ABC special -features Chinese acrobats Wed., April 18.1913 OREELEY (Colo.) TRIBUNE 28 *By JAY SHARBUTT "AP Televiilon Writer ? 'NfiW YORK (AP) - Mainland China's great leap forward fflM'is going up, sideways and through hoops tonight in an astounding 90-mimite show on the ABC Television network. The program, modestly 'ealle'd "The Greatest Show on the 'Other Side of the Earth," stars Red China's Shenyang Acrobatic Troupe, which made a four-city tour of the United States last December and January. The tour, which drew considerable acclaim, is { part of the gradual thaw in relations be-, tween Ihe United -States and mainland China that followed President Nixon's historic trip to'i%ing early last year. - The troupe kept the thaw going during its tour by unveiling at the start of its show a huge red banner that said,' "Long Live the Friendship Between the Peoples." At the end of the performance, another large red banner was unfurled. It was more specific. It said, "Long Live the Friendship between Ihe Chinese and American Peoples." Those were the only commercials. In between, as those who watch the show tonight may feel, there was a display of physical agility, endurance and grace that was' downright mind-boggling. The troupe, whose art form is more than 2,000 years old, starts off with "plate spinning," involving long slicks on which the performers each spin up to eight dinner plates while doing somersaults, handstands and getting their heads together the hard way. Ho-hum stuff? Okay, the next act on the bill is something else. It's called "long pole feats," in which one man balances a 16-foot pole on his left shoulder while another climbs up and performs an incredible series of gymnastics. And is- joined by a second gymnast. "Trick cycling" comes next. At one point, no less than nine riders join a lady bicyclist for a quick whirl about the stage. The tires don't go flat, and wonder of wonders, neither does the lady. For my dough, the best of the 12-part program comes at the end in the segment called "hoop diving," once called the swallow game because the hoop-divers seem to imitate the flight of swallows. They put two hoops, one atop the other, on a stand. The idea is to leap through the hoop without knocking it over. They do it time and again, even with a second set of hoops. Don't ask me how. Although some may find the show too long--and I'm among them--the pace is strikingly close to that of the old vaudeville shows, with the high spots carefully positioned lo let the audience catch its breath. The camera work seems unimaginative, viewing the show most of the time from the vantage point of the audience at the John F. Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C., where the show was taped. They said there wasn't suf- 'ficient lime to work out olher camera angles thai normally would have been used.

NFAV YORK (AP) -- Things a columnist mighl never know if he didn't open his mail: If you are having trouble balancing your budget, you might keep a bird for a pel instead of a dog, a cat--or a mistress. It costs only a penny a day to feed. Some 7,670,000 U.S. families do have pel birds aboul 26 million of Ihem. Do you really know how sick or well you are? A lest of nearly 1,000 people belween 40 and 103 years old by the American Oplomelric Associalion disclosed that nearly half needed furlher vision and heallh care for body defects many were unaware of. Was Abraham Lincoln the model of humilily he is some- limes pictured as having been? Nol according to John Hay. a While House secretary, who said in a letter to William H. Herndon, Lincoln biographer and onelime law parlner: "II is absurd lo call him a modest man. No great man was ever modest." Hay wrote that it was Lincoln's "intellectual arrogance and unconscious assumption 'of aulhorily" lhal made enemies of some members of his cabinel. In Ihe beginning of the automobile age, most cars were painted black. Today only three per cent are. What the Irade calls "earth tones" are popular now.

Wet statistic: A dry martini addict will hardly even want to dip his toe in the Atlantic ocean when he learns this: it contains 82 quinlillion, 171 quadrillion, 672 trillion, 174 million, 450 thousand and 100 gallons of water--give or lake a drop or two. Hard lo explain: The average man can grip or hand squeeze with a slrenglh measured at 81 pounds, the average woman only 48 pounds. But which sex is usually able lo put Ihe squeeze on Ihe olher in a showdown? Household help: Most experts agree that if you are trying to reduce your grocery bills you should always avoid supermarket shopping when you're hungry. You almost inevitably overbuy. Worth remembering: "Aman who thinks he knows it all is a pain in the neck lo Ihose of us who really do." Skin signs: Tattooing, popular in the lath century even among some members of European royalty, still attracts some people today. A University of Iowa scientist says people gel tatlooed mostly for these reasons: they Ihink it will bring good luck; Ihey want lo show Iheir love for someone or some idea; or Ihey do il on impulse--often while on a spree.
