Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 14, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta 6 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Tuesday, January 14, 1975 Impoverished poets seek more money from gov't LONDON (iteuter) Im- poverished poets sometimes better known for expounding the causes of protest in verse are now up in arms and threatening militant for more money from the British government. But what does an out-of- work poet do to back his de- mands? The answer: IM- PROMPTU read-ins and reci- tations at key centres of arts. an hour of Theatre marks birthday NEW YORK (AP) American Ballet Theatre gave itself a gala evening of dance in honor of its 35th birthday. There was a spoken tribute by choreographer Agnes de Mille and the award of Handel Medalions. New York City's highest culture award, to co directors Lucia Chase and Oliver Smith at the ceremonies here." The loudest bravos of the evening were for Erik Bruhn, the elegant classic dancer who retired from the company only two seasons ago. He danced, in Miss Julie. Though only Bruhn did any large amount of real dancingi about 25 former dancers either took part in the evening's dances or took bows at the end of the evening. Fernando Bujones, Buddy Balough and Terry Orr danced the opening trio from Jerome Robbins' light hearted Fancy Free. Agnes de Mille started in her original role in her 1941 ballet. Three Virgins and a Devil, to be replaced before the going got too tough by Sallie Wilson. Yurek Lazowski, who was in Ballet Theatre from 1941 to 1943 was the Devil. Cynthia Gregory, who also danced Miss Julie, was the Princess in the Rose Adagio, partnered by three former company stars, Igor Youskevitch, Andre Eglevsky and Scott Douglas and present principal dancer Gayle Young.

One example: "Twonk, rol, rol, rol, twonk twonk rol rol rol, twonk rol rol rol rol rol, twonk twonk rol rol rol rol rol rol." Plotting the read-in cam- paign is the British Poets' Conference, a sort of poets' trade union, which claims the government-appointed Arts Council is jeopardizing the de- velopment of poetry and dis- playing prejudice against the spoken word. Bob Cobbing, convener of the poets' conference's 230 members, and author of the "Twong rol, rol, rol..." poem (it's called said today: "At present literature as a whole gets only one per cent of the Arts Council budget. We want 10 per cent." That one per cent repre- sents about and about half that sum goes in support of poets and poetry. Charles Osborne, secretary of. the Arts Council's liter- ature committee, argues that literature is not a performing art and therefore does not need as much financial sup- port as do music and drama, which get nearly million each a year.
