TEN EVENING TIMES, CUMBERLAND, ' Ml).. MONDAY, JANUARY 10, 1949 Phone 4GOO for a WANT AD Taker Kadio Ringside By John M. Cooper NEW YORK—(INS)—There is an old newspaper custom, familiar to everyone •who has seen n movie .version of a city j-oom, which demands that aJl reporters wear their hats in the office. A reporter 'without a hat is obviously no .reporter. at. all. In, the ^novies, it's the way you can tell .the hero from the villain. • Now it appears that this custom has been carried over.: into radio reporting, but on a very limited scale. A hasty, survey has revealed only lour -well-known hat wearers before the microphone. They arc Walter Winchcll, Drew Pearson, Walter Kiernan and .Don Goddard .. There are probably others,, but— . as noted—the survey was hasty. The first* three are on ABC, Goddard •who used' to be on NBC, is on ' WINS, the' Crosley station In New 'York. None could be found on CBS. NBC or Mutual. Goddard has been -wearing a hat while broadcasting ever since he first went on the air 14 years ago He was quite willing .to talk about it, "The reason is very simple," he said. "In most radio studios the acoustics are fine but the lights are bum, A hat acts as an.eyeshade. It 'also flelps you keep your'attention on the paper. ' "Then, too, you get attached to It and. it becomes a sort of fetish. And there's still another reason. — it makes your voice" sound better." Under questioning, Goddard continued: "When I was a reporter on the old New York. World, I never wore a hat in the office. Or outside, either. 'Couldn't afford one. Some of the other people did, but they were . .probably just too lazy to take them They'll 'Do It Every Time By Jimmy Hatlo -off. "You never see hats In newspaper • city' rooms now. Look at the New . York Times—it looks -like an. insurance office." Goddard was asked what kind of -hat he prefers,. ; "I like a soft fedora with a snap • brim," he said promptly. "Conserva- "tlve style, and-some dark color. And 'the hat- shouldn't be too now and ''stiff. . "As a matter' of fact," he eon-: ! tlnued, "there's only one store in •New, York where I'll buy a hat. It .'belongs to one of my old sponsors. "You don't have to mention his name." Would Goddard face the mike Ttrithout a hat? s • • "Certainly not." he said. "I al; ways put it on when I go into the • studio. A few times, when I couldn't I find it in a hurry, I put on sorne- • body else's. • "Another thing about a hat," he • added, "is that it helps relax you. • During the war, when you'd get " bulletins shoved under* your nose : all through a broadcast,.you could ' reach, up and 'adjust the' hat while ', you were ad libblng around them • That seemed to take off the. ten,' sion. •* "And even on an ordinary broad~,_cast, anybody will get a, little tense just before going on the air. It's natural. If. you're trying to do a •-good job. 1! "But confidentially," Goddard •• concluded, "we're inost of us ham r. actors, you know." i SAW ' CARRVIN6 I'M A DQNT YOU RUM OVER AMD SET ACQ'UAIMTED WITH TriAT LITTLE SlRL WHO JUST MOVED INJ-AMD-UH" ASK'HER.

Better Back Out Of Others' Strife In my opinion,- it's not compatible with. honor, and/or common sense for you to instruct Joe how to behave as regards Sybil. And since fundamentally you are most concerned about. self-preservation at this time, my advice is to put yourself on. record with both of them as washing your hands of their marital sickness and strife. They are a frightfully • neurotic air, and Joe's purist vow that he tents - no affair- with you, when orr.bined with'Sybil's,saga of infidelity and his exceeding'tolerance of 'it—until you encouraged him to lean on you—suggests that he may be unmanly In every ..sense of the word. But whatever" the crux of their trouble, it's "a good idea to have your minister tell Joe and Sybil.that you've bowed out of their private war,'and want them both to stay away from your door.

Useful Gifts So I suggested two fundamental gifts which are'of considerable -use to students, whether In high school or college.. ' The first-is a typewriter. Rebuilt machines can be purchased at slightly over half the original price, and secondhand typewriters can be had from -$50 upward,, depending upon their condition. ','• 'And a typewriterjnay add 5 points to n student's scholastic average, for written homework' assignments -are much easier to read and usually appear much neater when typed, than when scribbled in long hand. The professor may not realize that lie is subconsciously -prejudiced in favor of typed themes./but he is. Besides, it']s,faster to'type's, letter to the-home folks, so the parents and friends will probably receive more frequent rows.if the college student possesses a typewriter. Virtues Of A 'Typewriter People who, are poor; spellers and joor readers, are also, encouraged .o Improve, if they .vork at a j typewriter.

S25 apiece when they learn the touch! system • and .can average 10 words I words per minute in 4 weeks, time. Correct English Wins Jobs Another 'and less expensive gift is .a collegiate- dictionary.. The foundation of social and business success is predicated on.skillful use of words. "Give me the right word, and the right accent," stated Joseph Conrad, 'and I will move the world." . 'Indeed, I would be lost without a dictionary. It is 1 a most useful 1 tool of the brain. It serves as an amplifier of thoughts and a key to correct spelling.
