They call him Doc Severinsen, but that's only an alias. His real name is Gabriel.- No one but the real Gabe, can blow the trumpet that way. Seveimsen delighted the fans at KRNT Theater Sunday" night so much they gave him a standing ovation at the conclusion of his 90-minute concert. The theater office reported that the show, sponsored by-the Des Moines J.aycees, drew 1,800 fans, who paid from $3 to $5 for tickets. Hearty Applause Severinsen led a 16-piece orchestra, made up of talented rrr u s i c i a n s from the' NBC Tonight Show band, through such numbers as "Aquarius," "Gentle on My Mind," "Get Tq- luiiMiimiMmiimiiimiiimmiimi REVIEWIIIIIIIIlllllllllll iiimmiimimimimiiimiiiiHimii gelherV' "Free Again," a medley of Beatle tunes and "Johnny-America." ... __.j._ _ All the numbers were heartily applauded for these were musicians who can read — and play — real music. How they can play! Pianists Ross Tompkins spun a dazzling medley of Duke Ellington tunes on the'keyboard, Arnic Lawrence starred as a saxophone soloist on several numbers, including "Who Can I Turn To?' 1 . . Top Soloists Drummer Eddie Shaughnessy put on a hand-warming exhibfc tion on the drums and Sonny Russo contributed some excellent trombone solos.

There - were 41 known survi- , vors and one known dead, the Coast Guard said. ' Speculation grew Sunday that the 21 others had gone to •the"bottom with the plane's fuselage because all were rc- p o'r ted wearing lifejackcts and would have been floating in the water if they had got free. But a Coast Goard '• spokesman said: "We're not giving up on the missing." The pilot of a private rescue plane, reported seeing bodies near the crash site, but the Coast Guard said the sighting .could not be confirmed. Search planes from the U.S. Navy carriers Guadalcanal and America combed the area Sunday, but turned up nothing, the Coast Guard spokesman said. The DC-9 ran out of fuel Saturday afternoon while seeking haven from a pelting rain driven by high winds and went into the water 33 miles east of St. Croix in the U.S. Virgin Islands. The jet was on lease from Overseas National Airways to A.EJii. Antillean Airways, a Djgfh line based in Curacao.

Chief auctioneer David Weisz, opening the bidding, said, "As we gather on this sound stage at M-G-M studios we are witnessing a dual event — the end of one era of film-making and the beginning of an exciting new period of picture-making.
