ALL EDITIONS 54 The Arizona Republic Phoenix, Thnrs., Jtme 18,1970 'Record 9 to cost more, but still be a bargain Associated Press WASHINGTON - It soon will cost more to subscribe to that unique compendium of official actions flfttl wide* ranging opinions — the Congressional ftecord. But lovers of printed Amer- icanna stlU will find it a baf- gain — $R the more if, like most of its present readers, they can wangle a free subscription. President Nixon has signed legislation permitting an increase in the subscription rate, set In 1880 at $1.50 a month. v . While thfe new amount has not been settled, it is likely to be between $2 and $4.50. The Record costs between $3.5 million and $4.5 million annually to publish — at $116 a page — depending largely on the length of the congressional session, and Congress underwrites most of the cost. Even with the increase, subscription income will not amount to more than 10 per cent of the cost. ' •A spokesman for the Government Printing Office, Wnich produces the Record, said 90 per cent of its 49,000 circulation is free. . -^ ,;:Each senator is allowed to IJUt 100 names and each representative 70 names on the subscription list. That accounts for 40,450 copies. Then, all the libraries across the country designated as depositories of government documents get free copies. Those who pay for the Record, mostly lawyers and businessmen with a special interest in legislation, get far, far more for their money than the account of Congress' proceedings, of which the Record, more or less, consists. More or less, because every member has the privilege of Cast of <Hair> tin U.N. tour UNITED NATIONS (AP) Eight young men and women from the New York cast of the rock musical "Hair" toured the U.N. headquarters' building esterday wearing bell bottom pants, leather jackets, turtleneck sweaters — and lots .of hair. A U.N. spokesman said they were invited because they had taken part in one of the performances that "Hair" companies in several cities gave June 5 for the benefit of the U.N. World Youth Assembly to be held here July 9-18. The benefit followed a pledge by "Hair" producer Michael Butler . to raise $250,000 — with a guarantee of at least $112,500 — toward covering the $700,000 expenses of the youth assembly. -rewriting, or even deleting, his remarks before they get into print. Moreover, any senator or representative can put anything he pleases into the RWotd by standing up and saying, "I ask unanimous cotlsent to revise and extend my remarks and insert extraneous matter." No one is ever cad enough to object. Accordingly, some fairly sulphurous exchanges on occasion appear in the Record transmuted into something like, "I think the gentleman Was mistaken." And much that was never said at all on the floor of either house gets in. In a single recent issue, picked at random, a devoted reader could enjoy, beside the official proceedings, disquisitions on such subjects as the site of the forthcoming , Olympic games, the length of government contracts for trash removal, and Romanian independence day. He could, if he liked, read the full texts of the three winning speeches in a fifth grade oratorical contest in Tuscaloosa County, Ala. If he was interested in personalities, he could peruse an account, favorable, of the voting record of Rep. John J. Rooney, D-N.Y., and a tribute to the basketball coach of LaSalle High School, Philadelphia, Charles O'Brien, retiring after 36 years on the job. This is by no means a complete list of the contents of a single grayish, small-type issue of the Record, which averages more than 200 pages. Unless the Senate or House sits really late, well beyond midnight, GPO has the Record, revised, extended and trimmed by its 535 congressional editors, complete and ready for distribution the following morning. This is the product for which a few people pay — and will soon be paying more.
