Radio Teleimion / Movies FRIDAY, MARCH II, iY66 rVM=»t DON SCHELLIE Of Kentucky Burgoo And Boys Chorus We are forever getting clippings about Our Town," snipped from the journals of faraway cities. The most recent cutting appeared in the Latrobe (Pa.) Bulletin's Sidewalk Soundings column, by Jack George. It was sent to us by Mrs. C. C. McFadyen, of 4031E. 2nd St. "Just thought you would like to see what others think of Tucson Boys Chorus," Mrs. McF noted. Well sir, here's what one other--Jack George--thought: Tuesday evening in Kennedy Hall, a delighted audience heard 31 boys bring the "Sound of Music" to Latrobe. The Greater Latrobe Music Association presented the famous Tucson Boys Chorus and their performance was outstanding. The boys were fine showmen, as well as skilled musicians and their joy in the music they presented was evident. During the classical portion of the program the chorus showed fine control and amazing diction... However, the group was most effective doing the "westerns" arranged by their late director Eduardo Caso. This portion was 1 .very well staged and their pure voice quality was an asset in these simple relaxed selections. The final portion of the program was a segment of American show tunes and the boys sang these with the vitality and joy that only youth seems to possess. , From the audience response, it was evident that everyone could have adopted them enmasse. It must be noted the boys were extremely well disciplined. Their founder and original director once explained his boys this way: "To become a first-rate choral singer a boy must learn to concentrate and to accept discipline. These qualities, learned in the rigid training of the chorus carry over into the boy's everyday life." It is. a comfort to know there are still young musicians in this country who cut their hah-, and are not afraid to sing good music, and are All Boy! o o o THE ITEM HERE about the old recipe for. Swedish Meat Balls ("take 25 cents worth of ground steak and pork")'- inspired Mrs. Herbert F. Krucker to poke about the house for a tucked-away copy of a "Southern Cook Book of Fine Old Recipes." Or, so writes Mrs. K, of 2111 E. Adams St. In that book, she continues, is an amazing recipe for Kentucky Burgoo (makes 1,200 gallons) and the celebrated recipe for Pot Likker, which was made famous by the late Senator Huey f . Long. Kentucky Burgoo, Mrs. Krucker explains, is a stew, and is served in the Bluegrass State on "Derby Days, at Political Rallies, Horse Sales and at other outdoor events." (Mrs. Krucker does not say whether she has tried Kentucky Burgoo, but that is another stocy. Nor does she pass the details of the recipe along to us, though it is a comfort knowing she has it available. You never know when unexpected guests are going to drop in and you'll have to rustle up 1,200 gallons of something or other.) This intriguing little book (says Mrs. Krucker) also prints an interesting homily which thus informs us: "Some Southern homes make quite an event of the 'Guest Breakfast' which frequently consists of fruits, chicken hash, hot cakes, sausage, corn bread, pie and coffee "And then there is that celebrated ritual known as the 'Kentucky Breakfast,' which is said to consist of a big beefsteak, a quart of bourbon and a houn'dog. "The dog eats the beefsteak." ' Action, Please If you have a question or a problem to be solved, involving any governmental agency or public matter in the Tucson area, write to Action, Please, care of the Tucson Daily Citizen. Reporters will investigate your queries and answer them in this column. Questions must be submitted in writing, and must contain your full name and address (which will be withheld from publication on request). No Right Of Way QUESTION--The "section of North Treat Avenue from Grant Road to Water Street is unpaved and, in its present condition, is a disgrace to the City of Tucson. It is full of chuckholes and ruts and hasn't been graded in months. Also, being a drainage way for Treat Avenue to the south, channels have cut into the roadway and the material removed by erosion deposited on Treat on the north. Visitors to the area are astounded at the bad condition of this street, and frankly, you can't blame them for being so critical. We always try to route visitors around this section of street so that we don't have to listen to the usual protest. . My question is, can't this section of Treat be paved or at least unproved? --John F. Delanay, 2601 N. Treat Ave. ANSWER--There seems to be a right of way problem. The city just doesn't have it and so far has been unsuccessful in obtaining it via the gift route. The right of way is necessary for drainage, which must be taken care of before the street can be paved properly. The only bright note is that the city has the right of way for two of the four parcels involved. That's 50 per cent. Because city officials believe there are other areas more critical, the right of way has not been scheduled for purchase. In other words, if they can get it by gift, as they did the other two parcels, they will go ahead with the project. If not, they don't see purchasing it at this time. May be a long wait. Wilmot-Kolb Paving QUESTION--Not long ago Davis- Monthan Air Force Base requested that the City of Tucson widen and pave the entrance to the base by way of Wilmot and Kolb Road. Most people realize that Davis-Monthan has kept and maintained a steady flow of money into the city for the past 20 years, and that without Davis-Monthan's s u p p o r t the city certainly wouldn't have reached its present growth. It seems that D-M should have our utmost support, and that anything that would make it easier to get to and from the base should be in the best interest of the city. The mayor seems to think it is better to receive than to give. Just recently he was disturbed because the Defense Department curtailed certain appropriations for building a few more units on the base. He was ready to go to Washington. However, he must remember that the base is still here and the flow of its workload is still being retained. I believe that we shouldn't bite the hand that helps feed us. So, why not place a little priority on the Wilmot-Kolb Road project?--James C. Kinney, 6221 E. 25th St. ANSWER--City officials point out that plans for paving Wilmot Road (four-lane) between Golf Links Road and 22nd Street are complete and ready to go. They need only approval of mayor and council to start. But, the portion of Wilmot from Golf Links south to one-fourth of a mile south of Stella (county) and the portion from the east gate to the runway on the base are both only two lane. Consequently, the city officials feel that until the base and the county improve these roads, the paving of Wilmot would not accomplish much. Also, the mayor and council wanted Craycroft between Broadway and Speedway improved first -- a much needed improvement -- so the Wilmot section was delayed for this project. ANN LANDERS 'The Shape' Wonders Why She Isn 't Liked DEAR ANN LANDERS: I am 16, a natural blonde with blue eyes and a dimpled chin. I should tell you about my dimensions because this is part of the problem. I measure 39-22-36. My nickname is "The Shape." Believe me, Ann Landers, I would gladly .trade 20 fellows for the companionship of just one girl I could REALLY talk to. I've asked two girls why they don't like me. One girl said it was the way I walk. Well, I happen to be very proud of my assets and I don't wish to go slinking around with my shoulders hunched up. I think the reason I don't have girl friends is because they are envious of my assets. Please tell me how to get myself accepted by girls. --In Search of Friendship DEAR IN SEARCH OF; The best way to have girl friends is to show an interest in THEM. Talk to them. Smile at them. Invite them to your house. Fix 'em up with dates. Be friendly. And forget about your assets. 0 0 0 DEAR ANN LANDERS: A friend of ours (who brags a lot) made quite a point of the fact that her daughter just got engaged to DR. So- andso. Well, I found out yesterday that he is a dentist and not a doctor. The braggy mother has tried to give everyone the impression that her future son-in-law is practicing medicine. I told my husband that this is very dishonest and that if she was a person of good character she would introduce him as, "Our future son-in-law, Dr Soandso who is a dentist." My husband says I'm wrong about this. I told him I was going to ask .your opinion and I was sure you'd back me up because from your writing I can tell that you hate phonies as much as I do. --On the Level DEAR ON THE: A dentist is a doctor of dentistry and has earned the title doctor. I see no reason why he should be introduced as "Dr. Soandso the dentist." DEAR ANN LANDERS: You said in a column recently that an enlightened husband can help his wife through the menopause. You are right. But please tell the world that an enlightened woman can help herself a lot, too. My aunt played the menopause for all it was worth--and it was worth plenty--for 2Q years. She used to insult everybody and blame it on "nerves--the change, you know." When she was too lazy to fix a meal for her family, which was like three times a week, she' sent them next door to my mother's house. "Dizzy spells--from the change." There are a lot of women in this world who cling to old wives tales about the change when they should go to a doctor and get the wonderful new help .that is available to them. Send them--will you, Ann?--Spirit of '66. DEAR SPIRIT: I can't SEND 'em. I can only suggest that they go. And so I am suggesting it again. Go already, ladies. You'll be glad you did. o o o No teen-ager is as confident as he appears. Get clued in. Send for Ann Landers' booklet "Dating Do's a n d Don'ts," enclosing with your request 35 cents in coin and a long, self-addressed, stamped envelope. Ann Landers will be glad to help you with your problems. Send them to her in care of the Tucson Daily Citizen, enclosing a .stamped, .self-addressed envelope. CopyrisM 19« 3400 E.
