Young Hobby Club Homemade Equipment Is Needed for Game By CAPPY DICK "Shore Battery" is a game to play with homemade equipment — a ship made of an egg carton and bottle caps for ammunition. Attach one half of the egg carton to a piece of wood sawed to resemble the hull of a ship (Figure 1). Attach a string to the boat so it can be pulled along the floor. Number the egg compartments of the carton, marking them 1, 2, 3, 5, 2 and 1 on each side of the KJ-section half. These numbers are th'e point values of the compartments. There may be as many players in the shore battery as you wish. They must sit in a row along the wall as the boys are doing in Figure 2. Each member of the battery must be given three bottle caps. Bach cap should be marked with the toss- er's initial. One player act* as pilot and pulls the ship slowly across the ' room as the battery members toss their bottle caps at the carton, trying to land them in the egg compartments. After the ship has run the gamut of the shore battery, it' is picked up and examined for hits. A hit has been nvade when a bottle cap lands in an egg compartment and stays there. Because the caps have the tossers' initials on them, it will be easy to see which members of the shore battery scored the hits. The ship may run the gamut •t> many times as the players PIG. c.

Richard Boone Show Is Doomed By BOB THOMAS' Al* Mevle-Tetovitien Writer HOLLYWOOD (AP)—This is the season when a third or more of the television series get their walking papers. Such terminations inevitably cause -outcries from the creators, and angry letters from television fans. Th% cause celebre of the 196364 appears to be the Richard Boone Show, an attempt to establish repertory company with actors playing different roles every week. The show was carefully watched by the critics, who praised its intentions, though not 'always its execution. Alas, if the ratings are to be believed, it wasn't watched by enough of the public. Boone was incensed when NBC dropped the show, and he is still fuming. I listened to his accusations and then offered Grant Tinker, NBC vice president for western programming, a chance for rebuttal. Boon*: "The way the cancellation was released was inexcusable. The news was leaked to the trade press. Neither I nor the sponsors were advised or consulted." NBC: "We agree the release of the news was unfortunate, and we don't know how it got out. We certainly wouldn't do such a thing when premature printing of the information would redound against us." Boone: "The network's action is the most dictatorial, the rankest I have ever encountered- They gave me a lousy lead-in because I couldn't get a rating. As a matter of fact, our research shows that the series was in the top 10 of every independent poll taken in individual cities." NBC: "Certainly Dick didn't get any help from 'Redigo.' But, judging from the Nielsen rating, his show wasn't able to do better than the opposition — 'Petticoat Junction' and Jack Ben- Odd Fellow and Rebekah PANCAKE O SAUSAGE SUPPER Odd Fellow Hall 203} N.

Boone: "Our show wasn't the greatest of all time, but I think it was the best show on the air this year. We had our "problems. It was obvious after the first few weeks that the level of scripts was not up to the level of performances. I wanted to confer with the network and the sponsors about improving the material, but I was told to wait. "It'looked as if they wanted tq make sure the option passed and the show died. They wanted to stomp on it. It looks like I'm the biggest patsy in the world." NBC: "Only a few months ago, we were just as enthusiastic as Dick about the show. We had to. admit that it wasn't measuring up. That doesn't lessen our great respect for Dick. But it might be better if he would direct his energies toward more constructive lines." —Whether buying or selling, use Telegram Want Ads!
