Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 25, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta TnurMuy, April 29, LETHBHIDQE Virtuoso harmonica player having revival in Canada OTTAWA (CP) Larry Ad- ler, the expatriate American virtuoso harmonica player, is having a revival in Canada even though his career virtually ended in the U.S. almost 30 years ago because of a brush with the congressional un-American activities committee. He still is such an audience drawing card that he has played orchestral benefit per- formances in Halifax and Win- nipeg, now is on a one-man show tour, will film an hour- long special for CBC-TV, and is booked a full year ahead in Hamilton Place, the new arts centre in the Ontario steel city. It was in 1947 that Mr. Adler and about 200 other ANGLO sells STEREO HEADPHONES t prices 5th Street South performers, writers and artists formed the Committee for the First Amendment in Hollywood and New York to protest against the U.S. House of Representatives un- American activities committee demanding that artists testify whether they held membership in the Musician ill HYANNIS, Mass. (AP) Noted jazz trumpet player Bobby Hackett is in critical condition in hospital here suf- fering from a diabetic coma, officials said today Hackett, 62, was taken to hospital Saturday night A spokesman at the hospital said the musician has shown some signs of improvement but has not come out of the coma.

Members and Invited Guests Only Communist party. This was even earlier than the McCarthy years in Washington, but the label stuck to those Mr. would not recant their protest. Mr. Adler says he never was a Communist, but stood on the principle that he need not be forced by a congressional committee to testify to it. He moved to England in 1947, and still makes his home there. He said in an interview while here for a one-night stand that he still finds it difficult to get engagements in the U S. He finds himself still blacklisted by commercial shows on the U.S television networks The late Sol Hurok tried to put a tour together for him in 1962 and found he could only get seven engagements over three it entirely impractical. Mr. Adler said Mr. Hurok told him theatre managers were still too influenced by "Republican ladies with long memories." Mr Adler is a virtuoso musician who has had concertos written by such composers as Darius Milhaud of France, Malcolm Arnold of the U S and Ralph Vaughan Williams of Britain, but until some years ago he played entirely by ear He still can read music only by puzzling it out slowly.

Lou Costello died in 1959, two years after the team split up Abbott died at his home in Woodland Hills. He had been in poor health from several strokes and died of cancer, his agent said. Abbott was the straight man in the comedy team, playing a somewhat stuffy man who was always correcting the impulsive, fumbling Costeilo Abbott teamed up with Costello in 1925 and they played in vaudeville and burlesque until about 1938 when they became "top bananas" on the circuit They moved into New York, appeared on the Kate Smith radio show and soon were in Streets of Paris on the Broadway stage. Their first movie was One Night in The Tropics. The tall, thin Abott and the short, fat Costello were the comedy kings of the 1940s and '50s, making dozens of films, appearing weekly on radio and going into television in the late 1950s. Their most famous routine was "Who's on which they performed five times for the late president Franklin D. Roosevelt Abbott was born Oct. 2, 1895, in Atlantic City, N.J. His father was a circus advance man and his mother was a bareback rider. His childhood was spent in the Coney Island section of Brooklyn. After the team split up, Abbott filed suit against Costello for money he claimed from their TV series. The suit was still in litigation when Costello died Abbott is survived by his wife, Betty, and a son and daughter.
