Wilbur D. Mills, Dd Ark., said Tuesday that Mills is not expected to return to his congressional office this week. Gene Goss, Mills' administrative assistant, could not explain why Mills did not appear at his Washington office Tuesday, but Goss said Mills still was at his suburban Virginia home. It was the eighth day that Mills failed to show up since he was involved in the bizarre Tidal Basin incident in which a woman companion plunged into the backwater of the Potomac River. Tuesday also was the day when the House narrowly missed overriding a presidential veto of a bill cutting off aid to Turkev. Mills, chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, has not been seen publicly since he was involved in an em- barassing incident with an ex- stripper and U.S. Park Police at Washington on Oct. 7. KANSAS STATE FAIR'S For the second year in succession the Hope watermelon booth in the Arkansas Building at the State Fair was headlined as one of the top attractions, drawing thousands to view the world's longest melon. Also, on display was the 1974 Kansas champion melon which was 117 pounds and 35 —Hope (Ark.) Star photo by Pod Rogers inches long. Kansas conceded defeat in the melon contest but they retaliated by sending a loaf of bread to Pod Rogers (which was displayed with the two melons) which they called the world's champion loaf of bread. It was 4y 2 feet long. Letters To The Editor PRAISES HOPE Editor The Star: To the people of Hope: It seems a bit strange as a journalist to be using this form to express an opinion I formed over this past summer, but a letter to the editor seems to be in, order....... ..•". • While working as features and photo editor of the Star this past summer, I found out some very nice things about my home town; namely, that the people in Hope are great. I had always been told by my various journalism professors to expect criticism and very little praise in the "real" world of journalism. I am glad to say in this particular instance that the advice was wrong. Instead, all of you were kind enough to compliment and encourage a young newspaperwoman. I don't think a day went by that someone didn't say a few kind words about an article that had recently appeared. When your public (who is, after all, your "real" boss) is so nice to work for, it is a pleasure to try and do your best. Anything less would have been a betrayal of the confidence you expressed in me I have no idea where I will be once I receive my masters' from the University of Georgia, but I am sure that the people I will write for cannot begin to measure up to Hope's standards. Thanks again for all your many kind words and deeds. Sincerely CONNIE HENDRDC To the Citizens of Hope: The 30th annual Third District Livestock Show and Rodeo is now history, but we would be amiss if we did not express our, appreciation to each of you for your .support;of the show this, ' year! By exhibiting, working hard, and patronizing the Livestock Show, you have each helped make it the best ever! We wish to take this opportunity to express special thanks to the following groups and organizations: Hope FFA, Hempstead County Rescue Unit, Cooperative Extension Service, University of Arkansas Southwest Branch Experiment Station, Third District Arts and Crafts Association, Extension Homemakers Council, Boy Scouts, Future Homemakers of America, 4-H Council, National Guard, Arkansas State and Hope City Police, and Hempstead County Sheriff's Office. The list of individuals who contributed to this joint effort is endless, but to each of you who assisted with the show, please know that your help is appreciated—without you, it would not have been possible. Thank you, THIRD DISTRICT - LIVESTOCK SHOW ASSOCIATION Arch Wylie, President Lions hear suggestions on dealing with people Obituaries ED FOUNTAIN Ed Fountain of Bossier City, La. died Tuesday in a Shreveport hospital.

Edwin Cox, public relations consultant for Lion Oil Company of El Dorado, spoke I 'ito the Hope Uons; Club Monday- ''during the weekly luncheon hour at the Town and Country restaurant. The speaker has been with Lion Oil since 1945, starting as assistant advertising and sales promotion manager and becoming sales training manager in 1956. From 1958 until his retirement in 1971 he served as public relations manager for Lion Oil Co. He is now serving as a public relations consultant for Lion since the company was purchased by the Oil Shale Corporation in 1972. Through the years he has held positions in many civic and industrial organizations. Cox used a flip chart as he spoke to those present and made an excellent presentation on how to deal effectively with people. The short course on public relations was actually the ground rules for a salesman or a company in its dealings with other people and companies. First; the evaluation of the salesman by his prospect. Is he polite? Does he do a good job? Is he interested in me? Second; It is a matter of putting your best foot forward by your attitude, knowledge, enthusiam, willingness to change, willingness to change, willingness to work and having a sense of humor. Third; understanding others. Being willing to listen and learn about their problems and to work as a team. Many other points were brought out in the presentation but the key seemed to be in communication. Being considerate of the other fellow's needs, his time, and his opinions and making sure that there are no misunderstandings. At the close of the short course on getting along with other people many club members filed by to express their appreciation for the talk and to see if Cox might be available to speak to their own companies and organizations. Jim Gunter, program chair LET'S GIVE HIM A DAY OF REST GUILDFORD, England (AP) — The latest" issue of the Guildford Diocesan Directory and Yearbook indicates the clergyman's day off, printed immediately after his telephone number.

"We're happy about the latest news of our children, and we would like to share it with our friends in Hope," write Dorothy and Fielding Huddleston from White Oak, Tex. "Our oldest son Leslie was one of 16 boys chosen from the School of Pharmacy at the University of Texas to attend a new pharmacy hospital program this term at Bear County Hospital in San Antonio. He will graduate from the School of Pharmacy at Austin in December. Our next son Gary Moore made the Pharmacy Dean's List with high honors in his first semester at UofA. Our next son, who is 16 today, is his team's quarterback, and president of his class, and in his first year at White Oak made the honor roll list. His sister Tami was chosen Junior High cheerleader. She and her sister Holly Ann (sixth grade) also made the honor roll list. Their dad's team (with this being the first year in history that White Oak school has been in AA classification) have a five-won, 0-loss record. Mom's record isn't so good—after teaching first grade for so long, these 27 fourth-graders are keeping me studying." Best wishes. Dorothy (Moore) and Fielding Huddleston Mrs. Laura Martin of Hope has been appointed this city's campaign treasurer of the 1974 March against Dystrophy.
