Edgar Bergen dead

LAS VEGAS, Nev. (UPI)-Edgar
Bergen, who parlayed his wooden
dummy Charlie McCarthy into one of
the greatest comic acts in show
business, died in his sleep yesterday of
an apparent heart attack. He was 75
years old.
The flip and cheeky Charlie, who con-
tinuously kidded Bergen about his lips
moving when throwing his voice, was
gone, too, at 64. He would never rip off
another, 'I'll mow 'em down!"
CAESARS PALACE Executive Vice
President Harry Wald said Bergen's
body was discoyered in his suite about 4
p.m., a few hours before a performan-
ce.
Clark County Deputy Coroner Scott
Browar said Bergen died in his sleep of
an apparent heart attack. He estimated
the time of deathks between 3 p.m. and
4 p.m.
Bergen's body was taken to Palm
Mortuary in Las Vegas, but a
spokesman said it would probably be
sent to Southern California for burial.
AFTER MORE than 50 years in the
business, the ventriloquist had announ-
ced Sept. 21 that he and Charlie were

ready to retire-Bergen going to relax
in the sun and warmth of Palm
Springs, Calif., and Charlie to the
Smithsonian Institution.
"What are you retiring from?" the
dummy asked Bergen when the two an-

nounced their retirement. "You haven't
had to work since you met me."
Bergen opened Wednesday for a two-
week engagement at Caesars Palace.
His last performances were to have
been in Cincinnati and Cleveland in
December.

Ail-night festivities rock Union

(Continued from Page 1)
UPC, WHICH is part of the Univer-
sity Activities Center, was aided by the
Michigan Student Assembly and other
campus groups in sponsoring the All-
Nighter. "Basically this is a coalition of
different groups who are interested in
promoting increased student use of the
Union," Lebow said.
Dave Neubuff, a freshman from
South Quad, said he never knew what
the Union was. "I thought it was just a
place for alumni and buying concert
tickets. I never realized there was so
much in here for the students."
Lebow explained, "This is UPC's

kick-off event of the year, and we wan-
ted to make it more than just a party.
Everyone talks about changing and im-
proving the Union. We hope this will
help."

Tisch, Headlee clash tomorrow

(Continued from Page 1)
TISCH, AUTHOR of the property tax-
slashing Proposal J, announced last
week his opposition to Headlee's
Proposal E, which would place a ceiling'
on government spending.
"I consider Monday's debate to be
probably one of the most important
debates I will participate in," because
of the "caliber" of those attending,
Tisch said.
Attorney Irwin Ellman, who
represented the group which
challenged the voucher plan, said he is
not worried that the proposal will
become law.
"IF THE PROPOSAL should pass in
November, I am confident it would be

challenged under federal law," Ellman
said.
Since the court already approved two
tax proposals, both challenged by
Zolton Ferency, the unsuccessful
Democratic gubernatorial candidate,
the justices "might have been hesitant
to disapprove this one," Ellman said.
The three arguments elaborated upon"
by the Ellman group before the court
were:
" The petition circulated to get the
proposal on the ballot was deceptive
because it had a two-inch flyer attached
to it - making the page larger than the
regulation si'e - which was removed,
before the document was filed.

" The heading on the petition was not
a true heading, as it was located on the
side, rather than the top, of the page.
" The paper misquoted a section of
the state constitution that would be
altered by passage of the proposal.
The proposal violates the constitution
because it provides for state funding of
parochial schools.

Bryan Bowers at Ark

(Continued from Page 5)
big breakfast and I go back to lid."
After a few of his own songs, in-
cluding the title cut from his album The
View From Home, Bowers engaged the
audience in a series of sing alongs.
Everyone seemed to know "I'll Fly
Away," and Bowers smiled, strumming
away, as everyone else bellowed the
chorus. The response was equally en-
thusiastic for his final number of the
opening set, "Walking in Jerusalem."
"The autoharp is only magic when
it's in tune,' said Bowers between sets
as he -carefully checked over all five
harps he carries with him on stage.:
"They slip out of tune easily, and, since
I'm a perfectionist about it, I spend
hours a day getting everything just
right. I've got to have one for each key,
just like harmonicas, and that adds to
the job."
WHEN BRYAN slows down his
picking style, it's easy to see how the
fingers work together as they scratch
the strings. The level of difficulty would

be about on par with playing three
finger banjo picking with all five
fingers, without being able to look at the
strings. The second set was as well
paced and performed as the first, with
Bowers talking easily to the crowd, but
never rambling.
All this was a lead in to a song with
the message, "I'd no more love one
kinda woman than drink one kinda
wine." He continued with many songs
familiar to the audience including
"Liza Jane," punctuated with verses
like: "I know a gal who lives on the hill/
She won't do it but her sister will."
Bowers has a keen performing edge
and magnificent taste for pacing, the
content of the musical show, the ac-
companiment to his vocal numbers,
and the manner in which he related to
the audience. An entertainer like this
will hardly ever give a poor show, and
it's incumbent on even the most casual
folk listener to come see the captivating
Bryan Bowers next time he visits the
Ark.
