"The briefest description of our function is censorship, I Watson said in an interview. "That's why Shelly Berman once called us the Taste Mongers." Specifically, there was a script in which Gentleman Johnny Burgoyne was to open milady's chamber door from the inside and call for more wine. Gentleman Johnny was purportedly talking about the conquest of the revolting colo- nies. But since he was in a boudoir at the time, the con- quest implied was much more personal and rather more im- mediate. Only the public did not get to see it. Carl Watson said "No." "The scene in'question was so rowdy and broadly played that we felt the need to make sizable Watson said. "Our .department has tried to play a quiet persuasive role and to solve problems before they arise. We try to avoid a pronouncement by going to the producer or the agency with a counter-proposal." PLAYED IN FARCE By the time Hap Watson had achieved this viewpoint he was quite a few innings away from the Devon Tigers, which he had helped organize; quite a few terms from University of New Brunswick, where he graduated in 1933; and quite a few 16-hour days from station CFNB in Fredericton. There tie once played opposite the late Mary Grannan of Maggie Muggins fame in a weekly farce titled. Aggravatin' Agatha. Carl Watson arrived in New York City on Labor Day, 1937, He applied to 27 radio stations in the area and, after numer- ous auditions, landed with Voice of Wood- side." This little station broadcast in German to the Yorkville district, in Polish to large groups-in the Brooklyn area, and in English in any otherwise unfilled time. This made Hap the entire English- speaking staff from 6 p.m. daily until midnight, STARTED AS PAGE He started on the page staff of NBC at a month oh May 1, 1938. "After six months on.the hard floor of the main hair in the RCA Building, I advanced to guide and, after what seem- ed another lifetime, I went to the music division of the inter- national department, which was broadcasting to Europe Independent volume-controls.on each earcup let you balance the sound without.leaving your chair.

NOT TO RAISE A PRICE al least through to June 1975 in these stores. In addition we will continue uur tradition of pei'rodic PRICE REDUCTIONS lo make Radio Shack products iiven mon; affordable. By holding the line against incieaseswe help not only our customers but also our suppliers and our employees, ac- tually thousands ol people. It is our way of saying THANKS 10 you and them. And it's our way of saying to the country as a whole: we can and must fight inflation. This applies to all 231 company owned and operated sto- res in Canada. and South America in nine languages. "In a short time I became chief of the music division and here I inaugurated the English-language broadcasts over the 14 transmitters we. were then servicing. By 19411 was co-ordinator of the Eng- lish department with 12 people on staff. As the service grew, we found ourselves directly concerned with the state department, the U.S. Army, the U.S. Nayy and the Office of War Information, beaming programs to troops overseas and so forth." In April of 1943 Watson was asked to take an assignment in Ottawa. On loan from NBC for nine months, he acted as liaison between Canada's Wartime Information Board (WIB) and the CBC, and also made special studies for na- tional food conservation, the scrap metal drive and similar projects. Under Davidson Dunton, then of WIB, Peter Aylen of CBC, and in conjunction with the department of external af- fairs, Watson helped to form the Canadian political war- fare committee. The com- mittee was concerned with general policy and the pos- sible use of prisoners in politi- cal warfare. Watson rejoined NBC on Feb. 3, 1944, and was named director of continuity accept- ance in 1960. The name was changed to broadcast stand- ards the following year. In his present post Watson has been processing around com- mercials a month in story- board and script form as well as on final tape or film ready for airing. Among advertising agen- cies, NBC is regarded as the toughest network on com- mercials. In fact, the NBC Standards for Broadcast Ad- vertising is the only handbook on acceptability issued by any network. An example of the NBC at- tention to its own code was a toy commercial that had to be vetoed. "This had nothing to do with the Watson recalled, "but on account of the presentation. It used a shoot out, which we thought conducive to violence." Just what this vigilante of the airwaves will do when he ceases guarding the public semsibilities is not known. "I am keeping my home in Great Neck, Long Watson said. "Its a great place to watch television." TV highlights WEDNESDAY VARIETY: Tony Orlando and Dawn, 6 p.m., Ch. 9.
