Ltd. in Canadian hands, the Canadian Radio-Television Commission was told Tuesday. W. Z.

ANGLO DISTRIBUTORS GRAND OPENING Thursday - 9:30 a.m. FREE GIFT - PRIZES new company, Famous Players Ltd. The commission is conducting what CRTC vice-chairman Harry Boyle termed "an inquiry and not an investigation" into the corporate changes. It is hying to determine the impact of the reorganization on broadcasting companies in which Famous held shares. Mr. Estey made clear the corporate changes were made necessary because of a government requirement that foreign ownership of a Canadian broadcasting outlet should be no more than 20 per cent. An American company, Gulf and Western Industries Inc. of New York, held 51.15 per cent of the shares in Famous Players Canadian before (he changes. TRIED TO SELL Mr. Estey said Famous Players Canadian has tried to sell its holdings in cable television and broadcasting companies since the Canadian ownership requirements were introduced two years ago.

Public StomachNo. 1 dies LONDON (CP) - Raymond Postgate, the man who raised the standard of some British cooking from an international joke to a level worthy of inclusion in his own Good Food Guide, has died at the age of 74. Gourmet, classical scholar, novelist and historian of British socialism-he married the daughter of Labor party pioneer George Lahsbury-the iovial, white-haired Postgate, who died here, was known affectionately among his followers as "Public Stomach Nb. 1." When he founded the food guide in 1949, British restaurant food was alt its lowest water-m�d-k after years of wartime rationing and substitute ingredients. Readers of the guide automatically became members of Post-gate's Good Food Club and were encouraged to send in reports on promising restaurant!:. The guide, which first came out in 1951, has just celebrated its 20th anniversary under the editorship of Chrisopher Driver, another gourmet and classical scholar to whom Postgate handed the reins in 19S9. In this year's edition, even sharper standards have slashed the number of recommended restaurants in Britain to 1,165 from 1,634 in the 1969-1970 edition. The chief sufferers are Scotland, whose good eating places have fallen to 119 from 185, and Northern Ireland, which now rates only seven from its former 13 Student stress to be probed EDMONTON (CP) - The general faculties council at the University of Alberta has decided to form a committee to study stress associated with university studies.
