Crosby Plans to Come to City
Bing Crosby said yesterday he will probably be in Spokane tomorrow to confer with officials of KXLY radio station about the start of television transmissions.
From Hayden Lake, Idaho, Crosby told The Spokesman-Review by telephone that he hasn’t made any arrangements for his visit to the city but he will also talk with the Rev. Francis E. Corkery, president of Gonzaga University.
Bing said he will not be at Hayden Lake over the holidays. He is leaving for Hollywood in a couple of days. He said he would not make a personal TV appearance from Spokane when the station starts broadcasting.
Bing said he will talk with Father Corkery about the fund set up at the school for a new library building. He said the fund now is about $100,000 but much more will be needed for the building.
Crosby was resting at his Hayden Lake home after taking a short course in animal husbandry at Washington State College, where his twin sons, Phillip and Dennis, are students.
His youngest son, Lindsay, is with him. Gary, the other son, is attending Stanford University.
