DIFF'RENT CHARACTER

By WILLIAM C. TROTT, United Press International

'Diff'rent Strokes' will feature a new character this fall, former Miss America Mary Ann Mobley, and a taller Gary Coleman.

Mobley replaces Dixie Carter as Conrad Bain's wife in a move that won't be acknowledged in the show. 'There will just be a new Maggie,' Bain said. There also will be a new Coleman. 'He has been growing since his kidney transplant last November,' Bain said. 'He's already wearing a larger size. He looks absolutely wonderful. Everyone is so excited he's OK, after all the time he had to work with a bad kidney, that nobody seems thwarted about the show going up against 'Dallas' head-on.'
