Haley had previously written several articles for the magazine. Digest editors agreed to support the project, and be gan to pay Haley a monthly stipend plus travel expenses so that he ccould continue Ills research. He delivered the first manuscripts some eight years later,, and The Digest published these in its May and June ty74 issues. The first condensation was preceded by a six page article by Haley, "My Search For Roots," in which the writer described the impetus for his work and discussed some of his research. That work is to be the basis for his next book. Haley notes that, far from taking 1 2 years of his life, the book has added years "and brought me imcomparable re wards." For example, he says that in Los Angeles, a pregnant black woman asketf him to autograph two copies of the book. "One is for me," she said, "the other is for him" - and with that she patted her belly. Haley belives that his book has helped to give blacks, parti-' pularly young blacks, an image model. "Roots is becoming a springboard to striving for millions of people," he writes. "When you see that a goal is attainable, hopefully you are prompted to pay the dues, do the work, and thus pursue the long hard apprenticeship that is the handmaiden of achieve ment." "When The Reder's Di gest published the first con densation of Alex Haley's Roots, we said that it was an epic work destined to become a classic of American litera-, ture,," said Digest Editor - in Chief Edward T. Thompson. "That was an understatement. ' More than one million hard cover copies have already been sold; Roots will take, its place among the greatest best sellers of all times. Its impact on television was historic: The ABC dramatization drew 130 million viewers, and the final installment, with 80 million Americans watching, became the highest-rated show ever on TV." lor labor-management rela tions.

Monday, March 28: On Channel 28, WRDU-TV will carry the NBC - TV Color cast "ALI THE FIGHTER" 10-11 p.m. The professional comeback of current World' Heavyweight Boxing Champion Muhammad Ali is documented in a film about Ali's preparation for his first challenge to win then - defending champ Joe Frazier's crown at New York's Madison Square Garden several years ago. The frenzied activity by the scores of people directly in volved in the preparations for the heavyweight title fight between then-dethroned Muhammad Ali and the brooding champ Joe Frazier should be of more than passing interest to fight fans in the Triangle area. During the several weeks of training prior to the 15 round bout, Ali is in classic style after three years of retirement, cle verly promoting himself and taunting his opponent. With a major challenge before him, Frazier is intensely subdued and sober-faced. There is a marked contrast when the fight itself takes place and Frazier stalks a sloppy and apparently unenthusiastic Ali. When the lackluster fight is over, Frazier has successfully defended his title in a controversial decision victory. "AH the Fighter" also features comments of actor Burt Lancaster, a fight fan, and retired boxer Archie Moore, and a montage of film clips of previous Ali victories over Sonny Liston, George Foreman and Frazier. A William Graves Production, "Ali The Fighter'' is a 1975 release from Cinema Shares International Distribution Corp.
