NEW YORK (AP) It's com- ing to an long, long time whc-n Arthur Godfrey dom- inated the airwaves, made headlines with every move, and probably earned more money for CBS than any other per- former. Godfrey is quitting CES radio next April 30, on the 27th anni- v-rsary of Arthur Godfrey Time. He has been a performer more than 50 years. He will devote his energies now to four television spncials a j year, his farm in Vir- ginia and to urging ecological reforms. "I've been thinking about quitting for a year or said Godfrey, who at 68 still has a full head of red hair and the booming foghorn voice that pleased his listeners and terror- ized network vice-presidents. Godfrey, who thrived long after the collapse of network radio as an entertainment force, finally fell victim to changes in radio formats. He said: "In the last year or COME FLY!

My show is for the late morning or early afternoon, but some stations were putting it on at five in the morning or six at night. ''They claimed that when they have a rock format, a program like mine loses their audiences. So I figure what the hell is the use of all this work." In the 1950s Godfrey was vir- tually a one-man network. For six years, until 1959, his show was broadcast daily for Hi hours over both CBS television and radio. In addition, two other television shows were on once a Godfrey and His Friends and Talent Scouts. It was estimated that he earned million a year for CBS and kept 10 per cent of it. He had great influence over his audience. One oldtimer mused: "So Ar- thur Godfrey's leaving. That means fear will no longer stalk th? halls at CBS. He's still a big power and a big moneymaker. At one time they had a vice- president who did nothing but after Godfrey." It was an era marked by his abrupt dismissal of some of his most popular LaRosa the singer, was fired right on the air in his buzzing of the control tower at the Teterboro, N.J., airport, a hip operation and a triumph over lung cancer. Was he a wilful, unpredictable tyrant who turned on the charm only before the camera and mi- crophone? Or a warm, gener- ous, misunderstood perfection- ist? It depends on whom you ask, and the debate continues to j this day. Godfrey stayed at the top for years. He was the first to mock the product when he did a com- mercial. Advertising men grew pale, but sales soared. He was, and is, keenly inter- ested in aviation, and qualified j this summer to fly the Boeing j 747 an" DC-10 jumbo jets. But in 1S54 he was grounded for six months by the Civil Aer- charges that he buzzed the Tet- erboro tower. He said he didn't do it deliberately, although he wa> displeased with his takeoff instructions. He recently made a record i about it that sold a million cop- 1 ies. 'Prattaxi' perfected now T'EW YORK (AP) Pratt Pratt started building the T'EW YORK (AP) Pratt Institute's full-scale model of the urban taxicab looks to be a painted-over armored car from the First World War but the city's taxi commissioner says "it's exactly the type of people-package vehicle we're looking for." The "Prattaxi" model un- veiled Thursday is two inches longer than the Volkswagen Beetle but has more head and leg room than a Cadillac lim- ousine. It's five-foot-high door makes it easy to step into and it carries four passengers. A platform beside the driver holds luggage. Taxi Commissioner Michael J. Lazar's staff is looking into several alternatives to the standard Detroit sedans now used as taxis here. Lazar wants a more com- fortable cab that takes up less road space, is easier to ma- noeuvre and more economical to operate.
