Page Fourteen - Blytheville (Ark.) Courier News - Friday, June M. MCT Blytheville Man Aids India Rice Farmers HOME SWEET HOME — Mr. and Mrs. James E Wimberly and their sons, Jimmy and Chris visited here this week. Although they live in India, where Jim works for the Ford Foundation, they still call Blytheville home. (Courier News Photo) Jim Wimberly would be a good man to have on hand in any country where people eat. But in India his technical skills are as precious as a rain drop in the Bihar, the arid, drought - stricken section of the country. In India he plays a vital role. A native of BlytheviUe, Jim has a master's degree in agricultural engineering from Louisiana State University. His specialty is rice processing. With his wife and ttier two sons, he arrived here this week after the first year of what probably will be a five • year stint in India. They plan to return in three weeks. As an agricultural consultant on the staff of the Ford Foundation, Jim has varied duties. He advises the Indian secretary of agriculture in planning, assists in the design and implementation of machinery and and. And he does almost all of (ground." lis work by hand or bullock (a kind of ox.)" • How would a transposed Mississippi County farmer fare under these conditions? "He would probably pull his hair out," Jim answers with a grin. Astrological * Forecast * By CARROLL RIGHTER- To determine your forecast, note paragraph opposite dates which include your birth date.

"In the field of processing," Jim notes, "India is about 50 years behind the United States. Nearly all the thrashing and drying are done by hand. Very crude machines are used for] milling. "You can travel for thousands of miles and never see a trac- !or. The average Indian farmer has two and a half acres of In hopes of alleviating such conditions, Jim labors long and hard, sometimes 30 or 40 consecutive days without a day off. But he enjoys it. "I get a tremendous personal satisfaction out of it," he ex, plains, "I see the educated peo- iple begin to stir, to begin to Jim's wife, Maxine, daughter i s 0 [ ve their problems." of Mr. and Mrs. J. T. Hipp of Blytheville, says the family has adjusted to India less painfully than she had expected. The family lives comfortably in New Delhi, where she takes courses in Hindi, the national language, and Jimmy, 13, and Chris, 6, atend the American International School. Though the sometimes stomach - gnawing absence of good steaks, pork and milk annoys Maxine, she manages to run her household without them. She has lots of help. At one time the Winberlys had six servants including a cook, a sweeper (house clean by Abigail Van Bnren Stop Wife Who Lunches with Boss DEAR ABBY: About three months ago my wife started to work for a professional man. I am on the road a lot, and she . wanted something to keep her busy. She can't type. About all she can do in an office is answer the phone, but her take home pay is nearly ?600 a month. Last week she started fixing two lunches to take to work. One for herself and one for her boss. She says her boss likes to 'get away" from the office for lunch, so they take a drive and eat in his car. I checked the coffee thermos, and it was full of martinis. Her boss is a man-led man. Shouldn't his wife be the one to fix him lunch? I don't like tie looks of this, but I don't want to make any false ao cusatons. What should I do? "MAC" DEAR MAC: Tell y«ur wife that you do not approve of her midday martini picnics, lull! if her boss likes to "get away" at lunchtime, he ihould "get away" with bit own wife. And if you let them "get away" wiOJ this you ought to have your head , examined. DEAR ABBY: I am a 33- year-old professional man, born, raised, and educated in New York, but I am practicing in Los Angeles. I am a bachelor and I met a young lady I am very much interested in marrying. Please don't think I am an idiot, but I have a "nose job", and I'm sure she doesn't know it because she met me with this nose. The big question: Should I tell her I've had a nose job? I'm afraid she might think I'm just another California phony and change her mind about me. NOSE JOB DEAR JOB: Tell her. She might surprise you and "confess" that she's had one loo. Then you can start caving your money for your children's nose jjobs. DEAR ABBY: I thought when a new family moved in next door I was doing my neighborly duty by calling on them and introducing myself, but 0, brother, was that ever • mistake! From that day on, which has been six months ago, those people all but sleep at my house. She knocks on my Hoor every morning before I can even feed my family. She sits until noon and I have to give her lunch or eat in front of her. She goes home for a few hours, then her husband and kids jjoin us for supper and the evening, bringing maybe a package of marshmallows or some corn on the cob.(They have no TV.) They have no phone so they use burs. Worse yet, tiiey gave their friends and relatives our number, so we get calls all the time for them. Some relatives called collect from out of state, and when I showed them the bill, they ignored it. I put a stop to that by refusing all their collect calls. My husband and kids and I can't discuss any family matters with these neighbors here all the time. I just hate hurting people's feelings, but something has got to be done. What? And how? Sign this ... GOING NUTS IN ENID DEAR GOING: Sorry, but if you want your privacy, you will probably have to "hurt" these neighbors, if indeed such people are capable of being hurt. Hints won't help. Tell them yon have your work to do, and they are not to come over unless they are invited. They may even be angry with you, but with a little luck they'll never speak to you again. CONFIDENTIAL to "THE WIFE OF AN UNFAITHFUL HUSBAND:" Don't ask yourself, "What docs she have that I don't have?" The answer is nothing. Better ask yourself, "Woat has she given that I haven't given?"

"That's about six more servants than we had at the University of Arkansas," Maxine allows. Jim worked as an extension engineer at Arkansas before leaving for India. In his job Jim travels extensively throughout India, by bus, train, plane and bullock cart. The famine in the northeast, where there has been practically no rain for two years, made a searing impression on his mind. "You see hundreds of people there who are just skin and bones. They are in miserable shape. You see no water, grain, nothing except dried Memphis Is Jazz Scene Like Memphis will be the scene, baby, for a Jazz Festival at 8:30 p.m. on August 4 at the Mid-South Coliseum.

The Memphis festival is one of a series of four to be offered that weekend by the Ohio Valley Jazz Festival. Others.are in St. Louis, Cincinnati and Cleveland. NEW YORK (AP) said George Peppard, "is piece of time as long as a gnat's blink. That makes it important to live it the way you feel it should be lived-to do as much good as you can and have as much fun as you can." But when Hollywood stardom beckons to a young actor, it's hard for him to go on living the way he prefers. The big dollar makes big demands. And some of them seem a bit inordinate to George, who rang Hollywood's golden cash register in The Carpetbaggers" and is now completing his 15th picture, What's So Bad About Feeling Good?" For one thing, George, who worked hard to become a star, finds he doesn't like the public attention that success has brought. He doesn't like giving interviews, doesn't enjoy being pointed out when he goes into a restaurant. I realize it's part of the busi- " " he get Mrs. Stovall Finishes Course Mrs. Velda Stovall, coordinator of the Number Nine Neighborhood Service Center, has completed a training course in Little Rock.

But I simply don't „_. any pleasure out of public attention, except so. far as it applies to my work." It isn't that the tall, handsome blond actor finds the fruits ol success bitter. He just isn't the extrovert, life-of-the party type and never has been. He always has been something of a loner, one who likes to study others but keeps himself a bit apart. Sometimes I require soli tude," he said, just to read am think. That's why I enjoy going hunting or boating, or flying an airplane." Recently George took a long step toward privacy by buying a 13,000-acre ranch in northern California, which he soon hopes to stock with 6,000 cattle, rather practical," remarked.

Later, after an 18-month hitch n the U.S. Marines, he won a degree in fine arts at the Carnegie Institute of Technology. He worked partime as a disk jock>y and radio station engineer. Before making his mark on Broadway, George attended the Actor's Studio here. He kept alive by employment as a bank :Ierk, taxi driver and motorcy- :le mechanic. Those days of deprivation— »ven then, George valued his irivacy so much he kept an un- isted telephone number—still raid a luster for him.
