Side Story burst upon the Broadway stage. Word from the Washington and Philadel- phia tryouts had been good, with praise comparing the new show to My Fair Lady in heatrical importance. But that the wit and bite of Shaw could be captured for the musical stage seemed much more likely than the timely, t unlikely, subject of juvenile delinquency. Yet in West Side Story, au- thor Arthur Lanrents took a crucial social problem and converted it into moving, ex- citing entertainment. West Side tells of two young lovers, Maria and Tony, trap- ped in the feud between Puerto Ricans and self styled "Am- Their brief story is contained in two days in the history of the Jet and Shark gangs. Brought to life are the brawls, secret meetings, dances, a tender love story and, even more telling flashes of child-like innocence placed in counterpoint to big-city cyn- icism. That first production had a lot going for it, not only the Laurents story which had bor- rowed a bit fiom Romeo and Juliet. There was the music of Leonard Bernstein who had al- ready had a great hit in On the Town. Stephen Sondheim, who was later to have great success with shows like Gypsy, Company and the current Night Music, wrote the lyrics. There was choreography by Jerome Robbing and the cast of relative unknowns threw up such stars as Carol Lawrence, Larry Kert and Chita Rivera. Soon productions were to be mounted from London to Tokyo, every bistro tenor was singing Tonight, a film was planned end the original cast album was selling in the mil- lions. NOW: It was just over three months ago that the local Allied Arts Council agreed to back a Dick Mells' production of the show. There were many reasons for the decision. For the Arts Council this was their fourth foray into the sponsorship of a summer musi- cal. Previous productions were Babes in Arms, Pyjama Game and The Boy Friend. Behind these ventures there was no desire to make money. Indeed, the hope was that the shows would break even. The motive was a fine one; to reach an age group that did not seem to fit into the then offered "summer programs" and give tihem the opportunity to learn theatre arts on the job. Just two examples of the worth of the program; Sheila Pisko, later to be a dazzling My Fair Lady, was brought 1930's sex symbol still going strong LOS ANGELES (AP) Mae West, sex symbol of the 1920s and 1930s, turns 80 today, but she'd rather not talk about it. "I'll wait until I'm she said. Even at the four-score mark, she remains a remark- able figure of a -woman. Tie frame, which in- spired the Mae West life Jacket in the Second World War, seems little changed. Her face is smooth and her hair, still blonde though with a little bit of help, cascades to her shoulders. When she walks, it is with the same jiggling strut that epitomized the sexually liber- ated woman of She Done Him Wrong and I'm No Angel. An interview naturally led to talk of sex, since she was the pio- neer of more permissive en- tertainment. Item: .in 1926 Mae West starred on Broadway as a terfront prostitute in a play she wrote called Sex and was jailed for "indecent perform- ance." Item: In 1933 she mur- mured "C'm up 'n' see me sometime" to Gary Grant in She Done Him Wrong and precipitated a wholesale revi- sion of the film industry's censorship code. Item: In i937 she appeared in an Adam and Eve comedy skit on the Edgar Bergen- Charlie McCarthy radio show and created such a furore that she was banned from ra- dio for 12 years. The interviewer wonders if this soft-voiced woman of 80 could have aroused such a clamor. The answer is yes. She continues to sprout such THE EL RANCHO MOTOR HOTEL in the AZTEC LOUNGE SONG STYLINGS by 'INEZ7 CABARET "KATHY and the KOOL-AID THURSDAY, FRIDAY and SATURDAY comments as: "Sex Is like a small business; you gotta watch over it." She recently finished writ- ing a new book called Sex Drive. She describes it as a study of "sex health and ESP." Perhaps surprisingly, Miss West deplores the current film trend toward sex and nudity. "I don't approve of it, it's just not ehe declared. "I can see what's happening. The picture makers have run out of titles; that's why you get all those long titles nowa- days. They've also run out of plots; everything has been done on the screen already. "Now they had no stories, so they simply throw naked bodies at the audience. And showing the sex act' I think that's terrible. "When I was making pic- tures, I couldn't even say 'heE' or 'damn' on the screen.

Likewise Brian Walker, an al- most unwilling draftee, sought further instruction in drama and this year brought in his production of Babes in Arms with his pupils at Gil- bert Paterson School. THE BUG: It bit not only these earlier participants but has through high school pro- ductions and Lethbridge Youth Theatre created an itch in the young to learn that tihey will not have denied. For many of those involved, ttiis summer of '73 will become one they will remember, a joy- ful experience that may pay no further dividends other than that they wil become avid and discriminating theatregoers. For a few it may indeed mean their realization that their vision should extend to the horizon of their being. THE TEAM: And West Side Story has a great one. The work of Dick Mells for Leth- bridge Musical Theatre, Play- goers and Arts Council is jus- tifiably admired. What has de- lighted the rehearsal observer is to watch the director doing his job with an obvious plea- sure in the young people. Muriel Jolliffe has taken on a job that almost stymied Jerome Bobbins, In the origi- nal production the dances were so strenuous that the many in- juries required a doctor to be placed on staff. Alternately bullying and cajoling, Mrs. Jolliffe has taken her dancers through the tough acrobatic dances safely. Not only that but she has taken the untrain- ed and unlikely and made them dancers. In Ellyn Mells, musi- cal director, the local theatre has one of its greatest assets. A first class musician, she has overlaid her talent with in- finite patience and good humor to which the cast responds by trying to give her the great "sound" she wants. REHEARSALS: Watching a production grow is, for an old stager, a fascinating experi- ence. Watching West Side Story from its first casting call is to see something develop that has eye appeal, heart appeal and sense appeal. A place was found for all the hopefuls; if not on stage, up in the lighting booth, creating sets and costumes, painting flats, rummaging for props, in front-of-house operation. This is an experiment that has a place for everyone and that includes the adult advisers. In that first production of 1957 the cast ranged from 16 to 23. This is the same age spread you'll see on stage here. Watching them creates not just the desire to be young again, but to once more be al the beginning of things. CURTAIN: Going up Tues day at the Yates. All that ef- fort from everyone involved in West Side Story, the job tha the Arts Council is trying to do deserves an audience. Will you be there? Let me share with you one personal memory of this pro- duction. An evening a week ago the kids had just run through the Dance in the Gym and tumbled noisily into the auditorium seats. Linda John son and Wendy Burrows joined Ellyn Mells at the piano to re- hearse A Boy Like That and I Had a Love. The first, sung by Anita, 5s a grating taunt. The kids startec to as Maria soar- ed into the reply a quietness went over the theatre. Thai hushed attention was one o: the most magic moments have ever experienced in a theatre. Will it be there for you in the five-day run next week? One never knows. Let's hope you find it. But for all the vi- tality and joy in the rehearsals, and for that moment, I thank West Side Story.

The informant said a delega- tion of Canadian negotiators !rom Ottawa "will not be com- ing as scheduled" and that he did not know when they might reschedule the talks. He said he did not know where this left the status of the negotiations. The delegation was to have been led by Michel Dupuis, un- dersecretary of state for ex- ternal affairs. An official of the air division of the U.S. state department said: "We have to complete our studies before the talks can go ahead." A spokesman for the Civil Aeronautics Board said "the C.A.B. has to look at the full package" of agreement reached so far by the negotiating teams and that "the C.A.B. dis- cussions are continuing." He said key C.A.B. personnel had been on leave, causing de- lay in the C.A.B. deliberations.
