Williams, familiarly known to renders of The Hope Slar for his famed "Out Our Way" cnrloons, has jusl signed another long-term contract with NEA Service, Inc. This means that the work of this noted cowboy nflisst, often called the Will Rogers of the comic field, will continue to be published in Ho)>e exclusively in this newspaper. the ever-popular "Out Our Way," n topnotch comic since it made its fir.sl nppcnrence nearly 17 years ago, is now the most widely used of all new daily newspapers publish it six days a week. Two hundred and fifteen papers run Williams' Sundny pagd, "The Willetts." These not include the numerous papers in foreign countries which translate thhe feature, Meet Jim Williams Of the many millions of daily "Out Our ways' reders a large share has often wondered what it wa.s specifically about this scries of homely, "human interest" drawings that held such chnrm. Perhaps the best ex- plnniliition lies in nhe fact that the reader can so redaily identify the subject mailer with his own experience. And behind this lies a story, Ihe story of Jim Williams himself. Fir.sl. meet him ns he is today, anc on his home .ground, which is a 45,000- ncre entile ranch near Prescott, Ariz.— a ranch boasting about 800 head ol callle, 45 horses, a swimming pool, a concrete tennis court, and a lake, Ho is middle-aged sandy-haired, compact and muscular. He has the squint that comes from long-distance lookin. Ho wears boots, overalls, a 10-gallon hnat. In short, he looks as if he might have stepped oul of one of his own Out Our Way' cowboy cartoons, fter you've known him five minutes on stnrl calling him Jim, and he kcs [you for it. This is the west that Jim Williams ovcs.and the ranch in the Arizona ountains is Ihe realization of life-long mbilion. He spends his winters in ios Angles, bul Ihis, he will tell you, ; largely a concession to Mrs. Williams ml their two grown children, Helen ncl Bob, the latter just out of Univer- ity of Southern Calfornia. Williams ays, 'I never wes much of a hand for :ie big cities." His career as a comic arlist began vith NEA Service early in 1922. Beor this his life had been an almost un- iel lovable record of adventure and xcitement. These are some of the Kings thai Jim Williams has been: col- ego football player, railroad fireman, owboy, mule-skinner, cavalrymjiui, irize fighter, policeman, machinist, rtist. All this is still a part of him. t forms the philosophy and background without which there never would have been an "Out Our Way' I accounls for his rare ability'to meet !o many clifferen classes of readers on •ommon ground and in terms of thhe amiliar. Jim Williams re-lives his own life n his feature—to a greater degree, icrhaps than any other artist. His Inily procession of "Out Our Ways' contains a cowboy series, a "Worry Wart" series (about kids), a "Why Mother get Gray" series, a machine shop series (featuring his foreman the "Bull of the Woods"), an occasio- lal cartoon of the old border cavalry days, and a "Born Thirty Years Too Soon" series, the last being a nostalgic recollection of life as it was a generation ago.

In short, neutrals today huve no rights during a war which they are not prepared to enforce at gun-point. Slowly at first, lately with a rush, diplomatic conceptions and lineups changed utterly from those known to the pre-war generation. The Allies after the World war, tried to perpetuate their winning combination. France closely related with Poland, Czecho- lovakia, Yugoslavia, Rumania, Bcl- ium, and other small countries, triec o hold the primacy of Europe. Al his fell as Hitler rose, and Germany low dominates the continent. Britain's mighty empire, for severa enerations the guarantor of a "Pax Jritlanica" with her great navy, is n< onger so dominant. Forced to scuttl or shelter in the shadow of Die Italian lir fleets during the Ethiopian conquest, the British fleet is no longer unchallengeable. Britain's dominions strain at the empire leash, her possessions seethe with unrest. In Asia, Japan's apparent conquest of China completely alters the Pacific world. As the League's half-hearted effort to restrain Italy in Ethiopia by economic sanctions failed, so the United States failed to rally support of the nine nations (including Japan) which had signed a treaty guaranteeing the territorial integrity of China and the "Open Door" with equal trade rights in China for all. Japanese domination of eastern Asia and the western Pacific a fact. Dissillusioned by a Europe that is not a£ war today only because it dared not face the awful consequences, and by an Asia that flames with large- scale conflict, the United States has turned inward toward its nearer interests in the western hemisphere. The Monroe Doctrine has been revised into a united policy of all the American nations, and a formal or informal American "League of Nations" is projected In the new Intel-national world ol 1938, the United States gropes toward new policies, new alignments, tha will fit into a world that is as utterly unlike that of 20 years a,go as it is possible to imagine.

"Back in those days," he says, eligibility rules in college football. .1 was big and husky and tough, and that's what counted. The scholastic requirements were pretty elastic, too, which is how I got in. I was taking up art. "At 15 I was us big as I am today. I was tired of. school and got a job as a railroad fireman by passing for 21. Didn't have any trouble, either." But this job didn't hold him long. He headed west and landed a job in Kansas as a mule skinner. He drifted on, and tied up with a cattle outfit. He cooked for thhe cowhands. He punched cattle. One day, down in Texas, he saw some cavalryman come nto town and he liked their looks. 3o he enlisted and served a three- year hitch. He did a lot of cooking n the army, too. And he did considerable fighting— with his fists. He was hard as hickory ajid as tough. He weighed about 161 pounds, was as light on his feet as a tap dancer, adn was a scrapper. He became the light heavyweight champion of hip outfit and when his enlistment was up he turned professional "The first fur coat I ever bough my wife twas with part of a purse won as a pro," he tells you. 'Sh< made me quit, though. She just plain didn't like it. And when a big fcllei busted my nose one night, that end ed it." Tatooed All the time that Jim Williams \va chasing cows and cooking grub aroun a chuck wagon, all he ime he was u he army, he never forgo ha he wan ed o be an aris some day. The ki- who had enrolled in college ar cours a 14 was now a man who skechec a nigh in he cowboys' bunkhousc an in an army barracks. While he wa in he cavalry he somehow picked u the knack of tatooing and his inhere nt artiste ability made him pretty gooi at it. For a price he tattooed lovel pictures on the broad chests and braw ny arms of his mats. Tills was 'a profession for whic Mrs. Williams exiM'essed an eve greater distaste than for prize A front view of the Arizona mountains. Williams ranch house, a mile high in the &k sN> iWVr ing. "I brought my kit with me out of the army," he chuckles, "and one day she found it and I never saw it again." But he still kept on with his sketches, and he was still at it after he had landed a job in a machine shop in Alliance, O. It was While he was working here that he sent some sample cartoons to NEA Service in Cleveland. He was hired promptly, and a short time later the first of the "Out Our Way" cartoons was published. Williams' artistic talents extend considerably beyond his daily and Sunday darwings. In his ranch home are two beautiful ship models, every detail of which he made with his own hands. One is a Spanish galleon for \Vhich he has refused many offers. He is an expert silversmith, a fine water color painter, has even dabbled in sculpture. He built his own swimming pool, supervised his own irrigation .system. Once when he wanted some :ione-laying done and had hired some experienced men for the purpose, they bulked at some of his own ideas, saying they couldn't be excuted. So he .showed them how to do it.
