Saturday, Sopl.mklT It, 1972 THE irTHBHIDO! HWAID Archie Bunker show star in demand HOLLYWOOD (AP) Among the benefits of star- dom alter a long labor In ob- scurity is that parts are sud- denly offered that an actor could only daydream about before. That's what happened to Carroll O'Connor, who gained fame as Archie Bunker on CBS's All In the Family. He is in demand. "That's the great plus-pro- said O'Connor. I want to work in the five months I'm off from the show I can do it. "fn the next two or three years I can say what I want to do and I can do it. "If I went to a studio and said I'd like to do a picture I can do that and star in it. It's nice to call the shots. I can do that for only a limited ime. That kind of box office appeal doesn't last foreve.-." While It lasts O'Connor wants to mate the most of it. In February he will tape a So-minute special for CBS consisting ot three one-act plays, one dramatic, one mu- sical, one comedy. The show is tentatively titled It's a Man's World-Or Is It? In March ho will portray Sam- uel Adams while Eric Se- vcreld interviews him about events leading to the Ameri- can Revolution. Alter that, he topes to make a movie in Eu- rope. In fact, he said he would make it only if. it is filmed in Europe. But first up, he plays the president of the United Slates.

(AP) The most populous death row in the United Stales is slowly going out of existence, leaving many of its 104 former residents with a kind of free- dom they haven't felt in years. I still lind myself bouncing away on the balls of my feet said Gregory Pow- ell, 39, who moved Into San Quenlin's general prison popu- lalion n month ago after nine years on death row. "Now there's a definite hope in life, a definite said Bowersox, 35, who is working in the prison account- ing office and has already started taking courses toward a college degree. 'It was a bleak environment up on the row, an environment of despair leading nowhere ex- cept maybe to he said Friday. "Some people go in- I sane, some commit suicide and the others adjust." All but 17 of the death row prisoners have been about 50 staying at San Quentin and the remainder scattering to ether slate prisons. Spokesman Joseph O'Brien said the last 17 men will be off the row in 10 days. MIX WITH OTHEIIS Most who remained here have been mixed into the gen- eral prison population.

"It felt he said Tarson's friendly pets treated as family members tfou're under such tight secur-' y on the row. One or two offi- srs go with you everywhere nd nobody says anything to ou." Jackson, Powell and Bow- rsox were part of the first roup of formerly condemned ien to be interviewed by re- wrlers. Jackson was convicted raping and strangling a Powell of killing a no- ceman and Bowersox of idl- ing a policeman. Bowersox said he was the irst man on death row to hear of the California Supreme Court's decision last Feb. 18 outlawing the death penalty.

GRASSHOPPER BUILDUP Dr. Smith has been one several government scientist warning for the last three yeai of a grasshopper build-up. Bi poor grasshopper-breeding we. ther a wet growing season has prevented this. "Farmers thus have built u a false sense of security becaus the weather has acted natural he said. Starting next spring, the outbreaks will become ser- ious if the weather favors the grasshoppers." Grasshoppers are the worst destroyers of grass, rangeland and cereal crops. "Seven grasshoppers per square yard over 10 acres eat as much as a he said. "They also chew the grass stems right down and leave the soli bare and subject to wind and water erosion."
