The Ottawa Citizen Page 34 Fit, Dec. 27, 1963 Year of achievement for NCC in developing capital "Mile of History" on Sussex Drive. The NCC, during the year, proceeded with essential land expropriation. At the year end, the commission had spent about for Green Belt lands, more thin $5,000,000 for Le-Breton Flats land, and on progress purchase of Ontario and Quebec properties as approaches for the Macdonald-Cartier Bridge. this six-mile parkway will run from Wellington Street, near Pooley's Bridge, through Le-Breton Flats, across a Ne-peao Bay causeway, and thence along the river to Britannia.

The section opened was from Parkdale to Churchill, with traffic lights at Island Park Driveway. Walkway underpasses were built to give safe pedestrian access to present or future city bathing beaches at the foot of Carle-ten, Lanark, and Woodroffe streets. Three parkway lookouts, with parking areas, have been named Remic Rapids, Kitchis-sippi, and Deschenes Rapids. nue, Gladstone Avenue, and the Queensway. Malloff Ltd.

was awarded a $44,835 contract for a Green Creek bridge as part of the railway relocation scheme. Early in the New Year, tenders will be called for construction of a new Union Station and two ancillary buildings, to cost about $5,000,000, near Hurdman's Bridge, just off the Queensway. The Parkin firm prepared the plans for the new Union Station complex. Early in December, the NCC opened informally the first 1.5 mile section of the new $3,500,000 Ottawa River Western Parkway. By 1967, Col.

By Drive and the Rideau Canal. C. C. Parker Associates, Hamilton, prepared all the grade separation plans. In October, a phase I $1,974,241 contract was awarded to Richard and R.

A. Ryan Montreal, for construction of the tunnel, which was commenced in November to provide considerable winter employment. Early in the New Year a phase II contract will be awarded for depression of the CPR line from the Prescott Highway to the Wellington Street Viaduct eliminating level crossings for the Prescott Highway, Bronson Ave estimated $1,000,000 land expropriation for the Ottawa River Eastern Parkway, particularly as to more expensive houses on Rebecca Street below Rothwell Heights. This project has "low priority" and will not be started before 1970 at the earliest. After considering at least two alternative routes, the commission adhered to its original route.

The government recently confirmed its approval of the original plan. The NCC participated in restoration of the Manotick grist mill, built in 1860, which is now open to the public as an historic site. It also put up the first two historic site plaques in the area at Rideau Falls Park on Sussex Drive and at Carleton County Court House. The NCC and the Pearson government have given "low priority" for the earlier Dief-enbaker government proposed west side of the Rideau Canal. The Pearson Libera) government promptly announced its "acceptance in principle" of the Parkin Plan, and its official decision to proceed with early construction of three governmental departmental buildings on the east side of the canal for completion by the centennial of Confederation in 1967.

The next most important NCC activity in 1963 concerned progress on the $20,000,000 railway relocation program. On July 12, the government announced approval of a $4,000,000 grade separation scheme for the CPR Prescott line, including a tunnel under By J. A. Hume Citizen staff writer Marked progress on the Parkin Plan for Confederation Square development, the railway relocation program, and the Ottawa River Western Parkway provided the highlights for the National Capital Commission in 1963. Of far-reaching importance in a busy year was the Sept.

23 formal unveiling of the imaginative plan by John B. Parkin Associates, Toronto, for development by 1980 of a 40-acre expanded area for Confederation Square. The area embraces 22 acres adjoining the present Union Station, and 18 acres on the If i A. Crouds mill around blazing McArthur Shopping Plaza Damage estimated at $625. (KM) after two main stores biirnel out, others ilamageil $1,000 an hour for Ottawa's fire help In January, the NCC employed Larry Smith ar.d Company of Toronto and the United States to make a population and economic growth study of the city and metropolitan to 1985.

The study was ordered to provide the NCC with more accurate information in planning its activities. Just last week. Prime Minister Pearson asked the NCC to assist in finding a site for the proposed $9,000,000 National Centre for the Performing Arts. The government has announced approval in principle" of the centre plan. The NCC will collaborate with the city and the Ontario government in plans for a proposed $14,000,000 new southern entrance freeway south from Bronson Avenue and Heron Road with an arc to Greely on Highway 31 and an arc to Uplands Airport.

The freeway will have to fit in with the planned $3,000,000 bridge linking Heron Road and the Base Line Road across the Rideau River and canal. Then the NCC ran into some bitter controversy touching its PUBLIC NOTICE STREET CLOSING Notice is hereby given that The Corporation of The City of Ottawa intends to stop-up and deprive of their character as public highways and to sell.

AO COMMENT FROM CHIEF OX -PRESSURE Water pressure at Thursday's fire in Eastview again came in for criticism, but not from Eastview Fire Chief Bernard Joly. Asked during the fire if there was lack of pressure, Chief Joly merely looked grim and said "no comment." But spectators at the fire Eastview citizens were heard time and again commenting about lack of water pressure.

And it was apparent they had some grounds for disapproval with streams from some hoses barely reaching over the rooftop of the one-storey buildings. Following the fire, the chief was again asked about pressure. "We had lots of pressure," he said tersely. "Lots of pressure." V.I.P.s who brings new depth to that familiar role of a plain, devoted office assistant in love with her boss. In a more humorous vein there is Margaret Rutherford, who is wonderful as a doddering old Duchess making her first flight, and getting tangled in a mass of red tape and regulations; and Orson Welles and Elsa Martinelli in flamboyant portraits of a famous film director and his dazzling but dense protege.

Richard Wattis, Michael Hordern, and Ronald Fraser are also amusing as harassed airport officials, as is Martin Miller as a wily tax expert. Everything moves crisply under Anthony Asquith's experienced directorial hand, and if it all ends rather predictably, that's the way it always was in films like The P.s. Actually, it's pleasant to see one again, especially one so smartly made. i I 1 lij I Ciluen-UPI staff photoa -y 4ft Thursday's fire which destroyed two stores in East-view's McArthur Shopping Plaza cost the municipality $1,000 an hour when Ottawa fire equipment was called to the scene. According to an agreement with Ottawa and Eastview, each piece of fire equipment costs $250 an hour for the first hour and $200 for each additional hour or part of an hour after that.

Ottawa sent four pieces of equipment two pumps, an aerial truck, and a hose tender. First call came at 12.10 for a pump. Another pump was called for at 12.28. An aerial ladder was asked for at 1.05 and at 1.45 a call came for a hose tender. The hose tender was out for one hour, returning at 2.44.

The aerial truck returned at 3.37 making a total of $900 for those two vehicles. The pumps were out for a total of 13 hours, costing another $2,700 for a complete total of $3,600. Deputy Chief Alex McFad-den said Thursday this was the first time Ottawa had sent equipment beyond the bounds of the city since the Mississippi Hotel burned in Carle-ton Place five years ago. Miss Taylor, it should be noted, looks ravishing in her Givenchy gowns, and plays a difficult role, one which generates little sympathy or compassion, with a good deal of style, particularly in reflecting the underlying neurotic tensions of the early scenes. Mr.

Jourdan is excellent as the playboy, and Mr. Burton, although hardly suggesting an over-aggressive tycoon, brings a strong charge of anguish and frustration to his portrayal of a disillusioned husband. Possibly more revealing character delineations are contributed by Rod Taylor, as a self-made Australian tractor manufacturer, and Maggie Smith as his adoring secretary, as they desperately try to find the means to cover a cheque he has written to save his business, and now worthless because of the grounding. Miss Smith, incidentally, is a brilliant actress, ii PUBLIC STREET Notice Is hereby given that.

tTsirg the busy London Airport for a locale, and introducing a number of very important persons who, for one reason or another, are anxious to be out of the country, Mr. Rattigan's script conveniently strands them overnight when fog delays Lheir departure. It's a familiar fictional framework, to be sure, but the crises and conflicts which confront the assorted passengers as they wait out the postponement, and the dexterity with which Mr. Rattigan has woven them into a cohesive whole, gives The V.I.P.s a surprisingiy lively and effective sense of dramatic momentum. Jack Hildyard's expert wide-screen color photography, with its fog-shrouded exteriors and flurried airport lounges and lobbies, gets a lot of mood and atmosphere into the proceedings as well.

The most important affair to be dealt with, or, at least, that which is given the most attention and running time, involves Elizabeth Taylor as the sleek wife of a British business magnate (Richard Burton) eloping with an international gigolo (Louis Jour-dan). Although it's a fairly shallow and sentimental piece of business much of the time, as the husband desperately tries to thwart her plans, it does have its moments of trenchant observation and sophisticated bite, as well as forming a sufficiently intriguing basis around which revolve the lesser, but not less-interesting, sub-plots, Capitol THE V.LP.s A Metro-G I -Mayer Picture.
