Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - February 11, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa 10 The Cedar Kaplds GaaeUe: Mon.. l''cb. 11. 1974 Television Today By Jay Sharbutt Controversy Continues NEW YORK (AP) The re- fusal of ABC-TV to air iasl week's "Dick Cavett Show" featuring four radicals of the 1960s may raise cries of net- work censorship. But it isn't all that cut and dried. Cavett himself approved the grounds for ABC's action. And if there is to be finger- pointing, it shouldn't be solely at the ABC brass who substi- tuted a bland 1972 rerun for Cavett's taped chat with radi- cate Abbie Hoffman, Jerry Rubin, Tom Hayden and Ren- nie Disvis. The talk show star is in a position not unlike that of a hound allowed to bare his fangs with the understanding the bridgework can be re- moved when it comes time to bite. According to Cavett's law- yer, his agreement with ABC gives the network the option of requiring him to "present the contrasting viewpoints on particular issues within the same program." An ABC spokesman said the agreement is based on the Federal Communications Commission's fairness doc- trine, which requires broad- casters to air contrasting views on controversial issues of public importance. He said ABC executives, after inspecting the Hoffman- Rubin-Hayden-Davis segment that had been videotaped Wednesday night, decided it lacked sufficient "balance" in five areas discussed. The areas, he said, "in- volved the capitalist system, the administration, our sys- tem of justice and the courts and U. S. foreign policy with regard to Vietnam and Cam- bodia." He said Cavelt was "asked under the terms of his con- tract to provide an opposing viewpoint." Cavett refused, he added, and ABC exercised its right to yank the show, an ac- tion that occurred just hours before the show was to appear Thursday night. Cavett subsequently denied the show lacked balance and insisted emphatically he'd provided the contrasting views sought by ABC. Regardless of whose claim is right, the agreement Cavett signed with ABC still is far more restrictive than the FCC's fairness doctrine. It's ABC's own version of same. The FCC doctrine doesn't require those "contrasting viewpoints" mentioned b y ABC to be in the same pro- gram in which controversial issues are raised. Cavett's pact does, if ABC asks for it. And the network did. A spokesman for Cavett says the star expressed "puz- zled wonderment" at ABC's decision Thursday night. But Cavett has only himself and the network, if he chooses to blame. There's no barrage of bad- mouthing being emitted yet. And viewers may still get to see the disputed show. Both ABC and Cavett's pro- ducer, John Gilroy, says talks are under way to hopefully re- solve the "balance" impasse. "We're going to continue to talk with Gilroy says. "We'd like to get it on the air." Doctors Cite Diet Effect on Brain NEW YORK What you cat apparently can affect the chemistry of your brain. And any change could perhaps affect appetite, sleep, sexual activity and other behavior, two scien- tists report. A steak dinner or a spaghetti dinner thus might have quite dif- ferent effects, their findings suggest. In animal studies, the scien- tists find, different types of foodstuffs can alter (lie amount of a powerful chcmi- i cal, serotoniu, involved in (lie activity of brain nerve cells. Carbohydrates sugars and starchy foods like spaghetti increase the available serotonin. But lots of protein foods, like a steak or milk, can reduce it say John B. Fernslrom, Ph.D. and Richard J.

But carbohydrates, like that n spaghetti, spur the secretion of the hormone insulin, which in urn increases the level of tryp- ophan in the blood and lowers he blood level of the competing amino acids. The result is an ncrease in the amount of sero- onin in the brain.
