Golesburg Reflister-MoU, Golesburg, III, Saturday, A6f\\ 2],J9f^ J Dick Clark Rides TV Disc Jockey Format to Uncounted Riches By VBimoN soorr HOLLYWOOD (UPl) - the weirdest sueceis etofy on television, bar none, is the saga of "American Bandstand" which, with "Lucy" and "Gun- Bntertalament World smolie," is the longest-running show on the tube. Under the guidance of Dick aark, who hasn't missed a ahow since ISM, "American Bandstand" has moved from Philadelphia to Holljriraiod and switched from a daily series to a Weekly. Albeit a daytime show, the musical for teeti'agers will celebrate its 20th (really its 21$t) year on the air June 19 on ABC's prime time and again in its regular time slot June 23. Clark has ridden the record* playing, visual disc jockey format to uncounted riches. In his Sunset Boulevard offices Clark is somewhat inore paunchy than he wat in the early Philadelphia days. But the boyish face is startllngly youthful for a man in his mid* forties. He drummed his fingers on a table and said, "When t started with the show we were on WPIL in Philadelphia and I was trying to get a network interested in what we were doing. "The reaction was classic: 'Who the hell wants to watch kids dancing to rock and roll records from Philadelphia?'" the answer, as It turned out, is millions of viewers. "We moved to Hollywood in lMl4 because there wasn't enough show business activity in Philadelphia," Clark said. "Some weeks we pulled 15,600 letters. Our greatest daim to fame was giving musical talent a chance to debut on television. I can't begin to count the famous stars we introduced. . "to name a few: Jonl James, Prankie Avalon, Fabian, Chub* by Checker, Bobby Darin, Dione Warwick, the Jefferson Airplane, Neil Diamond, tssac Hayes and Olen Campbell. "It's still our policy to give new talent an opportunity. But the element of the show that surprises us most is the ratings and the demographics of our viewing audience. "In a 1972 survey we discovered we had more than twice as many viewers as in 1957. Surprisingly we still found most of our viewers were over 18 years old. "We aim primarily for liids, but we're delighted so many adults are watching." Youngster and their fads have resulted in Clarli's myriad enterprises.

Country Muilc by the Rhythm Ramblers Sot., April 21 Danchig 8 :30 P.M.-12:30 A.M. Lynn Carlin is the exception to that not-too*important rule. It was J6hn Cassavetes who found her working as a secre* tary 10 years ago when he was about to ihake "Faces." She did so well in that picture that she was nomhiated for an Academy Award. A decade later Lynn is still woricing. It's been a decade tii change, however. She and her husband, Ed Carlin, were di* vorced. She's learned ' her craft. And she's slimmed way down, in both face and figure, and is now threatening to become a glamor gal. STILL, PRODUCERS in both television and movies are. blind to that change and she's type-cast in town as a mother. This is her role in the beautiful sleeper called "Baxter!" and a horror number, "Night Walker." "Just once," she says, "I'd like to, put on false eyelashes, rouge and mascara and be a femme fatale." "Night Walker" was shoi in Florida and she was dolled up in a gray wig and mostly in a ratty bathrobe. For five weeks the company saw her like that every day. Then she had a day off and appeared in tight white pants and her natural blonde hair — and nobody recognized her. She doesn't work too often. She's raising two kids — seven and five — and she says she only takes a part when her bankroll is low. At the moment, she says, she still has some money so she isn't looking for work. HER CHILDREN wonder whether or nolt she likes acting. First, therl is that business of not being all out to act all the time. And, second, | acting looks, to them, like a painful pbfession. . "I'm always hurt when I'm ' working," she says. There is a scene in "Bax- i terl" In which she's slapped by Patricia Neal. the direc- 1 tor wanted her to use a double for the scene but Lynn said • no, she could take it. "PAT SAID she'd try to go easy." Lynn said, "but she warned me that since her stroke she hasn't had complete control over her arm. We did the scene five or six times and she kept missing my cheek and socking me in the car. Every night I had to soak my poor ear." In "Night Walker," she was Sesquicentennud Two-Day Steam Trip Will Mark Railroad Anniversary By PHILIP H. DIXON ALBANY.'N.Y.

Ttie special train, to commemorate the 150th anniver sary of the D&H, will mark the first time since 1953 that the company has run a steam- powiered train. Large Locomotive Hauled by a powerful 4-8-4 type power unit, one of the largest operable steam locomotives in the world, the 22-car D&H passenger train will pull out of the line's Colonic Yards in suburban Watervliet April 28 for a two-day 480-mile trip to Montreal and bacic. The nearly 1,000 ticlcets for the sesquicentennial trip were sold out montha ago. The route will take the train through Saratoga Springs and along the scenic rock cliffs above the west shore of Lake Champlain, past Plattsburgh and across the border at Rouses Point to Montreal. \ Although the D&H is a small railroad compared to such giant transportation systems as the Union Pacific and Penn Central, its history goes back farther than either line. The D&H, born April 23, 1823, is the oldest continuously operated transportation company in the nation, with roots that go back to the birth of railroads in the Western Hemisphere. First Model Its first steam locomotive, the Stourbridge Lion, was an ungainly piece of machinery resembling a stout black barrel on wheels. A full-size replica of the Lion, as well as other memorabilia detailing the company's growth, will be carried by a second special commemorative train. The train, hauled by two powerful Alco diesel engines, will travel from April 23 to May 12 .along the D&H right of way, from Montreal and Rutland, Vt., in the north to Binghamton, N.Y., and Willces-Barre, Pa., in! the south. It will make 14 stops along the route, and the public will be allowed aboard for an inspection. The D&H was formed to bring hard, bright-burning anthracite coal from the hills of northeastern Pennsylvania to New York City for domestic and industrial use. Bailt Canal . Organized as the Delaware and Hudson Canal Co., the firm built a four-fobt deep canal from the hills near Honesdale, Pa., to Rpndout, N.Y. Coal from the mines in the Mooiic Mountains was lowered by a "gravity railroad"—a series of tracks on inclined planes—to the canal at Honesdale. At the canal, the coal was loaded pn mule-powered wooden boats for the 108-mile trip through more than 100 locks to Rondout, and, from that Ulster County community, the coal was shipped down the Hudson River to New York City. After the Civil War, the D&H began a gradual transformation, as its coal-carrying canal system became increanngly I impractical, and it acquired, through leases and mergers, extensive tracks through New York up to Vermont and Montreal. the canal was closed down in 1899, and by the late 1920's, demand for coal was declining. The D&H became "The Bridge Line to New England and Canada," purchasing high-powered steam locomotives to speed cargoes from one end of its right-of-way to the other. Retirement After World War II, the steam engine went the way of the canal boat, and the D&H's passenger service recently followed both into retirement with the advent of Amtralc. With economies and modernization, however, the company has continued to concentrate on the transportation of freight, It is the only major trunii line in the Northeast to avoid bankruptcy in recent years.

"My kids can't understand," she siys, "how I can possibly like acting when I'lii always getting hurt." But she does like it. At first, she Just followed her orders from her directors. Gradually, however, she's come to feel more sure of herself as an actress as the experience piles up. She still prefers a strong director. "Now there's talk of a comedy series on TV," she says "and that scares me. I'm not sure I can handle comedy. Still, I've been giving some thought to what color Rolls I'll order." LYNN IS ONE of those actresses with small children who worry about the lack of family pictures around. With her, the problem is compounded because her ex-husband, Ed Carlin, is makuig non- family flicks.

Most of the hour is devoted to pan shots of young teen-agers (12-16) moving trancelilie through the gyrations of their tribal rhythms. Clark interviews a guest and generally behaves like a benevolent chaperon while the kids do their thing.
