Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 15, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 6 THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD TiMtday, October 19, 1974 Yukon jobs for dancers SAN FRANCISCO (AP) A recruiter here is telling potential dance hall girls they can get some idea of how cold it is in the frozen Yukon by standing nude in front of the refrigerator for about an hour. "We've been deluged by topless dancers, secretaries and even housewives, all look- ing for extra income and ex- 94-year-old steel worker finally decides to retire SAN FRANCISCO (AP) His doctor and his boss decid- ed it finally was time for 94- year-old Ricardo Basques to retire, and the spunky steel mill worker has accepted the decision grudgingly. "I don't like to be Basques said. "As long as I can move around, I'd rather be working. But who would hire me at my Basques worked for Bethlehem Steel's South San Francisco plant since 1943. He officially retired Sept. 27, but for six months before that he'd been mostly on disability because of painful arthritis in his legs. The union contract sets no mandatory retirement age. citement." said George Lang of Alex G Enterprises, who lures prospective candidates with promises of good money, fun and excitement, reminis- cent of the gold rush days. "This may have the appearance of something shady, but it's perfectly legitimate." Mr. Lang said. "We want hoofers, not hookers." Mr. Lang says he was com- missioned by a beer parlor in Whitehorse to hire dancers at a week on a one month contract with options, along with free lodging and tran- sportation. Lang said women have responded by the score to a newspaper advertisement here, all apparently eager to try their fortunes in frontier country. GET TICKETS NOW!

(AP) Actress Elizabeth Montgomery, whose Bewitch- ed television series was cancelled after a long run, has ended her 11-year marriage to the producer of the series. The couple cited "irrecon- cilable differences." The blonde actress, who became familiar to television audiences as Samantha, the witch with the twitchy nose, received her final divorce decree Thursday from William Milton Asher, 47, her third husband. The Ashers were married in 1963 and have three children. The couple met when Asher directed Miss Montgomery in the pilot show for her series. Farm cash receipts up OTTAWA (CP) Farm cash receipts during the first eight months of 1974 were up 51.4 per cent over the same period of 1973, Statistics Canada Reports. The total of billion, for all provinces except New- foundland, compared with billion for the same period last year. OTTAWA (CP) The Cana- dian Radio Television Com- mission (CRTC) reserved its decision on a bid by Campeau Corp., of Ottawa, to takeover Bushnell Communications Ltd. and CJOH-TV, the Ot- tawa peg in the CTV Network. Robert Campeau, founder and head of the million conglomerate whose only other interest outside real es- tate is Blue Bonnets racetrack in Montreal, said his firm wants the Bushnell interests as a good investment. It has offered more than million for controlling interest in Bushnell, now held by Western Broadcasting Co. Ltd., and a share for all other stock, getting complete ownership for about million. The deal is subject to CRTC approval. Stuart Griffiths, president of Bushnell Communications, said the directors of his firm had recommended acceptance of the Campeau offer, and all had offered their shares. But he said the management of the company hasn't decided for or against the sale. He thought the firm could carry on with some additional financing it could raise privately. The Centre Town Communi- ty Association of Ottawa and some other community interests objected to the Campeau takeover, saying the firm has such powerful real estate interests it would face conflict of interest in trying to run an independent TV station, broadcasting news and public affairs. Mr. Campeau promised complete independence for the news department. He said he recognized that if he ever tried to use the station to promote any of his business interest, public reaction would go strongly against it. Western Broadcasting's interest in Bushnell and CJOH has to be sold under a CRTC decision disapproving its purchase of the Ottawa enterprise earlier this year. Mr. Campeau repeatedly emphasized during a four hour hearing his interest in Bushnell only as an investment. He said Ernest L. Bushnell, founder of the firm who has been in broadcasting for 48 years, could remain with the station as long as he wished. Whether the Bushnell firm continue as a separate company with its own board, or be absorbed into the Campeau Corp., would be decided later, Mr. Campeau said. Comedian gets personal items in divorce suit LAS VEGAS, Nev. (AP) Comedian Redd Foxx will keep as property from a divorce settlement at least 40 jazz albums, a 'dune buggy, a motorcycle, a photo of Joe Louis and the ring he wears. A judge told the star of the Sanford and Son television series yesterday that he could keep these items. The judge set Oct. 29 for a further hear- ing on community property and the divorce action. The judge acted after Foxx requested those personal items to be released by his wife, Betty Sanford. They were married 18 years ago. REDD FOXX Retail sales on increase OTTAWA (CP) Total retail sales increased by 2.7 per cent, adjusted for seasonal variations, in August compared with the previous month, Statistics Canada reported today. The August consumer price index level reported previous- ly was one per cent higher than the July level.

Ten of the groups had declines, headed by drops of 4.9 per cent for men's clothing stores. The Statistics Canada report said there was a low response rate from retail out- lets surveyed for sales total and said "readers are warned to exercise caution in the use of these data."
