PAUL QUASHES RUMOR In response to rumors of a Beatles tour, ex-Beatle Paul McCartney says the disbanded foursome are on a friendly basis but will not perform together again. LATE COMPOSER HONORED A bust of George Gershwin was presented to Carnegie Hall to mark the 50th anniversary of the late composer's debut at the hall OTTAWA (CP) Pierre Juneau, chairman of the Canadian Radio-Television Commission, raised doubts this week about rapid extension of cable television to small, remote communities throughout the country, "While we still aren't able to provide sewers to everyone it is imprudent to establish that cable TV is a basic necessity of Mr. Juneau told reporters at a CRTC hearing. It was basically a ques- tion of economics, Were Halifax cable subscribers willing to pay considerably more in order that cable TV would be provided to all Nova Scotians? Mr, Juneau's comments followed a series of penetrating questions he posed to a group of Maritime cable operators about rapid expansion of cable service to small communities. He said the Ontario and New Brunswick governments ar.e concerned that cable not be limited to large and medium-sized com- munities. How was this problem to be solved? After an exchange, Senator A. I. Barrow, president of Halifax Cablevision Ltd., said the costs of providing cable are "a migraine headache to us and I don't think it is only our migraine headache." Senator Barrow was heading a group of 13 New Brunswick and Nova Scotia cable operators reporting on their efforts to establish a cable network. NO AGREEMENT He told the commission there is still no agreement between the cable operators and the telephone companies on rates for providing microwave facilities to the cable companies. The telephone company microwave services would bring in television signals (o the cable firms. A letter to the commission from Paul Creaghan, New Brunswick minister of economic growth, said a provincial study showed that extension of cable to all communities with more than people is economically feasible. He pressed for quick provision of cable to Saint John and Sussex in New Brunswick, The Nova Scotia cable firms include two from Halifax, and one each from Dartmouth, Wolfville, Lunenburg, Digby Middleton, Windsor, Springhill, New Glasgow and Smith Cove. There is also one cable firm from Saint John and one from Sussex. Mr. Juneau said public authorities like the Maritime premiers want rapid development of cable with a fair deal for small communities. How was cable to be introduced in small communities? Sen. Barrow replied that some provinces like Nova Scotia seem to want educational and cultural activities broadcast to all parts of the province. PROVINCES HELP? He said he has asked provincial authorities why cable firms should bear the cost. Why should the provinces not provide help in getting microwave facilities to carry TV signals, to small communities? Provincial officials have not answered the question, he said. Pressed further by Mr. Juneau. the senator said he feels the CRTC's approach of limiting cable TV to individual cable operators is better than handing cable over to the telephone companies. He said he has heard that satellite communications might reduce the cost of cable service in the long run. Later, Mr, Juneau told reporters that not everyone wants cable while sewers are in much greater demand. Vet sewer service had not been provided everywhere. The commission last year granted cable territory to the Maritime cable operators. They were to establish an agreement on joint ownership of the receiving antenna at Chamcook, N.B., basically 8 cable network. The antenna picks up distant U.S. and Canadian television signals, RESTRICT OWNERSHIP Senator Barrow said the group wants to restrict ownership of (he antenna to Halifax Cablevision, Dartmouth Cable TV Ltd, and Fundy Cablevision Ltd, of Saint John with the others paying a rental fee. It also did not want to proceed with deletion of U.S. commercials from American TV signals until the outcome of court battles between Canadian cable owners and American television stations is resolved. He said the telephone companies providing microwave services and the cable operators are sull far apart on rates. The cable operators have until the end of June to resolve these problems. They have already received two extensions from the commission. Tuesday's hearing was called to hear progress reports from the cable owners.
