This week, Joachim- Foikis Hie self-appointed town fool o; Vancouver, British Columbia has been instructing .southern Ontario, the seal of English Can adit's establishment, in Uie wis dom of Jolly. "Canada may be a land of milk alid honey but. It needs spirit," Foikis told a lunch hour crouTi on Toronto's City Hal! plaza. "I want to help people lose some of their psychic constipation." AHJrcd in hi.s belled blouse, tight pants, dunce cap and bells, Foikis went to a suburban public high school, where many of Uie teen-agers .seemed to reject his message about not following well worn paths unquestioning!)'. A few praised him for having ''made us think." Thirty-six years oid, and a husband and a father of children, aged 2 and 4. Foikis says he wants to shake if not shiftier "the four basic pillars of society -- money, status, respectability and conformity." He discovered his calling while plodding through a course, which he dropped, in library science. "I had an epiphany on the ]4ih of February last year," he recalled. "I saw an archetypal vision of the fool. I was high for six weeks." Ifis English wife, Wendy, sewed a costume of royal blue and fire red. It represents, said Foikis, Blake's "Marriage o! Herfven and Hell," of spirit and body, of the holy and the pro fane. -He is a thorn in the side of the business - oriented ruling class of Vancouver and a delight to the city's hippies and students. Last monlh, he scored a major victory when the Canada Council, a federal agency which subsidizes (he arts,' awarded him a ?3,500 grant "to revive the ancient and time - honored tradition of town fool." He dropped out of a Nazi youth organization at age 12, he said, but later got a bachelor's legree in commerce from the roe University of Berlin. In 955. he migrated to Canada and 10 obtained a .second bachelor's degree, in religion, at the University of 'British Columbia. There he acquired a deep interest in mythology and, from that, nursery rhymes. He admits to being lazy but ast winter he worked -- in cos- ume -- as a laborer for the 'ancouver Paries Department ind he has been working hard espomling to the many invila- ions that followed the Canada Council award. The Foikis family lives in a mall cottage near the Universi- y of British Columbia. At home, Foikis wears ordinary clothing. "I hope to turn older people n," says Joachim. "My success s a spark of recognition in a man's eye." Liz Loses Mooring For Floating Kennel LONDON.

Rome's. 65-year-old synagog, where the psalms .were, -transcribed, is a temple of heavy Assyro-Babyloflian style iacing the Tiber. It is hardly five minutes from St. Peter's, where ritual masses of Christian composers are sung and played. . Not far away, at Number 119 on the Appian Way, are the Jewish catacombs, where early psalms were sung secretly underground . in the 3rd and. 5th centuries. The candelabra are seven-branched chiseled in brown tufa walls, but no music. Piattelli felt that the great Jewish psalms of sabbath, new year and chanukkah, deserved to be perpetuated nol merely by be attacked briskly, then taper off \with a slower, meditative rhythm, according to the cantor's style. Piattelfi's psalmbook has 14 sections, covering marriage, circumcision, and the seven circuits around the tomb of a deceased male. Artists To Work Before Public in Denver Project DENVER, Colo. ffl -- Denver- ites will have a chance to watch art progress from the ground up starting June 12. as nine artists begin work on wood sculptures up to 40 fe^t-high. : The projects--when completed --will become the property of the city, and any work the city decides not to .keep will be destroyed. The chairman of the Universi- y of Denver visual design department. Roger Kotoske, said the artists will work daily at sketch with Miss Burnett and Korman playing a disenchanted pair given to bitterly /funny cracks in the manner of radio's old Bickersons. : The funniest sketch in the windup show was, however, a Burnett solo--a housewife hearing the voices of all those commercial TV pitches ranging from a challenge to eat one potato chip .to accusations about the whiteness of her wash. TV still can get more satiric kidding itself than any other subject^ including politics. BEST BET-- And : how every cat has its day as the "sequel" to It's a Dog's World is telecast.

The preliminaries are not producing much news that the cameras can capture. Dignitaries entering and leaving the conference hall and mass news conferences are hardly .'the .-ideal-TV news story. NBC, handling, the networks' pool, has a staff of 60 tied up on the conference, and the other two networks have almost as many.

It is a move that parallels loosely the changeover of the Catholic mass from a Latin service to the living languages of the world. "This is an effort," Piattelli says, "to reach specialists in re- Igious music to enable them to compare our psalms with other iturgical melodies, especially Christian ones." Out of respect for the oral tra- ition, Pialtelli has avoided spe- ifying any tempo. This is because the psalms are meant to 01 low as *168 00 Acme TV Appl.
