Though he says "My tongue is that apparently is what Robin Phillips hopes to do, starting this fall when he succeeds Jean Gascon as artistic director of the festival company at Stratford, Ont. Phillips, whose appointment. created a furor because the job didn't go to a Canadian, was here this week to talk to the Canada Council and others about the future of the Stratford Festival after it concludes its 22nd season late in October. He drove back to Stratford, preparing for his first meeting later this week with the festi- val's planning committee, when a 1974-75 winter tour in Canada will be discussed. During the past two winters, the Stratford players have won enthusiastic audiences and Australia. The next two winters will be spent touring Canada, east and west. At the moment, Phillips said in an interview, he doesn't want to stir up any more controversy about his appointment, or talk about specific plans for the company.

CONTACT PLEASUKPOOLKPTOMY Afiert Davy or He is spending from now until October feeling his way about Canada, not on a talent search, but getting to know more about Canadian theatre, its people, and the people of the country generally. Is this a prelude to more cross-country travel by the Stratford theatre? "Certainly in the nexttwo years they will be touring he said. "They won't be going abroad. "Stratford is a big operation, and it has a lot to offer back to Canada, not only from a superior, generous position but they don't, they are not going to get anything back." The country has put a lot into Stratford: Almost million in federal tax money through the Canada Council alone in the last four years. Second only to the National Ballet, Stratford is the biggest recipient of arts subsidies from the council. Phillips tends-to speak of the Stratford company as rather than because Gascon is still.in charge. Phillips won't begin to direct until after the coming summer festival closes. LEARNED IN LONDON Phillips learned the in- tricacies of directing and theatre administration in the Royal Shakespeare Theatre, the Bristol Old Vic, the Chichester Festival and the Greenwhich Theatre, as well as in experiences on Broadway and in London's West End. Phillips, still in his early 30s, says his mandate as artistic director seems to be, as broad as he wants it to be, but the first test will come when he goes before the Stratford Festival board with his 1974-75 plans., Stratford's main emphasis on the repertoire of Shakespeare, and plays of that be he said. He also has some fresh thoughts about the manner in which Shakespeare might be presented to school audiences. At Exeter, England, Phillips developed a new technique for school audiences, bringing a few students on to the stage to work with actors in demonstrating how a Shakespeare play is analysed and staged. He's not saying yet that he will do that at Stratford, but his enthusiasm for interesting students in the theatre is in- fectious. Youngsters view their own move ATLANTA, Ga. (AP) Youngsters from the cast of Conrack wriggled, giggled, squealed, guffawed, nudged and snickered through the film's world premiere. Twenty-one Brunswick. Ga., schoolchildren ranging in age from 11 to 16 viewed their screen debut yesterday with a mixture of reverence and high glee. "No applause, one minced with a mock bow as the movie began. Nevertheless, when the audience gave them a standing ovation at the end, many of the kids clapped, too. They portray a group of poor and virtually illiterate students on a remote South Carolina island. Jon Voight is the idealistic schoolteacher who teaches them self-respect and wakes them up to the modern world. Based on a true story by Atlanta author Pat Conroy.

Encourages others to persue field Ex- teacher film wri ter LOS ANGELES (AP) Un- published writers who despair of making the big time, con- sider the case of Darryl Po-. nicsan. Five years ago he was teaching rich kids at a school in the Los Angeles suburb of La Canada. Today he is being paid to see Tom Mix movies. Then he'll write a biographical novel and a movie script about the cow- boy star. Ponicsan's pay- ment: Last month he had an inter- ruption in his movie-going; he was called for jury duty. "It doesn't bother said the 35-year-old Ponicsan. nice thing about being a writer'is that nothing is wasted. I'm hoping I'll get as- signed to a good case that will give me material for a book." Few writers have pursued their careers as calculatedly. Faced with the draft at 24, he chose to enlist in the navy. His reasoning: "From Here to Eternity had already been written, so there was no sense in looking to the army for literary material. Nobody had written a good novel about the navy, at least from the enlisted man's view." WROTE TWO MOVIES The results of his research can currently be seen on the movie screens. His novel, The Last Detail, was filmed with Jack Nicholson as star. James Caan appears in Cinderella Liberty, which Ponicsan DONATE NIKITA TAPES NEW YORK (AP) Time Inc. has announced it has given 180 hours of tape recordings of former Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev's voice to Columbia University's oral history collection. About half the tapes were the basis for, the book Khrushchev Remembers, published in 1970. The remainder came into Time's possession after publication of the book and will be included in a second book. Khrushchev Remembers: The Last Testament adapted for the screen from another of his novels. The Ponicsan story began in Shenendoah, Pa., where his father operated a car parts business. Darryl went to col- lege and took a teaching job in upstate New York while studying for his master's de- gree. Then came the navy. Ponicsan continued writing after his 3% years in the navy but made a total of which a literary quarterly paid for a short story. He came to Los Angeles and took jobs as a welfare worker and a teacher. "In the summer of 1969, I was determined to find out whether I had the discipline to become a writer. I set a schedule for in the morning until 12 I worked at a desk in the base- ment of my house. I started pulling out old short stories, and The Last Detail was one of them. It began getting longer and longer and it turned into a novel." He sold it to a publisher and Columbia bought the film rights.
