The transport commission has just finished hearing a presentation by CP Rail for higher fares and reduced frequency of runs during all but the summer months on The Canadian, its Montreal-Vancouver transcontinental. In the wake of the June decision not to allow CP Rail to scrap the service, the commission asked the railway to come back before it with proposals on how financial losses for the service could be reduced. ASKED MORE MONEY CP Rail proposed fare Increases ranging up to 25 per cent and reduction to three trains a week from the preoent daily service during the off season. 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 announcement what amount of loss it claims on operation of its transcontinental service. CP Rail, in its early submission to abandon The Canadian, told the commission the train lost $15 million in 1968.

Another ACME Breakthrough 'lifetime Picture Tube Warranty" "Lifetime Picture Tube Warranty'* ON EVERY TELEVISION SET SOLD BY ACME TELEVISION Including Black and White and Colerl (New or Used) All those who have purchased a TV from Acme since Jan. 2, 1970 are eligible for the protection plan. Please contact one of our staff and have your warranty registered. PREVIEW SHOWING THURS., FRI., SAT. Nov. 5-6-7 ON THE NEW  MAGNAVOX  HITACHI  SYLVANIA  AGS  ADMIRAL  TOSHIBA at the College Mall ACME TELEVISION LTD. Two Locations To Serve You. 535 13th St. North and College Mall "TELEVISION IS OUR MIDDLE NAME" 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 clear 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 just what you've been waiting for. And we'd like to tell you all about it. New Dimensional Color makes 'true to life' viewing � reality-Take our 'true to life' dimensions. We've revised our screen height to screen width ratio to coincide exactly with that of television cameras. So ^ now Sylvania shows all thatThe camera intended. 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 elements 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 Automatic 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 continuously adjusts to a station's carrier signal. So Sylvania always gives you the strongest possible reception. Automatically, of course. 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 enables 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 VHF 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 further. Chairside Color' Control lets you operate the whole Sylvania show from the comfort of your favorite chair. Can you think of a better place? We also have a chassis for people who prefer their color television with no tube but the picture tube. Sylvania viewing is even more reliable the Gibraltar solid state way. And if you choose a 26" Sylvania you can take perfect flesh tones for granted. New Perma Tint locks them in and eliminates the annoying greens from the picture. We think these ideas will help you enjoy Sylvania even more. But then, we let you have the final say. Sylvania is the best color protection in the business Anice thing about our . warranty is the easy-to-follow question and answer format. But the best thing it the manner in which we take care of you. A full five year plan covers the picture tube and all solid state devices. Everything else is protected for one year. And you needn't worry about replacement parts. They're guaranteed for the balance of the warranty period. We're not a manufacturer who's afraid to mention breakdowns. They happen because a color television is a highly complex piece of machinery. Besides, a Sylvania color television is going to last a very long time. Realizing today's problems of repair and subsequent high costs, we've created our own coast-to-coast service organization. Our factory-trained personnel will be easily accessible. They will do whatever has to be done quickly, at a low cost. A Sylvania color television will be easy to service. We designed it that way. The finest quality comes at the best price Sylvania will save you some annoying expenses. Like government import duties and international shipping costs. For these two reasons as well as being able to give you more personal attention, we make our complete line of portable, table and console models right here in Canada. But only to the exact specifications established for our award-winning line in the U.S. So there's no question about quality. Which you now know comes at the best price. And with that our story ends. Except you haven't seen our Sylvania color television yet. We suggest you look for it at your dealer's now. And test our color against every other one there. We think you'll agree that Sylvania is just what you've been waiting for. And more.
