TUESDAY, OCTOBER 25, 1955 : , ..NINE Noel Coward'Hit'On TV ?erpeU«l Conflict s By JACK O'BKIAN NEW YOHK—(INS)-Nool Cow- ird made Ills television debut in as imarlly feigned, directed and iroduced an intimate revue as vould seem possible. It was magnificently, simply, •ichly charming. Mary Martin co-starred, and hough Mary in her own charming ashion is just as much the darling of international sophisticates, there still is the touch of Texas in her n. outgoing friendliness. •. bward is the epitome of the deceptively languid drawing room exquisite. Beneath that specious ennui beats the stubborn instinct" of a dedicated British bulldog. Coward has' fantastic ^equipment for his trade—an' incisively literate imagery, a trained diction and vocal machinery which ticks off his speediest and craftiest lyrics a disciplined niagara of rills and runs of syllables and amusing detail. His beautifully precise British diction keeps the tiniest verbal detail clear and understandable, precision Instrument able-to shift any gear of verbal diversion. In his literary and inusical creations he has the same trained instincts as In performing; his melodies have the' "constantly surprising refrains" Lorcnz Hart mentioned, and he employes delicate use of unusual words in rhymes and lyrical "notions seldom encount- eitd in popular songs. His pure elegance even in burlesques of American songs (Deep In The Heart of Texas) remains always jerfect, exquisite, offhand, edly gay. Young of the opossum are born in a very immature stale and very small, weighing from" 18 to " grains. TV Versions Of Marriage Depressing 9 Ry CHARLES MERCER NEW YORK l*-The relationship of-husbands and wives, as viewed on television, is becoming a boring stereotype. In this version, holy matrimony is a state of perpetual conflict. Of course there's plenty of con- lict in marriage. If marriage were ust one big sweet confection, the vholc institution might eventually perish of diabetes. So let me emphasize that I'm not plugging here for a perpetually sweet and totally unrealistic view of malrimony.on TV. I simply pro- .est the depressingly large propor- .ion of TV drama and comedy that tritely and with exaggeration PONT PAINTS yoiir dtoka of 572 new decorator colors ...mixtrf to your ordtr <^ Now you can have just the colors you want for every in• terior in matching Gloss, Semi-Gloss and Flat Alkyd'En- ; Uriels.

This girl apparently entered her liome. they said, and they then saw the 14-year-old girl whom they accosted -as she was walking along Willowbrook-Itoad near her home. The pair testified Christman was reals the theme of marriage. Soap Operas Even Worse Not'a night passes that at least one drama is not preoccupied with :he bustup or patchup of a marriage. And as for daytime soap operas'. Rarely does television treat the :heme of marriage without banality. Watch for these developments an the next televised matrimonial :angje you witness: The wife is usually sensitive and perceptive. The husband is usually goodh'earted but inclined to be gather a slob because he's weak or crass or misguided. Occasionally there's a reverse switch, but in general wives have belter characters than husbands on TV. ] .hink it's the advertising agency influence, which is enormous on the scripts of many shows. In the effort to please the ladies, 'we emerge as heels,'gentlemen. At the denouement of this typical marriage drama husband and wife are reunited (hanks to some 'revelation" usually instigated by the wife. Like Depressing Drug I've looked al quite a bit of daytime soap opera. If I were a wom- 1'd consider it- a depressing drug. Its 'conflicts are perpclu- aled by gossip. Its plots revolve around bustups and patchups. Yet in some respects some soap operas are more realistic than some night time dramas. In them, for exam pie, people do separate and get divorced—i>ne woman on one program three times..Like people you know in real life. Yet in general the marriage dramas of TV are not lifelike because their solutions are.contrived and do not stem from true characterization. The bickering is realistic enough, heaven knows. But between the bickering and Uic contrived solutions I've had more than enough of 'em. Picks His Jail TEMPLE, Tex.
