pat CCCPER ^4 On Location What makes life Italian style so much fun? Pat Cooper. Though he doesn’t look any more Italian than Jimmy Carter, this Borscht Belt comic breaks up audiences with stories of his heritage, home life and the high prices of everything from kids to canelloni. His energetic ad-libs are unpredictable. In a flash he’s a Puerto Rican dancer ... or his own 16-year-old daughter. It’s his rapid-14 fire, easy-going, and unmistakable showmanship that give us a laugh on ourselves. Don’t miss his Friday the 18th premiere on February’s edition of ON LOCATION—HBO’s popular showcase for today’s best comedy talent. Next month: Fang’s favorite, Phyllis Diller. Her electric laugh keeps ON LOCATION right on target with more top-notch entertainment. Feb 18,21,24,26 February Action The ice will be cold, but the shooters will be hot when the Montreal Canadiens face the Los Angeles Kings on February 5. Three of the NHL’s top five point-getters this season—Guy Lafleur and Steve Shutt of Montreal and Marcel Dionne of Los Angeles—will be firing away. Montreal, outscoring its opposition more than 2 to 1, has also received exceptional efforts from Goalie Ken Dryden and penalty killers Jimmy Roberts and Doug Jarvis. That the powerful Canadiens are not invincible was proved by none other than the Kings when the teams met on December 2. Montreal took a quick 2-0 lead, fell behind 3-2 and barely salvaged a tie when Shutt zapped in his 27th goal in 27 games with just 40 seconds left. For the Kings that was their 13th straight nonwinning game, but the tie apparently perked them up and they are now battling for second in the Norris Division behind the Canadiens. No college basketball team has been more of a surprise so far this season than Notre Dame, which will take on Manhattan on February 17 at Madison Square Garden. The Irish, who lost Adrian Dantley to the pros in the hardship draft and two other fine players because of low grades, were not expected to cause much of a stir. But in their first game Goalie Ken Dryden of the Canadiens they startled Maryland 80-79 as Don Williams popped in a jumper with 18 seconds to go in overtime. They then handed UCLA only its fourth home loss in 12 years 66-63 as freshman Rich Branning scored four points in the closing moments. They later toppled Indiana’s NCAA champs 78-65. Dozens of outstanding track and field performers will take part in the AAU championships on February 12 at Madison Square Garden. Also getting a chance to show their stuff will be 3,000 well-groomed canines entered in the 101st Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show on the 14th. Herman Weiskopf
