OUTWARD APPEARANCES By Nick Tinker Near the end of a drive from Dallas to Mexico City, my wife and I stopped for gasoline in Paseo Del Rey. I asked the station attendant about a place to have lunch and he recommended the inn for which the town was named. The Paseo Del Rey Inn is a Mexican style building set back from the highway perhaps a quarter of a mile. We could see the building from the service station and nearly talked ourselves out of driving that far to such an unpretentious place. But we were in need of a traveling break, and hungry, so we decided to try it. We drove through the entrance and down a double-width lane to a turnaround encircling a flower garden. The veranda was beautifully tiled and the inn exterior a charming pink stucco inlaid with bright bits of terrazzo. The building that had appeared so drab and uninviting from the highway, suddenly became attractive. We parked and went inside. The front doors were massive dark-stained oak but these huge doors seemed small in comparison to the lobby. We stood spell-bound. It was love at first sight. Instead of merely eating we mutually agreed to spend the night. Everything about the place enchanted us; all the furnishings were exquisite, spotlessly clean, and the food excellent. We spent three days at a place we had almost passed up, and it made us wonder how many other places we had missed because of their unattractive outward appearances. We've probably missed knowing a few good people for the same reason. Our experience at Paseo Del Rev- really taught us a lesson-not to judge anything, or anyone by a first impression. We might be the real losers. PERSONAL MENTION Friends of George i Boots i Smith, Jr. will be happy to know that he is doing fine. He is in Room 330 at St. Michael Hospital-Texarkana, AR. OBITUARY Dave Graves of Nashville, passed away in a Nashville Nursing Home October 21st.

Oil profits reported by more firms NEW YORK (AP) — Two more major oil firms have ix)sted hefty profit increases in the third quarter and the first nine months of 1974. Tenneco Co. says its earnings already exceed last year's net income. Tenneco Chairman N.W. Freeman said in Houston Thursday that "right now, we are in our strongest financial posuion ever." In comparisons of the recently ended third quarter with the same period a year ago, Texaco Inc. reported an approximate profit increase of 23 per cent. Atlantic Richfield Co. said sales rose 140.8 per cent. Analysts say this week's reports from major oil firms of increased earnings reflect higher crude oil prices and strong profit margins for petrochemical sales. Proms went up during the ihird quarter for: Conoco, 122 per cent; Sohio, 107 per cent; Phillips Petroleum, 103 per cent; Pennzoii. 80 per cent; dues Sen-ice Co.. 75 per cent; and Exxon. 25 per cent. Tuesday's Kiwanis Club speaker at Town and Country Restaurant was Tom Taylor, game biologist with the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission. Taylor showed a series of color slides of a number of game management areas that are located in this general locality, some owned by the Commission and some leased properties. The Bois D' Arc area and the Hopewell area are perhaps nearest to Hope, but the Howard and LaFayette County areas, the Caney Creek area, and the Sulphur River area are in close proximity. Wild turkey, deer, squirrel, coon, duck, and quail are among the wildlife species with which the G&F Commission works on these areas. Taylor was one of the biologists who participated in the program of moving alligators from Louisiana where there was an oversupply to the areas around Hope that lend themselves to the propagation of this water reptile where the "gator" population was depleted. Two Key Clubbers were present at Tuesday's meeting, Willard Willmon, their president; and Bruce Thrasher, Senior representative. Other guests were Ricky Renshaw of Conway, Tom England of Wichita, Kansas, and Jimmy Miller of Memphis, Tennessee. Tom Everett and Tommy Russell, sponsored by Forrest Singleton and Clifford Franks respectively, were introduced as the newest members of the Kiwanis Club and will be officially inducted in the very near future. Trudeau shrugs off bad name BRUSSELS, Belgium (AP) — Canadian Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau today shrugged off former President Nixon's reference to him on a White House tape as "that asshole." ... ..VJ suppose that Lean-say I have been called worse things by worse men," Trudeau told a news conference. Nixon's derogatory remark was contained in the transcript that accompanied the playing of a tape at the Watergate cover-up trial in Washington on Thursday. That portion of the tape was indistinct because several persons in the conversation appeared to be speaking at once. The remark was first attributed to former Nixon aide H. R. Haldeman, but then transcript corrections submitted by former presidential assistant John Ehrlichman has Nixon saying: "that asshole Trudeau was something else." Nixon was to talk on the telephone with Trudeau the following day.

The prime rate is considered, a bellwether of other shorterm money market rates. While it is. not a direct influence on consumer loan rates, the prime often foreshadows future trends in the lending market. Citibank's quarter-point reduction in the rate it charges on loans to top-rated business borrowers is effective Monday. It was the fourth consecutive week that Citibank has sliced the key short-term rate because of a moderation in business loan demand and similar recent declines in other short-term rates like commercial paper. Most other major banks' primes stand at either 11.5 per cent or 11.25 per cent.
