8 (SoliAurfl.RegfSfgf 'MQil, Golesburg, 111. Wednesday, May 23, 1973 TV Bug Hearings Show Complexity of Watergate By RICK DU BROW HOLLYWOOD (UPI) - The televised Senate Watergate hearings can toe an exhausting experience for viewers trying to keep up with the ceaseless flow of questions, answers and formal statements. Television la Review Intricacy piles upon complexity, and thus the hours and hours of words and words sometimes leave one with a thirst for a cool beer on a warm beach. As the details and complications unfold, one instinctively searches for little human details to counteract the formalities. Perhaps it is the taste in clothes of someone being questioned that catches the eye. At one point in Tuesday's hearings, I found myself sizing up James McCord's dark blue suit. I noticed he didn't appear to have a dandruff problem, and I envied him for that. There were some moments in the hearings on Tuesday that probably broke the atmosphere of complexity for televiewers. As an instance: There Were Closeups Samuel Dash, the Senate Committee's majority counsel, had McCord, at his table, show how to bug a telephone (which was not connected). There were closeups of the procedure. Then, later, there were the remarks of John Caulfield about his old friendship with McCord and how they once even thought of going into business together—before the matter now being investigated affected their personal relation ship. McCord, who remained in the hearing room to listen to Caulfield's lengthy opening statement, sat several rows behind him. And the camera caught his reactions to various things Caulfield said.

HENDERSON ST. proceedings, at least to this point, is noticeable. One woman's name has come up in an important way in the questioning, and there are females in the hearing room, and, for all a yiewer knows, perhaps working on staffs behind the scenes. But on* camera, up to> now, the Watergate hearings are a male province. Attention Snapped Back And in this province we daily become more acquainted with the senators. Most of their work, naturally, is heavy-going material. Thus, our attention, which may wander from time to time, is snapped back when one of them injects a personal comment, as when Sen. Howard Baker, before paraphrasing a McCord statement, said to him: "If I'm wrong, for goodness sakes tell me." He wasn't. In fact, one of the things that stands out in the hearings is the astuteness throughout of the senators and their two counsel. In this era of information explosion there is an unending need to work at just keeping up with the flood of material. But you can concentrate on things— especially video's fact output— for only so long before a sort of dulling effect sets in. Shortly after Tuesday's televised hearings were adjourned until today, I flipped the dial, and, by chance, up popped Cary Grant's face in an old movie. It certainly was nice to see him. O'Neal and O'Neal an Impressive Team i O'Neal and Daughter One of the most impressive new acting discoveries of late is Tatum O'Neal, 9-yearold daughter of Ryan O'Neal. Tlie father-daughter team star together in Paper Moon, a film directed by Peter Bogrianftvich. UNIFAX By VERNON SCOOT HOLLYWOOD (Utt) - The most impressive new acting discovery in a quarter century is only nine yean old, a devastating blonde who may not work in (another movie until 1983. She is Tatum O'Neal who stars in "Paper Moon.". Tatum is the daughter of actor Ryan O'Neal and co-stars with her old man in her acting debut as a tiny con artist during the bad days of the 1930s. Her performance m a k e si "Paper Moon" one of the five best pictures of the year, which just happens to be the number nominated for Oscars. Director Peter Bogdanovich, best known for "The Last Picture Show," has steered O'Neal and offspring into the best father-daughter acting team in recent memory. Outshines Her Father Little Tatum outshines her lather in every scene. That is scene to chat with the girl. When he suggested Tatum for the "Paper Moon" role, O'Neal jumped at the chance. He arid Tatum hadn't spent very much time together. The child has been involved ki custody battles between her mother and father since their divorce when she was two years old. During location shooting in Kansas, O'Neal papa and daughter became fast friends. Tatum flits through her role as a hard-boiled hustler one movie career herself. O'Jteal'moment, the next she poses in won an Oscar nomination for,a mirror searching for signs of his performance in "Love impending femininity. Then Story." again she is a sorrowful waif or But it was Bogdanovich who fouknouthed, cigaret-smoking insisted Tatum play the rote of i victim of a loose mother and not, however, the reason O'Neal says his daughter won't act again until adulthood. "Tatum should get back to being a child," he said when production was completed. Tatum, who combines the qualities of Margaret O'Brien with a touch of Jackie Coogan in their movie moppet days, has an expressive face and a natural acting talent that could earn her an Academy Award. Her mother is Joanna Moore, a blonde beauty who enjoyed a Addie in h^s black and white version of the novel "Addie Pray." The director was captivated by the child when she visited her father on the set of "What's Up, Doc?" Bogdanovich took time off from directing O'Neal and Barbra Streisand in a absentee father. When the Paramount picture is released across the country Tatum will return to a boarding school in a small town about an hour's drive from Hollywood* Her father, who has legal custody, will be off making another motion picture.
