Mackinnon ruled yesterday that a performance by nude dancers two years ago was obscene within the meaning of the Criminal Code Judge Mackinnon allowed a crown appeal against earlier dismissal of charges against three women of taking part in an obscene performance. But he dismissed charges against Main Street Enterprises Ltd and Dennis Van Dooren who was alleged to be in charge of the club Kobenhavn The judge said there was insufficient evidence that Main Street Enterprises Ltd through any of its officers, was even aware of what was going on The three women convicted were each fined or in default 30 days although the juclge said he doubted the Crown would proceed to impose the sentence, because the whereabouts of the women is not known Beachcombers series sold TORONTO (CP) Thirty- nine episodes of the CBC tele- vision series The Beachcombers have been sold for an undisclosed price to the Australian Broadcasting Commission, the network said Thursday The show, which stars Bruno Gerussi, is in its second season It is produced by Philip Keatley in Vancouver and filmed in the nearby fishing hamlet of Gibsons.

(CMHC) said today. CMHC said preliminary fig- ures show housing starts in ur- ban areas alone totalled last month, a 22 per cent in- crease from in January, 1973 The seasonally-adjusted an- nual rate for housing starts in January was for urban and rural areas. Housing starts amounted to in 1973 a record-breaking year The seasonally-adjusted rate is based on such factors as actual starts in 10 major urban centres, availability ot building materials and labor, past performance, weather and the supply of mortgage money CMHC said that the unusually fast start this year is partly due to mild weather in many parts of the country.

The sets a baroque ballroom which converts, by shifting a few screens, into a cathedral were spacious, and the romantic over-all effect was heightened by the lighting of Gil Wechsler ENERGETIC AND WITTY The staging and dance direction by Neumeier was energetic without being angular or athletic, witty without being slapstick, and a closely-knit mixture of classic ballet steps with modern touches. Tomas Schramek danced the role of Don Juan's servant, Catalinon or Leparelo in the Mozart opera version, Don Giovanni with energy making his mimicry of the Don almost a copy of Nureyev. Veronica Tennant was a beguiling Dona Ana, and Mary Jago an enticing Lady in White, who turns out in the end to be the Angel of Death. Priest finds reaction to film 'odd9 ROCHESTER, N.Y. (AP) Rev. William O'Malley who appeared in and acted as an adviser to the film The Exorcist, says he finds public reaction to the movie "very odd." "I don't understand and don't know what the answer is, but the film seems to be fulfilling some kind of be said in an interview. The controversial movie deals with the demonic possession of a young girl. "People are reportedly passing out or becoming ill and yet no one became ul or fainted when the media gave reports on the war in Vietnam, where thousands of men were killed, or Biafra, Bangladesh, or mass killings on our streets like what recently happened on the West Father O'Malley added. "I think we have developed a tolerance for evil." Many people who have seen the film, and even some who haven't, feel they are possessed by the devil and are coming to priests for help, he said "That is hard to understand "The film makes it amply clear that you have to visit psychiatrists, psychologists and medical doctors before the church would even remotely consider touching the thing with an exorcism." Typical of the Neumeier- Nureyev touches was in a scene depicting Don Juan's damnation. As the flames of hell turn the ballroom to a rosy tinge, Nureyev touches up his hair and goes over to the flames to warm his hands OLDTIME MODERN SATURDAY, FEB. 16th-I at the FRIENDSHIP CENTRE Admission Children Under 12 FFM REFRESHMENTS WILL BE AVAILABLE hi DANCE I Sp.oi.
