PAGE 8-SECTION A-IOAHO STATE JOURNAL POCATELLO, IDAHO, FRIDAY, JANUARY ?3. 1976 Didn't Dn l l B C t i r A louis Armsfrong Movie L / K U I I I L/U JUbllCC Sef Sundav on T*l*vMt By JAY SIIAKBfTT AP Television Writer NEW YORK AP; - Ben Vereen, one of the most gifted performers to come down the pike in recent years, is portraying one of the greats of jazz Sunday in an ABC movie called "Louis Armstrong -- Chicago Style." The film, set in 1931 in Chicago, dramatizes an incident early in Armstrong's life when a mob boss tried to muscle in on his career and hire him for one of his clubs; the mob got rough when Pops said no. The 9D-minute show has an excellent music sound track and Vereen does a marvellous job oi depicting Armstrong, catching not only his unique vocal style but also his fabled good nature and warmth. Unfortunately, Vereen and the rest of the ca;t are saddled with a script by James Lee that seems oddly limp, lacks focus and at times is maudlin. Which is a shame, considering the subject. The proceedings commence in a small, scroungy night club on the outskirts of Los Angeles, where the young trumpeter is working while his manager (Red Buttons) plots ways of getting him to the big time. Problem is, Louis isn't that interested, preferring to settle in Los Angeles than go back on the road. His manager, speaking of his meal ticket's current audience, sneers: "Buncha rubes. Chicago's where the action is." It seems the manager is none too ethical. He gets Armstrong framed on a marijuana rap -- having planted the weed in the trumpeter's coat and Armstrong is forced to leave with him for the Windy City. After a powerful en route scene in which Armstrong is threatened by rednecks at a rural gas station, they arrive in Chicago. A job the manager promised doesn't materialize. Times are lean until an old friend (effectively portrayed by Lee De Broux), a white man, offers Armstrong the chance to work in the small night club he owns. Word of mouth about this amazing musician soon has the joint packed each night. Then comes a mob boss who unsuccessfully tries to hire Armstrong, at a much higher salary. It's about here that the show starts losing steam, veering Pringle's Wins Battle In War of Potato Chips additives not found in the natural products. A potato chip, says the institute, is a "slice of fresh, raw potato, deep fried in vegetable oil, salted and packaged." No more. Procter Gamble spokesmen never denied that their product comes from dehydrated potatoes. They simply argue that a potato is a potato is a potato -even if dried -- and, therefore, a potato chip is a potato chip, etc. The potato chip industry is a S1.5 billion-a-year business. Per capita annual consumption of potato chips, according to the Potato Chip Institute, is 44 pounds. The institute spokesman said Pringle's has captured about 16 per cent of the market, "which isn't too bad" from the so-called natural chip makers point of view. Several manufacturers of the naturals have countered Pringle's massive marketing campaign with advertising programs stressing the "real" ingredients in their products, and industry sources say the projects have been generally successful in staving off the challenge. No One Saying Anything About Creature Oliver BLENHEIM, N.J. (AP) Did the midget, bald-headed creature with ears like Dr. Spock of "Star Trek" turn out to be a legendary Bigfoot? Or was it only a mutant monkey? No one is saying. Its owner, New York attorney Michael Miller, arid its trainer here have refused any further comment on Oliver since releasing pictures of the animal Jan. 7. Oliver was reported then to be undergoing tests comparing his chromosomes and other biological data with known speies of apes. The -l-foot-6 animal is boarded at the Blenheim home of Frank Burger, longtime animal hunter and trainer from South Africa. Burger sold Oliver to Miller in December for $8,000. Burger won't say where he got Oliver. Miller has said he didn't think Oliver was a Bigfoot, the Northwest's half-man, half-ape answer to the Abominable Snowman, "but I do think it's a very, very unusual creature." Miller says Oliver walks constantly erect on two legs, makes a warbiing-type sound and "if you tell him what a cigarette is and then ask him if he wants one. he will indicate yes with his head." Sef Sunday on Television from scenes of music, romance, and mob machinations without much cohesion. None of it is very believeable and parts of it are jus! boring. 1 hate to see this happen. The producers had a chance to do justice to the memory of one of America's finest jazzmen and somehow blew it. By LOUISE COOK Associated Press Writer Crunch! Another shot is about to be fired in the continuing war between Pringle's and the potato chip industry. Pringle's, Procter Gamble's "newfangled" product that features regularly shaped, evenly stacked chips in a can, won the last battle. Victory came late last year when the Food and Drug Administration ruled that Pringle's and similar products can use the term "potato chip" as long as they also use the qualifying phrase "made from dried potatoes" on the package. The Potato Chip Institute International of Cleveland is mapping strategy to strike back. An insitute spokesman said Thursday that institute representatives will decide at an Atlanta trade show next month whether to take any action against the FDA ruling. He did not say what sort of moves were being considered. Pringle's reportedly is pondering a counterattack, although company spokesmen refused to confirm or deny any new moves. Among the rumored possibilities are ridged Pringle's and a new, improved flavor. The Potato Chip Institute has been fighting Pringle's ever since the product was test-marketed in the late 1960s. In May 1975, Pringle's achieved national distribution and the war escalated. The institute claims Pringle's aren't "real potato chips" since they are made from dried potatoes and have LEGAL ADVERTISEMENTS NOTICE TO CLAIMANTS NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN BY THE OWNER pursuant !o General Provisions Section 80.07 in accordance with the Contract Specifications that the contract with Mitchell Construction Company for EPA PROJECT NO.
