the small society by Brickman ITHAPAU- Medical Center's Gannon 'Intense' By CYNTHIA LOWRY AP Television-Radio Writer HOLLYWOOD (AP) - If one is a bit of ft hypochondriac, a lunch break with Chad Everett gives one the nice, warm feeling of a security blanket. Everett—about to enter his third CBS season as "Medical Center's" all-around practitioner of medicine and super- surgeon, Dr. Joe Gannon,— looks and acts just the way one wishes the family doctor would. He also uses words such as "aneurism" with the fluency of a man who has spent a lifetime 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 ol some fan mail he receivet from real doctors • congratulating him on his skill manipulating a pair of Metzen- baum scissors in an operating room scene. "They are used to cut blood vessels," the actor explained "You hold them for cutting be tween the thumb and the thirc finger, and then swing them back to free your other fingers for tying off vessels and using sponges. It really took a lot o practice to get the hang of it." As in other medical series the sickness and surgery sequences of "Medical Center' are handled cautiously. A com mittee of a medical association checks out the scripts and ther are many technical advisers Everett prepared to play docto y spending hours in a hospital, e also took 48 hours of color ilm showing doctors at work in Derating rooms and he looks t this library frequently. Much Medical Knowledge The actor has'picked up so much medical knowledge that when his dog recently ripped 16 ear in a fight, the veterinarian asked Chad if he wanted to help sew the animal up. Iverett declined, he said hasti- Six Flags Taps Big Reservoir y. 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 nsemination. 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 BBECKENRIDGE, Colo. (AP) - Situated at 9,600 feet altitude just west of the Continental 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. Bill Cody Rides Again PHOENIX, Ariz. (AP) - In May of 1883, Col. William Fred erick Cody loaded about 8( head of horses and as many men into a railroad train in North Platte, Neb., and launched what was to become the internationally famous Buffalo Bill's Wild West show. The show lasted until 1916, touring the United States and Europe, when Buffalo Bill closed it down and returned to Denver, Colo. He died the next year. 55 years lawsuits ST. LOUIS (AP) — An am- opened June 16, 1967, and had )itious team is operating a' mecca in America's entertainment industry under the head- ng of Six Flags over Mid- America, the third park in a chain owned by the Great Southwest Corp., a Penn Central subsidiary. In contrast to the financial distress of the parent company, Six Flags has been on a sound financial basis almost from its spawning at Arlington, Tex., more than 1.1 million guests its first season. 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 a river boat trip and a log flume ride, like a roller coaster over water. Two trains chug around the park on 6,600 feet of track. Other entertainment includes both sports and antique car rides, a dolphin show, a Gay Nineties went into research. The site "selected acres of pastureland, Hutchinson News Wednesday, Sept. 15,1971 Page 7 Television Tonight was review at Miss Kitty's Saloon 500 and a puppet theater. from midway between Dallas and Fort Worth, a decade ago. The concept is one of meticu- lously-plannod, wholesome fun pitched to the family with an eye toward 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 reservoir of 78 million persons living within 500 miles of St. Louis. The area includes Chicago to the north, Kansas City to the west, Little Rock and Memphis to the south and Indianapolis, Cincinnati and Louisville to the east, all, within seven .hours' which 200 acres have been converted through l.i 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.

Time hadn't, severed all connections with Buffalo Bill'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 stagecoach 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 Ringling Brothers, B a r n- um and Bailey Circus maintains it has right to use of the Cody name, and has secured a temporary .restraining order requiring that the current Wile West show disassociate itself with the circus in advertising Mid>- America.
