First Teachers Eve Big Help Say 7J :fftf V By WAYNE OLIVER NEW YORK (AP) Actress Eve Arden is Just a funny schoolmarm to most television . viewers and radio listeners, but to teachers she's a champion for their profession. Statuesque Miss Arden, Connie Brooks of "Our Miss Brooks," explains it this way: The cracks on the show about low teachers salaries and equipment shortages are regarded by teachers as a big help in making the public aware of the plight of the nation's school system. "The constant pin-pricking we do with humor draws interest,", she related during a stopover here en route back to Hollywood from a European vacation with her husband, actor Brooks West. "I do believe this prepares people for legislation that helps teachers." AND ALTHOUGH the prime purpose of the show is humor. Miss Arden said she believes it also serves another serious purpose. "It helps children to realize that teachers have their own problems outside the schools." Meanwhile, she declared, there have been no objections from teachers because of the comic and often ridiculous situations in which Miss Brooks becomes involved. And she has received a number of PTA and other citations for her portrayals. On the other hand, she continued, many teachers write, "how true to life Osgood Conk-lin (Gale Gordon) is just like our principal." Miss Arden said the program appeared to have a wide appeal beyond teachers it evokes nostalgia among older people, pupils like to compare their own teachers with Miss Brooks, and pre-school kiddies watch to see what school will be like and just for laughs. ALTHOUGH SHE'S perhaps the best known schoolteacher in America, Miss Arden never taught school professionally. "But when I was in grammar school at Mill Valley, Calif, by the time I was in the seventh grade I had substituted for the teacher in every grade, including the seventh," she related. Besides, Miss Arden gets plenty of professional advice from her school teacher fans who bombard her with mail, so if she begins to act un-school-teacherish, she'll hear about it and fast. day problems were worked out in a complete schedule of programs highlighted by sports shows and a novel disc spinning show. Platter Panorama. Test patterns have been on the air' most of the last week, since the station's 37-foot antenna was emplaeed Antry foot tower on South Mountain. The tip of the antenna, station' officials said, is 2,857 feet above sea level. Other programs on today's schedule are a second Gene Autry show at 8 p.m., with guest television performers from Tucson and the West Coast; and two films. "Of Mice and Men" will be shown at 5 and 8:30 pan., and "The Young in Heart" at 6:30 and 10 p.m. Highlights through the week include local variety shows, Amos and Andy, sportscasts, Art Linkletter, newscasts, and CBS film-programs. " The joint enterprise, unique in the nation with its common studios, technical staff, and channel but separate programming and sales organizations, is the Phoenix area's third television outlet. Running the sharetime show are Richard Goebel, director of television for KOY, and Jerry Burns, who holds the same post for KOOL. Channel 10 headquarters is at 511 W. Adams. Facilities include a large studio with household and outdoor sets; a smaller studio for such shows as newscasts and interviews; control room, director's booth, film library and editing room, makeup room, and various staff, business, and executive offices. INSTALLED in these quarters is the complicated collection of cameras, control equipment, lighting fixtures, and telecasting devices necessary to get a program from the studio floor or film surface to viewers' living room screens. The South Mountain transmitter's effective power of 33,-000 watts, beamed from Arizona's highest television antenna, is expected to bring many new viewers into the Channel 10 audience. Other key men of the operation are Miles Reed and Hal Diecker, producer-directors for KOOL; Bud Lilly, executive producer - director for KOY; Walter Styles, engineering supervisor; and Cliff Miller, chief engineer. Sports got the station off to a fast-moving start last night along with Abbott and Cos-tello, Platter Panorama, and two movies. From the sports world came professional and college football highlights, boxing, wrestling, and football scoreboard reports. !MfMi$ta-: fel liilif fllll'l tall w:?
