OCTOBER 19, 1950 FCC Will Contest Court's Challenge Of TV Color Order BJ JACK ADAM!) WASHINGTON, Oct. 19. (fp)— Sleeves were rolled up all around today lt>t what looked like a knockdown, drag-out fight, over color television. T h « Federal Communications Commission, which was held aloof 'JK rom "" squabble over color which "ollowed its selection one week ago of Columbia Broadcasting System's color plan as the official system, announced It will vigorously contest court challenges against Its order. They have been filed In New York "id Chicago by pilot Radio Corp.. Radio corporation of America and National Broadcasting Co. At the same time, the commission moved yesterday tu get KCA's rejected color system off the airways during regular commercial telecasting periods, for which CBS has been given formal licenses effective Nov. 20. The commission notified NBC, which is affiliated with RCA, that it may continue "experimental" color broadcasts under the RCA system over Washington station WNBW and New York station WNBE. but that these broadcasts may not be handled during "normal broadcasting hours" on the NBC network. Two Croups Silent NBC and RCA had no Immediate comment. For about a year NBC has been broadcasting some of its commercial programs in RCA color, by way of keeping the public reminded that . the RCA method is "compatible" with current operations—that Is, that it may be viewed in black and white by owners of present sets wit-hout additional equipment or dial adjustment. Under the FCC ruling, NBC can make such demonstrations only in the morning hours or very late »t night when most commercial programs are off the sir. Commission Answers Charge The commission also answered an RCA charge that it may have been influenced in selecting Columbia color by biased advice from »n FCC engineer who has Invented an adapter to.enable existing sets to get the CBS color system in black and white. The commission said (he invention, by Laboratory Chief Edwin W Chapin. assisted by an aide. Willmar K. Roberts, has been turned over to the u. S. government. FCC said the government holds the patent and that no individual could collect royalties from it. Chairman KestntrA Act PCC noted lhat it publicly announced the Invention a year ago and that FCC Chairman Wayne Coy at the time formally expressed resentment at any suggestion that the commission had made a special effort to assist Columbia or wohld be Influenced in a selection of a color system "by the work of a single member of its staff or all of its staff." Meanwhile. Tele-ton Ridlo Corp bought national advertising to announce it was putting into mas; production a "Package converter." designed to give present sets Oic benefit of the projected CBS color operations. The company said the converter "will be priced so moderately it will be within the Immediate reach of every TV set owner." ^Tucker Autos Auctioned for $2,009 CHICAGO. Oct. 19.
