ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH Veteran Female Vocalists Returning to Television By PATH PAGE EDITOR'S NOTE - A woman performer, particularly a singer, who admits to having passed her 50th birthday, is rarer than it passenger pigeon. Patti Page, one of the well-established musical stars, explains frankly that It's not vanity, but self-preservation. HOLLYWOOD (AP) -I'm grateful for this opportunity to thank those of you who saw me Oft the Ed Sullivan Show, Music Hall and other television series and wrote how pleased you were that I had come out of retirement Appreciative as I am, I must make a confession. I did not retire—unless you call seven months on the road in night clubs and recording two albums and eight singles annually retirement. It was the other way around. TV retired from me-and from such talented female singers as Rosie Clooney, Kay Starr, Jo Stafford, Polly Bergen and, to a lesser extent, Dinah Show and Peggy Lee. These singers not only dominated the record industry's "charts" in the 1950's but television as Well. Most of us had our own TV series. In fact, Dinah and I had our own shows for several seasons. Then something awful happened. We became 'older girls'. In an industry where everyone was suddenly competing to appeal to the "youth market," we were guilty of the most serious sin of all—having passed our * * * * TV LOG (R) Denotes Rebroadcast (C) Denotes Color KTVI (ABC) 2, KMOX (CBS) 4, KSD (NBC) 5, KPLR 11 6:00-2 Wells Fargo (R) 4 5 News Report (C) 6:30—2 Garrison's Gorillas (C) (R) 4 Daktari (C) (R) 5 I Dream of Jeannie (C) (R) 11 Truth or Consequences (C) 7:00-5 Showcase '68 (C) 11 Passport (C) 7:30-2 It Takes A Thief (C) (R) 4 Showtime (C) 5 Movie (C) 11 Of Lands & Seas (C) 8:30-2 N.Y.P.D.

It seeffled as though the only way to be seen on television, until last year, was to be a long-haired, short' skirted teenieboppet who either gurued with a guru or went "up, up and away" with the Roiling stones. The result, unfortunately, was that a lot of girls in micromtal skirts were revealed to have ml* cromini talents as well. Spirited away from the electronic sane- tuaty of a modern recording studio, and thrust before the TV cameras, they could do little but look sexy as they frugged and bugalooed and desperately lip- synched their latest "hits." Others, with marvelous potential, were pushed too far too fast. At a time when they should have been learning how to cre- e that delicate rapport between performer and audience which distinguishes an adequ. ate dub singer from a star- they were being rushed from one TV pest shot to another. The teenieboppers still lead the big parade, but we're seeing more and more of the vet erflns. Dinah shore made several guest appearances last season. Viewers also saw more of Peg gy Lee, And' Ella Fitzgerald— who*'s the first to admit that miniskirts just don't come In her size—was one of TV's busiest, most ingratiating personalities. Next year, I suspect, you'll hear even more from us 'older girls." 1 have always enjoyed television; I still do. * * * * 9:00-2 The Invaders (C) (R) 4 SPECIAL: "Of Black America — Black History, Lost, Stolen Or Strayed" (C) lt:M-2 4 5 News Report (C) 11 Hitchcock Hour (R) 10:30—2 Joey Bishop (C) 4 Movie (C) 5 Johnny Carson (C) 11 Movie 12:00-2 Movie (C) 5 News (C) 12:10—5 Panorama '68 12:15-4 Movie 12:20-11 News 12:45-5 Weather 1:25—2 News/Sports 1:30—2 Thought for Today 1:40-4 News/Religion (C) Wednesday July 3 5:15-4 Religion/News (C) 5:30—4 Summer Semester (C) 6:00—4 Town & Country (C) 6:30-4 P.S. 4 (C) 6:45—2 Thought for Today 6:50—2 Farm Report 6:55—2 Newsbreak 7:00—2 Lone Ranger (R) 4 News (C) 5 Today (C) 7:05-4 CBS News (C) 7:30-2 Fury (R) 4 Cartoons (C) 8:00—2 Winchell-Mahoney (C) 4 Capt.
