Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 15, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 4 THE HERA1D _ Fftdoy, 13, 1975 Decision rests with station The Sesame Street controversy teems to be hopelessly deadlocked, The hostilities will have to end some- time. A ceasefire is out of the ques- tion, for that implies a victory for ne Her side. Either the program will or it will not be reinstated. The decision is and muat be that ot the station management. No such operation can be managed by public petition or school board resolution. The station management gives no of reconsidering the decision it has already made. The public outrage stems from the fact that Sesame'Street has been broadcast locally before, and al- though it may not be the perfect children's program, the concerned parent regards it as almost the only bit of solid for his child, tn the vast quagmire o: television. Tele- vision, for seed or ill. is one o; the most povreriul influence: in ;he lives of most children today. Kw harm the rest of it does is open to dispute, hut Sesame Street does gccd. Why. then, was this one good chil- dren's program cancelled from rhe local station? If it was shown before, not now? Because oi a new rol- ins by the Canadian Radio ar.d Tele- vision Commission, '.vhich governs aJ broadcasters. This season, and not beiore, Sesame Street is classed a "foreign" program, ar.d all stafions are restricted in the percentage o: their time allovred for foreign pro- grams. Most Canadian parents are not seriously affected by this new ruling. They can still get Sesame Street from stations owned and operated outright by the CBC, or from cable systems which carry it on channels not used by the established stations, or from, private stations which con- sider it of sufficient public merit that they are willing to include it in the limited amount oi foreign material they can carry. But here none of those conditions apply. There is no CBC station. 'The cable system i which in any case doesn't reach beyond the city) does not carry it. And the private station won't carry it because it can't make anv money from it under the present CRTC rules. The limited time for foreign-content programs must be re? served, it is claimed, for those pro- grams which can carry commercials, ar.'J the creators of Sesame Street no; allow commercials. So this seems to be the situation: The CRTC is senselessly rigid in its new ic-reign-coMent classification ot Sesame Street. But even under the new rules the station could carry the program if it wished. To rr.cst ptrsr.'s who are concerned about what their children's minds are exposed to. ar.d who are frequently dismayed hy so much of the tele- vision fare, the genera! affect is prob- ably a -' conviction that pri- vaie has failed.

Accord- ing to current reports North Amerl- ca'ns are being bilked of over 31 billion annually on cold pills ar.d cough syrups that don't work. At -he same time they are also spending vast amounts and actually risk-ng their health to pep themselves up ar.d slim down. It would seem yes- teryears remedies were both more curative and certainly cheaper. Latest word from a United States Senate subcommittee is that many cough and cold remedies sold over the counter are irrational comhina- lions of medicine and simply a gen- erous mixture of false claims and outright nonsense. Condemned in this category and also labelled dan- gerous are Contac, Dristan, AUerest and Coricldin. Instead of treating cold symptoms the anti-hUtarrur.e contained in these products can ac- tually inflict harm.

This trer.d is clear, not only in the new and struggling countries, but in the United States, the Soviet Union and China, and it is particularly marked here in Britain. Prime Minister Heath talks about these things very quietly and steadily in the cabinet room at N'o. 10 Downing Street. He seems more in command here now than ever before, despite all his problems, but the em- phasis of Ms conversation has changed in the last year from global to national ar.d interests.

Before the British have quite got ust-d to 1 o s i n g an empire they liked, they are being asked to join a continent they have never particularly liked, and meanwhile the Heath govern- ment has published an "Official Social Commentary'1' on the cundition of Britain, which even the Webbs might feel was a little disturbing.
