the small society by Brickman grr WAS/ILL IT HAP ALL Medical Center's Gannon 'Intense' By CYNTHIA LOWRY AP TelevUloa-Radio Writer HOLLYWOOD (AP) - M one is a bit of a hypochondriac, a lunch break with Chad Everett gives one (he nice, warm feeling of a security blanket. Everett-^bout 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 of some fan mail he received 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 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 other medical series, the sickness and surgery Sequences of "Medical Center" are handled cautiously. A committee of a medical association checks out the scripts and there are many technical x advisers. Everett prepared to play doctor by spending hours in a hospital. He also took 48 hours of color, film showing doctors at work in operating rooms and he looks at this library frequently. Much Medical Knowledge The actor has picked up so much medical knowledge that when his dog recently ripped his ear in a fight, the veterinarian 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. I Has Average Yield Since First Settled BRECKENRIDGE, Colo. (AP) - Situated at 9,600 feet aU titude juat 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 1860'3. 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 sec- -tion house marks the spot. CROSSWORD PUZZLE nrasra ACROSS 1. Vigorous 5. Enlarge 8. Nettle 11. Melange 12. Garland 13.1,002 14. Humdinger 15. Club moss 17.

By way of SHH BUI Cody Rides Again PHOENIX, Ariz. (AP) - In May of 1883, Col. William Frederick Cody loaded about 80 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 nex year. t One night recently, 55 years later, hampered by lawsuits and opening-night foibles, Buf falo Bill's Wild West and Con gress of Rough Riders of th World reopened here. Time hadn't severed all con nectfons with Buffalo Bill's old show. His great grand-daugh ter, Patricia Garlow, rode in the event, and the production manager was Jack Joyce Jr. son of one of the original Wile West show veterans. Even the stagecoach used in one act wa used in the turn-of-the-centurj shows. Ironically, use of th« nam Bill Cody in the show is the subject of several court suits The Ringling Brothers, Barn urn and Bailey Circus main tains It has right to use of the Cody name, and has secured temporary restraining order re quiring that the current Wil< West show disassociate itself with the circus in advertising Nearly 4,000 fans sat for 2V hours Wednesday through In dian attacks, stunt-riding exh bitions, cavalry drills and, Wil Bill forgive, a few circus acts. The show is the creation < Montie Montana Jr., son of th famous rodeo cowboy and ro per.
