Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 3, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Tuetday, Stpttmbtr 3, 1974 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 7 Thief steals police bike RICHMOND, Va. (AP) The city's one-man police bi- cycle patrol, begun during the energy crisis, ended unexpect- edly Friday. PatrolmanJ. E. Carter's 10- speed bicycle was stolen after he parked it on the street for a few minutes. Carter said when he re- turned, he saw a man speed- ing away in a car with the bicycle and a parking citation book in the trunk. BOSTON (AP) After spending 44 minutes in a cake of ice Thursday, Jim Randi headed for "the hottest bath you ever saw and a meal that would shame a horse." Randi, 46, a showman from Rumson, N.J., staged the event to get his name in the Guinness Book of World Records and to win from a local television show. During his deep freeze, two Boston firefighters stood by with axes to split the solid cake of ice if anything should go wrong. A doctor also was present to monitor Randi's heartbeat. LOS ANGELES (Reuter) A 16-year-old girl has been ar- rested being the "bra-less bandit." Police said the girl and a man accomplice staged a number of bank hold-ups recently during which she wore a see-through blouse and no bra, sufficiently distracting witnesses to prevent them from giving police an accu- rate description of her face. SOUTHAMPTON, England (Reuter) New York harbor pilot Capt. John Cahill board- ed the Queen Elizabeth 2 for the routine task of guiding the Cunard liner into the Atlan- ended up in Southampton. "This was the first time I've been overcarried in 20 years as Cahill, 45, said Friday. He was taken by car to Lon- don's Heathrow airport to catch a plane home. He explained he had to stay aboard the QE2 for the Atlan- tic crossing after his pilot cut- ter was diverted to help the crew of a Greek tanker which was sinking. NAPLES, Fla. (AP) Judge Louis Corbin says some persons coming before him have an advantage. "Some judges, being hu- man, might hold appearances against somebody. I don't even get upset over long said Florida's only blind judge. Women who try to influence Corbin by striking a mildly provocative pose soon dis- cover their effort is futile. "It is a bit Cor- bin said in an interview Fri- day. "My wife sometimes sits in court and tells me about some of the ladies, but I can't appreciate it." Many persons don't realize that Corbin, 35 and blind since a shotgun accident at the age of six, can't see them. SOUTHERN ALBERTA THEATRES PINCHER Theatre "CARRY ON MATRON" in color.

(CP) Vancouver lutenist Brian Fitzgibbon had to decline when a visitor to the British Columbia pavilion at Expo 74 asked him to play Sweet Georgia Brown on his 19 str- ing rennaissance instrument. "I sort of brushed him aside and played something said Mr. Fitzgibbon, who, with Vancouver lute maker Michael Dunn, performed dur- ing Canada Days Aug. 28-31 at the fair. But he didn't expect the reaction that followed. "The fellow stalked out the door and, just as he was leaving, shouted that he didn't see why I needed all those strings if I only had four fingers and a thumb." "There were lots of people standing around it was to their credit that they broke up laughing." The incident was only one of many. Another time, said Mr. Dunn, "I was building a lute and this guy was explaining the process to his daughter. He gave such an accurate and detailed explanation that I think this guy must make lutes or hang around a lute shop. Then he looks up and asks what kind of boar I'm making." "Few people have heard of lutes said Mr. Dunn, who claims Vancouver is the early music and instrument making centre of Canada and one of the principle centres in- North America. Mr. Dunn, who learned to make the 16th century instruments while sharing a shop with Canadian luthier Ray Nurse and now makes about 20 a year, obtains much of his wood from the beaches of British Columbia. "There's better quality lumber on the beaches than in lumber he said. "The good stuff goes on the boat to Japan" and he picks up cedar, spruce and pine that has floated back from broken log jams. The rounded lute bodies are made of eastern maple or yew, the sound board of spruce or Douglas fir "I have fir with such a straight grain even the lumber yard people don't believe it's fir" and the peg box of maple. NAMED BY CREES The Slave Indians of northern Alberta were so named by the Crees because of their peaceful habits and inefficiency in war.

He follows the traditional school, "the way lutes have been made for cen- turies." The second method is the modern school, "which produces very heavy lutes, similar to guitars, and strung with high tension strings. Julian Bream plays this type he should be given credit for introducing the instrument" to large numbers of people. "The tone of the (traditional) lute is lighter, much more delicate than a said Mr. Fitzgibbon. "A guitar is a strong instru- ment with a warm, rich sound. The lute's sound is smaller." The lute in its original form, the oud was brought to western Europe from Arabic countries by the crusaders, said Mr. Dunn. "But tie Arabs have no har- 'mony in their music, and no frets, the bars on the finger- board which divide it into notes. "The instrument was refin- ed in Europe and under went an incredible evolution in 180 or 200 years. The earliest lutes had fewer strings. The last lutes had 24 strings and were still going that was one of the reasons for their demise, they became too com- plicated." But in their heyday, during the 16th and 17th centuries, lutes were played not only in courts but by the common people. "The common people had to play said Mr. Dunn, "with lutes in the shop of Italian lute maker Laux Maler alone." Lutes originally had no stan- dard tuning, explained Mr. Fitzgibbon. "The first string would be tuned as high as it would go, then the others were tuned accordingly. It was a real gas. The instrument sounded best just under its breaking point." Mr. Dunn, who last year was commissioned by the National Museum of Man to construct two lutes as exact copies of 1641 French instruments, also makes vihuelas an ancestor of the guitar and chitarrones, which are a variation on the lute with a four foot neck. There is only one existing vihuela on which to pattein copies and it is vastly different from available descriptions and engravings. The back of the existing vihuela is composed of 280 pieces Mr. Dunn scales his down to 84. Chitarrones are wire strung instead of gut, and were used to the end of the 18th century in early baroque operas, said Mr. Dunn. "Some short singers would complain that with the forest of chitarrones they couldn't see the audience." By SILVIO DOBRI Canadian Press Every Rock group dreams of success and recognition and Ocean is no exception. But for these five musicians who have tasted success, it was too much too soon. "We were really naive and said organist Greg Brown, the man respon- sible for pulling the original members together in August, 1970. It was a case of five road experienced musicians banding together and follow- ing the same vision. The group members saw the making of a record as the first step to triumph. A contract with a record company followed and the group picked Gene McLellan's Put Your Hand in the Hand as its first single. "When we first heard the song it sounded nice. Others had recorded it but never got anywhere with it and we felt that with a few changes it could become a said female vocalist Janice Morgan. Put Your Hand in the Hand was committed to plastic but soon after it was shelved by the record company. The band was not pleased and took it upon itself to mail a copy of the single to every radio sta- tion in Canada. The air exposure that followed was limited but it was enough to make the record company take notice and give the disc another chance. Put Your Hand in the Hand became an instant hit, topping hit parade charts the world over.
