Julie, meanwhile, was busy n'llh last minute details, includ- iiij, writing thank-you notes for '.lie gifts piling up in the dining room of the Nixon's Fifth Avenue apartment. One gift the young couple is "especially pleased" with, said T.Trs. Van der Heuvel, is a brass pir.que from David's grandparents, former President and Mrs. Dwight D. Eisenhower.

Among those who will aireno !!ie wedding is Johnnie Mu- santc. who used to deliver vegetables to the Nixons when W.-y lived in Los Angeles eight years ago.

A new budget priced stocking for budget minded women in all walks of life! s By WILLIAM J. CONWAY Associated Press Writer CHICAGO (AP) -- Don McNeill got his last call for breakfast on radio today. He arranged to tape the final "Breakfast Club" show for broadcast: Dec. 27. McNeill and the show have been going for 35% years , and they have staked a claim to a record for a continual Monday-through-Friday daytime network feature. It lived to an extraordinary age on a plain diet of lively band music, homespun humor, songs, chats with folks from the , audience and a silent prayer," each in his own words, each ; in his own way." How did they do ilk "We try to have a programl ike a Sunday newspaper," McNeill said. "Something in it for everybody.'' Why is McNeill stepping out now at the age of 61? "Why not. quit when your ahead?" he counters. McNeill, born in Galena, 111., grew up in Sheboygan, Wis., and broke into radio while he was attending Marquette University. The show started on NBC as "The Pepper Pot." It switched later to ABC. The premiere was June 23, 1933. On the air then were James Melton, Stoopnagle & Bud, Jack Benny (Friday nights), Captain i Henry's Showboat, Arthur Trai cy, the Street Singer. ; On movie screens: Give Brook, Sally Eilers, Ernest Torrence. i On grovery shelves: A*pound of coffee, 37 cents. On "Breakfast Club's" twentieth anniversary a reporter , ' asked Master of Ceremonies j McNeill how it kept going. j "Each morning we have a new show," hr replied. "We ; have no script, it's a challenge [ each day." j That .he theorized, sustained i the i nterest of audience and . cast. I Among the old settlers on the ' program are Fran Allison, as ! Aunt Fanny, and Sam Cowling, ; a comic. Anita Bryant and Johnny Des- i ; mond did tours of duty as sing- j ers on the show. So did a girl who now is known as Rep. Charlotte Reid, R-Ill. i They all revolved about the ' towering (6 feet 2Vn inches) Mc- I Neill, a smiling fellow who sang' ; his own sogn of succcess in low key. j A week from today the show will drop out of a radio world ' where the balance has shifted toward tmusic and news. your ighhor Retirement Plan!
