NBC To Allow Pre-Reviewing by JAY SHARBUTT NEW YORK (AP) -- Snidely Foon, the noted television crit ic, returned tanned and fit the other day from Camp Rerun, a summer study facility set aside for TV critics by the three net works. He was sighted staggering down the boulevard under load of network press kits for the 1974-75 season. The CBS kit the largest of the lot. tilted hirr far to starboard. It weighec four pounds. "What's new, chum?" he gas ped as he set the kits down. "Haven't you heard? NBC is allowing pre-reviewing this sea son." "Godfrey Daniel," breathec Snidely. "What is that?" "Pre-reviewing means you get to review the shows in print be fore they're on the air. ABC and CBS hava allowed it for years." "Why not NBC?" "They wanted to surprise the audience. TV critics have been fighting NBC about this foi years. They say it violates thi constitutional system of checks and balance. "Besides, everyone knows a program's no good unless a critic says it is." "So why'd NBC give in? asked Snidely. "Some Chicago critics wrote nasty stuff about the old policj and a reader sent NBC an ry post card. Under this kind o pressure, NBC couldn't really do anything else but give in.' "We have that kind of power hey?" said Snidely, a wicke glint in his eye. "Think I'll ra 'The Waltons' this year. Alway wanted to do that.' ' "But that's a CBS show." "The network is unimportani The show is what counts, learned that at Camp Rerun." And Snidely added: "All th critics at the camp had to lear how to spell 'profoundly mov ing.' And that wasn't all. "On the last day, a felle from New York came up an showed us what to do when couldn't figure out, say, a original drama with thre damns and a nude scene in it. "What'd he tell you?" "He said you always write 'With this production, televisio comes of age.' " With that, Snidely Too picked up his network" pres kits and lurched off to NBC t put the knock on "The Wa .tons." Average Cost Of House Now Set At $24.700 By JOHN CUNNIFF NEW YORK (AP) -- Accord ing to a popular saying, man of as could not afford to bu the house in which we now live because its market value ha risen so much faster than ou paychecks. In January 1972 the averag price of a standard single-fam ly house was $24,700, accordin to the Department of Com merce. In March of this yea the same category of housin had a price tag of $35,800. The more than 40 per cent in crease in housing compare with roughly a 10 or 1 per cen increase in median family come during the same perioc thus making it much more di ficult for prospective horn buyers. A similar situation is deve oping in regard to automobile In 1955 the average reta selling price of all new ca was $2,830, and median fami income was $4,421. From that high mark, th percentage of income needed buy a car fell fairly steadil reaching a low-of 32.6 per cei in 1973, when the average ca price was $3,931 and median i come was $12,051. That meai a new car cost 64 per cent of year's income. Now, however, the swiftly a cclerating prices of cars seem to he forcing a reversal of th trend, according to Gold ma Sans Co., the securitii house. It estimates that the pe centage will reach 33.7 for 197 with median family incon around $13,000 and new prices averaging $4,380. In 19 it foresees a percentage of 3 based on income of $13,900 an an average car price of $4,370 Suggestion WASHINGTON (AP) -- Th United States should supp rice to flood-devastated Bangl desh, two Louisiana congres men said.
