I Wanted- (Continued from page 3) it. With me, it affected my throat —my throat was paralyzed for 36 hours or so. "Because of that, two things happened: I developed a nasal voice which I still have. And I didn't develop very many muscles. As a boy, anybody could beat me up. And I couldn't run fast enough to get away. "I was a nothing. And every- g body wants to be a something. | Gradually, I developed my own special something. I found I had j a facility for making sarcastic C statements. And I said funny things at school. Actually, when I think about it, I realize that I have been acting since I was 5." And so an actor was born—or, more properly, Henry Jones backed into acting. * * * At the moment, he's concerned about his 13-year-old daughter, who seems to have inherited his interest in things theatrical. "I'm afraid Jocelyn wants to be an actress," he says. "I say afraid because acting is a bad career, especially for a girl. 1 don't think I've ever met an actress who is a happy person. All actors are a bit nuts." Jones' cynicism has extended now to cover the whole spectrum of entertainment. "I don't like plays and movies any more," he says, "and I don't even have a television set. I guess there's something wrong with me. Really, I see nothing entertaining in most movies and plays. Maybe it's because I've been in this business too long— 28 years."

Like a Robber in Home "Go ahead. Push the button. Push the Button. 1 * By DICK KLEINER NEW YORK (NEA) - You think you've seen commercials? Buddy, you don't know what commercials are yet. Today's television pitches, compared to what Lies In wait for you just around the calendar, are as soft as a duck's down just after a shampoo. Coming up, if you can believe Vance Packard, are commercials that really are commercials. You've heard of the hard sell? You're in for a sell hard enough to shatter diamonds. Packard, in an article called "New Kinds of Television" in the October issue of The Atlantic Monthly, discusses the possi­ bility of what he calls "cable TV"—television piped into your home by a private cable. • * • And he talked to one cable television entrepreneur, Irving Kahn, president of TelePrompTer Co. Here is what Packard writes about Kahn's thinking: "Kahn's fertile mind envisions many selling uses. He sees the announcer on the TV screen holding up a kitchen gadget and saying, "Mother, if you'd like to own this for four dollars, just hit the acceptance button and it's yours. You'll be billed later by American Express." Or he imagines Betty Furness demonstrating the wonders of a vacuum cleaner or a new model car and saying, "if you'd like a demonstration at your home tomorrow morning, just push button 'D'." * • • Now, isn't that an idea to ice your heart and loosen your check book? It's like inviting a robber in to tea. Such a system, if universally adopted, could throw our existing merchandising arrangement into turmoil. And, from manufacturer to consumer, they're all thinking about what this device would mean to them. Here are some typical reactions. Hiram Yongtrism, consumer: t Continued on page 4)
