DAILY CLASSIFIEDS

LOS ANGELES () - When
it comes to sex, television is
like the fraternity loudmouth-
lots of talk but no action.
No matter that nudity and
simulated lovemaking have be-
come commonplace in movies
and plays.
"Frontal nudity and sexual
exposure: that won't happen
in commercial television,"
says Tom Kersey, ABC's West
Coast vice president of broad-
cast standards and practices.
His qualification of "commer-
cial" television is a necessary
one. Brief glimpses of naked
bodies have popped up occasion-
ally on the Public Broadcasting
Service, mostly in programs
made in England.
BUT the three commercial
networks aren't interested in
following suit, although they
are not legally restricted from
doing so and the PBS nudity
has attracted very little public
criticism.
Of PBS, Jerome Stanley,
NBC's West Coast vice presi-
dent of Broadcast standards,
says, "They're reaching a high-
ly selective audience. There's
no doubt that it can be done.
"I think it's a matter of our
responsibility as broadcasters
to cater to the vast majority of
the viewing audience as opposed
to a selective one."
THE vast majority, as far as
Stanley is concerned, does not
want to see sex and nudity on
the living room TV screen.
"When we take this position,"
he says, "I don't think we're
appealing to a minority. There
is a tendency to underestimate
the sensiivity of the American
people.
"Between Los Angeles and
New York there are a lot of
very sensitive and very moral
people."
KERSEY adds: "We've come
a long way in the last few
yea rs, bu t Ihink we've come
as far as we can."
For most of its history, TV
was noted for shoot-em-ups,
mindless situation comedies,
and fluffy variety shows.
"All in the Family" broke
this mold in 1971.
NOW daytime soap operas,
Saturday night comedies, medi-
cal dramas, late night talk
shows, movies made for tele-
vision - all deal with such
themes as abortion, venereal
disease, impotence, homosexu
ality, prostitution and rape.
Once in a great while, the
television fare is sexier than"
usual. An episode of "Rhoda"
this season, following Rhoda's
heralded wedding to Joe, had
the couple in bed on their wed-
ding night, apparently naked.
There was a reference made
to having enjoyed"what we did
half an hour ago," and the
scene ended with the pair in a
passionate embrace, clearly
preparing to do "what we did"
again.
EXECUTIVE producer Allan
Burns says there were no has-
sles with CBS over the scene
and it prompted only a few
critical letters.
But he also notes that there
was a flap with the network
over a reference to menstru-
ation in a script for "The Mary

Tyler Moore Show" last sea-
son and that CBS cancelled an
episode of "Maude" that dealt
with mate-swapping.
"They're terrifically incon-
sistent," Burns says of net-
work censors. "They go with
the winds. Their policies are on
and then off. You can never
predict what they're going to
do."
K E R S E Y and Stanleysay
they take their cues from criti-
cism they receive from organiz-
ations which write or phone
with complaints. But Burns
thinks there is another group
which exerts an undue amount
of pressure about morality --
independent station owners.
"Most of these station own-
ers are church-going Anglo-Sax-
ons who have set themselves up
as arbiters of public taste and
what the standards should be,"
Burns says.
"We get a hell of a lot of
feedback from them. I think
the public is more accepting
than the stationowners; I think
the public is more liberal than
anybody has given them credit
for."
STANLEY doesn't use "liber-
al" and "conservative" labels
but speaks in' equally hard-to-
define terms of "good taste"
and "decency."
"It's a question of what do
you want in your living room,"
sans the NBC executive. "Do
you want your husband to bring
home a half-dressed hooker. If
you don't, then why turn on the
television if that's what you're
going to see?"
That nudity is used in British
television productions without
an uproar Stanley attributes to
cultural differences.
NUDITY is far from a regu-
lar commodity on England's
BBC-TV, but a spokesman for
the independent, publicly fund-
ed network aaid in 'London 'that
it is never automatically ruled
out.
He quoted a BBC paper pre-

pared for the PttL..:'viry
Council which saJ, 'There are
occasions when nudity arises
with. complete naturalness . "
The guideline in such cases is
that the nude scene be 1'ed
with the plot of e drama or
the point of the documentary.
That guideline is much like
the lone reference to sex in the
National Association of Broad-
casters' Television Code, which
says:
"THE presentation of mar-
riage, the family and similarly
important human relationships,
and material with sexual conno-
tations ,shall not be treated ex-
ploitatively or irresponsibly, but
with sensitivity. Costuming and
movements of all performers
shall be handled in a similar
manner.'
The Federal Communications'
Commission is forbidden by law
to censor anything on the air:
But the FCC says it can order a
station to forfeit up to $1,000 if
the station violates a federal
law punishing any who "utter
obscene, indecent or profane
language" on the air.
A spokesman said this law
could be applied to nudity or
simulated sex acts on TV, al-
though it never has been so ap-
plied. In fact, no TV station has
yet been found in violation of
the law.
A spokesman added that the
FCC would act on the issue of
nudity or sex only if a com-
plaint was filed. None has been.
The networks, with an eye
on the FCC and the possibi-
lities of a complaint, impose
tough standards on themselves.
Says Stanley: "Sex is not a
spectator sport, to put it in a
nutshell."
Says Kersey: "They, the pub-
lic come to television for en-
tertainment. We in' this indus-
try are there to entertain and
toeducate. We are not there
to exploit them or ourselves or
the subject of sex.

West opened the king of

hearts, and in response to his
partner's high-low he continued
with the ace and jack of hearts.
Declarer ruffed with dummy's
ten of spades, and East over-
ruffed with the jack.
Winning East's diamond re-
turn, declarer found that he still
had to lose'a diamond trick for
down one-two hearts, the over-
ruff, and a diamond.
DECLARER made his fatal
mistake at trick three when
West continued' with the third
round of hearts. West was
marked with six hearts because
of his overcall and East's high-
low. Since declarer was destined
to lose a diamond trick anyway
he should have sluffed a small
diamond off of dummy and con-
ceded three heart tricks to
West.
Now the defense is helpless,
for South can handle any return
by West, and after pulling three
rounds of trump declarer can
ruff'his third diamond in dum-
