Ward's Inspection Permit Suspended
NL VV YORK (AF) - You may be a bit pooped at the (Mid of (ho Labor day weekend, but (ako a look Monday night at ABC News’ “Clo.se-Up” which dwells on the programs the three networks offer viewers every night of tho year.
The hour-long show, covering only entertainment programs, studies how and why they're aired, and the effect ratings, advertisers, various critics and the much-publicized annual senate hear ings run by Sen. .John Pasture (D-R.I.) have on the direction these shows take.
Called “Prime Time TV: The Decision Makers”, its a fair over-all look at a much-belabored subject. Ifs worth watching if only to learn more about various pressures shaping the networks’ evening schedules.
Alas, it is as hard-hitting as a wet noodle.
N o startling revelations emerge, the pesky issue of reruns never is raised and the show s explanation of the controversial A. C. Nielsen rat-igs system — the heart of television life — is skimpier than the string bikini.
The biggest gripe I have about the show is that virtually all of it centers on the New York establishment, with wellknown worthies here emitting the same criticism or words of defense they’ve made to print reporters for years.
The hinterlands, as some call any place ouside Manhattan. are barely represented.
The general managers of stations WFAA in Dallas and WZZM in Grand Rapids, Mich., check in, as do Richard Shull and Anthony LaCamera, TV critics for the Indianapolis News and the Boston Herald American.
♦ * *
But that’s it.. And no average viewers are given a say. which easily could have
been worked in had ABI; excised from the show what amounts lo a self-serving corporale defense lur .showing I he movie, “Fuzz’’.
I d love lo see what’d happen if a network bent on examining its navel and those of its competitors had it done by an affiliate with a good news operation — say, WCCO in Minneapolis or KUTV in Salt Lake City.
The idea simply would he to examine network television with a non-New York perspective. I know the sun will rise in the west before this happens, but the change could prove highly beneficial.
Ah, well, check out ABC’s show Monday night anyway. It has its share of flaws, but at least it offers a taste of what goes on along Broadcast Row', goings-on network TV news specials rarely examine.
And what this “Closeup” segment omits or skips over might even provoke a harder try by the two other networks.

In other Labor day weekend viewing matters, comedian Jerry Lewis’ annual Muscular Dystrophy telethon kicks off from Las Vegas. Nev., .Sunday at 8:30 pm CHT. Itll continue until 5:30 p.m. Monday.
The show', featuring over 160 stars, also will come from Nashville and New York, and be broadcast by 174 stations, according to telethon officials. They say last year’s show raised more than $13.5 million — of which 15 percent went for expenses — for muscular dystrophy research.
No Negotiation With Kidnapers
GUADALAJARA, Mexico (AP) — The government said Thursday that it will not negotiate with the kidnapers of the 83-year-old father-in-law of Mexico's president because it “does not make deals with criminals.’’

Mrs. Kucera also called for increased coordination among all grades in the school system and obtaining “the greatest return on the educational tax dollar.”
