FCC Proposes New Rulings
For Cash Prize Programs
WASHINGTON, Aug. 5-(P)-
The Federal Communications
Commission said today it pro-
posea to crack down on radio cash
prizes which appear to involve a
lotteiy or to depend "upon lot or
The action, the Commission said
in a statement, is prompted by
"the growing number of 'money'
programs on the radio."
The announcement called at-
tention to that section of the
Communications Act which says
that no radio station "shall know-
ingly permit the broadcasting of
any advertisement of or informa-
tion concerning any lottery, gift
enterprise, or similar scheme, of-
fering prizes dependent in whole
or in part upon lot or chance, or
any list of the prizes drawn or
awarded by means of any such
lottery, gift, enterprise or scheme."
FCC made public a set of new
regulations which it said will
guide it in judging whether a
money program involves a lottery.
The effective date for these new
rules has not been determined.
The Commission said it will accept
statements for interested parties
on their proposed adoption up to
Concerning proposed general
rules on money programs, the
Commission said that nearly every
such program requires individual
study to determine its legality.
However, FCC said it will con-
sider in violation of the lottery
clause any program involving
money or other valuable prizes to
any person whose selection de-
pends upon lot or chance.
It will also consider it a viola-
tion if, as a condition to winning
a prize, the winner is required to
furnish any money.

PARIS-The American student
visiting this city for the first time
is overwhelmed by the picturesque
beauty of its tree-lined boulevards
and the historical splendor of its
build mgs, but after a few days'
stay here the harsh realities of
France's twisted economy begin to
paint a different portrait.
Aside from the fact that hot
water can be found only in the
luxurious hotels and the Ameri-
can Embassy,rhowever, not even

string experiences the fight for ex-
istence being waged by his French
The former GI's attending the
Sorbonne and other French uni-
versities, drawing their $75 per
month, are almost wealthy com-
pared to Pierre, the average
Frernch worker, who is fortunate
if ho makes $12 per week.
One of the chief culprits in this
tragedy is the Black Market. Here
the unscrupulous student-tourist
can trade in his dollars for pocket-
fulls of francs, at a current rate of
350 for 1. The proceeds are then
scattered on An already-scanty
market to send prices shooting
toward the sky.
The American does not, how-
ever, realize what he is doing; for
the prices are, to him, still ridic-
ulously low. He can get ,a good
meal for 75 cents, or see the famed
Folies Bergere for only 80 cents.
Almost everything he buys can be
purcnased at one-half or one-
thirdewhat he would pay in the
To the Frenchman, on the other
hand. 75 cents--280 francs-is an
expensive bite into his monthly $50
pay envelope. Thus Pierre is hor-
rified at the gush of illegal francs
pouring from the tourists. The vis-
itors from across the seas were
supposed to bring, with their dol-
lars, a cure for the sick French
economy; but all that Pierre sees
is higher and higher prices.
Furthermore, he sees his govern-
ment sit idly on its haunches
while the Black Market boys play
at will. In irresponsible moments
Pierre may even wonder if his
government is not actively playing
along with its illegal subjects.
Just for example, the French
government wanted the Americans
to spend as many dollars as possi-
ble, so they constructed a lure -
if the tourist cashes in at least
$20 in greenbacks or travelers
checks at the Banque de France,
he will receive gratis ration stamps
good for 200 liters of gasoline.
In their haste, or eagerness, to
get the dollars, the officials some-
how invariably forget to ask
whether the tourist has a car or
not. As a result, countless Amer-
icans go through the process, then
step outside the Banque's doors
and sell their tickets to the near-
est illegal operative for at least
The Paris journals raised a mild
howl, but no one paid any atten-
tion. It is this seemingly lacka-
daisical attitude on the part of
the government that destroys the
