20 •«• Friday, Jun» 6, 1969 Norwegian Is Afraid To Become Holly wood Actress & B OSLO, Norway —AP— A Norwegian actress, who recently won two American awards for best actress of the year, is ready to make her first Hollywood movie. But Liv Ullmann, who won international acclaim for her acting in famed Swedish director Ingmar Bergman's "Hour of the WolC" and "The Shame", does not want to be a star, "I'm a little scared of fame," she said. "I'm afraid to lose contact with reality. I fear the way fame can change a person as a human being." Both The National Board of Review and the National Association of Film Critics recently gave her their awards for 1968. "I would never go to Hollywood to be swallowed up by the industry there, or sign a contract for a long period of time without knowing what I would be asked to. do,'' she said. "I will go when — or if — I am again given the chance to work with a superb director on a good script. But I never want to enter the maelstrom." Liv is shocked to see how American directors are given no artistic freedom until they have a very strong position. "If you don't have that position, you should stay away," she said. "And the same goes for acting. "I expect to be able to interpret my part the way i feel is right and true," she said. "! want to feel that what I do is important and meaningful." Liv has been staying with Ingmar Bergman for a while at his peaceful island of Faaroe. Admires Bergman "He is a genius," she said. "He is very demanding to work with because his own effort is so great and he wants a hundred per cent effort out of his actors. "But he is no demon, as some have said. He'll listen and find out what's in the actor, and then he'll lure it out and use it. The fact is that he leaves a lot of freedom to the actor. He's not trying to enforce some desk work that he thought up himself," she said. Liv recently finished her fifth film with Ingrnar Bergman — like most of them in the "karn- merspiel" category: Four persons reacting to each other and to the world. They are portrayed by well-known Bergman characters like Bibi Anderson and Max von Sydow, and Erland Josephson, manager of the Dramaten Theater in Stock- lolrn, in addition to Miss Ullman, "It is hard to convey any of the action in this film because Bergman's form is so special," Liv said. "But I think people tend to put more symbolism into )is films than he did himself. I really think the meaning of his films is usually quite clear."

SP-91 1 Two Part Film Next Next in turn for Liv Ullmann is a two-part filmed epic on the Swedish immigration to Ameri ca, a joint Swedish-American venture, based on the novels by Vilhclm Moberg, "Emigrants" and "Unto a good land." There also is the opening all over Norway of "Ann-Magritt," a Norwegian film bringing together for the first time the "best actress' and "best Actor" chosen this year by the National Association of Film Critics — Liv Ullmann and Per Oscarsson of Sweden. Oscarsson was honored for his acting in "Hunger." "Ann-Magritt 1 is based on a novel by Johan Falkbcrget, long held as a Nobel Prize candidate by Norwegians. The setting is his native mining town of Ro- eros. Miss Ullmann loved to play the idealistic young heroine of the poor mining community — a simple and straightforward person. "She is a fine character," she said. "I am proud they gave me the part. She's part of the national heritage — like Peer Gynt." Does she prefer to play this kind of character rather than the more detached ones of the Bergman films, where interactions between persons are more important than personalities? She hesitates before answering diplomatically: always prefer to work with an instructor like Bergman. But yes, I do like best to portray real human beings — people with character."

Prices Soar - Cost Of Living In Hawaii Tops Nation HONOLULU (AP) — "I know Hawaii has the nation's highest cost of living," the housewife told her husband. "But this is ridiculous!" The woman, a recent arrival, had just paid 88 cents for a head of lettuce that would have cost 20 cents in Los Angeles. A tourist may grumble about the high cost of a Hawaii holiday while sipping a $1.30 beer in Waikiki. But it's the Hawaii resident who pays the highest premium for a place in the sun. According to the U.S. Department of l^abor, the Island State has the highest food prices in the nation. And just about everything else. An executive transferred here was shocked to learn the dingy, rat-trapped home he had just inspected would cost $325 a month. "I wouldn't even live in it for $100," he told the landlady. She shrugged, confident the house would be rented within the week. It was. With limited housing and no rent controls, finding a place to live is a new resident's biggest headache. Lt. Gov. Thomas P. Gill disclosed a recent survey that found only seven homes out of every 1,000 in the Honolulu housing market are available to house hunters. In a report made March 2G, Gill said the average price of a home in Hawaii had jumped about 112,000 since I960. The average price of a single-family dwelling was $28,477, compared to a national average of $15,940. "We can clearly demonstrate that the market price of a single-family home in Hawaii is from 50 to 100 per cent higher than similar housing on the mainland," the report concluded. The pineapple industry is Hawaii's No. 3 moneymaker, behind the military and tourism, and yet a can of sliced pineapple costs up to 11 cents more here than on the mainland. A newspaper survey found a market less than 2,000 feet from the gale of Dole's Oahu cannery selling No. 2 cans of sliced pineapple for 39 cents. In Baltimore, identical cans of the Dole Hawaiian product sold for 37 cents. While the national cost-of-living surveys give Honolulu the honors, behind San Francisco, New York and Chicago, they ignore the Neighbor Islands that comprise the State of Hawaii. Actually, Honolulu is not the nation's costliest city. That title belongs to Wailuku, on the Island ol Maui, the hub of the state's sugar cane industry. Most of the large mainland companies give employes a 10 per cent cost-of-living salary increase when they are transferred here. Persons stationed in Hawaii with the military receive "overseas pay." How do residents combat the high cost of living? Well, you don't wear much clothing. The kids go to school barefoot. And there are no heating bills. But mostly they put their wives to work. "Hawaii has the highest percentage of working wives in the nation," says state statistician Robert Scnmitt. Because of this, family income in Hawaii is generally higher than on the mainland. The median family income here is $8,053, against 16,882 on the mainland. An economic forecast predicts tourism will overtake military spending in the next decade to become the No. 1 industry in Hawaii. And yet some blame tourism for spiraling prices in Hawaii. Honolulu Mayor Frank Fasi urged the legislature to enact a hotel room tax, hoping to ease the Lax dents. burden of local resi- "We are fast becoming peasants in Paradise," he said. The recent Rotary International convention brought 15,000 Rotarians to Honolulu, each of them spending from $50 to $90 a day. A group called the "Hawaii Residents Council" mailed mimeographed pleas to Rotarians, urging them not spend money here. "We are losing our shirts and souls to the soaring cost of living and the excessive greed that tourism brings," the leaflets said. "There is little in Hawaii that you cannot buy for less in your hometown." 'Engineering A Go-Go' Is Cutting ASU Dropout Kate TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — Its originators call it motivation and some one has described it as a game. To the students it's "Engineering a Go-Go." Whatever the name, the result has been a reversal of the dropout rate of Arizona State's engineering school and such inventions as a portable traffic light and an automatic automobile jack. The course, Introduction to Engineering, is the primary course for freshman engineering students at Arizona State. A few years ago there was nothing quite like it in the nation. Now, the new approach to engineering school is firmly established at Arizona State, and is spreading to other campuses. "A Go-Go" was designed to solve a basic problem. Explained a faculty member, Dr. George C. Beakley: "In their first two years of ;university work, many well qualified engineering students lose their motivation to become engineers." Beakley says the freshmen, more than 70,000 a year across the nation, simply lose interest Another designed .that automatically the size of a bolt. a wrench adjusts to "The boys have had inquiries from Switzerland, Germany and several U.S. companies on that one," Beakley says. Other "inventions" include a vibration alarm clock for deaf persons and a built-in jack that will raise a car automatically. Most will never leave the classroom. A few, like the wrench may earn Iheir designers money. "But this is not our purpose," Beakley stresses. Students of ten'seek commer- A THREE WOOD ACE WHITE SULPHUR SPRING W. Va.

That's poor efficiency. We're engineers. We should do better." Beakley, and Thornton W. Price, decided to change that. They, and other faculty members, formed a mock company they call ASCEND. ASCEND purports to be a group of "wealthy businessmen." It invites the freshmen to submit problems involving human physical needs which the student would like to see solved. About 300 such problems are submitted each semester. ASCEND gives the go-ahead to about 30, and the students form "companies" of their own to solve the problems. A chief engineer is selected for each project, and the pace is set. The students work under the chief engineer for the remainder of the semester. Their projects, submitted to instructors in the form of a sales brochure with working diagrams, are sometimes startling. One group invented a portable traffic light, designed to be carried in the trunk of a police car 1 ciai opinions on projects, but JS are not encouraged to actually $| sell them.

I; The goal of the class is to F •; keep freshman interested in engineering, and the goal has been achieved at Arizona State. "We were losing 65 to 70 per cent of our students by their sophomore year," Beakley said, "Now we're keeping 65 to 70 per cent."
