KERSEY INN 7 miles east of Greeley on Hwy. 34 Scott's World: Mac vs. Wallons By VERNON SCOTT HOLLYWOOD (UPi)-Wai- tons: 3. Mac Davis: 0. That's the score, folks. Mar is a good ol' Tpxas country boy at war with the Walton family, a war he can't win for losin'. He's lost three battles against the Walton tribe in (he past two years. His musical shows have gone down to defeat in the Nielsen ratings in direct confrontation with the popular family series. In 1974 Mac lasted 13 weeks. He-suffered the same humiliation last year. Thirteen and kaput. Additionally, a Davis special in 1975 was spotted against "The Waltons." And again he was shot down But Mac ain't a Texan for nothin'. He's persistent. Beginning March 18 Mae will tackle the poverty stricken wretches of Walton's mountain for a fourth try. This time he's been allotted only 10 weeks to unhorse the high-riding clan. "It's a tough row to hoe," said Mac, girding for the skirmish. "We both attract the same kind of audience." Mac's strength lies with the folk in rural America. And that's precisely where John-Boy and his gang are most popular. For some reason city dudes don't cotton to yokel humor, git-fiddle music and down home folksiness. At least not for long. Jim Nabors, Glen Campbell, Roger Miller, Johnny Cash and others havp tripd the higtimn. primctime network scene and were routed by sophisticated sitcoms, cop shows and razzle- dazzle musical series. "Hcc Haw" survives in syndication but its popularity in Manhattan and Hollywood is moot. "I'm aware that in order to succeed I have to appeal to people in the big population centers," said the curly haired troubador. "I have to find audiences in New York, Chicago and Los Angeles. "But I gotta be myself and be or I'll lose my roots. 1 It's a fine line for me. This time I think I've got a chance to be around more than 10 weeks. "As it is, I get picked up and dropped like a Las Vegas bar fly. I think I hold the record for pickups and drops at one network. If I don't make it this time, it can't be done." In the past NBC has set Mac down in a preconceived format. He could have been replaced by almost any number of established performers and viewers would have seen essentially the same show. But Mac is no rube. "This time they're building a-format around me instead ot just sticking me in a show," he said. "The country boy with a guitar is part of the American tradition. This show will reflect my own personality. I'm not going to wear the rhinestone denims. Mostly I'll wear a tuxedo. "And sketches are out. Comedy will be worked into the show with a few blackouts and in my songs. I'll be dancing, too." There won't be as many of iVIiii:*^ original i:uuipu:)iliim: a in the past either. Rather than repeal his tried and true favorites, he'll delve into the works of other writer-singers. "I've had 10 big hits," he said. "And I know viewers like to hear songs by other people they know and love. "I'm still writing music whenever I have time. And I'm going to keep that segment where I ask people in the studio audience for a line or phrase and then ad lib a song to match it. "A survey showed it is the most popular thing I do. We're adding another wrinkle. At the end of every show I'll sine a number sent to me by amateur song writers. We've taped some shows already, and that's a lot of fun." Mac will have his hands full nonetheless. If his luck holds, John-Boy Walton will take up the guitar and knock him out of the box again.

"They were well trained, hard working, hysterically funny and really quite affectionate, as camclsgo. We couldn't be more amazed or tickled with the training by Frank Inn and his head camel wrangler, Ray Chandler." "Nor could we be more pleased with what we've gotlen on film," Camp added.
