"I'm hot even going out of the hoiice," Red says, "except to visit my old pal, Gene Fowler, who , just got out of the hospital." Other motion picture and TV celebrities feel much the same way as Red, but many of them aren't so lucky. Boh Hope will be jazzing things up for the armed forces in Iceland. Then he'll return to London to finish a movie with Katherine Hepburn. Also fogging it in Britain will be Vic Damone, wife Pier Angeli and baby son, Perry, and Swedish paatry, Anita Ekberg, who plans to «pend Christmas Day telephon- inf all her pals in the United Mates—including Frankie Sanatra. • • * Mexico will get It share of Hollywood film folk including Lana Turner, hubby Lee Barker, Anthony Quinn, Liliane Montevecchi and Steve Forrest.

ASSIGNMENT AMERICA By PHYLLIS BATTELLE (Cepyrigbt 1»S5 by INS) NEW YORK — The hot record d the 1955 Yuletide season is a medley of "Jingle Bells" and other dittieg rendered by a new combo aallcd "The Singing Dogs" — allegedly two German shepherds, two cbihuahuas-and a~~poodle who aria mezzo. Although this is undeniably a talented group, we doubt if their cite ever replaces the memorable 'M release titled "I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus." After all, can a quintet of foreign doge fill the same spot in the hearts of American music lovers as a snitching little 'boy soprano Irom the U.S.A.? Furthermore, the canine combo is rather isuspect at the moment. Even RCA Victor (pops department) confesses it is "almost hysterical" trying to find out if the dogs really do exist.' • • • . "We bought their recording 8i8 :ht unseen from the Metronome Record Co. of Sweden," admitted har- rassed Ann Fulchino, Victor pops oublicity head, "and now that 'Life' wants to do a picture story on the dogs, we can't seem to locate them. We've been trying all ever Europe. "We are not even sure," she choked delicately, 'that they still exist as a professional unit." Miss Fulchino admits that the company expects to make about $90,000 on the record whether the dogs are actively woofing or not, but it's "the principle of the thing" that concerns her. Here the record has sold 413 .000 copies in two brief weeks since its introduction—"making it bigger even than Rudolf, the Red-Nosed Reindeer"—and already people are .ocreamlng for a sight of the dogs. The public wants them. Hollywood wants themT , Ed Sullivan wants them. f-ing them. And on the front of the sheet music are pictures of the quintet: Caesar and King, the toass-vvoofing shepherds; Eearl and Puzzy, the treble chihuahuas, and Dolly, the mezzo poodle. "These pictures were sent to us from Sweden, too, and we took them in good faith and reprinted them. But now it turns out these might not really be the dogs at all...why, those might have been communist Borzois doing the singing, for all we know right now" • * » Meantime, in American homes, thousands of frustrated dogs are being given singing lessons in "Jingle Bells" which, according to (he sheet music, goes like this: Bow Wow-Wow, Bow Wow-Wow, Arfc-Arf Bow-Wow-Wow, Gr-Gr-Grr, Yip-Yip Yip Yip, Bow-Wow Arf-Arf Wow' This is not easy and if we were a dog, we'd saj^s nuts with it. Wc wouldn't even talk, unless there were a lot of bones in it for us. MONROEVILLE New Latin American Catholic Club Dines of the organization's first pub-'.Armitage is sponsor for the lie functions. Iclub. —Harlcy Hoffman Mrs. Manueli'.a Mendoza is shown giving three officers of the new Latin American Catholic Club a sample of the food served members of the club at its Christmas party at Holy Angels' school Saturday night. On the menu were popular Mexican dishes such as enchiladas, tostadas, tortillas, aros and huacamale. First in line .sampling the "spicy" food in (he hands of Mrs. Mendoza is Ray Ramon, chairman for the dinner: then club secretary-treasurer, John Malonado, and last is President Elias Quintera.

The dinner was sponsored by the newly-formed Latin American Catholic Club as one flandntky, 0., Tn*«., Dee. JO, 195S THE SANDUSKY REOISTCll-STAII*ltlWl 11 The purpose of the Latin American club is principally to assist Mexican people coming into the Sandusky area from the southwest states and Mexico to get better acquainted with the community in a social way, according to Elias Quintera, club president. The club now has a [membership of 35 people all of whom are permanent residents of Sandusky. Rev. William G. President Quintera said that most of Sandusky's Mexican people are employed at industries such as New Departure, Medusa Cement Co., Philco Corporation, Apex Electrical Mfg. Co. and the Barr Rubber Co. The albatross once was known as "Cape S'-eep," apparently because sailors sometimes used their skins as rugs.
