They will present a radio version of Mrs. Belloc Lowndes famous thrill - novel, "The Lodger," as the first in a projected series titled "Suspense" and designed to brine "something new and different to radio." Description of Britain's Defenses on WHP Sunday Difficulties encountered in clearing communications channels within England to permit the Co - ' lumbia network roundup broadcast of British preparations against Nazi invasion has resulted in postponement of the CBS special news program, originally planned for Saturday, July 13. British government and military agencies are reported cooperating bo that the program will be heard in this country on CBS and WHP Sunday, 11 to 11.30 p. m. Details are now available on plans for this first - hand word picture of the British Isles as it undergoes transformation into a mighty fortress within which its entire civilian populace makes ready to stand off the invaders. With Edward R. Murrow, chief of Columbia's European staff, at the central microphone in London, pickups have been arranged as follows: Vincent Sheean, noted writer, from Cardiff, Wales. Arthur Menken, former CBS correspondent in the Russo - Finn - ish war, from Belfast, Eire. Erland Echlin, seasoned CBS European reporter, from Glasgow, Scotland. Eric Sevareid, who headed Columbia's Paris bureau until the German conquest, from Manchester, England. Larry Leseuer, CBS man recently with the British Royal Air Force in France, from Bristol, England. VTeather Is Subject of Summer Hour Mark Twain's immortal observation about the weather draws a response from the Ford Summer Hour as Jessica Dragonette, James Newill, Budd Hulick and Leith Stevens' band do something about it in music. They have arranged a melodic and entertaining attack on bad weather for the Sunday broadcast over the Columbia network and WHP, 9 to 10 p. m. At intermission, Linton Wells will tell more about his findings at the great Rouge River Plant. The subject of "A Rainy Day" has been drawn on for a finale and gives the cast an opportunity to bring out several of the song hits fashioned from it through the years. Budd Hulick's streamlined fairy tale, which has become a popular weekly adjunct of the series, is based on "Aladdin and the Wonderful Lamp." Treasure Hunt Clue to Queen's Mystery Ellery Queen, hoping to escape to the country for a restful weekend, runs into a jewel theft in "The Adventure of the Treasure Hunt," over WHP and the Columbia network Sunday, at 7.30 p. m. Ellery - and his crime sleuths, Sergeant Velie, Inspector Queen and Nikki, are among the house - guests at General Barrett's military estate on the Hudson to celebrate the former army chief's birthday. No sooner has the group arrived than the famous Barrett pendant is stolen from the Gen eral's daughter. Ellery, keeping in tune with the week - end party, cleverly stages a treasure hunt for the guests in the hope of tracking down the criminal. One of the two "guest detec tives" will be Carol Bruce, of the Broadway hit "Louisiana Purchase," who will try to discover which of General Barrett's house - guests took advantage of his posi tion to steal the valuable pendant. Herbert Marshall, Danny Kaye Joan Edwards Share Variety Spotlight Director Alfred Hitchcock, whose "Rebecca" firmly entrenched the celebrated British cinema director as one of the greatest screen personalities ever to enter Hollywood, makes his American radio bow on Columbia's network's "Forecast" from the West Coast, on WHP Monday, 9 to 10 p. m. Hitchcock has as his star, Her bert Marshall, in the first of a projected series called "Suspense," which for this premiere offers an airlane adaptation by Joan Mor - rsion of Mrs. Belloc Lowndes "The Lodger." The New York half of the "Forecast" presents another "first" in the 14 programs of the series. The widely - heralded musicom - edy and radio comedian, young Danny Kaye, is to be heard with Joan Edwards, Rush Hughes, the Four Clubmen and Lyn Murray's Orchestra in No. 1 of a group of programs which are to be called "When You Were 21." To assure CBS coast - to - coast audiences of the quintessence of star, story and music, Vice - President in Charge of Broadcasts W. B. Lewis has assigned screen and radio director Brewster Morgan to interpret the script prepared by Eddie Foreman, Nat Curtis and Sylvia Fine. The original idea of "When You Were 21," was Morgan's and with Danny Kaye, Columbia feels it has found the combination of star and vehicle which it long has sought to achieve. The July 22 program selects 1919 as its year. That was when "Dardanella" was the song hit, "Java Head" was a best seller, Frank Bacon starred in "Light - nin' " on the stage, Charlie Chaplin was wowing the world in a movie called "Shoulder Arms," Jack Dempsey knocked out Jess Willard and the Prince of Wales was America's No. 1 hero during his visit. The "Suspense" series, from Hollywood, takes the popular "whodunit" literature and gives it the eeriest and most unusual treatment available by the most skilled actors and directors. t Hailed by dramatic and radio critics as the newest of the comedy stars, young Danny Kaye has top honors in the New York half of CBS network's "Forecast" program. Launching a projected series titled "When You Were 21," Danny will have as his singing star the popular Joan Edwards, shown with him above. "When You Were 21" is designed to pick a typical year when some listener, who has written the prize letter, was 21. Songs, books, news and events of that year form the basis of the half - hour show. "Canvas Kisser" Is Latest Sports Saga of "Workshop" Columbia network fans who thought Brewster Morgan and Nat Curtis presented the tall - story to out - tower all tall - stories, when they offered "Columbia Workshop the sad saga of "The Cock eyed Wonder," have another think coming. On Sunday, over WHP, 8:00 to 8:30 p. m. the same team of director and author have an ath letics - oddity - Odyssey, titled "The Canvas Kisser." And if none of the CBS coast - to - coast "Workshop" fans ever have heard of Walloping Willy, the One - Khack Wallaby, they haven't given very close attention PROGRAM SCHEDULE WHP 1430 Kilocycles WHP SUNDAY, JULY 21 (DAYLIGHT SAVING TIME) MORNING 9.00 CBS News of Europe 9.15 HBG Miracles and Melodies 9.30 CBS Clyde Barrie, Songs 9.45 CBS To Be Announced 10.00 CBS Church of the Air 10.30 CBS Wings Over Jordan 11.00 HBG Market Square Presybterian Church Services AFTERNOON 12.15 CBS Major Bowes Capitol Theatre Family 12.30 CBS Salt Lake City Tabernacle Services 1.00 HBG Weather Reports. 1.05 HBG News Reports. 1.15 HBG Accordion Novelties. 1.30 CBS March of Games 2.00 HBG Chuck Foster and his orchestra 2.30 CBS Press Radio News 2.35 CBS Summer Cruise. 3.00 CBS Columbia Broadcasting Symphony - Howard Barlow, Conducting 4.30 HBG Modernesque. 5.00 CBS World's Fair Vesper Service 5.30 CBS "Flow Gently, Sweet Rhythm" EVENING .6.00 HBG String Salon 6.15 HBG Nobe Frank Baseball scores, presented by Ten Crown Charcoal Gum. 6.30 HBG Your Radio News Extra presented by Styletex Clothes 6.45 HBG Lew White Trio 7.00 CBS "The World This Week" 7.30 CBS Adventures of Ellery Queen presented by Gulf 8.00 CBS Columbia Workshop. 8.30 HBG Alvino Rey Revue 8.55 CBS Elmer Davis News 9.00 CBS Ford Summer Hour Jessica Dragonette, Budd Hulick, Leith Steven's Orchestra 10.00 CBS "Take It or Leave It." 10.30 CBS Public Affairs 11.00 CBS Special British Defense Preparations Program 11.30 CBS Dick Jurgens and His Orchestra 12.00 CBS Henry Busse and His Orchestra 12.30 CBS Press Radio News. 12.35 CBS Raymond Scott and His Orchestra 12.55 HBG News Summary and Sign - off the to the pugilistic records. "The Canvas Kisser" is touching story of Willy a conk - crushing Kangaroo who could have taken on Joe Louis, Jack Dempsey, Jim Jeffries, Jess Willard and the whole left field bleachers gang at Ebbets Field all at once. Small matter that the Great Umpire came and counted Willy out when nobody else could. Willy, like John Brown, kept marching on, soul and heel (which latter was his manager). Willy made the most amazing comeback in all the annals of the ring until he met the lady light - heavyweight champ, a coy little job with a smile like Shirley Temple and a sock like a steam - hammer. But this is no place to talk of a man's love affairs. "Workshop" tells this tale better than mere cold type. Allentowii Choir Heard on World's Fair Broadcast The Salem Chancel Choir of Salem Evangelical and Reformed Church, Allentown, will be presented over WHP and the Columbia network in a program from the New York World's Fair Temple of Religion Sunday, 5 to 5.30 p. m. This is one of a number of similar events to be carried by WHP from the fair during the summer. The recital opens with an organ solo, "In the Cathedral" by Pierne. The choir is then heard in "How Lovely Is Thy Dwelling Place" from Brahms' "A German Requiem"; the Bach chorale, "Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring," and "Let Their Celestial Concerts All Unite" by Handel. A duet, "Unto the Hills" by Ferdinand David, is next given, after which the choir returns to sing "The Blessings of Peace" by Archangelsky and Davies' "God Be in My Head."
