Television Crime Shows Cancelled TORONTO (CP) The CTV television network has imple- mented a policy of postponing all shows that have to do with political or premeditated crime. A spokesman for the CBC tel- network also said Fri- day that "we are conscious of the same thing and watching the situation closely."

NEW YORK (AP) Forty years ago Lowell Thomas put three 'jugs of applejack on a table and sat down with several CBS executives to plan a daily news broadcast. That day, Oct. 21, 1930, he went on the air for the first time. Thomas is still on the air. Still on at the same time, p.m. "When I first went on the air I had all the air of all the world Thomas recalled on the anniversary. "In those days sta- tions had unlimited power and I had listeners in Australia and the Arctic and on ships at sea." Thomas still has plenty of lis- teners, and it's estimated that in the last 40 years his voice has become the most heard in the world. He has been on the i air longer than any other broad- caster. His chronicles of his ad- ventures and travels are shown on television around the world. For 20 years he was the voice of Fox Movietone News.

When Canadian Pacific drove the last spike in the transcontinental line, we had just turned 21. The transcontinental line was completed on 1885. We go back to March 18th, 1864. Before Canada was even Canada. On that day, in the town of London, Ontario, 25 pioneer businessmen gathered together in the room above MacFie's Store, and founded what is now Canada Trust. Soon they had opened our very first office just behind that store. Now that small brick building behind 'MacFie's Store is gone. So is MacFie's Store. Our 25 founders have long since passed away. But the original idea born at that early meeting still lives on in our present company philosophy: "To bring the maximum amount of energy and in- telligence to bear on the project in order to most effectively serve the client." It's simple, true. But it works. Now, with over a century of experience behind us, we're one of Canada's largest trust companies with more branches coast to coast than anyone else. And our philosophy of service has made it all possible. Service. Service for every financial need. You get it the minute you walk in our door or dial our phone. So call or come in as soon as you can. CANADA TRUST .Lethbridge Calgary Edmonton Medicine Hat Red Deer Asked about his approach to broadcasting, Thomas said: "I've always considered myself as an observer of the human shadow show. I've never been a special pleader, but I've always been concerned. But as an ob- server I've always tried to avoid the gloomy. I've always been on at the same time, which is the dinner hour, and I didn't want to destroy the diges- tive system of America." -Monday, October 26, 1970 IHE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Reservoir Plan Okayed EDMONTON (CP) proval for construction Ap. of a' in central Alberta was given by the Alberta department of agri- culture.
