Press-Telegram (Newspaper) - October 12, 1959, Long Beach, California WASHINGTON OP) The chairman of the Fed- eral Trade Commission said today deceptive entertain- ment such as rigged TV shows is not something his agency can regulate. Earl W. Kintner, the FTC head, told House inves- tigators his agency has never gone beyond control of advertising which results in unfair business practices. The House subcommittee TV MYSTERY Where Is Quiz Star Van Doren?

Jn reply to questions, Kint- ner conceded that this con-' stitutes "a gray area in the law." He said Congress could en- act a law making it a crim- inal offense to rig a TV show, adding: "It would have a y effect." KINTNER ALSO suggested; broadening of the rules of thei Federal Communication Com-- mission, which is the federal- regulatory body for television! and radio. j As for his own agency, John Wayne Starlet Dies in Stabbing Prosecutor Orders Immediate Trial for 'B-oy Friend' Finest Evening Newspaper LONG BEACH 12, CALIF., MONDAY, OCTOBER 12, 1959 EDITION Vol. 216 32 PAGES PRICE 10 CENTS TELEPHONE HE 5-1161 tional. besieged with re- quests lor a statement from the man who won on the quiz show "Twenty- asked the people who should know.

USW president David J. i McDonald testified at the opening of hearings under the Taft-Hartley Act that the steelworkers will end their 90-day strike "if they are required by law to do so." "Bin the union will not be McDonald added in a prepared statement. "The basic issue will re- main. There may be a truce enforced by law but there will be no permanent peace." THE PARAMOUNT issue at stake, McDonald said, "is whether the companies will break the union." The three-man fact-finding panel headed by George W. iTaylor already had made known its belief lhat the Taft- Hartley injunction procedure is inadequate to handle major strikes.
