Pay TV heads for stormy session on House floor By ROBERT A. HUNT Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON (AP) - The first bid for a pay television system was filed with the Federal Communications Commission in 1952 but 18 years later the fight still rages. It's headed for the House floor now but there is no fixed date for the confrontation assured by a slashing minority report on a bill approved by the House Commerce Committee. "This is mischievous legislation dictated by powerful interest groups—the broadcasters and theater owners," the nine minority panel members claim. They said as now written the bill "would kill this new industry aborning." However, the committee's majority, argued the proposed regulations "are the most effective means for ensuring that the programming now offered on conventional television will remain available to the viewing public without charge." The FCC approved a pay-TV plan in December 1968. It was upheld by the U.S. Court of Appeals. The Supreme Court declined to review it. But the House committee, which has been calling for delays in putting the system into effect, came up with a series of more stringent regulations that could throw up a big roadblock. Included in the proposal are a complete ban on commercial advertising, a sharp reduction in the amount of feature films and sports—considered the backbone of pay TV—that could be shown, and a stretch-out on the time ban for showing certain sports programs. The new package was drafted by Rep. John D. Dingell, D- Mich., a long-time congressional opponents of pay television. Dingell originally had introduced a bill that would have prohibited the FCC from authorizing anyone to engage in pay TV broadcasting. A Commerce subcommittee rejected it and approved a resolution suggesting the FCC modify its rules on sports programs. When that subcommittee proposal came before the full committee, however, it was rejected in turn. Dingell's new package then was rammed through, opponents claim, without any actual hearings and in the absence of subcommittee Chairman Rep. Torbert H. Macdonald, D-Mass. Here are some major changes proposed by the committee: —The FCC would allow a pay-TV station to show commercial advertising in its convex tional programming. The Dhi gell proposal would ban it entirely, both in the station's pay and conventional operations. —The FCC would provide that not more than 90 per cent of the pay-TV operation could be in a combination of feature films and sporting events. Dingell's bill would make it 45 per cent of he over-all operation and not more than 60 per cent in prime ,ime hours, from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. —The bill would extend from ,wo to five years the ban against pay on showing sports wograms which have been teg ularly carried live on convex ional television in a communi' —It would carry over an FCC ban against showing any series )rogram with an interconnected )lot and add a ban against car •ying non-dramatic program: shown in a community on conventional TV for five years. —It would prohibit feature •ilms from being shown on pay television more than one year after first general release. The FCC had proposed this be set at two years. "The commission (FCC) is subjected to intense but covert pressures when the financial stakes are high," the committee's majority report said. "Therefore, it was felt that the guidelines for STV and particularly the safeguards preventing the siphoning of conventional television programming should have the force of law." But the 9-member minority concluded that the probabilities of such siphoning are quite remote. Guard call-up statistics given COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - A fifth of the Ohio National Guard callups since the end of World War II have been during this April and May, Lt. Col. J.E.P. McCann reported today. McCann, administrative assistant to Ohio Adjt. Gen. Sylvester Del Corso, said the Guard has been called to state active duty 43 times since World War II to give aid to civil authorities during disturbances and natural disasters. Nine of these calls were during April and May because of campus disturbances. He said Guardsmen were called out once in 1948, once in 1952, once in 1957, once in 1965, three times in 1966, four times in 1967, 13 times in 1968, 10 times in 1969 and nine times so far this year. Callouts during the past 22 years, he said, have been foi teenage, prison, race and stu dent ripts; floods, tornadoes train wrecks, industrial disputes and a pipeline break. He noted that calling of the Guard for protection of property and the safety of the state's citizens, "always costly to tax payers, has become more so over the years and expenses will take another jump June 23 when the minimum pay of Guardsmen goes up from $12.80 to $25 daily." When Yellowstone National Park opened in 1872, trains and stagecoaches brought only the most intrepid lovers of nature. Visiting the park meant open- fire cooking, sleeping in tents or under the stars, and plenty of 19th-century "roughing it."

Cigaret smokers, who have consumed 200,000 cigarets or who have smoked 20 years, are almost certain to die of lung cancer or other tobacco related diseases, Dr. John W. Turner of Springfield, Mass., said at the International Cancer Congress in Houston Monday. He said the longer an individual smokes the greater the deterioration of certain cells in the body and these cells finally reach a point beyond reclamation. Turner, a radiologist, lias studied the relation between cancer and tobacco use for 20 years. (UPI Telephoto) Tto? f iffles«Hep»mer Tttc*., May 2ft, 1971 B-5 Lebanese repulse attack By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS crossed the border with tanks Israeli troops crossed the Lebanese border Monday night for he second titne in a day, but .ebanese troops drove them 5ack across the frontier, a mili- ary communique in Beirut said oday. Israel denied the report, saying no Israeli patrol crossed he border during the night. The Lebanese said one of heir officers was killed in the '•ighting at Marwahein, a few lundred yards from the border and 10 miles east of the Medi' errancan. Israeli casualties were not mentioned. Israeli forces crossed the border earlier Monday, sparking fears in Lebanon that a major invasion was under way. The Lebanese said the Israelis and motorized infantry, but were stopped a mile from the border and driven back after four hours of fighting. One Lebanese was killed and six injured, the Lebanese said. The Israelis said they sent two small units totaling 28 men and four tanks across the border on a hunt for Arab guerrillas. There was little firing and no Israeli casualties, a spokesman in Tel Aviv said. More farmers fled from southern Lebanon, bringing the total of refugees from the south to 30,000, according to reports in Beirut newspapers. Government officials put the figure at 15,0 I^bancsc religious leaders called a general strike, accusing the Beirut government of negli- gence in protecting the south, and the strike appeared nearly 100 per cent effective in the capital. All shops were closed; dockworkers stood idle at the piers; municipal buses were not running; many large trading concerns did not open; newspapers did not publish; and all schools were closed. Lebanon has been waiting nervously for more major Israeli moves in retaliation for the Arab guerrilla attack on an Israeli school bus Twelve persons, last Friday, mostly children, were killed in the attack. Shortly after the mortar and rocket attack, Israeli artillery shelled four Lebanese border villages in reprisal, killing 20 and wounding 40. MIRV missiles installed PARSHALL, N.D. (AP) The latest, addition to the nation's arsenal of nuclear missiles is being slipped into underground silos on the prairies of North Dakota.

The Supreme court referred the cases back to juvenile court for a finding of delinquency. The actual juvenile charges against the pair were for wound ing Police Lt. Elmer Joseph during the shootout between Black Nationalists and police. Police said a bullet in Joseph's leg was traced to a rifle used by the pair. Assistant Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Charles R. Laurie said the pair could have been re-indicted in Common Pleas Court, "but they were not ring leaders and besides, many kej witnesses are no longer avail able."

But Monday's installation was he first one in which news media were notified. The Pentagon said warheads 'or the missiles now being installed will be added next month. The Minuteman III can be equipped either with the single nuclear warhead of the earlier Minuteman I and II or the MIRV, which contains multiple .varheads that can be delivered to several different targets. The new missiles were estimated to cost $300 million with another $150 million spent, on the modification of existing launch facilities and launch control centers and the installation of ground support equipment ai the 150 silos throughout eight North Dakota counties. Minot is the first base to have the MIRV system as part of Minuteman III rocket, which weighs 76,000 pounds, abou three tons heavier than earliet models, and has a range of 6,000 miles at up to 15,000 miles per hour.

Young asks halt to Greek regime WASHINGTON (AP) — Sen. Stephen M. Young said Monday he Nixon administration is "giving .serious consideration to renewing full - scale American arms shipment to the Greek regime." But the administration is withholding any announcement, the Ohio Democrat lold the Senate, "for fear it would sabotage the Rome NATO meeting, as our NATO allies have made it clear they are biltcrly opposed to the junta." The North Atlantic Treaty Organization is meeting in Rome this week. Young said this country should immediately halt military aid to Greece, which he said had amounted' to $234 million since the current Greek government took power three years ago.
