Logansport, Indiana, Pharos-Tribune Actor Seems to Dislike Madison Ave. Ad Boys HOIAYWOOD (UP)—Television is getting tough with movie stars who scoff at the JIBW medium, as evidenced this week when Richard Egan was threatened with boycott for attacking TV ad agencies. the sack Mr. Dior's final gesture to the world? I always heard of him as being a kindly man. . . I don't understand how he could be so cruel." Because Egan criticized the!

Actor, Not Pitchman "I'm an actor, not a soap pitchman, and I'll be darned if I'll let them push mo around so they can jump into the middle of a scene and sell products that half the public doesn't want or need to begin with." A ruggedly handsome guy with an independent attitude, Egan admits' his outspoken criticism of the men who run television may hurt his career. "I'm not afraid of them," he grinned. "They may kick movies around, but they'll never knock us out of the box. v "Big studios like M-G-M are reduced to making commercials for TV—the industry that has almost put pictures out of business. Hollywood's attitude seems to be, 'let's not offend our enemy'. "Look at what TV's done to people like Jackie Gleason and Sid Caesar. They didn't lose their ability. The smart boys on Madison Avenue said they weren't selling product. So off they went. The intrepid Egan added that TV producers and directors are scared to death of the ad boys. "The big star of every TV show Is the commercial. ,'3ut they never warn you in advance, or advertise it that way. Commercials are filmed at costs as high as $50,000 for 20 seconds of air time." Egan isn't on a sour grapes kick. He's turned down hundreds of video offers, accepting only four. Currently he's being touted for an Academy Award Oscar for his role in "Slaughter on 10th Avenue." "How can you do a dramatic story in 22 minutss?" he asks. "It takes longer than thac to read eh Sunday funnies. "TV builds up a story to an emotional climax, and then when the actor is ready to give his best effort they cut to the sales pitch. "These gray flannel suit characters aren't artists, they're businessmen. And if anything ruins television you can bet that they •will be responsible."

Your Christmas Store i^* Hayes Helen Can Discuss Any Subject NEW YORK (UP) —Helen Hayes, an expert at delivering lines before an' audience, produces some lively ones backstage too. This I discovered '.,\ an interview in her dressing room at the Morosco Theater, where the woman many consider the first lady of the theater is appearing in a new play, "Time Remembered." The play opened to rave notices for the actress, who at 57 is rounding cut 52 years in the theater.
