12 Golesbura Reflister-Mail, Galesbura, III. Thursday, Sept. 26, 1963 Negro Actor Has to Live In a Hurry By HAL BOYLE NEW YORK (AP)-" I think of life as a struggle," said Sidney P6fticr, "and a struggle at the core of which is man's effort to fashion order out of chaos. "Because he has a mind and a brain, he is predoomed to this struggle eternally." At 39 Poitier, a man who says he "had to live in a hurry," is rated by many as the world's greatest Negro actor. Although he feels that personally he is the exception to racial discrimination in the theater—if there is an exception'" — Sidney has taken a leading role in the fight against segregation. "I have to be active in it," he 6aid, "because I believe that out of that chaos must come social order. And part of that order will be integration." Poitier's own life has been a victorious struggle against ignorance and poverty. Raised in barefoot and happy freedom on an island in the Bahamas, he came to this country at the age of 15 after only one year of formal schooling. Before he joined the Army, which trained him in physiotherapy, Sidney worked as a longshoreman, ditch digger, pin boy in a bowling alley, truck driver, store clerk and parking lot attendant. It was after leaving the service In 1945 that he decided to become an actor. He set out in an intensive program of self-education, listening to the radio to improve his pronunciation, endlessly reading and studying the dictionary to build his vocabulary. He worked as a janitor to support himself while taking acting lessons. "It was lonely work, and I hate loneliness," he recalled. "But loneliness has been my partner all my life — and still is to some extent. "I don't lead a social life. I don't go to dances or night clubs. I am as much of a recluse as I can be and not have it too noticeable. My greatest recreation is TIZZY By Kate Osatin etc*** • WJ If WK kb TM, I* 9X M. 0* *l think 1 did something wrong.

Prairie 342-5161 doing things with my three children." Poitier won recognition from critics in such stormy pictures as "The Defiant Ones" and "The Blackboard Jungle." In his latest Mm, "Lilies of the Field," he plays a low-key role as a wandering workman who comes to the aid of five refugee nuns trying to build a chapel in the Arizona desert. "I've been the angry young man for too long," he said. "I want now to do pictures that make people feel glad they're human and that point out being alive is fun."
