Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 17, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta LETHBRIDGE HERALO-Wtdnwdiy, April 17.1974 Stresses need for 'dream time' Ballet choreographer busy man OTTAWA (CP) Take a New England tale of puritan colonial days and a famous piece of Russian ritualistic music. Hire an American stage set designer and a costume designer from French Canada. Catch a ballet choreographer in his rounds among Montreal, New York, Paris and Stockholm, and have him mix them all together with 32 dancers from New York's Harkness Ballet. You have a case of inter- nationalism in the arts. Brian Macdonald, the Mon- treal-born choreographer who provided the recipe for the mix, arrived in New York from Paris Sunday to oversee final rehearsals of his new ballet, The Lottery, which opens there Tuesday night and runs for the balance of the week. Then he flies back to Paris to resume work on Variations on a Simple Theme, a new 40- minute ballet for the Paris Opera, which is to open April 26. Soon after that, he and his wife, Annette av is dancing in Stockholm next week in Tchaikovsky's Swan will fly back to Canada for spring and summer work with Les Grands Ballets Canadiens in Montreal. Reached between rehearsals in New York, Macdonald said he also has been asked to do another ballet for a French company, but current activity has left him breathless. "You need dream time in this he said. "You need time to dream and not be pushed." For the Harkness Ballet, one of the leading dance SPRING Clean-Up Campaign April 15th-20th Chinook Ltd. will now accept national toft drink bottles.

The story is of a New Eng- land community which annually meets to pick out a malfaclor to be stoned to death. While the music is distinctively Russian, he said that in the American setting it takes to impressions of early New England hymn tunes. Scenery is by American set designer Robert Mitchell, and the costumes are by Francois Barbeau of Montreal, who has designed works for both the Grands Ballets and, this year, for the Stratford Festival. Macdonald conceived The Lottery last spring, before coming here to stage last summer's ballet, Star Cross'd, based on Shakespeare's Romeo and Ju- liet. Company troubles meant that the premiere of The tottery had to be postponed to this spring. Threat over FARGO, N.D. (AP) The crest of the Red River was moving downstream today. The U.S. national weather service said the Red River fell below flood stage at Fargo and most tributaries to the Red River south of Fargo have crested. River levels will continue to fall for the next few days except on streams with controlled flow, the weather service said. _____ OVER ZOO STORES COAST TO COAST IN CANADA SUPER COLOUR SPECIAL UHF-VHF-FM ANTENNA STRONG LIGHTWEIGHT GUARANTEED 80" square boom model gives you increased picture power for colour or black-and-white And if you own a stereo, you'll experience sound separation never thought possible from far away FM stations.

(AP) The Columbia Broadcasting System and two other defend- ants were ordered Monday to pay all profits from the Have Gun, Will Travel television series to a former rodeo rider who says he created the character of Paladin. Magistrate Jacob Hagopian issued the ruling in a federal court suit brought by Victor DeCosta of North Scituate, R.I., against the Columbia Broadcasting System Inc., CBS Films Inc. and Capital Cities Broadcasting Inc. DeCosta, who retired from rodeos after he was thrown from a horse in 1953, now works as a heavy equipment mechanic for the state of Rhode Island. DeCosta's lawyer, Alan Dworkin, said the judgment will involve millions of dollars, but he will not elaborate. Dworkin said that the series had grossed million by 1966. Knight Edwards, a lawyer representing CBS, said an ap- peal was planned. DeCosta claimed he created Paladin in 1948 when he worked rodeos and horse shows dressed in a black cowboy outfit and black hat. DeCosta said in his rodeo career, he had passed out a quarter million cards reading, "Have Gun Will Travel. Hire Paladin." The cards bore a symbol of a chess piece, a knight. The television series began in 1957. Hagopian ruled CBS was guilty of infringing on De- Costa's service mark, the call- ing card, and unfair com- petition. Hagopian said CBS is "required to hand over the proceeds of their wrong to the plaintiff by reason of their un- just enrichment." Novel on Underground Man future TV movie LOS ANGELES (AP) A drizzling rain fell across Ben- edict Canyon and wrapped a misty shroud around the bar- onial home cleaved to a ver- dant hillside. It was the kind of setting where you would expect to find Lew Archer, author Ross Macdonald's hero of 18 detec- tiv novels that delve into the darker side ot the California lifestyle. For the TV movie being filmed here, The Underground Man, from Macdonald's most successful book, the locale was the fictional home of Stanley Broadhurst, a charac- ter in the book and movie. In- side, Peter Graves was por- traying private eye Lew Archer. Macdonald, a straw hat on his head, a wry smile on his face, sat under a drippy patio roof. He and his wife, mys- tery writer Margaret Millar, had driven down from their home in Santa Barbara to ob- serve the filming. At home, Macdonald is better known by his real name, Kenneth Mil- lar. Both grew up in Kitch- ener, Ont, where Mrs. Millar was born. "This is my first close-up encounter with the said Macdonald, who had an earlier Archer book filmed in 1966 as Harper with Paul Newman. "It's much more pleasant and exciting than I thought it would be." Archer evolves from the hard-boiled detective tradition of Raymond Chandler and Dashiell Hammett. His name, in fact, is taken from Sam Spade's murdered partner in Hammett's The Maltese Fal- con. Macdonald said: "Archer's more aware of contemporary problems. He's somewhat less hard-boiled, more of a hu- manitarian. He's a man of ac- tion but he's also a man of thought. He's not in the mach- ismo tradition. His primary concern is not proving himself but helping people solve their problems." He said he was pleased that Paramount Pictures had picked The Underground Man as a pilot movie for a possible series on NBC, "It's among my best he said. "It's not as dark as some of the others." Mrs. Millar laughed and said: "Ken always says he's going to write a short, cheer- ful book and they're never short and cheerful." Macdonald said: "I was pleasantly surprised by the script. They managed to boil down a complex book into a simpler story without losing the essence of it." 1OO years ago We did it in Liberia this year do something with us!
