RATINGS ROUSE IRE That success, of course, de- pends on the subject that brings Boone to the boiling point. He said his first series, Medic, was put on "for just one knock Lucille Ball off top notch." It failed to do so and NBC cancelled it after two yea-s. His next series, Have Gun, Will Travel, rode high in the ratings and Boone left it a mil- lionaire in 1903 to put together a repertory company for antho- logies on The Richard Boone Show on NBC. It was cancelled after the first year.

S. arcadian opera natrons warmer TORONTO CCP) Critics 'think they have a mission of Canadian audi- ences are more receptive to innovation in opera production than their European or South American counterparts and contemporary composers of opera "all try to be way out." Those are a few of tlie cap- sule assessments about opera in Canada made by the man who has been called Mr. Opera Canada, Herman Geig- er-Torel, a founder and gen- eral' manager of the Canadian Opera Company. About critics: "They are trying to do a damn good job. They do a lot of homework and some of them have travelled widely so that they have a yardstick which they can measure our efforts by comparing them with the efforts of other companies. The result is sometimes negative, but I must admit that they try to assess our efforts in a very professional way. "I think that one of the main shortcomings of our critics is that they tlunk they have a mission of criticizing and not a mission of praising. They just hesitate to praise anything. There just seems to be this tradition that critics don't get carried away. I wish one of our critics would one day just be carried away. It would be beautiful." How much effect does a critic's comments on a pro- duction have on the box office for that production?

"Canadian audiences have secome, during the last 20 ears, more and more knowl- dgeahle, very curious and ven demanding. Here in Toronto we have n audience which travels a ot, or has travelled a udience which has to a great egree an operatic back- ground because many come rom other countries where apera is a portion of the way f life. The audience in To- onto is at least as good as in lilan or in Rio de Janeiro or in Munich, "In one way, Canadian au- dience are better tian those in Europe or South America, "hey have much less preju- ice if we do an opera in ion-traditional way, and ac- ually we do most of our op- eras in a non-traditional way. They don't mind. I think they would mind much more if we canie up a very tradi- ional presentation of an opera."

The man said he had followed all the rules in looking for work since he was laid off from a tlirec-week job in a sawmill shortly after coming to B.C. from Ontario a year ago. Ke said he has graduated from high school, completed one year of a three-year busi- ness administration course in Ontario and has worked as a salesman and lab technician. But because he did not want "There U educational poten-' Ual here. It makes you wonder why they couldn't have done that months ago. It's loo bad there isn't a line open to Trudeau every day." GOVERNMENT JOB The man said the job he has been offered and will accept is with the federal government, but he refused to say what it Is or what it pays. There were a few job offers which he turned down, the man said, because the pay was less or only equal to the unemploy- ment benefits and "It became a moral question of whether I should take myself away from my family or not. "I've dcr.e nothing there is no fraud tha man said, adding that if Mr. Trudeau tries to have fraud proved "he can shove it be- cause there aren't jobs."
