Mount Pleasant News (Newspaper) - May 25, 1970, Mount Pleasant, Iowa
It pleasant news vol. 92, no. 123 it. Pleasant Iowa monday evening May 25, 1970 Price to cents these Days by John Chamberlain killing pay to by slow motion tactics the proponents of pay to must be chewing their nails Down to the half Moons these Days. After fighting for Twenty years for the right to put such things As Broadway plays Good music first run movies and sports events on the air for a subscription fee they finally managed to get their Case before the u. S. Supreme court. The result was a go ahead signal from the court to the Federal communications commission under certain relatively bearable restrictions designed to protect the interests of the existing commercial to stations. But if the pay to people thought they were finally out of the Woods they had another a a think coming. What happened is that representative John dinged of Michigan a Democrat pulled a fast one on some of his colleagues on the House of representatives communications subcommittee. Congressman dinged had been Defeated in his Effort to ban pay to outright. But in a move that was hardly Cricket he brought up a substitute bid before the full House Commerce committee when eight of its thirty six members including Massachusetts Democrat Torbert Macdonald the communications subcommittee chairman were absent. Fifteen votes representing fewer than half of the 36-Man committee put the bid Over for representative dinged and sent the legislation to the floor of the House. Too the dinged Bill is completely punitive. It would impose so Many restrictions on pay to that despite the supreme court go ahead nobody could afford to risk any capital on pay to operations. The dinged restrictions would forbid a pay to station to devote More than sixty per cent of its prime time a 7 toll in the evening to feature films and sports combined. This would effectively ban Long movies such As a funny girl or the a Green the dinged list of verboten would also keep pay to stations from using advertising commercials during the hours when they weren to Broad casting films plays and prizefight for a fee. Tills would compel subscribers to subsidize non subscription programming making the whole business prohibitively expensive. Too since the dinged Dingus is de signed to subvert the supreme court by indirection it will hardly pass both the House and the Senate. However it very effectively forestall immediate action by enterprises investors artists and Consumers designed to get pay to off the ground. The dinged Dingus could be with us for months or even years before both the House and the Senate agree to dispose of it one Way or another. What makes it thoroughly unfair is the Federal communications commissions recent decision to permit a practically unlimited Extension of Cable television or cat systems. In a four to three vote the acc accepted chairman Dean burches plan for letting Cable television proprietors use master antennae to pick up Distant signals for amplification and transmission by coaxial Cable to a Central Point from which they could be distributed by wire to local households far from the originating area. The Only restraining proviso of note is the one that would ask the cat proprietor to substitute local advertising for the usual a National commercial Breaks. Just Why one form of pay to should be favored Over another is a mystery that eludes me. Cable to is As i understand it financed in part by installation and program service charges. These charges Are comparable to the subscription fees that would be set for non Cable pay As you see television. The dinged Dingus which would automatically favor Cable to would in effect constitute a breach of the a equal rights guarantees of the Federal Constitution. However there is an even deeper constitutional question involved the first amendment guarantees Freedom of speech. The Federal communications commission was originally set up to police the air Waves assigning wave lengths on basis that would keep the air from becoming a Complete chaos from jamming. Yet the for has assumed that it has had the Power to specify the ways in which to broadcasts should be financed. Until very recently it favored financing by commercial advertisers. Hasni to this been a glaring denial israelis strike into Lebanon by up Lebanon said an israeli armoured column supported by planes and artillery struck into Southern Lebanon today. A lebanese military spokesman said the israeli attack into Southern Lebanon began at 6 45 . And charged with Omvik after Accident John Harold Vermace 27, of Des Moines formerly of it.

Focus of the War still in Cambodia a your forces Are engaging the enemy North of the Village of reports from Beirut said residents of Southern Lebanon were fleeing the area even before the latest attack in fear of More fighting. Too the lebanese military spokesman located the latest israeli attack near the Village of Saroun. It was opposite Saroun that Arab guerrillas destroyed the israeli school bus and today s retaliatory attack was generally expected. Israeli artillery already had shelled Saroun and three other villages on the lebanese Side of the Frontier. The attack was the second israeli incursion into South Lebanon in two weeks. On May 12, an israeli armoured Force estimated at brigade strength crossed into South Lebanon in search of Palestine guerrillas and clashed with regular lebanese army troops. According to Deputy sheriff Ron Elmore Verm aces car Start and a car driven by Clifford Allen Cole it. Pleasant pushed it West on 34 and into a driveway just West of the Golf club turnoff. Cole and William Dean Garmoe Salem who was a passenger in the Cole car then pushed the Vermace car by hand out onto the Highway with Vermace at the wheel. A car being driven East by Victor Edward Stenger 17, West Des Moines collided with it. It was reported there were no lights on the Vermace car and it was struck broadside by Stengert a 1957 Chevrolet. A passenger with Stenger Glen e. Lyall West Des Moines received treatment for a Back injury at memorial Hospital and was released sunday. Cole was ordered to pay a Fine of $50 and costs or spend 30 Days in jail and Garmoe was fined $10 and costs both for leaving the scene of an Accident by Justice Ruby.
