Bob Hope's special feature new writer Frl.. April M,im , GREELEY (Cote.) TRIBUNE * ,By,;JAY 8HARBUTT AP Ttlevitloi Wrttcr NEf.YORK (AP) - Bob Hope'j seventh and final NBC jfpecial of the season last night plrtty composed by a new ··old writer hurriedly '.into duty. The writer Hope. . V ' : His seven-man team of jok- imiths, all members of the - "*c*, 'rlten.Guildj-had to go out on J***ijJtHke;.wh«n the guild did last ^eekend. This left Hope sans "-"writers just before rehearsals ;,; began. '.,' " They had''turned in a basic outline of the show before swapping typewriters for picket - signs, but not all.the gags had i , n been tested, timed, accepted or · IT rejected: · r i d ; This put Hope in a bit of a 9-jJt bind because, as he explained, ·is t, J , "ordinarily we work right up to 13 'he last minute on the script, , ··· even while we're shooting. "-·-- "If we don't like something, t )'t\' we go back and redo it or put a * \ 1- _f4)andaid on it here or there. 1 1 y'··::!: "And while we're shooting we t r.i ·· have the writers up in a room, Kiilswatching on a TV monitor, and _ we go up and we say, 'What t --'-siSan we do here?' We do a lot of iir work." j$Tnis week, Hope had to fix it Miimself, as well as write part J of it, aided by comedian Milton ''Berle, who appeared on the show alpng with Glen Camp- the Supremes and Joey Heatherton. "Everybody was chipping I ^5^ jn--the cameramen, Berle, ev- "" s^rybody," Hope said earlier flhis week as videotape editors tat NBC's studios in beautiful downtown Burbank were splicing the show together. "We all just sat around, throwing out lines and it worked pretty good," said Rapid Robert, adding that the last time he actually sat down at a typewriter to write his own monologue was in 1938. On virtually all his TV specials, he said, the drill calls for the writers to bring in the material, which he edits or revises and then dispatches to the man who paints cue cards, or "idiot cards." "It was kind of embarrassing looking at 500 blank idiot cards," Hope said of the scene facing him when rehearsals began. Hope, who is coming to New York April .28 for a benefit. As Boyle sees it By HAL BOYLE J _'J " NEW YORK (AP) - Homesick for a cat? Me? · At my age? Impossible!" But that's the way it seems to be. They say that when the cat's away the mice begin to play. But since our cat went away, all I've done is feel lonesome. It was bad enough when my 19-year-old daughter Tracy Ann returned to Windham College in Putney, Vt., after she took a semester off with the encouragement of the faculty there. But then she came home one weekend and took our 14-year- old cat back to college wilh her, and since then things have gotten much worse. At first I felt kind of relieved. I enjoyed the reprieve from having to clean out a cat box and trying to please the whimsical appetite of a cat with more food prejudices than a houseful of spoiled children. But then I began to miss her. I missed her soft leg-rubbing greeting at the door when I came home. I missed not hav- ing to fight her for the best seat on the sofa -- the one by the lamp. I missed the fun of watching her fight her way out of a paper bag, or crinkle herself a fresh bed in the tissue paper of new clothing box. I missed waking and hearing her stalking around the apartment in the dead of night crying to herself. "Woe, Harold, woe." If you think all a cat says is "meow," you either have a tin ear or have a very limited vocabulary yourself. With both my cat and daughter gone, I find a new color television set -- I think I must be the next to the last person in my neighborhood to get one -rather faded company. Of my two teen-agers away, I suppose 1 really miss Lady Dottie the most. My daughter, like most teen-agers, has lost the ability to write a letter. But she's on the phone fairly regularly to announce some new plight she's up to her neck in, or what unplumbed abyss of poverty she'll descend into if another check doesn't get there soon. Weekend TV schedules But I haven't heard directly from my cat at all. A cat, of course, is too proud even to curse over a telephone, let alone carry on a conversation. I have to take Tracy's word for it that Lady Dottie is well and healthy, and has been found to be the smartest feline student in the history of Windham College, and may become the first one ever to graduate summa cum laude. This report, while it naturally makes me proud -- what parent isn't proud his teen-ager is a success in college? -- also leaves me with some misgivings. I can see the advantages of giving a daughter a college education. At the least it will add cultural depth to her life. It might also be/the springboard to a self-supporting career. And it certainly will make her a more interesting wife and a better informed mother, should marriage be her career, as I fondly hope. But I don't quite see the point in Lady Dottie being in college.

The whole thing is ridiculous. What do I want with an educated cat in my family any. way? If she comes home with a summa cum laude degree, it'll only give me an inferiority complex. And I have trouble enough raising a voice of authority in my home without having to put up with the silent sneers of an uppity cat.
