HONOLULU, (#)--The mysterious case of a naval officer's wife who insists she was criminally assaulted after a party caused Hawaiian officials to act swiftly Wednesday to forestall possible congressional criticism.

Joseph Poindexler to cable all details' to Washington, J3 C They requested that the Hawaiian delegate, Samuel King, be supplied both Mrs. Bennett S. Copping's account and the official findings.

That was only a -few hours after a Sunday party at the Copping apartment in which she, another woman and two naval men participated while her husband, a submarine commander, was asleep.

RADIO RAMBLER "RADIO AUDITIONS" NEW AND NOVEL KGLO FEATURE Watch for KGLO's first "Radio Auditions" of the air, in an unique and entertaining feature to be broadcast over the local radio station at 9:30. These auditions are not amateur contests in any sense but merely serve as auditions for the purpose o£ discovering talent which may be used on future KGLO programs. If anyone is interested in becoming an announcer, featured soloist, dramatic artist or there is a vocal ensemble desiring a spot on these auditions, applications may now be made at the studios located in the Hotel Hanford. "Kadio Auditions" are to be broadcast each Thursday evening at 9:30, w i t h ' A n n o u n c e r "Uncle Nick" Schecl in charge. THREE LITTLE WORDS 'THREE LITTLE WORDS" ARE SOUTHERN GIRLS The "Three Little Words" that go with the music of Phil Spitalny's orchestra are Mary Baum, Frances Cook and Joan Brooks. Those three southern girls vocalizing, under the name of "Three Little Words" in Phil Spitalny's Hour of Charm over WHO every Monday at' 3, p.' m., carry their harmony into their private life. They are darJc-haired, as are al! the girls in Phil Spitalny's band, they dress alike, are partial to the same dishes, live 'together and share everything but one another's beau. They had even joined forces at a Philadelphia radio station before auditioning for the Spitalny unit. The "Three Liftle Words" are Mary Baum, first soprano, of Baltimore; Frances Cook, second soprano, of Shreveport, La., 'and Joan Brooks, contralto, o£ Oklahoma City. Frances and Joan had been singing on stage and over radio in duets when they heard Mary's voice on t h e ' air. They wired her to suggest an audition together and that's how these "Three Little Words" got together, o * * "Elolienu," Hie Hebrew ritualistic sons, is one of the selections to be featured by Joe Emerson and his "Hymns of All Churches" choir over WCCO from 9 (o 10 o'clock Thursday morning. o o * PROF. W. H. KILPATRICK TO DISCUSS SPEECH ON AIR Problems encountered by edu- tors in the teaching o£ speech will be discussed by Prof. William H. Kilpatrick of Columbia university Teachers college when he speaks over the Columbia network Thursday from 2:30 to 2:45 in connection with the sixth annual Rocky Mountain speech conference. The conference is being held on the campus of the University of Denver at Denver, Colo., from Feb. 18 to 20, with hundreds of school executives, teachers,. students and speakers in attendance. Universities and colleges from the surrounding -slates will be represented at the conference. * * » Two basketball programs'will be broadcast at 5:15 Thursday on Iowa stations, a basketball survey to be held on (he air from WOI at Ames while a discussion of "Who's Who'in Hlsli School Basketball" -will be held over WMT al Waterloo at the same hour. * o t * Alexander Woollcoff, in his regular ^broadcast Thursday will speak over WCCO from 6:30 to 6:45. Woollcott will bring to the microphone, another gay parade of anecdotes, comment and reports on books, politics and personalities. Phil Baker will bring back his first girl stooge, Estelle Jayne, for his two broadcasts from Florida later this month. Estelle supported the accordion-comic on his NEC Friday night series before he shifted to CBS for his Sunday show. · Fred Allen makes many ot his best sallies spontaneously after his broadcast has ended. Friends often hang around the studio for no other purpose than to hear the wisecracking comedian get things off his chest. When Fred gets mad, Jie's funnier than ever. Those who look askance at the bulk of some of our more recent novels will be surprised to learn that each Fred Astaire show requires more than 500 sheets of paper. Fred's own script runs an average of 40 pages and Johnny Green's scores cover an additional 475. Ed Wynn deserves the men: . icker of radio's Santa Glaus. Among the microphone headliners whom he has helped to get their starts in show business are Fred Astaire, Phil Baker,' Morton Downey, Ruth Etting, Don Voorhees, Walter O'Keefe and Charlie Butlerworth.

The car ahead that you are going to push should be in HIGH gear, with the clutch pedal DOWN. If possible, get in position where one side of the car behind is about in line with center of the car ahead. This helps if bumpers lock. Car with bumper on top should try to get f over the edge of a curb or other high spot that lifts bumper and permits parting. Or the same thing can be accomplished if car with bumper on bottom is maneuvered to a low drain or other depression in the street. Tell your friend not to let his clutch pedal up until you actually have his car MOVING. At best this is han.- on your car, but it is a friendly act that you would not deny a fellow motorist marooned by cold. He has troubles enough of his own . , , with a freshly-killed battery . . . flooded engine . . . and sheepish feeling--to say nothing of wasted gasoline.
