TUESDAY, JULY 9, 1968 ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH PAGE A-7 Peter Graves Is Now A Happy Actor NOTE — Peter Graves, after some traumatic experiences, Is now established in the CBS hit, "Mission: impossible," and is that rara avis: a happy actor. tty PETEtt GRAVES HOLLYWOOD (AJ>) — One of television's favorite parlor games Is called "biting the hand that feeds you." It's played by actors and actresses in hit series usually after two or three years of having their stomachs fed and egos massaged. At this point, the nouveau-star suddenly arrives at one or more of the following Insights: (1) he has sacrificed his "artistic Integrity" for a series which really Isn't worthy of his talents; (2) he's "bored" with playing the same role week after week; and (3) he Isn't getting nearly the salary or fringe benefits he deserves for "carrying" the show. He confides in the press. "The truth is I'm ready for bigger things. T should be starring in major movies or playing on Broadway. But that fool I took on as my agent signed me to a long-term contract — 1 didn't .know any better: after all. 1 was working al a gas station when we met — and now I'm stuck in this rotten show." The actor who takes this attitude is naive or inexperienced or both, and for his own sake, ought to have some sense pounded into him. Instead, he's apt to suffer a worse fate. The industry just may call his bluff, and he'll find himself back siphoning high octane. What such performers forget, particularly when they start reading their own publicity, is that landing the lead in a high- rated TV series takes more than talent. It requires luck and Um- ing and the contribution of directors, writers, cameramen, stage hands and many others. I can speak from experience. When' I stepped off the train in Hollywood 15 years ago, I figured I was ready to storm both movie and TV citadels. After all, at 16, I'd been the youngest radio announcer in the history of station WMIN in Minneapolis and had received glowing notices for "MacBeth" and "Of Mice and Men." I set my sights on landing a starring role in a major prime- time TV series. Meanwhile, 1 was fortunate enough to appear in several movies, including "Stalag 17." "Rogue River." and "The Court Martial of Billy Mitchell." Finally. I did get a television series. "Fury." It wasn't exactly prime lime (unless you consider Saturday mornings prime time) and while I was nominally the star, a horse had all the good lines. Kor the next six years, my fan mail came from youngsters, G to 10, who figured I was a lucky guy to get that close to such a smart horse. * * * TV I/OG (R) Denotes Rebroadcast (C) Denotes Color ETVI (ABC) 2, KMOX (CBS) 4, KSD (NBC) 5, KPLR 11 C:M-2 Wells Fargo (R) 4 5 News Report (C) fi:30—2 Garrison's Gorillas (C) (R) 4 Daktari (C) (R) 5 I Dream of Jeannie (C) (R) 11 Truth or Consequences (C) 7:«t—5 SPECIAL: All - Star Baseball Game (C) 11 Passport (C) 7:30-2 It Takes A Thief (C) (R) 4 Showtime (C) 11 Of Lands & Seas (C) S:30-2.

By WARREN W. BUNDY County Extension Adviser EDWARDSVILLE - A good crop of high • quality vegetables of many kinds is being grown his year by local vegetable growers. Sweet corn grown lo:ally will soon be abundant at ocal markets. Vegetable growers met last Wednesday at Harley Wil- aredt's farm in Collinsville ownship with five University of Ulnois specialists to exchange nformation about techniques of vegetable production. Vegetable growers talk about a host of topics when they get ogether — vegetable varieties, )ests (weeds, insects, plant dls- mses), labor, weather (it's usually been too hot. too cold, too dry, or too wet), machinery and equipment, Irrigation, mulch, Food and Drug Administration regulations, when harvest will begin, marketing, etc. They also tell a few stories and usual ly have refreshments. Most important, they do a fine job of combining a vast amount of technology to produce and market an abundant supply of quality vegetables. In 1967 food amounted to 19.6 per cent of consumer expenditures, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture. In 1957 we spent more, 22.7 per cent. Sub-soil moisture Is adequate in Madison County upland soils. That is important to good crop growth. Soil probings made to a 36- inch depth in several townships last week showed ample moisture in the sub-soil, The land boom in the United States has lifted average farm land values throughout the 1960's. And the report for the yea rended March 1,1968 shows the past year was no exception. Whit art you doing this lummtr? Summer Cutaloif is here with everything; yon need to do it.

Vegetable Crop Good By March 1 of this year the market value of farm real es- late had increased 6 per cent, from a year earlier. This compares with a prior increase of 7 per cent, Most farmers — and particularly the commercial farmer - can expect little direct benefit from Industrial development in their communities, said John T. Scott Jr., University of Illinois associate professor of agricultural economics, in an address at the Illinois Farm Management Association's recent annual conference. Scott cited more off-farm work opportunities and a possible windfall gain from higher land values as the two major sources of farmer benefits from industrial development. But the off-fann work op- portunities increasing))' require those seeking them to take full-time employment, thus reducing their farming operations to a part- time activity. Moreover, landowner* are the only ones likely to receive windfall benefits from higher land values — and (hose benefits are final In nature, he added. Many smaller farmers already rely heavily on non-farm jobs. Many others now considered to be commercial farmers must, decide soon whether to make the technological changes necessary to maintain farm, earning capacity or seek off- farm income, Scott said. Madison County's annual Black and White Show of Hoi- stein cattle will be Tuesday, July 16 at 7:30 p.m. at the Madi- son County Fairgrounds. Highland. Sponsor of the show Is the Madison County Holstein Club. Everyone interested in Hohtcin cattle Is invited. leaders in the cattle feeding industry have been stressing the importance of keeping slaughter weights down. Research reports show rising cost of gain and decreasing cutabllity as cattle get heavier. Although there Is a limit* ed demand for well-finished, heavyweight cattle, the hi- dustrv cannot afford to have prices depressed by excess tonnage of beef. Studies made on finishing cattle show that an cattle get heavier dally gain goes down, feed per 100 pounds gain goes np, and cost per 100 pounds gain goes up. Powder Puff Derby Will End At Sundown: 75 Still in Race SAVANNAH. Ga. (AP) With five planes across the finish line and another stuck in a "pea patch" 20 miles away, officials of the Powder Puff Derby braced today for the final wave of lady aviators completing a four-day, 2,500-mile cross-country race. Two of the 75 planes left in the race Monday were scratched and another was disqualified. The deadline to reach Savannah is sundown today. A spokesman said five of the teams arrived before sundown Monday. Thirty were reported in Greenville, Miss., preparing for the final leg of the trip. Several put in at Birmingham, Ala., an alternate stop, when threat- ened by a squall line of thundershowers and others were spread along the route stretching as far away as Phoenix, Ariz. The first to touch down Monday was No. 25, piloted by Shirley Fadel Junker and Ilia Mae Carosell, both of Palm Springs, Calif., 12 minutes ahead of No. 45, brought in by Beryl Young and Olga Tarling, both of Queensland, Australia. Third was No. 49, piloted by Cleo Sherbow of Baltimore, Md., and Jean Ralston of Washington, D.C. Later came No. 58 with Joann Stype of Wooster, Ohio, and Ruby Mensching of Akron, Ohio, and No. 59, piloted by Virginia Rainwater of Reseda, Calif,, and Shirlee Kay of Encino, Calif. A spokesman said plane No. 32, piloted by Dorothy Birdsong of Temple Terrace, Fla., and Ethel Gibson of St. Petersburg, Fla., almost made it to Savannah but was forced by icing conditions to land in a field about 20 miles away from the finish. The spokesman said Mrs. Birdsong called and "said she had landed in a pea patch. There was no damage." However, the plane was unable to fly before sundown and the crew was disqualified. Officials said winners will not be determined until late Wednesday after ground speeds and handicaps are comptued, SCHWARTZ & SIMMONS bring you The Best Value Your Money can Buy You Only Buy a Mattress Every 5 to 10 Years Buy Now When You Get The Most For Your Money.
