The star of the troupe of trav-' eling entertainers, Hope, longj ago evolved a fool-proof recipe j for entertaining fighting men I far from home and he wisely; never changes the basic: ingredients. This year it consisted of 19 j very pretty girls who could also j sing, dance a bit and occasional- j ly set up the straight lines for | the comedians. Jokes change from year) to year and place to place, but as always some of the biggest laughs come from jokes about local weather and customs in! remote places of the world. The show suggested the enormous amount of travel corwclcd | into a few days—Jnpan, Thai- i land. Korea as well as Vietnam —and sometimes the perform- j ers looked a little tired when! they were putting on their third ' three-hour show in a day. For the television audience, it -o- -o- -o- is a report about the fighting ; men to the folks back home, and 1 for us. as always, the high mo-: ments wore the shouts of relaxed ; service men. many of them wounded, enjoying themselves. Performer Ann-Margret, sing-! cr Linda Bennett and a singing i group called the Gold-diggers drew most of the whistles. Hope's report about conditions back home--"I'd planned to spend Christmas in the StRtes TV Review but I can't stand violence"— chew the big laughs. The program was followed on NBC by another excellent special, this one falling somewhere between variety and a topical revue and starring Alan King. In the course of assorted sketches. musical numbers, blackouts and monologues, King and his guest stars satirized subjects from politics to the Pill, from telephone service to men's cosmetics. The sketch with the greatest satiric power had a bunch of -o- -o- -o- politicians looking over a campaign platform called "The Ten Commandments." From the first -"That would lose us every teen-age vote in the country"—to the last, the practical politicians found it a document impossible to win with. Probably the less sriri the better about CBS' new comedy series. "The Queen and I." that premiered earlier in the evening. The series-which the network describes as wacky - must have been created by crossing "McHale's Navy" with "F troop, and even hiring veterans from both shows. But the show doesn't work out near as well as the others. It revolves around some crew members trying to keep their ship from being sold as scrap. Larry Storch played the ship's purser, a sort of hyperthyroid con man, and Billy De Wolfe, as first officer, is in a state of constant fury, his comedy stock in trade. The story is played mostly aboard an ocean liner, which is a new idea, but everything else was predictable and familiar. 3:00-2 3 3:30-2 4:00-2 3 6 4:30- On Sept. 9, 1919, almost the entire police force of Boston went on strke. This was the first time a great American city was without police protection. CALL CHARLES CARPENTER FOB PROMPT ATTENTION TO YOUR REAL ESTATE NEEDS Wanted Listins* BURKETT REALTY Office 343-2860 Home 344-0188 LET'S STOP 'BEATING THE DEVIL AROUND THE STUMP 7 Everyone has a reason why we do not have new industries and who and what is to blame, etc. — etc. — etc. — etc. AND SO DO I! I have worked closely on many new industrial prospects both as a Committee member or as a private citizen, to help bring this about. I believe that I have been, in many cases, close enough to see our problem and it is not just one thing — it is a mess of small things which can be solved but only if everyone is willing to put their shoulder to the wheel. We can build all the new homes, new roads, new centers, etc., but they are not worth a hoot without increasing the availability of jobs for people, without increasing our tax base just to keep on at least an equal footing with rising costs and without having the tremendous opportunities that new job expansion can bring. So, I ask — HOW ABOUT A BLUE RIBBON INDUSTRIAL COMMITTEE? I will ask that the City Council adopt a plan to establish a Blue Ribbon Industrial Committee to be made of people, organizations and existing committees who know what's what. I believe the basic problem is a lock of coordinated programs, methods and approaches to possible industrial relations. WE MUST BE ABLE TO PROVIDE AN INSTANT — to any firm — answers to their basic questions which are concise and factual and not have to be running around hither and yon looking for the answers. WE MUST BE ABLE TO SAY — This is how much ground is available and where and how much. This is how much water is available both now and in the future and any special rates. This is the rate of utility expenses you will incur and certain provisions which have been made for industry. This is the tax structure and any possible enjoyments. This is the amount and type of labor available and this is what can be done. These are some of the fundamental financial arrangements that the combined efforts of our institutions have devised for industry. This is the type of transportation available and the rates. This is the type of education you will have at your employees disposal and the levels and plans thereof. These are the recreational facilities and the future plans which will be made concrete and firm for you and your employees. This is the type of environment you will have in relation to your firm and its people. And many more. YES — SOME OF THESE WE HAVE ON THE PLUS SIDE — SOME NEED TO BE "MPROVED — AND SOME NEED TO BE ENACTED BY FORWARD MOVING CITY GOVERNMENT AND PRIVATE ENTERPRISE. I believe it is the RESPONSIBILITY and the function of the City to be the instrument to put this all together. I believe it is the RESPONSIBILITY of the City to ask for special legislation and cooperation with other governing bodies if necessary to cope with and deal intelligently with problems — knowing that as a City — WE ARE IN A DIRECT AND AGGRESSIVE COMPETITION WITH OTHER CITIES I believe that certain advantages must be available on an equal basis and not a one sided affair. I know that 100% of nothing is nothing and that 50% of something is something. However, I also believe that the ultimate RESPONSIBILITY is ours — YOURS AND MINE. We must staff this Committee with people who can give us their best and their knowledge. Plumbers for plumbing problems and related procedures. Engineers for all types of engineering developments and problems. Labor for how to attack the problems and where we can go to solve them. Contractors and Architects for building and designing problems and cost problems. Electricians for electrical problems. Business for economical approaches. Top management for getting the wheels into motion. And many ordinary citizens who can take a level headed view. With these type of people sitting down — looking at our future — the demands of industry — what needs to be done to attract industry — and always keeping in mind that EACH IS A SPECIALIST IN HIS OR HER OWN FIELD and most importantly — THAT THE CITY IS BACKING THEM UP 100% We can and will move into the lead not only here at home but everywhere. This Committee can be used for our own problems. When we need advice, plans or help in water extensions, road improvements, building projects, etc., we will have them available and the know how. I firmly believe that when people are given the opportunity to assjst — THEY WILL GIVE EVERYTHING THEY HAVE AND THEN SOME and I believe its about time to PUSH — PUSH — PUSH and PUSH in a single, jnited effort.
