Three more producers yesterday joined in the boost. They are British Columbia Forest Products, Ltd., Abitibi Paper Co. Ltd., and Anglo Canadian Pulp Paper Mills, Ltd. The increases are effective April 1. More than half of the Canadian newsprint production now is affected. Canadian companies supply 80 per cent of U.S. newsprint needs. Crown Zellerbach Canada, Ltd., - initiated the increase March 3. It was followed by Domtar, Ltd., and Consolidated Paper Corp. THE NEW price in the Eastern United States will be $144 a ton and in the Western United States $134. Announcing the increase, Abi- tibi said, "since our last increase in March of 1957, Abitibi has absorbed large increases in labor costs, transportation, power, fuel and taxes." Abitibi said its wage rates had gone up 45 per cent since 1957. The American Newspaper Publishers Associated called the increase "unwarranted and unjustified." The association issued a statement urging the producers to reconsider. IT SAO) that while costs have Increased, the profits of the companies "generally have climbe'd to record levels" while the stable newsprint prices have been maintained in the last nine years. "An increase of $10 a ton ... is an increase of $75 million in costs of producing U.S. newspapers," the association said. "Such an increase would force economies in newsprint use and circulation rates. "This would be to the disadvantage of newspapers in their competition with other media which use no newsprint a n d would inevitably be a deterrent to the growth of both newspapers and the newspaper industry." Bird Cage Barred From Late Hours The Bird Cage Tavern, 1125 S. Highland Aye., has lost its afterhours privileges. John Duncan, superintendent of the State Department of Liquor Licenses and Control, suspended the privileges indefinitely yesterday after hearing complaints of open liquor on the premises after 1 a.m. and of unreported acts of violence. The order means the tavern must close at 1 a.m. instead of being allowed to stay open without serving liquor until 4 a.m. The Bird Cage is the third city night spot to lose its after- hours privileges in the last several weeks. The others are The Embers, 3501 E. Speedway, and the Rio Rita, 3686 E. Speedway. --Citizen Photo By John Hemmer A Room Full of the Past Albert R. Buehman, surrounded by old glass plates and files, works at the task of cataloguing his vast collection of Arizona photographs and negatives. ALLEN'S BIRTHDAY 'BEST Blood Swap Set Monday Tucson's Robert F. Allen today was looking forward to the second stage of his fight to conquer cancer after celebrating "the best birthday I've ever had" yesterday. Allen, 29, told the Tucson Daily Citizen today from his hospital room at Roswell Park Memorial Institute in Buffalo, N.Y., that he and 63-year-old Harry T. Griffith .of Flourtown, Pa., will begin swapping blood Monday. Last Friday, the two men ex- Changed small sections of cancer in an experiment which doctors hope will produce antibodies in their systems to kill the cancers which threaten their lives. White blood cells, which carry the antibodies, will be extracted from each man and injected into the other. Allen said Drs. Sigmond H. Nadler and George E. Moore, Roswell Park's nationally famous cancer specialists, may perform a second tumor transplant operation on him and Griffith within the next few weeks. "I'm feeling fine," Allen told the Citizen. "We had the best birthday party I've ever had yesterday. We had three cakes and the weather even reminded me of my hometown--the sun finally came out. "I wish, however, that I could have been home in Tucson with my three children and my parents," the 29-year-old former Tucson High School and University of Illinois football player said. Allen said he received a wire yesterday from Griffith, who is recuperating at home this week. "He said next year's birthday party is on him," said the Tucson insurance broker, who has been given two to six months to live if the transplant treat- FRAME SALE Ready-Made Frames for DE GRAZIA PRINTS All Prints Always Available Dv10 fita Balloon-Sunilower-jPicalo 9X1* JltC pete-Angel, Music Q95 Flower Boy-r lower Girl, ^ 2 " *rame .... ** Qv1C ti»ft Water Maidens-Saguaro ||95 9X10 Jltv Harvest. 2y 2 " Frame ... » Q w n| f;_.

"I know this is going to work for both of us." Allen a g a i n extended his thanks to thousands of persons in Tucson and throughout the nation who have sent him letters and cards of encouragement. "Anita (his wife) and I are going to try to answer all of them," he said, "but it may take a little while." Meanwhile, the Robert F.

Buehman opened the doors of his garage after it was flooded in 1964 Ms first impulse was to close them again and forget what he had seen. In great disarray were many of the more than 84,000 photographic negatives taken by his father, Henry Buehman, and himself in two lifetimes of shutter snapping. "It was a dirty, contemptible mess," he said today. "It's a good thing my wife and I didn't know what we were getting into when we started cataloging those things or we'd never have undertaken it." Since that rainy day two years ago, Albert and Ella Buehman have been systematically sorting negatives, glass plates and prints that form an almost exhaustive pictorial history of Tucson and Southern Arizona. Tomorrow at a luncheon of the. Downtown Kiwanis Club, Buehman will show slides of 60 or 70 of the old photographs. Buehman formerly was editor of the Arizona Album, an historical photo feature which ran on the editorial page of the Daily Citizen. His father's photographic career here began in 1872. He died in ]912. Albert Buehman took St«m* +KQ KiioirvctOt? »r» 1Q19 *«*%/4 V* 1M H*V ·**·***··***« AA* A V A V CA11U retired from active photogra- raphy in 1951. Buehman's brick garage at 1150 E. Waverly St. has bookcases lining two walls. Tables dot the room, each piled high with negatives and plates. In the corner a decrepit enlarger stands, its bellows disintegrating along accordion pleats. Buehman ambled around the room, picking up first one picture, then another. With nearly everyone, he would smile and say: "Now let me tell you a story about that." And the stories he told were fresh and original, minted as they were by fee man who was there at the time, or who knew many of the people from childhood days that are pictured in his father's photographs. One small picture was entitled "Buehman's Babies." In the 5-by-7-inch photograph were the portrait heads of 551 Tucson babies. "An Indian woman came into my father's shop one day," Buehman related, "and looked with astonishment at that picture. 'Are all those babies yours, Mr. Buehman?' she asked. 'Yes, mam,' came the reply. JThe woman paused a long while and then asked my father: 'Did you AM*W»A «-.*«i !· -- -·. /-- --- - wmc vtU iici c ivi jr vui health?'" Buehman dropped the photo into a box of sepia-colored S rints, as if abandoning it. Then e returned to it. He pointed to a chubby-cheeked baby with a pair of steel rimmed glasses perched on its nose. "That's me," Buehman said, smiling. "And those two boys are the Steinfeld brothers." Buehman's collection is neatly packed into specially built cardboard boxes, each holding 25 glass negative plates or 100 film emulsion negatives. Each of these is protected by a glassine envelope which has a number corresponding to a number entered on index cards. It is a tedious job, but there are only 5,000 more to go before all are indexed. The job is not facilitated when one of the Buehmans comes upon a picture that brings back memories. Buehmar's monologue as he ran through a stack of prints went like this: "That's the old Williams home. President Hayes was entertained there." "Ever heard of the Alex Rossi depository? Well, that's it--the place where all the politics were made. The side entrance was used for ladies who had their drinks in the back where the restaurant was." "Notice how the women always stood in these wedding pictures. That "was so she could show off her fine dress. People did something comparable with baby pictures. They wanted the head little way up at the top so that most of the picture showed the babies' fancy clothes." "Those are Indians squatting on the ground outside the old ration depot." Buehman had nothing but admiration for his father's work and that of other early day photographers. "They had one negative and one paper in those days," he Court Sentencings Sentenced in Superior Court yesterday was: - Richard McFall, 47, five counts of obtaining narcotics with a forged prescription, four to eight years in state prison. said. "They were artists; they had to be." Buehman. who will be 86 March 28, gets up at 6 a.m. and works from 7 a.m. "until I.get tired," sorting through his films and negatives. What plans has he for the valuable negatives? He hopes to sell them one day as history and as art. Unquestionably, many of them are both. LANCERS' /or all your floral nettb it E. Pennfogtw MA.
