Page 18, Daily Reporter, Dover, O., Sat., Dec. 10,1960 Opera Star Reveals Her Ideas "People go to the opera for an emotional experience, not just to listen to high notes." So says Patricia Neway, star of "Golden Child," and she claims her views are frowned upon by most of her contemporaries. "I'm unpopular with the traditionalists," she says. "They think my views are dangerous. Acting and singing are not supposed to mix. The traditionalists feel that one interferes with the other." Miss Neway plays Martha, mother of a pioneering family of the Old .West in "Golden Child." which will be colorcast on the "Hallmark Hall of Fame" Friday at 8:30 p.m. on Channel 3. "Acting is essential in opera," Miss Neway said. "There Is a direct contact with the emotion of the music, and ,you must be able to express it physically as well as vocally if you want to reach the audience." She added, '"The character you portray must be a human being. Just because he is singing instead of speaking is no reason to feel his character needn't come across. , "Take my father for instance. He doesn't Know Puccini from Pat Kelly, but I took him to see 'Boheme' once, and the tears rolled down his cheeks. Mimi was acting as well as singing, and the experience was extremely moving." Miss Neway's views on opera- Popular Stars Assist Charities By Decking Pins Money flows ^freely on NBC- TV's "Jackpot Bowling," show Monday at 10:30 p.m., and professional bowlers arc not the only ones who are banking it. Charitable organizations are benefiting, too. In fact, showbusiness stars, many of whom have never had a bowling ball in their hands before, are finding the program a big assist to their favorite charities. Jerry Lewis, Steve Allen, Danny Thomas and Jeff Chandler already have rolled up their sleeves this season, stepped up to a lane and rolled — well, sometimes dropped — a ball down the alley for hundreds of dollars. The stars get S500 to start and $50 for each pin knocked down with one ball. Lewis picked off 5 pins and $750 for Muscular Dystrophy. Allen knocked down 6 pins and $800 for Foster Parents Plan Inc., Thomas bowled a strike and collected $1,000 for St. Jude's Hospital, and Chandler won $650 for SHARE. : . That's a grand total of $3,200 in just a few weeks. Walter Brcnnan The eyes of an actor determines his ability, according to Walter Brennan, star of ABC- TV's "The REAL McCoys," vho boasts a pretty expressive pair of them himself. He says he learned the importance of eyes in acting back in the silent film era. "It was an ability to pop her eyes out , that made Theda Bara such a success as a vamp," explains Walter. "Eddie Cantor's 'banjo- eyes' also contributed greatly to his fame. "Audiences may not realize it, but much of the time they are watching an actor's eyes, they're paying more attention to them than they are to the lines being spoken. Brennan adds that eyes are equally important in comedy. Jack Benny's familiar "Well!" would be much less effective without the accompanying eye expression, he says. If you watch Grandpa McCoy carefully, you'll find Walter practices what he says. A great deal of Grandpa's thoughts can be learned by watching his eyes.

It is composed of voung professional and semi • professional singers who study theatrical techniques of operatic acting with her. Her purpose in organizing the group was to formulate a consistent set of acting principles and techniques as applied to music. "In the opera class," she said, "we cherish the hope of developing a new generation of singers who will not only be believ-, able as actors in the opera theatre, but who will bring better understanding and more consistently good ensemble to new as well as to standard works." The dramatic demands of Miss Neway's role in Menotti's "The Consul" in 1950 helped people to realize, she said, the need for opera, which, in turn, led to the formation of the Neway Opera Theatre.
