Try Sun Classified Ads The Sun's TeleScope By CYNTHIA LOWRY AP Television-audio Writer NEW YORK (AP) — Network television's almost-official recipe for eating cake and having cake at the same time has now- been made public. Robert E. Kintner. in his long letter of resignation as NBC's board chairman Friday said in part: "To trade up the quality of nighttime programming, I suggest that there should be greater pre-emption of regular prime-time schedules by special programs and that network •managements must be prepared from time to time to sacrfi'.ce over-all rating leadership in favor of an increasing number of dramatic entertainment programs dealing with controversial social, economic and political problems." John C. Schneider, shortly before he was elevated from CBS network president to vice president in charge of broadcasting of the parent CBS organization, said that he thought there was less excitement in television these days and that people were talking about it less. The solution, he said, was to stimulate more interest by presenting special programs — dramatic, documentary and cultural. The theory, which has been quietly in practice for some time, is to build the big ratings and produce happy sponsors with "Bonanzas" and "Lucy Shows" and "Batman," while breaking te rhythm occasionally with something like "Death of a Salesman." the Lunts in a biographical drama or a recreation of Custer's last stand. Television, while it is most concerned with reaching a big mass audience with run-of-the- mine shows, still doesn't want to lose completely that smaller group of listeners and viewers that Schneider recently called "the opinion makers." One program designed to stir up the opinion makers was Friday night's "Sixteen in Webster Groves" which pre-empted a dramatic series. This was a documentary focusing on some of the 15-year-old high school pupils in a prosperous, upper-middle class St. Louis, Mo., suburb where half the families have incomes of more than 510,000. These were not the sullen youngsters so often studied by television — the slum kids, the drop-outs, the problems. These wer e teen-agers aiming for college, concerned with their social lives and their parents' opinions of them. Making good grades, getting along with others and coping with parents seemed to be their deepest concerns. Girls seemed concerned about their dates, i Boys worried about getting intoj college so they could earn a good living later. Charles Kuralt. the narrator, seemed worried that 99 per cent could identify Dick Van Dyke but only 20 per cent knew Ho Chi Minh. He also seemed concerned that] these children of affluent, secure and suburban America were growing up with limited or lofty goals.
