CBC to cut ads aimed at children OTTAWA (CP) The CBC plans to remove all advertising from television programs aimed at children, corporation Presi- dent Laurent Picard said Fri- day. Mr. Picard told the Commons broadcasting committee that the CBC will ask Parliament for extra million to million to pay for the move. If the money is forthcoming, the advertising could be gone by September, 1974, he said. DIETRICH DENTURE CUNIC ROSS A. HOSACK Ctrtiffed Mechanic 5th St. S. Ph. 327-7244 He explained that the million includes about mil- lion to make up for lost revenue white the rest would pay for the cost of producing material to fill the spots left by the com- mercials. The committee was consid- ering a bill introduced by James McGrath John's East) to remove all ad- vertising from children's tele- vision programs. Mr. McGrath said the CBC announcement was "a major breakthrough."

Mr. Picard explained that the main problems in a total ban on commercials are the corpo- ration's responsibilities to its clients and the possible effects on its affiliate stations. He said that while children's programs on the network itself will be commercial-free, the af- filiate stations will be able to time their commercials between the programs. They would not be able to schedule advertising within the body of the program, however. The ban will affect about 600 paramount cinema hours of children's programm- ing annually. Mr. Picard said that the body of research concerning the ef- fects of advertising on children was but the CBC feels that "public concern seems to be a bigger element than research." Questioned by committee members as to the effects of such a ban on Canadians work- ing in the fisld of television commercial production, Mr'. Pi- card said the result would likely provide more jobs. Personnel would be needed to produce educational and public service material to fill the gaps. STARTS MONDAY At and p.m. Watch outl HAMMERSMITH, is out.

ERNEST BROWN 'PIONEER PHOTOGRAPHER' A film on the life and times of Ernest Brown, one of the most noted photographers to record the early his- tory of our province, will be shown at the YATES MEMORIAL CENTRE THURSDAY, JUNE 21, 1973 8 p.m. Tickets for this showing may be obtained from the Canadian Western Natural Gas Company office at no charge. The film Is approximately one hour In length which will followed by light refreshments. your tickets early all seats reserved OTTAWA (CP) Romeo touches Juliet's hand, their hands slide fervently into a palm-to-palm grasp and he kis- ses her tenderly on the lips. Thus begins perhaps the greatest story of love at first sight in all English literature, and the poetry of Shakespeare's play has inspired many an erotic iinterpretation on the stage and in opera, ballet, and concert music. A new Canadian ballet, Star- Cross'd, as Shakespeare called the lovers, will open here July 7 and run for seven performances in Festival Canada at the Na- tional Arts Centre. Choreographed by Brian Mac- donald of Montreal and New York, it stars his wife, Swedish star Annette av Paul as Juliet, and Lawrence Rhodes of Phila- delphia, as Romeo. Lois Smith of Toronto is ballet mistress and will play Lady Capulet, Ju- liet's mother. Music is by Harry Freedman of Toronto, but in this produc- tion, Macdonald said in an in- terview, much of the ballet will be danced to the "music" of Shakespeare's words alone. Such as the pas de deux, as Romeo and Juliet first meet, touch and kiss. ASSEMBLED 16 DANCERS Mr. Macdonald, whose first hit was My Fur Lady in the late 1950s, has assembled 16 dancers from various ballet companies, including the National Ballet of Canada and Les Grandes Bal- lets Cartadienes. Elaborate Italian Renaissance costumes have been designed by Maxime Graham for Star- Cross'd. Freedman's music, supplementing the recorded spoken text, is also in Renais- sance style, employing viols, recorders, viola da gambas and similar old instruments. But the stage set is to be sparse, set against plain black backdrop curtains. The set con- sists of three 18-foot tall sculp- tured panels inspired by para- bolic shapes. A smaller, 12-foot tall panel will be employed for the Romeo-Juliet balcony scene. The panels can be moved about the stage to suggest a gothic banqueting hall, a tomb, or any- thing else needed for the story. Star Crossd will run about 70 minutes. Two shorter ballets will fill out the evening, both new. They are Songs for Dark Voice, by Brydon Paige, to mu- sic by Harry Somers which the National Arts Centre Orchestra recorded with Maureen Forres- ter for its first stereo long-play, and Several Occasions, also choreographed by Macdonald with music by Johan Sebastian Bach and Harry Freedman. SPECTACULAR COMET SIGHT OF LIFETIME canaoian uuesiern naruraLoas companv LONDON (Reuter) A comet that could rival the full moon for brightness is heading toward earth, promising the ce- lestial sight of a lifetime. Preliminary estimates are that Comet Kohoutek will shine 10 times brighter than any of its recorded predecessors and fill a sixth of the southern sky at the end of this year. It is 63 years since Halleys comet, hitherto the most brilliant, paid its last visit to our skies. I reappears in 1986. Yet, in contrast to the well- established pattern of Halley's comet, named after English as- tronomer Edmund Halley, who foretold its reappearance in 1682, the new giant was spotted for the first time only last March 7. Its discoverer was Lubos Kohoutek of the Hamburg Ob- servatory, West Germany. All comets are named after their discoverers. SEEN AS DOT He was searching at the time for a minor planet. What he saw when he examined his find- ings was a tiny dot on the very edge of two photographic plates. It lay 450 million miles from the sun. By the time the moon wined and fresh photographs were possible, the dot had grown into a much larger blob. Later tracking by observatories in the United States, Japan and Brit- ain confirmed that it was in- deed a comet. If it had ap- peared in these parts before, it must have been before recorded history. Calculations indicate it should blossom into a spectacular dis- play between November and February. The origin of comets Is not known for certain. Some ex- perts believe there are hun- dreds of millions of them spin- ning beyond the orbit of Pluto, the outermost planet of our so- lar system.
