Defense Department figures show. The department made the multimillion-dollar increases known in reply to series of questions submitted by The Associated Press. The Pentagon figures show the cost of the TFX. known as the Fill, to be about S5 million 'or the Air Force version and $S million for the Navy model. In 1962 there was testimony 7/ie Sun's Te/eScope By CTNTHIA. LOWRY AP TV-Radio Writer HOLLYWOOD (AP) — Televi- sionese is a language that is sometimes harder to understand than Urdu. Ther e are, of course, the simple idioms. "Live on tape" is a good example of contradiction. Obviously a broadcast of a taped show, like "The Tonight Show" already reviewed by network censors who occasionally erase naughty words from the sound track, is not really live. The phrase merely means that the show was taped as it occurred, without goine- back to reshoot when it faltered or fell apart. When ABC recently advanced by one week the scheduled debuts of 12 of its 16 new programs, the network called them "advance premieres," and insisted that its "official premiere week" had not been changed. When, to meet this competition, NBC promptly moved up three new show dates, they were not premieres but "sneak previews." In old fashioned Hol- lywoodese, a "sneak preview" consists of springing a' new movie on an audience which had gone to the theatre to see another film. NBC's "sneak" is about as unsneaky as it s publicity department can make it. On another front — show categories — there is also semantic confusion. Press agents for a new NBC entry, "Star Trek," recently issued a release proclaiming that it was not, definitely not, science fiction, but "real action-adventure in tomorrow's space a g e -" "It is good science fiction," declared the star of the show, William Shatner as he sat, dressed in a modified "Batman"' costume, explaining that he plays the captain of a military spaceship that "patrols the outer reaches of the galaxy." Shatner, last seen in television in a short-lived CBS disaster called "For The People," is another in the growing group of actors who, while still bowing reverently to Shakespeare, has) made an adjustment to commercial television with its rewards and security. His "For The People" two seasons back was received well by the critics but as a midsea- son CBS entry it never managed to surface in the important Nielsen ratings. Shatner, a Canadian, got his start in Ottawa's National Repertory Theatre, moved on the Stratford, Ontario, Shakespeare Festival. He has played on Broadway and starred, in live television drama. But now as Captain Kirk of the space ship in "Star Trek" he owns a piece of the action, which, if the show is a success, is like a lovely annuity. The three networks turned in slick, professional if routine jobs in the difficult job of covering the Johnson-Nugent nuptials on Saturday. The problem, as in the coverage of space shots, was the long waits between the glimpses of the principals. If there were holes in the reportage, it was in the fashion-knowledge of the reporters. Even the expert women, great at identifying the celebrity wedding guests, were fuzzy when It came to the important chores of describing authoritatively what the bride and members °1 the wedding party wore. before Congress that the unit j General Dynamics, while cost of the Fill would be about; Grumman Aircraft Engineering $2.9 million. i Corp..

General Dynamics offered identical parts. The plane and its weapons system also are behind schedule. The Pentagon said the "F111B and Phoenix schedules have been revised to provide for a more optimum weapons system development.
