Ninety minutes of birds, and not a human being among them. It is an adaptation of the best-selling book, Jonathan Livingston Seagull. Produced PWA buys new cargo aircraft VANCOUVER (CP) - Pacific Western Airlines has purchased a replacement for the Boeing 707 which crashed in a blizzard in Edmonton Jan. 2 with five men aboard.

FIRST CARDS Playing cards have been traced back as far as 800 AD. by Hall Bartlett, the film boasts a cast of hundreds-two Jonathans, 13 other trained gulls and a 300-bird flock. Paramount Pictures, which will distribute the film in October, said one Jonathan could not make a news conference here yesterday because he had to complete shooting and "his insurance company would not risk $1 million for a tramc-continental flight. Although there will be no people in the movie, about 100 of the gulls will have human voices, and there will be no animated gulls. Cameras ride in a helicopter. The. Jonathan that stood quietly on a table for press viewing is a white glaucous gull. The Jonathan that appears at the beginning of tile film, before it enters "another plane of consciousness," is a California gull with grey wings. Animal trainer Gerry Gero said the flock already has been returned to the wild and the hand-trained gulls soon will be, with no ill effects. He .said that as far as he knows Theatre critics win awards OTTAWA (CP) - Theatre critics Martial Dassylva of Montreal la Presse and Christopher Dafoe of Vancouver Sun have won Canada Council travel awards for cross-country trios surveying the current Canadian theatre scene.

The show by the self-taught, Grade 8 drop-out opens at the gallery of the Otis Art Institute in Los Angeles Feb. 21. It will run for 10 weeks. For the show the 44-year-old Gladstone has assembled 48 paintings, 27 small sculptures, 10 black-and-white composite drawings and a number of sculpture models. "I'm going as a Canadian artist," said Mr. Gladstone in an interview," but I'm puzzled that the honor had to come from an American gallery." Although, his work frequently has been shown by private galleries in Canada, he said he never has had a major one-man exhibition in a Canadian public gallery. "Perhaps this Los Angeles show will allow me to be recognized a little more in Canada," he said with a slight smile. RECOGNITION SPREADS Since 1959 he has received commissions for sculptures from various government and private groups in Canada as well as from Australia, the United States, Britain and Is rael. This year a Gladstone creation of welded metal embedded in slabs of plastic was installed as the focal point of a fountain complex at Harvard University's new graduate school of design. His work also is in more than 100 private collections in many parts of the world.  I SMALLER THAN A CAT The mink, a member of the weasel family, is smaller than a small house cat.

N. MEMBERS AND THEIR GUESTS ONLYI Practice makes perfect Members of an acrobatic troupe of the Moscow Circus have their problems as they practise for opening night at the Civic Centre in Ottawa. The circus performs in Ottawa until Saturday before moving on fbr the rest of their North American tour. Moscow acrobats thrill audience OTTAWA (CP) - From start to finish, the members of what has been called the world's best circus Kept- their single ring humming with a variety of feats as the Moscow Circus opened a 10-week Canadian stint here. , There were the usual aerial-ists in spangled costumes but much of the emphasis was on near-perfect gymnastic ability as well as showmanship. One acrobat was catapulted into a chair on i pole about 15 feet above the ring floor, doing a somersault in mid-air and never missing a note on the Russian folk song he was playing on the accordion. The famous Moscow Circus bears were included, walking down steps on their forepaws, balancing atop a pole, and looking almost human as they danced, with trainer Victor Eder or slid sideways on a bench to steal a kiss from a pretty maid.

They were dozens of feet from the floor and used no net. In a similar exhibition, the troupe's gymnasts carried out the usual trapeze throws and catches but used a trampoline instead of a safety net, allowing many new variations. ' Performers were tossed high in the air, bounced back up from the trampoline twisting and somersaulting, and were caught on the other side of the trapeze-type structure that towered above each end of the bouncy canvass. A reluctant clown was the focal point for a series of near misses that had the Ottawa audience holdings its breath. His pants got lost about mid-way through. The clowns did a good job of holding the audience attention whLe equipment changes were taking place in the single ring. And the jugglers have to be seen to be believed.
