MARMADUKE He was helpin 1 me collect on my route, but he got tired. New Taylor-Burton Movie Due Shortly By BOB THOMAS AP Movie-Television Writer HOLLYWOOD (AP)—MGM is releasing another Elizabeth Taylor-Richard Burton movie hard on the hods of "Cleopatra." It's called "Th c V.I.P's" and it is iK'ing booked into GOO theaters throughout the world in the next several weeks. The aim is obvious—to cash in on "Cleo's" fame. But "The V.l.P.'s" could stand on ils own. This is a problem picture. The problems concern how the rich hold onto their wealth and how they avoid being ruined by it. Author Terence Hattigan came up with an intriguing premise: What happens to a handful of well-heeled passenger,, whose New York flight is delayed in London by fog. The dilemmas: I A .shipping magnate's wife (Eli/abc-th Ta'ylor) has left her husband (Burton) a not ( > at home saying she is leaving him for a gi'golo (Louis Jordan). 2. An Australian wheeler-dealer (Rod Taylor) must get to a New York board meeting to cover a worthless check he has written to save his company. Poge 8 fjardcn City Telegram Saturday. August 17, 1963 3. A Swiss-based movie director (Orson Welles) must get himself and his actress-Doxy (Elsa Marlinclli) out of England or suffer a million-dollar tax loss. Lots of chance for drama here. And it is played for all it is worth, especially when Burton show s up to win back his wife by whatever means he can. Thc dilemmas are solved to the satisfaction of most of the par- tics involved. What about Taylor-Burton? She is as gorgeous as ever, though her figure is a bit ample. Modern drama is obviously her forte, and she delivers without a false note. Burton i s hampered, a.s with Marc Antony, by having to be hang-doggish through most of the film. Dartmouth plac.ckicker Bill Wcilstead of Maumce, Ohio kicked 48 points l:\st season.

Fatal Shake Four Years Ago Today Signs of Yellowstone Earthquake Still Visible EDITOR'S NOTE—Four years ago Saturday a powerful earthquake shook southwestern Montana. It threw a mountain top on a famed trout stream, damming it in an awesome avalanche, and killing 28 vacationers camped in its path. Nineteen of the 28 still arc entombed under 80 million tons of rock and debris. The following tells what the site looks like to a tourist four years later. By GEORGE MOSES WEST YELLOWSTONE, Mont. (AP)—State Highway 287 winds south from the fishing village of Ennis along the broad, pleasant Madison Iliver Valley. After a while, road and river swing cast toward a narrow opening in pine-covered mountains. A motorist unfamiliar with the area wonders when he'll sec signs of the earthquake that threw a mountain top into the river just four years ago, damming it and killing 28 sleeping campers. He doesn't have a long wait. Still miles away, he can see a brown gash in the wall of green pines on the right side of the canyon, almost at its mouth. A s he drives closer, a huge pile of rock shuts out his view. A detour swings him on a winding, climbing road to his left. A sign says "danger." For the next few minutes the driver is busy negotiating the interval between oncoming cars and the unguarded right edge of the road, a disquieting hoight above the rocks. He reaches a parking-sightsee- ing area and is about io ask where the slide area is. Suddenly he realizes he is on it, and has been ever since he passed the detour sign half a jnilc to his rear. To the south, just across the canyon looms the half-mile wide scar left by the slide. It towers 1,000 feet above him. Far below him, in what used to be the canyon floor, the Madison Iliver flows over the slide area in a spillway cut in frantic haste by Army engineers within days after tho catastrophe. The tourist looks behind him on his own side of th e canyon, to the north. He stares almost in disbelief, and sense s for the first time the power of the quake- launched avalanche. Stretching some 100 feet above and behind him is a pile of huge rocks and broken trees. They arc the -high-water mark of the avalanche as it thundered down the canyon, across the river, and rolled fully 400 feet up the other side. Two rock s are bigger than houses. On one has been placed a plaque in memory of the 19 persons buried somewhere under tho slide. The slide rolled across the river and spread out to form a tight dam of the Madison a mile up and down the canyon. Quake Lake is the name given to tlie body of water impounded for five miles upstream by nature's dam-building. It is a clear, deep blue lake. But there's something strange about it. It is ringed with dead pine trees that show the high-water mark reached before engineers punched through the spillway to relieve accumulating water pressure that might have blown the dam and spread chaos in the Madison Valley. Tips of other dead trees stick out all over the lake, especially near the shore. Quake Lake's future for recreation—beyond sightseeing—seems (Uncertain. A short distance upstream Irom the most popular turnout area on tlie dam. They give frequent lectures explaining just what happened. Has the earthquake hint tourist trade? Jnist the opposite. "Lots more people come this way now than did before the quake," a ranger says. A short distance upstream frof Quake Lake is Hcbgen Dam and lake, this one built by man. The earthquake put a crack in Hebgen Dam, causing a rumor tho dam had gone when in fact nature bad added a second one. The qmake tilted Hebgcn Lake, and several stretches of Highway 287, which skirt s the lake, dropped into the water. This trapped 250 other vacationers in the canyon during the night of terror that followed the slide. Signs here and there mark where some of the refugees gathered to comfort each other and await rescue — the wounded via helicopter, others by quickjy bulldozed bypasses where the highway had disappeared. Parachutists of the U.S. Forest Service were thn first to reach the stricken survivors.
