TalkShow Hostess Announces Television Today >Firsf> Herself on Bv 'Guiding Light's" Carrier Pilot YORK CBS' "Guiding Light" troupers ever decided to wage war on soap opera critics, they'd have no trouble getting their own air force together. Thye'd just call on Don Stewart. Me plays a defense attorney on the daytime series, but once was a Strategic Air Com- mand B47 bomber pilot, lie also used to fly single-engine A! bombers for tile navy. A navy reserve officer, lie's currently rated a copilot on lour engine patrol aircraft based at Willow drove. Pa., where he's carried on the duty rosier as Lt. Cmdr. Don Slew- art, VS.XH. It isn't a typical background for someone who's a soap opera star, a night club singer and a veteran of summer stock, Broadway and off- Broadway musical comedies. A navy spokesman h e r e agrees, but says it's all true. Stewart, 37, born in Siaten Island. Y., and raised in Norfolk, says lie caught the flying bug early in life. "I'd always wanted to be a pilot." he said. "Even when I was a kid during World war 11. 1 wanted them to lower the age limit to eight, which for some reason they were reluctant to do." After college, he became an air force aviation cadet, graduated to B47s, and, in his spare time, sang at concerts for kicks. A professional who heard him convinced him to try singing full time. So when his active duly tour ended, Stewart came back to Fun City and. 'among other things, auditioned for a vocal coach. "She said she thought I had a potentially great operatic he said, laughing at the memory, "little did she know it would turn out to be soap opera." The actor, who sporadically appears in evening TV series and talk and says he'd like to it more often, shiited from the air force re- serve to the navy reserve in lie wanted to fly jets. But lie said only the navy had jet pilot slots open then. The navy Iransitioned him into the A4 Skyhawk and taught him the mystic arts of roaring off a carrier and land- ing on it again in one piece. 1 reallv loved carrier flv- director Iwtbered her.

Bill Tested The bus bill, passed by the last session of the legislature, is currently being tested by two Davenport church groups who have filed suit there. If the law is declared unconstitutional, Wiedersberg said, and the district has already purchased buses, the state would not be able to reimburse it the cost of the buses. 1 Hail Transferred said.
