PfeftC-10 WE NEWS, Frederick, Maryland fc IfVt Recreation Facility Dedicated To Watkins A NEW WARRIOR-- Richard Harris receives warrior status from Manu Tupou after undergoing physical torture in "A Man Called Horse." V Man Named Horse 1 Has Cinema Opening Tonight cfA much-heralded film with whioh a local resident has been ckisely associated in Hollywood opens tonight at the Holiday Cinema in Freder- idfc. The following article on "£ Man Called Horse" is b Eddie Kessler, just returned from Hollywood. *· Regardless of what the critics thirtk of Richard Harris' per- forntance in Cinema Center Films' "A Man Called Horse," he's| already received an award more valuable than an Oscar from the potentially fiercest critics.* of all: his Indian co-stars. Harris is cast in the motion picture as Lord John Morgan, an English lord, who has turned away from the aristocratic society of 1825, who is captured by Sioux Indians during a hunting expedition in the American West and Jens laved as a beast of burdens Made to prove his status as a man in their alien culture, the ^Englishman wins Sioux warrior; status and finally becomes a chief. , A Contingent of real Sioux from the South Dakota's Rosebud Reservation were recruited to play their ancestors in "A Man Called Horse." After the motion picture was completed, the Indians conferred upon Harris the status of an honorary member of the Sioux tribe, a rare and distinctive hon- of conferred on very few. "We observed Mr. Harris for more than three months'while this picture was being made," noted Richard Fools Bull, the wizened reservation medicine man of the orthodox Yuwepi cult. "By tradition, an Indian name must refer to some characteristic or experience of the person who bears it." The name finally chosen for Harris was Onetak Wakan, which translates to Free Spirit from the Sioux. "Harris is like the wind," the tribe council declared. "He can be bold and gentle, and yet he is his own person, independent as the wind itself." Harris was made a blood brother of the Sioux in a ceremony that included giving him a blanket, singing him an honor song, and smoking a sacred pipe. The blanket now occupies a place of honor in Harris' London apartment "White men used to get scalped by the Indians," Harris said good-naturedly after the ceremony. 'Tm glad times have changed!" Festivals Banned? HARRBBURG, Pa. (AP)- A rural state representative introduced a bill in the Pennsylvania General Assembly Tuesday designed to prevent staging of massive rock festivals like Woodstock. The legislation was introduced by Rep. Kenneth B. Lee, a Republican, whose district includes scenic, open counties in northwestern Pennsylvania. The lawmaker said he introduced the measure because a New York firm had planned to hold such an event in Susquehanna County, which he represents. From The Montgomery Bureau LARGO, Md. - A new and modern recreation facility near here, dedicated to Robert M. "Bunt" Watkins, a Mt Airy native, will be officially dedicated June 26 by Maryland Governor Marvin Mantel. '·"- The park, called one of the Washington area's finest, has been developed by the Maryland- National Capital Park and Planning Commission. Following the dedication ceremonies, the Governor will drive a "golden spike" to mark completion of the Largo-Lottsford Line, a miniature railroad that winds for a half mile through the park's heavily timbered landscape. Watkins, In whose honor the park is named, was a member of the Park and Planning Commission for ISyearsandhadbeen its chairman for three years before his death in 1954. His dynamic leadership is credited with the initiation of programs that have brought the bi- county (Montgomery and Prince George's Counties) area one of the nation's finest park and recreation systems. Watkins is also recognized as a leader in the planning that Students Run Drug Program PHOENIX, Ariz. (AP) -More man 2,000 Phoenix high school pupils have been going back to their elementary schools this year to tell fifth through eighth graders why teen-agers shouldn't use drugs. The program is called Dope Stop and it's run by a 22-year- old former drug user named Norman Hovda. It started last fall when officials of the Phoenix Community Organization for Drug Abuse Control became concerned with increased use of drugs by teenagers. Then along came Hovda, fresh from a bad trip on the halluci- gen LSD which climaxed four years of using drugs including marijuana. He joined John French, the idea's originator, on loan for a year from a computer research company. "School administrators were the biggest problem in setting up the program," French said, "Some in the grade schools were afraid to , start something they thought the parents may not like." But Hovda Went to the high schools, working through guidance counselors to recruitpupils who wanted to learn aboul drugs and go back to their elementary schools to tell the fifth through eighth graders about the harm that drugs could do. Hovda conducts monthly training sessions at 33 high schools with about 2,500 teen counselors. The emphasis is on "doing your own thing." The teen volunteers are asked: "Just why are you involved? Why don't you use drugs? Just what are you turned onto in this life?" When they have thought out those questions and answered them honestly, Hovda feels they are ready to go into the elementary school class- rooms once a month with a message. The volunteers are taught about the things young people experiment with and the drugs police say they will inevitably be tempted to try. "The students* return to the same elementary class month after month saddles him with a responsibility for that class," French says." He knows he either will succeed or fail. He feels he's really got a purpose. "We haven't lost any teen counselors who've got off on drugs because of boredom." Their involvement has led to reflection among the volunteers on why young people turn to drugs. "Society presents problems, so people turn to dope. We must solve the problem, but we know we cant do it, so we educate." The program has not been universally praised. Mrs. Nixon Greets Visitors WASHINGTON (AP) - Mrs. Richard M Nixon made a surprise appearance to greet about 45 elderly patients from Foxleigh Nursing Home in Garrison, Md., when they came for a special White House tour. They had written for permission for the special visit and arrived by bus Monday from the home in Baltimore County. Some were too feeble to leave the bus and join in the tour itself and Mrs. Nixon went aboard to say hello after greeting the other group inside the White House. The event was not publicized by Mrs. Nixon's White House staff and came to light Tuesday. Mrs. Nixon explains that she likes to drop in unannounced in this way and does many such things that are not reported. FROM H.L.

Location Of Watkins State Park French Concept Viewed As Reducing Death Rate PARK (AP) - The French government is planning to bring the hospital to the accident A young French architect has designed a self-contained mobile hospital unit, with emergency operating equipment, which can be carried by helicopter to the scene of a major accident The government is proposing mass production of the units and to put them along major highways. The Health Ministry believes the death rate from accidents can be reduced this way. A type of streamlined but stationary hospital unit designed by the architect 22-year-old Nicholas Le Maresquier, is being introduced as an experimental annex to a suburban hospital. The rooms are built of prefabricated plastic. Le Maresquier conceived the idea of brightening hospital environment during eight months he was laid up following a road accident · "My object was to discard the usual cold, clinical geometry for a more psychological approach," he said." A hospital room should cheer or relax, invigorate or calm the patient according to his condition. This can be achieved with adjust ments of the plastic interior. "Sliding panels on the windows shut out or let in the light Wall-to-wall carpeting in washable, hygienic plastic materials, blends with the walls. The rooms contain one, two or three beds, and plastic-covered linen curtains can be drawn to separate each bed. Each room has its own bad or shower room. Rooms intended for maternity departments are in fresh, happy colors.** To maintain the cheerful theme, fashion designer Pierre Cardin designed uniforms in pink, yellow and green as well as white. The colors would be in pale shades, and the uniforms basically black-buttoned tunics in both midi and maxilengths. When Yellowstone National Park opened in 1872, trains and stagecoaches brought only the most intrepid lovers of nature, visiting the park meant open- fire cooking, sleeping in tents or under the stars, and plenty of 19th-century "roughing it."
