Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - February 19, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa JO The Cedar Rapids Gazette: Tues.. Feb. 19. 1974 Bv .Fay Sharbutt Cites EEC Bars to Feedgrain Exports Pay-PBS Proposal By Al Swegle A Cargill. Inc NEW YORK (AP) - By early April, the board of the Public Broadcasting Service expects to vote on a proposal to radically alter the way the nation’s 240 public TV stations get national programs. The proposal, made \Vz years ago by PBS president ilartford N. Gunn, jr.. would partly abolish — the qualification is important — PBS’ current practice of feeding national programs free to its stations. It’s already been approved in principle by the board and the stations, Gunn says, and will be explained in detail to station officials in a series of meetings next month prior to the final vote. * * * Essentially, t h e proposal would make stations pay a percentage of the cost of some, but not all, the national shows they’d air. Under the plan, the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. which administers federal funds for public broadcasting, would finance nationally-broadcast programs for no more than two years. Current programs such as “Sesame Street’’ or "Firing Line”, would be directly affected by the proposal. lf stations wanted to continue those and new programs beyond CPB's two-year limit, they’d have to pay for them with their own money, be it from federal, foundation, local or private sources. That’s where the national “auction” system comes in. Gunn says PBS would prepare a list of programs for which CPB’s fiscal clock has expired. The list would estimate the cost each station would have to pay for each program if all stations bought it. * * * The stations then would tell PBS which programs they’d buy. The information would go into a computer, which then would base the per-sta-tion cost of the program on how many (stations were willing to buy it. The net result would be the more stations willing to pay for the series, the lower its cost to them, and vice versa. Henry Loomis, CPB president, says there are two basic reasons for the proposed system. One is to encourage greater programming initiative and local financial support in local public broadcasting. The other is financial. The Ford Foundation, public TV’s biggest friend in the private sector, has put about $250 million into public TY since 1951, but plans to phase out its support in four or five years. * * * Although proposals are afoot to authorize a five-year plan of federal spending for public broadeacting, CPB still won’t have enough in the till to continue paying for both existing programs and the development of new ones. "That is clearly an intolerable situation, so we're going to divest ourselves entirely of funding continuing series,” he said, referring to CPB-sup-ported shows that last beyond two years,.

Seminary Seeks Staff After Dismissal of 40 ST. LOUIS (AP) Concordia Lutheran seminary board of control has moved to rebuild its faculty in the wake of dismissal of 40 striking faculty members in a dispute that threatens to split the Lutheran Church — Missouri Synod. After a lengthy campus meet mg Monday night prompted by the dismissals earlier in the day, the board said seven new men had been appointed to the by the board for the faculty members’ answer to an ultimatum that they return to class or he fired. “The group decided not to send any reply,” Dr. Robert Bertram, a spokesman for the faculty majority, said, “There are lots of people who say a split in the synod is guaranteed Others say our action will prevent a split.” .    ,    ...    |    •    .    (j    Since    Dr Tietjen was sus- facultv and a preliminary list of ...    :    -4U    n ‘.it    a    pended    in connection with alle- 33 guest lecturers !,n« mqtrnr-ir tors was set up. and instruc i ..    .. .    .    .

The senate earlier voted to remove the sales tax from most staple food items, prescription drugs and artificial human body parts. But the house last week expended the definition of food to include anything covered by ‘federal food stamps, including such items as soda pops and cookies, and added heating fuels to the exemptions. Lamborn predicted that the joint house-senate conference committee would eventually work out what items would be exempt. The senate version is estimated to cost the state $31 million annually, while officials fee that the house version with the added items would cost $45 mil-! lion a year.
