FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 13, 1970 In Hollywood By VERNON SCOTT UPI Hollywood Correspondent HOLLYWOOD (UPI) -The American Humane Association has its own movie classification system which equivocates a peat deal less than the Motion Picture Association of America. The men who grade films as G, CP, R and X attempt to sort out the degree of revulsion, sexuality and brutality In each picture. Not so the humane society. It has two categories: Acceptable and unacceptable. • If they think an animal is mistreated during the production of a moviee, the humane functionaries slap an unacceptable rating on it asking all dog, cat, bird, snake and newt lovers to avoid the tainted motion picture. Almost all movies filmed in Hollywood rate acceptable because it is customary to have an AHA representative on the set to see that animal performers aren't abused or otherwise mistreated. Landing Safe and Soft When a galloping horse plunges off a cliff or topples head over tail, his landing is generally safe and soft. That's why the humane people are on the set ** In its recent bulletin the AHA classified as acceptable: "Chisum," "Dirty Dingus Magee." "flap," "H.- Fleet, Robber," "Little Big Man," "Monte Walsh," "Movie," "Rio Lobo" and "The Wild Country." All are American films. Those stamped unacceptable were: "El Condor" (filmed in Spain), "Macho Callahan*' (Mexico 1 , "Patton" (Spain, "Soldier Blue" (MexicoY "Valdez is Coming" (Spain). Apparently in the two countries where bull fighting is a national mania, rough handling of hoofed, beaked and scaled performers is no big deal. But bullfighting is black listed by the AHA. The unacceptable pictures were American • made, but filmed abroad. Perhaps the loudest objection was voiced over the apparent shooting of two mules blocking a key bridge in "Patton." The scene depicts the colorful general shooting the animals to clear the way for his troops. "Foul!" cried the AHA. Stuio Pleads Innocent "Innocent," came, the answer from 20tb-Century-Fox. Observers, on , the scene disclaimed knowledge of whether the mules were in fact donkeys. Is it less humane to kill mules than donkeys became a side issue. Someone also declared it was virtually impossible to teach either mules or donkeys to lie down and play dead on voice command. The most effective way to have them act dead is to dispatch them with a bullet. An unofficial spokesman for 20th Century-Fox said, "Look at it this way. Those were very old animals. They were sick and dispirited. They had come to the end of the trail." The man's voice quavered with emotion. "If those mules — or donkeys —were shot, it was the humane thing to do. Believe me."

Tipton, Indiana THE TIPTON (INDIANA) DAILY TRIBUNE ON THE LIGHTER SIDE By DICK WEST WASHINGTON (UPI) Along with our other problems, there is a lot of unrest these days in the insurance business. .The main trouble,, as I understand it, is that people are experiencing disasters of the type they are insured against. Motorists with auto insurance are having traffic accidents, merchants with crime insurance are getting robbed, workers with medical insurance are becoming ill, and so on. That sort of thing is undermining the very foundation of our underwriting system. Our insurance system, as everyone knows, was founded on the principle of insuring you against catastrophes that never happen. Reverse Psychology It operates on the assumption that T most of the robbery victims will be • workers who don't have anything worth stealing,' that most of the medical expenses will be incurred by healthy motorists and that the bulk of the traffic accidents will be caused by merchants who don't own cars. The insurance companies don't have much patience with people who insist on collecting the benefits their policies provide.iand I don't blame them: If the time ever comes when a large • percentage of the policyholders actually need the insurance on which they pay. premiums, then it is obvious that the system no longer will work. Let us say, for example, that you wish to take out insurance against being perforated by woodpeckers. If you happen to live In a desolate area where no woodpeckers have been seen for at least 50 years —fine. No problem. Nearly any. agent who handles woodpecker insurance will happily write you a policy. But suppose you move to a wooded area' where woodpeckers abound. Again no problem. To Keep in Good Graces. Anytime a woodpecker vents you, you simply have the aperture plugged at your own expense. That keeps you in the good graces of the insurance company, which might otherwise cancel your policy. Paying your own insurance benefits also has another advantage: It helps keep your premiums low. Let's fact it—if TODAY'S ALMANAC Today is Friday, Nov. 13, the 317th day of 1970. The moon is full. The morning stars are Venus, Mars and Jupiter. The evening stars are Mercury and Saturn. Those born on this date are under the sign of Scorpio. British author Robert Louis Stevenson was born Nov. 13, 1850. you rjn. to the insurance company every time you are impaled by a woodpecker, the premiums soon will be so high you can't afford to keep the policy anyway. The only other alternative is insurance insurance. That is, you take out a policy that insures you against having your other policy cancelled.

In 1933 workers at the Hprmel Packing Company in Austin, Minn., staged the first recorded sit-down strike in the United States.
