Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 13, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 6 LETHBRIDGE HERALD Saturday, Octobtr 13, 1973 Local blackouts bother Mather By IAIN HUNTER Herald Ottawa Bureau OTTAWA Surrey-White Rock MP Barry Mather wants Parliament to urge the Cana- dian Radio and Television Commission to stop local TV blackouts of professional foot- ball and hockey games when more than 70 per cent of stadium or arena seats have been sold.

The network of machines will be similar to a plan im- plemented by the Alberta government the Alberta Communications Network to provide news releases and government announcements to radio stations and new- spapers in the province.

The lifting of the local TV blackout would apply to games between teams of the Canadian Football League, National Hockey League and World Hockey Association when 70 per cent or more of the seats at games have been sold. A ruling by the broadcasting regulatory agency in the U.S. lifting the local blackout when football games have been sold out has caused protests from clubs and stadium operators. They have claimed lost profits from parking and other ser- vices due to the number of people who buy tickets but choose to stay home and watch the game on TV when the local blackout is lifted. Power abuse charge hurled EDMONTON (CP) The move by the Alberta govern- ment to arbitrarily reclassify some employees to a lower pay scale is repugnant and an abuse of power. Bill Broad, president of the Civil Service Association of Alberta, said today. Mr. Broad told a news conference the province was guilty of an "improper use of ministerial power" in its reclassification of trades- men maintenance tradesmen. "We're going to fight this as far as we can and we're already looking at the next step it might be through the courts." he said.

NOV. 17 9 fan-tints Qtyt, Eicoitid ham OTTAWA (CP) Some Carleton University students of the class of 1976 may sit in on television courses tran- smitted live by satellite from Stanford University in California. Similarly. Stanford students, on their campus near San Francisco, will be able to engage in a give-and- take with Carleton professors by means of two-way audio and visual signals. The educational exchange will be made possible when Canada and the United States launch a com- munications technology satellite in 1975. Stuart Patterson, director of the government-supported communications facility which is preparing the experi- ment at Carleton. said the universities would be allotted a few hours a day on one of the satellite's channels. The televised courses will be two-way so students will be able to respond with questions and get an answer back from the professor miles away. It is proposed that students taking the satellite course from the other univer- sity will receive course credits from their own. Initially, the universities plan to exchange advanced engineering courses. But Carleton also plans to tran- smit courses with Canadian content. Mr. Patterson said. Mr. Patterson said the main purpose of the experimental facility is to devise methods of transmitting educational pro- grams to remote areas in northern Canada. The centre, supported by the com- munications department, has spent since it was set up in 1971.

The association, angered by what it called unfair pre- selection of films for the awards, announced Monday that they would boycott the awards presentations. In reaction, the awards or- ganizers said they would cancel the awards presen- tation. TV sex tops violence RAINOR, Pa. (AP) Sex on television programs is less offensive to Americans than violence, says a poll con- ducted for TV Guide magazine. In its Oct. 13 issue, the magazine says the viewers polled felt violence is more objectionable, by 35 to 27 per cent. "But a full one-third of the people think one is just as bad as the other." the magazine says. "Women object to scenes of sex in far greater numbers than men to 23 per cent." Nearly 40 per cent of the viewers believe television is more open and frank than it should be, and 41 per cent think too much time is devoted to programs dealing with sexual topics. Results of the June 12 poll of 495 men and 526 women, all over 18 and living in private homes, also show: two-thirds of American viewers feel there is too much violence on television. than half favor a re- view board to screen televi- sion shows to keep programs of "questionable taste" off the air. During the week the conflict grew to include the newly- formed Quebec Critics' Association who sided with the directors and the Quebec producers' and distributors' associations which both sided, with the awards organizers. Marcia Couelle, principal organizer lor the awards, an- nounced a compromise. The awards will take place, she said, at a news conference. The international jury will announce its .selections for the winners in the various cate- gories. There will, however, be no presentation of Etrogs (the Oscar-like statuette named for its designer Sorel Etrog) during the news conference. She said no decision has been made yet on how winners would receive their awards. Plans for TV coverage of the evening have been cancelled. Miss Couelle said. The directors. 14 of whom had work entered for the awards, had criticized the CFA for "plagiarizing" the Academy Awards and for a preselection process that "give a mutilated picture ot our (Quebecois) production." All the 212 entries in the awards, including 32 feature- length films, were screened here this week. Among the features are Kamouraska, Paperback Hero and The Pyx. crown isn't for Bob Baker DETROIT (AP) Wayne State University student Bob Baker is threatening to go to court because he was dis- qualified from competing for the school's homecoming queen crown. Its a clear case of sex dis- cimination, he says. Baker, the student-faculty council candidate, was dis- qualified by the university's homecoming committee. He ran as a "favorite son" in an campaign" for his spot on the court. RADIO and TV LISTINGS Programs are listed by the Radio and Television Stations.
