6 (folesbyrrg,, Reflister*Mgj[l, (jdlesbufg^ 111., Tuesday, June 19, 1973 Watergate Hearing Cancellation Affects All Networks err/TV** /mil , for yourfauqhism Dear Penny, t enjoy your column very much, but last night "Burned lip*' burned me up just a little. t am a recipient of food stamps. Now I'm not wildly., happy about It, but it is very necessary, and we couldn't get along without them. It is a good program. Yes, food stamps are for staples, but suppose the lady In question has small children who want some candy and nuts. Don't you think it would be nice for them to have a treat once in awhile? What would you do in a case like that? Do you think a dollar or two makes that much difference in foodstuffs? Pood stamps are for staples alone—that means anything you can eat or drink—meat, vegetables, candy, pop, aspirins or cough syrup. It also means no soap, tobacco, matches or paper products. These things have to be cash. Thank you, Penny, for your patience with an old lady. My children are all married, so I have no little ones at home now. But if I did, I believe I would buy them a few little things now and then, even if I am receiving food stamps. It's nice to have someone to write to so you can get the gripes out of your system. Food Stamper Dear Stamper, I really don't believe the most hard-hearted person would want to see a child deprived of all goodies, no matter what the state of his parents' finances. I believe that Burned Up's con> plaint was that she thought the person bought large quantities of canned nuts and candies with the stamps. There has to be some balance struck for attitudes on welfare. While you can hardly expect the hard-pressed taxpayer to take actual abuses of the system kindly, those fortunate enough NOT to be on welfare must have some realization, too. that welfare recipients have children who want the same things they see other children have. I believe it is an extremely rare case where people get aJong well with welfare as their only means of support. I rather suspect it is an uphill struggle. If the persons in charge will work toward a system that would preclude cheating, and taxpayers would attempt to understand that system, it would be beneficial to ail. SyBJOKbUBUDW HOLLYWOOD (UPI) - Mart day's decision to pMtpofifc the Senate Watergate hearings during the visit of Soviet Commit nist Party chief Leon i d Television In Review Brezihflev affected programming on all three commercial video networks on an immedi* ate basis. In the recent past, the hearings, carried live,- have been broadcast under a system in which ffficVTV, OBS-TV and ABC-TV take tuffis presenting the proceedings on different days. But all three networks had announced plans to cover the segment of the sessions that had been expected to begin today because df the scheduled questioning of John W, Dean III by the Senate cdmmittee. In Addition In addition . to the live coverage of the Relftrtgs by the commercial networks, the noncommercial Public Broadcast* ing Service network has been presenting each day's full proceedings on a taped basis at night. The senate committee decided to postpone the Watergate hearings for a week at the request of Senate Majority Leader Mike Mansfield and Minority Leader Hugh Scott. VmB the live televised pt oceed ings are scheduled to resume next Tuesday after President Nixon has concluded his summit negotiations with Brezhnev The chairman of the Commit tee, Democrat Sam Ervifij said he could "see why the President's attention might be distracted , by the Watergate investigation while he is trying to negotiate arms limitations." Only Member Against Hepublican Sen, Lowell Weicker, the only member of the committee to vote against delaying the proceedings, said "If Mr. Brezhnev wants to understand our system of democracy, I know of no better way than to have him see these hearings go forward." Another senator, not on the committee, suggested it would be difficult for the President to negotiate from a position of! strength while the hearing's are on television. CBS-TV, meanwhile, says Brezhnev's video address to the American people Will be presented as a 30-minule broadcast early Sunday evening in the first half of the time period usually occupied by the network's public affairs series "<J0 Minutes." When Nijcon visited Russia ast year, he made a television speech to the Soviet people. Directors Next To Strike Film Industry? By DICK KLEINER HOLLYWOOD, Calif.

Celeste Holm plays Aunt Polly, and Johnny Whitaker, star of the TV show, "Family Affair," plays Tom Sawyer. Family Movie Buff Dear Buff, Thanks for writing. That should give hope to those who have been asking for such a movie. Dear Penny, We have recently moved to Galesburg from another state, and we really haven't met our neighbors at all. Where we lived before, we always took turns watching your neighbors' home when someone was on vacation. We are planning a trip back home in two weeks, both as a vacation and to finish up our business there. De you think our neighbors would be put off if we asked them to keep an - eye on our house? New In Town Dear New, Neighbors in Galesburg do the same favor, so go ahead and ask. I'll bet you meet with a friendly response. You may also call the Galesburg Police Department, tell them how long you will be gone and ask them to check on your house while they are on patrol.

So Debbie tucked her dancing shoes un- CAROL, Do you der her arm and went back to work. When Richard Roundtree did "Shaft In Africa" in in Ethiopia with Emperor Haile Selassie.

Exhibit A: at a recent affair, I was chatting with Cissy and Bob Conner. Bob is a fine character actor, and Cissy, his wife, is the daughter of the great director, William Wellman. The conversation was about peanut butter and how many ways it can be used. I told them how Doris Day had said she uses it when she cooks rack of lamb, but they had a better tip. Cissy says Fred Mac-Murray told them to spread it on com-on-*hercob. They do, and it's great.
