WGN-TV, owned by the Chicago Tribune, said the hearings were "unfortunate" and "badly timed" because they were called before renewal of licenses of Chicago's three network-owned stations. A more formal procedure, Quaa' said, \vould have assured the broadcasters "all the rights of due process." In a week of what the.FCC described as an "informal inquiry" into the efficiency with which local television stations were meeting their public service obligations, the network-owned outlets Models for the California S t a t e Horsemen's Association fashion show will be, left to right, Robert Pettit, association president of Region 13; Kathleen Littlefield, 1961 Garberville rodeo queen; Cynthia C a r p e n t e r , Scotia horsewoman, and Cookie Becker, 1961 Pegasus Patrol rodeo queen.

To Press For Plan On Air Corridor Control WASHINGTON (UPI) - The United States will push its plan for international control of Allied access routes to Red-encircled West Berlin at Soviet-American meetings beginning here next week. Officials said today that Secretary of Stale Dean Rusk would seek clarification of recent hints that Russia may be moving toward some such tension-easing agreement in the explosive area. Rusk will meet with the new Soviet ambassador to Washington, Anatoly F. Dobrynin, Monday to c o n t i n u e "exploratory" talks which have been carried on in New York, Moscow and Geneva Alvin Karpis Gets Out Of Alcalraz SAN FRANCISCO (UPI) -Alvin (Old Creepy) Karpis, notorious gangster of the mid-1930's and onetime "public enemy No. 1" of the FBI, has been transferred from Alcatraz Prison after a quarter-century there. Warden 0. G. Blackwell announced Wednesday that Karpis, 53, had been transferred to McNeil Island federal penitentiary at Pugct Sound, Wash. Blackwell said that Karpis had achieved a good record at Alcatraz which merited the transfer. He has asked for parole for the past 10 years, but has been consistently turned down. Karpis was convicted in 1936 of the kidnaping of St. Paul, Minn., banker Edward G. Bremer. during the past seven months. The secretary has advised Britain, France and West Germany that he wants to find out whethei there is any possibility of compromising Soviet and Western ideas of international "authority" over the access routes. Rusk and Soviet Foreign Minister Andrei Gromyko held exhaustive Berlin talks on the sidelines at the Geneva disarmament conference last month. They reported no success in (heir efforts to ease the crisis, brought on last summer by renewed Soviet demands that the Allies give up their rights in West Berlin and access to the city. But they agreed the talks should continue here. While there was no "basic progress" at Geneva, the talks did produce the first slight alteration in the Soviet position since the discussions began last autumn in New York. Gromyko responded to Rusk's proposal for international control of access routes by suggesting such a body in an "advisory" capacity. This failed to meet Western demands, since the Russian plan appeared to give Russia and Communist East Germany veto power over the international advisory group. It also seemed to be predicated on the end of the allied occupation of West Berlin. Nevertheless, Rusk was said to feel that Russian willingness even consider some form of international authority might indicate a possibility of moving the Kremlin further toward the Westei view. Retail Lumber Yard Manager Wins Rediner "Coast to Coast Newspapers Sell the Most." This is the slogan sponsored by the nation's daily newspapers dur ing the past year. To bring this message more forcefully before the country's business firms, a nation-wide contest was carried on to remind ad- yertisers that more merchandise and services are advertised and sold through newspapers than any other medium by far, and that successful retailers spend from 85 to 100 per cent of their advertis ing budget in newspapers year after year. It was further pointed out that more advertising dollars are spent in newspapers than in television, radio, magazines and billboards combined. Twelve BarcaLounger reclining chairs were awarded at the end of the campaign. One of these was won by Gunner Johnson, manager of Pacific Retail Lumber Company. It arrived a few days ago and the presentation took place Wednesday.

Ten 'gators from San Francisco's Steinhart Aquarium w e r e transferred by truck to temporary lodgings in nearby Marin County Thursday, but at the end of the day only nine answered roll call. One of the reptiles was so badly injured in a quarrel with a companion that he had to be destroyed. most of tiie 99 witnesses heard. The FCC scheduled the current the stations. Quaal said he was glad the first being held in Chicago because he was "proud" of the city's television. "I know of no city in the United Slates where the television industry is doing more to meet the public needs than in Chicago." Quaal blamed any shortage of cultural and public affairs programs on lack of sponsors and advertising agencies who are "interested in the numbers game" of ratings. He told of losing $250,000 on his station's award-winning "Ding Dong School" program by keeping it. alive while attempting to sell il to sponsors. Quaal also told of sending telegrams to 162 Chicago business firms in an effort to find a sponsor for the "Great Music from Chicago" series, which is seen over 31 U.S. stations and in Canada and South America. "We heard from 19 of these firms. None of them sponsored a broadcast." He said he has "pounded the pavements" looking for sponsors of cultural programs. Quaal criticized those who "do so much talking about television and tell us low to run our business but fail to support the types of programs they demand."

The all-school science fair will be May 25 at George C. Jacobs Junior High School, Eureka. Peaceful uses of atomic energy and radiation are being given more study than war uses, al though fallout and shelters are being studied, according to J. W Phegiey, science teacher. Eadiation areas considered b; the classes start with the sun and include light, ultra-violet rays X-rays, radioactive elements and the atomic bomb, he said. Peaceful use of tracer radioiso topes as an aid to agriculture were shown in motion pictures and books in the classroom. A strawberry plant was placec in a solution of radioactive phos phorus and its progress through the plant was traced by pupiL using a borrowed, home-built Gei ger counter. The plant is to be placed on X-ray film and left sev eral days, to take its own auto radiograph. The film then will be developed by the pupils, accord ing to Pheglcy. Another group is using the Gei ger counter to find the effects o distance on the number of counts per minute of a piece of uranium ore. Others have made counts o background radiation and studiec cosmic rays. Still other science pupils are planning a layout of a Geiger counter the class will build, ant others are making drawings am records and doing research, measurement and mathematics.

The Motor Vehicle Pollution Control board met here and approved the crankcase emission control devices. A fifth one had already been approved by the board. A million new cars now registered in California will now, as a result, have to have the anti- smog mechanisms by next April. All future new cars registered in the slate also will have to comply with the anti-smog law. American automotive manufacturers already have voluntarily equipped cars sold in the state Di' with one of the devices. Wednesday's board action makes such devices compulsory. Motor Vehicle Director Tom Bright conceeded the problem on enforcing such a broad law would the be difficult and would be studied. The four devices approved Wednesday will cost up to $(i.50 apiece. The board's executive secretary, Donald Jensen, said that the larger part of the vehicle anti-smog control--control of exhaust fumes --also is moving ahead fast. He said it was possible the board could approve two exhaust devices early next year which would mean that 1SG4 car models would be equipped with two anti- smog mechanisms. The four newly approved crankcase-control devices have been approved by Rochester Products vision of General Motors, Carter Carburetor Division of ACF Industries, Inc., Walker Manufacturing Co., ajid Volkswagen of America, Inc. The device already approved was manufactured by General Motors AC sparkplug division. Don't feel down in the DUMPS!!
