Leonard Stern, who produces McMillan and Wile, was there and he told me, "After hearing Rock sing, I may orchestrate the show next season." iNloiw that the writers' strike is over, the actors and actresses are beginning to re- assemlMe , in Hollywood. To make a living during the dreaded drought they scattered all over. Susan Oliver, for example, went to Canada, where she did 65 talk showst— and she says she got $1.68 iper show. But they did give her the wardrobe of 65 spe- tiaiUy-desiigned outfits. Susan itells me she is gradually phasing out her flying activities. It got ito be too anuch and she was being typed in the public's mind as "the actress who flies." She says now she'll look for new fields to conquer. JESSICA LENZ, the wife of Rick Lenz, Richard Boone's boss on Hec Ramsey, has a small part in Woody Men's new movie. But she never thought she'd get it. Jessica says that when she went ior her interview with Allen he spent the entire hour staring at his shoes and never once looked her in the eyes. Rick, incidentally, ( has written a play which will be performed this summer in Stratford, Conn. Remember John Carroll? The one-time Hollywood leading man is now running a movie production company in St. Petersburg, Fla. He produced a film there recently, "A Ride In a Pink Car" (they may change the title) which stars Glen Corlbett. Opera Singer Faces Charge Of Murder MIAMI (UPI) - Detectives said they would seek three murder warrants today against Opera singer Salwa Merrige Abrams on charges of killing her ex-husband and two chil dren. Mrs. Merrige-Abrams took a handfull of pills after the Saturday murders, police said, and was rushed to the hospital in serious condition. Doctors said her condition was "stable" Sunday. The slayings were discovered Saturday afternoon just one day after Mrs. Merrige-Abrams ended 19 years of marriage by picking up the final circuit court papers. Miss Phyllis Arick, a singer and Mrs. Merrige-Abrams' closest friend, said she visited the soprano's home Friday just after the divorce papers were signed and "everything seemed fine." But Miss Arick said, "she seemed upset, sure, but anybody who goes through anything like that would be upset. I just don't understand it, I really don't." A sheriff's deputy, . after receiving a call from a friend who said Mrs. Merrige-Abrams sounded strange" on the phone, found the performer unconscious on the dining room floor. A note was left, but police would not reveal its contents. Found shot to death in his bedroom was Jack Abrams, 14. Mrs. Abrams' husband, airline pilot James Abrams, 45, was found in another room. Their 10-year-old daughter Melisa Ann Abrams was found dead on the living room floor. The couple had been separated for about a year, with Abrams stopping by Saturday to take the children on an outing. Burton. Liz Split Journalistic Joke? y ""iir i Richard Burton back to Liz MOSCOW (UPI) - That separation from Elizabeth Tay lor, said Richard Burton, was a "journalistic joke" that will end Friday in Rome. And as for published suggestions of a romance between his wife of nine years and actor Peter Lawford, nothing to it. "Good gracious me," Burton said Sunday. "He's just a very old friend." , Lawford has been photographed with Miss Taylor in Hollywood nightclubs several times since she announced July 3 that she and Burton had separated. "It's just a journalistic joke," Burton said of the highly- publicized split when he arrived from Rome to attend the Moscow film ; festival. It was Burton's first visit to the Soviet Union. "My wife and I will meet in Rome on Friday," he said. ''She wanted to come here but her mother is very sick, very ill, and she had to stay with her mother (in California)." Burton said he had spoken with Miss Taylor by telephone Sunday before leaving Rome and added that they have called each other "about three times a day" since Miss Taylor announced the separation. "This is the longest separation we've ever had," Burton said. It will be 10 days." He did not explain how he figured 10 days from July 3 to next Friday-July 20. A spokesman for Miss Taylor said last week she would rejoin Burton in Rome at the end Of this week. They are making two separate films in Italy. 'Sticks and Stones 9 Will Be Aired Following Delay of Touchy Drama By RICK DU BROW HOLLYWOOD (UPI) - CBS- TV made some headlines this past winter when it postponed its scheduled March showing of the play "Sticks and Bones," a fierce drama about a blinded American Vietnam veteran who comes home.

Certain key network and station executives felt that 'Sticks and Bones," which was written by David Rabe, would be particularly "abrasive at the time to many persons because of the emotional upheaval accompanying the return of Vietnam prisoners of war. But producer Joseph Papp, whose New York Shakespeare F estiva 1 organization had turned out. the television adaptation, was incensed at the CBS-TV postponement. He called it "prior censorship" and EVERY DOG HAS ITS DA?! Ours is every Tuesday... when "Coney" goes for 15< AM to 9 PM HENDERSON NO TIPPING - <CpME A$ YQU ARE" That's right. Our original and famous Coney Dog is only 15c every Tuesday. It's a wiener, golden bun, chili, and chopped onion Coney Dog combination. What a way to put on the Dog I Over 2,300 Drive-in restaurants LINCOLN ST A&W 1135 LINCOLN ST. made clear that he doubted CBS-TV would carry it. Drama 's Sharp Tone Papp was not the only one who felt the network would rather be disassociated from such a touchy project. And, having seen the video adaptation of "Sticks and Bones" at a March preview, this viewer can vouch for its slashing content and tone. There is little question it is a production that brings strong reactions from viewers. And now, CBS-TV has announced, the television audience is scheduled to see "Sticks and Bones" after all. The network has penciled in the two-hour offering for prime time Aug. 17, a Friday. Says CBS-TVPresident Robert Wood: "Its rescheduling is in keeping with our commitment at the time of postponement that it. would be broadcast at a later date." And just so no one misses the point of that formally distributed statement, it is accompanied by the original March postponement announcement, which said in part: "It is the conclusion of the CBS television network ... that the broadcast of 'Sticks and Bones' should be postponed and broadcast, to be announced, when the context of its showing will be less distressing and its possible application to actual events less immediate." That March postponement announcement, which took the form of a wire to CBS-TV's affiliates, noted that "Sticks and Bones" had been previewed twice for the stations, and added: "As you know, the play deals in compelling allegorical terms with the callous reception of an American veteran returning blinded from war. Papp Is Pleased "Most of us agree that the Burglars Get Beefy Booty SUN VALLEY, Calif. (UPI) — With meat's increasing cost, it is more and more becoming choice loot for burglars, to the sorrow of packers such as the Hollywood Meat and Provision Co. Thieves broke into the firm's plant during the weekend, police said. The burglars lowered themselves on ropes through holes in the roof and stole $50,000 worth of beef". They also stole a company truck to drive away their beefy booty. production is a serious, con cerned and powerful tragedy Of some of the uglier aspects of human nature as revealed in a highly imaginative contempo rary story. In light of recent developments, many of us both at the network and among the stations are now convinced that its presentation on the air at this time might be unnecessary ly abrasive' to the feelings of millions of Americans whose lives or attention are at the moment emotionally dominated by the returning POWs and other veterans who have suffered the ravages of war. "Never has there been a greater and more serious and responsible sense of concern expressed by our affiliates about a projected program and the timing of its broadcast." CBS- TV's scheduling of "Sticks and Bones" for the last two hours of its Friday prime time Aug. 17 is worth noting from a video viewpoint because late. Friday, prime time is generally considered in' the industry as a poor program slot. Furthermore, the presen? Now Playing thru Weds. Fiddler On the Roof Topol Norma Crane One Show Each Might at 7:30 CHILDREN 75c — ADULTS S1.2S tation of the play is planned for one of the lowest viewing periods of the year—midsummer. In addition, when CBS-TV broke the news of its rescheduling of the drama several days ago, it did so at the start of a weekend, traditionally a time to break a story that you are trying to play down. Nonetheless, assuming "Sticks and Bones" is aired unchanged from the way it was seen in preview, it will bring deep and passionate feelings from viewers. As for Papp, he says that "naturally I'm glad" the play has an air date, but adds that he feels the network is "just trying to get this albatross off its back." Plans for Papp to do a number of specials for CBS- TV now are off, and the producer says he is talking to ABC-TV. Open 7 - Shows 7:15-9:10 p.m. Now thru Wed.! W.P-,.
