Although the show has been on
the air for three weeks, we didn't
get around to viewing CBS's high-
ly-touted "Amos 'N' Andy" until
last Thursday night.
A huge press release extolling
the program showed TV column-
ists across the nation united in
their praise, and Thursday night
we became a member of the clan.

NBC has come out with two new

to us that there are already too
many of this type being produced.

CBS seems determined to
flood the TV and radio scenes
with the tear-jerking quiz show,
"Strike It Rich." They now
have the show scheduled for a
half-hour each Wednesday night
and a half-hour each week-day
morning on TV, with another
half-hour every day on radio.
The show has people with sad
problems as contestants. Forin-
stance, on one show last week
there appeared a little girl who
had lost her dog, a young man
who needed an operation, and a
mother who wanted to erect a
memorial to her son who was
killed in Korea. It's too much to
sit through much of this and have
a happy day.

IFS, ANDS, BUTS:
Experts Say UMTBil
Loaded with Difficulties
By The world Staff of The Associated Press
WASHINGTON-The President's five-man Universal Military
Trainng Commission says it probably will send Congress its plan for
a national security training corps in September.
When UMT finally will go into effect no one knows.
First, Congress must okay it-and UMT will be dynamite with an
election year coming up.
But that may be nothing compared to the merry-go-round of ifs,
ands and buts that UMT must ride after that.
UNDER THE Universal Military Training and Service Law, Con-
gress or the President must reduce the terms of service for draftees
under 19 to six months.
Yet this will be impossible if the armed forces are to be kept at
Defense officials have said armed strength could be reduced-
if a well organized and well trained reserve could be called up
at short notice.
But there can't be any such beefed-up reserve until UMT goes in-
to effect and starts shunting train-
ed men into reserve units. c, :::::><:: ;;<;:<::
And UMT can't go into effect

Translated by Maurice Valency,
"The Enchanted" is a witty, hu-
morous fantasy about a young

the ghost, played by Ted Heusel,
Grad., she may be able to rid the
community of many of its evils.
The story develops in a fas-

Dean Taggart, a noted authority
on cost accounting, has been call-
ed to give his opinion on a pro-
posed bill dealing with Air Mail
rates. The bill would make it ne-
cessary to determine the exact
cost of air mail service.
"Such a thing just couldn't be
done," Dean Taggart asserted.
"Planes carry other freight and
passengers as well as mail, and
you can't determine the exact cost
of any one of these items. It's a
