In a word, we were given tourist Canada in a nutshell, and this reviewer agreed with the enthusiastic gentleman in the audience who suggested that Wry and Ginger be sent to the Brussels' World Fair to perform there somewhere in between Glenn Gould and the Hart House Orchestra. To be sure, the clever political- jibes and jokes which needless to say-are the salt of the witty book would be lost on the world's visitors, but oh! those pretty Canadian girls, those shapely Canadian dancers and all the catchy songs! They would "sell" Canada to the world.

(By the way, the enthusiastic gentleman in the audience was not John Fisher of the CBC). But we agree with him, even though some of the acting, particularly of the spoken dialogue, here and there, seemed a little less assured than the clockwork (professionalism shown in My Fur Lady. But this new revue new for Ottawa is far from being the proverbial "second It's full of new flavor, zest, inviting you to a third helping. Enjoyable Songs Meanwhile, we enjoyed the sight and songs of the young couple Tom Ridley (Buddy Nai-smith) and Jane Paget (Holly Higgins), who plan a trip to the moon, under the sponsorship of a comical Canadian Under Secretary of Defense, Ernest Fret-well (played by Christopher Dobson, the father of the re- New Church Dedication Sunday ACOUSTICON'S EXCLUSIVE families in the Eastview -Over-brook area. The architects were NEW STYLEAR 111 ir An ambition of many years Itandlng, a United Church aerving the Eastview-Overbrook ra, will be realized Sunday afternoon at three o'clock.

At that hour, the new East-brook United Church, on Donald Street between Beaudry and Quill Streets, will be dedicated by Rev. Dr. A. M. J.

Gray, of St. Paul Eastern United Church and immediate past president of the Montreal- Ottawa conference, assisted by Rev. Dr. H. W.

Wonfor, pastor of the new church. The two United Church congregations of Eastview and Overbrook were amalgamated by Synod three years ago into Eastbrook United Church, arvd the task of raising funds for the new church was launched by Dr. Wonfor and Dr. Dyson Rose, chairman of the building, committee. The rtew church, built at a cost of will serve 200 Burgers and McLean, Ottawa, and the building was erected by the Teron Construction Co.

Modern in design, the new church building will house the chancel and the nave, and the connecting vestry and rooms for the choir. In the basement is the church hall for Sunday school and other uses, a connecting kitchen and other ohurch rooms. Construction was started last fall.

who swept like a sophisticated she-devil through all the funny-fantastic scenes of the cross-country atrip, including the golden glitter of a phoney rocket to the moon on the Canadian National Exhibition in Toronto. Geoffrey Cosgrove showed himself the most experienced character comedian of the evening in his two scenes of an old war veteran to whom life and "things just aren't the Another funny figure was the timid Calgary bank clerk (William Lyon), who had to impersonate a dangerous bank robber to be overpowered by the bank manager and locked in the safe along with five other bank clerks, posing as bank robbers to add more commercialized bravado to the stampede. Excellent Costumes The costumes were joyously colorful and so were the stage sets including a bright Emily Carr Indian village against the towering skyline ot the Rockies, and the dazzling glamor of the CNE midway. Pictorially, this was the finest scene of the show: The six barkers singing and dancing, the hip-wiggling Hawaiian beauties, and the circus girl with the snake around her neck; the marionette-like clowns, in particular, plunged the revue, for a moment, into a dynamic Petrouchka atmosphere, though with music by Jerry Horovitch (instead of Stravinsky), the musical director. This scene was one of the brightest highlights of Gordon Atkinson's direction and Heino Heiden's choreography.

Wry and Ginger, a benefit presentation for the Theater Foundation of Ottawa, will be repeated tonight, and after a pause return to Ottawa Thursday, Friday and Saturday and also with a matinee performance on Saturday.

Police said Partridge's auto was heading east on Riverdale Avenue when he attempted to turn north on to Main Street. The driver told police a car travelling south on Main cut in front of him, causing him to lose control when he swerved to avoid a collision.

Exclusive Ambulance took the men to hospital.

Charged is Harry Stumm, of 85 Stewart Street.

The accident happened shortly after midnight near the intersection of St. Patrick and Sussex Streets. Rain was falling at the time. Police said Stumm's car had been heading east on St. Patrick and swung south on to Sussex.

It collided head-on with a northbound vehicle on Sussex, driven by Rheal Lepage, 40, of 81 Falardeau Street. Injured and taken to General Hospital by police were: Lepage, who suffered a gash on his right knee and a bump on the forehead; his wife, MrsL Lucie Lepage, who had severev facial cuts; and their daughter, Louise, 17, who had a cut on her chin and a bruised left forearm. AU were treated and released. Nobody in the Stumm auto required treatment. talks to me because she Is saving her voice for singing but she talks to him.

DEAR ABBY: Your reader who said bullfighting is a cowardly sport doesn't know what he is talking about. It is neither a sport (it is a drama) nor is it cowardly. The man and the bull have a 50-50 chance. That is more than you can say for the American sport of duck-hunting. When the ducks can shoot back I will say you Americans are as humane as we Mexicans.

i Gerald Sheen, 33, of 541 Bay Street, has a broken back and injured left ankle. Civic Hos-' pital lists his condition as serious, while his partner, Buddy Offord, 35, of Arthur Lane, is in satisfactory condi- tion with a compound left leg I fracture and a broken left arm. 1 The men had been hired to trim tree branches in a yard at the rear of 387 and 389 Sunnyside Avenue, just off Rose-dale. Sheen and Offord were stand- i ing on the two-piece extension ladder, when the connecting links snapped, making the ladder fold over. Terry Hunter, 37, also of 541 Bay Street, told The Citizen, "I i was cleaning up branches at the 1 foot of the tree and' had my back to the others when I heard Gerry shout, 'Look out and down they came." The victims landed on a hard gravel lane and remained there until Exclusive Ambulance took them to hospital.

I been in the photography business for over 40 years and have tried to be kind to amateurs, but things are getting out of hand.

I was recently asked to get pictures of a wedding and I counted 16 bathtub Rembrandts there. bride's parents decided to hold off ordering my pictures until they saw what the amateurs came up with. Naturally, the profit from that job was almost nil. Why don't amateurs leave the wedding pictures to professional photographers and stick to taking pictures of Yellowstone Park?
