At the same time he ex- pressed support for the idea of giving Canadians greater oppor- tunity and encouragement to in- vest in the country's economy. Mr. Sharp appeared as a wit- ness before the Commons exter- nal affairs committee, which is winding up an intensive set of hearings on rela- tions. Paul Yewchuck basca) asked Mr. Sharp whether foreign ownership of Canadian industry is a threat to Canada's independence. The minister replied that it is a matter of "very great con- cern." However, there was no doubt that it brought benefits. Canada had taken action to prevent foreign domination in sectors where it would greatly reduce control by Canadians over their own country. He mentioned communications, banking and the uranium indus- try. The situation in regard to in dustry is "quite Mr Sharp continued, since it intro duces the problem of technica knowhow .which foreign invest ment brings into the country. "We would not be stronger o more independent if we fell hind he sai work methods" and maybe ge in a bit of surfing. ,Utle Criticism From Public H5 vv Overlooked For Japan's TV Viewers ,__, __ TVm crtvinf iicnfiiiv pulls, for wilh an added twist by TOKYO (AP) Sex is some- ling not overlooked by the peo- le who put on the shows and le commercials for Japan's lillions of television viewers. Although some shows, espe- ially those that combine sex vith violence, have come in for ome criticism, there is no sign hat a brake is being applied. One popular show is a series featuring a group of attractive young women and is called The Playgirls. They all manage to make like female James Bonds setting out on an impossible mission each week. Naturally, when doing in the bad guys with a judo throw or karate chop, they often manage to display an interesting bit of thigh or cleav- P.ILQ Some late night panel shows include sexual discussions, at times with bigger-than-life- sized pictures of nudes provid- ing the background scenery.

Staniield Advises Students To Assert Canada's Values OTTAWA (CP) Opposition Leader Robert Stanfield said oday that much of the radical iterature of Canadian universi- and high schools is as Cana- lian as Kentucky fried chicken. He told a group of high school students that he is disturbed hat renewed Canadian national- ism "seems to be against the values of the United States rather than an assertion of val- ues of our own." Many young Canadians con- demned American policies but often adopted the rhetoric and actics and even the causes of ;he youth protest of the United States. If Canadians spent thsir lim- ited resources in protest of other countries' policies, such as Vietnam, "we may not have enough to develop our own re- sponse to the problems directly in our realm." Mr. Stanfield said separatism both in Quebec and Westen Canada, is a growing threat to the possibility of establishing a distinctive and strong Canadian nationality. Canadian identity would come only with Canadian accomplish- ment. "We will be known by what we do, of not at he said. "Our great challenge, our fun- damental opportunity, is to es tablish a standard of commun ity in which different men can live together and live well." A growing number of Canadi ans were guided by compassioi and social conscience in select ing national goals. But "if we spend our energies in condemnation of other coun tries, we could lose the chance o build r better country cf our wn." Mirh of the Canadian youth irotest was against the war in 'ietnam, against prejudice hown blacks, against the Pen- agon. "It is as Canadian as Ken- ucky fried chicken." Mr. Stan- ield said. "It is not enough to be a Ca- nadian nationalist simply be- cause you do not want to be a citizen of the United States. "A dynamic country must be more than a refuge." Canadian nationalism could je positive and productive, BUSINESS NOTES E. K. Wilson, L. M. Johnson and Gerrit Nyhpf of Lethbride employees of Bird Constructiot Co.

Mr. StEnfield said there is en- couraging evidence that some younger Canadians r.ce. ;..t- pared to accept personal re- sponsibility to improve condi- L'.ons in the communities in which they live. But he had found among some high school students a hard line against programs to break pov- erty, into'erance and other cul- tures and indifference toward urgent social questions. The towel always slips as one lovely miss steps out of the shower after the soap advertise- ment, but extreme concentra- tion on the screen is required to get a glimpse of more than a nude shoulder. Another commercial stresses the efficiency of kerosene heat- ers, demonstrated by young la- dies who probably would not re- quire such heating if they had mere clothes on in the first place. Then there talked-about weekly show that centres al- most completely on getting a young lady out of her clothes in the old strip-tease manner. For this one, a different girl guest joins the two male come- dians and they play the paper, rock, scissors, finger game. The loser had to shed an article ot clothing. The clothing is then auctioned off to the highest bid- der in the audience of elderly, kimono-clad women, kids and somewhat embarrassed-looking men. A blouse, slip or man's un- dershirt often brings several thousand yen. By the end of the program one of the comedians normally is down to a pair of boxer shorts or mapped in a sarong, and the young woman is coyly trying to cover up in a bikini. The script usually calls for jnc more round, which the girl oses. She then pleads prettily and the show ends. A couple of weeks' ago, the girl came up with an added twist by agreeing to take off the bikini. She had another one, slightly more com- pact, underneath and modesty was more or less upheld.
