'"IB Part IV-MON., MAR. S.l THE TV SCENE I What Critics at B j Home Are Saying BY CECIL SMITH, WE GET LETTERS After watching the live television coverage from start to finish of Col. Glenn's historic flight and then watching the actual live broadcast of his return to Cape Canaveral, I can't help feeling TV is one of our most wondrous and wonderful inventions. By what other means could I personally experience the tensions, excitement and sincere pride I felt while watching the orbital flight, and this was actually happening while I sat there and watched? MRS. NORMAN EILTS, Woodland Hills. Cecil Smith I noticed the prologue given before the last excellent adult production of Play of the Week, stating the particular type of audience the show was designed for. This idea might be followed on other shows. For example, before a private eye series, the announcer might say: "All mature adults who do not enjoy senseless blood-letting might better use this half-hour napping." Or before a situation comedy: "This show is designed for those adults whose taste in humor has declined since childhood." PEGGI RANDOLPH, Los Angeles. Or for Ben Casey: "Brain surgery, anyone?" ; I would like to nominate the actress who played the - part of Mrs. Fain, the older nurse, on Dr. Kildare oppo-j site Margaret O'Brien (Feb. 15) for an Emmy Award. i By her superlative acting, she gave dignity, sincerity . and beauty to a part which might have been only tear- jerky and shallow. In her lite scene with Miss O'Brien, instead of acting piteously she gave understanding. I ': found it personally rewarding to learn that I belong to an openly recognized host i of dedicated nurses, in-? stead of being an odd-ball. ?; ROBIN A. CARTER, ' Santa Ana. X Nurse Fain is played by l Jean lnness and is a regu-flar on the Kildare series. l.She is the wife of actor 'iVictor Jory. She gained great Southland fame play-ling the role of Ramona in i Hcmct's Ramona Pageant. The Judy Garland Show was the most entertaining evening my husband and I have seen in many years on television . . . We cheered and cried . . . f. MRS. M. C. MORGENTHALER, Reseda. ! Your article on Judy Garland is fantastic in its praise , of a very mediocre program . . . MRS. E. B. KELLAM, Los Angeles. I'm in a highly euphoric state induced by Judy. She was marvelous . . . HELEN L. INGRAHAM, Encino. I How you could ever exclaim as you did over the Judy . Garland show beats me. We thougtit it a horrible ? farce . . . MRS. E. WEATHERLY, Los Angeles. ' Miss Garland was' a pretty child, is an attractive ; woman, but she has a shrewish voice and the manner- isms of an advanced neurotic . . . : . HOWARD H. HOLMAN, Los Angeles. : Welcome to the cult for Judy! I've been a card-' carrying member since last September when she ap-V peared at Hollywood Bowl ... ; NETTA PFEIFER, Beverly Hills. . ; Et cetera, el cetera, et cetera ...

Too bod Grtsly wasn't around KNX that time when the homes of two ministers were bombed while they were lecturing on the clangers of extremism en The Right. Came the flash! Our Paul Udell high-tailed it to the home of the Rev. Simmons and got an interview on tape. At the same instant the KNX news bureau phoned Bob Ferris at home and bid him speed to the airport where he caught Attorney General Kennedy and taped ; his comment and interpretation of the meaning of the bombings. Simultaneously KNX news-' man Hugh McCoy recorded a phon interview with State Attorney General Mask. Meanwhile another member of the KNX news team obtained a recording of the previous night's meeting at which the two ministers were speaking when their homes were blasted. While all this was going on our Pat McGuinness rushed downtown to re-cord Chief Parker's press conference. Then he covered the mayor's press conference wherein His Honor called on the police department's bomb expert to explain about the bombs and the probable nature of the bums who planted the bombs. Bob Ferris, having gotten Bobby Kennedy on tape, charged onward to interview, tapewise, the Rev. Walker and. wife. Then he got to Dorothy Healey, a local leader in the Communist Party. Hugh McCoy ' recorded on Interview with Tex Talbert of the John Birch Society.! Don Ross went out and got man-en-the-street comment about the bombings. ; Despite having bad trouble changing a typewriter ribbon, a KNX re-write man combined all of the gathered material into a succinct report of the event and this went on the KNX air before Variety's editors were out of bed, most likely. ... All of the data and tap-ings of the voices of people involved in the story, plus authoritative opinion by the Attorney General and others, ' were expertly woven into the entire daylong KNX Radio coverage of the story plus a complete wrap-up that went on the KNX air at 6:30 p.m. over the KNX Kaleidoscope. The wrap-up had ovary-thing-every side of the story. This, surely, is not broom, closet news reporting. ; Of course the bombings tnnlc nil place KNXclusive way last month but o m e-thing like it c o u 1 d happen today, and again to-dav.
