Option - time clauses are standard in the agreements under which TV stations obtain network affiliations and have been sanctioned by FCC for many years.

This opinion, announced by FCC ·oday. held that option . time clauses in TV contracts "are le- gally Indistinguu*hab!c from the practices condemned" by the supreme Court [a a 13JO motion picture Industry ruling. P.sat decree outlawed the practice o! "block - booking" of motion pictures under which an independent movie theater was required to use pictures it did not want to obtain a desired feature film. How Members Voted The four FCC members who voted to continue the option time practice were Chairman John C. Doerfer. Robert E. Lee. T. A. M. Craven and John Cross. The dissenters were Commissioners Rosel II. Hyde. Robert T. Barley and Frederick \V. Ford. The commu-sion declined to say Maison Rouge Lounge 1009 SANTA FE PRESENTS THE JENSEN-CAVENDER "QUARTET" FRI.
