O k l a . and six fhree Networks lave Stronger rail Schemes LOS A N G K L K S ( A P ) --Head head and toe to toe, the rce television n e t w o r k s will ; it out for strength thi.s fall. U n l i k e last year, when they rugflled into a f a l l season ipplcd by a 16-week writers' rike. a three networks have rong schedules. Despite the momentum CBb arried into the fall because of is past season's runaway rat- gs victory, all three networks tpear more evenly matched an in recent memory. Family life will be the dormant theme in the new season's tows. The heavy concentration . police shows is coming to an id. Six new shows follow in Oklahoma Hit By Tornadoes n n U M R I G H T . Okla.

Roofs were six hours hopscolched north- i blown off and some major eastward to Tulsa, 100 miles streets were impassable be Futuristic Food away. Drumright. a town of 3.000.1 lines, appeared to be the hardest hit n the tornadoes' path. Gov. )avid H a l l ' s office said five persons were killed in the town 43 miles west of Tulsa. Injury figures at Drumright v a r i e d .

Most of i n j u r e d he comedies and several of the Drumright. ew dramatic and adventure lows will be marked by mphasis on warm relationships nd character development. K v e n the police show McMillan and Wife" is going he family way. The McMillans .'ill he blessed with a child at bout midseason, due to the iregnancy of Rock Hudson's ·o-star Susan St. James. In addition, an especially trong lineup of specials, origi- lal TV movies and recent hit heatrical movies are in the of- ing. In the past few months, the etworks have discarded 40 cries, an unprecedented n u m - ler of cancellations. Only five :hows introducer! last fall ' K o j a k , ' ' "Apple's Way," 'Happy Days." "Good Times' 1 nd "The $6 Million Man," are -elurning. The new shows last f a l l were hot through with weaknesses, lartly attributable to the vriters' strike. STRONG CASTING This is not the case for fall. A ircvicw of the new series re- r eals the-.Ti as strong in concept, writing and casting. The only cloud on the horizon ks the possibility of an actors' itrike. The screen actors guild s now in negotiation with the producers for a new contract, 'he present contract expires June 30. Next fall, only a handful of he returning shows will be in heir f a m i l i a r time slots. Hit shows are being shifted to itrengthen weak spots and pro- ride support for the new shows. For instance, CBS is moving' 'Good Times." "M-A-S-H" and 'Kojnk" to Sunday, which t r a - I ditionally has been CBS's wea-| kest night. "Apple's Way" opens the night for CBS and ''Mannix" closes it. ABC, knocked dead on Saturday night by the CBS comedy Dlock, moves "Kung Fu" in at 9 o'clock between two new shows, "The New Land' 1 and "Nakia." "The New Land" follows the life of Swedish immigrants first portrayed in the movies "The Emigrants" arid "The New Land." It's probably the strongest and most appealing new series on (he ABC schedule and ABC hopes it will do to "All in the Family" what "The Wai- tons" did to Flip Wilson. NBC places its new African show, "Born Free," from the movie, on Mondays against ABC's "The Rookies" and CBSs "Gunsmoke.'' Its obvious appeal could hurt the venerable Gunsmoke," entering its 20th year minus A m a n d a Blake as Kitty Russell, and "The Rookies." which starts its third year without Michael Untkean. Untkean was dropped when he held out for a higher salary The Creek County sheriff's office reported 20 to 2o injuries, but that figure appeared to be too low.
