Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - December 3, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta ATURDA North TV station may close down PRE-SELLING FRIDAY NIGHT 6 to 9 pjn. WE RESERVE THE RIGHT TO LIMIT QUANTITIES CHURCHILL, Man. (CP) -Television Station CHGH, a community-operated broadcasting facility in this Hudson Bay Community of 2,000, may go off the air permanently because subscribers are not paying their bills. Malcolm II. McCullough, chairman of Nanuk Television Inc., says the station, which carries week-old CBC videotaped programs, willl terminate broadcasting Saturday. He said the station has gone off the air before since it began operation in 1965, "but we've only had to shut down for a Ladies' Brushed Nylon GOWN LADIES' CRIMP FLARES -Pull-on pant -Sizes 8 to 20 -Wide selection of colors Reg. 8.99 PAIR Billy Jack movie is big success HOLLYWOOD (AP) - The success of Billy Jack astounded the movie industry. But the willowy blonde who produced it vvasn't'surprised at all. Dolores Taylor's film is an eai-nest account of youth vs. the establishment in a southwestern U.S. town. Except for a few critics, the film drew middling to poor reviews in New York and Los Angeles and died in its first runs. But the story was different in the American heartland: Billy Jack opened in April and is still running in several Midwest cities. "Warner Bros, is still in shock," said Miss Taylor happily. "The company never expected this to happen. "But it happened the way we expected. We insisted on a contract provision of four-week guaranteed playing time. Billy Jack is the kind of a picture that takes time to catch on." "We" means herself and husband Tom Laughlin. Together they are a one-family studio. Both starred in the movie and wrote the script, she produced and he directed. They use their own names as actors, but pseudonyms for the other duties. Why? "Because, as Tom says, it becomes an ego trip if you have your names on everything." month or so each time." He said less than 10 per cent of the station's 500 subscribers have been paying their subscriptions. "People seem to take tele vision for granted until they c&n't have it anymore. Once it's gone, the money begins to appear and this is why we've managed to return to the air in the past." He said the station may have to close permanently this time "because the strain on the budget may be too much." He said a federal government grant the station is expecting "may be used to make sure we don't have any debts when we shut down." Mr. McCullough said the station operated on "a sort of honor system." Subscribers are urged to pay $5 a month for the service but there is no way of knowing for certain how many television sets there are in the community. "We think there are about 500 sets in the community but right now we have 36 paying subscribers." The station sends on a tiny five-watt transmitter located on the shore of Hudson Bay. It usually broadcasts about 11 hours a day, "but this depends on the length of some of the movies" said Mr. McCullough. "We'll really know where the station stands when we get some of these post-dated cheques in." Defeatist attitude hurts Indian National ballet designer dies LONDON (CP) - Kay Ambrose, artistic adviser and head designer for the National Ballet of Canada from 1953 to 1962, died in hospital here Wednesday. Miss Ambrose, born in Surrey, England, had been in a coma for several days and was believed to have died of a brain tumor. She was in her 50s. A former associate said today she was regarded as the "solid rock" of the National Ballet during its formative years. She designed the sets and costumes for about 20 of the ballet's early productions. Before she went to Canada, she was noted here as an illustrator and writer on the ballet and published many books which now are regarded as textbooks. CALGARY (CP) - Indians often talk themselves out of a job because of a defeatist attitude, says Rufus Goodstriker, former band chief on the Blood Indian reservation near Card-stori, Alta. "When young Indians go to get a job they think to themselves, I'm not going to get it because I'm an Indian. "And by the time they get to the head of the line, they've got themselves licked." Mr. Goodstriker, former special RCMP constable on the reservation and once a top rodeo competitor, said at a University of Calgary lecture that Indians were proud and free before the first white settlers came. "Then the white man came, this breed whose destiny was to conquer the world." Indians can't blame their downfall entirely on the missionaries and whisky-peddlers, said Mr. Goodstriker. "It was good to learn the white man's ways, but they didn't suit our ways - our potential." The old Indian ways, he said, can't be replaced by the authoritarian discipline of the white man's school.
