It was a big week for Beulah, the maid on Fibber McGee & Molly's famed air show (NBC, Tues., 9:30 p.m., E.W.T.). Her sponsor, Johnson's Wax, gave her a fat, new two-year contract.
Few of Fibber McGee & Molly's millions of listeners know that Beulah is neither female nor Negro. She is a husky, 6-ft., 39-year-old radio actor named Marlin Hurt.
Beulah breezed into the show four months ago with an immediately successful trademark — "Love that man!" (meaning Fibber McGee).
