Campaign Expenditures Are Disputed (By Iowa Daily Press Association) DES MOINES — How much did he candidates for governor spend this election? Robert D. Fulton, Waterloo Democrat, admits to spending "well less than $100,000." Fulton said this was about one-fourth of what Gov. Robert D. Ray spent in his bid for reelection. Ray retorted that Fulton's estimate that he spent in the neighborhood of $400,000 is "ridiculous." Gov. Ray, former Republican state chairman, thinks Fulton (Political Advertisement) Vote For RAY F. REICKS Democratic Candidate for CARROLL COUNTY RECORDER May I continue to serve you Please exercise your right to vote. TUE., NOV. 3 8 Times Herald, Carroll, la. Monday, Nov. 2, 1970 has spent more than he has. Ray said he personalty has stayed away from the finances in his current campaign. "But, from what I've observed he (Fulton) has more television than we have and I think he has more billboards ..." The governor said his campaign committees haven't spent as much "as it cost last time" when he was elected. Gov. Ray said a lot of the campaign funds spent on advertising are channeled through the Republican state central committee, and that "I plain don't know how much is being spent, but it isn't $400,000." Although the candidates for governor are personally limited to $15,000 in their general election campaigns (half the salary of the office), this is easily short-circuited by setting up campaign committees to handle funds. This practice has been going on for years.

Civilisation Comes Via TV to U.S. By ROGER DOUGHTY NEW YORK (NEA) —, To most people, Civilisation (it's spelled with an "s" because it was made in England), the 13-part guided tour of 1.600 years of paintings, architecture, sculpture and music now being shown on the Public Broadcasting Service, can best be described as a cultural experience. But fo Michael Gill, who directed many of the episodes, the show might have also been titled How to Spend Four Months Being Robbed, Swindled and Arrested. Trying to get some of Western civilization's most important events from the Dark Ages to today boiled down to 13 hours of television film (the results can be seen every Wednesday at 8 :30 p.m. local time on PBS stations) is a staggering idea. But art historian Kenneth Clark and the British Broadcasting Corporation decided to give it a try. "One of the nice things about the BBC," says Gill, "is that it will try anything." Clark's original idea, Gill remembers was to shoot the entire series in his study. "He was just going to sit there," says Gill, "and lecture on the last 1,600 years, but we managed to convince him that that would be bloody boring and that we should travel around Europe filming places related to the project, like the Vatican. It took four months to complete the trip and there were more than a few times when I wished I had listened to Clark and left him alone in his study." The Civilisation company's first taste of civilization as we know it today, Gill recalls, came in Ireland, where they wanted to film some gypsies. "We found some traveling along with their wagons," the director says, "and we filmed them for several hours. When we had enough their leader came to us and wanted to know if we were going to pay them. So we said, of course, and offered them a fee of about $20, at which they practically threatened to destroy our cameras. They told us that film people always have plenty of money and they'd like about $100,000. It took quite awhile to negotiate a deal. But it was in Italy, the cradle of so much of the art and culture that Civilisation captures, that Gill and company were put to their toughest tests. "The Italians," he explains, "love to hold you for ransom. It's an art with them. We had to have some scenes at the Vatican, the Vatican was well aware Lord Clark and Bust Across the centuries, Lord Clark, host of the British Broadcasting Company's 13-program television series Civilisation, now being seen in the United States, discusses a bust of Charlemagne. that we had to have them and that ended up being the most costly segment in the series. We also had to pay in advance. They kept telling us they were having second thoughts about allowing our film crews in, but as soon as we met the financial demands they treated us like honored guests." Civilisation crew members managed to get arrested twice in Rome, both times for having equipment on location that wasn't listed on a permit at police headquarters (that's the law there), but got off after paying fines. Despite the problems along the way, Gill and friends completed Civilisation and it won all kinds of critical acclaim when it ran on the BBC last year. "It did so well," says Gill, "that Clark became a lord because of it. He's now Lord Clark of Saltwood, of all things." In England, the show was more popular than Laugh-In, a prospect that isn't likely in the United States, since many Ameicans find network fare to their liking and don't take the time to see what Public Broadcasting has to offer. Still, Gill isn't worried. "There's an old saying," he smiles, "that fine wine needs no push. It will make it on its now." Whether that will prove true in the United States, where the typical televiewer is more accustomed to the less subtle delights of beer or Scotch on the rocks, remains to be seen. That may prove to be the difference between civilisation and civilization. The harp is considered the oldest of stringed musical instruments.
