Six Logansport, Indiana. Pharos-Tribune "American Bandstand" Aims To Please Teen-Age Crowd NEW YORK (UP)—Teen-agers make or break a pop record. Bat strangley enough, although TV trots out a bushel of musical shows each week, only one is pitched right at the saddle shoes set—"American Bandstand." ABC-TV, which launched like to be thought of as belonging to a distinguishable, group. He wants an identity of his own. He thinks like an adult, but he thinks of different things. He's not concerned too much with mak- show on its network in August (it ing a living as adults are. His the; concerns • are things like the high started as a Philadelphia local five TV entry in years ago) beams it to 74 of its stations for 90 minutes each afternoon, Monday through Friday. The daytime show has proved so successful that, since October, the network also has staged a half-hour evening version each Monday. No 'Maggie' Talent The show's click with teen-agers Is based on a simple formula: It shuns the high - priced, highly- publicized "When-You-and-I- were- Young, Maggie" talent that other network musicals offer so often. Instead, "American Bandstand" zeroes in on the artists the kids are buying— Johnny Mathis, the Everly brothers, the Crickets, many of them names that don't school football team, music... "His heroes? Well, in music, Ricky Nelson and Sal Mineo. Elvis Presley is still big. And there's Jerry Lee Lewis and Fats Domino. With the exception of Fats, who is 29, they're all pretty young — the kids can identify with them. They buy Pat Boone, too, but they don't get excited about the Prank Sinatra of this ger.iera- tion. On the whole, 98 per cent of our kids are well-mannered, well- adjusted neople. It's the two per cent who have stirred up all the trouble — something many adults fail to consider. I remember .once on rny show I read a statement about young people being unfit, disrespectful...

"Even some radio stations have stopped programming for the kids. The situation exists because so many advertisers think the teen-agers lack buying power. "But, of course, anybody who knows teen-agers knowns that's nonsense. In any family, the teenager influences the purchase of the car, the toothpaste, the breakfast cereal that goes into that family. And he sets the styles for the rest of the nation in other things—in music, in fashion, for example." Commands Loyal Audience At 27, the baby - faced Clark commands a pretty loyal audience. One trade weekly ("Variety"), he pointed out, recently called him "the number one hit maker in the nation." Clark returns that loyalty. "I think it was Mitch Miller who said the teen-ager likes rock 'n' roll because nobody else does," says Clark. "The teen-ager would PURDUE PROF DIES LAFAYETTE (UP)—Dr. Siegfried M.

Ike Said on March 7,1956: "When I Can't Carry On, I Won't Be There" WASHINGTON 'UP) — "A:id when I feel that I can't carry... on," the President said, "I won't be there." The President was Dwight D. Eisenhower: The occasion was his White House new conference of March 7, 1956, in which the President discussed his decision to se/ek a second term and his physical ability to do the work. "I have said," Eisenhower acld- ed later in the conference, "unless I felt absolutely up to the performance of the duties of t'iie president, the second that I didn't, I would no longer be there in the job or I wouldn't be available lor the job. "I have promised them (the African people) that, as a matter of fact." A reporter pressed for more specific information as to the President's intentions in the event of illness; would he withdraw from the campaign or leave the White House if he had been elected? "Well, now," Eisenhower replied, "don't hold me down if I get a week's case of the flu or something else." The President said he paid more attention to non-medical advice and his own feelings than to what the doctors had to say about his fitness to run for a second term. The panel of physicians, headed by Dr. Paul Dudley White, had said on Feb. 14, 1956, that they .did not foresee any "medical" reasons why Eisenhower would be unable to serve out a second term. I White thought the President could expect to carry on an ac live lift! for another five to 10 years. His decision to run again was announced at a White House news conference Feb. 9, 1956. Eisenhower said that, taking everything into consideration, he believed: "I can now perform as well as I ever have all of the important duties of the presidency." As of today, the President's physicians prescribe for him several weeks of decreased activity. Important business already has 'been cancelled or postponed. The President's journey to the North Atlantic Treaty Organization meeting in Paris next month is out. Whether the President is as confident today as he was in February, 1956, that he can "now per- FOWLED UP PASADENA, Calif. (UP)— Police say Nicolas M.
