1 " t ,1 Las Vegas Real Indignant About Clime Story Series By HAL HUMPHREY HOLLYWOOEMWaybe you've heard that the fair city of Las Vegas, Nev,, has refused to open Its filei for two TV producers planning series with that desert p 1 a y- R round as the scene of the crime. The way things are now, neither "L a s Vegas File" (Warner Bros, for ABC) or "Las Vegas Beat" (Good- snn - Todman .. . for NBC) v , is Humphrey likely to g<f on the air next fall. When the Las Vegas Chamber of Commerce saw the pilot films of these proposed series, it discovered the usual quota of murders, mayhem and general malfeasance. "Why," the boys in Las Vegas asked themselves, "should we let our little gaming village be pictured on TV as a place where crime runs rampant?" In "Las Vegas.Beat," for ex- Viewing TV ample, Peter Graves (that nice fellow from "Fury") Is a hotel publicity man who spends most of his time solving murders, heists and other assorted felonies. The sheriff and his brave men ate th« heroes In "Las Vegas file," but the Vegas city fathers found the first hour-long film "offense" to their tastes. Frankly, I don't blame the hostelry owners and other Chamber of Commerce leaders In Las Vegas for this attitude. TV viewers already believe that Chicago, Miami Beach, TaUa- hassee (Fla.), San Francisco, Hawaii and Dodge City (Kans.) are Just parking places for corpses. Why should Las Vegas allow its fair name to be sullied with such gore? The worst that can happen to the casual tourist in Las Vegas, which has become known as the "Disneyland for Adults," is the possibility of losing his life's savings at the blackjack table. But, in return, he can see more French nudes, than are I RADIO LOG The Radio and TV programs appearing in The Republic are furnished by the stations, who are responsible for their accuracy.

With much fanfare last December In TV Guide magazine, Ernie announced this was his last season of weekly TV shows. At NBC, however, nobody seems to have read this ultimatum. The netwotk has him locked neatly into the same Thursday night schedule for next season. The word around- Sunset and Vine is that Ernie's agents (Music Corp. of America) are applying the thumb - screws. They are painting a beautiful picture of how Ernie can still work his farm In Northern California, like he wants to do, but cominute (via rocket?) to Hollywood for his weekly song-and- pea-plckin' clambake. It may mean a lot of flying for Ernie, but somebody at MCA is going to be able to keep his Rolls Royce, and that's important, too! Now, all that Ernie has to do Is explain why he changed his mind about retlrln', eh Ernie? * * * SOME PERFORMERS cry that the newspaper critics are too poisonous and unfair in their criticisms. Actually, we are just a bunch of big-hearted pushovers, compared to the National PTA magazine. Here is just a part of its review of ABC's "Soupy Sales" program for kiddies. Says the • PTA critic: "A coarse voice, a crude vocabulary, a vulgar enunciation, atrocious grammar, bestial grunts, howls, yowls, shrieks, gargles, croaks, spitting and other hideous and uncouth noises emanate from throat and stomach to pro•duce the unsavory stew that's poured over your' child every Saturday morning in the hope of eliciting the right answer to the sponsor's question—'What's for dessert?'" * * *. AN AGENCY MAN recently refused to let "The Limeliters" sing their current hit, "Dollar Down, Dollar a Week," on his sponsor's TV show., He was afraid it might engender more "recession talk." * * • COMIC BOB NEWHART went over so big on Toronto's Telemeter Pay-TV last January that the company has offered him $1500 for each of three nights just/to repeat .the tape of his' original show.

By DELOS NEW YCfRK (UPI) - Two prize-winning pianists are making theft recording debuts. One Is the 18-year-old Italian, Mau- rizlo Polllni, who won the 1960 Warsaw Chopin Competition. The other is the 18-year-old Texan, Ivan Davis who won the first Franz Liszt Competition in New Y6rk last year. Pollini recorded Chopin's E minor concerto with the Phllhar- monia Orchestra, Paul Kletzki conducting (Capitol - SG7241). This is music for 18-year-olds who are fired by romance and thrilled by beauty for beauty's sake. He plays it with love, almost with kfsses. APPROPRIATELY Davis, the Liszt winner, recorded Liszt — six of the shorter pieces and the Sixth Hungarian Rhapsody, all marked by their extreme demands upon the technique of the performer. Davis meets all challenges easily with enough left to shape their expressive content (Columbia-MS6222). But the exciting new piano recording is one by Sviatoslav Rlchter perhaps because he recorded music which has depth and variegated meanings to challenge listener and player alike. This was two Beethoven sonatas, the "Appassionata" and the A-flat, Opus 26, the one with a funeral march (RCA Vic- tor-LSC2545). The record displays why Rich- SEWING BEE HOLLYWOOD - Seventy cos- turners, an all-time Warner Bros.' high for a single motion picture, are preparing the 1912 period wardrobe for Meredith Willson's "The Music Man," which Morton DaCosta is producing and directing. <PHO: Sign Off COOL: Sign Off IN RVENT OP A CIVIL DEFENSE EMERGENCY DIAL YOUR RADIO TO 140 OR 1240 Only Lip Readers Knew HOLLYWOOD (AP) — Richard Arlen, who looks younger than his 60 years, says it's a good thing there were no sound tracks around when some of the early silent pictures were filmes. "Everybody used to swear like hell," he explains. "The old handcrank camera would be grinding away and I'd be yelling at my leading lady: " 'Get out of the way, you bum.' And the subtitles would read, "Look, baby, I love you.'" Arlen also recalls a facial expression that was in great demand by directors of the silent era. "It was one of perennial surprise," he ; s ay s. "This ex- pression was in so much demand that some actors would shave off their eyebrows and paint brows higher up so there would be no chance of losing that eager look." HALF HOUSE? HALF TRAILER?
