r, MONDAY, JANUARY 13, 1969 In Heston's Opinion THE REGISTER-NEWS — MT. VERNON, ILLINOIS 7 —A* Too Much Nudity Embarrasses Audience By BOB THOMAS Associated Press Writer HOLLYWOOD (AP) -Chart- t( n Heston in a nude love-making scene? It happens in "Pro," Heston's now film which concerns professional football but includes some bedroom athletics as well. The actor was indulging in some ot the latter with co-star Jessica Welker on the last day of filming. The set was closed to all but. necessary film workers. Later, a fully dressed Heston commented: "I'm pleased and proud at the way that sex has been handled i:; ihis picture. We've done two or three erotic scenes without the baring of one breast. Yet I think audiences will find the pcc-nes as stimulating as those in which the actors are shown rude. 'Nudity on the screen is like -o- -o- -oviolence: It can defeat its own ends. Too explicit a sex scene is distracting, just as too much violence destroys illusion. "For instance, if a scene shows a knife being stuck into a body, that is shocking and re- rugnant; it is much more effective to show the knife being drawn, and then show the face of the victim. "Likewise, if a picture shows too much bareness, the audience is embarrassed; the on- l'.'<'kers are not swept up in the passion of the moment." This may come as news to many of today's film makers ,vho seem to be playing sexual brinkmanship in exploring new v»<rtas of screen passion. Heston is distressed by this trend. 'Yes, I know there are some film makers who believe their only responsibility is to film," he remarked. "I don't believe mat. I don't think that film -O- -O- -0- makera should be as unrestricted as other creative artists. You can't take the standards of a painter or a novelist and apply tP »m to the movies. "Film reaches too far and in- fiuences too many people. Complete freedom of expression is not possible; responsibility must go with it." Heston was recently elected to another term as president of the Screen Actors Guild. With so many actors and actresses being required to appear nude nowadays, does the guild offer any protection to those who don't wish to? "There's nothing in the con- .fra .-t with the producers that covers that," he said, with no I >n apparently intended. "An cicior has the responsibility to protect himself, and we urge our members to do so, particular iy in the field of stunts. "If an actor is asked to take a -o- -o- -o:>addle fall and he thinks it's dangerous, he should decline to da it Likewise if a girl is asked to do a nude scene and she I 'r.fsn't want to, she should soy so. I certainly think the guild would support her." But wouldn't she lose the job? That happened recently to a Broadway actress who accepted a tole in a new play. When the play was rewritten, she discovered she was required to play orv scene totally nude. She decided and was fired. "Usually that could be avoided in films," said Heston. "If it's a shot in bed, she could cover up with a sheet or else ask for a close shot. If it's a long shot, she could request a double. That's what happened in 'War Lrrd,' when Rosemary Forsyth t'idn't feel like playing a nude scene in a stream. And I understand Elizabeth Taylor did the same thing."

MARVIN POWERS STANLEY ROSENBERGER DONALD O. LEE, Directors State of Illinois, County of Jefferson—ss: Sworn to and subscribed before me this 9th day of January, Romney Proposal Church Schools Give Up Secular Education? 1969. My commission expires Nov. 10, 1972 (SEAL) Wa Dare, Notary Public DETROIT (AP) — Gov. George Romney, who is joining President-elect Nixon's Cabinet, urged Monday night that Michigan private and parochial schools consider abandonnig secular education. "I don't want the parochial schools closed," Romney told a reporter after his televised farewell address. He is resigning later this month to become U.S. secretary of housing and urban development. Parochial schools should be "evaluated," Romney said. "I think they should look to having class in the afternoons like the Jewish Hebrew schools." In his speech, Romney said: "I suggest we seriously consider whether it would not be more desirable to leave secular education to the state, with churches—all the churches—concentrating on expanding religious and moral instruction. "Once we start down the road of state aid to private and parochial schools, it would only be a mr+mi- of time before they were get&ig as much aid as public schools." ;>T In the last legislative session; bills calling for grants of as much as $150 to parents for each child attending private or parochial school remained locked in House and Senate Education committees. Detroit's Roman Catholic Auxiliary Bishop Thomas J. Gumbletph said, "The fact to be faced is that all schools, both public and private, are caught in a financial squeeze." "I'm shocked and astonishe <H| that a man in high public office would make such a suggestion," said Dr. John F. Choitz, president of the Michigan Association of Nonpublic Schools. "It directly contradicts a statement by President-elect Nixon on Oct. 28 in which he said, 'There is a significant role for religious-affiliated schools in the future of our country'." Romney also suggested in his speech that schools in metropolitan areas pool funds from property taxes and make more equitable distribution. The richest district in the Detroit area, Romney said, has $55,200 in state equalized property valuation behind each child, but the poorest has only $5,300. "The state should not pay for much more than 50 per cent of the cost of local education if we are to retain needed local interest and effective local control of education," Romney said.

By CYNTHIA LOWRY AP Television Writer NEW YORK (AP) — Truth beats fiction every t .me, so maybe the New York Jets should be nominated for the best drama of the television year, and Joe Namath put up as an Emmy candidate for be«t performance in a single drama. The 16-7 victory of the football team in Miami Sunday afternoon was. for millions of viewers, a show that made the latest exploit of "Mission: Imiwssi- blc" seem anticlimatic. NBC, handling the camera work in the game between the Baltimore Colts and the Jets, turned in a solid .workmanlike job as did commentators Curt Gowdy, Kyle Rote and Al De- Rogatis. But the stars were the players. From the first touchdown by the underdog Jets tthrough the final push by the Colls, the Super-bowl was exciting television. The weekend in TV term was almost routine except for the football game. "Tlie Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour," on CBS, started out on a low note — dismal Nixon jokes — but picked up steam when a number of the brothers' wr.ting staff appeared to perform their own material. There was a fresh quality about the young talent, if not all the material. "Mission: Impossible," the real one, had one of its patent, neat, complicated plots. It combined the wildly improbable with electronic gimmicks and near disaster to provide a mildly amusing hour. Ed Sullivan presented a clutch of acts from Las Vegas, entertaining enough, but the thing that occasioned more living room comment , than even Don Rickles' insult monologue was the sight, of our host with sideburns longer than those on some of his singing acts.
