HOPE STAR, HOPS, ARKANSAS Peter and Polly in Toy land Shapter 13-Caught in the Act AChristmoi Adventurt With Santa Cloui Getting Away Prom It All ! MORRIS, Tenn. — (,/P)— Taking a Chouse apart from under a burning roof ' Is one way to save it from fire. v' CdC youths near here found a house burning—and the well dry, "Take *er down," yelled one. So they carried out furniture, took out window frames, ripped off weather stripping and unhinged doors. ''We missed a couple of windows," ^ said one of the youths. "If we'd had tools, we could have saved more of that weather stripping." • HIGHLIGHTS FROM LATEST BOOKS Confederacy Painted Anew Able Burton J. Hendrick throws significant new light on the rise and fall of the Confederacy in his "Statesmen of the Lost Cause" (Little \ Brown: 53.75). Hendrick practically passes up the military leaders of the , south to tell his story in terms of the wealthy planters, politicians, governors, diplomats, businessmen who were the real force behind the "lost cause." The result is a vastly enlightening book, good biography and historical narrative. Some of the Hendrick view point is expressed in this brief excerpt: There is still too great a tendency to romanticize the "lost cause." to picture it as an uprising of the "chivalry of the south," and to regard its leaders as a gathering of traditional "southern aristocrats." Really, the Con federate States of America rose in a re gion as recently frontier in character as the west thata produced Abraham Lincoln. . . Merely to catalog the most important chieftains shows how the insurgent south, in its social and economic aspects, differed from the land of Washington and Jefferson. The President of the Confederate States of America was born in a log cabin. The vice president spent his early days as a "corn dropper" on his father's siaveless farm and chore boy in tasks ordinarily assigned to Negroes. The secretary of sta teat least the one who filled that office for most of the war—was the son of a keeper of a dried fish shop in London. The secretary of the treasury, born in Germany, spent his childhood in-a Charleston orphanage. The secretary of the navy, son of a Connecticut Yankee, started life as assistant to his widowed mother in running a sailors' boarding house in Key West. Florida.

This Story Passed the French Censor PARIS—(/I 1 )—The French newspaper L'Ordrc appeared on the streets of Paris recently with a woman's picture at the bottom of Page 1. Surrounded by a bountiful amount of whitcspacc the portrait suspiciously resembles an uncomplimentary drawing of Tom Sawyer's Aunt Polly.

HE MAY HAVE FINALLY HIT on a combina* tion of tobaccos that was pretty much to his fancy . ; , that tasted all right to him and wasn't too strong. So the tobacconist, with an eye to future business, would make up this private blend and keep some of it on hand for him; IHIS HIT OR MISS METHOD of tobacco blending was never very satisfactory. But it proved one thing to both smokers and manufacturers, that you must have a blend of tobaccos to get better smoking results^ because no one tobacco by itself has all the qualities necessary to a good smoke i THE CHESTERFIELD tobacco buyers select and bid in at die auction sales the tobacco types that best fit the Chesterfield blend, which is the right combination of exactly the right amounts of Maryland, Burley and Bright with just enough Turkish. These tobaccos and the Chesterfield way of blending them make Chester* field different from any other cigarette; IS WHY there ore millions of entkusi* astic Chesterfield smokers clear across the country i They find Chesterfield COOLER, BETTER-TASK ING and DEFINITELY MILDER... just what they want for real smoking pleasure.
