(Staff Photo by Leo Chabot) Presley Show Heavily Loaded With Standards By Jamei /. Cornet Elvis Presley's third and final Charleston concert Saturday night was much like the first: hectic, exciting, entertaining, and just a little disappointing. "He didn't sing "Kentucky Rain'?" somebody moaned. "No 'In the Ghetto-'?" another asked. Well, he couldn't do everything, although during his three hours and 15 minutes total time on stage here, he tried.. His act included about 20 tunes each time, although most of them were the ·same. A ; 'Big Boss Man" or an "American Trilogy" were thrown in to add variety to a set that was heavily loaded with such standards as "Hound Dog," "All Shook Up," "Teddy Bear," "Don't Be Cruel" and "Love Me Tender." Presley's stage show is a quickly paced affair, with gags, big buildups, solos and sighs firmly planned. Backup singers were well-cued. They stand to sing, then slip back to their stools until the next time. * * * ELVIS' VOICE is still strong -- surprisingly so at times. He is able to rise to high Fires Plague Center YBA CITY, Calif. (AP)-A four-year- old work center for the handicapped has been plagued by a series of fires and fire- bombings and authorities suspect the same person was responsible each time. "We have very little to go on. We don't -know what motivates him," said Police Lt. Robert Smith. He said authorities are "still struggling" with the case that so far has seen one person die. "Wierdo, the Fireball Freak, by his actions is trying to dictate to the community: "Stay away from the Gateway center," said executive director Donald Larson. * * * THE GATEWAY PROJECT serves rural Yuba and Sutter counties. The Yuba City area was in the headlines three years ago when authorities found the bodies of 25 migrant farm workers in shallow graves along the Feather River. A former farm labor contractor, juan Corona, later was cnnvicted of murdering the workers. On Feb. 18, fire destroyed a $110,000 building and $50,000 in materials being assembled by 60 handicapped workers. They were making power pole grounding kits under contract. No one was injured. On March 1, a Molotov cocktail was thrown through a window of Gateway's upholstery shop. It was quickly extinguished, and the shaken employes kept working. On April 6, firemen rushed to the apartment of Don Garrett, Gateway's executive director. They found his body aflame a few feet from the door. Homicide investigators said someone apparently rang Garrett's doorbell, and when lie opened the door, doused him with flammable liquid and set him afire. . « * » LARSON TOOK OVER May 31. "That night some of the staff threw a little pool party for me," he said. "We were swim- rrying and suddenly we saw a lot of sfooke." Two stafrroembers' cars had been firebombed. Review notes, hit them and hold them full-force, yet at other times he sloughs off entire words, refusing to sing them, letting the Sweet Inspirations do the work. It is baffling that he might not be able to do them, but that is the impression at times. On such songs as "How Great Thou Art," however, he shows amazing ability to hit and hold the notes strongly: Presley took some liberty with song lyrics, interjecting remarks into both "Why Me, Lord" and "How Great Thou Art." They detracted from the gospel nature of the tunes and did not set well with .some members of the audience. The transgression, though, was not enough to anger the crowd. Civic Center sound for this concert series was quite good. With speakers suspended above the stage, sight lines from the- audience were not blocked. The orchestra's sound was bright and brassy, loud and highly amplified but not fuzzy. The music carried well to the fully packed far reaches of the arena. '... The capacity crowd Saturday--each of the three shows was sold out--listened attentively to the three warmup acts which seemed calculated to whip the excitement for the star. When Presley appeared, there was pandemonium, and not that many people seemed concerned what he sang, how he sang, or even if he sang. He did, however, and he did it well. The Elvis Presley concert is an enjoyable show, and judging from a remark by Presley on stage Saturday, he might return for more. "If you want us back," he said, "just let us know and we'll do it again sometime." But for now, Presley is gone. latimer's ltd. 809 Quarrier Street Open Monday Nights Final Summer Clearance groups of LEISURE SUITS SUITS SLACKS SPORT COATS SHIRTS SPORTSWEAR GIFTS TIES reductions up to 25% oHsoln final Jyirt Ajnericord mailer charge welcome ^i^^^^f^t : fff^R~ff^.
