Ottawa County Liquor Store Is Burglarized PORT CLINTON, Ohio (AP)— An inventory was being made today to determine the value of the loot burglars took from the state liquor store at Elmore in Ottawa County.

ABC took us on a full hour tour of the Vatican, complete with glimpses of the Pope, a look at the Sistine Chapel and access to private chapels and chambers closed to ordinary visitors We saw and heard Pope John XXIII as he sat in his private study. The idea was to showr a day at the Vatican starting with opening the gates by the Swiss Guard. It was a reverent and earnest program although it was not done with much imagination. The “Bob Hope Show” Sunday night devoted its major sketches to wary spoofs of television hospital shows and a pointless bit about congressional investigating committees. It was rather an off night for the comedians. The latter half of the program was given over to handing out awards by a television magazine. It was not explained how five or six shows or performers were nominated originally, but readers voted, among others, “Beverly Hillbillies” their favorite new series: "Bonanza” favorite series; Richard Chamberlain, favorite male star, and Carol Burnett, favorite female star. NBC is building lots of attractive acting talent into next season’s “Richard Boone Show,” a series of hour-long dramas to be performed by a repertory company. Among the permanent members of the company will be Lloyd Bochner. who was something of a hit in "Hong Kong” for two seasons; Bethel Leslie, one of television’s busiest and most attractive guest stars; Harry Morgan, half of “Pete and Gladys” and a popular character in “December Bride,” and Jeanette Nolan, wife of “Wagon Tram’s” John McIntyre, who has been a guest star in many a series, including her husband’s. Boone will serve as host on the Tuesday night series and act in all of them—sometimes as star and sometimes, in good repertory style, as a minor character. Recommended tonight: David Brinkley’s ‘‘Journal,” NBC, 1010:30 (EST)—a look at the legend of Wyatt Earp and at the sales of desert land in the southwest.
