I can’t think of a more logical place for saluting broad- I casting’! newsmen than from here, but then logic has rarely been the determining factor In arranging parties of this nature. ] The news headquarters of the networks are still located m New York, for example, which I may account In part for the fast two or three minutes per mitted the Washington report ers on the nightly 15-mlnute TV newscasts. But that’s another story. Anyway, while details of the Washington ent-ln are still to' be worked oat, the Mayflower Hotel will be the scene of the origination.

But a measure of the audience’! dis appointment can be estimated in the drop from 33.1 for the first half to 23.7 for the second half. Few cowboys, by the way, look good on the variety shows. ... An exception was Oen (Bat Masterson) Barry, who started lout as a song and dance man and demonstrated last Satur day, on Perry’s show, that he hasn’t lost his touch. On the next Bob Hope TV’er, March 13, filmed before the comic flew East for a medical treatment, he’ll have a slew of cowboys headed by Chuck (The Rifleman) Connors.

But that’s the most senti mental “businesses” for you. 1 The late TV and recording executive, who held the hands of so many stars up and down the ladder, was one v pf those übiquitous behind • the - scenes powers. If the program left one impression in the kindly blur, it was that Manie, in addition to his counseling, had a fan like admiration for the talent of his friends. The show, in fact, was pre cisely the kind he would have assembled himself for some worthy cause. He would not l have rued the sentiment, for ho was part of it. The accent, properly, was on entertainment and in the Frank Sinatra - Dinah Shore medley, from Di nah’s first hour TV show, the program reached its high point. It was a dandy. Perry Como, the host, han dled the chore simply, and all of the stars <Sir Caesar. Kay Starr, Nat Cole, and the others) performed well. It’s difficult to integrate a collection of num bers and the grand-guy trib utes into a smooth, cohesive production, but they came as close to doing it last night as they ever will. Production values were ex cellent. Some of the announced stars were cut and perhaps the inclusion of Eddie Fisher gave the producers some concern. On the other hand, it may have given them no concern at all. For this was Manle’s show, and this he would have liked. BH.
