TMAS DW ON WH..P School Yule Program Repeated on WHP's Special Christmas Schedule Arrangements have been gram department to give listeners in me iiunsuuig uco comdete coverage of international, national and local r Ann Sothern, star of the Friday CBS "Maisie" airshow (WHP, 10.30) and M - G - M films, is all out for the Red Cross nurse's aid program, but isn't always their ablest helper. Night before she took her first aid test, she practised bandaging on a few party guests and it took three hours for them to free themselves. Haymes, 0'Hara Co - Star in LRT's 'Do YouLove Me' Dick Haymes and Maureen O'Hara re - enact their original film roles in the Lux Radio Thea tre's version of "Do You Love Me," popular film musical, on Monday, December 23, at 9 p. m, over CBS. William Keighley is the producer of the full - hour air - show. "Do .You Love Me" tells the amusing story of Katherine, the prim dean of a music school (played, by Maureen O'Hara), who comes to New York City to engage a conductor for the school's spring festival. On the train she meets the leader of a swing band who tells her that if she took off her glasses, she would be a "smooth tomato." When she arrives in New York, she takes his advice and, in other ways, effects such a transformation that a famous crooner named Jimmy Hale, portrayed by Dick Haymes, falls in love with her. When Katherine's friend, the band leader, meets her again in the city, he is amazed by the change in her and competes with Jimmy for her affections. Jimmy becomes jealous, at about the same time that Katherine is ousted from her position as school dean for swinging the classics. However, the story ends happily, with swing music keynoting the schools spring festival. Lou Silvers and his orchestra provide background music for the Lux Radio Theatre. A man of many characters is Kenny Delmar and his latest is "Rasputin," mad movie director. Delmar trots out Rasputin three days a week on Ms CBS "Hollywood Jackpot" (WHP Mon., Wed., and Fri., 4.30) show. To Each I 4 - II JW "I 'Rasputin9 ! 1 ? fmS II Comparing - their famous specialties during an informal get - together in CBS' Hollywood studios are Frank (The Voice) Sinatra, Jimmy (The Nose) Durante and Garry (The Haircut) Moore. Frankie is heard Wednesdays on CBS' "Songs By Sinatra", (WHP 9 p. m.) Jimmy and Garry on Columbia's Friday "Durante - Moore Show." (WHP 9.30 p. m.). completed by the WHP pro - i j : . ji lunrisimas events timing uie tum - ing holiday season. With emphasis on the local Yule' tide season, arrangements have been made' to rebroadcast the city school Christmas program, which was heard last Sunday, December 14, over WHP, Monday night, De cember 23 at 10.30. The Saint Stephen's Boys Choir will be heard in a special broadcast Sunday, December 22, 11.30 p. m. Included in the presentation will be a Christmas message from the Rt. Rev. Thomas J. Heistand. WHP will also carry the ap propriate Yuletide programs to be presented by the Columbia Network All CBS programs will be altered and augmented to conform with the season. CBS has also ar ranged for several special Christ mas programs that will feature some of the nation's outstanding choral and instrumental groups. The times for these programs can be found in WHP's complete schedule on this page. Through WHP's close association with the British Broadcasting Corporation, arrangements have been made to transmit to Harris burg listeners several special Holi' day programs from England and Europe. Times for all overseas Christmas broadcasts will be an nounced in advance. "Snow White and Seven Dwarfs" on "Screen Guild" The Lady Esther Screen Guild Players Christmas show will star Edgar Bergen, Charlie McCarthy and Mortimer Snerd in "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs," on December 23. at 10 p. m. over WHP. It will be a repeat performance in response to public demand, since Bergen did the same show for the Screen Guild two seasons aeo. He will again attempt to tell the beloved and familiar story to a very unwilling and very sarcaS' tic McCarthy. Bergen fancies him - self in the role of the dashing young prince, and the vision oi his appearance in purple tights on white charger throws Charlie into hysterics. As the story is told, parts of it are enacted by a supporting cast which includes Mortimer Snerd in the role of "Bashful." This back' woods character is so very bashful that he announces at one point that he refuses to undress in a room if he himself is in it. The broadcast promises to be a delightful fantasy in keeping with the spirit of the Yuletide season. The show is produced by Bill Lawrence, story adaptation is by Harry Kronman, and announcing duties are in the hands of Truman Bradley. Donald Dame on "MelodyHour" Donald Dame, Metropol itan tenor, appears as guest star on a program of holiday music ranging from the majesty of the "Adeste Fidelis" to Victor Herbert's gay "Babes in Toyland," on the Columbia network's "American Melo dy Hour" Christmas Eve, Decem ber 24 (WHP, 7.30 - 8 p. m.). Bob Hannon, baritone, and Eve lyn MacGregor, contralto, regular stars on the program, and the Knightsbridge Chorus enhance the holiday mood with appropriate hymns and traditional Noels. Compositions heard on the pro gram include "Gather Around the Christmas Tree," "Silent Night," "Jingle Bells," "Oh, Little Town of Bethlehem," "Ave Maria," "Away in a Manger," "Hark, the Herald Angels Sing," "The First Noel" and "Joy to the World." Job Open Ozzie Nelson and Harriet Hil liard, starred on CBS' "Adven tures of Ozzie and Harriet," are in the market for a temporary maid, to take over for a few weeks .tv4 - 1tfn.nl. Dnn T J i heard as Gloria, servant in thej Nelson household, will become mother. Her husband is Jim tsannon, Hollywood announcer and screen player. His Own HHP's Jack Paar Guest of Vaughn Monroe Tonight Jack Paar brilliant new com edy star will appear as guest on the Vaughn Monroe Show to' night at 7.30 p. m., over WHP and the Columbia network. The announcement is of direct interest to WHP listeners and the Central Pennsylvania audience, because of the local association which led to his stepping into stardom. Paar started on his career while stationed at Indiantown Gap, at which time he was heard on sev eral local broadcasts over WHP, and in local Army shows, before going overseas to be acclaimed 'Number One Comic of World War Twoc" While here he married the former Miriam Wagner of Her shey, Pennsylvania. Since his return from overseas he has appeared on several top flight broadcasts, including "We, the People" and "Hall of Fame," later going on to Hollywood under a screen contract with RKO. He now has returned east for the Christmas season and several east coast radio appearances, the first oi which is the Vaughn Mon roe Show tonight. Ginny Simms Adds Young Comedian To Friday Cast Donald O'Connor, 21 year old motion picture comedian, has parlayed three guest appearances on the CBS "Ginny Simms Show" into a contract as a permanent feature of the series. He is a regular member of the company beginning Friday, December 20 (9 - 9.30 p. m. From Hollywood). Son of one of the great acro bats in circus history. John E. "Chuck" O'Connor, who hurled elephants and high barriers as principal leaper for Ringling Brothers, Donald was in show business as a professional at the age of 13 months. In a vaudeville act with his mother and older brother, Donald appeared at that wide - eyed age, doing his version of the black bottom." He was tap dancing with the family troupe at three and a half, and started at four. , Back in 1938, he was doing a charity in Los Angeles when a motion picture talent scout, impressed by his talents, arranged a test which led to his being signed for the role of Bing Crosby's young brother in "Sing You Sinners." He made 11 pic tures for Paramount within a single year, after which he went back to vaudeville with his family for two years. Universal brought him back to motion pictures, and he has made rapid strides in that medium. He spent two years in the Army.
