Telephone OS 5-2115 ROUND TOWN AND THE CLOCK With the Tribune by R. D. Manej TOMORROW IS the day we call Hallowe'en. A day ... or rather nite, that has been dedicated to man's fascination to a somewhat supernatural situation .' . . has evoked many a hearty laugh—sometimes a nervous giggle. R T FOR ONE REASON or another, there seems to be an ir- restible appeal about the shadowy world, which has attracted poets, playwrights;, authors . . . and- spelled success, - however dubious, in the entertainment world. Starting with the wierd days of Shakesphere, with the ghost of Hamlet's father to the preseint day Rod Sterling . . . and his werdo films and probes of what is termed the "Twilight Zone." IF YOU DESIRE documentation . . . take the three new T-V shows . . . with two in haunted houses . . . another a bewitching female in the guise of a housewife GRANTED IT IS GRANTED that they are designed to prodiice laughs, and do at times, out the basic ingredients are found in man's tribal lore—and this centuries before T-V was even a bad dream. The startling part of this is that in the early days there was nothing funny about the superstitous beliefs of the times. BUT AS WiZ have observed Halloween ... it is a time for fun . . . celebration . . . and this is as it should be. ACCORDING TO some of the learned scholars ... as we read it . . . the 'ancient Druids be : lieved some of the dead roamed the streets . . . and bonfires were lighted to drive them away! There are many stories , . . such as the belie54hat cats had once been humans . . . and were changed because "of their evil deeds! Even Boris Karloff cavorted in a play called the "Cat Wife"! A LITTLE LIGHTER SOME SAY THE SOULS revisited their . homes to warm themselves by the fire and bask in the meeting with their kin- filk . , , however unobserved they might be. EVEN THOSE who stated that a man named Jack; was doomed to walk the face of the earth, because he couldn't enter the heavenly gates ... or the alternative ... and thus we have the jack-o'-lantern! NOVEMBER 1 is a Christian Feast Day, the Feast of All Saints. Perhaps Hallowe'en was to be rid of the bad ones—in order to have them out of the way for the day of homage to the Saints! DID YOU KNOW? DID YOU KNOW that" even the Druids combined the days? For three days 'there was rejoicing . . . and ghosting! Roasting of nuts . . . and apples as symbols of harvest. Now it's TRICK or TREAT ... and the apples are not ROASTED . .. . but if you fail to have some apples and other goodies! R T SO—TODAY the rituals of ancient times remain with us to . the extent of grotesque masks, witches,, black, cats,- white ghosts. But the glamor (if it was that) is gone . . . and there are fewer practictioners of the black magic in this enlightened space age . . . unless the grotesqueness of the present election pattern may be classified as such/ Half-truths, images that don't exist except in the typewriters of agents, down-right 'boondoggling' of the people as a whole! R T THEY SAY THAT only squares 'dig'. this spook business, but then even the most sophisticated take a dim view of walking in a cemetery at night . . . and sometimes when alone you might hesr some wierd noises .'. . and some mighty peculiar SHAPES in and around your home. • IF THIS HAPPENS, gentle reader, simply sit right downturn T-V right on . . and vote for good old Boris E! this will remind you .that it is FUN to be SCARED! SIMPLE INFO FOR HALLOWE'EN! THE TARANTULA looks ferocious . - • but according to Compton's Encyclopedia the poisonous Tslte is fatal only to insects. It may, bite a human . .,. in sajf^rae.^b properly treated to avoid in fection. R T IT 15 ALSO said to be untrue that bats will not willingly entangle themselves in women's hair. P.S. •WOULDN'T THEY HAVE a time in this day and age of the •towering bouffant! Wowie! P.S. 'AND THE GOBLINS'LL get- cha . . . ef you don't watch out! fs VOTE M OFFICES OPEN WASHINGTON (UPI) — The nation's federal prosecutors will keep their offices open election day unlil the polls close to act promptly on any reported violations of federal voting laws. Acting Atty. Gen. Nicholas Katzenbach, in a. telegram Thursday, told all U.S. attorneys that obvious federal violations should be investigated immediately by the FBI. A special federal elections office will remain open on Tuesday to assist attorneys, he said. NEW NAME DAR-ES-SALAAM, Tanzania (UPI)'— The new name of the United Republic of Tanganyika and Zanzibar is Tanzania, and the Tanzanian who suggested it has won $28. Announcing the new name Thursday, President Julius- Nyerere said that persons from all over the world had sent in ideas since the search lor a name was announced three months ago. The name of the prize winner . was not announced. M VOTE sa RECOGNIZE JET RACERS LONDON (UPI) — The Royal Automobile Club has decided to recognize world speed records established by jet propelled automobiles^ n VOTE m Television In Review By RICK DU BROW United Press International HOLLYWOOD (UPI)—In his excellent book, "Scarne's Complete Guide to Gambling," John. Scarne, who has appeared on NBC-TV's Jack Paar show, tells this famous poker story, which was printed as far back as 1896: A card sharper entered a Butte, Mont:, saloon, bought into a game and dealt himself; four aces. He was called, spread his. hand and reached for the pot. "Not so fast, Sonny," said an old prospector, laying down three clubs and two diamonds. "In this town a lollapalooza beats any other poker hand. And that's what I've got — three clubs and two diamonds." The sharp next dealt himself a lollapalooza and gave the prospector four. aces. Called again, he said, "I've got the lollapalooza," but the prospector, raking in the pot, said: "Sorry, pardner. You should ask the rules before you deal yourself in. The lollapalooza hand can only be playeft once a night." I offer this story, with no charge for research, to "CBS Reports," which-is preparing a study of television ratings, the system known fondly as "the only game in town," The first major ratings have recently been released, and though everyone knows there have TELEVISION PROGRAM WISH-TV (Channel 8) Friday, October 30, 19(4 4:00 Secret Storm 4:30 Jack Benny 5:00 Early Show 6:00 Earlly Show 6:30 News-Cronkite 7:00 News Hickox 7:30 Rawhide 8:30 The Entertainers 9:30 Gomer 'Pyle 10:00 The Reporter 11:00 News-Hickox 11:15 Sports—Late Show 12:00 Late Show Saturday, October 31, .1964 8:00 Mister Mayor 9:00 The Alvin Show 9:30 Tennessee Tuxedo 10:00 Quick Draw tMcGraw 10:30Mighty Mouse 'Playhouse 11:00 Booby Trap . 12:00 Sky King 12:30 My Friend Flicka 1:00 The Jetsons 2:00 Thunderjet 500 3:00 Schools 3:30 William Tell • WFBM (Channel 6) Friday, October 30, 1964 4:00 Match Game 4:30 WFBM Presents 5:00 WFBM Presents 6:00 WFBM Presents 6:30 Huntley-Brinkley 7:00 News-Caldwell 7:30 International Showjtime 8:30 Bob Hope Theater (c) 9:30 Jack Benny 10:00 Jack Paar (c) been many pre-emptions for political broadcasts and news specials, the statistics have registered with the impact of a lollapalooza because of the supposed 'indications, some of which follow: Monday night, which used to be dominated by CBS-TV with its Lucille Ball-Andy Griffith- Danny Thomas parlay, now has been taken over by ABC-TV, say the ielsen ratings. The ABC-TV lineup is "Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea," "No Time For Sergeants," "Wendy and Me," the Bing Crosby show and "Ben Casey." Tuesday, says Nielsen, is also strong for ABC-TV. And the lineup here is "Combat," "McHale's Navy," "The Tycoon," "Peyton Place" and "The Fugitive." ABC-TV, which is the talk of the industry because of its numbers showing, also led in Nielsen figures for Thursday, the bulk of its ratings pull coming 'from Donna Reed, "My Three Sons," "Bewitched" and the other half of "Peyton Place." •Wednesday went to NBC-TV; which has- only two .shows on that night:' "The Virginian" and the Wednesday night movie. Saturday also went to NBC- TV, primarily becuuse of "Flipper" and the Saturday night movie, with a slight bit of help from "Kentucky Jones." And NBC-TV also took Sunday, far and away because of "Bonanza," the top-rated show, which got a little help from Walt Disney's hour. Although CBS-TV was second to ABC-TV in overall average, Nielsen says it took only Friday, and this is almost entirely because of the new series about a hillbilly Marine, "Gomer Pyle." . ABC-TV, according to Nielsen, came close to grabbing off Friday too, with "The Addams Family" pulling strong, and "The Farmer's Daughter," "Valentine's Day" and "12 O'clock High" shipping ^n. The supposedly definitive ratings aren't due until December, but in television the definitive rating is the last rating anyone sees. In any case, don't lose too much sleep over the apparent slide of CBS-TV. It only took in $73 million last year.
