By JEFF CARRUTHERS Herald Ottawa Bureau OTTAWA An experimen- tal communications satellite being built by Canada will br- ing a new twist to cor- respondence courses and education television for students at Carleton Univer- sity here and Stanford Univer- sity in California the Commu- nications Technology Satellite. CTS. will be used to relay televised courses offered at Stanford University to students at Carleton University and vice-versa. And the televised courses, mostly advanced engineering courses will be interactive, that is two-way, so that the students can ask questions and the professor can answer. With luck, students at each of the universities will even be able to get course credits for the courses normally only of- fered at the other campus. Making it all possible will be the advanced CTS satellite, a joint venture of Canada and the U S The satellite is now scheduled to be launched in late 1975 The actual satellite college courses would be offered dur- ing the 1976-77 academic year. There would be two hours of courses per day, five days a week during two terms. One hour of the satellite in- struction will be devoted to cxpeiimenting with various tvpes of two-way television programming, to see which ones are best for such an electronic college with a cam- pus stretching miles across the continent The CTS will relay two-way television signals between small, eight-foot dish anten- nas at each university The 11 S.

At Carleton University, the satellite education experi- ment is being arranged by the government supported City'' com- munications facility. Run by the engineering faculty, the experimental facility has been testing a number of different techniques of using television and two-way or more complex systems for communications and education The satellite university ex- periment will only be one of a number of communications experiments being planned for the CTS satellite For example, there will be several experimental link-ups between remote northern communities and southern cities, to bring medical advice live into the north. Meanwhile, the CTS program, being managed by Ottawa, is running into more problems and facing the possibility of further in- creases in budget. Negotiations on the final stage of the construction con- tract for the satellite have been stalled for months between officials of the com- munications department and the prime contractor. RCA Ltd. ol Montreal Government ofhcials are now considering stopping all flow of money to RCA if a con- tract isn't settled by the end of the year RCA reportedly is asking for more money than is in the almost 1552-million budget There continue to be minor technical problems, including the possibility that the satellite design mav be overweight and therefore have to be modified and the lad that there are problems with dissipating heat from some of the satellite equipment BANISHED FOR BIKE BERKHAMSTED, England (CP) Pensioner Reg Jellis, 75. and his 47-year-old son Laurie were turned out of their Hertfordshire cottage home and now live in a tiny garden all because Laurie failed to keep up instal- ment payments on his motor- bike The credit company took over the C8.000 cot- tage, security lor the loan, and changed all the locks It plans to sell the cottage and repay Reg the balance after the loan is recovered PACIFIC wash people FREE EXTERIOR WASH with gasoline purchcise of 5 gallons or more (Exicnor wash Si 75 with gasoline purchase ol less than 5 gallons) Complete interior and exterior wash I 2'j wijh purchase of 15 gallons or more 75 wilh 10-15 ciallor purchase wish 5 10 purchase i wilh no o purchase SUPERSONIC CAR WASH 1819- 3 Ave S We honor all credit cards approved by dealer before purchase including CHARGEX.
