Moviemakers it seems are unable to come to terms with adult love while making hay with puppy longings, rampant lust and geriatric gambols. The sexual shell game played out in 130 minutes of expensive television time by such high -.priced talent creaked along with the viewer locked into a spot, slipping into a hypnotic trance when the eyes grow heavy and finally close in relief. Richard was suitably clipped purveying his current stilled anguish with empty eyes, Liz was properly coiffed and gowned, even managing a quick and ravishing change in the time it took for Dick to return from the airport. The children were good, but it was hard to accept the midlands, Liverpool and upper class accents split three ways and reconcile them with Mum and Dad. What is hard to witness is another downer for a fine actor; what is hard to accept is that in the wings are fine actors waiting for employment, fine writers waiting for opportunity, fine moviemakers wait- ing, in vain, for funding. The Burtons should take the money and rim. ' RELIEF: Then to turn to the reason for missing part one of Divoi'ce, the Gilbert Paterson production of Babes in Arms. And what joy to see youngsters like the sparkling Joy Stephure, the stunningly mature performance of Jancllc Johnson, and the two toughest roles tackled and canned well by Alidair Mcintosh and Jerry McNamara. The entire cast gave joyfully and their audiences accepted their gift gratefully. Some of the kids involved are obviously "naturals" but only the director can know the younpster who really did some growing by involvement in such a production. And that, after all, is the name of the game, that's what justifies all the time, and the work and the dedication. Now it's off tonight, down the yellow brick road, to Wilson Junior High's production of Wizard of Oz at the Yates. * * * BACK HOME: Mike Sutherland former information officer at the University of Lethbridge, man about music and an original member of The Point of Interest. It's interesting to recall that both Mike and Brian Wilson, director of the Gilbert Paterson production, were cast members of Share a laugh William Hutt and Elisabeth Sheperd, members of the National Theatre of Canada of Stratford, share a laugh during a news conference in Warsaw, Poland.

This was Brian's first essay on stage and an involvement that has paid great dividends this week. * * AT LAST: It must be many a long year since the local stage saw a production of Gilbert and Sullivan. So it's good news that the Stake Mutual of the Church of Jesus Christ ' of Latter-day Saints will bring Pirates of Penzance to the Yates May 9 and 10. No better choice could have been made. Yeoman of the Guard is unreservedly British, the Mikado and Pinafore have been done, if not here, to a fare-thee-well, and Patience, delightful music and all, is a greenery-yallery age hard to reconcile to a western stage. So it's to be Pirates of Penzance with Kathleen Stringham as Mabel, Ian Mandin, the alcoholic backslider of last year's The Order Is Love, as the very model of. a model majcy-general and director Georgia Fooks currently beating the bushes for a tenor. � * * RADIO A.M.

Dame Edith's crushing rejoinder "a handbag" is an eternal delight to be savoured again. Scheduled for Friday morning the program will be a sort of "This is Your Life" of W. O. Mitchell the creator of Jake and the Kid. Peter Gzowski interviews Mitchell in the Centennial Public Library of High River, with some of the author's old friends dropping in to share memories. It should be a delightful hour. * * HEART: And there's plenty around, but you'll get more than you give by attending the Kaleidoscope of Music to be presented at the Lethbridge Collegiate Institute Tuesdajy evening. On stage will be the Princess Patricias ' Canadian Light Infantry Band with band director Captain L. Camplin and the LCI's Green and Gold Band under the baton of Jerry Pckarney. It will be a great concert, that can be stated without reservation, a great opportunity for the youthful bandsmen to meet the more mature musicians, and a chance for you to support the Alberta Heart Fund and the LCI Band uniform drive. At a buck a ticket you just can't lose. L.C.C.: The Harlequin players of the Community College Holloway signs for festival NIAGARA-ON-THE-LAKE, Ont.

The government plans to stop supplying fluoride in July to municipalities which have their own central water systems and haven't decided to fluoridate the water themselves. Communities without municipal water systems will continue receiving government fluoride supplements. About 100 officials of local boards of health said the gradual elimination of fluoride programs should be delayed until October, 1974, when communities could hold plebiscites on fluoridation during regular municipal elections. Health Minister Neil Crawford said his department would give "every consideration" to the request for extension of the program.
