Summer will be followed by L) H Lawrence's The Daugh- ler-in-law. and Norman Bethune by Rod Langley, which Centaur commissioned with the Globe Theatre in Regina. Shakespeare's Hamlet, Frankenstein by Walter Learning and Alden Nowlan. and People Are Liv- ing There by South African playwright Aphol Fugard will complete the season.

In trial of her suit against Jerome Rosenthal, which lasted about six months, Miss Day contended she had lost the money through investments made by Rosenthal. New film censor former CBC man TORONTO (CP) O. J. Silverthorne, who retires Sept. 30 after 40 years as On- tario's film censor, is con- vinced his job is unnecessary. His successor, Don Sims, a soft-spoken CBC radio inter- viewer, understandably dis- agrees. "AH I'm going to say about the future is that I'm looking forward to this said the 60-year-old native of Sault Ste. Marie, Ont., who is best known for his work on North- ern Ontario Roundup and the late-night Don Sims Show. "Until I've talked to the peo- ple I'll be working with, I'm telling nobody about my philosophy or anything con- nected with the job." Mr. Silverthorne often went beyond his own conscience in passing films, making Ontario the province with the least censorship in Canada. Advertisers face issue on TV ads TORONTO (CP) The Globe and Mail says the federal government is con- sidering legislative action for- bidding advertisers to deduct expenditures on United States television stations from tax- able revenue. The newspaper says a spokesman for Finance Minister John Turner said he was unaware of any discus- sion of the issue, but he added it would probably develop either in the communications department or the secretary of state department, both of which are concerned with broadcasting and cultural matters. The move was first re- quested three years ago by the Canadian Radio-Television Commission as a way of deterring Canadian adver- tisers from buying advertising time on U.S. border television stations instead of Canadian stations, the newspaper says.

"I'm ashamed of some of the things I've passed.'" But he passed the films be- cause he believes people have a right to watch what they want, despite his strict Bap- tist upbringing. "My dad didn't even believe in shining his boots on Sun- day. When I got away from home I didn't want to go to church as often. So in this job I don't want to force other people into the repression I've had." Mr. Silverthorne's Baptist sensibilities were buffeted most recently by Last Tango in Paris, a movie that did for sex what Ulysses did for lan- guage. "We just closed our eyes and ears and let it go. Who am I to tell people they can't see But he only stretches so far. "The distributors know if they sent me Deep Throat, I'd throw it out and call the po- lice." The film censor's greatest problem today comes from small companies that produce explicit violence and sex. "We have not removed one inch from any film made by the major companies for three years. The film industry is happy with our work." Even theatres that special- ize in showing "garbage" are left with enough films to keep their customers without br- inging in the morality squad. "I don't think I could stay on this job if the morality squad ever walked in and seized a picture we'd passed. I'd just feel it meant we didn't know our job." His critics are many on both sides. Church officials, small-town mayors and police chiefs have attacked him for allowing dir- ty movies into their com- munities and demanded more strict government control. "But they were given a flat no. I've never had any inter- ference from anyone in or out of government in my 40 years." Nor could the board be bought by distributors looking for approval of a con- troversial movie.
