The Almanac, which claims continuous publication since 1818, is making its 158th an- nual appearance the 40th under the laughing eye of Ray Geiger, the irrepressible 65- year-old editor who publishes the magazine from Lewiston, Maine.

Beach Boys top record sales of U.S. groups One of many stars Rick Earhart transforms the deep and wonderous excitement of a lost continent to the frozen fantasy of Ice-dom in his fire spirit solo in one of the many great productions of Ice Capades, opening at the Lethbridge Sportsplex for seven performances on Thursday through Sunday. ELKS PUBLIC BINGO] Memorial TORONTO (CP) It's a long way from California to Holland, but the Beach Boys have gone the distance in their 12 years in the music business. The Beach Boys, who have sold more records than any other United States group, now are in the midst of a suc- cessful comeback after al- most five years of relative ob- fact few other en- tertainers have managed in the past. The group has expanded in number but the original five still are the main thrust- brothers Carl, Dennis and Brian Wilson, their cousin Mike Love and Alan Jardine. One of their most recent al- bums, Holland, featured two new Fataar and Blondie Chaplin. Blondie has since left the group be- cause, as Carl puts it: "He's into a different type of mu- sic." though he helped compose a lot of the music on the Holland album, his style was much different than the rest of the group." The absence of the guitar- playing singer-composer was noticed, however, particularly during their recent visit to Toronto. But Carl is the group will get along, saying that changes are "inevi- table." At first, the Beach Boys' music revolved around the "surfing era" in California. Surfer Girl, I Get Around, California Girls and Good Vi- brations were just a few of their early hits. But the advent of such groups as the Beatles took the public's attention away from the Beach least tem- porarily. In an interview, Carl said the American public may be reaching back to' the un- complicated sounds of the ear- ly 60s. "Our music is sort of an in- fluence to an easier exis- he said. "It repre- sents a lot of people enjoy- ment." Although he still writes for the group, Brian no longer ac- companies the rest on tours. Married now, he lives in Cali- fornia and records occasion- ally with the group in their recording studio in Santa Monica, Calif. Mike Love, the lead singer in the group, still clowns on stage but seems to be taking his music much more se- riously than the days of the Monster Mash. Love, 33, recently married his third wife and lives near the group's recording studio in Santa Monica. Carl believes working with his brothers has helped, not hindered, their development.

The native of Pictou, N.S., died at a rest home here. A memorial service is to be held Wednesday following crema- tion today. Son of a prosperous fishery figure who drowned while Kenneth was still a boy, he was at various times a country school teacher, preacher and political and economic debater. He spent several years in the 1930s in the New York company of Irish poets and playwrights such as Joseph Campbell, Padraic Colum, Shaemus O'Shiel and Suemas O'Brien. He wrote of his feelings of loss or. his father's death in the poem Lowland Low. In 1938, at the Halifax con- vention of the Canadian Authors Association, he received the Governor- General's poetry award for a book entitled By Stubborn Stars, a collection of verse he later put to music. Critics said the book had "the strong tang of the sea" and a reviewer with the old New York Herald Tribune once said Kenneth Leslie "is one to whom the music of poetry comes as naturally as breathing." Compared at least once to Irish school writers such as Yeats and O'Shaughnessy, he professed not to understand modern poetry and said in 1969: "I'd never win a prize today...I belong to the Victo- rian age."

Knievel sued for TWIN FALLS, Idaho (AP) Two Twin Falls businessmen have filed a 000 suit against Evel Knievel and his Snak'e River enterprises for losses they say they incurred during the Mon- tana stuntman's attempted canyon jump last month.
