Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 3, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Press council exercises yery powerful sanction I By HAHOLD MORRISON LONDON (CP) Britain's Press Council exercises "a very powerful says Lord Pearce, chairman of the 20- membcr "watchdog" over press integrity. Any person can make a com- plaint to the council about pub- lished matter and if it adjudi- cates in his favor, the editor in- volved publishes the council's findings, no matter how dis- tasteful this may be to the newspaper or periodical. "People sometimes think mis- takenly that this not a very powerful Pearce said in a speech today before the Commonwealth Press Union. "But in fact it is. "For it is very distasteful lo an editor to have to publish in his own newspaper an accouni of a matter in which he bchavet badly in the view of fair-minded jury composed of colleagues in profession and some I lion must sign an undertaking members of the public who aro I not to seek damages against the respected in other walks of life. "Thus the council provides he public with a means of ap- >ealing against the decisions of xlitors who treat them unfairly. The council is not a cudgel to be picked up by pressure groups wishing lo beat editors about the head. Broad attacks upon the policy of a newspaper or campaigns by those who believe they know better how a news- paper should be run will get no assistance from it." SIFT COMPLAINTS Britain's council is composed of 20 persons appointed by newspapers or periodicals and six non-press members. They sift through some 400 com- plaints a year with only about 100 reaching the point of a hear- ing. Those who agree to adjudica- CROSS OF VALOUR CHOIX SEIA STAR. OF COURAGE ETOILE OU COURAGE MEMLCFMAVERY Public service head misquoted OTTAWA (CP) The Com- mons opposition went into mild uproar Friday over remarks at- tributed to John J. Carson, chairman of Ihe public service commission, about some public servants being "corrup t i b 1 o slobs." But Treasury Board Presi- dent Charles Drury told the Commons that Mr. Carson has protested to the editor of the newspaper carrying the re- marks in connection with the context in which the quotes were taken.

(AP) _ Too much exercise may make a person fatter, not thinner, says Dr. Richard Ahrens, an assistant professor o{ food and nutrition at the University Maryland who recently completed a five- year study at the inter-action of diet and physical activity. Ahrens said his research with rats indicated that a loo vigorous exercise program, like too much relaxation, bould cause a person to gain weight. "Once exercise became so vigorous that it was actually stressful, that the animals did not enjoy it any more bacause it was a real chore, then they began to put on more Ahrens said the rodent study suggested that the aver- age North American on an av- erage diet is likely to stay slimmer weeding his garden or walking his dog than run- ning five miles a day. His findings were published In Agricultural Research magazine. the unanimous consent of the House to have the Commons committee on miscellaneous es- timates study the remarks car- ried in Thursday's Ottawa Jour- !l. It was the second consecutive ectic day in the Commons for ic public service commission, 'hose annual report was re- erred to the committee Thurs- ay because it appeared to mply that the traditional merit ystem of hiring and promotion vithin the public service was eing abandoned. CALLS FOR INQUIRY Conservative Leader Robert Stanfield said today the alleged tatement by Mr. Carson is suff- iciently serious to warrant an inquiry by the president of the reasury board. The remarks could have a serious effect on morals. Mr. Erury assured the House :hat the committee study of the annual report would be broad enough to include questioning Mr. Carson on his alleged quotes. Stanley Knowles nipeg North Centre) said that since It will take several days to liave committee sittings, Mr. Drury should "forthwith" disso- ciate the government from any suggestion that the public serv- ice includes corruptible slobs. Mr. Drury said he had no hes- itation in saying it is the view of the government that the public service is not composed of cor- ruptible slobs. The Ottawa Journal quoted Mr. Carson as asking, during a speech to the Public Personnel Association: "Is it our fault if it is only the corruptible slobs who stay on. newspaper tlirough the courts. "If he has a legal remedy and wants to pursue it and get dam- ages, let him so Pearce said. "We are not going to go over the same ground and per- haps forestall the courts reach a different conclusion which would be an embarrass- ment to juslice. "Nor would it be fair to the editor it we were treated as a cheap trial run to find out whether he had any defence." Operating without any written code of ethics, the council lias been in existence for about 19 years. It has no special right bestowed on it by the press in- dustry but defends the right of the man on the street to express Ms honest opinions on any mat- ter o( public importance. HAVE NO IMMUNITY "Therefore no newspaper or magazine in the country can claim immunity from the coun- cil's Pearce contin- ued. "The mere act of publish- ing a newspaper or magazine exposes tiie publisher to public comment and therefore to com- ment from the press council. The press itself must be vulner- able to the same kind of public- ity as it inflicts on others." As for a code of ethics, writ- ing a satisfactory code "is a task almost beyond the wit of Pearce suggested. A written code would also impose Its own limitations with battles developing over the niceties ot interpretation. "Without a code, the council Is free to judge any situation and to take account of the NEW BRAVERY AWARDS Above are sketches of three new bravery awards, part of a rrew system of awards and honors announced by the Prime Minister in the House of Commons.

Navy Secretary John Warner called the occasion "a very historic moment" as he pinned the silver star of a rear admiral on Miss Duerk, a 52-year-old direc- tor of the Navy Nurse Corps. Rear-Admiral Duerk, whose nomination was an- nounced April 27, said Ihe promotion "recognizes the importance of our navy women." changing standards of society.

Perarce, 71, is a former Ap- peals Court Judge who recently surveyed Rhodesian opinion on proposed settlement terms with Britan. The decision of his commission that the blacks were overwhelmingly opposed to a settelment with the Ian Smith regime made his name a household word in Britain and much of Africa as well. GIVES GUIDANCE The Press Council, he said, not only adjudicates but often provides substantial guidance on many questions of press eth- ics. For example when it said that paying fees to notorious persons for their memoirs was not in the public interest, publi- cation of such memoirs virtu- ally ceased. It also has pronounced on threats to press freedom and provided its views on proposed legislation that may affect the press, always in the belief that the press must be free. "We believe it must discipline itself to be worthy of that free- he said. "The whole of the procedure Is a volunolry co-operation by the press to see that the public is not unfairly treated. I believe that self-disci- pline of this kind is infinitely preferable to restrictive legisla- tion which must damage free- dom Telesat within estimates OTTAWA (CP) Telesat Canada expects to start com- mercial operations Jan. 1 within the original estimates ol million in expenses, the corpo- ration says in its annual report. Telsat, a company jointly- owned by the government and telecommunications common carriers, says that spending on Canada's domestic communica- tions satellite system was within earlier estimates up to the end of tho fiscal year in 1971.
