Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 3, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta Stratford touch adds flair to Ottawa Riel OTTAWA (CP) After six years as artistic director of the Stratford Shakespearean Festival, Jean Gascon is bringing a bit of the Stratford flair to his first directing as- signment at the National Arts Centre. With a cast of 45, the larg- est ever used in the centre's theatre for one of its own pro- ductions, Gascon is working on a stage thrusting into the audience, and has hired Eng- lish-and French-speaking ac- tors for John Coulter's 1950 play, Riel. It opens Jan. 13. Albert Millaire, one of Mon- treal's best-known actors in both English and French theatre, plays the Metis leader, and Edward Atienza, who last summer had the title role in Stratford's King John, is Col. Garnet Wolseley, leader of the expedition sent west in 1869 to put down the Red River rebellion. Sandy Webster, a performer for 25 years in radio, tele- vision and on stage, plays Sir John A. Macdonald and Mar- cel Girard plays J. A. Chap- leau, Macdonald's cabinet minister who agrees with him that Riel should be hanged. "Throughout the play, we have cast all the Metis and French-Canadians with French-Canadian actors, and the English parts with Eng- Gascon said during a rehearsal break. "It brings a flavor and sense of reality to the play. In moments where there are no English characters on stage- in intimate little scenes with Riel and his Metis we go to French. There are some private moments with only Riel, saying his prayers in French. Gascon believes it is the first time the two languages are used freely on stage, and said such a bilingual produc- tion could only he done in a city as bilingual as Ottawa.

Several changes were recently made to the Canada Pension Plan. These will result in substantially increased monthly benefits for 1975 and subsequent years. There are other important changes, too. One of these is equality for the spouses and dependent children of male and female contributors. This means that for female contributors, in addition to being eligible for a retirement pension and disability protection for themselves, and a death benefit payable to their estates, as has been the case in the past, their spouses and dependent children are now eligible for benefits as follows: Benefits for Surviving Spouses A monthly pension payable to the widower who at the time of the death of the contributor is over 35 years of age. or under 35 years of age but is disabled or has dependent children; that is, a benefit similar to that which has always existed for widows Benefits for Orphans A monthly benefit payable to unmarried dependent children under 18 and to unmarried dependent children between 18 and 25 attending school or university on a full-time basis. NOTE: In order for survivors to qualify, the contributor must have died in January 1968 or later and must have contributed lor the minimum contributory period, which is three years for deaths occuring before January Benefits for Children of Disabled Contributors A monthly benefit payable to unmarried dependent children under 18 and to unmarried dependent children between 18 and 25 attending school or university on a full-time basis, where the contributor concerned is in receipt of a CPP Disability Pension. NOTE: In all cases, it is necessary to make application for benefits. If such applications are approved, payments can only be made is, from January No payment can be made for any period prior to that date. Other Changes: no longer have to retire to obtain your CPP retirement pension at age 65. CPP retirement pensioners may work without having their earnings from January 1975 onwards reduce their pensions. The earnings is, the maximum amount on which contributions can be paid and on which benefits can be being raised to in 1975 and to in 1976. The initial amount of earnings, on which you are not required to contribute, will be in 1975.

The announcement was made at FIDE headquarters here. The federation said Italy bid to stage the match in Milan and Mexico for a Mexico City tournament. Fischer and Karpov have until April 2 to decide the three offers they will accept, the FIDE spokesman said. However, there was no in- dication from the FIDE of- ficials whether Fischer has yet agreed to defend his title. Fischer "resigned" his title last June, saying he would not participate in a world tourna- ment which was then schedul- ed for February. He told FIDE he objected to its 36- game limit, which includes draws. Fischer does not want any limit put on the number of games to be played, nor does he want draws to be counted. Organization officials have said Karpov will automatical- ly become world champion if Fischer does not agree by April 1 to defend his crown in match under FIDE regulations. Fischer won his title from Boris Spassky of the Soviet Union two years ago in Reyk- javik, Iceland.

Any other violins around the house should go to his wife, he said.
