Wednesday, Randy Holfeld, ity engineering director, moved that the commission go c-hind closed dcors, at Mr. Hel- on's request, to discuss an ap- lication by Glen Little Con- truction to build a cash and arry wholesale warehouse at 03 3rd Avc. S. The motion was defeated the application omitlered >penly. Mr. Holfeld and Oli s, city utilities director, 'oted in favor of closing the discussion. Aldermen BiU Ker- ;an find Ed Basterto were igainst and Bob Bartlett, city community services director, abstained "so the motion woulo )e defeated." The commission refused to allow construction of the ware- wuse at the proposed site be- cause the property is in the area recommended for phase two of urban redevelopment. Home and Pitfieid had a si milai" warehouse built in tin present downtown redevelop- ment area last year, only to out by the city and told to vacate by November 1D73. A 'spokesman for Glen Litll< Construction said a verba agreement was reached las year between Home and Pil field and the city manager that the proposed site could be developed as a warehouse. Mr. Helton suggested such a agreement, even if hi writing would not be binding on th MFC, that the commission need consider the appliealior cr.ly as it pertains to zoning i the area. He said it is doubtful if th proposed warehouse could I accommodated anywhere 1 tiie s e c o n d redevelopmei i stage area, west of 5th St. between 4th Avc, and 1st Ave but that there are locations the city zoned for such use. the Native Friendship Society Southern Alberta to establish friendship centre at 809 6th 'e. S. Tlie commission heard ob- ctions to the establishment of e centre from a spokesman r residents on Ihe south side 6th Ave. S. between 8lh and h St. Mrs. Eva MacLean. 814 6tK ve., said she has been fa- iliar with the property and ouse being sought by the so- ety since 190R, the date her ouse was built, and that the ouse being considered for a centre was suitable illy for residential purposes. Tiie society will lie allowed to use the city-owned house only or office space. Mrs. Rose then went on to stag a medley of French songs by the composers Faure, Chausson and Duparc. One could not really fault her pronunciations, even though she inevitably invites comparisons with na- tive singers, and even Eng- lish singers of a previous generation. Although the rhythms were occasionally somewhat choppy, she con- veyed the lachrymose qual- ity, which was never far be- neath the surface of this mu- sic. The highlights of the eve- ning were the operatic arias by Ponchinelli and Thomas. Mrs. Rose sang with a high- ly dramatic style, with the right sort of dark fury in the timbre, but not the ugliness of tone, forcing or unsteadi- ness that we politely charac- terize as dramatic. I fell her voice suited these songs better than the lighter quality she commanded in Uie earlier numbers. These were followed by two. of Brahms' songs. Mrs. Rose was accompanied by Robert, Sutherland on the viola, Mr. Searchfield on the pi-.< ano. Mr. Searchfield did not rise to anything more than; the simplest response to general mood, of the song, while Mr. Sutherland was risibly incompetent. Mrs. Rose stayed in full in- terpretative command, but a little more could have been added in the way of Brahm- sian profundity. The latter half of the pro- gram included songs by Vaughan Williams, three Hebridian songs and an Irish folk melody. My only reser- vation with this group was (he accompaniment during Ihe Water Mill Song. This was one of Vaughan Wil- liams' favorite compositions, and should have shown the composer on happy terms with an instrument for which he did not much care, However, the delightful rip- pling quality of the accom- paniment was not forthcom- ing. The New Ghost was a pro- foundly moving poem, and finely performed by the duo. The Hebridian Songs showed the artist at her best. These were sung with the simple delivery that concealed all the lime and effort that must have gone into achieving it. This was an impeccable in- terpretation of a fine group of songs. The enthusiastic plaudits of the audience were amply rewarded by a delightful encore. The program was particu- larity well chosen, full of contrasts of mood, and inter- spersed with harpsichord, pi- ano and viola accompani- ments. One rarely comes across on artist ready to tackle this repertory, and we hope that Mrs. Rose will be invited to perform, again.
