It has been calculated that 1C they aU stood in line, it would stretch from the Ambas- I sador's to Aberdeen, a distance of 524 miles. Its author, who recently cele- brated her Will birthday, ap- pears just as baffled as evcry- ic else by its self-perpetnatiiij into a stage play, she said if it made any money it would go into a trust for her grandson, then seven.

Critics and theatre buffs have Ivied many times to analyse The Mousetrap's grip on the public.

That was more raised flnd lowered times; the ward- robe mistress has ironed 33 miles of shirts. Christie fans re- turn at. intervals of a few years, when they have forgotten who the murderer was, bringing their children or even their grandchildren. Critic Maurice Richardson of The Sunday Times said al- though the play now seems dated to him, and slow to gain pace at the beginning, the first- act curtain, when the stage gees black and the victim is mur- dered, remains "infallibly com- pulsive."

Magistrate Fred Thurgood adjourned the case against the Calgary man who is charged with violating the Alberta Gov- ernment Telecommunications Act by using abusive language over the telephone. A decision is to be given Nov. 30. Testimony from the recipient of a teleplione call said that Mr. Stanimirovic telephoned him and, speaking in Serbo- Croatian, called him a Com- munist and mad.e disparaging remarks about the man's church. Mr. Stanimirovic testified that he did telephone the man to complain that h? had been overcharged ior some help given him but he denied call- ing the man a Communist.
