Bogart played the definitive Sam Spade sup ported superbly by Mary Astor Sydney Greenstreet and Peter Lorre now Columbia pictures is making the Black Bird or the maltese Falcon flies again but it is not quite the same George Segal is Sam Spade or in contemporary san Francisco he inherits his fathers private Eye business along with the longtime office Secretary Effie the role is again being played 33 years later by Lee Patrick another Holdover from the 1941 cast is Elisha Cookjr but this int a remake of the maltese falcon1 said director writer David Giler who is making his own directorial debut its More of a comedy treatment of the same material it is a dream assignment for actor Segal and he is enjoying himself immensely when interviewed he had just finished a bedroom scene with the sultry leading lady Stephane audran in his dressing room he offered to Segal As Spade or a War photo share a Supply of Champagne and caviar with his visitor in treating myself Segal said exuberantly after

As the head of a Kansas family which has moved to Rural Minnesota in the 1870s to Start life anew tonight Effort dealing with that Start is a simple straightforward and unexciting yarn emphasizing All of the positive Virtues of Rural America hard work honesty Atten dance at Church and neighbourly ways it centers on How an impoverished Charles Ingalls Landon begins from scratch first building a Home for his wife and three daughters and then striking a cashless bargain with a hard hearted local merchant to buy seed and a plow for the Ingalls farm the show is beautifully photographed and Landon costar Karen Grassle and their col leagues All turn in sympathetic Cowkey performances but several things seem wrong with this Effort the Ingalls family appears neat too Well scrubbed to convince me they live and work on a farm where one does get dirty at times arid the show seems excessively virtuous almost As if the producers rounded up a 19th Century version of apples Way and told the cast now Dang it get out there and be decent Petrocelli starring Barry Newman As a pinstriped big City lawyer who sets up his Shingle in a southwestern town called san remo has a different kind of problem that eventually does it in the first 30 minutes Are fairly Lively and involve a murder a frightened millionaires wife charged with the murder and the arrest of Petrocelli wife Susan Howard on trumped up prostitution charges the millionaire is properly Power mad and evil and the local Lawman who makes the prostitution arrest appropriately corrupt and sinister but the plot thins later on newmans performance is wholly believable despite the feeble Chance the script gives him and the other mummers Are equally Good but if tonight show is any indication Perry Mason is still with us even if under a new name and in a new setting the Only difference is that Petrocelli got in a fistfight in the show Perry would never do that premiere toil get life around us get Christie love sch pts capsule views

constitutional doctrine of separa Tion of state and Church the Tennessee legislature passed the ballyhooed Bill in 1973 specifying that All biology textbooks in the states Public schools must give equal consideration to All theories of creation of Man Cantrell ruled that the legislature attempted to place the biblical account of mans creation and the world above other theories by so doing he

Steele president of a citizens group called americans United for the separation of Church and state it was not immediately known if the state would Appeal the ruling Cantrell held that to make textbooks include All theories of mans creation would be impossible he said full compliance with the Law would result in a significant body of scientific thought and knowledge being effectively excluded from Basic school texts in Light of the administrative impossibility of including All other theories Cantrell said it seems to the court that the general Assembly by this provision is saying
