Page Eight HOI'K (ARK.) STAR WIN AT BRIDGE Fall's screen will have more action heroes (Clint Walker in Kodiak) Coming TV season: some, but different by DICK KLEINER HOLLYWOOD - (NEA) Crime continues to be rampant, but nostalgia, women and the great outdoors are gaining. That, in a nutshell, is the report on the 74-'75 television season opening in September. Because last year was pretty much of a disaster - "The Year of the Dog," the TV brass is calling it — there has been a major shake-well of the TV schedule by all three networks. At this time last year, because of the writers' strike, the season was a shambles. Maybe that's why the season was such a dud. Maybe it was just because last season's new shows were losers. It's all hypothetical. Whatever the cause, last year was bad. Of the 20 new shows which premiered a year ago, only three - CBS'' Kojak, NBC's Police Story and ABC's The $6 Million Man — are back. The others are now history, and pretty forgettable history, at that. This year, there are 25 new programs, standing nervously at the post. ABC and NBC have 10 new ones each, with CBS adding five more. How do the three networks view the coming season? What do they see as the significant trends? NEA put those questions to program executives at each of the networks, and, predictably, got three different answers. "The significant thing this year," says Barry Diller, vice-president, Prime Time Programs, of ABC, "is the number of new shows. Twenty-five is a lot of new shows. It's the kamikaze approach, with everybody debuting the same week. We'll see some fast casualties, which is up- fair to all of the shows." "This is a critical year," says Perry Lafferty, vice- president, Programs, Hollywood, of CBS. "We'll see if The Waltons was the right show in the right place at the right time. Did the audience go for it because it represented better times, when values were better? "The Waltons was the only show in many years in which the hero did not have the power of life and death. We nave no franchise on that type of show, and that's the big news this season. If it works, it will open up the whole face of TV and open u dramatic programs to a' sorts of things.' For NBC, John J. MeMahon, vice-president, Program Operations, says that "this year, except for the fact that there are few variety shows, has as good a >alance as we've ever had. There's also a trend toward women as stars of action shows. In the past, these shows have depended on franchised heroes — cops, lawyers, doctors. Now that women are moving into those areas, it's easier to find shows for women. It's definitely a trend." All three are right. Diller is correct when he says that 25 new shows, all starting at the same time, are a lot. Nobody will ever be able to see them all, and the ones with the biggest public relations campaign will probably win. Lafferty is right, when he says that there are imitators of The Waltons coming. In one form or another, each of the networks has a Waltonesque show on the boards. And Mciyahon is right, in his view of the trend toward i up all using women. There are three action shows on the schedule which star a woman — Angie Dickinson in Police Woman for NBC, Jessica Walter in Amy Prentiss, also for NBC, and Teresa Graves in Get Christie Love, for ABC. In the Walton mold, or perhaps the better generic term is nostalgic shows, there are CBS' Sons and Daughters, NBC's Little House On the Prairie, and ABC's Paper Moon and The New Land. Crime shows, of course, continue to be prevalent. We'll have a spate of new ones. CBS has Ken Howard as Manhunter, another private eye. NBC has James Garner in The Rockford Files, more of the same. A net ABC has three of them, plus the previously mentioned Get Christlie Love. They are David Janssen as private eye Harry 0, Darren McGavin'as-Kolchak - The Night Stalker who tracks down weirdos and kooks, and Robert Forster as Nakia, an Indian who is a deputy sheriff in New Mexico. There are a few new series which are trying to plow new ground. NBC's Born Free and CBS' Planet of the Apes both come from very popular movies and will try to recapture that popularity on the home screen. Born Free is part of an outdoors trend. In that same broad area are NBC's Sierra, dealing with park rangers, and Kodiak, an ABC series dealing with life in Alaska. There's a new lawyer about to practice on TV - Barry Newman as Petrocelli, for NBC. There are a couple of truck drivers about to wheel out for a weekly adventure — Claude Akins and Frank Converse in NBC's Movin' On. And there's a teacher ready to do his thing — David Hartman as Lucas Tanner, another NBC entry. New comedy shows are scarce. CBS has Rhoda, with Valerie Harper spinning-off from The Mary Tyler Moore Show, and The Paul Sand Show, with Sand as a symphony orchestra bass player. NBC has Chico and the'Man, an ethnic (Chicano) tale of an Anglo garage owner (Jack Albertson) and his Mexican-American helper (Freddie Prinze). And ABC has another black comedy, That's My Mama, plus another one set in Texas, Texas Wheelers. That's the new season. Wear it in good health.

Dr. Lamb Heart problems of rheumatic fever By Lawrence E. Lamb, M.D. DEAR DR. LAMB - My lather died at age 4.7 from rheumatic heart disease. He had rheumatic fever as a child. When I was 7 1 went to the doctor with him for four months and took some medicine. After his death I didn't go to the doctor any more. My mother said I had rheumatic fever, but I have never been restricted in activity and have led a healthy and active life. I've never had any symptoms. I'm concerned because I've heard of people dying from bad hearts because the heart was damaged by rheumatic fever in childhood. I have had routine examinations and two chest X rays where I work. If my heart was scarred or damaged in any way by rheumatic fever Would this show on the X ray? Is there any test I could take now to show definitely that I had rheumatic fever as a child or not and how much damage it has done? I'm 20 years old. Should 1 have any symptoms now or what symptoms should I have had as a child? DEAR HEADER - About the only way to tell if you had rheumatic fever as a child now is if it left any heart damage. Rheumatic fever may not cause any heart damage. The heart disease is a complication. The sequence goes something like this. A slreplococ- cal infection ("strep throat") m ay be foil o w e d b y rheumatic fever — or it may not. If you have rheumatic fever as a complication of the strep throat then you may get the complication of heart involvement or you may not. If the heart is involved it may have residual damage that c a n p r o g r e s s t o c a u s e changes in the heart later — or the heart may recover completely. Your father's illness began as a child, with a streptococcal infection. Such a strep infection is contagious. The rheumatic heart disease ho had afterward is not con- tagious. Apparently he was about 40 when you were born, so he would not likely have had anything that was contagious for you. You can have rheumatic fever with few, if any, symptoms. The diagnosis sometimes has to be made upon an examination of the heart and certain blood tests. In other instances it causes fever, red hot swollen joints, generali/.ecl evidence of an infectious disease, and, if the ; : heart 3 is acutely involved, a variety of heart problems, including heart failure. If the heart is involved, even with an unrecognized case of rheumatic fever, in later life the valves in the heart may be damaged. Incidentally a lot more can be clone for these problems today than was possible even 15 years ago. In mild cases it takes more than an X ray to see the problem. The X ray may be entirely normal, but the doctor can hear a murmur or abnormal sound from y o u r heart beat. T h e electrocardiogram can also be helpful. In cases with severe heart damage or seriously affected valves then the size and shape of the heart may be changed so thai it is apparent on X ray. Obviously, if you h'ave no valve damage or significant damage to your heart it is unlikely that you would have any symptoms. Certainly if you have no symptoms and have never had any health problems you should not limit your activities in any way. Knowing that your father did not have a contagious disease when you were a child, that you were a child in the age when rheumatic fever was being prevented by antibiotics, and your Jack of problems. 1 loo doubt .you ever had rheumatic fever.

Pest problem getting worse LITTLE ROCK (AP) - Insect problems are increasing in most crops in Arkansas, according to the Arkansas Cooperative Extension Service. The agency said in its weekly report that crops advanced closer to maturity and that land preparation began for the fall planted grains and cooler season grasses. The report also said that crops in most areas of the state could use some rain. Here is a report on the status of various crops: COTTON — The crop was in fair to good condition and the fruiting rate was good. The activity of bollworms and weevils increased. Bolls were opening in the early planted fields. Production is expected to be nor- mal in most areas. RICE — The crop condition remained good. Heading continued in rice fields and some harvest continued on early vari- ties. Yields were reported to be good to excellent and the quality of the rice was good. SOYBEANS — Remained in fair to good condition. Yield prospects were variable. Early varieties were nearing harvest. I^ater varieties needed rain. Insect and disease problems were minimal. CORN — Corning was in fair to good condition and nearing maturity. FRUIT and VEGETABLES — Watermelon harvest continued with melons generally being small. Grape harvest began. I,ate tomatoes continued to progress. Okra production has improved since recent rains. Harvesting of peas was in progress. TAX & POOL 1 Atil.l S MONTGOMERY.

Brown, 31, of Little Rock was sentenced Tuesday to 42 years for stealing an air conditioner. Judge Richard B. Adkisson of Pulaski County Circuit Court issued the sentence after finding Brown guilty of burglary and grand larceny. Adkisson sentenced Brown to 21 years on each count. The terms are to be served consecutively. Adkisson said each sentence was the minimum possible under the multiple offender statute that provides for increased sentences on proof of previous felony convictions, of which Brown had four. Brown contended that a man stopped him as he was driving and asked him to load up the air conditioner and take it to another location. The police arrested Brown in the process of taking the air conditioner. The unit was allegedly stolen from the Ives Head Start Center here. —Hi- a courteous driver.
