SATURDAY, Al'KIL 27, 1'MG IH/raiEVILU<; (ARK.) COUUIKR NEWS PAGE THMfc Highway Routes To Lake Needed Work At Norfork Lake Is Being Rushed For Tourist Season Othman Spends His Shillings Seeing Sights At English Fair BY PAUL KOSKNTIKID Unitrd Tress Staff Correspondent NORFORK DAM. Alk., April 20. CUP)—Dnvlcl N. Ornvcs, assistant District Reservoir Manned 1 of Ihe U. S. Engineers, said here today tlint the major fnctor in the future popularity of Noi'fork Lnki* Is adequate highways. One of Ihe major problems would be solved, Graves said, with thc completion of n proposed hi^lr.s'ay route sending state Ilond 62 from Mountain Home over the dam through Jordan and around the Jake lo n point near Snlem In Fulton County. The enRhieers are doinf; everything possible to speed development of recreational facilities at the dnm so tourLsts will be eared for by May 1, Graves said. "I hope the attractions we plan for tourists will offset the inaccessibility of the lake," Graves told a group of Little Rock newspaper and association re|X>i'- Jers on tonv of the Or.iirk region of the state. The engineers will open a public contact office in Mountain Home on May 1. to disseminate information, rules and regulations pertaining to the dam. Free public cnmpine grounds already have been set up at 11 points on the 43-ndle long lake. They are at Tecutnseh, Udall. Red Gamaliel. Biriwcll Point. Point CranficM Landing, Pigeon Creek Bridge. Henderson Landing, Salem Landim?. Tracys Ferry Landing and Jordan Landing. Cleanup crews already are working in thc areas to get them'ready hy Ihe opening of the bass season •May 15. M Among major developments planted is the so-called Panther Day Development. This area has a bluff which Graves said lias been tentatively selected by the Nation;) Park Service as thc location for lodge. Approximately 1,200 acres arc in thc plot, GOO of ^.vhich owned by the government and GOtJ by private interests. Another project announced by engineers was a loop road of Mallard Point. Completion of the road will make some 80 camp sites available which are to be offered for lease within 60 days. Norfolk Dam wus completed in 1944 after tli c moving of 1,500,000 cubic yards of concrete, and is now open to the public. Guide service through thc dam will be inaugurated, and a landscaping program already has been sturlcd, Graves said. Fishing and bunting in thc area has been plnced under state Game and Fish Commission regulations applying elsewhere in the stale. By njKDKKK'K C.

April 27. <UP>—'Ere we nre on 'ampslciid 'cath where h's spem to be against the law, the poet Keats once tossed n lady in the pond, and a 'usbaiul still is 'arasscd. The trouble is thc Easter Fair, .spreading up from the pond where <™ts, in a better mood, also wrote j lis Ode to a Nightingale.

So it's thrupi>encc here and sixpence there and thc little woman always asking for more, and it makes you think of giving her the Kcnts treatment. The pond's 'andy. Or so a weary Londoner told me over a bitter at Jack Straw's Castle Tavern while his wife bounced (sixpence morel on a gilded tiger in the mor.t magnificent, carrou.sci I've ever seen. Rut let us skip matrimonial difficulties and get Eilong with my attempt to describe an English fair. It's straight out. of thc lust century, even to the steam calliope, the pearl buttons on the suits of thc costcrmongers and thc cockney women in black overcoats peddling fresh boiled whelks, cockles and mussels. Fresh boiled whelks etc. are undersized oysters, I hope. They taste ike brass door knobs. Priscilla Lee. the gypsy queen and confidante (her sign saysi of King Edward, sits in a mirrored wagon drinking milk between jousts with the love lines of a hundred sweaty hands.

Everybody had a good time, even so, except for my friend at Jack Straw's Castle. If the auditor bar* in New York is worrying about my expense account, I have good news. It only cost me two shillings before I finally landed a button smack dab in the middle of an old phonogruph record on my table and thereby won a pot of genuine (doubtful) piij carnations. These I presented to a rosy-cheeked youngster. Her smile I think, was worth 40 cents. Even lo the auditing department.

Perfumes ar c iin open book lo his sensitive Miiffcr—cine whiff nnil he can nume ony perfume, and it,s ingredients. Herchclrotli is a new Now York perfume cliemist in Memphis on business. He's also what he describes a.s an "odor engineer." which mean* • he can change a bad smell into a breath-taking essence. If yon have an idea thc Hilary is a sissy, stop and think before you say anything about it. He's big --•a virtual Riant. Big enough, in fact, to have been n physical in- J '-uclor for New York police and •e department civil service cnnd- atc for 16 years before he started sniffing around his wife's kitchen one day and was off on a new career. That visit lo the kitchen led to Hcrcholrolh's discovery of elimination of unpleasant ordors: Just combine two or more bad ordors and veil pet a pleasant odor. IVfrs. Herchelrolh's kitchen always smells like a parden these days, even when ! cabbage is cooking. Cabbage Is a sucker for a mixture of pine, rose and ncwniown hay. Hcrchelroth sneers at chcmisl.s' laboratories and test tubes. They are. all right in their own way. but the best test of a peifumr is Hilary's talented proboscis Thai's because his olfactory nerve is in 3 class by itself. Hcrchclroth's specialty is lakins Ihe had smell out of places and things and leaving n night in May fragancc. Give him a stench and hell give you back a bounuct. The odors of niold, moth balls. smoking jackets and wet paint are doomed when Herchelroth moves in. One job really stumped him. how- ecer — a brake-lining factory in CiTidrtletown. N. Y., which had" a toxic order that was terrific. Her- chclroth went to work, sniffing and spraying, but perfume couldn't do (he job.

Odor engineering has its bad points, he says. For instance. Hcr- chelroth invariably recks exotic aromas. Which causes raised eyebrows and masculine sneers when he walks down th c street. But worse than that. Hcrchelroth must work with civel cat essence That's the stuff that cives women's perfumes their feminity. One drop of it on bis clothes and Herchelroth attracts all the cats and riogF in (he neighborhood when he lcave c his laboratory. Hc-rchelroth's own favorite odoi .is sauerkraut. He loves lo smell it •after a hard day among perfumes. The contrast is a relief. Insurance of every kind Phone 3545 ! W. J. Pollard Agency Glencoe Hotel Bldg, * Just Received . .
