TV Throws a Block in Marriage
Of Young Trombonist, Harpist
------------------------------------ By BILLY ROSE------------------------------------
A couple of years ago one of the staff musicians at NBC—a trom
bonist I’m going to call Charlie Michaels—decided he was finally in a
position to realize his two big ambitions: one, to marry the swing harpist
he had been keeping company with, and two, to buy a house and a piece
of land in New Jersey.
For the first year everything was peaches and grade-A for the Time

Feed-saving programs from the agricultural colleges
stress the importance of getting rid of rats, cattle grubs,
lice, worms and other insects and parasites that may sap
an animal's vitality and interfere with efficient feed use.
Dr. Hess products can help to avoid feed waste from those
causes. We especially recommend the following:
ANTURAT —really kills rats, the worst feed wasters. Effec
tive in baits, or as a tracking poison when rats refuse frozen baits.
CATTLE GRUB KILLER—-made according to revised
U. S. D A. formula. Beef cattle freed of grubs gain weight
faster, cows give more milk.
POW DERED LOUSE KILLER—dust it on cattle, horses,
sheep and goats for lice and ticks. Lousy cows, freed of lice,
give 10% to 15% more milk.
DRYCIDE—a dry dip you can use for hog lice in winter
without wetting hogs or bedding.
SIX_new and better rooat paint for control of poultry lice.
Comes in can with handy applicator spout.
Let us tell you about these and other Dr. Hess products for
stretching your feed supply.
