The Colonel's guest star for the occasion is Ruth Chatterton, cele b rated stage and film actress who heads a summer theater cast play ing at Toronto. Her current dramatic vehicle there is "Pygmalion." Stoopnagle was modest in his announcement: "I know it's a case of the sublime joining the ridiculous. The 'drahma' and comedy have always been close. One may weep for joy or otherwise. See what I mean? I don't! At any rate, Miss Chatterton's sure to give Ontario Show fans a spendid treat."" Ontario took the Colonel to its heart last week. He is a neighbor i native of Buffalo who understands its mood end knows how to interpret it in rollicking American style. With him and Miss Chatterton June 2, CBS network listeners will enjoy the songs of Sair Lee, Dave Davies and the Forest City Octet and the King Edward Hotel orchestra, directed by Luigi Ro - manelli.
