I have a large collection of single gloves which 1 remembered bu left behind the mates of. And when 1 meet someone with a familiar face and a forgotten name ] say "Hi" and hate myself. (Some people say "Hi there," but I believe if you're going to be rude you don't need to expand on '(..• "Am I," I asked Dr. Bruno Furst, the nation's leading memory expert, "abnormal?" "You are very normal," said Dr. Furst, comfortingly. '.'Generally speaking, women are a little better ai. remembering people's names than men are, and men arc belter at remembering texts and dates than women are. But when you put the faults of both men and women together, you strike a sort of average." Average in this case, he explained, means a lazy mental attitude and a shortage of what he refers to as "hooks" in the brain cells." The best way to remember names and faces and make the twain meet in the cranium, he explained, is to develop mental "hooks," upon which to hang associations. And through associations of thought, a person can remember anything he wants to remember Then, instead of saying "Hi" to a familiar face, you can address it — "Why hello, Ernest .Addleman from Darien, Connecticut, and how are your three children and the old English sheepdog?" Dr. Furst, whose teachings in memory are forming hooks in 75,000 student brains from coast to Coast, first began worrying about remembering things in the 1920's when, as a law student at the University of Munich he found he could not "cram" so effectively as fellow students. He studied the arts of memory and association, began teaching it and writing pamphlets and books on it, and is by now the most bulging-brained menmoncst (memory expert) .extant. After Hitler's rise he came to this country and he now teaches classes in U. S. universities, runs in own N. Y. C. school and correspondence courses, and has the reputation for being more dependable than a herd of elephants in the field. A mild-mannered gentleman who rarely speaks unless he has a hook to plant in a companionable brain, he concedes that "the current tempo of life is making people more and more forgetful—and it iakes a good deal of mental regimenting to dust off the brain processes." It can and should be done, however, he insists. Life is more fulfilling • if you remember what is [oing one. Dr. Furst admits there is one catch to memory-cultivation.

It wil. be a year when the program ol 90 minutes and longer is commonplace. This, it seems to me, is a healthy development for both the industry and the viewing public. As far as the industry is concerned big programs—in concept as well as length—are a strong answer to the proponents of pay-see TV. A public (hat already has a variety BALTIMORE Mi — If the Slat' administration is to hold budge figures for next year within prescn bounds, it will have to do sonr sharp pruning. All but four State agencies hav submitted their requests, the De partment of Budget and Procure information about life which you would sooner forget. Is there any available instructor on the art of forgetting? We asked. Dr. Furst thought a moment, and you could almost see the hooks rembling in his cells.

Some observers believe that the networks' bitter opposition to pay- see TV has inspired the trend to bigger programs. The motive is unimportant. What matters is that the public is benefiting with a variety of more imaginative programs than it saw a year andj more ago. Within the 90-minute. format television has demonstrated it can hold both the lazy or I-only-want- to-be-arriused audience and the alert or let-me-think-about-this audience. It's demonstrating its holding power weekly with a'variety of 90-minute programs that would have been amazing a few years ago. . Ford Star Jubilee (CBS-TV), in presenting Noel Coward and Maryi Martin as the only performers in ; a 90-minute period, uncovered a huge audience eager to be amused. Edward R. Murrow's See It Now pulls a big audience that wants to think about it. NBC-TV holds these diverse audiences in equally diverse 90-minute formats. Now_ Robert E. Kintner, President of ABC, has placed his network 'on ' record as following the trend begun by NBC and CBS "It is my guess," he says, "that next season will see many one- and-a-half and two-hour programs in the daytime and nighttime on a regular basis . . . There is nothing sacred about the half-hour and hour timing- of programing." Great length or size is not necessarily a virtue in any branch of the arts or entertainment. But greater time means greater freedom for experimentation to many of television's first-rate artists. The fact the viewing public has clearly demonstrated it likes and wants more big-size TV programs is a challenge to the industry and its best talents. Aulo Crash Nets Woodsman Deer One hunter yesterday spent an unsuccessful day in the woods, bu didn't come empty handed. He got a buck on the highway with his car. John Bowen. of Seat Pleasant near Washington, D. C., who is staying at the Gunter Hotel in Frostburg, went on a hunting trip in the Negro Mountain section bui didn't get a shot at a deer.
