The cities' attorneys obviously were surprised when Nemeyer testified on cross examination several weeks ago that Southwestern Bell needed an increase ol around three million dollars above its former rates — those in effect before the bonded Increase was made •— to give it a return of 6.3 per tent on a rate base of some 40 million dollars. Questioning of Nemeyer developed that Andersen and Company *»« charging J17,5M for its services in the rate case.

She rented a Brentwood mansion fois, the summer and the swimming pool looked lonely. So she bought a couple of ducks and called them Mllard and Qrover, nfirr the 13th and 22nd U. S. Presidents. Now her house guest is sick In bed with a virus which the doctor says may have cen carried by the ducks. Then there is her French poodle. He was named Apry because he was supposed to be apricot-colored. One elbow turned out that way. The rest of the dog Is a washed- out white. The co-star of "Your Show of Shows" is spending her vacation 'com TV In a liuite home that once )clonHc<! to MUlon Sills. "The •ooms are so bipt they make my ears pop." says the constantly be- eapruered Miss Coca, who is here with her hu.sbjmd, Robert Burton. Why did she come to California? That's another example of the :oca complex. "I knew our producer, Max Leib- Tiari, was coming out here, r/id I bought Sid (Cae.sar) would too," he explains. "I thought it would a wonderful opportunity to plan ext season's snows. So then Sid ccided to RO to Westport, Conn, on the day I arrived, Max eft town for 12 days'" But there was another reason or her journey. She wanted to ome back to Hollywood as a wln- er. "I had played here twice he- ore," she remarked, "and both mes was not too successful. The rst time was when I was appear- IIIK with Jules MunsMn »s part of George Olson's show at the Palomar dance palace. It burned down the week after we left. "Then about five years ago, I appeared at a place on the Strip called La Papillon. It wasn't a very good engagement; the audience was too chic or something. Anyway, the place went broke a few weeks after I left." See what I menu about things happening to Imogene? The comedienne is more subdued than her TV personality. , and a Kood deal prettier in person. May- Ije Is the California tan. We discussed the plans for "Your Show of Shows" in the fall. "It's going to be much different," she said. "I don't know all the changes, because Max hasn't made up his mind yet. But he is lining up some bit? Hollywood names to appear with us. and we will have some new gimmicks. Most of the supporting acts will i not be back, except as occasional I visitors."
