OTTAWA (CP) Celia Franca, retiring this summer after 22 years as head of the National Ballet of Canada which she founded, said in an interview at her new home here: "I just don't want to do it any more." She underlined the words individually, though she spoke them with a smile and ap- parently without rancar. She was tired, she said, of the ex- hausting job of fighting critics, fighting for money, fighting for recognition for her company. "The lack of understanding over the years has really got me Miss Franca said But at the same time, she emphasized she is not quitting the National. She will remain as a coach and part-time cho- reographer The work ahead of her should keep her busy for at least a year, she said. Then she might consider some free-lance work. Miss Franca recalled the early days of the National, putting together ballets she remembered from her days with the Royal Ballet in Lon- don, and touring the Canadian countryside trying to drum up interest in ballet. "In the early years, we did a lot of lectures, to girl guides in parish halls and the like. In our second year, with David Haber as our stage manager, we went to places like Red Deer, Alta where we couldn't get the scenery in the door." David Haber, appointed co- artistic director last July, will succeed Miss Franca as sole artistic director of the com- pany this summer. It has been a career of many joys and many heartbreaks, Miss Franca said. The heart- breaks are sometimes more quickly forgotten. The great joy was the company's debut in London two years ago, to great audience and critic acclaim "It was the first time I felt we were beginning to es- tablish an international stature, though we had played in Japan and in she said Now the company is plann- ing a three-week trip to Russia, possibly dancing in the Kremlin palace in Moscow, with another .three weeks in London That is ten- tatively scheduled for next winter. The National Ballet has built its repertoire mainly on classical ballet works, specifically designed and choreographed for the com- pany by a number of in- ternational artists This spr- ing it will launch a new one- act version of Don Juan, choreographed by the American John Neumeier, now with the Hamburg Ballet in West Germany Miss Franca, wife of James (Jay) Morton, first clarinet- tist of the National Arts Centre Orchestra here, is pleased with the growth of ballet in Canada The National now employs 61 dancers and another 40 backstage and in the front office When it is criticized for the it gets each year from the Canada Council, she retorts "We've created em- ployment We spend the money on people earning a living It's a measure of life in the ballet world that some dancers only now are able to buy cars, a few are able to buy small homes. "I wasn't able to buy a then, only jointly with my I was past she said Now 52 but slim and petite, the ballet star, says one ad- mirer, came to Canada from England with nothing but her bare hands and and created Canada's national ballet com- pany LOS ANGELES (AP) Marlene Dietrich will enter a hospital this week for surgery on a leg injury which has not healed, her agent said Friday. The agent, Frank Rio, said Miss Dietrich will enter Meth- odist Hospital in Houston, Tex. The performer, who has never revealed her age, is reported about 70. A spokesman at Methodist said the hospital knew of no plans for her arrival. Rio said Miss Dietrich's ad- mission into the hospital will necessitate cancellation of several engagements. But he said the leg injury, which she suffered in a fall from a stage in London two months ago, has not healed and surgery is necessary to prevent complications and infection. First Show SUrtt p."
