The centre is a professional theatre operated by the YM- YWIIA. Association directors voted at an emergency meeting to go ahead with the play despite a threat by the Association of .Survivors of Nazi Oppression lo demonstrate against it and set up picket lines outside the the-1 utrc if the play was perform- j ed. The play is based on the trial of Adolph Eiclimann. The survivors association i said in a statement that "the j play is. insulting not only to the survivors of the holocaust hul. all sections of the Jew- ish community."

By JERRY BUCK a movie goes on the sir the HOLLYWOOD (AP) The advertising revenue pays for its television movie has become the, major means of developing new series during the last few years. Of the 70-plus shows now being considered for series in the 1972-73 season, more than half will be aired first as movies. In ih; past, such shows as NBC Mystery Movie, The Bold Ones, Medical Centre, Marcus Welby, MB and Hawaii Five-0 were tested first as films. The television movie offers two advantages as a pilot vehicle: First, the series concept and the cast net an audition under bat- tlefield conditions. "It's betlcr than testing in a thenti'e.1' said a network execu- tive1, "because people are react- ing in a normal way at borne." "They've got the can of beer out or the baby's crying." The movies that get the mosl impressive ratings, of course, get prime consideration. PAYS FOP. SELF Second, and more important lo the networks, the TV movie provides an abundance of pilots at little out-of-pocket cost. When In the Centre of Things WED. FEB. 23rd VIMY LOUNGE 'HIGHWAY' SAT.

The shift to movie pilots de- monstrates Ihe opportunity tele- vision offers to turn a profit from the development of new properties. Said a studio spokesman: "The day is long gone when a studio would make a pilot on speculation with its own money. You've got more pilots than ever now because they go on the air where the cost can be written off." For the next few weeks top executives at ABC, CBS and NBC will be closeted in screen- ing rooms looking at movies and other pilots, putting to- gether the schedules Jor next fall. With about 60 hours of new shows to choose from, and with probably less than 20 hours' opening in the schedules at all three networks, it means that two-thirds of the movie pilots will make only a solo flight. Gave his son farm man then went on welfare ROSSBURN, Man.

Lovell gets award PAHIS (AP) Astronaut James Lovell was awarded the Great Medal of the Aeroclub of France on Monday, a distinction which has gone to such aviation pioneers as lh c Wrighl Brothers and Charles Lind- j bergh. Reeve John Mitchell also told a public hearing of the Mani- toba standing committee on ag- riculture of a provincial welfare inspector who told municipal of- ficers he. was under orders to get more people on welfare. Mr. Mitchel, who said 25 per cent of the population in Hos burn are receiving social assist- ance, called for an investigation into "irregularities" in the prov ince's handing of welfare cases. He said he could provide names of all individuals con- nected with his charges. Agriculture Minister Samuel Uskiw said later an investiga- tion will be held into Mr. Mitch- 1 ell's charges.
