H. HOPKINS Central Press Correspondent Chicago, Jan. 10.—Barkis was willin', but not as perennially will- r.' as former Mayor William Hale (Big Bill) Thompson of Chicago. Yes, Big Bill is willin' to run for uayor of the Windy City once nore, following what ho terms the nsistence of his friends that he re- -iirn to the political arena from which he emerged scarred gut unbowed in 1933. More recently he made an unsuccessful bid for the Illinois gubernatorial chair in 1931). as a third party candidate seeking the favor of the followers of Dr. Tcwnsend and Father Coughliu. More Familiar-Ground. In 1939, however, Big Bill will he back in the fray that he knows i)est, in surrounding, that enabled iiim to stage such a miraculous comeback after a supposedly in j'.orions defeat in 1925. In Chicago, he issued diatribes against the late King George, upset the school system at will, constructed bridges, boulevards and schools to his heart's content, and twice built up,wrecked political machines. All this Big Bill has done, and can do again, he has confided to "intimates" who are not averse to telling their confidences to the newspapers, which, friend or foe. always give Thompson his share of large, .black headlines. Ill fact Thompson proudly asserts it has been newspaper en mity of the sort that would wcai out a less experienced politician, that has kept him in the public limelight for more than 25 years ii Chicago and Cook County. Always alert to swift-moving political developments, Thompson now views an opportunity to lay his lines for 1939, which, though more than just around the corue has been emblazoned in news stories for months as a result of newspaper and intra-party opposi tion to the Kelly-Nash Democratic machine now in power in Chicago Tables Turned. When the opposing party started fighting in its own ranks, Thomp son subtly took advantage of the filiation. Whereas Mayor Edwan J. Kelly was drafter lo take the place of the late Mayor Anton J Cermak, who in turn had beei elected on a landslide of popularity lo give Chicago "a "ecent city ad ministration for the W33 World's fair," Kelly now finds himself on the receiving end of a "decency 1 campaign that will culminate i tho next mayoralty election. Kelly's "saving" of Chicngo in it world fnir year now threatens t be the boomerang which will re turn to smite bit. As deposei mayor, Big Pill Thompson cries -Oi a return to the "good old days." They used to throw mud a William Hale Thompson, Chicago's former mayor. Thompson and bis cohorts, back'dn the dizzy twenties, because of ttwj splurge of construction, paddetl payrolls, and-100 per cent Republican rule. Since 1933, however, a Republican in the city hall has been rarer than a dodo. The city has seen, heard and smelted nothing but machine Democratic politics since then, and Thompson believes he should ride ui the crest of the wave that may put Republicanism hack in power, perhaps to receive what he terms, sometimes without contradiction, the days of 'easy money." 4 Big Bill's Attack. Thompson will ask what boulevards and schools have been built ince be was ousted ac mayor by "Tony" Cermak. He will reply In his bellowing style, before you can answer him, yes, there have been improvements, but they have been partly ' financed by PWA, WPA and RFC Money. In the good old days, voters will be lold, "Big Bill • flnancer his improvements without running to Washington like a pauperized poor relation." Of course, there will j>e rebut- lals about the city's credit following the Thompson bond-issuing orgies of the twenties, but the pub lie has a short memory; jobs are needed now as much HS a decade ago and Thompson, always terming himself a sponsor of the downtrod Ben, will not be slow to cash in 01 that human factor. He's A Showman. The Democrats who tossed Big Bill out of the city ball in 1933 will not have the same deadly am munition for the next campaign, i Thompson's hat is in the ring. Fo; in his outspoken way, to the ic companiinent of downtown parade; and delicate microphones whi=l will give his personality a new touch, he will deftly refer to the pot calling the kef tie black. He will be able lo quote his long time newspaper enemies on th shortcomings of tlw present Demo cratic regime which ,n 1933 was t "save Chicago's decency;" on th charges of graft and corruption i the school system as well as in Mi more famlllan city hall; on th prevalence of gambling; and on th squabble for patronage amon jealous Democratic chiefs. With such a setup in prospect, is no wonder that 'he ambition of yesterday should be stirrin again in the Thompson breast. H 3 older'by live years, but as men- ,lly alert to a "rlpo" situation as .•er. "Just Say Something." And, as always, ho Insures the lood of publicity that follows, his dantant comings and goings by tell- ng the newspaper reporters; '"I don't care whr.t your sheats iay about me, boys, long as hoy say something!" This time, however, Big Bill will lave to beat his tom-toms at the ixpense of someone else, inasmuch is King George V. of England lies n Westminster Abbey. IN THE MARKET Los Angeles.

JL Speaking from personal observation, Ted says: "Cowpunchers are great Camel smokers. Seems like if a man smokes Camels once —he sticks to 'em. Come round-up time —I'm in the saddle for hours, and not sparin' myself. A Camel sure hits the spot then. I get a mighty pleasant 'lift.'" Yes, and to America at large, Camel's costlier tobaccos have such a special appeal that they are the largest-selling cigarette in this country! AUTO MECHANIC Al Patterson says: "In the garage business you have to catch your meals on the run. I find that Camels seem to smooth the way for good digestion. The Mrs. smokes Camels too." • CHIEF SIGNALMAN John Geraghty: "You don't have to be a railroad man to know that speeG and safety —our Watchwords — call for healthy nerves. I smoke plenty. Camels don't jangle my nerves." SALESGIRL Elsie Schumacher works in a department store. She •ays; "When the rush gets me to feeling worn out—it's mo for a Camel, and I get a quick 'lift.' Practically oil of us girls in the store prefer Camels." PERSONAL SHOPPER Irene Sherwood says: ."I guess every woman knows how hectic shopping is. I'm up against that six days a week. When I'm fatigued, I light up a Camel. It helps me to snap back." PHARMACIST J. E.., Bayus soys: "I get in a lot of Camel smoking.
