Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - June 22, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 10 - THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD - Monday, Junt 22, 1970 Excess Play Given ILS. Talent-Hunter By STEVE BAREHAM Herald Staff Writer "Too many Canadian performers are being buried by an excess of American airplay," Tommy Hunter, Cana d i a n country and western artist sadd in an interview in Lethbridge Saturday. "Over - all Canadian artiste probably get good radio cooperation, and now some stations are even very pro-Canadian." Commenting on new proposals of the Canadian Radio and Television Commission, Play Deadline Is August 15 Deadline is Aug. 15 for indications to the Allied Arts Council of intention to enter the Festival of One-Act Plays to run at the Yates Memorial Centre during the week of Sept. 21. About six plays have been committed so far from various Lethbridge groups and individuals. The festival, which could feature up to six nights of three one-acters', is designed for local and community drama groups, either established now or ones organized expressly for the festival. Entries may be fully-produced plays, produced readings, or excerpts from three-act plays. The main emphasis by the arte council is being placed on using the Yates facilities and taking part in the festival, rather than putting on full-scale production. The arts council is also keeping its resource file available for names of persons wishing to take part in the festival as actors, directors, playwrights and backstage workers. Intentions to participate, submitted by groups, would probably come from the directors of the plays. Hunter said, "I don't feel the CRTC rulings will do much, but it may cause more interest in things Canadian." The CRTC has suggested legislation which would bring more Canadian talent to the view of the Canadian public. The commission provides that Canadian radio and television must fill half of its broadcasting time with plays, shows or music which are Canadian. "I think it is basically a good thing, and will probably eventually work, said Hunter. "Canadian recording facilities' are adequate, and if something comes out that is really bad, I think stations have enough sense not to play it just to fill air time. "We are receiving very good support from recording studios such as Capital and RCA Victor," Hunter said, "but there is still room for studio improvement." He indicated that rumors about the CRTC causing his show to be lengthened to one hour were totally untrue. "We had planned to produce an hour show before the CRTC came into the picture." Hunter added, "the only problem is that we've also had the program night changed, and are afraid of losing some of our teenage audience." He declined to compare Ca nadian country and western music with American country and western, saying, "they are two very different types of music. Too many people try to compare everything Canadian with something American." Hunter said he didn't have any thoughts about a move to the U.S. at the moment. "I intend to keep doing television and radio in Canada, but I will go where my work takes me." MUSIC TEACHERS Four experienced teachers are available for summer jobs through the Canada Manpower Centre student place ment division in Lethbridge. Honors Given School Principal HANDSHAKES AND HEUOS, PART OF INDIAN FRIENDSHIP DANCE 200 Take Part And View Handicraft Friendship Centre Officially Open The Lethbridge Friendship Centre, 102 5th St. S., was officially opened Sunday. About 200 people attended the ceremonies and viewed the All-Indian Art and Craft display. The festivities started with a native friendship dance, with all native people forming a circle around the drummers, facing the walls and all non-native people forming a larger circle, facing the inner circle. The two circles of dancers rotated in opposite directions, coming together to shake hands as they danced, Indian-style. Mayor Andy Anderson said the Lethbridge Friendship Centre has to be recognized as a civic development within the city. He said it is a spirit of cooperation, a significant milestone in relations with the native people. Lf/oy Little Bear, past president of the Native Friendship Society of Southern Alberta and a director of the society now, said the biggest problem in the area is the misunderstanding between people. He said people have little knowledge of other ethnic groups and the idea behind the friendship centre is to act as an catalyst to bring people together. J. R.

The question deserves your serious thought. Sure, you'll remember to tell the telephone company you're moving, and to make the routine arrangements, but there's more to the question than that. The house or apartment you're moving to most likely has a different floor plan and different number of rooms from your present home, and that means your telephone requirements will also be different. Take this tip. Before you move, decide in advance on the number and style of telephones you're going to need. Then when you're making the routine call about your move, give AGT instructions about any extra phone installations too! By planning ahead you'll save yourself time and money.
