Anderson expects RCMP centennial to bring district international notice Broadcaster says CBC should not compete By GREG McINTYRE Staff Writer Canada's public broadcasting system, the CBC should stop competing with private broad- casters and get back to pro- grams for small audiences, the job it was originally created to do, says Bill Hutton, Ottawa bu- reau chief of Selkirk News Ser- vice. The Crown corporation, which last year received a million government subsidy in addition to the million made through advertising, is currently in a state of confusion, Mr. Hutton told a council on public affairs International attention will be focused on Lethbridge and For Macleod celebrations in 1973-74 narking the coming west 100 years ago of the mounted police, predicts Mayor Andy Anderson. Lethbridge's mayor was chairman of a meeting at which a committee of people from both centres and surrounding areas was formed to plan centennial celebrations. The committee will m e e t within a week, said Frank Smith, manager of the Travel and Convention Association of Southern Alberta to create detailed plans. The police, originally the North West Mounted, then the poyal North-Wost Mounted and today the RCMP, came west from Manitoba in 1874 to stamp out the whisky trade at Fort Whoop Up near established their first foi at Fort Macleod. Mr. Smith said the formatio of the early police organizatio is "a very significant Canadia story." He said "in the rest o the world, Canada is large! known by the symbol of the ret coated mounted policeman." Mayor Anderson said the cec tennial celebrations will pa tribute to the early settlers o southern Alberta, as well, "in eluding those very early set tiers, the Indians."

Eichi Uchida, consul-genera1 of Japan, said Canadian ram-seed importation: to the southeast Asian country have increased since the restrictions were liberalized in June, 1971. He said further changes will ikely take place when Japan "probably" remove the tariff on rapeseed in April. When told of the probable lift-ng of the import tariff, Hugh Michael, president of Western Canadian Seed Processors Ltd., said the move is going to make Canadian rapeseed more with soybeans import-id to Japan from the United States and China. "The over all affect will be o make Canadian rapeseed a little more attractive to the Japanese said Mr. i Japanes( He Mid Japan will likely import rapeseed from Canada with a h'ttle more action. It wil result in a bigger market for our rapeseed. He said the move would likely be for rapeseed seed primarily, although Japan has also expressed an interest in oil. He said Japan has- many small crushing plants close to sources of raw material but that there is a movement in that country to close these small plants and to build large, more efficient plants. He said the increased Import of seed would likely be designed to keep the larger plants busy all year. Mr. Michael said Canada was the leading country in knowledge about the formulation of rapeseed for use in livestock feeds. He said this could be one e decision son for Japan to increase Uia import of oils they don't have the ability to use all the rape-seed meal, a by-product of the rapeseed crushing industry, in livestock feeds. He said the livestock producers in Japan were learning this technique rapidly. Mr. Michael said he feels quite confident that in five years, if Canada continues to produce rapeseed, that Japan will increase it's importation from Canada. He said the present trade is to metric tons but this figure will be increased to metric tons in a short time. This theory is valid especially as Japan becomes more ef-fident and accomplished in the use of rapeseed meal in livestock feed. SPARE FURNACE MOTORS 55.00 and UP C and A SHEET METAL LTD. 1709 2 S.

The switch to warmer tem- peratures occured about 11 o'clock last night with a sudden change from 16 below to 6 above. Residents can look forward to highs of 20 above for the week- end with a return to cooler weather Monday or Tuesday. According to weather office reports there's no source of really warm weather around yet. Other than what has been blown away or packed down, there won't be much natural snow removal, either. Highways around Blairmore, Pincher Creek and Cardston are all suffering from a cut- down in visibility caused by blowing snow, but it is still rea- sonably good in most areas. There is slight drifting ex- cept for the road between Pin- cher Creek and Pincher Sta- tion, which is badly drifted. luncheon in Lethbridge. Instead o{ competing in cen- tres such as Edmonton and Winnipeg already adequately served by private broadcasting, the CBC should concentrate on serving smaller communities and special interest groups. The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation should be the nlter- nate station in radio and tele- vision by serving minority tasles for such things as con- certs, drama and "the odd pro- gram about a Canadian com- poser." Mr. Hutton said in Edmonton the CBC station CBX is serv- ing no useful purpose by hav- ing a morning news, weather and talk show when private sta- tions are doing the same thing adequately. In Winnipeg, he said the CBC outlet has risen to number two in popularity, an obvious exam- ple of competing with public money where private industry could do the job. Mr. Hutton attacked the Can- ada Radio Television Commis- sion for "over regulating" pri- vate broadcasting.

A member of the audience challenged Mr. Hutton by point- ing out that "there are a lot of Canadian entertainers getting heard who would never have been heard otherwise." Mr. Hutton shot back, "and some of them don't deserve (to be He said, "I don't think you can put percentages on (Cana- dian 1 don't think you can just put a boxcar figure on it. You have to give people in- centives." He suggested instead of the Canadian content regulation, the government should make money available to help new in- dividuals and productions get started. Both the CBC and privaLo broadcasting companies should be given "a clear definition" by the govemm e n t of what their roles are and how big they can grow. Mr. Hutton said current gov- ernment indecision about what standards private broadcasting companies will have to meet has created an atmosphere of uncertainty surrounding some companies and scared off ad- vertising and investment money.
