Ex-CBS Chief Challenges the FCC,
Urges 'New Order' in Broadcasting
In February of 1966, Columbia
Broadcasting System decided not
to broadcast the Vietnam hear-
ings and instead showed a rerun
of "I Love Lucy." Thereupon its
president. Fred W. Friendly, re-
He is now the Ford Foundation
television adviser and is Columbia
University's Edward R. Murrow
Professor of Broadcast Journal-
ism. In his challenging book, "Due
to Circumstances Beyond Our
Control . . . ", just issued by Ran-
dom House, he presents his views
and some valuable suggestions.
He proposes new legislation to
provide for safekeeping of broad-
casting and other public resources
and he accuses the F ederal
Communications Commission of
"failure to plan and failure to
understand the true meaning of
"The challenge to reorder our
food on television ($40,700,000)
than it does on educational tele-
vision program production, the
economics of a new order come
hard. Is it unreasonable, that a
station which, when originally
franchised, was not expected to
make much, money and now makes
$5,000,000 or $10,000,000 a year,
should have its public charter
amended because of changing cir-
cumstances? Should a license re-
ceived originally of little or no
outlay become a legacy worth
$20,000,000 or 530.000,000 without
the people who granted it retain-
ing some equity in it?"
In spite of government rulings,
laid down when broadcasting was
in its infancy, intended to protect
the public interest. Friendly says
that "our society has never really
established who owns broadcast-
ing's franchises; the argument as
to whether they are the public's
or the investors' has never been
' settled because we have never
delineated a philosophy of broad-
, cast law. By default we have per-
mitted the investors' equity to
control what is basically a public-
television circuits and to estab-
lish a Magna Charts of broad-
casting is an opportunity that
must be exercised now, or per-
haps never," he declares.
Friendly believes a new order
is possible, and he declares:

more than three times as much
money advertising cat and dog

CHICAGO (JTA) — Despite ob-
jections by American Nazi Party
leader George Rockwell, the state
of Illinois obtained Tuesday a court
continuance of three c ha r g e
against the Nazi.
Rockwell alleged "harrassment "
claiming that "it costs me $100 to
come here -from Arlington, Va.,
everytime." He is charged with dis-
orderly conduct, obstructing a
police officer and criminal tres-
passing as a result of a visit to the
office of Sheriff Richard Ogilvie

Expect $30,000,000 Rise
in Exports From Israel
JERUSALEM (JTA)—Israeli in-
dustry has prospects of increasing
exports to the United States by
$30,000,000 annually. Zev Sharef,
the commerce and industry minis-
ter, told the Cabinet Tuesday.
Sharef, who recently returned
from a visit to the United States
and Britain, said that the prospec-
tive increased exports were not
the "philanthropic kind." He added
that businessmen he had talked to
who had expressed interest had
been both Jews and non-Jews.
He also disclosed that one of
the "misjudgments" of American
importers had been that Israel
had been considered hitherto as
an exporter only of "soft" mer-
chandise, such as textiles. He
said that importers and prospec-
tive investors he had talked to
had been impressed with Israel's
ability in the fields of metals,
electricity and electronics.
He also disclosed that some of
the businessmen with whom he
had met had already arrived in
Israel for further talks and that
others would follow. He warned
that Israeli industry would have to
meet the test of prices, quality and
delivery dates to which American
importers were accustomed.
