TIMES, Wed., June 19, 1974 rAYITTIVILLC, A*MAN»A« Dallas Drama Troupe Has 8 Works DALLAS, Tex. (AP) -- Most drama troupes do one or two new plays a year. Of course, nost drama troupes aren't in Texas. And at the Dallas Theater Center, some kind of record for irofessional grassroots creativ- ty has now been set with a display . of eight works -- every me written by company mem- x?rs .iust to add emphasis to the achievement. "In order to grew a forest," says center director Paul Bak- T. "you have to plant trees. In rder to develop a theater, you lave to nurture and support new plays. Far apart in style and subject a sin quality and future prospect, the scripts attest [here's no monopoly on imagi- naivc stagecraft in New York, Los Angeles, Tendon and similar traditional centers. "The most important thing about it all is tha i is being done," commened one visiting showman. In an intensive two- plavs-a-day schedule, the works that previously ahd extended runs for season subscribers were reprised For an assenv blage from afar o fagents, es- ablished authors and critics. Baker, whose calm mien conceals a powerful influence upon all members of the 15-year-old DTC, likes to talk about "this most important event" as a result of "some strange and mar velous alchemy." Besides heading the center, 3aker is also boss of the drama department at Trinity University in San Antonio. It's an in- xrlocking setup that contributes to the energetic record maintained at ttie elegant Dalas theater designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. By no coincidence, all of the Class Reunion ST. PAUL -- T h e St. Paul Alumni Association will sponsor the class reunion for all years at 12:30 p.m. June 30 at the St. Paul High School lunch room. Those attending are asked to bring a basket lunch, according to Mrs. Lena Mae Martin, secretary-treasurer. Mrs. Martin said a special invitation is issued to teachers and f o r m e r teachers. budding authors on display were tutored in playwriling by Gene McKinney, who has been with Baker 27 years. Because o f t h i s year's impetus, VIcKinney now 1 has about 25 more apprentice offerings to screen for a possible [ollow-up Mew Play Market later. Ironically, the two plays gen erating the greatest visitor interest were written because the man assigned to assembling this exhibit 18 months ago was unhappy about a lack of Texas locales in submitted scripts. So Preston Jones, 37, of Alu- querque, N.M.. decided to do something about it. The results were "Lu Ann Hampton Lavcr- ty Oberlunder," which traces its heroine from girlhood through disenchanted middle years; and "The Last Meeting of the Knights of the White Magnolia." about the break-up of a club slightly right of the Ku Klux Man. Both t a k e place in a small town, with overlapping charac ters. He has now completed a locale trilogy, "The Oldest Liv ing Graduate." The group is to be given unified presentation a! the DTC next year. Most elaborately produced of all were "Jack Ruby. All-Armr- can Boy," by John Logan, 34, of Houston, and Baker; and a rock musical of "A Midsummer Night's Dream," jointly com- joscd by Randolph Tallman, 34. Shreveport. La., and Steven Vlackenroth, 33, Boulder, Colo., who also plays a cigar-smoking Puck. It is already set for subsequent display. The play about Jack Ruby, who gunned down President Kennedy's alleged assassin, is a multimedia experience which locally serves alsa as a kind of exorcism of community conscience. The company's director explains that he had fclt that "as artists we have some day to make a statement." the four other pieces range far from Southwest reality and Elizabethan fantasy to the remote boundaries of the avant- garde. Among them are "Getting to Know the Natives," by Daniel Turner, 26, of Sheybo gan, VVis., who says: "Mostly it's a therapeutic experience, now I'm getting to lalk morn about other people." It concerns an ex-Olympic star who spends his life mostly in a bath- tub with an eccentric wife a;id a weird neighbor couple. "Dear Luger," by Kerry Newcomb. 26. of Arlington, attempts a black Joe Orton comedy about a Hillerish bully who hides in a bunker with his mistress as an aide brings food and news from a cannonading outer world. 'Curious in LA." by Glenn Allen Smith, 39, who hails from California's Imperial Valley. concerns a kooky family rapped by mayhem and green. The final work, "Fuse," is oy Sally Netzcl, 37. from Wittenberg. Wis., exploring science- survival crisis in a strange, ritualistic setting. Several of the plays were extensively rewritten during their runs --'one of the main Baker purposes. About 140 members of the DTC ensemble were involved in multiple assignments for the display -- writers performed. actors directed and specialists on collateral projects designed, acted, wrote or directed. Drama, as well as ranches and oil rigs, is bidding for attention deep in the heart of Texas.

High Good Stock Feeders Hard Hit By Soaring Costs VALf.EY SPRINGS. S.D (AP) -- The last, 10 month have been a nightmare o plummeting prices aiul soarin. costs for Dwayne Bly and them sands of livestock feeders lik him. Bly. 31. a college-educate farmer and livestock feeder, i a partner with his mother in feeder operation in south eastern South Dakota. Since September, he has sec livestock prices dive nearly 4 per cent, while -his costs hav risen dramatically. The rules of the feeder game until a few months ngo, hav been: The feeder buys youn cattle, fattens (hem, then sel them at a profit. Hut Bly says that since Ih government imposed price cei ings on beef last year, the rnlc have evaporated like wisps steam, taking any hope fo profits and stability in the ma kel with them. "There's always been tie pressed times, bat I rton't thin it's ever been this bad." Bl said. "The livestock busines has its ups and downs', i cycles, like in I9G3-G4. But the our costs stayed stable. DOUBLE SQUEEZE "I don't think trie costs ha\ ever doubted like they hav We're in a double squeeze." Bly says his. fuel costs, a. proximately $7,500 last yea are already nearly $14.000 Ih year. He spent $65,000 January and February fi corn, twice what he spent the same period in 1973. Last October yearling stcc cost feeders such as Bly $50 hundredweight. That sam steer, ready for sale Tucsd.i was worth slightly more lha MO a hundredweight. The lo is $150 to ?200 per head. B soils an average of 1,500 stee - each year. ' He said larger feeder ope ations compound the price es. Small profit margins force feeders lo feed greater num bers of cattle to make the pro it worth the effort. "The margin had gotten slim, down lo $10 to $15 a hea So guys built up (heir herds. You eventually built up numbers or quit." said Bly. "And now this hit. The guy wti» has done everything he possibly can lo be more efficient is in the worst shape. The numbers are killing you." d low Choice 300-400 Ibs. $28400-500 Ibs. $26-28.50. Good 0-550 Ibs. $24-28.

(AP) -Due lo an early spring freeze, Johnson County will have only about 50 per cent of its annual peach crop, Dwainc Johnson of Clarksville, chairman of the Johnson County Peach Festival, said Tuesday. However, Johnson said the quality of the f r u i t should be better. He said 40 bushels of the peaches picked during the past week were the "largest and most colorful" to be ^rown in the area. They sold for $12 a bushel. Johnson said he did not have figures to compare the cost with 1973, but he said they "were probably higher." Johnson said the peach festi val, which starts here June 28, probably will be the largest held despite the lesser crop. lie said growers in the are* were changing from th« Alberta peach to the Southland variety. The new variety has laste and appearance like the Alberta, he said, but it holdi up under shipment better. OPEN DAILY 9-10; SUNDAY CLOSED WED., THURS., FBI., SAT. JR.
