Australia (Reu- ter) British, New Zealand and Australian forces to be sta- tioned in the Malaysia-Singa- pore region will be organized as a combined force, Defence Min- ister Malcolm Fraser an- nounced today. Fraser said New Zealand and Australia agreed some time ago that their forces in the area would be organized on a com- bined basis. The British decision also to retain forces in the region, taken when a new London gov- ernment came to power lasl June, led to a review of the situ ation by the three countries planners. The first commander of the combined force will be an Aus trail an. CBC comes under attack in tax kefuffle soon, the Commons was told. The Canadian Radio-Televi- ion Commission is considering whether to continue its classifi- cation of the program as neu- rather than American for purposes of its Canadian-content regulations. Sesame Street is produced in New York and carried on the Canadian Broadcasting Corp. network, which is required by CRTC regulations to program 60-per-cent Canadian content. Paul Yewchuck basca) pleaded for the retention of the program in Commons ad- journment debate, calling it a fine educational tool that both taught children to count and made them aware of social problems. Pat H a h o n e y South) replying for Secretary of State Gerard Pelletier, said the government has been in- formed by the CBC that it would continue the program next year if the CRTC does not change its classification, de- spite the fact that its non-com mercial nature keeps many Ca nadian affiliates frcm carrying it because it isn't a money- maker. OTTAWA (CP) Toe CBC came under sharp criticism from the Commons public tc- counts committee again today for a situation in which it found itself paying in back taxes for its employees in the U.S. Stan Schumacher User) said LaMarsh was "certainly justified" when as state secretary sne described some facets of CBC manage- ment as "rotten."

Get more out of life Take the family to a movta By jnCHAEL BEMNETT Canadian Press Staff Writer The Federal Cases call it country, but it's really jail- house rock. What started as a "big house" band at Agassiz Moun- tain prison, 60 miles east of Vancouver, has turned into a unique rehabilitation program for two convicts who might otherwise have been on the in- side looking out. Every week, George, who began serving an indefinite life sentence in 1944, and Les, 25, the group's lead guitarist- singer, get a chance to per- form on the outside with tem- porary honor leave system designed to rein- troduce them to society in small doses. "I'm not doing this as a ticket to says George, a 52-year-old fiddle player from Lethbridge, Alta. "I enjoy as that." George and Les, a native of Saskatoon, are the only two of the group still doing time. Bill, 23, who plays rhythm guitar, has been out since Sept. 11 after serving 29 months for breaking and en- tering. The bass player, Les's brother Barry, and drummer Sandy, a high school student, are what they call "Square steered clear of the law. They were brought in after two original members of the group lost their privi- leges.

"When you're in jail, you mild up a hate, a hate for ev- rybody. "It's maybe not justified, mt you still get it. When you get out, it's so different. You realize everybody thinks it's really great." George, who had his own radio show on CJOC in Leth- bridge in the late 1930s and plays all stringed instruments by ear, says the band experi- ment "helped me 100 per cent and gave me a better outlook on life." "There was some resent- ment from the rest of the guys inside when we first went out, you know, a lot of snide remarks. They thought the warden was showing fa- voritism, but they're pretty quiet now." )ttawa invests more funds to find oil in Arctic area lion for recoven- of the from the employees. He said they are still liable if the U.S. wants to take action against them. Norman Cafik agreed that it would be "totally improper" to try to recover the money from the employees. Mr. Cafik found it questiona- ble, however, that the CBC hadn't started making deduc- tions until 1S69 when it was evi- dent in 1967 that the employees were taxable in the U.S. Mr. Davidson said it was felt that making deductions in 1967 might have weakened the CBC ease against retroactivity. The 1967 U.S. decision was retroac- tive to 1961. In 1969, the final de- cision was retroactive to April 1, 1966. Lloyd R. Grouse Shore) said the Income Tax Act states clearly that the employer must make deductions. He asked by what authority the CBC did "not. and then ruled the lost money unrecoverable. Mr. Davidson repeated that there was no legal authority to make the deductions or to re- cover the funds. Jack Bigg a former RCMP sergeant who be- came a lawyer, said there is "a civil right" to recover money from "people who have been un- Later, however, when Mr. Davidson made it clear the U.S. could still sue the employees themselves for the same amount the CBC had paid, Mr. Bigg suggested action to protect the employees from this event- uality.

Her mother, Mrs. C. A. Myers, was charged with inteni ,o murder after the child tolc wlice she had been placed in scalding water as punishment for drinking grape juice. Authorities were quoted in an Associated Press story Jan. 27 as saying tte child told them drinking grape is against the re- ligion of her family, described as Seventh-day Adventists. This statement has been vigorously denied by Seventh-day Adven- tist spokesmen, who said noth ing in their faith restricts the use of grape juice.
