Description: 1 page on "International News Service" letterhead, 11 x 8.5 inches, Beverly Hills, California, April 14, 1958. Written by the influential Hollywood gossip columnist, responding passionately to Mayes's query regarding replacing the national anthem, in part: "...There have been many complaints that our national anthem is difficult to sing and is only for people with fine singing voices. Yes, it is difficult but it really doesn't matter if the anthem isn't sung well, just so we know it, and even if the lyrics are only spoken, let's hear them. Writers such as Francis Scott Key are not born every day...This great song has strength and power and has been the theme of hundreds of thousands of men and women who have died on the fields of battle..." One handwritten correction; horizontal folds; small creases at the corners. Very good(-) condition.
