At Issue is a polling service called which lists performers according to their popularity. On a recent listing Lucille Ball was first with 98 per cent familiarity Johnny Cash and Bill Cosby tied for second with 98, and Doris Day Fred Macmurray and Dick Van Dyke had 95. The screen actors Guild has heard reports that performers who place far Down the list or not at All have been turned Down for rivalry in Energy dwindling by g. David Wallace associated press writer Washington a a Federal Trade commission staff study said tuesday that Energy production is apparently no More monopolistic than any other Industry but Competition is dwindling. The study said one Federal Agency should Monitor the situation by gathering information on the reserves of Oil natural Gas Coal and uranium and verifying the reports independently. Petroleum company acquisitions of Coal and uranium companies should be reviewed by the government As the mergers occur the study said. The study by the commission Bureau of economics is the second phase of a congressionally ordered probe into the trend toward diversification by companies into the four sources of Energy. The latest study concluded that a a production concentration in a National Energy Market appears to be quite moderate especially compared to Many other industries. On the other hand Energy concentration Rose significantly Between 1955 and 1970.�?� the report was Milder than the report on the Petroleum Industry alone prepared by the commissions Bureau of Competition just before the commission launched a Case aimed at breaking up the nations eight largest Oil companies. The report found that measuring production of All four fuels on a Dollar basis for 1970 showed the top four companies control 23 per cent of production the top eight 38 per cent and the top Twenty 57 per cent. The same figures for 1955 were top four 16 per cent of production the top eight 27 per cent and the top Twenty 43 per cent.

Was the top ranking uranium producer in addition to ranking 23rd in Oil production and 24th in natural Gas. Roles in to movies and series pilots. A the Guild frowns on this a said president Dennis Weaver. A a such a system does no to make sense and to my Way of thinking its unworkable. Some of the top actors around Arentt even on the list a performer has to be put on it by the clients of Weaver said that Guild members believe use of tvs to be widespread in the Industry. The networks deny this. A lbs programming executive said he was scarcely aware of tvs a a existence a and i doubt that it is an element in lbs does not subscribe to tvs. Abc and Abc do. Barry Diller abcs vice president in charge of prime time television commented a a in a amazed at How these things get blown up. To utilize tvs to cast individual actors on a negative basis would be foolish. We done to do it. A a tvs does have a positive value. If you see someone in a subsidiary role on a series whose popularity is larger than it normally would be you might say lets find something for him next but i Don t think anyone rejects an actor because of a Larry White vice president of programming for Abc commented a a tvs along with Many other sources of information is very useful in making decisions but it is not a determining Factor. We try to cast by using the Best possible tvs is a service of a new York firm. Marketing evaluations inc., which has been surveying popularity of to programs and performers since 1958. Once a year two panels of 1,000 families Are asked whom they recognize from 250 names and How Well they like the performers. Said company president Herbert Altman a we Start with a Basic list of too names of people like Bob Hope who have been around for a Long time. Each client can add a designated number of names until we have a total of about 500.�?� Altman defended the use of tvs a the economics of television and movies Are obvious millions of dollars Are invested in projects which must please the Public. The name of the game is pleasing the Public and an important ingredient is the performer. A a tvs provides the executive with certain tools to help him make his decision. That decision must also be combined with his intuition experience Etc. We re in the business of offering information we re not making the screen actors Guild first became concerned with tvs when actor Nico Minardos reported that he had been turned Down for a role in a to drama because he lacked recognition in the tvs Survey.
