Airtime is 8 p.m. Sunday on ETV. Nickelodeon changes its image, logo, style Thursday, October 18, 1984 Hattiesburg AMERICAN 3B Black economist probes activities In a special one-hour documentary, "The State Against Blacks," economist Walter Williams argues now is the time for blacks and other minorities to channel their energies toward deregulation of the economy. Opportunity, in Williams' view, comes from the marketplace, not from political emphasis. "The State Against Blacks" can be seen at 8 p.m. tonight on Mississippi ETV. Williams' opinions have been labeled by some as racist; however, his critics concede that he has credibility because he is black himself and grew up poor n th ghettos of Philadelphia. Says Willliams: "One of the best ways to sell black people down the river is to make them dependent on government largess. Presidents come and go; Congress' moods change. I don't want to make black people subject to political whims." Debating Williams' controversial views will be Rep. Charles Rangel (D-NY) and economist Bernard Anderson. .,,,,,i.i.iiir,.fa;,,7,f,,,.J, ,,, Heritage Frame Gallery GRAND OPENING in oM ncr custom framing IV IM VI I SAT. OCT. 20-SAT.

The key element of this style, and the one that reflects it's concept the best is the new "Nickelodeon" logo. The logo is a malleable variety of shapes in the color orange containing the "Nickelodeon" name embossed in white letters. Everything from an animated exploding star to mythical monsters is used as a field for the "Nickelodeon" name. The mutable action-packed animated logo design is representative not only of the wide variety of programming seen on the channel but also of the diversity of children's interests. Continuity of identity is maintained through the consistant white on orange color of all the designs. The new on-air promos are varied in content yet are unified by the effort to appeal to a child's active sense of curiosity. These new promos show more kids and invite more viewer participation. Some of the new promos are humorous while others are suspenseful and dramatic, but they all have a built-in element of surprise. Geraldine Laybourne, vice president for programming, said "Nickelodeon's new on-air look takes an approach that encourages unending variety both in sound and on the screen. To understand it one only has to look at a child at play to see the kind of creative thinking that we're trying to keep up with. "Nickelodeon's" past success in programming is based on staying in tune with kids' changing interests and habits. Our new channel concept draws from that bank of knowledge." In addition to the channel's on-air promos, print advertisements and merchandise will also carry the new design concept. "Nickelodeon" is a registered trademark of MTV Networks Inc.
