“What’s the matter honey, don’t you love Flip any more?”

for over a year. Originally, pro
duced by IVOR, Henry Morgan
left the air because, as he put it
on one of his programs, “I’m do
ing a lot of work and not getting
paid for it" or something to that
effect. His programs made fre
quent reference to "Tommy As
bestos" whose al3o frequent mar
riages made the front page of
many a paper. Occasionally they
would run old records for the
beiiofit and they were really old.
This week saw the start of the
second year of broadcasting for
the BLUE network. It was: in
corporated as ati independent
company January 10 of '42 after
operating far 15 years as one of
the NBC networks. At the time
of the incorporation there were
11Q station outlets with the
BLUE. Today there are 146.
Incidentally it is interesting to
note that only 20 per cent of
BLUE time is sponsored, leaving
the rest of the time to be of sus
taining nature. An average of
two' hours a day in the network
schedule is turned over for pro
motion of government welfare
ard national morale.
Another anniversary that ra
dio does not need to be proud
about, is tire “Good Will Hour's"
seventh birthday. I'm still waiting
to hear the jerk that worked up
a mad on Phil Baker's “Take It
or Leave It" when he missed the
question, and said that he was
going to see Mr. Anthony put in

program. . . .

What Kinda Party?’
How About All-Stag?
By FRED BECKWITH
Perplexed members of the fairer sex are asking themselves
these days, “What kind of a party shall I throw?” And it’s
about time they cleaned house on their dormant ingenuity.
Faced with an appalling lack of manpower, thanks to the cur
rent selective service programs and army and navy enlistments,
the comely lasses of Oregon must adjust their social functions
As long as it is permissable to
throw in a feasible suggestion,
why not give the “no-date” idea
some due consideration?
This conclusion is practical for
the following reasons:
1. Members of our armed forces,
upon being invited to a party, will
attend said party if they do feel
obligated to escort a young lady;
(2) The soldiers or sailors may
have to leave the party early,
and will be able to excuse them
selves with less embarrassment if
they do not have the responsi
bility of seeing that Jane gets
If you bring Jane, you might
not get a chance to talk to that
brunette in the corner.
If you do not bring Jane, you
will get a chance to meet new
Socially speaking, from a host
ess’s standpoint, it is far easier
to plan for a mixed party of thir
ty persons than it is for a couple^,
pairing arrangement of like nurr^
her. The whole atmosphere is of
a more informal nature.
The only responsibility in the
whole system is finding a way to
transport the young ladies to and
from the party. If somebody in
the crowd has a station wagon,
all difficulties are immediately
Party-goers are beginning to
use the street car and their own
two feet more and more these
The hostess can conduct her
own survey of ideas among the
crowd; throw the party open to
creative suggestions, let everyone
have a personal hand in the plan
