San Francisco Opera company. lessons at Municipal airport at Des Moines. Actress Views Radio, Stage and Film Worlds Eve March, who came to radio viav Hollywood and Broadway, draws a provocative parallel between radio and motion pictures, with the theater the third--and remote--point of the triangle. The lovely Miss March, heard frequently as Miss Perkins un NBC's daily serial John's Other Wife, tells us that while radio and pictures are closely associated technically, there is a vast difference between them and the theater. "There is very little difference," Miss March says, "between a broadcast and a movie 'take', as far as acting is concerned. Voice projection, which is so integral a part of the theater where one must play in the back row, has no place in either radio or pictures, because the microphone and camera bring the audience within a few feet of the actor and encourage a subtlety that is impossible to achieve on the stage." Miss March was born in Hollywood and, as she says, "So was my father before me." She began her career in vaudeville and later was seen in such motion pictures as "Trouble Shooters" and "She 'Married Her Boss," before she came on to New York for the theater and radio. SONG WRITERS "MOON-STRUCK" So Says Maestro Lombai'do, Naming Several Tunes as Notable Examples. Song writers are slUl moonstruck,.Guy Lombardo, the famous band maestro, finds. Lombai'do, whose program on CBS Sundays from 4:30 to 5 p. in., has just been renewed, discovers after a bit of sleuthing that the word "moon" is still holding its own as a theme for popular music. "Like 'Moon Over Miami,' 'Rocky Mountain Moon' a n d 'Moonlight on the Ganges' of seasons past, there has been no hit in the past five months to equal 'Chapel in the Moonlight.'" said the maestro. "Other song subjects may run to cycles, but the songwriters never get over being monn struck." Consistently accorded highest dance band honors in national polls, the Lombardo band, thinks Guy, owes its continued popularity to non-deviation from an individual style which he originated 10 years and more ago when his aggregation first came to national attention. In his spring scries just starting, Guy wiJ] continue with such popular weekly features as the "Favorite Five," comprised of the five songs most requested during the week preceding the program; morrow," in which Guy introduces a number never before on the air; and leading songs from musical Talk on Badminton to Be Heard Sunday Ralph Dieckmann will be heard ~- ... 0 ,,....,. u .i.w.jn.m.i C...U ,jio on Decker Brothers sports review mother a singer.

Radio Sign Language Practiced in Studios Directors' and Announcers*. Devise System to End Programs on Time. By RADIO RAMBLER You ana every other radio listener has at some time wondered how a radio program packed with comedy, music, drama and commercial announcements can be induced to end 'exactly on the second. Careful planning and a strange-looking sign language comprise the two-fold answer to this. A network program is supposed to begin ten seconds after the hour and end ten seconds before the hour, and a good program director likes to hit the time right on the nose. Baffling' Language. He does it with a sign language of his own--a sign language which would baffle any Indian.' When the director holds three fingers in the air and places his finger to his nose, lie is not giving the program the Bronx cheer--it's his method of telling those in the program that there are three minutes left to the program. Ask for Applause. When he raises his hands as though to applaud, it is the signal for the audience to "Clap, please," meaning enforced appreciation. When pointing directly to the engineer in the control room, he means "fade on the nose," which to the layman means end the program exactly on the dot. Holding his finger to his Ihronl is the announcer's manner of saying to the actors that the program is running long and part of the script must be omitted. Scripts are marked with bits that can be cut without harm to the program. These are only a tew tricks ot the trade in the radio world, a world becoming increasinly important in the field of entertainment.

Throat Infection Is Cause for Failure of Nelson Eddy to Sing Nelson "Eddy was prcvcntct from appearing on his weekly "Open House" program for the second time last Sunday by the throat infection that has confined him to a Chicago hospital.

J. L. Rawlinson, producer of the program, wired Joseph Bentonelli in Texas, where the Metropolitan tenor is now on a concert tour, and asked him to substitute. Bentonelli flew to Chicago immediately to take over his friend's Sunday night assignment, although he had to return to Texas at the conclusion of the broadcast.

In his wistful way, Joe will contribute to the musical portion o£ the program by singing "I'm a Butcher's Boy."
