B-12 Alton Evening Telegraph Monday, August 21, 1072 Soap operas to stay, NBC day show chief says By MARY CAMPBELL NEW YORK (AP) — Women's page editors on newspapers, traditionally. are women. Heads of TV daytime programming, also aimed primarily at an audience of women, traditionally. ,we men. But NBC-TV has appointed the first woman director of daytime network programs, to start that job Sept. 1. She is Lin Bolen, 31. who has worked in TV for 10 years, the last five months, since going from Metromedia to NBC, working on late night mystery movies shot for TV. The, most obvious question for a new head of daytime TV programming is. are yon going to get rid of (ho soap operas? Miss Rolen's answer is no. "If I did that, every viewer would tune in ARC or CBS and watcli their soaps. A lot of people have a lot of troubles. They need to know that somebody else suffers the same things they suffer. It's a case where the soaps do fulfill a big need. "What we can do is address ourselves to the material—the things you can write into a script. A lot of information filters through the soap opera that people aren't aware of who write them off as trash. There is counseling about how to handle a cheating husband, medical advice, senior citzen problems, ft all happens on that tube. I think it can be constructive as well as entertaining." But some things are changing. Miss Rolen says. "My mother, for instance, is a housewife who never worked, loves her gardening. But she will say, 'I wouldn't mind having a salary for what I do, to show I'm doing a job, I'm functioning.' She wouldn't have said that five years ago. I think all women are taking a new look at their roles; that is where they are changing. "I plan in my small way to address myself to this."

"I don't think she even knows yet. But I think if we expose her to some new material, maybe a special or a mini-series, I think it is going to be a fare she can enjoy." How will Miss Bolen know what fare women enjoy? "Well, our research department does a lot of research with the viewing audience, all kinds of polls and questionaires are sent out. The daytime research is very accurate. It's a stable audience and they know the audience. "Also, I'm very much in touch with women's worlds, both liberated and housewife. Some women want to have children and some want careers and some want both but all are basically the same in drives. They want to do whatever they do as well as they can. "Information is going to come in a lot of different ways—my reading, research, talking to women—and also being one." Artifacts from the Koster Archaelogical .site near Karnpsville will be displayed at Hatheway Hall on the Lewis and (lark Community College Canipu» this week, beginning today.
