The cubs, born a month ago, are fed milk and cereal and will be kept in the nursery for some time before being transferred to the public display area._ Alcoholic consumption rise in Italy worries officials Drama group tours Arctic outposts Citadel-Oil-Wheels takes to the air By GLENNIS ZILM EDMONTON (CP) - Cita-del-On-Wheels, Edmonton's travelling drama productions for schools, took to the air this winter and became-for a week-Citadel-On-Wings. "We toured the Arctic out-posts of Coppermine, Holman Island, Cambridge Bay, Gjoa Haven, Spence Bay and Peily Bay in toe Northwest Territories," said Karen Austin, one of the actresses with the company, in an interview on her return. "We also put on performances in Yellow knife at the end of the tour." It was a return trip to Yeilowknife for the company. They had performed there last year as part of a tour up the Mackenzie River valley as a gift to the Northwest Territories Centennial by the city of Edmonton. But the tour proved so successful the territorial government invited them back this year, Miss Austin said. For her, the1 warmth and affection of the Eskimo children was the highlight of the tour. "They are so open.and affectionate. They want to be near you, to touch you, to cling." She said she noticed this was true for the men in the company as well as the women. "They couldn't resist getting drawn into playing with them. Imagine complete strangers coming into a community and being received like that. We were touched." Three actors' and two actresses were accompanied on the tour by director Irene Watts and a stage manager. The trip, in a chartered DC-3, was not without excit-ment, Miss Austin said. When the company was circling to land at Spence Bay, 1,300 miles north of Winnipeg, the landing gear wouldn't come down. "It was caught up by a piece of cable-the pilot could lean out and see it," she said. "So he eventually leaned out and fired three shots and snapped the cable. . "And the gear came down and we landed!" She said the pilot didn't seem to think anything of it. "But it was certainly a bit of exdtment for us." PLAYED SUNBEAM The 29-yetr-oW Mioo Austin -ehe loob 10 years younger, with her long brown hair, mobile face and shining eyes-played the story-teller in both the plays the group put on. She found the Eskimo children most creative and spontaneous. During the plays the children were asked to participate in certain ways. "One place, we asked them to be sunbeams," she said. "One little boy, with his expression and tension in each muscle, put on a magnificent performance." She performed a little mime of a sunbeam, patterned on his-and radiated warmth. "You could work with children in drama classes for a long time and never achieve what be produced spontaneously and naturally." ( The group stayed mainly with two of the three plays they bad chosen for this tour, she said. HAD TO FLY ON One, A Dream of Sky People, is based on the lajtnd of creation and uses the familiar Eskimo figures of the Raven, Caribou and Lynx. The other, The Beast in a Bag, is selected for young au- d i e n c e s. However, Citadel often found itself playing to the whole community when they could only manage one performance and had to fly on again in order to get back to an overnight stop hundreds of miles away. "But we enjoyed ourselves hugely. And the performances were some of the most rewarding I've done."

IN YOUR LETHBRIDGE HERALD WEEKEND MAGAZINE By PATRICK CKEEFE ROME (AP) - Italian authorities are concerned by a sharp rise in alcoholic consumption in this Latin land with a tradition of moderate drinking habits. Italians have always consumed wine with their meals, and perhaps a glass or two more around a card game at Bight. But hard liquor was mainly the drink, of foreigners -and a few Italians who took to it abroad. More money, advertising and perhaps the example of whisky-drinking tourists have changed that in recent years. Sales of scotch, says one liquor distributor here, are skyrocketing. "We sold 20 per cent more last year than the year before," be says. The distributor added: "The taste for whisky is spreading. It has become the snob drink. And better wages give Italians the money to buy it." The health ministry has set up an 11-man commission to compile statistics on alcoholism end explore ways of holding it down. Despite the ministry's fears, Italians are still modest drinkers compared with their European cousins in colder climates. The cocktail lunch is unheard of. And the best sellers in bars are still coffee, fruit juices and a mild and bitter alcoholic drink with soda.' Intoxication is seldom seen in Italy, but statistics show that hard drinking is on the rise. In 1967, Ialy- imported .204,670 gallons of hard liquor. In the first 10 months of 1970 the figure was 1,805,700 gallons. Consumption of wine and beer has gone up sharply too. A sadder tale is told by hospitals and clinics. They report a notable rise in the death rate caused by cirrhosis of the liver -a common killer of alcoholics -in the last decade. In 1955, the disease killed 13 out of every 100,000 Italians. Eleven years later it killed 25 for every 100,000. RESPECT FREEDOM The health ministry has promised that its campaign to counter heavy drinking will be carried out "with full respect for individual freedom." This appears to mean the Oddities in the News ministry will not resort to prohibition or changes in Italy's liberal licensing laws. A short-lived restriction in downtown Rome-carried out by one police station-drew angry outbursts from bar owners and newspapers. Police tried for a few days to enforce an old law that prohibits bars from serving alcohol after 10 p.m. But authorities promptly but a stop to the ban. The health ministry committee is expected to concentrate first on compiling more statistics on the problem, and then on an advertising drive to warn Italians that hard drinking and long living don't usually mix.
