Moves to implement tie order came here when a judge in Chi- cago ruled that Lang must be returned to the city from the state mental institution. Illinois law stales a defendant must be abta to understand the charges against him and be able to cooperate with his law- yer. The high court said hospital officials felt Lang is of normal intelligence and is therefore en- titled to a trial if a lawyer be- lieves he can defend Lang. Lang's lawyer, Lowell J. Myers, says he does not think he can communicate with his client. Lang was accused after Er- nestine Williams, 38, a neighbor, was found stabbed to death in 19G6 soon after witnesses said they saw her with Lang.

Get out cf life Tales tho family fo a about items on literature an modern writers? The answer is that TV is glu ted with popular forms of tti arts to the virtual exclusion the more serious. The closest program to study on art that I can reca was Dr. Kenneth Clark's BB produced Civilisation serie The CBC's own Music to Sc shunted into an inoffensive tim on Sunday afternoons, has sli ped art works in as a bac ground to classical music. The Telescope show last wee on Canadian writer Farley Me wat might be seen as pushu: literature, but ttien when Mi wat gets on the screen, it's usi ally himself, not his work which comes through. The last ballet was the Roya Winnipeg Ballet's Ballet High made more palatable to the pub lie taste by being set to roc music by Lighthouse. As for heavy drama, Festiva has been extinct for about thre years although many viewer still are ranting about it. Re cent dramas, such as the Som erset Maugham series, hardly be called deep. The last opera was Louis Rei shown last year. (Anti opera viewers will have to prepare themselves tlu's week for a CBC production of the opera, Hanse and When it comes to music on TV, it's popular music which gets the nod, on the Martin Jones Williams shows. Rock music, in its less fascinating forms, gets a weekly outing on CFCN's Come Together. Coun- try music, through Countrytime and the Johnny Cash Show, gets z. better go round than classi- cal music. Yet such a mass appealing show as the weekly Ed Snllivan Show makes a point of mixing up its puppet comedy light- music schedule with appear; ances by stars of opera, ballet and music. Apparently Sullivan, a veteran of 23 years on tele- vision, understands many of his viewers prefer Bach to Bachar- ach. It seems unjust that viewers should tick off the CBC for hon- oring a composer who has giv- en music lovers so much en- joyment. Beethoven and his Ninth, tel- ecast on the 200th anniversary of the German composer's birth- day, was interesting for its cool appraisal of the work and the composer by historian writer II. C. Bobbins Landon. He raised the controversy of tJie chorale ending of the work, and wasn't sparing of some of the less likeable qualities of the womanizing, flinty Beethoven. Less agreeable was the heav- ily Germanic rendering by the Berlin Philharmonic of the work in its final stages backed by oppressively gargantuan sets. But, in total, the program was educational and refreshing if for nothing else than it intro- duced viewers to one of the world's great pieces of music. What the CBC needs is not less serious art, but more of it. Viewers' hours are already ham- strung with Lucille Ball and American football. One of the more intriguing aspects of the celebration of Beethoven's birthday is that if the composer were alive today, he'd be making money faster than he could bank it. Robbins Landon, the British musicologist on the CBC show, issued a biography this year of the composer. Beethoven's face has appear- ed in magazine ads and on T- shirts. The first few notes of the Ninth are used by the NBC in its nightly news. His life story is being serial- ized around the world, includ- ing Canada on the CBC radio network. The opening four notes of his Fifth Symphony were employ- ed by the Allies during the war and continue to turn up in com- mercials. Record companies are coming with numerous new issues of liis music to honor his birth. During his lifetime he sold lis works for very little, it be- ng the age before royalties had arrived on the scene. Today, he :ould set up his own publishing i company without ever turning his hand to another hemidemi semiquaver note (as they say in All poor Beethoven is lef with now is a reputation as be ing the greatest composer who ever lived, and the knowledge lhat his glowering countenance has been the subject of a bunch of park statutes. Sic transit Beethoven.
