(U.P.) — Thc Philadelphia Phillies, dirtied doormats of the National League for eight of tile lust 10 yeari, today stopped trying to kill baseball nd prepared to administer the coupe de grace to vaudeville. Probably working on thc theory that Slilbe Park funs can stand a bit of entertainment, any kind at all, the new Phillies, as they shall be known henceforth, have come up with one of thc greatest bands of vocalists, acrobats and terpsl- choreans in the history of the late sport known as vaudeville. In the past, the Phils have always been able to prove their right to the title of comedians. Manager Ben Chapman Is working' overtime trying to get fresh billing, ing, evidently tired of being straight man to baseball's black- face act. He has thc cast this season which could lay 'cm in the aisles In the old Keith's Orpheum —with thc accompanying baseball still doubtful but undoublably on ic upgrade. Meanwhile, and henceforth, when lie Phils go Into thc last half of he ninth with Bucky Walters lowing them down and thc score impty-nlnc to nothing against hem. they'll still be able to make he customers go home contented .nd smiling, , Legion Home In There is, for instance, the Calyp- 0 and 7. o Quarter of catchers Andy Bern-, This checker tournament Is nick.

Byrri, th lightest man in the ring at 188, fl*med It wise to tak his partner, »-ho began his assault from the t^Sr, using Welch's back as a target fov his bone crushing blows. Roberts and Byrd .who alternated . frequently proved too much for ttpy Hub the scrapr'y matmart nmoni; the oi\cc \ihuUlc Phillies. "We iiei'd spirit," the curncsl and likable chapman explained. "We've gill U> got rid of this feel- Inir of dcfcatlsr.i which has hurt su lonf:- 'Even ilii- f:n»> would enjoy our special show." added road secretary Babe Alexander. "We have singing acts, dancing numbers and gymnastic tricks I think they would enjoy. ,But of course, we have to piny some baseball first. We don't want anyone to think we are clowns." Which undoubtedly is a well- founded Impression. But It Is a start in the right direction, even If it docs s;et the Phils a reputation for having put the final uhammy on vaudeville And if It prods the Phils out o( the cellar It could'nt happen to a. nicer guy that Chapman nor a more patient bunch of fans than the Pliilaclclphtans.

TQM LITTLE REALTY CO. Phom 861 NO. n nf a Scries Walcli Icr them c.irh Tuesday. Water in liquid form is commonly referred to as "hard" water or "soft" water. This means that ' one kind contains mineral matter and the other docs not. Rain water is "soft" water—water in very pure form. "Hard" water results from its having flowed through a region in which it has been dissolving minerals in thc rock formations as it passed through. Boiling "hard" water until it becomes vaporized, then condensed back to liquid, converts it info "soft" water, because in this manner the minerals arc separated or precipitated out. This makes "distilled" water.V* Our water here in Blythevillc is of the soft variety . . . pure healthful water. Use it frely to promote better health.
