Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 18, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Aiiik will be able to see all of Canada at one time By JOHN HAKUKON New York Times Service TORONTO T he world's first domestic communications satellite will rise from Cape Kennedy next month to serve all of Canada in a single sweep. Tha satellite is named Chief rabbis face thorny problems JERUSALEM (AP) Two young liberal rabbis, one a for- mer army general and (he other born in Iraq, defeated veteran religious leaders Sun- day in elections for the lead- ership of two religious commu- nities. Shlomo Goi-en, the former chief military rabbi, receiver 89 of 150 votes cast for chie rabbi of Israel's Ashkenzim, or Eastern European, Jewish com munily. Ovad-lah Yosef, former heac of Tel Aviv's Sephanlic, or Ori ental, community, received 8 votes to become the new chie Sephardic rabbi. Defeated were the incumben Ashkenzai Issar Yehuda Unter man, 86, and Sephardi Yitzha' Nissim, 76. Rabbi Goren is 55 and Habb Yosef is 52. The results were seen as victory for the younger rabbi over hard-line religious ele inents. Many Israelis expected Gore and Yosef to untangle some o the problems which hav tlirown Israel into religious con troversies in recent years, in eluding the problems of "who a Jew" and marriage betwee Jews and non-Jews, current! forbidden in Israel. SOME UPSET Nissim and Untcrman upsi some secular Israelis by the failure to solve these question, and the imposition of a ban p public transport and entertai menl on the Sabbath and othe restrictions. But the ultra-Orthodox ha' expressed fears that the nev liberal rabbis will overturn o religious law that has rule Jewish life. Goren has said t! law must be brought up to da to make it viable to life in modem Jewish state. Ihe Eskimo word for olher. The name was submit- d by a Montreal Bookkeeper 10 speaks no Eskimo, and dged by a contest committee at included Marshall Mcl.u- an, Ihc communications guru. The satellite is designed to nk all of Canada, from east- nmost to westernmost, and om the populous south lo the olated Arctic. Telesat Canada, the company inch has built and will oper e Canada's aniksatcllites, as created as a special public id private corporation by arliament in 1069. Anik 1, to be placed in orbil ov. 9, and its two brothers 2 and 3, will be, In effect, licrowave relay towers in uter space miles above he earth in equato-ial orbit. Fortunately, a satellite quatorial orbit is ideally laced to blanket Canada's eographical land mass with its blong beam. In one glance, Anik 1 wiL see" all of Canada from At- anlic to Pacific and from the American border to the Arctic Ocean. Telecast Canada wil wn and operate 35 earths! a ions (only two of them manned) to receive the tele- radio and other data sig nals that the satellite can re- ay. NO FACTOR A major thrust of UK domes- .ic satellite will be in Canada 'ar north and Arctic island vhere conventional radio com munications are spotty, tele- vision is almost non-existen and telephone connections icverely restricted by rugge terrain. Distances between commun eating links will no longer be factor since it costs no mor via the communications sate lite U> communicate across miles than across 40. First customers lor Anik's 1 channels are the national-wid Canadian Broadcasting Corpo ation and major tele-commun calion companies, becaus Telesat management decidec at the start only entire chan nek would be leased. The Canadian Broadcastin Corporation, Canada's hilingu state-owned radio and T broadcasting system, has lea, ed three channels. One wi beam French-language-TV pr grains from Montreal and t' other two will send Englis language programs. Signals received at rth stations will be distributed microwave to CBC stations, eluding the very few in North- n and Arctic Canada. OINT VENTURE The 13 major common car- er customers, including the :11 Telephone' Company of anada, ajid CN-CP Tfle-Com- unications, a joint venture of anada's largest privately and ublicly-owned railway sys- ms, have leased four other hannels for telephone and var- us kinds of data transmis- on through Canada. Sometime in 1974, an eighth idio frequency channel will be iascti to tlie Canadian Over- cos Telecommunication Cor- oration, a Canadian govem- nent corporation like the CBC, ut in the international cable usiness. This will connect the British telephone circuils of the ew trans-Atlantic cab'le. Two more Anik radio fre- .uency channels will provide so- ailed telephone messages to s olated Northern and Arctic Canada. In all, 28 of Telesat Canada's 55 earth stations have been lo- ated to serve most of Canada beyond the huge urban centres lugging the American border. REASONS Many factors favored the speedy development of Cana- da's satellite. Politically, it is part of the grand design of Ca- tadian federalism of Prime Minister Pierre Tnideau. This ncludes his declarations of Ca- nadian sovereignty over Arctic waters and embraces the con- cept of satellite TV and radio programming in the indigen- ous languages of Canada's lar north as well as in English and FYench. Second, the historic tradition in Canada of using the Crown corporation, (a government- sponsored to fund and build expensive, transcon- tinental communications sys- tems, provided the workable and acceptable formula for public and private enterprise to come together In telesat Canada's unusual corporate structure. Telesat Canada is a mixed corporation of users and own- ers. Telesat's mixed English and French Canadian top manage- ment includes French-speaking Chairman, J, Alphonse Ouimet, a past president of the CBC.
