Minto Follies Proves One Of Gayest Editions to Date Admirers of Ottawa's, skating world filled up the Auditorium lajt night for the first performance of one of the gayest and most charming editions of the Minto Foil lei. It's a young world on Ice skates if last night's show Is any proof, with the average age of the performers in thir 'teens or less. Of course, the self-styled "old-timers" had more than a good deal to do with the success in training and planning, and even filling in where the man-shortage was acute, but they .preferred to stay in the background and it was the children who rang the bell. Biggest co-operative effort of the show was "Snow . White and the Seven Dwarfs", which brought In all the Junior members from the age of three In its flocks .of woodland creatures bluebirds, violets, fluff-tailed hunnles and crooked-tailed gray squirrels, and akunks whose white streaks-down their backs brought laughs of delight from the audience as soon jas they caught sight of them. Young Champions Star. Jane Kirby's skating at Snow White had a lovely joyous spirit, and tiny Patricia Mabee as the leading" bluebird was most birdielike. Pierre Brunet and Donna Pospisil. the 12-year-old U.S. senior pair champions, stole a food deal of the show wtih their faultless co-ordination which worked Just as well when they were Skating apart as when arm-in-arm. Their natural grace and dash seemed to show what it is the youngsters have that even slightly older skaters can no longer catch. High point of the evening for many of the audience was 16-year-old Barbara Ann Scott, the Minto Club's new North American champion. In her short pale Uut costume aha Was comnletelv at ease and sure of herself, so that the audience. never thought how difficult the figure she was doing might be but only how lovely she looked. The admiring silence during her graceful adagio dance was broken only by th whirr of a couple of amateur xnovie cameras. Another individual triumph for the Minto was Comedian Arthur Nelles, R.CN.VJL, formerly with Sonja Henie's show, with his seemingly uncontrollable knees and ankles and a tendency to tie himself into sorrowful knots. "Quartet in Cerise", also local talent, scored with their striking formations and sequin-covered costumes. Applaud Visitors. Visiting talent was' an impressive array. Blonde Gretchen Merrill, U.S. champion, in a silver costume, got a big hand for her pep and vivacity. Her adagio number showed a wonderful control on the ice. Noffke and Schu-bach (be an ensign in the U.S. Navy, spending his leave skating for the Minto) were perfect poise in their dance duets. Comedian Dick Nutter got whistles for his coy maiden, and gave the bunnies uuui niicu ub annual wciii sailing into their seats at the rail-edge. Dick Button gave in motion' with his daring leaps, while the -Young Smoothies", Hazel and Joe Sullivan, were just that. Things still must be said about the Minto ensembles and the J costumes wnicn gave so much to them- From the. opening "Alpine Carnival, (featuring Den-yse Choquette as a dainty Snow Sprite), with its green, orange and red Tyrolean skirts and shorts, to the final "Salute to the United - Nations" ending in a 'march of triumph, the key-notes were color and originality. The hoop-skirted and pantale-ted Blue Danube chorus looked most engaging and their waltz down the ice drew a round of applause. On a different plane entirely were the young jitterbugs who went at it with real vim and vigor, down to the smallest. Soloist Peggy Ram did some fast high-stepping. The Treasure Island number brought gasps when the lights - went out and feathered Nadine Phillips of Toronto was an effective Bird of Paradise. Vocalist Gwendolyn Smart and few "live" jitter-bugs added to the proceedings. It was the old,-faahioned "Blossom Time' though that took the cake. There aint nothin' to beat a waltz on skates. And. while a prd show may dispense with unexpected falls, there isn't half the enthusiasm or the fun there was last night. E. S. PROGRAM. A!

VNt O r THE FAMOUS PRODUCTS OF i The CANADA STARCH COMPANY Limited ks-s Fire Chief Charges Carelessness Causes 99 Percent, of Fires The chief cause of big fires In Ottawa, was delay in putting In an alarm, Fire Chief Burnett told the Ottawa Insurance Agents' As sociation at a luncheon meeting in the . Chateau Laurler Thursday. "Ninety-nine percent, of all fires are caused by. carelessness, the remaining one percent, by Chief Burnett said the fire department could not extinguish a fire until it heard about it and then traced the long delay between discovery of a fire and giving the alarm which investigation OFF THE RECORD THE OTTAWA JOURNAL, FRIDAY, ' MARCH 23. 1S4J. T had revealed In several fires in Ottawa during the past year. "If you are near a fire and do not see the fire department, pull an alarm box at once; it won't matter even if someone else already has", advised the chief. People should not, however, turn in an alarm any distance from the fire as the equipment would have to report at that point first. Miss Christina Drever entertained the meeting: with a Scottish and Irish monologue and C. Maxwell Taylor showed his colored film of the fire in Lans-downe Park last Fall. George Pcrley presided. David McCann Introduced .Miss Drever and. Murray Cleary, the speaker. Journal classified ads have produced results after other means have Jailed. "JAack'si M(Kerracher-wai:less LOOTED ! 1 By Ed Reed.
