Life in Arkansas •By TOMMY YATES Associated Press Writer Some people believe they are just naturally "snakebit," and some people will swear they were brought into this world by Dr. Badluck. Bad luck or misfortune has created many superstitions through the years, like break- Ing a mirror, walking under a ladder »r having a black cat cross youth path. Many will say they don't believe in such things, but ever so often you know of a person who'll drive a block or so out of the way to miss a cat, or knock on a piece of wood as if in jest. There Is one person, though, who certainly seems to have had his share of misfortune. He's Bill Jowers of Monroe, La., a student at Arkansas State University. He also is a part-time radio announcer for KLCN at Blytheville. The Jonesboro Sun said that Jowers was working the late .shift at the radio station when his roommate called. "Why are you calling me at this hour," asked Jowers.

Television and Radio By CYNTHIA LOWRY AP Television-Radio Writer NEW YORK (AP) - Nothing seen or heard on television in years came close to the drama and surprise of President Johnson's announcement at the conclusion of his speech on Vietnam Sunday, The President, looking intensely serious and a bit drawn, announced he would not seek or accept the Democratic nomination for another term, It caught all the network correspondents, including the White House reporters, flatfooted. While there were plenty of words tossed around to fill out the mid evening hour pre-empted by the President, the newsmen seemed reluctant to do much more than ask but not answer the questions in the mind of the average viewer. What does the President's withdrawal mean to the other presidential hopefuls? Who will benefit? Who will be hurt? Will the enemy respond to his plan for de-escalation? The speculation will start on the assorted news show tonight, and there will be, undoubtedly, a rash of news specials. "The Lucy Show," now re- peating programs shown earlier this season, will not return to CBS. Lucille Ball will be back, starring in a comedy series in the same Monday night half hour, but some drastic changes will occur over the summer. When Miss Ball returns next September, it will no longer be as Lucy Carmichael,, She will be Lucy Carter, widow with two children. And the children will be her own— Lucie, 17, and Best Arnaz Jr., 15. Gale Gordon will no longer be Mr, Mooney, the banker, but Uncle Charlie, and Lucy will still be working for him although no longer in a bank. The change, Miss Ball explained, comes partly because certain rights to the old property have expired, but mostly because she thought it would be good for the show to change things around a bit. And she also wanted to get her two teenagers into the act. "We've even got to find another name for the series," she said. "I've got an idea or two but I'm not sure yet. Besides, I really don't think that we're going to make a really big fuss about the changes. If people like it, they won't care whether I'm, Lucy Ricardo, Lucy Carmichael 1 or'Lucy Carter;'' ; : HELEN HELP US! by Helen Bottel YOUTH ASKED FOR IT! This column Is for young people, their problems and pleasures, their troubles and fun. As with the rest of Helen Help US!, It welcomes laughs but won't dodge a serious question with a brush-off. Send your teenage questions to YOUTH ASKED FOR IT, care of Helen Help USl this newspaper, APRIL FOOL, BUT THIS JOKE IS DANGEROUS Dear Helen: Flying saucers? No, fire balloons— those eerie red globes which sail in the air because heat from lighted candles inflates the big plastic bag suspended over them. I won't go into more detail as it might give more kids ideas. These "apparitions" hive now started in our neighborhood and they're giving the police and firemen fits. I wish you'd tell parents everywhere that they are against the law because whereever a fire balloon lights, it might start a fire.- UPSET you," replied the caller. "Our apartment burned tonight and nothing but charred walls is left." Earlier in the year, Jowers bought a small foreign car and was driving along the highway one day when the hood blew up and crashed through the windshield. Fortunately, he was not injured. Shortly after that, a motorist hit Jowers' car, causing serious damage to the automobile, and that left him without transportation to his job for several days. After that, he was driving to work during a snowfall and a tractor-trailer rig approached. A combination of wind and a gust frum the truck blew his car off the road. While working at the radio station, Jowers announces Blytheville athletic events. He recently was presented a sport jacket by the team and coaches. The privilege of wearing the jacket, however, carried with it another distinction. Every time the team won, Jowers was thrown into the showers.

A SPECIAL MESSAGE FOR YOUlllUllllll From your theatre Manager year we were criticized because we did not show s Afraid of Virginia Wolfe" in Hope, because we Last "Who' felt it was unfit to show. "Who were we to decide what you should see?" we were told. If we would inform the people the content of a story they would decide if they should see it or not. Now comes another controversial film—"I,A Woman," Banned in Memphis, the producers appealed to the Su- prenv court, \vlio ruled "Not obscene"—and it returned and is now showing in two Memphis Theatres, and others. We are bringing "I A Woman" for a SPECIAL SHOWING at the SAENGER THEATRE Starting Tuesday April 2. Our personal opinion of the picture does not count— the supreme court decided. We have seen the movie— it was well produced and well made in Sweden, U you are not shocked at its story content we feel you will be entertained by it. CHiIs we could not say about Virginia Wolfe). However- in our opinion NO PERSON UNDER 18 YEARS OF AGE SHOULD SEE THIS FILM- SO . ON THE SHOWING OF "I A WOMAN" IF YOU ARE QUESTIONED YOU MUST SHOW PROOF OF AGE 18 OR OLDER BEFORE PURCHASING A TICKET. Incidentally, our admission price will he just half of that charged to see it In Memphis and other large cities. Veida Seamans, Mgr. Saenger Theatre 'Not long ago one of those eerie balloons landed on our roof. Luckily, a neighbor spotted the blaze and prevented a major fire. Building and sailing such ingenious gadgets is fun, true, but the builder risks a command performance at Juvy. And his folks risk a danuge suit that could ruin them, Any act which creates a fire hazard Is against the law. Parents are responsible for child- rens unlawful acts. Need I say more?—H. Dear Helen: A certain man and I eat lunch together every day. We discuss our problems and enjoy each other's company. Sometimes he drives me home and stops by my apartment but mostly we are office buddies, Helen, I feel terrible because I get the impression he no longer feels like just a brother to m*. I'm ill the more surprised because he is married. Should I cool it?- FRANCIS Dear Francis: Yes, cool It! Whether you spell your name with an 'i' or an 'e' this guy spells trouble.-H. Dear Helen: I have a very good friend I've known for two years, I drive 60 miles once a week to visit her. I take her to lunch, after which we window shop and talk. Her husbaid always seem.s cordial, though he refuses my invitation to come with us. RP- cently a neighbor told ma he calls me the "big shot" behind my back. He dislikes alm.'st everyone, but I thought I was the exception. My friend says my visits are the brightest spot of her week. I enjoy them too. I don't want to cause friction in their marriage, but can't see why her husband would resent me. Should I stop going—MRS. T. Dear Mrs. T: Until you have more proof than a neighbor's gossip, why not assume the husband meant you were a "big shot" in the arm for his wife? Keep visiting.-H. Dear Helen: My husband has four children by his first wife who died three years ago. He has been paying his mother to care for them. Now that we are married, I thought the children would live with us, but my husband and his mother say, "No." They say the child r en don 1 1 ^ want ;to live with us and it should be up to them. I say they are too young to know what they want arri they should be with their father. Why should we keep on paying his mother for baby sitting which we can't afford?-- MRS. X Dear Mrs., X: Which is more important to you—being a mother to your husband's children or keeping the "care" money away from your mother-in-law? If it's the first, win the kids over gradually with weekend and summer visits, so the break won't cause traumas. If it's the last, well maybe the present arrangement is best.— H. Copyright, 1968, King Features Syndicate. Inc. "Egypt" In Illinois The southern tip of Illinois is often referred to as "Egypt." Some say this name was given by early settlers who came down from the north to get grain, as travelers did in the Bible story of Joseph.
