Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 25, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta Tuesday, February 25, 1975 THE I.ETHBRIDQE HERALD 9 U.S. treads cautiously in subcontinent Big boy Something is furrowing the massive brow of this gorilla at a Tokyo zoo. It could have been a female gorilla, or perhaps the question of what to have to; eat. He didn't volunteer an answer, and no one was about to press him for an answer. Time won't submit to content quotas OTTAWA (CP) Time magazine will not submit to any Canadian content quotas set by the federal government, Time Canada Ltd. president Stephen S. LaRue of Toronto said Mon-. day. It would be impossible for the Canadian edition of Time to meet a revenue department formula requiring it to be at least 80 per cent different in content from the U.S. parent publication, Mr. LaRue said in an interview. "This means that the government would be deter- mining the content of a news magazine regardless of what happens in the way of news around the world or within Canada each he said. Mr. LaRue has asked for a meeting with Revenue Minister Ron Basford to ob- tain clarification of the for- mula which is related to com- ing federal legislation to eliminate special tax privileges for advertisers in the Canadian editions of Time and Reader's Digest. Mr. Basford said Friday that Time, Reader's Digest and a number of.smaller publications will be judged by the revenue department as Canadian, with advertisers able to claim tax deductions for advertising costs, if they are 80 per cent different in content from editions publish- ed in other countries. If they are 60 per cent different in content or less, they will be considered foreign and advertisers no longer will be able to deduct advertising costs, Mr. Basford said. Special con- sideration would have to be given to any publication fall- ing within the 60-to-80-per- cent range, he said. In addition the publications must meet.two other re- quirements 75 per cent Canadian ownership and freedom from any licensing arrangements with parent publications. Mr. LaRue said the formula could mean that the weekly Canadian edition of Time, with subscribers, would have to contain 80 per cent different news from the contents of the U.S. edition. "We are in the business of reporting what he said. "How do you make news 80 per cent different from what actually If such quotas are to be applied to Time they also should affect other big news reporting organizations such as the CBC and The Star and The Globe and Mail, two Toronto newspapers, Mr. LaRue said. Mr. LaRue said it was un- reasonable to assume that news could be manipulated to meet a content formula. UN-BLOCKS CLOGGED DRAINS FASTER SAFER LESS COST Mel Godlonton 2219-2nd Ave. N., Lethbridge 327-74OO ALMOST EVERYWHERE YOU GOI 'Sanitation for Nation By BRUCE LEVETT WASHINGTON (CP) The United States, in lifting its long standing arms embargo against Pakistan and India, has come up with a cautious cash on delivery program in contrast to its fabulous arms loans and give away procedures in effect in other areas. In announcing that program, state department spokesman Robert Anderson says his country does not in- tend to upset the strategic balance in the subcontinent or return to its pre-1965 role as a major arms broker in the region. In essence, the U.S. wants to see a continuation of recon- ciliation between India and Pakistan and, at the same time, improve its own relationships with both countries. "We do not intend to stimu- late an arms Anderson says. In that regard Pakistan, at least, is in accord. "Pakistan has no desire to enter a nuclear or conven- tional weapons race with In- dia or any other says M. I. Butt, information minister for the Pakistan em- bassy here. Pointing out that India's own domestic production of sophisticated weaponry is supplemented by large-scale imports from the Soviet Union, Butt says: "All Pakistan wants is ex- clusively defensive ar- maments which will provide a credible deterrent to a poten- tial aggressor." So far, Pakistan has made no recent applications for for' mal commitments, but has in- dicated a need for anti-tank weapons and anti-aircraft weapons. American officials see the lifting of the 10-year-long em- bargo against Pakistan as necessary to end a situation in which an ally has been denied the right to buy arms to de- fend herself against what that ally sees as threats from such surrounding countries as India and Afghanistan. Pakistan has expressed serious concern over India's nuclear explosion last May, made possible through India's purchase of Canadian atomic technology that was supposed to be exclusively for non- military purposes. "Our reaction was open and Butt says. "We called for a guarantee against the threat of a nuclear attack on non-nuclear-weapon states in our region." It was a reaction, that Paki- stan carried through the United Nations in the hope that South Asia could be declared a nuclear weapons- free zone. U.S. caution in the matter is highlighted by the fact that it kept its new ambassador to Saxbe, at- torney-general during the tag end of the Watergate scandal cleanup cooling his heels in Bangkok, Thailand, until lifting of the embargo could be made final. The U.S. didn't want him presenting his credentials in New Delhi at the same mo- ment. Saxbe has expressed op- position to the lifting of the embargo but has promised to go along with his country's policy. Indian officials have said privately and publicly that re- sumption of even limited arms sales to Pakistan could damage the improving state of relations between India and the U.S. The U.S., however, claims not to see it that way. U.S. officials argue that it is as much in India's interest to have a secure Pakistan as it is in the interest of Pakistan her- self. How's Your Hearing?
