Nunn, Jr. Bob Thomas at the Movies By BOB THOMAS AP Movie-Television Writer HOLLYWOOD (AP) - "Yes, it's lovely on the desert today," said Bea Benadaret, speaking on the telephone from Palm Springs. "But then, everyday is beautiful to me." Bea on long-running "Petticoat Junction" spoke with understandable feeling. She said doctors have told her that a tumor on her lung has been dissolved by radiation treatment. The actress did not make any predictions for the future. "But I do know that I feel fine, better than I have felt in years," she said. "They tell me the spot on my lung has disappeared, and I believe them." Long one of the busiest performers of radio and television, Miss Benadaret had lived with the threat of cancer for five years. During a routine checkup, a spot was discovered on her lung, then It disappeared. Her doctors remained vigilant, and she was X-rayed at least every three months. Meanwhile she cut down her usual quota of three-to-four packs of cigarettes a day.

Meanwhile she was in the midst of shooting the fifth season of "Petticoat Junction." She told none of the company of her ailment and resisted urgings by her doctor for immediate surgery; she was concerned that her absence would imperil the show. Finally her family prevailed upon her to undergo the operation. It took place Nov. 26. Afterward, she related, the lung surgeon told her, "I found the tumor, but I have to tell you I could do nothing about it." "Why?" she asked. "Because if I did, you would be an Invalid for the rest of your life." Treatment was recommended at Stanford University Hospital, where she was subjected to a linear accelerator, a super-voltage method of radiation. "They warned me that there could be side effects as a result of the treatment," she said, "But that I might avoid them. Somehow I did. Ob, I was debilitated, of course, but I was never prone. I was able to walk during the entire six and a half weeks of treatments, five days a week. "I went up there convinced that the treatments would work, Maybe I was stupid, or maybe I had simply developed a faith In the fantastic outpouring of prayer and expressions of hope that I received from so many people, The mail was stacked so high you wouldn't believe it.
