Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 26, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta ihursday, September 26, 1974 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 7 Former tailor expert sculptor VANCOUVER (CP) Sid- ney Sarkin spends his days re- creating the people from the Lithuanian town he and thousands of other Jews were forced to flee in 1920. Using wood and his pen- knife he creates richly styl- ized sculptures of people from his former home Mr. Sarkin retired as a master tailor's cutter seven years ago and since then has covered the walls of his apart- ment with 165 carvings and abstract sculptures. Although he was once of- fered for a carved wooden box which took him 11 months to complete he would not sell. "These things are personal How can you sell Mr Sarkin, 72, has also written a book in Hebrew about his memories which was published last year. Both he and his wife Sarah were born in Vilkomir, a town of where the Lithua- nians and the Jews lived peacefully together His fa- ther was a master copper- smith. When the First World War broke out in 1914, the Jews were driven from Lithuania. Mr Sarkin's family was one of thousands given 24 hours to leave The family fled to the Latvian city of Vilna. "We managed to keep body and soul he said. "We were luckier than those Jews taken in trains to cen- tral Russia." When the Germans occu- pied Vilkomir, the Jews were allowed to return home. He can still remember the horror of seeing grass growing through the cobblestones of the house "There were outstanding synagogues ruined because the Germans had used them as stables." After the Versailles treaty, the Allies established an inde- pendent Lithuania in 1918. For the first time relations be- tween the Jews and the Lith- uanians became strained.

MEZEI Is now associated with them in the practice of optometry. 407-5th Street S., Lethbridge Phone 327-4222 By MURRAY OLDERMAN STATELINE, Nev (NEA) The last time black tie was de ngueur at a main event was when they held some fight down in Atlantic City more than a decade ago. And at least the promoter had the foresight to haberdash the denizens of the press section in After Six outfits These came in handy, even with the smell of mothballs, for the recent main event here at Harrah's on the shores of beautiful Lake Tahoe the comeback of 01' Blue Eyes, more euphemistically titled. "01' Blue Eyes is Back." The old tux had narrow lapels and a short center vent, but what the hell. "OF Blue Eyes isn't exactly a young challenger any more either After a suitable repast of crableg cocktail supreme chicken broth with matzo balls, filet mignon with sauce madeira (minimum charge per person) the evening's card was about to begin at 10 o'clock. The ring announcer came out in appropriate black tie and short sideburns and he looked suspiciously like a replica of the main attraction INTRODUCTION It turned out that he was The Son and would not only make the introductions, an- nouncing the return of "that infamous character, OF Blue Eyes." but appear as a preliminary himself. The kid, who's been fighting prelims around the country's boites for the last half dozen years, still needs more seasoning.

Lambert did a little shadow boxing himself, tried some vocal sparing and retained his amateur stan- ding. His presence was ex- plained by the fact that he's The Son-in-Law. He exited on a Lambert waltz And on next with her own set of seconds called Nan- cy's Sweet Things came The Daughter, looked like a demure longer-haired version of Gorgeous George. The Daughter showed a lot of good footwork in the semi-main but no knockout punch. "My husband says he's not producing the she ex- plained "He's refereeing it." The penguin-cloaked audience was getting itchy Out came a guy who looked like one of the judges His name was Pat Henry and he talked a good fight. "The last time I saw this many tux- he proclaimed, "the Godfather died." He also was Italian, like OF Blue Eyes, and didn't want to cramp the champ's act. He brought the ring clock out with him. When the alarm went off at p.m., so did Henry. Finally, with little fanfare and sweeping The Son out of the ring with a wave of his right fist, Ol' Blue Eyes emerged for his latest return to action He has now made more comebacks than Sugar Ray Robinson 01' Blue Eyes is a legendary scrapper and he brings out the big action. In the outer lobby of the velvet-draped arena, Bill Harrah. who was paying the bill for this singular main event, had installed special blackjack tables to go along with the normal two-buck felt-covered tables for the proletariat BRISK START There was, as 01" Blue Eyes jogged briskly to the center of the ring, in the glow of the main spotlight, an electric an- ticipation you always get at a heavyweight championship extravaganza. 01' Blue Eyes didn't let "em down. He skipped the early, sparring and came out punching with "Leroy Brown." He went nimbly, if sometimes scratchy, through 10 fast-paced rounds, the "Herd" of Woody Herman in the background urging him on with a solid beat. Ol' Blue Eyes isn't the same guy who walloped them in the Paramount back when zoot suits were in style. Time has undoubtedly eroded some of his skills. And physically, despite the emotional binge of his female admirers, he's just a middle-aged man going to pudge in the jowls and middle who combs his hair, what there is of it. forward. "Don't Worry About Me." he wailed in mid-ring, adding apropos lyncs. "why cling to some fading thing that used to be" Between rounds he sipped out of a mug. noting that the liquid contents were both hot and refreshing COMMUNITY SERVICES QEPAff Public Swimming, CITY OF LETHBRIDGE and Museum Fa.

Among treasures displayed was a 9th-century schoolboy's Latin grammar, Ars Gram- matica by Donatus, inscribed by his mother to a boy named Sado. Schoolboys from St. Jerome down to Sir Thomas More learned Latin from the same grammar. A price of was asked for this remarkable survival. Also on display was the fes- tival book of the queen of Spain, a work printed in Flor- ence in 1612 and illustrated by Jacques Callot, an out- standing 17th-century French artist Some experts think this was the first book ever em- bellished by his artistry. TREASURES FOUND Long-lost treasures come to light at every fair. Scholars were attracted by a beauiful manuscript on vellum written in black ink about 1030 by more than one scribe, with li- turgical directions in a much smaller hand than the large hand used for the texts Identified as the Pon- tifical of Hugh of Salins. archibishop of Besancon from 1031 to 1066. the manuscript had seemingly vanished until last year. This fine copy made for the Cathedral of Tours and appar- ently the sole surviving valued at Lady Antonia Fraser, au- thor of such historical best- sellers as Mary Queen of Scots and Cromwell said in opening the fair "I read rare book cata- logues in bed when other women read cookery books." Her own collection falls into three categories: books on Mary Queen of Scots, which she collected after writing the biography, books on Crom- well, collected before her bi- ography, and books on Scott ish topography. Many beginners at book col- lecting pursue off-beat inter- ests. The best-known English poets, such as Shakespeare, Milton and Wordsworth or the romantics, Keats. Shelley and Byron, are collected vigor- ously. The same is true of out- standing novelists such as Jane Austen. Charles Dick- ens. Anthony Trollope or Thomas Hardy. What is off-beat today can easily be widely prized tomor- row. For instance, there is a vogue now for lesser-known detective fiction, Victorian and Edwardian. Works by au- thors such as R. Austin Free- man, Fergus Hume, Arthur Morrison and Charles Felton Pigdin won many readers in their day. though their sleuths never attained the popularity of Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes. Most of those detective nov- els cost no more than two shillings when first published But a single copy today rarely sells for under Show Times PARAMOUNT THEATRE CHINATOWN 7 00 9 10 LAST COMPLETE SHOW 9 10 No short subjects ADULT ENTERTAINMENT PARAMOUNT CINEMA Short Subjects 7 15 9 20 NOT NOW DARLING 7 40 9 45 LAST COMPLETE SHOW 920 RESTRICTED ADULT COLLEGE CINEMA Short SubiecJs 7 00 9 00 O1RTY MARY CRAZY LAPRY 925 LAST COMPLETE SHOW 9 00 ADULT ENTERTAINMENT GREEN ACRES DRIVE IN CONRACK fiiQD POSEIDON AOVENTORE 1005 ONE COMPLETE SHOW 8 00 GATES OPEN 730 ADULT ENTERTAINMENT 725 RUMMAGE SALE by thv HMwburn O.B.E.
