" ' SOMETHING FISHY: If you are. having trouble with your television reception, and also have an aquarium, here's a little test you can try. Try pulling the electric plug on the aquarium, and if the reception improves there's your problem. This advice comes from the Deep River Hydro Commission which in two weeks answered five complaints about interference, and in each of the five cases found an aquarium at fault. The problem seems to be a metal strip used in controlling the temperature in the fish tank. . OUCH: The Lone Ranger and Tonto were sitting around a campfire one quiet night with nothing to do but look for a topic. "Have you ever done anything that nobody ever did before?," asked LR. "Many winters have passed," Tonto began, "since that time. But there was a time. I was walking across the great desert and was very thirsty. Looking for water I dug in the sand, and dug up skull, in many pieces. I saved all the pieces and when I was safe from the desert, I wired them all together and presented the skull to the great chief of our tribe. He was very happy. In fact, he said it was the first time an Indian had wired a head for a reservation."

And that's exactly what the Oril-lia-boro song writer achieved last night. For years Gordon has been living in the Canadian shadows. Acclaimed throughout the U.S. as one of the most promising songwriters of the last two years, he has received little recognition from this country's two television networks. Four years ago Gord was an unknown, singing country songs and making a meagre living on tour with the stars. Then he decided to go it alone, armed with a guitar and a flair for concocting a sonR. His talent led to a management contract with Albert Grossman, long-haired manager and developer of such top-flight folk artists as Bob Dylan and Peter, Paul and Mary. This In turn brought a contract with United Artists rec-. ords and an 'album simply entitled "Lightfoot." His first single, "I'm Not Saying" made a little bit of noise. Then came "Spin Spin." which turned the tide and put the Lightfoot record on radio turntables from coast to coast. Through his publishing affiliation in the U.S.. other artists came to recognize his pleasant turn-of-phrase and turn-of-melody. Peter. Paul and Mary. Marty Robbins and a host of other pop and folk singers recorded his numbers and started setting a consistent path of hits. But in Canada, where it all started. Gord was still a sub-star. He made the personal appearance circuit, attracting large crowd and building a sizeab'e following. Next came television and one-shot guest stints on several CBC shows. With his second album "The Way I Feel." the Lightfoot prestige rose again. Canadian radio stations came out in solid support of the. singer something of a rarity and a feat that even Rich Little, I nine Green and Juliette com bined could not equal and the records sold in the tens of thousands. Last night the CBC's fop variety program, "Show of the Week" finally paid him' the tribute he so richly deserves his own hour. Not particularly big-budget, but his first. Surrounding Gord were Ronnie Hawkins and the Hawks, Bonnie Dobson and Jackie Gabriel, who may as well have stayed at home lor the amount of feeling they projected. Lightfoot and company chose a selection of songs from his old and .new catalogue and staged them in both indoor and outdoor settings. Unfortunately, there was often more meaningless background than entertainers but the un-complimentai'y. settings were the only distraction of an otherwise enjoyable hour if viewers allowed themselves Involvement in the stories of the songs. Accompanied by guitarist Red Shea and John Stockfish on electric bass. Gord supplied the majority of the vocals in his casual, warm style. Many of the songs were new drawn from a soon-to4e released album, "Did She Mention My Name" al-- though some have been performed in concert before the Lightfoot regulars. But Gord was aiming at his new audience with his ' "Show of ' the Week" hour. In the past his attraction has been mainly in' the student bodies and with the young record buyers. Now he Is rapidly gaining adult support. Among the numbers he performed was, "Black Day in July," a song he composed about last year's Detroit riots, which offered no political con- elusion but rather was a touch-'.ing assessment of a city caught up in the fury of internal upheaval. This, which just also happens tcjbe one side of his new single, was one of the highlights of the 60 minutes performed off - camera by Lightfoot, as the screen projected pictures of the motor city mayhem. But, there were, plenty of others like "Wherefore and Why" and "Face of a Thousand People" setting the mood . and conveying the striking Lightfoot lyrical originality. Strange as it may seem, this was only "Show of the Week's" second Canadian musical offering of the past season. And it once again hammered home the point that Canada's top talent is equally as good as the foreign imports. Sooner or later that message will get through to the CBC brjfcs. And perhaps they will restrict some of the money going across the border in favor of more expensive-internal productions. FINISH HIGH SCHOOL IN YOUR SPARE TIME ChVrt do It so wtiy not ytJ?
