"Yes," says • 18-year-old Gene Paul of Miami Beach, "provided •it-Is kept^a simple game and not a point for boasting on the parents part." . The youngsters who regard it favorably agreew'.ith Donald J. Boatright, 16,. of Nashville', ,Tenn., that" "it helps develop tomorrow's players." "It is an organized start to appreciating sports," says Sheryl' Cummings, 15, of Vermil- liorr, S. D. Those who disapprove feel parents put too much emphasis ' on it or, as 17-year-old Larry Fisher of Brooklyn says, "the tension is too great for the kids."

She makes a pretty picture there. Comedy records are so popular now that comedians are more interested in a long-playing album than a long-playing ' engagement at a top night club. Frank D'Amore is a young, .sophisticated comic who figured a record was just what he needed. So he invested $450, cut a tape with a friend, Danny Davis. Then he peddled the tape to record companies. Warwick bought it, put it out as."The Egghead and I," and it's beginning to attrai attention. That's a cheaper and more effective way of self-promotion than taking a few ads in the trade publications. Pretty Sunny. Gale was approached by-,,a record company. Since she was already under contract to one, she was curious. They said they'd give her more money than she was getting, so she agreed to meet for a conference. • Her first question was what kind of songs they had in mind for her. "Songs? We don't want you to sing. We want you to pose for our album covers." * * * DICK'S PICKS: Jimmy Jones has a .cute record, -"Ee-I-Ee-I- Oh!" on Cub.
