Ariz. "When I first wulketl onto the Pon- deroa set four years ago," said Lome Greene. "I swore ;lo myself that someday I'd have a house like that. It's - taken four years but we've got the house." Greene and his handsome wile Nancy held the first housewarming for their new home, Ponderosa II, last .week end. The big house is almost an exact duplicate of the ranchhouse Greene (as Pa Cartvvright) and his three sons inhabit each. Sunday night in "Bonanza." . The great log building stands on the sunbaked Arizona plains midway between Mesa and Apache Junction (or midway between the training .grounds of the Houston Lk. 1 Lome Greene y . n Hs wrought-iron doors, the antique furniture that Nancy painstakingly searched for and found. It has the grand staircase of the set rising to a second floor " which isn't there when Greene wants to duplicate bomething, he duplicates it. The guests were mostly old friends Dan Blocker : and Mike Landon, who play Cartwright sons; David Dortort, creator-producer of "Bonanza," dancer-director Gene Nelson, actress Susan Oliver, actors John Conte, Peter Graves and Leslie Nielsen, singer Mel Torme, and others, including one of Greene's oldest and dearest friends, actor Lou Jacobi. . They ate barbecued beef from a chuckwagon and -'square danced to western music, which reminds me that to the list of history's arch villains, Judas, Attila, - Hitler, I would cheerfully add the man who invented . the electric guitar. Pair Share Canadian Background Jacobi like Greene is a product of Canada. They grew up together in Toronto. But while Lome rose to fame -as a Shakespearean star and the foremost Canadian teacher of speech and drama, Lou poked around the ' edges of show business, as a social director at resorts and a small-time comic. Of late, of course, Lou has risen to great eminence in the American theater with his performances in "Diary ,of Anne Frank," "The Tenth Man" and "Come Blow Your Horn." He has just completed a role in Billy Wilder's film, "Irma la Douce," in Avhich, rumor hath it, he is superb. .- Lou was remembering the Greene of Canada: "It's difficult for you to realize how enormously important he was in To- 'rontQ. Students came from 'all over Canada to study with him. I never could afford to. He was a brilliant commentator on the Canadian Broadcasting Co. .system, his name was a household word. But he chucked it all to come to Amen ta for television." - Lou rolled his great brown eyes and studied the massive living room of Ponderosa II the firelight ; catching the beamed ceiling, flaring anew in the richness of polished wood. , , "Not," he said, "that he has done badly." . .Which brought an awful thought to the mind of a ' pretty young lady. She turned on the host and said: . , "Lome, suppose you and Nancy have had your dinner. You're here alone relaxing in front of the fireplace in this house that's a perfect duplication of your set.
