"TEN EVENING TIMES, CUMBERLAND, MD., THURSDAY, NOVEMBER .% 1955 Dial PA-2-4600 for » WANT /AD Taker For O'Brian, Labor Of Love With Slashed Coat BY DICK KLEINER NEW YORK—A few fast facts: Liberace, before his arrival in New York, requested that the Gotham Hotel put four TV sets in his suite .'•'.' . .Maurice Chevalier had to turn down Ed Murrow's request to appear on "Person to Person"—his contract for TV on NBC forbids it. CBS-TV's "You Are There" will be.made into a book, .with Walter Cronkite as editor. . . . Jane-Pickens and her husband, Bill Langley, will'Spend next summer cruising around Europe on the 70-foot yacht they're having built in England. . . . When NBC- Radio' s big five-a-week show, "Weekday," begins, one feature will-be a daily reading from a bestseller. First will be Anne Morrow:'Lindbergh's "Gift From the Sea," which will be read by either Martha Scott or Cornelia. Otis Sk'jnner. Ilka Chaw Cronkite Arthur Godfrey fired Lu Ann Simms, right on the heels of his dismissal of three other "friends " and the timing of the red head's ax'e is slightly curious It fell just m_time to coincide with the publishing of his story in the Saturday Evening Post, and gave the story some front page publicity. .Miss Simms, incidentally, "has been off his show to have a baby since March so now Arthur is eves' finrg people who aren t on his" show .* * - * F<T r ^ugh O'Bnan playing Wyatt Earp is a laboi of love It is also a labor of good hard cash, too, but let^fforget that crass commercial angle O'Bnan grew up liking western stones He \\ent to western movies, readj. western books and otherwise plunged fantasy deep into the old frontier days • f 'I parliculaily wondered about the every day life on the frontier," lie Jays, dressed in the unique ftockcoat kind of outfit Wyatl Eai p wears ' For instance, what did they do when their clothes were creased? There were no dry cleaners m Dodge City " -He- still doesn't know the answei tp'HJiat one.' but' he does know why Vtyatt harp's frock coat had a slash" in the back. -That was so he could draw' his six-shooter withou unbqttoning the coat, .which : coul< ha ive}' been the pause that kills. f&V on ,his : new, ABC-TV show O'Brian wears the authentic Wyal Earp, frock coat, accurate down to the vital slash. The pants are like high society striped trousers and the hat has a straight brim, like a gaucho's. One mother wrote to him that she approves the costume— "if my boy wears cowboy clothes like yours, at least he can go to church in them." O'Brian is still reading western stories—specifically, "Wyatt Earp, Frontier Marshal," by Stuart Lake. His copy is beat-up and earmarked and full of notes in the margin. If the show turns out to be hailed as pretty authentic stuff, it's mainly because Hugh O'Brian reads so much. * * + Ruth Altman, comedienne in "The Boy Friend," relays this story of a pilot in the Korean War, who brought his plane back despite terrible damage. "I think." he] said, "somebody from a higher altitude was for me." # #. * A problem confronting today's show business people is — what shall'we say our*occupation is? So many of them, like! Ilka Chase, are involved in a. considerable number of different fields. Miss Chase, for example, is ah actress, author, TV panelist ("Masquerade Party"), lecturer, fashion'ex- pert and poodle fancier. : So she generally puts down her occupation as ""housewife^" • She's; just back -from :.Holly- vood. where'she had a small but meaty part in "The Big Knife," a film which slashes Hollywood mercilessly. "And I have TV to .thank for the part, I think;" she says. ."I'm ure I wouldn't. have gotten it except that somebody saw me on Masquerade -Party' and thought 'd fit: it. These TV panel shdws are wonderful for_ actors—it's a ort'of'ad,for/yourself, and an ad that you get paid for; too." At . the moment, housewife Jhase is back as author Chase, putting the'. finishing .; touches to novel;called "The. Island Play_-s." It's the seventh book in a vriting career that began after she was.a.successful,actress and radio star. Somebody 'suggested she. should write a book and she did. While she was talking, a poodle reclined peacefully in her lap.

Candidates who successfully complete pre-flight school but who subsequently fail in flight training will be required to serve a period of three years as aviation ground officers, this period to be computed from the original date of commissioning.' •- • . Those who "are disenrolled from the' program prior to commissioning will be required to remain on active duty for two years. as a medium performance car was secondary: We were satisfied with a 50-mile-an-hour,id'speed on;.land because anything more might have interferred with its performance as a plane," ; . .'

The ski, like Jhe-landing gear, will be fully retractable. . Coleman says he expects wide acceptance of-- the t>lane by, industrial firms looking for a versatile executive aircraft. "We plan to concentrate oh,this market first," he! said, "but the Aeromarine will appeal also to the weekend pilot who flies for pleasure for, sport."

He is J. F. (Skeets) Coleman, and he has incorporated some of the; features of the vertical takeoff plane in the new combination auto-plane. Called the, Aeromarine, the new. craft has a delta wing "of 43 degrees swcepback. Coleman became familiar with the delta wings advantages as engineering test pilot for the Convair Division of | General Dynamics Corp. He was assigned to the vertical takeoff f i g h t e r designed by the Navy XFYi but better .known as the Pogo. In November 1954, Coleman became the first human being, to make a transitional flight from vertical takeoff to level flight and back down to a vertical "tail-sitting" landing in the Pogo. He was chosen the outstanding aviator of the year and awarded the 1955 Harmon International Trophy. • A 215-horsepower Franklin engine driving a pusher propeller mounted above the wing, aft of the cabin, will power the Aeromarine. It will have a range of 800 miles on 80 gallons of fuel and a top' speed of 225 miles an hour. Cruising speed, with a payload of four to five passengers, will be 200 miles an hour. Wingspan will be 25 feet and overall length 18 feet. For operation as an automobile, the wing will fold twice on each side, near the fuselage and just inboard of the twin vertical fins. As a car the width will be 65 inches. "The primary consideration in the Aeromarine was to design a good airplane that could operate off land or water," Coleman says.
