He's happy in his work By DICK KLEINER HOLLYWOOD It's gotten so that, to be a TV detective, you have Lo have some sort of handicap. Ironside is crippled, Longstreol is blind. Cannon is fat.

The Tat. the porLly, lite stylishly stout guys of the world Jin ve a lease oit life. Conrad is making the large waist a bulge of distinc- tion. He's becoming a symbol of b r a v e r y, adventure, even sexiness and all that with a profile Lbat resembles a grape- fruit. Naturally, he wasn't always bulky.

"But the (rouble with putting on weight is thai the more you put on. tin? more you have Lo lose. Fret ty soon. it's too hue." Nowadays, ho varies be- 170 and 270. which is a lot of varying. He maintains several wardrolws. to fit his several girths. When Cannon was sold to CBS. he was at his peak 270. which is a nice round figure. He lost 40 pounds before the filming started, and lie says he felt good at 230. But since the show started, he has1 put 20 pounds back. "I thought that doing tlie says, ''would be such hard work that I'd lose weight. But I'm cnjoyinp it so much that I'm gaining instead of los- inff."
