Appleton Post-Crescent (Newspaper) - November 6, 1959, Appleton, Wisconsin CENT VOLLIINo. 14 '28 A, B APPLETON-NEENAH-MENASHA, WIS., FRIDAY, NOVEMBER ASSOCIATED PRESS WIRE SERVICE Price Seven Cents CBS Head Didn't Know About Fixing 4-Inch Snow Until August 1958 SAGE Alert Causes Brief TV Blackout Three television stations serving the Fox Cities and several radio stations in northeastern Wisconsin and Upper Michigan went off the air for about 20 minutes Thursday because of a false Conelrad air raid alert. "Someone goofed" was the explanation given by a spokesman for the 30th di- vision of the Air Defense command SAGE installa- tion in Madison at Truax field. WJPG Affected Capt. Harry Scarborough, information officer for the division, said the "human which occurred at p.m., was detected and corrected wthin 20 minutes and that as far as he knew no interceptor planes were sent up. The alert apparently was sent only to WJPG, Green Bay, Conelrad control sta- tion for northeastern Wis- consin and Upper'Michigan.

Broadcasting System, told house investigators today he .was completely unaware of TV quiz show irregularities before August, 1958, and then acted promptly to throw the offending programs off the air. One program, he said, was cancelled within a week and action taken against three other 'quiz shows within six months of the time he first learned something was wrong. The investigators recessed their investigation of TV quiz show scandals today with word they plan to broaden their inquiry into other phases of television. Chairman Oren Harris said the evidence he has gathered means "the conduct and mor- ality of the whole television i n d t r y has been chal- lenged." He said information which has come to the subcommit- tee indicating that other phases of television beside quiz shows need investigation, and that the subcommittee staff already has started pre- liminary work. As the concluding witness in a house investigation of tele- vision practices and quiz shows, Stanton acknowledged that "in the face of what we know now, we didn't exercise due diligence." "Hindsight is always per- he added. Asserting the TV quiz show scandals "have been a bitter pill for us to Stan- ton declared it is now up to the broadcasting industry it- self to'assume chief responsi- bility for correcting the in- dustry's ills. "We believe that legislation Is no cure-all for these ills and that the primary respon- sibility lies with the broad- casting industry itself. CBS is moving forward in that con- viction." Proposes Legislation Stanton did not go all the way with the position taken yesterday by Robert E. Kint- ner. president of the National Broadcasting company, who advocated enactment of leg- islation making it a federal crime to rig TV quiz pro- grams. Stanton's testimony today also reinforced the CBS poli- cy placed in effect last month banning all big money quiz and giveaway shows from the network.

Supervisors Decline to Use Contingency Funds; Levy Totals BY JACK GLASNER Foit-Crcieent SUM Writer Outagamie county will levy a property tax on Its municipalities next year to finance its operations. The levy is more than that required this year, although the to- tal budget is less than 1959. Main reason for the higher levy despite a lower total budg- et is that supervisors during their 4-day meeting declined to take as much from the county's contingency fund next year as last. In 1959, more than was used to offset the levy, while for 1960 supervis- ors took which was their executive board's rec- omendation.

He told the Associated Press: "I tiad no intention of suggesting that the president actually played golf at that time. If you look in the diaries you'll see there was no accusation that he had any golf clubs and there was no accusation that he was playing golf. You might just as well say that I was accusing Eisenhower of drinking champagne because tie was at Reims." Reims is a center of the French champagne industry. Alanbrooke declined to dis- cuss the implication of his diary entry and whether it gave a misleading impres sion. He said he meant only to refer to the fact that Eisen- hower's headquarters at the time were in the clubhouse of a disused golf course at Reims.
