CHANNEL CHUCKLES "If you'll all stand we'll open the meeting with the playing of our song." Movies VCLFLety TV THE VANCOUVER SUN: WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 17, 1958 35 Three Top Shows Overlap Sunday Sullivan, Allen, Maverick Become an 'Either-Or' Choice By JIM GILMORE Vancouver Sun Television Editor If you have two TV's, two heads and two pair of eyes, you can see a vast chunk of TV's top-line talent this Sunday. All that is required is simultaneous viewing of the Ed Sullivan and Steve Allen programs. Thanks to the hardheadedness of the CBS and NBC brass, both programs will feature the respective networks' top attractions for the coming season. They do viewers no service by clashing the two showcases. However, there is a choice. Viewers can watch Maverick on ABC's Channel 5. The popular western, which six gunned both Sullivan and Allen in its initial season, starts its second time around this Sunday. But, getting back to the two-all-star efforts. Both will originate from New York and Hollywood,- and both have guest lists that read like TV's who's who. Sullivan will host such men-tionables as Robert Young, Jackie Gleason and Art Carney (both on film), James Arness, Edward R. Murrow, Arthur Godfrey (on tape), Garry Moore, Danny Thomas, Dorothy Collins, Red Skelton, Spring Byington, Verna Felton, Raymond Burr, Richard Boone, Ronald Reagan, Warner Anderson and Phil Silvers. Topping this rilly, rilly big shew will be Canada's Wayne and Sinister with, as CBS says, "an entirely new comedy sketch." This will indeed be something new, because not one of the sketches they have done with Sullivan were new to Canadian viewers. Countering on Channel 4, Allen will host such NBC stars as Dinah Shore, Eddie Fisher, Ward Bond, Tennessee Ernie Ford, George Burns, Bob Hope, Ed Wynn, Bob Cummings and Ralph Edwards. RABBIT EARS CBUT will probably exercise its option on the second 26-program series of All-Star Golf, which includes Toronto's Al Balding. The series Is currently being filmed at Sea Island, Ga., and Sarasota, Fla. . . . There will be no live coverage of the Mann Cup lacrosse final, because all games are at night, when CBUT has commercial commitments . . . Distinguished British director-star Noel Willman has been contracted by producer David Susskind to play the title role in Show of the Month's "Count of Monte Cristo,'" Oct. 28 on Channels 7 and 12 . . . The latter channel has also secured the new Ann Sothern show, which debuts Monday. Oct. 6. . . . The Bellingham station starts an interesting experiment Sept. 29 with ' In-Sehool Viewing," in conjunction with the curriculum of Bellingham schools. To be siiown weekdays at 9:30, the programs were prepared by Seattle primary grade teachers for KCTS, Seattle's educational TV station at the U. of Washington. The programs bear such titles as "Our Neighbors, the Japanese," "Earth's Surface," "Northwest Indians," "Human Machine," "Exploring the School Library." "World, Weather and You," "Space, Our New Frontier," and "Listen and Say," and have been offered to Lower Mainland school boards . . . jTV Executive in Plea for Honesty PITTSBURGH (UPI) Louis G. Cowan, president of the CBS television network, said it "should be made abundantly clear that no program should be on the air quiz or otherwise that does not meet the standards of honesty and fairness." "There have been many accusations made about quiz programs, and it is an index of the important role of television in our society that these accusations and stories nave found their place on the front pages of our newspapers," Mr. Cowan told the Pittsburgh Advertising Club. The CBS executive said that quiz shows usually are not property of a network and that since they represent large property values to other people, "we are obliged to act in utter fairness." "When however, in our opinion, there is sufficient evidence supporting such accusations, we have taken, and will continue to take action to remove such programs from the air promptly," he said.

The bidding clearly indicated that East would hold six hearts and the ace and king of diamonds. If he also held three or more clubs Henry saw no way to make his contract, but if he held two clubs or less an elimination plav would work. All Henry did was to win I the first trick, draw trumps with two leads, cash his ace and king of clubs and throw I East in with a heart. East was ; tmw able to take two heart ; Iricks and the king of diamonds, but that was as far as he could go. A heart lead would allow Henry to ruff in one hand and ! discard from the other, while another diamond lead would I set up dummy's queen for a club discard.
