How Familiar Are You With Sheets in Your Hometown? By RONNIE THOMPSON News Staff Writer To what section of P a r is would you go if someone directed you to the 3100 block of Dogwood Lane, or even Laurel Lane? Well, this would probably Bend most Parisians running to a map of Paris. But, if they didn't have a new city map, dated July, 1960, Uiesa streets and many others wouldn't appear. With many new additions and sub-divisions being built in the city, new si reels must be built and named. Dogwood Lane and La u rel Lane are both in (he Johnson's Woods Addition in far E a st Paris. There's Beverly Drive and Crescent Drive in the Hillcrest Addition just off Golf Club Road. Lamcsa Heights, near the junior college, has Bella Vista Street and Sycamore Street, while the Pine Mill Village off 32nd NE is built on Robin Road. All streets unfamiliar to Parisians aren't necessarily new streets. To name a few of the older, less-used streets Corporation, Ash, Wood, Williams, Co o per, Garrett, Ashby, Locust, Long, Fort, Milliard, Carr, Chisum and Orange. Making it even more c o n- fusing, some of the prop&s ed streets will be Briarwood Drive, Durango Drive, Glennwood Drive, Ballard-D r ive, Kessler Drive and Cypress Drive. Paris has over 120 miles of dedicated streets. Eighty-three are paved and 37 are unpaved. Measuring both North Main and South Main together, the longest street in Paris is slightly over three miles. Consider- ing Lamar Avenue and Bonham Street one street, the pavement spans four and one-half miles from city limit lo city limit. Although Paris doesn't follow a set pattern for naming streets as some towns do, such as having streets in certain sections named af t e r trees, there is a certain pattern as far as numbers a nd names are concerned, All streets running east and west are named, while those •running north and south are numbered. There are some exceptions. Take Fitzhugh Avenue for instance. If the pattern is followed, it should be 8th NE. House numbers follow a pattern also. Traveling in any direction from the Plaza, the odd numbers are on the left and the even numbers are on the right. THE PARIS NEWS, TUESDAY, OCT. U, — J OUT OF THE DOG HOUSE — Nuhmber 22383 at city dog pound in San Antonio was a sad-eyed Beagle left behind by young burglars who vandalized the Kate Schenck Elementary School.

Police quickly dropped the "burglary charges" against the Beagle on finding he was an innocent victim.

I5y ROB THOMAS AP Movie-TV Writer HOLLYWOOD <AP> — The record industry, which began with talk—Thomas A. Edison's "Mary Had a Little Lamb" —is going back to it. .Just about the hottest album in he country these days is some- hing called "Button Down Mind." It contains no singing strings, no folk ballads nor rock tunes, not even a sound of music. Just talk. The talk consists of some wacky monologues by comic Bob Newhart, in Mich guises as a subma rine skipper mildly chastising the crew for shelling .Miami Beach. Newhart is; the latest and most successful of the new comics in the record field. Talk records aren't new, of course. Many Americans remember Moran and Mack, the two black crows. They were the rare exceptions in a medium that was devoted almost entirely to music.

There is a growing mass of intellectuals who want their humor sharp and incisive and won't submit to the mediocrity of TV and other media. 2. Entertainment at home. With the continuing trend for Americans to stay home instead of seek- Why do folks buy the talk albums? It's a mystery to some. After all, how many times can you listen to the same jokes? Elements that seem to favor the talk albums are these: 1. The rising intelligentsia. ing entertainment outside, the albums provide a floor show. 3. Joy of discovery. Note that all of the top sellers are new personalities.
