On Children's TV Shows FCC To Consider Petition To Ban Commercials by JAY SIIARBUTT NEW YORK (AP) -- Somo- ime this fall, the Federal Communications Commission will consider acting on a 4V£*year- old petition by a parents' group abolish all commercials on children's TV shows. It's doubtful the commission will take that strong a step, says Larry Seerest, a legal aide U FCC chairman Richard E. Wiley, although "there's a whole spectrum of possible actions" it could take. The petition was filed by Massachusetts-based Action for Children's Television A c t , which claims 3,000 members nationally and is run by Peggy Charren, mother of two youngsters 18 and 10 years of age. Secrest says he has no idea what tht FCC will do about ACT's petition, but the threat that it will do anything already has prompted the powerful National Association of Broadcasters to take action of its own. The NAB, representing the three TV networks and 412 s'a- tions that subscribe to its tele vision code of standards, last July 1 -revised the section of the code dealing with "nonpro gram" material on kid shows. The NAB, whose code now allows a maximum of 12 minutes "nonprogram" material per, hour on Saturday morning k i d shows, is cutting that to 10 minutes at the start o[ 1975 and to 9% minutes when 1976 begins. The flV4-minule figure is the maximum allowed by the NAB for any hour during prime eve- ling time on network-affiliated stations. In addition, the NAB, which allows a maximum of 16 minutes of "nonprogram" material per hour on daytime kid shows jn weekdays, says it is cutting lhat to 14 minutes in 1975 and to 12 minutes in 1976. The NAB says stations which are code subscribers consider their adherence to its standards a s o l i d plus when applying to the FCC for license renewal. Those who consistently violate the code can be drummed out of the -ranks, but this rarely happens because such violators are rare, the NAB says. There are 285 commercial TV stations in United States which do not subscribe to the code and are not bound to follow its standards. No spec!tic date has been sel for FCC commissioners to del i b e r a t e on ACT's petition, which has'.been the subject o: lengthy hearings, oral argu ments and more than lOO.OOt letters from concerned citizens Meanwhile, the networks contend 'that without advertising here is no way they can continue to a i r quality children's shows, which can cost between $40,000 and $60,000 per half-hour ,o make. . Mrs. Charren calls this balderdash, adding: "We still feel tliat children are not the proper target for a product commercial and we'll always feel that."
