T. HA»ILIN HOLLYIVOOD — (NEA) — Living up to the exotic Oriental image isn't all incense, lotus blossoms floating on reflecting pools and secret, sliding doors. "It can be frustrating," said Pilar Seurat of the long black hair, exotic almond eyes and teak brow'n coraplextion. Also amusing — and this we will let her discuss after the proper introduction. Cast credits on television shows are so fleeting the name may have escaped you, but chances are you would recognize Pilar almost immediately. She's the porcelain doll, Suzi Wong type. She's impish, but with a certain demure, fragile quality. She's Eurasian, bora in the Philippines of French, Scottish and Philippine descent As the 'Oriental" type, she's constantly ill demand for television shows and movies. But please don't tell anyone that I'm fnistrated," she pleaded. "I really don't want to be the one to shatter the Oriental image." In "Oriental" roles, she has played a Burmese wife, a Vietnamese soldier, a Japanese housewife, a Puerto Bican gang girl, a Chinese lady of easy virtue (m "Naked City") South Sea island dancer and even aa American Indian maid, 'Everything," she said, "except what I am — a Philippine bom Eurasian." In HoUy^vood, it figures. Pilar's own story is as exciting as some of the television drama she has played. Her father was an officer in the U. S. Intelligence Corps when the Japanese invaded the PhiUp- pines. She spent the duration of the war in the back coun try, with her mother, sister and brother. The penalty for losing in this game of hide and seek she Lava flows from Mt. Etna CATANIA, Sicily (UPI) — A flow of red-hot lava streamed from the central crater of Mount Etna early today after a scries of explosions durmg the night. The lava was nmning down the eastern slope toward the sea. Etna, Europe's largest volcano, has killed an estimated one million persons in the course of recorded history. played was death. Happily, she and her family survived, and at war's end the family was reunited in Los Angeles, where high school drama classes led to a career. Over cold tea Pilar warmed up to her frustrations. "It's amazmg," she said, "and I guess it is so about all Oriental t3T)es, Men expect me to be helpless and clinipng and not very smart. Women think I'm after their boy friends or husbands and hate me on sight. "I have.this strange feeling that some people are convinced I'm conniving and shrewd and unmerciful" What Pilar would like you to know is that she's no helpless siren or at all mysterious. She's self-reliant, interested in politics and "mad about the Dodger baseball team." She dreams of playing the typical American girl next door. "To Troy. Donahue, if pos sible," she says. But does she ever land a role in which Troy kisses her? No. "I'm always being killed by Robert Loggia or somebody else," she shudders. It's nice dreaming. "But please don't tell anyone," she repeated "Casting directors wouldn't call me for mysterious sirens. Wives wouldn't hate mc. Men wouldn't run to. light my cigarette and then kid about my being a spy or a siren sent to lure them to their destruc- Uon." Seriously, she dreams of a 'one world" day when her almond eyes and brown skin will be welcome to any role. "Paul Bunyan's a great guy, but I wish he'd look where he's going!"

(First publication April 14, 19S4> By EICK DV BBOW HOLLWOOD (UPD-There have been rumors for some time that network television wouldn't mind giving baseball games a big splash if only, it was modestly hinted, the na tional pasttime would adapt itself to video. After all, other sports —football, golf — had come around allowing players to be wired allowing announcers to speak to participants during a contest, and otherwise sanctioning show biz gimmicks in the midst of competition. CBS-TV and NBC-TV present !y broadcast major league day time baseball games on weekends, but this is hardly a big splash because the contests are not seen all over, and the networks put up with the ordinary moments, kindly allowing the national pasttime to continue as it is. Thus when we mentioned the industry-known ru mors 11 days ago, suggesting that big money has no small in fluence, there were cries of proper anguish and unhappy disbelief from readers who are true baseball fans. Monday ABC-TV brought the rumors frankly out mto the open, with specific proposals — and where they will end. who knows? An ABC-TV leader, in speech here, suggested that baseball's 162-game schedule might well be reduced to 60— repeat, 60 —games per season if the sport is to be attractive to network television. As an ABC handout para phrased the remarks: "With 60-game schedule — tyvo weekend games a week—big league baseball could adapt itself to network television and thereby increase attendance at the games and put baseball on a much sounder financial basis." Under the plan, contests would be seen nationally with only those areas where games are played blacked out. "The teams would be able to reduce their rosters, fielding only their best players. A team would need only three or four of its best pitchers." .^BC offered some analysis: "The appeal of baseball has also suffered from the long periods of idleness. The average major league game today lasts about two hours and 45 min utes, compared to roughly two hours flat 20 years ago. Too much time is consumed by stretching pitcher changes, strategy meetings, and just plain indolence." Further: "It is now time for some of our tradition-bound institutions to do a little adapt- mg" to television. In doing this, they would "adapt without affecting the integrity of their NOTICE TO CBEDrrOES No. 33479 Superior Court of the State of California, for the County of San Ber- Estate of lONE CAiEERV.

One thing it is important to avoid, it was suggested, is being "over-exposed." AH of these suggestions bring to mind some ideas: —To begin with, it is unlikely that the coming pay-television movement, which plans to offer full-length unfettered games starting with the Loi Angeles Dodgers and San Francisco Giants, could think of a better or more popular argument agamst the misnamed "free" television. Under the plan, "free-television" would immediately cost baseball fans —of which there are many—102 games a year out of the schedule they follow devotedly. —Second, the plan offers some decent advice for the networks themselves. For instance, the matter of over-exposure. Television suffers badly from it. There are long periods of idleness and just plain indolence. It might be wise to cut back programming to just few hours a m'ght, fielding only the best players. —Tliird, without daily games, •what will there be to discuss in steam baths and bars? Before you know it, a lellow will have no excuse not to talk to his wife. Further, there is nothing very exciting about the prospect of cheering for a 10-game winner. U.S. agrees to air base talks in Libya WASHINGTON (UPI) — The United States has agreed to start discussions with Libya April 29 on the future of U.S. Wieelus Air Force Base near Tripoli. Under a 1934 treaty, the United States has base rights until 1971. But the Libyan chamber of deputies asked in March that negotiations be started to terminate the agreement. The Wheelus base is used primarily for gunnery practice for U.S. and other NATO units. THE ALMANAC NOTICE OF BEARING OS PETI.
