Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - July 30, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa ]Q The Cedar Rapids Gazette: Tues., July 30, 1071    ^ OIH vision Bv Jav Sharbutt Rattle of Chains' in Nixon Deeds (Continued from Page I.) Pres- Confusion Over Bill President, hut future idents,” McClory said. “Inconsistent” NEW YORK (AP) - The White House denied in .June reports President Nixon had rejected a proposed long-range financing bill for public broadcasting. But a key advisor who sent him the bill says Nixon did turn it down, if only temporarily. He’s Dr. Clay T. Whitehead, who was instrumental in persuading Nixon, through Gen. Alexander Haig, jr., the President’s top aide, to send the measure intact to congress this month. But Whitehead, chief of the White House office of telecommunications policy nearly four years, admits he was startled when he learned of Nixon’s initial decision. He said it consisted only of “a short notification that he had not approved the bill. And it didn't make any sense in view? of the previous involvement he’s had in the public broadcasting matter.” He referred to administration efforts to decentralize public broadcasting and emphasize more of a ‘‘grassroots” approach. * * * Hie bill, aimed at insulating public broadcasters from undue government pressure and the vagaries of annual funding, would provide up to $400 million over a five-year period but on a matching basis of $1 for every $2.50 the broadcasters raised from nonfederal sources. Whitehead said its initial rejection was puzzling because it previously had support from Nixon, who ‘ knew what we were doing, why we were doing it and that public broadcasting had changed markedly. . . . ‘‘The bill we were able to work out with them (public broadcasters) reflected a lot of his concerns and would have reduced the danger that this could turn into a govern ment-funded television network.” He said it made certain that local stations had a strong role in national public broad casting and that it generally “was very consistent with the ‘New Federalism’ approach Mr. Nixon has advocated for so many years.” * * * Whitehead, who said Nixon's initial decision c a rn e without elaboration, said he argued the case for the bill with Haig, but not with the President personally. He said he later received a White House memo that said, “The President has approved your proposal." He said it also was without elaboration, but that he hasn’t tried to learn the whys of the reversal. He said that now' that White House debate on the bill has ended, he thinks the measure stands a good chance of passage, even though it has unique provisions congress rarely sees in a financing bill. It combines both authorization for spending and appropriation of the funds in the same document, he said. The two steps usually are voted on separately by the congress. He predicted strong opposition from two quarters on the bill. * * * “One will be the house ways and means committee, which traditionally doesn’t like mul-t i y e a r appropriations,” he said. “The other opposition will come from a substantial number of people in the congress who enjoy the influence annual appropriations give them.” He said he and his office have “borne the brunt of an awful lot of congressional sniping over the past couple of years from people who say we didn’t want to come up with a long-range financing or we like the kind of influence over public broadcasting that the year-to-year uncertainties provided. Republican, hold Nixon responsible for the misdeeds of others. But McClory, citing the score of former White House and Nixon re-election campaign officials either in prison or under indictment, said Nixon could not escape responsibility. “A President can onlv act Television Listings 2—WMT-TV, Cedar Rapids 7—KWWL-TV, Waterloo 9—KCRG-TV, Cedar Rapidi 3—KTVO, Ottumwa 4—WHBF-TV, Rock Island 6—WOC-TV, Davenport 8—WKBT, la Crosse IO—KROC-TV, Rochester 12—KIIN-TV, Iowa City 13—WHO-TV, De* Moines 40—KDUB, Dubuque Tuesday Night 6:00 2—Action News 7—News, Weather, Sot*. 9—Eyewitness News 3—News, Weather, Spts, 4— News, weather, Sots. 6—6 O'Clock Edition 8—News, Sots , Weather IO—News, Weather, Sots. 12—To Be Announced 13—Eyewitness News 40—Newsline 6:30 2—To Tell Truth 7—Community Quiz 9—Andv Griffith 3—Hawkeye Futurity Preview 4—Hee-Haw 6— Emergency 8—Bobby Goldsboro IO—Police Surgeon 12—Audubon Wildlife 13—Let s Woke a Deal 40—Celebrity Bowl 7:00 2—Maude 7—Adam 12 9—Hodov Days 3—Happy Dos 8—Maude IO—Adam 12 12—Man Builds, Man Destroys 13—Adam 12 40—Happy Days 7:30 2—Hawaii Five-0 7—Mystery Movie 9—ABC Movie— "Gun and Pulpit' 3—ABC Movie— "Gun and Pulpit" 4—Hawaii Five-0 6—Mystery Movie 8—Hawaii Five-0 10—Mystery Movie 12—Eye to Eye 13—Mystery Movie . 40—ABC Movie— "Gun and Pulpit" 8:00 12- Big idea 8:30 2—CBS Movies— "Friends and Lovers", "Dominic's Dream", "Fess Parker" 4—CBS Movies — "Friends and Lovers".

Mama Cass Dies, Expert Doubts Natural Causes LONDON (AP) - Britain’s top pathologist said after an autopsy Tuesday that further tests would be needed to determine how “Mama” Cass Elliot, thc sweet-voiced 238-pound pop singer, died. Prof. Keith Simpson gave no details of his examination, but I said she did not appear to have died from natural causes. He I did not elaborate. Police said an inquest will be held at Westminster coroner’s court Wednesday. Simpson’s statement came only hours after the singer’s doctor, Anthony Greenhurg. told newsmen: “I think the postmortem will probably show that she died as a result of choking on a sandwich while lying in bed ...    * “She was a very big lady and I could not rule out the possibility of a heart attack.” Dot MacLeod, the singer’s secretary, said she found the 33-year-old star’s body Monday slightly propped up in her double bed in the six-room apartment she was occupying during engagements in Britain. The television set was on. and a ham sandwich and a soft drink were beside her pillow, Miss Macl/ood said.

She was preparing to start a tour of Britain. Change Stolen HAZLETON - T h i e v e s escaped with an estimated $695, mostly in change, following a breakin early Monday at Denny’s Chug-A-Mug here.
