o tax breaks for performers OTTAWA (CP) - Home entertainment and the theatre will benefit from some small tariff cuts announced Monday in Finance Minister John Turner's budget, but artists so far have failed to won the big concessions they want. Import duties are to be reduced on motion picture projectors, theatrical spotlights, phonograph records and pre-recorded magnetic tapes brought into Canada from the U.S. and most European countries. Instructional sound recordings for use in the promotion of knowledge of the arts, sciences, professions, crafts and trades will henceforth come into Canada duty-free from countries enjoying British preferential tariff treatment or most-favored-nations treatment. While Mr. Turner made these tariff reductions as part of a package of scores of import-duty cuts, he gave no special tax treatment for performing artists. At recint meetings of artists in Toronto and Montreal, they complained of lack of recognition for their special problems. Under the Unemployment Insurance Act, actors, musicians and others-unless they are employed on a full-time salaried basis-�re not eligible for insurance benefits. The artists' case is to be put to the federal and provincial governments at a special meeting here early in April.

It has been going on for more than 1,000 years, and-presumably-it will go on for another 1,000 or more. It has had its heroics and pathos. And it can be fun. All this the CBC sets out to prove in a new series, Images of Canada, the first instalment of which will be shown Wednesday night on the CBC-TV English network. . Running weekly until the end of March, the six hour-long color documentaries look at the sweep of Canadian history from coast to coast, and dwell more particularly on the Maritimes, Quebec and Ontario. Later, the CBC plans to do similar programs on Western Canada, to complete a national kaleides-cope of history. Prof. Donald Creighton, author of many popular books on Canadian history including a two-volume biography of Macdonald, The Young Politician and The ,01d Chieftain, stars in the first show. Dick Gregory may end fast TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - Comedian Dick Gregory says he will resume eating as soon as the last American prisoners of war return home. Gregory told a group at Pima Community College here that he would protest the vext war "by sitting in a Howard Johnson's restaurant until the war was over. I wouldn't give up eating again if they were fighting in my living room." One weighing more than 288 pounds, Gregory has lived on fruit juice for nearly two years to protest the Vietnam war.

PRIVATELY-OWNED There are about 270 privatelv-owr.ed radio stations in Canada. BOSTON (Renter) - Yes, there really was a Dracula. The vampire prince was in fact Vlad Tepes known as the Imipaler. He ruled Walachia, now part of Romiania, from 1456 to 1462. Six years of research by two Boston College professors suggests that while Vlad was not actually a vamipire, he was at least bloodthirsty. His favorite practical joke, they say, was to invite elderly crippled people to a lavish dinner and then set the banquet hall on fire. The Dracula, legend has a growing cult of followers. Travel agencies sponsor special "Dracula tours" to Romania where Dracula is something of a national celebrity, says Prof. Raymond T. McNally, director of the Slavic .and East European Centre at Boston College. McNally and his Romanian-born colleague, Dr. Radu R. Florescu, have written a book called In Search of Dracula. FIND CASTLE Aided in their research by Radu's uncle, George Florescu, a Romanian genealogist who found Dracula's burial place in an old church in 1931, the professors located Dracula's castle on a remote mountain peak near Bistrita, Romania. There was a 1,000-foot sheer drop on all sides, and the ruined castle could be reached only by crossing a rickety foot bridge. The Romanian government plans to restore the castle as a famous landmark. McNally and Florescu have made two other trips to Romania since then, continuing their research with the thought of publishing another book. "Some people think it's a put-on," says McNally, "but it is serious historical research. This is our field." The fictional Count Dracula was the subject of Bram Stoker's novel, published in 1897, which formed the basis of the first screen portrayal of the vampire by Bela Lugosi in 1931. "Stoker's character was based on the real Dracula or Vlad Tepes, and embellished with folklore vamipire tales," says McNally.
