A ISO-man crew spent three months building the 50 struc- tures and cobblestone streets at a cost of It was the biggest set ever built on the Col- umbia ranch. Earlier this year Columbia announced it could sell off its studio and ranch and move in with Warner Bros. This will be a major step in the consolida- tion of movie lots. A principal casualty has been the movie ranch. During the years of full production, every studio had its ranch or backlot acreage for the con- struction of big sets. SELLS TARZAN HAUNTS MGM had not only one but two location areas. One was Lot 3 winch featured evraything from Tarzan's jungle to the mansion of the unsinkable Molly Brown. Now it has been sold for a realty development. Lot 2, adjacent to the MGM studio, now is up for sale. It included the home of the Hardy family and a train station where Van Johnson said farewell to June Ally-son in Second World War films. Twentieth Century-Fox had its j own backlot across Olympic Boulevard from the studio. The property was sold a decade ago for development of Alcoa as Century City. RKO, Warner Bros, and Para- mount disposed of their location ranches long ago. Only Universal retains its big location acreage in the hills to the studio. "The day of the movie loca- tion ranch is says one studio veteran. "You can't shoot j a Paris street in Culver City any more. The public knows it's phoney. Besides, the new gener- ation of film-makers won't work on studio sets. They want to shoot 'where it's at'." at pesky cabinet leaks SOUTHERN ALBERTA CARDSTON Mayfair Theatre CLOSED TODAY AND SATURDAY. FREE SHOWS Monday, December 27th.

You can adopt cats, dogs but not ducks M1SS1SSAUGA, Ont. (CP) You can adopt cats and dogs at the animal shelter in this town outside Toronto, but ask for a duck or a goose and you'll be turned down. The Peel County Humane Society is building a chil- dren's zoo for the off-beat animals it collects. The geese and ducks will go into it, along with the four pigs, two Shetland ponies, the goat and the spider monkey the society has. There's another reason ducks and geese aren't put up for adoption, inspector Bernard Webb said in an in- terview. "This time of year, we're a little suspicious about where they will end up." DIETRICH DENTURE CLINIC ROSS A. HOSACK Certified Dental Mechanic National Store Bldg. Ph. 327-7244 Lethbridge OTTAWA (CP) -Prime Min- ister Trudeau figuratively threw up his hands Thursday about: cabinet leaks. He said in Commons replies j to opposition questions that he does not see how the govern- ment can lighten its security regulations on documents "if people are going to break their oath of secrecy." The exchange dealt with a Globe and Mail report dealing with what it says arc secret cabinet studies of measures to deal with violence, including possible use of the War Mea- sures Act, five months before the act proclaimed in the Quebec crisis in October, 1970. Mr. Trudeau said in reply to Opposition Leader Robert Stan- field that he did not think it was appropriate for Mr. Stanfield to expect him to answer specific questions on the documents. However, he added that the government did some contin- gency planning as a result of disturbed social conditions throughout the world in 1968-69, including unrest on campuses in Europe and North America and city rights in the U.S. FEAR REPETITION Andrew Brewin ronto Greenwood) asked what is going to be done to prevent a repetition of leakage of highly sensitive cabinet documents to the press. Mr. Trudeau said cabinet ministers and officials already take an oath of secrecy. Tons of documents circulated I Theatre goes all year round and there was a question about what could be done about a person who took a decision on his own to disregard his oath of secrecy. Mr. Brewin suggested a Com- mons committee study. Mr. Trudeau rejected the idea, saying that some part of government must be conducted in secret if ministers and offi- cials are to speak to each other frankly. CONSIDERED ARMY AID Later, ui reply to Mr. Stan- field, the prime minister said that during the 1969 police lo the dogs EDMONTON (CP) Cit- adel Theatre went to the dogs last week. Artistic director Sean Mulcahy held auditions for 15 dogs and selected Nipper, a brown-and-vhite mongrel owned by Holly Hardman of Ednwnton, for a role in the forthcoming production Of Mice and Sicn. Nipper had the advantage of experience. He had ap- peared previously in The Miracle Workers and A Midsummer Night's Dream. Good harvest for China HONG KONG (Reuter) China overcame serious natural disasters this year to reap a good harvest for the 10th straight year, the New China news agency said today. Both tlie harvest and the yield of grain in 1971 broke record set last year. Farming, forestry7, animal husbandry, side-line oc- cupations and fisheries all made progress, the agency said. China's good harvests were due to the fad that peasants conscientiously studied works by Marx, Engels, Lenin, Stalin and Communist party Chairman Mao, it said. China suffered from serious draught, flooding, windstorms and insect plagues in 1971, and three times as large an area was affected as in 1970, the agency said. Canada's federal department of external affairs was estab- lished in 1909. strike in Montreal there was a question of assistance by the army. But there had been no discus- sion at that time of use of the War Measures Act. Former Conservative prime minister John Diefenbaker said the Commons had been in- formed in October, 1970, by Mr. Trudeau and Justice Minister John Turner that the War Mea- sures Act had been invoked only because Quebec and Montreal had asked for the act's applica- tion. He said the revelations by col- umnist George Bain in The Globe and Mail showed that what Mr. Trudeau and Mr. Turner had said at the time was the "reverse of the truth." "Yes, it is not a com- mented Mr. Trudeau but said nothing further on the matter. The act was invoked after the kidnappings of British diplomat James Cross and Quebec Labor Minister Pierre Laporte. The latter was murdered the next day by the Front de Liberation du Quebec.
