Hours will be from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. every day of the year. Glass doors for a huge re- frigerator prevented the store from opening Thursday. Mana- ger is George Mayer. Two more stores now are un- der const rucl ion in I he city. North of the grocery store is another new business, the Holi- day Barber Salon. The two- chair salon is operated by An- drew Tollin.

Studios battle for survival By I30II THOMAS HOLLYWOOD (API In i heir search for survival, Holly- wood's film studios are looking to real estate for much-needed revenue JIosl big studios were started a half-century ago, when Los Angeles land was dirt cheap. Values have greatly increased, and now the film lots represent some of the choicest parcels in the metropolitan area. Since studio facilities are not needed as much as cash, some companies arc of a mind to sell or develop their properties. The film community was shocked recently to learn of an agreement by which Columbia would sell its ll'i-aere studio and location ranch and move in with Warner Bros. The urgency of the economy was un- derscored when Columbia's an- nual report was released: A loss of million. Paramount also sought to share quarters with a rival and has been negotiating with both t'nivcrsal and 20th Century-Fox. The talks were dropped and Paramount will seek other de- vices. A year ago. the 52-acre Para- mount lot. which includes the former RKO studio, changed status. It now is a separate company, half owned by Para- mount's parent firm, Gulf and j Western, and half by an Italian real estate developer, Xocicta Generate Immobiliare. Para- mount rents space on the lot, along with other producers. MGM has sold its nearby 68- acre Lot 3. mainly outdoor loca- tions, to Levitt and Sons for million. It will become a hous- ing and shopping area. The ad- jacent Lot 2. about the same i size, is also up for sale. MGM expects to retain most of the 41-acre main lot. 20th Century-Fox was the pi- oneer in real estate develop- i ment, selling its 300 acres nine years ago for development by the Aluminum Corp. of Amer- ica. The studio retained 76 acres for its own operations on a 90- year lease. Fox now is getting j into development on its own i leased land. First project is a high-rise office building. Communications test in Arctic By STL'AItT LAKE OTTAWA (CP) Beginning nexl month, Eskimos in the Keewatin settlement of Ran- kin Inlet will be able to pick up tiieir telephones, dial 0 and broadcast a radio mes- sage to the entire settlement. The experiment, in Arctic communications, the idea of Bell Canada researcher E. P. i Paddy I Gardiner of Ottawa, has the backing of Ihe North- west Territories government, the communications depart- ment and the CBC. Mr. (iardiner, in an inter- view Wednesday, said be has no idea of how Ihe Kskimos will use the facility. "It could be a great he admits. LICENCE XKicnr.n Because Ihe experiment uses a radio frequency, a lic- ence i.s needed from the Cana- dian Radio-Television Com- mission. This is e.xpectod to hr issued when I ho nicrl.s in RcgiiKi (Id. III. Persons who want In keep their telephone conversations private will be able to do so as before. But those who want to lake part in a community conver- sation merely dial 0 and they arc on the air. Anybody who wants to hear the conversa- lions merely tunes in as they would a radio station. Four persons can dial into the system at one time, leav- ing six other lines open for regular telephone traffic. In a departure from usual programs introduced by gov- ernments, the system will be placed under the control of the predominantly Eskimo community council. It will be up to council lo crack down if there are abus- hogging the radio time or using it for purely sel- fish reasons. Mr. Gardiner has hopes that bis system can be used in other remote areas nf Canada north and south. But "results are totally un- he says, and it could be a year before the score is in.

Even this fall, at the opening j of the General Assembly, the i United Slates was talking along j the lines of the settlement of the world's major problems by the Soviet Union and the United States. The Americans were talking realistically to a degree. In such areas as disarmament, the two powers got together to reach an agreement and the rest of the world "'as invited to accept this agreement. But on lesser issues, erosion has been evident for years. The talk was nol East-West. There also North-South the developed opposed to the i Tile super powers could not al- ways count on their allies on all matters. Blocs had started the process of disintegration. TALK OF BLOCS There still is talk here of the Afro-Asian bloc, the Americans, the Western Western Europe, Canada, the United States, Australia New Zealand and the bloc. But these descriptions have lost much of their meaning. The Afro-Asians are Epart, even over such an emo- tional issue as apartheid South Africa. Some are talking dialogue with South Africa. To others this remains anathema. In the India-Pakistan dispute there is the strange combina- tion of China and the United States regarded as supporters of Pakistan and the Soviet Union supporting India. In Latin America, some conn- are becoming more leftist .Market heads in the nationalistic and becoming 10 countries, can- away from what be expected to support the "western" Stales on all issues.
