The O'Keefe Centre has done a good job of bringing the world of entertainment to Toronto, he said. The city will eventually have to get an opera house which will rob the theatre of its two biggest National Ballet and the Canadian Opera Com- Mr. Walker added that there will still be room for the centre. His only advice to his successor is to keep calm. REPORTS NET INCOME TORONTO (CP) Cadillac-Fairview Corp. Ltd. reports net income for the six months ended Aug. 31 was or 22.7 cents a share.
