Everything seemed to be favorable A distinguished magician, Mark Wilson, was hosting a dinner party in the Houdini Room of the Magic Castle All the guests were men and women who were receptive And there was a medium, Sandy Spillman, who was an old hand with dead bodies, so to speak. The Houdini Room houses what the Magic Castle call the greatest collection of Houdmiana pairs of his handcuffs, a straitjacket he once wriggled out of, chains he unchained, posters, letters, everything. And, to make the entire evening more conducive to things spiritual, it was Hallowe'en. Not only were there spirits abroad naturally, but Hallowe'en was, Wilson said, the anniversary of Houdim's death. When he died in 1926 he had promised his wife, Beatrice, that he would try to return Every year, for 10 years, she had held a seance on Oct 31 No luck So she had abandoned her annual spiritual in- vitations. Now Wilson was reviving the attempt He assembled his guests, and, while the spirits warmed up, everyone had food and drink and watched a few card tricks. Then Spillman, the traditional 13th guest, arrived. Tall, white haired, distinguished looking, he ex- plained the ground rules of the seance He made no promises. He would try, via the spirit of a Houdini friend, a certain Dr Saint, to get the old gentleman to return It was all in the spirit of tun, he said Before he began, he pointed out some of the more interesting examples of Houdmiana around the room. The framed pair of locked handcuffs the great one used The old, broken music box he had once given Beatrice. The tambourine, broken beyond repair, he had used in a seance once himself. The lights dimmed. Spillman called for Dr. Saint to show himself. A candle flickered. A breeze breezed A glass on the sideboard crashed The old, broken music box tinkled a merry tune The tambourine, broken beyond repair, jangled a few beats And then, in front of our very eyes, was the very face of Houdini, as though carved out of smoke As a light flashed from somewhere, the face revolved and, standing behind the scared 13, briefly there was another figure Dr Saint9 No words were exchanged with the visitors The medium made no claims. All I know is that there was something there and that when the lights came on again, the framed pair of lock- ed handcuffs were unlocked POPULATION ONLY 8 Salt Island, one of the British Virgin Islands, has a population of eight New season The 1975 season of the Canadian Opera Comp- any will highlight a revival of a modern Canadian work, Louis Riel, Herman Teiger-Torel, general manager of the company .has announced.

HOSACK Certified Denim Mechanic DIETRICH DENTURE CLINIC 8-304 5th St. S. Ph. 327-7244 Lethbridge OTTAWA (CP) A com- promise appears likely in hard fought negotiations between the CBC and the Canadian Radio Television Commis- sion (CRTC) on the latter's demand that CBC-TV cut down commercials, a CBC source said here. The CRTC, which regulates all broadcasting in the country, renewed the CBC's licences for five years last spring on condition that the state owned system cut out radio commercials next Jan 1, and reduce TV commer- cials by half by late 1978 The CBC objected, saying it must have commercial revenues or some other new source of funds The source said CBC and CRTC board members met Monday in Montreal for what was thought by some par- ticipants to be the crucial meeting in a series that has been going on since last Easter The source said that while the meeting did not resolve the issue, further discussions are to be held. This indicated that a compromise is in sight The CBC took the position last March that it is put in an impossible situation when one arm of the government the CRTC tries to deny it com- mercial revenue while another arm, the federal treasury board, severely limits its government grants CBC revenue from radio commercials now are negligi- ble in the corporation's budget. Television commer- cials bring in about million a year, but to cut them out would cost million since the time consumed in broad- casting commercials would Voting eased KEGINA capped persons would have an easier time voting in provincial elections under a government bill introduced in the legislature. The bill enables qualified voters who cannot go to the polls because of physical in- capacity to have a ballot mail- ed or delivered have to be filled with longer programs. The CBC now broadcasts about 10 minutes of commer- cials every hour on TV. The CRTC asked it to cut this to eight minutes next October, and progressively by a further minute an hour each year un- til .ate 1978 paramount TONIGHT 4 THURS.
