(Courier News Photos) US Newsmen Visit Kremlin, Meet Noted Soviet Ballerina (Editor's Note: Here is another dispatch by Eugene A. Simon, one of a uroup of U. S. news and radio cx^utivcs now visiting the Soviet capital. Simon is presidenl and general manager of the Valley Daily News at Tarenturn, Pa.} By EUGENE SIMON j MOSCOW I*—Last night at Moscow's famous Bolshoi Theater our entire group of visiting American press and radio representatives met the incomparable, world- famous ballerina Ulanova. This presentation was a high spot of another crowded day which , included a visit to the closely guarded, rarely penetrated Kremlin, visits to Russian homes and a cocktail party at Spasso House given by U. S. Charge d'Affaires Jacob Beam. The introduction to Ulanova came between the second and third acts of the great classical ballet "Swan Lake." We had seen her dance^a few nights earlier in "The Red Poppy" and asked to meet her. Ulanova is over 40, but could pass for 25—even up close. She is a wholesome, unassuming looking girl. She was quite shy at first but was soon at ease after our inter- preter passed on our opinions of her magnificent performance in "the Red Poppy." After talking briefly with Ula- nova in the anteroom, we all hurried backstage to meet the cast of "Swan Lake." In Full Costume if The entire cast of nearly 200 was assembled In full costume. Perspiration from the just-concluded act still was on the faces of many —and I now know a lot more about the makeup required for such a | performance. The famous theater was packed again for the performance. Again a high percentage of enthusiastic teen-agers was present, just as" at "The Red Poppy." Ulanova and her leading man were called out for six curtain calls at the end of the performance—and still the audience clapped. The visit to tlie Kremlin earlier was another sort of terrific thrill, as we walked through a guarded doorway into that place representing so much mystery and providing so much conjecture for the Western World. The only instruction to us was to take no pictures. During our marathon, high-speed tour, we vis- Egg-Hunters' Spirits Not Dulled by Rain The annual Country Club Eastez Egg Hunt was held yesterday on the Club lawn for children of members of the club, with children three to 12 years old participating in the affair. Although gray skies were overread and rain fell at intervals throughout the afternoon, more than 35 children participated. Few frilly bonnets were seen in this Easter parade of youngsters fashions, but raincoats were worn by many of the children. The hunters were divided into three groups for the affair, with children from three to six, from six to nine, and from nine to 12 years old participating. In the three to six years old group, Mary Lou bsborne, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Richard Osborne won first prize by finding 17 eggs; Michael Coleman, son of Mr. and Mrs. I. R. Coleman found 12 eggs to be winner of the six-to-nine years old ;roup; and Jenny Wren McCalla, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Farris Mc- ited Assumption Cathedral, built in I the 13th century; ceremonial rooms and apartments of the former czars in the old palace, and the trophy room and museum, the latter filled with jewels and art treasures of the czars.

Jordan (/Pi — The Jordan government has stepped up its home guard training program to meet Jewish attacks on its villages facing Israel. Every able-bodied male between 18 and 40 must take a 12-week intensive training program under the eyes of the Arab Legion—acknowledged to be the best military force in the Arab world.

Water is free, yet someone has fixed a dollar and cents value on nature's unpriceable gift. By what right? Go out into the country and you'll find the farmer getting all the water he wants, merely for the effort of digging a well and working a pump. He gets no water bill. Go up into the unspoiled mountains, dip your cup in a bubbling spring and drink your fill. Bring home a few barrels full. No one will impose any charge for what you lake. Go down to (he nearest river bank. Fill as many buckets as you can haul away. You won't have to pay a cent for their contents. Or the next time it rains, put out tubs and basins. Or do as they do in Bermuda: make your entire roof a collecting system lead ing to a cistern. No meter will register payments due. But ask the farmer what it cost to dig his well and how much energy is consumed in operating it. Figure the expense of your trip to the mounlains, not forgetting the price of the barrels. Compute the value of the time consumed in hauling river water, adding the doctor's bills in case you fail to boil it before using. And compare the amount of water you obtain with the cost of installing and maintaining a Bermuda-type roof collection system. Water is free to all. But it isn't always available where people want it in a condition safe for them to use. II s the water works' job to lake over the task of collecting water, transporting waler and making sure that the water delivered is safe for human consumption and suitable for human use, 2<1 hours a day, .'ilia days a year. And that's what you pay for when you pay your water bill. Blytheville Water Co. Water It Your Cheapest Commodity The hottest debate in TV circles for a long time has been between the advocates of live and filmed television shows. Most experts feel that a 50-50 compromise between the two will probably be the pattern of future, but the situation is still up in the air. This situation has its dangers. Red Skelton, with his live show, used to be among the top three programs in popularity. Today he isn't even among the favorite fifteen with his filmed series. However, being on film enabled his show to keep running during Red's long illness, with parts of his older films being pieced together to make up the new shows. Red's well now, back before the cameras, but he's lost so much ground in the ratings that he's losing his Sunday night spot for next year, moving to a later hour. In contrast, "I Love Lucy"' continues to top all the ratings by a wide margin, and filming is given a lot of t h e credit. It, too, enabled the show to run with cuts from older films while Lucille Ball was away from the sets. Now she's back, and new films are being made. But the show 'iclcl its top rating even during the re-runs. One of the top live shows, the Saturday night "All Star Revue", is definitely going off the air toward the end of April, but don't worry your favorite stars will'still be seen. Jimmy Durante, for for instance, is moving over t". Hie Sunday "Comedy Hour. Live or film, the picture won't be right if the set isn t working right.
