"The group was so dish- evelled, upset and frustrated" by a series of inconveniences, he said, he had no choice. In Ottawa to talk to the Can- ada Council which helped ar- range the tour, Mr. Peterson said in an interview the con- tract stipulated first-class transportation within the Soviet Union. But on the first leg of the trip, the group was offered shared accommodation on an overnight train from Leningrad to Tallinn, capital of the western province of Eastonia. Arriving from Tallinn after three concerts, the group waited three hours to be greeted at Moscow airport, Mr. Peterson said. The of- ficial party never arrived. The group lost its interpreter, had difficulty ordering meals and found itself in a fifth-class hotel Mr. Peterson said he felt no bitterness towards his Rus- sian audience Nationalism growing among Canadian art NEW YORK (CP) Canada is fed up with being a branch plant of the United States in the entertainment field, pumping millions of dollars annually into American coffers, Variety re- ports. The trade newspaper of show business headlines its fourth annual Canadian film and entertainment review "Canada talks of Yank arts turnoff. Resent film, disc, magazine takeout." The main story by Toronto correspondent Sid Adilman says support for Canadian na- tionalism in show business is growing, "if not by govern- ment edict then certainly by recent comments from es- tablished native film producers, recording in- dustry sources, TV types and publishers." Most Canadian nation- alists aren't anti-U.S. or anti- British or anti-foreign whatever it Adilman writes "It's just that they feel those who take huge profits out should put something back into develop- ment of Canadian talent." The article quotes Harold Greenberg, Montreal film financier and producer, as saying U.S. distributors are being told "by people like me that they should start thinking of plowing back some of the millions of dollars they take from this country (Canada) or they could face film quotas directed at them." Variety estimates that total gross of U.S. distributors in Canada is in the neighborhood of million annually. In the last few years, major Hollywood studios have made sporadic investments in feature Canadian films. Paramount Pictures earned some favorable publicity in Canada by buying the U.S. dis- tribution rights for the Canadian-pi oduced Appren- ticeship of Cuddy Kravitz. Buddy Kravitz is Canada's most successful English-lan- guage film at home. Its gross in Canada as of Oct. 31 was million. In the U.S., it has grossed nearly million since its premiere in New York in mid-July. Greenberg has six projects involving name stars on his production schedule in the next eight months, Variety says, and is trying to line up distribution deals prior to filming.

The newspaper says Cana- dian singer Anne Murray sign- ed what is described as a mul- ti-million-dollar, four-year contract with Capitol-Emi, not Capitol Records of Canada for which she has recorded during the last five years. Variety quotes her manager, Leonard Rarnbeau, as saying the reason for her action is simple: "The parent company, that's where the money and the power is." The newspaper says Gordon Lightfoot, Canada's second best-selling pop singer- composer, is in the same boat. His five-year million-dollar contract with Warner Bros, expires next spring "and there's no doubt he'll be sign- ed again to a U.S. label and signed by head office." One industry source told Variety's Adilman. "If you're Canadian and you're in the big time of recoiumg or song writing, you just don't sign with a branch- plant Toronto subsidiary." Variety estimates that Canadian recordings represents seven to eight per cent of the total North American market. West Germans unravel two cases of lost love BONN (Reuter) West German police unravelled two cases of love's labors lost Fri- day. In Munich, a 29-year-old fe- male cook masqueraded as a man, proposed marriage to another woman, borrowed about from her to buy a new car, then disappeared, leaving her bride-to-be sitting in the registry waiting room, police said In Saarbruecken. more than 500 men sent money for train fare to what they thought was a nude photo they had been to spend the night with them. Police arrested a 21-year- old male bank clerk for mail- ing the photos and promising a night of love in return for the fare.
