A top network executive says, There's a million dollars in it for he person who comes up with a good new idea for presenting news n TV." ' In the field of children's TV pro;rams, Capt. Kangaroo seems to have the rookie of the year award vrapped up in his pouch. This CBS ,how has been acclaimed by parents, psychologists -and — what's nore unusual—kids. Each group eems delighted with the old cap- am and his daily bag of surprises. It turns out that the old captain s a 28-yea'r-old ex-page boy named Bob Keeshan. He's a happy, pudgy •nan with three children of his own iut no grandfathers'. And maybe lis own lack of grandpas is one 'eason why he's so successful with ihildren's TV shows. "I Ijke to think of our program," IB says, "as less of a show ancl nore of a visit..It's a visit from heir favorite grandfather, who :omes with all sorts of tricks and lories and surprises. I never knew ny own grandfathers, but I ima- ;ine that's what they do." Grandfatherless Keeshan had a ormal, happy childhood on Long sland. He started his professional areer as an NBC page boy and, i the early TV days, he was im- Tessed -into service lo help Bob imith. Smith was building the show lat turned into "Howdy-Doody," nd Keeshan was the first Clara- elle. Later, he 'had two shows of own on ABC-TV—including the very popular "Tinker's Workshop" — and then he went into partnership with Jack Miller to create "Capt. Kangaroo." Keeshan and filler are saddled with one rather unique commoditj —high principles. So far, their pro gram is unsponsored, because th pair have turned down offers they "consider unfitting." ; . "We won't have' a sponsor wh wants us to high-pressure kids intc calling Mommy in from the kitch en," Keeshan says:.."And we're not going to slap the Capt. Kangaroo name on just any merchandisin, scheme, cither. We'll do some tie ins—we like money, after all- some games, pre-school toys, somi kiddie records we're making foi Columbia. But"-we're being care ful." Which, after all, is what you'( expect from your favorite grand father. ». * * Maurice Chevalier is one of the few remaining stars who live up to the name.

TV. Properly Used, Can Help Teachers BY HUGH MOnniS 'WASHINGTON — (INS) - The woman with the world 1 ' largest classroom said today that television—properly used—can become the teachers' best friend. Educators, parents and children can all share the benefits accord' inj; to Dr. Frances Horwich— "Miss Frances" to millions of preschool youngsters. The woman who conducts • "Ding Dong School" on NSC Television said in an. interview that "There's no question about it. Television studies can teach as well ai entertain." Here's how she thinks it will work: "First,'more programs are going to be directed at the child. For example, we rre planning a program which will actually help learn to read. We will do this in the same -vay it can be done in-the classroom—by building an interest in reading, helping children to enjoy books, and actually supplementing their classroom work. "Then, TV can be of a great aid in helping to train teachers by keeping them aler 1 and well-irt- formed on' their subjects and by keeping interest in the' teaching profession at a high peak. 'You knew, some stations already offer TV courses, and there's going to be much more of this. "And finally, TV can do so many things for youngsters that their school 'may not be able to afford. Programs can be : really helpful to the children in their courses, in music,. art. science and social . A TV trip to the zoo. for example, or a symphony orch estra." , What happens if children begin spending too much time in front of a. television screen? "Miss Frances' said: "I think that's an individual matter for each parent to decide. If a person is concerned over the child's interest in television he will sit down with a youngster each week end and plan togethe- the pro- rams to be viewed during the week.

"Of course, if in the midcjle of the week the child suddenly decides that there's a special program, he just has to see, the parent can talk it over and reach a decision. "You know parents should try to set aside sonic time to watch programs with their youngsters. Both will benefit, but parents in. particular will have an opportunity • to see firsthand just how a child- learns. That's something that will give both the parent and a child, new confidence. "And it's a fine idea to discuss',' the programs once they are over. That helps the child build up his; taste and makes him more select- ' ivc."
