programs first must pass critical eyes By RICHARD C WALD New York Herald Tribune News Service LONDON No one in Britain reads about American television quiz disclosures as fascinatedly as Harry Norton A heavyset man who retired as a theatrical booking agent two years ago when he was 60 Norton now bears the distinctive title of Scrutineer of Quiz Pro grams for Associated Televi sion He is the man officially re sponsible for preventing hanky panky in the question box AS EXEMPLIFIED on Dot to a show imported from America it mainly insures that the contestants dont meet the producer the producer doesnt see the questions and the quiz master doesnt see anything un til just before the program ev ery Thursday evening Emphasis has been put on this because Britain has not been without its own doubts about tel evision quizzes Britain has only two television channels BBC which is govern ment owned and noncommer and ITV standing for In dependent Television time on which is farmed out among a number of commercial compan ies The commercial companies are the ones with the big money quizzes Last winter there was a great hullabaloo over allega tions that contestants had got ten answers in

soared as a possible Republican April the Independent Televisionlticket in the November election Authority which controls ITV laid down the law that every commercial television firm had to have a scrutineer of quizzes It also ruled that before a quiz could go on the air it had to sub mit a complete outline of the rules method of selecting connominee testants and security procedures used Suddenly illuminated by the political spotlight Mitchell told questioners I dont know and I dont care whether the wage pact he announced Monday en hanced his chance of becoming the GOPs vice presidential The stock market spurted and officials issued bolder forecasts AS A SPOKESMAN for the ITA put it We have 10 televi sion companies and there were doubts We dont like doubts ATV in the solid person of Norton was one of the firms that already had a scrutineer He had been used on the 64000 Question another American import with the word dollar left out because here they have 64000 shillings or 58910 which still isnt hay and the 64000 Challenge His procedure for Dotto a game in which one is supposed to guess the identity of a face outlined in dots is simple The first thing he said is that the Encyclopedia Brittanica people who drew up the 72 ques tions we use for each show send them to me by registered mail in a sealed envelope I always have 10 envelopes of questions and I keep them in a safe at the studio Contestants are picked by our feature editor She chooses them for all the shows after an interview and the employes of the show never know who they are WE SEE THE contestants for the first time just before the show about 5 p m Then we have a rehearsal just to r u n through the rules ask some sample questions which we then throw away and give the tech nicians a chance to adjust the microphones and the cameras Ten minutes before the show starts at 8 p m I open the safe and bring out the 10 envelopes The producer picks one at ran dom He also picks a selection of five quiz pictures from a group of 30 I put the unusec ones back in the safe and keep my eye on the producer all the time Seven minutes before the program starts he is allowed to show them to the quiz master who looks over foreign words or strange terms All this time the conteslants are in a differen dont let them see the producer or t h e quiz master Then the show goes on The interview was conducted with a press agent present l scrutinize the scrutineer W are very careful about our qui programs the press agen said of I960 prosperity as the settle ment engineered secretly by the crank up

7cent hourly wage boosts taking effect in late 1960 and late 1961 The industry gave up its de mand for the sole right to change work rules McDonald rradbrandecHhis a union busting device The issue will be studied by a joint committee whose findings will not be binding The union won sizable pension improvements and a limitec orm of costofliving wage esca ation The companies will pay he whole cost of medical and lospitai insurance previously shared by workers and employ ers THE COMPANIES swallowed this package reluctantly Mitch ell said he and Nixon in per iaps a dozen meetings over the past month won their assent by paintinga very pic ure of the alternatives Because Nixon and Mitchell made the proposals finally ac cepted by the steel companies and the unions Democrats are certain to
