with MARY STEIN

To anyone who, like us, has
worn out a record of "The Anni-
versary Song" or has seen "The
Jolson Story" two or three times,
listening to Al Jolson's radio show
is disillusionment.
In fact we don't advise tuning
in on the Thursday night show un-
less you can arrange it so you only
hear Jolson's singing.
The rest of the show is not only
unentertaining-laughs few and
far between-but Jolson's charac-
ter is sadly maligned.
Al seems to have fallen into the
hands of a puckish script writers
who has remolded the personality
of the veteran showman to fit his
own potter's wheel. The product
is sadly unlike the Jolson that
we've always thought of. He's now
become (1) rich-and maybe a
little bit tight-a la Jack Benny
(2) ancient-a sort of Methuselah
of show business (3) something of
an old ignoramus.
At least those were the salient
points in Al's personality accord-
ing to Thursday night's script. Oh
yes-it was also mentioned that
he was sort of a weakling (like
Frank Sinatra, no doubt!)
Why Jolson is standing for this
defamation is not clear. It certain-
ly is clear, however, that this is

Local'Heifers
For Europe'
Drive to Open
Letters announcing the opening
of the "Heifers for Europe" drive
will arrive at campus organiza-
tions this week, according to Sey-
mour Goldstein, chairman of the
University Famine Committee.
With pleasant memories of last
year's local campaign which- net-
ted 11 heifers for milk-starved
European children, the Famine
Committee has dispatched pledge
cards to all student groups in an
effort to match or surpass last
year's mark.
Originator of the heifer plan is
the Brethren service Committee,
which has encouraged the project
throughout the country. After
sufficient funds are received, this
ccmmittee purchases the heifers
and sees them to their destination.
Campus groups will be asked to
pledge any amount possible and
return the pledge cards to the
Famine Committee at Lane Hall.
Goldstein explained this informa-
tion is important to the progress
of the drive.
This year heifers will cost ap-
proximately $175..Any group rais-
ing this sum will be permitted to
designate the recipient, Goldstein
said, adding that one heifer would
feed 10 children.
