New Canada grain act clears hurdle OTTAWA (CP) - The Conv m o n s agriculture committee Tuesday approved the proposed Canada grain act after lengthy testimony by a Canadian Pacific Railway representative. But this last meeting of the committee on the proposed legislation was unmarked by the open controversy between government and Conservative MPs that has characterized months -long discussion and clause-by-clause examination of the bill. The measure now goes to the Commons for final debate. A revision of the Canada Grains Act of 1930, the bill would impose a new protein grading system for wheat, designed to make Canadian grain more saleable to protein-conscious customers in Europe and Japan. The bill would also reconstitute the board of grain commissioners as a new and more powerful commission with increased Thieu adviser dies SAIGON (AP) - Nguyen Cao Thang, 50, a close adviser to President Nguyen Van Thieu, died Tuesday on the plane that returned Vice-President Nguyen Cao Ky to South Vietnam.

Martinelli, co-ordinator of planning in grain transportation research for CP Rail, presented a brief to the committee suggesting changes in the legislation which might, in CP Rail's opinion, "be detrimental to effective transportation." CP Rail's appearance before the committee was the result of urging last week by Jack Horner (PC-Crowfoot) that the railway be called so the committee could hear all evidence concerning the legislation. Mr. Horner was not present at the meeting. CP Rail's suggestions were that responsibility for checking quality condition of grain before loading was not the responsibility of the carrier but the shipper; that the Canadian transport commission rather than the cabinet have responsibility for assuring efficient movement of grain; that the Canadian wheat board have authority for distribution of railway cars; and that railway companies should be compensated whenever they spend money in carrying out the directives of the Canadian grain commission in switching and classification operations. No amendments were offered, and Ab Douglas (L-Assiniboia) said the suggestions were basically the same as those contained in an earlier CP Rail submission.

Air programming changes needed Fight fan shot in argument PHILADELPHIA (AP) - A spectator at a closed-circuit television showing here of the Muhammad Ali-Oscar Bonavena boxing match was shot to death Monday night by an off-duty policeman after a disagreement over the way Ali was handling the fight. Police said the dead man, Leslie Scott, 42, of Philadelphia, was shot while waving a hunting knife at several off-duty policemen, one of whom had remarked that heavyweight champion Joe Frazier would have no trouble beating Ali considering the difficulty Ali was havp with Bonavena. Ali, also known as Cassius Clay, knocked out Bonavena in the 15th round. During the fifth round Scott drew a five-inch hunting knife from a belt sheath and threatened the man who questioned Ali's ability to fight, police said. Most of the 8,000 persons at the Spectrum Sports Arena were oblivious to the trouble. Patrolman Rudolphs Perrone, 25, shot Scott after the two policemen chased him on to a concourse where Scott continued to threaten the officers with the knife, police said. OTTAWA (CP) - Pierre Juneau, chairman of the Canadian Radio-Television Commission, said Tuesday broadcasters, governments and the public must work to redesign radio and TV programming. "Since we find ourselves in a period of relative instability there is no doubt of the basic need for new social standards, new codes and new collective' arrangements. "I'm convinced that one of the most effective ways to achieve this goal is to redesign the product. After all, Ed Sullivan himself has changed this season." Mr. Juneau told a one-day conference on communications there is a growing imbalance between the technological side of broadcasting and the programming aspects. Broadcasters must be encouraged to fit technology to programming concepts-to make it serve the ends of program production and distribution. There has been a general belief, Mr. Juneau said, that attention must be centred on technology and programming would take care of itself. "But nobody seems to be unduly worried about where this production will take place." MORE CANADIAN CONTENT The CRTC has already moved to increase Canadian content to 60 per,cent of TV schedules and to require radio stations to play at least 30 per cent Canadian music. "The situation has been dormant because the two.responsi bilities of broadcasters have up to now been developing under TO SAVE TEMPLES CAIRO (Reuter) - A $12 million rescue operation to salvage one of Egypt's most precious Nile relics, the Philae Temples, will begin early next year. one roof. That roof is about to blow off." I Those creating and producing j programs now appear to be [ stretched to the limit to nourish a non-stop schedule, Mr. Juneau added. But on the other side of broadcasting operations were those concerned only with financial returns, fixed assets and boards of directors. "It should come as no surprise then that determination of the future of communications may sometimes tend to be with those preoccupied with the quantitative exploitation and ex-tension of communications hardware. "The imperatives of the fixed assets risk determining what we see and hear through our media in the future."
