He didn't. He was wearing ordinary clothes and nothing seemed to be bothering him. There were a few things, however Peter Falk wanted to get off his chest but you could hardly say he was bothered by them. Take the matter of his rain- coat. There have been many wild and irresponsible stories printed about his raincoat by people who don't know the in- side story of Columbo's cherished garment. It's high time the record was set straight, once and for all. It's his own coat you see every week. No stand-in rain- coat. No double. No Hollywood chicanery or special effects raincoats. That's the genuine article. "I still use my own raincoat out Falk says. "I wore it before the series started and I use it ail the time. It's getting a little threadbare in spots and I have to be very careful about He does admit that there are a few doubles around the premises of his hit NBC show. But they are only used in rehearsals and you have his word of honor as an actor and a gentleman that they are never used on camera. So much for that nasty rumor. There also has been much reported in certain news- papers and magazines to the effect that Falk is unhappy with his series and wants out: PETER FALK These have been circulated for several years. He says that these yarns, too, are basically untrue. "My he says, "was not with the show itself. I still like Columbo, both the character and the program. No, I'm happy. What I wasn't happy with was the studio's determination to make the episodes all two hours long." It is his feeling that two hours is a long time for a TV show and only particularly ex- citing scripts should be written that length. He feels most of them are only worth 90 minutes. That's been the bone of contention between him and his employers. "But I must he says, "that this year's scripts have been super. We've had a cou- ple the cruise one, the one with Oskar Werner which were excellent. As long as we can keep getting strong scripts I'll be very happy." You might think that watching Columbo, every few Sunday evenings, would be a must for the entire Falk family. But it isn't. In fact, Peter says, his oldest child Jackie is 8 has never seen him in Columbo. Not only that, she's never seen him act in anything. The closest she came was Glue for picture tubes Cod skins have TV role PORT SAXON, N.S. (CP) Before you buy your next color televisidn set it might be wise to check on cod landings on the Atlantic coast. And if you buy a set now, the 25 to 30 per cent decline in the cod catch may be responsible for the slightly higher price tag. .Cod skins, you see, are a vital ingredient in that picture tube. The skins are processed into glue used in the chemical mil- ling process to produce color television picture tubes. A photographic image is projected upon a thin sheet of stainless steel which is coated with a layer of fish glue. Where the light shines through, the glue is sensitized. The sheet is then placed in an acid bath and the acid eats away the area where the glue has been sensitized. The fin. ished product is called a "shadow mask" with about liny holes. The production of fish glue provides steady employment around the clock at a former fish cannery here. Six years ago, when color television came into its own, the Kenny and Ross factory dropped canning and Irish moss-collecting and turned to fish skin glue. Now, the plant ships glue to the United States, England, West Germany, Norway, Tai- wan and Puerto Rico where color television tubes are made. Currently, the plant is fac- ing some difficulty in meeting its orders because of a slump in cod by about 30 per cent. "The cod landings alone, which are our chief supply, are down 25 to 30 per cent which means a lot less raw says Bob Stod- dard, plant manager. But no layoffs are contemplated and the future appears secure. "How can we asks Robert E. Norland, president of the company. "We offer good quality and good service and we bend over backwards to meet the needs of our customers." It is one of the few plants along the coast which has managed to sustain itself without any form of govern- ment assistance, and at the same time has generated employment for other processing plants through its fish skin purchases. As much as 10 tons of skins can be processed daily at the plant. Waste is recycled into fish meal used for poultry feed. Those tiny holes in the screen, which Mr. Stod- dard says would be impossible for a machine to form, provide secure employment for 19 people at the south shore plant.

She was brought backstage to meet him and happened to be watching when there was a scene in which Peter was doused with a bucket of water. She was terribly upset by that incident and, since then, her parents have carefully shielded her from seeing her father work. She's also confused by the fact that her father is famous. When she's with him and he's stopped by fans -asking for autographs she doesn't know what to make of the whole scene. At the moment, Falk is perhaps more excited about his latest movie than he is over anything else in his life. He is part of John Cassavetes' exciting film, "A Woman Under the which is certain to be heard from at Academy Award time. His own performance is smashing and rates a possible nomination, but his co-star, Gena Rowlands (Mrs. Cassavetes) is almost a shoo- in to win the Oscar as best actress. And Falk concurs. "Gen'a's Falk says, "is one of a handful of great performances I've seen. She is a marvelously inventive actress." The film, he explains, is about women and what they do especially what they do when they have nothing to do. He says the thesis of the film does not apply in his own 'iome because his wife, Alyce, has something to do. SONNY BONO Sonny sues Cher for million LOS ANGELES (Reuter) Singer Sonny Bono has filed a million damage suit against his estranged wife Cher and her companion of re- cent months, record producer David Geffen, claiming they had conspired to riestroy "Sonny and Cher's business." It was the latest legal shot in the bitter fight between the two former stars of the successful television show, The Sonny and Cher Comedy Hour. A year'ago Cher, 29, charg- ed that her husband and his lawyer had tricked her into "involuntary servitude" by taking advantage of her lack of business knowledge in the signing of contracts. In his suit, Sonny charged that Cher and Geffen, by allegedly breaking up the "Sonny and Cher" team, had hurt his ability to get work in show business.

CPHoMsU National Film Day observed WASHINGTON (AP) President Ford said "it is a great pleasure to recognize the motion picture industry and its rich contribution to our national life" on the second annual National Film Day in (lie United States.
