MONDAY, AUGUST 17, 195. 1 ? BMTIIEA'II.I.E (ARK.) COURIER NEWS SHOP By RICHARD KLEINER NEA Staff Correspondent NEW YORK - (NEAI _ Every Wednesday Is publishers' c|ay at Capitol Records. That's the day when song writers and publishers play their latest creations for Sid Feller, Capitol's A & n man. That means "Artists and Repertoire." He tells which singers to sing what songs. »» ( I sat with Feller, a big. good- Riatured man, during part of ono publishers' day. With him. I heard the songs — the good sonrjs. the bad sonirs. and, by far the greatest number, ihe in-between songs. Most of the men adopted a jittery air of bravado. "Here's the first piece of juk, Sid," one said as he pulled out a demonstration record. "I'm afraid -DICK'S PICKS- POP SINGLES: "San Antonio Rose" (Joe "Fingers" Carr and his ragtime band, Capitol); "The Story of Three Loves" (Jerry Murad. harmonica, with Richard Hayman and orchestra, Mercury); "Till They've All Gone Home" (Gisele MacKenzie, Capitol); "it Can't Be Wrong" (Billy Eckstlne, MGM); "Just You, Just Me" (Barbara Ruick, also MGM); "I Love You" <Broc Peters. Columbia); "Jazz Me Blues" (Perez Prado, RCA). POP ALBUMS: Wally Rose, playing ragtime piano pieces in a nearly forgotten style, is as authentic and realistic as the professor in old-time honky-tonks and as precise as the down-front Ivory beaters of silent movie days . . . It's « Columbia LP. CLASSICAL: Five piano transcriptions of notable Bach organ compositions, by Gregory Sandor, for Columbia ... on the same label, a Strauss treasury, tvith Eugene Ormandy conduct- Ing the Philadelphia Pops Orchestra. to say it's a hit." Feller played the record, following the sheet music as he listened. The man was right; it was junk. Most brought records, but a few played the piano and sang. There were some awful lyrics (horrible example: "The whole world smells like one big: rose") nnd some poor, trite melodies. But Feller, who admits it took him a while to Icar nhow to nay no, can turn down a song w^h 8reat kindness. "I don't think it's smart enough," he lold one writer, "but that's personal opinion, of course." Most of them took the turndowns as strictly business. "This is real bad," Feller said to one ninn. "Yeah, it stinks." said the man , unemotionally. And he reached in I his brief case for the next soiifr. I On an average Wednesday. Feller will haev 30 or 35 appointments, nnd listen lo perhaps 100 songs. Out of this, maybe he'll get j a half-dozen worth hearing a Bee-1 ond time. Some publishers come every week, others wait until they have something "sure-fire" to show. In an effort to sell their song, some publishers will snap their fingers and clap their hands while listening to their song, pretending the melody and rhythm are so infectious they can't help themselves. It's a pretty futile effort; Feller is completely detached. It's equally futile to high pressure. "That is a great song," one man said, after playing his number. Feller gave him a long look. "When are you going to record it?" he retorted. But always he is helpful and [ dnd. He otfen made constructive, technical musical suggestions! And with one man, he sat down ind outlined a complete new lyric i .reatment for a particularly inept ' ;ffort. ; After he was gone, Feller said, sadly, "No talent. Nice guy, but no talent." That's the way it goes every week, on publishers' day THE POPULAR SIDE: Every-I Jody's "covering," as they say in I ,he trade, the suddenizoom of "God ' Bless Us All." Newest entrants- Capitol's Molly Bee, Mercury's Baby "am . . . Now you can play games in your record player: Mood Records has disked "Tv Rhumba" with Bob Bachelder and orchestra rhum- bling around with the theme songs from 12 TV shows, ranging from Dragnet to Mr. Peepers. ON THE CLASSICS: First time on records is "The Faithful Shepherd," Handel's rare three-act opera, an August Columbia release. OPERATION "SMOOCH"One of the first delights enjoyed by Pic. Frederick D. Brazee, after his repatriation by the Korean Reds, was to kiss Lucy Maloney, a Red Cross worker from Peru, Ind. B.razee, of TerryviJle, Conn., took part in "Operation Bij Switch."

The core of Ihe !cchni< ( ue hy which AA has worked what oflcn seems like a miracle in the lives of men and women is N'ol religious, hut spiritual. Not mcnla). Not psychological — though if is all (hrec of these also — hut spiritual. We feel that a man's religious views, if any, should he his own. The membership embraces Jew and Gentile, Catholic and Prot. eslnnt. all Creeds, denominations ,and faiths. They all make spiritual progress by translating this universal and central truth of their release from alcohol into their own faith. Man is nol a single self. There is his greedy self.
