HOLLYWOOD-Now that almost everyone else is singing folk songs, Burl Ives has eased off, And it's a pity. At 300 pounds empty-handed— without his guitar—the bearded "Big Daddy" of the movie "Cat On A Hot Tin Roof" and the song "Blue Tail Ply" is still the only folk singer around who looks like one. Most of today's new warblers look like they parked their motorcycles somewhere and Just became folk singers. And a good many of their "old" folk songs sound like they were just written yesterday. Old Burl never went along with that jazz. Even when he was the only folk singer around some 12 years ago, pioneering the big time field, he made no secret of the fact that good "old" folk songs are hard to come by. So he had a fellow on salary turning out "old" songs for him. It is that way today, but no one admits it. Well, maybe a few do. Burl rose to fame on his new "old" folk songs and became quite a movie personality. The movies were responsible for the cut of his beard. That's when I first met him. In fact, I helped Burl select the shape. The make-up department didn 't like the one he was wearing at the time, so we had a collection of beards brought in. THE ONE HE SELECTED, and wears even today, won the audition, as I recall, for its "personality" and "flair." The jolly big fellow still sings a song or two, but it is only now and then. He prefers acting, sailing and what he calls "dabbling," which covers a number of tilings. At the moment he is combining both acting and sailing and getting paid handsomely for both. He has the role of a cantankerous old Navy captain in "Ensign Pulver," a sequel to the enormously successful "Mr. Roberts." The film is being made aboard an old ex-Navy cargo ship, an AKL, on location off the coast near Acapulco, Mexico That's where he turned up the other day from his home at Carib, in the Bahamas, where he spends much of his time aboard his 43-foot Gloucester schooner "Tibby." From our man in Acapulco, we have a report that the first words he wheezed after lowering his 300 pounds into an oversized chair in his hotel suite were: EXCH. •Delivered Price for Electric Model Slightly Higher for Gas Model WEATHER FORECAST: RAINY - DARK COLD DAYS AHEAD WE SERVICE WHAT WI SELL.

Mr. and Mrs. Bernard Peters and children, B. J. and Lori of Marquette, Mich., who are visiting her mother, Mrs. Helen Cornel) in Rock Island, spent Tuesday night and Wednesday with Mr. and Mrs. Duane Fryrear and family. The Peterses are moving to East Lansing, Mich., where Peters will attend school this fall, beginning his work on his doctors degree. Mrs. Vera Ruberg of Boise, Idaho, is visiting her mother, Mrs. James Snodgrass, and Mr. Snodgrass, and her brothers, Leslie Stubbs and family and Johnny Stubbs and wife. Mr. and Mrs. Earle A. Kloster and son Dan and Mr. and Mrs. Francis Haney and sons Patrick and Michael spent a weekend camping along a lake near Keosauqua, Iowa. "1 forgot my change of shorts." With that he picked the telephone up for a long distance call to a place in Beverly Hills that specializes in out-size underwear. "Only place 1 know that can fit me," he lamented. "How could I have forgotten extra shorts? Now 1*11 have to keep washing the pair I'm wearing and hang it up on the balcony of this room for all Acapulco to see." Then his pique became lost in his humor. "Oh, well, my shorts will be my trademark," he said. "One if by land', my shorts will say to the bathers on the beach. But it can never say 'Two If by sea' because I'll have only one pair until the new shipment arrives." HE'S EASED OFF AS A FOLK SINGER, he said, twirling an unlit cigar, "because there just isn't time enough. 1 like to act, sail and dabble. I do one film a year, f prefer a play to sing* ing." A battered guitar case steed )fi one corner of the room. Hit guitar he didn't forget, even if he doesn't sing in the film. "Sure I'll sing-it the tequffla moves me," he said. "But my* be tonight I'll just twist. Really, 1 can show you a thing or tw« about the twist." DR. I.
