The definition of safety car- tridges in Section 2 of the Ex- plosives Act will repealed under the proposed legislation and this will mean placing control of such cartridges under regulations. Unless the regulations are, made ''very Mr. ScammcU says hunters will be required to have a permit to purchase shotgun shells or .22-calibre ammunition, a per- mit to transport them home, a permit to transport them when going hunting and a lic- ence for the vehicle used to transport them. And storage of the ammunition would have to be in a licensed magazine. Mr. Scammell said the asso- ciation believes the govern- ment is acting in good faith in trying to deal with (lie prob- lems associated with the use of explosives in recent bomb- ings in Quebec and the cur- rent situation in Northern Ire- land. ''But invariably, sportsmen find they- wind up being the only people inconvenienced nnd the revolutionaries and the criminal clement aren't inconvenienced in the slight- est because they don't obey the law." ile said the hunting fratern- ity is concerned it will have to go through the same time-con- suming and costly lobbying exercise it experienced two years ago before it succeeded in having sporting firearms j exempted from legislation re- I quiring registration of guns. "The legislators saw the light on the argument s presented by responsible citi- zens and hunters on those amendments to the Criminal Code on firearms registration and now they should see the light on the ammunition used in sporting arms." The registration require- ments were amended to ex- empt sporting guns and Par- liament should recognize the same principle is involved and provide an amendment on ammunition, Mr. Scammell said. He emphasized that the ex- emption on sporting arms under the Criminal Code could lie removed "at any time, but it would require debate in the Commons to do it." Under the proposed Bill C7, not Parliament hut "certain minor functionaries around the country" would be left to decide 'vhether ammunition for rifles and shotguns was to he restricted, particularly in regard to licences. This would involve a great amount of red tape. ''We're no', accusing the government of trying to have another go at us, but. we are saying 'let's be consistent.' "They recognized the jus- tice of our argument on the firearms; now, Set's recognize it again and put the exemp- tion back into the Explosives Act.11 CRASHES KIM, 17 KRANEBERG (AP> Two head-on automobile collisions on West German highway s cost 17 lives Monday, police reported.

(CP Wirephoto) Publisher savs il will survive agazine fights competition TORONTO (CP) Can a magazine which promotes the concept that Canada must own its own soul capture a big enough audience to survive financially against competi- tion from larger periodicals originating in the United Stales? William Nobleman, pub- lisher of Saturday Night, thinks it can. His magazine has had its ups and down during the last half-dozen years and "has fluctuated in its advertising from poor to But for the early months of this year advertising sales have gone up to Last August, the Canada Council granted the magazine with which to cover artistic, cultural and literary activities in Canada. With a circulation of 90.000 to Mr. Nobleman says he feels his publications had achieved some stablity and acceptance. The magazine has also achieved a definite focus. Edi- tor Robert Fulford's vision for Saturday Night goes this way: "What I want it to be is a forum for the best writers and thinkers of Canada on issues of Canadian public affairs and culture. "I took over as editor in the summer of 1968. There had been too heavy a concentra- tion on world affairs, as op- posed to Canadian. "Since then, our interest in European or American affairs has diminished, and Saturday. Night is about Canadian af- fairs." Mr. Fulfo'-d says: "Let peo- ple go somewhere else to find out what the Italians are doing. "We're a thin monthly, 12 issues a year. We have to have a focus, come down on something." He has "come down'1 on emphasizing that Canada's identity must survive and flourish. To put this across to its audience, the magazine looks for top-notch writers. "What we look for in manu- scripts is .serious literary journalism, well-written things on current affairs. "There are two kinds of writers who write for Satur- day Night. Some have profes- sional Purdy the poet for instance. We put them into contact with their consJtucnt-s, You loll th people, 'You have something to say; here are a group of people who want to hear you.' "Secondly, our writers may be people who have never been heard of. They find a voice in Saturday Night. On on average, in every issue, there is a writer who has I never been published at all. This is a very important role for Saturday Night. But Air.

Do Canadians pre- fer to support completely Ca- nadian periodicals like Satur- day Night and Maclean's magazine? It is not clear they do.

Saturday Night's circulation went from in 1970 to to today. "De- pending on the money spent on promotion, we expect a cir- culation of to by the end of says pub- lisher Nobleman. Will Saturday Night sur- vive? "That's a stupid says Mr. Nobleman. "We are the leading edge of Canadian consciousness. "We'll survive." Approval is granted for trip FOREMOST (Special) General approval was given recently by the School Com- mittee to Grade 4 and 5 stu- dents in the County of Forty Mile to visit Calgary as part of a program sponsored by the Glenhow Foundation. Several schools in the County are expected to avail I h e m- selves of the opportunity dur- ing the latter half of May and the first part of June.
