' **Ct Tfc - Wythtvine,(Ark.) Court* Newt - Tuetcty, April », 1W MILITARY.WALTZ comes with, the changing of "the guard at the monument to Victims of Fascism and Militarism to East Berlin. Soldiers advance toward each other, dos-a-dos and goosestep away with a flourish. John Bowen photographed the maneuver on a recent trip abroad. Boyl e ||p;W,HffiK-{AP.) -Her four score years rest lightly on the b|tthe spirit of. Dame Edith perhaps; the most hon- ol|9 of living English actresses. iiSiiiniiiiiniiiiBiiniiiiiiiiiiiniuiiiiniiiiiiuiiiiiiiiiiiiii 1 of Mm In Service - D_ower Urmy S.Sgt. "W."C.-IX)wer of Blytheville,left last;week for a tour of duty in Vietnam. He previously spent a year in Ko- rga- and one-and-one half years iSSGreece before receiving his latest assignment. Dower is a iraiiuate of the Trade High Eool in Wilson. Steveni .-'iirady Everett Stevens, son ofeMr. and Mrs. Charlie Stevens of Blytheville, has receiv- egfa direct commission as 2 lieutenant in the Army, being promoted from CWO-2 while serving near Pleiku, Vietnam. Stevens' wife, Marilyn, is tJjjE daughter of Mr. and Mrs Jfcmes H. Rhea of Cooler, Mo. Marine Pvt.' Paul H. Drew Jry,' son of Mr. and Mrs. Paul Jlgprew Sr. of Blytheville, has completed two weeks of combat tf^jiing at Camp Pendleton, Calif Pvt. David Kennedy son of Mr. and Mrs. Da- . . vjftKennedy of Blytheville, has two weeks of combat a tCamp Pehdleton, Floyd D. Baker, whose Joamw, is'the daughter W Mr. and Mr*. Marvin Martin ."Living is my .hobby," she said. "I'm 80—so they tell me. I hope you find it difficult to believe. I've had nothing to do with it:" She wore a vivid spring- bright frock. Not for her the accoutrements of a grande dame —the tower of silver hair, the lace handkerchief, the silver- nobbed cane. Her hazel eyes sparkle, her short gray curls shake defiantly at times. "I work steadily and hard and am not conscious of age," she remarked. "I have no particular goals now, except to go on doing creative work. That is always exciting. "I'have no retirement plan. I'll continue to work as Jong as people want me and I enjoy it." Dame Edith—she became a commander of the Order of the British Empire in 1946—won six "best actress" awards for her latest film, "The Whisperers," in which she played a lonely old Jady on welfare. But Hollywood did not vote her an Oscar, nor did it in 1964, when..she was nominated for "Her work in "Tom Jones." "I was disappointed momentarily," she acknowledged. "It would have been the cherry on the top. But I never worry about awards. My mind doesn't work that way. If you let something like that bother "you, you had best get out of the business." Dame Edith, whose father was a postmaster and whose mother ran a lx>ndon boarding house next door to'-a home in which lived a small lad named Noel Coward, worked in girlhood as a milliner's apprentice. Both parents frowned on her acting aspirations. Their objections ' collapsed when teen-aged Edith,-who had never earned more than $1 a week in the millinery shop, was offered $12.50 on the stage. The worst year of her. life was 1935, when she lost both her mother and her husband, George Booth, a petroleum engineer. Childless, she dwells alone now in a flat near Piccadilly Circus, the Times Square of London. Here is her philosophy: "I never pined for roles I never got. That's why I'm looking so well. There's nothing eating at me. It's very aging to go through life carrying a burden, and thinking you should have done something you didn't. "I'm a great admirer of living -not grumbling. I think that grumbling brings nasty things into your life. One of the ways not to look your age is not to grumble or overeat or over- drink. "When I go for a walk, I feel, should pay for the privilege of it. 1 believe gratitude is a very creative virtue. The more things you are grateful for, the more you'll find worth your gratitude." Then, with a crisp but kindly smile of dismissal, she rose and said: "I don't really know me. We never really know ourselves. But I really have nothing else to say now. I think you've torn me limb from limb." QUICK QUIZ Q — How large is the green turtle, whose flesh is .highly prized for making turtle soup? A — Individuals weighing 850 pounds have been reported, although those captured off the coasts of the United States comr monly weigh less than 200 pounds. Q — Which is the world' oldest comic strip? A — "Mutt and Jeff", which celebrated its 60th anniversary on Nov. 15, 1967. "Mr. A. Mutt" was the title of the strip when it made its first appearance in The San Francisco Chronicle on Nov. 15, 1907. Q—What is the harvest moon? A — The full moon that occurs nearest the time of the autumnal equinox, Sept. 23. ESD Lists Services The Blytheville office of th Employment Security Divisio (ESD) placed 174 persons wit area employers during th month of March, J. Mauric Williams, manager of the office said yesterday. > Thirty-four of these person hired were over age 45, an 99 of those employed throug the local ESD were women Williams-said. New applications for wor last month totaled 401 with probable increase when man young people, who will soon b out .of school,, begin s e e k i n out of school,, begin s e e k i n summer employment, William said. "We need the.help of ever; employer in the area," William added, "and we are asking tha each employer survey his sum mer requirements to determin whether or not he can emploj on or more of these youn, people." JACOBY ON BRIDGE The student watched with awe as the professor proceeded to make four spades. It wasn't that the student didn't think that the hand couldn't have b.een made, but rather that the professor rattled it off without any apparent thought. To start, the professor discarded a heart from dummy on the third club lead. East also let a heart go. West's .next play was a fourth club; A diamond was discarded from dummy and the professor overruff- ed East's 10 of trumps with the king. The professor played the ace of trumps and noted a second heart discard by East. The next play was a trump to dummy's nine and East discarded a third heart. The student expected to see the professor cash dummy's queen of trumps, but he shifted to the ace of diamonds. Then he ruffed a diamond and led a trump to dummy's queen. This picked up West's jack and left East with nothing but troubles. He couldn't afford to throw another heart away, but a diamond discard represented just as much luxury. • Actually'East did chuck the diamond, whereupon the professor ruffed another diamond with his last trump and made the last three tricks with, the ace and king of hearts and dummy's last diamond which had NORTH ' 23 VJC94 4A7543 + 106 WEST EAST AJ82 A 10 V JO VQJ8652 •»Q92 «-K1086 *AKQ943 +87 SOUTH (D) AAK7653 VA73 ' * J + J.52 North-South Vulnerable West North East South ' Pass 3 + Pass Pass 2+ 2 A Pass 44 Pass Opening lead — +K become a winner. "Didn't you have any prob lems at all?" asked the stu dent. "Not really," replied the pro fessor. "It .was just a matte of counting. East showed ex actly three black cards. When ! his first three discards wen | hearts, it was obvious that In had started with either six o seven hearts. If he had start ed with seven I couldn't make the hand. Therefore I playet him for six only. I had to star diamonds while I still had om trump entry to dummy in or der to get three diamond leads and exhaust West's diamonds.'
