young Beach Boys, were
born to a gentile father and
a Jewish mother. Their
father was Murry Gage
Wilson, who imported
heavy machinery and
wrote songs in his spare
time; their mother was
Audree Neva Korthof, who
played the piano and raised
three sons (the third
Wilson brother, Dennis,
was for many years
drummer for the Beach
Boys. He died in a boating
accident in 1983.)
The Wilson family lived
in Hawthorne, a suburb of
Los Angeles. All the boys
loved music, but Brian was
the most musically ad-
vanced. When he was 8, he
made his debut singing
"The Old Soldier" at a con-
cert his aunt organized.
The song was written by
his cousin, Mike Love.
During the 1950s, Brian
and Carl Wilson joined

with Mike Love to form a
rock group, called the
Surfers and then the
Pendeltons and finally the
Beach Boys. They hired a
singer, Al Jardine, then
wrote a song about surfing
— at the suggestion of
Dennis Wilson, a devoted
surfer.
Hearing the Beach Boys'
first record, appropriately
titled "Surfin'," Capitol
Records immediately
signed the band. Their next
record was another sw-
ingin' surfer single,
"Surfin' Safari," which
reached No. 14 on the
music charts.

From "Surfin' Safari," it
was just wave after wave of
surfer hits. Other Beach
Boy greats include "Fun
Fun Fun," "I Get Around"
and "Surfin' USA." Many
of these masterpieces were
written by Brian Wilson,
who after the release of the
1963 album "Surfer Girl"
became the group's man-
ager. Even with this new
responsibility, he con-
tinued to write music for
the Beach Boys and others.
Amazingly, he came up
with yet more songs using
the word "surf," like the
Jan and Dean hit, "Surf
City."

In 1966, the Beach Boys
released what would be
their biggest hit, "Good
Vibrations," which sold
more than 1 million copies.
In 1988, the group was in-
ducted into the Rock n' Roll
Hall of Fame. ❑

Austrian Rightist
Denies Charges

Rome (JTA) — The unex-
pected strong showing of
Jorg Haider's far right-wing
Freedom Party in the
Vienna municipal elections
last weekend has sent shock
waves beyond Austria's
borders.
It prompted the Italian
newspaper Il Messaggero to
ask Mr. Haider point-blank
if he is an anti-Semite.
"Absolutely not," he
replied in an interview in the
paper.
He denied having said in a
June speech to the provin-
cial Parliament of Carinthia
that the labor policies of the
Third Reich, which sent
Jews to concentration

camps, were on the right
track.

"It is false. that I gave a
positive evaluation of
Nazism," he said. He accus-
ed the Socialists of distorting
his remarks to try to break
his party's coalition with the
conservative but main-
stream People's Party.
Mr. Haider won in Vienna
after a right-wing campaign
based on a familiar mixture
of nationalism and
xenophobia. His party
doubled its 1987 vote to win
23 seats in the 100-member
municipal council, making it
the second strongest party
after the Socialists.
