Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 12, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta RACE AGAINST NATURE Leslie Ryckman, 19, of Whitevale, near Markham, Ont., is in a desperate race against nature. He has three more months to train a red- tailed hawk he has had as a pet before the bird's instinct to migrate becomes stronger than his love for the youth. Normally hawks migrate to Mexico in the fall and seldom return to the same territory. Leslie hopes to keep the bird for two or three years. The Music Box Jazz Performers Can Be Fickle MONTREAL (CP) Jazz constantly refines and rege- nerates itself. Its very roots mirror turmoil and change. But performers can be fic- kle. They do not, if they are sincere, consider themselves panderers to public taste. Nor are they content to reach a plateau and rest on it. Driven by' tlie relentless urgings of their personalities, their craving for a more per- fect form, they explore. Electronic keyboards are what's happening on the latest rash of jazz albums brought into a market bulging at the seams. Often, though they are inter- esting musical studies as a whole, the presence of gadge- try seems to dilute the integ- rity of the key musician or musicians in each group. Miles Davis's new double album, Bitches Brew, is a case in point. Billed implicity as an odys- doesn't say so but the cover art, protean symbols and advertisements for the album leave no doesn't fail but it confuses and, for some, disappoints. Why, Edgar Jones asks, "does America's !best jazz trumpeter have to play around with all this electronic Edgar, a gruff Yorkshire- man who runs Montreal's main record-lending library, remembers with love and nos- talgia such performances as Walking, the GUI Evans ses- sion, the Carnegie Hall per- formance and Milestones records which made Davis "one of the few jazz artists I could take seriously." A lover of classical music Jones formerly produced a classical program on radio and occasionally rock "if it's imaginative and well thought he is a kind of legend to the hundreds who rent from him first before they decide to buy. He rarely sells new records but instead rents a massive .inventory of classical, jazz, traditional jazz, blues, folk and some rock records to members for a fixed weekly charge. His advice is respected by members who spend after- noons browsing through the collection. Edgar doesn't like Bitches Brew because it whistles and screeches like a foggy night on the Staten Island ferry, and that's not what put Miles Davis where he is today. He rarely soloes on this album, preferring to leave the action to a platoon of sound engi- neers and endless keyboard consoles. Davis cut Ms teeth as a sideman with some of the jazz world's best-known perform- ers. They included Gil Evans and the late John Coltrane. His clean, sharp trumpet playing sounded through Olson Rejects Bid To Delay Meeting EDMONTON ture Minister H. A.

"I would resist delaying the conference called for Nov. 23- Mr. Olson said in an inter- view after a meeting with Pre- mier Harry Strom. He said he believed the most useful discussions on the fed- eral report can be obtained with farmers and farming or- ganizations and their leaders after the November meeting. "It is essential we draw at- tention to what present policies and programs have to be changed to accommodate task force recommendations.

Festival Theatre Plans Unveiled TORONTO (CP) The firs plans for the new million Shaw Festival threatre at Niag ara-on-the-Lake, Ont., were re- vealed here by architect Ron J. Thorn. The 832-seat theatre is ex pected to open in 1972, the lot] anniversary of the annual festi val. Construction is to begin this winter on a site immediately be- hind the old town hall where Its festival currently stages its major productions. The new theatre was de scribed in a festival release as "contemporary i n structure with considerable use made o natural materials." Mr. Thorn, a native of Pentic ton, B.C., who designed Toron to's Massey College, said that in planning the theatre "the needs of two sets of people were consi- who make theatre and those who attend."

Phone 327-3958 "WE HAVE THE CLOTHES YOU NEED-FOR THE LIFE YOU LEADI" Paxton Whitehead, the festi val's artistic director, said: "It is hard to know who wil be most pleased at the prospec of the completion of a new thea tre for Shaw pub lie who wiH no longer need tc sit huddled together on wooden chairs, inadequately cushioned or the technical staff who wil have more scope for their an nual achievement of the impos sible." Mr. Whitehead added that the new threatre will give the festi val the facilities for performing in repertoire "should we so de- sire." The festival would still use the present Court House Thea- tre facilities after the new thea- tre opens. Niagara-on-the-Lake Is 10 miles north of Niagara Falls. Create Mountain On The Bald Prairies SASKATOON (CP) Some say faith can move mountains, and it has. Pessimists doubted the pos- sibility of a mountain in the middle of the Prairies, but re- cently the final load of earth was placed atop a 300-foot high ski slope created for the 1971 Canada Winter Games. The mountain is about 25 miles south of here. It will take another 10 to 14 days for contractors to finish grading the slopes, Earle Bow- man, general manager of the Canada Winter Games -said here. Other construction yet to be completed includes landscap- ing, the T-bar lift and water and air lines for snow-making. Dutch Princess To Open CNE AMSTERDAM (Jleuters) Princes Margi-iet, 27, third daughter of Queen Juliana of The Netherlands, left, here by air Tuesday for a three-week visit to the South American country of Surinam and Canada.

Bitches Brew keeps Miles out of anil treads warily into a musical swampland de- riving from John Cage, the Mothers of Invention and three or four types of rock music. On this album Miles experi- ments, composes and ar- ranges but, with one excep- tion, a more traditional ballad arrangement, he never really plays that silver horn. Chaos is evident but it is not always intentional. Ralph J. Gleason, an Amer- ican jazz critic, says in the al- bum's liner notes: "Electronic music Is the music of this culture and in the breaking away (not the breaking down) from pre- viously assumed forms a new kind of music is emerging. The whole society is like that." Is it? Do enduring works of art actually emerge during periods of turmoil, or after they have- passed? -Wednesday, August 15, 1970 THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD 7 Strategic Arms Talks To Continue VIENNA (Reuters) -Soviet and United States negotiators in the strategic arms limitation talks met for one hour in the So- viet Embassy Tuesday, but emerged without confirming that Friday will be the end of the Vienna round of the talks. Austrian government officials had been preparing for a final ceremonial meeting Friday in V i e n n a's Belvedere Palace, when Austrian Foreign Minister Rudolf Kirschlaeger is slated to speak. Conference sources gave no explanation Tuesday for the ap- parent postponement of a final date. However, Friday's SALT meeting will open at a.m. instead of the customary 11 a.m. This was assumed to indi- cate that both sides want to leave room open for a final cer- emonial session if possible. Observers speculated the delay was being caused by need for approval from both govern- ments of a final communique, scheduled to be signed at the final formal session. Apart from .announcing the date of SALT'S resumption in Helsinki, Finland, this fall, the communique is expected to indi- cate areas of agreement al- ready reached in the attempt to curb the missile race. The atmosphere here has been free from outside political interference, and both side have slowly moved towar agreement on an understands to curb land- and sea-based m clear missiles as well bomber fleets.
