Walter Cronkite, CBS; Mer•ill Muller, NBC, and Bernie Eismann, ABC, acted as spokesmen for the newsmen. MEANWHILE, Videotape Productions, Inc., filed a $2.5 million damage suit against AFTRA charging that picketing of the ! irm was illegal and threaten- ng to business. The commercial film firm asked state Supreme Court Justice Vincent Lu- )iano to halt picketing because none of the employes of the firm was an AFTRA member. He reserved decision. Union Again Stalls Press At N. Y. News NEW YORK (UPI) _ The printers' union yesterday conducted its 14th work stoppage in five days at the New York Daily News, leading a publishers' spokesman to state that "we are re-evaluating the situ ation". "We are doing everything in our power to avert a shutdown of the News," said John J. Gaherin, head of the Publishers Association of New York City. "It's ironic that men continue to be paid while at the same time not producing the work for which they receive their wages." THE NEWS has been the focal point of union pressure to obtain a better contract offer from the association since contracts with 10 newspaper unions expired Thursday. The pressure has taken the form of a "chapel meeting" running from one to four hours in each of the three daily shifts at the News. Bertram A. Powers, president of Local 6 of the International Typographical Union, denied he had any wish "to provoke management at this time" and said the chapel meetings were resulting in "no overtime" for his men. He said there would also be no slowdown in work during the periods his men were working. HOWEVER, News spokesmen said the composing room stoppages were cutting into advertising revenue because considerable advertising could not be set in the remaining composing time. About 123 pages had to be dropped from last Sunday's paper. The stoppages also reduced the number of news corrections and changes normally made from edition to edition. The publishers association traditionally has maintained a "one for all and all for one" policy, suspending publication of all member papers if one is closed by a strike. OTHER MEMBERS of the association are the New York Times, World Journal Tribune, Long Island Press and Long Island Star-Journal. Mediator Theodore Kheel said the main obstacle to an agreement between the publishers and the union was "money" but that "other cleanup matters" also remained unresolved. Eight of the 10 unions have authorized their leaders to call a strike if and when they consider such action necessary, but none has set a new strike date. About Johnny Carson Quits Show "Tonight" was one of the many network shows which have had to fall back on old tapes. However, Carson was the first television star to object to this means of replacement. Negotiations between the networks and the radio employes, including all performers as well as news commentators and announcers, remained postponed indefinitely. AFTRA representatives walked out of the talks in Vvashington Sunday night and federal mediators have been unsuccessful in reviving them. THE SITUATION was complicated by the possible threat of a sympathy strike by newsreel cameramen and film editors and processors, who are represented by the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employes. The union met yesterday to decide whether to walk off their jobs at local network stations. A spokesman for IATSE said the sympathy strike could "virtually cripple" network programming. NBC-TV commentator Chet Huntley, an AFTRA member who crossed picket lines to continue his evening show, drew another rebuff yesterday in his campaign to persuade newscasters to abandon AFTRA for a union of a more journalistic cast. He said in Chicago that he was considering a proposal of forming a union representing >r in t, radio and television newsmen. Robert M. Crocker president of the Wire Service Guild which represents some of these categories of newsmen, said he had no intention of discussing an all-media guild with Huntley. In a statement issued in Augusta, Maine, Crocker said he thought it "incredible that Chet Huntley would try to win sympathy for his strike-breaking behavior by trying to involve the Wire Service Guild." In Hollywood, the annual Os-, car awards ceremonies telecast) live by ABC appeared doomed by the refusal of comedian Bob Hope and other performers to cross AFTRA picket lines.
