Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 24, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Pay TV controls hinted TORONTO (CP) Gsrard Pelietier, federal minister of communications, served warn- ing Wednesday of possible moves to regulate pay tele- vision and unlicensed master- antenna television systems, such as are installed on large apartment buildings. He told the 16th annual con- vention of the Canadian Cable Television Association (CCTA) that the introduction of pay television systems in large ho- far mostly in Toronto and become a prelude to its introduction into apartment buildings and even private homes." "If uncontrolled, this could become a vehicle for the vast importation of non-Canadian material without even the sligh- test regard for its impact upon Canadian production and the national broadcasting policy." He said that if pay TV was to be developed, it should be done in such a way as to support the Canadian broadcasting policy. "I think that this is a pre- occupation that should bs shared by all good corporate the legal ni- ceties may he said. "I think we have every right to expect some concern for the Canadian broadcasting objec- tives on the part of the very large corporations that own and operate hotels in this country, wfosther those operations are owned by Canadian or foreign interests, and whether they are privately or publicly owned, should say particularly, if they are publicly owned." The minister said regulatory problems are also posed by the existence of very large master antenna television systems INDUSTRY CONCERNED Acknowledging the concern of the cable television industry over the competition posed by these unlicensed systems, Mr. Pelietier said "wa cannot ig- nore" the inconsistancies in- volved in regulating cable tele- vision without exerting any con- trol over MATV. He said: "In areas like Toronto, un- regulated MATV can undermine the integrity of the national CORNER 2nd AVE. and 13th ST. N.

Mr. Pelietier said direct regu lalion of MATV poses problems of administration and enforce ment because of the large num- ber and variety of systems. In Toronto abne, he said, it is esti mated that there may wall be MATV systems. He said an effective solution sity of direct intervention by and one that avoids the neces the Canadian Radio-Television Commission (CRTC) is to en- courage apartment owners to abandon their MATV service and hook up with licensed cable operators. In cities such as Vancouver where apartment buildings are served by the licensed cable systems, he said, the level of consumer satisfaction "has besn eminently higher than in Toronto where this is not the case." He said: "We are seriously examining the development of MATV licensing criteria. Later at a news conference the minister indicated that any regulatory moves would come from the CRTC. Hearing aid lest planned TORONTO (CP) A Swedish doctor said yesterday an elec- tromagnetic hearing aid used successfully on monkeys may be tried on people about six months from new. Dr. Christer Liedgren, a vis- iting fellow from Lmkoping, Sweden, at University of To- ronto, told a group of neurolo- gical surgeons that the gadget's design needs to be modified and more experiments done with the kind of metal to be used. Dr. Liedgren said the hearing aid consists of a magnet placed in the middle ear and covered with a coil. The leads from the coil are attached to a plug con- fining a microphone, an ampli- fier and a battery. Tre plug is embedded in the mastoid bone behind the ear and is not covered by skin. "That's because it will be a once-only Dr. Lied- said in an interview. The g must be easy to reach so ihat the battery can be changed. REDUCES DISTORTION He said the unit reduces the distortion that some people hear n conventional hearing aids, in- creases the frequency range of sound and eliminates the ring- ing feedback which is so loud for some patients that bystand- ers can hear it. He said the disadvantage is that its use involves an oper- a.ton cf implanting a foreign object in the body. Dr. Liedgreu said the gadget would not be for everyone who is hard of hearing. Many people can get along with the best of the traditional hearing aids but others cannot. He sa'd most of these people have inherited a hearing loss. Others have been exposed to too much noise over too long a pe- riod, and others have suffered loss of hearing through drugs.

Parkside Thursday, May 24, 1973 THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD 7 Orchestra w ins encores MOSCOW (CP) More than 35 minutes after the National Arts Centre Orchestra of Can- ada concluded its formal pro- gram in Moscow's top concert hall, Mario Bernardi and his musicians were still playing encores and receiving rounds of applause. Warned that Moscow music audiences are reticent, orches- tra members were obviously caught by surprise by the re- ception. The debut Moscow concert was in the Great Hall of the Moscow Conservatory, also known as Tchaikovsky Hall be- cause it was there that the ro- mantic master of Russian mu- sic did much of his work. Or- chestras from abroad are rarely invited to perform there. The audience included Deputy Culture Minister Vasily Koukharsky and Mme. Sergei Prokoviev, whose late hus- band's work, The Classical Symphony, the orchestra in- cluded on its program. Bernardi gave her a special bow of appreciation, and she joined in the rhythmic ap- plause, staying through four en- cores. After five earlier concerts in Russia, and two in Warsaw, the orchestra leaves today for Eng- land where it will open the Bath Festival in Bath Abbey, another distinguished invitation on its European concert tour.
