Calcutta! would be broadcast simultane- ously on closed circuit television in three Toronto theatres and in eight other Canadian cities. The controversial show is de- scribed by its creator, Kenneth Tynan, 43, the literary manager of the National Theatre in Brit- ain, as "tasteful pornography for the thinking voyeur." Inspector Wilson of To- ronto's Morality Squad said at the time the Canadian showings were announced that even though the show would be on closed-circuit TV, it falls within the Criminal Code as long as it is open to the public. But any action would have to wait until the police see the program, he said. Prices for the showing in To- ronto ranged from to Flat-Chesled Waitress Complains SYHACUSE, N.Y. (AP) A 20-year-old girl who worked as a cocktail waitress in a special "fox" costume con- tends she was fired because the boss considered her too flat-chested. Mary Chamberlain, 20, of Syracuse, has filed a com- plaint with the state human rights division on the basis of sex discrimination. If there were male waiters involved, she wrote, "I do not believe the chest size" would count. The restaurant makes a practice of employing well-de- V e 1 o p e d young women ss cocktail waitresses and call- ing them "the. little foxes." The girls wear abbreviated, fur-trimmed costumes, with fox-like tails and ears.

The same amount of liquor has more effect on a fat man than on one whose weight is the same but composed largely of muscle, says Dr. Harold Kalant, director of re- search at the Addiction Re- search Foundation here. He says the interim report of the Le Dain commission on the non-medical use of drugs was "quite wrong" in saying a fat man stays sober longer because alcohol temporarily diffuses into fat tissue. In an interview Thursday, Dr. Kalant said alcohol is highly soluble in water, and since the muscular man has more of his weight composed of water the alcohol he drinks is better distributed. In a fat man the alcohol is loss diluted, so he would have a higher blood-alcohol rate and become more intoxicated on the same amount Of alco- hol. Dr. Kalant said he will present a research paper on alcohol distribution in the body Le Bain commis- sion. Southern Alberta Auto Racers In Conjunction with EMERSON MOTORS LTD. 817 4th Ave. S.

By WIUJAM GLOVER STRATFORD, Ont. (AP) The comments range from querulous to quizzical, from qualified assent to quick Visitors to the Stratford Festi- val are quite obviously finding Phase II of the seasoi. J drama display a real change of pace. Which of course is just what the planners intended. And in the process the-noted company has brought off some of the most brilliantly stimulating produc- tions in its career. Man's infinite capacity for discontent runs as a unifying theme through the three iJays recently inserted into the rotat- ing repertory. But in content they are widely separated, ranging from Shakespeare's in- frequently performed Cymbe- line through Arrabefe contem- [rarary The Architect arid the Emperor of Assyria and Arnold Wesker's latest, The Friends. Their contrast, to the three earlier Mer- chant of Venice, The School for Scandal and Hedda the difference between expertly staged unconventionally and accomplished repeat of over-fa- miliar standards In his gamble on neglected Cymbeline, artistic director Jean Gascon has come up with a production that deserves No. 1 spot for inventive magic and popular appeal. He feels the play is the most personally rev- elatory in all of Shakespeare. As one local student observed, the plot contains scraps of just about everything from King Lear ot Titus Andronicus via The Comedy of Errors. Gascon sets it all at a fairy- tale level at marked variance with the way it has been seen by this persistent aislesitter in the past. The performing standouts in- clude Robin Gammcll's clown- ish princeling, Leo Ciceri's per- fumed villaiiy Maureen 0 'B r i e n, whose Imogen of mildly amused bewilderment holds the whole mad adventure in focus. Almost as intricately struc- tured is Spanish author Arra- bel's wild romp through what ho likes to call "theatre panique." There arc only two performers, Roger Blay and Jarnold Sobol- off, but together they snatch at 42 characterizations on a desert island of sandy reeds and plas- PAnAMOUNT THEATRE Saturday, Monday "Woodstock Festival" Last Complete Show is: 15 PARAMOUNT-CINEMA Saturday, Monday "Hello Dolly" Complete Shows COLLEGE MALL CINEMA Saturday "Darling Lili" Last Complete Show Monday "Darling Lili" Last Complete Show GREEN ACRES DRIVE-IN Saturday "Tarzan and Jungle Boy" "Once Upon A Time in The West" One Complete Show Monday "Parent Trap" "Disorderly One Complete Show PARKS AND RECREATION DEPARTMENT CiTY OF LETHBRIDGE Public Swimming instruction SESSION IV CHILDREN'S MORNING CLASSES There are several vacancies remaining In Session IV (Aug. lOth Aug. 21st, 1970) of the Children's Morning Swimming Classes at the Fritz Sick and Lions Swimming Pools.

The Friends, far different in mood, is a transitional drama for Wesker, expressing disillu- sion with the working-class ide- alism and the "sweet-mouted grubbiness" ol youth that has streaked his previous work. Strangely, the play develops with deatchment and even philo- sophical mirth. Although flawed with uncertain discursiveness, the work is his most mature and meatiest. Six Britons who have triumphed over lower-class ori- gins and attained success in swinging London are brought to- gether in a symbolic living room to expose their inner ulti- mate longings and emptiness. One, the leader, is dying, and their desultory, Semitic media- tions turn into a threnody tinged with that ccloplasniic suspense so often employed by Harold Pinter. Among the performers, Kata Reid and Dolores Sutlon are not- able, with Salem Luilwig as an outsider who observes the cen- tral consortium with ironic com- passion. Festival officials regard tho gamut of reactions lo tliis sum- mer's expanded drama series with the calm of men whose predictions of box-office brisk- ness are being reasonably well met. At the Festival Theatre, attendance is a bit above the 80 pel' cent projected in the budget, at the smaller where Arrabel and Wesker arc the 70 per cent anticipation.
