Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 19, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Nature of man seen in novels Friday, October 19, 1973 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD-7 SYDNEY (Reuter) Australian author Patrick White, winner of the 1973 Nobel Prize for Literature, has conducted an un- compromising examination of the nature of man through his novels which have gained him a steadily widening reputation over the last 30 years. His international status was established with The Tree of Man in 1955. and he won more admirers with Voss three years later. Of The Tree of Man, which describes the life of a dairy- man, he said, "I wanted to try to suggest in this book every possible aspect of life, through the lives of an or- dinary man and woman. But at the same time I wanted to discover the extraordinary behind the ordinary." This search for broader truths through an individual life also marked Voss, the story of a 19th-century German explorer crossing the vastness of Australia. Critical reaction has been varied as his stature has grown. Some Australian critics called him pretentious and unreadable, but others have compared him to D. H. Lawrence and James Joyce. White, now 61, has been mentioned as a Nobel Prize possibility before. Talking to an interviewer he said that if he did get the prize, it would "lead to guilt feelings within me" because of his respect for the works of Tolstoy, Lawrence and Joyce, the writers who never won the prize. White is known as a with- drawn, reticent man who rarely gives interviews or makes public appearances.

Ornaments of the past making mobile comeback DETROIT (AP) Hood ornaments, those hallmarks of the great cars of the past, are making a comeback. Ornaments are sprouting on such cars as the Chevrolet Chevelle. Mercury Cougar and other intermediate-sized cars. The large cars, such as the Cadillac and Lincoln Con- tinental, always retained their motoring "mascots." Hood ornaments began to fade in the 1960s, when it was decided they posed a hazard to pedestrians thrown against the hood in an accident. The hood ornaments appearing these days are spr- ing loaded and flatten on im- pact. Perhaps the most notable hood adornment among the vintage cars appeared on the 1931 Kissel. It was an eagle and it also had a function. When the radiator overheated, the uplifted wings of the eagle would droop. STARTED BEFORE WAR Ornaments apparently got their start just before the First World War when dashboard gauges began replacing thermometer-like devices on car hoods. That left an unsightly radi- ator cap up front and auto- makers started adding or- naments ranging from St. Christopher to a leaping greyhound to an archer with a bow and arrow. They neared extinction when radiator caps went un- der the hood and stylists began to streamline the car.

"I'm 43. It's catching up." The tone is non-committal. Pause. "As a matter of fact, I'm enjoying life more, somehow in certain respects these days." Up early for a crack-of- dawn television show, the noted creator of elusive dramas is braced for an infre- quent journalistic catechism. "This is one to he says. An intermediary hurriedly leaves the hotel suite. "Sure you he asks as a Dom Perignon vintage cork pops. "I can use this." For an intensive, "wonder- ful year" Pinter has been con- centrating on adapting Marcel Proust's massive Remembrance of Things Past for a movie by his friend Joseph Losey. "I expect to be very involved in the making of Since writing his last stage play, Old Times, in 1971, he also has attended to screen preparation of his own The Homecoming and directing Butley. a drama that he previously staged for London and Broadway. Both pictures are ready for release to eight cinemas for the debut of the American Film Theatre project. During the last two years, he created one original for British television, a 20-minute monologue entitled Monologue. Not that he hasn't tried fur- ther writing "I'm in something of a desert." he remarks. Does invention become more difficult9 "Hmmm. I'm afraid so "It's all slightly arid at the moment... my juices, you know, seem to have dried up Swallow. He returns to the point while commenting on previous scripts and whether he might write them now in some other way. "I do find for example The Caretaker is not economic, spare enough. So now I would be more economic. But I'm sure I'd lose the spring. "I seem to have lost that anyway. The old gush." Lest that sound defeatist, he hurriedly adds. "Oh, I'm sure I'll write again, sometime." Pinter conversation is quiet, searching polite. He insists that his plays are stories without intended depths for interpretation. He is keenly, ruefully, aware of the perils of settling into a prosaic format, and the difficulties inherent in change. In Landscape and Silence, for example, he seemed bent on attaining the ultimate dramatic distillation of the unspoken thought, the provocative pause. "The funny thing about this whole damn thing is that everything you write I feel when writing it that I'm free- ing myself from what I've written before. That I'm getting freer. "I know I had much more freedom in myself when I was young. Now it is much more painstaking. It does in- deed slow down." Creative satisfaction is al- ways provisional. "I'm on the whole quite fond of what I've written. One or two short plays. I did a while ago, I don't think are very good, but on the whole. If I do happen to open a copy of one of those plays. I find something that makes me smile, that pleases me, you know, at some page or another. But I don't think THE EL RANCHO MOTOR HOTEL Presents m the.

Before turning to authorship, the tailor's son from London's grubby East End was an actor. "I was always good at sinister parts." he recalls. He still occasionally per- forms in one of his own plays, always in roles "that tend to be a bit vicious There are also recurrent di- recting other authors' products. "I tried do- ing my own and that didn't work." Pinter is an associate tor on the recently reorganiz- ed National Theatre staff, which is headed by Peter Hall and includes Jonathan Miller, Michael Blakemore. John Schlesmger "and let's not forget Oliver." The appoint- ment gives him "quite a lot to say" about overall operations and an opportunity to stage some of the eminent com- pany's exhibits. His first assignment, sched- uled to open next April, is a play by John Hopkins, "a very remarkable writer Precisely what it is about hasn't been divulged, but the form at least should be within traditional limits. college cinema NOW SHOWING At p.m. BRbCE LEE ADULT NOT SUITABLE CHILDREN FOR MASTER of luRATf lldNq 111 n buck TO bittAlt you up, Ash you kick you wild Color-A National General Pictures Release!
