6 Golesbuf9,.Re9istier-Mqjl, Galesburg, Friday, June 22, 1973 Weekend Films in Galesburg Tapped by Cabaret Re-Run By JOHN HOBBS " ' Ir "" 11 1 Best movie toot for the weekend is Cabaret, now playing at the Cinema I. The big Oscar winner of 1972 features a ter nifdc performance by Liza Min- nelJi as Sally Bowles, a nightclub singer in a pre-war German cabaret. Joel- Gray is featured as the grotesque master of ceremonies and Michael York pfayis the conservative English boy who fails in love with Sally. The film was directed by Bob Fosse, and is a remarkable film experience. What is especially unusual is the music, which is exceptionally good. Unlike many Broadway shows which have been made into movies, Cabaret is perhaps better than the original. Rated PG. Also in town: Charlotte's Web, an animated version of a classic children's story. The film is a Hanna-Barbera- Sagittarius production, as John Hobbs Is the Gales* burg Registcr*MaU's tele* graph news editor. are many of the Saturday morning TV cartoons. One difference, this film is fun for the kids, but adults oan also enjoy this faithful interpretation of a favorite story. At Cinema II rated G. One Little Indian, a Walt Disney western starring James Garner (and a camel, according to the marquee). Typical Disney fare complete with kids, animals and a loveablie hero. At the Orpheum, rated G. Swinging Wives, if not the worst movie ever made, it's certainly in the running. A European sex film with a stupid plot about sex-crazed house wives. Dubbed dialogue, filmed in "vivid color" as it states in the ad.

BRANNON WASHINGTON (NEA) A part of any reform debates in 1973 will be what to do about the tax benefits for pension plans. The big Issues will be whether pension promises will be made more secure and Last in a Series KNOTTY PINE TAP Wotoga, III. CLOSED ON SUNDAYS whether coverage will be widened. Of the two issues, the security Issues will be the most important. WILL THERE BE EFFORTS TO MAKE PENSIONS SECURE? The answer has to be yes. Both the administration and members of Congress are pushing their plans. All are mild but if the size of pension promises is to be unchecked, making these promises secure Court Sketch Ban Bothers CBS Chief NEW YORK (UPI) - Richard S. Salant, president of CBS News, today protested U.S. District Judge Winston Arnow's decision to keep an artist from sketching activity in court during the conspiracy trial of eight antiwar protesters. Salant said artist Aggie Whelan was told by the federal udge that she could not attend he trial next month in ensacola, Fla., if she intended o do any drawings—even if she did the drawings later, in private. I protest this unwarranted restriction on coverage of the courtroom," Salant told Arnow in a telegram. "It is inconceivable to me how her sketch activity—out of sight and sound of the courtroom—can in anyway be defined as intrusion or damaging action to the proceedings we are attempting to cover and report."

Whether these small changes now will lead to still tougher rules in the future, we can't tell. WHAT IS PORTABILITY? Some pension visionaries have a dream that someday all employer pensions could be "portable" like the system most college professors are under now. Professors' pensions are generally funded completely and currently with one fund. When a professor goes to a new school he still has his pension reserve — the new school just takes over adding to it. This idea is called portability.. With universal portability, all workers could take their pension entitlements with them from job READ THE WANT ADS! CLOSED This Thursday & Friday OPENING Saturday MASH With Donald Southerland Elliott Gould One Show Each Night at 7:30 Adults Only $1.00 to job (just as they take Social Security). Consumer advocate Ralph Nader has proposed that the present system of pension plans sponsored by corporations, industries or labor unions be replaced by a system of competing fully-funded retirement benefit funds. Each employe would notify his employer which of these funds to send the employer contributions to. If the employe became dissatisfied with the investment performance of the retirement benefit fund, he could switch his share to another fund. The visionaries think that portability would lead to a more efficient economy where workers could freely move to jobs where they could be more productive without the anchor of losing pension benefits in the old job. We are a long way from this. WILL PRIVATE PENSION COVERAGE INCREASE? I think the answer to this is not very much. The Canadian experience suggests that the deduction for employes will not change things significantly. In fact, the Treasury's own revenue estimates suggest that most of this effect will be on government employes wlio are already in pension plans but who have to contribute half the cost out of their own salary with no tax deduction. Giving them a deduction for mis other half wilt be nice for them but it doesn't get more people into pension plans. Part of the reason that I don't look for much in the way of expansion is that the other policy issue of providing more security will make plans a bit more expensive and probably will have some marginal effect on slowing down now employer plans. This doesn't say that efforts to improve security are bad. The social goal should be more pensions, not more pension plans, and providing vesting and funding within present plans will mean more pensions.
