Only Two Categories oi TV Roles, Says Actress By CYNTHIA LOWRY AP Television-Radio Writer HOLLYWOOD (AP)-All television roles, whether leading parts or walk-ons, fall into one of two categories: tours de force or pot- sies. This is the analysis of Audrey Christie, a happy refugee from Broadway and soap opera, currently playing a potsy in "Fair Exchange," CBS' forthcoming experiment in weekly, hour-long sit- ur.tion comedy. "A tour de force role is one in which something happens to the character ilsclf," Miss Christie explained. "It is the narcotic ad- diet, the one who commits the murder, the neurotic woman who keeps telephoning the police when she's alone and scared in the lonely house. "But if you play a potsy, you ;ire busy running around laying plot and setting things up so they will happen to other characters. Potsies are the man in the next call, landladies who saw the murderer or—as I am now—a nag- Ring mother." Miss Christie's potsy mother is commanding general of a TV-type household consisting of henpecked husband and teen-age son AP Writer Transferred To Boston NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Kd Tunslall, sports editor of the New i Orleans Associated Press bureau, has been named assistant chief of bureau for The AP in Boston. The 37-year-old Tunslall will leave this week to assume his new duties. Tunstall has been a staff member of the New Orleans bureau for the last 10 years. He joined The AP in 1952 after serving as sports publicity director at Tulane. During his tenure, his news assignments included the Vicksburg tornado in 1953, Hurricane Audrey in 1957, the state visits of Emperor Haile Selassie of Ethiopia and President Charles de Caulle of France and the New Orleans school segregation crisis. He concentrated primarily on sports, covering golf events in Baton Rouge, New Orleans and I ho Mississippi Gulf Coast, racing, Tulane and Louisiana State fool- ball and the Sugar Bowl. In Boston, Tunstall will assist ('lilef of Bureau L. p. Yale to an area comprising Massachusetts, Maine, Vermont, New Hampshire and Rhode Island. plus a young visitor from overseas. This is all part of an elaborate device — contrasting the homelife and mores of Hollywood's conception of average, middle-class American and British families— to keep the homo viewers chuckling for a full hour (less time out for commercials, of course) come fall. At its foundation, it is really a double feature — two situation comedies in one big package. The gimmick that weds tho two is having the English family and the American family exchange their leen-ago daughters for a year. Each show will relate what is happening in both families. All this, of course, makes it necessary to have two complete casts and two complete groups of sets. Rut there is only one camera crew, so things are worked out to have the English cast rehearsing in one part of the studio while the American cast is busy before the film cameras, and vice versa. American audiences are now pretty conditioned to the ways of family shows, inured to the usual comedy portrait of the strong wife with the gentle, timid husband. And we've also become accustomed to the terribly bright, chint- zie interiors that television has made us believe represent the typical, lower-middle income bracket home. But whether (lie sensitive British are ready to chuckle at "Fair Exchange's" idea of the English counterpart is something else again. The set of the living room and dining room, for instance, is furnished in dreary, cluttered style, muddy combination of busy late Victorian and ugly 1920. If the scripts concentrate on lack of central heating, English cooking and other well-known items-, producer Cy Howard may create an international incident bigger than the War of 1812. Aramaic, the original tongue of the Sermon on the Mount, is being added to the language cur- riculiwi of Montreal's Me Gil) University, Teamsters Union Officer Is Named In Damage Suit BATON ROUGE (AP)-Edward G. Partin, business agent for the Teamsters Union Local No. 5 here, is defendant in another damage suit in connection with an auto accident near Cuba, Ala., Dec. 25, 1981. Phillip Tusinski of Massachusetts filed suit for $122,500 for personal injuries he claims ho received when Partin's car collided with the rear of a car in which Tusinski was a passenger. Previously, Leo D. Paris, Havenhill, Mass., had filed suit against Partui for $112,700 for injuries received in the same accident, Paris was the driver of tho car in which Tusinski was hurt Partin also is defendant in a federal court indictment, and eight union members sought an injunction against hi* handling of union funds.

(AP)-A person who is greeted here by a 4-year-old child with "Bon jour, comment ca va?" has probably just met a pupil of Mountain Hill Nursery School. The youngsters' exposure to French was introduced last year by Mrs. Peter Reidemeister, a pupil's mother. • J^ 1 " 8 ' Reidem eister, who had spent two years m France, found an ally in Mrs. Charlotte Olsen, the principal, who says: "A foreign language at the nursery school age level should be caught, not taught, as is the child's native language." Accordingly, the youngsters now are picking up the language in a conversational French play period taught by Mrs. Irving Chernow, who speaks French fluently.

Critics of McNamara contend military advice is shunted aside and that the secretary's top civilian aides are shaping U.S. strategy. The defense secretary is known to feel that this criticism is un- far on the &S70 bomber or on revamping the Army national guard and reserve. McNamara is remaining silent on such declarations as that matla by a House Armed Services subcommittee that the time has coma for Congress to "reassume its responsibility and reassert its authority over the Defense Depart- men."
