AUSTIN (M?*n.) HERAtO, SATURDAY, .DECEMBER «, 1958-7 MOUNTAIN HIDEWAY — Steve Cochran plays with Shane, a German Shepherd, and Taby, a deer. The pool (background) has an island. Who Says Hollywood Is Losing Its Characters? Take a Look By BOB THOMAS HOLLYWOOD (AP)—Those who think that Hollywood is losing its characters should take a trip to Steve Cochran's house. Some placet It's sot a swimming pool that looks more like a mountain lake, complete with island. Also 25 animals, including two • goats and a deer named Taby. The house clings to a hillside. The first greeters are Shane, a German shepherd, and his pal Taby, an extremely companionable deer of four months. There are cats all over the place. Steve in Blue Jeans Steve appears in blue jeans, dirty shirt and bare feet—he's no beatnik, just likes comfort. He explains about Taby: It was found on a mountain road with rear end smashed by a car. Steve adopted Art Linkletter Books 3 Contests for Show Miss California versus Miss Florida, a small boy versus Rin Tin Tin and a studio gu<-st against an an alarm clock will highlight Art Linkletter's "People Are Funny" Dec. 13 Donna Brooks and Marcla Vali- bus, who were Miss California and Miss Florida, respectively, in the Miss Universe Contest, will be asked to judge human nature, in a field in which a beauty winner should be an expert, namely men. Miss Valibus was runner up in the Miss Universe Contest and also was Queen of lost year's Orange Bowl game. Linkletter will present three German shepherd dogs on the stage and invite a small boy from the audience to pick out Rin Tin Tin, famous canine star of TV and screen. The master-of-ceremonies will roam through the studio audience interviewing guests. The person to whom he is talking when an alarm clock goes off will win a trip to anywhere in the world. On tonight's Linkletter show, John Stevens, 92, a mountaineer from the Ozarks will be a guest. it, had a vet fix its hind quarters with steel pins. Taby is recovered now, he adds, and is handy around the house. Loves cigarette butts and cleans out all the ash trays. Only trouble: Taby drinks. It sneaks around at parties and takes sips from the guests' glasses. Steve wanders through the house, which is a normal California ranch-type with a 50-year-old slot machine and an ancient piano. Outside, he shows the sunken bar he is building. It will house some huge whisky barrels, in which he plans to make his own wine. Monstrous Pool Then he ambles down the two- acre estate to his latest addition. It's a monstrous swimming pool with a tropical island in the middle. "The pool started out to be 48 feet long," Steve says, "but by the time I finished, it was 66 feet. I'm going to stock it with perch." The pool, which is classified as a reservoir for tax reasons, will eventually have a waterfall flowing into it and a mountain stream continuing down the mountain. Cost of the project: $12,000. t Goats, Too In another part of the grounds, Steve introduces two other pals, Gretchen and Heidi. Both goats, but one smells like a goat and the other doesn't. "Cats?" says Cochran. "I've got seven of them—at at mealtime; three more wild ones come out of the brush. One cat is named Zsa Zsa—she's mean and unfriendly and won't eat with the other cats. She's a real cool cat." And so is a guy named Steve Cochran. Does Your TV Set Make Your COMPETITION —- Miss California (left) and Miss Florida chat with Art Linkletter about the Dec. 13 TV show.
