r The~Ma!akoff News, Thursday: Feb. !9,19.81-'-1~ By BOB GUILIANO Communications Cam- Robert E. Lee said in that the FCC seeks to American Telephone and (AT&T) "to be in the Led) business, them a monopoly." FCC begins to deregulate the businesses that have been known as "telephone into fields such of news and in- Businesses already in those Such as newspapers, contend have ready ac- ough telephone lines were installed while the company was still a was interviewed at a reception him and his wife Saturday role as guest speaker Creek Lake Chamber of The reception was held at Gibbs' Ranchito del Lago and the banquet was at the Cedar Creek Country Club. The FCC's recent "Computer lI Inquiry" decision, under appeal by the American Newspapers Publishers Association (ANPA), permits AT&T to go into additional communications- related business activities through a separate subsidiary. AT&T and Southwestern Bell will test this decision with a home-information experiment they plan to launch this June in Austin. The telephone company will install video units in selected homes in Austin and then provide ad- vertising information to those homes. The information will travel over telephone lines to the video display unit. The experiment is designed in part to determine consumer and advertiser attitudes towards such a video.tex system. The Texas Daily Newspaper Association (TDNA) has filed a formal complaint with the Public Utilities Commission about the experiment. Lee said that the FCC's decision "asserted jurisdiction over com- puterized data communications...Any new service that AT&T goes into, it must file a tariff with us - a tariff means what they're going to charge for the service. The tariff goes into effect unless the FCC sets it for a hearing. In effect, we do have jurisdiction over anything they go into." Lee also commented on why the decision is ambiguous: "Any order as complex as Computer II Inquiry almost necessarily is ambiguous, and in some cases may be deliberately so. It becomes a process of appealing to the courts. Over a period of years, after deliberations, the courts clarify what those provisions mean." Lee explained why AT&T would have to establish a separate subsidiary: "They have to set up another company, which they may own. But that is so they cannot subsidize a new service through the telephone user and have the tele.phone user pay for it and thereby block competition. "AT&T would own all the stock in the subsidiary, keep separate records, and have a separate beard of directors. It would be a complete division, except the profits, if there are any, ultimately go to AT&T." Lee delved into how a Supreme Court decision, in a case started locally by Tom Carter, opened the door to the concept of attaching electronic gadgetry, including computers, to telephones. This has been described as a multi-billion dollar industry, ac- cording to Lee. "That was forbidden before that court decision, " Lee said. "AT&T had a complete monopoly and could say who could go on that line because of claims of possible interference or electrical harm to people. "That has proved not to be the case. We have certain standards of the type of equipment that may be used. Anyone with a new invention who goes into business has to file the electronic specifications with us. These must meet certain guidelines to protect people from harm." About proposed telecommunications deregulation on the federal level, Lee said "there's a mood in Washington, particularly with the Reagan ad- ministration, to get the government out of business as much as possible. "As far as the FCC is concerned, I think we detected the mood of the country before the new adnlinistration. We've been going down that line. You can look for more and more withdrawal from business practices of the federal government." Lee added that withdrawals will be expedited by budget limitations that the new administration puts on. "They will cut our budget so we can do less things; that will help further deregulation," he said. :i:i$ !!iiil ,:..... o.. ,.%%. Robert E.

"My guess is it'll take us a year or more - we'll have a lot of discussion on this before we make a decision. I'm saying it'll be about 3 to 3~/2 years before this new technology will appear." A question was asked about the FCC's stand on protecting radio and TV stations so they won't disappear. In respbnse, Lee remarked that "under current law, we are forbidden to cen- sor. We have taken the position of hoping the market place will take care of this. We alI want entertainment; whether or not it will take another form, I don't know. "I do not see us protecting stations to the extent that we take government action to keep them on the air. If people support them, they will stay on the air."

"Some of them are of a social nature," he said. "But they serve a purpose - providing a forum for people to get together and discuss the purposes of this organization. And this also serves as the all-important fund-raising func- tion." Finley added that this year the chamber will "take initiative in working with cities in the chamber service area and with the chambers of commerce in surrounding com- munities. We'll establish common goals for the betterment of the Cedar Creek Lake community and work to ac- complish those goals. "I urge you to be with use and support us in 1981. I promise the chamber will work for you." approves this concept ,iG Coureee of continuing education County Junior College changes in 1981: that have been cancelled inating World of and Advanced Cake in Palestine; PreNatal Supply Attendant, and Workshop for Co- Skills for L.V.N.
