Lethbridge Herald {Newspaper} - 1974-01-16,Lethbridge, Alberta Actors group plans import ban on U.S. performers WtdflMday,    1«. 1974-THE LtTHBRlOOI HEftALD^T TORONTO (CP> - Dan MacDonald, chairman of the Actors’ Equity AssociatiOD, said yesterday the associaticm will try to ban most of the United States stage performers imported by Canadian theatres. Mr, MacDonald said in an interview that after April 1 the association will not allow its members to work with imports foreign performers unless they are previously an>roved by the association. The Manitoba Theatre Centre was singled out hy Mr. MacDonald as one of the Concert violinist recalls hardship REGINA (CP) - Ernest Kassian used to ride at the back of the bus with his violin case hidden under the seat so his friends wouldn't know he played the instrument. “I lived a schizophrenic life,” recalled the 27-year-old musician, now principal viola with the Regina Symphony. “While my friends were going to movies and football pmes, I was going to music lessons but pretended to be going somewhere else.” Mr. Kassian lived in a rough neighborhood where aspiring concert violinists were likely to be lal>elled something less than masculine. So he kept his musical interests a secret. “I was greatly embarrassed when a teacher would announce to the class that he had seen me play on television or in concert.” The embarrassment was gone when Mr. Kassian headlined a recent concert with a 45-minute solo, his most conspicuous performance since joining the symphony four years ago. He started playing the violin at the age of eight in his native Edmonton and later tried a variety of music—ranging from rock to chamber music. Mr. Kassian became more serious about music while at University of Alberta and switched to the viola, which has deeper tones than the violin. The bearded musician considers himself a teacher first and then a performer. He teaches at University of Saskatchewan’s music conservatory on the Regina campus and helped introduce the Suzuki method in teaching violin to children in Regina and Saskatoon. The method, developed in Japan, teaches the child how to play by imitation of sound rather than by reading notes. Conducting has also attracted Mr. Kassian’s attention, He says his limited exposure to conducting has been rewarding and he would like to do more. “Viola players are frustrated violin players and frustrated conductors.” THE ACTIVE 20-30 CLUB «< LETHBRIDfiE has OLYMPIC $1 MILLION CANADA LOHERY TICKETS Available at: BLOCK BHDS. 1240-3nl Aïe.

It cited one caw which nine of the 11 performers in Hobson’s Choice, a British play, were American. “Certain theatres wilt consistently go out of the country to lo(* for actors before took in Canada.” he said. “We’ve always said we don’t want barriers or Iwrders, but it is not working. So we’re saying ‘Se^ actors in Canada first, because it’s supposed to be Canadian theatre.’” BEST FARTS TO IMPORTS Canadian performers work 94 per cent of the tnan-weeks in professional theatre, he said, but imports usually get bigger salaries and better parts. The chairman said that to -qualify as Canadian, a performer would only have to have landed immigrant status. Foreign performers approved for a specific engagement would have to become association members, he said. It is likely that would allow them to work in Canada permanently. Seek okay to transfer station EDMONTON (CP) -Approval to transfer CKUA radio to the recently - fonned Alberta Educational Communications Corp. is expected in mid-March, says Larry Shorter, corporation president. The application to transfer CKUA, currently owned by Alberta Government Telephones, was made to the Canadian Radio Television Conunisslon two weeks ago. The transfer of ownership would be in line with a provincial government move to br-mg educational television in Alberta under one root. Hearings into the application will be held in Vancouver starting March 11. “ ,. we have to get permission to transfer the fr^uency to our name,” said Mr. Shorter. “Then we want to extend the transmission, and we have to get the okay for each transmitter. “We hope to have the network operating by the end of this year.” $25 million art gallery to open in September Nutcracker ballet Bonnie Wyckoff. 19, of Boston will appear as the principal dancer of the Royal Ballet’s version of Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker batlet when it goes on tour in Western Canada later this month.

She will be succeeded on July i by David Haber, who has been co-artistic director since 1953, MiSS Franca wil remain as a teacher and coach. LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) -A suit asking as much as tI22 million in damages from Heublein Inc., the successor firm to Kentucky Fried Chicken Corp., has been filed by Col and Mrs. Harland Sanders. The suit, filed here, charges that Heublem interfered with Sanders’ attempt to develop a franchise operation for sitAjown restaurants modelled after one the couple operates in Shelbyvllle, Ky. That restaurant is called “Claudia Sanders, ‘The Colonel’s Lady' Dinner House ’ The suit also claims Heublein is misusing Sanders’ name, image and likeness in promoting products with which he has never been connected, including pastries, bread and dairy products. The action says Sanders' efforts to franchise the duner house date from April, 1972. Heublein is said to be interfering with those efforts by claiming “to have onginally acquired rights in these names.” SIGN AGREEMENT OTTAWA (CP) - External Affairs Minister Mitchell Sharp and Ambassador Y.N. Yakovlev signed an agreement Tuesday ratifying extension of the 18-year-old Soviet-Canadian trade agreement. The trade agreement itself, concluded last February, means each country grants the other most-favored-nation treatment — usually the lowest level of tariffs apart from Commonwealth preferences Sanders agreed to sell all of his stock in Kentucky Fried Chicken in 1964, the suit says, and with this sale went Sanders’ three registered trade and service marks: "It’s finger lickin’ good,” “Tender and Tasty Colonel Sanders Kentucky Fried Chicken,” and the colonel’s picture. A spokesman for Kentucky Fried Chicken Ltd. said the Canadian company is not owned by Heublein but is operated by the Col. Harland Sanders Charitable Foundation Inc. Newsmen given new TORONTO (CP) - Visitors to the new Art Gallery of Ontario, when it opens its doors again next September, will find it first a show-casi for contemporary Canadian art and next a museum of old masters and Henry Moore sculptures. Tliat, at least, is bow the layout of the new $25-million structure will seem to the casual visitors. But to the gallery staff, its biggest attraction will be the sculpture court dedicated to the coniempo-rary British sculptor Tlie new gallery has been built around the old, multiplying its floor space about eight times to more than 250,000 square feet. Its display walls will mean that the gallery will be able to show up to 25 per cent of its total collection of art works at any one time. The old gallery limited its display to five per cent. Toronto-bom William Withrow, director of the gallery since 1961, said that traditionally it has devoted half of Its time, energy, space and money to Canadian art. and it will continue to do so. GETS CRITiaSM The fact that the gallery has recently been criticized strongly by young Ontario artists for its interest in classical and foreign art makes Mr, Withrow appear to wince. He said it is partly due to th^ fact that the post of curator of contemporary art was vacant for a year. “I suppose I should have been canning that ball, too, but I was trying to be a museum director, a fund-raiser, a building superintendent, and so on,” he said. The provincial government provided $12,5 million towards the new building and the gallery itself raised more than |S million. By the time the whole project is completed, including additional galleries that are to be built later, the total cost will be about $25 million. No federal funds had gone into the expansion yet, though the gallery has asked for some help beyond what the secretary of state department is willing to put up as part of its new galleries and museums policy. The new building has two basement levels of storage space, all with 12-foot ceilings and doorway clearance to ac. commodate huge works of art. The mam floor and upper levels have similar wide corridors and high doorways, DUBCEK AIDE DEAD PRAGUE (Reuter) - Josef Smrkovsky, 62, right-hand man of former Czechoslovak reformist leader Alexander Dubcek, has died of cancer, his family said Tuesday. He was chairman of the National Assembly when Dubcek came to power in January, 1968, beginning the reform era which ended with the invasion of Czechoslovakia by Soviet-led Warsaw pact troops in August, 1968. with shallow ramps connecting them. The ramp« make it easy for large crowds to move through the gallery, and provide more display area than would stairs, escalators or elevators. At the east end of the building a section is set aside as the Henry Moore sculpture court. The British sculptor is donating more than 300 of his works, including drawings and models, as the nucleus of a collection of modem sculpture, including works by others. It will make Toronto the centre for international study of modern sculpture outside Britain. The Tate Gallery in London is to get the lion’s share of Moore s private collection. Mr. Withrow said visitors to the gallery, entering its main lobby and heading for the Moore court, will have to pass through long corridors of contemporary Canadian art. This, he said, has been planned “with maUce aforethought.' ’ “We are going to make it a showplace for Canadian art, so that people from other provinces and other countries will see what is going on.” The old masten are to be hung in the old Georgian part of the building. The opening of the complete structure in the fall win be an art event of international standing. The Art Gallery of Ontario is something special among provincial or municipal galleries in that virtuaUy no taxpayer money has ever been • spent on acquiring art works. It now has an income of f75,-000 a year from privately-subscribed endowment funds which it spends on new works. It once got t5,000 from the Canada Council on a dollar-matching grant. “This year, for the first time. 1 have asked for purchase money from the Ontario government,” Mr, Withrow said. “I cited the criticism of the young artists that we haven’t bought enough of their works. But whether the government is going to come throu^ or not, I don’t know.” DIETRICH DENTURE CLINIC ROSS HOSACK C«iiHI*d Dvnlil Machanic Sulla 8-304 Sih St. S.
