Top view of television TV viewers are fed up with politics By CLARKE WILLIAMSON We've said it before a'nd we'll say it again (networks seem to be awfully slow realizing it): TV viewers are fed to the gills with politics. The rating for last month's Democratic Convention is, quite brutally, "awful." But who comes out even worse? None other than that' much ballyhooed player, Joe Namath, So-called "fans" could not stand the "Friars Roast" special on the athlete. These results came from balloting a number of big- league sports classics plus two other odds and end specials. The only one that saves its face Is the "All American Football Game" which comes off with a "good" rating. The game of tennis might as well be shown only to birds. As usual in our balloting, it appears to have little appeal for most TV viewers: A11 American Football * * * * TV LOG KTVI (ABC) 2, KMOX (CBS) 4, KSI) (NBC) 5, KETC 9.

Allen, Garden City, N.Y.: How come producers, big shots everywhere, think this clunker is popular and thus give him big roles and positions everywhere? No one I know thinks he deserves such adulation . . . From Rosemary Tebbets, Water- bury, Conn.: Joe has got to be the most capable athlete there ever was and a guy with so much sex appeal even Women's Lib would be ensnared by his charm. CONVENTIONS: From Tom Wilkins, Muskogee, Okla.: What makes these networks think TV viewers sit enthralled by their gavel to gavel coverage of the most boring jabber of any event in America? * * Monday September 4 . 5:45-4 6:00-4 11 6:30—2 4 5 6:35-2 8:45-2 7:00—4 5 7:15-2 7:45-2 8:00-4 8:15-? 11 8:30-2 30 9:00-2 News/Religion Summer Semester Telethon Thought for Today P.S 4 Focus Your World Farm Report/News Lone Ranger CBS News Today Fury Cartoon Carnival Capt.

Kilings blamed on Bi-State Transit James Q. Troupe, chairman of the Bi - State Transit Authority's Committee on Hacial Equality, called today for the company to be put into receivership in the wake of three killings Thursday night in a company garage. Three mechanics were shot to death as they worked in the garage, apparently by a black Bi-State employe who argued with them. Troupe said the shooting was the direct result of the employe's inability to get satisfaction from Bi-State in a grievance matter. Witnesses told police Samuel Blochton, 47, 5600 Clemens, St. Louis, came into the garage late Thursday night and shot James I. Story, 32, Arnold; Marvin Gray, 52, St. Louis County; and Donald Parrish, 30, of Webster Groves. Troupe told the Telegraph that "if management had taken measures to set up channels," blacks in the company would not have to resort to violence. Blochton is black, his victims white. Blochton has not been captured by police. "Union and management have to take responsibility" for the killings, Troupe said. Witnesses said Blochton came into the garage to pick up his paycheck, and started arguing with Story, a fireman. The argument reportedly was over a grievance filed against Blochton. which Story told him about. Blochton accused Gray of filing the grievance, but Gray denied it. Blochton then pulled a gun and shot the three men. According to Troupe, 'shootings and employes carrying guns are not rarities at Bi-State. "Before the shootings," he .said, "-10 per cent of the employes carried gun.s to protect themselves from the public. Now 60-70 per cent arc carrying guns to protect themselves from each other." He added that three times in the last three month, Bi- State employes have been involved in shootings. Mass gun - carrying by employes, he said," "could result in a shoot-out." Without identifying the man, Troupe said one of the whites killed Thursday night was a "very contemporary man," who understood the problems of black employes at Bi-State. '•We need a serious educational program at Bi- State," Troupe said. 9 cannon halls taken PROVIDENCE, H.I.
