Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 28, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 6 THE IETHBRIDGE HERAID Wednesday, July IS, 1971 Companies buy Quebec cable TV holdings OTTAWA (CP) A group of Quebec companies, including a provincial government agency, have been given permission by the Canadian Radio-Television Commission to buy large cable television holdings in Quebec. The decision was included in CRTC announcements released Tuesday approving a multi-mil- lion dollar deal which would re- duce the holdings of U.S.-owned Columbia Broadcasting System Inc. in Canadian cable compa- nies to 20 per cent. The compli- cated deal includes cable sys- tems in Quebec, Ontario and British Columbia. In the Quebec decision, the commission said the purchase of Quebec holdings would not lead to a breach of a govern- ment policy prohibiting provin- cial agencies from obtaining broadcasting licences. The CRTC said the Quebec Deposit and Investment Fund, a provincial agency, would hold 30 per cent of National Cablevision Ltd. shares. This would not make it the licence-holder as it would not have majority control of the company. National Cablevision would be the licence-holder in the Quebec undertakings. Cable systems in Toronto, Vancouver, Victoria, Coquitlam, B.C., Maple Ridge. B.C., and Mission, B.C., will be owned by subsidiaries of Classic Develop- ments Ltd. CBS would have a 20-per-cent interest in Classic developments while other Canadian investors in the existing systems would hold 25 per cent of the stock. The remaining 55 per cent would bo offered to the Cana- dian public in a new share of- fering. The Vancouver-based Welsh group would have a substantial portion of the 25 per cent held by existing Canadian sharehold- ers. The commission rejected suggestions that the 20 per cent held by CBS still might repre- Moon backside probe set HOUSTON (AP) Why is the mysterious backside of the moon, which is never tinned to earth, vastly different in fea- tures than the familiar, intcnse- ly-sludiecl fronlside? Why does the moon rotate on axis once every 2fl same time it takes the moon to circle the earth? Scientists hope Apollo 15 will provide new information that could answer these fundamental questions about the moon and its backside, which United States astronauts won't visit in CARPET and UNO (Complete Free Estimates!

The new information is ex- pected to come from a battery of cameras and instruments on the Apollo 15 command ship En- deavour, never carried before on lunar missions. Astronaut Alfred Woi'den will operate them from lunar orbit while crew mates David Scott and James Irwin explore the lunar surface. The most important question scientists hope the cameras and instruments will answer is the moon's shape. CRUST THICKER The popular theory is that the crust on the moon's backside is 2.5 miles thicker than the front- side crust. The theory is used to explain why the moon's far side is devoid of the vast mares or seas that characterize the front- DUET HAS DOUBLE BUBBLE (COUNT 'EM) CASTLE WINES LIMITED side and why one side of the moon always faces earth. After the moon was .formed by the gathering together of cosmic dust and gas, the theory goes, the mass cooled, forming a ciust with a molten core. Meteorites then bombarded the crust, carving out great bas- ins. On the frontisde where the crust was thinner, holes were punched through the crust and hot lava welled up, filling the basins and forming the mares. But on the backside, the crust was too thick and the basins never filled with lava. "The question of the differ- ence in thickness of crust is a very fundamental question that has to he answered." said Dr. Harold Masursky of the U.S. Geological Survey. "If the dif- ference exists, it says some- thing happened in the very early stages of the moon to give a different crustal thickness." EVIDENCE DESTROYED "The same thing may have happened on earth but because of the great floating continents, all that evidence has been wiped out. It may be the earth also has a different thickness of crust. "So the moon might provide the first chapter in the develop- ment of the continents and ocean basins on chap- ter now missing." Scientists also believe differ- ence in crust thickness could ex- plain why one side of the moon always faces question that has baffled astronomers for centuries. The earth and moon are in a "gravitational lock." The moon rotates on its axis once every 28 days, the same time it takes to circle the earth. As a result only one side ever faces earth. The surface features of the backside remained a mystery until 1959 when a Russian spacecraft sent back the first pictures.

As to the feasibility of sepa- rating the Toronto system, York Cablevision Ltd., from the deal, the commission said the success of the Classic proposal deoends on the sale of shares to the pub- lie. The York system would con- tribute greatly to the success of the public sale. NDPers not upset by Liberal switch REGINA (CP) Premier Allan Blakeney said here his new government is riot upset about the Opposition's change of mind over debating the throne speech at the special session of the legislature which opens Wednesday. "It doesn't upset just changes our Mr. Blake- ney tiold a news conference. He said he had received word from Acting Liberal Leader D. G. Steuart thtt the Opposition intends now to debate the throne speech. It announced earlier it would waive the privi- lege. Jlr. Blakeney also said it has been the government's inten- tion, and still is, to pass a spe- cial bill to allow Mr. Steuart to take his seat in the legislature. There had been a judicial re- count of ballots ir Mr. Steuart's Unknown to portray Churchill LONDON (AP) Simon Ward, virtually unknown as an actor, is on the blink of star- dom because he looks like the late Sir Winston Churchill. He will portray Churchill in his years as a young cavalry of- ficer in India, South Africa and the Sudan. The film, called Young Winston, is based on the autobiography My Early Years. Producer Carl Foreman plans to spend million on it. Foreman and director Rich- ard Attenborough spent six months seeking the right actor. They talked to 400 aspirants, among them big names, and screen-tested a dozen. In the end, Ward's physical resemblance to Churchill clinched the part, but a solid grounding in the theatre didn't hurt. "To tell you the truth. I didn't really believe it Ward said. "The resemblance really only struck me when I was watching some rushes of a sequ- ence reconstructing 40 really hairy minutes Churchill spent under fire when a Bi itish Army train was ambushed by the Boers in South Africa. "Then, quite suddenly, I could see it there wa? a strong likeness about the eyes and the forehead.'1 Now 29, Ward joined Britain's National Youth Theatre at 13. Since becoming a professional he has worked almost entirely in the theatre or in television. Boy or girl? don't bother me-Trudeau OTTAWA prime minister, asked Tuesday whe- ther he would prefer a girl or a boy, expressed only a pref- erence for privacy. "I'd rather not make any comments on that aspect of my Mr. Trudeau told a news conference gently. He was smiling. "Babies are made every day and my case was no dif- erent." His office announced last last Friday that his wife Mar- garet is pregnant and ex- pects to Rive birth in Decem- ber. The Trudeaus were mar- ried March 4. Army worms hit Calgary area CALGARY (CP) Many residents in the Hunitington Hills area of northwest Calgary refuse to go near their back yards because of a plague of caterpillars. And, city council ordered its commissioners to take imme- diate action to hall, the %-inch "army worms" which struck the arm last Friday. "They're up there in the mil- said Aid.

Hjertaas. Under the Election Act, a member is not permitted to sit in the legislature until at least five days after a recount. Mr. Steuart had told an ear- lier news conference that the Opposition decided to debate the throne speech following a letter from Mr. Blakeney indicating that there may be other unspec- ified legislation introduced. The earlier agreement to waive de- bate was ma'de on the under- standing the Opposition would be informed in advance of in- tended legislation, said Mr. Steuart. 'SAVING CLAUSE' "That was just a saving Mr. Blakeney said. There may be other legisla- tion but there were some diffi- culties in getting it drafted, so :he government was unable to be more specific. While the government intends lo pass legislation to allow Mr. Steuart lo sit on the session's opening day, it had no intention of making the same provision for Reg Cross, NDP candidate Gravelbourg, and Liberal Allan Guy in Athabasca. Judicial recounts were being held in froth constituencies. "If this had been a short ses- sion, we would have done the same for the premier said. Mr. Blakeney said he dislikes [laving the legislature fill seats. "That is the job of the voter." NOMINATE SPEAKER The premier also announced the government will nominate Fred Dewhurst of Wadena as Speaker and John Brocklebank as deputy speaker. Mr. Blakeney said the govern- ment had intended to introduce a motion to allow night and Sat- urday sittings but now is recon- sidering because tltere does not appeal' to be an urgency in fin- ishing the session.

New Britain (Reu- ter) The shaken people of New Britain and New Ireland moved through theif ravaged villages Tuesday assessing damage caused by earthquakes and a series of tidal waves. The earthquakes rocked the islands at the eastern end of the territory of New Guinea Mon- day and Tuesday. The one Mon- day is believed to have been the strongest in the world since the Alaskan shock of 196-4. It lasted for nearly a minute and was followed by three tidal-waves. Dozens of houses in native vil- lages were washed away and the waters tossed boats and cars through Rabaul's main street and shopping centre. Two more quakes shook New Britain, 55 miles northeast of New Guinea, Tuesday and destroyed several thattch huts, authorities in Port Moresby re- ported. The quakes, fourth and fifth in the New Guinea region in two weeks, registerd 6.5 on the Hi- chter scale. NO DEATHS REPORTED There were no immediate re- ports of any deaths. Monday's earthquake regis- tered 8.3 on the Richter scale and touched off tidal waves that Joint college plan discussed EDMONTON (CP) The Alberta and Saskatchewan governments have discussed a proposed new community col- lege for the Vermilion, AKa., and Lloyd minster, Sask., areas. Education Minister Robert Clark said Tuesday. The Alberta minister said he and Gordon Macmurchy, Sas- iatchewan's education minis- ,er, discussed the matter by telephone on Monday. Mr. Macmurchy, who be- came education minister after h e New Democratic Party won in the June 23 provincial election, had said earlier that neither he nor his department lad any knowledge of a pro- college for the area. Lloydminster is situated on the Alberta-Saskatchewan bor- der and Vermilion is 37 miles west of it. When Mr. Clark announced the project last week, he said he expects that some Sas- katchewan students will attend the: college, with the Saskatch- ewan government sharing in the cost of accommodating them. Mr. Clark said the college board will be established this fall and it will be Hie board's responsibility to negotiate with Saskatchewan. The college is expected lo start operations in September, 1972. The Lloydminster section is to use space in existing schools while the Vermilion campus, which will be the ma- jor section of the college, will be situated in the Vermilion Agricultural and Vocational College.

Planes will fan out over the entire coast today to look for other damage. A tidal wave was reported near Nissan Island, north of here, and officials waited in vain for word from its residents. New Ireland's second higgest centre, Mamalanai, also was hard hit with its wharf cracked and administration quarters se- verely damaged. The quake Monday equalled the biegest in the territory's his- is believed to be the first time in the world that two quakes registering more than eight on the Richter scale have occurred in the same area wi'.hin 12 days. The quake sent recording gear right off the measuring paper at Riverwood College Ob- servatory in Sydney, Australia, a college spokesman said. Two Australian destroyers are racing to the worst-hit areas to assist with scarch-and-i'escuo work.
