' THURSDAY, OCTOBER 12,1944 Beauty Prefers Hillbilly Role Attractive Performer Says Music Business Good For Youngsters By JOHN BELFOKI) United ivcss Stuff Corresiiondcnt LITTLE HOCK, Oct. 11. (UP) — !' It's lilllbllly musicians you like, llicn 18-year-old Miss Helen Art! is just (he gal. And even if your taste runs in oilier directions, Helen should nil (he bill. too. Helen Is a member of the "Arizona Rnnch Girls"—a hlllbilly- wcslcrn musical troupe which lets out with songs of (he plains and mountains over station KLiiA twice u day. If you saw Helen walking down the street you probably wouldn't stispect (hat she is a hillbilly performer. In fuel, you would probably have an Idea she was a refugee from a musical comedy—or the movies. Helen Is just that kind of a jjirl. A blonde, a real one, (oo, she lias what is known as a "peaches nnd cream" complexion. She stands five led and three Inches in her highest- heeled shoes, and tips the scales At a little under 120 pounds. Other statistics? You would have to sec her to believe It—but she is a spitting image of Betty arable, the Hollywood figure ga). And that isn't exaggerating a bit. Life-Long Ambition How does one get into such a business? Well, Helen says that ever since she was old enough to ride a horse on the ranch owned by her parents in Htilbrook, Ariz., she has wanted to sing , with a hillbilly- western group. She's been wit!) the "Arivxina Ranch Girls" since she I was 14. Although she's quite n hand at plucking the banjo and "beating tlie bass," Helen is featured with the troupe as a vocalist. Miss Arcl—known professionally as "Dallas"—has one of those smooth; velvet voices. The kind of voice that, when singing a sad, sweet song of the mountains, makes a listsntr want to weep just a little. Helen likes chocolate cakes. Then ' how docs she keep that figure? It's simple, says she. Take plenty of exercise, eat a lot of fruit and get to bed early. Evidently, Miss Ard thinks the hillbilly-western, music business is n pretty good one for youngsters. She said that she would encourage any girl having the talent to join up with such a troupe. "They probably will never become millionaires," Helen said, "and there are a lot of heart breaks and a-lot of hard, gruelling work. But there is a lot of fun to offset the sorrows." The "Arizona Ranch Girls" is composed of three girls and two boys. Music for Helens vocals come from a guitar, toss, banjo, and steel guitar. Besides their two programs over KLRA, the troupe plays oiie-high; stands at schools,,dauces.and. other, gatherings." , ....... Oh yes—Miss Ard is waiting for n certain fellow to come home after the war. He's in Uncle Sam's Navy—and at present is in the Pacific theater. Wants Fair Rates One of the bitterest fights being waged against freight rate discrimination is being "carried on by the Little Rock Real Estate Board. Chairman of the Board's Freight Rate Committee is A. L. Wooten— who never minces words when it comes to jumping in discussions concerning freight rates and the South. Wooten has recently completed a report for the Board 'on the why's and wherefore's of freight rats discrimination. And his report hacked nvrny bitterly at the big railroads —letting the chips fall where they day. According to Wooten, the public relations departments of the larger BLYTIIEVrLlE (ARK.)

' IJCComts J . railroads continue to avoid the ques.- tion of discriminatory rates in favor of the Northern states. Wooten said that Hie railroad public relations departments, when questioned on the subject, have the same answer: the work of establishing railroad freight rates is a highly technical procedure and as such should be left entirely in the hands of the railway systems traffic experts. Woolen also attacked another practice of the large railroads, a practice he referred to as "kangaroo freight rates." The committee chairman said this particular policy involves granting favorable rates to Southern industry, providing that the favored plant does not distribute its product in an area served by a Northern concern. In his report, Wooten also sahi that the railroads have also opposed plans for making Southern rivers navigable, because there is a constitutional provision requiring equality of freight rales -to and from the water ports of the country. And what methods does Wooten suggest for fighting Ihe freight rale discrimination? Tell your Congress- 1 man. Morrilton Minister . Is Elected Moderator NEWPORT,.Ark., Oct. 12 (UP) — The Rev. ^. E.
