TPXAS .TEX AS Wednesday, June 21. tn Patsy Awards Honor Animal Actors By AP Newsfcatures Pick a PATSY - any Patsy — one like Frith or Zorro, Ott or even Pax. What's a Patsy? It's the Performing Animal Top Star of the Year — one animal, like Frith the goose, or Zorro the raccoon, who gave the best performance in a single television performance, television series or a feature motion picture. The Patsy awards have been presented for the past 21 years — to such famous animals as Lassie, of the TV series, Cat, in Laird Asks Congress Not To Halt New U.S. Armament Development "Breakfast at Tiffany's," and Pascal, the raccoon in the movie "Pascal." But while these awards are fun, there's a serious purpose behind them too. That is to honor the trainers and handlers behind those performances — the men and women who not only help their animals "act" but who also must adhere to the standards of the American Humane Association regarding humane animal treatment. The Hollywood arm of the National AHA came into being in 1940. Prior to that time animal handling in film production was subject to no regulations whatsoever. The public and various humane groups complained in vain until 1939, when a film, "Jesse James," was made. In it, a horse was deliberately run off a cliff for the sake of realism and died as a result. The story was big news, and Hollywood started listening to the AHA. According to Harold Melni- ker, director of the Hollywood PICK A PATSY The American Humane Association invites you to vote for the Performing Animal Top Star of the Year, in the 22nd annual Patsy Awards.

For instance, many of the westerns used the "running W," a system of wires used to trip a horse at full gallop for spectacular falls. "When the horse comes to the end of the wire his feet are pulled out from under him. He crashes head over heels, nose- first," Melniker explains. To try and stop the use of the "running W" and other procedures such as excessive yanking of reins, spurring and even deliberately killing animals, the Motion Picture Code adopted the provision that the AHA was to be consulted when animal action was planned and was to be invited to have an inspector on duty during filming. Melniker says the system worked fine for 27 years, but that lately, due to the decline of the major studios there have been more problems. "The industry has changed — become fragmented," he points out. "Many producers feel they have to go after shock appeal to get audiences to leave their living rooms and attend the movies." The director also points out that many films are made outside the United States now, posing additional problems for the AHA. He cites two films, "Valdez Is Coming" and "Chato's Land," which were made in Spain and had instances when horses were tripped and seen hitting the ground nose-first. In the summer of 1970, the AHA started rating films acceptable or unacceptable, with the unacceotable classi- OUR iOOTH ANNIVERSARY YEAR USE YOUR WARDS CHARG-ALL ACCOUNT LONGETTE Long Shag Look Soft and Wavy Reg * 14.95 SPECIAL!

Melniker says he hopes these ratings will help the public to try to bring about reform by not attending films found unacceptable. And, to accentuate the positive, there are the Patsy Awards, an entertaining way of showing appreciation to those producers who do abide by the AHA standards. PIANIST TO ADVISE JAZZ FESTIVAL WASHINGTON (AP) - John Lewis, pianist and musical director of the Modern Jazz Quartet, has been appointed music adviser for the 1972 American College Jazz Festival, scheduled for Kennedy Center. The festival, in its third year, is presented this year by the center and the National Association of Jazz Educators. Nearly 200 colleges have been represented at eight regional festivals held to select the bands to perform at the national festival. Lewis, who has led the Modern Jazz Quartet for 20 years, also is on the faculty of the North Carolina School for the Performing Arts and is musical director for the Monterey Jazz Festival. Vancouver's "Chinatown" is almost a misnomer. Only 7,000 of the Canadian city's 45,000 Chinese live in the 11-block district. WASHINGTON (AP) - Secretary of Defense Melvin R. Laird said Tuesday he would recommend against the Moscow arms agreements if Congress blocks development of new U.S. aramaments. Laird told the Senate Armed Services Committee that if Congress acts first on the defense budget and knocks out the Trident submarine, Bl bomber and other weapons, he would urge the United Stales to proceed with a 12-site antiballistic missile program. The ABM treaty would limit both Russia and the United States to two sites. Laird declared repeatedly in answer to questions that the ABM treaty, the agreement on offensive weapons, and U.S. weapons development "must be considered together." Laird told the Senate Armed Services Committee that the ABM treaty and the interim agreement on offensive weapons "are good for America. "They enhance our security," he said, "they permit us to maintain needed strength. "But by themselves they do not automatically guarantee these national security gains. "Peace cannot be bought cheaply. "The opportunities for peace embodied in the SALT agree- 2 Monuments MARKERS-Monuments. Best material. Lowest prices. Phone Fort 665-5622. Ill S.
