D. •••••••••••••••••••••A** THAT GOSH AWFUL sound made by these so-called bands is a pain in the ear as well as the neck. The performance Sunday by Duke Ellington and Ella Fitzgerald is a case in point. They had a song and neither paid any attention to the music. Particularly nauseating was a so-called trumpet or cornet solo by a sweating gent who puffed his cheeks and made the instrument squeal like a pig with its tail caught in a door. This stuff isn't music. It goes way back to the jungles of South America and Africa, to the Indians, and to other such originators of pagan sound. Frankly the whole thing is so lousy it is an insult to a musical mind. The Duke can play sweet, music with his orchestra so why inflict this junk on the public? WHILE ON the subject whatever happened to the idea expressed in the song—"A pretty girl is like a melody". Phooey—if any girl fancied herself like that stupid sound she has rocks in her head. The same is true of tho Beatles and their like with their long hair and nothing else to recommend them. Sure, the Old Goat is a stuffy old fogy end likes Lawrence Welk and similar music makers—at least until Lawrence murders the language in introducing something. AND STILL BURNING on the subject—those television programs named Hullabaloo and Shindig are a sight for unsore eyes. They have the same beat- beat tempo and the boys and girls stand around and wiggle like they were being shot with heavy jolts of electricity. Where they get the muscles to do those waggles has the Old Goat puz zled. At first sight they may seem to be indecent, but to the Old Goat after a study of ten minutes they just become silly and stupid. The whole thing is sexless, and if they all wore slacks you couldn't tell one brand from another. The Old Goat thinks the world belongs to the young, but whopeeey, what a world they are building if this is the sweet music they'll remember when they're old and gray as "our song". Have you noticed it's the songs of 20 to 40 years ago that are played by the big time music makers—not this jungle junk. OH NOI In England a girl named to be Miss England is a "dog beautician". Wonder what LBJ would think of that when lifting his beagles by the ears? What has become of the mutt that used to follow tho kids and have fun with them? Now the dog must be beautified, have nail polish on its paws, and hair curled and cut and set. This is really a dog's life for the' dogs. People who do such a thing to a friendly animal, so-called man's best friend, are some kind of a nut, THE POWERS THAT be in this country are getting all heated up on the lack of gold in the Fort Knox vaults, and how other countries want ours right now, They are asking people not to go abroad—to stay at home to save that gold for ourselves. The Old Goat wonders what would happen if the decree went out that the bangles and beads the women wear to decorate themselves should be turned in to conserve the gold supply. It would be quite a hunk of stuff if it were all turned in to save the country.-Maybe it'd be easier to fight a war to take some away from somebody else rather than have the women riled up at home. NORTH CAROLINA is the latest state to have a legislator introduce a bill igainst one. armed driving by the kids. This anti-necking bill has gome up in several stgtes. Whit really is needed is § bili to mike the girls sit on their own side of the front seat instead of crowd the poor innocent boy into a corner. THIS IS THillME. of year when the Old Goat is in happy contemplation of what the girls will wear and call hats, coins Raster. Some of last year's were <J%s.
