NEW YORK Fred Allen, th
flat-voiced comedian with the as
tringent wit, uses left-over gags
the way a thrifty housewife makes
a hash from he remains of the
"The script always run over
time," the comedian explained af
ter a rehearsal of his half hour
radio show. "We have to cut it to
fit, but we never throw, a way any
thing we can possibly use. Of
stuff that is purely topical. Take
Noise Abatement week gags. You
couldn't use those after Noise
Abatement week has passed."
But except for such humor, tiec'
firmly onto the time element, al
most everything cut .from one
week's show is pretty apt to appear
in a subsequent one.
Take, for instnnce, the dialogue
between Allen and his announcer
Kenny Delmar, on a recent Sun
day show. Delmar remarked that a
chemist hajLpredicted whiskey of
the future could be made of wood
Then ensued some chatter, cli
maxed by Allen's quip: "When n
man picks up his cocktail he'll see
a knothole in his martini,"
This bit, Allen explained, was
salvaged from an earlier show. The
sequence, however, was much long
er in the rehearsal and contained
cracks about people calling "tim
ber" instead of "bottoms up," and
about drinks really being on the
house. Presumably these jokes will
are the best gags and when music
is more important."
In the show under discussion,
the guest star was Oracle Fields.
When it' came time to bob the
script, a couple of pages of lines
between Allen and Miss , Fields
were taken out but all of Miss
Field's musical numbers remained
"In this case," Allen said, "we
couldn't cut down on the music.
But we could take out a whole
sequence, or bob a line here and

Mrs. Nussbaum, another Allen
character, was temporarily depriv

timely, so it wouldn't be surprising
if they showed up next week. The
deleted lines ran like this:
J Utti Nussbaum: "By me, in the

Mrs. N.: "I could be Nature

The reference to the popular

noted by Allen.

said. "Fred 'and his three writers
