Baxter eel a quietly professional iife a: .he University of Southern Cali- 'ornia.. Then he started giving Shakespeare lectures on TV. Egad and zounds! The profe sor's wholelile changed. As many as 400,000 viewers were estimated to be watching the Sat. urday morning program. The Show's rating p assed that of Edward Murrow and even approached "I LovXi Lucy;"; Baxter was hailed to New York; to receive the Sylvania Award, as the base local ed ucation TV,, program. 'Ho appeared on Oh-inibus and way wUttcn up in national magazines. Last week he won two Emmys .n the TV" Academy awards and itole tho show. He received fan mail from actors like.-Brinn Aherno who wrote: -'The, show was beautifully staged and d'.'.'ivo.red. with an. :easj and charm : wnich must make any actor green with envy." Baxter' received other praire from his butcher,: a taxicab driver, an elevator man and popple who see liim on t he street. A retired admiral sent him a painting of naval Hags that spelled out "Operation Well Performed." His desk is a . mountain of mail. Until recently he was doing the TV program as well as conducting four English classes, a routine which he confessed was "hell on wheels." But the big, baW, jolly man doesn't seem to complain about his new MS. c, As his wife commented over the dinner . table; "It doesn't befall many men of your vintage to be accorded so much attention." The comfortably middle - aged professor is beginning his second Shakespeare course over the local BS outlet, KNXT. The first se. rics drew 332 students who took the one-unit course' for credit bv ?aying $12 and taking a f inal examination. There were r,lso 886 others who paid $5 to audit the course with a special study guide. Plans for the future might include a cosl-to-coast show, and no one could be more eiiiuusiaslic about it iha*i Dr. Baxter. "Looking at it from a cold-blooded standpoint, I feel there is a real market in commercial TV for this tind of program," he observed. It appeals to a large, middle- classed group which could be valuable to an advertiser. I don't go along with tho fallacy that TV must appeal to the mythical 12- year-old mentality. The aurlienco is not comprised of those who watch TV from the one-armed chairs of a lunch room. "The,-mail we get is from solid citizens. Their letters are literate; the sentences have verbs in them. "As yet, no one is making any money from the show. It is a co operative effort by the university e.nd CBS, The university feels that it is repaid if pershaps some pea pie are induced to think of it when sending their children to college. We had one letter from a woman in Pasadena who said that her ^on was against college.

The term "highball" in railroad work derives from early signaling devices which placed a large ball at the top of a pole when the track ahead was clear. Then the Republican Senate leader, Sen. Knowland of California, trotted out something which Eisenhower didn't approve. That was the proposal by Sen. Bricker (R-Ohio) to amend the cl .. $ amcndlrlonl invo ] V ed Supreme onstitutional r e s t r i ction on treaties and agreements. Those who urge it argue like this: states and individuals need for debate a proposed amendment which was not quite what Bricker offered but stile bore his name.

This attempt to write out a con stilutional amendment w i t houl more hearings and didsucssion has been criticized by some senators as a too-hasty attempt to make fairs, since the language some day might be given an inlcrpietation not intended now. Yesterday some constitutional lawyers—like John W. Davis—were quoted as saying they didn't know what the language in George's amdnement meant.
