. CITY & The Arteofia Republic O Phoenix, Tnes., Nov. 4,1969 Wilmot SOME OF THE FACES, SOME OF THE CROWDS: The baseball moguls captured Charley Briley's Pink Pony last night and didn't let go 'til the whee! hours. The dining room zinged like a Saturday night as the diamond brass feasted on a surprise offering of quail 'n wild rice, compliments of the Governor's Commission for Professional Sports (in Arizona). "Does it always jump like this here?" queried a wide-eyed barside observer, "Certainly, white-lied Charley Briley, without breaking a grin. . . While 20th Century's "Great White Hope" was on location in Globe last month, Mike McLean, the casting director, had this kind of a problem: That mining town prides itself in being the "cleanest town in the West." McLean needed eight voluptuous types for the roles of prostitutes. Even if the town had one, he couldn't find a cab driver for directions. All was solved in Phoenix, though. But dambed if I know which agency booked them. * * * THOUGH I'VE SUCCESSFULLY AVOIDED Jerry Lewis movies over the years, side-stepping his new movie houses could be something else. No less than 22 of the Lewis Mini- Movie houses (360) seats) are planned for Our State. The state franchise rights have gone to Roger Cook. The first one rises here (anon) as a showcase. Phoenicians Manny Gooslin and Chuck Beaumont hold the Western franchise rights—with American Airlines' Marie Roncone holding the one on Manny. They'll wed Friday. THE NIGHT BLEAT: Bill Pullen changes the scenery tonight on his Executive House stage. Nadine Jansen's crew steps down, while the vocals and humor of Jo Ann Miller step front and center. It's been too long, Miss M. . . Ron Ryan, his ballads and his following,- continue at Camelback Inn's Catina lounge during the early hours, before Jack White's trio gets social for the rest of the night. And there's a Flamenco guitar, too. Monday's only. Name is Caesar, and he comes for to play. And sing, for that matter. THE TRADE will tell you that Merv Griffin is visiting the Hollywood and Las Jo Ann Miller Vegas markets to hypo the ratings. Has to be. Hours before Merv kicked off the new show, he whispered his plans called to forego the Hollywood swing ("because Carson does it and Bishop's already there.") Original travel plans, two months ago, called for "off-beat" shots in such as Cleveland and Chicago. * * .* ' CONFUSION REIGNS' AT Patrina's; nee "Dominick's" now "Mickey's." The new handle is for Mickey McDermott, the ex-Boston Red Sox slab star, who is in as host of the E. Camelback site of musical owners IF one Tony Hawkins follows through with his purchase from Patricia (Patrina) Anderson. The signs already flashing but the agreement ain't. But however the ink dries, Tom Barton songs and impressions stay on. . . Phoenix' Steve Forman is telling Phx. Symphony sidekicks that his first album on the Capitol label was released yesterday—"The Electric Mouse—Everything I've Got." Forman, known as The Mouse, wrote, arranged and conducted a modern symphony for the contemporary music scene.

Formerly the forests of Michigan, now the Northern Arizona pine and aspen woods. Stylistically, she handles the trees as linear design, with a craftsmanly cali- graphy of oil paint that is laid on at times thick, at times thin. Her linear patterning—both overall themes and small texture—is her own thing. The more stylized the better, since this offsets the sometimes too-too color. The work is consistently lively until you spot the signature which gees stiff and self-conscious, . refusing to integrate with the overall composition. Gary Puckett plans to go solo, but will have Union Gap backing State Fair photography prize "Old 99" by Ed Russ of Glendale, Calif., won the gold medal from the Photographic Society of America at Arizona State Fair. It is one of almost 1,000 photographs and color slides on exhibit in the Fine Arts building at the fairground. Scott Campbell ookees whoop it up 1 1 The Monkees, the original American bubblegum rock group, performed for 6,700 screaming, frenzied enthusiasts last night in the Memorial Coliseum in the first of two shows. The second performance drew about 7,000. Opening the show and backing The Monkees were Sam and the Godtimes, a polished soul-and-jazz-oriented band which used to tour with Ike and Tina Turner. Their renditions of "Come See About Me," "Soulful Strut" and "The Horse" were well received, but the restless crowd made it obvious whom they all. really came to see. Those who imagined, wishfully perhaps, that the group's popularity had- waned since the days of "Last Train to Clarksville" and the old Mon- kees TV show were mistaken, Thunderous applause and screaming greeted Mike Nes- niith, Davey Jones and Mickey Dolenz as they bounced onstage. •After the bit of clowning around which has come to be expected from performers, the show started with the biggest Monkee hit, "I'm a Believer," followed by "Pleasant Valley Sunday," "Tapioca Tundra" and "I Wanna Be Free." While Nesmith, the musically talented member of the trio, contributed a few bits of relatively undistinguished guitar work here and there, Jones and Dolenz amused themselves with the modest demands of the tambourine, the maracas and the cowbell. The crowd, composed mainly of 11-year-old micro-bopr pers accompanied by their mommies and daddies, loved every second of it. Jones, incidentally, has not forgotten his favorite Phoenix girl friend. Thirteen - year - old Rhonda Cook, who lost her left leg in an auto-pedestrian accident on her birthday last year, received a personal visit from Jones, her idol, three days later in reply to a letter. Yesterday Davey paid Rhonda another visit and. plans to spend a part of today in town with her. He reports that she is doing fine and, indeed, she was in the audience last night. Hollywood hotline •/ By MARILYN BECK TV Time Service HOLLYWOOD - I'll point my divining rod, though it's over three months before the Academy awards Oscars, smack in this direction: John Wayne, "True Grit"; Tony Quinn for "Secret of Santa Vittoria"; Peter O'Toole in "Goodbye Mr. Chips"; Paul Newman, "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid"; and Dus- tin Hoffman for "Midnight Cowboy." Which of the five will actually cop that little golden man come April? Not even a seer could answer that one. There's too much besides acting performances to be considered in this town which abounds with emotional, sentimental souls.

Music KTAR- N Jofinny Nl^lffme until 5 a.m By VERNON SCOTT United Press International HOLLYWOOD - It may come as something of a surprise to those over 30 that there is a man named Gary Puckett who is the leader of a singing group named The Union Gap. The element of surprise is that Puckett and company have struggled to rise above the 300 or so "musical groups," that form and dissolve in the acid of hard rock. One assumes singing groups exist because the individuals are afraid to gamble solo. Puckett finds some validity in that and plans to become a soloist with The Union Gap playing behind him — preferably way behind him — at a top-flight Las Vegas hotel. "We formed our group in San Diego in January, 1967," Puckett said the other day. "We have cut six singles and three albums. We've got five gold records to show for it." Recently two of the original five Union Cappers dropped out. Puckett plans to add four new performers, along with brass and other instruments. It is not unusual, he explained, for young rock musicians to drop from one group and form another, or join an established group. "This happened with the Buffalo Springfield, The Byrds, Cream, and Traffic," Puckett said. "A new group called Blind Faith is made up of drop-outs from Cream and Traffic. "Most of the singers and musicians know one another because they organized out here. It used to be called West Coast music. Now most people refer to it as underground music. "I was part of a group called The Outcasts for four months, and we had the shor- test road trip in history. We broke up after three days. "There's more to a successful group than just the sound or acceptance from audiences. Individual members have to dig one another and get along or it won't work." While older listeners may hold their ears to ward off deafness, and others hold their sides with laughter, these anonymous group members are holding fat bankbooks. Groups, unlike such single stars as, say, Dean Martin, Jack Jones, and Elvis Presley, do not enjoy longevity. Oldest and still most popular of the groups is the Beatles. "According to the professionals in the music business the average life span of a group is 14 months," Puckett said. "Some of them go out of business before they make their first record. "But that's to be expected. Groups appeal to the 11-22 age groups for single records and up to people in their 30s on albums. "Personally I hope to be* come a total performer on my own." ?
