BILL FRUET: Bill's mother phoned to say that her son, the writer (Coin' Down the Road Rip Off, Out) is indeed the same lad who appeared in Playgoer's production of Night Must Fall. Mrs. Fmct was quick to point out that Bill got great encouragement as a writ- er when he was a student at L.C.I. His photographer father passed on liis expertise and his own back-ground as an actor should give hi3 work a special dimension. Now he has wrapped up his first assignment as writer-di- rector for the feature Wedding In White and it is fair to say that this young man may be- come one of the strongest cre- ative influences in Canada's no longer fledgling fEm indus- try. Mary (Waters) Hr.initz zero- ed me in on the Night Must Fall production. It was staged Feb- ruary 1953 at the L.C.I, audi- torium in the Alberta Regional Drama Festival. Adjudicator was John Allen of England who described Bill Fruet's interpretation of Danny, the pathological killer, as "ab- solutely right in a very diffi- cult part." Mary got her share of kudoes with a performance hailed as "quite first Hugh Buchanan directed the production and people at- tended what Allen called memorable In the cast were Anita Sus- man, Molly Barron, C. H. Bid- dell, Pat Wagner and Bill Laz- aruk. The crew ii.cluded Harry Knowles, Bill Hay, Elsie Bid- dell, Betty Skeith, Mr. and Mrs. Mike Pisko, Tom Waterfield and his missus, Doug Card and Jes- sie Baalim. Stage manager for the festi- val was Aid. Tom Ferguson and when adjudicator Allen de- plored the shortage of good halls and theatres in Canada, it's not without the realms ot possibility thai a few thought- ful seeds were planted that eventually brought the city the Yalcs Memorial Centre. Kmpcror ICHon: (on, now Dalton El- .nd general manager of CKWX, Vancouver, came from Edmonton that year to slar in Eugene O'Neill's Em- peror Jones. The production re- reived sharp comment from the adjudicator r.nd that may have been part of the toughen- ing-up process which gives Dalt the courage now to sign up Jinly LaMarsh for his station's open line show. Ed Murphy, formerly wilh CKWX is now Judy's competition at CKNW and'since he successfully sued her. alleging libel in her book Bird in a Gilded Cage, the re- verberations of the Murphy-La- Marsh clashes should register high on the radio scale. CHECLINE: Callers this week were hyper critical of the commentaries on the big Calgary Stampede parade and with some justification. Jo Green came down from Edmon- TON (no gal competent enough to do the job in Calgary and CBC brought in Lloyd Robert- son on the theory, one pre- sumes, that a nationaly-known broadcaster would add a cer- tain prestige. The goofs were many, which makes the point: Why don't the networks use people from their local stations and affiliates. nothing else it would introduce fresh faces to the network. CFCN's Hohtanz- Kclly team are old hands at the game but even they were caught short at times. FOR THE DEFENSE: It Is hard to get information to the commentators locally it's almost impossible. Who and what will participate in the Lethbridge parade is unknown right up to the minute that it gets underway. This means run- ning the route trying to pick up scrapes of information, at- tempting to identify bands by the name on the big drum, searching for a familiar face to add Uiat special human ac- cent that is an essential part of good commentary. a ft THE SCENE: Monday's Par- ade and the Ex. will get top coverage from the media. CFCH-TV's color mobile will be in town and Stan Bales and Pal Cole will be commentators for the parade. The video-tape will be broadcast locally at p.m. Tuesday and i ako be seen in Calgary.

Newspaper suspends operations WASHINGTON (AP) The Washington Daily News, an evening tabloid newspaper, an- nounced it is suspending opera- tions. An official of The News, a Scripps Howard publication confirmed a n announcemen wliich had appeared on the era' ployees bulletin board of Tht Evening Star, a standard-size newspaper which has been The News's only evening competi tion. The announcement saic The Star had bought "certain assets" of The News. The Washington Post, a morn ing paper, is the only other daily newspaper in Washington The News has had a Monday through-Saturday circulation o around daily. The Sta daily circulation is above with Sunday. The Post's daily circulation is a r o u n and on Sundays. The News observed its 50th anniversary Nov. 8, 1971. "Experience has demon strated the difficulty of publish ing daily newspapers profitably in metropolitan areas where more than two separate owner- ships the notice on Ths Star bulletin board said. "The Washington Daily News has been operating at a loss for more than five years, and The Evening Star has not been prof- itable for two years. Both man agements have for some time been convinced that one or the other or both would have to sus pend operations if the present newspaper situation were tc continue in Washington." countries by 16 major western powers rose 14 per cent last OECD said its figures for 1971 _. ,._. are preliminary, and subject to ear to billion, and Can- revision. The Canadian Parlia- ment voted a million in- crease last year in the official ada's share rose 21 per cent to million, the Organization "or Economic Co-operation and Development reported here. OECD's development assist- ance committee, of which Can- ada is a member, also reported .hat official development aid by all governments rose .1 per cent to billion. But Canada's governmental aid pro- gram fell short of its goal, de- clining to million from million in 1370. Official aid includes grants and low-interest loans made by ;overnments t o developing countries or international aid agencies, minus any repayment of earlier loans. The total flow includes development aid by non governmental volunteer agencies and foundations. The OECD said 1971 figures are difficult to compare wilh 1970 foreign aid accomplish- ments because of changes that occurred during the year in the 'ntemational exchange values of iome currencies.

However, the Canadian Inter- national Development Agency, which handles the government's foreign aid program, has said there is inevitably a time lag between the voting and alloca- tion cf foreign aid funds, ted their actual expenditure. OECD said two problems grew during the year In Its for- eign aid work. Inflation and exchange rate revaluations cut into the real benefit receiving countries re- ceived from the uid given them. While the gross national product of tlie 1G donor countries com- bined rose by 9.1 per cent last year, 5.4 par cent of tha in- crease was inflationary- The other problem was that donor countries tended to liL'M'.-n Hit- Icrm.1; on which they loans.
