THE KINGSTON DAILY FREEMAN, KINGSTON, N. Y., FRIDAY EVENING, AUGUST 5,1955. FIVE THE MARQUEE T.V. — STAGE — RADIO — RECORDS — PEOPLE zzzzzz / z / z / zzzzzz Z a zzzzzzz THE RECORD SHOP: BUI Hayes has a gold record now, for “Davy Crockett” of course. But the trophy has ta share billing in the Hayes home — it is displayed next to, and Aial with, a gold plaque that reads: “Mary Hayes, Tulip Hill Bowling Allen Sweepstakes Winner.” That’s Mrs. Hayes, bowling champ. • • • The problem before the house is this: can yon caL Alan Dale a comeback kid? Even in his leanest years, he was making ISO^M annually. Pet it’s been a long time between hit records for the Brooklyn-born singer. Back in ’48 or thereabouts, he was one of the moet-likely-to-be- swooned-over crooners around. He was among the first singers on TV — “In the days when you had to put blue make-up on your lips”— and in general seemed like he was headed for stardust. Then came a chain of events. He was sick for better than a year, he had a string of so-so or worse records, he had bad handling. The result was he was off TV, his records made no noise and the only people who swooned over him were his mother, father and creditors. Now we come to a happy ending. A new manager, a relatively new affiliation with Coral records, good health—and two big hits in a row. First was “Cherry Pink and Apple Blossom White” and now “Sweet and Gentle.” His price for personal appearances has soared to $4,000 a week, he is in demand for benefits (a sure sign of fame returned) and he’s happy. Except he can’t go swimming. “That’s the price of fame,” Dale says. “I can’t go to the beach; I get mobbed. I try It once In a while. Go out and lie on the beach with the eyeglasses and all. I go to sleep. But pretty soon I hear a rustle all around me and It can’t be trees because this Is the beach. So I open my eyes and see a circle of 400 people all around. “ ‘Aren’t you Alan Dale?’ they ask. ‘No,’ I say, 'I just look like him.’ They just laugh and say ‘Sure, you’re Alan Dale.’ Then they start saying, ‘Where’s your Cadillac and chauffeur?’ What a laugh — I got a beat-up, dirty Pontiac. A four-wheeler. But they just hang around. So I come home.” Outside of not being able to go swimming, Alan is a happy man. He lives at home with his parents — despite his many years in show business, he’s still only 28 — and it’s a nice life. His mother is good at taking phone messages. Also cooking. His manager, Lou Capone, is doing right by him. His fans love him. His records are selling. Who needs a swim?

Thus, the record — obtainable for $5 through PVA Box 10, Times Square Station, New York, N. Y. It’s a good record, telling in song and narration the story of our nine national holidays.

Village Notes Port Ewen, Aug. 5—Due to extreme weather conditions which has increased the amount of water used and also due to the lack of rain, the Port Ewen Water District has requested that the residents restrict the watering of lawns and gardens to the hours of 7 to 9 p. m. Mrs. Edward Hotaling, who has been visiting Mr. and Mrs. Wilfred Terpening at their home in Nyack has returned to her home on Bayard street. Mr. and Mrs. Cortland D.

Heifer dhw Killed A heifer cow was killed by an automobile on Route 52 in the town .of Wawarsing near the Ulster-Sullivan county line at about 9 p. m., Thursday, Ellenville state police reported. The cow, which troopers said had apparently broken out of a pasture, was crossing the road when it was struck by a 1953 sedan owned and operated by Sampson Isseroff, 34, of Brooklyn. The cow was owned by Bertram Smith of Wood bourne. The Isseroff vehicle sustained damage to the left front fender, troopers said. When the weather stays hot, as it has recently, the Ruminator finds it even more difficult than usual to think about socioeconomic subjects. If I were able I should write on travel, or antiques, or something that is entertaining. However. I guess you’ll have to suffer along with me on what I -have in mind, or simply skip the column entirely. (You have the advantage over me: I have to write these pieces, but you don’t have to read them.) What is in my mind this week, as the news-events remain anticlimactic in character, is the idea that there is too much cocksureness in forecasting, too many attempts made to predict the unpredictable. A LETTER just received suggests this thought. I recently wrote in one of my “Letters” that some monetary observers did not agree with my “guess” that any over-all, re-inflationary pressure would not be witnessed until after a set-back from the prevailing boom. I referred to one monetary analyst who did not share my view, from whom I received this most interesting letter, from which Til quote:— “Your comments, as usual, were very much to the point— also your contrary point that a setback could develop. You easily could be right. My conclusions will never be any better than my ability to interpret correctly present monetary developments. If I misread these, my statements about future business activity will also be wrong. # “Really, all I claim is that It is easier to forecast monetary developments than it is to try to forecast business developments without paying any attention to monetary developments.” THE RUMIN ATOR feels exactly the same way about the theory of contrary opinion. If I misread general opinions — or wrongly estimate the degree of prevailing opinions—then I shall be “wrong” in my contrary conclusions. One of the Ruminator’s pet expressions is that “The Theory of Contrary Opinion is a ‘way of thinking,’ but let’s not overweigh it.” And one of this writer’s pet peeves is the bombastic, cocksure style one finds in much financial writing...and especial­ ly in a lot of financial advertising. Anyone with even a scanty knowledge of economic history knows there is no such thing as certainty in economic soothsaying. Indeed, there is no certainty in economic knowledge. Fallacious reasoning concerning trends is common: opinions based upon either false premises, or based upon what the individual wishes to, and hopes to see, happen. Wishful thinking creates much false thinking. FOR EXAMPLE, in the current “Angas Digest” (an economic forecasting service) eight fallacies in current thinking are mentioned. Doubtless any reader could think up additional ones. Such fallacies as confusing the wage-price spiral with monetary inflation and that much inflation is occurring at present, are common today. Similarly, it is common practice to “re-use” the same bullish arguments on the stock market, that have been used before. Or. to mention another fallacy, the idea of considering the rise in the prices of stocks as an addition to national wealth. Obviously, a fall in prices would wipe out, or reduce, this so-called addition to “wealth.” A rise in stock prices adds to the feeling of well-being, however. It seems to be a habit in advertising to play up the impossible. Having had some past experience in advertising, I recognize that sensationalism does attract attention. Sensational claims Appeal to greed, credulity, hopes, and traits of that nature However, when such claims go wTong, people are likely to remember. I CONFESS I don’t know precisely what purpose this essay may have. It was just something I have wanted to get off my chest. Nevertheless, there is one thing I do know: it is a fallacy to think that we know very much about the science of economics. Inasmuch as ther# is so much to learn before economic forces and motivations are thoroughly understood, it seems to me that those of us who write on the subject should do so with a certain humbleness of spirit. If we cah contribute to thinking and to “ruminating” then we have accomplished about all we can expect to accomplish. Hails Stand by Ike London, Aug. 5 <JP) —A leading member of the Soviet Union's Parliament today hailed President Eisenhower’s statement that Americans want to be friends with the Russians.

Mansfield (D.-Mont.) said today Communist northern Viet Nam has been guilty of “outright aggression” against the independent nation of Laos. He called for action under the eight-nation southeast Asia defense treaty. Mansfield spoke on the eve of his departure for a six-week study of situations in Indochina and Indonesia. He will confer with Ngo Dinh Diem, premier of free Viet Nam. Although he declined to confirm it, it was understood the State Department has urged him to make an on-the-spot survey and report his findings.

Larson of suburban Loudonville has been appointed acting state architect, succeeding Cornelius J. White, who resigned after serving for 10 years as state architect. John W. Johnson, state superintendent of public works, said yesterday that Larson would head the department’s newly created division of architecture. Larson had been serving as the department’s chief architect. A department spokesman said Larson had requested that he not be designated fulltime architect. His salary has not been determined yet. White was paid $16, 000 a year. ♦ --------As Pegler Sees It ment. However, the Central Intelligence agency, under Allen Dulles, the brother of John Foster,,has assisted him, Brown ancf| Dubinsky in stealthy political schemes in Europe financed in part by money wrung from Du- binsk’s needle-workers and provided, probably, in the greater part, by American tax-payers to the CIA. Americans may go to prison for failure to get up the money to finance the schemes of this cabal. Eisenhower has made two attempts to give the CIA a good reputation. James Doolittle, the three-star air force general, a test-pilot, grease-monkey and oil salesman by trade, otherwise unqualified to cope with such mysteries, made the first “investigation” for his friend, Ike. His “report” was secret but it was described in fuzzy terms as favorable. " Since then, General Mark Clark has made another inquiry. He was not given free access to all information. His “report,” likewise secret, specifically criticized the CIA for failure to obtain information which it should have obtained about conditions in Soviet Russia.
