KLINGMAN—MINISTER OF MUSIC CARLTON G. CHRISTEN^ON—JAMES E. MILLER MINISTERS "THE BAPTIST HOUR" RADIO tt 'AIK 11 A.M. Television in Review work out to the benefit of the public. Here's how: Normally, the three commercial networks kick off their new seasons in a very brief period— a week or so—with the various premieres going head-to-head with their opposdton shows amid lots of publicity hoopla aimed at grabbing viewers. It's an almost impossible situation for viewers, especially those who want to see the first episodes of the new series but find they have to miss the debuts of some freshman entries because of the packed schedule. Less Than Complete This season, however— the way things look now— the annual "premiere week" will be something less than complete in terms of offering the fall debuts because of the protracted strike. As of now, all three networks expect a num­ ber of the premieres to be offered on a "staggered" basis, as they are ready, over a period of weeks, rattier than in one, jam-packed, seven-day blast. And, presuming this turns out to be the case, it can only be to the advantage of viewers because they will have more opportunities to see some debuts without missing competing premieres. This will not be the total case when the season begins because the initial fall broadcasts of some programs will still inevitably be matched against each other. But the situation nonetheless will be eased for viewers if the "staggering" plans are carried out. But while the production delay and potential staggered debuts may benefit television watchers, the after effects of the strike are giving the networks all kinds of headaches. For example, in addition to the basic fact of having to scramble to get their season together, the networks are faced with losing the big impetus they count on from all the premiere week hoopla. Hollywood Stars Denying Romance LOS ANGELES (UPI) Elizabeth Taylor is busy seeing old Hollywood friends during her "temporary" separation front Richard Burton and Peter Lawford Is equally busy denying any romantic Involvement with her. Lawford and Miss Taylor met for about an hour at a private club in Beverly Hills Friday night, however. Accompanied by Lawford's son, Peter, they spotted a group of photographers upon emerging from the "Candy Shop" and rushed across the parking lot to Lawford's car. Photographers draped themselves across the front of the car as Lawford fumbled with the ignition keys and Miss Taylor glared at the cameramen. A spokesman for Miss Taylor Friday said rumors of any romance between the actress and Lawford were ridiculous. Lawford said he was "enveloped in a murky cloud of media dust" which made him the "villain in the piece" in Miss Taylor's split with Richard Burton. He said nothing could be further from the truth. In a phone interview from New York, Burton's attorney, Aaron Froesch, said there had been no plans nor discussion of a divorce between Miss Taylor and Burton. A spokesman in Froesch 's office had said earlier: "This is really a temporary thing—this will all blow over." Burton is also in the United States, but at the other end of the country. He is staying at Froesch 's summer cottage on Long Island, and was expected to return to Europe in a week. Froesch said Miss Taylor is expected to fly to Hawaii to visit relatives and is due in Rome July 23 to start a new movie. Lawford was separated three months ago from his wife, Mary Rowan, daughter of "Laugh - In" comedian Dan Rowan, and said he was so preoccupied by his own marital problems that he could not be romantically linked with Miss Taylor. He also, sought to quell reports that the 41-year-old actress was involved with Christopher Lawford, his son by a former marriage to Patricia Kennedy, sister of the late President John F. Kennedy. "It's hysterical," Lawford said. "Christopher isn't even 24 as was reported. He's only 18. I think these rumors started because he's pretty good looking and we both picked her up to go to a movie on a previous visit." Buslmell MRS. JAY CLEMENS Correspondent Home Address: 560 W.

Brown Dies at Home One network spokesman men* tions the "residual effect" of the usual hoopla, and that's a big point for the broadeasting organizations. While many series undoubtedly will be starting the season on or near schedule, the lack of the seventy jolt could result in a public feeling that the new television year is just sort of drifting in. Also, when the series- finally are on the air, it will take longer than usual in the season for a network to determine what are its ratings hits and failures, and to act on its cancellation decisions. As a network spokesman says, "We usually have a pretty good indication on hits and failures by the second week in October. But not this year." Another spokesman notes that the studios are good at making up time on production, and feels there will be enough new- season series on the networks at their originally planned time so that viewers will not think there is any kind of chaos—and he's probably right in both these thoughts. However, one thing comes through more clearly than ever as television rushes to get its new season in shape: "Premiere Week", with its usual insane competition, is really for the benefit of the networks, not viewers. Metro Cinema 1 - Peoria, III. SPECIAL ENGAGEMENT NOW SHOWING ALL SEATS — $2.50 METRO CINEMA I PEORIA, ILL. feist HOLLYWOOD, Calif. (UPI) — For the troops who fought World War II, celebrations this week of America's independence have been dimmed by the loss of two great entertainers. Betty Grable, whose enchanting legs raised the spirits of the troops overseas, lost a battle with cancer five days ago. Friday, Joe E. Brown, a comic who made his audiences feel good whether they were laughing or crying, died three weeks shy of his 81st birthday. Death was attributed to complications of old age. He had a history of heart trouble and suffered a stroke in 1969. He also was aflicted with arthritis. Appeared Together Brown and Miss Grable appeared together in at least one film, "Pinup Girl." One of the most respected men in Hollywood, Brown was a leader for years in the film industry's philanthropic causes and worked tirelessly at benefit performances. During World War II he traveled to the combat zones of the South Pacific to entertain U. S. servicemen. He was awarded military citations for his morale-building wartime service. With Brown when he died at his Brentwood home was his wife of 58 years, Kathryn. He also left three children, two of them adopted: Joe L., general manager of the Pittsburgh Pirates; Mrs. Kathryn Lisle of Tarzana, Calif., and Mrs. Mary Fair of Bavie, Fla. Mrs. Lisle and Mrs. Fair were adopted. Their only other child, Don, was a captain in the Army Air Corps in World War II. He was killed in the crash of a bomber during a training flight in October, 1942, near Palm Springs, Calif. He was 25. Brown also left 11 grandchildren and six great grandchildren. He was born July 28, 1892, in Helgate, Ohio, and appeared in more than 50 motion pictures and for years was regarded as one of Hollywood's top moneymaking comedians. He had been in retirement more than 10 years. Despite his squeaky voice, the cavern-mouthed Brown easily survived the advent of talkies after debuting in 1928 His career prospered through such pictures as "Hold Every thing," "On With the Show," "Shut My Big Mouth," "The Daring Young Man," "Chatterbox" and "Showboat." A rosary and mass will be said Sunday at St. Martin's Church in Brentwood. Burial services will be held Monday at Forest Lawn Cemetery.
