New Brunswick artist paved modern pathway By JAMES NELSON OTTAWA (CP) Goodridge Roberts, New Brunswick-born painter who died in Montreal Monday, was one of the first of Canada's modern school of artists succeeding the famous Group of Seven, a curator of the Show Times PARAMOUNT THEATRE Short Subjects- 7 00 9 00 PAPER CHASE 710 9.10 LAST COMPLETE SHOW. 900 ADULT ENTERTAINMENT PARAMOUNT CINEMA Short Subjects 715 9.15 CRIES WHISPERS 7.30 945 LAST COMPLETE SHOW 915 RESTRICTED ADULT COLLEGE CINEMA THEY CALL ME TRINITY 6 30 10 00 TRINITY STILL MY NAME 820 LAST COMPLETE SHOW. 820 ADULT ENTERTAINMENT National Gallery of Canada said in an interview. Roberts, who was 69, was a nephew and cousin, respec- tively, of the well-known writers Sir Charles G. D. Roberts and Bliss Carman, but decided at the age of 12 to break away from the family tradition of writing to become a painter. He studied at the Montreal School of Fine Arts and in New York. His works hang in many art galleries. The National Gallery here has at least four, including a 1943 nude, two views of Lake Orford painted in 1945, and a 1947 still life. J. W. Borcoman, now curator of photography at the National Gallery, put together a retrospective collection of Roberts's works in 1969, drawn from many collections It circulated major galleries in Eastern Canada until the spring of 1970. Mr. Borcoman said that in the late 1930s and early 1940s, Roberts developed into "the ALLIED ARTS COUNCIL Present REGIONAL ONE ACT FESTIVAL Thursday and Friday, February 7 and 8 p.m.Mch night Yates Memorial Centre ADULTS EACH Aito TALENT HUNT FEB. 22-23 III u.

Roberts refused to become involved in non-figurative painting. He was influenced by Matisse and others soon after the turn of the century, before the advent of cubism. Born in Barbados while his parents were there on a holi- day, Roberts faced the poverty of the Thirties and the artists' life. When he first came to Ottawa in 1930, he worked as a Fuller Brush salesman. Re spent summers living in a tent in the Gatineau Hills north ofnere and on the banks of the Ottawa River east of the city.

Lassie, Daktari bright spots on Soviet TV By ROGER LEDDINGTON MOSCOW (AP) "And now comrades, a half program devoted to the rational use of fodders" at which point millions of Russians search their tele- vision guides in vain for more gripping entertainment. But because the Kremlin uses television as one of its most powerful propaganda weapons, TV fare in the Soviet Union presents an official image that is rarely entertaining, frequently amateurish and prudish, and consistently shaped by ideology. But there are some occasional bright spots and while they faithfully serve the Communist party's needs, they attract audiences that would make a North American network executive jubilant. One of the most popular pro- grams in a remarkable coup for political the just- concluded serial war movie, 17 Flashes of Spring. The superbly-acted and so- phisticated production is a fic- tionalized "documentary" about a Soviet spy who infiltrates the Gestapo and frustrates a secret Nazi- American peace pact that would have left Hitler's legions free to deal with the Russians on the Eastern Front. The United States never negotiated with the Nazis behind Stalin's back, and the Russians never had a spy inside the top hierarchy Ordinary Russians, however, today stubbornly assert the more sensational movie version "must be true otherwise they wouldn't have shown real films of Stalin and Roosevelt" The party's various needs are also served by other forms of entertainment which help direct public thinking. Let's Go Girls is a monthly national broadcast that pits girls in their early 20s against each other in competitions de- signed to persuade young women "to enter the 28 occupations most suited to females but not highly rated in status." Thus, in a society that loudly boasts of its female equality laws, girls battle for the right to be called the Soviet Union's best sock darner, salesgirl, house- keeper, cook or midwife. Following cries of "female the authorities later organized a male equiva- lent, Let's Go Boys. These popular items, how- ever, are rare compared with such yawn-provoking programs as those devoted to National Tank Forces Day, Forestry Day, Tractor Drivers Day and Geologists Day. Adults and children alike will, however, break away from the dinner table to watch the only two United States programs regularly scheduled on Soviet TV: the wildlife film Daktari, and the All-America heroine Lassie. Television audiences also reach a peak with sports pro- grams which rank with the West's best News programs are restricted to brief reports on those major world events Moscow thinks the public should know about, lengthy dissertation on domestic economic successes and events. To watch all this, the government has provided one TV channel that by 1975 will reach 80 per cent of the population and three channels for the western and central regions of the U S S R Several programs are broadcast in color via the Soviet-French Secam System, PLAY CLOSED DOWN More than people saw the Toronto Free Theatre pro- duction, Clear Light, before police closed the play down last fall on the grounds that it was obscene. but the cost of a color at the official exchange color TV out of most Soviet homes. college cinema STARTS WEDNESDAY SPECTACLE OF WED seusn AflDFDBY!
