Pag« Four - Blyth«vill« (Art.) Courltr N«w» - Monday, April »,_18« By TOMMY YATES Associated Press Writer It's amazing how spring! weather perks up a person. It's as though it awakens a dormant supply of energy, which begins gushing through a person like snow melting and running down the hills to the streams. . For awhile, it seems you don't actually mind hearing the alarm in the mornings. You stretch as if your new found energy will help you go out and conquer all obstacles. It's like holding the winning ticket to a new color television set. You feel like giving up smoking, at least until that first cup of coffee. Spring does wonders that no other season of the year can claim. Those bare tree limbs, which have been battered and whipped around by winter for months, begin flexing their mus- cl«s, popping out buds *nd that soon will produce shady leaves and colorful flowers as though they were boasting of their victory over the cold, icy winter. Green sprigs of grass begin fighting their way through the layer of deaid grass and leaves, the victims of winter. Birds begin courting the spring with their delicate whistles as though they desperately feared it would fade away. They dance .across the lawns pouncing upon new signs of life so that they may survive themselves. Those ego guys in their convertibles seem to pop out" from everywhere as though they h«d , been stored for the winter, .and I suddenly turned loose to prey I upon the hot pavements < and 'sport the young girls around, who will ride while knowing the winds will knock the tease out of their hairdos. All this, however; comes with the first signs of spring. It isn't long before the temperatures become warmer, the grass grows higher and you have to guide the lawnmower around the yard more often. And before you know it, you catch yourself wishing for an early fall with 'its cooler temperatures and dead.grass.

SHOW GIRL—Mrs. Paul Jensen of Mountain View puts fte finishing touches on a Walnut basket which she made for the annual Ozark Foothills Craft Show which will be used i in Mountain View April 19-21. Hal Boyle \ By HAL BOYLE NEW YORK (AP) - In the mad scramble for success today it is as important for a man to check his social image regularly as it is for him to have the oil changed in his automobile. If his image isn't fairing so •well, it is imperative that he do something about it real soon. Otherwise he'll lose status. And that's bad. A fellow without status is like the face on the clock in an airport terminal: easy to see but not worth remembering. How can you tell for sure whether your image is okay? Well, it probably needs to be changed if— Your wife is taking in laundry to help make ends meet, and her customers complain to you about the quality of her work.

The local gendarme drops b> to tell you confidentially tha your elderly grandfather has been tossed into the clink again for starting, a fight in a rowdy tavern on the wrong side of the railroad tracks. • Your teen-age daughter is ept after school three days out : five for insisting on popping er chewing gum out loud in ;story class. At the office you're getting ihead so slowly that you have to upplement your income by selling shoelaces and cheap neck- es to the other fellows. Culturally, you feel out ol lings because you haven't reac ny good books lately. How can ou when you owe the public li jrary so much in fines that you lesitate to go into the place any more? Cobwebs are gathering on your busted television set because the last two times you called the repair man in you didn't pay the bill.

Neither the boss nor the office boy seems able to remember your name. The coin changing machine in the office lunchroom rejects the quarter you put into it.

Man, if these things are true about you, your image has slipped to zero minus. What can you do to change this dangerous situation? Only one thing. Inherit money. Lots of money.
