Basil Rysdale and Andre Barouch did the announcing and the songs were done by Dick Powell, Buddy Clark and Freida Gibson. Now if that takes you back how about "Amos and Andy and the Kingfish," or "Lun-n- Abner" at their jot-era-down store Ben Bernie might be heard to exclaim "Yowza- yowza". Oxydols "Own Ma Perkins" was one of the longest running soap-operas along with "Lorenzo Jones" and "SLella Dallass." Edgar Bergen and Charlie McCarthy kept everyone laughing along with their sidekicks Mortimer Snerd and Effie Klinker, while Jack Benny opened his show with "Jello again, this is Jack Benny." Announcer Don Wilson, singer Dennis Day, Jack's wife, Mary Livingston, Phol Harris and his Orehestra and the zany Eddie (Rochester) Anderson made up the regular cast. Jack's rued with Fred Allen always stimulated the program, "Aliens Alley" on Fred Allen's show featured his wife, Portland, Mrs. Nussbaum, Senator Claghorn and wasn't there Mr. Peavy, who always referred to his wife as "Sweetie Face" or was that on the "Fibber" McGee and Molly show? Gale Gordon, who later played on the Lucy TV Series was Mayor La Trivia who Fibber always confused and the little girl from next door was played by Molly. She always said "Hi mister watch-you-doin?" And when Fibber opened his closet door and everything came tum- bling out it usually broke up the audience. They were live shows in those days including the bloopers. Actually Mr. Wimple was the mild man- nered man on Fibber McGee whose "Sweetie-face" dominated his every move, Milquetoast of comic fame These characters created from real life in the imaginations of writers kept people occupied and forgetfull of their daily problems. They looked at the humerous side of "Homo Sapiens" and they made sport of the bad guys and politicians who seemed to be always exploiting folks. Nowadays the realism in entertainment is just too overwhehning and the tide must turn again soon before people start to believe it all. Fortunately that little knob on the TV. STILL SAYS "On- Off" and if you're lazy like me you have one of those deely-bobs that changes the channels from your easy chair, hnagine what it was like when the first radios had earphones and the whole family had to take turns- Chaos! Well. its not my role 1o be a critic so just overlook my idle comments and take yourself back to 1934 when Katherine Hepburn, Joan Bennett and Jean Parker played in "Little Women" and Will James brought to the screen the immortal story "Smoky" which el-starred Ralph Bellamy who today is still cranking them out on TV and the movies. Let's hear it for Ralph! In 1934 it was announced that Mayor Rossi of San Francisco would visit the Ci'rus Fair, according to Jact Menihan, secretary of the Chamber of Commerce. The mayor was no stranger to Sonoma County, having spent many vacations at Skaggs Springs resort which in- cidentally will be underwater when the Warm Springs dam is completed, which doesn'l mean thai I'm against the dam, just reporting the facts- -huff said. The opening day of the Citrus Fair 1934 will have the 35 pc. Santa Rosa band and the State Fish exchange will bring its animated display to llib0r Cloverdale Transportaticn Questionnaire t41tlng. to determine the need for public transportation services. sTBce is welcome in determining how many people desire such services, ot Schedule, service areas, and types of services desired. )J PUbl tc tr , .... ansporta.tton were available to you in the Cloverdale Iz , ,uuu YOI use lt? :) Yes If so, how often?

On the social side Mrs. First Bingo game of the year, January 23 The first Bingo game of the year sponsored by the William Russell Ledford Post 293, American Legion will be held on Wednesday, January 2.3 at 7:30 pro. As announced previously the black out game (last game at about I0 p.m.) will be a $100 game; it will be the richest game in town in many years. It's hoped that enough interest will be shown that will allow the Legionnaires to make the $100 prize game a permanent feature. Everyone is invited to play American Legion Bingo. To add to the fun the Legion suggests you call some of your friends and make a party out of the evening. There will be plenty of free coffee for the players. The local Legion Post uses the proceeds from the Bingo games to pay for the Children's Christmas Party.

Total attendance was over 1400 toe-tappin, foot- slam,ping spectators along with 24 participants in the Junior Junior-Junior Divisions, and 39 in the Open Division. The winners of the Jr. - Jr. contest were Tricia Brown, Christine Crabill and Linnelte Lane. In the Jr. Division Randy Pollard, Shelly Zelazny and Cass Pujol look the honors. Alva Ingrahm once again won the award for oldest fiddler; and the Open Div. winners were Tiny Moore, Hughie Smith and Paul Shelasky. The judges had a tough time deciding as all the con- testanls were in rare form. Mistress of Ceremonies "'aunl" Edith Thompson did a magnificent job as usual and Buffalo Bob Brittain of Redwood Valley, who sup- plied Ihe sound system, supplied some great old-lime music as did (he Long Valley Pickers from up Laytonville way.
