Recording of the Helen Kane "Boop-Opp-a-Doop"  jargon in the singers $250,000 damage suit trial in Supreme Court, Manhattan has been driving the court stenographer to distraction.  He threw his hands in dismay and yelled for help today when the testimon was offered as to the in-articulate jargon of Baby Esther. Negress night club singer from whom the defence was trying to establish. the Helen of the rolling eyes got the "Boop-Oop-a-Doop" idea.

What sort of sounds did Baby Esther interpolate, Lou Bolton theatrical manager and defence witness was asked.

"Boo-Boo-Boo" he replied.

"What other sounds?"

"What other sounds?"

"Doo-Doo-Doo-Doo"

"Were there any others?"

"Yes, Wha-Da-Da-Da!"

That's when the court stenograpger threw up the sponge and admitted he couldn't spell such things. Miss Kane suit alleges that the idea of the Betty Boop cartoons stole her thunder.
