Urge Lifting of Restrictions on Cable Television WASHINGTON (API - Cable television should be permitted to grow in a free market atmosphere without unnecessary re-! striations, the justice department has toJd the Federal Communications Commission. The department’s anti-trust division, in a 14-page legal brief I Friday, called on the FCC to lift (present restrictions on cable TY and suspend consideration of new regulations for five years. “As a matter of law and policy. the commission should not endeavor to supress new modes | of electronic communications such as pay cable,” the brief said. “There would seem to be no present danger to the public interest in removing the existing restrictions.” The FCC should “rescind the (existing pay cabile prohibitions I in their entirety effective Jan I. 1975. or some other date in the near future.'*’ department lawyers said And they suggested a five-vear freeze on imposition of any new regulations, saying the FCC would have better evidence of cable TV performance after that period The present restrictions, the department asserted, have discouraged potential investment in cable TV systems and have deprived the public of the benefits of greater diversity in programming that would be available if the systems were permitted to develop freely The department asserted the commission has paid little heed to the needs of the public, foe using instead on the demands of conventional broadcasters fearful that cable TV will siphon off commercial programming. REHOBOTH. Mass. (AP) -Rabbi Baruch Korff. who vows not to “let the former President be harassed by legal matters,” says he has set up a trust fund which has paid $30,000 of Richard Nixon’s lawyers’ bills. Rabbi Korff, who heads the National Citizens Committee for Fairness to the Presidency, said in an interview Thursday night. i“We feel an obligation to our former President.” He said Nixon has amassed i $155,000 in legal expenses. Initial Payment He said he contributed the, 'first $1,000 to the trust — called; the President Nixon Justice Fund — and. the committee he heads leaned it an additional! $30,000. Rabbi Korff said “we have a1- 1 ready made the initial pay-! iment” to Nixon’s lawyers. But) he refused to disclose who re-lceived the funds, saying. “It is'' | a private matter ” Spokesmen for Nixon were unavailable for comment. The rabbi said he has not spoken to Nixon about the trust. I But he said he “sent him a letter advising him what we are, doing — and in the letter I stat- 1 cd we number three million Americans." The trust was set up at a Washington. DC . bank whose name the rabbi would not disclose. as “the bank does not want publicity.” “Expect To Bear It” Rabbi Korff said that serving along with him as trustees are Jack McLaughlin, a Nixon supporter from Baltimore, and Bruce Herschensohn. a former Nixon aide who lives in Washington. Rabbi Korff said he expected [Americans to contribute to the trust without a national fundraising campaign. “We have great confidence in the American people.” he said “We the citizens have undertaken to bear the cost, and no matter what the cost is, we expect to bear it. “All the expenses connected with raising this fund will be paid by the committee. Every (dollar contributed will go for the legal expenses." Shampoo living room $11.95, bedroom $8.95. Diamond Carpet 366-8226.—Adv.
