From where I sit, open-minded-ness

Author Of "One Man's Family" Also
Possesses High Skill With Skillet
By HAL BOYLE
NEW YORK. (AP) Carlton E. Morse is a pleasant, balding
man of 46 who bakes his own bread.
He also eats steak and potatoes for breakfast seven days a
weekand believes he makes the best apple pie In America.
"It's an apple pie with pears in it and a little dash of rum,"
Morse Is better known for his
skill at the typewriter, however,
than his skill with the skillet.
Since 1929 he has turned out 20,
000.000 words of radio drama.
His most durable breadwinner
has been "One Man's Family, a
weekly half-hour program he has
written, produced and directed
for 18 continuous years. Morse be
lieves this Is a record for this
type of dramatic serial.
The program tells the trials,
tribulations, and victories of an
American family Henry Bar
bour, a retired stockbroker, his
wife, Fanny, and their offspring.
It has gone on so long it makes
Abies lrisn nose ana "UKia-
noma" seem like one-night-stand
When I started there were
only seven characters," said
Morse. "Now there are 18 ac
tive characters, and I'm in the
! third generation of the family.
He is proud that six of the seven
I actors who appeared on the first
broadcast of the program still
: play their original roles. Mem
bers of the live cast have had a
total of '2 children during the 18
years. Morse and his wife, Pa
tricia, are childless.
"The program Is really an Ideal
ization of my husband's own fam
ily," said Mrs. Morse. "His fa
ther and mother are a wonderful
couple. They Just celebrated their
go'den wedding anniversary.
Morse rises every morning at
6:30 and cooks breakfast. By
i seven he is at his typewriter. He
Is swllt writer. By :30 he has
finished his stint for the day. It
takes him two mornings to write
the weekly program, and his
mythical family has grown so
large he needs a chart now to
keep the relatives atraight.
His listeners take the Barbour
family very seriously.
"Four years ago I killed off one
of the characters In an auto acci
dent," Morse said, "since death
must come to every family. But
hundreds of people wrote in and
protested. Some said they would
never listen to the program
Wife Best Critic
Since then he has kept his
characters alive and talking.
They grow older as ordinary peo
ple do. and one of his biggest
problems came when all his char
acters were married.
There was a little slump
there." he admitted, "until the
children grew up, and created
some new love Interest.
"My wife is the best critic of
my writing. She can tell when
I'm off the track better than any
body." In his spare time Morse col
lects old silver and vintage wines.
Food Is his hobby. When he and
his wife came here to prepare
"One Man's Family" for televi
sion presentation this fall, they
brought along their own pots and

"Maybe ff there's an occasion big
enough I'd like to open one to
celebrate. But the other one I
don't think I'd ever want to
"But they're evaporating,"
smiled Mrs. Morse.
"Yes," sighed her husband.
