I do wish that people could realize how important this is. If they can't think of it in terms of humanity, then I wish they would think of it in financial terms. I offer my heartfelt thanks to any and all organizations that are trying to remedy this disgraceful situation. Again thanking you for your efforts, 1 remain Mrs. Shirley Williams Rox 91 Llano.

And now the same studio, which is regarded as the master maker of all movie musicals, has come up with another offbeat offering which is also being viewed as a further step in the direction taken by "An American in Paris." This new dish is "Seven Brides for Seven Brothers," a Technicolor and CinemaScope romp which comes to the Paramount Theater Thursday for a one-week run. Sobbin' Women The film, based on Stephen Vin cent, Benet's "Sobbin Women," has as its story a modernized and humorous version of Plutarch's fable of the abduction of the Sa bine women by the ancient Romans. In the film, a lusty backwoods man married a pretty town girl and takes her out to his mountain cabin. Her newly-wed bliss is disturbed, though, when she discov ers that her husband is merely the oldest of seven rugged brothers who all expect her to serve as cook, housekeeper and general handywoman. The only way out of this pre dicament, of course, is to marry off the other brothers, and the boys, becoming intrigued with the idea of marriage, wheel into town and abduct bodily the first six pretty girls they find. The cast is headed by Howard Keel and Jane Powell, supported by "brothers" and "brides" re cruited from the top ranks of Hollywood and Broadway singers and dancers.

The exhibit, which includes 15 of Everett's oil and pastel works, is being sponsored by the Texas Fine Arts Association. Everett was widely known for his landscapes depicting scenes of Texas and New Mexico. But in addition to being a noted painter and a professor of architecture at the University for 33 years, he was also a practicing architect and designed many of Austin's leading homes during his career. His versatility permitted him to master many fields, though, and his talents as a wood carver were also acclaimed throughout the country. His famous wood sculpture of Anne Boleyn at the headsman's scaffold was originally commissioned for the 1933 World's Fair at Chicago, and his last major work was a carving for the canopy of St. Mary's Cathedral here. He died in December 1948, but his works have been exhibited publically several times since his death. The current Everett show will be hanging in the Driskill gallery through September. Jolin S.
