(Editor's Note; If you've ever wondered how a radio comedian puts his show together, here's an inside look Into broadcast ing studio at rehearsal time.) ' By Cynthia Lewry AP Newsfeatures Writer 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 Sunday roast. "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 intact. "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 there." i One rule in writing shows is hard and fast: they are always too long, pot too short. The writers Would rather cut after a reiienisil than have to natch up and pull out a show with new material. Mr. and Mrs. Math Owens and daughter, Mary Lou, left Friday to visit Mrs. Owen's son and daugh ter, Mr. and Mrs. Arhur Lennox, in Corpus Christi, Tex. Dr. and Mrs. H. T.

This seems very obvious until we examine these objects more closelv and find that there is an individual com prehension or perception in appre ciating simplicity. Not that this is necessarily the answer, but if peo ple would think of everything they say before they say it and consider the consequences and influence of me acts they perform, there might be less to reeret and more to be happy about in the minds of peo ple. What I propose to do is to set before the renders of Carteret County some of my thoughts and ideas about life. These ideas, while being the result of concen trated thought, are presented here with the intention' of invoking thought on thepart of the public of this newspaper. Many people have often asked m Why and while my usu al reason' is an overpowering con tagion in art which I feel to be indomitable, I can honestly say that my purpose in this venture is to try to awaken people to the vast horizon of understanding that comes from thought and, as men tioned before, an invincible nymph from the depths of appreciation that makes me want to let the whole world know of my Great Love. And besides, I like to write. WRITERS (Continued From Page Four) Linda sweeps in. Angry dia logue. Rex fiddles with, the fas tener, yanks It. R-r-ripl A cascade of pearls from Linda's shattered necklace, and Harrison holds the dress top in his hands. Linda flees, covering her bosom. The scene is right. Applause from the crew. The picture, in which Harrison plays a-symnhony conductor, marks his inevitable Hollywood introduc tion to slapstick comedy. ' In his native Britain he was known prin cipally for smart drawing-room stuff. Hitherto in Hollywood he has played a Siamese king, a sea captain's ghost, and a Mississippi river gambler. In the current epic he has set a room afire, been sprayed with a fire hose, pretend ed to-slit Linda's throat (all in good fun, kids), and fallen thru a cane-bottomcd chair. n an. Joyj slapstick,, he says. I wonder. Orthopedic Clinic Today tDr. Hugh Thompson is holding the regular orthopedic clinic, be ginning 12 today in the New Bern Heaun center. Allen's rehearsal ran over al most five minules in that instance, and 'plenty of material was chopped from the script before it went on the air. Most of it will show up on late programs. One gag which hit the cutting room floor and undoubtedly will be heard on the air sometime soon, opened the talk between Allen and the character Titus Moody. Allen told him he looked sour. "You'd have a sour look to if you dropped your teeth in the vinegar,' barrel, replied Titus Moody, "my mouth tastes like my tongue's been dilled." That was deleted in the inter ests of time, but only temporarily. Mrs. Nussbaum, another Allen character, was temporarily depriv ed of a couple of lines. They are 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 toodjif am a rustic." i Allen: "Really?" Mrs. N.: "I could be Nature Boy's sister, Nature Girl." The reference to the popular song, coupled with Mrs. Nuss baum's accent, drew a smile from the pianist a reaction carefully noted by Allen. "Allen spends about 60 hours a week getting that half-hour pro gram together," one of his aides said. "Fred 'and his three writers start working on the script more than a week in advance. They read newspapers from all over and get around. They start with a rough sketch. By the Thursday be fore the show, it's finished and usually it runs minutes overtime." Allen couldn't explain exactly how the job of molding the script to the 30-minute time allotment was accomplished. "That's a comedian's business," he said. MYou have to know which Chimney Rock Gets Elevator By E. Carl Sink CHIMNEY ROCK, N. C. All the Santa Clauses in the world can practice their Christmas chimney maneuvers this year in the biggest chimney in America and do it easily, with the aid of a spank new, easy-gliding elevator. A substantial number of the be nevolent gentlemen will do their chimney scaling practising this spring and summer in various dir guises as fathers, husbands, uncles, grandads, who with their kin, will be just plain tourists and sight seers visiting this unusual granite monolith which rises abruptly from the shores of Lake Lure. Heretofore, they have had to make the ascent the hard way up some 800 steps, a job so laborious that the Chimney Rock owners decided it would be good business as well as merciful to put in the elevator. 200 Foot Shaft Cut The formiable job of cutting an elevator shaft 200 feet through so lid rock has been completed, and the vehicle itself will be installed rr WS INUM0 A6AUKT WT IE MAD NOT INCU)0tDiriNDD COTIWM riWuM.WHICl T.WtD HAVE GIVEN HIM PMTtCTlON AOAINSTAM HfftOSTOtyt, tXfiLOSKHI.SMOXt, CHECK MX WUCIES P0H COMPLETE MOTCCTION Dial H-3S2-1 John L.

First the contractors drill ed a three-inch hole, down which was dropped blasting powder for explosion at successive levels. Old Rumbling Bald across the road, which has on occasions yielded up some mysterious noises, stopped rumbling in green envy at the man-made belchings, which, after a menth, widened the aperture to a 4-foot "pilot" shaft. Workmen, operating from a buc ket let down from the top, bored and blasted another month until the hole v,as big enough foi the elevator. This perpendicular shaft is reached at its base by a 196 foot horizontal shaft also cut through the native rock. And rock it was; the contractor said the job didn't yield so much as a spoonful of dirt. Tha new contraction will in no way mar the rugged beauty of the mountain. The shaft has an incon slcuous entrance, then rises 200 feet to a spot about 200 feet from the famous chimney itself. From here, there is only one relatively short staircase to climb to the sum mit. No Gold Struck While the work was going on. there was, some speculation that the excavators would find some valuable mineral, maybe gold.
