Page 14 Edie Adams She's Out There Pitchin' HOLLYWOOD - With spring rolling along. Edie Adams, television's third most recognizable personality (ranking behind Lawrence Welk and Carol Burnett), is on the road, appearing at cherry festivals, hyacinth rallies and other garden galas. She tosses smokes to the gents, playing the sexy, funny cigar lady from Hollywood who is accepted by wives because she's not a threat. Housewives' tolerance may sting Edie a bit, but continual renewal of her Muriel cigar contract is a soothing balm. The lady's humor becomes the pacifier, along with her familiarity. By now, sport fans are conditioned to the inevitable Adams smoking commercials during the football and basketball season. Like the car com- I EL3 Iu3 EZ3 tl I AUTO RADIATOR a I 1619 N.

Year after year the same people watch Miss Adams do practically the same commercial, and they must enjoy it, because the sponsor doesn't dare change the formula. No point in tampering with a proven winner. It may surprise some people that Edie is ranked No. 3 as television's most recognizable figure. Without a regular show. Miss Adams does it on commercials, managing to beat out such old-timers as Arthur Godfrey. Even Edie finds the information a dazzler. saying "I'm not a metropolitan personality, but in the Middle West the reception is fantastic when I go into stock company or clubs."

The traveling saleslady has many irons in the fire, either making a personal appearance, a club date, or checking on business ventures like Edie Adams Cosmetics, a door-to-door trade, or Adams beauty salons dubbed "Cut 'n' Curl," in existence since 1967. Like most traveling salespeople, Edie has had her fill. "I want to stay home with my fantastic 3-year-old son," she said with a sigh, "and be a rich hippie." With a schedule like hers, Edie can't survive on old disorganized ways. The widow of Ernie Kovacs used to be late for everything, but not any more. Her most valuable possession is a little red notebook which she carries everywhere, containing appointments, concise notes on contracts and deals, and one-word clues to ideas worth remembering. Once, Edie left the book in London's airport, and in panic, dashed back to retrieve her "bible," missing the flight out, a small matter in comparison. The little red book also contains warning clues such as: "Look out, full moon." 3 Insurance Furnished ... ..'...tic missi...
