Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 18, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Election telly sours Britons ByRODCURRIE LONDON (CP) The elation of television-starved Britons over the return to normal broadcasting during the general election campaign already has turned sour, after only a week of Heath, Wilson, Dracula and warmed-up Ironside episodes. To keep the voters well-in- formed about all the issues in the Feb. 28 election, Prime Minister Heath announced last week that the power- saving p.m. daily TV blackout would be suspended. Political organizers, anticipating the snap election, already were geared for the assault and quickly commandeered much of the extended viewing time. But TV program directors, appar- ently caught off guard, were left digging into stocks of old movies and reruns to fill in the remaining time until normal closedown a.m. With the commercial network and the two BBC channels devoting up to three hours or more a day to politics, the public reaction to DIETRICH DENTURE CLINIC MOSS HOSACK KMtanlc SuW St S.

FURY EXPRESSED "Is this an emergency, or isn't asks an irate beauty- parlor operator, whose business has been dealt a crushing blow by the three- day work week ordered along with the TV curfew Jan. 1. "If there isn't enough power for industry and business, how come we can have Dracula at Some politicians are even getting a bit self-conscious over the monopoly on TV time, with former Liberal party leader Jo Grimond opening a recent broadcast with: "I'm sorry to bore you with yet another party political broadcast...." Members of the strong National Viewers and Listeners Association are begging their president, Mary Whitehouse, to come to the' rescue. Many, Mrs. Whitehouse says, have complained about the "mind-numbing boredom" of it an enormous number of talking heads saying the same things." Out campaigning, several candidates say they are being .berated by voters demanding that they get off the screens and let them enjoy the brief three-week respite from the early close-down.

(CP) The last time civilization came to Horburg the forest was a long time forgetting its cinder-spewing railroad and the bite of its saws. The new intruders are more respectful. A 65-year-old pro- fessor plays chess with a seven-year-old child under a dark spruce. A young poet walks beside a patriarchal moose. In deserted railway build- ings on the land of Garrit and Tina Nijenhuis, 10 professors, writers and critics from Ed- monton and Calgary gather to discuss Alberta's poetry, mu- sic and theatre. They call themselves The Horburg Group and in the wil- derness 65 miles west of Red Deer they are planning sum- mer schools, seminars and a quarterly publication to ad- vance cultural development in the province. "There's a certain in- spiration (at said Mr. Nijenhuis in an interview. "We try to be in contact with which is the stimu- lation for our art." RELATE TO WILDLIFE "It takes two or three weeks to become unafraid of the said Bill Meilen of Edmonton, a University of Alberta drama professor and president of The Horburg Group. "Then you see things with different eyes. You see the close affinity that exists be- tween all animals, listen to the conversation of the forest. One afternoon I became aware of the manoeuvres of dragonflies abeve my head." The Horburg Group grew out of an association between Mr. Meilen and Dr. Clive Car- dinal of Calgary, director of the Canadian Research In- stitute for Ethnic Studies.. The two men were selected by the culture, youth and rec- reation department to co-ordi- nate a provincial poetry con- test and "began to talk about Alberta culture, -where we could find Alberta poetry." They brought others into their discussionrHncluding Kenneth Cal- gary, an art critic, arid poet Gray Sutherland of Calgary, forming the permanent group last June. TRAINED TO TEACH Coincidentally; each person in the group is a trained teacher, said Mr. Meilen. "We have an entire fine arts faculty among us." The Horburg Group is di- verse ethnically and partici- pants speak in Swedish, Cree, Dutch, German, Welsh, French and Italian with Eng- lish translations. Indian culture is repre- sented by a sweat lodge where ancient purification rites such as singing to drums and "taking communion with the earth" by eating berries are performed. "We want to be of the earth, of the people, not intellectual said Mr. Meilen. The .Horburg Group is open to published writers and professional artists but others 'will be encouraged to attend weekend summer schools and seminars. Accommodation for the schools will be provided in rebuilt railway buildings or tents. PUBLICATION PLANNED "In no way can this clash with the Banff School of Fine Arts because Horburg is in- tended for the continuing de- velopment of the practical working artist... to provide a cultural think-tank situ- said Mr. Meilen. "We propose an atmosphere in which things can said Mr. Meilen. "Music, art, poetry, pottery, weaving, dance, drama and all kindred arts should eventually find at Horburg an atmosphere of to- tal freedom for develop- ment." French column in U.S. paper MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) The Manchester Union Leader has started publishing a weekly French langugage column on events .of importance to the French- Canadian community hi New England.

NAME ADDRESS of land jutting south from the British Columbia coast firmly assure visitors that they want their land to remain part of the United States. Point Roberts, all six square miles of it, lies at the tip of an otherwise all-Cana- dian peninsula. Cut off by the 49th parallel, it is surrounded on three sides by water. The only land access to the U.S. is through B.C. "This is the States and i want it tostay that said Shirley Jundul, 25, who works at Ben's Store, adding that she would move if it ever became part of Canada. She didn't know where she would go, "just back to the States somewhere." An International Joint Com- mission (IJC) recently sug- gested that Point Roberts and adjacent parts of B.C. be turned into an international conservation and- recreation area. It apparently rejected the possibility, once rumored here, that Point Roberts might be ceded to Canada.

John Borman, a .carpenter, says he has never been able to tell any difference between the Canadians who live here and the Americans. "Year'kids are just the same as our he said.
