34 GREELEV (Colo.) TRIBUNE Thurs., May26,1977 ABC to explore mental illness By JOAN HANAUER UPI Television Writer -NEW YORK (UPI) - The " psychiatric profession finds it 1 difficult to define mental ; illness, but in the United States '· there are 495 institutions to · treat it and 200,000 persons · hospitalized because of it at I any given time. : The relationship between the disease - if it is a disease -.; and the community that treats - it with disappointing results is ,, the subject of the ABC News Closeup, "Madness and Medicine," to be broadcast May 26, 10-11 p.m.. Eastern time. The documentary itself is maddening. It undertakes to outline part of the problem, and gives enough information so that the audience can begin to understand the question -- but leaves out much information needed to come close to forming an opinion about the answer, or even the direction from which an answer might come. The program, narrated by Howard K. Smith, doesn't deal with the couch patients who are able to function in society, with or without the help of outpatient therapy or treatment. "This report is about those thought to be so seriously disturbed that drastic, and sometimes dangerous, treatments are used," Smith says. The treatments involved Include drugs, some of (juestiona- ble value and others with devastating side effects, electric shock and brain surgery. The photographing of a brain surgeon at work is bloody and fascinating but not for those who blanch at the sight of an open wound. Producer-director Phil Lewis has interviewed a series of psychiatrists who cover the waterfront of phsychiatric views, from the head of the American Psychiatric Association to an anti-Establishment ward psychiatrist who would divide the profession between those trained in neurology to treat brain disease, and non- medical "tutors" to help the troubled learn to understand themselves. There are many interviews with former patients who had been institutionalized and remember the experience with pain and resentment. Their pain is real, and many of their complaint: are justified. There also is much talk about the low tolerance level our society holds for bizarre or nonconformist behavior. \Vhat the program does not investigate or show is the state that these former patients were in before their disturbing -even torturous -- experiences. One patient talks about what it Is like to be crtiy, and she says, "Everything is righting -is bright -- is bsrsh -- it hurts!" Granted treatment of seriously disturbed persons sometimes amounts to no more than caretaking, with drugs to make the patient manageable. But does the pain justify the use of even half understood treatment, even if the end Is in doubt? The 10 top network television programs for the week ending May 22, according to the A.C. Nielsen Co., were: 1: Boxing, Ali vs. Evangdls- ta; 2: "M-A-S-H;" 3: "Lucan" and "Good Against Evil" (ABC Sunday double feature); 4: "Charlie's Angels;" 5: "Laverne 4 Shirley;" 6: "One Day AtATime;"?: "HappyDays;" 8: "Barney Miller;" 9: "Cold Turkey" (CBS Monday movie); 10: "Ben Hur" (CBS Sunday movie). son Bob 11 Greek river DOWN 1 - Bay, Maine 2 Lancelot's business attire 3 Italian composer (2 wds.) 4 Consume 5 Small European finch i "The Good Earth" heroine Abe Vigoda always plays an old man By JAY SHARBUTT AP Television Writer LOS ANGELES (AP) - Abe Vigoda, who as ABC's "Fish" plays the nation's best-known old detective with hemorrhoids, slid into the booth at a Beverly Hills eats emporium and was promptly spotted by the waitress.

"It's a very nice feeling that people recognize you, particularly when it happens in middle age and you've been at your field for so many years and nobody knew you," said the 56- year-old actor. "It's a happy feeling ... they represent what's happening to me, which is being able to do the things I've been doing." The doings include: --A costarring role in a new Neil Simon movie, "The Cheap Detective." --A planned trip in mid-June to Australia -- his first overseas voyage other than the one to Staten Island -- to promote "Fish." --A possible trip in March to Broadway, to star in a new comedy by Allen Boretz, "The Flying Elephant," cast as a middle-aged lawyer who, he says, "falls in love with a Texas hooker." Vigoda, who cornea from Brooklyn, speaks as slowly and gravely as his Fish character, but without the character's dour, all-is-Iost outlook. And though the tired slouch of Fish seems a subliminal warning by the President's Council on Physical Fitness, Vigoda actually is a firm believer in exercise. He plays handball, jogs and recently took up golf. Still, he says, ever since his first acting job -- at age 6 in a school play -- he's usually played old men. "There's something about my countenance, my demeanor if you wish, that suggests ! have the world on my back," he said, almost wistfully. "It's probably one of the reasons Danny Arnold (executive producer of 'Barney Miller 1 and 'Fish') hired me. I was jogging the day I came into his office and I was a little tired. "And he said, 'Geez, this guy looks like Fish to me.' And he gave me the part right then and there. But inside I don't feel that way. Inside, I'm an athlete and feel like a man of 35." Vigoda, who has acted professionally since 1947, credits the 1972 movie hit, "The Godfather," as (he turning point in his career. In the movie, he played Tessio, a gunsel of Mafia persuasion. It led to a string of generally villanous roles in various cop shows, then "Barney Miller,'' then his own series. by THOMAS JOSEPH ACROSS * Carl or I Confine S Yellowish brown II Norma's "CastaDiva" 12 "Astolat" maid 13 Soot particle 11 "El Grande" 15 Comedian Cosby, to friends 15 Hubbub 17 Chinese dynasty 18 Mount Hood's state 20 Argot 21 Groan provoker 22 Moliere's forte 23 Sugar tree 25 S.A. mountains 26 White poplar 27 Haul 28 Shade of blue 29 Spanish procrastinator's word 32 Pub potable 33 Wire measurement 34 Deity 35 Medusa was one 37 Queen --'s lace 38 Salad green 39 Ship's backbone LITTLE PEOPLE'S PUZZLE Tale' king I!
