AM America Shown Off By ABC By JAY SHARBUTT NEW YORK (AP) -- The ABC television network held a meet-the-press powwow the other day to show off the stars of its new "AM America" morn- jig program, which starts Jan. 6. It also emitted an announcement. The announcement was that Sen. Sam Ervin, D-N.C., who isn't seeking re-election, and former U.S. Atty. Gen. Elliot Richardson will appear as "guest contributors" on the show once every other week. ABC already has said former New York Mayor John Lindsay also will be a guest commentator on the show, but on a once-a-week basis. The stars of the twohour show -- 'Bill Beutel of WABC- TV here, Stephanie Edwards of KABC-TV in Los Angeles and Bob Kennedy of WLS-TV in Chicago -- spoke, among other things, of their hopes for the show's success. Miss Edwards, who for several years has co-hosted a local morning program on KABC, sought to quash rumors she might play the trombone -which she played in high school -- on the new network show. She said that would be silly and besides she isn't in shape. EMBARRASSING She also said she finds it embarrassing when someone asks if she thinks she'll be better than Barbara Walters of NBC's durable "Today" show. That also is silly, she said. Sally Quinn was among the gaggle of scriveners takirfg al his down. t Miss Quinn faced the same will-you-beat-iWalters nonsense n August 1973, when she signed to co-host the "CBS Morning ··Jews," only to leave in January and return to reporting for the Washington Post. I guess I should have asked her how things are going now, but (a) ABC had the floor; (b) too many journalists are interviewed these days, and (c) "Weekend," NBC's new late- night magazine program, is airing a story Saturday called, 'Whatever Happened to Sally Quinn?"

T h e resemblance would ilcase her, since her idol is the legendary Kate. She bears a famous name. Tucker Refuses Use Of Stale Funds LITTLE ROCK (AP) -- Atty. Gen. Jim Guy Tucker refused Tuesday to approve the use of state funds for Secretary of State Kelly Bryant to hire a private lawyer to represent him in the Capitol mall construction case. Tucker's refusal was to he in effect until Bryant could be more "precise" about his con tention that Tucker had a con flict of interest. The suit over the mall.projec 1 Is scheduled for trial Thursday before Chancellor Darrell Hick man of Pulaski County, who was told about the problem be tween Tucker and Bryant Hickman called' some of the parties into his office to discus: the matter.

Cathy has the same kind of Bishops Open Debate On Ordination OAXTEPEC, Mexico (AP) -Bishops of the Episcopal Church today open formal discussions on the dominant issue of their conference here: should women be ordained priests. Straw polls have shown that a majority of the 150 bishops at:ending the meeting of the House of Bishops favor permitting women to be priests. There are 220 bishops in the church. But the bishops cannot make a final ruling. Their decision would have to be confirmed by the General Convention, the church's policy-making body, of which the bishops form the upper house. The House of Bishops could, however, call a special session of the General Convention . for 1975, a year earlier than the next regular session. Six bishops have introduced resolutions calling for that. The long-simmering question of women's -ordination became a major issue in the 3.2-millio: member Episcopal Church when 11 women deacons received unauthorized ordinations in DMIa'lDTnt.40 I n c f T,,Tu tQ uoyant optimism that has elped make her father, Walter ronkitc, the longest-lasting an- lior man in television network ews.

They parted after two years -- "we still like each other, but not as married people." Cathy had tried acting in school, liked it enough to try ? or a career in New York. All she could find was work in a student film and summer stock. Last fall a friend, Tom Laughlin, offered her a small part in his "The Trial of Billy Jack." She decided at the movie's Tucson, Ariz., location to try for a Hollywood career. So far her only role has been in a segment of "The Waltons," which will appear in November.

(AP) -Actor Karl Maiden, a friend, classmate and fellow steelworker of Charles 0. Finley, threw out the first ball in the third game of the World Series Tuesday night.

Alas, the show has no more luck in interviewing Agnew than CBS News, which dispatched a reporter last week to attempt talking with him on the first anniversary of his resignation as vice president and plea of no contest to one count of income tax evasion. All ABC gets out of him is a sardonic, "To what do I owe the honor of this visit?" But the segment is interesting, if only as a curiosity piece that show.s Agnew in private life and in stoic, solitary silence when the By JAY SHARBUTT NEW YORK (AP) -- T h e U.S. is a long way from adopting the metric system of measr urement, but a major soft drink company is planning a radip- ''TV campaign it hopes^ will make consumers say, "Take : me to your liter." · ' The firm, the Seven-Up Co. of St. Louis, Mo., says it plans to . begin its broadcast and print ^advertising campaigns for liter and half-liter bottles of its product in 1975. '. The company apparently is ft the first soft drink producer in ;the U.S. to take the metric ,'Step, according to officials at "the National Soft Drink Association and the Glass Container ^Manufacturers' Institute, two 'major trade groups. ' And the step will be limitcc t first. · The radio-TV ads extolling Seven-Up as the "leader in the liter" won't be the only kind se . loose, says Lee Larkin, the company's director of publii . relations. · He says they'll just be om part of an overall carnpaigr ; urging consumers to simply buy the drink, be it bottled by the liter or in traditiona unces. and that the liter hase-in will be gradual. Larkin says bottled Seven-Up jrimarily is sold in units of 16 and 32 ounces. A half-liter will vork out to 16.91 ounces and he liter to 33.82 ounces, he says, but he doubts there'll be a slight price rise to reflect the extra sip provided liter-lovers. There are several reasons for ;iving the new measurement a ;ryout, says Larkin: "One is :hat we want to be the first to do it. The next is that it's a logical system of measurement. "And three, it's going to come sooner or later." Later is more probable, says William Sadd, president of the glass container association: "It's going to happen . .. but there's been no industry-wide move that I know of for the soft drink industry to go metric at this time." No legislation is pending in Congress to. make metric mandatory. If that ever happened, a call for a shot of booze -usually \Vi ounces -- m i g h t someday come out in a "Gun- smoke" episode as: "Say, Miss Kitty, give me 45 milliliters of red-eye." cameras are rolling. The show also has longer segments on world hunger and White House photographer David Kennerly, among other subjects. Estate BY JAMES R.

Basically, there are three types of listing agreements and your rights and obligations vary with each type, let's discuss f he "Open listing" today As the name Implies, it is open to everyone. You agree to pay a Realtor's commission if, end only if, he lefls (he property. But you reserve the right to have other Realtors or to sell the home yourself. It sounds good on paper--but, frankly, it's the most Ineffective arrangement to make if you REALLY want to sell your home in a reasonable time and expect the Real tor's foil expenditure of time and advertising money. At any juncture he can lose the sale to another Realtor or to (he owner himself.

Illinois Plates Contract Goes To State Firm SPRINGFIELD, 111. (AP) -The contract for making 1976 license plates for the state of Illinois has been awarded to an Arkansas firm once headed by a man who pleaded guilty to bribing a state official to get the contract for 1970 and 1971. James W. Stevens, an assistant state purchasing agent, said Monday a letter was being prepared to inform the Metal Stamping Corp. of Conway, Ark. it won the contract. Metal Stamping submitted a bid of $6.5 million to make the red, white and blue plates. The second lowest bidder was Slructo Division of King-Seeley Thermos Co. of Freeport, which bid $7.8 million. "I don't think anyone could argue with saving $1.3 million," Stevenson said. He said a check satisfied II- iinois officials the bid had not involved former Metal Stamping president J. Patrick Stollz. Stoltz pleaded guilty earlier this year to charges he bribed former Illinois Secretary of State Paul Powell with $80,000 to 'get the 1970 and 1971 state license plate contracts, Stoltz was fined $30,000 and was ordered to pay $80,000 to the state of Illinois as restitution. It was the third consecutive year Metal Stamping has won the contract by submitting a bid lower than that of the Freeport firm.
