The long anticipated trip, designed to maintain warming relations with Peking, will follow a minisuinmit in Vladivostok, Russia, between President Ford and Soviet leader Leonid Brezhnev. The announcement was made as Ford and Kissinger met to prepare Ford for his upcoming trip to the Far East. Ford said Kissinger returned from his 17-nation trip with “very encouraging news.” Ford and Kissinger discussed the secretary’s lR-day trip for three hours Sunday at Camp David, Md. They plan to confer about two hours each day this week in preparation for Ford’s Far East visit. The President and Kissinger depart for the Far East next Sunday. Ford said he was “looking forward to a constructive trip to Japan, South Korea and to the Soviet Union.” Encouraging News Standing on the White House lawn with Kissinger after flying back from Camp David, Ford said the secretary of state brought back from the Middle East “some encouraging news” and that Kissinger’s meeting with Soviet leader Leonid Brezhnev “was very helpful.” Kissinger returned to Wash- Cover-Up Jury Hears June 23 Nixon Tape WASHINGTON (AP) — The the transcript seen by the jury, jury in the Watergate cover-up The word spoken by Hal-trial, listening to a June 23, deman is allegedly “Gem-j 1972, White House tape, Monday j stone,” the code name for the heard defendant ll.

From this vantage point, however, one can discern .some dark clouds. By Marilyn Beck On the surface, all is sunshine — network financial statements aglow with figures of top gross income for Hie last fiscal year. But in the penetralia of television executive circles, s t o r rn clouds hover. Those who chart the course of home entertainment know dark days are upon the hori zon •— which will force a drastic readjustment in the quality of program being fed the public. The television industry doesn’t like to talk about it, but it is crashing head-on into crisis. National economic ills are already beginning to have their effect on TV industry. According to some in the know, those effects must grow more acute in upcoming months. “The not works are beginning to panic,” reveals John Mitchell, President of Columbia Pictures-TV. “As business goes from bad to worse around the country, major advertisers — like the automobile firms — are slashing their TV adver tising budgets. I understand the networks are already discounting commercial time for the January season — and they’re passing on tin* pressure lo us ” Mitchell's firm is one of some 14 companies that provide product to networks—and which are under attack right now to cut down costs. NBG President Robert Howard admits he’s had meetings with most of the major production firms, to stress the seriousness of the problem “and to make it clear that his network will In? looking in the months ahead, “For greater efficiency, greater value in what we pay fur.” As far as tile studios are con cerned, keeping costs down is easier suggested than done. In this time of spiraling inflation, the cost of producing a prime-time series is up 20 percent from 1969 — with every indication that costs will rise another 15 percent within the next few years. Many studio heads feel the only alternative left is to change the direction of the products they’re making. “We're reaching a jxnnt,’’ says Mitchell, “where we can't afford to make a dramatic show like 'Police Story* — and the networks can’t afford to buy it. They’re already running about HO days late in payments — and I can’t see any signs that the situation will improve. I tell you. I wake up during the night in a cold sweat, worrying how we're going to be able to overcome these money problems.” As tile tight money problem grows more severe, a switch in programming emphasis is already making itself apparent in the network’s announcements of variety shows that will flood the tube next year. Not only can such shows be taped (“Because tape is so much more economical to edit, we expect to bt* switching more of our shows to tape,” says NBC’s Bob Howard) —-they can also be produced at a fraction of the cost of a dramatic show. The December-debuting Mac* Davis variety show will fill up an hour of prime time at the approximate cost of $125,000. An hour-long “Kojak” episode costs in the neighborhood of $240,000. The budget for a 90-minute television movie has spiraled to $425,000 •— and has become such a losing proposition that many industry insiders predict it will become a forgotten video art form. MGM-TV Vice-president Fd-ward Montanus echoes the concern of his industry colleagues when he refers to television as an “economically sick industry. Rising costs, the mortality rate of TV shows, and the drying up of the foreign market, la* feels, have (Continued: Page 2, Col. I.) PITTSBURGH (AP) - The steel industry, holstered by a no-strike agreement with steelworkers and headed toward record profits through the first three quarters of 1974, faces a major threat from the impending coal strike. The consensus of industry analysts was that if the strike lasts more than two weeks, layoffs of thousands of steelworkers will begin and production will be curtailed significantly. Even if a tentative agreement is reached, rank-and file members must approve it before the strike ends under the union’s no contract-no work Ira clition.
