But, despite the chilly weath-
er, there was no shortage of
shoppers at the University Ar-
tists and Craftsmen Guild Fall
Art Festival last Saturday. The s
early morning rush at the
Farmers' M a r k e t migrated
across the street to the grounds
of the Community High School to
take a look at wares other than
pumpkins and celery stalks.
The 73 exhibits offered a di-
verse collection of arts and
crafts - everything from ma-
crame wall hangings to delicate
wire sculptures hung in th,e
makeshift booths occpuied by
the artists themselves.
Long glass cases held quan-
tities of ;silver jewerly. Original,
in d e s i g n and intricately
wrought, the jewelry available
was good stuff at any rate.
IF YOU were in need of a
pipe, you had an interesting
choice of material - they were
made from the horns of Rocky
Mountain elk or deel (environ-
mentalists would disapprove).
For a slightly higher cost, you
could have an inlaid wooden
handle as well.
Wooden objects were perhaps
the most versatile and abundant
at the fair. Hand crafted bowls
sold for $45 to $5. Imported

fashion to make striking cheese

One things there was plenty
of was pottery. Countless bowls,
planters, vases, goblets, ash-
trays and anything else you
could think of lined myriad
shelves in the booths.

Jackson Browne's long-awaited new album, The
Pretender, will be released in about a month. He
began work on it following a personal tragedy-
the suicide-death of his wife Phyllis last March,
Although he's beginning, once again, to make
personal appearances, his only show all summer
was the Eagles-Linda Ronstadt-Jackson Browne-
Dan Fogelberg benefit for Jerry Brown. Good to
see him back in action.
Peter Frampton was guest of Steven Ford at the
White House in September. The President, com-
menting on the guitarist's amazing success, said:
"I'd like to be number one for 14 weeks in the
Gallup Poll." Frampton's presently recording a
new album, to be released this January. Inci-
dentally, his live version of the blockbuster hit
"Baby, I Love Your Ways" was originally a flop
as a studio-recorded single . . . ahh, for the
cheers of a crowd.
ZZ Top's Worldwide Texas Tour 1976, although
grossing over 20 million dollars, reminded one
of Noah's Ark. Appearing in the show was a long-

and a tarrantula not necessarily in that order).
Four animal handlers toured with the group, while
the promoters supplied a veterinarian. Besides
animals, ZZ carried a 35-ton stage in the shape
of the state of Texas. It took 100 grounds crew
members and 85 stagehands to set up the eight
semi truckloads of equipment. Behind the stage
was a 3-D panorma of Texas, handpainted by 16
artists in an aircraft hanger in Waco, Texas. It
was lit by 96,000 watts of power, with 260 speak-
ers providing the sound. All for three little-ole
boys from Texas... .
After an 18-month wait, Stevie Wonder's new
album, Songs in the Key of Life, was a new entry
on the Billboard charts-as the number one album
in the nation the first week it was released. .. .
