The critic's view Dr. Howard Skinner, and the G r e e l e y P h i l h a r m o n i c Orchestra played host to guest violoncellist Glenn Garlick at Sunday afternoon's Greeley .Concerts peformance. The rather ample audience greeted Mr: Garlick with a well- deserved standing ovation. Mr. Garlick chose the "Sinfonia Concertantc" by Russian composer Sergie Prokofiev as the vehicle for what may be considered his h o m e c o m i n g appearance. Prokofiev's knowledge of orchestral instruments, and his skill in writing for them was of the;highest order. The soloist is given most demanding material of quite varied nature. Lyric passages appear which demand high skill with the bow. Bravura passages exploit the fingerboard technique of the soloist to the utmost. The audience heard a mature Sinatra's White House gig success WASHINGTON (AP) Frank Sinatra's appearance at the-White House was a success: President Nixon not only led a standing ovation for the singer but praised him effusively and ma'de a golf date with him for July. Entertaining at a state dinner, for Italian Prime Minister Gullio Andreotti Tuesday night, Sinatra smoothed over the bad notices he got for an earlier Washington engagement during Inauguration week. Nixon introduced Sintra as a man of humble beginnings who never learned to read a note of music. But lie became "what the Washington Monument is to Washington--he's the top," the President said. Cables End CARRY OUT SERVICE PIZZA AND BEER 1105 26th Ave sounding performance by Mr. Garlich which was satisfying in multiple ways. Many of the audience were among those who have followed Mr. Garlick's career for a number of years. This performance certainly confirmed the hopes of this group. In addition to an excellent performance by the soloist, the orchestra fared well in presenting the difficult Prokofiev work. The implication of the title, "Sinfonia Concertante," is that the orchestra will play more than an accompanying role in the performance. R h y t h m i c problems abound. Intonation skills are demanded. Balance is critical at numerous points. Prokofiev's mild, but continuous dissonances create,' a myriad of performing problems. , The orchestra rose to the occasion with a strikingly good performance. Sunday's concert began with Mozart's "Overture to the Marriage of Figaro," and closed with Respighi's "Feste Romane." The Overture, done with a Classic sized orchestral group, was an adequately done opener. "Feste Romane," on the other hand, raised several questions. Respighi's compositions have not endured the years well. Their effect on the listener is too often that of a commercially oriented imitation of Debussy. Respighi's harmonic materials have become too predictable. The element of surprise in his music is achieved only through secondary devices. However one must again note a composer who possessed enormous knowledge of the orchestral instruments. The blend is not an entirely happy one. The Greeley Concerts Association has had a highly successful season. The remaining performance will present the "Missa Solemnis" of Beethoven. May we hope for a conclusion that will balance the remainder of the season? Hos successus alit: possunt, quia posse videntur.

Louise Lasser, Woody Allen's ex, coming into her own 'notoriety' EDITOR'S NOTE -- Louise Lasser is prohnhly best known for doing television commercials and being the nx-wlfe of comic Woody Allen. Now costarring in a comedy called "Slither," she's coming into her own, as she puts it, "notoriety." Hy KVE S1IARBUTT Associated Press Writer NEW YORK (AP) -- Louise Lasser is a pretty, Ail-American type actress who doesn't look crazy. This may be the reason she often appears in movies about people who do. Now she is co-starring in a comedy caper called "Slither." She plays the wife of a balding saxaphone player who, with three others, is looking for 312,000 embezzeled dollars while chased by two" sinister black camper trucks. Before that, she was the real- life wife of comic Woody Allen and appeared in four of his movies, including "Bananas" and "Everything You Wanted to Know About Sex." Divorced from Allen, Louise thinks she's finally coming into her own success or, as she puts it, "notoriety." A native New Yorker, she is the daughter of a tax expert who encouraged her theatrical ambitions. She studied political science at Brandeis University as well as working with amateur theatrics. She decided, eventually, to drop the amateur and worked in summer stock as Dorothy in "The Wizard of Oz." She auditioned for David Merrick and was hired to understudy Barbara Streisand in "I can Get It For You Wholesale,"on Broadway. Eventually she replaced the star and launched her stage career. Louise has regularly appeared in television commercials. "They give you a great deal of freedom and a day's work is good camera acting experience. "I don't think appearing in them is invalid for actors. It's no more prostitution than situation comedy. People certainly don't live the way that's shown on television, either," she added. She said there are specific reasons for selling products in commercials and it's easy to turn down the ones you don't want. "Suffering financially is a shallow form of suffering," she says. "I have different priorities. And perhaps each film gets more tedious. Who knows? I can wait and see." A New York and Los Angeles person, in order to keep up with her acting commitments, Louise lives with two dogs, one a mongrel and the other a Pekinese. "Part of me is very shy, likes to read and stand aside to let . others do things," she said. "I'm the sort of person who can't listen to talking radio early in the morning. Mornings are very pure for me. I prefer New York and coffee and classical music. And if I'm not in the mood for classical stuff, I know something's wrong." An actress who "wants to go deeper into myself," Louise looks ahead to more comedy and straight roles. She will appear in the television film, "The Lie," which had, she said, the first challenge for her since acting classes. 'Hanging judge' coming to town · "The Life and Times of Judge Roy Bean" is a western chronicle loosely based on the life of the Southwest's legendary "hanging judge," starring Paul Newman in the title role ; and directed by John Huston, will begin its local engagement Friday at the Cooper Twin Theaters. An outlaw wanted for a variety of frontier crimes, as the film opens, the future "judge" takes over a desolate West Texas outpost singlehanded, and proclaims himself "the only law west of the Pecos." As the years pass, he prospers by having his "deputies" round up outlaws- practically everyone in the area-hang them and confiscate their property. The town grows into a sizeable community, complete with oil well rigs. Throughout this period, the judge is enchanted by a woman he has never met, actress Lily Langtry-'The Jersey Lily"played by Ava Gardner. Also starred are Jacqueline Bisset, Tab Hunter, Stacy Reach, Roddy McDowall, and A n t h o n y P e r k i n s .

Of the two, he rather favors the drama, "Mack and Mabel," based on the Mack Se'nnett-Mabel Norman romance. "I've been reading ,everything I can find about Sennett," Bobby says, "but surprisingly very little has been written, only three books, and they all contradict each other." Bobby is a remarkably happy man who loves his wife, loves his work and loves being able to live in New York, even though he was a California boy. "I like opening nights," he says. "California is a great place to be dull to death. "There's so much going on in New York. In California my friends polish their cars and go to analysts. "It's a funny thing, but when I go to a party in California, everybody is talking about his shrink. In New York I never hear an analyst mentioned. "In New York you're never bored, because going out for a loaf of bread is an emotional experience." Bobby is married to Elaine Joyce of the Broadway hit "Sugar." "We've been married five years," he says. "She picked me up one night in P.J.'s (a Los Angeles discotheque). I wanted to marry her, because I really loved her. Sometimes you have to wait all your life to fall in love. I'm happy that I didn't have to wait that long."
