WJ- This historic city of lovers and assassuis saw its biggest blow-out of a hall century last night. A Mexican mystery millionaire set. the mark with a *200,o<x> party at which guests wore everything from lionsklns lo shrouds. Dukes and counts trooped in by regiments, rubbing shoulders with the wealthy ot three continents. But many of the top notables invited by dapper, monocled Don Carlos de Bestegui did not bother to come. Those who did attend danced and wined the night away. But after it w-s all over, lew of them knew mucli about De Bestegui, except that he has millions and seems to know how to spend them. De Bestegui. who gave the lavish "housewarming" to open the palace lie has restored on the fabled Grand Canal, « almost unknown in his native Mexico. His father, Miguel de Bestegui; was ambassador to Spain before the Mexican revolution began in 1910. The family has vast land holdings in Mexico. Lived In Europe Don Carlos was born in Mexico City, but has spent most of his life in Europe. He had planned to spend ^50,000 for last night's extravaganza, but wound up laying out closer to »200,000. He bought the palace two years ago for »500.000 and reportedly spent- »6,250,000 modernizing and decorating it with a fortune in paintings and tapestries. The invitation list looked like 'a replica ot the Almanach d« Gotha — who's who of European royalty. Signs Are Posted De Bestegui also posted signs throughout the canal city inviting the "lower classes" to drop around and peer In at the festivities and maybe munch a little salami distributed by his servitors. They dropped around— one of the biggest crowds seen [or years in this center of heavy unemployment and strong communism. When De Bestegui gave them a gay wave from his balcony, some cheered but more hissed. Several group* of youths chanted derisively, "Duce, Duce." Inside the palace about -«00 guests showed up. One Venice policeman jatd it was "just as well." "I figure." he said, "if all 3.000 of those invited had come — counting a minute for each of them to get out of their gondolas —it would take So hours just to get them Into the party." Hollywood Signs Up Real-Life Cowboys NOTICE OF ANNUAL SCHOOL ELECTION IN WILSON SCHOOL DISTRICT NO 25 OF MISSISSIPPI COUNTY ARKANSAS Notice is hereby given that [he annual school election in the above named District will be held on September 25, 1951, for th« following purposes: The election of > member of By BOB THOMAS HOLLYWOOD, Sept. 4. (AP) _ Casey Tibbs is a lean, soft-spoken man of 22 years with « peaches- and-cream complexion and dark wavy hair. You'd never suspect that he was one of the country's ace rld- ttt of broncs and bulls. Tibbs and a dozen of his colleagues have been brought to Holly- wod to lend authenticity to "Bronco Buster," a rodeo movie. Between scenes he gave me some pointers on his perilous profession. Case, who hnils from Port Pierce, S.D. (he calls it "Forl Peer"), is handsome enough to compete with the Hollywood, heroes. But, admitted a producer who considered him for a contract, "Hollywood couldn't pay him more than he makes on rodeos," " . "A good rider can make between $20,000 and $30,000 a year." Tjbbs told me. "But it's a gamble all the way. You, see a rodeo rider doesn't get any salary; the only money he makes is from prizes. And if his kick is bad, he can even lose money because he has to pay an entrance fee for every event—anywhere from 450 to $150." Eiperlence Illustrated He Illustrated this with his experience with the sheriff's rodeo in Los Angeles. Last-year he competed and won a mere $150. not enough to take care of his plane fare. But a week ago he snagged $1.271, which (lie County Board of Education for a term of 5 years. The election of 1 director for a term of 5 years, and 1 director for a term of 2 years. To submit the question of voting a total school tax of 45 mills, as set out in the District's budget, which shall Include, in addition to the mlllage for the operation and maintenance of . the schools and for the payment of the principal and interest of outstanding bond issues, a continuing building fund millage tax of. 1 mills to be voted for the purpose of paying the principal and interest of a proposed bond issue of $67.995. to be Issued to erect and equip new school buildings. Said bond issue will run for approxiamlely 20 years. In addition to the mill- age above recited, the issue will be secured by a pledge of the surplus derived each year from a building fund tax of 1814 mills voted for the District's bond issues now outstanding. Any surplus revenue from the building fund millage, after the payment of principal and Interest of the bonds maturing that year and providing for the next six months' interest on all outstanding bonds, may be used by the District for any other school purpose. The polls will open at 8:00 o'clock a.m. and will close at 6:30 o'clock p.m. os September 25. 1951, at the following polling places in the Dis- :rict. to-wit: whitton School and, Wilson Tavern. | . GIVEN this 25 day of August 1951. Board of Directors, Wilson School District No. 25 of Mississippi County, Arkansas By J. H. Grain, President and J. E. Crain, Secretary Is not bad for one day'i p»y. Despite the uncertainty of reward. Tibbt has no complaint. Two years ago. he became the youngest man ever to win the Rodeo Cowboy | Championship, which means that he I won more events In one year thin any other rodeo performer. ! "It'» A Good Life" t "It's a good life and exciting, too," he admitted. "Every year there are more rodeos to play. There used to be around SOO or 600. but now there are 1.000. Of course, there are a lot more con-boys competing, too." Casey is on the move from Janu-| ary until mid-November, which Is | the extent of Die rodeo season. (In-i cldentally, he culls it "rodeeo," noli "rodayo.") His longest stop u for] Die Madison Square Garden event' in New York. He's there for about! 30 days. I asked Casey how many bones he i has broken. He knocked on «ome wood and replied, "I've been lucky; I haven't broken a bone since 194s' when I busted my ankle. I busted the same ankle lliree times. Voung Onn Get Hurt "Actually, It's the younger ones starting out that break bones As you get older In this business you learn how to lake the (alls so you won't get hurt. Luckily I started when I was 14, and I had been brought up on a ranch, so I was able to lenrn early." Rodeo riders haven't been able to get insurance until lately, he said, anrl even now (lie rate is almost prohibitive. So a brone buster's medinal bills also have to come out of his prize money, if any. Most hazardous of the events Is the bullriding, he observed. "Your legs can get banged up In the chute." he said. "If you're riding a horse and don't get thrown off, you can get off on another horse. But there's only one way to get off a bull 'and that's by hitting the ground. Those bulls are unpredictable critters, too; you never can tell when one might come at you." Most rodeo performers are veterans at; 3D'and I asked Casey ho' long he plans to keep riding, . "I figure to quit when I'm 30." he replied. "If I can find some other line of work it'll .be sooner. I've been champion so I don't have that to shoot for. I've always told myself I'd quit If I thought I was slipping. I'd rather get out and keep my health."
