HAYS DAILY NEWS I'AUK :i December 19, 1976 Not The Season T6 Be Jolly For Some TV Shows ly JOAN HANAUEIl JPI Television Writer NEW YORK (UPI) - It stems like something E5benezer Scrooge might do — dumping their follies just' when everyone else is decking the halls with boughs of holly. ' That's the economics of the television game, however, and with the new year comes' the so-called "second season," when" the networks try again in the spots that hit the bottom of the Nielsen ratings this fall CBS, which has gone from No. 1 to, No. 3 this season, had a lot of changes to make. The network already has an- nounced the dropping of some shows and now VTony Orlando and Dawn" and "Spencer's Pilots" from the list also. Added to the CBS schedule 1 hour-long , dramas and two new half-hour situation comedies, with seven other shows switching their time slots fora totally new look, but They Found Alternatives Better Than City Living MARIPOSA, Calif. (UPI)Five" years ago, Richard Coker supported his wife and three children as an assistant Los Angeles City planner. Today the Cokers live on the proceeds from their wood i toys, rubber band guns and facepainting. Everyone is happier. Coker, 34, and his wife, Jan, also 34, were among many young American families distressed by the decaying quality of urban life, yearning to move to the country. In June, 1971, after much discussion, the Cokers "piled the kids in a refurbished 1957 ambulance and set off. They were enroute to Yosemite National Park when they stopped in Mariposa County. A house was for rent' in Bailey Flats, a sparsely populated 'remote'valley 15 miles from Mariposa.' They took it. "I spent about six months doing virtually nothing, wandering around the hills .arid stuff and then we started to get it together," says Coker. They lived on unemployment and food stamps. His unemployment ran out. To still qualify for food stamps, Coker had to travel great distances to find work or become self-employed. He chose nervously to be self- employed and make wood toys — "I wanted to do something that was not going to disturb the ecology." Coker had a University of Illinois degree in design and graduate work in computei design technique. with a lot of the same old faces.
