OCTOBER 1971 LISTINGS FOR SATURDAY, OCTOBER 16 TO FRIDAY, OCTOBER 22, 1971 Walt Disney World Contrasts and statistics By DICK KLEINER ORLANDO, Fla. CNEA1 Walt Disrey World, which open- ed near her recently, is a study in contrasts. The largest private employ- er in Flcrkla and a few light- ning rods. Moving more earth (nine mil- lion cubic yards) than anyone ever did before aiid three old railroad engines from Yucatan. It's all part and parcel of what will undoubtedly become the biggest resort area in Am- erica. Unlike California's Dis- neyland, where the majority of the visitors are local, the Flori- da equivalent will be what they're calling a "destination DISNEY WORLD CASTLES Central Florida now boasts answer to California's Disneyland Walt Disney World which opened earlier this month. Topmost spire above is functional as well as decorative it's a light- ning rod against frequent thunderstorms. people will come and stay for a few days. Tims the amusement park it- self, with its famous rides and its familiar castle, is only part the acres Walt Disney World encompasses. Tbsre will abb be hotels and lakes and golf courses and nighttime en- tertainment. The statistics on the place are staggering. When it opened it had 800 salaried and some hourly employees. If all goes according to plan, in three to five years that figure will be up to Tbe amount of mcney being spent is estimated at mil- lion, "but nc-bcdy really says retired Adm. Joseph Fow- ler, who is in charge of con- struction. (Disneyland, when it opened, had cost a compara- tively insignificant They've built miles of roads, brought in miles of power lines. constructed niiilos of sewers, made costumes, furnished meals, filled in some lakes and built others the whole thing is one of the mo-sh gigantic un- ever attempted. And yet litUe details are im- porta-nt, too. There is one lake reserved for water skiing, swimming and boating. It's fin- ished now and lovely, with new sandy beaches and clear water. The only prc'blem is that there is still one alligator an eight- footer and they haven't been able to get him out yet. Florida's wildlife and weath- er are continuing concerns. In- sects eye gnats, blind mos- quitoes, love bugs and other exotic creatures are prolific. They're working on ways of get- ting rid of them, and using only lights which are low in in- sect-attracting power. Snakes were a worry, but they haven't found1 as many as they expected. There is one story, perhaps about the Disney employees who cruised a swamp (some acre- age is being preserved in its natural state) and a water moccasin dropped into the torn the boat from a tree. One of the men crushed it with a shot gun and sank the boat in the process. Florida's weather is more ex- treme than California 's. Win- ters aire cold, so the beautiful tropical plantings must be pro- tecte-d by heating devices. And the summers are hot, humid and rainy, so everything is air- conditioned and there are many places for the visitors to get in out of the wet or the DISNEY Concluded of Page 4 Comic Paul Lynde TV's busiest man By DICK KLEINER HOLLYWOOD (NEA) With most of us, all Paul Lynde has to do is open his mouth and say simple sentence any sen- tence and vve start laughing. Maybe that's why he's prob- ably the world's champion va- riety show guest star. On tliis brand-new television season, Lynde has contracts with tliree of the four variety shows he'll do five appear- ances with Dean Martin, four with Glen Campbell and three with Carol Burnett. He'll only miss Flip Wilson's show. He'll also do his one-a-year appearance as Uncle Arthur on Bewitched. And, of course, he continues as a regular on the daytime hit, Hollywood Squares. All this keeps him so busy that he's turning down every- thing else. Almost every situa- tion comedy wants him, but je says no. An-d, IK says, when- ever he gees to Las Vegas and watches a show, they always pick up his tab and the-owner comes over and drapes a pin- striped arm over his shoulder and says, "When are you going to do a couple of weeks The answer is never. "I'm right for the Vegas he says. "All they want are jokes about sex and bathrooms. They don't under- stand anything smart." How animals cope with their environment Working on varying levels of sophistication, animal species have evolved different methods of coping with their environ- ment, according to each in- dividual's needs. CTV's popular nature series Untamed World studies the ways in which animals have adapted "tools" to aid them in Getting The Job Done, telecast- ing Sunday, Oct. 17, p.m. Tools may be defined zoologi- cally as objects w h i c h have been altered from their original stale to suit another purpose. Man has by-passed centuries of selective adaptation through Lhe use of tools and lie re- mains the only animal to use, keep and improve tools. The other creatures have had to make the best of those condi- tions which dictate their survi- val. The one ether thing he'll be doing this season is a pilot for a series. He's been doing a pilot a year for a long tune. He scys tie doesn't get elicited about them any more. He got overexcited about Prince of DaTkness, which is legendary' in Hollywood as be- ing perhaps the funniest pilot ever made. On it, Lynde play- ed a kind of second-string Slier- lock Holmes. This year, he'll do a remake of which was a fast Broadway flop some years ago, PAUL LYNDE, situation comedian par excellence, will make a total of 12 ap- pearances this television season on three of the four network variety showi, joining Dean Martin five times, Glen Campbell four times and Carol Burnett three times. but seems to intrigue TV there have been a few previcus attempts to make it into a se- ries. Lynde lives in a four-level hillside home, a thing of beauty. but he's thinking of selling it and building a one-level place on a lot lie owns. The reason Harry. Harry is Lynde's nine- year-aid Dandy Dinmont, and they are great buddies. But Harry is getting too old to negotiate all the stairs in the house. So Lynde may move.
