14 Northwest Arkansas TIMES, Tues., Aug. 13, 1974 FAYETTEVILLI, ARKANSAS Hollywood's Empty Movie Sets Are Used As Tennis Courts By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS (sand whacks the ball in the By BOB THOMAS same precincts where she belt- LOS ANGELES (AP) -- On the stages where Glenn Ford once romanced Eila Hayworlh there is a new game -- tennis. The question of hind of love what to do with Hollywood's eniply movie stages is being answered, temporarily at least, by capitalizing on the tennis boom. At least two studios that once bustled with cowuokes and dancing girls are now welcoming white-shorted tennis enthusiasts. First into the field was the Hollywood Indoor Tennis Club, which rented the back part of the Columbia Studios, vacated when Columbia moved to Warner Brothers. Resident pro and manager is Allen Tong. onetime captain of the University of Southern California tennis team. "We run a 24-hour operation here," said Tong, displaying the two handsome courts that occupied a sound stage. "A lot of our members play at 2 and 3 start giving The courts are often occupied in the early morning hours by music stars seeking to unwind after late recording sessions and actors relaxing after night filming. Why are actors playing tennis instead of rnovie scenes on the stages? Because few features are being made in Hollywood nowadays, young directors preferring to shoot on location. Television filming is also greatly diminished. Tong's club has attracted many show biz personalities, and for same of them, it's a sentimental trip. Barbra Strei- ed "People" in "Funny Girl." Other members are Bill Cosby, Sidney Poitier, Johnny Carson, Gene Kelly and Jim Brown. Some of the club's 500 mem jers own their Then why would tennis club? in the morning. I lessons at 6." own they courts, join a Some can't play in the sun, Tong explained. Others like the privacy and novelty of playing under controlled conditions indoors. Members pay $250 a year and rent courts from $6 to $10 an nour, depending on what time they play. The International Studio Tennis Club is a few blocks away on Cahuenga Avenue. It occupies half of the original Motion Picture Center studio. The other half is used by a storage company. Motion Picture Center originated as an independent studio in the boom days right after World War II and went through metamorphoses as Enterprise, Desilu. Paramount TV and finally Cinema General. The head of the Internationa: Studio Tennis Club is Clarenci Ross, who reports a "very good" response to the member ship drive. "Indoor tennis is new to Calif o r n i a , ' ' remarked Ross have such here, why "People say, 'We wonderful weather play indoors?'" "There are many .reasons: heat, smog, wind, having · to turn off outdoor lights at a cer tain hour. Outdoor tennis clubs average only six hours of play daily on a year-round basis. An indoor court can average 16 hours." HELEN HELP US By HELEN AND SUE BOTTEL 'Hurt And Deserted' May Just Stay Home Dear Rap: My husband and I were both 18 when we married. I had more than the average girl: car, money, 3 o b and parents who cared. They saw trouble ahead with Eddie, but I only saw love. I became pregnant right away, but we never settled down, just traveled all over the U.S. because Eddie wanted to He deserted me in Arizona and I called my folks in Connecticut. They wired me money to come home. A few weeks later, he drove up. A few soft words and off we went again. Same thing happened when I was nine · months along -- him AWOL from the Army, me in labor with no husband and no money. Again, my father rescued me. After five months, Eddie came to claim me and the son he had never seen. I love him deeply, but I am tired of being hurt, let down and deserted just · so he can travel and he thinks ' this is the only way to live. What shoud I do? -- C.A.H. Dear C.: Tell Eddie the Army needs him more than you do. Since he's probably still AWOL, your problem may be solved any day ' now -- by the military police. .'-- Helen ^ Dear C.: Repeat to yourself at leas 50 times a day, "I am tirei of being hurt, let down an deserted." Then'think what thi tind of life would do to a baby :t you go off with Edie again you don't "deserve anothe rescue. -- Sue Rap: If you go out with a boyfrien and he sort of ignores you an jalks to his friends (and you'r lot going steady),- should yo dance if someone else ask -- Disgusted Dis: Of course. -- Helen Dis: DENNIS THE MENACE By Ketcham One Year After Pullout NEW YORK (AP) -- You arely hear much about Viet- am on network news shows icse days.

Another tornado churned through an area north of Ladora, Iowa, Monday evening causing one injury. Other twisters touched down at Davenport, Iowa, and northeast of Moline, 111. Golfball-si/e hail fell at Cambridge in northwestern Illinois, and winds gusting nearly 60 miles per hour struck Dallas, Tex. . Most other sections of the country had fair skies early today. Clouds hung over t h e Carolinas and along the coast of southern California, however, and dense fog covered the Appalachians.

Could you please say a word John Leverence. a research Jellow at the Center, defines ]0pular culture as "all those elements of a society which are not narrowly intellectual or creatively elitist and which are generally distributed through .he mass media. It consists of :he spoken and printed word, sounds, pictures,. objects and artifacts, and therefore embraces all levels of our society. "Popular culture is generally middle class, highly conventional and structured along familiar cultural lines. The Western genre is an example, it always has a hero, a villain, an unmarried sehoolmarm and the themes ol good and evil." The Center opened in 1968 with an aim toward promoting the academic understanding of America's rich and complex cultural heritage"Popular, culture is not a body of knowledge," the 28 year-old Leverence says. "It's a discipline and an Bangle of vision -- a discipline in that in order, for. one to understand popular culture it must be taught and studied precisely as other academic disciplines are; an angle of vision in that since popular culture covers virtually every aspect of our existence it must be studied in the broadest,--most -humanistic, interdisciplinary^ way." · ' ·-· STUDIES POPULAR The study of culture has be- university campus in Green and consists of Bowlin 'norm; library-type facilities with mu seum aspects to it," says Le verence, "though it function fundamentally as a reseafc center.

"Vietnam was so prominenl a the news for what -- 10-12 ears? -- and meant so much r so little to people in the U.S hal I think it warrants going ack to," Snyder said. "We simply want to see if we an give any assessments, any ind of look, or get any kind ol eeling about what America lefi ehind there after fighting so ong a n d ' s o hard for all thi hings we were told we were ver there for."
