All- Star game tops Nielsens
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Home runs struck out reruns as NBC’s broadcast of the baseball All-Star game topped the competition in the latest television ratings, easily outdistancing ABC’s “Hart to Hart.”
An estimated 17.9 million households tuned in baseball’s midsummer classic, 2.2 million more than watched “Hart to Hart,” which ran second for the week ending July ll.
The All-Star game and four other Top 19 shows pushed NBC to the top of the ratings compiled by the A.C. Nielsen Co. for the week, although the network also had the three lowestows.
The American League savored its own victory July C, beating the National League IM to win its first All-Star game since 1971.
Ratings for the first full week of summer reruns showed NBC with an overall rating of 12.7. CBS had a 12.0 rating and ABC trailed at 11.4. The networks say this means that during an average primetime minute, 12.7 percent of the nation’s television sets were tuned to NBC. Each ratings point represents 833,000 homes.
NBC scored third with “The A-
Team,” a midseason replacement about a group of freelance mercenaries, and fifth with the detective show “Remington Steele.”
Rounding out the top five was CBS’s “The Jefferson,” which was rated fourth.
Other NBC programs in the Top IO were No. 9 “Hill Street Blues” and the Sunday night broadcast of the first part of the movie “Alcatras,” which tied for sixth place with CBS’s “Simon and Simon.”
NBC’s “Major League All-Star Preview” was ranked IOU).
Besides “Hart to Hart,” ABC’s only other program in the Top IO was the news magazine show “20-20,” in eighth place. CBS’s “Magnum, P.I.,” held the No. IO position.
The lowest-rated show was NBC’s news magazine show “Monitor,” down from the third-worst spot the previous week. Other shows at the bottom, in descending order, were ABCs “Monday Night Baseball Preview,” ABC’s “Ripley’s Believe It or Not,” NBC’s “NBC Reports -Central America” and NBC’s “Voyagers!”
'Killer cells' could help AIDS victims
EAST LANSING. Mich. (AP) - The body’s cancer-fighting “killer cells” could get a boost from another body chemical, scientists say, and the discovery may eventually help AIDS victims.
Lab tests on the chemical known as interleukin-2, found in healthy white blood ceils, “significantly enhanced” the activities of the killer cells, which normally destroy cancer cells and virus-infected cells, according to a study to be published in this month’s Journal of Clinical Investigation.
“These positive (lab) results suggest that interleukin-2 may eventually be helpful in the treatment of patients with AIDS," said Alain Rook on Tuesday at a meeting of the American Society for Virology at Michigan State University. But he cautioned: “The results are ex
In patients with AIDS, acquired immune deficiency syndrome, the activity of the killer cells is defective, reducing the victims’ immunity and leaving them vulnerable to other diseases, including some forms of cancer, according to Rook, a researcher with the U S. Food and Drug Administration who worked on the study
Authors of the study reported that interleukin-2 “increases the infection-
fighting activity of impaired lymphocytes (a kind of white blood cell), at least in the test tube.”
“Whether it will help AIDS patients is not yet known,” they said. “Nevertheless, the research may provide a hint about the nature of this disease and how it might be treated."
AIDS had been reported in 1,231 people in the United States as of Monday, and 634 had died, according to James Curran of the national Centers for Disease Control in Atlanta
In another development, a University of California epidemiology study reported that the number of new AIDS cases in San Francisco nearly doubled in the first three months of 1913 over the previous quarter. Forty-six new cases wore reported by March 31, compared to 26 in the last three months of 1922.
The most vulnerable groups have been male homosexuals with many sex partners, intravenous drug users, hemophiliacs and Haitians. The disease apparently is spread through sexual contact, contaminated needles and blood transfusions, not by casual contact.
Federal officials have declared AIDS their No. I health priority. Rook said it will be several months before it is determined if interleukin-2 will help combat the disease.
White questioned by radio listeners
AUSTIN (AP) — During an hour on the phone with Austin radio listeners, Gov. Mark White explained his education policies and defended his house and boat but referred an immigration query to the White House.
The governor’s personal possessions came up in questions foam a woman who reached White on KLBJ-AM radio. She recalled White s trip earlier this year to a shanty on the banks of a downtown Austin creek. He led reporters to the site to show them poverty near the Capitol.
“At that time you owned a home in West Lake Hills.” the questioner said. “I was wondering, if you really were so concerned why you didn’t offer your home to thoee people louse?” White replied, “Quite frankly, I wish I could give a house to every person who needs a home. I don’t think that’s possible ”
After taking office, White sold the house.
The same woman wanted to know about “No Chance.” a 31-foot sailboat partially owned by White. The caller said to White “recently you received a gift of a 942,099 boat from Lowell Lebermann and another friend of his, and do you think that is ethically correct?”
“No Chance” was not a gift, said White, who bought it with Austin businessman Lebermann and gubernatorial aide Pike Powers.
“I didn’t receive a gift of a boat. I own ewe third of that boat along with my two partners. I owe the one-third.

I haven’t paid for it yet,” the governor said.
After the hour of calls, one Austinite said White did a better job of fielding citizens’ questions than former Gov. Bill Clements.
Identified only ss Zeke, the caller said to speak with Clements on a call-in show, “I had to go through his bodyguards, so to speak, who quizzed me about what I wanted to ask him. There was a thorough screening process. That was not the case this morning. Gov. White did not know who was going to art Mm what”
White cooly fended off one caller’s question about immigration.
“When is our border going to be sealed, like I asked you about a year ago on the Joyce and Mel Show?” the caller asked, referring to a local television call-in show.
“Let one tell you, you’ve been calling the wrong person,” White replied. “Why don’t you call the president of the United SU tea, because that’s the person in charge of the executive branch of government. The aute of Texas has absolutely no authority to seal the borders of the sUU.”
Several callers asked White if he would bo a vicepresidential candidate in 1214.
“You don’t run for that office,” he said. “I’ve got the office now that I asked the people of Texas to lot me have. I don’t Intend to bo a candidate for any other office.”
