Williams, is the subject of a Saturday Evening Post article in the magazine's Oct. 24 issue, written by Richard Thruelsen, associate editor of the Post. Williams is the man who created OUT OUR WAY, one of the most popular newspaper comics of all time and a regular feature of The Register-Mail. He has been drawing OUT OUR WAY for 31 years. He has often been called the Will Rogers of the comic pages. Jim Williams went to work for NEA Service (Newspaper Enterprise Association) back in 1922, fresh from a machinist's job in Alliance, 0. His drawings now appear in approximately 750 daily newspapers and 325 Sunday papers. Writes Thruelsen, who interviewed Williams in his palatial home just outside Pasadena, Calif.: "What makes Jim Williams' cartooning unique is not its longevity or its popularity . . . but its apparent simplicity. For three decades Williams has been entertaining a constantly growing audi ence with his observations of the commonplaces of American life the joys of boyhood in a small town, the exacerbations of middle- class family living, the earthy humor which lightens the routine of a working ranch, and the lunch- pail philosophy which animates our factories and machine shops. * * * "Williams has never employed the suspense of a running narrative to hold his audience and he has always avoided the » sexy heroines, the space ships and the slapstick situations which characterize many of the strip cartoons on the comic pages. The typical Williams panel is a compound of gentle caricature, homespun philosophy and nostalgia for the days before this century came of age." * • " * Before he began his career as a cartoonist, Jim Williams' life had been an almost unbelievable record of adventure and excitement. He has been railroad fireman, cowboy, mule-skinner, cav alryman, prize fighter, policeman, machinist. All this is still a part of him. It forms the philosophy and background without which there probably never would have been an OUT OUR WAY. Many a writer has taken a fling at "doing a piece" about Williams, but the cartoonist's friends say Thruelsen has written by all odds the best one. In commenting on a remark Jim made to him during one of their interviews (Jim had said, "I was a good all-around machinist"), Thruelsen writes: "For a man who exhibits an almost oppressive sense of modesty, this admission comes as a shock. Though Williams is aware of the fame his cartooning has brought him, he shrugs it off as embarrassing evidence that people are wont to make too much o$ too little. On the subject of his other achievements and experiences, Fim is constantly depreciative — he was just another ranch hand, a troublesome soldier, a typical preliminary boy, and, in later years, a failure as a rancher. But a good machinist." READ THE CLASSIFIED ADS Housework Easy Without Nagging Backache j Nagging backache, loss of pep and energy, headaches and dizziness may he due to alow- down of kidney function.
