The nation's sports writers am broadcasters, uncertain about th< effects of TV on football in pas seasons, cast a nearly unanimous vote in favor of. it as an adver ;ising agent in the Associatec Press post-season football survey But they were pretty evenly di vided as to whether televising foot jail hurt the gates at non-televisec games.

Only two said that interest in general- had decreased and 13 saic :here was little or no effect from TV. Eight gave no opinion. TV 'Whets Appetites' At the same time many of them claimed that television whetted the 'ans' appetites only for more televised games. On part 2 of the question, concerning the effect on attendance at non-TV games, 49 said there was little or none, 38 said attendance definitely was hurt and 12 gave the opinion that the ncrease in interest was reflected n greater attendance. The extent of the damage, if any, o the colleges' income couldn't )e determined, especially in view if surveys showing an increase in iver-all college football attend- nce. Several commentators point- d out that minor games in their ocalities were played at night' or t hours when there was no TV ompetition.
