BY MATT ROUSH Entertainment Reporter Texas In Cincinnati? Sounds a little odd, but such was the case Monday afternoon when four cast members of the soap opera "Texas," which premiered at 3 p.m. Monday, appeared on the "Bob Braun Show." And how's this for a coincidence? One of the four "Texas" stars was former Fun Bunch performer Randy Weldner. (The other actors from the new Procter & Gamble soap were Lee Patterson, Llsby Larson and Ann McCarthy.) NOW KNOWN as Randy Hamilton, the 33-year-old entertainer has finally hit his stride since he left the 50-50 Club for sunny California in August 1975. He left to accept an offer from Dick Clark to host a syndicated dally TV dance show, but the program was canceled after 40 shows. For a considerable period of time, he -survived on commercial work and occasional return stints with Braun. Then In January 1979, he became host of a children's show, "Bananaz," for Warner Communication's Columbus-based QUBE cable system, but the show stopped taping last September. ; So it was back to Los Angeles, his act- -ing workshop and commercials. "After 'Bananaz,' I was in the process of getting a new agent In the commercial business, that means you have to go around and re-establish yourself and let everyone know that you're still available," Hamilton said. "For a couple of months there, it was basically going to the acting workshop three days a week and that led to a lot of readings for movies and soap operas." Which of course led to his role in "Texas," which represents Hamilton's first steady acting Job. "I was lucky with 'Texas,' because It's new and I'm not Just filling a role that people can associate with another actor," Hamilton said. HIS ROLE begins Wednesday, although he was seen several times in the RANDY HAMILTON last two weeks In episodes of "Another World," from which "Texas" is a spinoff. Hamilton plays Rlkki Dekker, a young deputy in the county surrounding Houston. The Dekker clan, you see, was orphaned at an early age and was taken In by the Marshalls, a family big In oil and ranching. In the next few weeks, Rikkl will show an avid Interest In stock car racing. His hero Is adopted big brother and ex-racer Justin Marshall, who has laid down ' the racing helmet after the suicide of his father. In an episode yet to be filmed, Rlkki will take part In a race which will be broadcast with Justin at the microphone. And of course, there will be a love Interest a Nita Wright, who works in Rikkl's Aunt Maggie's restaurant. "You might say she's my 'Miss Right', or rather 'Mrs. Right.' You see, she's married, but there's no hanky-panky yet, Just the interest." 740 Today 00 John Davidson 1040 Mike Oouolas 1140 Wheel of Fortune 11:30 Password Plus 12:00 Card Sharks 12:30 Doctors 140 Days of Our Lives 240 Another Work) 340 Texas 440 Tom & Jerry 4:30 Carol Burnett 540 Santord & Son Channel 54 Covington, Ky. 3:30 National Urban 740 MacNeiLetirer League Convention 7 30 Dick Cavett 540 Mr. Rogers (40 New Refugees 5:30 Electric Co. 940 Nova 640 Zoom 1O40 Flambards e:30 GED Channel 64 Cincinnati, Ohio 5:30 22 Atve 1 30 NBC Newt 740 Joker's Wed 7:30 SuDvans 40 Sheriff Lobo 940 "From Here to Eterni ty" 1140 23 Alve 11:30 Tonight 140 Tomorrow 240 22 Atve 230 "David Copperflekt" 9:55 News 10:00 700 Out 11:30 Journey to Adventure 1240 "Abraham Lincoln" 240 Perry Mason 340 Casper and Friends Channel 3 Pay TV 740 "Le MagnlMque" 1:30 "Hard Times" (PG) KENTSMERrTSMAHLB0R0wlNST0NVAHTGE8ENS0Ni iPON.rDON TLIGHTSIJSHTS09ESN TBtBPES UGHTg 3 IT! :ITISHAUEITlEmuEITIITIiaVEm: Warning: The Surgeon General Has Determined That Cigarette Smoking Is Dangerous to Your Health. msst aetoo9 TAREYTON Tareyton's unique charcoal filter is why. 5 mg.

A spokesman for one of the defendants, Columbia Pictures Industries of New York, said only that the government action was "not unexpected." The Justice Department civil suit, filed in U.S. District Court in New York, charges that the five firms agreed to establish a network program service to be called "Premiere," which would distribute and license motion pictures to pay-television systems and network program services such as Home Box Office, Showtime and The Movie Channel. THERE WAS no immediate comment from the other four companies. However, Burt I. Harris, chairman of Premiere, issued a statement that said in part: "Premiere and its affiliated companies are confident that the proposed service does not violate any antitrust laws. We will vigorously defend that position in the courts. We are confident that these issues will be resolved satisfactorily for Premiere. At the same time, we will continue to take the necessary steps to as sure that our programming will commence as scheduled." Premiere was formed by Columbia, Getty, MCA Inc., Paramount Pictures Corp. and 20th Century Fox, the complaint said, and was to begin business Jan. 1. THE FOUR movie firms license movies to nmi.Tv cvciomt ami nptwnrk nrocram services in addition to making movies for showing in theaters and creating television programs. Getty nas an 85 interest in Entertainment and Sporis Programming Network, Inc., which offers sports programming to cable television. Th nit. chnrirps that bv the terms or tne agreement signed last April, the four movie firms will give Premiere a nine-months head start in distributing theatrical films over other programming firms. It alleges also that the defendants will deter mine their fee from Premiere and also the price that Premiere will charge pay-TV systems to carry its network program services. The suit says that movies that enjoyed highly successful theatrical runs are frequently offered on pay-television up to a year before they are shown on broadcast TV and they form an important part of the programming on services such as HBO, Showtime and The Movie Channel. The latter offers only movies, the suit said. It added that during 1979, 77 of HBO's programming, and 85 of Showtime's programming consisted of movies. Under the agreement, said the complaint, Premiere would immediately obtain exclusive showings from the four movie companies for such pictures as "Kramer V. Kramer," "Coal Miner's Daughter," "The Electric Horseman," "The Jerk," "Chapter Two," "All that Jazz," "Brubaker," "Star Trek-The Motion Picture," "Friday the 13th," and "Urban Cowboy." The agreement will have the effect of raising and fixing prices and to maintain them at artificially high levels, the government charges. today in history BY ASSOCIATED PRESS Today is Tuesday, Aug. 5, the 218th day of 1980.
