NEW YORK (AP) - With
three news shows in the week’s
Top 20 - an extraordinary
number in a period normally
dominated by entertainment —
CBS won the networks’ prime-
time ratings race for the fifth
consecutive week, figures from
the A.C. Nielsen Co. showed.
CBS’ “60 Minutes,” no
stranger to the Top 10, finished
the week ending June 21 in
seventh place, with Part II in
the five-part documentary
series, “In Defense of
America,” tied for 17th, and a
special edition of ‘‘Walter
Cronkite’s Universe” 20th.
CBS had seven other
programs among the 20 highest-
rated, including “M-A-S-H” in
first place for the third straight
week, and compiled an average
rating of 13,9 to 13.5 foe ABC and
12 for NBC.
The networks say that means
in an average prime-time
minute, 13.9 percent of the
nation’s TV-equipped homes
were watching CBS.
The rating for “M-A-S-H”
was 20.6. Nielsen says that
means of all the homes in the

By LOUISE COOK
Associated Press Writer
It costs money to keep money.
That’s the lesson consumers
are learning at many banks and
savings and loan associations.
Government regulations on
fees and charges in some areas
have been lifted. At the same
time, rising interest rates have
forced the financial institutions
to pay more to attract deposits.
That has boosted their costs,
and the “free” accounts of the
1960s and early 1970s are
Bank of America, which is
based in San Francisco,
recently announced major
changes in savings and
checking accounts. Starting
July 1, any holder of a passbook
savings account whose average
daily balance drops below $200
will be charged a $3 fee. There
also will be fees for what the
bank calls 'excessive” with-
drawals — more than three a
quarter — from any account
with a quarterly balance of less
than $400. The bank also will
offer fewer types of checking
accounts. Minors generally will
be exempt from the changes.
Other financial institutions
are taking similar steps. The
Central Savings Bank of
Maryland, for example, an-
nounced in April that it would
stop paying interest on
passbook savings accounts with
balances of less than $100,
except for those opened by
children. “It used to be that the
cost of money was low enough
to permit us to carry these
accounts, but we can no longer
carry them,” said Thomas
Brightman, vice president of
Banks and savings and loan
institutions traditionally could
afford more free services for
customers of small accounts
because the amount of interest
they paid on deposits was less
than the amount they charged
on loans. Depositors who kept
large sums of money in the
bank earning little or no in-
terest made up for customers
who had only a few dollars on
account. But today's con-
sumers, particularly those with
a substantial sum to invest,
have taken their money out of
low-interest passbook accounts
and are putting it into high-yield
certificates of deposit and
money market funds.
“As we pay people what their
money’s worth, the Robin Hood-
like subsidy provided by bigger
depositors is disappearing,”
wrote Joyce Healy, vice
president of Manufacturers
Hanover Trust Co. in New York,
in an article in “American
Savings accounts aren't the
only bank service subject to
new fees. Bob Walters of
Sheshunoff & Co., an Austin,
Texas, consulting firm in the
area of banking, gave these

about 10 percent of the nation’s
banks offer completely free
checking accounts, down from
50 percent less than five years
—Overdraft charges. A
survey of nearly 2,400 of the
nation’s 14,000 banks showed
that all but 95 charged a fee for
checks written on accounts with
insufficient funds. Fees ranged
from $4 to $10.
—Safe deposit boxes. Fees
range from $3 to $60 a year, with
most between $25 and $40. High

tally — and 16.8 for Part II, then
fell progressively through the
Part III on Tuesday night was
No. 33 in the ratings, with Part
IV tied for 39th place and the
fifth installment in 48th place.
Only two programs among
the 20 most-watched — ABC’s
"20-20" in 12th place and
Universe” on CBS — had not
been broadcast previously.
Other original shows did not
fare well. CBS’ "Opryland
Night of Stars and Future
Stars" tied for 29th place, and
"America’s Junior Miss
Pageant,” also on CBS, was No.
NBC had four of the five

Bigger proves to be much better
when you 're looking for a toad mate
By MARCIA DUNN
Associated Press Writer
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Go ahead, ask any female Fowler’s
toad who’s worth her warts and you'll likely get the same response:
Bigger is better, when it comes to choosing your mate.
Ohio State University zoologist Lincoln Fairchild will give the
same answer — from a toad’s standpoint, that is.
“Bigger is better, it turns out," said Fairchild, who’s been
studying the communication patterns of toads and other animals
for more than 10 years.
Fairchild heads Ohio State’s Borror laboratory of Bioacoustics,
which houses more than 21,000 animal sound recordings. He
believes his theory is not only probable but also provable.
“There are few cases where you can show where animals are
choosing mates for their physical attributes, not for the real estate
they own or the car they drive — except in Fowler’s toads," he said.
Fowler's toads, found in the eastern United States but rarer and
smaller than American toads, are about 2% inches from nose to
vent and live up to eight years. But unlike other toads and frogs,
Fowler females are attracted to males by the volume of the male
mating call and, consequently, the volume of the male body.
“There's no data to show that larger is louder, but the pulse rate
differs with size," Fairchild said, “Larger males have slower pulse
rates, which can give the perception of a louder frequency. And
females can tell the size by that speed.’’
Fairchild, 35, began his work with animal communications as an
undergraduate student at Duke University in North Carolina. His
original interest was in herring gulls, but he turned toward toads
“in search of a simpler system.”
“I was again looking initially at interference, how do animals
deal with noise? Not just environmental noise, but sounds that their
neighbors also produce,” he said.
In experiments, Fairchild watched as Fowler females hopped
toward the larger males’ songs, rejecting the cries of the measly
males. The smaller toads tried to outsmart the females by waiting
on the bank to snare unsuspecting ladies bouncing by - or by
squatting on colder spots, thereby deepening their croaks.
Toads’ sound vary with temperature, Fairchild said, with colder
temperatures producing slower pulse rates. So it’s a mad scramble
for the coldest spots, whether in water or on shore depending on the
night and the time of year.
“It’s hard to think that a small toad thinks, ‘God, I’ve got to get
my cold spot tonight.’ But the smaller toads are more successful
(at attracting females) in cold spots," he said.
In the world of Fowler’s toads, where males outnumber females
100 to 1 at most breeding spots, you do whatever needs to be done,
Just what kind of voice does it take to lure the females?
“It’s not very melodious, but it’s effective, I guess,” he said. “It’s
a harsh, nasal sound, very directional. Sort of like ‘NN-
The breeding season for Fowler’s toads lasts from April through
June, much longer than the two to three weeks for American toads.
That’s one reason why female Fowlers can afford to be choosy,
Still, why do the females push aside the puny toads and hold out
for their heftier brothers?
It’s not that the larger Fowler males are macho - they don’t
defend the females and young. It’s not that they’re more aggressive
— they’re not the combative type. And it’s not because the smaller
toads can’t fertilize as many eggs — they can.
“What you’re left with is that the larger male is imparting
something to its offspring,” he said. “It’s purely genetic....A larger
individual is one who has either grown faster or is older, and I have
a sneaky suspicion that it’s the growth rate rather than age that
attracts females. It demonstrates that as an individual, you have
survived, you’ve undergone a lot of ordeals and can hack it.”
Fairchild has expanded his study to the albatross and frigate
birds of the Midway Islands. But he keeps trailing the still unan-
swered questions: How loud must a mating call be before it’s
heard? What happens when the environment changes or when odds
favor the males? Do poor croakers score?
For Fairchild, however, the most important thing is not whether
the toads win or lose, or even how they play the game.
“The greatest significance is not that toads do it this way or that
way, or any other animals, or how it pertains to people," he said.
“What is important is that it gives us a system to work out some
of the relationships between different mating systems. If you know
something about the social interaction of Fowler’s toads, you know
something about the total environmental picture.”
Here’s what’s next.
