Lethbridge constituency By PAT ORCHARD l.iniia Flitton sang to a near capacity audience al the Vates Memorial Centre iast night, Listening to this varied, af- fable programme was a most' rewarding experience as she addressed herself, not to an audience, but rather to a circle of friends. DEMANDING The program began with a performance of Mozart's Alle- luia. This is a most demanding piece of music and it was here that signs of nervousness were much in evidence. That caused her to sharpen in the higher register and make an elegant skim over some of the alleluias rather than sustaining a long- line throughout the phrase. There was the occasional un controlled vibrato but her pin1-1 ity of tone and perfect Uicticr. soon captivated ear and mind at once as she warmed up to her next selection, of classical art songs by the French com- poser These soitgs were sung not only with faultless style and execution, but with a sustained amber quality that is quite un- forgettable. Her voice exerts a quiet, potent charm as she goes on to sing an Kalian Love Song which was immediately follow- ed by the aria Je Vcux Vivrc from Romeo and Juliette. astonished me was not so much the skill of the per- formance, but i (he extraordin- ary depth of feeling in so much of it. She had little trouble pro- jecting her voice above the stave and even firing it away ;or pianissimo effects. Miss Flitton 'vent on to dis- play a marvellous kaleidoscope )t 'emotions in her Spanish .jongs by Ravel and Rcdrigo and [hen treated us to an aria from Meyerbeen's opera LeaN o r a. This aria showed off the gym- nastic capabilities of her voice wliich can be heavy at timss yet capable of deliver! ng col- oratura with the speed and ac- curacy of the canaries. A beautiful example of sus- tained interpretation. Miss Flit- ton and her accompanist have a strong and intimate artistic rapport. Having onchanged us with her selection of classical songs and so as not to bo bitten by this virulent bug, she then goes on are Kieth Hancock. Social Credit, canvassing in Lclhbridge to- night.

Vlaiiagerneiit seminar s planned A two-day seminar smooth relations betwe nanagement and its personn s slated for the Lethbrid Community College, Oct. 27 an 28. Sponsored by the Lethbrid Construction Association, 11 heme of the seminar is super- visory management leadership skills. Bub McAlister, of LCC who recently obtained a masters de- gree in personnel will be the keynote speaker. Two main topics will he dis- cussed at the seminar: the na- ture of management and tha leadership skills involved, and improving communications and motivating employees. The seminar is open to any- one in management or lead- ership positions. It costs in- cluding supper. Anyone wishing further infor- mation is asked to contact the I school of continuing education! at LCC. :o explore a wealth of material in some lighter folk songs such as Down by the Sally Darlin, a Betsy from Pike, and a beautiful rendition of Aaron Copland's Ghing-A-Huig- Ching-Chaw. Tlw latter was made to pos- itively sparkle and effervesce. But then Miss 1'Millon skillfully took the gleam out of her voice as she sang her next two num- bers which were Negro spiritu- als. Nothing was exaggerated, yet there was sentiment in every phrase. This concluded the first half of the program. Like all great performers Miss Flitton has the ability and the talent to change and keep up with the younger generation while at the same time pleas ing older people. Consequently she chose some folk songs in the middle beat categoric for the sec- md half of the programme. Her ather accompanied her as she sang one of Anne Murray's songs. The mood was gentle and quiet and Mr. Flit- ion had the master touch in music such as this. The audience showed its ap- preciation when Miss Flitton and her father treated us lo an instrumental duet on Ihe banjo and guitar. The selection could hardly have been belter, rang- ing in breadth of repertory from modern folk song to rag. time. The evening concluded with some Broadway Musicals. Once again Miss Flitlon weaved her own quiet spell on an already captivated audience as she Im bucd her songs with sentiment and impeccable in- crpretution. It was so refreshing to have a singer of this calibre doing light music with as much eavoire faire as her classical GENEROUS She also bad so generous a selection in her repertoire. Needless lo say, the audience gave her a stand- ing ovation. Miss Flitton is still young and shows tremendous promise with the possibility of becoming a great artist amongst some of the top entertainers. Her charm, enhanced by her ability lo exude warmth, radiance and her own deep feeling for hu- manity made last night a mem- orable experience. Maura K. Wedge replaces Marlowe in city musical The Lethbridge Musical The- atre today announced that it Constance Teskey, 82, Jack Barclay, 90, enjoy lodge life has released Jlarion Marlowe from an agreement to play Al- denza in its forthcoming pro- duction of "The Man from La Mancha" because of health rea- sons. She is being replaced by actress Maura K. Wedge. Jack Warburton, publicity director for LMT, said it was regrettable for both parties that Miss Marlowe is unable to per- orm in the city but that Leth >ridge Musical Theatre's "ini ial disappointment has been al- eviated by being able to secure Miss Wedge."

Residents living at two Leth- senior citizens homes are furious over stories publish- ed in The Herald which stated that their lives are regimented. To the person, every senior citizen denied their liberties were infringed upon. "We can do what we want, when we want and where we said one M-year-old pen- sioner. The only semblance of regim- entation, which The Herald's thres-part interview scries quot- ed, were dinner hours. 1 This, ths pensioners at the l homes said, compares to the normal set (lining hours by most Canadian families. "A home away from home" and ''belter than the quaint, but small English ho- tels" were descriptions ap- plied to the modern senior citi zens home. Modern publically-Fimded se- nior citizens homes are "the best thing that ever happenet for the aged." It has been more than two .ecades since any of the so- alled regimented homes out- ined in The Herald seines have existed in this province, claim- ed one official in charge of both edges. "The government has lo that." And the pensioners were also unanimous in saying that the xnnes were the best possible deal for the cost to them. Their rents all range below per month. Included in the price is everything except per- sonal laundry care. Also in the package deal are various forms of recreation, in- cluding countryside excursions.

A cduple of elderly men lev- led minor complaints about their life styles in the homes but said they wouldn't move out. Those living in the homes said the money they received was but added that those not living in homes need- ed substantially more. However, an acute shortage of homes and self-contained suites for the aged exists, there- by causing incalculable hard- ships for many senior citizeas. All pleaded for politicians at all levels lo try to obtain betler accommodation and more mon- ey for Ihe aged. Pensioners at the two homes were "pvoud" to be paying for their keep.
