Twenty Logansport, Indiana, Pharos-Tribune Many TV Comics Tumble, But Phil Silvers Still Clicks NEW YORK (UP)— This has]platoon. been a sad season for the funny- bone. Ernie Kovacs, one of TV's larger talents, no logger has his own show. Sid Caesar, who kicks off a pre-shrunk • series on ABC-TV next month, hasn't been seen at all. Jackie Gleason has been playing golf. What's on TV? Well, there's Red Skelton, but he's for specialized tastes — for specialists of about the age nine. Groucho Marx confines himself to that quiz show. There's George Gobel, but Lonesome George doesn't seem to take off anymore. Silvers As Sgt. Bilko Is that all? No, thank goodness, that isn't all. There is still Phil Silvers — Sgt. Ernie Bilko and that wacky, wonderful CBS-TV The Silvers' show is now in its third year. Tuesday night's episode was a typical essay in insanity.

Bilko discovery that he is really a lieutenant, a mix- up over some back pay am' some other narrative salad too complicated to put into English. Algebra maybe. But not English. Calls it Funny Anyway, it was funny. Silvers' Bilko is the most perfectly realized character i:n TV. And Silvers plays it with the casual ease of the blessed. Bilko is a swindler, a liar, a cheat. He is a card sharp, a borrower of money, a wench-ogler and snorer of loud snores. But he triumph. Each Silvers show is a kind of small morality play in which evil gets its come-uppance and virtue emerges victor. In Tuesday night's episode, Sgt. Bilko enlisted for three' more years. Here's hoping he makes it as a 30-year man. is also endearing. That is Silvers' The channel swim. ..

If we must have panel shows, "To Te!l The Truth" is about as painless as any. And Jack Paar adds sharpness to the board. ABC-TV's "Sugarfoot" came up with the night's most beautiful line.
