Your Uuuo . VUortn — Please In v.'hat is sometimes described B "modernist" world, the cry is hoard, "jrivo mo that old time religion" This gives rise to the question—Do you think that traditional Christianity, like thiit of our forefathers, is dying? Three local ministers reply. "/ believe that the religion of the early church of Apostolic days is coming back into its own again. I look tor denominationalism, as we know it now, to play out and to give way to a restoration of the Lord's church —even in our own day." — Harold Littrcll, 603 S. Tennessee, Blytheville. "Ho, I do not think traditional Christianity like that of our forefathers is dying out, but the manner in which it should be accepted and lived, is being up-dated. Truth never changes. Like Christ, it is the same, today, yesterday, and forever." — Joseph N. Doyle, J307 W.

I won't let my children see it." The picture she's talking about is one she's making now with Walter Matthau. It's called "The Feminine Mistake" and it is written, produced and being directed by George Axelrod. It is all about a suburban housewife (Miss Jackson) who has a calculated fling with a womanizing movie star (Matt- hau). She masquerades as a call girl for the occasion. "I spend most of the picture In bed," Anne said. In fact, she was in a shorty nightgown for the day's work, "fliis is all very good for me. I'm a prude and I need to get over it. This picture is therapy. Besides, it will be good for my career." She says — with a note of surprise in her voice — that she likes the way she is being photographed. And she is also thrill ed about one extra added attraction — she's wearing Rita Hayworth's bra. "I needed a low-cut one, and that's what wardrobe came up with," she says. "I imagine they had to take it in." Anne and Walter had a take to shoot — in bed, as usual. It went easily; Anne and Walter are pros and Axelrod is an easily pleased (it seems) director. "I'm happy if you'rs happy, Walter," Axelrod said. "Well, I'm happy," Matthau said. "O.K.," said Axelrod. "That's a printaroony.' Matthau is delighted with the role, that of the oversexed mov- tht hero, but nobody ever saw we as heroic. I have a receding chin, a bulbous nose, my eyes are like two holes in thl snow and my posture is bad — I walk like a question mark." Axelrod says the movie star Matthau plays is hot a direct copy of anybody, although th» public is quite like to make its own guess. "The character is a composite," Azelrod says. "I knew Bc- gart and it's something like him and I know Sinatra and it's something like him. As a matter of fact, I showed the script to Frank, and he liked it. He said that even if it was him I was writing about it would be O.K. — 'If you want to write about me,' he said, 'go, go, "Christianity basically '* « relationship to Jesus Christ.

Banks may lend money on aces, but they pay no interest on tricks that are taken earlier than necessary. South wasted no lime taking the first trick with dummy's ace of hearts.

The difference would be that dummy's ace of hearts would be an extra entry. genuinely believes in a free exchange thinks it should be otherwise, or that it is likely to be.

Tie library shelves today are loaded with detailed, intimate histories which reveal the tremendous in-fighting among top U. S., British and other strategists over key World War II decisions. Choices not made can never be made. To a much - more - limited degree, and mostly within the confines of this country's own effort, the same disputes flared in the Korean war and are raging internally; over Vietnam. Inescapably,'however, many of the decisions and categorical criticisms now being laid down over Vietnam will never be accurately appraised because no one will be able to gauge truly their exact contri- Axelrod says he doesn't believe in censorship — "It's not right for one group of people to say what others should or should not see," he says. "If the Catholic Church wants to say something is bad and that Catholics shouldn't see it," he says, "that's fine. And if the Catholics want to follow that suggestion, that's fine, too. But it's wrong for them or anyone to exert pressure on theater owners not to show a film — it's un - American and wrong."

Possibly, but possibly not. In the nature of things there is absolutely no way to prove or disprove his argument. Anyone who thereafter contended that Gen. Eisenhower and other strategists had "delayed t h e conclusion of the war by six months" would be talking rub- Similarly, if Richard Nixon should win the GOP nomination next year, who will really be able to say what part was played by each of 100 or so key internal choices made by his strategists? Or what would have happened if opposite choices had been made in 50 of those instances? War and politics are trial-and- error enterprises. Generals and politicians tend to muddle through to victory or defeat. The man who "knows" the consequence of every action taken or not taken in such complex endeavors lives in a private, unreal world. 75 Years Ago — In Blytheville Montroe Holland, Billy Michael, Tommy Mosley, Quincy Hodge, Leon Privett and Bob Childress comprise Blytheville's contribution to the all District 2AA football team announced today.
