The senes maiks what calls "a netwoik caliber commitment" on the part the ABC stations Each station al ready is required to produce a half-hour a week of children's programming, and in addition the stations have bought Vision On, a widely acclaimed BBC series for deaf children to run adjacent to the ABC (network) after-school specials on the nrst Wednesdays of the month. The three classics are Fran- ces Hodgson Burnett's The Lit- tle Princess, The Pathfinder by James Fermmore Cooper, and The Fortunes of Nigel by Sir Walter Scott. They aie produc- ed by John McRae, who also produced The Last of the Mo- hicans, Tom Brown's School Days, and The Moonstone, sesn on PBS last season. Anyone who sobbed delighted- ly through the vicissitudes of Sara Crewe, The Little Prin- cess, and was put off by the Shirley Temple version, should be pleased by this production. It stars Deborah Makepeace as a Sara with considerably more gumption than the young lady from tho Good Ship Lollypoo. The Pathfinder, which willj air in five installments, is of course another of Cooper's Lea- therstccking Tales about Natty Bumppo and Chmgachgook, his Indian friend, while The For- tunes of Nigel is Scott's adven- ture classic about a Scottish nobleman fighting for personal justice. Over Seven there are four programs currently is a magazine program for children, a sort of 60 Minutes for young people, according to its producer, Danny Wilson, who also created the award-winning Discovery series for ABC In a sample screening recent- ly in New York, segments in- cluded Superbug, a superbly imaginative film produced by teen-ager Tony Joseph. Mmia- ture cars enact the triumph of Superbug, a jazzed up Volks- wagen serving as defender of compact cars against wicked Cadillacs, Buicks, and other outsazed vehicles Theie will be a minifilm made by youngsters, in each program Over Seven also will probab- ly include an explorer or wild- life segment in each show (an excellent film on coyotes was aired in the version in New York) as well as some sort of music. A study of Irene Cara, ear-old actress composer- singer, will be in the first install- ment Other segments include a visit to a farm where handi- cappsd children gam confidence through horseback riding. The ABC stations have sunk more than million in the production of Rainbow Sundae, which is scheduled so far to run through January. They also committed for newspaper ads alone, since they feel many good children's pro- grams have sunk from sight simply because nobody knew they were on Altogether Rainbow Sundae is a sizable undertaking, and the ABC stations are to be com- mended for their enterprise and commitment Changing of guard ends summer run OTTAWA (CP) The daily changing-the-guard show on Parliament Hill, one of the cap- ital's biggest tourist draws, has ended it's 15th con- secutive summer run.

All take a six week regular militia training course at Camp Pctawawa before the annual show begins.
