Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 26, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 8 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Saturday, October 26, 1974 Increased provincial, local funds West artistic activities to get financial boost By JAMES NELSON REGINA (CP) The Canada Council completes a five-day tour of Manitoba and Saskatchewan today, confi- dent that a renaissance of ar- tistic activity on the Prairies is about to start with increas- ed provincial and local funds. The council, headed by Andre Fortier and Brian Flemmmg of Halifax, held meetings in Winnipeg and Regina with provincial government officials. It also held meetings with artists. The meetings with provin- cial officials were private, but a senior council official said members were encouraged by the evidence that the govern- ments of both Manitoba and Saskatchewan are willing to support the arts with more money during the next few years. The Council itself pours about million a year of federal funds into the arts, and a similar amount into research into humanities and social sciences. But in the include music, drama, painting, sculpture and council has found local and provincial help has been declining in relative terms. Fortier recently warned that an increase in artistic ac- tivity, with help from Canada Council grants, will mean more money will be needed in the years between now and 1980. He has urged private sup- porters to increase contributions to the arts.

While there are corporations here that can afford major contributions to the arts, and do to some extent support sports activities, none of them attended a recent conference sponsored by the council to en- courage business assistance to the arts. On the other hand, Saskatchewan was the first province to set tip an arts council to distribute provin- cial funds to artistic endeavors." The Saskatche- wan Arts Council now sup- ports many' in- stitutions on a matching-grant basis with funds from Ottawa. The Canada council pitch has been made to municipal governments as well as to the provinces. In Winnipeg, the local council has earmarked a year for the five major local arts or- each to the Royal Winnipeg Ballet, the Manitoba Theatre Centre, the local art galleries, museum and symphony. But this amount has not changed for many years. One of the results of the tour may be that 'the Canada Council will establish a more direct line of communication with these Prairie communities, to tap their resources and see that arts activities in the big cities are fed into the national circuit.

Address REX HARRISON Life story of actor published LONDON (Reuter) British actor Rex Harrison's greatest acting achievement was not on stage or in a film studio, a new book reveals. It was in real life, during his marriage to actress Kay Ken- dall, who died from leukemia 15 years ago. For more than two years he knew that Kay his third wife was dying, but her doc- tor had warned him that she must not be told. So he kept the secret, mask- ing his true feelings in the hope that she would not suspect the truth. Harrison relates this in his autobiography, Rex, published today. The story inspired author Sir Terence Rattigan to write the play In Praise of Love. And next month, Harrison will star in it in Washington before bringing it to New York. Harrison's book tells of the whirlwind romance Out led to his marriage to Miss Kendall. Her vitality and magical joy in living "infected me as nothing had ever done be recalls. In New York, both of them went into a clinic for check ups, she because she was suf- fering from headaches and lassitude, be because be was tired after nearly a year's run as Biggins in My Fair Lady. Harrison later teamed of his fiancee's fatal illness. After their marriage, Harrison faced two years that were to be "without doubt the worst and yet the best years of my life."
