"It's no big deal, says the television star. "It doesn't affect anything." Miss Duncan underwent a 10- hour operation Nov. 1 at the University of California Medical Centre in Los Angeles to re- move a benign tumor from be- hind her left eye. Because the surgery was through the top of (her head there are no visible scars. Both large, beautiful eyes move normally. Is the sight really gone permanently from the left one?

Walt Disney productions Inc. asked for an FCC ruling because Paulsen is scheduled to appear in an episode of a new Disney television series called The Mouse Factory. The Disney firm wondered whether the FCC's equal-time rule would apply to Paulson and his tongue-in-check candi- dacy, thus obligating stations airing the show to provide equal time to other presiden- tial candidates. The FCC said the regulation would apply and that stations would be obligated to provide equal time to candidates de- manding it. Paulsen should be consi- dered a national candidate be- cause he "has qualified to be on the ballot (in New Hamp- shire) and is apparently ac- tively the FCC said. PAT PAULSEN candidate New deadline for network OTTAWA (CP) The Cana- dian Radio Television Commis- sion has given the CTV Televi- sion Network Ltd. more time to present plans on network reor- ganization. The CRTC announced here that the new deadline for sub- milting plans is the end of February. The commission ordered the network in November to pre- pare a plan by Jan. 31 which would ensure that CTV fulfills Canad i a n programming and other CRTC requirements. Murray Chercoyer, CTV pres- ident, has publicly told the CRTC on several occasions that the network is financially hard- pressed to extend service to new areas in Canada while in- creasing Canadian content in programming. The CRTC and the network have both carried out studies of the CTV's financial posilion. Neither body has made public the findings of these studies but it is understood that the way the network is organized is one of the major reasons for CTV's dif- ficulties. The network is organized along co-operative lines with member stations having a share in ownership.
