Warner's Films Speak Better Than He Does By BOB TIIOMAS AP MoWeTelcvision Writer HOLLYWCX)D (AP) - The audience at the glittering pre- mioro of (he &in Francisco Film F'estival had never seen anytliing quite like it. Jack L. Warner had been called to the stage to be honored for his contribution to the art of the cinema. George Dusheck of the San Francisco Examiner teporled the performance: "Warner read the last page of his speech first, accepted the Golden Gate statuette before It was presented to him and denounced communism for several minutes while (emcee Peter) Ustinov wrung his hands like Easu Pitts." After rambling ribaldly on other subjects "aware of the hoots and insults coming from the audience, he peered out into the auditorium and said, 'Somebody is giving me the goose.' " On the following day, the Fes- ttvai presented a retrospective program of the achievements of the film maker during his 48- year tenure as head of production for Warner Brothers. Ci'if- Ics marveled at the panorama of distinctive films and personalities: John Barrymore in the silent "Don Juan." Al Jolson in "The Jazz Singer" speaking the first words heard In a feature movie. Edward G. Robinson, James Cagney, Humphrey Bogart as the snarling symbols of tlie gangster era. Busby Berkeley's geometric fantasies in the Dick Powell-Ruby Keeler musicals. Betle Davis at her dramatic heights, the young John Garfield in "Four Daughters," Paul Muni as Zola. Bogie in "Casablanca" and "Sierra Madre." with cool-headed showmanship and remarkable taste, yet Hollywood knows him from his public speeches as a buffoon. The real Jack Warner? He remains unseen. San Franciscans learned last month wliat Hollywood has known for decades: that Warner's films speak better for him than he does. Adv for wed pms nov 16 He and his brothers started producing movies in St. Louis back in 1912. The four boys were sons of Polish immigrants, and they started in the film business in New Castle, Pa., with a converted store they called the Bijou. Down through the empire- building years, Jack always operated the studio while his other brothers took care of business matters in New York. Now Harry, Albert and Sam are dead, and Jack rules Warner Brotliers as president and production chief. A vigorous 74, he is often termed "The Last Tycoon." From his desk in the adminis- ti-ation building of tlie Burbank studio. Jack Warner continues to dictate tlie fortunes of a corporation that last week reported an annual gi-oss of $97 million and a profit of $4,663,000 in the fiscal year ending August 1966. Far from slowing down, he is rolling for higher stakes than ever befort. A born gambler, he risked $5.5 million to buy "My Fair Lady" and sank $17 million in its filming. He paid Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton a million dollars each to star in "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf" and allowed it to be filmed with bawdier language than fihn audiences had ever heard before. Both gambles appear to have paid off. Now Warner is spending $10 million or more on another Lerner-Loewe musical, "Camelot," draw" in Brando as Stanley Kowalski, Gary Cooper as Sergeant York, i without a box-office Cagney as George M.

NGW YorM. at PhUadelphia Deputy Premier Praphas Los Angeles vs. CSncinnati at Charusathien said two of the Dayton, Ohio Farm Bureau Chief Hits Federal Controls CHICAGO tAP)-The president of the Illinois Agriculture! Association today said farmers do not need government control of the economy and should support politicians who . see things their way. President William J. Kuhfuss said in a speech prepared for the 52nd annual meeting of the lAA. that fanners have long worked "to be a constructive influence where the laws are made" and now must "become a constructive influence where the lawmakers are made. "We regularly ask our elected representatives to support or oppose a particular bill in order to serve or protect the interests of farm people," he said. "...Where the record indi cates a representative has not appreciated the concerns of farmers, farm people must find people with keener appreciation to represent them. ''I belieye American farmers can best meet the challenge of the future if the master planners of this society will allow farmers to farm," Kuhfuss said in Urging less government control. He said farmers now have the opportunity to "move away from government direction of agriculture" but: "...This new opportunity,,, may also contain the seeds of greater government interference. The reduced supplies of coipmodities held by CCC (Commodity Credit Corp.), recent consumer reaction to food prices, including the housewives' boycotts, the fear that some day we might be faced with food shortages and the rapidly expanding foreign demands, have led some people to advocate all kinds of schemes to bring agriculture under tighter government control in the name of 'protecting the consumer.' As farmers, we must be alert to any and all such efforts. "Actions by the ... executive branch of government earlier this year led many farmers to the conclusion that the secretary of Agriculture (Orville Freeman) and some of his cabinet colleagues were a lot more interested in consumers' political reactions than In the welfare of the farmer." Kuhfuss spoke of the recommendation of the President's National Commission on Food Marketing to establish federal marketing boards guiding pricing of farm commodities. "Such boards could be puppets for the secretary of agriculture to manipulate farm prices and farmers," Kuhfuss said. "Such bojirds could be the final link in the master plan of those who want to make agriculture into a public utility." Kuhfuss also urged "orderly" laws beginning an "orderly" withdrawal of government commodity programs, saying, "If we have learned anything from 30 years of ... government farm programs, we surely have learned that government-held commodities can be used to hold down farm prices." Kuhfuss decried inflation "which is continually pushing up farm costs," urged farmers to work out local government problems through the lAA and said the lAA will continue to seek revenue reform In Illinois. Revenue reform was one of 23 new resolutions the 3,000 delegates to the convention were to consider today and Thursday. The resolutions were made publie by the lAA'i eommittec on tentative resolutions Tuesday, They include a revenue reform proposal taking pressure off the present property tax; an economic statement condemning government efforts to hold down farm prices when they are less than 100 per cent of parity; and a statement laying down guidelines for reapportioning local governing bodies such as county boards. ll <fn>8Qil>>^f.i<ill^WWW<Mi*^W Is polio licked?
