ALL EDITIONS 1«-A The Arizona Republic ruling called bar SSTs effect to rebutters of Nixon on climate held unsolved * > -V United Press International WASHINGTON - Many of the problems raised by the supersonic transport plane's effects on the climate cannot be solved by 1973 when a decision must be made whether to mass produce the airplane, according to a report made public yesterday by Rep. Henry S. Reuss, D-Wis. The report, prepared by the Transportation Department, said Environmental Science Services Administration (ESSA) is spending $15 million trying to determine the effect of the SST on atomos- pheric conditions. "Many of the problems being investigated are exceedingly complex and positive assurance of success by 1973 is impossible," ESSA administrator Robert M. White told SST Director William M. Magruder in a June 5 report. "Further, new problems may be uncovered; in many cases the new proposed program examines virgin fields of the atmosphere and its properties." "This is what many of us have been saying right along," said Reuss, an SST opponent. "We just don't know what impact the SST will have on the world's climate and, until we do, not another penny of the public's money should be spent on this plane." Although White noted that many environmental problems remain unsolved, he stressed that the ESSA project "should have answers to many of the questions about climatic effects from aviation by 1973." Reuss said, "This is small comfort when the government itself admits the decision on whether to mass produce the plane must be made before all the environmental questions are resolved." RHODESIA FETE OFF SALISBURY (AP) - Mayor John Lovatt canceled plans for a Nov. 11 Independence Day celebration marking the fifth anniversary of Rhodesia's breakaway from Britain. "The response was too inadequate," he said. WASHINGTON - An administration official said yesterday the Federal Cofcunoni- c at ions Commission's new equal-time ruling "refutes totally «w concept that anyone has a right to reply to the President" on the airwaves. The FCC was talking about Issues, not President Nixon's role as chief executive, in saying Friday that the major television networks must give time for presenting contrasting viewpoints to Nixon's statements on the Southeast Asia war, the official said. "In fact," he said, "the decision specifically rejects the request by the 14 senators for equal time to answer the President." The commission said the response to Nixon would be designed to present views contrasting with those he presented in five televised addresses since last November, but not to any single speech. "The fairness doctrine requires that the licensee who presents one side of a controversial issue afford the public a reasonable opportunity to be informed as to all other significant viewpoints on the issue," the FCC said. In addition to the senators there were complaints by the Business Executive Move for Vietnam Peace that tht net* works violated the fairness doctrine by refusing time to a responsible spokesman to reply to Nixon's remarks of JuneS. Rejecting fids, the commission said the complainants are "attempting to engraft an 'equal opportunities' requirement in fairness areas where it is wholly inappropriate." Such a concept could be equally advanced, it said, when a governor speaks or when a mayor addresses the community. The FCC said the ruling is not meant to discourage in any way the networks' presentation of presidential reports to the nation, but focuses on "continuing plans to deal with the continuing issue, in terms of presentations by both sides." The administration spokesman, who asked not be named, said, "The decision obviously won't hamper in any way the President's use of television but shall in fact quiet those whocomplain about it."
