Those were the identities Bud Grant, tie new CBS vice president, programs, assigned to Ihe three networks as he lalked about the CBS schedule for next fa)), outlining some changes in a few favorites and explaining some of what was done. ABC might object on the basis that aside from its kid- orienled family hour offerings, Ihe network also had big hits last season with drama in the form of "Rich Man, Poor Man" and "Family," but certainly Grant was correct in picturing comedy as the keystone to CBS' success, and the network is adding whal it hopes will be even more laughs in September. "CBS has been Ihe network for comedy and comedy is continuing heavy on our schedule next fall," Grant said, noting in passing thai Ihe comedy CBS broadcasts today is very different from the comedy of limes pasl. "Shows like 'All In The Family' and 'The Mary Tyler Moore Show' are very differenl from some years ago when CBS had a very successful string of comedies. "In those years we had 'The Beverly Hillbillies,' 'Green Acres,' 'Andy Griffith' comedies that were heavily rural. They've been replaced wilh shows that are more relevanl, urbanized. "One-liners are more important today. You don't do a comedy show by stringing a bunch of one one-liners loge- ther. But Ihe punch-up writer (he's the guy who specializes in one-liners) is very important in today's comedy." Grant said aside from the already announced new shows and schedule changes, Ihe old standbys are being reviewed and in some cases jazzed up to increase their appeal and prevent (heir drooping inlo old age, which is a falal affliction for television shows. This season Monday night was a big winner for CBS, but next fall there will be some changes made. "Phyllis," for instance, Hill be softened and made more sympathetic, Grant said. "Maude" moves into the -9 p.m. (Eastern time) slot to provide a strong lead-in for the new comedy, "All's Fair" — the one with Bernadelle Pelers then you'll like 'Guardsman cttAww POLISH The following prayer will be VOLUNTEER BUREAU Call: 757-9855 GET YOURS CARLSON'S Naugatuck 729-2251 May 16 to May 22 is National realize S2.7 million in revenues Volunteer Week.

Mrs. Norman Anderson Is shown al Ihe left. Al the right is Mrs. James Foi, Conservation chairman for the Woman's Club who made the presentation, ^ (NEW'SphotobyDonCousey) as a liberal photographer and Richard Crenna as a conservative Washington columnist. It's a Norman Lear comedy, so it will be loud and al least at first it will be controversial. The final prime time hour will be "Executive Suite," which sounds like a high-rise "Peyton Place." Grant countered by saying, "It's a serial, as 'Peyton Place 1 was a serial, but it's big city whereas 'Peyton Place' was small town. It's like saying 'AJ1 In The Family 1 and 'Beverly Hillbillies' were the same because they both were 30-minule comedies." Tuesdays, Telma Hopkins will play a bigger role on "Tony Orlando and Dawn," Grant said, and at least one — perhaps two — comedians will move in when it moves to the new time slot. Without "The Bionic Woman" to compete, CBS is hoping for a bigger audience. The remainer of Tuesday remains in place, with only production staff changes here and Ihere. Up against "Bionic Woman," CBS is throwing "Good Times," which he said hit hard times when "the Fonz" was moved up front on ABC's "Happy Days." Then there'll be "Ball. Four," followed by "All In The Family." Grant said "M-A-S-H" on Tuesday proved an excellent lead-in for launching "One Day Al A Time," and now CBS is moving "All In The Family" lo Wednesday lo lead-in Ihe sitcom "Alice." "The Blue Knight" will top off Ihe evening and now Bumper Morgan will acquire a sidekick. On Thurdays, it's "The Waltons" - Mary Ellen will gel married, John Boy will start a town newspaper and Molher Wallon will go in for adull education. Grant was hoping lhat with M i c h a e 1 Douglas - leaving "Streets of San Francisco," the competition would be easier for "Hawaii Five-0," while Barnaby Jones will hire his young male cousin lo pick up the pace and add sex appeal. Friday nights not only will present the new "Spencer's Pilots," but also movies that include some beauts — "Chinatown," "Paper Moon" and, for Ihe violence freaks, Charles Bronson in "Death Wish." The Saturday nighl comedy lineup remains in place, but Grant said "Doc" would be working out of a free clinic, assisted by a young black intern, in hopes of ironing out the dip "Doc" creates in the Saturday ratings. Grant was asked whether CBS was planning any blockbusters on the order of its extraordinarily successful "Helter, Skelter" tale of Ihe Manson family, but he would answer only, "I hope we are going lo come up wilh something hut I can't talk about it at the moment." HISTORIC CANAL WINDSOR LOCKS, Com. (DPI) - The Windsor Locks Canal, whose use dales back lo (he 1820's, has been enrolled on Ihe National Register of Historic Places. John Shanahan, stale historic officer, announced Ibe enrollment of the six-mile canal, which was hand dug wilh pick, shovel and wheelbarrow by WO Irish workmen. Once used by commercial vssels, today pleasure boats ply the canal lo avoid rapids on the Conneclicut Hirer. NOTICE Friends: In Ihe pasl few months, Valley Cable Vision has received an alarming number of service calls lo correct interference caused by improper connections to the cable. Subscribers call our office to say their cable pictures are not as good as usual. This means that we must send a serviceman out to determine the problem. It costs us money to send the serviceman out and takes lime away from his normal system maintenance responsibilities. This should concern our cable subscribers because if it costs us more to send our servicemen out on these problems, then, ultimately, it will cost our subscribers more. In addition, these improper connections mca'n that many television sets will have interference or substandard picture quality. Valley Cable Vision doesn't fed that our paying subscribers should have to pay more or have to watch substandard pictures because of other people trying to get our service for free. You can help us keep our costs down and keep the quality of your cable pictures as high as possible by telling any individuals wilh improper connections lo call our office to be connected to the cable legally. If they call, we don't intend to ask questions. However, if in Ibe course of our work we find anyone illegally connected to the cable, we will be forced to take action. Several people have recently been arrested and fined for receiving unauthorized cable service from us, without paying for it. The Federal Communications Commission and the Connecticut Public Utilities Conlro! Authority protect our paying subscribers from the abuses of improper connections. The Connecticut Slate Statute that deals with Ihis illegal activity reads as follows: Sec-Ma-l 19. LARCEN'V defined. A person commits larceny when, with intent to deprive another of property or to appropriate the same to himself or a third person, he wrongfully takes, obtains or withholds such property from an owner. Larceny includes, but is not limited to: (7) (3) "with intent to avoid payment by himself, or another person of the lawful charge for a telecommunication (cable television, telephone) service, he obtains such sen-ice or avoids payment therefor by himself or another person by means of (A) tampering or making connection wilh the equipment of the supplier, whether by mechanical, electrical, acoustical or other means, or (B) any misrepresentation of fact which he knows lo be false or (C) any other artifice, trick, deception, code or device." Valley Cable Vision would like all of our subscribers to know that we try very hard to maintain as high quality a cable television system as is technically possible but you can help us by encouraging all those with improper connections to call us.
