TELEVISION IN REVIEW By RICK DU BROW| HOLLYWOOD (tJPI) — There was some rare and immediatei television excitement on "CBS Reports" Wednesday night when Sens. Hubert Humphrey and Strom Thurmond locked horns in a "live" debate on the civil rights bill. The first third or so of the hour broadcast was devoted to tracing the route of the bill in 'normal documentary form, and then the remainder of the time was given to the debate between South Carolina's Thurmond and Minnesota's Humph rey. CBS described Wednesday night's effort as a "live documentary," and that is precisely what it was in terms of immed iacy. Though there is an import' ant place in television for public affairs shows of a timeless, historical or feature nature, it is also true that a number of] documentaries these days seem to be dated or mere pictorial rehashes—and that was a prime reason for the special appeal of, Wednesday night's technique. Eric Sevareid was the moderator. The debate was held in the Senate conference room. And though Humphrey and Thurmond were polite to each other, there were several times that Sevareid, to keep things moving, had to step in like a referee trying to separate two boxers after the bell has sounded. It was a program in the pub lie interest, and a distinctively admirable use of the television medium. EXECUTIVE'S TRANSPORTATION - 1964 Orange Show President Eorl S.

Lynda Bird. 20, but too busy to celebrate WASHINGTON (UPI) — It's Lynda Bird Johnson's 20th birthday today, but it appears the President's eldest daughter will be too busy for any but the simplest of family celebrations.

How one man with an idea up in a business HIALEAH, Fla. - (NEA) It stands as a tribute to good old free enterprise that a man can still invent a better mousetrap and find success.

PRESTO PORTABLE HAIRDRMER 10.88 Another fine program was broadcast Wednesday night — a revival of NBC-TV's prize winning 90-minute original drama of 1958, "Little Moon of Alban," starring Julie Harris in the role of the nursing nun which she created in the first production. Alas, as with so many outstanding programs. Little Moon of Alban" and 'CBS Reports" began at the same time, with the viewer the loser. The NBC play was an entirely new production of the story of the young Irish girl whose father, brother and fiance are killed in fighting with the Eng- islh and who then, upon becoming a sister of charity, must care for a cynical British officer. Six years old the drama may be, but there has been no better - done play on the home screen this season. This viewer did not see the original show, but it is doubt-i ful that Miss Harris could have been any better than she was Wednesday night. As the officer who falls in love with Miss Harris and asks her to marry him rather than renew her vows. Dirk Bogarde was likewise outstanding. Miss Harris' finding of true faith and her true vocation in her caring for Bogarde — and toiletries company in Louisiana and Mississippi. On the basis of one idea, he left the firm to start hs own firm. He called it the Sunshme Soap Co. He discovered that the large manufacturers had overlooked the potenUal customized soap market. "It was a natural," said Walker. Instead of a big expensive hotel offering the same brand of soap their guests use every day — or find in smaller hotels and motels along the highway — he held out some thing altogether sew. "I just persuaded them they would be upgrading their estab lishraent," he explained. He didn't even talk money at first, just offered a bar of soap impressed with a name and em blem distinctive from other hotels, and a choice of color and scent. The old "better mousetrap' worked. Embracing all the Record jackpot attracts 'em EAST GRINSTEAD, England (UPI) — A local council booked a downstairs hall for its first public "Meet Your Council meeting Wednesday night. Only four citizens showed up. It turned out that the bingo hall upstairs was packed because a record jackpot prize of $196 was being offered. her rejecfion of his proposal — were completely convincing, and their tender parting was a high point of television drama in recent memory. The fact that Bogarde's miraculous recovery and sheer v,iU to live did not ring false — but, rather, shone honestly with his own new faith and love —- was a tribute to the art of writer James CosUgan.

WALKER AND SOAP: The big boys were In a lather. major hotels in the Greater Miami area. Walker's Sunshine supplies soap to 80 per cent of the total. He is now in hotels throughout the Caribbean and South America; he ships throughout the country. Walker's first two years were rough, he admits. "The first year it looked as if we'd never sell any soap," he said. "The big ones had been in busmess more than a century, so I had to do some selling to convince people I had a good bar of soap." Getting started had more than one obstacle. "At first our soap resembled others on the market," Walker explained. "Then a hospital nurse pomted out that one per cent more of a special cleansing chemical would qualify it as a surgical soap. 'She w a s right. Jlore than 300 doctors wrote me in answer to letters I sent out around Florida urging them to use it themselves and prescribe for their patients." That's not all. The soap is beginning to catch on with retail sales, too, now about five per cent of Walker's volume. "I didn't dream we could sell retail," he said, "because of the advertising power of the giants." With two production lines, the plant averages some 60,000 bars a day. The volume — doubled in the past two years — now stands at an annual fig­ ure'of 10,000,000 bars. Walker estimates sales in excess of $400,000 per year. Soap manufacture, a rare enough thing in the South, is unique in Florida's Gulf-stream tourist area. But the fact that he operates a unique business doesn't bother Walker. "That's just the way I like it," he said with the smUe of a man watching the world beating a bath to his door.
