   Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - February 19, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa                                10 The Cedar Rapids Gazette: TIIM.. Feb. 19. 1974 Cites EEC Bars to Feedgrain Exports Pay-PBS Proposal NEW YORK (AP) By early April, the board of the Public Broadcasting Service expects to vote on a proposal to radically alter the way the nation's 240 public TV stations get national programs. The proposal, made Hi years ago by PBS president Hartford N. Gunn, jr., would partly abolish the qualifica- tion is important PBS' cur- rent practice of feeding na- tional programs free to its stations. It's already been approved in principle by the board and the stations, Gunn says, and will be explained in detail to station officials in a series of meetings next month prior to the final vote. the. proposal would make stations pay a percentage of the cost of some, but not all, the national shows they'd air. Under the plan, the Cor- poration for Public Broadcast- ing, which administers federal funds for public broadcasting, would finance nationally- broadcast programs for no more than two years. Current programs such as "Sesame Street" or "Firing would be directly af- fected by the proposal. If stations wanted to con- tinue those and new programs beyond CPB's two-year limit, they'd have to pay for them with their own money, be it from federal, foundation, local or private sources. That's where the national "auction" system comes in. Gunn says PBS would pre- pare a list of programs for which CPB's fiscal clock has expired. The list would es- timate the cost each station would have to pay for each program if all stations bought it. The stations then would tell PBS which programs they'd buy. The information would go into a computer, which then would base the per-sta lion cost of the program on how many stations were will ing to buy it. The net result would be the more stations willing to paj for the series, the lower its cost to them, and vice versa. Henry Loomis, CPB pres ident, says there are two basic reasons for the proposw system. One is to encourage greater programming initia live and local financial sup port in local public broadcast- ing. The other is financial. The Ford Foundation, public TV's biggest friend in the private sector, has put about ?250 mil- lion into public TV since 1951, but plans to phase out its sup- port in four or five years. Although proposals are afoot to authorize a five-year plan of federal spending for public broadcasting, CPB still won't have enough in the till to continue paying for both existing programs and the development of new ones. "That is clearly an intolera- ble situation, so we're going to divest ourselves entirely of funding continuing he said, referring to CPB-sup- ported shows that last beyond two years. Gunn says PBS still will be able to offer a variety of na- tional programming without requiring the stations showing same to help pay for the cost of production. Such offerings, partly or wholly funded by CPB, he said, would include pilot shows for new series, mini- series such as "Religious one-time specials and special news shows. Another category of "free" national offerings would be programs wholly underwritten by foundations or such cor- -porate benefactors as Mobil.or Exxon. However, he said, limits would be set on how much national programming corporations could support.
