Thursday, May 5, 1966 THE INDIANAPOLIS N E V Page 13 v-once rnmg Both Legal By Richard K. Shull A quick scan of the behind-the-scenes activities of the Federal Communications Commission can bring one to realize abruptly that America's air waves are more congested than the sinuses on a TV cold remedy commercial. ... ' - The FCC must wage' a continual two-front war on behalf of. (1) those citizens who complain of outsid interference disrupting their radio-TV reception, and (2) those who complain of what they receive when their reception is good. ' The FCC devotes considerable time to remedying th former, but is powerless to act on the latter. FCC field men devote their time to tracking down precocious teen-agers witn bootleg radio transmitters, doctors with static-inducing diathermy machines, and other such clutter. In Detroit, for example, a rash of complaints over TV interference brought the wrath of the FCC down on a female dog with a litter of pups. Each time the mother dog shifted, she jostled a short in the heating pad her thoughtful master had put in the whelping box. In Dallas, radio distress calls were being received over the FM band. Turned out a defense contractor manufacturing An Shull TRUDY ; 'lit u mir: , -'ft v w Irritations, d Bootleg distress buoys for the Navy had been testing the "SOS" signals on his product to the distress of everyone tuned to that frequency. The most persistent problem for the FCC probers is tracking down unlicensed transmitters, usually operated by young men who build their own equipment, assign themselves a frequency and call letters, then go on the air, sometimes interfering with crucial radio communications. You'd fail to recognize the humor, for instance, if your radio-controlled garage door suddenly descended as you were driving in, thanks to an impulse from a bootleg transmitter. Even the licensed broadcasters sometimes give the FCC fits, as in the case of an Air Force plane flying over Florida. The plane's crew enjoyed the music on its radio frequency from an off-frequency FM radio station until it needed the use of its radio for a delicate in-flight refueling operation, then came the protest, detection and correction. These problems, the FCC can handle. The more knubby ones concerning smelly programming, offensive commercials, and stupid broadcasting station management, the FCC is powerless to handle. When a housewife writes and complains that the deodorant commercials on TV are infinitely more offensive than any of her musky friends, the FCC can only suggest she refer her lament to the network, station or sponsor. (Freedom of speech, you know.) Nor can the FCC stop stations from mutilating old movies on TV, or prohibit radio stations from cluttering their frequencies all day in give-away contests to spur ratings. The FCC gets an average 2,000 complaints a month ranging from objections to interference to protests against spe cific programs or commercials, of which only about one-third are within the FCC's realm of authority. Smokestacks, it seems, are only a minor form of air pollution. The Memory Donald Davidson, the British immigrant with the photographic memory for statistics on the 500-Mile Race, will begin his own daily radio show here tonight, "Dial Davidson," 6:30 p.m. WIBC. Davidson will take phone calls during his 15-minute show in what may be a game of stump-the-expert.. A Londoner, Davidson made a specialty of memorizing statistics on the race. When he first came over two years ago, WIBC's Sid Collins discovered him and put him on the world-wide radio network for the race which Collins annually announces. Since then, Davidson has moved to this country and became a regular part of WIBC's coverage. Speaking of Collins, he again has his six-a-week "Speedway Gossip" show at 6:45 p.m. for the rest of this month. Collins said about 250 stations in the U.S. and Canada will be hooked in for his half-hour time trial reports on each of the qualification days, and some 800 stations world-wide will be tied to his four-hour Race Day coverage. j?

Opinion New Influenza Vaccine Made ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) Two University of Michigan doctors said today they have developed a new, more potent influenza vaccine which can be safely used to protect young children and infants. In a paper prepared for delivery at the annual meeting of the American Society for Microbiology at Los Angeles, the doctors said the new vaccine eliminates the - flu-like symptoms of fever and headache often noted by adults following vaccination and is several times stronger than the standard type. Driving safety tip: .Don't follow the car. ahead ' too closely. ' ' ', ; ; V Give me your opinion of the Academy awards. G.L. Asinine. Nonkudos Nonkudos to you, Shull. Al though I find the majority of your acrimonious comments entertaining, they sometimes show a lack preception. Re garding your comment claim- Adam West On Pico Blvd. ing the ending scene of "Lamp at Midnight" was "infantile and condescending," I found the scene personally satisfy ing. The presentation of Galileo's dialogues by John Milton was tangible proof to Galileo, in his own lifetime, that his work was not futile. The fact that his principles have since been accepted is hardly relevant when consid ering the personal satisfaction Galileo must have felt. Must you find fault with everything? T. SCOTT DU BOSE The playwright, Barrie Stavis, considered his work complete without it. But then, if you feel you needed it, okay. MlJ4f ...!7 GIFT IDEAS I U Very Special from SABLOSKY'S!

The historic and architecturally beautiful buildings that remain today on the hill rising above the oldest section of this Greek city are in danger of falling to pieces, according to British and Greek archeo-logical experts. Dr. J. J. Plenderleith, a British specialist in the preservation of ancient monuments, recently warned Greek officials that pollution in the air, sea water and from planes poses a serious threat to the Acropolis. mm WHO'S MAKING CAT FOOD!
