I was born in the heart of the Mississippi delta, core of the cotton country. I'm not from the gliettoes, but poverty- wow, wow, wow. Living the way I lived, the blues was my Life. I couldn't have done any- thing else. It's my soul." The words belong to B. B. King, the king of the blues, who, at 44, is finally achieving recognition. He paid his dues on the "c h i 11i n working black clubs and juke joints where there was only a slightly better-than-even chance he'd get paid. Three years 'ago at the Fillmore East in New York, B. B. got his first standing ovation. He cried. "Just being a blues singer was hard. People thought they were all i 11 i t e r a t e. They wouldn't Listen, and since I didn't have school past the 10th grade, I didn't feel too confident of myself. "I'm still a country boy, a little scared of people who can make you feel bad. It's like since I was a little boy going to bed with no lights, 'cause there was no electricity. L've been afraid of the dark." Born Riley B. King in Indi- anola, Miss., B. B. spent his boyhood working as a hired hand for a white tenant fanner for a month. BOSS BOUGHT GUITAR He chopped cotton and drove a tractor on a delta plantation. His uncle, a minis- ter, taught him to play the guitar his boss paid for. During the Second World War he was drafted, then de- ferred to continue working in the fields. Only this time he Stalled Art Centre Opens At Long Last REGINA (CP) Just three years and 54 days after Can ada's 100th birthday, Regina' centennial project, the Saskat chewan Centre of the Arts, wa officially opened this week. The centre, conceived in 196 >ut stalled for so long after metal frame was erected tha t became known locally a "the monkey was a-glit er for the occasion. A formally attired crow< llled most of the rec plush seats in the main litorium for the long-awaitec ormal opening by Governor General Roland llichener. CAUSED HEARTACHES Premier Ross Thatcher whose government in 1967 took ver the project after the city an out of funds, said the million structure had causec :tremendous heartache." But, he said, "most of us are ure that it was worth it am We hope that in. its second yeai f operation, it will be self-sup- TOrting." The centre has big onvention facilities. Former Prime Minister John Jiefenbaker was a platform guest as chancellor of the Uni- ersity of Saskatchewan. The centre, with a ontribution from the federal overnment, originally was to ave cost about Bui he figure climbed and climbec i deadlines faded.

Hie document follows reform f the Roman Catholic calendar 3st year, when pope Paul pro- okcd an outcry in many coun- jies by removing sonie 200 aints from universal venera- on. It says that from now on a na- on, region, diocese, place, reli- ious family or association shall e allowed only one patron aint.

The document also aims to xjlish rhetoric and long- inded eulogies from prayers in onor of individual saints. was getting the equivalent of army pay. "I'd take the extra money and buy a bus ticket for as far as it would take me and play the blues on street corners, making more on a weekend than I could all week." His first paying job after the war was at the 16th Street Grill in Memphis, Term., for a night, five nights a week, plus room and board. B. B. picked up a 10-minute spot on WDIA, the first Ne- gro-manned radio station in the city, but there was no sal- a chance to adver- tise what he was playing. He cut his first record on RPM in 1949 and the following year he was No. 1 on the rhythm and blues charts across the country. Then came rock 'n' roll and Top 40 radio and no one wanted to hear that "low down" blues music. In the late '60s and early '60s, B. B. criss-crossed Louisiana, Mis- sissippi, Georgia and the Car- olinas; he did 342 one-nighters in 1956 alone. ASHAMED OF BLUES "Many times, I was ashamed to say I was a blues singer. For the last 10 or 15 years, if you didn't play rock or jazz, you weren't in it. "It wasn't just a races thing. Middle-class blacks wanted to be with it, too. Tha way some people in my field present the blues, black peo- ple think that all blues singers get drunk on Saturday, beat their wives on Sunday and go back to work on Monday." He worked with promoters who had saved up all their money to put on one big dance. If it rained or few peo- ple bothered to show up, B. B. didn't get paid.

"You think things are get- ting better and you think you know how to get along. Never had anything like that happen before. Oh man, that hurt so bad. "And they tease me when I stag the blues.
