TELEGRAF GIFT SERVICE WILL START IN SPRING Hailed as Boon to Late Minute Shoppers New York, Feb. 6 Special A boon to last minute shoppers was announced at a press conference here today by Telegif t. Inc. Daniel N. Sangster, vice president of the new company, said Telegift will bring stores thruout the country as near to every customer as his telephone. It will be available to the public this spring in time to aid them with Mother s day purchases. 1 Un&ef the Telegift service, Sangster said, should you remember that Aunt Minnie, who lives across the country, is celebrating her birthday on the following day, you can still get a gift to her in time. All you need do is pick up your telephone and ask for Western Union or go to any Western Union office. You gic the Western Union operator your message and gift selection which can be found in catalogs distributed thru their offices and the name and address of the recipient. That's all there is to it. Sends Parcel Gift Wrapped Western Union telegrafs the message and the instructions to its office in the recipient's city. This office advises the cooperating department store to deliver the merchandise, gift wrapped, and immediately notifies the recipient to expect delivery. The customer. Sangster said, pays only the Western Union charge for the gift telegram and Ihe established retail price for the gift he selects. Western Union bills him for the telegram; Telegift bills him for the merchandise. There is no additional charge to the customer for Telegift service. There is a 15 per cent deduction from the retail price of the gift which constitutes Telegift's income. Variety of Gifts The gif merchandise to be offered by the Telegift service ranges in price from $4 to $40. Some of the gifts that can be obtained include electric appliances, candy, compacts, silverware, rec ords, toiletries, and cosmetics. . Telegift is a credit and not a charge account service, Sangster said. It is the result of two years planning by leaders in the merchandising and advertising fields, he said. U. S. rui$er's Helicopter Rescues British Flyer San Francisco, Feb. 6 (P) A helicopter from the American cruiser St. Paul rescued a British pilot yesterday from the waters of Inchon harbor, a navy spokesman said today. The flyer was Lt. M. rinsent, attached to the British carrier Theseus, down with engine trouble. 1 liter, t.P.uom g SUMUU THE NAME. DROPPER: That Doktor Putzi Sczerbowski, " the eminent Polish composer," is fictitious, and the "critique" under his by-line in the current American Mercury extolling the voice of Margaret Truman is a thinly veiled rib. . . . When Jack Brickhouse received the TV Forecast " Oscar " for network sportscasting, he had to go thru the acceptance routine twice first on his local Chicago Calendar, and again on his cabled wrestling stint. " Now I know how Andy Phillip felt," recalled Brickhouse, A George Imtl mm V r. Ltif Andrews Jack BriekhonM " when I was assigned to give the Illini Whiz Kid his Most Valuable Player award in 1943. I gave it to him six different times in as many places, from Urbana to Andy's home town. Granite City. The kid got so he'd automatically hand it back to me every time I handed it to him. I had quite a time convincing him on the sixth presentation that it was his for keeps." I GEORGE JESSEL isn't one to drop bright sayings of kiddies Into his story telling, but he just had to get this off his proud, parental chest. Before leaving Hollywood for Chicago last week, Jeftfcel visited his former wife, Lois Andrews, and their daughter, 9 year old Jerrilyn. " Daddy," pouted the child, " don't you love mother any more? " "I like your mother very much," protested Jessel. " Don't you love me? " persisted Jerrilyn. I love you more every day," soothed George. " Then," accused the Hollywood moppet, " why don't you send our alimony check sooner? " "I7ITH almost every jobbing musician in the local working at another trade or business during the day, it remained for Emil De Salvi, band man about town, to finally shelve his music vocation when his odd-hour avocation paid off higher than the union scale. De Salvi has perfected a frozen pizza pie, six fanciful fillings, for the television viewing home trade. Should the neighborhood pizzeria vanish thru vidoo along with the movie theater, we doubt if any former pizza eater would show the ingratitude of a certain Cleveland housewife. This lady recently won the bank night jackpot at her local cinema. Asked how she intended to spend the money, she replied, " I'm going to buy a television set so I won't have to go to the movies anymorff." She'll be back. CEEKERS of that electric mixer awarded by The Tribune for seven subscriptions, should try to get the business of John Piatt, magicjan in the Gay 90s room of the La Salle hotel. Piatt uses four Tribunes nightly in performing his paper tree making trick. It's the only newspaper voluminous enough to work the stunt. " You go ' From Trees to Tribunes,' " Piatt reminded us. " I reverse the procedure." t TJOWARD McKAY calls our attention to present day acrobats, without s troupe of which no television variety show would be complete. " Today's acrobat begins where the old timers finished," says McKay, who was quite a tumbler in his time. A breathtaking illustration of McKay's observation are " The Trojans," Keith Anderson of Fenger High school and James Belfuss and Peter Dopudja, both of Bowen. The prep trio was a last minute booking for Bob Hope's recent Cerebral Palsy benefit show at Urbana, and they so amazed ol' Scoot Snoot that he took them along for his Chanute field show. Now the boys, under Hope's sponsorship, are on their way to the big time, but such is the curse of the acrobat, they'll always open the show. TSADORE MOIDEL, our west coast contact man, advises us not to come to Hollywood for the annual Motion Picture academy award show. " You'll only waste your time," writes Izzy. " From the ever mounting number of week-end drunks in Los Angeles, I can tell you now that the winner probably will be a big white rabbit." TRUMAN'S NAME USED BY YOUNG TO GET RFC JOB Washington, Feb. 6 (JP) E. Merl Young, accused by a senate committee of having claimed "special influence" with officials of the Reconstruction Finance ""corporation, used President Truman as a reference when he got a job with the RFC in 1945, an official of the lending agency said tonight. The White House, advised of what the RFC records show on the point, said Mr. Truman does not remember having agreed to that use of his name, but would have agreed to it if he had been asked. Vaughan Listed, Too The RFC official, who asked not to be quoted by name, said Young listed these references in his application for government work: President Truman, Gen. H. H. Vaughan actually Vaughan is a major general, Presidential military aide; Matthew J. Connelly, secretary to the President; Leslie L. Biffle, secretary of the senate, and Lt. Col., J. W. Norris, marine corps. Biffle told a reporter he knew Young, tho not well, and did not remember recommending him. Joseph Short, White House press secretary, told reporters: "The President states that he has no recollection of having given consent for use of his name, but that, if he had been asked to he would have said ' yes.' Mr. Young is a Missourian whom the President had known in Missouri and, in 1945, was just back from fighting with the marines." Young Says Nothing Young himself declined to discuss anything irt connection with the report of a senate banking subcommittee which reported allegations of favoritism and influence in RFC lending of g overnment money. He is an insurance broker now. He was a sort of major domo for the Democratic national committee on Vice President Barkley's political tour of the country last fall. His wife is a White House stenografer. GIRL. 19. ASSAULTED Miss Joyce Upton. 19.

FINDS CHANCES OF IMPEACHING TRUMAN SLIGHT Chicago TribaBS Praia Service Washington, Feb. 6 Rep. Scrivner R., Kan. told his constituents tonight, there is little chance of impeaching President Truman and State Secretary Acheson. "Many letters have been received urging impeachment of Acheson yes, and of -Mr. Truman," Scrivner said in a news letter. "The Constitution provides for impeachment of civil officers not for incompetency or ineptitude but for, and on conviction of treason, bribery or other high crimes and misdemeanors. " In the history of the United States, 12 impeachment proceedings have been instituted. The one President involved, Andrew John son, was acquitted. One cabinet member was acquitted. Of the nine federal judges sought to be impeached, one resigned, four were acquitted and four were found guilty. Once when an impeachment of a senator was begun, it was held impeachment did not lie since he was not a civil officer. "From these figures and the constitutional provisions, you can see why there was, and is, little prospect of ever getting a conviction on impeachment against either Acheson or Truman."
