Mr. CravWi has been with Tusca

tex ritter ideal for
' Capitol Records' decision to ask
Wfestern star Tex Ritter to record
Pfc. John J. McCormick's touching
letter to his wife and children was
based on the fact that Tex has been
closely associated wlth;n "Ameri
canlsm" campaign in the past year.
The' soft-spoken cowboy, who is
loved throughout the 'nation, has
been honored by numerous organi
zations In the' country for his out-
Standing contributions to the wel
fare of America, And Capitol Rec
ords has featured him on recorded
versions of "Pledge of Allegiance"
and "Gettysburg - Address," which
have established him "as a truly
great name in the music Industry.
Capitol thus decided that Ritter
would be , the ' most -.appropriate
talent' to! recite - the McCormlok

pathetically and with dignity - - a
fitting tribute to an American sol
dier who gave his life for his coun
