Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 10, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta THE IETHBRIDGE HERAID Thursday, Detombor 10, .1970 Canadian press floes job supremely jwcli_ More reporters are needed abroad OTTAWA (CP) The Cana dian Press as a Canadian newi clearing house does its job "su premcly well" but should have more reporters abroad, says the special Senate committee 01 mass media. The c o in m i 11 e e 's report, tabled in the Senate Wednesday, suggests that CP, the 1 OS-paper co-operative news-gathering agency, should add at least six men to its staff of foreign corre- spondents at an estimated an- nual cost of for each re- porter. CP has nine men in New York, four in London, two in Washington and one in Paris. The report says CP could and should be doing a better job for the people of Canada in the for- eign field. "We think it is immensely im- AVAILABLE MARKET 40i 2nd Avo. S. Phone 327-4393 portant that the reporters who give us our picture of the world should reflect the kind of bias that Canadians tend to share, rather than the bias that Ameri- cans or Frenchmen or English- men tend to share." CP's view of how to cover other countries was "limited." SHUN HEWIUTES Its foreign correspondents should concentrate on review and analysis instead of "watch- ing and rewriting local news- agency files and newspapers." CP shoiild report the world scene Canadians speaking to Canadians." The committee acknowledged that it is going against some of the evidence in this regard. 'CP itself does not admit the necessity for a view of world events tlirough Canadian eyes. (Why, then, does it put Cana- dian staff men in Washington, :he United Nations, New York. Condon and "Most of the publishers we questioned think the news we get from three foreign agencies via CP is jim-dandy. 'And when we asked the Ca- nadian people we appeared to get a similar response." A committee survey showed that 72 per cent of those ques- tioned thought the balance of local and international news good. On the average, daily newspapers devoted 67.1 per cent of their news content to Ca- nadians news, 32.9 to interna- tional events. But Hit' problem was not how to get more international news but how to increase the "Cana- dian content." "We hope CP will reconsider its policy on the kind of report- ing it wants from abroad and that the newspapers which pro- vide it >vith fluids will take an- other Irak at the (cost) fig- ures." The report says there are oiher agencies that serve the press in Canada but CP caries tiie news load "and' the news- papers could not live without it." CP was 'fast, comprehensive, reliable, thorough and often more colorful than it is often given credit for." CP was a strong force for na- tional unity but was weak in its ittention to the arts and cul- tural matters and to the cur- rents of social change.

The nine French-languag members of CP could, fair claim to receive a service inf rior to that in English. But this was a typically Can dian problem "and we coir mend CP for its determined e forts to give adequate service its French-language members. NEEDS MET The subscribers to th French-language service of C believed the agency was dota everything it could to meet then, needs. "So do the committe says. It dismisses as 'for the mos part inaccurate or inapplicable three criticisms of CP. One, held by some publisher was that CP's rate structure is unfair to smaller newspapers. The committee says CP is governed on the basis of on paper, one vote and there ar more small papers than bi ones. If smaller papers felt un fairly treated, the remedy wa in their own hands. Moreover, small paper needed CP most. A second criticism was CP is an exclusive club whic kept out prospective competi tors by black-balling or settin cost of. entry into the co-opera tive prohibitively high. "We could find no evidenc that this is the case, though i may have been close to th truth in former th committee says. CITE SAMENESS A third criticism was ttu.. CP's "vacuum-cleaner thor oughness" made each paper carbon carbon of every other. "Should CP be expected write 103 versions of every news the report asks. CP's "competent inb" be just as available to th reader in Saskatchewan as the one in Nova Scotia. The committee notes tha there is no press council in Can ada or any other industry watchdog. It adds: "The governors of The Cana dian Press, who might fill th function, occupy their annua meetings with matters of f nance, logistics and technolog cai improvements."

That's the sincere, if somewhat backhanded com- pliment, paid to the working Student -ess pi rapped OTTAWA (Herald Ottawa Bureau) While the D a v e y Eeport on mass media concen- trates on the daily newspaper, it has some lively comments to make about the specialized press. For instance: Turning to the student press, the committee displayed a thor- oughly sophmorish love of quixotic collegiate rebels com- plete with a fiendishly humor- ous but patronizing put-down: "We find it reassuring to re- port that, although the rhetoric surrounding this subject ha changed in the past few dec ades, nothing else has. "Canada's best student news papers are still unprofessiona shrill, scurrilous, radical, taste- less, inaccurate, obscene an wildly unrepresentative their campus audience." No privileges for reporters OTTAWA (Herald Ottaw Bureau) Reporters called as witnesses in legal proceeding should not be extended an "newsman's privilege" to with hold source identities, the S'en ate committee on mass modi feels. 'If instances arise wher reporters feel a personal, mor al obligation to go to jail rath er than betray their sources, s be the report said. It said unlike 14 America: states where laws exempt re- porters from identifying in tormants in court, "newsmen1 privilege" does not exist in Ca nadian statutes and both thf committee and most journalists do not think it should althoug] some individuals have gone to 'ail. "We believe judicial autlior- ties can be relied upon to ap- >ly the law with due regarc or the professional sensibilities the report said. It added that normal priv- lege is intended to protect con- idential communications be- ween known parties whereas 'newsmen's privilege" seeks to "onceal the identity of a party naking an alleged communica- ion and may really serve only o protect the reporter. press by the Davey commit- tee on mass media. Surveying the overcrowded news rooms, inadequate li- braries, dirty washrooms and antique type- writers that typify so many plants, the committee ob- served: "These conditions are pre- valent enough to distress the outside observer, but squalor and journalism traditionally go together and many jour- nalists, we suspect, would be J uncomfortable in surround- ings of normal decent house- keeping." Yet, out of this bleak en- vironment comes a singular "wholly new product every day" as hundreds of rapid and clear judgments are made to turn out each edi- tion. "Journalism, however hum- ble, is a sort of art; there can be very few occupations that are so demanding in terms ol speed and judgment. "The wonder is that news- panel's are as good as they are. 'They really are a daily miracle." The report said the most common criticisms of the press slanted, superficial, sen- sational and supine are un- deserved because critics for- get the overriding need for speed. "Newspapers can never know or print as much about any subject as does the par- ticipant in a news story; and the 'depth' in which they treat a subject Is frequently limited by how little the read- er wants to know. "The marvel is that Cana- dian newspapers do get so much, and get it so fast, and get it so right." ius drivers win hike CALGAKY (CP) The city SCO Calgary Transit Sys- em workers have agreed to a ew two-year contract which rovides a 19-per-cent wage in- crease to 1972. Division 583 of the Amalga- mated Transit Union will re- eive a 12-pcr-cent pay boost etroactive to Nov. 1, 1970, and an additional seven per cent tarting Jan. 1, 1972.

The agreement was ne- otiated between the city and IB union without conciliation r arbitration procedures. Pensioners eat worse than pets WINNIPEG (CP) Whil' many old people were buying cans of dog food to survive more affluent Canadians in 1969 were spending ?3 million to feed their pets, says Dr R. A. Gallop, head of the food science department at to Uni versity of Manitoba. 'Priorities are all Dr. Gallop said in an inter- view. While people are looking after cats, dogs and cockroach- es, the people who had bull up Canada are being neglect- ed, he said. In the interview which fol- lowed a talk he gave to dele- gates at the Manitoba Poor' Think Conference, he said pic >eople could do worse than live off dog food. 'Dog food )s probably very nutritious, you only have to ook at the dogs to see this." In his talk Dr. Gallop advo- cated tho extermination of jests who ate food needed by >eople, particularly starving >eople. He said international efforts must be made to control the rests, such as rodents, insects, irds, monkeys and cockroach- es "who together destroy a ma- or part of the food produced i many countries, such as in Asia, Africa, South America and the Middle East. He praised the British who le said had "spiked" pigeon ood with birth control pills to srevent them from reproduc- ing. In December, 1890, the amount o! sunshine over Brit- ain's Parliament in Westmins- er was recorded as nil hours, il minutes. Ypl JHH Barbara ''Brent TORONTO, December The every- day challcngo to our food budget has made us more aware of those products which combine economy, quality and convenience. Take caio mixes, for example. I a strong preference for MONARCH CAKE MIXES, because I know Monarch's quality is unsurpassed... and they come ia those handy, economical pouches. When I compare prices I nm more convinced that Monarch's Pouch-Pak is tho smart way ,o buy cake mix. 1 have eleven delicious flavours to choose from and another advantage Is the choice of size. If I want.a single ayer I use one Pouch-Pak. For a 2-Iayer cake... two ?oueh-Paks. The Monarch.
