Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 3, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 6 LETHBRIDGE HERALD Tutsday, September 3, 1974 Old ritual marks totem pole finish SPOKANE, Wash. (CP) Ka Win Cheelth appeared on the top of the stone wall, wrists and forehead bound with green sprigs of fir. He uttered a strange cry and leaped down, dancing to the hollow rhythm of wooden drums. Unexpectedly, as if in pursuit, two masked birds appeared behind the wall, waving and clacking their long curved beaks. Ka Win Cheelth-or Joe Davie, as he is known outside his Indian per- forming an ancient ritual, the raising of the totem pole he had carved and the comple- tion of his initiation into the secret Hamatsa Society of Vancouver Island. He had been commissioned by the British Columbia pavilion at Expo 74 to perform the rite on Canada Island Tnursday, the second of four Canada day at the fair. The pule will remain on the four- "Te island permanently. The Hamatsa Society, Davie explained in an inter- view before the ceremony, is a special group of dancers. "A mythical figure of the head of the society has the power to capture people and make them cannibals." FUNCTIONS IN FAMILY The carving and pole- raising ceremony "bring the cancer back to his senses so he can function in his family, the village." "In the old days on the east coast of Vancouver Island the whole ceremony was drama-, tized and the Indians would use corpses, chew on their flesh. But it (the legend) is not from a group of people who went out hunting heads." After his initiation, Davie, a Clayoquot originally from the Tofino area of Vancouver Island, has the right to dance his Hamatsa dance whenever the society has a ceremony. His Indian name means white wolf transformed into killer whale, and he has carv- ed this animal as the main character on his totem pole.

National Museum of Man items reflect modern ways of life By ALAN FREEMAN OTTAWA (CP) "I'm try- ing to convince Canadians that culture doesn't consist only of high art and what is said Steve Beckow, as he stood in front of a 12 foot high shelf of supermarket products. The shelf is lined with Seal- test milk cartons, Yucca-dew shampoo bottles and Nabisco CAREERS REQUIRED COOKS and DISHWASHERS Apply at- HEIDELBERG INN 1303 Mayor Magrath Drive THE WORLD ALMANAC BOOK OF FACTS 1974 Shredded Wheat boxes. But this is not an everyday super- market. It is the warehouse of the National Museum of Man and the products are part of the history division's collec- tion. Mr. Beckow, a cultural his- torian at the museum, started collecting these products a year ago. The project is called Tomorrow's History. Retail products reflect the way of life that produces them, he said. For that rea- son, the history division has long been collecting cigarette tins, patent medicines and point-of-purchase displays of the 19th and early 20th cen- turies. The museum recently pur- chased a assort- ment of retail products from a Toronto collector. "it cost us an arm and a said Mr. Beckow, who declined to reveal the price paid. It includes six Coca-Cola bottles in "a wood container dating from 1917. Mr. Beckow thinks it is a good idea to start collecting current retail items to avoid ever higher prices in the fu- ture. What interests him in par- ticular are products of a re- gional nature, such as Tema- gami Dry Ginger Ale, Edmon- ton Only detergent and Keefe's eggs from Conception Bay, Nfld. "We have people across the country who save their gar- he said. These collec- tors keep the containers in good condition and send them to the museum in Ottawa. Mr. Beckow also solicits products directly from com- panies. Kimberly-Clark of Canada Ltd. recently donated the original advertising for their Kleenex Canadiana Col- lection. In addition, the 28- year-old historian has a 000-a-year acquisitions budget. "At Christmas time we knew there was going to be a shortage of he said, "so we took and bought up as many products as we could. We don't take a chance when something is an endan- gered species." One threatened product Mr. Beckow managed to save recently was a set of Wnip- per's soft-drink bottles from the 1940s. The bottles feature the imposing physique of On- tario wrestler Whipper Billy Watson and the cery and Bar Arm Hold. FOUND IN STORAGE The beverage was produced in Toronto and retrieved from a warehouse about to be demolished. Despite limitations of space, Steve Beckow con- tinues to collect. He hopes to catalogue the items he has acquired in the last year but budget constraints have not permitted him to do so. Mr. Beckow admitted that his collection has its critics. "I'm sure historians within the university would look ask- ance at this sort of collec- tion." he said, "but I would argue that they don't have a wide enough historical sense."

Box 670, Lethbndge Only By DEV MURARKA London Observer MOSCOW The Er- molenko Affair is only the latest in a series of incidents in which artists and musicians have either defected or left the Soviet Union after obtain- ing permission to depart. The great cellist Mstislav Rostropovich is one of the later cases This restlessness has little to do with politics but much more to do with gross mismanagement, nppotism and favountsm which reigns in the organiza- tion which allocates work to the artists Gosconcert. The corruption and inefficiency of Gosconcert is legendary among Hie music people here artists as well as the general public. The main grievances are Uiat artists are allowed too few concerts, that favoured artists get more opportunities to perform and thus maintain a higher standard of living, and that the quality of the ar- tist is poorly recognized. This mounting dissatisfaction has led to a wave of defections and emigration. It is quite likely that as a result of these incidents and the unfavourable publicity they generate, changes will be made in the bureaucracy which runs the musical life of Russia. But these changes will be made only slowly and quietly. The authorities would not like to be seen as responding to pressure from the outside in sucn matters Moreover, the cumulative jkfect of these episodes will serve further to undermine the position of the Cultural Minister. Madame Furtseva. She is already under a cloud and the subject of intense gossip both because of her alleged misappropriation of State funds to build a dacha, or a country house, on a grand scale, and because of her success in antagonizing the ar- tistic community. The problem, of course, goes deeper. There is an intense longing among the ar- tists to participate in inter- national life, to meet their own peers and compete with them on stage and concert platforms.
