THE BAYTOWN SUN WediMMdty, December 1, 1*2 RobertUrich Enjoys Role In 6th Series By JERRY BUCK -;, AP Television Writer '•'. LOS ANGELES (AP) — Robert Urich, clad in red, blue, and yellow scuba sear, slips into the huge, glass-walled water tank to complete a scene begun weeks earlier in the Virgin Islands. He has an arc welder in his hands, and outside the tank a camera is aimed through the glass wall. Beside the camera a man works on a steel beam with another arc welder. The flash of the outside welder is directed into .-.the water tank by a mirror and ~4he camera sees Urich's welder -'Cglowing. '2.f Urich spends a lot of time under t'-.water — and in hot water — in his ~;new adventure series for NBC, ••^•'Gavilan." He plays an '' <>ceanographer and former CIA - : ^gent who is always up to his neck '.Tin something. « A few minutes later, still ; dripping wet, Urich heads for his ; motor home parked beside the « stage at MGM. His wife, actress '* Heather Menzies, and their two children are waiting inside. Miss ,* Menzies has a role in the episode ; being filmed. ; As he dries himself with a ; towel, Urich explains that he's - doing various "pickup" scenes to v fill in the shows that were filmed i on location at St. Thomas in the " Virgin Islands. ; "We ran out of time in the ., islands," he says. "We were ; filming on a sunken ship. I'm - looking for something, gold, " treasure, something. There's a ' cave-in and we're trapped. And I cut us free with the arc welder." ; The recent death of Fernando ; Lamas, who was his co-star, is ; much on his mind. "Fernando - and I had this immediate rap"port," he says. "He was such a -warm individual. He always imade 'everyone around him feel !good. • "So you don't replace ;somebody like that. I've had some 'difficult times. I'd get in the middle of a scene re-shooting something I'd done with Fer- 'nando a:nd I'd have to leave the iet." ; The episodes with Lamas were •re-filmed with Patrick Macnee. The character is still Gavilan's •'pal, but the role has been altered to fit Macnee. • "Gavilan" is Urich's sixth "television series, and he says, '."Unlike a lot of other stuff I've ;done, I'm doing it for fun. I had a Contractual commitment to do another series but the fact of the matter is I like to do it. I have fun. 1 like the pace, I like the pressure, ;I like the challenge of getting 10 pages done in one day, I like having to invent things on the spot. •; "And as it turns out, 'Gavilan' is more fun than anything I've done. We're doing high adventure, finding the sunken treasure, • bad guys chasing us. ';'• "Whether it's going to work or riot is in the execution and in the Relationships <of the people. It's Tgot some flash and dash, but I like to think we're going right to the heart of the matter and are doing good solid relationships."

We have changed the cards a trifle. The hand is supposed to have been played at New York's Cavendish Club. Barbara (the mystery lady) was West, the other players were Cavendish chauvinist male pseudo- experts. The bidding is not what you would expect from an expert East. But it got South to one no-trump and Barbara to lead a diamond. She led the deuce. The king was played from dummy. East took his ace and returned the jack which was allowed to hold. Barbara played the three. East shifted to the three of hearts and declarer made three spades, three hearts, one diamond and his one no- trump contract. "Poor girl," said South, "She didn't know the right..." "I made the right play," said the mystery lady seething, "If I played the eight there would be no way to defeat declarer. I needed it as an entry so I could lead a club." "James Bond" Crawford thought, "This lady is interesting, indeed. I will compliment her because she was right. Not that she would find that club lead if she -iid get in with the diamond eight. Even I might not have found it." (NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSN.)
