Set unobtrusively in Korea during the war of the early 1950s, it is a movie that follows the wounded soldier after he has been dragged away from the front lines by the brave Medical Corps man. The heroes of M.A.S.H. are the surgeons, nurses and assort- ed high-ranking nincompoops who must deal with the grisly after-effects of war. A startling black comedy, its humor is never far from the madness that lurks about the gory oper- ating tables. It is probably the only war story whose secondary stars are pints of blood and a camp public-address system'. "Urine specimens will be tak- en from camp personnel today at 1800 hours. I mean, 2150 hours. make that 9 o'clock tonight. (Crackled pause) Cancel that last order." A surgeon saws off a man's leg while a nurse scratches his nose with a pair of foreceps. Pieces of men's innard miss the slop pail and lie like chick- en hearts on the operating room floor. A naive priest is called away from performing the Last Rites to hold a thread and queasily hold down his stomach. To get through this valley of blood, guts and dying flesh, M.A.S.H.'s men and women drink, slip away into each other's tents and attack the slightest bit of pretention. Some of their attacks are about as professionally cruel as than- work is merciful. A sanctimonious major takes time out from Bible-reading to visit the head nurse's quarters. Both are unaware of Hie micro- to the camp loudspeaker which has been placed under the bed. A pri- vate activity becomes a public performance. The same nurse, Hot Lips Houlihan, a kind of female 20- year man, is blonde, but who knows if she's a real blonde? After taking bets, the camp gathers round the tent where she's taking a shower, the side flap is pulled up and voila. Although there are no real stars in the movie, Canadian actor D onald Sutherland ap- pears as a dumpy gangly sur- geon who couldn't a tux- edo without making it look like overalls. Elliott Gould (of Bob and Carol and Ted and as his side-kick, is jnly slightly neater than Sutherland in that his pants haven't been hacked off at the knees. M.A.S.H. .doesn't miss taking a poke at much of anything from the Star Spangled Banner to incompetent officers but it does get heavy-handed and tasteless at times. A take-off of the Last Supper is clever but u n ne ce s s a r y. Some of the satire falls flat. But it's an intriguing movie and very funny at times. JTEEVEE: The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation gave us three hours on the Quebec election Wednesday, and it was one of the funniest comedy specials produced on a Cana- dian'network this year. Running on Channel 7, the coverage of the Liberals' land- slide win in the provincial elec- tion, featured a cast of what seemed like hundreds of CBC pontiffs, garbled voices and some strange camera work. The main desk in Montreal was anchored by Norman De- Foe, Canada's walking com- mercial for the current anti- cigarette campaign. Mr. DePoo whose voice resembles a bag- pipe without the heat, at one point reached for a cigarette, locked away from the camera, then put the cigarette down. (Has the CBC taken the A camera followed Liberal leader Bourassa's entrance to his campaign headquarters. When he disappeared through doorway, we were treated to the sight of newspaper camera men taking pictures of the crowd, and the TV camera too it seemed. Interviewers kept cutting into other interviewers' sage re- marks. At one point a girl walk- ed across the back screen be- hind the Montreal desk set. Who she was nobody knows. And then, for me, there was the clincher, in which some one described us non-Quebeckers as "Toronto and the rest of Can- ada." But the major beef is that after all the talking was done, the media TV, radio and newspapers led us dwn the garden path about the elec- tion. Although analysts had prophe- sied the Liberals would win, and the percentage of votes was close to estimates, the pro- gram suggested there are more federalists in Quebec than we supposed. This is not to say the elec- tion indicates a demise of the separatists Parti Quebecois. But lie few shots of the Liberal headquarters stowed us Quebec residents who want con- federation to remain and saying so in French. The program seems to under- line the feeling so many west- erners have that the east sees the west only as a problem area not as a place where peo- ple live. Every time the CBC, or the GTV, wants to reveal Quebec to us, we seem to get (at least, we used to) separatists or dyed- in-the-wool, English speaking federalists. Symphony Boss Quits His Post WINNIPEG (CP) George Wolfgang Cleve has resigned his post as conductor and mu- sical director of the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra for "per sonal reasons." The resignation was an- nounced in a statement issued by the symphony's board of di- rectors. Mr. Cleve, 34, had held the post for two years.

Get Out of Life the Family to a We seldom get a sense of the ordinary Quebec citizen, wlmt he does for a living, how he feels about the Queen, or Can- ada or the west. And the same picture of the west is pushed out by, particu- larly, television. The west is a place of: I. a wheat surplus, 2. dumb fanners, 3. mining of- fences. We're not a complex soc- iety; we're just a pain in the nation's nsck. If the CBC wants to follow its mandate that of mirror- ing the country to itself it would do well to get out of Tor- onto's inner-group pubs, and Montreal's too, and seek out the mechanic, the farmer, the professor, the businessman. Westerners then might be sur- prised to find that the basis of their increasingly separatist feelings have roots in close to the same issues as do Que- bec's separatism.
