2 - Saturday, luly i, 1963 Kedlandt Dai/y facts 'Dirty Work at the Crossroads' Hoots, boos punctuate Footlighters melodrama By RON KIBBY Continuous hoots and boos brolce into "Dirty Work at the Crossroads" last night, but the audience's scorn was for the villain Jlunroe Murgatroyd and not for the Footlighter's three-act melodrama. The slap-stick villains versus heroes production directed by Jodi Lugo is a laugh-rending change of pace on the usual Foollighter fare. It opened in the center staged Grove Theater last night and may be seen every Friday and Saturday night during July. Proceeds from the show are turned over to the Redlands Chapter of City of Hope. Audience participation is an important aspect of this gaslight comedy, and there's much for the audience to do. They must help tip the black hand of the scoundrel Munroe JIurgatroyd, skillfully portrayed by Q. Lewis. Munroe's scheming partner Ida Rheinegold, played by Footlighfer veteran Janet JliUs, must also be hissed and booed. The task of offering timely bits of advice to the hero Adam Oak- hart and the heroine Nellie Lovelace is also left to the audience. Playing the stout hearted but slow witfed hero is Ed Cowan. In her first stage appearance, Sheila Carver, as Naive Nellie, barely escapes one foul scheme after another. The country bumpkin Mookie Maguggins shares the hero's spotlight in the two-hour show. Vernon Hebard, a well known figure in past Footlighter casts, plays a convincing role. Supporting the A -iliains and the heros are Norrine Philips as the Widow Lovelace, Marian Hebard as Boston-reared Leonie Asterbilt, Dee Adams as Fluerette, the Ooo La La French maid, Marjorie Shannon as Mrs. Upson Asterbilt and Penny Sieber as Little Nell. Master of Ceremonies Chuck Palmer does a masterful job of drawing the audience into the feel­ ing of the old fashioned "Gay '90s" flavor of "Dirty V/ork at the Crossroads." A series of olio acts give relief as the plot thickens. The olios feature the harmonizing Boston Belles, a line of frolicking Can Can girls and the Mark V Dixieland Dandies. Detailed stage settings give vivid realism to the "comball acting." Particularly noteworthy is a wall-size woodland mural prepared especially for the production by Fred Heimerl. To appreciate "Dirty Works at the Crossroads or Tempted, Tried and True" requires the personal touch of a hoot, a holler and a whistle. Will Nellie be saved from the wicked Munroe? Will Adam Oakhart spend the rest of his days in jail? Will the speeding locomotive stop or will it run over poor Mookie? Nellie, Adam Mookie, Munroe and Ida return to the Grov Theater this evening. Curtain time 8:15 p.m. 'DIRTY WORK' PREMIERES - Two members of the Footlighters cast of "Dirty Work at the Crossroads" show the program to Mrs. Jack Levine, left, secretary of the local City of Hope chapter, at the gay opener of the old-fashioned melodrama last night.

Members of the cost shown are Ed Cowan, center, who plays "Adam Oakhart" (the hero) and Janet Mills, right, who plays "Ida Rhinegold" (a villoiness). lorry H.

IN HOLLYWOOD Movies vs. stars in Hong Kong By Erskine Johnson HONG KONG (NEA) — Chinese; The film is a product of Hong movie goers in the Far East are about to see a "Cleopatra" of their OUTI by another name — Wu Tse-tien. She was the most famous wom^ an who ever lived in the 4,000- year history of China. And her story, "The Diabolical Queen," in color, has become the biggest movie of the year in chopstick land. But never underestimate the clever Chinese. When I mentioned Wu Tse-tien as being in the same league with the siren of the Nile, I was told by a grinning Chinese press agent for the film: 'Like Cleopatra yes — but more like Liz Taylor."

Modem as tomorrow, it is perched on a high Kowloon hill with .a magnificent view of dozen green sugar loaf islands floating in the South China sea. There are six big white sound stages. Behind them, on higher ground, is a backlot of outdoor sets — streets and buildings — unlike those on any other movie lot in the world. "Look," said our Chinese friend Shen Shan as he pounded a small fist against a marble wall. "Real marble. Real buildujgs, everything real— solid — to withstand typhoons that come every year. "In big typhoon Wanda, when 200 people die in Hong Kong, here everj-thing safe. Here only damage two broken light bulbs." A huge sign outside this neat film studio on a lofty hill reads: "Shaws' Movie Town." The Shaws are brothers with the unforgettable names of Run Run and Runme, Christian names they selected for their own as youngsters when their father owned the only movie theater — really just a projection machine m Shanghai. Today they are the movie entertainment tycoons of Southeast Asia with two other studios, in Singapore aiKl Kuala Lumpur, Malaya. Just as their Hong Kong studio is "typhoon-proof," so are the Shaw Bros, "competition-proof.' They produce and distribute the bulk of Mandarin and dialect movies, 60 a year in Hong Kong alone, for every nook and comer of Southeast Asia. Tbey own the theaters — 128 of them — whidi exhibit the films they make in "Shaw-scope." They hold the contracts of 150 stars and players and even of 600 extras. They create stardom only for newcomers they select and send to their own drama school. TTiey own the printing plant which helps advertise then: films. They even own four fan magazines with a readership of millions in the Far East For the privilege of reading about Shaw-produced moT ^es and stars, readers pay 85 cents, U.S. money, per copy.

State of California, will deliver the opening address for a two-week workshop in social studies at the U. of R. Monday at 8 a.m. in the Casa Loma room on campus. Social Studies Workshop Slafed Af U. of /?. "A major task faced by classroom teachers is that of identify- (ing the relatedness of the learn- I ing outcomes from children's experiences to the significant ideas from history, geography, economics, political science and other social sciences." This realization, according to Helen Heffeman, chief. Bureau of Elementary Education, State of California, led to her department sponsoring a two-week workshop in social studies at the University of Redlands July 15-26. "Planned also as a follow-up of the Regional Conference on Citizenship Education held in Red lands last spring, the program has been designed to provide deeper insights into the development of significant generalizations from the social sciences", states Miss Heffeman. Intended for parents as well as to assist school districts in planning fall pre-school meetings, in- service prograins for teachers and administrators, the workshop offers two units of upper division credit. Scheduled throughout the two weeks are seminars with a corps of social scientists and curriculum resource persons, and directed observations in the demonstration school's first throu^ sixth grades. Social studies activities and the learning outcomes will be analyzed with university and State Department of Education personnel cooperating. Although enrollment is limited, applications will be accepted in the order m which they are received. Further inqmries may be [ directed to the UR school of education.

The bride's dress was fashioned of satin and lace and her fingertip length veil was fmished with a wide border of lace. She held a cascade arrangment of carnations surrounding an orchid. Mr. Smith gave his daughter in marriage. Maid of honor was Linda Smith, sister of the bride, wearing pink chiffon and carrying a nosegay of lilies of the valley, rosebuds and forget-me-nots.

Mrs. Bartholomew, mother of the bridegroom, wore pink taffeta. The newlyweds are now on a wedding trip to Canada, after which they will return to live in Redlands. The bride graduated in June from Redlands High school. Her husband, also an KHS alumnus, is now employed by the California Electric Power Company. Piansf Liberace Flashes Familiar Smile Af Sfarf Of 70-Cify Tour By VERNON SCOTT HOLLY^VOOD (UPI) — Eight years ago pianist Liberace, taste fully done up in a gold spangled jacket, made his Las Vegas debut with as much accompanying noise and fanfare as Diceville had ever heard. He was paid the unheard of salary of $50,000 per week, which hasn't been topped by a nightclub to this very minute. Liberace, his teeth gleaming brighter than the keyboard, propped his candelabra atop the baby grand to a packed house every night. Twice a year thereafter for several years Liberace returned to the desert town to play the piano for curious. This week the toothy one returned to the Riviera Hotel tor the furst time in five years. The fanfare has subsided, but not Lifaerace's famed grin, nor his enthusiasm. His salary remains almost as high as it was back in 1935, which could account for Liberace's blinding smile. "I purposely stayed away from 'Vegas,'" the pianist said, running his hand through a tangle of curiy hair. "I played there so often I grew tu-ed of it, and I had the feeling that 'Vegas' was tiring of me." Inasmuch as Liberace has been ducking 'Vegas' and hasn't been much in evidence on television, the question arises, just what has he been up to in recent months? Answer: He has been making a fortune in one-night stands. "They call my appearances concerts," Lee said, still grinning, "but they're really a series of smgle performances. I spent the last nine months hopping from town to town. I play the big cities, like New York and Chicago, and I also appear in small towns." The smallest hamlet visited by Liberace was Jackson Minn., where he claims some 15 per cent of the population turned out to applaud his artistry earlier this year. Peculiariy, Lee is not a hero in his own town. He hasn't played in Los Angeles or Hollywood for three years. However he does p>iy the piano—all five of them—m his home, practicing three hours a day. The instruments are constantly tuned by a piano company which also provides pianos for him everywhere he appears. "A lot of the time I play brand new pianos," Liberace said. "I sign them with my autograph and then most of them are sold to people who want a piano played by an artist." When artist Liberace completes his four-week stand in Las Vegas he will be off on another tour of 70 cities in some 28 states. At $5 per admission ticket Liberace can afford to forget tdevision— and 'Vegas,' too, for that matter.
