Presley Piques Pakistani Parents By LEMMY PINNA KARACHI W h e n 700 Pakistani youths recently organized an “Elvis Presley Club,” there was a seismic shock throughout this Moslem country’s society.  One weekly newspaper deplored any publicity on formation of such a club, saying it would encourage the youths of Pakistan to “wholesale western waywardness.” Another editorialized: “To set up this hip- swinging matinee idol as a hero shows up our own failure in capturing the imagination of our youths.”

The club, however, operates on a comparatively low-voltage level. According to its president, J9-year-old Zafar Qureishi, it is part of the Elvis Presley Fan Club girding the globe. Equipped with an inner cabinet that is busily working up a constitution, the club is run on a nonprofit basis. “Our admission fee is 5 rupees ($1), with a monthly subscription of 1 rupee (20 cents),” the president said.

“With the funds we will hold regular Elvis Presley movies, concerts and dances.” In one such sponsored screening of Presley’s “Love Me Tender,” the club raised 250 rupees ($50) which it donated to rehabilitation of the victims of the recent Garibabad fire when 1,000 persons were left homeless. “As you can see,” said the active organizer, “our club is aimed at making teen-agers happy, contented, and well adjusted members of society.”

Pakistani parents view the organization with trepidation. Some claimed the Elvis Presley club here to be a hangout for “teddy boys”, youngsters sporting drain- piper trousers and frowned upon for loitering on street corners. Presley club members quickly deny this. “We don’t take hoodlums and bad eggs,” one said. “In fact, a!l applicants are screened and the club is not open to all.”

According to the mother of a girl who now proudly owns a membership card embossed with the photograph of Elvis Presley, the stigma lies not so much in the club itself as on such western influenced items as rock n’ roll, the twist and drain-pipe trousers. These western-type influences have been militantly curbed, albeit unsuccessfully, within this country. Teddy boys have been hounded off Karachi’s sunbaked pavements by the police; movies on “the twist” have been banned b y Pakistan’s C e n s o r Board.

Karachi’s Presley fans, however, shrug away all such adult repressions by saying this is the “first organized a n d healthy” club open to youths of decent families. “And we mean to keep it that way,” a crew-cut boy draped in tight trousers drawled. “We will sponsor another Elvis Presley film soon,” he added. All members will see ‘Kid Galahad’ for free, and what we collect from outsiders will be donated to a charitable organization.” But the tremor that really shook the staid Moslem society here was caused by such club-sponsored terpsichorean feats as an all- night rock n’ roll contest. For some adults who felt at a “loss-for-words” to describe this new western infiltration on the Moslem society, a new word was recently coined: ‘Presleytiz- ing.”

Former Beatles drummer Pete Best appears on US TV’s I’ve Got A Secret. It only took a handful of questions before the panel guessed his former occupation and when host Gary Moore asked him why he left the group, he said “I thought I’d like to start of group of my own and I thought at that time they weren’t going to go as big as they are now.”

On British TV’s Top of the Pops, the engineer accidentally ran the backing track for an Alan Price record, “Simon Smith and His Amazing Dancing Bear” instead of “Purple Haze.” Jimi Hendrix, without missing a beat, nonchalantly stated, “I don’t know the words to that one, man.”

The photo session took place at Chelsea Manor studios in London with Michael Cooper for the cover of The Beatles Sgt. Pepper album. After the shoot The Beatles resumed work at Abbey Road studios on ‘With a Little Help From My Friends’ adding guitars, bass, tambourine, and backing vocals. The session began at 11:00 pm and ends at 7:30 am.
