Sometimes lie stands behind her and sails his hat past her head. "Yon must learn poise." he screams. "What would you do If yon were singing at the Met and a bat Hew in through the wings? Scream and run away?" But Belly likes it best when she sings with Ihe tenors from Ihc Met, who arc there to have their voices checked. "Don't minri these big shots from the Met." Julio says, "Someday you and f will sing an opera together, and then you will sing many more operas." Sings on Network When Ihe P. J. Rlltcr Company called to inform Dotty that she had been chosen for their prognim on Ihe AE1C network she was very ex- cllcd. First she telephone Julio liloK Ihe good news. Her mother was very happy. Then her father came home, and he was so excited he had a heart allack. It was Christmas We, and a week later he was dead. The other afternoon I sat for a while hi her SSth Street, apartment and listened lo her story.
