TEXAS AVE. DIAL 5085 The Public Doesn't Like Automatons J5y CLEMENT I). JOXES United Press Stuff Correspondent HOLLYWOOD, Jan. 14 — (IP) — Margaret Whiting advises all a.s- piring young singers to sing "with a heart," it they want to got on the road to success. "The day of the mechanical singer arc all over," tlic vocal star said. 'The paying customers want to be emotionally moved by what they hear and not listen to an automaton recite the lyrics of a song, "The trend of the sincere type of singor began with Al Jolson and today is exemplified hy Rdith Piaf. "Most of your successful vocalists now perform instead of just sing their songs. The lyrics of love songs relate stories and the singer tolls the story. You've got to feel and belljvu what you're singing in order to make the listener believe it, too." Margaret also emphasizes that the voice itself is of secondary importance, if the singer can convey his message with fidelity, "Some of the biggest singing stars of the d:iv would have a tough time winning prizes -with their voices. This isn't said to belittle them; on the contrary, it is complimentary. They sell their songs and presentations; not their voices." Margaret found this out for herself when she first turned professional. She realized something was wrong when she was signed to sing on the ''Hit Parade" and lasted only four months. "After that shocker, I realized I didn't have that elusive bit of talent known as showmanship and set out to get it," she admitted. She joined various bands and went on the road for two years to acquire the polish she needed, and to "get the beat" as she puts it"This is what every singer needs," she added. "A chance to learn the business and develop his own style without the fear of being bad." Proof of Margaret's theory is that she has been one of the top female singers for the past decade and that otic of her Capitol records usually is on the best seller list. Q—I've hocn contributing money to my mother each week for several years. Would that be considered proof that she's dependent on me? I want to claim her as a dependent when I enroll in school under the Korean GI Bill. A—The fact that you've been making contributions to your mother is not conclusive evidence in itself that dependency exists. But VA will consider it in connection with all other evi- .dence showing that she actually is dependent on you. Q—My deadline for starting Korean GI training is Aug. 20, 1954. I want to take a correspondence course. Will VA consider that I started in time if I simply enroll in the course before the deadline? A—Enrolling in the correspondence course before the deadline is not enough- VA will consider that you started in time if Ihs .school sends you your first lesson before the deadline elate. Questions And Answers Q—I'm leaving my National Service Life Insurance dividends at the VA so they'll draw interest. Could you tell rr«- how the VA credits interest to my account? A—Interest will be computed and credited on the balance of di- divcnd deposits remaining the day before the anniversary date of the policy. Q—Will I have to pay income tax on disability compensation payment I receive from the VA? •f -No- VA benefit payments aro not taxable. I. fact, they need not even be reported as i.-:come, for tax purposes. Caught By A Heel MANCHESTER, Conn. OP!—John B.
