Ed Sullivan Unimproved In 12 Years By CYNTHIA LOWRY AP TV-Radio Writer NEW YORK (AP) — The Ed j Sullivan show was 12 years old Sunday night. It would be interesting to take another look at that first program again. In fact, t might have been more interest- ng than what we did see. I remember the program used to be called "The Toast of the! Town," that it started off with! dancing girls and that there used! to be acrobats, jugglers and an-i imal acts. Sunday night's CBS show was, not quite typical of today's Sullivan hour— no drill teams, nvlitary. §> JAM SWA WASHINGTON (Aft - VfW President Richard M. Nixon art House Republican Leader Chattel A.

East Alton Enterprise Auto Salvage, too, Has Changed During Years EAST ALTON — With the transition from cobblestone streets to present day blacktop thoroughfares the auto salvaga business of Lou and Sol Rosen, East Alton Auto Parts. 333 E. St. Louis Ave., has also made changes. U was 25 years ago this month that the brothers opened, what they consider the first auto salvage lot in the entire Alton area at its present, location. In those days East Alton avenue was just a cobblestone street used primarily for local travel and what is now called Old St. Louis Road, which intersects East Alton avenue just west of Rosen's, was the busy highway used by people traveling between St. Louis and towns to the north. Through the years the pair served area residents with used auto parts, but due to what they term a particular need they have now abandoned the salvage yard and devote all their i time to the sale of new auto parts Including speed equipment and other auto accessories. They are located on four choral groups or imitations of our! host. There were, however, hisj pet comics, Wayne and Shuster.j doing a heavy-handed burlesque of "What's My Line?" There was Victor Borge in one his vintage comedy bits. And, of course, there was a prize fighter taking a bow from the stage and a golf champion taking cne from! the audience. "Summer Hero" proved a mildly suspenseful drama on NBC's j Sunday night live mystery hour. It was the tale of an aging matinee idol who believed he was being blackmailed by a teen-ager— a situation which writer Charlotte Armstrong resolved without homicide. As usual in this series, it was well acted and directed. Patty McCormack did very nicely playing a healthy teen-ager after all] these years in angelic-looking I monster roles.
