Recent interviews with 10 of le 12 committee members fur- ther indicated that a full report on the issue, including recom- mendations, is likely to be is- ued early in April. Only two of those interviewed expressed outright opposition to the principle of televising Com- mons business: Paul St. Pierre L-Coast-Chilcotin) and Am- brose Peddle (PC-Grand 'alls-White The others not only endorsed tie proposal in general terms iut also expressed a fair degree f confidence that the technical xrcblems involved can be over- at a reasonable cost. All those who supported TV of the Commons and committees >ased their remarks on the as- sumption that the operation would be controlled by the Com- mons and the service sold, eased or given to the existing TV networks for distribution. OPPOSE NETWORK ROLE All committee members inter- viewed strongly opposed sugges- tions that the publicly-owned CBC or the private CTV net- work be permitted to cany out he actual televising. The reason most often given was that private cameramen, producers and directors would iend to concentrate on embar- rassing or funny moments and overlook the "real meaning" of Commons business. The strongest influence so far on the committee appears to have been a recent visit by committee members in introducing a simi-i takes an Easter break early in Nations in New 1 lar system here.

The committee has asked a number of UN TV personnel to assess the technical difficulties The committeealso will travel to Washington this winter to study the methods used there to cover congressional business. Committee chairman Gordon Blair (L-Grenville-Carteton) said he hopes to have the TV question settled and a report tabled before the Commons Takes long road to whip arthritis EDMONTON (CP) A Uni-r He has also tested a large versity of Alberta researcher has spent the last two years de- veloping a test to help doctors identify systemic lupus erythe- matosus, a rare disease that strikes only about four out of every persons, Why so much time and energy on such a rare disease? Because this research could eventually lead to tests, treat- ment and perhaps even a cure for rheumatoid arthritis, which cripples about two out of every 100 Canadians, said Dr. John Percy, 32-year-old director of the University of Alberta's rheu- matic disease unit. "Personally speaking, I wouldn't have got involved in this unless I could see relevance to the more prevalent diseases, such as arthritis." LITTLE DATA Doctors know little about Probe shooting death of boy at St. Albert ST. ALBERT (CP) RCMP today were investigating the death of Morgan Lawrence Johnson, 11, following a shoot- ing incident in this town on the northwestern outskirts of Ed- monton. Police said the boy had been playing with friends at a resi- dence in the town when the in- cident occurred. He was pronounced dead on arrival at hospital.

OPEN TILL P.M. THURSDAY and FRIDAYI NO REFUNDS NO EXCHANGES LIMITED QUANTITIES causes of either lupus or arthri (is, but they do know the two have certain similarities, Dr. Percy said. Almost all patients with untreated lupus eventually get arthritis. Systemic lupus erythematosus is a generalized body disease that can affect almost any one of the connective tissues, such as skin, kidneys, a manner very like even blood, he said. Skin lupus is fairly easy to identify, but there are few tests that will distinguish lupus from other diseases when internal tis- sues are affected. Any person can form antibod- ies, specific particles that kill foreign materials such as germs or viruses. But in persons suffering from lupus, the body forms "self-im- mune" antibodies that mil de- stroy some of its own cells in- stead. DOCTOR TESTS THEORY Five years ago Percy began testing the theory that patients who had lupus in inter- nal tissues such as kidneys where it often is confused with other diseases, also would show the self-immune antibodies in a piece of normal skin. "In 80 per cent of 127 patients known to have lupus, we have found the antibodies in normal he said. number of persons who suffered from other diseases but showed no signs of lupus. Less than 1C per cent of this control group showed evidence of the self-im inline antibodies. All the patient must contrib- ute is a tiny snip of skin which can be examined under the mi- croscope. Several other university centres around the world are testing the theory, including the University of Colorado, where Dr. Percy worked for two years before coming to Edmonton. He is a native of Newcastle England, where he complete! post-graduate medical work and took special studies in rheu matic diseases. Dr. Percy's research is fi nanced by the Canadian Arthri tis and Rheumatism Society and he is assisted by two lab technicians and a graduate phy sitian. "In the past, rheumatoid dis eases were the poor far as research monies tuberculosis and heart disease and the other killing diseases Now that we've made some progress in controlling these lat ter, we're finding the time am money for research in the disa bling diseases." land on the TV issue, saying he ias no firm indication on how co-operative individual comniit- ee members will be when it comes to drafting a report. Mr. St. Pierre and Mr. Peddle lad widely different reasons for opposing the use of TV in the louse and committees. Mr. St. Pierre said he objects >ecause of problems that could arise from misrepresentation by cameramen, poor editing and a variety of other dangers which might harm the dignity of Par- iament over the long run. Mr. St. Pierre is a former news- wper man. Mr. Peddle said he could not approve expenditures of large sums of money to install TV in he Parliament buildings while a number of areas in Canada still could not afford any TV service at all. FAVORS PRINCIPLE John Reid head of the Commons broadcasting committee, said he favors the principle of TV in the House but he wanted an- swers to many specific ques- tions before venturing approval "The camera can be the big gest liar of all because it may present only part of a picture and claim to be representing the whole he said. Mr. Reid said problems oi control, lighting, cost and distri- bution must be solved before the committee can recommem use of TV in the Commons. Robert McCleave (PC-Hali fax-East a former broadcaster, said it would prob- ably cost between and mil lion to install TV facilities in the Commons and some committee rooms. It could also mean dras tic changes in the Parliamen buildings to enable installation of facilities. Stanley Knowles nipeg North Centre) said there should be no question about the value of TV coverage of Com mons business. "It means more information and we need that.

Hicks, president of the Sun Life Assurance Co. of Canada, told the company's 100th an- nual meeting here that a high rate of savings is the best de- fence against inflation. "It is only through a high rate of savings that we can maintain real economic growth, a satisfactory level of employment and provide the productive strength needed to tackle such problems as en- vironmental decay, and in- equality of opportunity." The chief responsibility of North American governments at present is to create a tax environment that stimulates a higher rate of private savings and this requires a major shift in tax policy, he added. "We must move away from policies that penalize saving." Mr. Hicks said that at the end of 1970 total life insurance in force was with 60 per cent of this in Can- ada, 25 per cent in the United States and 15 per cent in Brit- ain and other countries. The assets of the company at the end of 1970 amounted to an increase of million during the year.
