Mark Phillips will see a magnificent and spectacular ceremony Wednesday. But viewers might not be able to see all the details which they tuned in specially to watch. For the couple will not be facing the television cameras during the ceremony. Viewers will not be able to see Anne's face as Mark slips the wedding ring on her finger. And they will see only the back of her head as she repeats the marriage vows. Only per- and close clergy and at- the crowd- ed into Westminster Abbey will be facing the couple. This is in line with the royal wish that parts of the service be preserved as a private af- fair for the couple and close family. The BBC estimates the worldwide audience for the wedding at about 580 million. It is sending live coverage to the United States and 10 European Australia and Japan. Preparations for the wedding moved into high gear today with a full-scale technical rehearsal in the abbey Stand-ins were acting for Anne and Mark who will have a private rehearsal Tuesday.

By BEVERLY PETERSON VANCOUVER Richard Ouzounian's name isn't exactly synonymous with theatre on the West Coast although he's written or produced eight plays during the last two years and has drawn both warm praise and heated criticism from the mercurial Vancouver critics. But audiences are slowly beginning 'to recognize the even pronounce it. Give them time. Richard Ou- zounian is only 23.

The Klondike '73 Canoe an unlikely ataort- meat of beer-drinking paddlert and overweight is probably the only expedition that over tackled the wild Yukon River country armed with nothing but a 1Mb cen- tury cannon. The 12 pounder came to this territorial community of MO courtesy of the Canadian Armed which also supplied a gun crew decked out in vintage uniforms more in keeping jritb the Battle of Austerlitz than the northern bush country. In compliance with govern- ment parks the soldiers checked their 20th- century arms for the duration of the 17 day trip from to Dawson a distance of 650 miles. the cannon constituted the 65 member expedition's sole means of defence not that any heavy artillery was needed. The cannon generally followed along behind the river travellers aboard a helicopter. And the gun crew didn't have any shot for it in any event. The canoe pageant was organized by the territorial government as the premiere event of festivities com- memorating the 75th anniver- sary of the 1898 Klondike Gold Rush. The expedition retraced the gold rush route by climb- ing the Chilkoot then travelling 600 miles down the river in a fleet of canoes and flat bottomed support boats. There were 35 canoeist divided into teams of six paddlers and a spare representing the Northwest British Alaska and Washington state. The canoeists competed for in prize money in a series of sprint races held at com- munities along the river system The expedition also included a Canadian forces support unit from which set up camps along the supplied the food and kept the beer and a press con- tingent that sailed under a flag on which was printed Personnel The gun crew fired the big cannon to start each of the sprint races of a complicated loading procedure which makes one wonder how people ever found the time to fight wars in the 1800s.
