Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - January 29, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa The Cedar Kapids Gazette: Tucs.. Jan. 29, 1971 Television Today By Les Brown Radical Financial Plan for PBS NEW YORK (NYT) The Ford Foundation has dis- closed that it will withdraw its support of public televi- sion broadcasting over the next few years. It has been one of the non-commercial system's chief benefactors for more than two decades. The withdrawal has prompt- ed the public television in- dustry to adopt a radical new networking plan, under which the individual stations would pay for the production of na- tional programs and, to a large extent, would determine which shows would be pro- duced. David M. Davis, program officer in charge of public broadcasting for the Ford Foundation, said the organiza- has given more than million to public broadcasting since decided upon an "orderly withdrawal" over the next four or five years because it believes the time has come for the industry to stand on its own feet. For. sevcraj weeks, staff members of the foundation have been drawing up a schedule of terminal grants to public television stations and production centers, which, sources estimate, will amount to million over a period of several years. At an annual meeting of the industry in Washington, public television station operators voted overwhelmingly to es- tablish a "marketplace coop- erative" which, in effect, would create a national pro- gram schedule by democratic process. The radical aspect of the plan .is that most of the na- tional funds for public televi- sion will be distributed to the local stations rather than to a central programming source. All excess funds from any increased congressional ap- as the million that had been added this be distrib- uted proportionally among the 220 stations in the system. Those funds, along with th Ford Foundation's tormina grants, would give the station buying power for the kinds o national programs each sires, since they would pro vide the essential financia backing for national produc lions. John Jay Iseliu, president o WNET, Channel 13 in Nev York, stated that the industrj is entering a new era in whicl "our old welfare mentality being replaced by a market place mentality, a new cycii of buying and selling among ourselves." Iselin said the new coopera live plan afforded the station manager a number of options with regard to nighttime pro grams. He may pay a pro-ra- ta sum to receive a national program at night over the public broadcasting system he may keep the extra funds he receives to produce local programs, or he may invest with a few other stations to buy regionally certain pro- grams that would not be of- fered nationally. Such, station, consortiums have actually been operating for years. On numerous oc- casions, several of the larger stations in the East have pro- duced or purchased programs that the Public Broadcasting Service would not send out na- tionally for reason of their controversial or sophisticated content. The Bruce Jay Friedman play, with its scenes of nudity and its street- flavored dialog, was one ex- ample, the British production of "Nana" another. Under the new arrange- ment, the Public Broadcasting System would become mere- ly a distribution mechanism, rather than a network that de- t e r m i n e d which programs would be produced and of- fered for national air-play.

The bill, one of Robert Kay's 44 legislative proposals, would allow the trucks to operate as they had for the last 25 years under "open cities" concept. The Iowa highway commis- sion currently is under a cour injunction lo allow trucks up to feet long and twin trailet trucks up to 65 feet to enter border cities to load and unload. Iowa law now limits single- trailer trucks to 55 feet in length and twin trailer trucks to 60 feel.

U.S. Has First Trading In Thrc Years WASHINGTON (AP) The United Slates finished 1973 with a surplus in its foreign trade of billion, the first trade surplus in three years, the gov- ernment reported Monday. The surplus was buoyed by a record monthly trade surplus of million in December. Exports shot to record high le- vels during the month while inports declined substantially, jxcept for oil. The commerce department said U.S. exports for all of 1973 lolulcd hllllon, aJ4 percent increase over while Imports totaled 169 bll- UOLI, up only 24 percent ever 1972. The department report added Dial the tolal trade surplus for (he year was com- pared with U'ailo deficit of billion in 1972 and a deficit of billion in 1971. The main factor contributing to the big turnaround in the country's trade, government economists said, was two de- valutions of the U.S. dollar, which made U.S. goods cheaper overseas and foreign goods more expensive in this country.
