Phone 328-9332 Southern California, tells how it happened: "Two and a half years ago Us this writing class I had to write a script and started looking for an idea. In another class the instructor showed In Cold Blood, a great film ex- cept that toward the end it made some heavy-handed statements about capital pun- ishment. "So I started wondering what would happen if you did it black comedy on capital punishment. "The next day, I went to the library and looked up electric chairs, which seemed the most grisly thing in that field. "In a mi issue of The American Mercury I found an article, The Travelling Execu- tioner, the true story of a man who went from Jail to jail in Mississippi in 1918, with his electric chair in a van, doing executions for ?100 a head plus travelling expenses. "He became the main char- acter. I put a fictional story around him." MOM BOUGHT SCRIPT The instructor who had given the assignment had left on sabattical. Another teacher started the script on rounds that led to Jack Smight, who produced and directed The Travelling Executioner for MGM. Mpst of the film, starring Stacy Keach and Mariana Hill, was shot at now-aban- doned Kilby Prison near Montgomery, Ala. There was considerable improvisation SEE PAGE 18 :FOR.

Bateson, a onetime airport bus scrubber and restaurant busboy, is guaranteed more plus five per cent of net profits if and when the picture shows profits. Producing and.perhaps di- recting are his eventual goals. Meanwhile he's writing a sec- 6nd screenplay. "It's a'college story but not about campus he says. "It will tell'me whether I can write. I'm toping I'm not a one-script phenome- non." Pollution Pact With Pulp-Mill Worries Govt. EDMONTON (CP) The Al- berta government wants to re- examine a clause in its pulp- mill agreement with Proctor and Gamble Ltd. because of changes that may result from proposed federal legislstion.

Cancellation was caused by 450 employees who are demanding higher pay and. improved working condi- tions. The preliminary agreement which expires at the end of the year, calls on the company t pay million for pollution control, with the provincia government picking up costs above that figure. Mr. Henderson said tha when the clause was written the province had control pve pollution control and decidec on joint responsibility because the costs of meeting provincia standards could have made the mill uneconomical.

U.S. Ggarette Companies To Disclose Tar Content WASHINGTON (AP) Major cigarette makers said here they will tell their custom- ers how much tar and nicotine are in their products. Under a voluntary commit- ment requested by the Federal Trade Commission, eight manu- facturers said they wBl include the figures based on commis- sion tests in all print advertis- ing. No mention was made of broadcast ads, but under a raw federal law, all cigarette ads are banned from radio and tele- vision Jan. 1. A letter to the FTC said the companies, though publishing tar and nicotine contents, don't admit they "have any signifi- cance in relation to human health." The letter was signed by Lig- gett and Myers Inc., Lorillard Co., Philip Morris U.S.A., R. J. Reynolds (Tobacco) Co., Ste- phano Bros., the United States Tobacco Co., Larus and Brother Co. Inc., and Brown and Wil- liamson Tobacco Corp. In Montreal, Paul Pare, chair- man of a committee formed to represent the Canadian tobacco industry, said Tuesday he does not see how the inclusion of tar and nicotine content in printed advertising could be an im- provement over existing prac- ices. 'At six-month intervals the federal department of health and welfare publishes compara- tive levels of tar and nicotine content of all cigarettes mar- ceted in Mr. Pare said. "This method provides the consuming public with more meaningful information and cannot see that inclusion of the information in advertising copy would be an improvement be- cause it would remain the fac- tor of comparison which the present federal listing pro vides." Mr. Pare is president of Im asco Ltd., formerly ImperU Tobacco Co. of Canada Ltd, STEAL WEAPONS MUNICH (Reuter) Tw machine-guns and 18 sub-ma chine-guns were among, weap ons stolen from an army, bar racks here during the weekeix in the biggest-ever arms snatc from West German forces, lice disclosed Tuesday..
