Monday Evening, December 9, 1957. Ad Libs Biggest Fear Of Video Producers United Press Staff Correspondent NEW YORK (UP)— TV fears the ad lib. Television writes jokes for its quizmasters and panelists. It cans laughter for its comedies. It manufactures in advance jolly-type banter for its emcees and singers. It's safer that /jay. Jazz is the art of the ad lib. And for the most pan, jazz and TV are strangers. Jazz buffs, like winter sparrows, feed on crumbs.

For one thing, there were just too many musicians, around 30 of them, ranging from two-beaters like Pee Wee Russell to modern beater:; like Monk. There was also Billie Holiday who just looked beat.

It is a study of a group of Carmelite nuns, an order devoted to contemplation, who choose martyrdom during the French Revolution. In particular, it pretends to be a study of one who joins their group out of fear of life, who deserts them out of fear, but who returns to choose martyrdom, too.

To Help Curb Prices AMES, Iowa (UP)—Agriculture Secretary Ezra Tail Benson has praised a union leader's proposal for a one-year moratorium on wage increases to hold inflation down. "It makes sense," Benson told an all-agriculture banquet sponsored by Iowa Slate College Thursday night. Benson was referring to the wage freeze proposal of Richard J. Gray, president of the building trades department of thc AFL- CIO. Although Labor Secretary James P. Mitchell said the idea deserves "serious consideration," Gray has come under attack from other union leaders. George Meany, AFL-CIO president, came out against the recommendation and said labor should ask for further wage hikes. Benson said the proposal is "sound economic policy in this period of inflation," and mentioned that farm machinery prices went up again recently. A considerable part of increased industrial profits and higher wages "have been siphoned from the economic bloodstream of the nation at the expense of agriculture" for several years, he said. The Cabinet member also said th Midwest has lost its natural leadership in feed grain production. He attributed this to federal farm price supports and their "inevitable production curbs." Benson said he looked to Congress to put across his proposal to cut corn price supports below the present 75 per cent of parity anc to eliminate corn acreage controls, sturting in 3959. His proposals, the agriculture secretary said, would result in a >etter balance between feed supplies and livstoclj production.
