"Continental Classroom" is the name of the Monday through Friday series whose co-partners are NBC, the American Assh! of Colleges for Teacher Education and the Fund for the Advancement of Education.

AUSTIN (Mfort,) HMAID, SAfUft&AY, 27, :* - i *' ion of Teenagers other day that besides about 5,000 students enlisted in the TV •course for regular credits from 250 colleges and universities, mail about the series is pouring in-from view* ers who include teachers, technicians, advanced students, housewives "and just about everybody." Dr. White, professor of physics at the University of California at Berkeley and consultant to the Atomic Energy Commission, said that "one of the most significant things to me is the large numbers of youngsters between the ages of 6 and 14 Who regularly watch the program. Important Group "Probably most of them can't work the problems which we pose. But in the long run this group of young viewers may be the most important contribution of 'Continental Classroom,' since it is influencing them to take an interest in scientific careers at an early age." The variety of viewers is sur- : prising. In Montclair, N.J., a high,, school class gathers at 6:30 a.m. each morning to take the course.! Not long ago, when the lights were turned on. after the. program was over, teacher and students found an elderly couple sitting in the back of the room. ' The man explained that they watched the program every morning and that their set had gone on the blink the night before. So— In Dr. White's words, "this program shows that there's an appreciative audience for education on television."

Mr. and Mrs. Robert Young Wed 3 Times Without Any Divorces By DOROTHY ROE HOLLYWOOD (AP) — it's not often a girl gets to marry the same man three times, with no intervening divorces. This is the unique accomplishment of charming, red-haired Betty Young, wife of the screen and TV star, Robert Young, and moth- •r of four daughters. The first Young wedding was performed by a justice of the peace in Santa Ana, Calif., when Bob and Betty were very young. The second took place on their 25th wedding anniversary, last March, in the Episcopal chapel of the Bishop School at La Jolla, alma mater of all the Young daughters who are old enough. The third showed up as an episode in Young's long-standing TV aeries, "Father Knows Best," just • few weeks ago. It Was High Time "I don't know whether H was fbe children's idea or ours," says Betty, "but everybody agreed that aince we never bad a church wedding U was high time to have one, and our silver wedding a»- •iyersary was § food date. "So we went through {be wbde ceremony at the beautiful little chapel on the campus of the school which has been a sort of second home to our daughters. The ceremony was performed by the chaplain, Canon Frederick J. Stevens, and Bob's best man was the J.P. who married us the first time — only now he's Superior Court Judge Kenneth Morrison. My attendant was my best friend, Mrs. Louis B. Mayer, and all four of our daughters looked on. Solemn And Lovely "It was all solemn and lovely, and gave us a nice, glowing feeling, since both of us had become serious Episcopalians through our eldest daughter, Carol Anne. "I bad no idea they were going to use the whole thing on Bobby's show until I saw the program a few weeks ago, while I was in the hospital recuperating from some minor surgery. "It gives you a strange feeling to see your own life being played on a television screen by your own husband and his TV wife. But I enjoyed the film version fif my wedding almost as much as I did the first two real ones." Like Average Family Many episodes of Young's TV series parallel events in bis own lively family, although both he and Betty insist they never interfere with the script writers. His screen family consists of actress Jane Wyatt as his wife, and three children. His real family consists of Betty and their four daughters: Carol Anne, now Mrs, Arthur Proffitt and a teacher at the Buckley School in Los Angeles; Barbara, 21, student at U.S.C.; Betty Lou, 15, a student at the Bishop School and Kathleen, 13, who is in the seventh grade at the Buckley School, where her sister teaches. Lilts *f Friends The Young home in Beverly Hills is headquarters for half of the younger generation of Holly, wood, with boyfriends and girl* friend* of the young.daughters always welcome and always present. "Bobby and I always put our family first," Betty says, "And I guess that's why he's able to be such a convincing father Of fe* screen." 1 Network Television m Wednesday, Dectmber 31 (t)'M*orti Program it in Cotw GfQ3 ftftjti $*~0flvid sfoitti 6:10 *.«.'
