Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 12, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 6-THE LETHBRIDQE February Lunch hour break Joan Athey enjoys a lunch hour skate on a parking lot at the foot of York St. in Toronto. The cold weather has many residents complaining but miss Athey finds that if you keep moving the near-zero temperatures have little effect Lowest in six years Apartment vacancy rate on decline OTTAWA (CP) The apartment rental situation currently is "unhealthy" for tenants and the immediate outlook is discouraging, say government housing experts. A December survey of the Central Mortgage and Housing Corp (CMHC) shows the apartment vacancy rate nationally has dipped to 2 1 per cent, the lowest level in six years That is a national average with actual rates varying across the country Rates by city range from a low of .3 per cent in Vancouver, Victoria, St. John's. Nfld and Saskatoon to a high of 10.7 per cent in Sudbury, Ont. Sources say a vacancy rate of three to four per cent generally yields fair rents for tenants and is attractive enough for builders to put up more apartment buildings But with vacancy rates below that level, apartment owners could safely push up rents, they say. The immediate outlook for new apartment construction is also bleak, these sources say Interest rates were above 10 per cent, discouraging new investment in apartment building MATERIALS SHORT Other housing experts have said recently that shortages of building materials may reduce residential construction this year and raise costs CMHC figures indicate that starts on new apartment construction rose three per cent last year, but that includes condominiums owned outright by the occupants. Condominiums are growing in popularity as single-family home prices rise. Informants question whether the pace of rental apartment construction actually increased last year. The CMHC survey covers apartment buildings with six or more rental units but excludes structures completed during the six months before the December survey date Vacancy rates for metropolitan areas with December, 1972 figures in brackets: Calgary, 7.9 Chicoutimi-Jonquiere, Que, Edmonton, 5 2 Halifax, 21 Hamilton, Ont, 22 (2 Kitchener, Ont, 3 6 (4 London, Ont, 36 Montreal, two Ottawa-Hull, 19 (1 Quebec, 31 Regina, one St Catharines-Niagara, Ont., 4.4 Saint John, N.B., 0.4 St John's, Nfld, 03 Saskatoon, 03 Sudbury, Ont, 10.7 Thunder Bay, Ont., 0.9 (0 Toronto, 14 (2 Vancouver, 03 Victoria, 03 Windsor, Ont., 1.9 Winnipeg, 3 3 (4 2) Stricter import controls urged on pure-bred dogs TORONTO (CP) It has all the makings of a cross- country dogfight.

The kennel club wants the federal government to slap tight controls on the importation of pure-bred dogs, a move that might wipe out pet-store sales worth millions of dollars. Hilda Pugh, president of the kennel club, said in Toronto the influx of dogs is deteriorating the quality of breeds and compounding the pet explosion. She also said there have been many complaints about unhealthy puppies being sold by pet stores. Also, it is apparent that dog breeders want a bigger share of the lucrative pet boom. Norman Lewis, president of House of Puppies in Toronto, a firm which deals solely in purebred dogs, said the kennel club proposal would wipe out his business, which took 10 years to build up. NEED PURE-BREDS He claimed the kennel club wants a monopoly on the sale of pure-breds. The kennel club will be ask- ing for changes in the federal Livestock Act to limit dog im- ports to six per person per year. Mr. Lewis sold about dogs last year from one store. He said about 60 per cent of the dogs be sells come from either the United States or England. "If I can't import dogs, I'm out of be said. Another major importer, Peter Merrill, president of PJ's Pet Centres Ltd., said his firm imports all dogs because the Canadian Kennel Club isn't doing its job. Mr. Merrill complained that the kennel members raise dogs as a hobby and do not make registration papers readily available to the public. Veterinarians generally are less man enthusiastic about pet store operations. One Toronto veterinarian explained that because pet stores get dogs brought in from all over there is litUe control. "Any tame you have a large number of animals together, you're going to have health problems It's the same as a commune of hippies when they (the dogs) are in very dose proximity they will often transmit diarrhea, fleas he said.

(AP) Groucho Marx re- sponded sentimentally to news that he would be awarded a special Oscar at the Motion Picture Academy awards April 2. "I only wish that Harpo and Chico could be here to share the comedian said. Then he added reflectively, only Minnie were here." Minnie Marx was the legen- dary matriarch of the per- forming family and Groucho remarked, "None of us would have amounted to anything if it hadn't been for her." "What a woman she was! She said that Sam, her husband, could cough all night and she wouldn't wake up. But if one of her sons coughed just once, she was awake immediately." The academy board of governors this week voted Marx the award for "his brilliant creativity and for the unequalled achievements of the Marx Brothers in the art of motion picture comedy." COMEDIES CHERISHED Groucho is the remaining member of the zany trio whose comedies of the 1930s are cherished by each new generation. Two other brothers are alive: Zeppp, who played the romantic interest in the early films, and Gummo, who managed the team. At 83. Groucho's walk is de- liberate, the quips come less rapidly. But he is as unregene- rate as ever, making innocently lascivious remarks to pretty women and continuing his longtime warfare with inattentive waiters. He recently demanded faster service at a hotel where he has been eating for 40 years "I only have two the waiter snapped. "Did you ever see anybody with three hands7" Groucho replied. The comedian spends much of his time at his Beverly Hills home and leads an active social life, often going to film previews. Will Groucho perform again? GROUCHO MARX "If you mean concerts like the ones I did last I'll do the Merv Griffin Show and I'll appear with Johnny Carson if he would tape in the afternoon. My doctor doesn't want me to stay up till 2 a.m." Even without performing, Groucho earns a handsome in- come. His manager, red- haired Erin Fleming, whom Groucho describes as "the woman I reports that he collected in 1973 from endorsements, record albums, merchandise and other sources. Director of sex movie wonders about all fuss By BOB THOMAS LOS ANGELES (AP) Last Tango in Paris has caused a furore over its explicit sex and language, but Bernardo Bertolucci says it was too chaste. And he wonders why so much fuss was raised over the picture. Bertolucci, who directed the movie, believes if Tango had not featured such a well- known star as Marlon Brando, it would have passed through the world's movie theatres with little incident Perhaps. But Last Tango in Paris has been a cause celcbrc since its release last February, and it no doubt will continue to be. Voters of the Motion Picture Academy now are faced with the dilemma whether to reward the film's artistic merits or to overlook it because of its notoriety. Bertolucci, an Italian, was here for a publicity round to further the prospects of Tango. At 32, be has the round face of a radicalized altar boy, and be talks with a certain innocence. His English is improving, but he requires the help of an interpreter. "When I was making Tango, I was upset about what I was he said. "Not nega- tively upset, but terribly in- volved in the many problems between myself and the picture I never thought later that it would arouse so much controversy. I thought, in fact, that the sex scenes were too chaste and could have been more explicit" CHARGED WITH CRIME The trouble began in his na- tive land, where Tango was ated on obscenity charges in Bologna. Bertolucci, Brando, co-star Maria Schneider, pro- ducer Alberto Girmaldi and the distributor were all charged with criminal offence. "It was my first time in a courtroom, and I felt like a Bertolucci said. "Of course, we are all criminals, in that we feel a sense of guilt. So when you appear in a court, all your guilt comes out "But I felt it was important to make a stand in the interests of the Italian cinema. I feel the attack on Tango was entirely political. There are a lot of really pornographic films that play in Italy without interference. The politicians hit Tango because of its vision of life, its vision of the family." The case against Tango lost in the Bologna court, but was reversed by a higher court An appeal is being made, and in the meantime the film is banned in Italy. But Bertolucci reported happily that crowds of Italians are riding special trains to France so they can see the film. "Tango has been banned in all the fascist countries- Greece, Spain, Portugal, Bra- zil." said Bertolucci. whose previous films reflected his radical views. "In England, I took out IS feet of film at the request of the censor. "I also made three cuts for the Italian censor before it was banned. I was told to make my own cuts, and I not in the places that were said to be objectionable. 1 made the cuts I wanted for smoother editing."
