George used to appear on TV with some frequency before he hit it big in films. Q In Flip Wilson's old show, did Flip play both Geraldine and the character of her boyfriend, Killer? I don't recall ever seeing Killer but my friend insists Flip played both parts. O.F., Sacramento, Calif. A Killer was an off-screen presence and never appeared in a sketch. Flip may have his own TV series once again next season. It would probably be a situation comedy with Flip playing his gallery of characters, including Geraldine. Q I heard that repeats will begin in January. Is this true? Mrs. H.E., Charlotte, N.C. A Last year, some shows began reruns in early March, but I haven't heard of any series planning to begin repeats as early as January. Q I say Howard Cosell has to be over 50, but my friend says he is younger. What's the final tally? L.C., Winnipeg, Canada. A Howard Cosell was born in Winston-Salem, N.C, March 25, 1920, which will make him 57 on his next birthday.

HOME OF ROLAVENT ALUMINUM SHADES Q Is "Executive Suite" going to go off the air? I hope not. Is there someone I can write to? Mrs. T.B., Somerdale, N.J. A "Executive Suite" has not been officially canceled, but it is doing very poorly in the ratings. You may address your letter to CBS-TV Programming, 51 W. 52nd St., New York, N.Y. 10019. Q I have heard a silly ramor which just won't quit. Is Alice Cooper the actor who used to play Beaver in "Leave It to Beaver?" R.G., Dallas, Tex. A This rumor just won't die but it usually has Alice Cooper playing Eddie Haskell. Of course, the rock star never appeared in either role in "Leave It to Beaver." Q Is Elizabeth Taylor really going to star in a TV series? Isn't this a comedown for the big star? P.C., Wichita, Kan. A Elizabeth Taylor is one of the many stars in the forthcoming ABC drama, "Victory at Entebbe," scheduled to air Monday night at 8 on Channels 10 and 12. However, she has not been signed to star in her own series. Movie stars are no longer snobbish about TV. If the role is right and the money is good, many movie stars cross over to TV. Actor Julius Harris, who's appeared in such films as "Super Fly," is playing the role of Idi Amin, the part actor Godfrey Cambridge was filming when he died of a heart attack a couple of weeks ago. Q I usually don't write to columns like yours even though I read it all the time. I finally got up enough nerve to write and ask a question about my honey John Davidson. Is he happily married because if he isn't watch out! J.D., Toledo, Ohio. A You may be shy but when you make up your mind, you certainly come on strong. Alas, dear lady, John Davidson is happily married. Q I heard Maude is a mother in real life. I can't believe it. I thought she was one of those career ladies whose acting comes first. I'm so pleased to hear she's a mother. How many children does she have and how old are they? Mrs. T.N., Winter Haven. A Beatrice Arthur is not like the character of "Maude" in real life. She's a gentle lady who has been married to director Gene Saks for a number of years. They have two sons, Matthew, 14, and Daniel, 12. Q I saw Vincent Van Patten as "The Bionic Boy" in "Six Million Dollar Man." Is he the son of Joyce Van Patten and Dick Van Patten, two actors I have liked through the years on TV? Mrs. H.D., Memphis, Tenn. A Vincent Van Patten is Dick Van Patten's son, Joyce is his aunt; Joyce and Dick are brother and sister. Q My favorite actor George Segal .. . is he going to star in a TV special soon! I haven't seen him on TV except on talk shows. J.K.C., Philadelphia, Pa. A George Segal's films play on TV, but the actor doesn't make many appearances on dramatic spe- 5 YEAR ftllADANTFF I JkZ ftllADANTFF -zzzr KEEPS OUT THE SUN ADMITS FRESH AIR WHEN CLOSED KEEPS OUT RAIN (PATIO STAYS DRY) ADMITS DAYLIGHT WHEN CLOSED PRIVACY IN SECONDS BURGLAR PROTECTION (WHILE YOU'RE HOME OR AWAY) FINGERTIP OPERATION (FOR MOM OR JUNIOR) WHEN OPEN YOU AGAIN HAVE A FLORIDA PATIO.
