(Ark.) Courier V»w - Timtar, March 1, 1W~ Pi^i Hvf Sap Run Is Here It's "sugar'n" time in many of the areas where syrup and other delicacies are made from maple sap in the early spring. Harvest begins when the sap comes out of hibernation deep in the tree's roots and moves toward the top —in late February or March. Producing states include Vermont, New York, Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Michigan, Wisconsin, Minnesota and Maryland. THE TRADITIONAL method of gathering the tree's fluid Is to insert a spout in the tree, as shown above right, and then hang a bucket on it such as pictured top left. The harvester then periodically gathers the syrup as the farmer, top right, is doing. A new method involves a plastic sack container attached to a special frame that is topped into the tree. Either way, the juice finds its way to file sugarhouse at right, for boiling and evaporating into sweet syrup. It takes about 35 gallons of sap to Bake » gallon of maple syrup. *••••••••• ••*•••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••£ WILSON NEWS MRS. W. A. HOGAN, Jr. and Mrs. J. N. Bourland, Sun- Hollywood Revives the Studio Tour By BOB THOMAS HOLLYWOOD (AP) - Want to see the inside of a movie studio when you make your trip to Hollywood? Now you can do it two ways: as a plain sightseer at $3 or as a champagne-sipping V.I.P. for $50. The prestige tour is the latest wrinkle in a new Hollywood industry. In olden days, wily Uncle Carl Laemmle charged 50 cents a head for tourists to stand behind a glass wall and watch movie actors at work. The sound era ruled out tours, since a bystander's cough could ruin a take worth thousands of dollars. In recent years the major studios, eager to explore new avenues of revenue, have been welcoming tourists once more. Some of the lots began allowing jxcursion buses to drive Ihrough the studios, the patrons seing limited to a look out the window. Universal, where Uncle Carl once charged for a look-see, made the studio tour financially respectable. Starting with two trams in 1964, the company began inviting outsiders to see how a studio operates. Customers amounted to a half-million in 1965 and 800,000 in 1966. The projection for this year is 1,200,000, at a price of $3 for adults, $2.60 for juniors, $1.50 for children and no charge for tots under 5. The studio reports that it now employs 200 tour personnel during the peak summer months, operates 20 trams, costing $35,000 apiece; and has sunk a total of $3 million in attractions for the visitors. -The tours have been extended to weekends, when the studio is not in opera- ion, and night tours will soon ic added. Quite naturally, the other studios have cast a covetous eye at he Universal operation. Lately 20th Century-Fox has been of- 'ering the red-carpet tour for ,hose who want something a itlle bit better. The man in charge is handsome Barry Coe, a contract actor on the lot for 11 years. Coe said that he went to studio boss Richard Zanuck with his idea: Since 20th Century-Fox had no back lot to entertain visitors in the mass, why couldn't the studio offer a deluxe tour for a limited number of guests? "Why not?" replied Zanuck, and he gave Coe the go-ahead. The former actor worked out a schedule to appeal to the important guest. The party of viso- tors — three to six in number — would be picked up by a limousine at their hotel or residence and whisked to the studio in mid-morning. A hostess and photographer would accompany ;hem in a tour of the sets and departments. They would be shown Ihs day's rushes, lunched in the commissary, transported to witness shooting at one of pany's other three lots, • then returned to the Westwood studi* V.I.P. lounge for a cocktail party. The cost per V.I.P.: $50. "Business has been very good," reported Coe, "although we are in a hiatus period now because there are no features shooting on the lot. "The tours haven't made any money for the studio, hut we figure we've made some.good friends — in high places.":: NEW YORK (AP) — Sam | well as pelts," she remarked. Jones is a traveling lady who' earns $60 an hour and likes to take a fur rug with her wherever she goes. 'I loathe being cold," she explained.
