:I2 OREELEV (Colo.) TRIBUNE Thun., April 1Z* 1173 Title only bad part of Geographic special By JAY SHARBUTT AP Television Writer NEW YORK (AP) - There's a. great National Geographic special coming up tonight on the CBS Television network. It's called "The Haunted West." A bad title, but it's the only bad part of the show. It's a brilliantly photographed, well-written, well-edited essay on the old ways of life that endure in remote areas of the modern West. And it does its job with care and respect. It doesn't dwell on "progress" or the encroachments of the 20th century. It does focus on the independent spirit of the West and shows that it's still there if you know where to look for it. The look taken on this show covers four basic areas--the life of the cowpoke, the life bf a small highway town, the religious life of the Yaqui Indians in Arizona and the lives of miners who work for themselves or large companies or both. In my opinion, the best segment is the one on the cowboy life, typified by that of Bruce Shepherd--a friendly, chunky man in his late twenties who signs on with the 12-man crew of a large cattle ranch near Paradise Valley in northern Nevada. The camera is rolling when he's introduced to the boys in the bunkhouse, and they know it. But all they do is slightly exaggerate that fine-honed sense of deadpan humor and newcomer's "welcome" that still characterizes certain areas of the West. "Well, boys," declares the grizzled old veteran who runs the ranch crew, "we got us a new buckaroo here today." It doesn't interrupt the poker game. "You don't look much like a buckaroo to me," drawls one man. "Who's the best cheater in the house?" Shepherd grins. "None of your business," growls a prone form in a bunk. Things move briskly to the process of getting Shepherd a horse, which he has to break himself, and the cattle drive and end-of-the-drive uproar in the small town of McDermitt, Nev. Then comes the small town rodeo, where he plunks down $75 for the privilege of doing about the same things he's been doing the past four months at wages of $251) a month.

It's a fine study and nicely catches both the misery and humor that make up the life of a cheerful, rugged man whose only concession to modern times is a wristwalch. The other segments are almost as good, particularly the one on the lives of "boomers," the tramp miners who still knock about the West trying to eke out livings from one-man mining operations. The entire show has a good feeling to it; it's the same kind of feeling about thÂ« West thit the late Ernie Pyle captured in "Home Country," a wonderful book about his travels in the United States before World War II. "The Haunted West" is a program you should watch. It should prove a rewarding hour both visually and emotionally. As Boyle sees it NEW YORK (AP) - There are times in life when a man should charge forward heedless of the cost. But there are really very few such occasions. What a man really needs to know if he wants to live a long and reasonably content life is when he should back away rather than charge. And when is that?. The answer to that must be -- most times. The trouble with man is that his common sense is at war with his human nature. His nature is to try anything new, to agree with any propos- By HAL BOYLE al, to accept any invitation. This is because he is born with a curiosity 10 times as big.as the one that killed the cat. Only his common sense -- that slender reed - - warns him: 'Hold back," "Not so fast," "Let's wait and see what happens if we do nothing." It would be ideal, of course, if these warring elements in man -- his curiosity and his common sense - were properly balanced. Alas, such is not the case. Human common sense is usually the loser in a lug of war with human curioisty. People in the news WASHINGTON (AP) - Tobacco heiress Doris Duke, several actors, sports figures and representatives of big business and unions were among guests at a White House dinner for Singapore Prime Minister and Mrs. Lee Ktmn Yew. The 95 guests at the Tuesday night affair given by President and Mrs. Nixon included actors Glenn Ford and Edgar Bergen. Former Cleveland Indians pitcher Bob Feller and Olympic diver Sammy Lee were on hand, as well as Vice President Spiro T. Agnew.

TURIN, Italy (AP) - Opera soprano Maria Callas, who once tested the tempers of numerous opera directors, has made her debut -- as an opera director. The newly rebuilt Royal Opera House here was the scene Tuesday night for the performance of Verdi's "Sicilian Vespers," codirected by the 49- year-old Miss Callas and Italian tenor Guiseppe di Stefano. The performance was greeted with thunderous applause from the audience of 1,800 that included Italian President Giovanni Leone and his family.' As for the New York-born Miss Callas, she simply said before her debut: "I'm very happy and satisfied with my new job." WASHINGTON (AP) -- Jerry Friedheim, top spokesman for the Pentagon for the last four years, is being promoted. President Nixon has named, the former editor of the Joplin, Mo., Globe to be assistant secretary of defense for public affairs. The position pays $38,000 a year. NEW YORK (AP) - Dr. Kenneth W. Riland, a Manhattan' physician-osteopath whose clientele has included President Nixon and presidential aide Henry A. Kissinger, has been indicted on charges of evading taxes on $82,000 in income he received as medical fees from patients.

Well, actually, quite a bit. All you have to do is to replace the unconscious habit of saying "yes" with the conscious habit of saying "no." Before long, you'll have more willpower than anybody else in your block -- and you'll be getting in fewer jams. You want some examples to practice on? Well, you'll add to your safety, peace of mind and probably your longevity if you learn to say "no!" to invitations that lead only to disaster such as these: "If you put $5,000 into this proposition, I can probably double your money in a year. Put in $10,000 and I can practically guarantee to triple it." "Go ahead and call his bluff. I'll lend you carfare home if you need it." "Why don't we pool our dough and buy a country place together? Our wives don't get on each other's nerves all that much." "Won't it help the party get off to a faster start dear, if I put two ounces instead of one in everybody's first drink?" "Can't you make it a $20 instead of $10? I'll pay you back Friday for sure." "Why do we need an electrician for a simple job like that? Let's wire it ourselves." "It doesn't look like a booby trap to me, Joe. Kick it out of the way." "Won't it bring out the color better if I turn this knob just a teentsy-weentsy bit?" "Oh, go ahead, and spread the picnic blanket here. I know these vines have three leaves, but a lot of vines have three leaves besides poison ivy." "What do you say if we keep the kid at home this year instead of sending him to summer camp? At his age he won't be much bother." "I'm feeling a bit jaded, too. Why don't we pep up things by swapping wives this weekend? You ask your wife first. -- just to be sure it's okay with her."
