O'Neill Jr., D-Mass., described the late Rep'. Torbert Macdonald, who died Friday night, as an outstanding legislator and one of Massachusetts' finest public servants. Macdonald, 58, died of internal hemorrhaging at Bethesda Naval Hospital. We had served in the House for 22 years from Massachusetts' 7th Dis- trict O'Neill, in a statement Saturday, called him "the father of public broadcasting, the architect of u ~i u tne Emergency Petrole- Macdonild ,, um A n ocat i on Act and the author of the Sports Antiblackouf Law." * * * SENATE AND House conferees agreed Wednesday in principle to make permanent the antiblackout legislation that the congressman helped write three years ago. The cause of Macdonald's illness was not publicly revealed. He had previously undergone treatment for cancer; but he told his staff that he had been cured. When he was hospitalized earlier this month. Macdonald requested that doctors shut off the mechanical devices that were helping to keep him alive. They complied with the request, and for a time it appeared that the congressman's condition was improving. An aide said that the congressman's wife. Phyllis, and their four children were at his bedside when Macdonald died. Macdonald announced last month that he would not seek re-election and he gave health problems as the reason. * · * MACDONALD HELPED create the public broadcasting system and worked to guide key legislation through Congress to provide long-range public support for that system. The antiblackout law which he forged authorizes home area television broadcasts of sold-out major sports events. The congressman was John F. Kennedy's roommate at Harvard and remained a"close friend of the late President until Kennedy's 1963 assassination. Macdonald was "devastated" by Kennedy's death, a congressional colleague said. 'Macdonald was first elected to Congress in 1954 from the city of Maiden, a Boston suburb, where he will be buried. He was chairman of the House power and communications subcommittee and a ranking member of two government operations subcommittees - conservation, energy and natural resources and govern- information and induidual rights.
