NBC Worried About Newscaster Frank Blair Doing Commercials By BERNARD GAVER NE\V YORK (AP) -- After the turmoil of convention coverage ends, a platoon of NBC executives will sit down with Frank Blair and thrash out this problem: Should a well-known newscastc also appear in TV commercials? Blair, the handsome gentleman wlu) iloes the neivscasting lor "Today," has been in several huddles with network executives and there were rumors that some of the talk was tough. "It wasn't, and isn't," Blair says. Network Worried The network reportedly got worried about the situation because it was thought the public might have some doubts about newscasts done by a man who also acts as spokesman for advertisers. NBC sent a memo to chieftains and upper echelon talent which said (in substance) cut out any activity that could be interpreted as a conflict of interest. Blair, sometimes referred to as John Kennedy--"He wants us to top talking about matters ol aith. He isn't concerned aboul hereafter; but what will hap- :cn in November is driving him iut of his mind." Such commentaries are earning! Sahl a pleasant fortune, but he admitted th?t it is sometimes an. uphill fight. He faces the double' eopardy of anger and silence. The anger often comes from persons vho object to his deflation of their heroes, as with his Genernlj dacArthur crack at the oscarcast a year ago. He mentioned that in' .he triumphant return to the Philippines, it wasn't certain whether he general would walk through or on the water. The silence is even more disconcerting. "The problem is that only a Few names get immediate recognition." the comedian complained. "If I tell a joke about Nixon or Kennedy, I get laughs right away. But 1 don't have much luck with Johnson or Stevenson." Sahl has another problem that increases with his fame. That is some of the figures he satirizes. He admits to being good friends with Stevenson; he has often met Kennedy and shares the same manager with Kennedy's brother- in-law Peter Lawford. "It's hard to he satirical about people you know," Sahl remarked. "I may go to Chicago and meet Nixon. He probably won't know me, so he'd have no reason to 1« hostile. I'd probably come home and tell people, 'You ' know, he's a pretty nice guy.' " HEAT WAVE TAIPEI, I-'ormosa (AP)--Taipei is in Ihc fourth week of the severest heat wave to a f f l i c t this Chi-j nose Natinnalisl capital since 1945. j Temperatures between 95 and 100 | bprefrs, c~m*" ":il r -d by hich hu- ; midity, have been recorded. the millionaire announcer ("Nol true," he says, "the government gets most of it") has been busy as spokesman for lour advertisers other than those on the "Today" show. "I've never gotten any condeni nation from the public about com mercials," says Blair. "It would be interesting to know what the public attitude is." Blair's contract with NBC de scribes him as n commentator, but he says "I'm the last of the standup newscasters." 'There was no ultimatum from NBC telling me that I have to give up free-lance commercial work," Blair says. "If it came to a showdown, I'd probably stay with NBC, I would not give up 25 years as a newscaster to become a commercial announcer. But there are a number of questions involved here." For instance: "Let's presume T tell NBC I can't give up commercials because they bring me a sizeable By JOE tEWIS LOS ANGELES AP) - The mocrats, who tako pride in be- nglng to the party that repealed ohibltion, are faced with a cris- of vat proportions.

And when they go next door to » hugs outdoor Coliseum for the nal session and the Democratic evidential nominee's acceptance eech, it will be a time for sober flection. The same rules apply lere, too. Not Even Beer A raft of restriction's imposed the state-county-city commis- on that runs the Sports Arena nd the Coliseum won't even per- it the party of the bourbons to uy a beer on the premises. "No one around here is old nough to remember a similar n," E spokesman at convention eadquarters noted dryly. He addd: "It looks like the bar across e street Is going to do a helluva u sines s." The Democratic p a r t y isn't eking a reputation as guardian of guzzlers, he noted, but a cool brew or two has been known to allay frayed tempers in tha heat of a sizzling convention. Not Needed James E. Doyle, executive dl rector of the Adiai Stevenson campaign committee, commented "Liquor is not considered a necessity in the Democratic convention hall. Unlike the oratory at ths Republian convention, the Democrats' speeches are never dry." For those who need some form of liquid refreshment, there will be plenty of healthful California orange juice, soda pop, milk, Iced tea and coffee. That's the promise of Carolyn Latimer, coordinating secretary for the various California host committees charged with keeping the delegates happy. "Besides," she added primly, "the convention will be stimulating enou3h without liquor." EDUCATIONAL TOUR HATT1ESBURG, Miss.
