Speaker: Eugene Rivers, writer-critic. Elmer T. Morris, president of the West 125th St. Realty Corp., listed as owners of the Apollo Theatre, says in his Chapter II bankruptcy peti tion that the famed theatre "intends to obtain third-party advances with which it will resume movie and theatrical productions" by mid-June. Th.e petition adds that the Apollo "expects to receive the support of the local communi ty" in its effort to resume operations. More Apollo: The Apollo Theatre, once the entertain ment capital of Harlem, is the inspiration for a new musical, The Apollo. . .It Was Just Like Magic," due for Broad way after a tryout in Washington in mid-July.

In Minneapolis, Benjie McHie, the city's most promi nent black disk jockey, reportedly left KQRS after the new program director told him he sounded "too black." He had been with the station for six years, but Alan Young, who took over programming for the rock station said McHie's weekly jazz program didn't fit the format. Lionel Hampton was the subject of "The House With Music In It" and Tony Brown profiled the man, behind the music on VTony Brown's Journal". They, discuss the Lionel Hampton House, a 355-apartment housing project and the Gladys Hampton Houses, a 205-unit complex named for his late wife, both located in Harlem.
