Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 14, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Jun. M, 1972 THE lETHBRIDGt HERALD 35 SAILING ALONG A Chinese junk owned by Louis Panlaleo of Toronto, who had if shipped to Canada eight years ago, sails past Toronto skyline. The vessel, which has red soils and a painted dragon on the hull, occasion- ally sails out of HornilJon, bul it is now moored at Toronto Island marina. (CP Wirephato) Music suddenly interests Ottaiva By .JAMES NELSON OTTAWA (CP) The Na- tional Arts Centre orchestra, hailed by New York critics as a gem, lias already sold sub- scription tickets for more than 70 per cent of the seats avail- able far next season, four months before it starts. Some of the unusual de- mand is attributed to a spe- cial advertising and promo- tion campaign this spring. But there is wonder that phleg- matic old Ottawa, with a long history of disinterest in con- cert music, has suddenly be- come so enthusiastic. It used to be a place where diplomats entertained only diplomats, sergeant's wives had coffee only with ser- geant's wives, and Grade JI civil servants drank beer with other Grade II civil servants in pubs and grumbled about their jobs. Now, for nearly three years, the National Arts Centre has been alive nearly every night with a broad cross-section, dressed in their Sunday best or in casual slacks and sweaters. The NAG orchestra has proved to be consistently the best ticket- seller of all attractions. ADDING TWO MEMBERS Formed when the centre opened in 1869, under musical director Mario it is growing next season to 46 members with the addition of another violinist and another violist. It remains an orchestra in the classical symphonic tradi- tion of Mozart and Haydn on purpose. The big lOO-pIus or- chestras of Montreal and To- ronto can play the big roman- tic works here, while the more mobile NAC orchestra can travel more easily to smaller cities, part of its pur- pose as a national orchestra. For the first time that can he recalled, the mayors of Ot- tawa, Vanier City and Hull, Que., united this spring on one NAC Or- chestra Week. The week opened with a parade and the orchestra played half-hour mini-concerts in the Ottawa city hall, the Parliament Buildings and at suburban shopping centres. Orchestra box office offi- cials said there was a 14-per- cent jump in ticket sales that week. At last count, more than 70 per cent of tiie seats available for Tuesday and Thursday night concerts next season have been sold. When all subscriptions were in last season, a Wednesday night series sold 69 per cent of the opera house, and the Thursday night series sold 81 per cent. LECTURES INCLUDED A six-concert series at re duced prices lor students and senior citizens is being re- peated next season, and a se- ries of lectures by Prof. A. M. Gillmor of Carlelon Univer- sity music department, tai- lored to the concert program, will be given in conjunction with the 12-concert Tuesday night regular series. A new six-concert series is being launched for families. Seats anywhere in the house will be sold at each for children accompanying a par- ent paying the regular price Already half the seats have been sold. In addition to its own con certs, the orchestra will play next season for 1G Ottawa ap- pearances of out-of-towu opera and ballet companies. It will tour the Atlantic provinces for the first time Plans are also being made for tours of southwestern and Northern Ontario. In the spring of 1973, the orchestra will make its European debut in Warsaw, followed by a tour taking in Leningrad, Kiev Riga, Moscow, London, and Versailles.

The Times says items o! correspondence now available to scholars at the Roosevelt Li- brary at Hyde Park, N.Y., con- flict in some instances with both U.S. state department histories and the late British prime min- ister's memoirs. Although Churchill said in his six-volume history, The Second World War, that he met with So- viet Premier Stalin in Moscow in October, with 'the full- est assurance of approval and good will" from Roosevelt, a number of documents contradict his version, the newspaper ac- count says. Various documents indicate the Church ill-Stalin meeting, coming at the height of Roosev- elt's 1944 campaign for re-elec- tion to an unprecedented fourth term, "aroused a furor at the While The Times says. Churchill requested that the then ambassador to Moscow, W. Averill Harriman, be asigncd to the meeting as an observer, the account said, and a message to Harriman from Roosevelt said the president "would have much prefered to have the next conference between the three of us. Harriman also was given a message to Stalin, the story says, dissociating the United States from any decisions reached at the Churchill-Stalin meeting. The article says a Roosevelt statement at the opening of the IMS Yalta conference that America did not plan to keep a large army in Europe after the war, was believed at the time to have surprised Churchill and be so indicated in his memoirs. But the declassified docu- ments show, the account adds, that as far back as November, 1944, Rosevelt and informed Churchill of his desire to "bring American troops home as rap- idly as transportation problems will permit" after the European war ended.
