omore, sang "All of Me" on na-
tional radio hook-ups Sunday
night, climaxing a series of audi-

any vocalist.
Singing on the Horace Heidt

as one of four finalists for the
broadcast from the Broadway-
Capitol Theatre in Detroit. Semi-
professionals from this area were
auditioned to participate in the
program by representatives of
Philip Morris, sponsors of the
The prize, awarded one of
the four contestants in compe
tition with the previous week's
winner, went again to Stanley
Morris, 16 years old, of Cleve-
land. His playing of "Sabre

him the $250 prize last week in
Cleveland after the amount of
applause was recorded.
Dick Contino, winner for sev-

phenomenal accordion playing.
Jackie, who spends her week-

was known here for his piano
playing back in the 20's. Next year
she will be in charge of the floor-
shows at the Campus Casbah.
