Former 'little Godfrey' to Sing at Navy Benefit Ball WASHINGTON CD—Singer Julius 23 months to the day until sacked La Rosa prepared for a show must-go-on performance tonight amid publicity ripples from his abrupt firing by Arthur Godfrey. Godfrey, whose calm good humor has made him a television Titan, gave the young Brooklyn baritone his sailing papers last Monday. That was a swan song, Godfrey told his morning viewers as La Rosa finished singing. "At first," La Rosa told a news conference Thursday night through incipient tears, "I didn't know what he- meant. I had never heard the expression before. But I understood later when he raid something about wishing me godspeed." La Rosa emphasized he does Lt. Suqua of the Salvation Army hot want to get into a battle with will be the guest speaker.

"He's older than I am and my father always taught me to have respect for people older than you." The 23-year-old baritone sings at a Naval Relief Society ball tonight at the naval gun factory. He was stationed there as a sailor for two years before Godfrey "discovered" him. Had No Reason La Rosa said that "deep down in my heart I know that Mr. Godfrey had no bona fide reason" for firing me." But he acknowledged he had violated an agreement with Godfrey under which all the "Little Godfreys" said they would hire no independent booking agency to represent them. The; singer sidestepped questions about why he had contracted with the agency, General Artists Corp., but said he signed up four days before Godfrey gave him the ax. 'I tried to tell Mr. Godfrey about it, but I couldn't reach him," La Rosa said. Godfrey told a news conference in New York Wednesday he fired La Rosa for signing the personal management contract. He fired Bleyer, he said, because Bleyer made a phonograph record featuring Don McNeill of the rival American Broadcasting Co. La Rosa's contract with the Columbia Broadcasting System still has five years to run and poses an ironclad hurdle to his cashing in on big money offers. To Seek New Part General Artists President Tom Rockwell said he hopes to negotiate changes m the contract, which CBS officials described as custom ary for new talent, yielding La Rosa an average of about $1,000 a week with Godfrey. "CBS is a fair organization," Rockwell said. "I'm sure we'll] work something out." In the meantime, he said, he is Oneida Church To Nolo Prayer Week ON'KIDA — A Week of Prayer Service will be sponsored by the Woman's Society of Christian Service of the Oneida Methodist Church this Sunday evening at 7:30.
