CHUM shared with CHQT Edmonton the winner's spot in station-produced commer- cials in the products-ser- vices sold to consumers in markets with a population of more than The Toronto station shared with CJAD Montreal the top spot in public service commercials for the same size market. CKCY was the winner in the market for public service commercials as well as in the corporate in- stitutional category. Station CHQR Calgary won in the corporate institutional category for markets over Station CFAX Victoria was the winner in markets over in the products ser- vices category while station CKEC New Glasgow was the winner in the same category in markets with a population of under The current issue of TV Guide is of more than passing interest and should certainly find a place in the family album of the Bud Matheson family. In it will be found a feature spread on the made- for-TV movie Locusts much of which was shot on the Matheson farm. Originally titled Black Harvest it stars Ben Johnson, Ronny Howard and Lisa Gerritson and will be seen this Wednesday (Channel 11) as the ABC movie of the week. The trials of location shooting are only sketched in the Guide story. For locals who got involved as extras the experience was an eye- opener. And a far cry from the imagined glamour of movie making was the dust, sweat and interminable waiting. Especially the waiting as shots were set up and re-take followed re-take. It was all taken philosophically by the professionals; the women passed the time seated on kitchen chairs in the Matheson farmyard with their needlepoint and instructed Lisa Gerritson in the art. For 55-year-old Ben Johnson it was another chapter in a HOTEL TAVERN ENTERTAINMENT NIGHTLY FWWWVUVWVUWUV Lounge Nightly: Bonney Rudy GERMAN CANADIAN CLUB REGULAR DANCE SAT., OCT. 5th p.m. Music by FIORINO Members and Invited Guests Only DON'T FORGET FOLKS our giant "KIRMES BEERFEST" NOV. 9th Lethbridge Exhibition Pavilion career he began as a stunt rider, enriched in a long association with director John Ford as one with Jane Darwell, Harry Carev Jr. and Ward Bond in the Ford acting stable, and topped with his Oscar winning performance in The Last Picture Show. Ronny Howard is no tyro either, despite his youth. A long running series has him as son to Andy Griffith, last year brought him American Graf- fiti and his own series Happy Days has survived into a se- cond season. Lisa Gerritson is just fifteen but already she's racked up an Emmy nomination for her delightful performance in the series My World and Welcome To It and is a regular (as Cloris Leachman's daughter) in the Mary Tyler Moore show. Hours of work including the daily chore of viewing the "rushes" in the small hours at the Paramount Cinema now edited to a 90-minute TV movie. It should have a hefty view- ing audience from this area Wednesday, many looking for a quick glimpse of themselves on film. But don't be disap- pointed if yours, like many a more famous name, turns out to be the face on the cutting room floor. Between super-highways and urban development locations are getting tough to find. But Alberta's romance with Hollywood is paying off.

Saturday (Ch. 13) or Sunday (Ch. 11) you can catch up on the aforementioned The Last Picture Show. Undoubtedly Peter Bogdanovich's best work to date, it movingly cap- tures the arridity of life in a small prairie town. Casting elements are exceptionally strong with Johnson, Cloris Leachman, Jeff Bridges, both Timothy and Sam Bottoms and Randy Quaig, who later scored in The Last Detail. Possibly edited for television it should register well on the small screen with the inspired use by Bogdanovich of black and white and absorbing per- formances. Saturday morning if the family set is not committed .to the Canada Russia hockey game there's a special treat (Ch. 7) in the television adap- tation of Mary Norton's enchanting book The Borrowers. Eddie Albert stars and this is definitely something for family sharing.
