They're and start splashing painting rainbows, goddesses, pyramids, clouds-the biggest, gaudiest mural in Hollywood's gaudy history. But, what is it? "It's like a panorama of our cwn lives and the life of the world," says Seemon Posthuma, one of the four artists, all members of the Dutch recording jroup. The Fool. "Like here we have an ice *e;i. a polar sea. and up above are the nine Muses, and over there is like a desert and the pyramids that symbolize, you know, wisdom." · After months in the making, the painting is nearing 12.000 «quare feet and six stories high and should be completed by the *nd of April.

But the hour, by Ed di Blasio, was pretty shapeless and thoroughly unsatisfying from a dramatic standpoint. We were never able to care enough about the faltering paper or the people who worked for it--we didn't tnow them well enough--to become upset at their nlight. TIRED PLOT The story opened with labor presenting the newspaper's nanagement with take-it-or- leave-it demands. From the outset, it seemed a foregone con elusion that the paper, with declining circulation and advertising revenue, would fold. The story starred Barry Sullivan, playing the paper's middle-aged managing editor in a style reminiscent of "Front Page." The presiding over the newspaper's demise was not enough for an hour, however, so a subplot came along. A brash young reporter turned up some evidence that the managing editor's son was a drug pusher. Perhaps it was added to demonstrate that both the paper and its top editorial hand both had lost touch. E. G. Marshall had almost a cameo role as the publisher who decided to scuttle his sinking ship. When the hour was over, nothing had been determined except that a newspaper Was dead. The viewer left with the feeling that the program had stopped rather than that a drama had been concluded. LIVELY LECTURE It was followed by a superb CBS documentary, "The Japanese." which was a lively, perceptive lecture on the character of the people by former Ambassador Edwin Reischauer. Reischauer. now a college professor, said, "A nation doesn't have to be Western to be successful." and pointed out that the Japanese with "a thin veneer of the West." have found ways to handle difficulties, in eluding urban overcrowding, which we might profitably study. The most interesting portions of the hour showed Japan's colorful mixture of the old with the new--modern businessmen on a night on the town, frugging--in kimonos, high speed trains and efficient steel production in a land where men still practice swordsmanship and archery as self-discipline. Also shown was Japanese domestic life, with the man the undisputed head of the family and the woman's place still the home. It was a most successful pro gram-educational while cnter- jtaining.

Dear Helen: I'm a 15-year-old Boy with an unusual hang-up. My problem is that 1 never have anything to look forward to or anything to live for. I blame my parents because they started me off this way. Monday through Friday I go to school, do homework, household chores, and on Saturdays I help my f a t h e r and sister with housework w h i l e my mother goes shopping and gets her hair done! My parents, both teachers, are kind of "dead" anyway. They never play tennis or golf or ski with the family, and they have set my life in an awful rut. The real problem is that since I have nothing to look forward to. I procrastinate and daydream, so I don't finish my school work, and its wrecking my grades. I'm smart and am told I have high potential, but I don't know whether I can't study because I'm depressed, or depressed because I don't study. I know what you're going to say: Take up a sport. But how? I'm so terrible at sports that nobody will practice with me. I never really l e a r n e d any games as I'm not actually in terested in them, hut now 1 realize sports and recreation are mandatory for mental and phy sical health. Please give me some suggcs tions on how I can get myself back into the swing of things. --Wasting Away Dear W.A.

Dear Helen: I am 18 years old and this m a r r i e d woman is 23. We worked together last summer. She told me she was going to get a divorce. I saw her a lot after hours, and then she left me to take up with a gorid for nothing. Now I am a good friend of ier husband's, and have found out he isn't what she said. I feel r ;uilty about that affair, hut I don't really want to cause her trouble. She wrote and said rhe was sorry for dumping me. but I think it was because she didn't want, me in court for the divorce. K I tell about us. she will probably lose her three children as her husband wants to prove her an unfit mother. If I don't tell, he will hate me. and if I do. SHE will.

BOYKE NEW YOitK (AP) think one ol the greates'. gifts in life is the opportunity to work at something you enjoy doing," said Angela Lanshury. "It's this chance, and therefore they never experience a sense of the fulfillment of life." It was a loss to politics iiiid a gain to the theater when the British-born actress decided to follow her mother's example and embark on a career before the footlights. One of her childhood dreams- she is the granddaughter of George Lansbury. former leader of the British Labor party--was to become England's first lady prime minister. Miss Lansbury. currently starring in the Broadway musical. "Dear World." which gained tier a second Tony Award, has appeared in 70 films and numerous plays since she came to Canada as a w a r t i m e evacuee and got a S(iO a week jnb in 1912 doing impersonations in a night club. SPOTTED BY MAYOIt A year later she was w o r k i n g , C U M M I N ' S as a cosmetics salesgirl in a L n s ! A r k . (AIM nominations for her performances in "Gaslight." "The Picture of Dorian Gray." and "The Manchurian Candidate." Many film fans, indelibly ini- by her screen images, have automatically come to think of Angela as a crafty, wrinkled old lady--a Mrs. Methuselah. This rather amuses Miss Lansbury, a strikingly handsome, blue-eyed woman still in her early forties. OZARK OPRY Over 3 Hours of Country Music 7:30 p.m. Friday Night You Are Invited!

The remark is typical of Miss Lansbury, and shows why people in the theater are fond of her as "the professional's professional."
