Let Your Transit System Help You! crop conditions across Canada, DBS said Prairie farmers have most of their crops in the ground and that the recent rains should spur uniform growth. Germination has been spotty in some areas due to dry weather. The reports are compiled from telegrams sent to Ottawa Tuesday from field correspondents. The report includes a special j note on rust and grasshopper j conditions. A few lepf rust and stem rust spores have been found in spore traps in Western Canada, but conditions have not favored infection. No rust is reported. Grasshopper eggs started to hatch about May 24 in the West, three weeks earlier than in the last several years. Conditions during the last two weeks have favored a uniform hatch and a high survival rate among the young grasshoppers. Conditions by provinces: Alberta: Seeding is virtually ! complete except for some bar-j ley, rapeseed and green feed.

Lindsay has set up a commission to study the efficiency of the state government and to examine the question of New York City becoming the 5lst state. At the same time, the state legislature has passed a bill creating a commission to investigate the city's operation. Creation of both commissions Wednesday climaxed weeks of accrimony between the cdty and state governments over the city's request for new revenues and appeared to support a growing campaign among some city leaders for statehood. In Albany, the Republican leadership surprised the legislators by suddenly taking up the bill providing for a state investigation of the city. "We're worried about a city," said Senate Majority Leader Earl Brydges of Niagara Falls. "We're watching the gradual deterioration of what was once the greatest city in the world." With Gov. Nelson A. Rockefeller in command of Republican majorities in the state Senate and Assembly, the measure was passed over the protests of city Democrats. Brydges said the state commission could consider the possibility of replacing the strong mayor form of government with a city manager system and dividing the city into five separate governments along borough lines. Democrats said the $250,000 appropriation for the commission would be inadequate for it to do any serious work, and Senator S'eymour Thaler of Queens called the action an attempt to "intimidate" Lindsay. Lindsay and Rockefeller strong political rivals, have engaged in name-calling recently over the size of the state and city budgets. Censorship is tightened in South Africa JOHANNESBURG (Reuter) - Censorship is being tightened in South Africa, despite mounting internal opposition. Come on over to the friendly flavour of Golden West The lower house of Parliament recently passed an amendment to the already rigid censorship laws, extending a cloak of secrecy over the Publications Control Board, the over-all censorship watchdog, and permitting it to establish its own "investigator corps." The amendment was presented to the House twice. A public cuttcry greeted its first appearance and forced retraction and modification before the second attempt. Even so, its passage through the House was stormy. Opposition speakers decried the Publications Control Board as a dictator of South African thought and said it was so bigoted and narrow-minded that it had become a laughing-stock. The governing National party's large parliamentary majority ensured the bill's passage. Much was made in the debate of the position of the local magazine Scope which had seven recent issues banned and appealed to the High Court in all seven cases. BOARD OVERRULED In three cases heard so far, the court overruled the board and awarded damages at a cost to the taxpayer of more than $14,000. In the heat of the debate, Deputy Interior Minister Schalk van der Merwe, who had the task of guiding the amendment bill through Parliament, declared there was no censorship in South Africa. Last February, however, Interior Minister Theo Gerdener disclosed that 5,758 publications had been banned since 1963. ! An index of objectionable literature, compiled from govern-ment gazettes which announce the bans, lists almost 13,000 books as prohibited in South Africa. Films, magazines, books and plays are banned or allowed only in expurgated versions here on the grounds of objectionable politics, nudity or violence-usually in that order. Anything on multi-racialism or communism is out. So are Playboy magazine and such films as Bonnie and Clyde. Pi evin score turned down LONDON (Reuter) - A score written by American conductor-composer Andre Previn for a movie starring his wife, actress Mia Farrow, has been dropped by Columbia Pictures because it was unsuitable. Associate producer Barry Appleby told reporters: "No one seemed to like it." The music was written for a movie to be called See No Evil in which Miss Farrow plays a blind girl unwittingly involved in murder. Composer Elmer Bernstein has been assigned the job of writing new music. VARIED SIZES Most minnows do not exceed a few inches in length but some species weigh as much as 50 pounds.
