B> CYNTHIA LOWRY Af» Television-Had io Writer NEW YORK (AP) - Olcfc Cavett, * pleasant, clvll'man* nered young comedian, slipped unobtrusively onto the daytime television scene Monday with an ABC show called "This Morning," built carefully in a mold so popular that It Is almost a cliche. Cavett, like Johnny Carson, Joey Bishop, Mike Douglas, Merv Griffin and the others, Is host of an informal talk-come* dy-muslc show. The only differ, ence is that his 90 minutes starts In mldmornlng and ends at noon. .'11 Is really unfair to Judge anything of this category on the basis of the opening program or even of the opening Week, Cavett, a comedy writer turned performer, needs time to find and get accustomed to his new role of host, and his helpers must have some time to shake down too. The opening show, however, was notable for Its lack of excitement and even of a point of view, Cavett, who has a self- deprecating manner and understated sense of humor, essayed a few short jokes that didn't even arouse much enthusiasm from the studio audience. Then , he introduced the band-all in or- principal characters off on * to* lure scries of their own, As so often happens W sweh eatftt, tft« story was sidetracked by th* producers', interest in showing the potential of th« main characters. they were James Whitmore, playing a brilliant, gruff crlmi- notoglsl, ant) Ento Ceruslco, as his assistant, tony, tony was supposed to be an Italian street urchin he had adopted during (he war, and he exuded boyish charm and fractured English. the whole thing came off badly, the contrast between the professor and his assistant didn't work out sympathetically, and the murder story was inter* rupted by flash backs and excursions Into the professor's class room lectures.

"Get Initiative » earn your own money." But when we try something different, we get shot down. All we wanted to do was wash a big jet airliner. But no •- the union would let us. It was "Goback to car washes and candy sales, kids, and don't get wild ideas." You don't earn enough money to take 10 kids to an important conference unless you come ap with wild ideas. We could have chartered a bus with the money we earned washing a jet. Helen, how about asking your YAFI readers to write in about the most successful fund-raising projects at their school, and how they managed them? • • CLIPPED WINGS Dear C.W.; How about it, kids?

All my folks furnish is the use of their car to get to classes, and $5.00 a week for gas. My folks aren't hurling for money, but the way my Mother squirms at the thought of giving me $5.00 a week, you'd think they were dead broke. Is this too much to ask?

The In.itllutton of the Hollywood studio Is old-fashioned and outmoded. That's the opinion of<one of our better young directors. Leonard Horn. "The technical end of picture making takes entirety too much time,' Horn says. "Fifty minutes out of every hour on the set «re devoted to things like lighting, only 10 minutes to real creativity. "The problem Is thnt the studios and the techniques are terribly old-fashioned. We all' know thttt the CIA could bug this table, with the mike unnotlcenble, and listen clearly a mile nwny.
