The Salt Lftk« Tribune, Tuecday, February 20, 1962 Fiery Beauty Pleased Audience Applauds Ballet By Melba M. Ferguson Tribune Staff Writer The wonderful Ballet Espanol Ximenez-Vargas made a second Salt Lake City appearance Monday evening, presenting the fiery beauty of their artistry to a delighted, although small, audi- Dr. Nicolas Gon/alez tie Mcn- doza . . . Warns about Cuba. Refugee Sees U.S. Peril From Cuba Americans were warned Monday evening against "daydreaming" themselves into danger. DR. NICOLAS Gonzalez de Mendoza, former Cuban lawyer who fled the Castro regime, who spoke on "Cuba- Uncle Sam's Headache" at a dinner meeting of the Bonne- vSlle Knife and Fork Club Monday at 7:30 p.m. in Hotel Utah, told his listeners that "Cuba is the keystone to the Commu- •nist blueprint for the taking over of America—the wedge and the jumping board." THE COMMUNIZATION of Cuba, he said, has as an ultimate goal "the taking over of the United States," he said. "You are the only country in the world that stands in the way of world conquest," he said. "You are the only country in the world that, if they take you over by peaceful deceit, will solve all their world problems." WITH A "CAPTIVE American industry and culture and a slave American labor force," he said, "you would produce everything for them that they say they are going to catch up with you in their 20-year plans." This, he explained, is why Cuba is the keystone, and why Americans must "stop daydreaming, thinking that you can negotiate with the Communists, wishfully thinking that the Cubans can get .rid of Fidel all by themselves." "AND STOP thinking," he added, "that you have the privilege of being the nation that can redeem the world." He warned that it is not Castro, but the Communist regime that has been installed in Cuba that is. "the springboard from which to take over America peacefully." THE SPEAKER SAID Latin American resentments against the U.S. are "not nearly as great as you have been brainwashed to believe." Communism, he pointed out. has been "infiltrating America to give a distorted picture of Latin America, and then has been feeding the discontented and the ignorant in Latin America with cliche state mcnts to fan the flames of antagonism." MR. MEXDOZA, who now lives in St. Louis. Mo., is a grandson of Antonio Gonzalez de Mendoza. the first chief justice of Cuba. ence in Granite High School auditorium, under auspices of the Granite Arts Assn. Those who had seen the previous performance in the fall of 1960 in Kingsbury Hall knesv their evening was complete when they saw that "Sin Quererlo nl Buscarlo, Petenera, Petenera," again was on their program. In Two* 1 Scenes This, a ballet in two scenes, Is the story of a beautiful and seduciive woman who is killed by her husband accidentally when she steps between him and her lover. Somehow, it is possible to feel the audience sit on the edges of their seats without moving as the tale of love and faithlessness is danced by the ballet's stars, Maria Alba, Roberto Ximenez and Manolo Vargas. Miss Alba is able in the dance to fairly fill the stage with frustration, anger, !ove, lust and despair. Effective Use An effective use of props — a multi • colored serape, carried by Roberto Ximenez, as the husband, and a black, shawl, taken from the shol- ders of Miss Alba by Mr. Vargas, as the Gypsy lover, help to identify the men in a fight scene, which, L-ven though it is danced, somehow seems real. The dramatic climax, when Miss Alba receives the fatal knife and sinks slowly into her husband's arms found the audience in hushed awe for several moments before they could break the spell to applaud. Better Than Bluck This was the second time many Salt Lakers had seen this dance, and many had only one criticism. When it was presented at Kingsbury, they used a red s h a w 1, which, somehow, was better than the black. Costumes of the girls, Lola Soler, Sara de Luis, Dini Roman and Juliana, were bright, fresh swirls of ruffled skirts, under which their legs flashed in the intricate and stacatte steps of of the bolero and flamenco. Delight to Watch The men, Ramon de los Reyes, Roberto Cartegena, Alonso Cano and Jose Calderon were a delight to watch. Moving with the proud arrogance 'and panther-like grace of the male Spanish dancer, they proved themselves masters of the intricacies of heels," castanets" and snapping fingers which pause, then burst into sound, then pause, to give Spanish rhythms their sense of urgency—of something about to happen. But, of course, highlights of the evening were the solo, "Danza Del Chivato," by Mr. Vargas, and a solo by the guitarist, Jose Canero. New Dances Among new dances on this program were some lively folk dances from the north of Spain, which featured Mr. Ximenez and Miss Alba. The presentation, which gave much of the fiery, tem- pestous Spanish dancing, also included the gaeity, charm and sweetness—and even the comedy — which also is in the traditional Spanish dance but is not so widely known here. Burt Lancaster, left, in Nazi minister of justice role of former is shown with Robert Mayer and Martin Brandt during trial in film, *Miid|?nent at Nuremberg." Film Themes War Trials The Nuremberg postwar trials, which helped establish the legal precedent for the recent Elchmann trial in Israel, were recreated in Hollywood for Stanley Kramer's production of "Judgment at Nuremberg," due to play soon in Salt Lake City. However, unlike Eich- mann'fi bullet-proof glass en^closure, defendants at the Nuremberg trials sat in plain wooden docks. The charges were the same however: crimes against humanity. Starring in the United Artists release are Burt Lancaster, Spencer Tracy, Richard Widmark, Marlene Dietrich, Maximilian Schell, Judy Garland and Montgomery Clift. Life • Long Actor Dies at 71 in N.Y. MINEOLA, N.Y., Feb. 19 (UPI) — Actor James Barton, 71, life-long entertainer best remembered for his portrayal of Jeeter Lester in the Broadway production ol "Tobacco Road," died Monday in Nassau Hospital after a heart attack. Barton, who had one of the longest careers in the history of American entertainment, made his stage debut in 1892 at age 1 in the arms of his parents. An accomplished soft-shoe dancer, he was successful in vaudeville and repertory stage productions, Broadway .plays, musical revues and comedies and more recently films and television. His-:first-; speaking i-ole came in 1894 and. his last Broadway appearance was as the star of "Paint.Your Wagon" in which he sang the plaintive "I Still See Elisa." Fisher Takes Recovered Liz Home From Rome Hospital By Associated Press ROME, Feb. 19 — Singer Eddie Fisher Monday took wife Elizabeth Taylor home from a hospital, where she had been under treatment for food poisoning since Saturday night. At about the same time, a public relations firm retained by Richard Burton, who plays Mark Antony to Miss Taylor's Cleopatra in 20th Century - Fox's multimillion- dollar film now being shot here, issued a written statement denying "uncontrolled rumors" of a romance between Burton and Elizabeth. Fainted Saturday That rumor has been floating around Rome's Cinecltta movie colony. So has a wholly unconfirmed report of family trouble between Miss Taylor and Fisher. Burton said later Monday's statement was issued without his knowledge. Doctors at Salvator Mundi Hospital said the 29-year-old beauty had recovered from the attack of food poisoning which caused her to- faint Saturday night at her villa outside Rome. Fisher Flies In Officials of 20th Century- Fox said they expected her back on the set late this week or early next. She has finished her scenes with Burton. Fisher flew back to Rome Sunday from Lisbon, where he had gone for appearances' on Portuguese television. He talked to his wife by phone but did riot see her at the hospital until six hours later. Doctors said they advised him to let her rest through the afternoon. aLBMRMDBOTEOMS HORIANGE ARTHUR QtXNGL LAUGHS! LAFFS! LAUGHS! BOB liJdii-e 4OPE BALL- ».

Guy Green, who directed "The Marks," Miss Hopper and Producer Jerry Bresler decided to give her this break after reviewing her record. She was Juliet to Peter Ustinov's Romanoff on Broadway, and on screen in "From the Terrace." Steve Cochran, from Mexico where he's doing "Forsaken Garden" with Merle Oberon, says his next venture will be putting Robinson J e f f e r s' epic poem "Mara" on the screen. Jeffers' son, Donnan, is. writing the script, which will be shot in northern California, with Steve playing the rancher. It's for his own company. Rock" Hudson, home from a cruise in Mexican waters, is conferring with Director Delbcrt Mann about "A Gathering of Eagles," which will tell a dramatic story of the strategic ah 1 command. V.g Systems The fellows visited SAC headquarters in Omaha as guests of Gen. Thomas S. Power, and Rock's still agog over the giant intercom which permits the general to pick up a telephone and talk to any part of the world. They also went to Rapid City, S.D., for an inspection in 10 below zero weather, and watched planes taking off at night into 50 mile-an- hour winds.' "Most dramatic thing.I've ever watched," says Rock. He's catching up on all the films so he can cast his Oscar ballot. Ills Reject One of the first he'll catch is "Walk on the Wild Sid**" which he turned down. Morton Da Costa arrived here this week to start looking at actors for his next picture, "Not on Your Life," •which will be made at Warners. I guess Max Schell and Nancy Kwan like to fight. A New Ring After the battle royal they had here, Max took off for Rome to see his picture, "The Reluctant Saint," then joined Nancy in London where she's co-starring with Pat Boone. . • And she's wearing a new jade' ring (a gift from Schell), and preparing for the next round, I presume. Jerry Lewis unveiled his new restaurant on Sunset Strip, and for once, the strip looked like Fifth Avenue. It's done in exquisite taste and permits you to see the lights of the city from three levels. Jerry and Patti were delightful hosts, and the food and wine were delicious.
