Jnet in the home economics room Wednesday, November 16, to quilt the quilt they had made to be sold to improve the library. / ;• Mrs -Claude McConnell. the presl dent, led a "round-quilt" discussion which resulted'in well-fixed plans, for an all-day Thanksgiving meet to be enjoyed by the people 6f this dsitrict and our negihboring districts. Visiting basketball teams, one from Ouachita county and others of this county have accepted invitations to be with us. The games will begin at 10 a. m. with Bodcaw and Central, Laneburg, playing. ' Outdoor sports and the quilt drawing will be the in-between features of the day. Also, a turkey may be gobbling on the campus to make the occasion more like Thanksgiving. Hamburghers, chicken sandwiches, a great variety of pies, net coffee, and cold drinks will be served at the most reasonable prices. After the quilting, the mothers went to the auditorium to enjoy a reading by Beverly McConnell, a Thanksgiving song and play presented by pupils from the fourth, fifth, sixth, seventh and eighth grades. Parents from every section of the district are working enthusiastically toward improving the Bodcaw school. The following mothers were present: Mesdanves Leonard Russell, G. E.

By George Ross Paul Harrison in Hollywood Opera Star, Whose Contract Ended With Cops and Robbers, Loved It All .Whether it's the cops and robbers in "Ambush," her last picture with Paramount, or whether it's the fact that her contract is about to expire, Gladys Swarthout appears a little perturbed. ®- NEW YORK—Censorial wrath again has been visited upon Broadway's nocturnal nudity. It seems that several weeks ago th son of a mid western judge was in town, and among the places he visited was the International Casino, where the damosels are indiferent to the rest of the world's custom of wearing clothes. This judical son went home and told Papa about what he beheld; Papa was shocked and communicated with his good friend, our Fiorello La- Guardia. The mayor looked into the matter personally and sho nuf, it was as he had been advised. The 'T-n.ternational's coryphees lacked a few essential articles of apparel. Now the mayor is not harsh man. He does not believe in unmitigated punishment. So this is the penalty he devised for the errent cabaret uptown. He decreed—or his law enforcers decreed—that the International was to be padlocked (figuratively, of course) for one Sunday night, when the sinners could sit around reflectively and do penace, fully clothed. Folk who asked to be admitted that evening were suavely told that the "stage was under repair." And, oh yes, the girls will be not quite so scantily clad in future appearances. The same penalty is being applied to a cafe called The Midnight Sun where , Hizzoner discovered in his research, the young ladies are permitted to sit down at tables with the gentlemen who are paying guests Hizzoner frowns upon this kind of expansive hospitality but he doesn't want to be unduly severe about the spanking He thinks that if the Midnight Sun is eclipsed for one night, the management will learn to behave. VVho-o-o! Orson Wells gave John O'Hara the jumps the other twilight with a retelling of tale culled from 'The Haunted Omnibus." According to Welles, two strangers met in the dim and darkening galleries of an ancient ruin. Said one 'Rather spooky, isn't it?" "Bo you believe in ghosts?." askec HOLLYWOOD.-Miss Gladys Swarthout, opera and concert star, has just wound up her three-year movie contract with a little cops-and-robbers flicker called "Ambush." It is not much of a climax to a screen-musical career because, although she received 560,000 for the job. Miss Swarthout didn't sing a note. Didn't even hum. "The only thing musical in the picture," chuckled Frank Chapman, her husband and vocal coach, "is a palno. A guy gets shot and falls on the keyboard." Chapfman has been on the Paramount payroll as vocal coach for the star during each of her five pictures. "But I was not idle while 'Ambush' was being made, even if there isn't any singing in it," he said. "When I read the script and found three places where she had to scream, I decided to be a Scream -Supervisor. It's nice work and very remunerative." Gangster Thrillers at'?20,000 a Week You might think that Miss Swarthout, having 'been the victim of four astonishingly bad musicals, would have Something for Nothing? He Is Not So Sure MEMPHIS, Tenn.—(/P)—Dieting n ditch in which to lay n small pipeline recently, Charles W. Wortham struck a vein of lignite—an intermediate fortw of coal, combustible and heat-giving. Wortham and his son followed the vein, dug deeper only to discover they had undermindod the Wortham home. It's n problem of cost now; "whether to reinforce the mine nnd have the conl, or fill it up and forget about the whole thing. Riding Back to Washington in January the second. "No," was the reply, 'do you?" 'Yes," said the other. . . and vanished! No Tickcc, No Smokee Bert Lytell tells us of an English tobacco company which wished to'introduce it cigarettes into China. • In order to interest the 40,000,000 Orientals in the excellence of its product, thhe company built movie theratrs and gave away cigarettes with e«pry ticket. It wasn't long before the "heathen Chinee' got wise to a good smoke and were willing to pay for what was originally a free handout. The joker is, though, that they til went to the theaters to buy cigarettes—and not to se the show. Carl Crow, we call tells a similar tale in his tome, "4000,000,000 Customers." Where Fact Is Futile Fragment of a not form a Holywood friend: "My Hoolywond inilat- icn was like this: I tsked the phone operator whether there was a copy of the Encyclopucdia Britannica anywhere on the lot. Lhe replied, "What do you want that for? The only thing you can get out of it FACTS!" regarded as a crowning indignity her role as a leading woman in a class B gangster thriller Fact is, she acccept- ed it voluntarily The studio had no musical scheduled, so it proposed to buy up the rest of her contract—at a big discount—and release her. She said no. The studio protested that all it could offer was a modest little melodrama with a three-weeks shooting schedule. She said okay) that it sounded like an amusing way to earn $20,000 a week. "Actually," she declared. "I loved it. The screen play was written by Laura) and S. J. Perleman, and it was the best script I've had. For the first trm'e in Hollywood I could believe the words that were coming out of my mouth. Another thing, although I was born in Deepwater, Mo., and am typically American, this was the only one of my five pictures in which I was an American girl. First Chance to Really Act "Everybody in the company was swell. I nearly fainted when the director apologized because I had to work overtime one evening. The producer never set foot on the set. The assistant producer looked in only three times. I was allowed to choose my own wardrobe. And I had a chance to act. I got more from that little picture than from all the others, and for the first time-^ now that I'm.' leaving—I feel that I really know something about the job." This reporter nsked: "What if it turns out that you gave n hangup performance and pecijle come after you waving acting contracts?" Sha said: "I'd -love that, too. Of course I'd always sing in concerts and opera now and then; that's too much a part of me now. But I think the screen is the greatest possible medium nnd I'd never want to leave Hollywood. It's crazy—but I'm crazy about it'- ll Did Her No Harm Such talk didn't sound like the bitter valedictory of an humiliated primn donna. Other singing stars have faded out of Flickervillo in a huff. Lily Pons, for example, has been grumbling that Hollywood did wrong by her and Grace Moore and Gladys Swarthout. "I must ask Lily to leave my name out of that," Miss Swarthout said.' "I j can't speak for her and Grace, but! really I think that none of us was awfully smart. Anyway, I don't think it has done me any harm." You see, Miss Swarthout happens to be honest and well-balanced and tolerant, along with having a sense of humor. Her first picture. "Rose of the Rancho." was a musical western directed by a Russian out of Siberia and Tibet, and it is a leading candidate for the Ten Worst Movies of the Twentieth Century. Next came "Give Us This Night," with Jan Kiepura, whose fantastic temperament had the whole project licked before it was well under way. Third was "Champagne Waltz," best of her musicals but still pretty bad. Fourth was "Romance in the Dark," notable only because preview audiences were so sorry for Miss Swarthout that they hotly protested her ultimate indignity—being pelted with tomatoes. She didn't 'mention a couple of circumstances I happen to know about— ittcmpts by Samuel Goldwyn and Warier Brothers to borrow her for stardom n big pictures which might have estab- ished her movie prestige. Paramount wouldn't lend her Found He Could Swim When He Had To CHEYENNE, Wyo.—(/P)—W. C. Lewis, plumber, couldn't swim n stroke until he saw his wife drowning and lie !hnd to save her. 'Under those circumstances n fellow could pnddlc with an nnvil nround his neck," he says. It happened when (heir bont capsized while fishing in Snake river. Lewis Ivns to churn the water for 60 yards to do it.

It was to prove a catastrophe for one of the most able and courageous men ever to enter the White House. For hardly had Johnson moved to carry out the policies of Lincoln when he found himself torn between a demand for reprisals on one hand and a pressure for leniency toward the south on the other. Johnson chose to favor the south to cement the Union. Almost at once he hastened to bring Virginia back into the Union, and soon after he brushed aside all regulations restricting .trade with the secessionist states. He proclaimed general amnesty to nearly all Confederates and prepared the way for provincial governments in .southern states. All of which ensnared the President in bitter quarrels with his northern advisers. In succeedr ing months Johnson vetoed much of congressional reconstruction legislation and finally replaced Stanton as secretary of war. The upshot was a trial to impeach the President. The vote was guilty, 35; not guilty, 19, and since a two-thirds vote was necessary to convict, Johnson was acquitted. But his political star had set. Not for many years were the temperate historians to justify his course. Johnson is shown here on a stamp of the new U. S. regular scries, enlarged. (Copyright. ma. NEA Service. Inc.) BEAGLE HOUND English fox-hound in miniature. Solid and big for his inches, true beagle has the long-wearinglook of the hound that can last in the chase. One of the oldest breeds in history — close to the original breed of hounds. U. S. standards specify 15 incites maximum height — any true hound color acceptable. I!V<» HIS 1IEST.... P- / \ AMI SO IS T HE frazzling pace of these fast- r in moving times doesn't mean a tiling the life of the clog. Although his complex, high-keyed nervous system closely resembles our own, when the dog feels his nerves tire he settles down — relaxes —as the beagle hound above is doing. That is instinctive with the dog. We are not so likely to break nerve tension before it gets our nerves upset. Ambition and determination push us on and on... past the warning stage of nerve strain. Will-power silences the instinct, lo pause and rest. And yet jittery, rugged nerves are a distinct handicap. Don't let your nerves get that way. Learn to ease the strain occasionally. Let up—light up a Camel! It's such a pleasant way to rest your nerves —a brief recess, mellow with the pleasure of Camel's mildness and ripe, rich taste.
