County circuit judges order threatening con tempt proceedings against Chicago delegates seated at the convention after Chicago Mayor Richard J Daleys elected delegate slate was ousted for violation of delegate selection reforms The issue presented to the Supreme Court revives one of the key delegate selection bat tles which surfaced in the weeks before the convention The Illinois fight like the others involved a challenge by supporters of Sen George McGovern to delegates chosen by oldline party leaders The Supreme Court ruled three days before the 1972 Democratic convention opened that the convention itself had the authority to judge the creden tials of its delegates Nevertheless the Daley slate obtained an injunction from the Cook County court prohibiting the McGovern slate from being seated at the convention The McGovern slate argued that the Illinois courts violated the Supreme Courts declaration that the convention should judge the delegates credentials COLDER Springfield AP A

In a 63 decision the court held that copyright laws do not apply to cable television broad cast of network programs lifted by microwave from commercial television stations The cable operators merely acts as a transmitter and not as e performer and thus escapes liability for copyright fees to the program producers the court said The television Industry had called the 10year copyright battle significant for millions of viewers The decision came in a suit brought against Teleprompter the nations largest cable television system by the Columbia Broadcasting System Inc and three production com panies which sell programs to the network CBS and the producers argued that cable operators should pay copyright fees on programs imported by cable in to communities which could not normally receive them The US Circuit Court in New York had ruled that cable operators were subject to copyright laws for programs imported within community where the same show was available on a regular network channel In a separate case the Su preme Court overturned fees levied by the Federal Com munications Commission on cable television system operators The court reversed a decision by the US Circuit Court at New Orleans upholding the fees levied by the FCC in 1970 The National Cable Television Associationattacked an annual fee of 30 cents per cable subscriber as beyond the FCCs authority

Turkish Airlines DC10 jet that crashed witha loss of 346 lives the big gest toll in civil aviation history Experts estimated that a careful search of the area covering several square miles might take a week Only part of the black box with vital recordings of the planes func tioning has been found arid top priority is being given to finding other pieces j 1 Personal effects of the j passengers were being piled together Bits of clothing caught in tree branches waved forlornly in the light wind The newspaper FrancSoir said it had received two anonymous telephone calls saying that this was done voluntary It was definitely an The two calls seemed j to come from the same man who claimed he was a member of the Liberal Front which he said was a political movement started outside France There was no way of confirming his statements The Americanbuilt airliner crashed in the Ermenonville forest 23 miles north of Paris five minutes after it took off from Orly Airport Sunday on a flight from Istanbul to London Turkish Airlines said the plane was loaded to capacity with 334 passengers and 12 crew There was no indication when the casualty list would be made public But the airlines Euro pean manager said the names of 200 to 250 of the passengers in dicated they were British or American Thirtyeight Japanese were aboard The weather was sunny and no hint of trouble came from the plane But
