Alcoholic's spouse part of treatment EDMONTON (CP) The love between a husband and wife which has been replaced by resentment and mistrust due to the problems of alcoholism can be recovered, says Angus Campbell, supervisor of an alcoholism center in Saskatoon. Mr. Campbell was speaking in an interview during the conference of the Canadian Foundation of Alcoholism and Drug Dependencies in Edmonton. He said recovery from alcoholism to sobriety has increased 30 to 40 per cent in the last three years at the Calder Center, since a new program where the alcoholic and his or her non alcoholic spouse took treatment together. "After 10 to 15 years of drinking their communication is low and if there is any at all, as a rule it is very he explained. During a 28 day live in program the alcoholic's spouse is asked to spend at least a week in joint treatment. "It's a very moving thing.. a lot of these people haven't professed their love to each other since their courting days." "They'll live together for years and never tell each other how they feel. It's pretty unbelievable." Mr. Campbell said an attempt is made through counselling, group activity and couple therapy to teach the alcoholic and his spouse new ways to communicate with each other. "The recovery rate has definitely gone up because the spouse is he said. "The emotional scars are pretty deep and we teach them new ways to communicate." Often the spouse realizes he or she too has problems which have only aggravated the alcoholic's condition and added to family problems. QUALITY DENTURE CLINIC EDDY DIETRICH DtnUI Mechanic Ctpttot Fumtturt BMg. PHONE: 328-7684 Taber cablevision license sought by two companies CALGARY (CP) Full cablevision services, including facilities for local programming, were promised Thursday by two companies bidding for a license to serve Taber, Alta. Competing for a cablevision license for the town 30 miles east of Lethbridge are Cablevision Lethbridge Ltd. and Taber Cable Television Ltd. Both companies told the Canadian Radio-Television Commission that they plan to own and control their cable systems. Cablevision Lethbridge, owned 75 per cent by Agra Industries Ltd. and 25 per cent by Selkirk Holdings Ltd., has been serving Lethbridge since 1963. Taber Cable Television is owned 35 per cent by Paar Industrial Electronics Ltd. of Calgary, 30 per cent by Jasper Cable Contractors Ltd. of- Edmonton, 17 per cent by Tom McLaren of Coalhurst, Alta., eight per cent by Kenneth Greentree of Edmonton, five per cent by the Taber Times and five per cent by Ross Gibb of Taber. Both companies propose to carry two Canadian television stations, CJOC-TV, the CBC affiliate, and CFCN-TV-5, the CTV affiliate, in Lethbridge. Both propose two American channels, K78AH and K72AM, rebroadcast from East Butte, Mont. Other identical features are three channels for local originations and CHEC-FM Radio, Lethbridge. In addition, Cablevision Lethbridge proposes to add CHAT-TV Medicine Hat and two channels for background music, while Taber Cable Television proposes CHEC and CJOC AM radios, Lethbridge. Doug Robinson, Cablevision Lethbridge general manager, said his company proposes a complete underground cable system for Taber. The cost is higher, but it "will be more service free, especially in our high-wind area To offset the higher cost of buried cable, Cablevision Lethbridge is proposing a higher installation fee, compared to for Taber Cable Television, which is proposing an aerial system. Proposed monthly fees are for Cablevision Lethbridge and for Taber Cable Television. Mr Greentree, who is general manager of Jasper Cable and president of Taber Cable Television, said if his company's application is successful, he will move to Taber to be tne resident manager. He said Cablevision Lethbridge "is enjoying a monopoly situation" in the area and if it is granted the license, it would be difficult for independent operators to set up cablevision services in the smaller centres of Southern Alberta. Mr. Robinson said the application for the Taber license is in line with his company's plan to provide service to communities surrounding Lethbridge. He said Cablevision Lethbridge has applied for licenses for Coaldale and Hardieville. Crowsnest TV applications heard CALGARY (CP) Two applications for a cablevision license to serve the Crowsnest area in southwestern Alberta were heard by the Canadian Radio Television Commission Thursday. Both applicants represent British Columbia interests and companies yet to be incorporated. W. J. Gillespie, president of Kootenay Enterprises Ltd. and Fernie Television Ltd., operators of cablevision systems in Kimberley and Sparwood Natal respectively, said his group has been active on the B.C. side of the border for many years. Mr. Gillespie's company proposes to serve Blairmore, Coleman, Bellevue, Hillcrest, Frank and surrounding areas on the Alberta side of the border. The other application is from a ranching interest in Fernie, represented by Clarence Smith, a telecommunications engineer with B.C. Telephone. Mr. Smith's group proposes to serve Blairmore and Coleman, the larger of the Crowsnest communities. He said if the application is successful, his company plans to extend service to the smaller communities. Mr. Smith's company proposes four television channels CJOC-TV Lethbridge, a 'CBC affiliate, CFCN-TV Calgary, a CTV affiliate; and KXLY-TV and KSPS-TV, Spokane, Wash. Mr. Gillespie proposes 16 channels, six for television including four identical channels proposed by Mr. Smith plus KREM-TV and KHQ-TV 'Spokane, two channels for local programming, and eight radio channels CJPR Blairmore. CJAT-FM Trail. B.C., CHEC- FM Lethbridge, and KREM- FM, KDNC-FM, KHQ-FM, KXLY-FM and KCFA-FM, all of Spokane. Commission counsel Chris Johnson noted that Mr. Gillespie's application proposes much more channels but reminded him that the commission does not wish to see a Canadian licensee carry too many American channels. Gillespie said he is proposing more than required. Proposed fees are for installation and monthly for Mr Gillespie's company, and fdr installation and monthly for the other applicant.
