And then she said how much she'd miss the excitement of her radio Job. 'I was on It more limes than any other child. I only missed three r.lmes—once from a cold and twice- when I had measles. •The little children on the program will say anything and they trink it is funny—and the audience does, too," she remarked wistfully "You know to get my first .uiio work I nad to say I was older thai was—1 had to say i was 10 whei really was only 9.
