Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 4, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 6-THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD Wtdntiday, 4, 1974 Starred on TV for eight years Ex-actor tries career as author By DICK KLEINER HOLLYWOOD (NBA) From 1958 to 1966, Paul Petersen was America's best tten ager. As the son on The Donna Reed Show, he was invited into America's living room every week, and given a place in the nation's collective heart. But that doesn't help much after the show is cancelled. And Paul Petersen had some tough years. Now, at 29, he's back but not as an actor. Petersen was part of the Donna Reed family for eight profitable years. He was 12 when it all began and 20 when they dropped the show, in '66. He grew up on the show, changed from a boy to a man while playing a youth. REMAINED CLOSE He says he's remained close to Miss Reed ever since, and Carl Betz and Shelley Fabares (who played his father and too. "Donna cried with me when things weren't going so he says. Until he started on the show, Paul Petersen had been planning on a career as an architectural engineer. He was a bright child, particular- ly so in arithmetic. He had his future clearly mapped out in his alert young mind. He had done a little acting and modelling, mostly at the behest of his family, and en- joyed it and recognized that it was a profitable venture. "But I had never thought of making that my he says. "I knew what I was go- SPECIAL GUEST BREAKFAST MEETING Saturday Morning, Dec. 7 9 a.m. EL RANCHO MOTOR HOTEL PRICE or come hear speaker at 10 a.m. FATHER CLAIRE WATRIN O.S.B.

When he was offered The Donna Reed Show role, the family conferred and accepted. It was, they thought, just another few weeks of work. "Nobody thought that it would be a career in he says. A few years later somewhere around 14 or 15, as he remembers it he chang- ed his life goal. "Things were going well as an he said, "and I was enjoying it. I decided that I would be an actor, that I would learn my craft and work hard at it." DREAM ABANDONED So the dream of becoming an architectural engineer was abandoned in favor of the path of least resistance. It seemed, at the time, to be a sensible decision. As one of the stars of one of the top rated TV shows, it seemed logical that his career and his success were both assured. "Then I was he says, "and suddenly there was nothing. The show was cancelled. I did a few parts in a few movies, but, year by year, the work slipped." When he was 21, the trust fund that his parents had been investing in, according to California law, came to him "What a time that was1" he says. He took his money, which was considerable. He rented a limousine and an airplane, to take his father on a big trip to Las Vegas. "I took and placed my TV highlights WEDNESDAY VARIETY RETURN: Toay Orlando and Dawn, p.m., Ch. 9.

He figures he squandered million by the time he was 24. He gradually went broke. He grew a beard, a mustache, long hair. He took to going to parties he was still invited to parties so he could eat the hors d'oeuvres. That was what he lived on He didn't work any more. But he went to parties, to eat. At one party, he met a man named David Oliphant, who wondered why everybody seemed to know the bearded young man. Petersen ex- plained, "I am the walking dead. They all know that I am what they are afraid they may become some day." Oliphant took an interest in him. They talked about writing, and Oliphant took Petersen back East with him, so he could write. But there was one more adventure, in Hollywood, before he went East He drove his car over a cliff. He walked away from the wreckage with to his name, all that remained of his fortune It was a symbolic gesture, at best. ENCOURAGED WRITING Oliphant took care of him and encouraged his writing. Petersen, who had become a crack driver, wrote a book called "High Performance Driving." And then Simon Schuster, the major publishing firm, heard about him and his writing and asked him to create a character and write a series of paperback novels Petersen dreamed up "The alias Eric Saveman, a Bond type operator who does everything and does it all well.
