6^- Gofcsburg Reoister-Moil, Galesburg, III, Tutsdqy, May %1, 1973 Super Cops Have Answer To Hoked-Up Crime Film By DICK KLEINER BOLLYWOOD (NBA) "The Sujwr Oops" are coming to the screen. MOM has bought L. H. (Hank) Whltte- 3 tire's book about Dave reenberg and Bob Hantz, the tlh super-tough New York cops. The film will be a big one for the studio. Gordon Parka will direct and Ron tbman will play Greenberg. I- The Lively Arts J Who will play Hantz? I isked the two super cops and ney had fun with the question. Greenberg insisted that thutin Hoffman is the type — #n obvious gag, since Hants is actually a good-looking Mark fpitzish sort.. i They all claim that the book l't the sensational type of 4rime literature and they don't want the movie to be, either. Although they don't have any light of script approval in their contract they know how they're going to get the kind of film they want. "WE HAVE leverage," Dave Greenberg says. "The picture will be shot in the Bedford-Stuyvesant section of Brooklyn and that 's our area. Without our protection, it can't be done. The tough guys there would wreck it and steal the cameras. Unless we get the kind of picture we want, we won 't protect it." Like most real law enforcement officers they aren't happy with most TV and movie cop stories. They say the most realistic is Adam -12, but even that is far from truth"The Adam-12 cops," Hants says, make an arrest and they are back on the street in a couple of minutes. It's Just not done that fast. In New York, it used to take a cop dh average of 14 hours after an arrest before he could get I DONT MISS THIS!

Their favorite expression, which they both like to say, is this: "We carry guns so the public doesn't have to." They're all in favor of gun control but Hants has another idea which he figures Will keep the dreaded National Rifle Association happy. "Let people, have guns," Hantz says, "but control the distribution of ammunition. I don't care how many people have guns if they don't have bullets." They also favor psychological testing of all applicants for police jobs. "A lot of men wear police uniforms, "Greenberg says, "who have no business wearing them." BUT THEY DO hot favor free sale of narcotics (and they are careful to point out that they don't include marijuana among narcotics). "If you let addicts have all the narcotics they want," Hantz says, "you are signing their death warrant. That's because an overdose is the inevitable result. If you try to Bobby Riggs Is Super Hero Fn Mode of Frazier the Lion By DICK WfcSf WASHINGTON (UPI) - To all men over 80, and especially those of us who play tennis, Bobby Riggs is a super-hero. We worship the very gut his racket is aiming with. The Lighter Side Super Cops Real life crime-busters Dave Greenberg, left, ploits in New York City's Bedford-Stuyve- end Bob Hantz earned dual nicknames of sant area. Robin and Batman and Super Cops for ex- limit them they'll want more and crime will be the inevitable result. Eighty per cent of crime is drug-connected." They think that corruption anywhere — and in particular in police departments—should be a federal offenes . . . That way, they figure, maybe we can have some better-run po­ lice departments. Then every cop could be a "super cop." Greer Garson has a dilemma. The great star of so many movies, like so many veterans, is finding it hard to get parts she wants to do. Mostly, that's because she doesn't like most of today's films. Now she's been offered a play, a dramatization of the abdication of King Edward VIII, in which she would play Queen Mary. She'd love to do it — but she says it would mean eight months away from home and husband. Even though there might be a movie in it later she'll probably say no.

Watergate Coverage Bugs Networks By RICK DU BROW HOLLYWOOD (UPI) Television's live coverage of the Senate Watergate hearings has raised the same questions for the networks that breaking news stories always bring up for broadcasters. Television In Review For example, networks—and local stations-4iear from viewers who don 't want tlyeir regular shows interrupted or pre-empted under almost any circumstances. The Watergate hearings are on at hours that normally feature soap operas and game shows on CBS-TV, ABC-TV and NBC-TV, and, as might be expected, some viewers have already protested the preemptions. A breaking story like Watergate also brings up other matters for the networks. For instance: News Departments Want Time The news departments invariably want as much air time as they can get. They generally feel they almost never get enough video exposure to cover things as fully as they would like. But final decisions about air time allocations at the networks come, as a rule, from corporate figures who juggle various options in their minds in each given situation. The financial impact of regular daytime programming on the networks is large. Big profits are possible because production costs of series like game shows are small as opposed to prices of prime time programs. Some years ago, when CBS- TV's daytime soap operas were more of a force than they are now, it was said that - the network's daytime program schedule was the most profitable part of its lineup of shows. So factors like these—as well as judgment of news and the Lawmakers Nix Skinny Dipping AUSTIN,* Tex. (UPI) - The Texas legislature approved a bill -Monday to outlaw nude swimming in a section of the state capital known as "Hippie Hollow." The measure would make it disorderly conduct for a person "to appear stark naked in a public place." Rep. Don Cavness dodged reading the section of the bill describing parts of the body that could not be shown, but said it would apply ''if you appear completely nude; you know, with everything snowing." In 1948, President Harry Truman sent a special message to Congress proposing statehood for Alaska. Alaska became the 49th state in January, 1959.

KNOTTY PINE TAP WATAGA, ILL. — 375 -9918 response of viewers—are con sidered whenever a breaking story comes along. Other Factors Too But then there are other factors as well. And one of them is that, in any case involving a decision about whether to pre-empt a large bloc of programming to carry a sensitive breaking story, networks face the prospect of criticism from those who watch the decision closely. There were headlines in 1966 when CBS-TV news boss Fred Victoria Post Plans Service Memorial Day VICTORIA - Charles A. Warrensford Post 726 of the American Legion will hold public Memorial Day services at four cemeteries Sunday, May 27, it has been announced by Kenneth Naslund, post commander. Members of the post and auxiliary will attend a worship service at Victoria United Methodist Church and have lunch at the log cabin at noon. Service at Salem Cemetery will be at 1:15 p.m.; Center Prairie Cemetery at 1:30, Victoria Cemetery at 2 and Westfall Cemetery at 3 p.m. In issuing an official proclamation for the observance of Memorial Day, Mayor A. W. Sornberger called upon every household and business firm to display the Flag on that day. Friendly resigned over a decision at the network to put on a fifth rerun of "I Love Lucy" rather than Senate hearings on Vietnam., CBS-TV was embarrassed by these headlines. There was some criticism of the network And, undoubtedly, there were those who agreed with the management decision. A news judgment case became, in its way, a political issue. There also are network research departments to figure out just who is watching what. And regarding last week's live Watergate, hearings coverage, NBC research estimates about 35 million persons watch 3d all or part of it Thursday and about 33. million Friday. READ THE WANT ADS!

SEPARATE PEACE John Heyl Parker Stevenson One Show Each Night at 7:30 CHILDREN 60c — ADULTS S1.00 As one member of the Lawrence Welk Chapter of- the Bobby Riggs Fan Club remarked at our last meeting, "Riggs has done more for the morale of middle-aged men than anyone since Frazier the lten." Where once we had Walter Mitty-like dreams of making it big In the arts, sciences, commerce or politics, now we have Riggsian dreams of vanquishing a top woman player In a singles match. Preferably on national television. ! 'iiTCEIflUB With his victory over Margaret Court, Riggs has given us all ia new sense of purpose, direction and, yes, confidence. Evidence of this new spirit of boldness and self-assurance can be seen in tthe gauntlet flung down by Lou Nova, 58-year-old former heavyweight boxer, who has offered to "fight any woman in the world for $100,000." Already, we older players are being treated with more respect. When I was finishing up a mastch the other morning ] overheard some of the com ments of a couple of young women who were waiting for the court. "Did you see that serve?" I heard one of them exclaim after I had sent a zinger whistling through the air "Billie Jean King couldn't have gotten a racket on it." "Itat's right," the other girl admiringly agreed. "Wilt Chamberlain couldn't have touched It «Mttr. tt went eltar over the backstop." ;• Ten days ago, before iUggs routed Mrs, Court, they wouldn't even have beeri looking my way. 1 gave Riggs full credit for creating a "middle age masculine mystique" and it is great to bask in his reflected glory.
