Frankfurt—and Blytheville. Three years In Frankfurt with his mother, the former Miss Mar- Jorle Mays, and his father, Capt. Richard Hager of the U. s. Air Fcrce, have given him an enviable lesson Ui International relations. Being In Germany was fine, he says, but he likes Blytheville better. Here he has more friends among the "kids," a shorter school day, and his teacher, Mrs. Betty Ruth McLeod. treat.? him "like a boy Instead of a grown person." At the American school in Frankfurt he stayed until, I o'clock each day, and at lunch time enjoyed selecting his lunch from a menu "just like when you eat out." Brown-eyed Richard Eager Is a Hopalong Cassidy and football fan, and a real Army-Navy enthusiast "Most, of the time the Navy wins," he points out. He likes to play football as well as watch games on television, but says that he is also fond of soccer, the favorite ball game of Oerman youngsters. "German kids play different ball, ana have different suits. They do not have tackle. They can't touch the ball unless it goes out of bounds. And. they play only on Sundays." When he first arrived In this country aboard the U. S. S. Washington ("the largest ship this coun- try has"), Richard could get along in the German language, but admits that he has now forgotten a great deal of It. "After you begin talking to all your little American friends, you leave all your German behind you," he explains. This cosmopolitan first grader hkes\ "to read more than study" and Is especially interested in draw- Ing. Richard traveled about Europe quite a bit with his parents, and particularly remembers his trip to England. He also was impressed with the great cnstlcs In Germany, especially the one with the highest tower. He was permitted to go to tlie highest part of the tower, an experience he remembers well. "I was a little scared," he says, "for the floor in the tower had big holes in it." He has a sister, age four, and a ninc-month-old brother who was torn in Germany. Richard is the grandson of Mr. and Mrs. Ben T. Mays, 1020 Hearn.
