It may have released some heat, but precious little light. The 90-minute program had frightening, effective film footage of the turbulence at San Francisco State College. There was also some introspective talk by a teacher who stuck with the establishment in crisis and Bestseller Inspires New Movie By BOB THOMAS Associated Press Writer HOLLYWOOD (AP) - The Mirisch Brothers have discov cred a gold mine in James Michener's "Hawaii." The big bestseler has now inspired a second movie, "The Ha waiians." Film buffs can probably find an example, but I can't recall an instance where a single novel has provided plots for two movies. Sequels, yes--"Return to Peyton Place," "Beyond the Valley of the Dolls," etc. "But I want to get the message across: 'The Hawaiian's is not a sequel." insists Walter Mirisch, the professorial-looking producer of both Michener films. "A sequel uses the same characters and moves them beyond the time span in the original movie. Our picture will use entirely new characters in another period of Hawaiian history." Michener's tale of the 50th state has had a curious career in the film world. Fred Zinne mann was originally scheduled to make the movie. Overwhelmed by the immense story --from the geological beginnings of the islands to statehooc --he decided it could be tolc only in two separate films. "But our financial people de cided we could only do one pic turc at a time, so Fred droppec out of the picture." recallec Mirisch. George Roy Hill was enlisted as director. Midway in the location film ing, the Mirisches decided Hil was proceeding too slowly, and he was removed. But a threatened mutiny by the native actors restored Hill to command. "Hawaii" finished far over budget and opened to rather un kind notices, even in Hawaii. "Nobody liked it but the pen pie." Mirisch remarked happily. Aided no doubt by the popular! ty of Julie Andrews, the filrv has already grossed over $21 million, with more expected from reissues and television. The producer admitted tha' he was too weary at the comple tion of "Hawaii" to think abou another film based on the Mich ener novel. But the picture's re ceipts buoyed his spirits, and last year he began preparation; for "The Hawaiians" "The title came to me in thi middle of the night." he said. James Wehh wrote the scrip tnd Tom Cries ("Will Penny" will direct. The new story co\ ·rs 35 years, pinking up about 3 years after the end of "Ha waii." Charlton Heston will pla Whip Hoxworth. son of the char acter portrayed by Richard Har ris in the first film. The onl: other casting thus far is Job Philip Law, as Heston's son. 10-Year-Olds Steal An Ice Cream Truck HOUSTON, Tex. (AP) youngster's dream, his very own ice cream truck, came to »n end Monday night For two Houston 10-year-old boys. That's when police found the two in the truck, parked under a downtown bridge. The boys told police they had stolen the keys to the truck several days ago and woultl sneak out ea*h night for a joy ride, returning it before it was missed. They said one of them worked the truck's pedals, while the other steered. Police turned the two over to their parents.

BRIEF MOMENTS But what remains murky, to ic television viewer who has at through the nightly news hows and all the assorted docu- nentary treatments including ic most recent is the real ause of the trouble. Is it profes- ional trouble makers? Is it a ad like panty raids? Or is there omething real and valid at its ase? We hear the dissenters nake their demands, hear the ociologists speak of the anger nd impatience of the ghettos. But what appears on our creens seem to be an assort ment of youthful showoffs most ften dressed as if they were fling to attend a masquerade narty and chanting insulting argon and. when questioned making little sens,e. All of them eem to enjoy their brief mo ·nents in the TV sun. Then, via tape, we are taken jver the familiar rounds of the )ther side--the college adminis rators. But we hear little or lothing from the vast majority if students who are keeping way from the trouble center: and 'the cameras. There is little eflection of the public's atti- :des. which must be undergoing tome hardening. Television news he responsibility shows have of covering :urrent events. Television docu nentaries must do more. 1 may be the current crop abou' lollegiate turmoil have jumpec n too soon with too little to illu minate the screen. ONE COLLEGE NBC's major effort showet primarily film and tape on one college's troubles and it sue ceeded, unintentionally to be sure, in further confounding ,ome viewers and angering more. It may have tried to enlighten us but some of us, came away vith a feeling of sympathy for he San Francisco cops who hat o wade into the unruly, insult shouting mob.

EnRlan (AP) -- The Cun.ird liner Qucc Elizabeth 2 sailed Tuesday fo an eight-day preview cruise t Lisbon and the Canary Island just about four months bchin schedule. The occasion broupl a free bottle of champagne fo catering firm director Jon Lancaster. Lancaster and iiis wife were the first nf the 1.35(1 paying passengers to hoard the 65,000-ton liner. Ship captain William Warwick presented the bottle of champage to Lancaster and a bouquet to his wife. The liner, trouble-plagued from the start, had its first preview cruise to the Azores at Christmastime ending with the blades of both its main turbines stripped. Tuesday's departure went off like clockwork. 3ear Helen: Some years back in our small own a good girl was "ruined" y a young man. His way out vas to marry someone else suddenly. The poor mother kept her child and remained in the town. Meanwhile, the man produced a amily. None of his "legitimate" children resemble him, but his irst child--the one he won't claim-- is his image. Helen, this boy attends school ;ith his half brothers and sis- ers. They pretend not to know he story but surely the must. The wife snubs the girl who got n trouble and makes cruel re- makrs about her. I just wonder how a man can do such a dirty trick and not 'eel something when he sees dai- y a pitiful little boy going without a legal name, while his wife strides arrogantly past the girl vho has endured so much to live down her past. -- Hilda Dear Hilda: The man may be a cad--I wouldn't know. But this doesn't excuse the unmarried mother 'or actions that can louse up ler son's childhood and perhaps his life! You've described a self-pitying guilt symbol who would sacrifice her boy to get even with a man she hates. Why doesn't she drop the "poor little ruined good-girl" role, find a job in another town, and get on with image changing? she m i g h t even find the right father for her child if she'd tune out the past. -- H.

Here's for tougher federal laws on all phases of divorce and support payments. Disgusted Dear Helen: Most, courts are reluctant to impose jail sentences on child support dodgers, so there isn t much an ex-wife can do except work. work, work to support herself and her family. The situation isn't pretty, and it certainly isn't any fun. but we former wives must realize that these are pur children and our responsibilities.

Nixon's Tax Proposals May Be Start Of New Reforms By JOHN CUNNIFF Ap Business Analyst NEW YORK AP) -- President Nixon's tax proposals are perhaps only the beginning of many more that will be brought forth in the next few years, for the tax laws, we are told by experts, are full of inconsistencies. Experimentation and flexibility are likely to be far more common in the 1970s, for the overly simple thinking that viewed .axes as for raising revenue only, and not tools for social change, seems old-fashioned now. It isn't only what is wrong with taxes that attracts the attention of reformists. As big a goal is the good that can be wrought by the wise collection and distribution of tax money. RECOGNIZED This was recognized by Nixon in asking Congress to release two million poverty-level American families from paying income taxes. This might not put much money in the pockets of the poor, $100 or so, but it is revo lutionary thinking. New thinking, rather than new proposals based on old thinking, is what some critics insist is needed above all today. Trying to torture old ideas to fit new situations, they say, is what permits loopholes. One of the most glaring inconsistencies was pointed out earlier this year by Joseph Barr, former President Lyndon B. Johnson's secretary of Treasury, who disclosed that 21 individuals with incomes of m o r e than $1 million a year paid no income taxes at all in a recent KNOWN AREAS But there are lesser known areas of the federal tax code that increasingly are criticized. Among the accusations: --Tax laws promote slums. Major repairs of rental properties by landlords cannot be deducted as maintenance costs in one year, but must be depreciat ed gradually "ver a period o age improvements. - Tax laws discourage saving and reward borrowing, because interest on savings and dividends on stocks are taxed, while interest paid is tax deductable. This is one reason why corporate takeovers often are paid for in borrowed money rather than in stock. UNFAIR BURDEN --Tax laws cause single persons to carry an unfair burden, forcing them in effect to subsidize marriages and babies. Because they can divide income between husband and wife, married couples pay lower taxes than single people. Such apparent inconsistences are among the reasons now for a great number of studies that encourage innovation in taxes, and some of these ideas are already near to practical application. This is the positive side of the story.
