Telstar will not become permanent for months and even years but already the communications satellite is raising more questions than could reasonably have been anticipated Many of these have to do with Telstars more or less incidental function of transmitting TV broadcasts internationally Telstar is so tempting for ex ample that it caused collapse of the sacred release date for pic tures of new Parisgowns Both Dior and Balmain broke fhe re lease date set by the Chambre Syndicate de la Couture Paris ienne to allow pictures of their new models to be beamed across the Atlantic1 When the fashion press complained Robert Ricci president of he Chambre relaxed they rules further to sketches of the new models tobe published Fashion however is almost laughably manageable as com pared to some of the other prob lems Telstar has raised The best brains in the American Federa tion of Television and Radio Artists are now concentrating on the problems of international pay scales performance rights and that sort of thing At present transmissions are covered by existing agreements on showings abroad But new agreements will doubtless have to be drawn up when and if a per manent communications satellite system is established British Actors Equity whije not exactly panicked over international talent problems already is corresppiid ing with AFTRA on the subject according to Variety Other unions inevitably will be drawn into in ternational negotiations The show business journal raises another interesting question about Telstar What about copyrights to dramatic material A proposed telecast of Cyrano de Bergerac from the Stratford Ontario Fes tival had to be deferred because of confusion over property rights The question is further com plicated by the fact that the British Commonwealth Including Canada adheres to the Berne copyright convention while the United States does not Technological social economic and political implications of Tel star are only beginning to be recognized Any riumber of ques tions remain to be answered Here arc a few How easily can Amer ican television aside from a few demonstration broad casts be meshed with television in coun tries where the industry is a gov ernment monopoly ShouW the State Department exercise any control over the con tent of international telecasts or iginating here Television un like motion pictures already is subject to government control by the Federal Communications Com mission which is now studying regulation of International TV Rep Perkins Bass RNH has protested against government censorship But the propaganda possibilities of Telstar cannot be Ignored Quite the contrary the broadcast July 23 of a portion of President Kennedys press con ference was criticized inp some foreign quarters as propaganda Will television usurp Telstars primary function which is to relay messages and voice com munications American Telephone Telegraph people have been heard muttering about the real work

fiscal year If carried out the move would help pave the way forPresident Kennedys planned 1963 income tax cut counteract Republican use of the spendingissue in this falls cam paign and perhaps

prices WASHINGTON AP The Senate moved Thursday toward prompt passage of a drug bill given a new push by President Kennedy The bill1 designed to strengthen safeguards against the sale of dan gerous or ineffective drugs was listed by Kennedy Wednesday as one of five particularly impor tant measures on which Congress will be acting shortly Others he referred to at his news conference were the farm bill a constitutional amendment to outlaw the poll tax in federal elections the trade expansion bill and the UN bond issue bill Shortly after the drug bill was called up in the Senate late Wednesday quick agreement was reached on a limitation of debate that should bring a final vote be fore the end of Thursdays ses sion The bill as first approved by the Senate Judiciary Committee last month fell short of what Ken nedy asked Since then in the wake of the furor over the seda tive thalidomide the committee has approved strengthening amendments The legislation was introduced more than ayear ago by Sen Es tes Kefauver chairman of the Senate Antitrust subcpm mittee after a lengthy investiga tiori of the prescription drug in dustry Stripped fromthe bill by the Judiciary Committee were anti trust provisions Kefauver con ends are necessary to substan tially reduce what he calls exorbi tant drug prices Kefauver failed to win adminis tration backing for these provi sions but he has reoffered them in modified form His key amendment provides for compulsory licensing of prescrip tion drug patents after three years whenthe price to the pharmacist represents a markup of 500 per cent or more over the factory cost Licensees would have to pay royalties of 8 per cent on sales In the safety area Kefauver has an amendment giving the govern ment authority to require the test ing of new drugs on animals be fore they are used in clinical test ing on humans Sen Thomas J Dodd DConn aiso had ready for introduction a measure which would outlaw the sale and distribution of sleeping pills
