Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 21, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta 6 THE LETHBRIOGE HERALD Tuesday, January 21, 1975 CBC-TV Pacificanada series starts Jan. 22 OTTAWA (CP) The burly cop who whistles on his beat, rules the underworld with iron willpower and treats the in- 'nocently wayward with a warm heart is almost a prototype of modern fiction. But fiction comes to life in Vancouver where Sgt. Bernie Smith patrols a block or two of Hastings Street where the whores, junkies, alkies, pimps and pushers tend to gather. Though his methods may be unorthodox, he has won com- mendations for his manner of keeping things on Hastings Street under control, while he strolls along the sidewalk from one incident to the next, whistling an indefinable tune. Sgt. Smith, his work and his philosophy of crime preven- tion have been put on film by the National Film Board for a new series of 30-minute .documentaries to be broad- cast by CBC-TV starting Jan. 22. The series, under the general title, Pacificanada, in the big cities and the wild interior of British Columbia. It follows earlier NFB series on Quebec, Adieu Alouette, and on the Prairies, called West. The first three of the eight films were recently preview- ed here for reporters. The Sgt. Winnipeg native named theatre centre director WINNIPEG (CP) Actor Len Cariou, a former Win- nipegger who has been associate director since 1972 of the Guthrie Theatre in Minneapolis, has been named artistic director of the Manitoba Theatre Centre. Mr. Cariou, who started his theatre career acting in nightclubs and at Rainbow Stage in Winnipeg, joined the Guthrie in 1966 after four years as a member of the. Theatre Company in Strat- Ont. Performances in Broadway iroductipns of Applause and a Jttle Night Music earned Mr. Cariou two Tony award lominations. Currently he is lirecting a new play on Broadway, entitled Don't Call Jack. Mr. Cariou, who recently has directed plays at the Guthrie, off Broadway and at the Rochester Shakespeare Festival, takes up the post April 1. He succeeds Edward Gilbert, who has resigned. Mr. Cariou first appeared with the MTC in 1961, in Mister Roberts. Dr. E. G. Brownell, presi- dent of the MTC, said the theatre is delighted, to have obtained the services of "such a distinguished theatre artist" whose early career is closely identified with the MTC. "We are especially pleased that after carefully consider- ing applications from all parts of Canada, the United States and Great Britain, the man we want for the job has turned out to be a native of Win- nipeg." Smith story, Whistling Smith, tops the three in both drama and entertainment. A whore com- plains she can't make a living while he is on duty. His simple way of dealing with ladies of the night is to tell them bluntly: "Don't hustle on my beat." If they must hustle, in other words, go somewhere let someone else deal with them: Sgt. Smith says his most difficult problem is dealing with drunks, and the easiest way to get alcohol on Hastings Street is in vanilla extract. There is more vanilla extract sold on Hastings Street than elsewhere in nobody.bakes cakes there. Donald Brittain, a former journalist, does the com- mentary for Whistling Smith. Pacificanada opens Jan. 22 with a documentary on the Ni- cola Valley, 250 miles from Vancouver, where cattle and horse ranching is the main ac- tivity. In the town of Merritt, the roughest, toughest bar is in the Adelphi Hotel. It is portrayed as the centre of life where beer, whisky, cigarettes, hard work, open air, good food and good fellowship all contribute to longevity. A Slow Hellow tells the story of a 64-year-old ranger who marries a pretty 32-year-old. Whistling Smith is the se- cond of the Pacificanada series, to be shown Jan. 29, and the third is a sometimes lyrical account of British Columbia's favorite sport, Soccer. Ian McLaren, who produced the Adieu Alouette series, is executive producer of Pacificanada. WHISTLING SMITH Ex-Supremes member on welfare DETROIT Florence Ballard thought she was mak- ing enough money to last her a lifetime when she was cutting gold records with Diana Ross and the Supremes a few years ago. Today she is 31, broke, has three children and lives on welfare in a flat on Detroit's. West Side. Florence Ballard, Mary Wilson and Diana Ross rose from Detroit's Brewster Housing Project in the early 60s to cut eight gold records in two years. Then Cindy Birdsong replaced Miss Ballard for an appearance at the Hollywood Bowl. 1975 CANADA WINTER GAMES EVENT TICKETS Tickets To All Events Available At: WINTER GAMES TICKET and INFORMATION CENTRE (Old Lethbridge Public Library Building) DOWNTOWN LETHBRIDGE 3rd Ave., 6th St. S. the following VENUE SITES BLAIRMORE Simpsons Stirs Silts Offict BOW ISLAND Southern Alberta Co-Op CARDSTON Mtpn Men's Wnr CLARESHOLM Will's Shots COALDALE Co.ldlll Sportsplex FORT MACLEOD Fort Micleod Arini TABER Tibtr Ricreilion Offiw PICTURE BUTTE Fletchers Miyfilr Foods STANDOFF Blood Tribe Administration Office MABRATH-Magnth Trading Compsny PINCHED Pliannity, Pincher Creek CoOp.
