Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - November 5, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa Television Today By Jny Sharbull __ Networks Ready For Elections NEW YORK (AP) The CBS, NBC and ABC television networks plunge into their all- night election coverage Tues- day night with computers rea- died, analysts alerted and an- chormen and correspondents politically primed. The networks all say their reports will begin at 7 p.m. EST, broadcast live coast to coast. They say they expect the coverage, which pre- empts all their regular eve- ning programs, to end at around 2 a.m. The Public Broadcasting Service, which serves the na- lion's public TV stations, says it plans no election night cov- erage at all. A total of 504 elections are under TV scrutiny tonight all 435 house seats, 34 senate races and 35 gubernatorial contests. The networks, each trying to be ths first to accurately sort out key winners, major trends and what it all means, will as usual do much of it from their New York studies, but in differing on-air ways. At CBS' studio, Walter Cron- kite is anchoring, Eric Se- vareid analyzing and John Hart trend-reporting. There'll also be four "regional" re- porter-interpreters Roger Mudd Dan Rather Lesley Stahl (West) and Alike Wallace At NBC's studio, John Chan- cellor and David Brinkley are coachers. House elections 'are being observed by the "To- day" show's Barbara Walters and Jim. Hartz. Edwin New- man is deciphering the senate races and White House corre- spondent Tom Brokaw the gu- bernatorial contests. ABC's studio is almost de- serted, comparatively speak- ing. Howard K. Smith and .Harry Reasoncr are coanchor- mg the over-all story, with only Sam Donaldson on hand to elaborate on key house races. The reason the on-air studio crew isn't larger, says Wally Pfistcr, In charge of ABC's coverage, "is that we think Harry and Howard can tell it belter in a kind of conversa- tional way, instead of the old 'and now we switch you to Joe Doaks for the Eastern race' thing." While correspondents for all three networks are scattered around the country for "re- motes" from the headquarters of key candidates, Pfister says Smith and Reasoner also will do long-distance inter- views with some major can- didates at the latters' head- quarters tonight. The networks' trusty com- puters already are crammed with data ranging from past vole patterns case- how all house candidates stand on major issues. And as the returns arrive, the computers will help the networks speedily report not only important "estimated" or "apparent" winners the terms will vary at each network but also the makeup and possible di- rection of the congress in 1975 well before midnight. On the visual side, the fa- miliar large walls of studio "tote boards" are no more. At CBS and ABC, Tuesday's vote displays will be flashed elec- tronically on TV screens, with no wall at all needed. At NBC, they say they're using a gizmo called a "solari consisting of seven small screens two for house races, one each for the senate and gubernatorial races and three for various other data. How much is Tuesday's cov- erage and the months of prc- paration costing? ABC's Pfister says "slightly under million" for his network. His NBC counterpart, Robert Norlhshield, only will say it will cost his network some- where between million and million. Their counterpart- at CBS, Russ Bensley, says: "We re- gard that as confidential for competitive reasons and I don't think I'll tell you."

'Grocery prices increased again, but at a slower rale than before. Sales on meat and CL_ helped cut tho bill and there were indications that the price of sugar which has soared percent in the last year may be leveling off. The Associated Press drew up a random list of 15 commonly purchased food and nonfood items, checked the prices on d by Sugar Price Booste Russian Buy NEW YORK (AP) The So- viet Union's purchase of tons of raw sugar has sent world sugar futures soaring ifrom ihe 48.97-cents-a-pound price in the March delivery to a record 50 Vz cents. The Russian purchase Monday from the Philippines came on the first day of a new Itwo-cents- a-day limit ton Ihe increase per pound in the price of sugar. Analysts say the Arab jnalions have been buying lup more sugar than they could use and specu- lating in the futures, because consuming nations have been pinched by short supplies. The analysts say the Russians could similarly be buying to drive the price up and increase their profit. However, other in- dustry observers say the Rus- sians may have sold too much sugar to tlie Soviet satellite na- tions and may have run short. The competition among the consuming nations for sugar has driven the per pound price up 20 cents during the last six weeks. Many traders have been sur- prised by the sharp jump. A German trade house has report- edly Jost million on its short position, partially because the price surge made it difficult for the trader to get 'additional fi- nancing.

Up in Seven The latest check showed that during October, the bill for the marketbasket went up in seven cities, down in four and was unchanged in two. On the average, the bill at the start ol November was 0.7 percenl higher than it was at the begin- ning of October and 13 percenl more.than at the start of the year. During September, AP survey showed the bill was up in 11 cities and down in only Iwo, with an average increase of 2.3 percent. The biggest savings in the lat- est AP survey came at the meat counter. Farmers who say they cannot afford the high cost of feed grain have been selling their livestock, temporarily in- creasing supply and lowering prices. The price of a pound of chopped chuck was down in five of the cities checked, unchanged in four and up in four, with decreases generally averaginj about 10 cents a pound. Less Sleep Sugar prices were up again in nine cities. The price went down in two cities Albuquerque, N. M., and Dallas and was un- changed in two. The increases, however, were less steep than in previous months when the price of five pounds of granulated sugar soared from about 65 cents to about The rising prices and reports of soaring profits for sugar com- panies have spurred demands for government investigations, and the justice department said last week that the sugar dustry was one of several food industries that will be inves- tigated for evidence of possible price fixing. Items temporarily out of slock on one of the survey dales being compared were not included in the over-all totals. The AP did not attempt to area than another. The only comparisons made terms of percentages saying a particular item went up 10 former percent in one city and. 6 per- cent in another, for example.

Police said the bomb, in 'a plain cardboard box, exploded when it was moved by the vic- tim, Larry Anslett, 15, a car- rier for the Milwaukee Sentinel. Authorities said he apparently became curious when he saw the box atop the late model car at the curb as he made his de- liveries around a.m. The bomb was placed on the car some time during the night, police said. The incident occurred outside the home of R. K. Vermilyea, and the car was owned by Ver- milyea's son, Michael, member of a motorcycle club known as Heaven's Devils. Police said the family had complained 'several times in re- cent months about harassment from members of another mo- torcycle group, the Outlaws. Vermilyea said his son recent- ly testified in court against a member of tho rival club charged With robbery. The fath- er said a window in the home was recently shot out, and there were reports last summer of fire bombings and gunfire at several other area homes. "We heard the explosion and my son went out to look while I called the said Ver- milyea. "He came running back in 'and said there was a body next to the car." The top of the auto was blown away.

MOSCOW (AP) A Lithu- anian pallor, who tried to defect to an American slu'p four years ago but was returned to a Rus- sian ship captain was reported to have left Tuesday for the U.S. A U.S. embassy spokesman said "no comment" when asked to confirm the report from a friend of Simas Kudirka. The embassy would bo involved be- cause congress made Kudirka an American citizen after it was discovered his mother was jorn in Brooklyn. Kudirka was freed from a Soviet prison last August, lie had been serving a 10-year treason sentence for jumping iboard a U.S. coast giiitrd cut- .er at sea in November, 1970.
