He noted that mechanical failures a.'e to be expected on a demonstration vehicle which has been developed rapidly. However, he said 800 miles of test driving had revealed two things about the steam bus: is substantially cleaner than a diesel-powered bus. Emission tests showed the steam bus would have no dif- ficulty meeting 1975 state standards.

Napuk said there had been seme mechanical trouble with all of them, but it was too early to tell whether this was a problem inherent in steam engines. He said the greatest ob- stacle to getting a steam bus on the street for regular use would be adequate develop- ment funding. The federal department of transportation has financed much of the wst and lias not decided whether to continue the funding, he said. Meanwhile, mechanics were fixing the broken boiler fan drive bolt that had halted the bus, and passenger runs were scheduled for the next few days. Ancient town below ground KAMPSVILLE, 111. (AP) Director of excavations at the Koster archeological site in west-central Illinois reported Friday discovery of a commu- nity predating 6000 EC, lying more than 34 feet below ground. Dr. Stuart Struever and James A. Brown, professor of archeology at Northwestern University, Evanston, said test pits dug this month enabled 120 professional and student re- searchers to recover a spear- head and fireplaces from the community, the earliest settle- ment found to date at the site. top man in a triumvirate of programming decision-makers for English-language CBC, looks to attain this balance through "my knowledge of the grassroots in Canada." 'I know Canada rery well and I won't have an office with- out a map of Canada opposite where I sit. Arthur Weinthal, director of programming for CTV, stresses the importance of "consulting with our 16 stations across the country11 in deciding .how best to achieve a viewer-appeal bal- ance when planning programm-1 ing schedules. HOLDS VETO POWER Mr. Garriock, who describes himself as "the computer with all the data" on budgets, rat- ings, union contracts and re- gional needs and attitudes, has the veto power over the recom- mendations of Knowtlon Nash, director of TV information pro- grams, and Thorn Benson, di- rector of TV entertainment pro- grams. But consultation on choice of programs shown on the CBC's 43 owned and affiliated stations not limited to these three men, and the public viewpoint "definitely has a role to play in our decision says Mr. Garriock. "I get a summary of every phone call and of every letter that comes to the CBC com- menting on our programming. The biggest problem is that the group of people who care about what is being shown in their homes is too small. Also salesmen, who advise on the potential of particular pro- tim slots left open for local station use. Canadian content will aver- age about 70 pOT cent for the season, Mr. Garriock said. INCREASES PROGRAMMING Jlr. Weinthal said the CTV has increased its network pro- gramming for the coming sea- son to 6-1 hours, 14 more hours than last season, and Canadian content over-all would average 60 per cent.

Pensioners said caught in squeeze OTTAWA (CP) Opposition Leader Robert Stanfield called Friday for immediate emer- gency assistance to old age pensioners whom he said were caught in a price squeeze caused by rising food costs. He suggested that the govern- ment may have to resort to temporary wage and price con- trols to hold down the cost of living. Statistics released ear- lier today indicate that food prices rose 2.2 per cent be- tween July Bnd August, the largest recorded between those two months since the 1960s. Mr. Stanfield said the govern- ment should take action through order-in-council to meet the needs of the pensio- ners. "Although they will get no further cost-of-living adjust- ments until next April, they are i caught in a food price squeeze I that is unprecedented in recent years and that tlireatens to con- tinue in the coming months." Any adjustment should com- pensate for price rises since Aprkl, Mr. Stanfield added. Mr. Stanfield said he thought that wage and price controls would not work In the long run, but temporary controls could meet an emergency situation. The controls would he "far more than resorting to the slow-down in the econ- omy with accompanying unem- ployment ss the Trudeau gov- rrnment did previously, Jlr. Slanfield said.
