Weaver suited for role as McCloud By JERRY BUCK LOS ANGELES (AP) Sam McCloud is no rube. His story is the classic one of the country boy who outfoxes the city slickers. Weaver, who plays the title role in NBC's McCloud, fits that mould, too. Against the odds, he chucked a role in Gunsmoke in 1964, endured two so so series, then scored heavily with McCloud. He is much in demand for TV movies and variety shows. Last year, he took on the establishment of the Screen Actors Guild and won as a maverick candidate for president. Weaver now is guiding the guild's negotiations with the producers for a new contract. There is fear the actors will strike if their demand for higher residuals for reruns is not met. Time has mellowed Weaver's feelings about Chester Good, the gimpy bumpkin on Gunsmoke. His screechy drawl of "Mis-ter Dil-lon" was a television byword for seven years. "I don't think we'll ever get to the point where people won't remember said Weaver in his guild office. "I don't want them to forget the character. But I. think the industry no longer associates Dennis Weaver with Chester." Weaver followed Gunsmoke with Kentucky Jones. It lasted one season. He was soon back for three seasons of Gentle Ben, in which he played second fiddle to a 700-pound bear. SUCCESS AT LAST Finally' in 1969, Dennis Weaver became Sam McCloud. "It was the kind of role I was looking for when I quit Gunsmoke." After the two-hour movie pilot, the show went into the 1970-71 season as one of four series sharing a single weekly time slot. As the only survivor of that, it went into the NBC Wednesday Mystery Movie the following year. The next year the Mystery Movie was moved to Sundays. McCloud was Weaver's fourth the first in which he was the real star. "I don't think I'll ever get tired of the he said. "He's got a humorous side, a romantic side. He has deep feelings and cares about people's problems. "It's a classic tale of a fish out of water. A guy from one environment trying to do his thing in another. He's not only the hero and wins in the end he's the underdog. He has to fight the bad guy and his chief. Every successful series without question has that going for it a relationship between the regulars." Weaver, a native of Joplin, Mo., and a star athlete in college, brings his vegetarian lunch to work in a brown paper bag. He is married to his college sweetheart, Geraldine Stowell, and they have three sons, Rick, Rob and Rustin. BECOMES GUILD CHIEF Weaver had not been active in the Screen Actor's Guild until he was elected to the board of directors in 1971. Last November he took on incumbent president John Gavin and beat him. One of the first things he did was to revamp the rules so that more actors could become involved. Weaver doesn't discount the possibility of an actor walkout after the contract expires at the end of June. But he said: "We don't think in those terms." Most of the contract negotiating problems have to do with reruns. The more reruns on the air the less the demand for actors to make original shows. At issue is the residuals paid by the networks for reruns. The actors want a bigger slice. The actors in any film now divide 50 per cent of what the networks pay for each rerun. The producers get the other 50 per cent. Top network pay is for a single rerun. "The thing that hurts Weaver said, "is that we not only get nothing for our performances, it prevents us from making new shows because the time is filled." Ruth Hazlitt named CBC medical reporter Ruth Worth Hazlitt, award winning newspaper and television journalist, has joined CBC television's national reporting staff in Toronto as a specialist in medicine and science, it was announced by CBC-TV chief news editor Malcolm Daigneault. A native of Timmins, Ont., Mrs. Hazlitt began her journalism career as a reporter with the Kirkland Lake Northern News. She became a court reporter for the Toronto Daily Star in '1954 and three years later, a general reporter. In 1959, she joined the Globe and Mail. While travelling in Russia and Eastern Europe with a group of graduate students in 1960, Mrs. Hazlitt visited Moscow and wrote about the Russian exhibition of wreckage from the downed U-2 spy plane piloted by Francis Gary Powers. In 1963, she was part of a three-reporter team investigating allegations that certain Ontario cabinet ministers had communications with gambling syndicates in Ontario and in the U.S. She was also assigned to write stories from Cuba and Santo Domingo on changes of government there. The same year, she wrote a series examining the court system and different kinds of legal aid, available in the U.S. and England. In her series, Mrs. .Hazlitt advocated that Ontario adopt a legal aid system which combined the best of the American and English models. Several months after her series appeared, the province appointed a commission to study legal aid and its recommendation resulted in adoption of an expanded legal aid system in Ontario. After a two-year assignment as Globe and Mail bureau chief in Vancouver, Mrs. Hazlitt returned to the Toronto Star as a reporter and wrote stories on slum landlords and mental hospitals. In 1966, she married Toronto Star parliamentary reporter Tom Hazlitt and moved to Ottawa, where their first child. Jessie, was born. During this time, Mrs. Hazlitt prepared commentaries for radio station CBO in Ottawa Dairy Queen North Only 516-13 SI.
