Godfrey's TV Career Shines

NEW YORK UPI i Skilled iur-

Arthur Godfrey a new lease on
life and videotape has given his
TV career a great big boost.
For bis return to broadcasting
after a lung cancer operation last
April, the of redhead appeared on
CBS TV Wednesday night in a
one-hour special that was taped
in Hawaii, on his farm in Vir
ginia, and in a New York studio.
It was Godfrey's finest TV hour,
thanks to the imaginative uses of
tape techniques. We were taken
through a studio door to emerge
on his farm. We went into the
water in Hawaii and came up in
Godfrey's pool at the Beacon Hill
farm. One sequence attempted to
blend ballet dancing with a steer
chase. While it had its awkward
moments, it was a worthy experi
ment. One sequence feutured a

lice stopped a truck here Wednes
day night, inspected it and or
dered the driver to get out and
walk. They said the steering
wheel was too slack, the hand
brake was useless, one headlight,
both tail lights and the stop light
were broken, there were no indi
cators, windshield wipers or mir
rors, all tires were worn and the
back fenders were missing. But
they said the motor was in per

Anyhow, it was an easy show to
Godfrey's special brand of en
tertainment, which eschews polish
as a performing talent in favor of
the more durable talent for "tap
root" communication through
word and song, is a national treas
ure. Since we almost lost it a few
months back, there is all the
more cause to appreciate it now.
Fellows like Jack Paar, Art Link

Clark can't and probably never
will, match his style no matter
how they try.
I also salute him for singing
and dancing and ninning out of
breath. Breathless singers are
rare on TV these days, and when
they can pre record sengs and
synchronize their mouths on ca

comes along and shows up all that

Nikita Demonstrates 'Sharp',
Mind In Session With Press
WASHINGTON (UPI) Nikita
Khrushchev has demonstrated
once again that he is a master
of verbal give-and-take particu
larly when it 'comes to defending
his political beliefs.
At his appearance at the Na
tional Press Club Wednesday, the
Soviet premier skillfully parried
what he described as "provoca
tive" questions, and used others
as a springboard for long restate
ments of Communist ideology.
Khrushchev, who came here
with the avowed intention of melt
ing the ice of the cold war, bore
down hardest on a basic article
of Communist faith the inevitable
universal triumph of Communism.
The audience whom Khrush
chev once in a slip of the tongue
addressed ' as "comrades" ton-

GATHER FOR ECLIPSE
LAS P ALMAS, Canary Islands
a PI' World scientists gath
ered here today for the solar
eclipse of Oct. 2, which should be
seen to best advantage from this
sisted mostly of distinguished re
porters often described in Commu
nist jargon as 'lackeys of the
"Capitalism To Die"
They were told firmly but po
litely, in answer to a question,
that history foreshadows the inev
itable death of capitalism, to be
replaced by the '"more progres
sive" Communist order.
With equal emphasis Khrush
chev explained away the state
ment he once made to Western
ambassadors that "we shall bury
you" by saying he had not intend
ed to assume the 1 role of the
"grave digger of capitalism."
Khrushchev's remarks on capi
talism followed - a Tamiliar pat
tern. Had he known Shakespeare as
well as he know Russian folklore,
he might have been tempted to
paraphrase Mark lAntony'i oft
quoted "I come to bury Caesar,
not to praise hint'.: in this say:
"I did not come here to praise
you or bury you, but only to an
nounce your doom." ,
Most Moderate Utterance
The speech itself, was one. of the
premier's most 'moderate utter
ances. It was an jessay on the
need for improving ; Soviet-American
relations and . settling global
problems. It was conspicuously de
void of threats, - recrimination
and verbal bricks, i ,
It was under questioning by re
porters that Khrushchev waxed
foxy, eloquent and .witty. Some of
the questions those', dealing with
Hungary, the status of Jes in the
Soviet Union, and- Khrushchev's
personal role in the Stalinist tyr
annymight have "embarrassed a
more conventional Communist.
But not Khrushchev. For a man
who is by reputation hotheaded,
impetuous aad unpredictable he
proved to be-a'naster of re
straint. "I will not be provoked
by any questions." he said, "or
j do anything which ' would- hinder
tne improvement of our relations."
