Dick van Dyke grinds out new shoiv CAREFREE, (APj North from Phoenix, I ho maca- dam road slrctches like a black ribbon across the rusty, sun- baked desert of M a r i c o p a County. A humpbacked mountain of house-sized boulders looms around a twist and rise in the road and almost in its shadow is an adobe building with a Span- ish lile roof. Behind it is what is ably a movie sound stage set down in the middle of tlie de- sert. This is the Craiiam Studios, where The New Dick van Dyke Show is being filmed for CliS. Van Dyke lives on a ranch in nearby Cave Creek, the east lias taken up temporary residence and the camera crew flies in for two days a week from Holly- wood. Van Dyke, displaying his jut- jawed grin during rehearsal, said: "I didn't want to leave to do another series and I kept look- ing at this studio and saying, there it sits. That's how it came about." In the show, van Dyke plays Dick Preslon, the host of a I People thought we were really Phoenix television talk show. In real life, Dick was the host in talk shows in Atlanta, New Or- Jc-ar.s and New York before get- ting his first series in 1901. Dick's wife is played by Hope Lange, who won two Emmys while on The Ghost and Mrs. Muir. Van Dyke said. "If any- one had asked me two years ago if I could have done it with- out Mary Tyler Moore 1 would have said no. Danny Thomas changed wives in mid-season, but with Mary it was different.

Producing a situation comedy in I he desert is a experi- ence and, clthoiiRh informal, it its own discipline. Dick said: "We quit at 4 o'clock on Fri- days ro everyone can the plane to Los Angeles. Ex- cept me. I don't gel to go home." He grinned broadly. Marty Brill, the moustachioed comedian who plays Dick's manager, maintains that the show is different from what would be turned out in Holly- wood. BEEN HAPPIER1 "We have absolute concentra- tion he said. "We're not going home down Cahuenga Boulevard, meeting all of our friends and agents and getting their opinions. If cny brass wants to pvt any pressure on us they have to come here." Dick's ranch is hidden in a valfey and he doesn't teil many people how to get there. But he docs get around plenty, explor- ing the desert for archaeological finds in his four-wheel-driven car. After quitting his first series. Dick went into the movies and appeared in nearly a dozen films, including Mary Poppins, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, The Comic, Divorce American Style and Cold Turkey. His hair is turning gray, his lean, tanned face has a few more lines, but the grin is as Infectious as ever. "Someone said life ends at Dick said. "I'm IS and I've never been happier. It seems I've been preparing all my lile 'for this."

(AI'i When slate trooper Ixjnnic Trice caught Richard Weather putting up a sign warning of radar units along a highway. Weather was charged with "erecting a false sign warning motorists of radar." That couldn't he, Weather argued. The sign was not false since radar unils regularly work the highway. Tricu couldn't argue with such logic. So he did some law research: and came up with a charge of erecting a sign which imitates i official traffic-control devices or j attempts to direct traffic move- ment. That charge stuck. Weather, 19, was given a sus- pended S50 [ine in traffic court. N'EH' SUBSCRIBER ARLINGTON', Tex. (AP) The Hoot Owl, Arlington's news- pajier for children written by children, has a r.ew Nixun.
