetails with the Studio 3 publishing network and adds impetus to talent scouting trips for songwriters and-or artists. "We're looking for the young songwriter or poet who sits at the back of the audition hall and thinks: 'Gee, maybe my stuff isn't good said Har- ding. Television Star Withdraws From Parade HOLLYWOOD (AP) Televi- sion star Steve Allen says he has withdrawn as grand mar' shal of the 47th Halloween Fes- tival parade in Anaheim be- cause of political pressure from the Anaheim Republican As- sembly. The Republicans passed a res- olution Monday demanding that Allen be barred because he did not exemplify the free enter- prise and patriotic theme of the parade's history. Allen, calling himself "an American, Democrat, a liberal and part of all said yesterday he won't participate 'because of the danger that a few extremists might cause a disturbance that could deprive 3range County children of a few hours of innocent merriment." Eaton Canada Wide Special Andy sends a complete volume set of the World Book Encyc 1 o p e d i a to Kathy Crough, age 9, of Santa Ma- ria, California, for her ques- tion: iVhy aren't birds on telephon irires electrocuted? Thousands of our little song birds are getting ready to fl south for the winter. They lik to travel in large flocks, so the' gather together in groups be- fore they start out on their Ion journeys. Often they gather o telephone wires, perching on th lines like notes on a page o music. Naturally, we know tha touching electric wires is dan gerous, so we worry about thos KtOe do, re, mi birds. Actually they are quite safe. But please remember birds can do manj things we cannot do. It is no' for people to try perching oo telephone evei touching them. f Telephone wires carry along mighty powerful currents o electricity, as do the high ten non wires strung along between high pylons. The fierce curren Pearl gets invited to a lot of weddings Ftrpfiyry Pear! that is. A light, bubbly viine that's helped toast a host of brides lately. Why? Because Porphyry Pearl's clear pearly colour, zesiy bubbles, and not-too-sweet, noMoo-dry taste... all add up to a delicious and eye-appealing treat. And maybe it's because, served at the right temperature F.) Porphyry Pearl is amazingly like champagne. Imported from the vineyards of Australia, this is fine light wine yon can serve with pride and confidence. For an occasion such as ioasting the bride. Or simply a privals toast at horns. Because Porphyry Pearl is pure wine... made 100% from grapes. Porphyry Pearl creates Its own bubbles-all by itself. Porphyry Pearl... in a champagne glass! Served cold, it speaks a warm, travels along twisted copper wires. The current in a bara telephone wire is strong enough to electrocute a person, or friz- zle a little bird in a second. However, two things keep a bird from being electrocuted. One is that the copper wire that carries the current is tight- ly sheathed in a rubbery jack- et. This material helps to seal the fierce current inside. But even that does not mafe it safe for a person to touch because sometimes the jacket gets worn and the bare wire is exposed. The other .thing that saves the birds is that they are not touch- ing the ground or touching something that is connected to the ground, for on each tele- phone pole are insulators made of material that doesn't carry an electric current. They keep the current running along the wire and don't let it escape down to the earth. To get electrocuted, a bird or animal has to act'as a link be- iween the electricity carrying wire and the ground. If a bird could lean down and touch the yound, it would immediately )e caught in an electrical booby .rap, and might die in a second. A bird might even be electro- cuted if he held onto a wet string that touched the earth. But if no part of his body is connected in any way to the earth, he is quite safe. The little birds up there are 00 small to reach down and ouch the ground and they don't dangle strings. But a long string makes us think of a kite. The string on a high flying kite eads down to the ground vhere somebody is holding it. On a gusty day, the kite may get .tangled in the high tele- >hone wires. There the shock- ng booby trap waits to do its worst. It might, just might be We to dash down a moist tring and whack the person olding it at the other end. After 11, the rules say it may strike vhen something that touches it eads down to the ground. So if ou're ever flying a kite and. on see it or its string heading or any electric wires, LET GO 3F THE STRING. V Electric current, of course, is ery useful but it must be imcd to work. Otherwise it can c very, very dangerous. The ?lephone people wrap the wires 1 insulated coats and either ury them safely underground r string them out of our reach n high poles. But we also havo o watch out for a few dangers or ourselves. Just because birds can perch on the wires doesn't mean wo can get away with it. In fact, the best rule about wires that carry electri- city is not to get near them in any way. Questions asked by children of Herald readers should be mailed to Ask Andy, P.O.
