Grain mice review TORONTO (CP) - "People say he's just a hockey player, and what's he think he's doing becoming a cabinet minister?" Sylvanus Apps, a brilliant centre three decades ago with Toronto Maple Leafs of the National Hockey League, made the remark with a twinkle in his eyes as he moved into his new job as Ontario's minister of correctional services. "Well, I'm a hockey player and I'm not ashamed of it. And for people who say 'What did he get that job for?' I say wait a little while, and let's see what happens." Most people who recall the great Syl Apps as the man who led the Leafs to three Stanley Cups do not know that he is also an honors graduate of political economics from McMaster University in Hamilton and a successful Kingston businessman. Now 56 and only five pounds over his hockey playing weight of 183, Mr. Apps said in an interview he has a lot to learn about his new responsibilities "but I feel I'm capable of doing it, and I'm out to prove that I can." A quietly efficient government backbencher until his cabinet Drug-oriented music under fire JL Winnipeg Grain WINNIPEG (CP) - All commodities were on an easier price pattern on a moderate volume of trade at mid-session on the Winnipeg Grain Exchange today.

WASHINGTON (AP) - The United States Federal Communications Commission, reacting to complaints about drug-oriented music, says radio and television executives must be familiar with records their disc jockeys play. Otherwise, the commission held in a split decision, a station's licence might be in jeopardy. "Whether a particular record depicts the dangers of drug abuse or, to the contrary, promotes such illegal drug usage, is a question for the judgment of the licensee," the FCC ruled in a decision announced here. "The thrust of this notice is simply that the licensee must make that judgment and cannot properly follow a policy of playing such records without ... a management-level executive at the station knowing the content of the lyrics. . . . "Such a pattern of operation . .. raises serious questions as to whether continued operation of the station is in the public interest," the commission said. Operation in the public interest is a prerequisite for retaining a licence. Five FCC commissioners, including Chairman Dean Burch, signed the notice which went to all broadcast stations. Commissioner Robert T. Bartiey abstained; Commissioner Nicholas Johnson dissented. HOPES FOR RESPONSE "I hope the recording and broadcasting industries will have the courage and commitment to respond to this brazen attack upon them with all the enthusiasm it calls for," Johnson said. "Given the power of this commission, I am afraid they may not." The order may provide broadcast executives a new experience in boning up on the jargon favored by many of today's recording artists. "Don't Bogart that joint, my friend," a line from the soundtrack of Easy Rider, is an example. Bogart refers to the late actor Humphrey Bogart, a heavy smoker of cigarettes. While the cigarette was lit it seldom left his mouth. Dollar value MONTREAL (CP) -U.S. dollar in terms of Canadian funds down % to $1.00 5-16. Pound sterling down % to $2.42%.

JEAN-NOEL HOULE Public Service of Canada Please quote competition number 71-3045 on all correspondence. "Joint" means a marijuana cigarette-and a marijuana smoker prefers that his companion not tarry too long over the precious weed they're sharing. "I get high with a little help from my friends" is from a hit by the Beatles. "It's a catchy tune," said Vice*resident Spiro T. Agnew last Sept. 14 in Las Vegas, "but until it was pointed out to me, I never realized that the friends were assorted drugs." appointment, Mr. Apps was first elected to the legislature as the member for Kingston and The Islands in 1963 by 1,000 votes, then re-elected in 1967 by 2,300 votes. "I must have done an acceptable job to get re-elected with a larger majority." He was also an outstanding pole-vaulter in his younger days, British Empire Games champion in 1934, and twice Canadian title-holder. However, his most visible achievement as a backbencher came as chairman of a select legislature committee on youth. The committee produced a well-received report in 1987 of 276 recommendations, including a plea for a ministry of youth and lowering of the voting age to 18. LAW EXPECTED A bill to lower the voting age is expected to be introduced ait the new session of the legislature opening March 30. Mr. Apps and his wife Molly have three daughters, two sons and five grandchildren. One son is a particular source of pride -Syl Jr., who plays for Pitts burgh Penguins of the NHL's western division. He describes himself as a political moderate, more at home with the average man than with the intellectual. "I think I'm a pretty good Conservative politician. I don't see bow you can bring up five children and be a dedicated right-winger."
