PBS to begin drive for funds Thure., March t, im GREELEY (Colo.) TRIBUNE by THOMAS JOSEPH By JOAN HANAUER UPITetarlilwi Writer NEW YORK (UPI) - Public Broadcasting needs public support -- which Is another way of saying money - and it is oul to prove that donations are money well spent. After watching some of the expensive programs underwritten by large corporations including so many oil companies that PBS has been called Petroleum Broadcasting System - it's hard to remember that public contributions also are necessary. PBS Is quick to point out that under the recently passed Public Broadcasting Funding Act, public television must match every II of federal aid with $2.w from other sources, and if corporations pick up the tab for all programming, public television will increasingly resemble the commercial product. Lawrence K. Grossman, the new president of PBS, has stressed that public television walks a fine line, using corporate money for programs business is willing to underwrite, while reserving government and public donation funds for controversial and-or highly specialized programming that otherwise could not be aired. In order to attract viewers to listen to its fund-raising spiel, public broadcasting is putting on what it calls Festival 76, between March 7 and March 21, with more than two dozen music, dramatic, sports and documentary specials. Program timing will differ among the more than 160 public television stations, depending on how each has scheduled its fund drive. T h e documentaries a r e among the most interesting in the programming, ranging from "I Regret Nothing," a musical tribute to Edith Piaf, to "Benito Mussolini, My Husband," certainly a controversial item since it portrays the Italian dictator as benevolently recalled by his widow and son, Vittorio. The "Festival" also raises some questions -- such as why was it the BBC, and not an American outfit, that went to Kansas City to film the 1974 convention of the Society for the Preservation And Encouragement of Barbershop Quartet Singing in America. The comedy and drama category ranges all the way from Steve Allen hosting "The Good Old Days of Radio" to "84 Charing Cross Road," a charming BBC adaptation of Helene Banff's book about her 20 year correspondence with a small London bookstore. Anne Jackson plays the lead, which always is a treat. ABC led the networks in the Nielsen ratings again this week, thanks In part to "The Sound of Music" on the Sunday movie, which racked up a 49 per cent share of the audience. CBS came in second and NBC third. The ten top standard television programs for the week ending Feb. 29, according to the A.C. Nielsen Co., were: 1: "The Sound of Music;" 2: "All In The Family;" 3: "Laverne and Shirley;" 4: Happy Days;" 5: "Maude;" 6: "Rich Man, Poor Man;" 7. "Rhoda;" 8: (tie) Mary Tyler Moore and "Phyllis;" 10: "Jeffersons." Actually, Nielsen listed a five-minute political update by Harry Reasoner on ABC, "Political Spirit of 76" on the New Hampshire primary, and it came in sixth, ahead of "Rich Man, Poor Man." That could be because it followed "Happy.Days" and ran in the first five minutes of "Laverne and Shirley."

MÂ»ny classified ads like that OM in a Hampshire newspaper, toe Romsey Advertiser, have appeared in the British press over the past few weeks as employers try to evade violation of * new equality law. The Sex Discrimination Act, which took force Dec. 29, bans discrimination in employment and job recruitment on the basis of sex.

"People are having to word advertisements carefully to comply with the act and, at the same time, get what they want. It's absurdity gone mad," commented Colin Hooton, managing director of Repete Publicity, Ltd., an ad agency at Wellingborough in the English Midlands. Hooton's agency placed in the Northampton Evening Telegraph an ad considered one of the more flagrant evasions of the law by the Equal Opportunities Commission, set up to police the new act. "What we really wanted was a mini-skirted, blue-eyed blonde," read the text of the ad beside a sketch of a trim young woman in mini-skirt and boots, "but under the Sex Discrimintatlon Act we can't advertise for her so we'll just say we require a receptionist." "Nobody took our advertisement frivolously and we made it clear what we wanted," Hooton said. "We had serious applications from 17-year-olds through to middle-aged women. Significantly, no men applied." Hooton said he had 60 applicants, interviewed about 20 and selected 17-year-old Deborah Farden -- not a blonde, but an attractive leggy girl fond of mini-skirts and boots. "I think the new act has advantages," Miss Farden said, "but it seems ridiculous when both sexes can apply for jobs which are obviously designed for a man or for a woman." Things didn't work out so well for Eton college, the elite boys' school at Windsor just west of London. The school placed an ad in the Slough and Windsor Express that said; "Somebody to help in the pantry and dining room: a person to share a flat with another woman." "The new laws have made it impossible for us to advertise for a woman and we thought that phrasing it this way would overcome the problem," said Mrs. Elizabeth Gage-Hardy, matron at Eton's Warre House. "Instead all the early calls were from men who obviously thought it was a jolly nice idea to be able to share a flat with a woman. ... The lady the new worker has to share with is the most spinsterous of spinsters and was not amused by the idea of a man living with her." Not many women were likely to reply to this ad in the Long Eaton Trader: "In celebration of the equal rights bill all bricklaying vacancies will now be open to men and women alike. Applicants must have a minimum of 3tj-inch chest measurement and be prepared to strip to the waist In summer."

By Charles M. Schulz TWO FOUNDERS OF U.S. ALSO WERE INVENTORS WASHINGTON (AP) - Two inventors whose births are honored in January are much better remembered for their roles on the stage of American history. Thomas Paine, the fiery Revolutionary pamphleteer who was born on Jan. 29, 1737, also had an excellent mechanical mind which produced numerous patents, according to Intellectual Properly Owners Inc., a nonprofit organization dedicated to strengthening our patent system. Among his inventions was the first iron bridge, successfully built in England, a machine for planing boards, a crane and an improved carriage wheel. Benjamin Franklin was a great statesman and more of a scientist than an inventor, but our first "Universal Man" did invent bifocal eyeglasses, the lightning rod and what came to be known as the "Franklin stove." Born Jan. 17, 1706, Franklin won international attention with his experiments with electricity and the lightning rod was a more by-product.
