So Vincent played gaily into a dead mike and pulled his "Lopez speaking" without a syllable of it getting beyond the studio's four walls. Odds and KNDS: Microphone No. 13 at the CBS New York headquarters has never failed. It has been used by Alfred Smith, Charles Lindbergh and John W. Davis . . . Irvin Cobb is probably the only radio artist who is a Chevalier of France's Legion of Honor . . . the Boswell Sisters have followed Morton Downey to London for vaudeville dates . . . and Duke Ellington's band is knocking them on their ears in England. Johnny MARVIN has a problem. He wants to take out a passport for visiting Europe and the govern- ment demands that he give his birthplace. Which is just what Johnny cannot do.
