The Alberta Association of Students has been asked to ap- point five members, he said and the government will ap- point the remainder of the 10- man group. The committee would reporl to the student assistance board by Oct. 15 "so we can have the benefit" of their advice thi year." Priorities of the govern- ment's non-repayable granl program would be examined and methods to ensure the sys- tem is not misused by appli- cants would be investigated. "For instance, we want to know If undergraduate grants should receive a high priority and consequently whether priorities in other areas such as graduate grants should be reduced."

The structural components would be built at the Soar plant in Toronto. He said Spar also negotiated an option with Hughes for about worth of similar work for satellites Hughes hopes to sell elsewhere. Telesat Canada Corp., set up by the government to award the contract, will have to decide be- tween competing bids to build the satellite from Hughes and RCA Canada Ltd., a Montreal subsidiary owned 99 per cent by RCA Corp. of New York. OPPOSE HUGHES BID i RCA officials and some Cana- dian scientists have argued that awarding the contract to Hughes would destroy acquired Canadian expertise in the satel- lite field and would contradict guidelines for Canadian content in the satellite. The RCA bid to build the sat- ellite was with an in- centive fee of about 10 per cent added if the contract deadline was met and a rider that excess costs to split between Telesat and RCA. Hughes's original offer was but this was raised by when it agreed to make Northern Electric, a whol- ly-owned subsidiary of Bell Can- ada, responsible for installing the satellite's electronics. Mr. Clarke said "the bid that we gave Hughes was consistent with the price of our spacework, which is sold around the world including other contracts with Hughes in the United States." Spar has also marketed satel- lite components in Europe and recently concluded a contract to supply parts for a satellite being built for Japan. The electronics to be supplied by Northern Electric have been estimated to be worth about The company was ex- pected to sub-contract about to U.S. 'suppliers, leaving about Cana- dian content. A government official con- firmed in Ottawa today that Hughes has revised its bid to in- clude the agreement with Spar. The Spar agreement is esti- mated to increase the propor- ion of Canadian content in the rfughes spacecraft to over 20 cent from about 11 per cent, le said. The cabinet, which must make the final decision between ;he Hughes and HCA bids, is scheduled to study the issue Wednesday.
