REGISTER PHOTO BY DAVE PENNEY It was a beautiful day for the canoe races held in conjunction with Vieshea on Lake LaVerne on the Iowa State University campus at Ames Thursday, and Chris Deming, 21, of CharitGn, celebrated A Wet Winner at Ames his victory by diving into the lake.

'It's D.H.Lawrence's Film' By Wayne'Warga © The Los Angeles Times .LOS ANGELES, CAUF./- "We fulfilled our function. We wanted to have people think/yet have the film itself be beautiful. We wanted a visual and' philosophical re-creation of a great novel. The film isn't mine ... it's D. H, Lawrence's film." Judging from the critical ex clamation and lines at the bo office where it/has alreadj opened here, ^rry Kramer who both wrote and produce Lawrence's ''Women in Love,' isn't speaking immodestly. I would appear Kramer mor than fulfilled his-functionr Meeting Kramer after seeing the film is a bit of a shock. A hazy recollection of an old photograph of Lawrence skips across your consciousness. Kramer looks very much like him. Seconds later, you think you're visiting Alan Bates, who also looks like Kramer and Lawrence. But when he speaks it's-pure American and very contemporary. An American (Washington D.C.) expatriate living in Lon don and a. bachelor, Kramer relishes the commotion his firsi film is causing. He has 'been away from America nine years. He can't iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiimimiiiiiiiiii wiiiimmiimmiiinmiimiiiiiiiii remember the last time he was in Los Angeles, except that "it was after Yale ... I'm 34 now. "How can anybody work here? It's so beautiful. Everything is lush and clean. It reeks . of self-satisfaction. "HostUe'jVNewJVork "New York is rampant with hostility and rudeness. I had to go to bed at 10 each night to recover from those people. Here it's the opposite, a center of self-satisfaction, a city realizing it's where it's at. "I wonder what it's like in between-New York and Los Angeles?" Kramer entered the film world .fresh out of Yale and eventually became a story consultant at Columbia ("I found 'The Gpllector.' for. them"! and then assistant to David Picker at United Artists. "It finally became a now or never proposition. U.A. wanted me to go back to New York. I wanted to stay in London and produce films. "So I quit and became a producer, which is to say I became unemployed. "I had, the book exactly three years from the day of option to the opening. I bad always had a secret wish — as, I think, do any people who read a lot and I read for a living and for pleasure — to be a writer. I_was afraid to try. I decided to produce instead. Not by Choice , "But the original writer on 'Women' didn't work out and United Artists wouldn't give me any more money. I became a writer not by choice but out of necessity. I found I rather, like it — I may even give up films after my next "Film, I'm sorry to say, is not a writer's medium. Film ideally must be where the writer and director are the same; rather like Antonioni, Fellini and Bergman. "I'm going to write and direct my next project and then go kill myself." He isn't smiling when he says it and for another scary moment you think of Lawrence. Kramer gets you back to the present by discussing how good California ice cream is, how lush the fresh fruit is, how amused he is to be staying in a Beverly Wilshire hotel suite that costs $77 a day when, in fact, he can only work "when the heater isn't working, it's cold and abrasive outside and the wolf is at the door." Lawrence country is rather beautiful, too, violently so. Kramer and director Ken 1 Russell present it in lush images and the closeness of their collaboration is obvious. "We were both imbued with a sense of love for the project. We wanted a recreation of a great novel. The novel, Law- •ence felt, was a culmination of his ideas. He wrote it from 1913 to 1916. "Slightly more than half the 'ilm is exactly from Lawrence, tot all is from the novel — some of it is from his letters, essays, and jrfays. "I wanted to show you can convey emotion along with action and that ideas and talk and beautiful scenery are not incompatible in films, "My first draft was all dialogue, the second was mostly visual. The end result is a combination of them both." Kramer's next project will be 'Forbidden Colors" by Yukio kfishima, a Japanese author, available now in English trans- "ation. The story, Kramer says, s not unlike "Women in Love" because It- dears "with complicated people who closely interact with one another. Union Pickets Own Leaders MIAMI, FLA.

StudentsTell US* Off idols oi Alienation r% l ByNlckKotz (Of Th« ft«oiit«r's Washlnslan Bureau) WASHINGTON, D.C. - A nine-member delegation from Grinnell College Thursday 'told Secretary of State William Rog- efs that the Nixon administration, by its waf- policies and its words, has dangerously polarized and radicalized a "majority of American college students.. The Grinnell delegation, consisting of students, faculty, .and. administrators, met with Rogers for 75. minutes during a long day in which they also talked with Iowa Senators Jack Miller and Harold Hughes, Iowa Congressmen Fred Schwen- gelf Jphn Kyi and Neal Smith, and White House officials John Price and Daniel P. Moynihan. Credibility Gap Grinnell President Glenn Leggett said the point of the visit authorized by a resolution of the student body — was for "moderate students to explain why they feel student bodies are becoming so polarized from the .general political structure of this country." "There is a strong feeling on the part of faculty andsfii- dents," Leggett said, that, whatever the cause, the credibility, gap between President Nixon and students is so .great as to polarize this generation of college students. "We were trying to communicate the idea that the notion is simply untrue that prob- De$ Mffi'nes Register Pri., May 8. 1970 lems on the campus are brought about by a few maniacal radicals." The factJs that students ar becoming so polarized in view point from the political .in stitutions that differences viewpoints among students i disappearing, Leggett said.
