Drum mo/or finds job that lust suits to a T ANAHEIM (UPI)-What kind o£ a- job would suit a football- playing drum major to a T? Entertainment director at Disneyland, what else! And that's precisely what Tommy Walker is. For who else would have the knowledge, courage and stamina to play general to an army of Disney characters, staff musicians and a half-dozen famous guest bands? Walker, 42, who resembles actor William Holden, takes the job in stride. He actually seems to thrive on the pressure of being in a dozen places at one time. Oversees Road Shows As an example. Walker recently has added a new task, overseeing Disney road shows throughout the country. In April-May, it was the St. Louis police show; next week it'll be the Memorial Day Indianapolis 500-mile race parade; House group votes to curb base closure WASHINGTON (UPI) — The House Ai-med Services Committee today voted to curb Defense Secretary Robert S. McNamara's powers to shut down military bases in the future. The committee, however, rejected a proposal to make its action retroactive to block shutdown of facilities that McNa mara already has announced will be closed. In effect, the committee's action would permit either the House or Senate to vote on future planned closings. The committee acted on the politically sensitive issue through amendments in approving a bill to authorize $1.9 billion worth of miUtary construe- tion during tlie 12 months starting July 1. and earlier it was the Canadian National Exposition m Toronto and the Radio City Music Hall. 'We've had hundreds of requests for appearances by Disney characters," Walker says, 'so we decided to see what would happen. We've been very successful in the three experiments we've tried. We only produce the Disney portion of the shows, using local talent as the Disney characters—except for Mickey Mouse — that's Walt's baby. Walt said: 'Don't forget, Mickey's the one that made all this possible.' " Composer, Too Walker oversees the annual big band festival at Disneyland and much more. Thus, he has little time to do much composing—a talent developed in his college years. During his college career, Walker was a drum major at the University of Southern California and a place kicker on the Trojan team that met Michigan in the 1948 Rose Bowl. After graduation, he became :lirector of the Trojan band. He resigned 10 years ago to work for Disney. Walker wrote "Charge" for Trojans. It later became the bugle call for fans of the Los Angeles Dodgers and Angels. He also teamed up with Bob LJnn to write the "March of the Olympians," official theme of the 1960 Winter Olympics at Squaw Valley, Calif. CARNIVAL By Dick Turner SEWING TIP NEW YORK (UPI) — Throw away only the tiny bits of sewing scraps until after your garment is finsihed, suggests the sewing machine division of tlie Japan Light Machinery Information Bureau. Your may want to use the larger pieces for mailing accessories like a purse, a headband, trim for a sweater, hat orj blouse. These extra pieces of fabric, properly used, can convert a garment into a costume at no extra cost. "Bui; I did only make one call;' like you safdl.I told. JaniA to' have the gangcaU'inel" Comedy records drop in popularity from peak By VERNON SCOTT UPI Hollywood Correspondent HOLLYWOOD (UPI) —Comedy records reached their apogee about five years ago and have since plummeted with the speed of a misfire at Cape Kennedy. In 1960 and 1961 party-goers inevitably listened raptly as their hosts spun records by Bob Newhart, Shelly Berman, Mort Sahl, Jonathan Winters and Bill Dana, among the more popular comedians who had immortalized theu- humor on wax. Now the discs could be used for targets at a skeet shoot. Has New Album At the moment there is a slight stir about Newhart's latest pressing, an album titled "The Windmills are Weaken- mg," which has made the musical charts of the recording trade papers. But comedian Newhart is not DIGGING IT NEW YORK (UPI) — Teenagers dig a lot of things but Senior Girl Scouts from five southern states dig just a bit more. Each summer smce 1958, a selected group of girls has participated in Project "Archy" —a two-week archeological dig on Sand Mountain near Albertville, Ala. The project draws girls from Arkansas, Tennessee, Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama. BEATNIKS ALLOWED PROVINCETOWN, Mass. (UPI) — What is a "beatnik?" Whatever "beatniks" are, they'll be permitted at this widely known resort this summer. A group of citizens had petitioned the selectmen to keep out what they called "beatniks" this year. However, a lengthy debate failed to produce a clear meaning of the term. holding his breath. He doubts if the disc will outsell his first album, "The Button Down Mind." He thinks the day of best-selling comedy records is over. "Comedy records are sold mostly to the cults now," he explained. "There's a bedrock of 150,000 fans or so who still buy them. But my first one sold 900,000. And I understand Allen Sherman's biggest record sold more than 2 million. "But who knows when recorded comedy will hit again. Can't Tell Jokes "The difficulty is you can't sit down and write humor for recording. You can't sell albums just telling jokes. It won't work, as Jack Benny and Bob Hope discovered. "With me and Shelly and Sahl the listener can play the record five or six times and hear new things with each playing. But nobody wants to hear the same joke twice, much less a half-dozen times." Newhart attempts to combine a funny premise (the driving instructor) with a comic attitude, then bind them together in a vignette with which the audience can identify. "I try to hold a mirror up to life, and maybe make a comment — satirical or otherwise on the way people think and behave," he said.
