Trouper Costello Gives Broadcast Despite Tragedy By FKKDKKICK OTHMAN United Press Stuff Correspondent HOLLYWOOD, Nov. 5 Costello's party for his son's first birthday, to signalize the roly-poly comic's emergence from a slough of hard luck, turned today into a funeral service. The infant. Lou Costello, Jr., drowned in the family swimming pool three hours before his father brushed the tears from his eyes and lauched, as loud as lie could, on a coast-to-coast radio broad- cast. The program, replete with jokes which took on a macabre tinge for those few listeners who knew of the tragedy at the pool, fea- tured Costcllo and his long-time partner. Bud Abbott. It was their first since Hard Luck Lou became critically ill with pheumatic fever last March. The broadcast last night at NBC studios was to have been a gala event. Then Costello's doctor, Vic- tor Kovcner. phoned him ahout the baby's breaking out of its crib, crawling to the edge of the pooi and falling in; about the firemen diving for the child and working in vain for an hour and a half to revive him. Lou slumped in his chair. His cigar went out. Rivnl comedians, including Bob Hope. Red Skclton, Jimmy Dnrnntc and Mickey Roo- ney. heard the news. All offered to go on in Lou's place. By now, Dr. Kovener, who once despaired of Costello's life, hud reached the studio. He and Abbott decided it would be best for Coslcllp to his nppoarnucc.

Hallinan parried quickly, ask- ng: "How did you get the title of Count' "I have never called myself, 'Count.' the defendant replied calmly. "But 1 inherited the title from botli sides of my family. My former wife (liuth Fahnestock de Marigny) called hcrscl 'Countess de Marigny.' When I arrived in Nassau T asked the newspapers not to use it ever in Nassau or any place else." "Fauquereaux is a botirgeoise Hallinan saici. Is Undisturbed DC Marigny was undisturbed this attack on the authenticity of his title. He said it was the name of a titled family of the British island of Mauritius where he was born. "The title is a fake." Hallinan commented. Warner Testifies He Feared Bioff And His Gang NEW YORK, Nov. 5 bert Warner, vice-president and treasurer of Warner Brothers Pic- tures. Inc.. testified today that while he feared violence from Wil lie Bioff, convicted extortionist, he decided against informing police authorities because he believed others in Bioff's gang would re- taliate. Testifying at the trial of eight men accused of extorting more than from the picture industry, Warner said that the industry was "so fragile" in when George E. Browne and Bioff were operating their union racket that a Vstrike of even a few days would have ruined us." Asked by James D. C. Murray of defense counsel why he had not gone to the FBI or other law en- forcement agencies, Warner said that he believed that even if Bioff were removed, the "others would carry on." He paid Bioff, he said, install- ments of each over a period of two years, for a total of Warner said the arrangement was "so obnoxious" to him that he never paid Bioff directly, but left the cash with his secretary for Bioff to pick up.

Driving forward seven miles on the western end of the front from Isernia to the sea, the troops reached the south bank of the Gar- igiiano to strike the forward bar- rier to the new Nazi defenses in high ground to the north. Yanks Cross Volturno' In the center. American forces crossed the upper Volturno and fought their way into the outskirtfe of Venafro, last enemy bastion on the old line, and cut off the escape of the German garrison there by seizing Vallecupa on the road to Cassino. British Eighth army troops, blasting back German tank forces, won San Salvo, beyond the Trighp river on the Adriatic with aid of a naval bombardment. Nazis Digging in Official reports said the Ger- mans, who flooded the Gangliaho plains trying vainly to impede the Fifth's surge, were digging into the southern slopes of the Aurun- ci mountains across the river for a stand that may rival that on the Volturno above Naples. It was indicated that the new line may force the Allies to resort again to hard but small punches seeking out holes before beginning a new general attack. More than a score of towns and villages were reached or passed in the general advance; including Carpinone, Acquevive, Pettoranel- lo.

Tom Harmon Again Reported Missing in Action FRENCH GROUP WANTS VOICE IN ALLIED PARLEYS ALGIERS, Nov. 5 French National Committee of Liberation announced today that France will not consider herself bound by any Anglo-American- Russian decisions affecting Ger- many unless her representatives are allowed a voice in deciding those issues. In a blunt bid for an equal place with the three major allies on the newly-created Europeon commission the French commit- tee implied that any armistice ar- ranged by their allies with Ger- many might not be regarded as binding on French armies.

EDITOR'S NOTE: United Press War Correspondent Frank Hewlitt has arrived in Burma to cover Al- lied operations in that theater. A veteran of the Philippine cam- paign, who. with the aid of his wife, Virginia, scored a notable beat with his story of the Japanese aerial attack on the open city of Manila, he was the only newsman to witness the fall of Hainan. He escaped to Corregidor, was re- moved to Australia by an Amer- ican bomber during a surprise at- tack on Japanese positions in the Philippines, and covered the Amer- ican and Australian jungle cam- paign in New Guinea and the Solo- mons. His coverage from Bataau won him a National Headlincr's club award for outstanding journ- alistic achievement in 19-12. His wife was interned by the Japanese. On his way to Burma he stopped at Portuguese India, where the recent exchange of Jap- anese and American internees took place, in the hope tiiat his wife was among them.
