8 - Friday, Apr. 17. kedlands Daily Facts SWEETIE PIE By Nadine Seltzer TJi urns. 'IL OH. ¥-/7 dog's harmress! It's the KID we'r» worried about!" TELEVISION IN REVIEW By BICK DU BBOW HOLLWOOD (UPI) - AVil- liam Shakespeare, whose 400th birthday will be celebrated aext Thursday, populated his plays with a number of fellows who had a working knowledge of tippling and wenchmg. Imagine his plight if he were alive today and trying to write for television, which has had a bad time with such earthy matters as cigarettes and whiskey and wild, wild women. There was a time, not long ago, when American film heroes frequently were robustly humorous, hard-drinking, hard-smok ing, hard-chasing gents who were considered romantic. Though there is little romance in the new cn^ of movie heroes, earthiness still abounds, and certainly more explicitly. Do audiences like it? Look at the enormous success of "Tom Jones." Television, however, is boxed in, and surely projects the most unromantic tone of any entertainment medium ever employed. ^Vhen it does indulge in meaty subjects, the treatment is clinical rather than robust or stylish. It is juiceless. Cumulatively, it is a hardening medium beyond compare. This, of course, is mainly because of the unimaginative approach to the business, and not because of such sensitive matters as cigarettes, whiskey or sex—but the natural restriction on these three things on a fam ily medium is instructive as merely indicating the requirements of over-all pussyfooting. A while back, a congressional group got some headlmes by uncovering an alleged net\vork emphasis on sexiness in shows. Last month, something of a furor swept the broadcasting business when a major and excellent New York radio station announced it would accept advertising for hard liquors for airing after 10:30 p.m. The fU' ror is not yet resolved. And, of course, the entire nation is aware of the turmoil that the surgeon general's report on smoking and health has created in television advertising. The stage deals openly in this coimtry with subject material of the most extreme nature. The movie industry, though it has a code, has more and more extended its bounds so that it is now virtually meaningless. Television, meanwhile, feels codes and restrictions here, there and everywhere. Admittedly, it is hard to be romantic when you are thinking of the fine print. The Channel Swim: Louis Jourdan hosts ABC-TV's "Hollywood Palace" May 2 ... His scheduled guests include Anna Slaria Aiberghetti, John Bubbles and the noted French singer and songwriter Charles Az- navous . . . Aznavous also turns up on the Steve Allen show April 29 . . . Actor Eddie Albert, who is also a nightclub performer, appears on "Hollywood Palace" April 25. "The Fantasticks," a long- running off-Broadway musical that has had many road companies tour this country and others, will be brought to NBC- TV, in the 1964-65 season by the Hallmark firm as a one-hour two-act cobr special ... It tells the whimsical tale of lovesick boy and the girl next door who are separated by an imaginary wall set up by their fathers. rN HOLLYWOOD Inger Stevens will get her man By Ersldne JobnMn HOLLYWOOD — Inger Stev ens came in out of the spring rain wearing a gossamer wrap around and a floppy black hat that revealed only one eye. With her always-sultiy look, she could have been mistaken for a sexy counterspy out of a James Bond thriller instead of television's "T h e Farmer's Daughter." The rain, as it can in California, turned into a storm, washing away several HoUywood homes and assorted hillsides. As Inger brushed a raindrop from her perky nose and wiggjed out of the slick sUcker, the weather seemed appropriate. Miss Stevens, the Swedish pas try, has much in common with storms. She raised one as a mo%ie actress, and now she's doing the same as Katie, the farm girl who went to Washington in switch which has become TV's first all-out, night-time soap opera. wm Katie marry her con gressman boss? Will they live happily ever after? Over a cup of tea, luscious In ger hinted a "Yes" to the first question and then added, with a chuckle, that maybe the wed ding bells should ring before the FCC starts lifting its eyebrows. "Things," she said, "are getting a little sticky around t h Cj house." In explanation, Inger pointed out that she has been living in the same house with "Congressman" Sloriey since the show started early last fall, that their romance is gaining momentum, and tbatin a forthconung show they plot to be alone when his mother leaves on an out-of-town trip. She sends his children to a Unruh's school bill makes gains SACRAMENTO (UPI) — As sembly Speaker Jesse M. Un ruh's plan for radical revisions in the public school system was looking more like a winner today as the legislative finish in line drew near. The legislators, hoping for ad joumment early next month, departed Thursday for one of theur regular three - day weekends. But before leaving, they took two separate actions that assured Unroh of either outright victory or a loud voice in compromise negotiations over public school finance. Essentialy, Unruh's bill (AB- 145) would abolish through imi- fication all but about 350 of Caifomia's nearly 1,600 local school districts, would achieve a measure of local property tax equalization, and would add about $105 milion in state aid to the schools over the next two years. The first action occurred when Unruh won approval for his measure from the Assembly Committee on Ways and Means. This left little doubt that he could move it across the Assembly floor and into the Senate. The second action occurred when the Senate Finance Committee refused to pass Gov. Ed mund G. Brown's school finance reform measure, carried by Sen. Albert Bodda, D-Sacramento. Brown had hoped to achieve property tax equalization, not through the abolition of districts and their different tax rates, as Unruh would do, but through the levjdng of a countywide equalization tax. The tax would, in effect, require wealthier districts to use part of their tax revenues for support of thek poorer neighbors. Rodda said that despite the setback there was stiU "some life" left in the Governor's biU. However, Senate President Pro Tem Hugh Bums, D - Fresno, said the measure was "dead as a doornail." Bums also remarked that he had spoken with the governor and found Brown "not unfriendly" to Unruh's bil. The Unruh measure, he continued, had "some chance" for passage in the upper house. Unruh's plan evoked widespread criticism when first introduced. However, he his modified it considerably and says now that it satisfies most former critics. In other action the Senate ap proved two of the governor's tax bils and moved another into position for final action. The two bills bring state personal taxes and state bank-corporation taxes more into conformity with federal laws. The thid, which passed the Senate Finance Committee, would grant $2.75 million in income tax reUef to 1.1 milion state taxpayers. Woyward capsule lands in orchard MONROVIA (UPI) - A wayward meteorological space capsule landed in a Southern California fruit orchard Thursday, 60 miles away flrom its launching pad at Point Mugu. The Navy sent the scientific space package aloft by rocket from the Point Mugu Pacific Missile Range headquarters and its parachute opened on schedule at an altitude of 209,000 feet. But as the three-pound payload began its descent over the ocean beneath an orange and white parachute, shifting winds steered it inland over the Los Angeles area and radar men lost track of it. Mrs. James Silvert notified authorities when she saw the chute land in an orchard near her home here, and it was returned intact to the Navy. The package was valued at ^00. Goldwafer in new attack on defense policy STOCKTON, Calif. (UPI)Sen. Barry Goldwater leveled another attack against the mill tary policies of the Johnson ad- mmistration Thursday—and tos sed a personal challenge at seven members of the Califor nia legislature. The Republican presidential hopeful from Arizona, who completed a two-day tour of California and departed for Washington, accused the Defense Department of gambling recklessly with the national se curity by claiming the United States is increasing its military superiority over the Soviet Union. Earlier in Millbrae, Gold water challenged the seven legislators, who are backing New York Gov. Nelson Rockefeller m the race for the GOP presidential nomination, to "call me a liar to my face." The legislators announced Wednesday they would tour California to warn that extremists were attempting to take over the GOP in the state through the Goldwater cam paign. There are some Republicans in this state who would rather see the party go down the drain than see me elected," the Arizone senator said. "If they want to call me a liar, I wish they had the guts to call me a liar to my face." Roclcefeller calls for aid to education friend's house and he dismisses! the cook for the evening. "Then," said Inger, lifting an eyebrow of her ottn, "we start bumping into each other around the house, and what is cooking is pretty obvious," On a recent show, to help out a gal pal, she auditioned for the role of an exotic dancer in a filmy harem costume. By coincidence, Morlcy and a friend jom the audience while her face is turned, with her backfield in motion. "That's KATIE," gulps Morley. "How do you know?" asks his friend. "Never mind," says Morley. So. So the marriage is beiiig plotted for next television season, and one of the show's wTit- ers has hinted to her that she will be going into politics, too. Will Katie win? Tune in n e s t week. A bubbling, talkative Inger Stevens surprised us. When she first arrived in HoUywood to costar with Bing Crosb iny MGM's 'Man on Fire" she was about as communicative as-Garbo. "I had been brainwashed by the studio," she said. "They didn't want anyone to know that I had been a night club danceri and had worked as a model. They told me to just say that I had studied acting with Lee Strasberg, which I did, and that I was the daughter of a Columbia University professor." A big screen movie, "The New Interns," puts the Stockholm- bom blonde on display this summer as a social worker. Summer also will take her to Sweden, where several of her tele-| vision shows will be filmed. It will be her first trip back since she was 13. Hope f o update county zoning, planning laws SAN BERNARDINO (CNS)- An attempt to clear up a logjam of proposals for bringing county zoning and planning laws up to date was launched Thursday by the County Planning Commission. The commission ordered the first of a series of special meetings to consider changes m the law for Friday, May 1. The commissioners will be paid for the session, under a ruling recently by the Board of Supervisors that paid meetings no longer will be hmited to four per month. The commissioners receive $20 per meetmg, plus mileage and meals. WiUi Uie lifting of the four-per-month limit, the commission Thursday appeared ready to set out on an ambitious scale of sessions of work that has been held up for several years. The May 1 meeting is to be devoted to considering changes in the county ordinance affecting variances, the ordinance relating to parkmg, a proposal for an ordinance relating to condominiums, (the new method of providmg coopera five housing) and possibly an ordinance to control the divi sions of land into two or more parcels. CORVALLIS, Ore. (UPD- Encouraged by a legislative success m his home state. Gov. Nelson Rockefeller of New York took to the campaign trail m Oregon again today and called for a three-point program of federal aid to education. In remarks prepared for delivery at Oregon State University, Rockefeller said "increased efforts on the part of the federal government, the states, communities and private philanthropy" were needed to meet the higher education challenge. He flew here from New York where a special session of the legislature late Thursday approved revisions of the state's liquor laws. Rockefeller was criti'cal Arizona Sen. Barry Goldwater, also a candidate in the May 15 Oregon Republican presidential primary. He said "Goldwater has stated on the floor of the Senate that he was opposed to any form of federal aid for ed ucation." Before leaving Albany, Y. Y.. for Uie West Coast, Rockefeller said he planned to "go all the way" and would not give up his White House bid until after the votes are counted at the GOP national c o n v e n t i o n at San Francisco in July. Mrs. Mock on last leg of world flight EL PASO, Tex. (UPI) -Mrs. Jerrie Mock landed at El Paso today, stayed 50 minutes and took off for Columbus, Ohio, on the last leg of her flight to become Uie first woman to fly soto around the world. Dressed in a powder blue skirt and sweater, Mrs. Mock, 38, powdered her nose, had her 11-year-old Cessna 180 plane refueled and noted that she was anxious to get home to her bus band and two children. She has been away since March 19. She must fly about 1,650 miles to reach Columbus. Controllers in the tower at El Paso Inter national Airport said Mrs. Mock told them nothmg about making a stop en route. The weather was reported good all ths way. El Paso was out of her way. But she flew to El Paso because she needed the distance to make the required total of 22,858.8 miles for a record. She lost some mileage earlier when she bypassed Singapore. Mrs. Mock flew to El Paso from Tucson, Ariz. Mrs. Mock is scheduled to arrive in Columbus for a big civic welcome early tonight spokesman for the welcoming committee said Mrs. Mock would fly direct from El Paso to Columbus. OUR ANCESTORS "I traded your crossbow for this horn, William TelU- we'd rather hear your overture!" Cardiac nurses to hear Lewis Eleanor Durmmond, Ed. D., assistant professor of Medical- Surgical Nursing at the University of California at Los Angeles, will be one of the two featured speakers at the April 22 session of the Car^ac Nurses Institute.

The run, the third to be held for students at the two schools is being sponsored by the Noon and Evening Kiwanis Clubs of Redlands and the Yucaipa Kiwanis Club. The purpose of the event is to emphasize the relationship between safe and economical driving/Dale Pence, chief steward for the event says. The run will cover approximately 146 miles and has been logged and routed through the combined efforts of the California IDghway Patrol and the Automobile Club of Southern California. In preparing the route the two agencies point out that the run, which takes approximately 3V3 hours to complete, will travel over all types of streets, roads and freeways. "Records indicate that the best drivers are also the most economical drivers and that speed has no place in safe eco nomical driving," Harry Hertz, manager of the Automobile Club's Redlands Distiict Office, says. Each entrant will be judged on two counts: observance of all safety and traffic rules and the amount of gasoline used to negotiate the course. Adult ob­ servers will ride in each car to assess penalties for safety] infractions. To give all automobiles and drivers an equal opportunity, regardless of size and weight, automobiles entered will be judged on the basis of a ton mile formula. Trophies will be awarded the winners during a luncheon im mediately following the run in the Redlands High School cafeteria. The tropliies are being donated by Mobil Oil Co., and will be presented by representatives of the sponsoring organi zations. Starting point and finish hne for the run will be at Bill Young's Mobile Service Station, Brookside avenue and Barton road, Redlands. Whose right to whizz? MEMPHIS, Tenn. (UPI)—The nation isn't big enough for A.J. Wiss & Sons C;o. and a Gee Whiz Tool Corp., both selling the same type of products, according to a trademark infringement suit fied in federal court Thursday. The Wiss firm of Newark, N.J., asked Oiat tiie Gee Whiz firm of Memphis change its name to end public confusion. Both firms sell shears, snips and clippers. Nuclear freeze proposal bekl too ambitious GENEVA (UPI) - Some offl- dais at the 17-natioa disarmament conference said today they think President Johnson's nuclear freeze proposal may be too ambitious for immediate East-West agreement The U.S. proposal, presented m detail at the conference Thursday, calls for halting production of all long - range - missiles and strategic bombers. Soviet negotiator Seinyon K. Tsarapkin immediately rejected the plan as "unacceptable" on the grounds that it would provide "control without disarmament" He said it would not bring about the destruction of existing weapons but would give the West a chance to use control measures to spy on the Soviet Union. Conference sources, who asked not to be identified, said the type of inspection involved in the freeze proposal gets to the heart oi the problem of verification, of the sort that would be required for complete disarmament For this reason, they said, it wil be tough for East and West to work out agreement on the proposal at this time. If the freeze were adopted, it would put an end to the nuclear arms race and the verification procedures established could lead the way toward total disarmament the sources said. But t'.ere is no sign that Russia is ready to permit international inspectors to look at Soviet missile and bomber factories and rocket - launching sites to police the freeze, they said. Mine fuse blasts hurts two in school CULVER C3TY (UPI)—A student accidentally set off an anti-tank mine fuse in a iugh school algebra class Thursday, injuring two 16-year-olds. Police said Rick McClure— who suffered cuts on his left hand in which he was .holding the 2 by 3-inch cylindrical fuse when it exploded—got the fuse from classmate Daniel Johnson, who picked it up while cleaning out a store where he works part-time. Gary Simon was standing near McClure when the fuse exploded, and he suffered shrapnel and splinter cuts around the abdomen.
