ROUND TOWN and... THE CLOCK With the Tribune by R. D. Maney T-V In Review Note to Editors: Fred Danzig, UPI TV reviewer, has resigned to accept a position with an advertising trade publication. Pending appointment of his -successor, the TV' in Review column will be written this week by H. D. • uigg, feature writer and reporter of UPI's New York staff. Today we celebrate the Birthday of a great man - a man whose very name suggests righteousness, courage in the face of great odds; a selfless man. . .who was destined to become a great leader - and who rose from a very humble beginning to be President of the United States of America. . .and to die a martyre to the cause he espoused. AS. WE HAVE remarked from time to time ... it seems that men of Lincoln and Washington calibre are to be forgotten in this day of the space craft and nuclear warfare. ONE LITTLE NOTE we read in a news story, pertaining to the series of events to be carried out today on the birthday of Lincoln . . i is worth repeating . . . worth repeating because it shows more clearly than we could put it—that patriotism is getting to be a garment some put on for a day—and remove until the next occasion to use same.' —RT— A SCHOOL EXECUTIVE said no special observance would be held today in Indianapolis -. . . but that individual teachers could mark tiie day ... as .they wish. A PRETTY SORRY situation ! What's become ot the days set aside in every school for programs honoring men of the Lincoln and Washington calibre. . . men who received real attention when this vril-er was in school. . . and were revered by every child . . . from ' the first grade on up? SURELY WE DON'T forget so easily .. .or is it the rush-rush of today that is crowding out all of these happy occasions . ". . when it was possible for the teachers in our schools to "{Mint up" our great men . . . and for at least a day . . . to allow the names to become familiar to the youngsters . . . and maybe even have a family discussion of the man at the dinner table at home? —RT— WE GRANT THAT the job of our President today is indeed a rough one i. . . but there is a comparison with the struggle this man Lincoln had in his time. Think it over ... and if your children ask about Mr. Lincoln tell ihem of his deeds . . . his greatness ... his struggles . . . and above all his SELFLESSNESS ... it is not so common in the great or so-called great of today! Names like Lincoln, Washington. Jefferson- . . . should not be just names in a history book . . . they deserve their places in the minds of the young ... as shining examples of what men should be. AND 1XCIDEXTLY ... it looks I as though the I'resident is" playing | the "other side of the record" now —and OFFENSE instead of "DEFENSE is beginning to pay off. NIKKY STILL DON'T UNDERSTAND THE OLD BULLY of Budapest still doesn't understand the workings of the democratic system. He sent Mr. Kennedy a long letter, setting out reasons for a summit conference. In this he claimed that the issues were too serious to fallow BUREAUCRATS to settle. . .but needed TOP ECHELON attention. Naturally • old plug-ugly means the foreign ministers. He forgets that in other civilized lands. . .the people. . -or representatives of the people are SUPPOSED to have a say in the matter. Again the big difference between Communism and our way of life. We have drifted away- in recent years. . .from the rights of Senatprs and Representatives to be IN ON certain aspects of government. . -but let's hope that we haven't drifted so far that we allow another SUMMIT without first letting our elected officials . . .cabinet members, etc: have a say. Mil. KENNEDY—you are gaining ground on the Butcher - please keep a firm grip on the iball. . .and stay on the offense. . .we look better that way. It is in the American .tradition! ROUND TOWN OF COURSE it's almost spring . . .otherwise how can you account for the TULIPS about to come to life at the home of Mrs. Louise Tragesser, 604 N. East St? -. JR. TOWN CRYER WE HAD A letter signed in the above manner, from a student in a history class at the Tipton high school; He 'mentioned that we had said something about bis class and a subject-they were discussing in class orij^day. He also mentioned the fact-Jhat ^ his teacher had; received numerous - telephone:. calls questioning him on the intelligence of the class on a local subject. He also mentioned that they did not debate on terms of Republican and Democrat . . .but on terms of American vs American. RT THIS WE LIKE: Quote: "Has it come to the point where even the high school student cannot discuss world and local politics and affairs wihtout redicule and phone calls from those who disagree? END OF QUOTE. He goes on to say that the name of this country is the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA not the United States of Democrates or Republicans! AS WE SAID BEFORE: don't worry too much about the patriotism of. the youngsters. . .they are thinking much more than their elders. -. .or at least some of them are! P.S. HE ALSO SAID there had been a substitute teacher at the helm the day the discussion took place. TODAY'S TIDBIT AS I WOULD not ,be a slave - so I would not be a MASTER. This expresses my idea of Democracy. A.

The longtime proprietor of this column has departed these precincts, and you'll have to suffer along with me for a few days until we can get ourselves a new boy, one who knows something about the business at hand. It sometimes seems' that, the idea of a TV column is to provide you with the chance of reading it so you can hate yourself for turning on what you did last night. But you'd better start hating yourself if you didn't turn on NBC's "The Broadway of Lerner and Loewe" Sunday night., A more tuneful, professional frolic through (rthe wonderful songworld of one.of history's most successful collaborations would be hard to imageine. I was talking ..with Julie Andrews, one of the principals, not long ago.and she volunteered she thought Maurice. Chevalier "is probably the hit of the show." She can delete the word "probably" |,now. Chevalier picked up the show and ran away with it. His rendering of "Camelot" was one of the deftest things he'has done in an entertainment career that—as lyricist Alan Jay 'Lerner had occasion to remark — now is in its 61st year. The words of the poet Lerner in that song could apply to the whole, fine hour: 'In short there's simply not—a more congenial spot—for happy 11:00 11:30 12:00 12:30 1:00 1:30 2:00 2:30 3:00 3:30 Price Is Right (c) Concentration Farm Report — News Truth or Consequences Jack LaLanhe 3 Stooges Jan Murray (c) Loretla Young Dr. M alone ~ Our Five Daughters WLW-T - TV (Channel 13) Monday, February 12, 1962 4:00 American Bandstand 5:00 Casper the Ghost 5:30 Open Quote 5:45 Critic at Large 6:00 News , 6:15 Wthr.; Sports 6:30 Huckleberry Hound 7:00 Brothers Brannagan 7:30 T.B.A. 8:00 Basketball Spec. 10:00 Ben Casey ,; ; 11:00 News; Weather T 11:15 Sports 11:30 M-Squad Tuesday, February 13, 1962 8:15 News; Wthr. 8:30 World Understanding 9:00 Kindergarten 10:00 Camouflage 10:30 Day in Court. 11:00 The Texan 11:30 Your for a Song 12:00 50-50 Club (c) 1:30 Make a Face .2:00 Jane Wyman 2:30 Seven Keys 3:00 Queen for a Day 3:30 Who.Trust?

No obligation! ever-aftering than here in Cam-clot," From the time, at the start, when Chevalier walked through a stage door and said "Everee show begins like thees," to the end, when his footsteps echoed across a bare stage, the show was a joy to behold. Made a man wish he could afford a living-color set. Miss Andrews never was better on TV. She looked radiant. Richard Burton's bit from the throne scene in Camelot came over on this show even better than on the Broadway stage, J thought. Robert Goulet was in fine voice. Stanley Holloway got to the church on time, as only he can do it. The Chev'alier-Holloway duet of "Almost Like Being in Love" made me with that television would produce . "Brigadoon," one of L.-and-L.s best efforts. If it should, I'm for Norman Jewison, to-do it.- He produced with style and neatness. Practically the entire show as a Lerner-Loewe recital, except that Burton did a few imitations and worked in some Shakespears and told how—his feet felt before curtain time—they curl, up like clenched fists. A tidy bit of information. He never said how he got them open again. 'What a" happy salute Lerner, Loewe, Broadway; and show biz. ABC's Wide World of Sports served,up the Los Angeles Times indoor'games for us track and field buffs and gave up two record-breaking feats. It almost seemed like "The Peter Snell Show" when the remarkable New Zealander with the long, smooth stride did the 1,000-yard run in 2;06. But it lurried into the "Jim Beatty Show" at the end when the personable young American, with the heavy Southern accent turned in the first under-four-minute indoor mile in history. They ran the tape on the Beatty thriller during the last half hour, which overlapped into "The Loyal Opposition" on NBC (the track meet had been held Saturday). To see Beatty I had to turn back to ABC just as Barry Goldwater came on. I was back to NBC in 3:58.* by the stopwatch and Goldwater was saying "Thank you very much, goodby." This look at the Republicans had the GOP glamor boys oh view—'Ike, Dick, Rocky, Barry, Ev and Charley— and 1964 seemed right around the corner. lit was altogether fitting and proper to examine the party on the eve of the birthday of Abraham Lincoln, the well-known Republican and a "supreme politician," as anchor man Frank McGee pointed out. Over on CBS, Carl Sandburg paid eloquent tribute to Lincoln on the Sullivan Show- Jack Benny romped through a Western spoof in the Benny manner ("I'm going to fill you so full of holes the flies will get in and you'll buzz to death.") But Hugh O'Brian, the man who made Wyatt Earp what he is today and then deserted the West, turned in a fine performance in the NBC Theater 6 version of the old movie classic "Spellbound." So did Maureen O'Hara. Well done. mm WANTADS •V, PRINCESS GARDNER* FRENCH FURSE The Almanac By United Press International Today is Monday, Feb. 12, the 43rd day of the year with 322 to follow' in 1962. This is Lincoln's birthday. The moon is approaching its full phase. • • . On this day in history: In 1912, China became a republic, as the Manchu dynasty was overthrown by Chinese Nationalists. In 1918, all theaters in New York were shut down,to save coal. In 1924, Paul Whiteman conducted a program of'"'symphonic jazz" in New York. City, with George Gershwin playing his "Rhapsody in Blue." In 1953, Soviet Russia broke off [ diplomatic relations with Israel after terrorists bombed the Russian legation in Tel Aviv. fl FAMILY yfl MENDED HEARTS OKLAHOMA SURGEONS CORRECTED IDENTICAL HEART DEFECTS OF BROTHERS MARK AND BARRY CARTER AND THEIR FIRST COUSINS, BROTHERS JIM AND JOHN DEATON Of DEATH IN US.

' - •PHILADELPHIA (UPI)—Beans are on the menu to stay in the Red Lion Area Senior High School despite a "ban on the bean" demonstration by students. Nearly all of the school's 1,000 students toted their own lunches to school Friday to protest government surplus beans they claim are too J hard to eat.: But supervising Principal Frederick P. Sample said beans will continue on the menu. The school still has 800 pounds in storage. Advertise In The Tribune THIMBLE THEATER On The Lighter Side By DICK WEST United Press International WASHINGTON <UPX)—In the mail came an engraved invitation that set hearts aflutter among the more social conscious recipients. • "The vice president requests the pleasure of your company at a cocktail party and dinner to be given in honor of the occasion," it said. . Some who received the invitation headed straight for the telephone and dialed the "R.S.V.P," number listed on the card. When you live in Washington and the vice president. invites you to dinner, you donl waste much time accepting.'. " : . . Not until ,'they heard the voice on the other end of the line did many of ^he people on the invitation list suspect that somehing was sofewy. The R.S.V.P. number, they dis covered, put them in touch with one of those'dial-a-prayer services •which' give out recorded messages of inspiration over the phone. Should Read Carefully Those who received the invitation should have read it more carefully. They should have noted that it did not say what the occasion was-or what the vice president was vice president of. Then they would have known that it was some kind of a joke and would not have made fools of themselves by thinking they were ' being asked to dine with Lyndon B. Johnson. Certainly they would not have bragged about it to their friends. -. Oh, well, I'll know better next time. Economy /a Downtoam • , OHIO FREE OVERNIGHT PARKING. For Ironiionr guooto.

Wheeler Association of the Politically Obscure," otherwise known as "WAWA."* According to Tim Colcord, the association's "vice president in charge of being secretary," it was formed by a group of congressional staff employes for the purpose of "honoring the obscure and obscuring the~ honored.' The association's motto is "Wheeler? Who is he?" That was the classic line spoken by former President Rutherford B. Hayes when he was told that William A. Wheeler was to be his vice presidential running mate. Once a- year; the association members get together. to bestow awards on politicians 'who might otherwise have gone undecorated, and who would have preferred it that way. There is, for example, the "Harold Stassen Always a Bridesmaid hut never a Bride Award." An ; other is the "George Washington Plunkett Award," named in honor . of a former Tammany boss who uttered the deathless words "I seen my opportunities and • I took 'em."
