Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 3, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Radio station plan opposed EDMONTON (CP) A Uni- versity of Alberta senate com- mittee on the future of Radio Station CKUA says its final re- port, to be released within a week, expresses continued op- position to government plans for the station. Legislation proposed by the government would place the station, operated by the prov- ince through Alberta Govern- ment Telephones and under a licence granted to the univer- sity, under the authority of an Alberta Educational Communi- cations Corporation which would also cover educational television stations in Edmonton and Calgary. The committee told Advanced Education Minister Jim Foster at a meeting April 9 that plac- ing the radio station in the same corporation with educa- tional television opera tions would unreasonably orient the station towards formal educa- tional programming. The committee proposed a corporation for the ra- dio station which would be re- sponsible to the same "unv brella" corporation as the edu- cational television outlets. Mr. Foster suggested that the committee's fears would be al- layed -when detailed legislation was presented to the house, but the committee, in a prepared release yesterday, said that it still opposes the plan.

Six armed men broke into the theatre while three of them held 25 technicians and stage hands at gunpoint the others hurled an estimated 15 in- cendiary bombs into the stalls, police said.

The ceremony, running a fashionable 40 minutes late, saw Calgary millionaire Sam Hashman's million Royal Centre development declared open for business by Hungar- ian Hollywood performer Zsa Zsa Gabor, whose five divorce settlements have helped make her a millionaire too. In fact, the only losers in the affair were the swarming doz- ens who didn't get more than a glimpse of Zsa Zsa's middle- aged glamor after waiting nearly an hour for her to show up and stage a mock fight with a television newsmen. Miss Gabor declared that the Watergate affair in the United States has been blown up out of a lot of silly mistakes but should cool down soon "because it really isn't that important." She said also that a person's age isn't important and money isn't important. Miss Gabor denied a report that she was getting paid 000 for her part in the opening ceremony. She said she was do- ing it for nothing, as a favor to a friend. DATE MEASURE The capacity of the Arab dhow, a small ship, is measured by the number of 180-pound date E HOTEL 5th St. and 2nd Ave. S.

Opening a two-day hearing into the stalled Alyeska oil pipe- line across Alaska, the Wash- ington state Democrat sug- gesied that before any consider- ation is given to building a pipe- line through Canadian territory, a formal U.S. treaty should be enacted. Jackson said he is fundamen- tally in favor of two pipelines across Alaska arid one going south through Canada to the U.S. Midwest. However, he felt it is vital for the Alaska route to be used first because that line can be com- pleted faster. "It would be the height of im- pudence to build a pipeline across Canada without a treaty." he said. "The Canadians could do a job on the U.S. consumers if they wished, raising prices and taxes. AVith a treaty we could work out a consolidated method with Canada for moving the oil. "Politics in Canada are ex- tremely pre- anier of British Columbia wants to bring the pipeline down through the Peace River coun- try. My suggestion is to get the oil from Alaska by the Alaskan route, meanwhile negotiating with Canada for a second route." Jackson claimed that there are "terrible problems" be- tween Ottawa and the prov- ing. "The Trudeau government stands or falls on what the New Democratic party does. "As you know, the premier of LABELLED QUAGMIRE' B.C. is a member of that party and he wants the route down through B.C. half-way by rail, to Washington area. "Canada right now is a politi- es! quagmire."

Company president Bruce Pepper said construction is being postponed indefinitely in the face of provincial govern- ment opposiiion. Mr. Pepper said he remains hopeful that tiie 80-mile rail link with the United Stales will bs built some time in Ihe future, after either a change of govern- ment or a change of heart by the present New Democratic party government. "Wte haven't changed our at- titude as far as building the railway is he said. Crews began clearing the right-of-way for the line last week in order to meet a May 1 deadline ir. the railway's char- ter for a start on construction, BLOCKS RAILWAY But Premier Dave Barrett ef- fectively blocked the railway by refusing a request for a right- of-way through the provincially- owned Elk Forest area to the U.S. border near Eureka, Mont. Mr. Pepper said some clear- ing and grading has been done at the company's potential coal plant site at Line Creek, at the northern end of the proposed line, where work was halted Tuesday, and about two-thirds of a mile has teen cleared and partly graded at Elko, where it meets the provincial land. The object of the proposed rail Itefr with the Burlington Northern Railroad in the U.S. is to provide an alternate route to the present Carjadian Pacific Railway line for shipping Crows Nest coal to the deep sea bulk loading port at Roberts Bank, some 10 miles south of Van- couver. The NDP government's oppos- ition to the new line, which was supported by the previous Social Credit government, is based on the contention that it would take coal-carrying busi- ness away from CP Rail with a consequent loss of jobs in B.C. "This line would not cause the loss of one single Mr. Pepper said, adding that additional jobs would be cre- ated if the K and E were allow- ed to proceed. Angry aldermen smashes mike DARTMOUTH, N.S.
