Method to Take Over Commercials Coming — commercials done by "method" actors. The so-called "method" Is an- acting system populrrized by Actors' Studio people. And one of its trademarks is that the actors see mto be undergoing a strong experience. Commercial producers think such an attitude might help sell products. So they're hiring method-trained actors for their sales pitches. And so many commercial actors are seeking out teachers who can give them the method training. Among the popular coaches are Curt C o n w a y and Lonnie Chapman, who number among their pupils such commercial personalities as Julie Meade Bess Myerson and Lee Meriwether. So don't be surprised some day if the man with the tattoo on his hand comes on in a torn T-shirt. AUSTIN (Mtrm;) HERAlD, SATURDAY, DECEMBER 6, 1958-3 RECORD BREAKER — Bess Myerson will break a record for women in television this month when she completes her seven'h year of Monday through Friday appearances as hostess on "The Big Payoff." Helping her break the record will be Bob Paige, emcee, who observes his first anniversary on the show. Colin Turnbull, famous Scottish anthropologist, spent the last three years living with pigmy tribes in the Belgian Congo. Shortly he will become-director of the African Department of the Museum of Natural History in New York. Snead Nezds More Tomato Cans as TV Golf Nets $2,000 a Round By FRANK ECK Sammy Snead has won so many golf tournaments in the last 23 years that fellow professionals insist he's a millionaire. Some kid about it, others take it seriously. "He's so rich," Jimmy Dcma- ret has said, "that be never gets time to count the money he has buried in those old tomato cans around Greenbrier." That's White Sulphur Springs, W. Va., where Snead is the home pro in mild months. For the last two winters he's taken on another job — pro at Boca Raton, Fla., and maybe now he's burying to* mato cans in that locale.' Snead will be past 47 when the U. S. Open rolls around at Winged Ffcbr next June. It's the one tournament he's been after ever •bice 1937 when he finished second to Ralph Guldahl. Sammy has qualified and played in the last 18 National Opens. It might have been more but World War n prevented five Opens in the mid- 408. Right now Snead has his mind set on winning the All-Star Golf, ABC's filmed television series which can be seen each Saturday at 5 p.m., Eastern Standard Time. The sweet-swinging Snead was peeved in last year's TV series. After he bowed to Lloyd Mangrum In his first match Sammy vowed to do better next time. "I've never seen Sam played better," says Ray O'Brien, former tournament director for the pros who is directing the TV golf series. "He's been chewing up opponents one after another man-to-man matches. "At Sea Island, Ga., he shot a 9 under par 63 for a new course record. At the 15th tee we announced to the gallery that Sam could tie the course record with pars on the last four holes. All he did was birdie, birdie, birdie and eagle." (That's 5 under par). Because the TV golf series Is filmed there's a deep secrecy about the eventual winner. Sammy crushed Argentina's Roberto DeVicenzo in the first match and with $2,000 to the winner of each test it would not be surprising to see Sammy make a habit of winning. Seldom does a pro get two grand for an 18-hole match and Sam, on many occasion, has said: "Money talks." "I've been hitting the ball real well," Snead said between TV matches. "But I'm making no predictions about this round-robin, the National Open or any other Radio to Give Dramatic Story of Medicine wuvMM* 1 SAMMY SNEAD The dramatic story of medicine in Minnesota will be featured in the 12th and final Wcco Radio "Minnesota Milestones" broadcast a', 1 p.m., Sunday. "Medicine Man to Wonder Drug" Is the name of this hour- long Minnesota Centennial broadcast. It re-creates many famous Incidents in Minnesota's colorful past and looks at the present and Into the future. The program covers another fascinating chapter of Minnesota history — the story of medicine from the time of the medicine man on to the days of home remedies and patent medicines, the rise of a competent medical profession, stripping the fakes and quacks of respectability, the thrilling story of the Mayo Clinic, the University of Minnesota and the wonder of modern medical science. The dramatization is told by Cedrlc Adams, Dr. E. W. Zle- barth and Bob DeHaven with a cast of actors plus special music and sound effects. The program will be repeated in full at 8 p.m., Dec. 17. "Minnesota Milestones" has received two awards for the manner in which it has depicted the state's history during this, its centennial year ... the Order of the North Star, presented to State Sen. P. J. Hoi and by Gov. Orville Freeman, and the national award of merit of the American Association for State and Local History. in tournament. I'm just playing them as they come up. "Playing these matches are a lot tougher than regular tournaments because of the long wait between shots while they move the cameras into position. It upsets my timing and concentration. The cameras, however, bother me less than in a regular tournament. "On tour you never know when someone is going to turn a camera on you and sometimes it gets upsetting." Producer Pete DeMet has been using seven cameras for the TV golf. There's no such thing as a retake. Whatever action the camera misses is gone forever. De- Met is making certain his men are in position long before Snead gets set to take his beautifully grooved swing. Snead has won the Canadian Open, Masters and PGA three times each and the British Open once. But in the U. S. Open his best has been four second places. If be can keep his game hot for the 1959 U. S. Open he'll be 'hough over the long Winged Foot ourse. However, if he misses again he can always go back to West Virginia and dig up a few of those tomato cans. Of course, we're kidding. Snead puts his money in places much safer than old tomato cans. • Network Television I Is^BiMsVHViWWI i — i i i i*MWH<w imm ^^^^"•'"'""'""'^^^•••••^•H Monday, December 8 (C) Means »roo;rom is In Color 6:05 «.«. 5 — David Stone 6.30 *.m.

Tall, friendly Jimmy and his tall, friendly music are a big thing on the CBS- TV afternoon schedule. For Jimmy, the current state of pop music Is something of a drag. "A songwriter came in to see me," he says. "I asked him if he had any new ballads. He said, 'No, just novelty tunes'. Oh, boy, I'm so sick of novelties — "The Shark In the Bathtub,' for heaven's sakes." Jimmy Jimmy, who just did a song by that name for Columbia Records, figures that maybe the time has come to "insist—or, at least, suggest" what songs he'd like to sing. Up until now, he's operated on the theory that "I'm not the type to tell people their business." The Plainview boy is now a Greenwich, Conn., commuter. Every day, just like the stock brokers and advertising geniusu, be hops the train into New York. He says this new life is "all right— a feller has to make a living." Between success on TV and in records. Dean is doing OK. But he says what he really does best is neither of those fields, but the fine art of steak-cooking. "Don't laugh, he cautions. "If anything ever happens to this show business, I'm going to open up a place. I'll make out because nobody can cook steak like me." Is his steak special? "Yes," he says, with a pitying smile. "It's special all right. I just can't tell you any more than that I charcoal broil 'em," So there may not be any more sharks in the bathtub, but there'll be plenty of steaks on the fire.
