The study, commissioned by the Arctic Institute of North America and made public Tues- day, said implementation of the proposed program with no prov- ision for northern input "can have a devastating and quite probable irreversible impact un the people of the North." The report says the real com- munications needs of norther- ners include community radio stations, regional and local programming for radio and TV, community videotape projects, improved telephone communica- tions and educational television.

Egg licence in Quebec QUEBEC (CP) The Quebec cabinet has approved a proposal that certain chain store owners, distributors and wholesalers bs required by March 1 to acquire a government licence to sell eggs. The approved order-in-coun- :1, published here, said the decision to impose the licensing regulations was taken Jan. 2fi by the Quebec Agricultural Marketing Board. The licences, valid for a year and costing will he manda- tory for: chain store owner with at least four grocery stores and distribution centre supplying them: for resale to chain stores, food retailers, government or reli- g i o u s institutions, hospitals, schools, restaurants or to any person other than a domestic consumer; person operating a wholesale business in foodstuffs and other products generally re- quired by retail grocery stores and having a distribution centre used for that business. A request for a permit must be submitted in writing to the board before Feb. 29. Benoit Lavigne of Montreal. president of the board, said in an interview today that inten- tion of the regulation is to clar- ify who is marketing eggs in the province. A spokesman for the agricul- ture department here said the decision will prevent the prolif- eration of who are fouling up agreements between the board and bonafide distribu- tors which are intended to limit sale of non-Quebec producer! eggs to 45 per cent. days and hurt a lot. Why, at 54, did she do it? "I decided to have plastic sur- gery after seeing myself on the Sonny and Cher she said. "I wore a dog collar neck- lace and my neck hung over it on one side like I had a horrible growth and the bags under my eyes had reached the point of no return. "So I turned myself into Dr. Franklyn she said, re- ferring to her surgeon. "While at it 1 decided to have my nose always had a de- viated septum that interfered with my breathing."

LOS ANGELES (AP) Rhonda Fleming and her third husband came out of tne rooo.OOO home they share in sub- urban Bel Air Monday and drove in separate cars to testify at court hearings in which each is seeking a divorce. The red-haired actress con- tends that before their marriage on March 27, 1960, Hall Bartlett pomised her a half-interest in all his holdings, including his in- heritance from Ms father, a Kansas City grain merchant. Miss Fleming's lawyer, Mar- vin M. Mitchelson, told Superior Court Judge Joseph A. Wapner that he valued Bartlett's assets more than million, a fig- ure disputed by Bartlett's law- yer. Allen E. Susman. Court records disclosed that the Bel Air home is in both their names and, under a prior court approved arrangement, Miss Fleming, 46, stays in one half of the house with her own gardners and maids while Bart- lett lives in the other half with his own house staff. A court ruling in the twin di- vorce suit is expected in week. SEEK NEW C.OALS MONTREAL (CP) J. W. G.

Dr. Theodor 0. Diener, has named the new agent a "vi- rcid." Diener said the new agent, which he described as a "novel type of pathogen" or disease- causing agent, is about 80 times smaller than the smallest known virus. Conventional viruses, may be involved in a wide j range of human diseases from cancer to heart disease, consists of a core of nucleic acid, called duction, Treasure Island, star- ring Graeme Campbell, will re- turn to the playhouse stage next Christmas.

A CBC poll showed that delayed sports as hockey games screened a week caus- ing little discontent. And the frontier package could be easily increased by broadcasting longer tapes.

He said in an interview that ho has "partially isolated the agent" and has determined its existence through complex tests. The agent causes a plant dis- ease known as potato spindle tuber disease, which causes po- tatoes to growr long and spindly and, in addition, makes their taste unpleasant. Vii'oids, Deiner said, could conceivably be the agents re- sponsible for human diseases previously believed to be caused by viruses, but from which sci- entists have been unable to iso- late a virus. One of these diseases, he said, could be multiple sclerosis, a neurologieal disease. VICTORIA (CP) Dave Bar- rett, New Democratic Party leader, urged the British Co- lumbia government to estab- lish a program whereby people in the province could retire nt the age of 55. He told the legislature the province should set up its own pension plan, allowing B.C. residents to retire at 55 rather than C5. This would have the double barrelled effect of tak- ing some persons off welfare and allowing others to retire when they could still enjoy "their golden years."
