Ads / Political coverage to change without radio spots FROM PAGE A1 EEC general manager Jerry Hinrikus said the new policy is designed to give radio listeners more substance than 30-second sound bites and to reduce negative campaigning. "It will get away from the smear campaigns in sound bites (that) don't serve the public," Hinrikus said. "Congress has been fighting for years to come to grips with political advertising, and I think it's the right thing to do." He declined to say how much advertising revenue the broadcast company expects to lose. According to the Kansas Association of Broadcasters, no other Kansas station bars candidate advertising. "It's not something we try to stay on top of, but it's not common to do that," said Harriet Lange, the association's president and executive director. Political advertising is no big money maker for radio stations, and some make no money at all on the spots, Lange said. "If we knew the number of stations that lost money all over the country, we'd be amazed," she said. "Political advertising rules that the Federal Communication Commission administers require stations to sell candidate advertising at the lowest unit rate," she said. This" is the rate charged to a station's best commercial advertisers. The special rates apply to political advertising placed within 45 days of a primary election and within 60 days of a general election, she said. White: Some candidates hurt News of EEC's ad ban caught Allan White off guard. He and Randy Duncan were notified Wednesday. When told, White questioned T SQUARE DANCE CONVENTION the legality of the decision. "We don't know if it's legal. We have somebody checking that out," White said. "It's going to hurt the candidate on a shoestring budget," he said. For those with small war chests, radio advertising is a relatively inexpensive way to reach a lot of people, White said. Buying airtime on other stations isn't an alternative, White said, because EEC stations capture the lion's share of the local market. EEC's FM and AM holdings in Salina include KSAL, KY94, KSAJ, KZBZ (Breezy 104.9), Manhattan station KBLS (Sunny 102.5), and KABI in Abilene. "Unfortunately one person with 60 to 70 percent of the airwaves says it's closed to you. Anybody else can buy advertising, but certain groups can't." Salina Journal advertising director Jeanny Sharp said the paper has accepted and will continue to accept political advertising. The Journal also publishes, on its news pages, candidate profiles and stories about political issues. White believes EEC policy is an attempt by the radio company to restrict Democratic candidates, who typically are less well funded than Republicans. "Last election (local) Republican candidates raised $111,000. Democratic candidates raised under $30,000," White said. Republican candidates can better live without radio advertising because they have money for direct-mail campaigns, he said. White estimated it costs about $9,000 to target all 30,000 households with a direct-mail campaign just in Saline County. "The candidate with the lowest budget is going to be slighted," said White, who spent $6,000 just on radio advertisements while seeking his party's nomination" for the 24th district state Senate seat. Hinrikus: Level playing field Hinrikus disagrees, saying the new policy will increase opportunities for thinly financed candidates. "People who don't have huge advertising budgets like it. It puts them on a level playing field," Hinrikus said. "People on both sides need to be 1 heard, and this will really get to the meat of what they have to say." Randy Duncan said a forum as proposed by EEC better serves the voters. "It's hard in 30- or 60-second sound bites for any candidate tor get their messages out accurately.' A forum of 15 minutes, 30 minutes' or one hour would be so much bet-; ter, not only for the voters but for the candidates." Retired Salina teacher and former state Representative Eloise Lynch, who filed Thursday for the. Democratic nomination to the 71st District House seat held by Carol Beggs, R-Salina, said she was no fan of sound bites and sup-: ported the free forum. However, she questioned EEC's reasoning behind the ban. "That's the first question !• would have, as a candidate," Lynch said. She said voters need to hear, candidates speak on public af j fairs programs as opposed to hearing candidates' "sound bites" on short political advertisements. ',' "Sound bites are really a sign of our times," Lynch said. "I've nev-; er been in favor of those. It's a ridiculous basis on which to govern ourselves." Journal staff writer Sharon.

BiCenter to be twirling with color during square dance fete Spectators welcome for convention bringing up to 2,000 dancers By SHARON MONTAGUE The Salina Journal The skirts will be swirling and the feet stamping in Salina today and Saturday as 1,500 to 2,000 square dancers and square dance callers meet at the Bicentennial Center for their annual convention. Jody and Jim Temple, members of the Salina Twirlers square dance club, have parked their camper in the center parking lot, which is expected to hold 65 to 70 campers from Kansas, Nebraska, Missouri, Oklahoma and Colorado by this evening. Also by this evening, the Bicentennial Center will be hopping with square dancers, who wouldn't mind visits by interested spectators. Jody Temple said the annual convention has been conducted in Salina for the past 18 years. "We have the best facility," she said, "and we're in the middle of the state." Temple said young and old alike are drawn to square dancing. She and her husband graduated from "You hear the music, and your feet start tapping. And the people are just wonderful." Jody Temple Salina Twirlers square dance club member lessons in 1980 and have been dancing ever since. "It's the music and the people," she said. "You hear the music, and your feet start tapping. And the people are just wonderful." There's also the family aspect of the hobby. No alcohol is allowed before or during the Salina Twirlers' biweekly dances or the convention activities. "It's more of a family event," she said. And it's a colorful event as well. Most of the female dancers wear colorful, knee-length skirts with poofy can-can slips underneath, and the men wear long-sleeved shirts and ties. Younger dancers, though, have been drawn to the more sedate prairie skirts, Temple said, with lengths between the knee and the ankle and no can-can slip underneath. Temple said dancers and others can shop for the latest in square dance fashions at the convention, which will host eight clothing shops upstairs in the Bicentennial Center. For those who want to see the outfits on the dancers, evening dances today and Saturday are the; perfect opportunity. '• "People are welcome to come' and watch whenever they want,", Temple said. Round dancing is to commence at 6:30 p.m. today and Saturday.. Square dancing will start at 8 p.m.' both evenings. Saturday at 7:45 p.m., the Parade of Clubs is scheduled. Temple said it's something to watch. ' "It's in the main arena, and af-" terward, the floor is filled with; dancers," Temple said. "Many' times, townspeople will come just to watch." Although dancers will be found twirling all day Saturday, dancing", isn't all that's on the convention agenda Both state organizations will have business meetings Saturday, Temple said, and sewing clinics, style shows and dancing exhibi-, tions also are planned.
