Stores Charged for Norcof/cs Violations LITTLE ROCK (AP) - Two Little Rock drug store operators who allegedly violated the state narcotic and pharmacy laws have been ordered, by the state Board of Pharmacy to apply more rigid controls o.n the sale of a narcotic cough syrup. The board announced its de» cision Thursday but withheld any penalties. The board said Don Barrett and Edward Carter had indiscriminantly sold a By ELIZABETH Associated Press WHtef HEW YORK (AP) - Mention "the Graduate" and »oun& girts melt over EtosUn Hoffman, young men sigh over Katharine Ross and movie buffs cheer director Mike Nichols, Bui one key person has been overlooked*'Charles Wefeb, who wrote the book that became the movie* Who is he, what ttts he been doing and has any of the glory rubbed off? "Well," he said, "some TV people cam««out and shol me while t was* working in the department store/* A department store? "I worked in the stock room, open* ing up crates of cosmetics, Then I'd put them on a cart and wheel it up to the floor, And I'd empty wastebaskets. I suppose seeing how a stockroom works is of value to a writer." /. Webb originally sold the book" to Embassy Pictures for $20,000, but with a wife and "wo young sons the nv ney didn't last forever. "After the movie came out," he said, "I talked to Mike Nichols and told him I liked it. He mentioned there might be the possibility of a 'gift.' "Sure enough. "Joe Levlne, the producer, sent me $5,000. When It arrived, I quit the stockroom " "The Graduate" was Webb's first (and so tor only) novel published, When he was class of '61 at Williams College, he was awarded a fellowship providing $3,000 a year for three years. During that time he holed up in a room in Cambridge, Mass., and wrote his book. People talk about the main character's alienation from his parents and society. But accord- Ing to Webb, "The whole thing is not a conscious essay on social climate. It was more an attempt to portray an individual character. Th* 'you catt't trust anybody over 30' thing happened after publication. I think \ the unalterable division of ages \ is a myth," $ | One of the most controversial J» bits in the film comes at the end when Benjamin, the graduate/ rescues his lady-love from her ... church wedding-of-convenlence. To do this, he wields a tall cross to beat back her angry parents. Som? felt this was an attack on the church. , Dustin Hoffma The Graduate, feels otherwise?" "I don't understand the^big deal. I don't think the cross is so symbolic, Benjie doesn't hurl anyone; he Just picks up the nearest thing to defend himself. It's not an attack against Christianity and marriage." 4 Webb said that as he wrote it, "I remember wondering if no one before had thought of using the cross as a weapon; it's an ideal shape. In a church, it seemed the obvious thing to pick up. People should be provoked; it's healthy and if something is good, itprovokes." "Though the m«>vie and the book are similar In feeling," commented Webb, "1 feel it's hard to compare them. The mediums are sodifferent," "There's a problem now with literature. Films have slowly been taking over. As a novelist I see It as something to fight. The trouble is there aren't enough books around to compete with good movies, It's always been hard to write fiction. New ways of writing fiction have to evolve so that it can cotnpate and command the attention of the public more than it does. It's not that movies have gotten better; it's that writers have abandoned the fundamentals of good writing- telling a story as well as possible." What of Webb, the graduate? "I've been working on a novel. It is in rough draft form now and is call«l 'The Last Usher.' It starts with a person asked to usher at the wedding of someone he doesn't know, Hfi agrees to do it and is introduced to the members of the wadding. When the bride meets him, she calls the nViTiage off and asks if she can move in with him " Isn't that where "The Graduate" ended?

Bob Thomas at the Movies By BOB THOMAS \, AP Movie-Television Writer HOLLYWOOD (AP) - Ken Berry always wanted to bo a song-and<lance man. Trouble is, song-and-dance men are In little demand nowadays, so he'll h;t'/.• 'o bo content with bolng star of a television series. Berry is the central figure In a bold move to retain one of CBS' major assets, thft "Andy Griffith Show," This season will be Andy's last; he has wearied of the grind and wants to spread his wings In feature films. His decision was naturally a blow to the network, since the series has for seven years helped maintain CBS' dominance of Monday night, The production minds cairio up with a solution; Why not con- tlnue the series in the same setting, but with a new star? The result was "Mayberry, R.F.D,", which will occupy the Griffith time slot starting next fall, "How did I get the job?" asks the handsome, personable Ber» ry, "I'm not quite .sure, If they think they're g«t^A 0r a-v>:h:r Andy Griffith, they're going to be disappointed, I'm not any* thing like Andy, I won't even have a Southern accent, But then, several of the characters \n the series d^n't have accents, and no one seems to notice," Berry will be introduced later this season as a local firmer. He will also be electedpresident o| the City Council so he •*!!! hive contact with thy going>^n In May berry. The setting will te the sirne, but must of tht characters will be changed, Remaining will be George Lindsay a» Goober Pyle. "I understand that Andy *11i bfe back on the show four tif:;e- next season," said Berry, |4 So it will seem as though he Is still holding down the same job. The audience Just won't see what he's doing every week." The new star will be Introduced in a "spin-off" segment which will comprise the last Griffith show of the season and will also appear at the onJ of the summer reruns, "That #MI help pave tho way for the new series," said Berry, adding sheepishly: "The only trouble Is that the characters In the spin-off won't be In the show. Originally It was planned tor mo to bring to Mayborry a family of Italian farmers I had met while In the service. Now that w«'ve done th*« sho*, ! understand the family won't be used after all, just one Italian." Berry Is a Mollne, 111., boy whose early Idols wore Fred Astalre, Gene Kelly, Donald O'Connor and other song-and- dance men, That was where his ambition lay, and he got started in a traditional manner; by being discovered by Horace Heldt in a talent show.

CAP1 - The suj^rintendent of the State Hospital Informed the State Hos. pital Board Thursday that he had failed to discover any short. age of drugs from the Hospital pharmacy or any evidence that such action was taki/ig place. Rep, Leon Hoisted of North Little Rock charged recently that drugs had been taken from the Hospital pharmacy in recent years. Hoisted did not attend Thursday's meeting because of the special legislative session. The tuard said it would hold a special meeting next Thursday morning a/irj invited Holst&d to be present.
