Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 22, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Wednesday, September 22, 1971 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 7 CTV proposes delay TORONTO (CP) The CTV Television Network Lid. lias ap- pealed to the Canadian Racliiv Tclevisiou Commission to delay implementing Hie requirement for (iD-per-ccnl Canadian content in Canadian television program- ming because of network finan- cial problems. Murray Clicrcover, network president, told the commission Tuesday that CTV loses about million replacing a U.S. one- hour show wth a Canadian pro gram over a broadcast season. This was happening at a time when the CTV network has been requested by the commission to extend network service to new areas in Canada. He said the network is in- volved in a "balancing act that is already a high-wire act with DO net." The .commission has ordered the network to provide 50-per- cent Canadian content in the homeless COLOMBO (AP) Five thou- sand persons have been made homeless in floods caused by monsoon storms in the Ralna- pura district of Ceylon, officials said Wednesday. There was no mention of any deaths. season beginning Oct. 1 and GO per cent beginning Oct. Mr. Chcrcover explained that one reason the network receives less far Canadian programs than U.S. programs is that fewer viewers watch Canadian programs. This means CTV must charge advertisers ICES for Canadian programs than for U.S. pro- grams. Rats big film hit GERMANS FLEE WEST BERLIN Three East Germans slipped unnoticed across the heavily-guarded and fortified East German border into West Berlin Tuesday night, police reported. By DOB THOMAS HOLLYWOOD (AP) Who would have guessed that the big hit of the summer movie season would turn out to be a film about a boy and Ids collection of rats? Possibly nobody except the tw men responsible for bring- ing Willard to the screen: Charks Pratt, president of liing Crosby Productions, and Mort Briskin, who produced the pic- ture. "We thought from the begin- ning that it was going to do says Briskin. "W hat we made was a damned good, entertaining, ex- citing a mes- adds Pratt. Willard, which was filmed for million, already has drawn million at box offices. The two film-makers expect foreign reaction to be even better.

The) came across a slim novel Ratmanos Notebooks by Stephen Gilbert, which had been passed up by all the major stu- dios. "We both loved Briskin says. "We immediately began negotiations to buy it. "We did so in the face of a basic industry no-no. Tradition- ally, rats were never shown on the scieen, for fear that women in the audience would be fright- ened." The producers assigned trainer Moe DiSesso to produce a breed of rat "actors." "Our rats had to be trained from explains Pratt, "by played with as babies, they had no fear of humans and would respond to a few com- mands." The star rat was Ben, who had it easier than his human counterparts. He appeared only in closeups; 14 "backup" rats of the same size and coloring per- formed his stunts. ACTORS GOT ALONG The human actors took well to the rals. Bruce Davidson, who played Willard, walked around the set with two on his shoulder. Ernest Borgnine allowed 200 to crawl over his body. How to keep 500 rats under control on a movie set? Since they cannot climb a slick sur- face, they were penned in by a circle of tin sheet- ing. A head count was made after overy scene. Briskin and Pratt figure one good rat picture deserves an- other, and they'll start shooting a sequel, Ben, in November.

Jeivs appeal to Soviet leaders MOSCOW (AP) More than 900 Soviet Jews, wlw say they speak for members of their families, have signed an open letter to Soviet leaders and the United Nations demanding permission to emigrate to Is- rael. The petition, circulated today to foreign journalists, was be- lieved to be the largest-scale un- dertaking of its kind in the re- cent struggle of Jew's to leave the Soviet Union. The appeal was addressed to Leonid Brezhnev, Communist party general secretary, Pre- mier Alexei Kosygin and Presi- dent Nikolai Podgorny, with a copy addressed to the United Nations General Assembly. The trials of Soviet Jews in the last nine months "only con- firmed the correctness of the path we have taken and in- creased our determination to reach the goal that has been se-t, for in the Soviet Union we are deprived of the opportunity to live and keep ourselves as said the petition. In the Soviet Union, where there "is no Jewish culture of national life, no Jewish school and no Jewish theatre where there is opportunity to study the Jewish language, Hie culture or the history of the Jcwis people, there is no future for us as Jews."

The error occurred when First National City Bank of New York paid twice in the same day for one government security worth S33.3 million. The bank discovered the error 2'.4 months later. It immediately notified the treasury by telegram and the exlra payment was returned. But the bank also asked for, and got, an additional 8 million to use free of charge for months so it could- make up for w hat it could have earned on private loans during the lime the money was missing. The lending rate subse- quently increased giving Na- tional City the chance to make more off the govern- ment's million than it would have made with its own money. National City's error oc- curred March 3 when ils Lon- don office and a New York branch each paid million for an Export Import Bank Series EB promissory note. The error went undetect- ed until May 19. NEW YORK (AP) For 14-year-old Annette Ronella it may be a long six months.

But Annette looked anyway, found three stacks of J20 bills and quickly reported her find to police. Asked why she turned the money in, Annette said. "Well, I'm honest. That's the way I was brought up at home and in church." TRUE FISH STORY MANILTIQUE, Mich. (AP) Mrs. Erwin Winegpart has a li'ue fish story to tell.
