TV PREVIEWS (TV Time critics preview coming television shows by attending rehearsals watching screenings and ana' yzmg scripts in Ne Wj York and Hollywood. These are their previews for today): BEST BETS 5-5:30 P.M. CBS. TWENTIETH Century. "Beachhead at Anzio." (rerun), The many years since the invasion of Italy at Anzio tend to dim our memories about the hardest fought amphibious operation in history. Things like the four-month struggle to hold the beachhead 5:30-8 P.M. CBS. MISTER ED (rerun). There's good fun as Wilbur (Alan Young) learns it doesn't pay to horse around with a horse. Mister Ed gets miffed when his boss and a friend ridicule horses by adopting a two-man horse costume for a party and makes Wilbur walk home from a canter in the park. Wilbur retaliates by announcing he'll rent a riding horse. But Wilbur finally comes lo terms with Mister Ed, who proves horses stick together when the chips are down. 6:30-7 P.M. CBS. MY FAV- orite Martian. It's rather dull tonight for .this usually amusing series. Trouble here is a one-joke plot that stretches interminably. Mrs. Brown (Pamela Britton) OTHER HIGHLIGHTS against German and Italian attacks, including over 2,500 air strikes, should not be forgotten. The films tonight are typical war films, while the words of guests Bill Mauldin, nurse Ronona G i 11 i g a n and CBS correspondent Stuart Novins do much to enhance them. Walter Cronkite reports. suddenly finds herself with the power of making things float in the air merely by pointing at them. She doesn't know she acquired the power through an error of Tim's (Bill Bixby) who was helping our Martian (Ray Walston) regain his magnetic force after he was short-circuited by a lightning flash. 6:30-7:30 P.M. ABC. EMPIRE "Ride to a Fall" (rerun). As is so often true on this series, the scripts don't amount to much, but the performances are easily worth anyone's time. Victor Jory does a fine job as an insecure businessman and Claude Akins, one of Hollywood's outstanding menaces, performs in his usually capable fashion in a typical role. 7-8 P.M. CBS. THE ED SUL- livan Show. Once again Ed proves he has TV Gome Shows Eaf Up Pane/isfs By CYNTHIA LOWRY AP Television-Radio Wriger NEW YORK (AP) - "Now then," said Producer Bob Bach casually, "we'll play a little 'Password,' a little 'Missing Links,' a little 'Match Game' and even a little 'What's My Line?' although you may think it's too easy to bother with." Five people — including this reporter — sat rather tensely around a council table in a businesslike conference room on the 30th floor of a Park Avenue skyscraper. We were about to be auditioned as prospective "celebrity panelists" for some of die Goodson - Todman game shows that occupy so much tuns on 1 :c Ihree major networks. T''e other four were legitimate f" -' rity auditionists: rising yj'.'.nj film and television ac- i ; . Lois Nettleton; singer Ir. "a Adams; television spokesr: i Lee Goodman who stars in funny cereal commercials, ar- ) writer, broadcaster and beauty consultant Anita Colby. I \va.> t'lerc to find out whether playing guessing games on tele- v -':n was as easy and as much fun as it seems to the living IM-IH audience. The audition is a biweekly institution because the packaging firm, with nine game shows on the three networks, is constantly looking for bright, fresh personalities and faces. There are plenty of volunteers because (he informal shows give performers excellent exposure to television audiences and show facets of their personalities and talents often concealed in their strictly professional appearances. Bach, associate producer of "What's My Line?" presided over the first part of the hour- long audition. We started with a few rounds of "Password," after he counseled us to use one- word clues, avoid "sound-alike" words because they were confusing and keep away from words with double meaning. "Password" was fun, and it requires enormous concentration on the clues by both teams. We moved on to "What's My Line?" with Franklin Heller, its producer, playing the parts of both host John Daly and the guest. This may look like an easy game when played by the panel experts but it is the most difficult of all the Goodson-Todman games for the uninitiated to play, because they are likely to run out of revealing questions in short order. Our next project was "Missing Links," trying to supply words for blank spaces in a story related by a guest, in this case a French woman who owned a New York restaurant. Lois Nettleton honorably disqualified herself because she had seen the show on which the woman had actually appeared. It took the rest of us awhile but we ultimately managed to guess everything except the reason that the restaurant dance floor was the most intimate in the city. It turned out that it was "heart-shaped," but none of us came even close. Along with "Password," "Match Game" proved to be the most carefree fun and we did pretty well. Asked to name an inventor besides Thomas Edi son, three of us came up with Eli Whitney and two with Robert Fulton. Three of us matched on "Vassar" when asked to name a woman's college. We were unanimous in choosing Al Capp when asked to name a cartoonist. Sex and Violence Themes Interest Subcommittee a truly international show. .The Beatles are back, this time on tape, to sing one song and be interviewed by their host. From the world's fair Ed presents a film sequence on Michelangelo's Pieta. Also from the fair will be the Watusi dancers and the Royal Court drummers from the Kingdom of Burundi. From France comes singing star Jean Paul Vignon. England's Professor Backwards makes an appearance and the U.S. offers singer Liza Minnelli, the Duke Ellington orchestra and Mezzo-Soprano Shirley Verrett. 9-10 P.M. NBC. THE RIVER Nile. (Color) (rerun). There are three features: Amazingly beautiful color photography; a moving musical score, and a dramatic narration by James Mason of a well- written script. But in the final analysis, it remains nothing more than a brilliantly produced travelogue. It begins on a plateau in East Africa where the Nile's 4,000- mile journey to the Mediterranean starts. There are awesome natural scenes of waterfall and jungle as well as beautiful glimpses of Egypt's ancient civilizations including the valley of the kings, the pyramids and the sphinx. NEW YORK (AP)-The Senate subcommittee on Juvenile Delinquency is expected to resume its interest in television's "sex and violence" themes with new hearings within the next few weeks. Some of the programs which 1 were under sharp scrutiny, if not attack, during the original hearings four seasons back, are still around in syndicated reruns. Sexual themes have been prominent this season in many of the so-called "social drama" series—the doctor, psychiatrist, nurse, social worker and even social teacher shows. Almost all the late • evening dramatic shows have dealt rather frankly with subjects traditionally considered too adult for youthful eyes and ears, and so — occasionally — has an early evening program like "Mr. Novak" obviously scheduled for the family audience. However, Jt appears to one whose viewing has been fairly concentrated upon this season's output, that the good-or bad- old days when every action-adventure series ended in a long, messy fight in a warehouse are definitely over. The Emmy Awards pot continues to boil. Today, Herbert Brodjdn, bead of the production company that turns out "The Defenders" and "The Nurses" for CBS broadcast, followed network policy by saying he would not attend the awards show, an NBC special on May 25. He added that anyone associated with the production company was free to attend "as an individual" E. G. Marshall, star of "The Defenders," is under NBC contract to appear as East Coast host on the show. Much more important than i Marshall's one-shot appearance, however, is the fact that New York appears to have lost the production of the two television series. Brodkin said that the move to Hollywood, made when a strike—now settled—of a New York scenic designers union closed down production, is for "an indefinite period." "We have no thought of moving back to New York," he said. Hugh Downs, Busy Schedule Together NEW YORK (AP) - Hugh Downs, the head man of NBC's "Today Show," somehow manages to crowd an incredible number of activities into his schedule. He arises at 4:30 a.m., for his daily chores—host, Interviewer, salesman, introducer, light conversationalist —on the two-hour morning show, and moves on to his job of gamesmaster and pitchman on the network's "Concentration." He also finds time for flying lessons, French lessons, guitar practice, skin-diving, gun collecting, studying celestial navigation, carrying on a side-business that packages radio and television programs and com' mercial films, reading, and working for his favorite charity, the Mental Health Society, Downs, 43, recently returned from a vacation trip to Europe and in August will turn actor briefly to play in a summer stock production of "Love and Kisses." Downs admits that he does crowd an enormous amount of activity into each day, but in sists that he accomplishes it through "my theory of procrastination." "If there isn't time today, there is always tomorrow or the day after—so just put it off," he explains. Although Downs does make some plans far ahead—he expects to sail across the Pacific next summer—such foresight is necessary because of his broadcasting work. "I don't seem to have any long-range goal in life, and I don't believe I ever have had," he says. "I sort of go along with things and see what happens. "The short-range goal, of course, is to safeguard my family's living standard. And, of course, it would be nice if that could be accomplished with less air time for me. That would give me more time to follow things in which I'm interested." Downs, his attractive dark- haired wife Ruth and daughter Deirdre, 15, live in a mid-Manhattan apartment, a long walk away from Downs' studio. Son Hugh, 18, will soon be entering Ohio's Bowling Green College. Deirdre is interested in becoming an actress and will study dramatics this summer at Interlaken, Mich. HELD OVER BY POPULAR DEMAND!

By BOB THOMAS AP Movie-Television Writer HpLLYWOOD (AP)-Tho television industry's annual awards binge was given a rousing sendoff a fortnight before the event via blasts from CBS news and ABC. Next Monday NBC will telecast the Emmy awards, but it's likely that the Television Academy will never be the same. Motives for the blasts have been cause for speculation in the industry. Was CBS news mad because NBC's Chet Huntley and David Brinkley collect Emmies each year with the regularity of swallows checking into Capistrano? And was ABC disgruntled because its emphasis on filmed entertainment series always places the network third in Emmy totals? Regardless of reasons behind them, the double complaints reflect the continuing concern within television over the illogic of the awards structure. Three elements mitigate against an orderly selection of television awards: 1. Lack of uniformity. There seems to bo little rhyme or reason in many categories. Specials are pitted against series, actors against actresses, stars of a single special against a star who plays the same role 30 times a season. 2. Abundance of categories. The classifications have been trimmed in recent years, but there still is a tendency to try and reward every typo of creative effort. Some sportscasters were even campaigning this year for a sports award. 3. Inability to judge. The greatest fallacy in the presentation of television awards is the belief,that voters can view all the candidates. It is humanly impossible. Press Freedom Is Defined By Journalist NEW YORK (AP)-Benjamin M. McKelway, a leading figure in American journalism for many years, says "freedom of the press means freedom from all regulations save those self- imposed by responsible self-restraint." "The concept—in any form— of a referee or policeman, sitting in judgment upon the performance of the press and seeking to enforce that judgment is fundamentally opposed to the concept of press freedom," he I said. ] McKelway, editorial chairman of the Washington Star and former president of The Associated Press, delivered the sixth Pulitzer Memorial lecture at the Columbia Graduate School of Journalism. He said that under the constitutional guarantee of a free press, newspapers are not licensed and are in a category different from that of television and radio. 7:30—Christophers, 10 7;45~TV Register, 10 8; 00—Thrco Stooges, 10 Gospel Favorites, 2 8:15—Travelogue, 4 8:30—Revivalists, 4 Sunrise Semester, 6 9:00—Oral Roberts, 4 The Living Word, 5 Theater, 10 Lamp Unto My Feet, 6 Biography, 2 9:30—Streams of Faith, 4 Faith For Today, 5 Story of a Marine Sergeant, 2 Cartoons, 3 Marine, 10 9:45—Gospel Singing, 4 10:00—Church in the Home, 5 Camera Throe, 6 The Answer, 3 Conversation, 2 "Holiday in Havana," 7 Adventure Theater, 10 10:30—Movie, 5 Face the Nation, 6 Pursuit of Learning, 2 This Is llio Answer, 3 This Is the Life, 4 ll:00-Chiirch Service, 2, 4, 3.
