"All this success and all his records says Cashman. "It would be nice if we could call him up and say, 'Hey Jimmy, you're No. 1 again this We would enjoy that." "It makes us feel very help- says West, who was Croce's closest friend since college days when they sang together in'glee club. "It's like a guy in the Olympics making a perfect dive and just before he hits 4he water, the camera stops." Cashman and West encour- aged Croce to record his big- gest hits, You Don't Mess Around With Jim and Bad, Bad Leroy Brown. "We were at the point where the fight was almost says Cashman. "We were at the point where we could enjoy the success and the friendship." Cashman and West were here to preview a 90-minute TV special in which they appear. The show, A Tribute to Jim Croce, will be shown in March. IT'S A HEART BREAKER The mustachioed, craggy- faced, gentle-humored Croce is shown performing, telling jokes and romping in the grass with his wife, Ingrid, and their now two-year-old son. Croce, whose death is barely mentioned in the show, was for years "just a folkie." His first record album in the folk vein was a flop and he moved back to Pennsylvania where he worked as a truck driver. In 1970, Cashman and West introduced Croce to a young guitarist, Maury Muelheisen, and together they recorded some tapes. COMMUNITY SERVICES CITY OF LETHDRIDGE PUBLIC SWIMMING.

Mired 1 "CHEMOS" Saturday, March 2 Upstairs Downstairs "CHEMOS" paramount LAST TIME TONITE By JAMES NELSON EDMONTON (CP) Rising building costs are adding a day to the projected cost of a new million home for Citadel Theatre says its founder and president, Joseph H. Shoctor. The new theatre, replacing the cramped 274-seat converted Salvation Army hall which gave its name to the Citadel, is to be built on city-owned land in the heart of Edmonton, close to the main intersection of Jasper Ave. and 101st St. Mr. Shoctor, a leading lawyer and promoter of everything from football to Broadway shows, said in an interview the provincial government has pledged support for the new theatre. But it does not want to announce the sum until the federal government has announced a contribution. Ottawa's action apparently has been held up pending the formulation of a new per- forming arts policy for the secretary of state department. Such a policy has been submitted to cabinet and approved in principle. But the treasury has not yet put up the money. Mr. Shoctor said he has been pressing Ottawa to make an announcement. WAITING EXPENSIVE "The way building costs are rising, I estimate it is costing us a day, he said with his bushy grey eye- brows knotting. "If we don't get started soon, what we planned as a million project will be up to million." The Citadel has clearly out- grown its brown brick structure two long blocks west of the new site. It now has close to subscribers, and seating is so tight in the little theatre that the regular customers can't exchange seats for another night "Our audience is unique, be- cause if you take that in proportion to the rest of the country. I don't think any theatre in the country can boast of that kind of support." Hike pensions EDMONTON (CP) About 3.000 retired Alberta teachers will receive a five-per-cent pension increase retroactive to Jan. 1. Education Minister Lou Hyndman said today. He said the increase is "an adjustment to compensate for increased living costs" and will cost 1610.000 this year. The provincial government will contribute with the rest coming from the teachers pension fund. Show Times Chalet Wines Ctd. CHALET WINES LTD. CALGARY. ALBERTA.
