But this one is named Michael and he's an actor, not a news commentator, i He's 29, the twin son of CBS News's Eric Sevareid. j These days Mike looks more like 59, but only because of the nature of his first film role. He's playing a marathon dancer in ABC Palomar Productions' Opem 7:00 Show At Dusk So. on Hiwoy 32 JOHN WAYNE GLEN CAMPBELI KIM DARBY IN HAL WALLI5' PROOOCTK5N IE TKwajr 1 mmue Kim jG& &m cent 20" Cen:.r, foi Presmti "V IBS AT 8:45 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 i i - ; IS TODAY SUNDAY, JULY 27th 10 A.M. to 8 P.M. RACINE CBS's news sage Eric Sevareid, from Mike's first movie, "They "They Shoot Horses, Don't They?" For the benefit of youthful readers: A marathon dance was a distraction used during the great. Depression, to keep folks' minds off breadlines and apple-sellers. It was a torture contest to determine what couple could stay conscious on a dance floor the longest. 'They Shoot Horses, Don't They?" is about such a contest, and among the marathonners are Jane Fonda, Michael Sarra-j zan, Red Buttons, Susannah! York and Michael Sevareid. First Actor He's the first in his family to turn to acting. "When you come from a. Lutheran Norwegian Midwest background, you don't find ; many actors in the family," he explained. Mike Sevareid was born in Paris during the fateful year of 1940. His father had been hired by Edward R. Murrow to cover the French side of the war, but the German advance interrupted his assignment. He hurried his wife and infant sons to Gen-oa, from which they sailed for ! the United States with 6,000 other escapees from ;the Hitler invasion. "My father stayed on to cover the war. and then my mother went to Europe to work for UN-RRA," Mike related. "My brother and I were shipped off to live with our grandmother in Minneapolis. "We never really saw my father until he came home after; the war. When he came in the house, I said to him, 'My daddy's coming home soon. I guess that kind of shook him up." Brother's Idea The reunited family settled near Washington, D.C. where Sevareid's career with CBS News continued to flourish. "It! was my brother who got me started with acting," said Mike. "He talked me into appearing with him in a prep school production of 'Inherit the Wind.' I was intrigued, but I had more interest in football and track." His brother, Peter, now teaches law in Kenya for the Ford Foundation. Mike did some plays at Mid-, ZOO AP Wirephota and actress Gail Billings play Shoot Horses, Don't They?" dlebury College, then cut out to try his hand at acting in New York. "That was when Dad had his doubts about my acting," he said. "He thought I was crazy to leave school, but I was going through a period when I couldn't face it. He was in London then and going through a divorce, and he convinced me to come over there and get into drama school. I think he just wanted to have me nearby." Mike met an Irish girl who was working for the BBC, mar-! ried her and returned to Newi York for another try at acting.; He returned to college, then landed with the Minneapolis Theater Company, playing character roles at $85 a week. He left the company at the end of its tour here and within a brief; time landed the role in "They Shoot horses." j He knows that the Sevareid name can open doors for him "but after that I'm on my own." NOT FULLY QUALIFIED About 108,000 full-time schoolteachers, who instruct 2.5 million pupils, do not meet the state or local certification requirements for their position.

I can understand his pride 1his is Heston's best work in years and a fine picture, although you almost have to be a football Kleiner fan to understand it. I sat with Chuck's costar, Jessica Walter, and Ernie Barnes, the old Colt-Charger -Brbnco-Titan star, who is now an artist. Barnes makes his acting debut in "Number One" and does very well Barnes says that he and Mike! Henry, the former Los Angeles Ram and Tarzan, are working up a television special built around pro football and that Heston will narrate. There also may be a series on football from these two experienced and ambi tious men. Heston's house, a showplace of art and architecture, survived last winter's floods, but his' driveway didn't. Chuck says they couldn't get in or out for weeks when the driveway slid down the mountain. The new one, an engineering masterpiece, has so much steel and concrete extending down so deep, Heston says, that the engineer told him, "If there's ever an earthquake stand right on this driveway it's not going anyplace." MARLO THOMAS hopes everybody understands about Jennie. Jennie is the title character she plays in a movie she has just finished. She's a bit different from Ann Marie, the girl she plays on ABC's That Girl, whcih starts its fourth season soon. "I hope my fans will understand," she says. "Ann Marine, after all, is the National Virgin. And Jennie is an unmarried pregnant lady. But 'Jennie' is an honest film and it isn't dirty at all and I love it." There was some talk of having Ann Marie lose her honorary status this season some of the staff felt she should marry. But the producers surveyed the show's fans and the result overwhelmingly was against marriage for Ann. Mario agrees. "I've always felt," she says "that our show is about a girl who is in that very short stretch of a girl's life when she is free after she has left home and before she gets married. To have her marry now would be to defeat the whole purpose of the show." YAPHET KOTTO is in train ing for the toughtest role of his career when he finishes shooting "The Liberation of Lord Byron Jones," he's off for New York to follow James Earl Jones in "The Great White Hope" on Broadway. "Jones and I have been friends for years," Yaphet says. and Metrocolor AT 8:40 Well, ring my chimes. 1 UIUUKUl we were posing for a Playboy spread! g DAVID NIVEN, Heston's Driveway --"J.

Kotto says he has never been a big fight fan, but now he's in such good shape down to a very taut 200 pounds that he could be a fighter. He has, however, never fought in a ring. . I WENT over to Liberace's house to talk about his new show, on CBS for the summer. But somehow we got on another subject, the strange tale of how tough it is to give away $750,000. In 1963, he was appearing in Pittsburgh. One night, he slept in his dressing room. There were some clothes in the closet which had just been brought back from the cleaners; they had been cleaned with carbon tetrachloride, ' As Lee slept, he inhaled the deadly fumes. He would have died, except someone woke him up with the news that President Kennedy had been shot. They put him in the intensive care unit of a hospital, and a priest came to give him the last rites ot tne cnurcn He was still conscious, and he PEGGY NIELSEN Can Herbie, CINEMA I All Seats $1.00 Mon.

He thought he was going to die, so he wrote a will. - v , "I still had three-quarters of a million left," he said, "and I ,! decided to spend it. It was dif- Ijflcult lod thatiniu om . hospital bed, but I didn't want to take it with me." He bought cars and clothing and jewelry for friends and relatives. And, of course, he lived to see all those gifts received and enjoyed. Speaking of odd stories, Peggy Ann Nielsen Is a repository of them. Peggy Ann is a lovely blonde from Seattle who somehow got to be an expert at South Pacific fire-and-knife dancing. She also juggles. She sings. She dances. She's a whiz at Gung Fo, the Chinese form of karate. She works with animals she toured with Gentle Ben. And now she's an actress, with ' a part due next season on Ivan Tors' next series, Jungle Tales. Once she was doing her fire knife act in Hawaii, While she was performing, a dark woman with blonde hair came to the stage door and asked to see her daughter, the dancer. When she was told Peggy Ann was on stage, she walked away and never came back. But Peggy Ann's mother was in Seattle. The Hawaiians called Peeev Ann "Le Pele," the daughter of Pele, the Fire Goddess. Could it have been Pele who came to the performance that night? Peggy Ann thinks it was. Back in Seattle, Peggy Ann had an old cat and a chihuahua dog. They were friends, and they had two matching green pillows to sleep on. The cat took a hate to its pillow and ripped it to shreds. Some time later, the cat died. One evening, thq dog whined for its pillow. Peggy-Ann gave it to him. Then she felt something behind her back it was the other pillow, the dead cat's pillow. It was completely whole again. The cat used to walk on Peggy Ann's stereo set, and leave its paw prints. After it died, it still left paw prints. Peggy Ann believes her house in Seattle was haunted and that the spirits have followed her down to Los Angeles, where she lives now. She has a clock, a gfit from her sea captain father, which has figures that move when the! switch is switched. The figures tend to move even when nobody has touched the switch. a clean-living, hard-working small car find happiness in today's hectic world? .! Wf&rtfflrSRjttfoL GRADUATE" TENDER. LOVING.
