Evening Citizen Staff Writer The National Film Board, Canada's model agency of documentary films is going to have a birthday on Monday, May 2. The NFB, born in those turbulent days leading up to World War II, will be 10 years old. . , The uncertain stripling of 1939 has grown into a lusty fellow with a robust reputation spreadlna; across the face of the earth. In 10 short years, the NFB has- ; become recognized as the "sharpest" film producing unit of its kind in the world, a model which has been studied by the governments of many nations. Explains Job Its Job is a job of interpretation. Film Commissioner Ross McLean puts it this way: - f'Our - job " is to interpret the people of Canada to themselves ,and each other in Canada, and the, Canadian way of life to the world as a whole." i McLean has no qualms about the future. The film board is here tq stay. "The last thing we'll run out of will be ideas," he says. "In a country so varied and vast as Canada, there is a great job to be done in strengthening the common Interest of the people." The role to be played by the Film Board grows with the country. Television will have its part in its future, too. "As television develops, the opportunity for bringing films to the nation will be increased by that much," says Mr. McLean. In February this year, 50 NFB films were televised in the United States. Hundreds of NFB ' productions go ' out over United Kingdom TV sets every year. This Film Board, which now reaches out to nearly 60 nations every year, had its beginning back in 1936 when Mr. McLean, then secretary tc Vincent Massey, Canada's High Commissioner in London, prepared a report on Canadian film production for his boss. A survey of Britain's GPO film unit followed closely on the heels of the Canadian report. Subsequent discussions led to the formation in Canada of .the NFB. Brilliant Director The board's first commissioner was John Grierson, brilliant director of the GPO unit. He was invited to Canada by the Department of Trade and Commerce where he prepared a' report which became the basis 'for the National Film Act of 1939. Mr. McLean, a Manitoba-born Canadian, joined the noard about two weeks after Grierson had set the wheels in motion. He was appointed acting commissioner in October, 1945, when Grierson went back to England to become controller of the film division of the Central Office of Information. In January, 1947, Ross McLean be came formal commissioner of the NFB. - v. ' "'"' - What has the film board done for Canada and Canadians these past 10 years? The question is a difficult one to answer in one short article. However here is a very quick look into the workings of thks , vast organization which stretches across a continent from sea to sea. Actually, it was to meet war time demands that Canada deve- For Active Women Thelma's Washetcrias GLEBE 871 Bank Tel. 5-8131 WEST END 1004 Wellington Tel. 8-8381J Bundle Your Laundry and Come "Workless Washdays" BlackwelVs Weekly Special ANY Children's n n Snow Suit 49 c ANY Prapcs.Dsi;i95c CLEANED & TRESSED 13 Stores to Serve You . choose we turn iou want to pay: We're never too busy for courtesy and service. 112 SPARKS ST.

' Keeps Canada Known And the NFB keeps Canada constantly before the eyes of the world. Reaching out to nearly 60 countries, in a variety of languages, s film board productions maintain a connection with Canada in lands where restrictions have lessened trade; in places where culture and industry are laggard, Canadian ideas projected through NFB productions, lend pace and volume to growth.

Bethel Pentecostal Tabernacle The Twentieth Century Church With the First Century Message 379 Waverley Street (3 doors TlS The Evening citizen OllaivciJ jlamilij lfewSpaper The board has produced its films in Dutch, Chinese, Danish, Italian, German. Portugese, Spanish, Swedish and Ukrainian versions of the original French and English language films. NFB has its own offices in London, New York, Chicago and Mexico City. Egyptians, Turks and Australians are top NFB fans. In short, the National Film Board is bringing Canada to the world. Not the least important part of NFB work is that which comes under the head "Community Film Services in Canada." During the war, the documentary motion picture was -enlisted to make clear the "mobilization of ideas." Price control and rationing, wage control, the fixing of rents and the freeezing of labor all found explanation in films shown on small screens in factories, ' trade union halls and the country school houses where farmers gathered. 200 Councils Film Commissioner McLean has continued and developed this pattern of production and distribution begun in 1939. Today there are more than 200 community film councils in Canada and 157 rural non-theatrical film circuits. Distribution operates as far north as the Mackenzie river and the Arctic,- as far west as Vancouver Island and east to the Magdalen Islands in the lonely reaches of the Atlantic. Through films, Canada's communities are expanding their view of themselves and thereby their interest in the world. Because of the films, the communities have caught the significance of a richer, broader experience. Happy Birthday, NFB!

' ' ft m east of Bank) Rev. usiness of j"WO WEEKS ago, The Evening Citizen began publishing, on Saturdays, a series of three articles under the general heading of "This Business of Living" by Russell McGillivray. Public reaction tc these articles has been so enthusiastic that arrangements have been completed to extend the series indefinitely. Don't miss these thought-provoking articles every Saturday in Speculate Over Events In Bulgaria LONDON Western diplomats yesterday made a new study of Russia's relations with her Balkan satellites in the light of the announcement that Bulgarian Fi-emlcr Georgi Dimltrov Is visiting Russia. There were three conflicting lines of speculation: Has Dimitrov actually given up control over Bulgaria? Has he. as the Communists say, gone to Russia for medical treatment? Or have the Kremlin rulers of the Communist world called him on the carpet, possibly to explain how it was possible for nationalistic tendencies to develop in Bulgaria? There were scraps of evidence tending to support all three theories.' Informed circles in Sofia derided speculation abroad that Dimitrov may have retired either as premier or as head of the Bulgarian Communist party. The health angle speculation runs like this: .Dimitrov, 66 and a veteran of rough and tumble Communist battles of the last four decades, is understood to have been in poor health for some time. Western newspaper men admitted to Sofia last month to cover the spy trial of 15 Protestant pastors learned that Dimitrov has heart trouble and tuberculosis of the skin. The announcement of the Bulgarian Communist central committee Thursday said that Dimitrov had been given "home leave" and had gone to the Soviet Union for medical treatment. Although he is a Bulgarian by birth, the term "home leave" is not far-fetched in this case. Dimitrov was granted Russian citizenship in 1934 after he was released by the Germans whom he had defied in the famous Reichstag fire trial. AW YE Kenneth Haystead, Pastor Living" Giii 1 l' -1 r T.
