English Dramatist Criticizes 2 Extremes By William Glover NEW YORK (AP) - peter Shaffer, a playwright with an uncanny box offjcc record, has no intention of settling down. "I don't want to tic myself ever to one creative area," he says. "What sometimes disappoints me about other writers today is the way they plow the same, field over and over."

AHULTS 90c land's bumper crop of new dramatists, Shafer is the most difficult to classify — a genially articulate critic of both the commercial establishment and its most ardent foes. "The theater !n New York, London and Paris is all a sep- ulchre," he insists. "I just want to do my bit to ma&e it a little less so. "On the other hand, I regard th« recent rush to the undisciplined stagecraft of'revolt'as just a phase. I cannot stand and I resent an age that regards 'well-made' as a term cf theatrical abuse." , Shaffer now is busy with rehearsals of "Black Comedy," due on Broadway Feb. 7 starring Lynn Redgrave, Geraldine Page, Michael Crawford and Donald Miller. It is only his fourth stage offering since Shaffer somewhat belatedly — at age 32 — turned to dramatic effort. That was in 1958 with "Five Finger Exercise," a resounding critical and public triumph. From that examination of an upper-class family in turmoil, the bespectacled author turned to "The Private Ear and the Public Eye," a dual glimpse of youthful mischief. He followed with "The Royal Hunt of the Sun," a piece of historic pageantry about the fall of the Inca empire. Each added to his reputation as a man to watch, but Shaffer dismisses them all with: "Plays die once you're done with them." "The next Is the one that interests you. When you see them a couple of years later you feel quite different and unsatisfied — which I hope is a healthy thing." His First Farce "Black Comedy" is Shaffer's first brush with farce ("Farce can be very purging, but the (rouble with most is they go on and on"). It was commissioned by Britain's National Theater, as a contrast on a double bill with Strindberg's "Miss Julie." A . . • . en a visit means so^ much Few experiences are more gratifying than a visit with friends during family emergencies. That is why we at Ryan Mortuary go to great lengths to encourage friends and acquaintances to visit families involved in a funeral experience. Our fine facilities, comfortable surroundings and personal attention help make personal visits satisfying and helpful. Personal concern for family and friends, frequently far beyond expectation, is but one of the many responsibilities that contribute so much throughout the entire funeral experience. It is an example of the thoroughness and personal attention with which we serve Salina families to their complete satisfaction. It is another reason why so many families recommend Ryan Mortuary. We hope you will, too. Ryan Mortuary Kenneth R. Ryan Guy R.

By Bob Thomas AP Mov:e-TV Writer HOLLYWOOD (AP) — For that tidy minority of book collectors who specialize in niovie subjects, this Christmas season offers the chance for a bountiful harvest. Whereas movie books used to trickle out of publishing houses, they now come in a flood. The man who knows is comedian Ken Murray, who may have the most extensive private co'lec- tion of film volumes. "Now I'm running out of shelf space, not to mention money," says Murray of his specialized bibliophilia. He started collecting many years ago when hs was a movie-struck vaudevillian. Prizes Some prizes of Murray's book collection are a 1916 biography of D.W. Grlf'ith by his wife; a 1923 book on Wallace Reid by his mother; "My Trip Abroad" (1S22) by Charlie Chaplin; 'Confessions of an Actor" (1926) by John Barrymore. Other biographies include those of Marie Dressier, Lillian Gish, Vernon and Irene Castle, Jeanne Eagc's, Mary Pickford, Douglas Fairbanks, Adolph Menjou, Edward Arnold, Harold L!oyd, right down to Linda Christian and Hedy LaMarr. "Most of the books are trash, but they are ideal for my research,'' said Murray. Best of the books, he feels are "Goodnight, Sweet Prince," the Barrymore biography by Gene Fowler; Bosley • Crowther's books on MGM and Louis B. Mayer; and the early film history, "A Million and One Nights" by Terry Ramsaye. The New Ones Here are some of the new books on movie subjects fer the Christmas buyer (some are offered at reduced prices pre-holiday); "Double Exposure" (Delacorte, $15) by Roddy McDowall. Porlraits by the actor-photographer with word pictures written by celebrities about other celeb- -ities. The coffee-table book of :he season. "All Talking, All Singing, All II McClure Leaves The Virginian" Doug McClure has been set lo star opposite Jill St. John in Universal's forthcoming Technicolor swashbuckler, "T h e King's Pirate," which goes before the cameras soon with Robert Arthur producing and Don Weis directing from the screenplay by Paul Wayne.

BUT DID YOU KNOW WE HELP LIGHT EVERY CITY PUBLIC SCHOOL, TOO? We do! Indirectly, of course, but we do. Because like you, Electric Cooperatives pay property and sales taxes. And that's where most of the money comes from for school buildings. For blackboards. For desks. For teachers. Perhaps you've heard Electric Cooperatives don't pay taxes. It just isn't so! We don't pay income tax. Maybe that's where some folks are confused. And the reason we don't pay income tax is that we're organized as a non-profit corporation and have no stockholders. Any money left over after expenses at the end of the year, is paid to or accrued to the benefit of our consumer-owners. There's no profit to tax! But property tax and sales tax, we do pay. We expect to. We want to. We think it's money well spent. Don't you? THE ELECTRIC OF KANSAS
