Ah, snow! A Canadian Press photographer caught these two youngsters happily flying
through the skies on a toboggan in Ottawa. But the sky-bound fantasy ended with a
r hard thump shortly after this picture was taken.

TV comes to South Africa:
A Iit, byut not for everybody

join The Daily

JOHANNESBURG, South Africa (A') - Tele-
vision finally came to South Africa Monday
night, bringing comedy by Bob Newhart and a
local pair named Hal Orlandini and Rod Hud-
son, Chopin played by Artur Rubenstein and
inaugural remarks by Prime Minister John
Vorster.
Orlandini and Hudson were the critics' favor-
ites.
"If this is the way SABC-TV means to carry
on, they are going the right way about it," said
the Rand Daily Mail.
The same paper said the Newhart show, im-
ported from the United States, "hit us too sud-
denly . . . Mr. Newhart's humor is something
which takes getting used to."
Vors' -r was dour and unsmiling as he inaug-
urated the service.
"I must confess that as a person I am not
over-enthusiastic about television," he said.
"But I am pleasantly surprised so far with the
quality of test transmissions. I think that all
involved have done exceedingly well."
With 26-inch color TV sets selling for $1,000
and 250,000 sets sold in the past six months, the
opening-night audience was estimated at a
million, almost all of them white.

Even if South Africa's 18 million impoverish-
ed blacks could afford sets, they have almost
no electricity in the segregated townships and
rural reserves in which they live.
The Calvinists of the ruling National party
opposed television for two decades as a cor-
rupter of morals and because they feared it
would help break down the racial barriers
erected by their apartheid policy. They finally
gave in to public pressure four years ago and
authorized the South African Broadcasting Corp.
to go visual.
Now the government's opponents fear the
new medium will be a vehicle for government
propaganda. But the first 20-minute news pro-
gram reported all major international and local
events, including the war in Angola, factually
and objectively.

RISING COSTS, DELAYS
ON TRANS-ALASKA
PIPELINE
NEW YORK (AP) - Prob-
lems of logistics, weather,
equipment and manpower are
raising the costs and delaying
construction o the trans-Alaska
pipeline, contractors have told
Engineering News-Record.
Alyeska Pipeline Service Co.,
Anchorage, which is in charge
of the project, denies that costs
have risen sharply and that de-
lays are significant.
While Alyeska estimates the
porject will cost $5.9 billion,
some contractors seethe cost
running as high as $10 billion,
reports the magazine.
Work was begun in March on
the 798-mile pipeline linking
Prudhoe Bay in the north with
the port o Valdez in the south.
Target date for completion is
mid-1977.
