S. fat. OH.) : By PHTLLIS BAnELLE LONDON — (INS) - Unlike the American taxi driver, who is forthright and fearless sometimes to obscenity, the British hackie is a man of tolerance. Even in times fjf stress, when the world about him is. honking, he is genteel. "Pardon me, Madame," said one who was driving me genteelly through Piccadilly, "but someone keeps blowing at me, and I rehlly don't quite know why.' 1 He stopped the cab, strolled pleasantly to its rear, discussed the matter with the horn-tooter, and returned. "It was nothing at all, Madame," he said. "The gent-man only wished me to move a bit faster. My fault entirely." Now this attitude of politeness would possibly lead a man to sudden death in New York City, but here it leaves everyone smilingly placid. There is a moral in this somewhere,-but after a couple of days in London, one is too relaxed and lagy to dig it up. The London cabbie is similar to the U. S. cabbie in that he is eager to inform the passenger of what is going on. This man, whose name was John Lindley, was especially interested in the popular TV program, "What's My Line?" (British version)—a topic that New York and California mm mm Amtrlca't larg*il Stlling TOILET TANK BALL Noijy running toilets can waste- over. 1000 gallons of water a day.

It's ' quite amusing, the highlight of Sunday night, actually," he explained, chuckling with the memory of a recent show. "There is a panel of what they call experts. These are people who have been in the news quite a lot—not obscure people, by any means— and they must meet other people who appear before them and try to guess what these people do to make a shilling." Well, 'they pick "all sorts of queer things." One man may be a tub bottom maker, and another may be a sock bottom knocker. "You know, amusing things like that, that you wouldn't expect the experts to guess up ever 'tall.*'. The amazing part, said Lindley, tooting his horn pleasantly at a bicycle rider, is the'panel of experts guesses up to 60 per cent of the professions. "They even had that sock bottom knocker — right speedy, too." After agreeing with the driver that this was quite a feat and betting that they would never guess him as a cabbie (he blushed modestly), I asked if the British .TV had a program called "The $64,000 Question." , "No, Madame, we don't, but we have another one which is rather fun, called 'Have a Go'." In "Have a Go," he explained, contestants win money for giving the correct answers, to tricky questions. For the first question, they get-a half-crown (35" cents); for the second, it's five shillings (70 cents); 3rd, 15 bob ($2.10); and 32 shillings ($4.48) for the last. "It really adds up, you see," said Lindley, "arid there's a big question for-the-'person who answers the most questions correctly. If he gets it, he goes home with a big jar of marmalade or something of that sort besides all the money." ' Lindley dropped me off then. The last I saw he was wedged among cars, smiling beatifically. Dreaming — rehlly no doubt about it—of money and marmalade. 'In spite of the growth of synthetic fibers, about 70 per cent of U. S. textile needs are still supplied by cotton. —ADVERTISEMENT— —ADVERTISEMENT— SLEEP TONIGHT WITHOUT ARTHRITIC PAIN or your money bach Take PHUVO tablets as directed today.

It is the creation of a husband nd wife team of radio-television roducers named Walter and Peg tfcGraw. In preparing their show n wanted criminals they draw on wide experience in crime and pen- logy acquired in preparing many revious programs. "There's a lot of misunderstand- ng and glamorizing of crime," ays McGraw. ''Actually it's a ordid business. The people iri- olved in it are seldom the movie angster type. .They're troubled eople, poor people. The. average riminal is far from being a happy man. ... No Born Criminals "I don't think there's any such hing as 'a born criminal. What nakes a man a criminal? The more we understand the circum- tances the better we understand •hat makes him tick." The McGraws' philosophy of rime and criminals is, ably ramatized on "Wanted." The camera eye of ".Wanted" is penetrating one. it sweeps irough slums and stares down rim alleys .and peers into the all-bedroom lives that fringe the •orld of crime. It's as concerned 'ith the victims of crime as •ith criminals themselves. .... ".We don't pretend to be experts n crime," says 'McGraw: "We appen to be reporters .with many ontacts in the field developed ver a time." Over the course of time they've oaned money to almost 100 former onvicts who. are trying . to go traight. "All but two have paid >ack the money." says McGraw. These men obviously have de- ided that crime doesn't pay. Any- ne who looks at "Wanted" would ave to come to the same con- lusion. Studio One Anniversary Comedians come and comedians :o, but some of the best television rama shows continue forever. Toight Studio One (CBS-TV) cele- rates its seventh anniversary be- ore the .video audience. This evening's drama is "Shake- own Cruise," a drama about a avy crew trapped in a crippled ubmarine at the bottom of the ea. The first Studio One program —on Nov. 7, 1948—was "The torm," starring Margaret Sulla- an. In that time 327 dramas have een produced. ions To Hear Singers The Boys' Chorus of Fort Hill ligh School under the direction of [arold Hanson will present a pro- ram at the meeting of the Cum- erland Lions Club on Wednesday t noon at Central Y.M.C.A.

' L rs Paul Scotl> 1U Virginia! Harry Salter was the musical cn-j ^ ve . j{ rs rector on the show, and saw and g^jj anc j admired the pretty little gal with the big eyes. He arranged for a date—on the' pretext that the show hospitably took out-of-town guests for a night cut—and she said, "You were lucky you didn't have to take out the fat man who played the piano with gloves on," and" he. said, "'This is strictly a date, dopey," and so they were married. Mitzi Gaynor Patrice Munsel It's fun and exciting. I end each show by lacking off my shoes and singing the "Italian Streetsong" in bare feet. One night I kicked too far and one shoe landed in the lap of a customer. He refused to give it back and a battle ensued with a waiter. He finally gave it up—and I was relieved because the shoe was especially made and cost $75. Sincerely, ' PATRICE • Two nights a week, Harry Salter stays home and plays 'Chamber music. That's because he doesn't get enough musical kick out of what he" does for his very good living. Sailer's career started as a fiddle player. Then he was an orchestra leader and finally got into radio. He 'was musical director of "Pot of Gold," and got the idea that led to "Stop the Music," the big 'giveaway of pre-War 'days. He owned one-fifth of "Stop the Music," which wasn't hay—it was money. When "Stop the Music" . ended, Salter says, "I went looking for a job. But people laughed and nobody would hire me. They all said that I was filthy rich. I was, but I still wanted a job. So I had to invent u new show." What he invented was ''Name That Tune." He's now producer, with Jane Douglass White-as -his assistant producer, and Salter is strictly an executive these days. He doesn't even lead the band, which accounts for those semiweekly chamber music sessions in his home. "Tales of Hoffman" on opening night, Nov. 14. gets a private kick' out of the furious uproar that TVJ and movies show so much violence! they cause juvenile delinquency. He says opera is so violent it makes the others look like taffy pulls. This, Tucker relates, is what happens to' him in his various roles: In "Tales of Hoffman," he ends up dead drunk; in "Andrea Chenier," he's decapitated at the guillotine: in "The Masked Ball," he's stabbed; in "Tosca," he's treacherously executed; in "La Juive," he's boiled-in oil; in "U Trovatore," he's hanged: in "Cav- allerie Rusticana," he's stabbed in a duel; in "Lucia di Larrimer- moor,' 'he stabs himself: in "Norma," he's burned to death; in "Samson and • Delilah," his eyes are burned out. Yet nobody ever says opera corrupts youth. Maybe because he's singing in the boiling oil, that takes the curse off it.
