Bob Burns, who with his “bazooka” has be come nationally known for his radio broadcasts and motion picture work, for many years looked like a failure. He was born in Van Buren, Ark., in 1896, and was always fond of music. His first “bazooka” was a horn made from a piece of pipe welded to a funnel, because he had nothing else to play. After two years in college, he joined some friends in Oklahoma raising pea nuts. Bob gave that up to go back to Van Buren where he joined a minstrel troupe at three dollars a week. He tried to get a theatrical job in New Orleans, next he tried New York, with no luck, and went to Little Rock, Ark. There, he failed at trying to sell advertising on com mission. During the World war, Bob Burns was in the marines, was a crack rifle shot, and entertained the sgl diers with his “bazooka.” After the war, he started a concession on the boardwalk at Atlantic City, running a game of chance. He married a girl who worked in another conces sion and, .together, they started a dance hall but it failed. Failure after failure. And in the midst of his troubles, his son was bom. But then Bob Bums got a job in vaudeville, and in a few short years he was at the top of the entertain ment world, with contracts for stage, motion pictures, and radio. His “bazooka” in which he had such faith, but which seemed such hopeless comedy to many people, is with him today and nationally known. STOCK SALES For sale 9 shoats. Clarence Young, phone 510-Y.
