Election splits movie world HOLLYWOOD (Reutor) _ A bitterly contested election tor top posts in the Screen Actors' Guild lias ended in a 2-to-l victory for a moder- ate slato headed by John Gavin, who defeated Bert Freed and Canadian Donald Sutherland. The contest, which split tlic Hollywood movie world, took place when Charlton lleston re- tired as guild president after six years. The final result was for Gavin and for Freed. The dissident slate said it would try to borrow million front Congress to help stimulate film production and would also stimulate a closer relationship between the guild's administra- tion and its widespread mem- bership. The dissidents also charged that the present guild adminis- tration was loo much in collu- sion with film producers, a charge bitterly denied by lles- ton and Gavin. Burt Lancaster, .lack lam- mm, Rvan O'Neal, Owbra Streisand" and Shelly Winters were for the Freed-Sulherland Uckct A much longer list, headed by Robert M i I c h u m, Anthony CJuinn, Gary Crosby, Clint Eastwood and Lu- cille Ball, backed Die winn- slate. Accusations of "liar, naked slander" and "witch-hunt" flew during the campaign.

But wait folks, something's wrong. Yesshree, something is wrong in the big city. There is no traffic! What is it that is wrong? Just the end of the world, that's all nothing Mr. Heslon can't handle. As a man wtx) earned his daily bread for many years playing in Biblical epics, Mr. lleston slips easily into the role of the man who holds the future I of mankind in his capable hands, a god-like kind of man.

Mere are some more facts and figures, gleaned from the annual report of the Canadian Film Development Corporation. In I8C3, 4.1 cents of every recreation dollar was spent go- ing to the movies. By 1969 this had dropped to 3 cents. At the same time, total leisure-time spending jumped to thousand million, from S22 thousand million. (Although the report is a little vague, it is as- sumed these figures are for Hie United States.) Much of the increase appar- ently went for television sets, radios, stereos and records. Investment in film production in the U.S. dropped 23 per cent in 1970 and 30 per cent over the two-year period. At the same time, the actual volume of films in distribution has doubled in the past three years. There were in UK U.S. last year. In that same period there was also a 12 per cent rise in theatre grosses, because of the general inflation in ticket prices. The 1970 Canadian scene was like films released rose to 609 from 649 (10 of them Canadian admission re- ceipts rose 3.8 cen' s million; average ticket cost went up 14 per cent to Si .39; CLUB CORNER 2nd AVE.

While the Canada Council grant to Prof. Needham will have some immediate and practical benefits for him and the orchestra he conducts, the council also hands out money (a total of S10.5 million this year) for more esoteric pro- jects.

Melissa Tonne-March, now working in MGM's A Case of Need, was "discovered" while toiling in an ice-cream store. When stardom called she had "no thought of being an actress." Twiggy7, who looks as if she has little interest in intellec- tual endeavors, must have something on the ball. She was recently quoted as saying, "Honestly, it makes me so mad the way' everyone assumes a girl's got to be married before shs can be happy." You've got to admire the way she cut right to the heart of (he matter. The women's lib movement will probably never have an- other spokesman quite so elo- quent.
