Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - February 18, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa Television Today llv Jav .Shut-hull Hy Jay Sharhutt PBS Finance Formula Debated NEW YOKK (AP) Com- paring SO cents with mil- lion is akin to likening a flea to an elephant. But both sums are being disputed in current proposals for long-range fi- nancing of public broadcast- ing. And oddly enough, the four- bit debate is of far more con- cern to public broadcasters, according to Hartford N. Ciunn, jr., president of the Public Broadcasting Service. He says it's crucial because it's at the heart of proposed formulas that in coming years will determine how much Uncle Sam will spend to back up public broadcasting funds raised from slate, local, foun- dation and business sources. One formula is in a five- year public broadcast financ- ing bill the White House Office of Telecommunications Policy is readying. It would require, OTP of- ficials say, from non- federal sources for every one dollar the federal government kicks in for public broadcast- ing. The other formula, which Gunn says is in a report by a task force of top public broad- casting officials, calls for a ratio of only two nonfedoral dollars for every one from the federal government. Both sides agree public broadcasting should get its federal dollars under a five- year plan to reassure long- range planning and stability that didn't exist in the old year-to-year system. An OTP spokesman says his office's draft bill would autho- rize the spending of mil- lion over the five-year period. But the-task force says million is needed to do the job adequately, Gunn said. And while the million difference is being debated and defended by each side, it's not a major issue yet, he added. "I Ihink everyone is prctly much agreed that we don't have to resolve that in ad- he said. "The issue of what is ihe appropriate ceil- ing (in a five-year bill) can be resolved by congress when hearings are held." The real problem, he said, is that OTP wants agreement on its proposed federal spend- ing ratio before it sends the administration's five- year measure to Congress. OTP officials say that's cor- rect and defend the ratio as one they feel will promote ;i maximum effort to increase local and private support for public broadcasting through- oul Ihe United States. Rut Gunn said the broad- casters want the higher fed- cral-to-local spending ratio because it's extremely dif- ficult to project how much nonfedcral financial support can be counted on in the next five years. If the OTP ratio is the basis for federal matching funds, he said, broadcasters may find that even though sufficient federal funds are authorized "there's no way to raise enough money to come any- where near" a given year's federal spending ceiling. "And we could be worse off than we are today." Both sides say they hope to resolve the impasse and show a united front when the bill goes to congress, possibly by mid-March. But an indication of how things aland may come late this month.' The board of the Corpora- lion for Public Broadcasting, which administers federal funds for public broadcasting, will meet then to discuss both the OTP and task force pro- posals. And they may vote then to recommend how public broad- casting's five-year plan should look and cost, a spokesman said.

ICC Chairman George Staf- ford called on congress to look into the ICC's authority to deter- mine whether it should be ex- panded to cover independent truckers not now regulated by the commission. The commission announced it had adopted a regulation which provides that trucking compa- n i c s compensate independent owner-operators who work jnder contract to them on the 5asis of: The 6 percent freight rale: surcharge which the ICC an- nounced last week to cover ris- ing costs to independent truckers. The surcharge was of- fered lo help end a truck slop- page.

Col. James Lee said Monday. Lee is professor of aerospace studies at Coe. The continuation of the pro- gram was assured with a letter to Coe President Leo L. Nuss- baum from Robert M. White, notifying him that Coe has beer taken off graduate production probation. Each program must graduate a minimum of 17 enrollees each year, a requirement Coe hac been unable to meet for the lasl three years. A similar problem affected Drake university prompting an announcemeni last week that Drake will dose its program. Lee said a big factor in Coe's removal from probation was the large junior class of 25 cadets, scheduled next year. Stafford said the trucking firms would have to adopt the procedure that would result in Ihe most money to the indepen- dent operators. He said Ihe new regulation was necessary be- cause some trucking firms had not applied for the surcharge. The leasing rule announced Friday is mandatory, Stafford said. He said it would affect all trucking operators except those for commissioning It will be a continuing effort, Lee said, for a school the size of Coe to maintain required enroll- ment figures. "We must continue to in- crease our advanced enrollment in order to maintain our via- bility he said. New York Times Increases Prices NEW YORK (AP) The New York Times increase its newsstand price next week subject to favorable rulings by the Cost of Living Council because of rising production costs, the paper said Sunday. The price of the Times next Sunday will rise from 50 to 60 cents a copy in the- city and suburban areas, and from 75 to 90 cents outside a 50-mile radi- us. On Feb. 25, the price of the daily Times outside the -50-mile radius will rise to 20 cents, with the city and suburban price re- maining at 15 cents.

Additionally, state association Prcsidont Jack Everett was at the .meeting and reported few stations in Iowa will qualify for the increase. Even for stations that do qualify, the penny per gallon is far from being adequate to cover the loss Incurred from reduced gallonage, Dulzicl said. For a gallon station, a 125 percent loss of gallonage would mean losing gallons or in station he said.
