B CE 12: 00 B Wide World 1:00 B ® 33 Tomorrow By Jiy Frederick! Judging from the volume of the explosion further up Virginia Street last week, I take it blood was drawn with the revelation last Sunday that WCHS didn't plan to carry "Phyllis" on Monday nights this fall but instead would show reruns of "Gunsmoke." I didn't hear WCHS station manager Curtis Butler doing his Pat Paulsen act but he sent me a copy of his fulminations so I could read them. That way I only had to put up with the misspellings along with the misrepresentations. Anyone conversant with the English language should have been able to understand that what I wrote Last week was-that WCHS had decided to carry "Gunsmoke" reruns instead of "Phyllis" and another new network show "Three For The Road." This information was given us, somewhat reluctantly, by one of Butler's minions. Later I happened to see a CBS network schedule that showed "Three For The Road" scheduled for Sunday night. "Phyllis" was sandwiched between "Rhoda" and "All In The Family" on Monday nights. A call Tuesday to WCHS revealed that it was "Rhoda", which was going to get bumped, along with "Phyllis," to make way for old Marshal Dillon repeats. "Rhoda," we were informed by the WCHS spokesman, would be carried on a delayed broadcast basis. When? Get ready for this. At the somewhat less than prime time of 6:30 p.m. Saturdays. Present plans don't call for "Phyllis" to be carried on WCHS at all. Butler didn't mention the bumping of "Rhoda" or the dropping of "Phyllis" at all in his oration. He did say, proudly, that WCHS planned to carry the CBS Thursday night movie at its network time this fall - a move he somehow neglected to point out that I have been urging on WCHS ever since the station dropped the network film in or- 8:00 B CB (SB © 95 Ben Vereen B CE Waltohs (B Almost Anything Goes 8 d) Best of Pops 9:00 B (B 99 93 93) "Who Is Black Dahlia?" \ B (E Movie CB Streets of San Francisco (D "Bonnie and Clyde" 8 Festival CD H'wood Theater 10:00 8 Woman CD College Sports 10:30 8 Scene One.

Butler speaks of the "Guns- moke" deal as being "the largest single program purchase ever made by this station." I think some of the money might have been better spent to hire some professional cameramen to take WCHS's news film. Butler accuses me of not being a television expert - a title I have never claimed. As a matter of fact, I don't think there are any television experts otherwise there wouldn't be so many program cancellations after the first 13 weeks. However, just as you don't need a graduate degree in icthyology to know a fish is overripe, you don't need to be a television expert to tell that some of WCHS's programming practices smell. Butler also made much of the fact that the name "Jay Fredericks," which appears at the top of this column, isn't the true name of the author. This is so and isn't anything anyone has tried to hide. Whenever anyone asks if "Jay Fredericks" and James F. Dent aren't one and the same, I cheerfully admit the fact. The pseudonym is used because way back there when the Sunday edition of The Charleston Gazette and the Sunday edition of The Charleston Daily Mail were combined into the Sunday Gazette- Mail, management decided there were too many standing Gazette bylines appearing in what was supposed to be a combined publication. So I took the initial letter of my first name and my entire second name (adding an'S') arid hey, presto! there was Jay Fredericks. No one ever was sworn to secrecy. By the way, what did Butler say his weatherman's name was? Television Movies Thursday "ALL THE KING'S MEN," (1950)·***·; 7 p.m., (D with Broderick Crawford and Mercedes Me- nema. Cambridge.
