Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 21, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, December 21, 1974 THI LETHBRIDQE HERALD 19 Farmer gives ponies away LEWISTON, N.Y. (AP) If you're considering giving someone a pony for Christ- mas, check with Niagara County farmer Allen Grauer. He's giving them away. "I'll be 78 near Grauer said, "and taking care of 98 ponies is getting harder all the time. "I'm not trying to play Santa Claus. If I get rid of a few of them I will be money ahead. And I don't want to see my ponies end up in a can." Grauer said 25 ponies will be given away and there will be a nominal charge for the others. He said area dealers, who used to pay to a pony, are currently offering only The farmer, who's been raising ponies since 1932, recalled times when they would bring to apiece, but he said parents now prefer to buy horses, and children prefer to have motor bikes. A firm offered to take the ponies off his hands, but "these people are picking them up for slaughter for dog meat" Granted wish WINDSOR, Ont. (CP) All 1 want for Christmas is a warm jail cell?

Time (Deadline for Picture TtfMng is December 23rd) recent hearing of the Cana- dian Radio-Television Com- mission, but not grateful enough to accept a hefty in- crease in his monthly bill. The Brampton, Ont, man, one of more than 200 persons filing protests against an ap- plication by the Toronto-based Rogers Group to increase its monthly charge to from 50, was not mollified by the company's undertaking to provide him with 24 channels to watch instead of the pre- sent 12. His problem, he told the CRTC in a lengthy written submission, was a lingering fear that he might have to spend his evenings staring at a blank screen. It all began in December, 1971, said Mr. Krane, a self- confessed TV freak, when Ro- gers cut off service to his apartment After several inquiries, he learned that the previous ten- ants had moved out without notifying the company. Since their payments had stopped, Rogers had pulled the switch, even though Mr. Krane had been paying his bills faithfully for months. The matter was straight- ened out and service restored. But six months later Mr. Krane's screen blacked out again This time he was told Ro- gers had been called by a woman who said she was mov- ing into the apartment and didn't want cable. The com- pany obligingly stopped the service. Unfortunately, the woman had given the wrong apartment number. Once again the matter was resolved. Then, in October, the company stopped making its monthly withdrawals from Mr. Krane's bank ac- count. He spotted the omis- sion in December, called Ro- gers and was told he was no longer on their list of clients, although he was still getting the service. A hastily-mailed cheque for three months' back payments averted disaster. In May, 1973, Mr. Krane moved to a penthouse in the same building and was charg- ed a service fee for reconnecting his set, although he did the job himself. All went well until Christ- mas Eve, when the set black- ed out again. All Rogers could tell him was that the ser- viceman was acting on in- structions from the office computer. The set stayed dark until Dec. 27. Last spring, Mr. Krane came home from work to find the set out of service again. A serviceman, thinking the apartment was vacant, had borrowed the line to feed an- other apartment. Twice more this year the of- fice computer tried to cut off Mr. Krane's service but he was able to square himself with the company just in time. An apologetic Rogers spokesman told the CRTC Mr. Krane's story was trur. Entertainment news in brief NEW YORK (AP) Former Beatle George Harrison said Friday he will donate the proceeds of two sold-out concerts here to UNICEF. The gift should amount to he said at a news conference, adding that his donation "is just a drop in the ocean." The concerts today in Madison Square Garden are the last two on his North American tour. DIVORCE GRANTED LITCHFIELD, Conn. (AP) Film director Mike Nichols and his wife, the former Patricia Margot, have divorc- ed after being separated for about a decade. The divorce, which Nichols sought on grounds of irretrievable breakdown of the marriage, was granted yesterday in Superior Court. Both Mrs. Nichols, who resides in California, and the award winning movie and stage director attended the proceedings. The two had been separated shortly after the birth of their child, who now is 10, said Nichols' lawyer. MUSIC RIGHTS NEW YORK (AP) Mac- millan has obtained exclusive rights to the publication and performance of all Soviet music in the Western Hemisphere. The agreement was signed here earlier this week by Boris Pankin, chief of the Soviet Copyright Agency, and Raymond Hagel, chairman of Macmillan. The agreement gives Mac- millan exclusive rights "for at least 10 years" for the ex- isting and future catalogue of Soviet music. It grants publishing rights as well as rights to licence Soviet music for records, television, radio, stage, concert halls, publications and motion pic- tures.

A man who loves the bottle more than her. A man who is blind to his own sickness. A man who, if not cured soon, could die. His legacy: a broken home. And broken hearts. But the sad urgency of this disease is its subtlety. Fact is, alcoholism is hard to detect. Often it disguises itself behind the phrase "problem But it is still just as ugly. And deadly. It strikes down women and children. Loving wives become alcoholics in the home. And the chil- dren suffer too. The sad truth is, many of our young people in high school today are already its victims. Alcoholics. Something must be done. Just ask a little girl who's waiting for her father to come home. If you're as concerned as we are, then watch "Drink, Drank, a one hour special hosted by Carol Bur- nett whose parents died at age 46. Cause: Alcoholism. "Drink, Drank, Drunk" is aimed at those people who are relatives, friends and co-work- ers of the alcoholic. It will help them identify the prob- lem, begin to deaf with it, and finally, direct them to groups and agencies that can most help the alcoholic and his family cope with the problem. This is one way 3M is helping Canadians to help themselves. The program: "Drink, Drank, Drunk" The time: December 22nd at 10 p.m. The place: CBC Television Network. Drink, dare! Burnett ;
