8 - Wed., July 3, 1963 Redlands Daily Facts MODEL MOSCOW .MOTEL—Perhaps proving that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, this motel dining room would not look out of place along the highway in any Western country—from the huge picture windows to the dangling, modernistic lamps. It is, in fact, part of a new motel outside Moscow, where tourist facilities are being increased to handle an anticipated increase of visitors from other parts of Russia, the satellites and the West. TELEVISION IN REVIEW By RICK DU BROW HOLLYWOOD (UP!) - A fellow should be entitied to double- time pay for having to watch an hour in which a performer preciously and effusively tells his guest celebrities how swell and talented they are. In such an aura did CBS-TV's perennial "Talent Scouts" return for the summer Tuesday night, hosted this time by Merv Griffin, and. only the constant ministering by our wife with hot and cold towels enabled this viewer • to survive the nausea and pull through. The one-hour mess began with an announcer virtually shouting ".\ni now—Talent Scouts!", as though no one knew. And after that, Griffin brought on Vaughn Meader, Hugh O'Brian, Lauren BacalJ, Liza Minnelli {Judy Garland's daughter), Jean Pierre Aumont and George -Maharis to introduce acts. The plugs were endless for the visiting celebrities, and so was Griffin's sincerity, not to mention his admiration for them. Unfortunately, one had been led to believe it would be an hour of entertainment rather than a testimonial banquet. Miss Bacall introduced a singer named Jlichael Allen, who sounded as though he were screaming wth pain. The actress had noted that he liked singing for women. Perhaps he had some bad experiences. A Cuban refugee named Maria Teresa Carrillo sang well. But the best act of the night was a spoofing husband-and-wife folksinging team named Allen and Grier, who barbed sharply with a ballad about a basketball player who was not honest, and a song about World War II as depicted in old Hollywood movies. Of the basketball player, they recorded that he was dribbling at the age of three. Of the Hollywood version of the war, there was a line about "spending half an hour in a trench with Jlyma Loy." I once had a history professor who asked me in an examination to "analyze the long-term . historic forces which led to World War I," and I have hated quizzes ever since. This week's new daily quiz on NBC-T\^ "People Will Talk," is not likely to change matters. The key part of the show is for two contestants to debate a question before a panel of judges, and Tuesday's big question was whether fathers should administer a baby's 2 a.m. feeding. I leave you with that subject so that you have something (0 talk about when things get dull The Channel Swim: SjTianon House, controversial narcotics rehabilitation center at Westport, Conn., is the subject of ABC-TV's "Focus on America" July 30 . . . Bobert Sterling is reported being sought to star in a possible video scries based on the novel and movie, "Peyton Place." Vin Scully, announcer for the Los Angeles Dodgers and proba bly the best baseball commenta tor in the business, will handle the play-by-play for the All-Star Game on NBC-TV next Tuesday. Oldtime movie headliners Anna Lee, Isabel! Jewell, Mae Clarke and Benny Rubin appear in ABC- TV's "Day in Court" next Wednesday. Airlines swop shares NEW YORK (UPI) - Pan American World Airways and National Airlines revealed Tuesday they had agreed to an exchange of stock effective immediately. Pan Am, in return for all the 353,000 shares of its stock held by National, gave up 390,000 shares in National. The swap left Pan Am with 27,588 National shares. HOLLYWOOD Shaw confrols Chinese movies By Erskine Johnson HONG KONG — (NEA) They are as up-to-date as Holly wood in making native-language movies for the big sprawling world of Southeast Asja. This appHes not only to technical skill — the equipment is the best — but in keeping pace with the western world's "adult" approach to today's plots. Even without television competition as an excuse. Mandarin language movies are hotter than ever. Current big production of the filmmaking Shaw Brothers here is "The Amorous Lotus Pan," explained as being "another name for adultery in Chinese legends about such things." It is based on a best-selling Chinese novel about a rich woman dissatisfied with mrriage who becomes involved with a playboy. So she plots to murder her husband. Our man in Hong Kong summed it up. "Much eyebrow lifting here" he said, "because of daring plot new to Chinese films." "Our man" was Shen Shan, public relations man for the big Shaw studio here. Shan also reflected the up-to-dateness of the Shaw studio's modem viewpoints. Like western spokesmen for "adult" movies, he aKured me that "Lotus Pan" is beuig filmed "in good taste." In another way, Shan also reflected the western world. He was personable, bright, articulate — and as nervous as the wrong suspect in the final reel of a Charlie Chan movie. As spokesman for the Shaw Brothers — who are named Run Run and Runme like characters in Disney movie — Shan explained that the keynote of their film empire is based on quah'ty. Run Run Shaw has been known, Shan said, to refilm entire pictures because of a passion for perfection. A sleek, dapper man in photos. Run Run was, Shan said, a short of a Samuel Goldwyn when Sam was Hollywood's king of quality. Fihns produced at the Shaw Cool front ends heat wave in Eastern states By United Press International A welcome cold front sent temperature skidding in the upper Midwest today and punched violent thunderstorms eastward through the Ohio Valley. By the end of the day, a searing nine-day heat wave will be broken from the Mississippi to the Atlantic. The mercury dipped to 46 degrees early today at Duluth, Minn., and into the 60s as far south as Atlanta, Ga. The desert Southwest maintained the highest temperatures in the nation, with Blythe, Calif., reporting 95 degrees during the night. Thunderstorms still swept the Ohio Valley today, and more were on tap through the lower Mississippi Valley. Severe storms dumped heavy rains and hail from Kansas to New England Tuesday night and resulted in at least four deaths. Youngsters in Stillwater, N.Y., Olathe, Kan., and Columbus, Ohio, died when they were struck by lightning. A Mount Airy, Ohio, boy died when high winds toppled a tree onto the garage where his family had taken refuge during a storm. studio for the Southeast Asia market are mostly boy-meets-girl stories. But less trite subjects, said Shan, have been made, such as "plots which reflect human behavior in this world of ours." There has been no Shaw tackling, however, of Hong Kong's refugee - from - Red - China problem. Musicals and occasional westerns — the Chinese call them "fight fihns" — fill out the annual Shaw product of about 70 motion pictures a year. With no little theaters, drama classes, television or Broadway stage to train players, the Shaws train their own talent in a drama department at the studio. Once a year they interview candidates — as many as 1,000 have appeared. A group of 50 or so are given screen tests. Two or three win contracts for drama studies before makmg their film debuts. Lord Audley dies of heart attack in Spain GR.'LN'ADA. Spain (UPI) —Lord Audley, 49. husband of Sir Winston Churchill's daughter Sarah, died today after a night-long nightclub tour with his wife. Hotel employes said the couple returned to the elegant Alhambra Palace hctel about 5 a.m. and Sarah Churchill went out again immediately afterward. Hotel em­ ployes later found Audley in his room, apparently ill. A doctor certified that he died about 6 a.m. Police said a heart attack apparently caused .•Dudley's death. Draft call set at 12.000 WASHINGTON (UPI) - The Defense Department set the Sep tember draft call Tuesday at 12,000 men, the same quota set for August. The September - August draft calls are the highest since 15.000 were inducted near the end of the Berlin crisis in January, 1962. National Safety council predicts heavy toll By United Press International Americans prepared today to celebrate the Fourth of July, with the grim prediction that 350 to 650 persons will die during the long weekend. The National Safety Council said the estimated 550 to 550 deaths would be a record high for the Independence Day weekend. An additional 24,000 to 28,000 persons would be injured, the council predicted. The 102 -hour holiday begins at 6 p.m. local time and continues until midnight Sunday. Howard Pyle, council president, said nearly three-fourths of all traffic accidents would be caused by drinking and driving, driving too fast, driving left of center, and failure to yield right-of-way. The Weather Bureau said sunny skies were expected on the Fourth in the eastern half of the nation and fair to partly cloudy skies elsewhere. It will be warm in almost all sections. IN NEED OF SCHOOL ST. CHARLES, Mo. (UPI) Fred Burger is a superintendent without a school. He took office this week as St. Charles County superintendent of schools. But St. Charies County controls no schools—all have been consolidated with the town of St. Charles. Great safety record Destruct trigger saves Canaveral missile crews By LEON DANIEL United Press International CAPE CANAVERAL (UPI) For eight horrible seconds the sleek, white rocket—instead of arching harmlessly over the Atlantic—veered sharply over the heart of the Cape and aimed death and destruction toward the mainland. At the end of those eight seconds, which seemed much longer, a range safety officer triggered a pair of "destruct" switches which blew the Mmuteman ICBM into hundreds of fiery fragments, including tons of volatile solid propellant, into a "safety area," keeping damage at a minimum. There were no injuries in the spectacular accident here last October. A year and a half earlier an Atlas missile knifed into the sky in the first effort to orbit an unmanned space capsule. "She looks like a good one," an observer remarkel. Others thought so too. But an Air Force officer intently watchmg electronic indicators on an instrument panel knew better. The indicators told him the rocket was off course. He let the missile rise for a few more seconds, then triggered the switches which sent an elec­ tric impulse to an explosive package inside the Atlas. Erupts In Flame Instantly, the mighty missile erupted in a ball of fire 15,000 feet in the air. Chunks of flaming debris showered to the ground, some falling on the blockhouse which protected missilemen at the launch site. The space capsule was blasted free by a rocket escape system and was dropped undamaged into the ocean by parachute. There were no injuries. That these two unsuccessful launchings were not further marred by deaths or injuries can be attributed in large measure to what scientists here call the impact prediction system. The complex system provides the range safety officer, the man who must trigger the "destruct" switches if necessary, with mfor- mation on where the missile would unpact if fuel were to be cut off durmg powered flight. The system also enables recovery forces to be on the way to the scene even before the nose cone impacts. Trains Safety Officers .•\s the nation's pioneer launching site, the spaceport here helps train safely officers from other bases and scores of missilemen from operational bases and military schools pass through here for observation and training. Safety officers work closely with the launch agencies. The launchers indicate what they would like to attain and then it is determined whether it can be done safely. Charts are drawn covering the entu-e course of a planned launch. The charts show such things as distances from populated areas, islands along the route and emergency procediure. Durmg the launch itself several officers besides the range safety officer man various instruments to observe plotted flight data. Because of these safety measures the potentially dangerous missile program—which involves explosives, great pressures, high voltage and super-inflammable fuels—has a safety record that outshines that of many other industries.
