Radio Report : By ; Oscar Otalgla As easily the most significant diplomatic event of the past decade, the approaching "conference at. the summit" in Geneva will draw a larger-than-usual contin gept of radio reporters and analysts to Switzerland in its wake. Just for example, the Mutual Broadcasting System will be sending such headliners as Bob Consi- dirie, Fulton Lewis jr., sad Henry Gladstone to cover the sessions. The schedule for special broadcasts about the Big Four confer 1 ence hasn't yet been released, bul I'm sure Mutual and KSAL will give pretty complete coverage. CBS will send Edward R. Murrow, Eric Sevareid, Richard C. Holtelet, Alexander Kendrick, and Blair Clark to the scene. Their reports, of course, will be heard on all regular CBS news broadcasts. hi addition, a special series titled Parley at the Surmnit will be presented Monday through Friday frojn 1Q to 10:15 pm, Eastern Daylight Time. This would be 8 to 8:15 pm our time, but I don't know when CBS affiliates in this area (KFH and WIBW) will carry the programs. Listeners to those stations might well keep an ear cocked for broadcast limes -- with a group Of hend- liners like Murrow and Company the show should be worth sevon times its IS-minute duration. · A Sunday Parley at the Summit program also has been scheduled for 12:30 to 1 pm, EDT. ! * * * ' The Stratford Shakespearean Festival of Drama and Music at Stratford, Ontario Canada, will be the site of four special concerts to be aired by the Mutual Broadcasting System and KSAL on consecutive Sundays beginning July 17. Broadcast time will be from 9 to 10 pm. The festival will replace the vacationing C3C Symphony Orchestra, which ended its last series July 3. * * * · The 1955 All-Star baseball game, to be played Tuesday, will b e broadcast for the 12th straight year over the coast-to-coast Mutual network.

A preview of Uie classic is scheduled at 9;30 pm Monday on KSAL, GOOD AT FIGURES--Mara Corday is one of shapliest additions to Hollywood jungle.

Octopod* CBS has ambitious plans for the coverage of the Big Four Confer cnce at Geneva opening Sunday. Highlight of the j a m-packed schedule will be two special, half- hour reports on successive Sundays at 5:30 pm. The first report is for July 17 and the second will follow a week later. CBS newsmen from, the US and Europe will be in Geneva to cover the biggest single diplomatic venture in the past 10 years. Ed Murrow, Eric Sevareid, Richard Hottelet and Alexander Kendrick are among TV reporters as signed to cover the momentous week. * * * Mother always told me Virtue was its own Best Reward. Now comes CBS's "The $64,000 Question" and makes Bible study -- certainly a virtue -- rewarding in a highly material way. At least it was rewarding for Mrs. Catherine E. Kreitzer, 54- year-old grandmother from Camp Hill, Pa. Mrs. Kreitzer tapped the show's bulging till for $32,000 and can try for $64,000 on Tuesd a y night's show. The show has excited considerable comment among viewers here. Most of the contestants are i n- formed in the categories of questions they choose, a rarity in quiz shows. The questions are lough ones, too. I haven't been able to answer correctly a single one. That's what I don't like about the show. Usually, you know, the viewer is able to answer most questions asked on quiz shows. You sit and wonder why the contestants are such dumb bunnies Gives one a nice feeling of superiority. That's quite a comfort. * * * I forgot to wish "Search for Tomorrow", CBS daytime t e a r jerker, a happy 1000th broadcast, a recent milestone. How thoughtless of me. It's television's oldest daytime serial. It looks it, too. * * * "Voice of Firestone", topnotch ABC musical program, will depart from tradition for its 6:30 pm Monday program. There'll be no guest artist, a format unique in the program's 27 years of broadcasting. Instead the eight members of the mixed chorus will sing solos and duets in an all-request program of numbers most frequently requested m letters from listeners. The program is a dandy, too, starting with "Pomp and Circumstance" and going through selections from the "Vagabond King", 'TannhauBcr", "Snow White", and "Maytime". Will 1 ever be nostalgic. Gary Admits Dad Helps By James Bacon HOLLYWOOD Of) -- It's refreshing, for a change, to hear one Hollywood son admit that it helps in show business to have a famous father. Gary Crosby, eldest of Sing's four boys, is in show business now for keeps. He's a regular performer on Tennessee Ernie's CBS radio show and will have hjs own show this summer. He did one TV spot with Jack Benny and has another one coming up with Ed Sullivan. On May 26, he and Louis Armstrong break in a theater act in South Bend, Ind., and then go into the Chicago Theater for a stand. Has it hurt or helped being Ding's boy? "It's helped plenty," the husky Gary answers with unusual frankness. "A lot of doors were opened that might otherwise have been slammed hi my face." His answer differs from the slock one given by most sons of famous Hollywood personalities who say :hat their fathers" prestige hurts ;hem. Since most of them start their careers as producers, this gets an "oh yeah" reaction from the public. But Bing's prestige is probably only partly responsible for Gary's send-off in the business. Most important is the sense of rhythm he inherited from both his father and late mother- He's also a young carbon copy of his dad in the casual wit department. The latter bequests are the ones that will enable him to keep working on his own. In this commercial town, Bing's name may open the door but it takes talent to stay inside. The kid's got it.
