Comics Have Problem Of Gathering New Material By CYNTHIA LOWRY AJP TV Ksdio Writer NEW YORK (AP)—Shelly Berman, one of the bright young comedians who has only been a TV star for a couple of seasons, announced recently that he has retired his most famous piece of material, the monologue about commercial airline travel. "It's had its day, it's served its purpose," explained, illustrating graphically a problem facing funnymen whose careers are made or broken in their television aonearances. In pre-TV days, a comedian like Berman ccftld use one tried and true routine throughout his entire career. Today it becomes shopworn and over-familiar in a matter of months, so large is the television audience. The insatiable demands of television for new, fresh material particularly afflicts the stand-up comedians, the comedy monologists. The result is a dwindling supply of laughmakers willing to blow their best pieces in one TV guest shot, even on a top-rated variety show. Even the established comedians today are busily figuring out survival techniques, and some of :hese are taking them far away jom comedy. TV viewers may have noted a recent epidemic of comedians playing straight dramatic roles in Iramas and suspense stories. Steve Allen had the roles of a jsychiatrist and then a professor n one series. Mort Sahl and Buddy rlackett played frightened first bananas pursued by killers in, respectively, episodes of "Thriller" and "Dan Raven." Jack Carson turns up on our home screens more often as a villain or blowhard than as a laughmaker. Boyish Johnny Carson has had a couple of successful outings in light comedy. Probably the happiest refuge of the moonlighting comics,, however, is a fat, starring role in a situation comedy series. Danny Thomas is now in his eighth year playing "Daddy" and is so established in the role of family man that a lot of us have forgotten that he started out as a night club performer. Andy Griffith is a recent and successful member of this elite group. George Gobel now wants into the situation comedy club. The pint-sized comedian, lacking a regular network show of his own this season, has been keeping busy—too busy he feels—playing night clubs, one-night stands and making occasional TV guest appearances. He has now concluded that the life of a wandering; minstrel in the jet age, while not without its financial rewards, is for the birds. "I've been playing dates on such a tight schedule that I didn't get home once in three solid months," he complained. "You spend most of your time on buses and! planes —or worse, hanging around airports waiting for planes. Half the time you arrive just in time for your date, short of sleep and dead | tired. "But it's not all bad. At least playing the clubs and the fairs gives you a chance to fool around with your material, testing it before a live audience, moving the lines around for better results. You just can't do that on television." Still another popular escape hatch for the comedian is the panel show, either as hoct or game-player. Outstanding practitioners in their field include Garry Moore. Ernie Kovacs and 1 —most recently—Jackie Gleason. All of the disturbed comedians have ben piayfaf «fe* ftttetttai to the recent a«tMttet of Bob Newhart. last seaaon'i mo* important discovery. Newhtri ma been performing on a pay-TV experiment now in pttifruB to Canada. Gardner McKay TV Show Works To Keep Ratings By BOB THOMAS AP Movie-TV Writer HOLLYWOOD (AP)—In television, he can laugh last who gets good ratings. And so Gardner McKay is entitled to a healthy chuckle. No laughing boy is McKay, the lean, lanky star of "Adventures in Paradise." He's intent and serious, and these qualities may have helped save the ABC hour from sinking fti the TV typhoon. Talking to McKay is somewhat of an adventure in itself. You may have to trail him from stage to stage because 20th-Fox TV schedules wait for no man. You may also wonder at times whether he is talking to you, himself or his omnipresent shaggy dog, since he is given to asides and comments. I stuck it out and learned some things about his conquest of oblivion. "The show is going great now," he observed. "I heard we made it to the top 10 in ratings. That's good. But it still takes work, work, work to keep up the quality. I feel we're dipping into a little valley now. Gotta stop it." "I've had rough times," he con- tinued. "I was really led to the slaughter at the first of these series, knocked down. I wa» A real target." Ke added: The criticiHB hurt. It must have, though I cBdn't realize it at the tim*. I had a breakdown, partly from overwork —I had worked from May until December without a day off— partly from the pressure. I threw an armchair at the camera. "Everybody got scared. I asked for a few days off and they gave it to me. I went up to Carmel and ;ot a room with a fireplace. Those few dfys meant a lot to me. When I came back, I was ready to work." McKay said he would like to do 100 shows and then quit What then? I don't know if any series star can make it in features. We're seen to death. But my brother and I have a book we want to film, about sailing around the Horn. We might do it iome day." As a mark of respect, a Bedouin boy of Arabia won't eat in the presence of his father.

PORT EARNINGS WILL RETIRE BONDS ISSUED FOR IMPROVEMENT AND EXPANSION PROGRAM By the end of this year, the $12.5 million building program of the Harris County-Houston Ship Channel Navigation District will be completed. This program is supported by revenue bonds to be retired out of port earnings. High on the list in the Port's building program is the $4 million bulk materials handling facility on Green's Bayou, just off the Ship Channel. Ships should be loading bulk materials at its 650-foot wharf within the next 90 days. This new facility is expected to attract to the nation's second ranking port much additional cargo. Work on Public Wharves 21 and 22 is well advanced. Each wharf is 600 feet long, and each will offer a transit shed. At Texas and Crawford and adjacent to the Navigation District's downtown office building, the $3 million Houston World Trade Center is being built. It is due for occupancy by year's end, and the demand for space is brisk. Just across from the grain elevator, old Wharf 1 is undergoing a half-million dollar face-lifting. Items in the expansion and improvement program already completed are: An additional truck dumper for the Port of Houston's public grain elevator, which in 1959 handled more ex- port wheat than any other in the country, has been installed at a cost of $500,000. Next to the elevator, $350,000 worth of new metal sheds have been completed to house all the repair and maintenance shops. A $350,000 shipside Warehouse was opened December 15, providing 50,000 square feet of covered storage space within easy reach of ships' berths. The warehouse is located just behind new Wharf 21. When renovaton of Wharf 1 is completed, and Public Wharves 21 and 22 are in operation, the Port of Houston will have berthing space for 25 general cargo vessels.
