Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - November 5, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa Television Today By Jay Sharhutt — Networks Ready For Elections NEW YORK (AR) - The CBS, NBG and ABC television networks plunge into their all-night election coverage Tuesday night with computers readied, analysts alerted and anchormen and correspondents politically primed. The networks all say their reports will begin at 7 p.m. EST, broadcast live coast to coast. They say they expect the coverage, which preempts all their regular evening programs, to end at around 2 a.m. The Public Broadcasting Service, which serves the nation’s public TV stations, says it plans no election night coverage at all. A total of 504 elections are under TV scrutiny tonight — all 435 house seats, 34 senate races and 35 gubernatorial contests. The networks, each trying to be the first to accurately sort out key winners, major trends and what it all means, will as Usual do much of it from their New York studies, but in differing on-air ways. * * * At CBS’ studio, Walter Cron-kite is anchoring, Erie Se-vareid analyzing and John Hart trend-reporting. There'll also be four “regional” re-porter-interpreters Roger Mudd (South), Dan Rather (Midwest), Lesley Stahl (West) and Mike Wallace (East). At NBC’s studio, John Chancellor and David Brinkley are coachers. House elections are being observed by the “Today” show’s Barbara Walters and Jim Hartz. Edwin Newman is deciphering the senate races and White House correspondent Tom Brokaw the gubernatorial contests. ABC’s studio is almost deserted, comparatively speaking. Howard K. Smith and Harry Reasoner are coanchoring the over-all story, with only Sam Donaldson on hand to elaborate on key house races. The reason the on-air studio crew isn’t larger, says Wally Pfister, in charge of ABC’s coverage, “is that we think Harry and Howard can tell it better in a kind of conversational way, instead of the old ‘and now we switch you to Joe Doaks for the Eastern race’ thing.” ♦ * * While correspondents for all three networks are scattered around the country for “remotes” from the headquarters of key candidates, Pfister says Smith and Reasoner also will do long-distance interviews with some major candidates at the latters’ headquarters tonight. The networks’ trusty computers already are crammed with data ranging from past vote patterns to—CBS’ case— how all house candidates stand on major issues. And as the returns arrive, the computers will help the networks speedily report not only important “projected,” “estimated” or “apparent” winners — the terms will vary at each network *— but also the makeup and possible direction of the congress in 1975 well before midnight. On the visual side, the familiar large walls of studio “tote boards” are no more. At CBS and ABC, Tuesday’s vote displays will be flashed electronically on TV screens, with no wall at all needed. * * * At NBC, they say they’re using a gizmo called a “solari unit”, consisting of seven small screens — two for house races, one each for the senate and gubernatorial races and three for various other data. How much is Tuesday’s coverage and the months of pre-p a r a t i o n costing? ABC’s Pfister says “slightly under $3 million” for his network. His NBC counterpart, Robert Northshield, only will say it will cost his network somewhere between $2 million and $3 million. Their counterpart at CBS, Russ Bensley, says: “We regard that as confidential for competitive reasons and I don’t think I’ll tell you.” Television Listings 9—KCRG-TV, Cedar Rapids 2—WMT-TV, Cedar Rapids 7—KWWL-TV, Waterloo 3—KTVO, Ottumwa 4—WH8F-TV,Rock Islond 6—WOC-TV, Davenport 8—WKBT, La Crosse 10—KROC-TV, Rochester 12—KIIN-TV, Iowa City 13—WHO TV,De* Moines Tuesday Night 6:00 9— Eyewitness News 2—Action News 7—News, Weather, Sot*. 3—News, Weather, Sots. 4—Action News A—A O Clock Edition •—News, Sots., Weather IO—News, Weather, Sots.' 12— Designing Success 13— Eyewitness News 6:30 9-Election 74 2—Election 74 7—Election 74 3—Election 74 4—Election 74 • A—Iowa Football 1—Election 74 IO—Let s Make a Deal 12—Secrets of Deep 13—Let s Make a Deal 7:00 A—Election 74 IO—Election 74 12—America 13-Election 74 7:30 12— Movies— ' Meet Me In St. Louis", "Julius Cooser", "Mutiny on the Bounty" 10:00 9—Eyewitness News .7—News, Weather, Spf« 3—News.

Nagle charged the Grassley for congress campaign with making false and misleading statements in its campaign advertising about Stephen Rapp in Iowa’s Third district congressional race. The complaint said Grassley issued a paid radio advertisement in which Rapp is said to have voted himself a 45 percent pay increase five months after his election to the Iowa legislature that Rapp opposed and Grassley favored property tax relief for widows at age 55 and that Rapp opposed development of Iowa highway 9.
