Rock V Roll m Music Heads for the Grove By HUGH MULLIGAN AP Newsfealurcs Writer AS IT MUST to alt raucous noises that periodically assail the ear drums of the American pub-i lie, the musical boneyard is finally beckoning to the fantastic fad that's known as rock 'n roll. A few of its more celebrated cantatas, like the tender "You Ain't Nothing But a Hound Dog" and the triumphant "Shake, Rattle and Roll," may be heard again from time to time in misty-eyed medleys of old songs, but the bulk of this cannibalistic caterwauling will lie buried forever beside such mementos of other by-gone eras as the "The Three Lit tie Fishies." "T h e Fuehrer's Face" and "Don't Hit your Grand ma With a Shovel, Boys, It Makes a Bad Impression on her Mind." Final Rites Early this week the honorary pall bearers, in the person of 18 internationally famous disc jockeys, arrived in New York to attend the final rites, which appropriately enough took place in a musty movie studio hard -fcy Manhattan's Hell's Kitchen. In the best traditions of the musical industry they quietly disposed of the still warm rock 'n' • roll corpse by burying it under a mountain of publicity for its heir apparent, known in the trade as "the new music." The shotgun wedding of Madison Avenue to Tin Pan Alley has failed so far to come up with a name for the new music but it goes under the working title of "Ballad With a Beat." It will get its first big plug in the forthcoming movie ''Jamboree," which further accounts for the presence of the disc jockeys at the studio. All appear in the picture to give their official blessing to the new music. Among them are Howard Miller of Chicago, Dick Clark of Philadelphia! Al Jarvis of Hollywood, Zenas Sears of Atlanta, Milt Grant of Washington, Gerry Myers of Ottawa: Keith Sandy 0/ Toron to. and Chris Howland of Co logne and Werner Gotze of Munich, Germany. The plot never gets complicated enough to interfere with the 18 disc jockeys who parade across the screen to introduce the 20 new songs. The songs are performed by such recording stars as Count Basie and his orchestra, the Four Coins, Fats Domino, Connie Fran cis, Joe Williams,, Jody Sands, Frankie Avalon and several other reformed rock V rollers. What will the new music be like? Singing Back to Singing Chris Howland, a pleasant Eng lishman who lives' in Cologne and does a German disc jockey show over West Deutchen Rund •funk and an English disc jockey show for the British Forces Net work, described it as "a type of song that will give singing back to the singers." The old fashioned love ballad has replaced the hillbilly yodel that formed the basis of rock 'n roll and the beat has been slowed down to something resembling a combination of rhumba and tango. One disc jockey, evidently having, trouble adjusting musical gears, acidly compared it to a 78-speed rock V roll record played on a 45 turntable. Most, however, agreed that the melody would be easier on the ears, the lyrics easier on the intellect, and the emotional effect more dulcifying on teen-aged fadists than the current frantic pops leaders. Skeptics might say the only thing new about the new music is its name —or lack of one— but its tempered tempo, with or without a perceptible beat, sure beats rock 'n' roll. And it's bound to revive the singing fortunes of balladeers like Eddie Fisher, Vic Damone and others. Will Elvis survive? What the moving finger of Tin Pan Alley will write, nobody knows.

Atty. Gen. Oscar Strauss told the Iowa Executive Council, however, that the patrolmen could wear uniforms if they bought them themselves. George Marchi, division director, asked the council recently for authority for the division to provide uniforms for its men.
