Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - April 12, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa 8 Tile Cedar Rapids Gazette: Tri., April 12, 197 Television loden '-AP Report Erroneous on Revival of Farm Subsidies They'll Do It Every Time Bv Jav Sharbutt PT This and That NEW YORK (API - Young and old baseball fans probably still are boasting they saw Hank Aaron make baseball history on TV. NBG estimates 35 million of them watched one of the greatest moments in sports live. But at least one viewer, a professional viewer by trade, can't honestly tell his grandchildren someday he saw Babe Ruth’s record broken the moment it happened right there on national television. The viewer’s set was on, but he was off. Lulled by a hearty dinner and the pre-game hoopla, he was deep in slumber by the third inning on the fateful night of April 8. 1974. While he snored, a nation united in excitement and suspense was glued to TV screens from Flatbush to Beverly Hills. Commercials costing $40,000 a minute flashed on and off and still he snored. When Aaron stepped up in the fourth inning and belted his 715th homer into history, the viewer was still snoring. Not even the roar from the TV set or the tavern down the street prevailed. * * * When the viewer finally was abruptly awakened by a nightmare about a tax audit, he saw empty stands at the Atlanta stadium on KBC. Was it rained out? he asked his wife. No, she said as gently as possible. So many years from now, when the viewer’s grandchildren say, “Grandpa, did you see the home run,’’ he’ll also try to answer as gently as possible. “I saw four reruns of it on the ll o'clock news,” 1 11 tell DST, when Aaron broke Ruth's record. * * * But the half-hour only was the peak viewing period. NBC says on an over-all basis, the three-hour game was seen only in about 14.8 million homes. Still, a spokesman says “that's the highest we’ve ever gotten for a regularly-scheduled game. WASHINGTON (AP) - The Associated Press erroneously reported Tuesday that a federal conservation subsidy program has been revived to pay farmers ! for land improvement projects they carried out in 1973. That will not be the case. The agriculture department said Wednesday the 1973 program was reopened but that it will however, said the full $225.5 million set by congress would be made available. Smith, in an interview, said if a farmer had applied for 1973 benefits and tbe application was approved by his county ASCS office by Dec. 22, 1972, he would have been eligible for compensation. But if a farmer had not been AAV BROTHER-IN-LAW DOES MY INCOME TAX' MESA CRA."'WHY? IS /THE GUY I GOT, OSE!?

It’s called “What’s Impeachment All About” and it’s a good effort, considering its intended audience. It aims at defining both the process of impeachment and the complicated issues in the possible impeachment of President Nixon. Some parents may object to one very brief excerpt in which an auto worker says, “Our President is a damn crook and we all know it.” But that’s immediately followed by the President's own rebuttal. * * * Ifs strong material,, but worth viewing, even by grown-ups who feel they’ve already been told more about impeachment than they care to know.
