MONDAY JANUARY 10,19B8 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PACrB THRB1 Arkansas First Lady Too Busy To Worry About Big Job Ahead It Will Be 8th Phase of Active Career By BEVERLY !>. WOOD LITTLE ROCK (AP) — A mature, attractive woman who takes things as a matter of course becomes Arkansas' first lady tomorrow. As she watches her husband take the'oath of office of governor, Mrs. Orval Faubus will be entering the eighth phase of a busy career which has included such temporary offices as teacher, circuit clerk, Employment Security Division clerk, postmaster and postal clerk as well as her fulltime job as housewife and mother. "I told Orval that he gave me a big job when he became governor." she told this reporter. "But, I haven't worried about it. In the first place I've been too busy to think too much and...well, I always take things as a matter of course, especially since the war." During the past three months, Mr. and Mrs. Faubus have maintained a Little Rock home as well as their Madison County farm just outside of Huntsvilie, where the new governor publishes a weekly newspaper. • • • Their sun, 15-year-old Farrell, Is a 10th grade student at Little Rock Central High School. It has been quite a transition from Huntsvilie to Little Rock, especially for Farrell. "Before the election, he told us that if we.wanted to go to Little Rock, that was fine '— but we'd go without him," said the dark- hnired, brown-eyed Mrs, Fnubus. "A small town school where he knew everyone is quite different from a city school, but I think he's going to like it fine." Concerning her own duties as first lady, Mrs. Faubus announced that she has chosen as.her secretary-housekeeper Mrs. C. D. Jenkins of Little Rock, who served as a secreiary in the Faubus campaign headquarters this summer. Mrs. Faubus' first state duty will be as hostess at the inaugural reception in the Mansion tomorrow afternoon. She will wear a white satin formal creation by Rudolf of New York, ordered through a Springdale, Ark., department store. The neckline is banded with pleated satin matching the wide shoulder straps. The beaded bodice is fitted with the full skirt flaring just below the waist. At (he inauguration ceremonies, Mrs. Faubus will wear a fitted charcoal grey suit, trimmed in black velvet, with a white blouse, white satin hat, white gloves, block shoes and bag. The suit was styled "We had lived only five -miles apart all our lives," she said.

If these services are not available in the biggest and newest of Moscow hotels, what can one expect in the lesser cities of the Soviet Union? Moscow Pravda asks. It says that in only one hotel in Moscow, the Sovietskaya (hotel for very important persons;, are .such services a.s laundry and shoe polishing provided.

I*—The best snows of the new year spread cheer among Texas cattlemen today but in the colorful "hill country" drought-weakened deer were taking it hard. Snow ranging up to 8 Indies in this west Texas area closed a number of schools today, covered highways with a treacherous ice film, but laid a welcome blanket of moisture over crop and range land. In east and south Texas, also plagued by long drought, rain fell. At Centerville in east Texas, W. P. Davidson, 31. crashed to hls_ death in a light plane after taking off into rainy skies against the advice of airport authorities. In the central Texas hill country, a cold, chilling rain struck down countless deer weakened by drought and poor forage. Half of Deer Will Die . "Half the deer in this hill country won't survive this weather," declared Mark Moss, who ranches thousands of acres snuth of Llano. "The cattle con stand it. I've been Importing feed, keeping the cattle in good shape. I've tried to feed some of the deer too. "But most of the deer are out in the hills with nothing to eat. This cold, wet weather gives them pneumonia when they are weak." Jack Love, whose herd on a ranch of several thousand acres nine miles east of Llano is down U) 300 head, said a new weed (he calls it "rat tall tallow" I had appeared in the long-dty hill country. "Deer and sheep can eat it," Taxi Drivers Strike BOOOTA, Colombia (/P)—Nearly 4000 taxi drivers here have gone on strike for more police protection. They say in the past tew months at least four drivers have been killed by passengers and a score or more beaten and robbed. said Love. "Cattle can't yet; it has to get an inch and a half high for cattle. It may help the deer." Both Moss and Love agreed the weekend rains and snow would help but that a slow rain over a period of several days was needed to restore subsoil moisture. In the cotton, wheat and sheep country of west Texas, the snow held out the promise of some winter grass. It also was expected to help put the soil in shape for spring planting—if more moisture comes.
