COMIC BEN BLUE'S biggest
regret is that Damon Runyon
never met "Turk" Prujan . . .
The living legend, as Ben refers
to him, is former Detroiter Her-
man "Turk" Prujansky with whom
we visited while recently in Cali-
fornia . . He's "Mr. Personality"
all over the country and like a
pied piper of show business, he
has followers everywhere by the
untold droves . . . At one time,
"Mr. L.A.", Los Angeles Examiner
columnist Bill Kennedy remarked,
"Turk Prujan is opening up
another nitery and it better be
bigger than the colloseum to seat
all his friends!" . . Whenever
he comes back to the hometown,
"Turk," whose first cousins were
the late Abe and Ann Srere, has
such a following that his taking
over a nitery here has alwayS been
a big thing for folks ... But Turk's
talents go far beyond running

niteries . . . He's a talent pro-
moter, recognized and respected
music composer and director and
friend to the world of show busi-
ness . . . Turk has written some
very fine music . . . and when
George Jessel goes to Israel to
dedicate the Eddie Cantor Foun-
dation in Tel Aviv. he'll place in
the cornerstone a recording writ-
ten by Turk (lyrics and music)
. It's "My Bar Mitzvah" which
was finished on Israel's 13th Anni-
versary and played by a 200 piece
orchestra as the then prime min-
ister David Ben Gurion's tribute
to Israel . . "My Bar Mitzvah"
has sold over 4 ,4 2 million records.
. . He is now writing a song in
dedication to Abe and Ann Srere
because of the great philanthropic
feeling they had for Israel . . .
Turk has directed albums narrated
by George Jessel. "The Legend
of Eddie Cantor" and "This Is
My Show Business." . . . He now
has the life story rights to Jack
Benny, Milton Berle. Amos and
Andy and Mario Lanza . . . Both
CBS and NBC have given Turk
carte blanche to use any stored
• material he needs . . . With all
going on around him. Herman
"Turk" Prujansky has the heart
of a giant . . . Every day he visits
his wife, who for almost a year
has been in a coma in a California
hospital . . . This alone would
take a lot out of the average man,
but Turk isn't just average .
smiles every day and never lets
a day go by with
one in one way or another .
This fantastic attribute which few
people know about has made him
one of the most graciously accept-
ed persons in show business
When Turk had the Club Troca-
dero on Fenkell back in 1941, he
gave Harvey Stone (Lichtenstein)

by some folks, there is no charge
for second cups of coffee during
breakfast, lunch or dinner.
