Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 11, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta a THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD Tutfday, 11, 1975 Arts industry study planned By JAMES NELSON OTTAWA (CP) A two- year study into the economic impact and problems of a industry the arts in Canada is likely to start this summer. The study, into all the social and economic contributions made to the country by the arts generally, was announced in Vancouver by Secretary of State Hugh Faulkner. An official of his depart- ment here said the govern- ment is looking for a person to head the study, and may have to go outside the public ser- vice to find one even though most of the work of the study will be done within the Why Do You Use Poor English? A well-known publisher reports there are simple techniques in using everyday English, which can pay you real dividends in social and business advancements by helping you to express your ideas in a more interesting and convincing manner. According to this publisher, many people do not realize how important it is to know how to use effective English. Whether in business, at social functions or even in casual conversation with strangers, there are ways you can use the English language to make a good impression each time you speak or write. To acquaint the readers of this paper with the easy-to- follow rules for developing skill in everyday Engish, the publishers have printed full details of their interesting self-training method in a 32- page booklet, "How You Can Gain a Command of Good which will be mail- ed free to anyone who re- quests it.

Regardless of who does the study, problems are bound to arise due to a lack of well founded statistics in the field. There is no firm estimate of the dollars and cents value of the industry, which embraces the visual, perform- ing and creative arts, and measuring its value in terms of personal enjoyment for the performers, creators and audiences is probably im- possible. It was estimated that in 1972 73 the performing arts organizations supported by the Canada Council in the fields of music, theatre the dance, and their variations, spent a total of million. With inflation, increased ac- tivity and a multiplication of new groups not. yet receiving council assistance, the figure now probably is double. Other forms of the arts, an official said, might well bring the figure to far more than J100 million. In his Vancouver speech, Mr. Faulkner said the federal government will increase its aid to the performing arts by million in the new fiscal year, starting April 1, with a further promise of.. travelling grants for per- formers engaged in special' events connected with the 1976 Olympic Games. Of the million, million is to go to the Canada Council for its support of the current activities of perform- ing arts companies and per- formers. In the current fiscal year, the council devoted million to helping older, well established performing groups, and million on new performing arts organizations. An official said that, in general, the performing arts organizations finance themselves only to the extent of 50 per cent from box office receipts. The Canada Council iupplies roughly another 25 ser cent of their needs, and Shey depend on provincial, municipal, and private sup- port for the remainder.

Pro Motors Ltd. 1520 2nd Avenue South: 328-8117 Street's Theatre Row since March 12, 1921, is being tran- sformed into a new structure which will include two es- calators and an elevator for patrons in wheelchairs. Six theatres will be ranged on three levels to accommodate patrons. Doug Gow, vice-president of western operations for Famous Players, said plans for the project are not yet complete but the company hopes to preserve as much as possible of the original main concourse. Only the main auditorium of the old Capitol is being demo- lished: Seats were being torn out of the disused balcony even before the last show ran its course. The theatre that open- ed with The Love Special clos- ed with The Spectre of Edgar Allen Poe. Then a breaking ball and 12 wreckers began performing their act. CEILING UNIQUE It was no ordinary wrecking crew was dealing with a piece of art. "There is no wood in that ceiling and said Jack Dlar, one of the partners in he wrecking company. "It's all wire, mesh, steel and that's quite'a feat to lave the ceiling all suspended romwire." The theatre, he said, was milt like a bridge, with sup- lort pillars forming the anchor. The outside walls were hot bearing walls. Remains of the theatre will est in many places when the emolition crew has finished ts job. The Centennial Museum will get.plaster ecoration from the tops of wo pillars. Facing bricks, arpeting, ornamental iron work, stairway rails, light fix- ures and steel trusses will be old. And sometime next fall it ill only be a memory as lousands file into the new tructure to eat their popcorn nd let the show continue.

Radio station warned VICTORIA (CP) The Canadian Radio Television Commission has warned Vic- toria radio station CFAX about its promotional ac- tivities. The station's broadcasting licence was renewed this week. A written decision from the CRTC said: "with respect to CFAX, the commission is concerned with the amount of promotional and commercial references, activities and devices and the manner' in which they permeate the over- all programming of the station. "The commission expects the licensee to reduce the in- cidence of such material in its programming." Referring to concerns ex-- pressed by Mayor Peter Pollen of Victoria about the quality of broadcasting and the need for radio service which is more than promotional, the commission reminded CFAX "of their responsibility to examine their community's needs con- tinually and to direct substan- tially the greater part of their energies to programming ac- tivities rather than to promotional activities." Mel Cooper, CFAX president, said he does not view the CRTC comments as an admonishment of the station. "I view their comments as not a put down but a tag thing they added. Obviously I will attempt to find out what areas concern he said. TV highlights i TUESDAY CRIME-DRAMA: Hawaii Five 0, p.m., Ch. 13 and 7 p.m., Ch. 9.
