e Eight HOPE (ARK.) StAft The venerable Kate learns a new sound By Stephen Ford NEW YORK - (NEA) Because Joe! Dorn produces records for such contemporary musical giants as Aretha Franklin and Roberta Flack, there were some bemused executives at Atlantic Records when he announced his Kate Smith #w and Dr. John 5 newest discovery: Kate ; Smith. : But wait. Dorn, a Levis• clad, bearded professional : who commutes daily from • Philadelphia to New York, • had more ideas which were : bound to send the Atlantic • execs up the wall. f Not only did he want to pro• duce a Kate Smith single for • the same company which ; packages such acts as the • Rolling Stones and Bette '•Midler, he wanted Kate : Smith to sing with members of Count Basic's orchestra, a trio of Motown-sound background singers, a handful of banjo pickers from the Philadelphia Mummers' marching band and New Orleans' high priest of Voodoo, Dr. John. And because Dorn is one of the country's most highly regarded producers, it all happened. The result is "Smile, Sniile, Smile," a single rising nicely on the Middle-of-the- Road charts. And Kate Smith, one of America's natural resources for 45 years, is overjoyed. What lured Miss Smith back to a studio mike after five years of semi-retirement was something as far removed from the record business as, well, as Kate Smith is from Dr. John: ice hockey. ' Dorn, it turns out, is a devout fan of the 1974 Stanley Cup winners, the Philadelphia Flyers. The Flyers start many home games with a recording of Kate Smith's famous "God Bless America" and Dorn, hearing this at each game, said he suddenly thought to himself one night, "Hey! She's a great singer! "I had just heard a song by • three writers who were looking for a producer," explained Dorn. "1 liked the song but knew it wasn't right for any of my artists." But it was right for Kate Smith. He contacted Miss Smith who, after hearing the song, politely flipped. "It was a song to take everyone out of the depression the country is now in, take their minds off politics and money," she said. "It was a morale booster likt something from World War II." But enticing Miss Smith into a studio was only one of magician Dora's tricks. The topper was his securing the second half of the strangest bill to ever share a studio — of Voodoo's "gris-gris", Dr. John. "I didn't know anything about Dr. John," Miss Smith said. "Everyone just laughed when I asked about his music but he told me he was a great fan of mine and I found him to be a charming young man. In fact, Joel is planning a second single for me in September and I hope to record with Dr. John again." Dorn said that in envisioning "Smile" he was looking for a "particular kind of sound, good-lime slrullin' music, like the Philadelphia Mummers do. I had talked with Dr. John some time ago and he told me he was crazy about the Mummers. So I figured his love for string bands and the kind of piano he plays would fit in just perfectly with Kate. And it did." Not awed by the voodoo man with his bright plumage and bizarre make-up, Miss Smith was knocked out by today's recording technology and Dorn's engineering wizardry. "When I think back to my first record in 1929 for RCA Victor, when 38 musicians and myself filled an old warehouse for three-hour sessions, four nights a week. I could faint," she said. "In those days, you prayed to get a song in one or two takes because renting a place was too expensive, musicians had to be paid and there, was an army of technicians spreading wires and microphones wall-to-wall." But studio techniques have changed. "The whole thing was done in less than 45 minutes," she said. "I sang only with a rhythm section, a few background singers and Dr. John on piano. It was a lot of fun but I kept wondering how Joel was going to make sense of this. "When I heard the finished product a few weeks later, I was flabbergasted. Joel had dubbed in the tracks of the Mummers' banjoes and bits from Count Basic's orchestra. It was like an assembly line with Joel adding here and there. But it sounded great!" The record's success has persuaded the 65-year-old singer to hit the road once more for a series of one- nighters across the country. Typical for the show biz veteran she is, Miss Smith has no qualms about resuming the tour circuit. "After 25 albums, seven record labels and uncounted personal appearances, it doesn't faze me," she said nonchalantly. She is less cool, however, about her trip to Philadelphia this fall when Mayor Frank Rizzo dubs her an honorary citizen and awards her a key to the City of Brotherly Love. "I can't wait. I love Philly and I love the Flyers and I love America." And obviously, three generations later, America still loves Kate Smith.

LAMB - Would you give me your views on histamine cephalgia," perhaps better known as Morton's Syndrome?" Over a seven-year period I have been to countless doctors and received as many different type treatments. I am seized by this condition for six weeks-at a time. The headaches usually last for 15 to 20 minutes and are very excruciating. Sleep precipitates them about halt the time. The pain is always on the right side of my head from behind my eye to the back of my neck. The condition will not tolerate alcohol in any form. Every doctor I have visited had no idea of the cause or the treatment for this problem. Three years ago I did see an allergist who was familiar with the ailment. He gave me histamine injections, and the treatment made it possible to have a two-year vacation from these headaches. Now I am in one of the six-week seizure periods. Do you have any explanation for this condition, and are you aware of any other treatment or cure? DEAR READER - These headaches are pretty much as you have described them. Often they affect the nose and cause a lot of watering from the nose and eye. They can affect either the right or left side of the head at different times in the same patient. Alcohol is known to make the condition worse during episodes of these attacks. In between the clusters of attacks it has no affect. Note the term "cluster." These are often called cluster headaches because the attacks come in clusters for a few weeks and then may not recur for months or even years. This characteristic of them makes it very difficult for the doctor or the patient to evaluate various treatments. You could have a sud- WIN AT BRIDGE den, spontaneo.us, free period. It's just possible that this was the reason for your two-year vacation from headaches rather than the histamine'injections. No one knows under these circumstances. These headaches are considered by most authorities today as a Variation of "migraine headaches." And the treatment is essentially the same as that used for migraines. This sometimes leaves something to be desired. The approach to these headaches has changed as they have beclme better understood. As you know, they have been described only a few years ago, and an experience factor has been necessary for better understanding. A number of medicines are now used to treat and to prevent these problems. The idea of histamine injections has fallen by the wayside. Only a few think they really help, and most neurologists think there are better medicines now. One of these to prevent attacks is Inderal (propranolol). Just as in typical migraine headaches, the person s life style and situations need to be explored. People with migraine headaches tend to be over-achievers and literally drive themselves emotionally and intellectually to the point that the headache occurs. Sometimes learning to understand one's own emotional dynamics and being able to do something about them helps a great deal in people with migraine and also cluster headaches.

(NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSN.I Cause of a/r crash sought By Oswald & James Jacoby Oswald: "One of the principles of play at all card games is to give the cards a chance to behave for you. Sometimes they just do." Jim: "Here is a handplayed by Carl Hultman of Dallas in a recent tournament that illustrates this. He might have doubled four spades, but it looked to him as if that would not be a good score, so he took the push to five hearts." Oswald: "West opened the king of diamonds. A quick look at dummy showed three apparent losers — two in clubs and one in spades. Could he do anything about it? He could give the cards a chance and hope. Jim: "He ruffed a diamond at trick two; drew trumps and led a low spade toward dummy's ten. East won the trick and did the best he could by leading the deuce of clubs. Hultman rose with the ace, played the ace of spades; ruffed his last spade, ruffed dummy's last diamond and led a club. West won and had to give South a ruff, discard and his contract." Oswald: "West congratulated Carl and pointed out that a club lead would have beaten the hand, but somehow or other he had never even considered it." (NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSN.) HEBER SPRINGS, Ark. (AP) —- An investigation is under way into the crash of a twin-engine military airplane near here Sunday that killed the plane's young pilot. Sheriff DeLone Wright of Cleburne County identified the victim as 1st Lt. Thomas M. Sandusky, 28, of Little Rock. Wright said Sandusky was on a training mission when his plane crashed into Greers Ferry Lake. The plane was assigned to New River Marine Station at Jacksonville, N. C. Wright said the Little Rock address was obtained from Sandusky's driver's license and that it actually might be his father-in-law's residence. Divers found Sandusky's body attached to a parachute in 30 feet of water about 300 feet from the site of the plane crash, Wright said. The aircraft sank in approximately 60 feet of water, he said. "We feel he tried to get himself out of the plane when he realized he was in trouble," Wright said. But, the sheriff added, Sandusky could have been thrown from the plane. An autopsy was to be performed. When the plane struck a power line before it crashed, Wright said, it knocked out power in the Edgemont area Power was being restored Sunday night, he said. State Sen. Ralph Patterson of North Little Rock said he and his family were sitting in the Lake Front Lodge Restaurant and saw the accident occur. Colonel Sanders is cookin 1 chicken for picnics.
