This has led the FCC into an other side issue, a proposal to limit the amount of time devoted to any one network in cities with only one, two or three television stations. Those concerned have been given until November 13 to file comments and suggestions with the commission. NBC is expected to make the loudest protest that this is less an anti-monopoly action than it is an abridgement of free enterprise and a penalty for being good. An FCC survey of 17 cities with a single television station, made in May, showed that NBC programs occupied about 65 per cent of the time. The rest was divided be tween CBS, 19 per cent; ABC, 11 per cent, and Du Mont, 5 per cent. WMAL Notes Passing Of Quarter-Century Mark WMAL passed a notable mile stone last Thursday—its 25th birthday—and in celebration of the quarter-century of progress it will start regular tele casts tomorrow from the former Chevy Chase Ice Palace. The new address will be the originating point for “Hollywood Matinee,” at 2, and Ruth Crane’s “Modern Woman.” at 3, on WMAL-TV. When it went on the air on Oc tober 12, 1925, WMAL was the 15 watt voice of the M. A. Leese Op tical Co., and it was in operation for all of three nights a week, an hour each. On March 1, 1933, it was grown up enough to became the local outlet of the Blue Net work of NBC. It was bought by The Star in 1938 and the license was transferred to The Evening Star Broadcasting Co. on January 1, 1942, when the Blue and Red Grace Reformed Church COMPLETE SERVICE BROADCAST WASH-FM 11 A.M_97.1 MC.

The new company took over complete management In August and put j the station in charge of Kenneth H. Berkeley, who has been head man there ever since. Shortly before the 22d birthday on October 3, 1947, the station's television affiliate, WMAL-TV, went on the air. Several months later. May 15, 1948, the station’s service was rounded out with the addition of WMAL-FM. The new est project, offices and three tele vision studios at the old Ice Palace, is expected to be completed around the first of the year, when all TV activity will move there. 'Kukla, Fran and Ollie' Have a Birthday, Too Also celebrating an anniversary last week was Burr Tillstrom. whose "Kukla. Fran and Ollie,” nightly WNBW joy, started a fourth consecutive year on tele vision on Friday. Mr. Tillstrom did his first TV work in 1939 at the New York World’s Fair.
