United Press International Full was wire MASON CITY IOWA SATURDAY OCTOBER 20 1962 HOME EDITION neighbors 10b of Two SectionsSection No 217 ountain war by IndiaChina Airlines react to criticism Quips bring changes By ROBERT J SERLING WASHINGTON Three years ago a thenobscure come dian named Shelley Herman de clared friendly war on the air lines He waged his battle with a 10minute monologue known as the airline bit He recorded the skit as part of an album hoping it would sell a few thous and copies It sold more than a million Just to refresh your memory its the one where Berman re f erred to an airline captain as that handsome man crookec smile but straight teeth And where Berman frantically try ing to tell a stewardess the wing is on fire gets the classic nasa answer Coffee tea or milk We havent time for coffee tea or milk Berman shouts We are doomed Well then replies the stew ardess how about a martini That one monologue has hac as much effect on the nations airlines as a deskful of com bined orders from Aeronautics Boardand Aviation Agency Since Berman first recorded it following events have transpired Some airlines have taught their stewardesses NOT to say tea or milk for the simple that passengers laughing every time the phrase was uttered Many pilots have made open efforts to improve cabin PA an nouncements after Bermans spoofing of their clipped metal lic voices1 Sample Well be cruising at an altitude of of oh I dunno about 18000 At least one airline put the burp cups or airsickness bags out of sight in the seat pockets because Berman re marked it was the first thing he saw when he took his seat Bermans monologue was out right satire and even verbal caricature but it contained enough truth to make the air lines take notice Just like that adage Many a truth is spoken in jest Ber man chuckles If I hadnt touched on some problems that are very real to an airline pas senger people wouldnt have been laughing so hard Berman admits the bit won him immediate friends in the airline industry Sometimes Stewardesses ask him to make the cabin PA announcements This is a mistake Berman in variably intones the wrong air port and the wrong airline We have just landed in Cin cinnati he will proclaim to startled passengers on an Amer ican Airlines plane that has just landed in Los Angeles and we want to thank you for flying TWA Despite the hatchet job he did on pilots and stewardesses or stewards a Bermanese ex pression that has been adopted by some airlines as official lan guage he has received many letters from crew members thanking him for the ribbing Once I got a letter from an airline pilot complaining I had insulted the dignity of his pro fession Shelley says but so help me that was the only gripe Even airline executives liked the skit Eastern asked me to do it at Capt Eddie Rickenbackers farewell party when he retired as Easterns president Berman got a plaque from the National Aviation Club in Wash to the man who has done the least for com
