Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 15, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta f- t 26 THE LETHBRIDQC HERALD Tuesday, October 15, 1974 U.K. Parliament members diverse LONDON (AP) Britain's new Parliament includes members as diverse as Win- ston Churchill, grandson of the famed prime minister, and Rev. Ian Paisley, a mili- tant Protestant from Northern Ireland. Among those joining them in Westminster is Enoch Pow- ell, the maverick Con- servative who gave up his safe seat at Wolverhampton in England last February in a disagreement over his party's policies. Powell won the Northern Ireland district of South Down, as a United Ulster Un- ionist, pledging to maintain Ulster's links with Britain. Another well-known political figure to return to Parliament is Margaret How's Ito Hearing? free offer of special interest to those who hear but do not understand words has been announced by Beltone.

Thatcher, 49, considered a dark-horse contender as a replacement for Edward Heath as party leader if the Conservatives decide to dump Heath. Also back to represent Pon- typool, Wales, is Leo Abse, a Labor left-winger, who has sponsored or co-sponsored legislation on divorce, homo- sexuality, family planning and financial compensation for widows. Another returning member is Clement Freud, grandson of Sigmund Freud, the father of psychoanalysis. Freud is perhaps best known in Britain for his high-brow television commercials for dog food. There were also a few well- known names in the loss col- umn in Thursday's balloting. Actress Vanessa Redgrave got only 572 votes as the Workers Revolutionary party candidate in an East London district. The seat was held for Labor by Reg Prentice. He received more than votes. Miss Redgrave's party was just one of many fringe groups that put up candidates vying for the 635 House of Commons seats Most of them were un- successful. Among the unsuccessful groups were: The Anti-Com- mon Market On Any Terms; World Government Party; Air, Road, Public Safety White Resident Party; Indus- trial Productivity for British Export Campaign; and Brit- ish Campaign To Stop Immi- gration.

OTTAWA (CP) The federal cabinet, in reviewing special advertising privileges for Time and Reader's Digest, is wrestling with an issue that has nagged four prime ministers. It dates back to 1957 when the Liberal government of Louis St. Laurent imposed a 20-per-cent tax on advertising in the Canadian editions of the two magazines. The move, designed to shift advertising from the foreign- owned publications to Cana- dian periodicals, was later abolished by the Progressive Conservative government of John Diefenbaker under pressure from a U.S. magazine lobby. At the same time, the government appointed a royal commission to report on the problems facing Canadian periodicals. It was led by Grattan O'Leary, then publisher of the Ottawa Jour- nal and now a Conservative senator. The commission, which re- ported in 1961, recommended legislation to prevent Cana- dian advertisers from claim- ing the same tax-exemptions for advertising in foreign periodicals that they could claim in Canadian magazines. The Diefenbaker govern- ment agreed but exempted Time and Reader's Digest, a move that many Canadian publishing spokesmen said largely destroyed the intent of the recommendation. Between them, the two magazines accounted for nearly half of the advertising revenue spent by Canadian companies. LAW IN 1964 Although the policy was enunciated during the Diefen- baker administration, it did not become law until 1964 when the Liberal government of Lester Pearson agreed to take the same stand on the issue. At the time, the government said the Canadian editions of the two magazines, both dating back to the 1940s, had earned a place for themselves among Canadian readers. But the primary motivation, explained by former finance minister Walter Gordon after his 1968 resignation from the Pearson cabinet, was inter- vention by late Time publisher Henry Luce. In his first public speech after leaving office, Mr. Gordon said he feared the publisher had enough influence with the U.S. government to upset negotia- tions then under way to estab- lish the Canada-U.S. auto pact. Subsequently, Mr. Gordon was quoted as saying his 1964 task of putting the special ex- emptions through Parliament was one of the most un- palatable of his government career. The next major controversy came in 1970 when the special Senate committee on the mass media, led by Liberal Senator Keith Davey, again called for abolition of special status for Time and Reader's Digest. CLIMATE WORSENED No action was taken but the political climate for the two magazines worsened with the growth of Canadian nation- alism, focusing attention on struggling Canadian periodicals, and the election this year of a majority Liberal government. Senator Davey was the chief Liberal campaign organizer for the July 8 election and is considered to have emerged from it with enhanced influence on Prime Minister Trudeau. No change has oc- curred since 1970 in the senator's views on special treatment for the two publi- cations. Sources say the subject came up in cabinet even before the election was called. Since then, State Secretary Hugh Faulkner has acknowledged that a review is under way. Officially, the government is maintaining an open mind but Time officials say they consider it virtually certain they will lose their special status. "It's a battle of the para- said one Time spokesman in reference to the behind the scenes tactics used in 1964. "No one has a leg to stand On." Time has announced that its Canadian edition, with about four pages of Canadian new an issue, will go out of business if its privileges are removed. Reader's Digest, less vocal than Time, has said removal of special status would cause serious trouble and it might be forced to abandon its Cana- dian edition. Mr. Faulkner, the cabinet minister most involved in the controversy, has been kinder to Reader's Digest than Time in recent statements. He said this week Reader's Digest has made an effort to Canadianize itself by selling 30 per cent of its stock to Canadian shareholders. No such effort has been made by Time, he said. Business outlook exhausting session By JOSEPH DUPUIS CP Business Editor Try to imagine a five-hour, debate-filled conference crammed with 20 major speeches on every segment of the economy. Ottawa agenda dull OTTAWA (CP) Unless some unexpected controver- sial issues none are foreseen in the immediate MPs appear to be digging in for a relatively dull session of Parliament. With the excitement of minority government eliminated, this new majority Parliament has offered few memorable moments in its first two weeks. And few changes are predicted.

"I will look into that par- ticular allegation and decide what is best to said State Secretary Hugh Faulkner, in reply to one question. "The public hearing which will take place will bring out all the said Agriculture Minister Eugene Whelan, in response to another question. "I think the Honorable Gen- tleman may have read that statement a little out of con- said Finance Minister John Turner. The government cer- tainly would be prepared to take reasonable remedies." replied Prime Minister Trudeau to another question. "It would be interesting for us to hear what the Honorable Member has in mind. Perhaps he might want to give us his views." "Nothing has says Patrick Nowlan The questions have also changed little. There are still woolly preambles to absorb the thrust of opposition probes, and there are fewer spicy interjections than in the last Parliament. There have been only two occasions when opposition members shouted "the same old bunch" at the Liberals. And on one of these occasions Mr. Trudeau cut this interjec- tion short by saying, "the same old bunch but a little more numerous this time." With an election some four years away, no one seems too excited. Even the legislation to end the grainhandlers strike scarcely raised an angry voice, despite many in- dividual disagreements. "Just compare this with the debate to end the railway strike last says one cabinet minister. "The op- position was alive then." The action will shift to com- mittees this week, when six different groups begin sifting through the government's spending estimates. But no one is betting on any im- mediate fireworks in these sessions either. Without that unexpected controversial issue, most MPs are predicting some two years of quiet retrenching. PUBLISHED DICTIONARY Gabriel Sagard, a lay brother of the RecoUet Order, published a dictionary of the Huron language in 1632. Then try to imagine a jour- nalist wading through this mountain of expert opinion and half-opinion, statistics and charts, in an effort to come up with somd kind of overall picture. What emerges is an exer- cise conducted in Canada several times a year called the Conference Board in Canada seminars. One was held this week in Montreal on the business out- look for 1975. Another is set for next month in Toronto on the metric system. One Canadian daily news- paper carried 15 stories total- ling more than words on the Montreal conference. It all adds up to a remarkable tour de force, but few would argue that the seminars are not worthwhile. More than 700 attended the Montreal meeting to hear and question speakers that includ- ed Ontario Treasurer John White, retailer Morgan Reid, steel industrialist MacKenzie McMurray. and several senior bankers. The board is the creation of about 500 associations, made up of leaders in industry, government and labor, as well as trade associations, agen- cies and private, non-profit organizations. The board came sharply into the public eye recently when, for the first time, it released a quarterly forecast, which was decidedly inflation for 1975 with 12 per cent price increases and 7.8 per cent un- employment.
