As Dan and I see it, the acceleration of change in our institutions, that is both political and social, is so fast that it takes a broad stroke to paint a picture of what is happening now. The broad stroke is comedy because it's the most devastating stroke you can use. Maybe devastating isn't the proper word, but in this sense we think it applies. We can illustrate what is happening out there in "the real world" in a flash on television, make it burlesque, fast and explosive. You see it for what it is. That's the style of our times and finally television is catching up. In the past, it seems to both of us, TV didn't lead, it followed. The pace was set by commercial interests and the material was written and .illustrated accordingly. Now we see a change where the pace of the material is passing the commercials—and, of course, I am talking about our show. Breaking Own Barriers I sound as though we're taking the credits for this but please don't misunderstand. The pace really was set a long time ago, underground, by comedians like Lennie Bruce, Jonathan Winters, Buddy Hackett and ourselves. We were all out there in the clubs popping Mary Poppins out of her tree while motion pictures were breaking down barriers in their own field. Then cams the Smothers Brothers. Thanks to their guts in relating their material directly to what youth was thinking, comedy started breaking out on television at a pace and in areas that were theretofore considered taboo. I think we came into the medium and took it all that much further. And there's Jonathan Winters, [f Winters were allowed to fly tie could give us all a tremendous run for our lives. The only thing that is keeping him down is the old-fashioned format of tiis show. Three years ago even Winters would have been cut to pieces by the censors. I can see where he's picking up tremendous freedom as a consequence of the changing times. Social Change Buffer But at the root of the matter lies the fact that comedy is a Duffer for social changes. If you can see some humor in it, tften ihe change becomes more palatable. We can deal with subjects m our show like race, religion, funerals, politics and mother- lood—any fast evolving institution—and cut them to the bone. How do we get away with it? Because the public is hip, because the medium is hip, the material is hip and its fast and that is exactly what is happening. Dog Severs Friendship With Duck MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) The friendship is over between a young duck named Fuzzy and its pal Smokey, a nine-week-old German shepherd. Memphis city crews found the frazzled duck trapped on city property behind the home of Mr. and Mrs. John Rowland. Smokey and Fuzzy lived peacefully in the Rowland's fenced back yard, even sharing the same plates of food. The Rowlands believe the companionship ended when the puppy discovered the pastime of duck chasing and ran Fuzzy through a hole in the fence. "Fuzzy" is the latest addition to a flock of 22 city-owned ducks at a municipal park. Commission Set To Streamline Criminal Code BOSTON (AP) - The state's 132-year-old criminal code, which has 1,500 different sec- tions, will be revised and streamlined by a 52-man commission. Atty.
