the small society by Brickman IT MAP ALL MAPP^&P\ Medical Center's Gannon 'Intense' By CYNTHIA LOWRY AP Television-Radio Writer HOLLYWOOD (AP) - If one is a bit of a liypocbondriac, a lunch break wJl^ Chad Everett gives one the nice, wann feeling of a security blanlcet. Everett-abbut to enter his third CBS season as "Medical Center's" aH-around practitioner of medicine and super- surgeon, Dr. Joe Gannon,— looks and acts just tlie way one wishes the family doctor would. He also uses words such as "aneurism" with the fluency of a man who has spent a lifetune peering at X rays. Intense Preparation Although the operating room scenes occupy only a fraction on any episode's time, Everett prepares for them with the intensity of an athlete training for the Olympics. He is particularly proud of some fan mail he received from real doctors congratulating him on his skill manipulating a pair of Metzen- baum scissors in an operatmg room scene. "They are used to cut blood vessels," the actor explained. "You hold them for cutting between the thumb and the third finger, and then swing them back to free your other fingers for tying off vessels and using sponges. It really took a lot of practice to get the hang of it." As in othsr medical series, the sickness and surgery se^ quences of "Medical Center" are handled cautiously. A committee of a medical association checks out the scripts and there are many technical advisers. Everett prepared to play doctor by spending hours in a hospital. He also took 48 hours of color film showuig doctors at work m operathig rooms and he looks alt this library frequently. Mucb MedicaU Knowledge The actor has'picked up so much medical knowledge that when his dog recently ripped his ear in a fight, the veter inarian asked Chad if he wanted to help sew the animal up. Everett declined, he said hastily. Everett said the series will continue to feature contemporary themes, some of which would have been out of TV bounds a few seasons back- male impotence and artificial insemination. There also is one about a great surgeon in failing health with a "ghost surgeon" who steps in to handle the difficult, delicate parts of his oper- aions. Has Average Yield Since First Settled BRECKENRIDGE, Colo. (AP) — Situated at 9,600 feet altitude just west of the Contmen- tal Divide, this town's gold mines have yielded an average of nearly $1 million for each of the 111 years since it was first settled during the gold rush of the 1860's. • At the turn of the century the highest post office in the U.S. was located a few miles out of town on 11,482-foot Boreas Pass, where a narrow gauge railroad line snaked its way across the Rockies. Today an old log section house marks the spot. CROSSWORD PUZZLE ACROSS 1. Vigorous S.Enlarge 8, Nettle 11. Melange 12. Garland 13.1,002 14. Humdinger 15. Club moss 17. Sign 18.Secondhand 19.

(AP) - In May of 1883, Col. WilUani Frederick Cody loaded about 80 head of horses and as many men into a raUroad train m North Platte, Neb., and launched what was to become the internationally famous Buffalo BUI 'S WUd West show. The show lasted untU 1916, touring the United States and Europe, when Buffalo Bill closed it dovra and returned to Denver, Colo. He died the next year. One night recently, 55 years later, hampered by lawsuits and openmg-night foibles, Buffalo BUI 'S Wild West and Congress of Rough Riders of the World reopened here. Time hadn 't, severed all con- Inectiona with Buffalo BiU 's old show. His great grand -daughter, Patricia Garlow, rode in the event, and the production manager was Jack Joyce Jr., son of one of the original Wild West show veterans. Even the stagecoaich used in one act was used in the turn-of-the-century shows. Ironically, use of the name Bill Cody in the show is the subject of several court suits. The RingUng Brothers, B a r n- um and Bailey Circus maintains it has right to use of the Cody name, and has secured a temporary restrainuig order requiring that the current Wild West show disassociate itself with the circus in advertising. Neariy 4,000 fans sat for IVi hours Wednesday through Indian attacks, stunt-riding exhibitions, cavalry drills and, WUd BUI forgive, a few circus acts. The show is the creation of Montie Montana Jr., son of the famous rodeo cowboy and roper. The script, which advises fans of what the original WUd West show fans .watched, was written by Tom Blackburn, who wrote the script and songs for Walt Disney's legendary Dave Crockett fUm. Six Flags Taps Big Reservoir ST. LOUIS (AP) - An ambitious team is operating a mecca in America's entertainment industry under the heading of Six Flags over Mid- America, the third park in a chain owned by the Grea Southwest Corp., a Penn Central subsidiary. In contrast to the financia distress of the parent company. Six Flags has been on a sound financial basis almost from its spawning at Arlington, Tex., midway between Dallas and Fort Worth, a decade ago. The concept is one of meticu- lously-plannod, wholesome fun pitched to the famUy with an eye tdward making"" it within the reach of Dad's pocketbook. In extending Six Flags to the Midwest, Great Southwest is tapping what it considers to be a reservoh" of 78 million persons living within 500 mUes of St. Louis. The area includes Chicago to the north, Kansas City to the west. Little Rock and Memphis to the south and Indianapolis, Cmcinnati and Louisville to the east, all within seven hours' driving from Six Flags Over Mid^America. Six Flags Over Texas, grea Southwest's pilot project, opened Aug. 5, 1961, and has attracted more than 17 miUion visitors, including a single-day high of 34,381.

Before directors of Great Southwest selected a site near Eureka, Mo., 32 miles west of the St. Louis Arch for a third Six Flags, more than 18 months went into research. The site selected was 500 acres of pastureland, from which 200 acres have been converted through 1.^ million man- hours into Six Flags Over Mid- America. Opening June 5, the park has been a success that exceeded the expectations of Larry Cochran, general manager. By Labor Day attendance climbed to 1.2 million. The park, manned principally by enthusiastic high school and college youngsters, shifted to fall hours after Labor Day and wiU be open Saturdays and Sundays through Oct. 31. Inside Six Flags Over Mid- America is a conglomeraition of entertainment much hke that at its sister parks, with facets reflecting tlie scenic area's his- ory. A runaway mine train, patterned after a roller coaster, is an, innovation. The park also features a skyway, a cave ride, la river boat trip and a log flume ride, like a roller coaster over water. Two trains chug around the park on 8,600 feet of track. Other entertainment includes both sports and antique car rides, a dolpMn show, a Gay Nineties review at Muss Kitty's Saloon and a puppet theater. Food and beverage stands and shops on the grounds do a business of $25,000 daily, with assistant manager Russ Melton, 21, explaining that "cleali- ness is the first thing we work on."
