I 'Take 5' By TOM WALLER WHAT'S THE most popular television show? According to ratings compiled by the A. C. Nielsen Co., it's the Flip Wilson show on N.B.C. Nielsen says Wilson has the best average rating in four test categories divided according to-age and sex. - o - BOB PRATT (see feature story elsewhere in this paper) would be interested in knowing what the Nielsen poll had to say about the "Marcus Welby" show he appeared on last week. Notice that the show is preferred by women more often than by their male counterparts in the 18-49 and 50-plus age groupings. In fact, it didn't even make the top 10 for men 50 and over. PRATT SAYS the episode in which he appeared was the last of this year's Welby series; the re-runs start Tuesday. Being on the last show was significant, Bob said, because they wanted to leave a favorable impression. - o - MEN 18-49 LIKE Bill Cosby (10th). But it may not be enough to make General Foods want to sponsor the show another season, because Cosby was only 23rd with women 18-49, and they buy the groceries. GUNSMOKE HANGS in there tough for another season - tops with women 50-plus, and second-high with men in the same age category. However, it rates 21st with women 18-49. YOUNG PERSONS watch movies more than older persons, judging by the high ratings for the Sunday and Monday movies among the groups. They don't make the top 10 with older people. THERE MAY be good reasons to doubt the accuracy of this poll as a reflection of viewing habits, but don't doubt the validity of procedures used to obtain this information. A newsman I knew was polled by Nielsen about a year ago. His family was asked to keep track of its viewing for two weeks. He doesn't know how they decided to call on him, or even how they got his name.

C. tune-in - 0 - NO ONE was injured in the bomb blast which shook the U.S. Capitol last Monday. But the cause of non-violent protest was. Is it any wonder that after three political assassinations and numerous bombings in the past decade, we now find ourselves concerned about secrecy in government and repression of both politicians and private citizens? MY CONCERN is that if dissent is too closely associated with violence, violence will surely bring repression of individual rights. This may be what happened in Des Moines last Monday when security people kept watch on State Representative Dan Bray, 24, a former Algona resident who is now serving in the legislature and going to law school at the same time. ACTING ON an intelligence report by the Secret Service (which no one would produce later), precautions were taken to keep Representative Bray from saying anything in the presence of President Nixon, it is no secret that the two men have differences in foreign policy. But Bray was smeared by a report which he said was "wicked and erroneus." He said he had no plans to say anything during the President's appearance in Des Moines. ASSUMING THE young man from Algona is telling the truth, and I think he is, where did that intelligence report originate and for what purpose? Was it to discredit Bray's dissent to administration policies? Let's hope not. Some questions remain unanswered. - o - THERE'S AT least one sexist in Algona. According to him. "There's only one thing worse than a bunch of women working together ... and that's a whole bunch of women working together." - o - DID YOU HEAR about the "Guess who's coming to dinner"' story from Fairbanks, Alaska? A wild moose calf has been visiting the Paul Crisman home for three meals a day for the past 10 weeks. He scratches outside the house until someone inside opens the kitchen window. Then he sticks his head through the open window and eats from the kitchen table next to it, right along with the Crismans. THE MOOSE, named Tinker, eats about fifty pounds of vegetables a day! The Crismans collect the food from produce departments of local stores. 6 - Kossufh County Advance Monday, March 8, 1971 Ronald Althoff Appointed FHA Asst. At ASCS RONALD J. ALTHOFF Ronald J.
