WEEKEND ENTERTAINMENT At The MINERS' AND 733-13th St. N. rs and Invited Guests Only1 Man wins life battle against grizzly bear WILLIAMS LAKE. B.C. A Williams Lake man was fortunate to be alive today after a freak accident near Bella Coola. 300 miles west of this Cariboo community. Norm Kadoski was on a three-day fishing trip with his family at Tweedsmuir Park when suddenly a grizzly bear came out of nowhere and attacked him. Mr. Kadoski said he was going fishing with his daughter Caroll. 11, early Saturday evening when the bear pounced on them As the seven-foot- bear was approaching, he yelled at his daughter to get into the water 15 feet away. LEG WOUND The 30-year-old man fought the 900-pound grizzly off with a fishing pole but not before the enraged attacker sank his teeth into Mr. Kadoski's leg. They wrestled to the edge of a 10-foot embankment and fell 'over. As Mr. Kadoski fell backwards, the bear let go of his leg and he managed to scramble to the river with his daughter and wait for help to arrive. Another fisherman arrived shortly after the incident and rushed the injured man to the Bella Coola hospital where he was treated and released. By RICHARD F. SHEPARD New York Times Service NEW YORK If the paragraphs are misplaced and the lines are pied in this account, the blame could easily be traced to the long fingers of young Doug Henning, who has been putting things where they should not be at the Cort Theatre. GRAND ILLUSIONS Henning's grand illusions and dexterous transferences are the centerpiece of "The Magic Show." a broadway musical that stars him as a magician, and this is phenomenally prescient casting because Henning is. indeed, a magician. During the show, which runs in one act, no intermission, a girl is sawed in half, a dove becomes a rabbit, an actress turns into a cougar, a shredded newspaper becomes a whole newspaper and piece de resistance, a girl is placed in a sack, which is placed in a chest, which is locked and then covered with a cloth the cloth is removed and. quicker than you can curl your supercilious lip., up pops Henning from the sack in the chest beneath the cover. NO TOP HAT Henning does all this without top hat. without razz matazz. He dresses informally and is a mere wisp of a 27-year-old, long-haired and mustached. with a happy smile bigger than his slim figure. was not sure how New York would take to this." the Canadian preformer said the other day in an interview. "I thought they might be too sophisticated for this. But the audiences have been great and the show has been doing fine." Henning is a true believer. He calls his art magic or illusion and recoils when one loosely asks him "how's Henning feels strongly that magic is art and is also a part of the theatre. It was this sort of artistic legerdemain that conjured up and travel expenses from the Canadian Arts Council to study the hypothesis that magic plus theater equals art. It was an unusual grant for the council. %vhich is used to making grants to actors, dancers, writers, painters and others who work in the more orthodox, even if avant-garde, arts WINNIPEG NATIVE Indeed, the very act of saying you're a magician in an age where one highly placed administration can destroy the world before you can say presto, changeo takes a good deal of faith. This youthful magician has been a believer since his boyhood, first in Winnipeg and later in Toronto. and right through McMaster University in Hamilton. "At first, when I was in college, being a magician was not the classiest thing to be." "Henning said. He performed at many children's birthday parties, but night clubs were afraid to book him. he explained. "But I started to grow and I never forced myself on anyone Now, in the last several years, we're fed up with the technological society and we realize that sicence doesn't give us all the answers There is top-level security for the magician's stockpile of props and plots at the Cort.
