PAGE TWENTY-FOUR THE PHAROS-TRIBUNE and LOGANSPORT PRESS, LOGANSPORT, INDIANA Berlin in 50th Year As Top Song-Writer NEW YORK (-UP) — I saw a good movie last night. Maybe it just seemed good because I hadn't seen a movie for many months. But if this sort oi thing keeps up, I'm going to be driven away from television and back into the palace o£ the silver "screen. Its name is "Sayonara," and this was a preview. The picture will open next month in New York and around the country in January. The real stars of the film are the countryside, color, and customs of Japan. Marlon Brando is fine in the leading role. Red Buttons, a guy. who learned his business in the sweat and toil of the burlesque stage and who took a rough kicking around after a one^year smash as a comedian on TV, is going to be established as a movie actor of some stature when '.'Sayonara" opens-. '' Admired Songwriter But the personality I was pulling for 1 did not appear - in the show. All he did was write 1 the ] theme song which has the same title as the movie.. The song "Sayonara" has been out only four weeks, but it's hac seven recordings and several more records are being made. It's a nice thing to happen to a man who this fall is celebrating his-50th anniversary as a song writer. This one-time waif of New York's melting pot lower Bast Side, a paper-peddler who ran away from home at 14. began singing on street tcrners for pennies and pro- gjtssed to singii.g waiter. His name was Izzy Baline. He finally got a singing job at Mike Baiter's Saloon on Pell Street at the edge of Chinatown. Mike. Salter ordered Izzy to write a song. . This was one of the most fortuitous commands in American history. Izzy Baline turned out a cornball jingle named Marie from Sunny Italy. The royalties on it were 33 cents. But Izzy was in business. Two years later he changed his name to Irving Berlin. Had Smash Hit In 1911 In 1911, - he wrots Alexander's Ragtime Band, a smash international hit — he was off and running and hasn't been headed since in a 'Career of contacting around 1,200 popular songs. More than 850 of these have been published and about 25 or 30 have been super- duper all-time hits. Now, in this autumn of his golden anniversary year, record albums are being issued saluting him, his work, and his success. Speaking of "success, White Christ- mas alone has sold more than 24- million records. We might as well salute him for what he is—America's minstrel to the-world. Spec/of Badge For WWJ Tank Veterans INDIANAPOLIS WB—Approval of a combat badge for'veterans who served in the original American .tank corps in World War I was announced Friday. Tom White, national adjutant of the World Wars Tank Corps Assn., Isaid- the quartermaster general | has approved 'a tricolor badge of red and blue on yellow bearing a tank design. From 12 .to 30 pounds of lavender oil is obtained from one acre of flowers, according to the Encyclopedia Britannica. Wage Major War in U. S. Against "Catching" Diseases ATLANTA CUP) - A major] campaign in mankind's constant fight against "catching" diseases is under development in a group o£ weather beaten barracks just outside Atlanta. Researchers of the U.S. Public Health Service's Communicable Disease Center are laying the groundwork for battles against billions of microscopic bugs that are responsible for infectious diseases. , Asian flu is one of the diseases involved but others for which the Atlanta researchers are seeking preventive measures- are yellow jaundice, leprosy, diarrheal ailments, and the common cold. Two new diagnostic techniques have made the center's work easier and the general medical future brighter. One is a proc.ess in which antibodies for a given disease are treated with a fluorescent material, then turned loose in a specimen of suspected diseased matter. If the disease is present, its germs will announce themselves under the microscope by glowing brightly. The other process is a speedy and economical method of determining whether a. person is immune to a certain disease. Dr. Ukko Pentti Kokko, one, of the top administrators at the research laboratory at Chamblee, Ga., sees the center's work as a step toward prolonging the life span — which has already been lengthened substantially in recent decades. ' "Of the millions upon millions o£ persons born on the earth-since Christ lived, 5 per cent are alive today," said Dr. Kokko, a former medical officer with the Finnish army. ' " ' March Of Medicine The research administrator used this statistic to illustrate medical science's great strides in expanding the length of the average man's life. The CDC, headed by the assistant surgeon general, Robert J. Anderson, had its beginnings in 1942, when an agency called malaria control in war areas (MCWA) was formed to try to hold down malaria around militarily strategic areas in the Southeast. When World War II ended, it wai expanded to include the entire'field of infectious disease. But its' primary function continues 'to be research — finding a basis for effective medical attacks on diseases that spread.
