Obviously not everyone is asleep or at church, for "Lamp Unto My Feet" (10 a.m EST) maintains a healthy audience. Furthermore, it recently completed 10 consecutive years on the air, making it one of the oldest programs visible. Finally, it deals with an area of human experience that television usually shuns: religion. Has No Sponsors One of the significant things about the nonsectarian program is that it is unsponsored—either commercially or by those who generally are considered "religious." "People who are religiously oriented usually are in church when we come on the air," says its young producer, Don Kellerman. "We have our greatest influence on the people with whom we most want to communicate — the unchurched." Although its intent is not evangelical, "Lamp Unto My Feet" is religious in the sense that it is concerned with moral problems. And in its decade the program has revealed the immemorial truth that moral problems are as vast as life itself. Other Big Problems Sometimes it concerns itself and its viewers with the garden variety problems—alcoholism, the role of the aged, the pangs of adolescence. Again it will plunge into the bigger jungle problems of ambition and prejudice and vanity. "Our whole point," says Keller- man, "is to reveal a problem but never try to offer a solution. The 15-minute play that dramatizes a problem would be a shoddy production if it tried to solve it. And the 15-minute discussion following the play would be morally shoddy if it tried to solve it." Every Art Form It's regrettable that many efforts at religious programming, although morally worthy, have been artistically shoddy. This certainly is not the case with "Lamp Unto My Feet," which has a renaissance fervor to express a moral subject in the highest terms of art. Thus the program has used almost every art form at its high* est polish—music, the 'drama, the dance, readings from literature — to tell the endless story of man's imperfection.

He appeared in 58 "Blackie" snows starting back in 1951 and thanks to his own efforts with the Screen Actors Guild on the TV residual problem at that time, he's still collection on some to* them. Ail actors collecting residual money can thank Taylor for his early efforts with the Guild. Taylor's Balckie show was filmed at a mad pace — TV wasnt so rich then — but he says the "Rough Riders" series is twice as difficult to do. He says, "As Blackie, I just walked or stood there. Now I'm oo and off a horse, and up and down on a horse all day long. The Door To • Moro BMiftiM You Lipitifk *itd Polish to Match. Merle Norman €<*mttlci
