wedneaday, October THE UTHBRIQGE HERALD 7 Will arts centre, theatre be Centennial projects? CALGARY (CP) -Thecen- tennial of the North-West Mounted Police founding of Fort Calgary, the fore-runner of this lively southern Alberta city, will be observed next year with a burst of activity in the performing arts. And since, for the last dec- ade, centennials in Canada seem to have been observed by building new arts centres, talk of a new theatre or cluster of stages and concert halls is already rife. Calgary and Edmonton have twin Jubilee auditoriums, built by the provincial govern- ment to celebrate the forma- tion of Alberta. But the auditorium seats more than too large for anything smaller than a full symphony concert or one-night stand by an international star. Theatre Calgary, now in its seventh season, seats 490 in a converted tractor warehouse, but would like a new building, properly-constructed for F.O.E.

Harold Baldridge, artistic director of Theatre Calgary, said in an interview the quarters are adequate for the present and he has a five-year lease on them but he would like more-flexible, studio- style space in which Theatre Calgary could develop. Baldridge said other per- forming groups in the city also are looking for new symphony would like quarters for recitals and chamber music concerts, and the Southern Alberta Opera Association would like facilities of more manage- able size than the auditorium. The various groups are talk- ing up the new project in the city's arts council. They hope some agreement might be reached and an announcement made by a sponsor next year in Calgary's centennial. "It would be nice to have new quarters for Theatre Calgary's 10th anniversary season three years from Baldridge said. "It's in the talk stage now, of course, but we are dreaming and hoping." One of Baldridge's am- bitions is to establish a youth theatre in association with Theatre Calgary. He en- visages 30 or 40 young Calgarians into a group to write and produce skits and short plays for the centennial. Theatre Calgary already has a profesional group which tours Calgary and Southern Alberta schools. Gallery displays Eskimo carvings Headed for stardom Patrick Wayne, the son of veteran film star John Wayne, looks for the person who shot a cub bear in a scene from his latest movie "The Bears and I." Pat says television commercials have helped his acting career. Arts support lack rapped WINNIPEG (CP) There may be more in Eskimo carv- ings than meets the eye. Marsha Twomey is a young worker at the Winnipeg Art Gallery who has been devising ways to catalogue its more- than carvings. The largest part of the collection, the largest in the country, was given to the gallery by Miss Twomey's father, botanist J. F. Twomey. By working so closely with the ivory and soapstone carv- ings. Miss Twomey has devel- oped a strong insight into Es- kimo art. The Winnipeg gallery cur- rently has on public display a special selection on the Twomey collection, called Swimming Forms. The ele- ment that draws the works together is that each piece supposes the existence of a water line. The pieces depict Eskimo huntsmen with kayaks, seals, bears, and waterfowl floating on the open ocean, or emerging from it Miss Twomey said in an interview that WINNIPEG (CP) On the eve of civic elections, municipal and provincial politicians were rapped by members of the Canada Coun- cil and the local arts com- munity for lack of local government support for the arts. Brian Flemming of Halifax, acting chairman of the federally appointed council, told a public meeting that the arts funding agency met provincial and Winnipeg city leaders Monday and were told the politicians see little merit in spending city or provincial money on artistic activities. Civic elections are being held today. Mr Flemming said the Canada council, here on a week long tour of Manitoba and Saskatchewan, conferred with Rene Toupin, Manitoba minister of health and social development, and several other ministers.

Mr. Trudeau's office con- firmed Friday that the prime minister had set Oct. 30 as the date for the meeting, designed to find a co-operative means of tackling the major economic issues confronting the entire nation. Premier Ed Schreyer of Manitoba said Monday he welcomed the decision of the prime minister, especially since the next official conference between provin- cial government beads and Mr. Trudeau was not schedul- ed until early next year, after the federal budget has been brought down. NORTH ISLAND POPULAR Of the two islands that form New Zealand, South Island is the larger. But 70 per cent of New Zeaianders live and work on North Island, which has more than two-thirds of the countries industries. Premier Dave Barrett of British Columbia thanked Mr Trudeau for calling the conference and added: "He's changing bis mind and that's the sign of a good politician." The prime minister had said last month in Calgary that such a meeting was pointless.
