(AP) - Ted Mack, the low-keyed master of ceremonies who made the Original Amateur Hour an instit'ution on television for 22 years, is dead at 72. Mack, whose home was in Irvington, just north of New York City, died Monday afternoon in Phelps Memorial Hospital. A private memorial service was conducted Tuesday. Dr. Robert Wren, a physician and friend of Mack, said Mack was hospitalized over the weekend because of breathing difficulty. He said death was due to heart failure. The amateur hour began as a radio show in the 1930s under the late Major Bowes, who hired Mack as a talent scout. After Bowes' death, Mack took over the show and in 1948 led it into the infant television field, where it was to flourish on four networks. The show lasted until 1970 and was the oldest entertainment program on television when the combination of pro football and failure to attract new viewers doomed it. It had a steady audience estimated at 10 million when the last show aired on CBS. (Mack was to have judged a talent show at the Dane County Junior Fair Thursday night. Fair officials said Buddy Page, chief talent scout for the Ted Mack organization, will replace Mack as judge.) Over the years Mack and. his associates scrprmed young hopefuls whose numberb ran to more than a million and whose talents ranged from sublime to kooky. In the early days of the radio show, an unknown youngster from New Jersey appeared with a group called the Hobokcn Four. He was Frank Sinatra. Other . names from among the thousands of unknowns and amateurs given a boost by the show include opera stars Robert Merrill, Regina Resnick, Maria Callus and Beverly Sills, dancer Vera-Ellen, singers Pat Boone and Jerry Vale'and comic Jack Carter. No matter what the act, Mack was a perfect host, introducing them with warmth, a gentle smile and sympathy. Born William Edward Maguiness in Greeley, Colo., he changed his name to Ted Mack when he joined the Ben Ted Mack Pollack orchestra in 1926, playing saxophone and clarinet. He was in fast company. Other band members included Glenn Miller, Jack Teagarden, Bix Biederbeeke and Red Nichols. When Mack left a year later, Benny Goodman signed on, leading Mack to say in later years, "They got a better clarinet player." After leading a pit band and emeeeing' vaudeville in Los Angeles for a year, he"« organized his own band, touring until the Depression dried up playing dates. .• He then became a conductor at the.; MGM movie studio, where Bowes spot-'- ted him and hired him in 1935 to be his;; principal assistant and scout for the.: radio amateur hour. ''.: Mack put the show on television first;^ with the old Dumont network in>" : January 1948. The program later moved> to NBC-TV and ABC. Its final 12 years ;• were with CBS. ;= After leaving the air, Mack took to the,: college lecture circuit and hosted!locally arranged amateur shows. He aK] > so made occasional guest appearances-; on television. . '.".; He is survived by his widow, the;' former Marguerite Overholt. They! celebrated their 50th wedding anniver-/ sary last March.
