The fund will also be used for a dinner for the needy to be given Christmas Day in con- junction with the Golden Mile Lodge. The army will also repeat its tradition of giving Sunshine Bags of candy to inmates at the jail, shut-ins, hospital pa- tients and senior citizens. Flaivs curb hurrahs, Pisko a delight Fair Ladv: enjoyable but less than best By JOAN BOWMAN Herald Entertainment Writer The tout between Lethbridge Musical Theatre and My -Fair Lady opened Monday night at the Yatcs Memorial Centre and proved to be a draw match. The show, one of the most massive undertakings by the all-amateur LMT, had too many flaws to elicit a full- voiced hurrah and too many choice parts not to make it en- joyable. The musical comedy, a sell- out for its entire 13-nighl run to Dec. 5, suffered essentially from length. Three hours de- manded too much o! the prin- ciples and the audience. Some scenes worked exceed- ingly well, notably al the Ascot races, which indicated top- notch inventiveness by director Dick Mells; others, such as at She Transylvania Embassy, lacked focus: The 1956 Lernef-Loewe mu- sical version of Shaw's 1914 Pygmaliou, My Fair Lady dwells on the painful evolution of a gutter-reared flowergirl into a full-blossomei! Wgh-so- ciety woman. The transformation is ham- mered out under the iron tute- lage of Henry Higgire, a wom- an hating phonetics professor who has a tape-recorder where a heart should be. Sheila Pisko as Eliza Doolit- tte, the gutter to grandeur joung girl, lias a tremendous- ly difficult role. She must make believable the wrangling slum child as well as the svelte so- cialite. And Mrs. Pisko obvious- ly has the goods. "Gaming" her way through the underworld, laboriously grappling with "haitehes" while being starved to death, Mrs. Pisko was a delight and a joy. In later scenes, she occa- sionally lapsed .into cockney and the first grating "aaaaooow" was merely dis- agreeable, not "disgustingly low." But she has mastered the tricky image change, and thus has a grasp on Eliza that poor little Audrey Hepburn, in the movie version, didn't. An equally tough role Is that of Higgins and in this Bill Matheson was not quite as suc- cessful. The part requires that a Ca- nadian speak nor only with an English accent, but with ex- quisitely modulated, faultless- ly-enunciated diction. Mr- Mattfeson's Higgins was not a man who has taken the Eng- lish language as a mistress. An engaging, hard-working actor, a non-singer who coped well with his many songs, Mr. Matheson came closest to the role when he showed Higgins' unwilling need of Eliza. Frank Featherstone as Al- fred P. Doolittle, father of Eliza and a slum-philosopher, dealt the show great injections of exuberance. All over the stage, a-quiver with vitality, he exploded, out to the audience in one dandy portrayal. And matching him was the chorus. LMT chorus may be defined, judging by My Fair Lady and past productions, as a group of secondary charac- ters 'who combined become a principal character. Good voices popping up all over; tucked-away asides; attentive- ness Lady has got itself another winner. Chet Wayne as Colonel Pick- ering, Higgin's long-suffering aide, was miscast in the role, a criticism seldom levelled at Mr. Molls' choices. Pickering is a military man, an old-fashioned gallant who offers a quiet place in the storm. Mr. Wayne was too small for the role and his clothes seemed to overwhelm him. Mr. Wayne's Pickering gave the impression of a man whose person has returned from India but whose thoughts are still in transit. Freddy Eynsford-HUl, Eliza's suitor, is a thankless role.

CONGREGATIONAL SINGING NO COUECTIONS CORRECTION The advertisement for Ihe "Italian Corner" which op- peered in Thursday, November 19th, lothbridgo Herald, picturing John Pictramala, and referring to him as "John Credico" was incorrect. Thfi person shown was, in fad, John Pieframala and Mr. CreAa. The Herald apologizes to Mr. Credko for any inconvenience caused him. may Indications are this year's sale of Eemembrance _ Day wreaths and poppies is going to fall short of last year's sales. Colin Campbell, manager of the General Stewart branch of (lie Royal Canadian Legion, said receipts to date exceed and there is more to come. He is hoping the received last year will be matched this year but has cer- tain reservations about hitting thai target. Some district points still have to ser.d in their money. Over the last !0 years sales have ranged from a low of 000 to last year's high, The poppy fund is an emer- jency fund managed by Mr. CampbeE and a Legion com- mittee, to assist needy vet- erans and dependents. The fund is used to assist all Allied ex-servicemen regard- less of which service or coun- try they served. They do not have to be Legion members. Poppy fund receipts and ex- penditures generally run about the same each year, Mr. Campbell said. If the fund gets low it is occasionally bolstered by a special Legion bingo. Receipts from the sale of poppies and wreaths last year totalled Expenditures included: for the wreaths and poppies, which as- sisted the disabled veterans from across Canada who made them; for campaign ex- penditures including delivery of the goods, stationery, post- age, advertising and a paid secretary; for veterans' and dependents' welfare; leav- ing a surplus. The emerjOTey welfare fund is used largely to provide "basic necessities" for vet- erans and dependents. The spent last year (the year ended Sept. 30, 1971) helped 110 families, 230 other individuals, provided about 30 Christmas food hampers for needy veterans and provided small cash gifts to Lethbridge and district needy veterans in local hospitals and the Col. Belcher veterans hospital in Calgary. Mr. Campbell has authority to provide assistance of up to Anything over that amount has to be approved by the poppy fund committee. Families assisted were from the city, district and a large number were transients. As- sistance as high as was given city and district resi- dents some to provide cloth- ing for veterans' children and some to make needed house repairs. Majority of the 230 individ- uals helped were of the transi- year eat nature. While the govern- ment provides a bed and meals the poppy fund provides some help in getting the ex-service- men closer to home. All applicants for assistance are investigated, Mr. Campbell said, and their needs assessed. The fund only provides emer- gency help. The average as- sistance runs to "The main assistance to transient ex-servicemen and their families is to get them out of town, closer to their homes, Mr. Campbell said. They may arrive here broke and without transportation. We get them on their way." In the last 10 years, he said, only two persons have ever re- turned the assistance given them. One was in the amount cf and another was for Administration of the poppy fund is under regulations of Command. The books are au- dited. Any refreshments or food provided the campaign com- mittee or workers is paid from branch funds. The poppy fund, a separate account, is used only for emergencies, he said.

One smaller very nice por- trayal was given by Joan Wa- terlield as Mrs. Higgins, Henry's wise-owl mother. What few lines Mrs. Waterfield had were weighed up and skilfully meted out. The play, as cut from the ori- ginal 18 to 10 scenes, calls for constant set changes and the twin-revolving stages, as de- vised by designer Ed Bayly, in- geniously fitted the bill. Any criticism of the sets must be laid at the design o! the Yates. The play needs flies: a b o v e-stage pulleys which could raise and lower flats quickly. Without them, parts of the set remained throughout the play, leading to visual dead spots. Costumes by Fran Bayly, es- pecially Eliza's ball gown were beautiful, although some of the men's outfits didn't fit a 1912 setting. One of the majir highlights of the show was the orchestra, conducted by Willie Mathis. And the ctereography of Mu- riel Jolliffe reached its peak in Get Me to the Church on Time. The biggest plus for My Fair Lady is that it had intimations of theatre magic, moments when it came close to provid- ing that indefinable communi- cation between audience and cast. And for an experience of that, three hours is time well spent. Your NEW Authorized Dealer JEEP" TRUCKS AND STATION WAGONS UNITED MOTORS CO. LTD. Cor. 3rd Ave., 3rd St. S.
