By AL COLLETTl CiMdiaik Press Staff Writer Hie Old Honcho swliut laii-ly In his hammock, Inniitg over slightly to stir a pitcher of frozen orange juice. Over and over, million» of television viewers each day watch Bing Crosby make his family pitch for Minute Maid orange juice, for which he has a five-state distributorship. In the TV commercials, the sun Is bright, the countryside beautiful and the young Crosby family growing up on their ranch. Fresh eus are plucked for breakfast fr«n a straw-filled bin. Chores are quickly done while Bing “prepares” the Minute Maid, his solitary task as major domo of the household. In the commercials at least, Crosby is the senior citizen who grows old gracefully. But in real life, the lines grow de^r and the skin tighter in the face that was still boyish when Bing was in his 50s, Now 69, Crosby is in a California hospital with a lung disease, diagnosed as non-cancerous. doctors say. They found a lesion in bis left lung that might be the result of pneumcHiia. Crosby was both father and mother tv his four sons, whom he helped raise after hts first wife. Dixie Lee, died of cancer in 1952. Bing remarried in 1957 and started raising a second family. He wed actress Kathy Grant, a brown-eyed Texan. He was 53, she 23—five months younger than his oldest son Ga^. Kathy and Bing now have two teen-age sons and a daughter. They all appear in the TV commercials. During his long movie career, Crosby appeared in more than 50 films. He was the No. 1 draw at the boxoffice in Id44-4S. and one of the 10 top money-making stars in 1934, 1937, 1940, 1943 and 1953. A Gallup poll showed he ranked as the country's favorite singer as late as 1950. Old golfing buddies, Crosby and Hope teamed with Dorothy Lamour in the “Road” series, now classics among TV reruns Crosby’s ad-lib movie dia- logue with Hope became mous.

S. m>eiii fa-breezy manner and needlina friendship with Hope fitted the comedy scripts perfectly. But Bing also established himself as a serious actor. A Roman Catholic, he played the part of a Catholic priest in Going My Way, (me of his most successful movies. His performance won him an Academy Award as best actor in 1S44. The following year he was a Tiest in the Bells of St. ary’s, co-starring Ingrid Bergman. After a quarter-century of movie-making, Crosby said: I’ll takethe serious stuff any day. It’s a breeze compared with making musicals." Harry Lillis Crosby ducked out of college and a possible law career to become a popular crooner during the Great Depression of the 1930s. His old-tune fans still can feel a ripiAe when they hear his throbbing recording of 1 Surrender Dear, the hit song that catapulted him into bigtime radio in 1932. Crosby’s career has been one of the most successful in entertainment history. It has often been said that his rich, mellow baritone could be heard at any time someplace in the world- on radio, phonograph or Jukebox. He made so much money that he needed a corporation to handle his affairs. Twenty years ago, Bing was earning $1 million a year and his net worth was placed at million. It is many times that amount now. His investments include oil wells and gold and uranium interests. 'nie far-flung Bing Crosby Enterprises markets everything from TV films to toys. Crosby owned a 25,000-acre cattle ranch near Elko, Nev., and sold off 19,000 acres for |1 mllUon in 1958. He also owns a luxurious trailer village near Palm Springs, Calif. Bing’s royalties from his records have brought him millions of dollars. Re recorded 20 million-plus discs. His No. 1 record in sales remains Silent Night with White Christmas second. In his autobiography. Call Me Lucky, published in 1953, he modestly attributed his sinnng popularity to the ease witti which his fans could iden- tiiy their singing abibty witb his. “I think that every man ... who hears me ,.. believes firmly that he sings as well as I do, especially when he is in the bathroom shower.” As an avid sportsman, he owned half a race track and stable, and still has a piece of the Pittsburgh Pirates’ baseball franchise. Until bursitis slowed him down, he was an expert golfer. Crosby hunts and fishes all over the world. He loves to go to Canada.

Wl «T-724< LlhbfldQ» GERMAN CANADIAN CLUB REGULAR DANCE Sat., Jan. 12,8:30 p.m. Music by ‘FIORINO* Members and Invited Quests Only Turntable topics Big band still tops By DON PILLING Max Greger — Big Band Happening. The fact that most of today’s sounds stem from beat groups and singers makes it easy, for some, to forget the rich, varied and stimulating sound of a first-class big band. That is not to say anything against electric guitars and power-loaded amplifiers; some artists cannot produce one tone without their assistance. But a big band lives in itself — the way it lives, breathes, swings and vibrates. It is a total sound. One of the most talented bands on the International scene is the German unit headed by Max Greger, and this outing on the Polydor label is an album that has im* pressed this writer more than anything I’ve.heard i)n recent months. ‘Greger has Iwrrow^ some of the swing evergreehs from the big band era of the 1930’s and '40’s and given them a new lease on life. Included are such items as Glenn Miller’s Moonlight Serenade, Duke Ellingston’s Take the A Train and Mood Indigo, Count Basie’s April in Paris, Benny Goodman's Let’s Dance, Stan Kenton’s Eager Beaver, Harry James’ Trumpet Blues, Les Brown’s Sentimental Journey and Woody Herman’s Woodchoppers’ Ball, to name d few It’s a fine album. Give it a listen and you’ll agree. (Polydor 2371 130). • * • Tony Bennett — Listen Easy. Frank Sinatra calls Tony Bennett the best pop singer in the business today, and I wouldn't argue the point. To say Tony is in better voice than ever is like saying Melina Mercouri is more Greek than ever these days. In this album he breathes new life into his work with a batch of quality songs. Particularly outstanding are Cole Porter’s I Concentrate on You, On the Sunny Side of the Street and the haunting The Hands of Time, the theme of the widely-acclaimed television movie, Brian’s Song. Recommended? Take Mr. Sinatra's word for it. (MGM-Verve 5094). Ramsey Lewis — The Groover. Discuss jazz these days, and the narne of Ramsey LÂwis is bound to pop up. He and his trio have developed a unique, swinging sound that creates a great deal of happy music. Recorded live at The Lighthouse in Hermosa Beach, California, this is one of the group’s better efforts that includes a great arrangement of Summertime and a beautiful version of Imagination. (Cadet 903550020). Cadet records have also issued a collection of some of the top hits of the Lewis threesome, one track or two [rom eight different albums. Featured are The In Crowd and Hang on Sloopy. The Best of Ramsey Lewis. (Cadet 9035-839). * • * Ja» Spectrum—Vol. S. If the big bands are your bag, this volume by Verve rwords is one you should have in your library. Such names as Woody Herman, Charlie Barnet, Duke Ellington, Gene Krupa. Lionel Hampton, Buddy Rich and Count Basie are showcased in 12 jazz classics that ar« bound to ring a memory bell. It's worth the price of the album to enjoy, again, Gene joy, aga Krupa’s Opus No. 1 with the incomparable still one of Anita O’Day, the finest jazz singers in the land, handling the vocal chores. (Verve 3508). * Woody Herman — Heavy Exposure. This is a real rockin’, let-it-np session with Woody and his Herd. There are are a number of contemporary tunes included In the set with the spotlight on Aquarius. Lancaster Gate and My Cherie Amour. Woody, who seems to change personnel about every two yrars or so, blows up a storm in this one and, on some of the tracks, unfortunately gets lost in it. A return to his-' sound of the 1950’s and ’flO’s would be most welcome.
