Y. Show People Moving to Hollywood's Spotlights By DICK KLEINER .'. HOLLYWOOD (NEA) -The great migration continues--New Yorkers moving, or contemplating a move, lo Los Angeles as more and more of show . business is c o n centrated ; hare. C a r o l Burnett a n d h e r /' husband, director Joe Ham; '· ilton, are expecting to make the move, probably this summer. They are both Californians -- Carol was horn in Texas but reared here and Joe is a native of Angeleno--and prefer it. Joe has been directing Sammy Davis' show, but that seems I WEDNESDAY 8:30 | $ 1flflfl 01 Msmmt $ GIVEN A W A Y S 10,IOO Jackpot OR $300.00 $200.00 $100.00 AND 8 $50.00 PRIZES to have had it, so there's nothing left to keep him in New York, cither. As for Carol's own hopes and plans, she has decided that what she wants to do is television specials -- I i k e Carol plus Two (Lucille Ball and Zero Mostel are the Plus 'Two) which you'll see on CBS on March 22-- and featutre films. "I don't really l i k e the stage," Carol s a y s . "The stage is an abnormal way of life -- I much prefer normal hours, I'm just not a night person." The three -- Carol, Lucy, Zero -- had never worked together before but formed a mutual admiration society. And Lucy extracted promises from b o t h Carol and Zero that they would appear on her own show next season. LOVELY* Nancy Kovark who is killed off in the first eight minutes of ''The Silencers," considers herself lucky. She walked out after her death scene. "I didn't know," she says, "when I made the picture, that it was going to turn out to be so full of dirty innuendoes." P E T T I C O A T 'junction's Lori Saunders had to take a big salary cut to become a television star. But it was in the nature of an investment, she figures. Before she was tapped to play Jo Jo (well, she's one of the Jos), she was a top model for television commercials. You probably remember her as the original Dippity Doo girl and on TV spiels and countless others. "1 made so much more with the commercials," Lor says. "But the change was worth it, 1 think -- because want to be an actress, to learn, and this is the bes way." '* * » · Notables' buy many things. I don't believe in a budget--life is too short. 1 even enjoy the supermarket."--Virna Lisl. "I played a part in 'Murder, Inc,' in which I killed 25 men with an ice pick There wasn't any particular ly good way to prepare for that part. 1 think the whole business of preparation has been overemphasized." -Peter Falk. "When I read scripts, look for something an au dience can understand, don't want to play a char acter too far above every one. On the oilier hand, don't want to play a strin. of 30-year-old virgins, bein chased around a bed, jus because the audience digs it Somewhere in between i the kind of picture 1 like t do."--Shirley MacLaine. "I won't ever do a tele vision series.

MISS BACON exhibited a ovely tone and musicianly instincts in her playing of the first movement of the Boc- cherini Concerto.
