There's no adequate name j for Fanny's salaried function, but she is referred to as "Shadow" by friends. It is very possible that,' should Fanny decide to sample ofj Joys of home and hearth, Gertrude, would be forced into premature re - j tirement and the nation would lose; a heroine, Molly Goldberg. j But Fanny loves her life, even' when it means a lengthy separation j from her husband, a composer, andj son Howard, a successful radio and; television writer.

"And every Sunday for the past 21 years we've sworn to go on by turns a sounding board (Mrs. Berg likes to "talk out" plots) amannuensis, personal shopper, casting director and chum. They've worked as a smooth team since 1929, but Fanny has never lost a jot of her vast admiration for the middle - aged, friendly and charming Mrs. Berg.

Soon Mrs. Merrill Gertrude, who has turned out; was handling all the fan mail of the close to 5,000 scripts on Goldberg adventures and produced a hit play, "Me and Molly, - on them, has a quick temper. But once it's out, it's over," says Fanny, "I figure she's got to let off is apt to land in Fanny's lap. "One day Mrs. Berg told me to go out and by her bloomers." Mrs Merrill said, still with some shock In her voice. "I told her that it was all right for me to go along ever lost my temper. When something really upsets me, I just walk out and don't come back." She more or less stumbled into her present job. Both she and her son Howard were tJoing some acting ith hpr tn Hattie Carnegie's and 'in the old silent days, and then BpnrriorfVs fnr rirpssps and to helot Howard naturally slid over into i pick out otlier things, but a person should pick out her own underwear.

Gertrude, about to launch The Goldbergs, did a mother part in a show with Howard. The two women met and took an instant liking to one another successful program, and then slid into other jobs when they popped up. . . She has been doing the casting for the Goldberg's for years subject to a final okay from Gertrude. - I've been with the show so long I get all mixed up on things she said. "Sometimes I can't remembei whether things happened to the Goldbergs, to Mrs. Berg's family or to my own family Gertrude, who has made a reputation and a fortune depicting family life in the Bronx, actually is a native of Delaware County, upstate, where her family ran a hotel.

The feeling is mutual. Fanny thinks they get along well because they are botti tolerant.

Action on the election was plated Wednesday night but no quarum was pres ent, according to Earl L. Snyder, president Gonder Will Ask Recount Bernard I. Gonder, Oakland resident who was defeated by one vote in the November 7 election as the Democratic candidate for the State Senate, from Garrett County, will challenge the results and ask for a recount. , Gonder was nosed out by the incumbent Republican, Senator Neil C. Fraley. The official count was 3,080 for Fraley to Gonder's 3,079. The State Senate will ' receive Gonder's petition in the January session and will act on it, setting the place and conditions of the recount. Gonder said: "After the unofficial tabulation showed that I had lost by 21 votes I made up my mind not to ask for a recount However, when the official tally had reduced my opponent's lead to only one vote, I was urged by many of my friends and supporters, not only in Garrett county but throughout the state, to challenge the count. I did not feel that I could ignore their request, especially when reports of election irregularities began to reach me, I decided to go into the matter as fully as possible. "Of course I do not suspect any deliberate attempt to change the vote, but I do have evidence that certain irregularities occurred in the marking and counting of the ballots which could alter the result." Hearines will be arranged and persons having knowledge of discrepancies in counting or marking of ballots will have an opportunity to present their statements. . Items Donated About 1,000 pounds of food and clothing were donated here this week to the Church World Service Center, New Windsor, for overseas relief use. Next collection will be made the second Tuesday in February. .71 0 MAKE YOUR WASH u yes r$ rxaef Afy SHEETS IKE VOfV 7MVmEW MOM SAyS MY COCOREP 1 7 VOW 7MWHWEV 7ffyCMtE fRMf7HE u0S7mE - x ii THESE RESULTS ARE CERTIFIED BY THE LABORATORIES OF THE UNITED STATES TESTING COMPANY.
