Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - February 18, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa / elevision / aday By Jay Sh ur bu ti PBS Finance Formula Debafed NKW YOUK (Al*) Coni paring 50 cents with $.115 mil lion is akin to likening a flea to an elephant. But both sums are being disputed iii current proposals for long-range ti mincing of public broadcast big. And oddly enough, the four bit debate is of far more concern to public broadcasters, according to Hartford N. Gunn, jr., president, of the Public Broadcasting Service. Ile says ifs crucial because ifs at the heart of proposed formulas that iii coming years will determine how much Uncle Sam will spend to back up public broadcasting funds raised from state, local, foundation and business sources One formula is in a five-year public broadcast financing bill the White House Office of Telecommunications Policy is readying. It would require, OTP officials say, $2.50 from nonfederal sources for every one dollar the federal government kicks in for public broadcasting. * * * The other formula, which Gunn says is in a report by a task force of top public broadcasting officials, calls for a ratio of only two nonfederal 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 authorize the spending of $435 million over the five-year period. But the task force says $750 million is needed to do the job adequately, tlunn said. And while the $315 million difference is being debated and defended by each side, it’s not a major issue yet, he added.

OTP officials say that’s correct and defend the ratio as one they feel will promote a maximum effort to increase local and private .support for public broadcasting throughout the United States. But Gunn said the broadcasters want the higher fed eral-to-local spending ratio because it’s extremely difficult to project how much nonfederal financial support can be counted on in the next five years. lf the OTI* ratio is the basis for federal matching lunds. he said, broadcasters may find that even though sufficient federal funds are authorized “theres no way to raise enough money to come anywhere 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 hill goes to congress, possibly by mid-March. But an indication of how things stand may corno late this month. The board of the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, which administers federal funds for public broadcasting, will meet then to discuss both the OTP and task force proposals. And they may vote then to recommend how public broadcasting's five-year plan should look and cost, a spokesman said. By Boger Green Almost nobody is going to qualify’’ in Linn county for the one cent. per gallon gasoline margin increase granted certain service stations over the weekend, Al Dalziel, president of the Linn County Service Station Dealers Assn , reported Monday. Ile predicted a strike of .service stations nationwide could be reality in two to four weeks if the Federal Energy Office (KEO) doesnlt come up with a better; solution to the service .station of>erators’ plight The KEO .Saturday anil 0 ii n c c d service stations whose gasoline allocation Is not equal to 85 percent of 1972 gallonage would he granted an additional one cent per gallon increase in price lo cover the reduction, effective March I. Dalziel said he took a survey of about 35 .station operators on New Regulations Aimed To Aid Independent Truckers hand Sunday at a meeting with Sen. Tom Riley to discuss a dealers* protection bill in the state legislature. Two Qualify “Of everyone in the room, only two will qualify for the increase and they were both independents,” he reported. Additionally, stale association President 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 I rom being adequate to cover the loss Incurred from reduced gallonage, Dulziel said.

Decries Flood of Gas Swallowers PITTSBURGH (AP) - The Pittsburgh Poison Center says it has been flooded with victims of the energy crisis — people who' inadvertently swallow gasoline While siphoning it. “We were getting at least 26 cases a day for a while.” Marge Stagman said Sunday while on duty as a nurse at the center. “It’s let up in the last week, but we’ve still had six or seven today.” No deaths have been reported but several persons, have been hospitalized.
