to such a pitch particu larly among that it was becoming obvious that the Vorster Government would have to do something about Recently it did it it gave the censorship screws an ex cruciating and astonishing It introduced hi Parliament the Publications and Enter tainments Amendment Bill when it becomes will empower the Publications Control Board the 12member censor board to appoint super

immigrants and ex tends from six months to three years the period in which ille gal entrants can be booted The opposition view was best expressed by Deputy Leader Roy Jenkins who said This unnecessary bill picks away with a sort of horrible preci sion at the delicate and thinly growing skin of good commun ity relations in The basic objection of the critics is that it is pernicious to apply the

By William in The Christian Science Monitor you like a television set with 40 or evening In the first place I dont working channels The mind bog gles But as Editorial Research Report says these are on the way via Cable Youd pay for what you But a dozen channels would offer entertainment pro Others would regularly show meet ings of city council and school board ap plause within the high school sports aside from lectures from a nearby courses in automobile repair got a TV in your garage and language One channel would show nothing but stock quotations with sooth ing music no doubt during Another would display continuous weather But this isnt The report also sug gests that the same cable would be used to send and receive telegrams and pay electric order groceries and do ones Okay for the banking one day were all likely to have bank accounts geared to a master credit card and any purchase we make will immediately and automatically be deducted from our credit And okay for paying the electric bill which will be a lot higher with all this But theres another item where some body sensible has got to draw the The TV we are by turning to a newspaper scans the latest headlines and presses a button to order a printout of stories he wants to I am fed up with media stories about how we are each of a few million per going to have facsimile machines in our homes winch will run off the morning want tins gsdgct clacking and humming away like the background noise in the local In the second I dont want to have to keep a supply of news print rolls in the basement I have enough trouble keeping a supply of paper kitchen And in the third how do I know which news stories I want to read until Ive seen which you can do very simply by scanning the pages in the daily I want to see all the news dis and I dont want to have to be on hand before the TV set at precisely or miss the headline In other theres a lot of enjoyment and1 much less fuss and sitting down with the evening newspaper which the newsboy or mailman has just Ill get my headlines via radio or But it is just possible that the homeprinting of millions of daily via costly facsimile or mechanical is one of those expensive clutters that civilization can do Cable TV is And so will be these wonderful things now called by the jawbreaker name of audiovisual playback devices wluch means the apparatus by which you can play in the over your TV television programs that you like stereo in some stores or rent fron So that you can see and via your own The Sound of Music Romeo and the Godkin or a documentary on drug
