' JL- The Message -- for Catholics of Southwestern Indiana Entertainment November 20, 1987 On the Record By CHARLIE MARTIN NC News Service Columnist SOng suggests what we lack can only be f,c00und in others Something Real (Inside Me-Inside You) Everyone's looking for something real/Everyone's taking all they can steal/Brother to sister, look at each other face to face/There's something missing here in this human race. REFRAIN: Inside of me (All we want is something real) Is a part of you (We can make this last forever) And I know inside of you {Make a world where we can feel) Is a part of me (We will always be together) Person to persn, place to place/We run from each other, lost in the race/Brother to sister, hold on to each other with all we got/Our time is com- ing, ff we're ready or not, ready or not. REPEAT REFRAIN Recorded by Mr. Mister Written by Page, Lang, Fan'is Copyright Ic} 1085 by Warner-Tamedane Publishing Corp..Entente Music II I Have you ever felt that something is missing from your life -- even, perhaps, within you? Mr. Mister's latest hit, "Something Real," holds that something is missing for everyone, but what we lack can only be found in others. In the song's words, we face a choice: We can either "run from each other" or "hold on to each other with all we got." The refrain suggests that, somehow, there is a part of others that is alive within us. We can in- crease the caring in our world if we start sharing more of that "something real" living in each of us. Often the meaning we experience in life depends on how freely we are willing to give what God first has shared with us. Think about this dur- ing the Thanksgiving season. For example, how freely have you shared your dreams with others? Each person needs inspiration and inner vision. However, life at times bogs us down with problems and difficulties. That is when we need another to lift us up with the power of his or her dreams. How freely have you given of your courage? All of us get frightened at times. We wonder if we I I I III can meet the challenges that life has given to us. We need to see the example of others' courage. We also need others to show us how to live by convictions and beliefs. When you take a stand for what you believe, your courage is a model for the rest of us. How freely have you given of your joy? We need each others' sense of fun and enjoyment. Sometimes this joy comes through just by sharing together the wonders that God has put in our world', the magic of a sunrise, the cool, crisp Thanksgiving morning air or the reassurance found in each others' smiles when we let our joy spill out in laughter or when, together, we help make our world into a better place to live. This Thanksgiving take time to say "thanks" to God for the gifts of the year. And think of one new way you can share that "something real" part of yourself, thus bringing more hope, courage and joy to others. Your comments are welcome always.

'Remembering Bing" is nostalgic celebration By HENRY HERX USCC Dept. of Communication NEW YORK (NC) -- Bing Crosby is not unknown to young people today because his movies still show up on televi- sion, especially "Holiday Inn" at Christmas time for the simple reason that it contains his ren- dition of Irving Berlin's "White Christmas." What young people can't know is what Crosby meant to an older generation in which he represented a congenial, happy-go-lucky crooner who helped people forget their troubles in the Depression and through World War II. Bridging the generation gap is "Remembering Bing," an unabashedly nostalgic celebra- tion of the man and his era, air- ing Saturday, Nov. 28 at 8:10 p.m. on PBS WNIN-Channal 9). Hosting the show is Dorothy Lamour, the sometimes sarong- clad siren who supplied the love interest to the ever-popular Bing Crosby-Bob Hope "road" movies. It was an appropriate choice, not only because she does it so gracefully, but also because she was one of his many friends. What the program sets out to do, and does quite well, is to explain what made this par- ticular performer so popular for half a century. It is not at all in- terested in his private life and problems that gossip-seekers have alluded to. The picture presented here is that of the public persona of an icon of popular culture. Remembering Bing are a host of his friends and colleagues -- Bob Hope, Patti Andrews, Mary Martin, Rhonda Fleming, Donald O'Connor and llel. Torme among them. All have telling stories to relate about. their work with Crosby, save for Anthony Quinn, who seems to have been interviewed solely because he was available. The real value of the pro- gram, however, is the wealth of Crosby performances presented in the form of records, radio shows and motion pictures. Though he made his first ap- pearance in films as a singer in Paul Whiteman's band for the 1930 "The King of Jazz," it was his CBS radio show that made him and his records an over- night sensation during the Depression. The research required for gleaning a sampling of excerpts representative of such a long and successful career as Crosby's is formidable. The choices made by James Arntz and Katherin MacMillin, who wrote and produced the show, are right on the mark. Papal writings Book contains writings on theater BERKELEY, Calif.
