But Lower, who with his NBC and CBS counterparts met with House Speaker Carl Albert a.nd special four-member House committee to discuss TV coverage rules, said the fears proved groundless. "The rules they showed us were something we could have lived with," he said. "'For ex- to foreign shipments totaled $3.2 billion in 1972 according to the U.S. Com pierce Department.
