Performing Arts Program Aiding Talented Blacks THE JOURNAL MONDAY, JULY 19, 1971 PAGE 3 By CATHY CASTILLO Associated Press Writer • SEATTLE, Wash. (AP) — It may not produce another Ossie Davis or Godfrey Cambridge, but a federally funded performing arts program for young blacks here is turning -out dozens of talented young actors and dancers. Black Arts West, operating this year under a $67,000 grant from the Seattle Model Cities Program, includes a 220- seat theater in which is presented an average of one play every five weeks and a dance program that already has lost one participant to the national roadshow of \Hair.\ The last time program director Doug Barnett went to New York, he collected 30 new play manuscripts and broke his suitcase trying to carry theni ail home.

BAXTER Rensselaer Falls - Ralph Architzel, elder son of Mr. and Mrs. Albert Ar-, chitzel of North Merrick and grandson of Mrs. Ralph Wrisley of Rensselaer Falls, was graduated from the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, Md., and commissioned as an ensign June 9. While attending the aqademy he majored in physics and is now con- tinuing his studies at Bainbridge, Md. Upon completion of his present courses he will be associated with the nuclear power project under Admiral Rickover; stationed at the submarine base at New London, Conn. Ralph's brother, David, is also a student at the U.S. Naval Academy and will enter his third year in the fall term as midshipman second class. David is majoring in mathematics and is a first string goalie for the soccer team. Both Ralph and David were versed in Spanish and attended Craig House in Santiago, Chile, for 18 months beginning in Dec, 1962. While there all their courses were taught in Spanish. Their sisters, Reba and David's twin, Anne, were enrolled in Santiago College a highschool in Chile. Anne is a junior at the State Univer- sity of New York at Albany where she is majoring in Spanish and business. This summer she is working in the office of the Puerto De Santa Maria Hotel where she is also residing. Puerto De Santa Maria is located near the city of Cadiz, Spain. Reba, the elder daughter, is a graduate of State University of New York at Albany with honors in English. While an undergraduate she attended Trinity College of Oxford University in England for one summer, majoring in Medieval English. Following her graduation from college she attended Katherine Gibbs in New York City and is now employed at General Electric at Schenectady in the Press Release Division. All four of the Architzel family were graduates of the Calhoun High School at Merrick. Architzel's work in Chile was with the Alliance for International Development (U.S. A.I.D.) and dealt specifically with the training school for their Chilean Internal Revenue Agents. Architzel is .now business administrator for the Locust Valley Central School District. Mrs. Architzel is a mathematics teacher for the Central High School District at Merrick. Both Mr. and Mrs. Architzel were former residents of Rensselaer Falls, having taught in the high school of which Architzel was the principal, from 1943- 45. They are both members of Lura Chapter 324, OES of Rensselaer Palls. Architzel was district grand lecturer of the First St. Lawrence District and a past master of Fellowship Lodge 749, F & AM CONSOLIDATED REPORT OF CONDITION OF Ogdensburg Trust Co.

Hyman B. Fisher William F. White J. Howard Brown, Directors audiences, Barnett West turns away weekends. \I'm amazed how deteatea a lot oi high school students are— black kids,\ said Lorna Richards, who directs the dance troupe of about 12 performers. \They feel so poorly about themselves and have so little confidence in them- selves they're ready to give up as peo- pie.\ She sees dance and drama classes as one way of giving young people pride in their own ability and teaching them discipline—\being responsible to a theater, a director, an audience.\ Black Arts West has produced original plays plus works by many established black playwrights and several white au- thors. There usually is a 60 per cent white majority in the audience, says Barnett, but everything the theater does is aimed at the black community. Be- cause of its reputation for high quality productions of plays not often seen in a city the size of Seattle, Black Arts West consistently has drawn a white audience. Although he would like to play to 100 per cent black audiences., Barnett is satisfied that Black Arts West is making a name for itself nationally because of its quality. \The militants see white people coming to the theater and they are critical of us because ot it,'\ he said. \That's empty rhetoric. If every person- who ever told me he's been here or he intends to come had really been here, we'd be 90 per cent black each per- formance.\ When Barnett took over as director in 1968, Black Arts West was charged with getting kids off the streets and involved. \It was like beating your head against a wall,\ he said. The program included classes in visual arts, crafts, painting and movie making, but had a small staff. After a survey of what programs were available elsewhere, Barnett decided to con- centrate on dance and drama ang to go out after talented, interested people who could make the program so good it would attract others It worked, he said.

(AP) — New York taxpayers might as well prepare themselves now. They are going to be asked soon to pay even more state taxes. Probably alot more.,And maybe even sooner than they think. The inevitably of more \revenue requests\ — as government officials like to call that sort of thing - became clearer this week when Assembly Democrats challenged the state's fiscal soundness. They claimed that Gov. Rockefeller's administration already is running $600 million in the red, during the still-young fiscal year, and that the prospects are that the situation will grow even worse. Surprisingly, Republican fiscal sources in the legislature agreed that the picture was indeed \serious\, and Rockefeller's budget director conceded that he, too, was concerned. The main problem is that, because of the national economic recession, tax collections are running dismally behind expectations. But there are other big liabilities in the picture, too. Chief of these is the problem of shouldering $300 million in spending committments that were \rolled over\ into the present fiscal year' because of last year's revenue shortage. Also there is a big question mark about $300 million in bond borrowing that Rockefeller is counting on to balance the present budget. If New York voters reject his bond proposal in the November election, the state will really be out on a limb. All of these factors combine to create the very real prospect of a budget deficit in the multimillion-dollar range. Fiscal insiders say only the magnitude of the deficit is in question at this point. One remedy would be ty, cut spending further. But most experts here say the state already is close to bare bone. Another would be to lure massive federal aid from Washington. But that's still questionable, especially in amount. The final resource thus is — you guessed it — the taxpayer. He's hurting now, but Rockefeller may have to conclude that he has no other avenue for spending committments. As a result of present budgetfinancing legislation, New Yorkers are paying increased sales taxes and most business corporations are paying higher levies on their profits. But the 1971 legislature scrapped a variety of other tax increases that Rockefeller recommended — including increases in income, cigarette, liquor and gasoline taxes and higher charges for motor vehicle registrations. In discussing ways of plugging a widening hole in the state's fiscal dike, Rockefeller's fiscal advisers quickly point out that the taxpayers were ex- cused' from those levies this time. The intended inferenge is that the day of reckoning cannot be postponed much longer. Normally, the new tax blow might not be expected to fall until after the 1972 legislature convenes, next January. But the state may need extra sustenance even before then. It should be kepi in mind that the legislature is expected to reconvene in December for a special session on legislative and congressional reap- portionment. If the. state should find itself in deep fiscal trouble at that time, it would be possible for Rockefeller to ask the lawmakers also to consider immediate new taxes—effective, say, on Jan. 1. Responsible people in the Rockefeller administration say they have no such plan in mind at this time..But they don't rule out the prospect, either. Leahy Remains In Poor Condition PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Frank Leahy, who stepped down as Notre Dame football coach in 1953 after leading the Irish to four national titles, remained in critical condition today after undergoing surgery. Dr. David Miller said Leahy, 62, was in \extremely critical\ condition before the operation but \is coming under control nicely now.\ Miller said he was \somewhat optimistic.\ Leahy has a heart condition, and the operation was to remove fatty tissue interfering with the functions of the kid- . neys and liver, the doctor said. Leahy's' son, Fred, said his father became seriously ill Thursday after returning to his home in the Portland suburb of Lake Qsewgo. He is an assis- tant to the president of the Canteen Corp., a company based in Chicago.

(AP) r— A \Turn in .a Pusher\ program has attracted 2,930 calls from tipsters since it began oper- ating less than six months ago. Informers remain anonymous and are paid for tips that lead to conviction of drug pushers. The Greater Tampa Chamber of Commerce and businesses which con^ tributed funds began the TIP bounty system for this t city of 318,000 in February. ..James Cusack, a former FBI agent who developed the idea and is director of the program, says 37 persons have been arrested and three convicted as a result of TIP information. In addition, police says they are watching 262 suspects named by informants. Informants call their tips into a secret office manned by civilians and get from $100 to $500 in cash for information that leads to a conviction. Strict anonymity is enforced. The callers are warned not to give their names and are assigned a code name instead. A total of $1,000 has been paid to four persons. The amounts are set by a TIP committee, which considers the extent of a pusher's activities and the age group he was dealing With. •Once a pusher' is convicted, the reward money awaits another call from the code-named informant. Cash is placed in an envelope, Cusack said in an interview, and \We make arrangements for the delivery. We don't want to know who the informant is. We'll make a drop or leave it at a general delivery or something like that. People are interested in that type of thing-^eode names, secret drops. There's a little 'I Spy'in all of us.\ Sponsoring businesses have con- tributed $7,900 for rewards. Information received, from a tipster goes directly to Tampa police or the Hillsborough County sheriff's depart- ment. \People are great,\ Cusack said. \It's amazing what people will do for a small count of money. Some cops even believe mothers will turn in their kids for the right price.\ Gallagher to Theo. and Eufrosina Howe. $1; Oira Simpson to Ronald and Donald Simpson $1.
