Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 2, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta THE LETHBRIOQE HERALD Monday, 2, Churchill: Britons pondering exactly what he meant to them Record crowds attend Banff Festival of Arts LONDON (AP) His birth was turbulent, his life more turbulent still. Now, 100 years since Winston Churchill came bawling into the world, the British are pondering just what he meant to them. It was on Nov. that Lady Randolph Churchill came in from the hunting field to deliver her first-born son a little ahead of schedule. Perhaps the place was significant. Churchill was born in a ground-floor room of Blenheim Palace, which Queen Anne built for Churchill's ancestor, the first Duke Of Marlborough, as a reward for his victories in Eu- ropean wars. It was Churchill's inspired Second World War leadership that brought him lasting fame. Until the war, he was often widely unpopular with those who later hailed him as a savior. And once the war was won, the British removed him. The election of July 1945, which by all the portents should have been the reward to crown Churchill's wartime triumphs, turned instead into a landslide for Clement Attlee's Labor Party. Churchill then was 70 and by most men's standards ripe for retirement. Yet he stayed on to fight again and in 1951 at the age of 76 was restored as prime minister. He set his Conser- vative Party on the path to 13 years of unbroken rule, and the nation on the march to ex- pansion and prosperity. Both party and prosperity are to- day in disarray. He stepped down from the premiership in 1955 at age 80. He died less than 10 years January left detailed instructions for a funeral the likes of which this nation seldom sees. The very funeral procession was a celebration of his life. The lying-in-state in West- minster Hall, the heart of the Parliament that was his stage the bands and soldiery re- calling his martial youth the slow march to St. Paul's along Fleet Street passed the newspapers for which he sometimes worked as a young man... then by boat and rail to a country church yard in sight of the magnificent mansion in which he was born. This being centennial year, the younger generation has a chance for a close-up view of giant of their his- tory books. At Somerset House, a London mansion on the same gigantic scale as Blenheim, the "fine rooms" have been opened for the biggest display of Churchilliana ever assembled. The first complete collected edition of his writings is on sale at for 34 calf-bound volumes. Competent critics rank Churchill with the greatest of Britain's the insider's advantage that he personally formed events which he recorded. At Blenheim, the current Duke of Marlborough has staged a similar exhibition of Churchilliana, much of it from his own archives. Longleat, stately home of the Marquis of Bath, is dis- playing the celebrated siren suits which Churchill wore during the Nazi blitz and the keys of the South African jail from which Churchill escaped during the Boer War. Churchill's jaw juts out of centenary stamps issued by the post office. New statues stand in Parliament Square and on the green at Westerham, the Kentish market town close to Churchill's country home Chartwell. One Churchill trophy is not on Graham Sutherland portrait whitfh both houses of Parliament presented to him to mark his 80th birthday. At the un- veiling, it was acclaimed as a all except the subject who consigned Ifee painting to the cellar. How does the young gener- ation, collecting the centenary stamps, visiting the ef- hibitions, working on Churchill projects in their history classes, assess his legacy? "A lot of words, the 'V sign- and no was the verdict of one girl. A major movie, .Young Winston' portraying Churchill as a youthful man of action, has failed to arouse much interest among the under 30s. Historians are beginning to question some of Churchill's wartime policies, most notably the blanket bombing of parts of Germany, and the failure to assert himself against the division of Europe by Stalin and Roosevelt.

(CP) Al- most people, an in- crease of more than 20 per cent from last year, attended this year's Banff Festival of the Arts, the Banff Centre school of fine arts reports. Dates for the 1975 festival have been set for Aug. 7-23, and while specific programs have not been announced, they are expected to follow the usual mixture of opera, ballet, drama, concerts, musical theatre and displays of visual arts. A survey of audiences at the 1974 festival indicated that 30 to 40 per cent of those at- tending "never" attended op- era or ballet at home, al- though they turned out in good numbers at performances on summer evenings here in the this mountain resort. And the survey showed they found the performances sur- prisingly good. They were asked to rate the shows "ex- or "dis- appointing" and 65 to 82 per cent of them called the shows with Fiddler on the Roof taking top marks. The fine-arts school, found- ed in 1933 as a summer drama school, has grown into what amounts to a graduate school for young professional per- formers on the threshhold of their careers.The school has long since outgrown its initial popular reputation as a summer camp for dilettante rich men's sons and daugh- ters. Major performances this year included productions of Mozart's opera, Marriage of Figaro, and James Reaney's play, Sticks and Stones; Part I, based on the notorious Lu- can, Ont., murders of the 1880s. The centre this year also formed the Canadian Chamber Orchestra, which was rated "excellent" by 75 per cent of its audience. However, the centre contin- ues to struggle with financial difficulties. As a provincial government institution associ- ated with University of Al- berta, it does not qualify for federal government grants from the Canada Council, though many of its students win Canada Council assist- ance.
