Born in St. John's, he took to the road at the age of 16 and before he was old enough to vote he had criss-crossed the country more than 10 times. CHANGED JOBS While hitch-hiking he would stop periodically to work and earn more travelling money, changing jobs as the demand requested. Steve Foote. his family name, hasn't been a musician during all of his 37 years. He has also been a painter, sculp- tor and has dabbled in leather work as well. But of all things he liked music best and with the en- couragement of some friends from down east, he began playing beer halls on the St. John's waterfront, where he also worked as a stevedore. That's where the stage name originated. That was a little more than live years ago, and the small batch of songs which launched his singing career and made up his repertoire have since grown "My professional career started some time after that when I played in Collingwood. Ont. and the couple of good breaks which followed helped me a he said in an inter- view. The "couple of breaks" he talks about include three long- playing albums, a series of good-selling singles, and tele- vision exposure, along with club performances and concerts The "breaks" which are probably dearest to his heart are citations, trophies and personal recognition he has received from the people he sings he calls the thinking-working class. "My music doesn't appeal to everyone, but I still like them to get into my songs, sit back and listen instead of screaming at me as though I was some kind of jukebox He's an Easterner, like many of today's country- oriented singers in Canada, and lie's fiercely proud of his heritage. The traditional prairie- type country songs are fine but so are the newer said Stevedore Steve. His material has been in- fluenced by Robert Service, poet of the Yukon, as well as traditional country singers, many of whom came from the Kast Coast and made good only after they began playing in the United States. I want to be known and recognized for my songs, but what I want more is for Canadians to know more about their own he said. Day of Judgment A scene from Carl Orff's new work performed recently at Salz burg Festival Theatre Long ovation hails apocalyptic opera By JAMES SUTCLIFFE Christian Science Monitor SALZBURG, Austria After an overwhelmingly spectacular hour and 10 minutes of stage magic, an elegant, first-night audience in Salzburg's large Festival Theater stayed for almost 20 minutes to cheer and applaude composer Carl Orff and his performing team. The occasion was the recent world premiere of his latest major work for the musical stage, De Temporum fine Comoedia (The Play of the End of a three-part quasi philosophical, speculative look at the Day of Judgment, in Greek. Latin, and German. Originally intended for production in Stuttgard last year. Orff's allegiance was transferred to Salzburg when it became evident that only the financial and scenic resources of an international music festival, with worldwide broadcasting and recording connections, could loot the bill for an adequate mounting of the piece. Not that Orff had provided concrete pointers for perfor- mance. His score is devoid of any such aids for. according to it. the Nine Sibyls (part 1) are discovered in a "fantastic landscape" by night. What we saw, evidently due to the inspired imagination of stage director August Everding (Hamburg Opera's new chief) and his designer Guenther Schneider Siemssen, was a cosmic dis- play of s.tage techniques, the enormous Tree of Knowledge disintegrated to show six of the nine sibyls suspended in mid-air over the slowly rising earth circle, while planets and their attendant moons spin in star studded space a mightily impressive sight on the enormous Cinerama like stage in Salzburg, the widest in the world.

The Scottish papers are full of chatter about someone who in the United States is generally spoken of as Dr. Guthrie, but who in Britain is almost invariably referred to as just plain Guthrie, but oc- casionally as Tyrone Guthrie. Guthrie is in the news because of the current Edin- burgh Festival With opera, drama, ballet, and more than a hundred entertainments on the fringe, brought here by aspiring companies from clubs and universities, bent first on personal fame, and se- cond (not far behind) on proving, with beards, long "Country Blues" Playing In The YORK HOTEL Thursday, Friday, Saturday September 13, 14, 15 Under New Management hair, and jeans, that the of- ficial festival is the last despairing cultural fling of a dis-credited bourgeois democracy. Dr. Guthrie (I really mean Guthrie) is being talked of this year because 1973 is the 25th anniversary of the first production of Sir David Lind- say's, "The Three which used the Great Assembly Hall of the Church of Scotland in Edinburgh as an open stage, and thereby gave the inspiration for the annual Shakespeare Festival in On- tario, whose begetter was Guthrie himself DISPLAY "The Three Estates" is being revived this year in its old home, with a surprising number of its original cast (after all, 25 years is a long time in the including James Cairncross. Tom Fleming, Lennox Milne, and James Cairney. This revival is being made quite a big thing in Guthrie's honor: Peter Ustinov has opened an exhibition organiz- ed by the Scottish committee of Equity and the Royal Lyceum Company, designed by John L. Paterson, and researched and edited by Nancv Mitchell, vice- chairman of Equity. Photographs of Guthrie and of some of his productions have been mounted upon stands, and the idea is later to ELKS CLUB OF LETHBRIDGE 1251 3rd avenue South Are undergoing extensive remodelling and alter- ations to the present building which should be com- plete by September 30th.

That word "sir" slipped in by mistake. In Britain it is hardly ever used to designate Guthrie. It carries reverberations of class con- sciousness which are out of fashion. Sir Michael Redgrave, for example, likes to be called Redgrave, not Sir Michael. By a fine shade of social feeling, it is. on the other hand, per- missible in the British press to refer to Sir Laurence Olivier, because the use of Sir in the name of this very great actor democratically indicates one's determination not to be so sychophantic as to call him Lord. But it is well known that Sir Laurence very strongly likes, exactly as Redgrave does, to be called plain, undecorated Olivier. Nevertheless, if on occasion it seems especially desirable to put a prefix of honor in front of Guthrie's name, Britain, with inordinate reluc- tance, admits that he in fact actually was a sir Dr is a dis- tinction that does not dis- tinguish: There are thousands and thousands of PhDs sound scholars, no doubt, but not universally noted for out- standing work. But Guthrie was the only yes, the only theatrical director in the entire world who was knighted solely for his directorial work. But prefixes stick in progressive British throats. It is easy to understand a certain jealousy of lord and sir. But a letter in that very fine and intelligent British newspaper. The Guardian, has started a campaign lor abolishing the titles of Dr. and Mr. as well.
