The Lou Demie G e People Eight years ago this month, Vincent Foster and Leonard Ellis, opened for business at- 108 East Second Streer, launching at thaftirrie the Foster-Ellis Realty Company, owned by Mr Foster, and the Foster-Ellis Insurance Agency / 'jointly owned. sj' ; " As a team, we worked together. We sold alot of real .estate/handled alot of loans, and sold alot of insurance. As the years passed, we grew and prospered. We are deeply grateful for this business. Over" the past eight years our relationship has been most cordial and friendly. It is still that way. We intend Jo keep it that way. S By the spring of 1952, the insurance department had expanded to such proportions that it was demanding ; almost full-time attention of Leonard Ellis. A decision was made at that time, whereby Leonard Ellis purchased all of the insurance interest of Mr. Foster, and continued to operate the agency under the name of Foster-Ellis Insurance Agency. Our business continued to grow and expand until larger quarters were needed. Another decision |nad to be made. It was decided that Mr. Foster would move his Real Estate department to 217 South Main street . . . and Leonard Ellis would continue at the same location at 108 East Second street. All of the ten mutual insurance companies, plus one *" stock company, remains in the office of Leonard Ellis. No changes are being made, as these are the leading companies of the nation, all top-rated companies that have stood the test of time since 1863. ; After Mr. Foster completes moving to new and remodeled quarters, the Insurance Agency will remodel its office and install brand new office equipment and furniture which has already been purchased and q- waiting to be unpacked. Again, thanks for a very good business over the past eight years. My best wishes to Mr. Foster at his new location.

Bing Crosby Hints at Retirement By BOB THOMAS HOLLYWOOD Wl — For many months, friends have been saying that Bing Crosby plans to ease into retirement. Today he gives some support to those statements. "I have about five or six more pictures to make for Paramount," he says, adding with a laugh, "that should be about enough for me." You can't always cite a trend by a Crosby remark. He tosses 'em oft with the greatest of ease and declines to be pinned down on anything. But he left no doubt that he favors a slackening of ipace. "I've always said that my favorite kind of picture would be one that opened with a shot of me sitting in a rocking chair on a front porch," he chuckles. "The rest of the picture would be what I saw." His current film is his biggest dramatic challenge to date, but he said it is also one of his easiest chores. He is acting in the film version of the Clifford Odets play "The Country Girl." Bing does the role created by Paul Kelly on Broadway and portrayed by Robert Young on the road. The part is that of a faded, alcoholic stage star who has a last chance to regain theatrical fame. Grace Kelly plays his suffering wife, and William Holden is the stage director who tries to mold him back into shape. "They have to do most of the work," Bing said. "I'm the one they're always talking about." There had been reports of protests of the casting of Crosby as a drunk in the film. "There's just one scene in which I'm supposed to get a little tipsy," he asrurod. "The rest of the time it is merely inferred." Perhaps it was the prospect of leading a slower life. At any rate, I found Bing more relaxed and happy than I have ever seen him. He went through a scene with Mis's Kelly and a boy actor who was portraying his son. The boy gave out with a few extra lines and Bing convulsed the set by cracking: "This kid pads his part worse than Hope." Afterwards, he sat on a stool and chatted volubly, gossiping about the Academy Awards and other matters. I asked him if .there were any pictures he would like to do. "Not right now," he replied. "Three years ago, I wanted the studio to get 'Guys and Dolls' for me and Hope. Paramount owned part of it, but sold put for $65,000. Now I read the asking price is up to $750,000! Sam Goldwyn bought it for a million. I wish we could have done it here. "I don't know if Hope and I will do a 'Road to the Moon.' We should have done it a couple of years ago. Since then Abbott and Costello have done a space picture, and Martin and Lewis will probably get in the act too. Who knows "I've always wanted to do a picture with Judy Garland. We've done a lot of radio programs and Army shows together, and I think she's the greatest female talent in town."As a matter of fact I think she's the greatest talent, male or female;" Bing said he still keeps up his recording schedule. On his lunch hour, he slips over to Df.cca and knocks off a side or two. The disc company is only a half block from Paramount, and it's very likely that it was so situated for Bing's convenience. His radio show is up in the air right now. "There doesn't seem to be much money left in radio," he says. He has finished his second TV film and he may do more. But, as with everything else these days, ne's in no great rush. . * He will hit the half-century mark May 2. Part of his slowdown may be due to his physical shape. He admits he has a kidney condition, ut he has no plans for an opera- lion,, as has been rumored. Mrs. Sam Dameron To Be Guest Speaker At C. W. F. Meeting The Christian Women's Fellowship will meet today at three o'clock at the First Christian church. The program chairman, Mrs. Oliver Adams, will present Mrs. Sam Dameron who'will give the work of our missions church and school in Asuncion, Paraguay. Mrs. Dameron has returned from Para- quay, where she has lived for the past two years. CWF Circle Three Meets Circle Three of the Christian Women's Fellowship met Wednesday evening for their regular monthly meeting at the home of Mrs. C. D. Dickinson, Mrs. Edmund Pendleton opened the meeting with prayer and presided during the business session in the absence of the Circle leader, Mrs. Al Park. The devotional, "The Talents" was presented by Mrs. Pendltton. Mrs. Oliver Adams gave 'a report of the assembly meeting on missions held in Little Rock. Following the program the hostess served refreshments and a social hour was held.

The men he had trained to sue cced him took over Russia* Any real change in that year None. The tactics are different. The aim's the same; Stalin had become too obviously brutish and infebdble. The new leaders are smoother. They've spent a year trying to undo, from the Russian view, the mischief Stalin caused. They've been pretty successful at it. His mischief was not only in alarming the West into rearming by letting the Korean War start but then being incapable of doing anything to discourage the rearm ing. The last thing the Russian wanted was a single West European army, called the European Defense Community which wound include rearmed Germans and French. Stalin's tactics set EDC in motion. As soon as he was out of the way his successors shifted tactics. They talked soft, expressed pious intentions, let the Korean War subside in an armistice. Since many French didn't wan) germans to rearm, even in a single army with them, the new Russian attitude gave them more excuse for delay in joining EDC. They still haven't acted to join. Without the French, there can be no EDC. The new Kremlin men, headed by Malenkov and Molotov, have had some family trouble:' They knocked off Lavrenty Beria, secrel police chief, who was their No. 2 man under. Malenkbv after Stalin's death. They've had internal purges. They've had some public setbacks, as in the June, riots of the Eas' Germans behind the Iron Curtain They've promised the Soviet peo pie more good things of life, prol> ably to keep them quiet. But they've had successes^ besides helping delay EDC. They've had a hydrogen explosion which served at least one good purpose over here: it shook American planners Out of any complacency about a long head start on Rus sians in making hydrogen bombs. The Kremlin men seem to have turned a corner, at least" for a time: instead of building up one Half Sizes... Best Buy... v Here or Anywhere... individual as Lenin And Stalin were, they're putting more fempha sis on the top Kremlin group. So far the West hasn't been able to retrieve from behind the curtain a single inch of Commu-> nlst real estate although refugees from communism still pour through. Although neither the West nor Russia has yielded anything, the two sides in the past year have talked with each other, which may seem like some improvement over Stalin's last days, and will talk some more. They talked at Berlin. The United States and Russia have had some talks in this country about President Eisenhower's plan for pooling some atomic material for peaceful purposes. And the Western nations will meet in Geneva with the Communists —Russian, Chinese and North Korean — to talk about Korea and the Indochina war. Optimists say while both sides keep talking there's a chance for peace. Maybe there is. But it will take some proving to show that anything vital has changed. The West and Russia are no.nearer disarmament now then when Stalin was alive. That, for sure, seems a long way off.
