Fifth radio series to start By JAV SHARBUTT AP Television Writer NEW YORK (AP)-Thanks to a revived audience interest in more than music, news and sports, no less than four new radio drama or humor series are on the nation's airwaves these days. Now a fifth series is afoot. It's the National Public Radio Theater, a dramatic effort that lasts an hour. Distribution of it began this month to the 163 public radio stations in the federally funded National Public Radio system. NPR officials say a total of 11 of the weekly shows will be sent the stations this year, with a minimum of 26 new ones ordered for 1975. All will feature original or adapted material written only for radio. What prompted it? "One of the big things that moved us ahead was the success of the 'CBS Radio Mystery Theater,'" an NPR spokesman said, referring to the hour-long, weeknight series that made its debut in January. "I think it proved the point that we've been trying to push," he said. "That there is an audience for radio drama if they, the audience, knows it's there." Other radio series now on the air are the Mutual Broadcasting network's "Zero Hour," a suspense effort; a "National Lampoon" comedy series and "Sounds of the City," a soap Just Saving Dollars IsNotEnough- \buNeedDollars Working fbr\ou!

Our fixed, deferred annuity opera about a black family. The radio plays are produced by EARPI AY, a joint project of the University of Wisconsin's extension school and the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, at the university's radio station in Madison. Karl Schmidt, a professor of educational communications, supervises the project. He says the show draws its thespians from New York, Chicago and the Minneapoli&St. Paul area as well as from the studentry. How does he get his scripts? "Mostly, we work through drama agents in New York," he said, "but we also solicit manuscripts through ads in the New York Times, the Saturday Review and other publications like that." The pay for the scrivening is more inspirational than any known muse. Schmidt says an original, one-hour radio drama is worth $2,000 on acceptance, regardless of the author's fame or lack of it. Question: Since few public radio stations can afford to advertise, how can listeners find out (a) the call letters of the nearest NPH outlet, and (b) when the programs air? A spokesman said the best way is for the listener to write NPR's office in Washington, .D.C., and ask which NPR station is in his or her area. Then call the station and ask when the show begins.

Holmquist, former Minnesota Senate majority leader, was to be named to the new state Ethics Commission today by DFL Gov. Wendell Anderson. Holmquist, a Republican from Grove City, was instrumental in passage of Anderson's tax and school finance legislation in the 1971 legislature. He also led efforts to amend the state Constitution to permit annual sessions of the legislature. Holmquist served in the House for eight years and in the Senate for 18. He was Senate majority leader for the three sessions prior to his retirement in 1972. Holmquist operates a retail lumber business in Grove City. The Kthics Commission was created by the legislature this year to administer the new campaign finance regulations. The commission also will oversee the activities of lobbyists and rule on ethics complaints against state officials. Under the law creating the commission, no more than three of its six members can support the same political party. Two must be former legislators, one from each party.

I've read that siir-fry Chinese food is an excellent idea for weight-reducing diets. But I thought fried foods were really taboo if one wanted to lose weight. What's up? A. As a general rule, fried foods are not recommended for dieters. However, stir-fry Chinese food can be an exception. Unfortunately, many of the stir-fry dishes served in restaurants contain entirely too much fat. But made at home, where you can control that variable, Chinese stir-fry combinations can provide an almost endless variety of main dishes and vegetable accompaniments for the dieter's menus. The recipes often suggest starting with raw meat, fish or poultry, but you can also use leftover meat. And at most, it takes only a few minutes to prepare. If you have access to an Oriental grocery where you can buy some of the fresh vegetables, fresh ginger root, and interesting seasonings, fine. If not, some of the vegetables, such as bean sprouts, bamboo shoots, and water chestnuts—all of which contain few calories—are available in the special foods sections of nost supermarkets. But even without these, you can create excellent dishes using almost any familiar vegetables, such as string beans, green peppers, onions, cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, tomatoes, or even zucchini squash. Two, three, or even more vegetables are often used in the same main dish. In a typical recipe the garlic (and ginger root if you have it) are browned first, then the meat is added, followed by a seasoning of soy sauce, a bit of sherry and a pinch of sugar. Then the vegetables are stirred in briefly, some broth is added, and the pan covered to allow the vegetables to cook until barely done. Finally, a small amount of cornstarch paste is added as thickening. If you do begin using Chinese stir-fry recipes, three points will help you to keep calories at a minimum: first, use less oil than the recipe suggests; second, trim meat of all visible fat before cooking; and third, drain any excess fat before adding the vegetables. matologic reasons. On the other hand, in infants up to a year of age, toxicity develops far more rapidly, within a few months — and on a much lower dose. Doses as low as 18,000 International Units have been reported to cause toxicity. It is because very young children are so susceptible to the harmful effects of excesses of not only Vitamin A, but Vitamin I) as well, that the policy of supplementing foods with these vitamins is under current review by the FDA.

A spokesman said Rohan, 33, had recently been re-examined and confirmed as a permanent mental ease. "We see no reason to continue his hospitalization in Israel," the spokesman said, adding the man would be sent to Australia within the next two months. Rohan sot the 1,200-year-old mosque ablaze Aug. 21, 1969, touching off a storm of anti-Israeli protest throughout the Moslem world. The mosque, which was badly damaged, is one of Islam's most hallowed shrines. Rohan testified at his trial that he was ordered by God to burn down the mosque and rebuild the Jewish temple of Solomon on the site. A Christian from Sydney, Rohan said God promised to make him king of Jerusalem. Psychiatrists said Rohan was an acute schizophrenic. the Persian Gulf, killing all 49 persons aboard.

Regular SM9.9S NOW 299 LIFE INVESTORS Q. I have been taking a inullivitamin supplement which contains 8,000 International Units of Vitamin A. After reading in your column about Vitamin A toxicily, I have become more aware of the number of foods which are supplemented with Vitamin A. I'm concerned about whether the cumulative effect of all the Vitamin A I'm getting is rtangerous. A. If you are eating a normal diet and taking only one multivitamin pill containing 8.000 International UniUs of Vitamin A. there is little chance that you will develop Vitamin A toxicity. The long-term tiose which will produce toxicity varies with the individual, but it has been estimated that about 100,000 units taken regularly over a period ranging from several months to several years will produce symptoms of toxicity. This usually occurs among individuals who are taking the vitamin for der- Q. I was at a dinner party last night where the hostess served an eggplant appetizer. There was some debute about how many calories there arc in eggplant Can you tell me? A. Eggplant is very low in calories. A half-cup of cooked eggplant supplies only about 20 calories. In addition, it contains some iron and a small amount of B Vitamins. Just how many calories were in the appetizer you ate is a different matter. Many recipes suggest browning the eggplant in oil. Because it is a very watery vegetable, it absorbs great quantities of oil. Consequently, most eggplant dishes are caloric powerhouses. It is quite possible, however, lo make an excellent low- calorie appetizer from eggplant. The eggplant is baked whole, peeled and chopped. It is then mixed with tomatoes, garlic, minced onion and a small amount cf oil, and seasoned with wine vinegar, salt, pepper, a pinch of sugar and some dill. You can use eggplant in low calorie main dishes, too. It can be split, seeded and stuffed with seasoned ground meat that has been browned a bit to get rid of the excess fat. And eggplant can be stuffed with fish mix- lures, too. If you choose your recipes carefully, there are many ways to serve eggplant without running yourself into caloric ruin!
