It is a time to practice wi it- ing I9fi1, instead of 19fjO. on letters and checks. It is a period m which to try to slay with a <cw resolutions lor soli-betterment. It would be nice if !he lele- vlsion industry had such a time, a certain day on which it could sweep its decks of an old -iccu- mulalion and face the future fc>el- strange one, and this isn't TVs new year. For instance, television recognizes—indeed is almost a slave to—seconds, minutes and hour.-,. It breaks a day, however, into strange segments: there is day time tor women, local time =md prime lime, the last a period which usually starts at 7:30 p. m. and continues until 10:30 or 11. It has a special period late Sunl day afternoon reserved for whai it believes is an "egghead audience." The TV calendar ignores months I but pays close attention to 13- week periods, called "cycles," four of which make up a year. II there is such a thing as a TV new year, it comes after mid- September and, continues into Oc- Thumbnail Sketches: I DOTH 1 GOODEST I CftN.PftW IF V6 CRflUE FflNCV \JITTLES GITVORESELF JOB WORKIN' FERWA6ES FETCH ME THEM GOOD OU GRITS'.!

Therefore, at this point in our human new year, it is not difficult to predict what is immediately ahead for television view- Armed wi'th my trusty copy uf the network schedules, I can fearlessly predict that for'the next nine months—that brings us <jp to next September—our televi.ii->n fare will consist largely of Westerns, most of which are carbons or slight switches of such tried and true successes as "Gun- smoke," "Wagon Train," ind "Have Gun Will Travel"; of adventure stories, including private- eye dramas, most of whicl- ue traceable m inspiration to "Peter Gunn," "77 Sunset Strip" and "Perry Mason"; of situation comedies using "I Love Lucy" and "Father Knows Best" as prototypes. There will be a steady stream of public information shows, most. of them pretty well done, but their subject matter only as slim-1 India's Sikhs practice a faitii combining both Hindu and Moslem beliefs.
