10-Uklah Daily Journal, Ukiah, Calif. Wednesday, July 10, 1974 Antique show recalls 'Golden Era' of U.S. It's that time of year again, foffs...timeto pack the kids into the horseless carriage and travel back about 60 years to America's "Golden Era.'.' You'll catch the past in all its giory —. from the Victorian 1890's to the, Rowdy Roaring Twenties — when the Third annual Wine Country Antique and Collectors' Revival gets underway at the Napa County Fairgrounds in Calistoga the weekend of July 12-14. For three nostalgic days and nights, America's Golden Days (ah yes, when there were enough pennies for everyone!) will be lovingly resurrected as revival-goers take a stroll through the living pages of an 1890's Sears catalogue to the race track and promenades of a 1919 country fair. The revival's leading attraction will be the giant display and sale of antique country furniture —from < Hoosier cabinets, round oak. tables and rocking chairs,'to sideboards, trunks and hat stands — hundreds of antique pieces from Northern California^ best collections. Every year these sturdy, handcrafted treasures get harder and harder to find. At the revival, you'll see more country furniture than you've seen gathered in one place in years. When ifcomes to collectibles, once again, the revival will outdo itself with the most impressive antique stained glass collection in California; hundreds of pieces of rare, hardrto- find antique tin ad art; an unusual antique paper products collection; over 4,000 artifacts from Sah Francisco's 1939 World's Fair, and one of the Bay Area's best Hopalong Cassidy memorabilia collections. If you've never witnessed some 16 antique Model T racing cars roaring, round the track, you'll have a golden opportunity to cheer on your hero at the revival's annual racing event. Twice daily, the Bay Area's most intrepid antique dirt track racers will take to their shiny red, yellow, blue and green racing cars for a dash around the fairground's half-mile dirt track and a crack at taking top honors ih the Third annual Calistoga Dirt Track Classic. That other guy next to the driver? He's the rear view mirror when things start to get tight and the tire liicker when the engine dies. Last year's winner made it around the track at an incredible top speed of 81 mph! Today, Calistoga, tomorrow the "500"! „ The roar of engines isn't the only sound from the past that revival-ites will hear. This year's Summer Music Fest at the revival's gazebo will bring forth the sounds of the 20's and 30's continuously during the revival... live and on stage. Heading the bill of musical talent is the famous Caffrey Family with its bluegrass and modern' country sounds. The Greater Carmichael Traveling Street Band will perform the sweet sounds of New Orleans jazz and blues to the accompaniment of the combo's tapdancer and blues singer. Third act on the bill is the Chaos Mountain Boys, who put scat and rockabilly together with jazz and swing and somehow make it all come out just fine. „ Admission to the Dirt Track Classic and the Summer Music Fest is free.

Hollywood: Dreamland with a touch of irony Warm Springs roadblock still stands WASHINGTON (UPI) -The Supreme Court has refused to remove a roadblock set by Justice William O. Douglas to an immediate start on construction of Warm Springs Dam in Sonoma County. Attorneys.for the county and the county water agency have_ taken the matter to the'court' again on "the ground that Douglas acted on the basis of unsubstantiated information, Douglas issued an order June 17 preventing the start of excavation. He said the Council on Environmental Quality had found the environmental impact statement deficient. • County Counsel James P. Botz told the court Tuesday that the county would be irreparably injured by a halt in construction. Tuesday's action was in a brief order without opinion. By FRANK S. SWERTLOW HOLLYWOOD (API) — A sense of irony seems to float above the boulevards and backlots of this city of dreams and make-believe. Only recently some 75 newsmen gathered at the Century Plaza Hotel for a summer cram course in next season's television schedule. Their classroom was the Century Plaza Hotel, a huge glass and steel sphinx that now sits on the backlot of 20th Century Fox. The hotel, itself, was only part of the giant Century City complex of supermarkets, offices and restaurants. They are Fox's tombstones. And there are other cemeteries to Hollywood glory that fill the area. What seemed ironic about this trip was that these newsmen attended a convention in a city where two decades ago the mere mention of the word TV would have sent a movie mogul screaming through a sound stage. But, no more. Hosanna! Today, TV is the king of Hollywood. Movies still are being made, but fewer and fewer. Now the great houses of film: Columbia, Warner, Universal, and the others derive much of their livelihood from television. , One only has to walk down the star-lined streets: Sunset, Vine, Hollywood, to see decay spreading down these fabled thoroughfares. \ [ Instead of posh bistros and. dubs of the Sunset strip, one has to pick his way through a long line of honky-tonk: massage parlors and topless bars. Instead of starlets on every corner, one bumps into Jesus Freaks inveighing against sin. If one lived in New York, the gold stars that line Hollywood streets would have been ripped out of the pavements by the muggers. But this is Hollywood, a city where the muggers are given 10 per cent and the title: "agent." But the real irony about Hollywood is that for all its past, present and future glories, it seemT^to be the ultimate caricature of itself. Franco is respon to phlebitis treatment MADRID (UPI) - Generalissimo Francisco Franco spent a quiet night and is responding well to treatment for the potentially^ fatal inflammation of the veins in his right log, his doctors said .today. The 81-year-old caudillo (commander) was hospitalized Tuesday suffering from phlebitis, the same ailment that has plagued President Nixon. "His excellency the chief of state has spent the night perfectly well, without abnormality of any kind, and his complaint is responding vary favorably," said a medical bulletin issued at the Francisco Franco Medical Center. A hospital spokesman had said earlier that the inflammation in Franco's leg was "disappearing and he has no fever." Doctors said Franco watched a bullfight on television hours after entering the hospital . shortly before noon. They said there were no plans for surgery. Franco's wife Carmen spent the night with him, and the aging leader's only child, Carmen Marquesa de Villaverde, rushed back from a visit to the Philippines to be at his bedside. , The announcement of Franco's illness —his first hospital stay since a hunting accident 12 years ago —caused surprise and shock among supporters. Secretary of State Henry A. Kissinger had to cancel a scheduled call on the aging leader Tuesday during the last day of the U.S. diplomat's tour of Western Europe. Military sources said top commanders met to discuss the possible consequences of the illness. Members of the government lined up outside his hospital room to wish Franco well. . v . Prince Juan Carlos de Borbon, the 36-year-old heir to Spain's vacant throne and Franco's hand-picked successor, was among the visitors. The Spanish constitution provides for Juan Carlos to become head of state within eight days of Franco's death or incapacitation. The document also calls for him to be caretaker leader if Franco suffers a prolonged illness. Juan Carlos returned from a Mediterranean vacation the night before Franco's hospitalization and spent an hour with the chief of state at the hospital. Phlebitis, an inflamation of the veins, is relatively harmless unless blood clots penetrate the lungs or heart. Doctors reported treating Franco with anticoagulant injections to prevent clotting. | Best | sellers AS OF JULY 1, ifM FICTION ' 1. WatershlpDown, by Richard Adams. 2.
