TUESDAY, DECEMBER 3, 1963 THE REGISTER-NEWS — MT. VERNON. ILLINOIS TV NOTEBOOK Glamour Is Coming Back Arlene, Who Has It Says By DICK KLEINKU NEW YORK (NEA) — Glamor is mnking n comebnck. The lady with this happy news is Arlene Dahl, who is as glamorous as a girl can be without being illegal. She noted how there was a trend, a few years ago, toward girl stars who had about as much glamor as Bobby Baker. But the glamor curve is arching upward. "The young ones," Arlene says, "they've got it. Carol Lynley is truly beautiful. Ann- Margret could develop into a sex symbol like Rita Hayworth. Sue Lyon, especially after her exposure to Elizabeth Taylor, could be very glamorous. Yvette Mimieux is another one. "That's more than we've had In many years." Miss Dahl says she thinks television — with one exception — is neglecting glamor. And thereby missing a bet. "The exception," she says, A Man Says "Nerves" Ruined His Home Life Recently a local man said his nerves were always on edge and caused him to bo so mean tempered with his family it ruined his home life.

I think producer Aaron Spelling is a very smart man, although I Imagine Carolyn Jones, his wife — they're separated now, though —gave him the idea. He uses glamorous girls in little parts. No money, but fun to do." » * • "An actor has no control over his performance on television any more," says Piper Laurie. Her feeling, and she expressed it between prettily gritted teeth, is that the film cutters have taken over. They have moved in, scissors and tape in hand, and it Is they who now control television drama. "I'm scared to death," Piper says, "waiting to see the 'Ben Casey' and the 'Eleventh Hour' I've done. I just don't know how my performance has been changed by the film cutters. 'I did a show once where the part had humor, and I added some humorous touches of my own. It came out with no humor at all it was all cut out. What remained was a rather dull, rather ordinary person and a show that was consequently very routine."

A JzlQ SUBSCRIPTIO a v 8 Guard In Class With Lynda Bird A V 1 By TOM JOILNSON AUSTIN, Tex. (AP) — Secret Service agents assigned to protect President Johnson's 13- year-old daughter at the University ot Texas may find the duty more rewarding than expected. A friend of Lynda Bird Johnson's quoted her as saying Monday in her dormitory room with reference to the agent who accompanied her to classes: "He sils in the class and seems very interested. He's learning things too." Lynda Bird is taking a 19- hour class load of English, Latin, history, government, chemistry and Bible. A sophomore in the School of Arts and Sciences, Miss Johnson returned to classes Monday with more than 20,000 other students at the university. She was taken from her dormitory by Secret Seivice agents Nov. 22 immediately after the President was shot in Dallas. Agents took her to the governor's mansion in Austin for protection. She attended the funeral services in Washington with her family and returned to Austin Sunday. Lynda Bird's close friends— Merry Nell Van Fleet, 18, a freshman student from San Antonio—said the Johnsons' eldest daughter had not been appreciably changed by the swift turn of events. "She's taking it all in stride," Miss Van Fleet said. At least, three Secret Service agents have ben detailed to guard Miss Johnson. She lives with 800 other women students in a university-operated dormi- Mireo On Guard tory. At least one agent is with her wherever she goes in public. Inside the dormitory, the Secret Service has set up an office in a glass-walled room that commands a full view of the lobby and main entrance to the building. Extensive telephone circuits have been set up in the of lice. Despite the tight security .student life goes on as usual at the dorm. Agents said no interviews with Lynda Bird would be permitted. Reports from close to the White House have said the President's daughter may transfer late in January at the end of the current semester to a school in Washington. They said such a move would greatly simplify the job of guarding her. Another daughter, Lucy Bainns, 16, attends a private Ui";h school in Washington. POLICE COURT Kenneth H.

(AP) — None of 20 integrated motels and hotels in Kentucky report any significant number of Negro customers, according to the state Commission on Human Rights. Managers in seven cities and towns were contacted. "W hen questioned concerning their policy of serving without regard to race, all of the managers seemed to be satisfied with the way the policy had worked out in general," the commission said.
