Rain washed out the scheduled twin bill and the Yankees immediately rescheduled one game for this afternoon. When Stengel was advised that the Brownie manager Marty Marion contemplated using southpaw Bob Cain today, he announced Triandos would be his first baseman.

Langston-McWaters Buick Co. by Felix Carney In case you're still wondering what to do about color' TV . . . how it's going to af- Jett you and whether or not it should influence your purchase of a TV set, here are video producer, Jerry Fair- some comments by a veteran banks. He compares color television to color movies. "Like motion pictures, television will continue to use a great amount of black-and- white film even when color becomes a regular feature in the ne wmcdium," Fairbanks says. "The cost of filming in color and the superiority »of black-and-white for certain types of productions are the factors which will dictate the use of black-and-white." So most TV will remain black-and-w h i t e even after color conies. Add to this the fact that color sets will cost much more and that volume production is a long way away, and you see why you shouldn't put off getting a new set today. Another note on the national TV scene: the FCC has made arrangements to do away with a lot of red tape about awarding TV station permits, so that the backlog of applications can be eliminated faster. That means more new stations sooner. For the best reception of the many new fall programs planned for television, we are proud to recommend the beautiful GENERAL ELECTRIC TV set with the Black Daylight tube for better vision.
