The Music Man into a movie This was revealed by the former Mason Cityan in an extended telephone conversation with the GlobeGazettes editor From the Wiilson staled Ive had in mind an Iowa setting I still have Although he has been approached by the movie industrys prin cipal companies the Wiilson preference is for an independent pro duclion with Kermit len as producer and Morton Da Costa as director You couldnt beat that combi nation Wiilson noted W1LLSON ESTIMATED that he had received as many as 40 communications from Iowa about the matter Some of them were from individuals some from or ganizations some from towns quite a long way from a decision about thesetting he explained For obvious reasons we wouldnt want to put out the movie version to compete with our Broadway show If as now seems wholly likely the play has an extended run in New York it could beas much as four or five years before the film version gets under way it was suggested One certainty is that when the movie is made a special town The importance of a footbridge in the plot along with the name River City suggests a stream maybe a confluence of streams As is true of movie sets gen crally the construction of thi River City could be of quite flimsy and nonpermanent na ture mostly facade ITS POSSIBLE howeverthe community chosen woidd wish to depart from this rule and con struct the movie setting with a view

first time since he territorys acquisition in 1867 ts residents will have voting representation in the House and Senate can elect their own gover nor and state officials and can vote for the President and vice president Statehood also would give Alas ka the right to select 103350000 acres of its area including min eral lands as a potential tax base for development purposes This still would leave more than two thirds of the new state in federal ownership FOR THE US it will extend the limits of the Union within 55 miles of the Soviet mainland Only three miles separate Soviet held Big Diomede
