Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 15, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 26 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Friday, October 15, 1971 Confusion about detergents mounts NEW YORK (AP) The t e r g e n t manufacturers' di- lemma over the United States' new position on phosphates is chaincterizcd by one maker's advertisement. A few days after the U.S. sur- geon-genei al advised house- wives to go hack to water-pol- luting phosphate detergents, a full-age newspaper ad asked "Are you confused about deter- Everyone seems to Ijc. The non-phosphate makers, afler two years ot capitalizing on the hubbub over pollution, suddenly find themselves forced to use their ads to defend the safety of their product. They are scrambling to restore con- sumer confidence. "Sure we've had to change our said Cal Geiger- jch, director of Spot Radio Ad- vertising, the house agency for miracle White Non-Polluting Detergent. "The big emphasis now is on the safety of phosphates vs. non-phosphates. It's distracting, but we've got to meet the chal- lenge." The three big phosphate de- tergent makers, Proctor and Gamble, Colgate-Palmolive and Lever Brothers, are sitting tight and saying very little about what direction their advertising will take. The government advised housewives Sept. 16 to go back to phosphate detergents because some substitutes may be caus- tic. Advertisements within a few began to show the new direction. A full-page ad for Arm and Hammer detergent said the product had no caustic soda, phosphates, NTA or en- zymes. It asked whether non-phos- phate detergents are unsafe. The answer in the ad: "No. When properly used, most non- phosphate detergents are com- pletely safe. However, due to their higher alkaline content, their misuse is a greater cause of concern because of possible injurious effects if the deter- gents are swallowed or brought into direct contact with the eyes." A spokesman (or Arm and Hammer said: "That probably will be our only direct response. Like everyone else, we're wait- ing to see how the consumer reacts." The advertising of the heavy- el u t y detergents emphasized their ability to wash clothes cleaner. The non-phosphate Je- tergents piayed on the ecology Iheme. Sudsy streams were shown turning clear when a non-polluting detergent was used. The low-phosphate detergents struck a middle course. In one commercial a teen-ager who complains that her shirt is sus- piciously white is assured by her mother that the detergent is effective with only a small amount of phosphates. The phosphate detergent mak- crs all say they are committed to finding a safe substitute for phosphate detergents already enacted in some states and the 120 bills in 35 states which would ban such detergents or reduce the amount of phos- phate. "We hope the localities will do what Washington sider their said a spokes- man for Lever. TV ratings unkind to the big stars He agreed to the concept of The Man and the City with the hope that it could deal with con- temporary problems. "So far we've done pretty well. We did one show on Mexi- can-American militants and what they are fighting for. But the network turned down a script about the Vietnam war. T o controversial." HOLLYWOOD (AP) Along with James Garner, Shirley MacLaine, Tony Curtis, James Stewart and other film stars who ventured into series this fall, Anthony Quinn is fighting for his television life. The ratings have not been kind to the big stars. Audiences refuse to be dazzled by the glamorous names; long-run shows continue to dominate the Nielsen ratings. Quinn, star of ABC's The Man ana the City, refuses to enter the battle of the numbers. Says he: "Numbers have always bugged me. I know it sounds -1 Cll j. Ill Co silly, but I don't even want to know how much money I have. I'm afraid if I find out I'm rich, I might lose my ambition." Competing with the long-run Mannix on Wednesday night, The Man and the the mayor of a southwestern an uphill fight. In Business the Nielsen ratings for the week ended Oct. 3, the show finished 66th out of 67 programs. REALIZES HAZARDS Why would he turn to the haz- ards of a TV scries? "Thats what director-writer Richard Brooks asked me the other he said. "He wanted to know how I could stand working so hard. "I told him to ask Bill Holden or Glenn Ford or any of us who came up through the big-studio era. We made B piclures in nine days. So making an hour TV show h i c h is 15 minutes so tough in seven days. Quinn admitted that the tele- vision gold attracted him. But most of all, he turned to TV Ire- cause of the uncertainly of the movie business. "In the old days we had Ihe father images like Louis B. Mayer, Irving Thalberg, Darryl Zanuck, whn took responsibility ar.d saw things through. Now you've got dozens of producers who are interested in making deals, not pictures. You never know who to trust. The movie business is such a grab-bag now." decli ne TORONTO (CP) Business failures in Canada during Au- gust dropped to their lowest level in two years. Dun and Braristreet, a credit-reporting agency, reports. August failures totalled 145, down 21 per cent from 184 in July. The August figure was the j lowest monthly total since Au- gust, Dollar liabilities resulting from the failures totalled S10.7 million, less than half the 6 million in July.
