'AKDUMD. 70WM V 1 ' y 1 n HELEN HALL 'H.M.S. Pinafort" at Lido Heinz was in a pickle! "Who," we queried, "Pardon, WHOM have you for the Newspaper Frolic this year?" George Heinz, for the uninitiate, is the young man who directed the California Centennial's Commission for the past three years and is northern California's most prominent producer of shows. The Frolic is touchy subject with Georgie boy. Until his star is signed, scaled and ready for delivery, he's as loquacious as an Eskimo with lockjaw. But we persisted, knowing that Heinz had just returned from a five week pleasure and business trip (frolic -wise and other) to New York and Chicago. We were also aware that he had talked with Jack Benny, Danny Kavo fiinenr Roeers. Celeste Holm, Abe Burrows, Vivian Blaine and Janet Blair while in the East. About the Frolic? "Saw 'South Pacific In Chi and K W quoteth he, "Janet Blair does a much better Job than inary Martin Tnuntrv Girl is best show in Gotham. Charlotte Green wood's killine 'em in 'Out of This World.' Mike Todd's 'Peep Show' Isn't so hot. 'Guys and Dolls' Is great." We're persistent, remember? "Now about our Frolic star?" "Know what my biggest thrill was? Meeting the Duke and Duchess of Windsor. What nice people. Night club business in the East stinks." Persistence, you see, pays off! So in a week or two or three, when his Frolic star is signed, sealed, etc.. we'll know who wLom he s..c - is! & GAB'N'GOSSIP ... a "Lucky" boyby for the Larry Chings Tues day at Stanford Hospital.

I I " " 1 POLICEMAN'S CRASH PROBED An investigation was under way yesterday to determine why no citation was issued in an Oakland accident involving an Emeryville policeman Thursday night. Investigators also want to know why an off-duty highway patrolman took the Emeryville policeman from the accident scene, gave him some coffee, and took him to a hospital forty-five minutes later. The Emeryville policeman is Leo Neuberger, 43, of 4318 Essex Street. His auto collided at Market Street and West MacArthur Boulevard with one driven by Jerome Hunt, 20, of 875 Fifty-fifth Street. Both men suffered minor knee injuries. A witness, William Holtsman, 4027 Lincoln Avenue, said Policeman Neuberger went through a red light. Allen W. Turner, a California Highway patrolman off-duty, who lives at 933C West MacArthur Boulevard, a block from the accident scene, and who knows Neuberger, heard the crash and ran out. He said Neuberger had been drinking, but was not drunk, and that he 'took him home to give him some coffee. Then he took him to Permanente Hospital. It was there that Oakland traffic policemen Richard F. Verwar and Vernon L. Peters met Neuberger and agreed that while he had been drinking he was not drunk. They gave no citations to anyone. Yesterday Oakland's chief of traffic inspectors, Wayne Petteys, said Neuberger would be served with a citation for failing to observe a red light with the notation that he had been drinking. Bar License Appea Montclair Residents To Fight Permit Attorneys for residents of the Montclair residential district of Oakland announced yesterday that they will file a petition for a writ of mandate in superior court, in an attempt to reverse a board of equalization ruling which approved operation of a bar in the area. The attorneys, Alan Lindsay and Darrell Edwards, said the petition will be filed within the next thirty days. The board in Sacramento on Thursday overrode protests from scores of home owners, who objected to a license given to A. J. and J. S. Flagg, former part owners of Tahoe Tavern. They plan the bar in connection with a restaurant at 2062 Mountain Boulevard in Montclair, The residential area, in the hills behind Piedmont, has a self contained business district with an off-sale liquor establishment. It has never had a bar, however. Northern and Central Califor nia householders will begin paying higher gas rates tomorrow. The raise of about 11.5 per cent will add 40 cents per month to the average bill. It will affect 1,030,000 P. G. & E. customers in thirty-five counties, including residential and commercial users. The increase is an interim one and will be effective until the California Public Utilites Commission acts on the P. G. & E.'s application for a permanent in crease of $18,158,000. If granted this would mean a 27 per cent in crease over present rates, of $1.20 for each customer. Tomorrow's increase is the third rate raise granted the company in the past fifteen months. It was foueht before the PUC bv the cites of San Francisco, Oak land, Vallejo, Carmel, and Alameda County and by San Joaauin Valley communites. The new rate will mean an ad- ZARCO & DeLORIS BOBBY GARAY LAVISH LATIN REVUE MEXICAN AND Dunrlnt from 8 AMERICAN lilt show 0 IMNNKRS Banquet momi I'KOM MX 25 to 250 Mottle's 4CAPULC0 Tunnel Strip la Lafayette Reservation Lafayetta 3711 CAFE LA RUE Ul SUTTER ST.
