Judging from the mail bag. the public doesn't like it. The history lesson comes as a 1-1-part film series on tlio Hitler period, with each installment running about one hour. To most non-German viewers it seems like an objective documentary. The series does not spare Teutonic sensibilities. Letter writers seem to agree Nazi extermination of Jews was wrong, but the producers say other comments are "frightening in tlieir connotation." "We were ready for almost anything from the crackpots," says co-producer Main?. Huber, "but the reaction we're getting comes from a cross section of German society." He adds t h a t his "only hope is that those who don't wrile approve," HUBER and associates in the state-operated TV spent one year gathering m a t e r i a l in Germany and foreign archives. Another year and nearly $3 million were needed to put it together. Entitled "The Third Reich," it is seen by perhaps four or five million viewers. Some letter writers accuse the producers of trying to spread concepts of the German's collective war guilt. Others suggest ullerior motives. "They want to know who's paying us--the Russians, the Americans--even the chancellor (Konrad A d e n a u e r ) is mentioned as a possible backer," said an official connected with the series. Others think the f i l m fails to give the Nazis credit for wiping out u n e m p loyment and for organizing youth. irti * I THE LETTERS from a third group are characterized by two distinct thoughts: 1. The Czechs and Poles deserve no sympathy for their war-time s u f f e r i ngs. This goes back to the old Hitler charge that they mistreated Germans living within their boundaries before the war. 2. The Versailles T r e a t y after World War 1 levied unjust penalties ~bn Germany, creating a hostile atmosphere conducive to Hitler's rise. ., GAIN GUARANTEED RESULTS LOW MONTHLT RATES STEAM MECHANICAL MASSAGE 15 YEARS OF EXPERT INSTRUCTIOH AMERICAN GYMS AND HEALTH LONG BEACH I 2228 ATLANTIC GA 7-9213 \ ; [ NORTH LONG BEACH 1117 E.

I'm hoping next year to do another show. Would I leave TV for it? Yes, but in a way it's good to leave it---so you don't wear your welcome out." Miss Burnett achieved a lifelong ambition when she opened in the comedy starring role of "Mattress" here in 1959. It had taken five years of work and struggle. She came here in 1954 and got a job as a hatcheck girl. "U was a sort of Dolly Dainty Restaurant, with a men's grill downstairs," she recalled. "The check room was on the street floor, and you had to sort of trip the men to make 'em give you their coats. 1 couldn't stand to see all those quarters going downstairs. "Another girl and 1 shared the job. We each worked three days a week. We split the tips--got no salary--and made about $30 a week apiece. We were living at the rehearsal club (the famed Theatrical Club about which the play 'Stage Door' was written) at 518 a week for room and board--so I had $12 a week left to squander." * ' * * MISS BURNETT LEAPED to national attention in 19;17 through three sudden TV appearances. She had started in July in an act at a nightclub in which she sang a comedy song titled "I Made A Fool Of Myself Over John Foster Dulles."
