(CP) Jerry Jlobitaille decided mare than ii year Ego to quit his job at a Sherbrookc laun- dry and turn his country and western band, the Cajun Country Cicnllcmen, into a full-time group. .lorry's licss, a country and western fan himself, gave him his blessing and said the old jnli available if the music did not work out. The offer meant a lol at the time; now it is the farthest thing from Jerry's mind. His band features a female .singer, Jo-Anne More a u 11, who come' on like Tammy Wynelte without the big studio polish. It has engagements ill over Quebec and the audience is growing. The group has already made the trek to Nashville, Ihe mccca of all country and western singers. It cut two al- bums there, one in English, the other in French. Both sold well. A single the group made also did well. It has been a long road for Jerry, a 28-year-old musician who has been playing musical instruments for as long as ho can remember. His dad taught him the rudi- ments of fiddling and guitar picking. Afterwards he learned to play the banjo and steel guitar as a member of a local band which became the Cajun Country Gentlemen. TIIISY'HB BILINGUAL Like most country and wesl- ern musicians, Hie beer and dance halls are the stamping grounds of the group. Its records fill jukeboxes in small cilies and towns. Jerry and Jo-Anne are ex- ceptions for Quebec country musicians because they can sing in English and French. Most work exclusively in French. The success of the Cajun Country Gents is due in large part to their position in the new wave of Quebec country groups. Country music has always wolf so bad VANCOUVER (CP) The big bad wolf of fable and fairy tale is really a rather likable creature w i I h surprisingly human characteristics, says a men who has been sludying the long-toothed beasts for the last six years. Gordon Haber says his studies of the patterns of so- cial relationships among wolf packs in Mount McKinley Na- tional Park in Alaska have s h o w n the much-maligned beasts are in reality a playful, frolicsome lot who delight in wolfing around. "Wolves are the most play- ful, the most socially co-oper- ative of all the social verte- brates." he says. "Through play they mam- lain a close group familiarity, an essential ingredient in bringing down prey together." Haber described a scene he witnessed last October in which a wolf pack roulcd a grizzly bear out of deep sleep to take turns in a game of after bear, bear after wolves. When they tired of the gsmc, they resumed their trek, with the bear following in their footsteps. Eventually, the bear went home. TRACKED BY PLANE Haber did (be major part of his tracking from a light ski- equipped plane. The wolves climb 6.000-foot peaks and range through 650 square miles of lundra every few weeks in the winter. He says every pack lias a highly organized society and a clear-cut hierarchy of domi- nant and submissive mem- bers. The alpha, or head male, delegates routine chores to his second-in-com- mand, saving himself the more crucial tasks of captur- ing prey and mating. When wolves do attack their prey, says Haber, their strat- egy bears a close resem- blance to the classic western- movie sequence. First, they fan out in a line, often on high ground. Then tile second-in-command gives the signal and they go charg- ing down, barking and howl- ing in an attempt to panic their prey, which frequently outweighs a wolf 10-1. But if the cari- bou or healthy and stands its ground, the wolves give up within a matter of minutes. "There is a lot of nonsense about how readily wolves kill says Haber. "Yet it's actually pretty dif- ficult for them to catch any- thing." Almost any animal can out- run them, including sheep and caribou. A record tourists mostly Ber- muda in August, the tourist de- partment said.

Their music was played on a fiddle and its measured cadence was akin to square-dance music. As generations passed, its tempo increased and Ihe lyr- ics evolved and become more loosely interpreted. The dci'elopmenl of Nash- ville produced both pond and had effect on il. The k'a and gfiilar norih ;nd were quickly adopted, bill some of Nashville's crasser aspects also were adopied. The new wave of Quebec country singers has changed all this, blending the best of Nashville and their own tradi- tional music to produce the unique sound of Quebccois country music. Quebec country singers do not really make (he big time because there are just so many places m North Amer- ica w here you can sell French-language record s, especially with the regional- ized style of Quebec. But they are popular in their home ground and sing- ers such as Jerry Kobitaille and Jo-Anne MorcauH. be- raise they arc bilingual, al- ways have Ihe potential lo break into Ihe English-lan- guage market. Meanwhile, they are happy playing the music they love and nurturing a tradition thai is at once universal and all their own. Film seized at Winnipeg WINNIPEG (CP) The Ste- wardesses, a movie about the off duty sexual aclivilics of flight attendants, had another forced landing Tuesday as city police morality officers seized film from the downlown Metropolitan Theatre.

December 8, 1971 THE LETHBRIDGE HERAtD rides fence lone operators WASHINGTON (AP The United States announced Tues- day its decision to channel all further peacemaking efforts in the India-Pakislan war through the United Nations General As- sembly. The decision was announced by siate department Charles W. Bray in underscor- ing U.S. determination to're- main neutral find not become directly involved in the conflict. Bray reviewed what be termed intensive diplomatic ef- forts by the United States through direct talks with the leaders of India and Pakistan to avoid the hostilities by a cease- fire and general withdrawal of forces. Bray said President Nixon had intervened directly with Prime Minister Indira Gandhi and President Yahya Khan of Pakistan. "I don't know how it will have been possible for the United States with only marginal influ- ence lo have done more to head off the situation that now ob- Bray said. The United Slates objective at the United Nations will be lo seek a resolution that contains provisions for a ceasefire and a general withdrawal of the op- jwsing forces, Bray said.

Witie, liquor bolllc rel'mul considered VICTORIA (CP) British Columbia's liquor industry is considering a depot system for refolds on wine and liquor bot- tles, says Conservation Minis- ter Ken Kiernan. The minister was comment- ing on whether B.C. would fol- low Alberta's recently-an- nounced legislation lo make re- fund deposits mandatory on wine and liquor containers as an anli-littcr measure. The minister said it is "pref- erable" that industry police it- self. It would require an amendment lo the B.C. litter act to make refunds manda- tory for nine and liquor con- tamers. Such refunds now are required on soft drink and bee- containers. Mr. Kiernan said he has not decided whether to bring the containers under the act should the industry not set up its own refund system. okay pact TORONTO (CP) Bell Can- j acla telephone operators have I voted ovcnvhclmingly to ratify a new contract agreement with the company that will give top- rated employees a weekly wage by October, 1972.
