PACK TIN BLTTHBVILLE (ARK.)' COURIER HEWS SATUKDAY, SEPTEMBER 24, 1B4» TMI NATION TODAY FCC Television Hearings Mean Changes Are in the Making, But May Be Delayed Many Months By J«k (For June* Marlow) WASHINGTON, Sept. 24. (if)—The. television hearings opening here mean thmt changes are In the making In his newest field of entertainment. But dont trpect anything to happen suddenly—or even anytime a tecult at the Fedral Communications Commission'* latest atudy of the subject. Just now presents a p*ck*e» much too complex for any quick handling, by either government or industry. In other words, If you are thinking in terms of forget It. 'color by Christ- In ail the legalistic discussion that will go on before the FCC during the next few weeks, the important thine to remember Is this: The television «et you now have or may be thinking of buying from your local store will always be able la tune in Just what It Is tuning in now, until it wears out. If the FCC makes the changes it is now considering, you can buy «ome gadgets for these present sets to get !n on whatever may be added to the television system. The hearings will deal principally with these three things; 1. More channels, designed to open local television cutlets In more towns. i 2. Revised engineering standards for the video broadcasters. 3. Color television. Under the first heading, 42 new channels are proposed In the "ultra high frequencies," to be added to the present 12 channels in the "very Ihigh frequencies." Most present sets are tooled for VHP only. II your town gels a VHF channel and you want to tune In on it, you will need a "converter." The experts think they can be produced at relatively low cost—say, $15 to $18. Item two deals mainly with the technical question of how far apart video broadcasting towers should be located for Improved reception. In Its probe Into the final item, FCC will look over a half dozen proposals for color televising, to find out if any of them are ripe for regular operation. Under present plans, if color should be authorized the programs would be available to present set owners who could tune them in in black-and-white. By hooking an "adapter" to the present set, they could get color. The cost of an adapter is estimated at $15, but the experts hope a cheaper edition will result from mass production. In any case, nothing will happen right away. Radio people say that even 11 things move along at a fast clip, it would hardly be possible for any VHF station to get on the air during 1950. And the radio manufacturers' association has told FCC that color 'television for the general public is probably "several years" away.

P)—If the Russians have made an atomic bomb, they have fulfilled 1*45 predictions o( leading American scientists, pays a University of Arkansas scientist. He Is Dr. Raymond R. Edwards, nuclear scientist on the university faculty and research staff. He formerly was at the Oak Ridge atomic slant. Dr. Edwards said there Is nc secret concerning atomic energy and reaction, the only secret being the method of constructing an atomic x>mb. "It was dearly evident that these problems would be worked out in lime by other nations," he said. 'If the Hussions have discovered the means of making the atomic bomb, they have carried out the predictions of leading American -scientists who forecast in 1945 that the Russians would be m.iking the atomic bomb within five years. That was why the scientists were so anxious that means of international controls be worked out in order to iivold an International atomic bomb race. I hope it isn't too Inte to work out some sort, ol effective international control."
