Canada's Largest Tax Service Wild Over 6000 Offices in Herffi America 815 3rd AVE. SO. 314 13th ST. NO. LONDON (CP) - Singer Anne Murray may be a household name in Canada, but when it comes to breaking into the British and European pop music market, she has to stand in line with hordes of talented artists looking for openings. However, it looks as though her number had come up. Anne flew home to Toronto yesterday after three weeks in London. In an attempt to win the kind of popularity she enjoys in Canada, the singer recorded a series of television and radio shows performing songs which, she hopes, will appeal to a wide audience in Britain. During the visit, she attended a music festival in Cannes, southern France, where more than 5,000 representatives of the world's pop music business gathered to listen to new talent. "It was like a slave market," Anne recalled in an interview yesterday. 'I was the new talent from Canada and given three songs to prove myself. Still, people-buzzed about me, I think.' APPEARS AT CLUB Among her appearances in London, 27-year-old Anne played at the West Ends Talk of The Town night-spot, a milestone in the careers of most up-and-coming artists on the British pop music circuit. "I reached a peak in Canada 18 months ago," Anne, a native of Springhill, N.S., said. "England provides a new challenge for me. I want to be able to tour here to full houses and get my records high into the charts.' This, her third visit to London, was in preparation for a tour she is scheduled to make in April as a warm-up act for country singer Glen Campbell. "If I get the right reaction from audiences, then I'll take the plunge and do my own tour later in the year," she said. Unlike many of her contemporaries, Anne Murray takes everything in the pop business with a pinch of salt. To keep the pot boiling until she returns, Anne has released a sinde, Danny's Song, in Britain. While she has few asnirations of its chart success, she hopes the record and her latest album, Annie, will add to her growing popularity here. While British disc jockeys are already giving her songs plenty of air play, there still are a few barriers she has to break through to feel at home here. On one of her television ap-1 pearances,. Top of The Pops, disc jockey Tony Blackburn announced: "Welcome Anne Murray, the girl who shot to fame with a song called Snowman." The song was, in fact, Snowbird. "Just one of those things," Anne said. "They'll learn before long." an on ANNE MURRAY . . . stands in line Actors protest foreign control SYDNEY, Australia (Reuter) - Actors dressed as emus and koala bears, protestinog foreign domination of Australia's film industry, greeted Jack Valenti, president of the Motion Picture Association of America, when he arrived here. About 100 show-business people, some of them wearing gangster-style suits and carrying violin cases, demonstrated outside Valenti's hotel. Valenti will pay a courtesy call on Australia's new minister for the media, Senator Douglas McClelland- He told reporters: "One of my objectives here is to encourage, inspire and foment the local industry." The committee which organized the demonstration said overseas interests monopolize film distribution in Australia and stifle local competition. must be held before any arrests can be made or films seized.

WASHINGTON (Reuter) - The San Francisco Symphony will open a 16-day tour of the Soviet Union beginning June 8, the first American symphony orchestra to perform there since the Cleveland Symphony in 1965, the state department announced here.

WASHINGTON (AP) - Washington's art community turned out in force Thursday night for an exhibition of paintings by prisoners in Auburn, NY., and John and Yoko Lennon sent a message of greeting. It said: "A mirror becomes a razor when it's broken, will become a flute when it's loved. We thank you on behalf of the world for your beautiful project." The exhibition by 21 prisoners of the maximum-security correctional institution at Auburn opens to the public today at the National Collection of Fine Arts, a branch of the Smithsonian Institution. Yoko has been giving a one-woman show at the Everson Museum of Art in Syracuse, N.Y., whose director, James Hariphas, organized the art workshop at Auburn- and arranged the present exhibition. BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) - FBI agents have been viewing X-rated movies at local theatres in preparation for a federal anti-obscenity suit, it was disclosed Thursday. The U.S. attorney's office here said agents have been attending shows at eight movie houses named in federal search warrants. Magistrate Edmund F. Maxwell set next Tuesday for a hearing on whether the films shown are obscene. Federal courts have held that a hearing on the question of obscenity BOLOGNA, Italy (Reuter) - An Italian court has lifted a ban on the controversial film Last Tango in Paris and acquitted American actor Marlon Brando and French co-star Maria Schneider of obscenity charges. The three judges who ruled Friday night also acquitted the three others accused: Italian director Bernardo Bertolucci, producer Alberto Grimaldi and distributor Ubaldo Matteucci. The prosecution had demanded that the five accused should be sentenced to eight months imprisonment and fined $200,000 lire (about $336) each for offending public decency. Last Tango, which tells the story of a violent sexual relationship between an expatriate American (Brando) and a young Parisian girl (Schneider), was denounced for obscenity by a private citizen who attended its first Italian showing near here last Dec. 15. The film subsequently was banned by a Rome public prosecutor after it had been showing for only a few days in Rome and Milan. RAVE REVIEWS IN NY The film opened in New York on Thursday night to enthusiastic reviews. It was claimed the film had artistic value. "On the contrary, art and the law demand that account be taken of the values on which the state and the family are founded." A defence lawyer for Bertolucci, Giuseppe de Luca, accused the prosecutor of taking apart the film so as to highlight only certain scenes. CARRIES A 'MESSAGE* "Marlon Brando personifies the fall of man," the defence lawyer said. "It is he himself who falls into a bottomless pit. And this is the message: Every man risks the game end. "The beat which we find inside Marlon may be in us too. But we are cowards and we try desperately to con trol it." The lawyer said that the erotic scenes are inseparable 'J from the theme of the film. Neither Brando, Miss Schneider, nor Bertolucci were in court to hear the verdict. The ruling means that the film can return to Italian Sinatra named maii-of-year BEVERLY HILLS, Calif.

Drug fibn attacked YELLOW KNIFE, N.W.T. CP) - The French Connection, an action-packed film about drug smuggling in New York City, gave northern native people the wrong ideas about white life in the south, the Northwest Territories Council was told here. "Half the blood and guts was unnecessary," said Lyle Trimble, councillor for Lower Mackenzie and a former RCMP member. "Native people get the idea that the accepted society of Caucasian people is what is portrayed on that movie screen." And, added Councillor Tom BuLters, there was language in the film "which, if I used in this chamber, you'd put me out and if T used it; on the street, the RCMP would put me in." He accused the film of "pandering to the human desire to see blood and guls'' through "this false depiction of violence." Bryan Pearson, member for the Eastern Arctic, said "there's just as much obscenity in the north as there was in the film." "I wonder if we can really dictate to another culture what tbey should look at." STARTS SUNDAY paramount �JlllInfll'M tk St. & 4th Av*.
