Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 13, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Wednesday, Octobor 13, 1971 THE LETHBEIDOE HERALD 7 Medicine Hat-born actor Tommy Tweed dies, 64 TORONTO (CP) Tommy Tweed, actor and writer whose dramatizations of Sir John A. Macdonald brought Confedera- tion's first minister to life for many Canadians, died Tuesday on his G4th birthday. One of his most popular parts was that of Old Daddy Johnson in W. 0. Mitchell's Jake and tho Kid. IjOrn in Medicine Hat, Alia., lie had an ear for Canadian lore. His four-hour, two-part radio life of Sir John A. was heard in 1952 under the title A British Subject I Was Born and A Brit- ish Subject I Will Die. Later it was made into a 90-minute tele- vision special. His play on Sir John A., Tho Dream, was performed in Win- nipeg and Sir John A. Beats the Devil was staged at Charlotte- lown hi HIM. The Man from Number Ten, on Newfoundland, demonstrated the breadth of his interest in the country and a series of dramati- zations on Dickens attracted a whole new audience to the Vic- torian novelist. He was named recipient of the Award of Service and was to have been invested this month in Ottawa. He had not fully recovered from an earlier heart attack and collapsed last Wednesday.

But this time singer Yar- brough means it. Sometime early next year, he'll board a 46-foot ketch and set off on a five-year cruise, abandoning "a meaningless and very cut- throat business'' that was his life for 15 years. There are a lot of reasons for Ms agony and frustration in the United States over the war in South- east Asia, the shallowrjess of a life-style built on fancy cars, opulence and an Ameri- can dream becoming a night- mare. Some hurt more than oth- ers. A young serviceman in Sai- gon wrote and asked if Yar- brough could put his records on cassette tapes to te shipped from unit to unit. The serviceman was killed before he had a chance to hear them. "But the hurt we have sus- tained over this is nothing compared to what the people of Vietnam have gone through, and Laos and Cam- Yarbrough said. "It's just remarkable to me how insensitive we arc, I think probably because are to the suffering of those people. This war could not have taken place between two Caucasian races. "Put yourself in that posi- tion, if we were fighting a Caucasian race and had al- ready killed close to two mil- lion people, the white race all over the world would not have stood for it." INSTANT SUCCESS Yarbrough has gone through a lot of changes since the Limeliters were formed in the late 1950s at a club he bought in Aspen, Colo., to get close to the ski country. In the off-season, when he wasn't able to slalom, he would go to New York and Los Angeles to find other per- formers. Alex Hassilev and Lou Gottlieb agreed to come and work for him, but only if he'd join them in forming a group. The Limeliters were an in- stant success, something Yar- brough hadn't I cared about was having them come and work with me in the club." They were together for five years and cut between 20 and albums before he decided to get out. Alex and Lou picked up another singer to replace Yarbrough, but their hearts weren't really in it, and six months later, one of Borgiiine cut by glass TORHEON, Mexico (AP) _ Actor Ernest Borgnine was cut on his back by flying glass dur- ing filming of The Revengers, a spokesman for the production company reports. Borgnine and William Holden were filming a duel scene for the Western when Borgnine moved too close to a window that was being shattered by gunshots as part cf the scene, the spokesman explained Sun- day. A doctor from the film com- pany treated Borgnine, who is expected to return to work early this week. Susan Hayward also stars in the film. ROME (Renter) Actor Richard Burton flew in Sunday to begin work en a film in which he will portray Leon Trotsky, the Communist aiid immediately ran into trou- ble over his wife's jewelry. Customs officials at first refused In clear three suitcases containing jewelry belonging to Elizabeth Taylor, claiming they were worth more than mil- lion and that Miss Taylor had to be present before they could be allowed to enter Italy. Miss Taylor has temporarily stayed behind in London with her daughter Liza, who recently inr jured a leg. LAS VEGAS Nev.
