He said the dramatic series, which ivas first shotvn on NBC Sept. 12, 1959, will be shown for the last time on Jan. 23 next year. Both Bonanza and The Bold Ones, a medical series now in its fourth season, are being re- placed on the Tuesday night schedule with recent theatrical and marie-for-television movies, the NBC spokesman said. Low-ratings caused the can cellalion of both shows. Bo- nanza had been one of NBC's highest-rated shows until this season, when it was pitted against CBS's Maude and lost the ratings fight.

Presses idle iii Vancouver VANCOUVER (CP) The Province newspaper failed to publish again today as negotia- tions continued in the Pacific Press contract dispute. The newspaper had been pre- pared for the presses in the hopes of a breakthrough in the dispute. Neither of Vancouver's daily newspapers has published since Saturday.

Representative LETHBRIDGE liy GKEG McINTYHF. llerahl Legislative Iliirenii EDMONTON Southwestern Alberta's Social Credit JlLAs were four lo two against the recommendation of a legisla- tive committee Monday to abol- ish film censorship. A nine member committee appointed in Ap-il recommend- ed that a four-class rating re- place the current policy to cut or entirely ban movies in the province. The three-man Alberta censor board would be replaced by a five member classification board, i[ Ihe committee report is accepted by the government. Horst Schmid, minister of culture, youth and recreation, said in an interview that the re- port will likely be considered by the Conservative caucus on Thursday. A bill to amend the Alberta amusements act may be pre- pared for consideration by th legislature either this fall or in the spring. The four movie classifica liens would be- General, all ages.

"ication board, if the report is accepted. The report would bring Alber i into line with most other provinces where only film classification is used. BOW TO PRESSURE Doug Miller (SC a former president o he Albcrln Motion Picture Theatres Association and a member of the censorship com- nillce. said in an interview thai the committee bowed to prcs sure from Ihe movie industry which wants lo "sell sensation- alism." He said some control over film censorship should be re- tained because the nrov government through Us depart- ments of culture, youth and rec- reation and department of (lie environment has a responsibil- itv to maintain the "quality of Life." John Anderson (TjCthl Essl) and Charlie Drain (Pin- cher Crcek-C'rowsr.est) were the only Socred MLAs in soil'h- v.esl Alberla lo support the committee recommendation to abolish censorship. Mr. Anderson said "it's pret- ty hard to dictate what people are going to see and hear." CREATE STIR Mr. Drain said, the draw- back to censorship is that it is rarely applied evenly, so rather than stop undesirable entertain- ment, it often creates more In- terest. "Banning something can cre- ate a great stir like the Cath- olic League of Decency did when it banned books in Bos- ton." He said the new 'X1 rat- iiif!

The strikers entered the building about a.m., a hydro spokesman said, and in j about 15 minutes had spread as far as lire 19th floor of Ihe 22- sloroy building. He said it appeared as though "several hundred" persons were involved in the attempt to persuade non-union workers to walk out. "There wns a lot of pushing." Police said Ihcrc were no nr- j rests or injuries nnd the situ- ation was returned lo normal within an hour.

Dick Gnienwald (Lclhbridge Wesl) said "although there was no olher way for the commit- tee lo go, I wouldn't want to have raised my seven kids un- der this new set up." Ted Hinman (Cardston) ob- jected lo liberalizing standards and predicted an increase in ob- scene movies will follow the change in law. "This isn't what I'd he snid, "But it fits in with the times." Standards of decency have been left to the Canada nal Code which has been the arbiter of books and night club entertainment in Alberta up to now. Mosl MLAs felt the "bare minimum" standards under the criminal code were not suffi-1 cient for movies. The reoort tabled in the leg islature Monday said "as th federal government has passec legislation in the criminal cod covering obscene material IhL-re is very litlle legislation t h a t a provincial governmen can validly pass in the sam a-ea." ADVISORY ROLE The onus Is on the producers distributors and exhibitors tc comply with the law, it said. The committee, headed hy Ernie Jamison (PC St. Al Irert) suggested that Alberta': advisory board on objeclionabli publications, which has only an advisory role, be disbanded.

In re- porting him far behind Presi- dent but if history is accurate gauge, they are not wrong enough for his political purposes. Even hi 1D4S, their worst year since representative voter sam- pling began, the margin of er- ror of three major national sur- veys was not as great as the lead the polls now give Nixon. McGovcrn has compared ihe current surveys to those of fat great 1940 upset, in which President Harry Truman con- founded the pollsters by defeat- Ing Republican Thomas Duwey. "We may see a thorough dis- crediling of Hie public-opinion soils in Ibis campaign just as tfarry Truman discredited .hem in 19-10.'' McGovern said.

A telephone caller claimc-' re- sponsibility on behalf of a 'rot- cstnnt from the North. The caller, who warned of the blast, said the bomb had been planted by Hie Ulster Volunteer Force, an organization banned in Northern Ireland. The lown hall was extensively damaged. And in the lown of Lifford, jusl across the border from the Northern Ireland town of Stra- bane, Irish police fought wilh more lhan 100 demonstrators during the night following the seizure of arms and explosives there.
