In the wake of the June deci- sion not to allow CP Rail to scrap the service, the commis- sion asked the railway to back before it with proposals on how financial leant for the service could be reduced, ASKED MORE MONEY CP Rail proposed fare In- creases ranging up to 25 per cent and reduction to three trains a week from the daily service during the off son. The proposal is still under study by the commission. Since June 18, however, when CP Rail was ordered not to abandon The Canadian it has been eligible for federal subsidy on the train's operating losses. A spokesman said CNR is applying essentially "for the same thing." CNR did not say in the an- nouncement what amount ol loss it claims on operation of itt transcontinental s e r v i c e. CP Rail, in its early submission to abandon The Canadian, told the commission the train lost million in 1968.

You may be too late to have the first color television on your street, but you're just in time for the best. Perhaps you haven't bought color television because you haven't seen what you really want. Perhaps you've worried about tuning cleat color. Or you've been fearful of the high .costs of servicing. Well, now is the time to look again. Because we at Sylvania have justwhat you've been Waiting for. And we'd like to tell you all about it. New Dimensional Color makes 'true to life' viewing a reality Take our 'true to life' dimensions. We've re- vised our screen height to screen width ratio to co- incide exactly with that of television cameras. So r now Sylvania shows all that the camera in- tended. And you never miss a thing. To give you 'true to life' color, we've added a wrap-around "black composite" for very high contrast. And other special ele- ments for a definite brightness advantage. It is this brightness, contrast combination that makes Sylvania's new dimensional picture tube the sharpest ever seen. Fourteen leading television manufacturers use Sylvania picture tubes. So we must be doing something right. Perfect tuning is now automatic We do however ask you to tune each channel the first time. But only the first time. After that, our Memory Fine Tuning device goes to work. It locks in your perfect choice and automatically remembers it for you every- time thereafter. Automatic Fine Tuning also includes a Deluxe 3-Stage Video IF Amplifier for more pleasing sound. A Keyed Automatic Gain Control that keeps the contrast uniform even in difficult reception areas. And an Automa- tic Degaussing Unit that purifies the color as soon as the set warms-up. Warm-up, by the way; takes only five seconds or less with new Instant Color. Finally, Automatic' Fine Tuning contin- uously adjusts to a station's carrier'signal. So Sylvania always gives you the strongest possible reception. Automatically, of course. J Gibraltar" Chassis eliminates heat and power overload problems We've designed out these two major causes of television failure by designing in two new features. First is a special Line Voltage Control. This little switch at the back of our set en- ables you to choose the best voltage for your area. And the second is really a first. To the industry, that is. As a matter of fact we're very proud of our High Voltage Tripler. It's one solid state device that eliminates two most troublesome receiving tubes. And two pretty hot ones at that. So Sylvania runs cooler now. On a lot less power. Sylvania has more bright ideas If you don't-like the idea of twisting UHF and VHP dials, you'll like our Style 4C647. Instant Pushbutton Tuning makes it the right Sylvania for you: Or perhaps you'd like us to take you one step
