FACE SIX BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS FRIDAY, DECEMBER », 19B8 Tito Likes Boats but Taste In. Painting Etnbarassing By STAN SWINTON' day in the home of Mr, and Mrs. BRIONI, Yugoslavia (AP) — You can find out a lot about a man if you poke around hisj S - T ^ £ eavvisand Mrs w w Peter . living room for a while — even a dictator. For instance, Marshall Josef Broz Tito, President son left Sa ' turda y for sedaiia. MO., Mr. and Mrs. Charles Davis and son of Lepanto and Mr. and Mrs. Olis Rice and children spent Sun- of independently Communist Yugoslavia, likes boats — be they models or real speedboats, His taste in antique statuary is excellent and his taste in painting embarrassing. You reach the Tito mansion by ( his life as a revolutionary, often, merger? in hiding. I i"eli that he must have] A good deal of this is expected walking up a winding drive, past fountains lighted with changing colors at night and wooded groves whc*re white-tailed deer hide. Just short of the house, you see the sleek convertible Tito lives to drive. Too, you pass carriages drawn by magnificent grey horses. And then yo 1 ^ are looked over by security guards and into the house you go. The living room is the reverse of cozy. The big room is floored in black marble. At, the far end is a piano, prettily painted gold and ivory. Five model ships are spotted around the room: an old galleon, a big model of the coastal vessel Vladimir Nazor in drydock, and thre« sailboats. Roman Statuttes Inside a glass case are dozens o beautiful Roman statuettes, al magnificently preserved and exe cuted with a grace which hints they likely were the work of Greek slaves. Tito proudly reported al were excavated on Brioni. Oddly out of place in the room is a Spanish cavalier in delicately painted porcelain—but not nearly as out of place as a large statue o a nude girl with her hands covering her face. This stands outside on the veranda. The veranda stretches the length of the house. F*rom it you can look down through the oak trees to a snug artificial harbor in which Tito keeps his speedobats. which he pilots himself. A winding' cemenl staircase littered with acorns lead up to the house. Often Tito climbs into a speedboat with his hansome brunette wife and roars out to Vanga, a smaller island. There he likes to exercise a hobby shared with President Eisenhower—cooking. Tito is an ardent amateur chef. Man of Action The home of the boss of Yugoslavia is that of a man of action, except for the oddly out of place piano and Spanish cavalier. But most out of place of all is the one big oil painting which stands in his living room. The frame is battered, the painting torn in several places. It shows plump women holding down a cow, while cherubs wing about, and as a. work of art it is very inferior. The dynamic Tito spent most of where they will spend several days in the home of their son, S Sgt. Sherman Peterson. Mrs. Lula Mae Jacobs and son _ Ronnie spent Saturday at Whitton picked up a conviction somewhere!

He has held aloof of the AFL-CIO and said the merger can't endure. Never theless, the miners someday may join up. Independent railroad unions are actively considering entering the AFL-CIO. They are the Brother hood of Firemen and Enginemen and the Brotherhood of Railway Trainmen, with a combined membership of nea rly 300,000.

Itfl—An agreement to let a plumber's helper keep a third of the $60.000 he found jn a vacuum jug- buried in the basement of a Dallas home was reached Wednesday. Under it Jackson Davis., 24, Corsicana Negro, would receive $5,000 in addition to the $15,000 he spent before his find became known. The out-of-court settlement was announced by his attorney Matt Johnson. Davis uncovered the money while digging in the home of a Dallas cotton man. William D. Feder Jr. Dallas officers became suspicious of Davis' spending, arrested him and took the money, which they deposited in a bank. Davis was released and sued Felder. Sheriff Bill Decker-of Dallas and two of his deputies. Felclor said he didn't know the money was buried in his home but assumed his late father buried it during the depression when banks were failing. Federal Judge T. Wnitfield Davidson of DnJJns said the money would not be released by his court until some disposition is mnde of the claim of Mrs. Elsie Hnynes of Dallas who contends it wns her husband's. sion. The agreement has worked well.j as has a separate, similar deal among the building trades unions. Meany's job will be to get the unions which have refused to go along with such arrangements, j such as the teamsters, to line up.j Politics is likely to be an issue | too. Some leaders of former ALFi unions are Republican-inclined J and may balkt at any attempt onj the part of the majority of union chiefs who prefer the Democratic I party to make n formal choice between presidential nominees in the coming campaign.
