The CRTC's recent recommendation that the CBC television network drastically reduce commercials during prime viewing time, is "the right idea but the wrong approach" says a University of Lethbridge political science professor. Roger Rickwood, who wrote his doctoral thesis on the development of broadcasting in Canada, agrees with the CRTC that there should be fewer commercial messages interrupting CBC fare, but questions the CRTC's method of effecting such a change. "By such a recom- mendation, he says, "the CRTC is setting itself up as a taxing authority If the CBC must reduce its advertising it will obviously have less revenue. "If the CBC is to survive, money will have to come from somewhere else. Parliament will have to raise the revenue by voting to support the CBC with million annualy amount of income lost by cutting out commercials Given present economic conditions, Rickwood doubts such monetary support will be forthcoming. The CRTC is moving into management' when it makes such recom- mendations about the CBC, he says, and that is not its role. "As a public service agency I don't think the CRTC is justified in this he says Details of programming and advertising specifications are the domain of the CBC board of directors, but the CRTC seems to be expanding its own role to this area "The objective of the recommendation is admits Rickwood. "What Pierre Juneau (CRTC chairman) wants is increased quality and quantity in Canadian- produced shows on the CBC. It's a great idea, but he's pursuing it the wrong way. He should have asked the broadcasting committee or cabinet for a study and report on CBC television advertising practices. Israel irrigation projects triumph over desert Casual acceptance of the not-too-distant sounds of war 1 implicit understanding that military crises supercede all other daily activity belief in a national destiny Those are some of the distinctive Israeli attitudes U of L geography prolessor Chester Beaty perceived during his recent trip to 1 Israel. At the end of March. Dr Beaty spent almost two weeks touring Israel, while attending an international 1 symposium on desert land forms and arid environments. One of four representatives I from Canadian universities t attending the conference, Dr Beaty presented a paper about his research on desert flooding i On a field trip in the area around the Sea of Galilee, Dr. Beaty and his party heard guns booming less than 50 miles away, on the northern Golan Heights. "To those of us unaccustomed to living in the j midst of warfare, it was i somewhat he I reports "Although our Israeli guides weren't blase about the i shooting, they certainly accepted it casually." j Since the people are the army, there's no feeling of occupation or martial law in says Beaty. "Almost everyone must serve >n the army when trouble flares up between Israelis and Arabs, so every aspect of the economy is affected. When the majority of people working in a factory must temporarily leave their jobs for the army, the production falls off. Construction of new buildings or roads comes to a near halt j while all able-bodied Israelis j are in military service i "It's a very different sort of i lifestyle" adds Dr. Beaty, "because the threat of war intrudes into everyone's daily activity. Very little consistent progress can be achieved in manufacturing or building." The most disrupted source of Israeli revenue has been the tourism industry. MacEwan awarded CHESTER BEATY Although the hostilities continue, he says there is no feeling of being "under siege" while travelling in Israel. When one is away from any of the contentious areas, Israeli life goes on as usual, with no evidence of strife. Dr Beaty says he will never again apply the word 'desert' to arid areas of North America. "We really have nothing here that can compare to the stark dryness of Israeli desert he says. Rainfall in portions of Israel is as minute as of an inch annually, he says, while the driest spot in North America is the floor of Death Valley where the annual rainfall ranges between two and three inches. He terms deserts in the southwestern part of North America "luxuriant" in contrast with those of the Sinai Peninsula. However, the Israelis have triumphed over their environment by massive irrigation projects. "Southern Albertans would find the crops comments Dr. Beaty. "Everything from bananas to Idaho potatoes flourishes. The bulk of the water used comes from the Jordan Valley and is distributed by the National Water Carrier System." Dr. Beaty says that Israeli geomorphologists have perfected numerous instruments and techniques for measuring waterfall and water run-off in small areas with the intention of applying principles of irrigation to large regions of the country Although Israel has b'een largely, successful in its efforts to become self- sufficient in food production, all is not roses for the agricultural regions. "At the present time, Israel is using 95 per cent of its available says Beaty "By the turn of the century, her present population of 32 million people is expected to near the five-million mark. Clearly, if there is an increased demand for agricultural produce, there will not be enough water for irrigation. De-salmization of sea water is the only likely solution, and scientists are already working on such problems." MAN, 94, SENTENCED ST. PAUL, Minn.
