The Ralph Edwards show
dipped into the life of ABC-TV's
Dick Clark, who was tagged by
Edwards as "America's number
one disk jockey-host." For' a
change, Edwards understated the

five afternoon shows a week, a
Saturday nighttimer and another

no one's fault. Nothing much

President Eisenhower warned

Progress toward disarmament

Western leader to refuse a meet
