Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - January 29, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa IO The Cedar Rapids Gazelle: Tues., Jan. 29, 1971 Television loden Bv l^s Brown Radical Financial Plan for PBS NEW YORK (NYT) - The F o r d Foundation has disclosed that it will withdraw its support of public television broadcasting over the next few’ years. It has been one of the non-commercial system’s chief benefactors for more than two decades. The withdrawal has prompted the public television industry to adopt a radical new networking plan. under which the individual stations would pay for the production of national programs and. to a large extent, would determine which shows would be produced. David M. Davis, program officer in charge of public broadcasting for the Ford Foundation, said the organization—which has given more than $150 million to public broadcasting since 1951—had decided upon an “orderly withdrawal” over the next four or five years because it believes the time has come for the industry to stand on its own feet. * * * For several weeks, staff members of the foundation have been drawing up a schedule of terminal grants to public television stations and production centers, which, sources estimate, will amount to $40 million over a period of several years. At an annual meeting of the industry in Washington, public television station operators voted overwhelmingly to establish a “marketplace cooperative” which, in effect, would create a national program schedule by democratic process. The radical aspect of the plan is that most of the national funds for public television will be distributed to the local stations rather than to a central programming source. All excess funds from any increased congressional appropriations—such as the $15 million that had been added this vear—would be distrib uted proportionally among the 220 stations in the system. ♦ * * Those funds, along with the Ford Foundation’s terminal grants, would give the stations buying power for the kinds of national programs each desires. since they would provide the essential financial backing for national productions. John Jay Iselin, president of WNET, Channel 13 in New York, stated that the industry is entering a new era in which “our old welfare mentality is being replaced by a marketplace mentality, a new cycle of buying and selling among ourselves.” Iselin said the new cooperative plan afforded the station manager a number of options with regard to nighttime programs. He may pay a pro-rata sum to receive a national program at night over the public broadcasting system, he may keep the extra funds he receives to produce local programs, or he may invest with a few other stations to buy regionally certain programs that would not be of- 1 fered nationally. * * * Such station consortiums have actually been operating for years.

The bill, one of Gov. Robert Ray’s 44 legislative proposals, would allow the trucks to operate as they had for the last 25 years under “open cities.” concept. The Iowa highway commission currently is under a court injunction to allow trucks up to 60 feet long and twin trailer trucks up to 65 feet to enter border cities to load and unload Iowa law now limits singletrailer trucks to 55 feet in length and twin trailer trucks to 60 feet. A bill to increase the length of all trucks by five feet on four lane highways was passed by the Iowa house last session and is now being stud ied by the Iowa senate state government committee. Ray, however, had indicated he opposes that measure. The Sioux City Stockyards has complained it would lose mil lions of dollars in livestock sales annually if longer trucks from Nebraska and South Dakota are barred from Sioux City. The bill originally would have allowed the trucks to operate under the neighboring state’s weight limitations as well, but that provision was struck under an amendment by Sen. Earl Willits (D-Des Moines). The measure now goes to the senate calendar and will be eli gible for debate next week. The Gazette. Television Listings circular t|!,e gajn? An(j to whom?
