Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 5, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta _ THE IETHBRIDCE HERALD WtxInMday, January 3, 1972 Mission pays and hopes EDMONTON (CP) Hope Mission, which offers physical and spiritual help for the "down and will pay 005 on its outstanding mortgage nnd hope. "We're hoping that money (rill be coming in from busi- ness firms that wait until the year end to see how they have said Howard Hunt, su- perintendent of the 40-year-old mission. "We also liope that the peo- ple who hold the mortgage will give us time." The mi was due Dec. 31. The purpose of the mission is to provide for physical needs as well as spiritual, Mr. Hunt said. He doesn't deny that pos- sibly 90 per cent of (he people come to the mission lor the free food and clothing. "But does that mean we shouldn't try? I feel the results aren't up to us they're up to God." Although the services arc conducted by about 30 of the local churches, few of them donate money or resources to the mission, he said. "Most of it comes from busi- nesses." Although the mission was having financial difficulties, it didn't cut back on the Christ- mas program. "We couldn't do that." It sent about 70 to 75 hampers to needy families in the city and held 8 Christmas dinner for needy children. About 165 children and 64 parents came. BBC faced near-mutiny LONDON (AP) A thousand Yugoslav soldiers ran down the hill to fetch a pail of water With a million or so dollars at stake, British Broadcasting Corp. came tumbling after. BBC faced a near-mutiny by the extras it was using .to record Leo Tolstoy's epic War and Peace as a television serial of 20 episodes. "That's one time we had more war than says producer David Conroy, the man who talked BBC into its biggest gamble in serious drama. The small rebellion of the Yu- g o s 1 a v hired as extras along with fiieir last August at Bela Crkva, Yugoslavia. The temperature was 105. "those poor soldiers were dressed ia heavy wool uniforms and, man, was it Conroy recalls. "They had to charge up the hill tune after time. "In mid-afternoon like one man they suddenly stopped, began waving their rifles in the air and shouting some Serbo- Croat word. Their water supply had broken down during the morning. They hadn't had any- thing to drink for hours." The two-year job on War and Peace will cost "something less than million and something more than said Con- roy. That means million to 6 million. The explosion of the extras was the first of three straight black Tuesday's for the 45-rnem- her camera team and its 85 Yu- goslav-unit workers. "I got S' T hated to wake up on a Tuesuay said Couroy. "Tie first bad Tuesday, the first Tuesday we worked on, was the extras rebelling. The second Tuesday we got rained out completely. "Then, on the ttird Tuesday we were filming at night on the bank of the Danube. The flying beetles were murder. And the lights on the water scared the horses so they wouldn't go down to the water. It was a disaster." SOLD IDEA TO BBC Conroy, 34, sold BBC on the production in 1969. Unlike earlier producers of War and Peace, BBC uses Tol- stoy's epilogue. War and Peace has a baker's dozen major roles, plus 200 speaking parts. Anthony Hop- kins of Britain's National Thea- tre Company plays Pierre and Aalan Dobie, 19 years a stage actor, plays Andrei. Morg Hood, a 25-year-old Scot, plays Natasha. Battle scenes were assigned to Yugoslavia partly because the terrain is right, partly be- cause it's cheaper and partly because the Yugoslav army is one of the few that still can muster a respectable crowd of cavalry. BANK ROBBERY This picture taken by an automatic camera ihows armed rob- bery progress or a bank of Central Virginia branch in Lynchburg, Va. These two and a third robber escaped with Pop bottles refunds Ifs all very confusing CALGAHY may get a little confused when they seek refunds for their soft drink containers from a new collection firm, which has about 60 depots in most Alber- ta towns and cities. The company, called Contain- A-Way Ltd. and set up by two soft drink makers will not han- dle "the 10-ounce stubby non-re- ffflable bottle. It won't take quart-sized bot- tles until about March 1 and will not accept products pro- duced by two other major com panies because of a dispute among bottlers as to how the collection should be handled. Cans of all manufacturers except Coca Cola Ltd. and Pep si, will be accepted, said t] company which opened the de- pots Monday. They were established when the Beverage Container A c went into effect Jan. 1.
