"CAfiNFERRER A011 Bob Dylan Gu sf On "Us Crane" Wednesday MY LIVING DOLL: 7 pm, Channels 7 and 12--Peter Rohnson takes charge of Rhoda HOLLYWOOD - There seems to be a segment of the public that doesn't like Diana Lynn. There also seems to be a segment that does. Happily for the blonde actress, the latter is larger. Producers, sensing this, keep asking her to interrupt her thriving married life to return to work. Occasionally, she accepts. Last year she replaced Barbara Bel Geddes for six months on Broadway in "Mary, Mary" and since then has done a few TV roles. And now, in her first Western since "The Kentuckian," she guest-stars in "The Virginian" drama, "You Take the High Road" on channels 2, 3 and 74 in color Wednesday at 6:30 pm. She plays a Western girl caughl in a feud 1 between her brother and the man she loves. Crowded Life In addition to these offers thai she accepted, there is the long er list she declined -- in defer ence to her crowded life as the wife of Mortimer Hall, radio station owner, turned investmen broker; as the mother of thei four children, and as a doer She does charity work, especial ly fund-raising campaigns, an political work, especially cam-, ample, at Christmas. And she I paigning for candidates of her choice. Miss Lynn, then, still is wide- liked by the public and con- equently by the producers who im to attract that public. But vhat about those who don't like Diana doesn't exactly know the ize of this group, but she suspects its members have something in common besides their ittitude toward her. They all lay, or played, the piano. So did Miss Lynn. She was a child prodigy. It was her keyboard talent, in act, that paved her way into pictures at the age of ID. For icr first part, concerto she learned a in two weeks. She played her way to the top, but then she suddenly quit playing. "I trained to be a classical pianist, but more and more I was being asked to play music I didn't like -- over sentimentalized music. I rebelled. I like jazz, of course, but that wasn't my forte." also believes firmly in piano [·ctson* for youngsters including ier own. "I don't mean to sound highbrow," she says, "but I believe all children should be exposed to good music, from a cultural standpoint. Culture isn't something you cram down a child's throat. You don't take a youngster to a museum and say That's a Monet painting and don't you forget it.' " That piano-playing group of Diana Lynn detractors goes j back, she figures, to her prodigy period in pictures. "There must have been countless mothers," she says, "who told their children, 'if Diana Lynn can do it, you can (Jo it,' and back to the keyboard the kids went -- and right out of the Diana Lynn fan club."

A medical career had been lanned for McClory, who is uest-starring in "The Devil's our" episode of 20th Century- ox Television's "Daniel Boone," een Thursdays over NBC-TV, he nurse had other ideas. "Let's dress up and do a play" are the first words Sean remem- ers hearing from the "nanny" vho, as Barbara Kerrigan, had performed with some success in Dublin musk halls. From the age of six. Scan enacted various skits with her, which were a judicious mixture of Irish music hall sketches and religious plays. Life On Stage Through the years she fillet Sean with tales about the won ders of life on the stage. How ever, it seemed as though the parental medical wishes were destined to win out.. When Sean was 13, Miss Kerrigan departed from the McClory household to marry a seafaring man. Sean went on to medical school at Gahvay University and was in his third year there when he visited a public hospital ward as part of his studies. One of the patients on the verge of death was Barbara Kerrigan and he was at her bedside when she died. Apparently in death her influence prevailed. A few months aler Scan received BI\ offer rom (he famous Abbey Theatre n Dublin. He gave up his medical career for the wonders of the acting profession described by Barbara Kerrigan some years before. * * * Warner Anderson, starring as editor Matthew Swain In 20th Century-Fox Television's "Peyton Place" series, has a sense of humor that belies his dignified appearance. "I couldn't resist having some fun with the cast and crew, 1 ' confessed Anderson, so, I arranged for a 4-Star Special Edition of the Peyton Place Clarion announcing the entire upcoming season in our entertainment section. "I left a copy of the 4-Star Final in an obvious place on stage and watched until someone went for the bait. "The special edition carried an announcement story listing their programming for the '65'66 season and included all of 20th-Fox Television's series set for the second season as well as all the new series. "The one glaring omission was 'Peyton Place.' I printed the word "Open" in the Tuesday and Thursday 9:30 p.m. slot in which Peyton Place' has run so suc- essfully this past season. "My next special edition will carry a retraction to set the cast and crews minds at ease." The series, of course, will con- inue in its two-nights-a-week time slot on ABC-TV. .
