m arbos1 flcea mmmmmmm SAN p8KQtels pilot Monday Evening July 27 1953 Page 3 Harvey Girds for Battle Over Television Station Reds Keep Barrage Till Up Shell End By NEWS-PILOT BUKEAU TORRANCE A hot battle shaped up today for Television Channel 34 in the Los Angeles area with the Federal Communications Commission indicating that a hearing may be necessary to determine which of three applicants will be granted the operating license Paving the way for a possible hearing was the FCCs denial of a request from Lawrence A Harvey Torrance industrialist to dismiss the application of Spanish International Television Inc for the channel Harvey himself is an applicant for the same channel as is Radio Station KFWB of Hollywood according to FCC records The dismissed Harvey petition alleged that Spanish Internation- al if granted the channel proposes to locate its main studio in Glendale without a request having been made that the rule requiring the main studio to be located in the principal community to be served be waived Charges Foreign Ownership The Harvey petition further alleged that since one 20 per cent stockholder is a Mexican citizen and another stockholder (both were unidentified by the FCC) claims birth in Honolulu before 1900 it appears that more than 20 per cent of the stock may be owned or voted by aliens in violation of Section 310 of the Communications Act that permission was not obtained from California authorities to issue securities and the securing of subscription agreements after incorporation violates California law that there are no corporate by-laws and that there is no reso lution of the board of directors authorizing the filing of the ap plication" The FCC ruled that while it is evident that the subject ap plication leaves much to be de sired by way of compliance with instructions in the application we are of the view based on the policy consistently followed by the commission in such mat ters in the past that the Spanish application is sufficiently com plete to warrant further consid eration on its merits Would Be 10th Station Harvey applied for Channel 34 on Nov 12 1952 and Spanish International filed for the same outlet on Nov 17 1952 The unfreezing of additional channels in the ultra high fre quency band by the FCC in 1952 will give the Los Angeles metro politan area a total of 10 video channels as soon as the grantees of the new channels are determined Harvey had tried unsuccess fully to have the FCC boost the total of channels to 11 in an earlier action The commission said that a hearing now is indicated to settle the competition for Channel 34 (Continued from Page 1) then will trade and sign the other half Exchange of more than 100000 prisoners of war probably starts within the week Reds say theyll free 12736

Wal-teria branch of the county library needs only about 100 more names before being submitted to County Librarian John Henderson according to Mrs Mesley Crocheron secretary of the petitioning group She said that approximately 250 Walterians have already signed the request which claims the three days and two evenings a week that the library doors are open is not sufficient for the demands of the community Mrs Crocheron who lives at 3321 Winlock Rd pointed out that the present library hours were established more than 15 years ago The petion was drawn up in 'Big' Savings Made by City WILMINGTON

movie on deep sea fishing State Population Growing Younger SACRAMENTO (UP) A pop ulation report by the Department of Finance show changes in Californias age composition are going on constantly with the bulk of the population under 35 years of age The changes are caused the de partment says as the result of the aging of the population resident here deaths births and net migration The most dramatic changes are those in the age groups under 20 years of age in the 1950 census as compared to 1940 The change reflects the impact of the changing number of births in the last 20 years The total number of persons under 20 years of age in California in 1950 was some 3000000 Births and migration added another 3500000 to the population the department says The proportion of the aged also growing the department says but at a slower rate than that of the younger ages (Continued from Page 1)' the Korean War cost the United States More than 22000 dead on the battlefield part of a 140000 casualty total More than 15 billion dollars to help pay for over 1125000 tons of artillery ammunition over 1 800000000 bullets and grenades 800 tanks and 40000 trucks used up in battle more than two million shells for naval guns hundreds of thousands of tons of bombs It triggered a general rearmament program for which the government has spent to date over 101 billion dollars Shooting Stops The shooting and the casualty lists will stop But the boys wont start home tomorrow or next week Secretary of Defense Wilson says It will be a long time before we can with safety withdraw our troops from Korea A long time can mean six months or more depending on how fast prisoners are exchanged and how soon peace instead of mere armistice can be assured Everyone President Eisenhower Secretary of State Dulles Wilson hurried to caution the country that a Korean truce should not be a signal for demobilization or letdown of the defenses against a bigger war by Russia No Let Down The government is obviously worried lest industry think that the truce means quick and wholesale cancellation of munitions orders Hardly had the truce signing announcement been made when Wilson issued a statement saying current productions plans would be continued until such time as an orderly production plan can be worked out that will take into account the changed Korean requirements He did not however give a hint of whether that plan would be ready soon or at some distant date On the day the war started June 25 1950 the United States had under arms 14603)00 men in the Army Navy Marines and Air Force Less than half a dozen Army divisions were manned and equipped to a point where they were ready for battle Today the military manpower counts up to about 31-! million although it is being trimmed some under the economy program The Army has 20 divisions WASHINGTON I The Defense Department anticipates that monthly draft calls will drop 4000 in about three months if reasonably stable conditions are achieved in Korea within that time John A Hannah assistant secretary for manpower disclosed this prospect recently in stressing the continuing need for Selective Service as long as the United States keeps more than three million men in uniform A 4000 drop would mean cutting the monthly call from 23000 to 19000 However Hannah calculates that it may be necessary to raise the monthly draft quota to around 40000 beginning in July 1954 The reason is that draft calls were very heavy in the first 18 months of the Korean War and large numbers of those men will be complet ing their cycle of duty next year They will have to be replaced The armistice will have no im portant effect on the drafting of 19 - yearolds Selective Service headquarters said An official said in most states older men who were qualified have already been drafted and that men under 20 must be used to fill the needs of the armed services PANMUNJOM Here are some of the important dates of the Korean War and armistice

signed shooting stops Jap Bill Would Hike Export Of Canned Tuna Skipjack A bill has been introduced in the Japanese Diet for the promotion of canned tuna and skipjack exports to the United States according to the Fish and Wildlife Service Japanese exporters of frozen tuna are seeking the support of tuna and skip jack fishermen in opposing the bill which is based on ! the contention that there is more profit in exporting canned as opposed to frozen tuna An article in the Nippon Times had this to say: The backers of the bill contend that the best interests of Japan will be served by exporting tuna as a finished product canned rather than the unpro cessed state to feed American canneries It is true of course that we stand to make a greater gain by selling processed rather than raw tuna But we cannot have our cake and eat it too It is not difficult to imagine what would happen if we suddenly decided to curb our export of frozen tuna and to concentrate on the sale of canned tuna For one thing the American packing industry will come out with a concentrated drive to raise the present high tariff on canned tuna and restrict its import For another it will give great impetus to our chief competitors Peru and the Pacific Coast fishermen to expand their operations and in this they have the aid of the packers so that the present heavy demands for unprocessed tuna can be met Japan will lose her market not only for canned but frozen tuna as well In short there will not be any cake at all for her" the article concludes Optimists to See Cable Car Film History of the Cable
