In Ills first Interview Mnce his Illness, the chubby half of the Bud Abbott and Lou Costello comedy team—the nation's theater box office champions—Invited me lo his bedside in his San Fernando Valley home yesterday to settle a lot of rumors.

He will not be crip- \ u small public address system passed. The severe pain has gone. Jomplcle recovery is only a matter of lime. Meanwhile, Urn energetic Costello will have to remain in bed, upsetting a million dollars' worth of picture and radio contracts. "Hut at least we won't starve," says I.ou. Under a Lloyds of London insurance policy which costs him $'_'(;00 a year, Costello will collect $1250 a week for 104 weeks, or until he returns to work. "And," says he, "there's no Income tax on Uic p.iyinents. "How do I keep from going nuts?" Co.stello puffed on his cigar, his fifth in 12.weeks (normally he smokes from 15 to 20 a day) and looked out the big window beside his Ijed to the back yard where two of his three children,, G-yciir- old Patricia Ann tind 4-year-old Carole I.ou, were glaring ut C!l cli otbcr, lists clenched, about to mix it up over possession of a doll "Listen," said Lou, switching ' on At The Hospitals Walls Hospital Admitted—.

'The pain," said Costello, "was like a thousand toothaches." Then il left his left leg and went lo his right. For several weeks it, jumped from legs lo arms and hands, anil back to legs. It slill does, but the crisis has he- .side-his bed. "All right, ail right —break it up," the Coslello voice boomed out Into tlie back yard Mrs. Lou, dozing in a swing beside the swimming pool, almost fell Inlo the water.

Dr. Kovner permits only a few visitors—Partner Hud Abbott; their writer, John Grant, and old friend Ann Corlo. There's tons of mall; too, from all over the world, all wishing htm a speedy recovery.- And of coin-so there are the usual letters with home remedies for rheumatic fever. One fellow told him' to wear steel ring—guaranteed that 11 would/eliminate all the poison. A woman In Nebraska lold him to put a potato in his pocket. "If you don't have a pocket," she wrote, "just pin the iwtuto to your pajamas." But the topper was a letter from a guy in Oregon who wrote: "Slice two dozen onions into a quart of .scotch. Then dig a hole in your' back yard and dump in the scotch and oninns. Six days later cat a tcaspoonful of dirt from the hole and you'll be cured." Lou Coslcllo hasn't .succumbed to any home remedies but he is following his 'doctor's orders. As he says, "I've been a g-B-B-g- E-good boy." News Of WAACs, WAVES and SPARS Alls. Inez T.
