"I wanted to have a documentary flavor, a feeling that this world tragedy could be happtning." And it can happen here, Wilde is convinced. The basis of his tale: It is England, four or five years from now. World famine has been caused by pollution; a virus mutation has wiped out all grass and grain. China has bombed half of its population so that the other half might have a chance of survival. Human life has virtually ended' in South America. CAPITAL CLOSED London is being closed down; it can no longer support life. Citizens fles to the country- side, where roving bands mar- aud, seeking food. Fantastic? Unbelievable? "I don't think insists Wilde. "Look at the fungus that destroyed so much of our corn crop this summer. Look at Pen- sacola Bay, where millions of fish died from lack of oxygen. Look at Lake Erie, which is to- tally dead. How do you bring a dead lake back to Me? "Look at... Wilde is well-stocked with ex- amples of rampant pollution. "I started getting interested in ecology when I read Rachel Carsons's Silent he said. "At that time I, like nearly everyone else, thought that she had overdramatized her theme. No one then could imagine that our environment could undergo such severe dam- age. f, Octob.r 19, THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 7 FISH EATERS Canadians consume about 11 pounds of fish products per cap- ita annually. ______ COMPULSORY PLAN The Canada Pension Plan is compulsory for workers be- ;ireen 18 and 70 years.

PHILIPS COLOR TV JACK'S 30? 13th St. N. man for the Beatles pop group today scoffed at a proposal to have John Lennon explain tie song lyrics at the Sharon Tate murder trial saying it was "like summoning Shakespeare to explain Macbeth." A defence source at the Los Angeles trial said Lennon was wanted as a witness to tell the court whether the British group's songs could have in- spired Charles Mansion to viol- ence. The state has claimed that Manson felt the Beatles song Helter Skelter predicted a race war. A spokesman for Apple, the Beatles' business organization in London, said the suggestion that Helter Skelter held hidden appeals for violence was "ridic- fantasy." He said the song's words were printed in the record album in which the tune was contained and anyone could see they were innocent. The song tells about going up a hill and sliding down again. "But it is a noisy number and perhaps the noise is what ex- cites said, ths Apple spokesman. In any case, the spokesman added, Lennon would be the wrong man to explain the song, letter Skelter was written by Paul McCartney, who has left the group. Accused Of Doin' Dirt To Cheap Canadian Film NEW YORK (CP) The New Yorker magazine has accused the Motion Picture Association of America of doin' dirt to Coin' Down the Road, a low-budget film import from Canada, by giving it a "restricted" rating. .Critic Pauline Kael, writing in the Oct. 31 issue of the weekly magazine, says Coin' Down the Road "is perhaps the most un- corrupt movie in town" and "will probably suffer at (lie box office because of its gentle- ness." Despite this, the critic says, the Canadian film has been rated R, .meaning the United States anyone under 16 can't go to see it unless accom- panied by an adult. "The hypocrisy says the critic. v i "One does not have ..to .be-, a know that if Coin' Down The Road had come from .an American company and cost millions, Jt Olson To Meet U.S. Secretary OTTAWA (CP) Agriculture Minister H.

Mr. Olson will attend a United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization meeting and talk I with Dr. A. H. Boerma, direc- tor-general of FAO, prior to in- formal talks with Mr. Hardin. A .spokesman for Mr. Olson said the talks would concern "matters of mutual interest." would have been unrestricted.' Critic Kael says the movie, made in color for "can stand as a model for film stu- dents of the kind of craftsman- ship that can be achieved on a shoestring." The story, about two tmhip Nova Scotians who seek oppor- tunity in Toronto, is "a some- what hollow triumph of craft over an insufficient idea: the story is too familiar." "Don who directed it, is so good at blending actors into locations. at. times while watching it one" forgets that it is an acted film has the technique for a .new kind of sociological ob- servation on film, and I hope he finds' his way."
