THOMAS TRAVEI-LETHBRIDO.E Phoiw Kirov Ballet company after marrying an American, has arrived in Rome to be re- united, with her husband, Martin Friedman of the Baltimore ballet. The 37-year-old dancer, carrying her eight-month-old son in her arms, told reporters she could no longer live away from the stage and away from her husband. "We will be going to the United States soon and I hope to begin dancing she said. Miss Fedicheva married Friedman early in 1974 after a 13-year engagement. The cou- ple met in Philadelphia in 1961 while the Kirov was in the U.S. After the marriage, Miss Fedicheva lost her job with the Kirov and was forced to take a teaching post in Leningrad. She applied for an exit visa about a year ago. Shah passes ski club test PONTRESINA, Switzerland (AP) The shah of Iran is how a member of the Club 8847 Piz Lagalp Mt. Everest. To join, he had 6Vz hours in which to ski 11 times down a two mile run on Piz Lagalp near this Swiss community, covering a difference in altitude of meters the height of Mt. Everest. He also had to carry his skis on a 25 minute uphill march from a cable car station to the mountain peak. "He passed the test said Eugenio Ruegger, director of the Lagalp group that sponsors the club.

Final Adjudication this evening YATES CENTRE p.m. Tickets Games Athletes No Charge which, in less than a year, has become a bubbling nucleus for the music scene here. Set against the picturesque background of Vieux Mon- treal, amid the colorful sur- roundings of 18th-century ar- chitecture and quaint cobbles- tone streets, 1'Eveche today stands as a perfect showcase for Quebec's musical talents. Converted from the former dining room of a hotel in the centre of the old district, Place Jacques Cartier, 1'Eveche has been operating as a club for about three years, catering at first for chansonniers and more tradi- tional French-Canadian music makers. However, the club's upsurge in popularity over the last nine months since Francine took over management is probably due to her belief that "music has no language barriers." Today, hordes of singers and groups, many from out- side the province, clamber to be billed at this much sought- after venue. Many English- speaking artists, who have settled in Montreal in the hope that here they can jump on the musical merry-goround, have regarded 1'Eveche as a first real break. Francine, a beautiful 30- year-old French-Canadian, says the club provides a healthy integration of French and English music and, de- spite criticism from more tra- ditionalist Quebec music people, tries, to present a 50-50 balance between English-and French-speaking artists for the week-long engagements at HOTEL Lounge ENTERTAINMENT NIGHTLY LIL LARTER yvwwwvwwvwwwwvt Tavern: TOM and KURT 4 HOTEL "To me, there are no bar- riers in music, whether they be political, ethnic, language or she said.

"In the same way, the club is ideal for promising French- Canadian musicians not only as a means to make it in Que- bec but also outside the prov- ince since promoters from say Toronto or New York always pop in when they're in town to check what's going down on our local scene." Francine said she deliber- ately "mixes things up" to provide one week, for in- stance, rock, the next, folk, the next, bluegrass, followed by a week of blues or jazz. "It's a real pot-pourri of she said. And the public loves it. Most nights, crowds line up outside, sometimes 10 deep, waiting to get in. Admission is on week nights and during the weekends. Its popularity is causing some headaches for Francine who's reluctant to change 1'Eveche from an informal club where one can spend the entire evening and watch all three sets of music, to the more formal concert club set- up. "The whole essence of the club is the fact you can come down here and stay for the whole she said. "I don't want to switch to turn- ing everyone out after one set so the people waiting outside can come in. I think it would lose a lot of its appeal if peo- ple felt they could only stay for a couple of hours." She plans, however, to ex- pand the club's .capacity from the present 180 seats to about 250 in the next few months to accommodate larger crowds. STALIN GETS COVERAGE It was announced March 13, 1953, that 672 million copies of the works of Marshal lodis Vissarionovich Dzhugashvili, alias Stalin, had been sold or distributed in 101 languages. OTTAWA (CP) In the basement of a large old build- ing on Wellington Street Sam Kula and his 16-member staff are making a home for old feature films, newsreels and documentary films made by Canadians or filmed in this country. For three years the Public Archives of Canada have been developing national film ar- chives under Mr. Kula's di- rection. "The idea is to make every film available to the public, but they must be serious stu- dents of in studying directorial skills or composition, for ex- just people com- ing in to indulge a Hobby or high-school students working, on a Mr. Kula said. Movies have been with Ca- nadians since 1896, when the Holland Brothers began their tours with film shows and fairs throughout the country and the United States. Canadian Film Institute (CFI) records show that 67 feature films were made in Canada between 1896 and 1939. However, there was little interest in saving them. Most of the early cluding the first Canadian feature, Madeleine de Ver- cheres, made about 1912, and film footage about the First and Second World Wars- were lost. The immediate concern of the archives is to find origi- nals or copies of films made since 1896. Preserving early films takes money- and care. Old nitrate film is highly flam- mable and needs controlled storage. Copying old black-and-white nitrate film onto newer ace- tate safety film costs 50 cents a foot. Rewinding, boxing and storing is also expensive. The earliest collection of Canadian film was made by the National Film Board, which came into being in 1939. In 1967 the film board had a fire in its Montreal warehouse that destroyed many old films. This hastened the or- ganization of the national film archives and the search for copies of films lost in the fire extended under its direction across Canada, the United States and abroad. Now many have been recov- ered, reprinted and stored. The project has worked in co-operation with the CFI, which had started its own Ca- nadian film archives a num- ber of years before. One aim of the national film archives is to consolidate and co-ordinate the federal gov- ernment's interest in motion pictures and television, Mr. Kula said. "This involves the re- sources of the National Film Board, the CBC and other government departments and agencies, as well as films pro-, duced with the participation of the Canadian Film Devel- opment Corp. and the Canada Council." He said Jie hopes to include videotapes of television pro- grams, representative' films of program series, industrial Vows renewed SAN JUAN (AP) Pablo Casal's widow, Martita, and pianist Eugene Istomin have renewed their marriage vows in a Roman Catholic ceremony here.
