The new television season is greeted, promotionally, with a flourish of trumpets. In short order that will have become a linking cymbal and the viewer will have sailed past the "best" of this and that to the eternal compromise of what will be simply This is the not necessarily the movie year. Movies, mind you, right off the big screen. Yes, what you saw last year at your local movie house is right there in your own home, lopped, chopped and lousy with commercials.

FRONTIER DINING ROOM For your dancing and listening pleasure "HARRY BAILEY" at the Keyboard and Organ 7-5701 1L The major competition for the "biggies" is with the three American networks, the real tangle between ABC and NBC. Thus ABC with The Poseidon Adventure, Fiddler on the Roof, The Last Picture Show grabbing for ratings against the NBC coup of The Godfather. Just great! Or is it? Con- sider that ABC went to four million dollars to snag The Poseidon Adventure, NBC went to over six million for "Godfather." Isn't there something obscene in 10 million dollars to put two movies on television. Just consider what could be done with that money to lift the tedium out of the medium. Just consider the writers with works unbought and un- sought, the actors un- employed, the technical crews unwanted, the comment on the human condition unheard. -There will, of course, be some shining lights to brighten the darkness of a medium sliding fast into the instant re play syndrome. The light of the occasional flicker even in "made for TV" movies (last year's Jane Pittman, Private Lovick and That Certain Summer were encouraging But creativity at work in it's own particular medium (television) has little future. Art and the artist cannot sur- vive the idiocy of ratings and "the big Where most of television is, of course, is with the regular weekly feature. And this is the time of the pilot, where the potential series can get its first public appraisal. Lucas Tanner with the im- mensely attractive David Hartman may make it. Mainly because of Hartman. Here he is a high school English teacher of the jeans and sneakers variety, briefly a pitcher in the major leagues with a wife and child killed in a car crash. Sheer soap opera, but the warmth of Hartman, the believability of the supporting actors especially young Kathleen Quintan who im- pressed as the young student who turns to teacher for help, may allow it to survive. Another Room 222 but from the initial writing a possibility for wider scope and pretty pleasant viewing. There's some amusement to be found in pilots in that everything is laid on the viewer in the opening stanza. Movin' On offers a lawyer (Frank Converse) who has opted out (post Vietnam) hitching up with a gypsy trucker, the estimable Claude Akins. It's Route 66 again and all points ea'st and west for the pair. What lifted this one out of what could be a standard, and all too often maudlin, man to man relationship is the ac- tion stuff of the big rig itself. The pilot offered the brakeless truck chasing a camper down a hill that was tops for action. More of the same should satisfy. The amiable James Gamer has the Rockford Files this season. Gamer is true heir to Cary Grant with an easy laconic style which should coast happily with the light romance and some nice wit. He also has the happy faculty of relegating violence to a necessary make believe area Annual Corn Re THIS WEEKEND at the LEGION Gordon" Vimy GORDON" MEMBERS AND INVITED QUESTS ONLY Sept p.m. and concentrating on the relationship with the other players. You get the feeling that Garner will not win them all, but he shouldn't be a loser in what nicely bridges the hard hitting Kojak and the family group drama that has spunoff from the success of The Waltons. And more and more as the season roles. Planet of the Apes has the talking apes up- dated. Having exhausted the mainstream screen the turn is to. television for B-adventure film on a pretty simplistic level. David Janssen is Harry-0 (background, ex cop with a bullet lodged close to his spine) who private eyed it in a very respectable and slick pilot. The girls are in the cop shop now. Angie Dickenson is Police Woman, Teresa Graves is the karate chopping Christie Love and the ex- cellent Jessica Walter segued through an Ironside segment to pilot her portrayal of a police captain. The ethnic gig is rampant. Most interesting and possibly the most entertaining could be Chico and the Man with the very funny "chicano" Freddie Prinze and the fine actor Frank Albertson. All of this flooding over the border. How Canadian televi- sion will shape up is yet to be seen but even the worst will be no worse than the south of the border drivel and the home grown best is very very good indeed. So maybe money isn't everything. But that 10 million Poseidon Godfather bucks wouldn't hurt our own national product. Boy found in paper bag COLLINSVILLE, HI. (AP) Jeanine Connor said her 10- year-old was "always finding things" but that she was "stunned" when he poured out of a paper bag and the floor of the family home. "It was unbelievable. I didn't move for more than a Mrs. Connor said Wednesday as the Illinois State Police cited her son for his honesty and gave him a bicycle. Jimmy Connor had returned home Aug. 27 from registering for grade school when he was told by his mother to pick up some trash lying in a ditch on the side of their house. "Mom, we're rich, we're the boy said as he dumped the contents of the bag on the living room floor. Inside were 13 cellophane- wrapped packages of each. singer may lose voice LONDON (Reuter) British rock star Gary Glitter faces a major throat opera- tion which may change dramatically the voice that has sold of records to teen age fans. The 30-year-old enter- tainer's manager Mike Leander, said Thursday: "We have been warned that the operation may change Gary's voice, or he might never sing again." The operation, to take place later this month, will be to remove inflamed and infected tissues in the throat. The operation is considered dangerous for adults. Throat trouble has plagued Glitter for two years, causing him to cancel many appearances recently. Date set for Shaw Festival NIAGARA-ON-THE-LAKE Ont.
