"He ran out of altitude too soon, was confront- ed by a powerline and a fence and tried to make a steep turn to avoid hitting he said. "When he attempted to turn he was too low and he hooked a wing tip in a plowed field about a mile from the end of the runway. His sailplane cart- wheeled and came to rest up- said another pilot.

Massive fire climax of movie H.T KUDY HAUGKNHUKR Ilcrnld Staff Wriler The Vancouver-based Pacific Rim Films production of "Out" near Spring Coulco suggests the maturing of the Canadian film industry is a long way off. A story about a turaed-on disc jockey who announces from a country house in Any- where, North America, and his girl friend shows even a major Canadian film production isn't enough to support Canadian actors. Only a handful of ac- tors and actresses were used. On-site filming of the production wrapped up this morning with the camera crews heading towards Vancouver for clean up shots. Then it's back on the job-hunting scene for everyone. Friday night's activity en- compassed the burning of the farm house from which the disc jockey worked. But Palti Oatman, a well- proportioned, attractive 22- year-old currently working out of Toronto has high hopes for the Canadian film industry. In her first film, Patti por- trays the part of the disc jockey's girl friend-lover. While the lead actor is an American, the co-star is Leth- bridge-born Scott Hylands. Scott, who hasn't been back in southern Alberta since the age of one-month, doesn't think the Canadian film industry has much (money) going for it now. The industry, in Its current state, doesn't have enough fi- Army handles lost children The Salvation Army will again be looking after children who lose their way at the Whoop Up Days festival next week. The Army will maintain a first-aid station across the hall- way from the police station at the Exhibition Pavilion. Parents should inquire at the first aid station for their missing chil- dren. nancial backing to support Ca- nadian actors, lie says. In contrast io Palli who plans to spend most of her career in Canada, Scott will heart hack to his Los Angelas base "because of the money." Identifying himself as a gyp- sy, he'll act in Canada when- ever there are good-paying parts and will, in fact, move if the industry ever ma- tures to the state where it's capable of adequately support- ing professional film actors. "Out" should be seen In North American movie houses within a year if all goes well. Olher on-site Alberta shots were taken at various locations in Lethbridgc and Magralh. The .script was written by noted Canadian playwright Bill Fruel, produced by Jim Mar- gellos, of Vancouver, and di- rected by David Acomda. The film has a liberal sprin- kling of sex, including a nude scene of the stars riding double on horseback.
