"It would be very foolish
(even if you support the trolley)
to try to put together a study
which is not objective," Mog-
dis added. "There are too many
smart people in this town to try
to put something over on them."

key improvements necessary to
developing downtown and trans-
portation is one of them. "I
think we should take some of1
the money that goes into Dial-

line system," he proposes.
Tax breaks to promote build-'
ing in downtown are also on1
Trowbridge's list of improve-'
ments. He would like to see
more businesses there to draw
people to the area.
"I frequently go downtown,"
he continued, "and the problem
is that I have a damn hard time
finding a place to park." That
sparked his third key improve-
ment: a definite need for more
parking downtown, but he is un-
decided as to whether there will
be more parking lots or more{
structures.

TROWBRIDGE blames a lack
of money for infrequent housing
inspections. "Houses are not in-
spected like they should be," he
sighs. "but it boils down to
bucks." He would like grants
from the federal government to
finance low-income housing.
Trowbridge breaks with other
Republicans in that he'd rather
have broken streets repaired
than new roads constructed. He
is also opposed to the extension
of Eisenhower Parkway.
Trow bridge voted against the
airport expansion, fulfilling his
"the runway stops here" 1975
campaign promise. He is also
proud of the budget surplus of
one million dollars in the last
fiscal year. "The city has gone
from $7.4 million (long-term
debt) in June, 1973, to less than
half that'," he boasts.

Before Woodstock caught the public imagination, there was
Monterey Rock Festival, which made stars out of Jimi
Hendrix and Janis Joplin. Captured in all its joyous in-
tensity, it also displays performances by The Who, Jefferson
Airplane, Otis Redding, Canned Heat, Country Joe and the
Fish, Simon and Garfunkel, The Mamas and the Papas, and
Ravi Shankar.

ROBERT ALTMAN'S 1974
THIEVES LIKE US
A carefully aimed mood piece picturing love and crime of
the halycon Coca-Cola days of the 1930's. The original ver-
sion of this film was the basis of Penn's "Bonnie & Clyde." So
sensuous and lucid, it is as if Faulkner and the young Jean
Renoir had collaborated!" A poorly distributed and unfairly
reviewed film, it died at the box office. But it truly is-a cine-
matic hit. Keith Carradine, Shelley Duvall and most of the
Altman regulars.
