December 22. 1976 PAGE 10 HAYS DAILY NEWS Nfcfcef Buys Nostalgia NEW YORK (UPI) - You could see the movie for a nickel and, if you arrived early enough, buy the ticket from the director of the film.' Sixty years ago to watch a flickering screen with piano accompaniment? Not a bit of it — this was Tuesday in a plush modern movie theater. The occasion was the premiere of Peter Bogdanovich's new film, "Nickelodeon," which opened at 505 theaters across the country at the nostalgic price of 5 cents with each nickel to go to charity Christmas Seals. Seeing the long queues that waited in the numbing cold of the first day of winter wind that blew down Second Avenue, it obviously was a successful gimmick, Those who attended the first showing in New York also met director Peter Bogdanovich at the door. He exchanged tickets for nickels. "It was great fun," Bogdanovich said at the Columbia I & II theater. " Some people would even lay a quarter down and say.'Keep the change.'" The film, starring Bogdanovich's famous pair from "Paper Moon," Ryan and Tatum O'Neal, was expected to gross $40,000 for the first day. That's a lot of nickels — 800,000. Remarking on the long lines Bogdanovich said, "If the prices were right more people would come to the theaters." In the lines there was a lot of good cheer despite the cold. Most customers waited for almost two hours to get in, but as one elderly lady put it, "It's worth it. Seeing a movie at this price is like going for free." Bogdanovich seemed pleased by the good reception. "It's for a good cause and its great to see so many people waiting to see a film of yours that they know nothing about." "Nickelodeon" is a wacky comedy of film cliches about the early days of commercial We want to thank our. many friends for your concern and support. You have given hope" to those we serve.

A former city councilman, mayor and publisher of The Garden City Telegram, Reed was known for his crusades for public improvements. In 1954 he was mentioned as a possible candidate for govenor. Often called Garden City's "FlyingPublisher," Reed was named as man of the year in 1950 by the Hutchison News- Herald staff because he "mirrors in his colorful personality most of the virtues and faults of the territory he has staked out for his own." In 1932, with his cousin Robert Reed and his uncle L.F. of Eureka, Kan., he bought The Garden City Telegram. Robert was managing editor. Jerry was business manager.

(UPI) — Rep. Wendell Lady, R- Overland Park, Tuesday took the first step in fulfilling his promises to be moye responsive to House Republicans if elected. their leader. The new House minority leader appointed a 10-member policy committee to guide the Republican minority in the House. Lady said he will attempt to seek a consensus of members on the issues confronting the 1977 session, rather than proceeding on the basis of his own views alone. Lady named himself; Assistant Minority Leader R. E. "Bob" Arbuthnot, R- Haddam; Caucus Chairman Mike Hayden, R-Atwood; and Reps. Bill Bunten, R-Topeka; Harold Dyck; R-Hesston; Keith Farrar, R-Hugoton; May the blessings of the Christ Child be with you now and forever. We pray for your happiness at this season of splendor. From Mrs. J.A. McMurtrie And All The Employees Plainsmans Supply Inc. 1017E. 13th Hays, Kansas John Hayes, R-Hutchinson; Fred Lorentz, R-Fredonia; Richard Walker R-Newton, and Neal Whitaker, R- Wichita. He said House leadership should represent the thinking of members across the state, rather than a select few. Since he announced for House speaker— before the GOP lost the majority — Lady has been faced with opposition to choosing a leader who, like Gov. Robert Bennett, is from Johnson County. On organization day, not only did the House GOP choose a Johnson countian, the Senate GOP chose another, Sen. Norman Gaar, R-Westwood, majority leader. "Geography, age and political philosophy were considerations in my selection of the committee, and I believe that this group represents a good cross section of the state and the members of our party," the minority leader said. Lady said the policy committee will meet Dec. 30 to give him his first indication of what direction should be taken by the House Republicans — the minority party for the first time in 60 years. "There will be areas in which we will not reach a consensus, and some of them may not agree with the governor, but we will attempt to reach agreement," he said. Although Lady has said he will avoid becoming Bennett's rubber stamp, he did say it is likely his followers^ sjnce ^ey are the minority, will back Bennett's programs- wKen possible, rather than drafting their own 1977 program. f The minority leader cited a string of issues to be faced iby the 1977 session, with school finance at the top of the list. He noted increasing demands for changes in the act, including equalizing of state aid ' for special education. ". Among other issues, Lady said will be proposed tax exemptions and reductions. One proposal is an increase in the personal exemption/on state income tax from $600; to $750. Lady said if most of the minority party supports such a move then he would convey that feeling to the governor who has opposed any tax cut. Lady agreed with Bennett's opinion that passage of a law implementing use-value appraisal of agricultural land should be studied until the 1978 session can act. He said hasty implementation of the constitutional amendment voters approved in November would cause too-many problems.! (ay the Holy Blessed Meaning of His birth be yours at Christmas.
