Mass media questions raised OTTAWA (CP) Prime Min- ister Trudeau said Friday that the government has not yet con- sidered the report of the special Senate committee on the mass media. New Democratic Party Leader T. C. Douglas had asked what the government planned to do with the report, in view of its findings that the profits of media companies are extraordi- nary and astonishing and that the concentration of power is "in fewer and fewer hands." After being told by the prime minister that the cabinet has not yet considered the report, tabled in the Senate Wednesday, Mr. Douglas asked Finance Minister Edgar Benson whether he is considering a limitation on the amount of advertising ex- penditures that companies can claim against taxes. Not at the moment, said Mr. Benson. CARTOONIST DIES Rube Goldberg, the cartoon- ist and humorist famed for his zany inventions, died at his New York City home. The cartoonist, whose name entered the English lan- guage in the expression "a Rube Goldberg meaning something too com- plicated to work, was 87. SPEAKS OUT AGAINST SOUTH AFRICA'S RACIAL SEGREGATION. Dr. Michael Ramsey, the Archbishop of Canterbury, gestures at news conference in London's Lam- beth Palace at which he denounced South Africa's racial segregation. He asserted only considerable change in that country will avert widespread violence. It was the Angli- can primate's first major declaration since returning from a 20-day tour of South Africa. Program takes guesswork out of city planning EDMONTON (CP) City planning and property management involves a some- times bewildering maze of regu- and countless files of in- formation, but an Edmonton program in the works may take the guesswork out of it by next year. Controlled by a computer, the Population and Land-use Sys- tem, PLUS for short, will allow planners to find out all sorts of things about any given section of land in the city by using a simple computer code. Edmonton will be divided into at least parcels of land, depending on how each parcel is used, and each parcel will be given a 10-digit cede number. The code number will be de- termined by taking an arbitrary point outside the city limits and designating it "zero-zero." Working from this point, each parcel will be given co-ordinates that will be filed in the com- puter's memory banks. COUNTS THE PEOPLK The PLUS program was sug- gested by Walter Walchuk, sen- ior research planner, who had studied the feasibility of similar programs in England and the United States. But, said Mr. Walchuk, the Edmonton system will be much more comprehensive in the type of information it will be able to supply about land use. For instance, he said, if plan- ners want to find out what kind of people live within a 500-foot radius of a certain bus-stop they would have a computer pro- grammer put the question into cede and give the appropriate co-ordinate for tire parcel con- taining the bus-stop. A feature PLUS will have INTERMISSION INTRODUCTION Smiles show all around as Britain's Prince Charles, the Prince of Wales, meets Vivienne Dixon backstage during intermission at Leeds Playhouse, Leeds, England, in Yorkshire.

It will in- clude the number of people liv- ing in any building, either a house or apartment, and will say what type of school the chil- dren are in. In non-residential cases, it will outline the floor area occupied by each firm and the number of employees. No names of persons will be used No rewards paid for Cross leads OTTAWA (CP) Prime Min- ister Trudeau told the Commons Friday that he does not know of any rewards being paid for in- formation leading to the discov- ery of the place where British diplomat James Cross was held by kidnappers. Replying, to former prime minister John Diefenbaker, he said that it is not information he would reveal if he had it. The House could not expect him to disclose the identity of an associate of the Front de Liberation du Quebec terrorists if a reward was paid to such a person. Mr. Diefenbaker said he was not asking for the identity of anyone. Rewards up to were offered jointly by the Quebec and federal governments for in- formation in the kidnappings of Mr. Cross and assassinated Quebec Labor Minister Pierre Laporte. HEADING OVERSTRESSED KINGSTON, Ont. (CP) Thc- emphasis on reading skills in to- day's schools is harming many students, Dr. Neil Postmas of New York University said here. He told language arts teachers slow readers may be experts in electronic media while their print-oriented teach- ers may be incompetent in the use of film, radio and visual aids as a means of communica- tion. in order to keep information confidential. 'The idea generally started in the early 1960s when some American cities started to consi- der Mr. Walchuk said. "They weren't all that success- ful I've been interested in it for the last three or four years and I've visited a number of cities." PLUS will be set up in three phases. The first is assimilation of all the necessary informa- tion; the second is putting this into language usable by the computer, now under way; the third is updating information in the memory banks, scheduled to begin next July. Crime rate leaps EDMONTON (CP) Statis tics show that crimes in the city are on the increase, but of ficials are divided about tlr reasons. City police this week re leased statistics on crime which showed robbery was up 56 per cent over last year, rapr 100 per cent, investigation intc drug use 79 per cent and tha there have been 13 murders this year compared with tw last year. There have been 922 arrest. this year compared with 454 last year. Elected officials had sugges lions: Kathleen McCallum blamed rising unemployment. Terry Nugent blamed shifting morals and a permis sive society as well as un employment. "We have thrown awav some old-fashioned be- liefs and replaced them with nothing." Neil Crawford said thi problem is highly complex am involves courts, rehabililatioi and public attitudes. Police Chief Fred Sloan saifl more men are being recruited to cope with the increase. A spring training program will prepare 30 rew men. Andy sends a complete 20- voliune set of tile World Book Encyclopedia to Debbie Kut- nink, age 12, of Indepen- dence, Kansas, for her ques- tion: How tliick is tlic earth's soil? The plant world replenishes our an with fresh oxygen, pro- vides our salads and vege-l tables and the food for pur meat and daily animals. With- rat nature's green worid of >lants, all of us would soon jsrish from the earth. And the >lant world depends on the arth's surface layers of rich oil. Everything in nature de- lends directly or indirectly on everything else. But without he rich brown soil, the world of living things would not have chance to survive. Nowadays we are thinking of ecology and the blalnce of na ture. These thoughts lead us to realize that soil is a life-and- death item. Itwould be nice to mow that the earth has soil n abundance to provide all the ood crops humnaity could pos- sibly need. It would be nice to mow that the soil is indestruc- ible, never wears out, or gets ost. But these pleasant notions are daydreams. Our soil supplies are limited, and easily plundered. What's more, soil is a tricky blend of minerals and organic material and under normal conditions it takes nature about 100 years to create a layer one inch thick. When rivers flood they wash away tons of soil that took ages to develop. Often the flood waters dump this precious soil into the sea. More acres of soil are depleted when stripped of then; natural wild vegetation and robbed of rich- ness by poor farming. So let's pay our proptr re- spects to the good brown soil and a good place to begin is with a survey of the sup- plies we have on hand. From our point of view, the useful layer is the surface topsoil, rich in plant food minerals. In most farm regions, it can be as deep as a cut with a spade. There are thicker layers in many valleys where rain has washed supplies down from higher slopes. High mountains have Little or no soil and many deserts are covered with no thing but gritty sand. Deserts, rocky mountains, glaciers and other vast regions of the earth have no soil worth mentioning Compared with other coun tries, the United States ha; more than its share of rich top soil. And our government ha; extensive plans to preserve our supplies and expand them. The Soil Bank program encourages farmers to allow nature time to build up depleted areas. In the 1950s, more than 50 million acres were left uncultivated Such conservation programs add to our soil reserves for the future. But on a global scale the earth's scanty soil cannff supply food for the hungry world and certainly there is not enough soil for the teeming future. The earth creates soil fron powdered rocky minerals ant organix materials from plants and animals. So far, we have not used these simple, plentifu' ingredients to duplicate na lure's soil recipe on a worth while scale. Our rebuilding pro grams call for conserving na ture's scanty supplies by using good farming mtehods, allow ing depleted acres to rest am recover and treating every little patch of precious soi with the respect it deserves. Andy sends a World Book Atlas to Franc-Hal Harring- ton, age 12, of Lansing, Mi- chigan, for his question Wliy arc Christmas coirs green and red? It's gelling to be that time when we think of the symbols that go with the Christmas season. In those days the peo- ples of Europe celebrated the mid-winter festival around the day of the year, which falls on or near December 21. Somehow the customs of this ancient festival were carried over to the Christmas season which starts a few days later. The customs of the ancient mid-winler feslivals were re- ated to natnie. At this season many trees arc bare. So roughs of conifers, holly and vy were used to decorate the louses, no doubt as a reminder thai the green springtime would return. In any case, many evergreens' were loaded with red berries. The mid-win- ter festival colors were green and red and it is thought that people later adopted Ihem as he colors of Christmas.

Goldfield Corp. shares not registered says firm DENVER, Colo. (AP) Prin- cipal Savings and Trust of Ed- bought the Goldfield shares as monton accused a Denver bro- managers of Principal Growth kerage firm of selling in unregistered shares in viola tion of federal law. In a suit filed in U.S. District Court, the Edmonton firm asks that Boettcher and Co. be or- dered to refund purchase price of Goldfield Corp. shares. Principal Savings contends Boettcher did not explain the shares were unregistered in selling them last January. Not until later, the suit says, did Principal Savings learn the shares could not be sold. Fund after a telephone call from Fred C. Larkin, a partner in Boettcher. Principal Savings learned in March the shares were unreg- istered in violation of the 1933 Securities Act and placed an or- der to be sold, the suit says. The firm says it was then told by Boettcher the shares were restricted against transfer and could not be sold. Three liiirt in bomb explosion LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) An explosion damaged the com- puter centre and injured three students on the University of Kassas campus Friday nighl three minutes after a tele- phoned warning of a bomb. A university spokesman esti- mated the loss at John K. Seitz, night supervi- sor of the computer service, said a man's voice came on the main campus telephone line p.m. and said: "There's a bomb in the ma- chine room. It's set to go off in three minutes. This is no joke." At 11 p.m. the explosion oc- cured in an outside stairwell, with a concrete block wall be- tween it and the machine room. One of the injured was stand- ing in the hall about 30 feet from the outside dor and the other were in the stairwel, unaware that the bomb was be- hind some cardboard boxes near them, Seitz said. The three victims were treated at a hospital for concus- sion and were released. IRECO INDUSTRIES INC. OF CANADA APPOINTMENT Mr. James C.
