In-N-Out Burger, the plain-wrap hamburger chain with a cult following of Los Angeles area customers, said Tuesday that its estimated $5-million advertising business has been handed to a Seattle advertising agency. That agency, Livingston & Co., which creates the often zany ads for Alaska Airlines, said it may open a branch office in Los Angeles. "Nothing would make us happier than to open a Los Angeles office," said Roger Livingston, president of Livingston & Co.

Jay Livingston, who with songwriting partner Ray Evans wrote some of America's most popular songs and shared Academy Awards for "Buttons and Bows," "Mona Lisa" and "Que Sera, Sera," has died. He was 86. Livingston died Wednesday at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center of pneumonia, said publicist Frank Liberman. In a collaboration that began in the late 1930s, Livingston--who provided the melodies--and the surviving Evans--who wrote the lyrics--wrote 26 songs that sold more than a million records each.

A deal has been signed which would rename the ad firm Livingston & Keye, according to well-placed industry sources who asked not to be identified. Many--but not all--of Keye/Donna's estimated 30 employees will be retained by Livingston.
