Teaaco, CBS Joan Blonde}], Alan Ladd and Laird Creg'ar are brought to the "Radio Theater" Monday night on KGLO-CBS, for the leading parts in the gripping drama, "This Gun for Hire." The broadcast is from 8 to 9, produced by the great DeMille of Hollywood. La Blondell is the gal in the story, of course, and Ladd carries on in his now-famed role of the youthful killer. It was this characterization that caused a nation's feminine movie-going audience to rave over Alan. Crcgar, the 300-pounder, takes the same part he had in the Jilm version. He will make you h-a-t-e him -- grr! Only Miss Blondell is new to the drama; Veronica Lake it was who starred in the picture. The plot concerns a killer double-crossed by the man who has hired him to do the dirty work. The gunman is out for revenge but meets the girl at that juncture. Called one of the most unusual crime dramas ever put to film, "This Gun for Hire" is also billed as a clinical analysis of a killer's 5 Educators to Scrutinize Nazi System On the tenth anniversary ot Hitleristn four brilliant loaders of contemporary thinking join Chair- D.

Shirer, ace CBS news commentator and foreign correspondent, is heard regularly Sunday at 4:45 p. m. with his weekly news review and comment.

There's no way I can answer those letters, cither, without shattering the illusion I've worked so hard to create. Therefore, I guess 1'lt go along being just a mean, old man to those letter writers." P. S. Those same letter writers wouldn't recognize Stafford were they to meet him. He's one ot the mildest fellows in radio. "Take It or Leave It" Home of $64 Question That favorite Sunday night quiz time, "Take It or Leave It," comes to KGLO-CBS listeners from 3 to 9:30. This is the home ot the 64-dol!nr question. ' Contestants strive for the top money, making it as often as they fall by the wayside. Phil Baker is the maestro o£ "Take It." It's probably safe to soy that this veteran vnudevillian and radio comic has never before derived so much personal enjoyment from a show as from this one. GKACIE Burns. He'll tell you that Gracie ' great actress' on the set or at a microphone. But once tho j threshold o£ home separates her from the world's champion dumbbell, she is the least actressy woman George knows. Actually, when Burns and Allen first formed their partnership, Gracie was to be "straight man." That was in 1925 when tho team planned for Gracie to ask questions solemnly, so George would get the laughs. But her antics soon had the customers in hysterics. The routine was reversed. After 21 years of knowing her, George has had Gracie's inanities constantly before him in professional life, but not at home. "Gracie reads books, bakes cakes and ties up the telephone, just like any other woman," is George's summation.

There's a strong elemcn of suspense throughout. The ''Screen Guild" play be heard on KGLO-CBS Monday night from 9 to 9:30. Speaking of the popular conductor, Kostelanetz has won new honors by capturing high places in the annual New York World- Telegram radiu poll. Andre placed in (he "pop" field and third in the symphonic division. Only the New York Philharmonic and the NBC symphony finished ahead of Kostelanetz in the lonn-haircd department. "Kosty" will make a guest appearance with a symphony next Thursday. He will wield the baton over the St. Louis orchestra. * ¥ * Kostelanetz has his opinions about music, quite naturally. He loints out that no one knows how ong the swing vogue will last, but Americans will always favor dreamy, romantic songs in the long run. "Songs ot the heart and o£ dreams have held first place ever since the days of George Washington," Andre says. "In 1778, 'He Stoic My Tender Heart' was sung just as much as 'I Had the Craziest Dream' is today. "Not a year has passed since the turn of the century," s"ays Kostelanetz, "that a dreamy song hasn't been one o£ the hits of the year. They're remembered long after the so-called hot songs." Just a couple of years back\ Kosty recalls, one week's "Hi t Parade" included "I've Got a Pocketful of Dreams," "I've Got will! a Date wiih a Dream," and "When Max Marcin, author of KGLO- CBS' "Crime Doctor," once won n $10,000 prize for the best short story of the year. Among his rivals for the award were Jack London and Rudyard Kipling.

Th soldier members o£ the club said Go a-Dreamii that they took 16 Kayo records. which the band leader had sent them, into Africa with them. That's carrying a good thing pretty far. Bob Hawk Is Nativelowan, Proud of It! You may have heard once upon time that Bob Hawk, the master uiz-man of "Thanks to the Yanks" (KGLO-CBS, Saturday, :30 p. m.), is a native lowan. Yes, this brainy expert and vet;ran of radio saw the light first t Creston, la. He and his parents ived there five years after the atal event. Then they moved to Oklahoma, where Bob received his education. But, younc as he was when Hie move \vas made, Hawk has his memories of Creston and Iowa. His first public appearance is one of the more vivid ones. He was about three years old. His brief showinc was before a holiday audience at the Presbyterian church. "Anyway." says Bob, "I was to give a little reading. Being as broad as I was tons, the first thing I did was to fall down. My brother was on Ihe platform with me, and 1 was sure he pushed me. "I scored a hit, however--I punched my brother right in the nose." It was in Oklahoma that Hawk received his first real speaking experience. He had always taken part in every type o[ show he learned of. He traveled the Sooner state as a good will spieler for little orchestra. When only 18.

Your radio editor remembers Hawk in the '30s doinp an afternoon show in the Windy City, called "Red Hot and Ixw DRH-D." r. S.: It was. Since 1938 Hawk has specialized in quiz shows.
