Ulmer embraced Miss Merman, while the remainder, including one and one reporter, contented themselves with shaking hands. No autograph seekers were shoved away by the I police. The welcoming crowd included the luminaries of StageWest, Sam Goldstein, founder of the company; Hays, musical director; and Wilma Barrows, promotional! director.

He Ethel Merman, the famed belter of Broadway ballads and most famous of the "red-hot mamas" arrives in Springfield via the New Haven.

Miss Merman came to the city to see the opening production of "The Fantasticks at Stage West. The coat is a hybrid train since I don't know when. I thoroughly enjoyed myself. And I'm going back to New York on the train." The singing star, who has! popularized songs by Ger-lis mink. shwin, Cole Porter and Irving Berlin, in reality came to Springfield "just to see a play." Although "The Fantasticks" now in its 10th year off Traffic Board Seeks Meter Maid Meeting Springfield does not yet have its meter maids, but there is plenty of interest in them.

The Traffic Friday called for a meeting with the Police Commission, Mayor Freedman and Police Chief John F. Lyons to discuss whose jurisdiction the meter maids should come under. A request is pending by the Police Department 12 "parking meter maids, meter supervisors." or city's parking laws and perform other department duties. They would be part of the Police Department, according to the proposal. However, Traffic Commissioner Richard R.

I thought it was time to see the show, since I know the music so well." Just as Union Station and the railway service from New York has changed, so has the theater at least in the eyes of Ethel Merman. Critical of Show She described some of the plays now in production notably "Oh, Calcutta," as "obscene." "I have no feeling for what's going on now. It's not theater." What she does have feeling for are musicals and revivals. "Annie Get Your Gun" was brought out of mothballs and presented at Lincoln Center three years ago again with Miss Merman as the star. "Gypsy," the last Broadway play she starred in, will revive in Miami early next year with, of course, Miss Merman in the role of Mama.

And "Call Me Madam" may also come in for resurrection. She's somewhat concerned that Lindsay a and Crouse, the authors, aren't around to update the lyrics as they did a few years ago but is optimistic. For the uninitiated. "Madam" about Pearl Mesta, Washington's "hostess with the mostest." Miss Merman, on Jan. 9, will COhostess a party with Miss Mesta.

Ulmer met Miss Merman about eight years ago when her son, Robert, was an apprentice at the LaJolla, Playhouse. She was then looking for a dramatic college, (so Ulmer suggested his alma mater, Carnegie Tech, for Robert. He entered, graduated, and is now looking for work on the West Coast. 1 "It's a lovely gesture from a grand lady," Ulmer said. "Because of her we're that much more determined to make a success of our first musical.

"What's more, the difference: between a $3 ticket here and a $15 ticket on Broadway is, not $12 worth of acting. We, pay the actors rates com-. petitive with Broadway. It's, the production stagecraft costs unions and high. make the.

difference." "From what I know of in John's talent, I couldn't agree more," said Miss Merman in a soft and sweet voice. City Councilor Armando G. Dimauro also concurred, pointing out that there has a lack of communication between the traffic and police commissions. He said he feels a meeting should take place. The Police Department request is currently before the Personnel Policy Board, which must approve it.
