Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 9, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, November 9, 1974 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD MPs soften stand on U.S. magazines OTTAWA (CP) Cabinet sources who were predicting a month ago that both Time magazine and Reader's Digest would soon lose their special tax privileges in Canada now appear to be moderating their views. As the cabinet wrestles with legislation involving the U.S.- owned magazines, the sources say it is highly unlikely that the special treatment will be ended entirely for the magazines' Canadian editions. "What's more likely to says one source, "is that the magazines will be given a certain period in which to 'Canadianize' themselves." This would involve increased Canadian content and a transfer of some ownership shares to Canadian hands. When State Secretary Hugh Faulkner let it be known that the special treatment would be reviewed, there were imme- diate predictions the tax law would be changed so that both publications would cease to be regarded as Canadian adver- tising outlets for tax purposes and that the Canadian editions would be withdrawn. Regarding the two magazines as Canadian in tax law means companies may deduct the cost of advertising in them as a business expense, making them attractive to Canadian advertisers. Mr. Faulkner was strongly supported by Senator Keith Da- vey, who headed the 1970 Senate committee on the mass media, and other prominent Liberals. But there were also loud dissenting voices in the Liberal caucus. Some MPs ex- pressed fears that a Canadian weekly news magainze replac- ing Time would become a forum for extreme nationalism. Dief switches Some opposition MPs are known to have the same fears. Former prime minister John Diefenbaker, who has tradi- tionally opposed the special privileges, now is said to favor them and is ready to support both Time and Reader's Digest when the legislation comes before the House. He is said to be wary of Time being replaced by a Canadian news magazine headed by Peter Newman, now editor of Maclean's magazine. Mr. Newman wrote a critical review of Mr. Diefenbaker's prime in Power. The sources say cabinet has concentrated on Time, rather than Reader's Digest. Time has relatively few Canadian employees. Among proposals being discussed is a 75-per-cent Cana- dian ownership of Time, along with a greatly increased Canadian section, which would include 'sports' and 'people' sections about Canadians. Mr. Faulkner is reported to have suggested the magazine should have a 60-per-cent Canadian content.

He had lived six years and 47 days with the heart of a 37- year-old man transplanted by famed Texan heart surgeon Dr. Michael Debakey. Dusan was the last survivor of the 14 patients given heart transplants by Debakey, who has since stopped doing such operations. The longest-living survivor is a Indiana schoolteacher, Louis Russell, given a transplant about a month before Vlaco. Vlaco returned to Belgrade after his operation but came back to the United States last summer to study music in Los Angeles. He returned recently to Debakey's Methodist Hospital in Houston for a checkup. The hospital said it was satisfied with his condition and that his new heart appeared to have adapted well to his body. Vlaco told reporters he had felt well ever since the oper- ation. RALPH DEBONAJR. FARM SALE 4 miles east and Va mile south of TABER SATURDAY. NOV. 16-1P.M.

Alberta-B.C. boundary dispute bill draws flak OTTAWA (CP) The Com- mons gave approval in princi- ple Friday to a bill creating a British Columbia-Alberta boundary commission despite opposition complaints that the commission will not be re- quired to hold open meetings. "There is a danger that decisions made under the authority of the bill could be taken in private, hidden away and ratified by orders-m- council, without the public be- ing given any opportunity to participate inthem or find out what has been said Joe Clark (PC-Rocky His riding includes a large section of the border on the Alberta side. Representatives from Alberta, British Columbia and Ottawa would serve on the three-member commission, which would be empowered to resolve boundary disputes between the two western provinces. Subject to approval of the B.C. and Alberta cabinets, the federal cabinet could order portions of the boundary on of- ficial maps revised under the direction of the commission. Mr. Clark suggested that in addition to settling jurisdic- tional disputes arising from natural resource discoveries near the boundary, the com- mission also might have to consider requests from eastern B.C. communities to join Alberta. "It may be that some citizens desire to shift their province of residence and this legislation as it stands might cause some of those com- munities to believe that some kind of transfer is easier than it is in fact." Howard Johnston Okanagan-Kootenay) said the question of boundary change .ly topic in the southeast cor- Frank Oberle of some secessionist sem- B.C. riding, "has been a very hot and live- ner of my constituency."
