It may also be hazardous to reveal this. Bui anyone who looks and can »ct like the beautiful Cockney- born thespian need not flinch at the exposure of such a vital statistic.

Although Miss Simmons h a · been fortunate in playing a number of prominent roles, she claims good parts (or women are more difficult to find than .hey are fcr men. 'It's a man's world," says the pert-nosed actress. "Women's roles should be supporting, anyway -- at least that's the way I feel." Speaking about the man's world in acting, Miss Simmons says that three of her favorites are Laurence Olivier, Marlon Brando and Spencer Tracy, the latter being such a favorite that she named one of two daughters, I OUHQ LOVGTS ·Tracy, after the aclor. Her other daughter, Kate, was named after Kalherine Hepburn. The conversation got around to living in New York City.

SANTA FE-TA 7-2*11 Featur* At: 6:00-8:00 10:00 NATIONAL GENERAL CORPORATION FOX M1DWESTTHEATRES By Jack Gould (C) N.Y. Times News SV. NEW YORK -- In the deluge oi legalistic and intricate papers on the future of communications, there occasionally emerge a few words of almost poetic simplicity that, in their lean imagery, touch both the mind and heart. Such an experience occurred 10 days ago in Washington when Edwin H. Land, chairman of the Polaroid corporation, inventor and practicing philosopher, was called upon for a few remarks in connection with the hearings of the Senate Commerce committee on the future of educational television. Land was a member of the Carnegie commission on educational television and it was in that capacity that he appeared as a witness. In a voice of quiet resolve, he spoke extemporaneously of what he thought was meant by the "potential of communications". In the prccess, he advanced his own concept of the goal of education and the joy of learning. Resisted Temptation Excerpts from his remarks follow: "At the beginning of our study (by the Carnegie commission), there was a good deal of temptation to approach public television in terms of criticism of the existing system. We resisted that temptation. We took the view that the present system has made great contributions anc will continue to make them. But those contributions will have to be within the framework of whal is permitted in a system thai has to appeal to 20-million view ers at the same time. "We do not feel that we ar making a system for education ·e do not feel that we are mak-. ng a dual system. Rather, we re exploring ways of bringing nterest to all aspects cf thought, the ways that children think. "The trouble with the commercial stations now is that they cannot experiment even when they want to. Not experiment in the avant-garde sense of discovering newer and far-out arts, but just plain experiment to find out what would be better than what they offer. "They don't have that freedom. By having programs that are designed for 100,000 to 500,000 people, we feel that we will earn ways to make extremely interesting many things in what WB call 'the intellectual domain.' But we need more than that, things in which the healthy child is interested. "We use the word 'diversity.' We think that the country desperately needs a new medium to bring itself together and to explore itself. The fact that television is taking as much time as t does means that it Is taking hat time away from, opportunities whereby people can learn ife -- will be one of the great unctions of this noncommercial ystem. We.are losing this generation. We all know that. We need a way to get them back. "We have talked around. I ;ot my barber to make a list of vhat he wanted to see.
