MALOY TIMES Washington But-Bau WASHINGTON -- Here is a roundup of news items gathered jn the nation's capital oy the staff of our Washington Bureau. Congressional consideration of legislation requiring that new- radio sets be capable of receiving FM stations precipitated a philisophic debate in the Senate on the proper role of the federal government. Sen. Boh Dole, R-Kan., called the legislation "a glaring and disturbing example of the Bin Brfo'her mentality at work in Congress." Sen. James A. McCIure, R- Tdalio, branded the bill as a "busybody" law which will take a w a y s o m e f r e e d o m from Americans. The sharp attacks on the legislation surprised its supporters, who thought they were doing something to he'ln the consumer. The bill, which was eventually approved 44 to 42 by the Senate and sent to the House, is similar to a measure enaeicd in 1962 which required that television sets be able to pick up both VHP and UHF channels. . The legislation would require thai rHdin sets selling for more t h a n $15 he able to pickup both AM and FM stations. All AM radio frequencies have . been allocated in the U.S. and any new stations which come on the air will lie FM. Proponents of the bill wanted to m a k e sure listeners could pickup those stations, and reasoned that the requirement would reduce the price of AM KM radios, just as the earlier TV bill brought down the price of sets equipped to telecast both VHF and UHF stations. Arguing in behalf of the bill. Sen. John Pastore. D-R.l., said the consumer is now being "gouged" by high prices on AM-FM radio sets. But liberal Michigan Sen. Philip Hart called the bill "an exercise in elitism." And conservative New York Sen. James Buckley called it "blatantly anti-consumer legislation." In view of the close Senate vole, the fate of the bill in the House in uncertain. BIRTHDAY PARTY: ..The nation's capital will celebrate the 198th birthday of the United States in a big way. Highlight of the Fourth of July fete here will be a massive fire works display on the grounds of the Washington Monument staged by the National Park Service. The f a m i l y style event will also feature entertainment, free balloons and lemonade for the kids. Meanwhile, a 10-day Festival of American Folklife will be underway on the Mall nearby, featuring exhibits and demonstrations of folk arts and crafts from throughout the nation. N O I S E CONTROL: ..The public generally associates the Environmental P r o t e c t i o n Agency with efforts to clean up our polluted waterways and dirty air. But EPA also has authority over "noise pollution" and has recently taken the first steps High Court Turning Toward Strict Constructionism Enlists James S. HoldDn of Route 2. 'ayetteville, has enlisted in the ,ir Force. Upon completion of he six-week transitional train- ng course, he will receive tcoh- ilcal training at the electronics iptitude area, at Keesler A i r 'orce Base, Miss, WASHINGTON (AP) -- The Supreme Court, ending its 1973 '4 term facing an historic ruing on the powers of the presi dency, appears to have turned n the direction of .strict con structionism, a goal sought by J rcsident Nixon. The term just ended, with the sole exception of the upcoming W a t e r g a t e , related case, narked the first in which Nixon's four appointees served a "ull term together. The four handed together 100 imes out of 142 cases on which lecisions were handed clown. Whenever the f o u r justices agreed, they w r ere always able 0 muster a majority. The court continued lo curtail or refused to extend hroadened protections for criminal defendants which it laid do.wn in the 1950s and early 1960s. In this area at least, Presi- lent Nixon appears to have urned the court in the direc- ion he indicated he wanted vhnn he premised to appoint 'strict constructionist" jus- icc.s. In other fields, notably in matters affecting First Amendment guarantees of freedom of peech and of the press, the \ixon court has been more lib- :ra! this term ( h a n some criti- :al observers had expected. WOMEN'S RIGHTS In women's rights, it has come up with mixed results, re- luiring employers to root out a s t wage discrimination gainst women workers but reusing to reciuire the coverage f normal pregnancy in state U s a b i l i t y programs. The court avoided or delayed tiling in its two biggest cases ffccting racial minorities. ft t u r n e d aside as moot a hallenge to law school admis- ions policies which gave pref- rence to minorities, citing the act ( h a t the student challeng- ng the policies had been admit- ed under court order and yould soon graduate. The qiies- ion. which could also affect affirmative action" programs 1 industry and elsewhere, is cnsidc-red certain to come up again. An appeal from a lower court order approving cross-district busing in Ihe metropolitan Detroit area was left hanging as the court disposed of virtually all its pending cases last week It could be decided when the court returns July 8 or put over to next term. The court's scheduled business for July ft is a hearing on the President's efforts to shield White House tapes and papers from Walergate prosecutors on the basis of executive privilege. In the criminal law area, the court thrice either cut back or refused to expand the right to legal counsel. POVERTY R U L I N G Tl said poor defendants who have been supplied with free lawyers to appeal their cases and have lost are not entitled to another free lawyer lo appeal again. It said states may require in- digctits who have received free counsel to pay the slate back when they are a"hle to do so. And it held that prison authorities need not permit in m at es _to h a ve law ycrs with them during disciplinary hearings. fn dealing with free speech the court held that a state can- nol prohibit a person from dis playing a peace symbol on a U.S. flag on his private property. It also struck down a Mas sachnsetts law against contemptuous trealment of the flag and a New Orleans ordinance against reviling police in the performance of (heir duties. Newspapers scored a major victory when the court unanimously ruled that states may not require them to provide free space to political candidates to answer editorial attacks. Such laws, in effect in Florida and Mississippi and being considered nationally, were held an unconstitutional infringement on freedom of the press. rJBRL RULES The court ruled, however, i h a L newsmen do not have a constitutional right to inlerview prisoners. H also changed the libel rules to make it easier for arivate individuals to sue. Veteran Justice William 0. Douglas retained his title as the court's champion dissenter, ei- :her writing or joining 61 dissents. Justice Lewis F. Powell Jr., the next to junior member of the court in years of service, had the least dissents. Fie was on the minority side only Jl times. Douglas, who during ihe term set the court's record for years 5f service, was joined in dissent tn times by the two other most iberal justices. William J. Brennan and Thurgood Marshall. On the whole, it has been a :erm short on drama and his- :oric decisions -- at least so 'ar. Summing it up, one Washing- ion attorney who mafces a careful study of the court said: "Tt was as though they breathed a sigh of relief at having gotten rid o fine biggest problems lv- ng arouTrd. .inch as obscenity and abortion, and decided it wouM be an easy working term with just a couple of bie issues. And then one d a y , Mr. Ja- worsld walked in the door." toward regulating products which il believes make urban living too noisy. The agency issued a report which identified 20 products which contribute to noise pollution and announced its intention to draw up regulations designed to quiet them down. C'licf offenders singled out by EPA were medium-sized and heavy duty trucks and porlable air compressors. CONSUMER RIPOFF: Two Ohio congressmen have raised their voices against legislation being rushed through Congress to help the ailing livestock industry. Both Sen. Howard Metzen bauni and Rep. Charles A Vanik branded the legislation a ripoff of the consumer. The Iwo Ohio Democrats are among a minority of the lawmakers to oppose the bill. Low meat prices are causing them to lose money on raising livestock, the industry cliiirns, and the legislation would set up a program of government- guaranteed loans to help the industry. The bill docs not safeguard consumers, said Metzenbaum, who noted Congress look action last fall when meal prices skyrocketed. Vanik had a similar complaint. He said, "The consumers and taxpayers of America should not be compelled to bail out the cattlemen whose gre[l of last year brought them to the problems of today. The bill to aid the cattlemen was whipped through the Senate only six days a f t n r it was intro duccd and is now pending in the House. FOREIGN VISITORS: You are likely to encotinter more tourists from abroad traveling through the U.S. this summer. Several dollar devaluations have made it cheaper for foreigners to corne to 'his country. Last year, for example, a lolal of 3.6 million visitors from overseas came to Ihc Univjd Slates, a 24 per cent increase over the previous year. Foreign tourist's spent $4 billion here during 1973. H o w e v e r Americans a r e continuing to travel abroad large numbers. About 6.9 million Americans wen 1 , overseas last year. HOUSING PROGRESS: The F e d e r a l Housing Administration, born in the depression as an agency to help Americans become homeowners, ohsei'ved its ·loth birthday last week FHA guarantees morlage loans made funds lo purchase homes, fts existance is credited wilh changing America from a nation composed lergely of renters to one in which a majority of families own (heir own home. Since its founding June 27, 1934, FHA has insured loans for 11 million homes. 24,000 apartment projects and 31 million home improvement projects. NEW YORK (AP) -- The sur- eons open u man's or woman's chest and take out a sick heart. They replace it wilh a mechanical heart, perhaps ordered by number and model from the hospilal stockroom to suil the patient's particular needs. It will pump life-sustaining blood Tor years without failure. This is a tantalizing goal of American and Soviet medical research teams who have joined forces in an agreement, announced Friday, seeking to develop artificial hearts for humans. The stage is set. Small calves, similar in size :o humans, have already been kept alive for several days with artificial hearts placed in the chest and powered electrically om the outside. "We have arrived at the stage of feasibility to reach for tolally compalible artificial hearls, although a greal deal more work is needed," says Dr. [/owell T. Harmison, an aulhor- ity on artificial heart research who says, "It is a formidable task." Artificial hearts would have at least two advantages over human heart transplantation. There would be no waiting for a suitable donor whose blood type malched. There would be no problems of foreign lissue rejection. The new Soviet-American agreement "expands Ihe opportunity to exchange information in different laboralories. with different approaches. It will enhance the quantity of available knowledge, and the timeliness to further the research," Dr. Harmison said.
