Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 29, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta TV Has Power Over Public Says NBC Vice-President By JOAN BOWMAN Hci-alrt Staff Writer A vice-president of the U.S. National Broadcasting poration's radio division Cor- sug- gested Saturday that television has fo stored the habit of in- stant reaction and the hope of instant results on political is- sues. Marion Stephenson, NBC's only woman vice-president, was the main speaker in Great Galls, Montana, at the three- day western area conference oi American Women in Radio and Television. The conference was attended by about 80 delegates from nine states. Miss Stephenson quoted U.S. historian Arthur Schlesinger Jr. as saying, "America has been the first to experience the shock and disruptive intensity of accelerated change made public and personal by electronic communications sys- tems. She said history had indi- cated "a few articulate per- sons seem always to havs the ability to attract groups that unquestioningly follow hi their footsteps and sanction ac- tions that strain and imperil relationships on local, national or global levels and too often involve militant confrontations or deadly solutions. "Unfortunately, in recent times, our (broadcasting) industry has been the means of providing the necessary com- munications and organizing links." She quoted a British TV com- mentator who pondered the ef- fect of fullscale coverage of a war, as America is now doing with tlie Viet Nam conflict. I was suggested such coverage might embitter the public so much the country might be sapped of its determination to defend itself.

Each girl works one day a week from 6 p.m. Adult volunteers are also needed for supervisory duties in the Candy Striper program. Persons wishing to take part in the program are asked to call Mrs. Ray Walters, co-ordina- tor, at 328-6705.

Tlie result: were given tne serum. Broadcasting's effective mis- use by a single individual was exemplified in Hitler, only 40 years ago, and U.S. Senator Joe McCarthy, only '20 years ago. Miss Stephenson suggested in a quote by U.S. commentator James Reston that current im- balance of political reporting by networks has taken tlie form of more attention to the party in office and men of wealth. She said each radio and TV station has the responsibility to maintain a balance between those in and out of office, and poor and rich candidate. Citing some of the problems facing American broadcasting, she noted: loss of million in cigarette advertising which will take effect in January in the U.S.; "unknown future growth patterns and inroads of CATV (community antenna TV or cablevision) on free broadcast- issue of "fairness" which ivinqf u in the U.S. has taken such forms as the Democratic Party asking for free primetime to answer presidential speeches on Vietnam; concept of limitation of wlitieal broadcast advertising; opening of congress to TV cov- erage of its regular sessions, (an idea which has been sug- jested in Canada in relation to regular sessions of Parliament and the ;ures.)

Mr. Dueck, 40, president of ?airhaven Realty and Construc- tion Ltd., said: "Once we get extreme competition or com- mission-cutting or whatever you want to call it, we will revert right back to the status we had some years ago, when it was a dog-eat-dog type of business, where ethics and regulations were non-existent. The commis- sion rate as set by each major urban area is the rate that is necessary for the real estate broker and salesman to sur- vive." Commission rates charged by irokers vary across Canada, but generally fall between five and seven per cent for an exclu- sive listing sale. Hates for mul- tiple listing sales are usually slightly higher. The federal government began investigating real estate commission rates in 1969 in a report which dealt with anti- trust and combine legislation in the service industries. Mr. Dueck defends the fixed- commission system by saying most local real estate boards must charge what they feel is an equitable rate for their par- ticular area. He said there have been no major increases in commissions for many years. "In Winnipeg, for example, the industry's last commission increase was 12 years ago." But he would like to see the government step in with legisla- tion on licensing standards. "If the government thinks the industry is inefficient it can im- prove its licensing standards. We would encourage more strin- gent licensing through educa- tional requirements. The only educational requirements in Manitoba are those imposed by the real estate board itself. It would be better if these require- ments were written into the licensing law, so that everyone would have to meet the same standards." As a member of the Winnipeg Real Estate Board for 13 years, Mr. Dueck was responsible for developing real estate educa- ional courses and is lecturer :or the Canadian Institute of Realtors course. Replying to criticism that the jidustry is flooded with new agents, Mr. Dueck said the eco- iomic conditions of any given time impose their own controls on the number of people In the industry. "As soon as sales are down, certain people fall by the way- side. This has been the case this year, where residential and commercial sales are down sub- stantially in several major urban areas." He said Alanitoba will proba- bly have a sin-plus of agents duo to the provincial government's plan to take over the auto in- surance business. "I think it's going to hur some real estate offices seri ously. There is no doubt it wil put people out of work, not onlj in tlie insurance offices but it the real estate offices as well Tuesday, September W, 1970 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD H UNICEF Protects v Need Assistance New local persons or other children and this adds an- zations are _ still being sought other dimension to their Hallo- by UNICEF to organize the Halloween and greeting card projects.

DEAR ANN LANDERS: When I read your reply to the woman whose husband has been having a three-year affair, I thought for a moment this was 1930 and Kathleen Norris was still alive. So you believe a mother should cover up for the rat, protect him even though he doesn't deserve it, eh? The kids will think when they get older, that their mother has class, will they? Your definition of under me. How do you like my definition: Grace under pressure is Her Serene Highness, the Princess of Monaco, wearing her 1955 girdle. Sorry, but I think you're all wet. When a man cheats, I see no reason why his wife should protect him from the kids. That particular mother signed herself "Ostrich Whose Children Have Good Vision." If their vision is really good they're probably looking ahead ten years wondering which one of them will be elected to support Mom, when Dad decides to dump Class But Good Vision DEAR NO CLASS: You missed the point, Bright Eyes: Even kids who have severe myopia will see after awhile that their dad is behaving like a skunk. No one will have to draw them a diagram. I say let the guy's deeds do him in. Why should Mom demean herself by talking against him? Anti-spouse dialogue, by either mother or father, is always self-defeating and it encourages the kids to choose sides. It can also produce ulcers, migraine and other un- pleasantness. DEAR ANN LANDERS: I think it is rotten the way fruity, woman-hating designers have conspired with the greedy manufacturers to lower the hemlines. Aside from the fact that the mid-calf skirts are ugly and anti-feminine, they are uncomfortable, a hazard to driving and difficult to walk in. Worse yet, the "new look" has made millions of dollars worth of wardrobe obsolete and the aver- age woman cannot afford to throw out everything in her closet and start again. I hope you will do what you can to urge American women to refuse to buy the long look. If enough women leave these monstrosities on the racks, the style-setters will get the mes- sage. Forever DEAR MIN: Thanks for writing. Here's another point of view: DEAR ANN LANDER: Thank God tlie mini is out and decency is in. I am an executive secretary (age 26 and, I might add, my legs are good. I wore my skirts four inches above the knee because it was considered the "in" thing but I am delighted to see the mini pass out of the picture. Every time I sat down I worried about what was show- ing. My hosiery bills were murder. Now, with longer skirts and boots, I'll save a fortune. I've discovered I can use most of my minis by wearing them as tunics over a longer skirt. For the first time in four years I feel like a lady. And if the guys don't whistle so what. Let 'em guess, lieved. About 75 per cent of the prov ince's real estate brokers sel insurance as a sideline and al though it is not a major sourci of revenue it adds financial, sta biiity to many offices.
