Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - June 18, 1960, Mason City, Iowa North Iowas Daily Newspaper Edited for the Home MASON CITY GLOBEGAZETTE VOL 98 The newspaper that makes all North iowans neighbors Associated Press and United Press International FuD Lease Wires MASON CITY IOWA SATURDAY JUNE 18 1960 a Copy Paper Consists of Two No 215 Kishi ho rm New treaty now in effect New film festival at Berlin By RICHARD SPONG GlobeGazette Editorial Research Bureau long range prize in the EastWest tug jtf war is being spotlighted now for a nonpolitical and much pleasanter the home of what is rapidly becom ing Europes most important film festival The older festival at Cannes remains the circus of these in ternational culture carnivals with its starlets eager to be coaxed into stripping for the photographers or to be thrown into the swimming pool But of late Cannes has lost prestige as witness the general criticism of both the judging and the stag ing of last months extrava ganza SO NOW THE Venice film festival is Berlins principal rival for serious honors And dis interested cinema critics and aficionados are beginning to give the nod to Berlin The choice is an appropriate sign of the general rehabilitation of West Germany prior to Hitler and even in the early days of the Nazi regime Berlin was gen erally recognized as Europes film capital The U S has a promising entry for Berlins Golden Bear grand prize in Stanley Kramers Inherit the Wind Hollywood mostly because of timidity and indifference sel dom takes down European top awards The most recent Amer ican film bestofshow was 12 Angry in 1957 in Berlin That same year The Friendly Persuasion won the Grand Palm at Canes joining Marty 1955 as the only U S sweepstakes winners in a competition that stretches back to 1946 This year the festival board at Cannes rejected two American nominees accepting for competition only the rel atively undistinguished Home from the Hill THE REASONS FOR Holly woods indifference to film festivals are many and com pelx Major producers have set their deals for foreign distri bution long before the festivals and hence feel they have no business incentive to partici pate And they are hesitant to submit for competition their biggest more frequently at sheer entertain ment than at artistic for fear the jury will snub them Significantly Metro Goldwyn Mayer exhibited Ben Hur for the Cannes crowd this year but not to be judged Moreover participation is ex pensive and film festivals are proliferating all over the map At Cannes the Federation of International Film Producer Associations took steps to buck the trend They refused to back proposed festivals in Melbourne and Sydney As a practical matter the principal reason Americans aside from publicitys e e k i n g stars attend international film festivals is to trade in motion pictures The top American importers are there to see what Europe has to only the films in competition but also the many shown at morning screenings in regular theaters The American producers who deign to attend usually have a picture to sell that needs special treatment or want to make a coproduction deal that is an arrangement for joint financing of a film By contrast the Soviet Union which won at Cannes with The Cranes Arc Flying for the first time in 1958 this year submitted seven films acceptable to the board TRACTOR VICTIM

WIRE SERVICES TOKYO A determined No busuke Kishi held his ground Saturday against a menacing mob of 200000 Communistled extremists who threatened to burn him out of his home At one minute past midnight a 10 year security pact between Japan and the United States came into being The unflinching stand of Japans prime minister pre vailed over the threat of mob violence and civil war but the victory was the last in a po litical career now believed to be in ruins Resignation of Kishi and dis solution of his cabinet were ex pected in Japan now within a relatively short time THE MOB RULE attempt which forced Kishi to withdraw the emperors invitation to Pres ident Eisenhower to come to Japan was believed to have 3een politically fatal The fact that he lost control of the situ ation is felt here to have consti tute a loss of face which cannot be survived The US State Department reacting immediately after word from Tokyo that the treaty had been ratified by Japan said We view this as another dem onstration of US Japanese friendship The United States has made clear that the security treaty will be mutually bene ficial to both countries The critical question re mained however how deep and widespread is the damage done to basic JapaneseUS relations as a result of the long and angry political struggle inside Japan over the pact UNLESS THE new arrange ment which would continue US
