I Some folks believe ''.at should rate a headline any. day. After all, hasn't television's Ben Casey; been written up by alliterative magazine writers as the "dour, doctor" and "surly surgeon"? Not to mention "morose medico." Is he really an angry young (33) man? "I think people sometime;; confuse an actor with the role he plays," he says in his own defense. "Sure, I can get mad when things go wrong. But I can also make a joke as well as anyone." Edwards is more in a laughing mood these days, and why not? "Ben Casey"- is sailing into its second season with the stamp of success. (This alliteration has got to top.) One of the reasons Edwards is happier than last season is that this time he is getting a larger piece of the action. He staged a sitdown last spring until his bosses came up with A new deal. He scoffs at the idea that his action comprised • ingratitude. Merely the workings of the free enterprise system, he argues. "I didn't mind working the first season at a nominal fee," he reasoned. "But after the show had. Pagt 3 1'll.y Tologrnm Saturday, October 20," 1962 proved itself, I figured I was due for a share. "It really doesn't seem so great when you figure the entire cost of production. Take a look at some of the other beneficiaries. The agency that packaged the show gets a fee of 10 per cent of th c weekly cost, which runs about $140,000. Thc advertising agency collects 15 per cent of the total COSi. "So an actor's foe of $5,000 a week seems kind of small when you figure out what others are getting." Who's Going f o Pay Repair Biff? JOPLIN, Mo. (AP) — For six hours Friday, Joplin police hunted a car reported stolen, only to find it parked in thc same spot from which it was taken. Mrs. Carl Larson parked in the 100 block on East Seventh, put the key above the visor and went to a beauty parlor." When she returned* the car had vanished. Tommy Moore also parked his car in that block. He telephoned a garage to pick it up for repairs. The key, lie said, would be over the visor. You guessed it. The Larson and Moore cars are identical. When Mrs. Larson got her car back, its cooling system and ra- d i a t o r were completely overhauled. The nation's commercial forests support 1.3 million fulltime jobs in the wood using industries.
