Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 26, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta LETHBRIDGE June New CBC service will be made available in Lethbridge CALGARY (CP) CBC plans to have an English language television station operating in Calgary by September, 1975, and bring full CBC service including local programming to southern Alberta by September, 1976, the Canadian Radio-Television Commission was told Tuesday. A CBC delegation headed by Ron Fraser, vice president for corporate affairs, said CBC plans to spend about million in the next two years to have a full-fledged service in southern Alberta. CBC is applying for a license to establish in Calgary a station on Channel 9, with watts video ERP and a directional antenna, and for licenses to set up stations at Exshaw, Banff, Lake Louise and Drumheller to rebroadcast the proposed CBC station in Calgary. Mr. Fraser said by September, 1975, CBC plans to bring full network service to Calgary, and by September, 1976, complete a local studio in Calgary for local programming. Also by September, 1976, CBC service will be made available in Lethbridge. And CBC will have a mobile unit for local programming in other southern Alberta communities, he said. 'CBC's application was accompanied by an application by CFAC-TV of Calgary to disaffiliate with CBC and operate as an independent station. PROBLEMS FOR CJOC-TV Dave Penn, president of Calgary Television Ltd., licensee for said CFAC's disaffiliation with CBC will present some problems, especially to CJOC-TV of Lethbridge. Both CFAC and CJOC are in the Selkirk chain. Mr. Fraser said CBC would like to establish a rebroadcasting station in Lethbridge by September, 1975, but the network's financial resources do not permit it. He said CBC will apply in about a year to have a station in Lethbridge by September, 1976, at a cost of about million. Currently, CJOC has three sources of programming: local, from CFAC and from CBC. CJOC itself has six rebroadcasting stations to serve communities near Lethbridge. Mr. Penn said he is not sure how CJOC wil' operate in the interim period but probably it will continue its programming as it is until it disaffiliates with CBC. Radio station application opposed CALGARY (CP) Foothills Broadcasting Ltd. Tuesday for a license to set up an English language AM applied to the Canadian Radio radio station in Calgary.

Ceremonies, Wed- dings Private Parties whatever the event, we have the ideal accommodation Call now for details P.O. Box 2110. Calgary, Alberta Calgary Convention Centre L frequency of 1280 KHZ, watts power and directional antenna, would include 16 to 19.5 per cent of ethnic programs to serve the minority peoples, said Anthony Mayer, Foothills chairman. Foothills is owned 50 per cent by Mr. Mayer, 25 per cent by Dinosaur Broadcasting Ltd. of Drumheller, Alta., of which Mr. Mayer is a shareholder, 24 per cent by Frank Brand, Foothills president, and one per cent by Stan Church, Foothills secretary. Mr. Mayer said CJDV, the Dinosaur radio at Drumheller, is already producing six hours weekly of ethnic programs in 12 30 minute programs directed at German, Dutch, Finnish, Italian, French, Norwegian, Danish. Chinese. "Ukranian, East Indian, Swedish and Portuguese Audiences. Mr. Brand said the proposed radio station for Calgary will have 32 hours of ethnic programs and 15 hours of religious programs "to serve the Bible Belt" each week. He said with the exception of the Ukrainian program, the other ethnic programs not produced at Drumheller will be transferred to Calgary. The Foothills application was supported by the City of Calgary and numerous ethnic groups but opposed by four radio stations. Opposition came from East Kootenay Broadcasting Co. Ltd., licensee of CKEK Cranbrook, B.C Monarch Broadcasting Co. Ltd., licensee of CHAT Medicine Hat, Calgary Broadcasting Co. Ltd., licensee of CFAC Radio, and CFCN Radio 1060. Gerry Weber of East Kootenay said his company plans to apply for a radio station in Calgary using the same frequency as Foothills. Mr. Weber, who will be president of East Kootenay's proposed Calgary station, also challenged Foothills' claim that it would serve a large ethnic minority group in Calgary. Monarch said CHAT is already experiencing difficulty with its frequency of 1270 because of CFRN Edmonton's frequency of 1260. If the proposed frequency of 1280 for the Foothills station is approved, CHAT's frequency "will be sandwiched between." CFAC and CFCN radios said the proposed station would duplicate services in Calgary and said the commission should give priority considerations for applications for FM radio stations.

Calley's bid turned down WASHINGTON (Reuter) The United States Supreme Court rejected Tuesday a bid by William Calley, former U.S Army lieutenant, aimed at keeping him from being sent to a federal prison for his role in the 1968 massacre of civilians at My Lai, South Vietnam. Calley was convicted of murdering 22 unarmed civilians in the hamlet and. until recently, has been under house arrest. The U.S. Court of Appeals recently refused to delay the beginning of his imprisonment and the Supreme Court declined to disturb that ruling. The court martial that found him guilty in 1971 sentenced the young infantry officer to life imprisonment but this was later cut to 20 years by a military reviewing authority. In April, Army Secretary Howard Callaway chopped the sentence to 10 years and President Nixon, who bad earlier said he would act as the final reviewing authority in the case, quickly announced that he would not disturb the Callaway ruling. Legal authorities say Calley will be eligible to apply for pa- role before the end of this year. ONLY 2 DAYS LEFT!
