of expert testi mony and impressive research evidence a relationship has been conclusively established between televised crime and violence and antisocial attitudes and behavior among juvenile viewers But it tempered its comments by stating that it did not be lieve that television is either the sole or most significant cause of juvenile delinquency Sen Thomas J Dodd D Conn chairman of the subcom mittee to investigate juvenile delinquency said that the find ings are significant because each day more than 25 million children 12 and under look at television spending on the average more time

there was some kind of relation ship between televised violence and the molding of childrens attitudes and behavior The subcommittee said pri mary responsibility for the pre vailing policy which features excessive crime and violence rests with the there major net works For it is clear that the networks have the key voice in determining programming con tent throughout the nation It said the
