AMCANM* 'Spoon River Anthology' Was One Of The Best Hours On Television By CYNTHIA LOWRY NEW YORK (AP) - -- Network television's big attraction Monday night was CDS' special ad aptation of "Spoon River An tholocy." The challenge for the viewer was to stay with the TV REX BLISARD Medals Awarded Family Of Gl Killed In War SILOAM SPRINGS - Posthumous awards including the Purple Heart were presented to the f a m i l y of Spec. 4 Rrx Wayne Glisard at their home in Siloam bprings Friday. Presentations were made by C n l . Kuitene J. Holmes, profes- set through the hours that preceded the broadcast. NBC for instance, laid on an entire evening of rapeat.sjiows --two specials that hard-core viewers probably had already sat through and then a feature movie rerun. CBS also was solidly hooked with reruns up to the arrival of "Spoon River." That left one with ABC, which did have a trio of shows with fresh material. The first. "The Avengers" is now on its last legs, and the final survivor of the high-camp, tongue-in-cheek shows. Nothing, alas,, is deadlier than that combination once the viewer has had an overdose. The episode was a jolly, joke filled hour about body-snatching. Then came "Peyton Place," which, if one is not a faithful communicant, is like straying into a foreign land without guide or phrase book. "The Outcasts, a western also playing out its string, was full of fists and hostilities, as usual. WORTH THE WAIT But the CBS special was worth the struggle. The colelc lion of epitaphs hy which poet I Edgar Lee Masters told the sto- ;ries of the people in his imagi- i n a r y Illinois town of Spoon Riv er was given unusual and effective treatment. A company of four versatile aetors and two folk singers sat or stood on a s.tage whose simple background suggested the cemetery on the hill about which Masters wrote. The actors--Charles Aidman. Jason Rohards, Joyce Van Patten and Jennifer West--took turns reading their stories or delivering their messages. Some were funny and others :tragic. There was irony, senti- nt. mischief and even a bit of history in the stories of the Mir of Military Science at the Spoon River folk.

PORTRAIT GALLERY With nothing more than a hal. a shawl or a change of voice, .hey were able to present a por- .rait gallery. We laugbled at a ipn-pcckecl man who couldn't lose his wife: suffered for the young soldier who died in a Phi- .ippine jungle: sympathized with the runt who. when he became a judge, "made it hard" for tall men who came before him. The short s.lories were broken up with frequent musical moments by Hal Lynch and Naom Caryl Hirshhorn. They fitted the varied moods nicely. Aidman was basically respon slble for the whole hour. It was he who puller! the material into dramatic form and who directed the program. The program was quiet, effective and far, far off television's usual track.

A bootblack was pleased to get a nickel tip because that ivas 50 per cent over what you iiad paid him for the shine. The only people who owned Iwo-car garages were those who Iiad converted them from two- buggy barns. MEASLES Instead of trying In avoid measles, parents thought it war a good idea for the kids to have them and Ret them over with. It was doubted whether the infant commerical aviation industry could succeed if it didn't continue to provide parachuto? for every passenger. You eould buy a pretty good house for what it now costs to send a kid to college for a year. Whether you had voted for him or not, your congressman on request would send you a free packet of garden seeds each spring. Children yelled "Beaver!" ev- crytime they saw a white horse or a man with a beard. Only men told naughty stories in mixed company--and the} were frowned on.

Hopefully, we can get a nationwide new SLANT on the drug problem, if all you interested students out there will cooperate. Do write! --H. GREENVILLE. Tex. (AP) Fletcher Warren, U.S. ambassador to Turkey before his retirement in 1%1, hai been elected mayor of this northeastern Texas city by fellow members of the City Council. Warren, now teaching at the East Texas Statt University in nearby Corn- Dear Helen: Because you have shown concern for the nation's increasing narcotics menace, I would like to bring to your attention the efforts of young people in Hudson County, New Jersey. Encouraged by civic officials, teen-agers in high schools and junior highs have formed an organization known as SLANT-"Students' League Against Narcotic Temptation." Although yet in its early stages, SLANT has shown great promise and lias become an energetic community endeavor. Student leaders of SLANT intend it to be a preventive, not a rehabilitation venture. Therefore, we are inviting members of police departments, repre- sentutives of l o c a l Health Board, and ex-addicts to give talks at our schools. They are most cooperative. In my town. North Bergen, town meetings are regularly held to keep the parents informed of the dangers illegal drugs present to their youngsters. I would like to emphasize that the chief reason for the success of SLANT is that the students operate it. I would be happy to receive letters from interested readers who want to learn more about our organization, perhaps with the hope of starting a chapter in their own schools. --Dennis E. Rhodes. Dear Dennis: Thank you for telling us about a n organization w h i c h I'm sure will catch hold in many schools. The Silent Majority is finally making itself heard and this, 'more than anything else, ill perhaps bring the Wavering Minority back to reason. For further information about "Students' League Against Narcotic Temptation" --please sent a stamped, self-addressed envelope to: BENNIS E. RHODES. 506-80th Street, North Bergen, New Jersey. -H. Dear Helen: Your letter to "Scared" who thought he had VD, stated that in his State "Your parents will {have to know if you are under I age." More and more states are changing this law. for it sometimes frightens juveniles away from needed treatment at venereal disease clinics. In California, since October, 1968, minors 12 years of age or older can be examined and treated for VD without parental consent. This is a service performed by Departments of Public Health at clinics throughout the State. The law states in part, "The consent of the parent, parents, or legal guardian of such minor shall not be necessary to authorize hospital, medical and surgical care related to such disease, and such parent, parents or legal guardian shall not be liable for payment for any care rendered pursuant to this section." -- California Pub lie Health Doctor Dear Doctor: Thank you for clarifying my somewhat understated answer. Here's an added note to those who suspect they may have contacted a venereal disease: Call your Public Health Department or your family doctor and ask information on VD clinics near you. While physicians and health clinics make reasonable attempts to involve parents of minors, in many states these days, your secret will be kept, if you so request. -- H. This c o l u m n is dedicated to family living, so if you're hav-i ing kid trouble or just plain trouple. let Helen help YOU. She will also welcome your own amusing experiences.
