and United Intenwtioiii Full Wires MASON CITY IOWA FRIDAY SEPTEMBER 14 neighbors UOa a Paper Consists of Two No 114 Launch attl e to save ond s plan The high cost of TV labor m Educational outlets hit By RICHARD SPONG GlobeGazette Editorial Research Bureau NEW YORK WNDT Chan nel NewYorks new educa tional television station goes on the air Sunday evening WNDT will most certainly be the most ambitious operation in the growing activity of educa tional television Its firstyear operating budget will come to about million about six times as much as say San Francisco spends on its educa tional TV station Itwill tele cast 15 hours a day for five days a week But the big story involves no the magnitude of the operation but a labormanagement dispute that could affect educational TV everywhere The preceden could be set before Sunday eve nings op e n i n g show on WNDT The American Federation Television and Radio Artists AFTRA Tuns a union shop I claims jurisdiction over ievery bocly vrho appearjsrgn aregulat basis When gramming required services of teaichers professors journalists like AFTRA said effect No dough no show You join the union you pay uniondues you get paid scale or better or you dont get in the studio The network succumbed easily The money involved wasnt worth an argument let alone a strike that couid calf out en tertainment stars What seems routine practice for commercial television can be prohibitively expensive for educational TV and that goes for union wages As Samuel B Gould president of the Educa tional Broadcasting Corp owner of WNDT put it Our annual budget of Channel 13 is roughly equivalent to that spent by a major network on programming in one week WNDT is willing to pay union performers union scale Recent ly Zero Mostel star of A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum agreed to tape a humorous lecture on comedy for Channel 13s opening program He was willing to work gratis but the station in sisted on paying scale But AFTRA said in effect if Mostel works for scale everybody works for scale The people who appear on WNDTsdaytime programs will be teachers paid not by the station but by their own school systems And most of the people on the evening programs will not be entertainers except in the unions board definition of the word AFTRA is of course a union which claims nationwide juris diction What goes for WNDT must logically go for educational TV everywhere Indeed it would seem inevitable that college stu dents appearing regularly on collegeowned TV stations would be swept into the AFTRA net Labor relations is WNDTs biggest immediate problem Its biggest lasting one will be in the elegent show biz phrase how to meet the nut In his speech last May Gould said obviously with union problems in mind If we cannot make arrangements in keeping with the very nature of noncommer cial television arrangements that are within the scope of our resources then let us be com pletely frank and admit that only two choices are given us To do an inferior piece of work or to close shop Personally 1 would prefer closing Not the time or place Flirting in the pews ROMFORD England UPI A Church of England vicar said Friday that teenage boys and girls come to his church only to make eyes at each other Im no square the Rev Marcus Nicklin 31 said but I was amaied to find that most of the teenagers were interested only with
