Phyllis plays with symphonies! New role for comedienne SAM FRANCISCO (AP) Stand-up comedienne Phyllis Dlller is sitting down these days a concert grand piano, with an entire symphony orchestra to lend her support. The platinum, blonde with the raucous laugh and boisterous voice is appearing as guest pi- njlLst with noted symphonies during a country-wide tour. In an appearance in San Francisco, her latest stop, Miss DUler tossed off one-liners and mugged outrageously for the au- dience, sometimes peering at it through opera glasses, while awaiting cues from the orches- tra. When the cues came, the jokes slopped and Beethoven's Concerto No. 1 in C Major began. The" 55-year-olrI comedienne studied piano for 17 years, in- cluding tliree years al a Clii- cago conservatory. She said returning to the piano was strictly an accident.

Guild to curb re-runs By DICK KLEINER who has a TV set knows that the rerun season keeps getting long- er every year. What used to be called "summer reruns" now start showing up on the schedule In tlie spring aixl lasts into the fall. This makes lire pretty diill for viewers and it is economic- ally disastrous for actors. The Screen AcL-crs Guild is current- ly considering what can be done about it. Katliy Nolan, who has been on the SAG board for several years, puts on her best union manner when she talks about the problem. "They are polluting the air she says. "The public only gets about five moutlis oE new shows a year. And. for us actors, it's terrible. It means our working season on TV is only five months long." She says SAG is considering taking two steps, or, to be more precise about it. holding out for two changes in their contract with the producers during the next contract negotiations. First would be to demand so much money for residuals on reruns that it ivould no longer be economically feasible Tor the networks to use reruns. They would price their rerun services so high that it would be cheap- er to make new shows. That, at least, is the idea. Second would be to attempt to force a clause forbidding a show to be rerun within a year of its original airing. Again, this would mean fewer reruns, a consummation devoutly to be wished.
