New York visit Though he does not keep fan letters after showing them to his wife, Shirley, Fonda voices particular pleasure over the play's popularity with young spectators Next on the agenda come Boston Detroit, Denver and Los Angeles, until June 16 Then he goes to Pans for a film, and on Aug 12 arrives with Clarence Darrow in Honolulu where the American Bar Association, in convention there has already bought out four performances After that, Spokane Wash and "the windup for this season" in San Francesco It isn't a physically tiring part, comments the star, but I'm aware at every performance I'm talking on tired voice muscles So he's cut out Wednesday matinees and tapered off on such collateral activities as interviews and receptions The show may also be taped for a TV special Fonda is aware that he has sometimes been criticized that a man of such thespian reputation never tackles classic roles "I he answers, "but at a time when ny name didn't mean anything to anybody When you're 20 to 25 you play anything they give you, even girl roles, to keep working and get experience "I'm not asked, and I shouldn't be asked, to play Shakespeare or Restoration comedy classics today, because I'm still Omaha, Nebraska "I know my limits Looking back over the years, Fonda leaves no doubt that his supreme acting thrill was the 1948 night when fie opened in Mr Roberts and "the audience stood on their chairs to cheer He played in the comedy over times "and on the last night it was better than ever before because Director Josh Logan told me it was When he thinks about career turning

Japan has had women out the summer of 1932 when the only job he could get was driving a station wagon for a stock company in Surrey, N H In the middle of the season he was released from chauffeur duties to take over as set designer A touring star saw his work at Surrey and because of her report to the trade the next summer I couldn't get arrested as an actor but I had the pick of every theatre in the oauntry to do settings By ED WALTERS ST JOHN'S, Nfld (CP) It takes the ears and nose as well as the eyes to capture the full character of this ancient Newfoundland capital All three senses are needed properly to absorb the things that give the seaport city of a flavor of its own Historians generally agree that St John's is North Amer- ica's oldest city, although it was never officially founded as a settlement There is a record of the first substantial house being built here 446 years ago, pre- sumably as an improvement over temporary structures erected earlier by English- men fishing out of St John's during the summers But it's not just memories of past centuries that make St John's interesting For events and attitudes current today have their roots in hap- penings of olden times Many On downtown Water Street known as the Lower Path when Sir Humphrey Gilbert took possession of New- foundland for Queen Elizabeth I in 1583 a working knowl edge of Portuguese or Rus- sian is sometimes more useful than an ability to speak both of Canada s two official lan- guages And along Water Street, be- side the mile-long harbor snuggled behind the protec- tion of 300-500-foot hills, is where an old dispute is being renewed Fishing ships of 14 countries use St John's as a year-round supply and repair base for their operations in the north- west Atlantic Newfoundland fishermen descendants of the 16-century English and Irish manners who first came to New- foundland for rod are main- taining a steady outcry against foreign fishing Stocks of cod, flounder and redfish are being depleted The Canadian government plans to ask this summer s Law of the Sea Conference for a 200-mile fishing limit Open to nil Many fishermen s organ- izations and industry spokes men want St John's closed to foreign trawlers But the port remains open to all comers and waterfront businessmen happily sell fuel, food the case of the Portuguese- bait to foreign fishing ships Visitors to the St John's waterfront who strike up a conversation with Portuguese fishermen playing soccer on the pier beside their moored ships often are invited aboard for a glass of wine, or gin with real limes and a meal of cod cooked in one of 100 different ways City residents are aware of their waterfront, little of which is enclosed by fences or gates Whenever a disabled ship is being towed in through the harbor en- a particularly dramatic rescue hundreds of residents will drive to Signal Hill to watch the endangered vessel reach safety Signal Hill, standing 500 feet above the Narrows, is the site where Gughelmo Marconi received the first transatlan- tic wireless transmission in 1901 Marconi here Scientific achievements in St John's didn't end with Marconi Memorial University of Newfoundland on the city's northern outskirts is world headquarters for the study of giant squid Only in Newfoundland have the giant squid been taken Dr Frederick Aldnch, the university s dean of
