New 800-seat theatre to house Shaw festival NIAGARA ON THE-LAKE, Out. (CP) A tew ground-hug- ging 800-seat theatre, built at a cost of more than million, opens here next week to house the 12-year-old Shaw Festival.

Previously, home was the town's old Court House, fitted with 400 seats, which the festival still leas for some works. Thomas Burrows, general manager of the festival, says ticket sales for the new theatre are going well but it is difficult to make comparisons with past years because of the new seat- ing capacity. The Shaw Festival in the past sold out 98 per cent of its seats. It is the only professional company in the world dedicated to the works of George Bernard Shaw, who died in 1950 at the age of 94. To open the inaugural season in the new theatre, Hol- loway will star in You Never Can Tell, written in 1895-96. Co- star is the festival's artistic di- rector, Paxton Whitehead. Many of the buildings in this old town predate Shaw himself, built after the War of 1812-14 in the early 19th century. The new theatre, ultra-mod- ern inside, tries to match the Featured THIS WEEK at the VENTURA HOTEL COALDALE "MARTY MONTGOMERY" TO ENTERTAIN YOU rusticity of the village common. It is located two blocks from the Court House and is con- structed of red brick with t broad, sloping cedar-cbiogled roof. The theatre itself is waited In rough-cut cedar, left natural with its gentle perfume. The last row of the balcony is only 68 feet from the foot- lights, and the accousties are said to be nearly perfect for Shavian drama. Later in the season, the Shaw Festival will present William Golding's The Brass Butterly, and Shaw's rarely-produced Fanny's First Play. At the end of the festival Sept. 23, You Never Can Tell will go on a seven-week tour of Canada and the United States, starting with the National Arts Centre in Ot- tawa. Mr. Burrows said in an inter- view the Festival is about 000 short of its million-plus fund-raising goal. The Ontario and federal governments each contributed to the capi- tal costs, and support the festi- val with operating grants. But 75 per cent of the oper- ating costs come from the box office, with ticket prices rang- ing this year from to ELKS PUBLIC BINGO 1251 3rd Avenue South EVERY THURSDAY 8 p.m. 16 GAMES 3rd ANNIVERSARY BINGO NIGHT 15th GAME JACKPOT IN 49 NOS. in 50 in 51 NOS.

(AP) Jim Cullum, the Happy Jazz Band founder, died yesterday of lung cancer. Cullum, 59, got his semi-pro- fessional jazz group together a decade ago and made it one of the best in the United States. In he set up the World Series of Jazz, which competes each year in this southern Texas city. Cullum, who had played with Jack Teagarden, Jimmy Dorsey and Victor Lombardo, always refused to put the Happy Jazz Band on the road, although he did accept occasional bookings in other cities. WASHINGTON (AP) The United States television code board laid down principles yesterday against commercials on children's TV programs that exploit, frighten or appeal to violent behavior. Another of the 10 principles adopted by the National Associ- ation of Broadcast Television's review board says: "Appeals shall not be used which directly or by implication contend that if children have a product, they are better than their peers or lacking it will not be accepted by their peers." About 60 per cent of United States TV stations subscribe to the code, but since the national networks do also, the code af- fects virtually all stations. Thursday's action follows steps taken last January to re- duce by 25 per cent the time devoted to commercials and other non-program material during weekend programs de- signed mainly for children.

(AP) A 20- year-old Vida, Ore., woman, Renee Allen, has reported see- ing bigfoot, the legendary mountain beast which supposed- ly lives in the northwest and continuously eludes man. Airs. Allen told police she saw Bigfoot while hiking May 24 Linton Lake in the high Cascades. She was accompanied only by her 2-year-old daughter when she heard a noise and stopped on a trail, Mrs. Allen said. She said she watched from about 40 yards away as a crea- ture ran up a hill with tremen- dous speed and disappeared into the forest. Mrs. Allen said the creature was in her sight for about 90 seconds. She said it ran on two legs, parting brush with its hands and arms "in a swim- mer's breastroke motion." The animal's face, hands and i feet were very dark brown in color and resembled those of human beings, Mrs. Allen said. She said hair on the creature'! body was four to five inches long. Mrs. Allen said she hadn't reported the sighting earlier cause she doubted anyom would believe her, just as she never had believed Bigfoot stories previously. Never too late MARTINSBURG, W.Va.
