Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 11, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Skating as a family sport By JUDY TUHIC Writer Whatever happened to that oW fashioned fun-sport family skating? There once was a time when the local frozen over pond was proud- ly decorated wiUi many a zippy couple and several dawned youngsters. But these regular outings teem to be a thing of the past that few of us in this modern age have time to enjoy. It isn't a lack of facilities, nor a lack of opportunity. Skating Is Just down in its ratings. Kas Kostek, ice marshal! at the Adams Park Ice Cen- tre, said that a normal turn- out for family skating night would be 70 or so persons. Of these, "dose to 75 per cent are those who come regularly with their and take advantage of what is he aaM. He added that this num- ber should be higher as Hie Idea uf providing family skating (which is restricted to those 18.years of age and is to have parents come out with their children and be able to teach them to skate without the problem of avoiding the over-zealous younger skaters present at public skating. Among those who still en- joy the activity is the Les Colwill family. Both par- ents have skated for most of ttieir lives, and introduced their children to the ice at an early age. Mr. Colwill, an ex- pro hockey player for ttie New York Rangers, said that his family would sooner "skate than stay at home Mid watch the Idiot box, n I call it." Commenting on the popu- larity of skating as a fam- ily sport, he said "It seems more people are taking to participating in sports in- stead of just being specta- tors, and there are more here than two years ago." Not everyone need he an expert on the ice.' The Vucurevich family is taking the opportunity to teach four-year-old Darren to skate, and they all enjoy the evening out. An appreciation of the sport may be fast fading, and an ait that was once a winter happening on the way out. But local stores are re- porting good skate sales, not losses in the blade business. The question is, where have all the skaters gone? John and Sophie Vucurevich auii) ten, Damn Youth culture explosion brings on theatrical boom By JEAN SHARP Canadian Press Staff Writer TORONTO (CP) Theatre for the young Is enjoying a boom these days. It's visible to meet people as a cluster of productions at Christmas and another scatter for the spring school holidays, but increas- ingly it has a vigorous life through the rest of the year in productions that travel from school to school and in branching-off experimental programs. Two Toronto companies that pafd'm for children are Young People's Theatre and the Studio Children's Theatre, offspring of the Studio Lab Theatre. Susan Rubes, founder pro- ducer of Young People's, says believes her company to be one of the largest Equity employers of Canadian talent, "Over a period of a year we emptoy 40-odd actors, four directors, eight stage manag- ers and crews of six or seven." The Studio Children's Thea- tre employs 10 people. Both use the work of Cana- dian writers and musicians. Ernest Schwarz, artistic director of Studio Lab, specu- lates that a lot of factors are involved in UK interest in children's theatre, hire is happening at all levels, STUDENTS FORM CAST "The explosion of youth cul- partly because there are so many of them. Under the cap- italistic system, they're a good market. "But there Is also an em- phasis on the teeming and creative process at BD early age. We now know that a child's attitude toward team- ing is shaped when he's very young." Mrs. Rubes says she be- lieves live theatre Is impor- tant to a child because it is a personal thing that involves its audience at many levels. "live theatre makes a de- mand. It does not allow you to go and get a pop or to turn yourself off. Television is a LETHBRIDGE FISH GAME ASSN. WEDNESDAY AT 8 P.M. IN THE EAGLES HALL 13th St. N.

"Youngsters allow them- selves to be involved, even when you don't have a partici- pating play, and at the same time, they're critical. An actor cannot cheat on a child's audience. Children don't make allowances." Both the groups have plays touring schools during the year, Young People's in To- ronto and Studio Lab in Northern Ontario. Both work with teachers and students to try to make the experience more than an isolated break from classes. Both are involved in experi- mental programs that go be- yond performances. Under Ron Singer, the Young People's Theatre oper- ates a student company. From auditions, they choose 15 actors and 10 production people. For several weeks they rehearse weekends and evenings and finally take the students out of school for three weeks. They work on their production as a profes- sional company would, full time, In a theatre. Then they tour the schools with it. Mr. Schwarz says Studio Lab will have no Toronto the- atre in 1972 and is considering a northern base. It is negotiat- ing with people in Sudbury who want to organize a thea- tre OGiiUe. In the meantime, it operates a community resources group under Barry Karp. He de- scribes them as a team of specialists in creative learn- ing. They have worked with the libraries, a Sunday school, the University of Toronto, a teachers organization, In housing projects, with a parks and recreation department. "More and more, we are taking the creative process out of the studio. It's not just happening in a theatre, it's got a community back- ground."

Helpful wives in trouble PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) Wives who make sandwiches for their husbands' friendly card games may be guilty of promoting gambling under Oregon's new criminal code. District Attorney Desmond Connall says the code, as he understands it, makes private card games beyond the reach of the law although still tech- nically illegal. Potential spies LONDON (AP) A security memorandum to British civil servants warns them not to em- ploy girls from Communist countries as household help be- cause the girls might be poten- tial spies. But anyone connected with the game who doesn't play is, according to the code, promot- ing gambling, Connall said. So card-playing Oregon hus- bands apparently will bavo the choice, after the code goes, into effect, of inviting their wives to join their games or making their own sandwiches.
