CINCINNATI (AP) Television will undergo a "visible, definable" change next season in response to a suggestion by the United States Federal Com- munications Commission, says Thomas Swaflord, vice president of Columbia Broad- casting System He was referring to amendments in the National Association of Braodcasters code to eliminate violence and sex from 7 to 9 p.m. broadcast periods. "You won't have Mannix or Kojak" in those periods, said Swafford. He said many of the sub- jects for All in the Family such as "impotency and menopause" will not be. paralleled next year if the program remains in the same slot. Gleason is sued by wife FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) Jackie Gleason's wife sued him yesterday, seeking judicial relief from what her lawyer called an attempt "to crush the plaintiff in a vice of economic pressure." Mrs. Gleason contended hi her suit that although her hus- band is worth at least million, he has given her only since Dec. 1. The suit said that Gleason has ordered all of his wife's charge accounts discontinued, as well as her country club membership. The comedian sued his wife for divorce in July, but the case was frozen after Gore Newspapers contested the legality of banning the public from the divorce proceedings.

Joan Waterfield's Entertainment eye TV award shows becoming a bore And the winner is Enter then entertainment's silly season with the networks aflood with "award" shows. And it could be said that these affairs are so ludicrous and farcical that they offer at least a modicum of fun. Alas most, if not all, inflict on the viewer only terminal boredom. Presented in prime time stretching often to a three hour span the Grammys, Golden Globes, Oscars, Em- mys, Georgies, Tonys are dol- ed out with the usual trap- pings of the sealed envelope routine, the thank you speeches and crescendos of applause. Now aired in such numbers it can only be anticipated that the final folly will be an awards show for the best awards show. Offering an "ennui" perhaps? Of course by that time some of the more asinine shows will have been laughed or lacerated off the air. Yet it is ironic that audiences will continue to find a horrid fascination in observ- ing the talented behaving foolishly. Mush mouthed and clay footed the idols topple. In past years the television presentation of Broadway's Antoinette Perry awards has been a model of brisk show- manship. Indeed the 1974 edi- tion averaged a 25.3 rating and a 11 share, the highest rating yet for the Tony telecast. Yet even the star studded audience present in the Schubert Theatre got a bit im- patient when producer Robert Nemiroff, accepting for "Raisin" got so long winded in thanking everybody that the audience began applauding in an attempt to shut him up. Last Saturday's Entertain- ment Hall of Fame induction- was presented with the aura of respect and restraint worthy of the funeral parlour. Which was perhaps inevitable since hail of the inductees had passed to their final reward. There were good moments though, even if Anthony Newley would sing Cole Porter. George Burns was on hand to accept for the late Jack Benny, Piatagorsky, the cellist delighted with his "chock" at the expense of Stravinsky and Fred Astaire nipped down the inevitable staircase with the grace that belies his over seventy years. Despite these "jewels" there was an air of flatness and little to divert the viewer's attention from the routine presentation procedure. And playing against the massive if oppressive "good taste" was an unforgiveable slug of blurbs that served only to jar the viewer out of a low keyed bemusement. The "Gaffe of the Year" could certainly have been won by Herb Whittaker, theatre critic for the Toronto Globe and Mail. At the third annual Chalmers award for the best play of the year (unfortunate- ly not telecast; it must have been hilarious) Whittaker an- nounced Rick Salutin the winner for the Theatre Passe Muraille's collectively created 1837: The Farmers Revolt. After an abrasive accep- tance by Salutin, Whittaker had to recover the prize money which was intended for James Reaney for Part II of his Donnelly's trilogy. Believe it or not the awards fever at one time hit the local stage scene. In 1969 a Lethbridge Theatre Award was conceived; presumably a satisfactory panel'could be found to view and evaluate all productions staged. Obviously the scheme was unworkable since it turned out to be a one shot affair. And here it might not come amiss to note that local productions and touring companies receive short com- mons in evaluation of their work since only the print medium has accepted any responsibility in providing that "audience of the critic. Local radio and televi- sion have made no move in this direction. They could and should. Back to awards and this week the Grammys will use up 90-minutes of prime lime Sunday evening. But Tuesday brings the ab- solute in nonsense with the People's Choice Awards. Now what do the winners receive? A For heaven's sake, these are based on a random sampl- ing of the American public. Since such balloting can only produce the lowest com- mon denominator a meagre carbon copy of other televi- Commonwealth to see more of Prince LONDON (Reu.ter) Prince Charles said Thursday that when he finishes his ser- vice in the Royal next hopes to pay more frequent visits to Commonwealth countries. "It will obviously be easier to travel more extensively and since I happen to enjoy travelling and exploring Com- monwealth countries, I look forward to retaining my youth for as long as possible so that I can survive the sheer mileage involved." The 26-year-old heir to the throne was answering questions in the March issue of the Commonwealth Press Union magazine. "It always fascinates me how well Commonwealth rela- tionships are spite of the stresses and strains brought about by governments disagreeing with each other or finding themselves diametrically op- posed over certain issues.. "The unique and fundamen- tal strength of the Com- monwealth lies in the fact that it is an association of men and women of all kinds united for reasons of mutual benefit, satisfaction, education and historic sentimentality." British actor in hospital LONDON British actor Peter O'Toole has been admitted to a North London hospital, hospital officials said Thursday. They said O'Toole, 40, is listed in satisfactory con- dition, but declined to com- ment on a report that physicians could not deter- mine what was wrong. O'Toole is scheduled to play Judas Iscariot in a million British television special entitled The Life of Jesus Christ. THIS WEEKEND at the LEGION Friday Cabaret MEMBERS AND INVITED QUESTS EX-POLICE GUILTY HONG KONG (CP) For- mer police chief superinten- dent Peter Godber was sentenced to four years im- prisonment Tuesday after be- ing found guilty of conspiracy and corruption, Agence France-Presse reports. Godber was accused of con- spiring with another former police officer to receive about as a reward for secur- ing an appointment in March, 1971. siun presentation can be an- ticipated. So it's on to the Oscars and the release of nominations marks 1974 as a meagre movie year. Since Frances Ford Coppola hit the jackpot with The God- father it seems unlikely that his superior Part Two will take the honors. Which leaves his The Conversation as the dark horse and Chinatown winning. Best actor may by senti- ment go to Art Carney but the toss up should be between Jack Nicholson for Chinatown and Dustin Hoffman for Len- ny. It looks like a two way tangle for best actress too; between Ellen Burstyn (Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore) and the always under rated Gena Rowlands a woman Under The Personal disappointment is that The Apprenticeship of Duddy Kravitz has garnered only a writing nomination. But come April 8 we'll join the millions watching, hoping that this year's show will be more coherent and palatable for the home viewer.
