Tuesday, April 30,1968 Lions Club Sees Film bridges, tunnels,.and t«ltod£y|| $CO||t§ HOPE (ARK) STAR, Printed bv Offset JOHN S. DRAPER At its regular meeting yesterday at Town & Country the Lions Club heard remarks and saw a film presented by John S. Draper, manager of the Texas Eastern Transmission Company's Bodcaw station. For a large company, Texas Eastern is quite young. The firm was organized in 1947 to take over the famed Big and Little Inch pipelines that were built by the government at a cost of over $146 million. The Texas.Eas- tern group paid $143 million for the lines, almost the full cost. Since the original purchase of the lines from the Gulf of Mexico to New Jersey other lines have been laid to the northeast part of the U. S. Today the company has 9,000 miles of lines. The movie showed how a line is laid through swamplands in south Louisiana. The pumping station at Bodcaw is part of an enormous system of stations, valves, pipeline, State Bank No. 81-518 REPORT OF CONDITION OF Bank Of Blevins IN THE STATE OF ARKANSAS AT THE CLOSE OF BUSINESS ON APRIL 18, 19G8.

Program Chairman Bill Gun* ter introduced Mrs, Draper^ Bob McCoole of Sears was the guest of Jim Argo, ARMY PAYS from Page One Worcester, Mass., and General Motors' Hydramatlc Division at Ypsilanti, Mich, Each firm received a two* year contract calling for prod* uction of 60,000 rifles the first year and 180,000 the second. Harrington & Richardson will receive $15 million the first year for a unit cost to the government of $250 a rifle. The second year the firm will receive $27 million or $150 a rifle. Government costs under the contract awarded to General Motors are higher; $316 a rifle the first year, $200 the second. The difference between the two contracts brought swift challenge from Sen. George S. McGovern, D-S.D., who told the Senate the awards serve "as a painful question of the Pentagon's ability to handle the taxpayers' money wisely." The Army responded by pointing to differences in wage scales between Detroit and Worcester. Labor Department figures show the average manufacturing em- ploye In Detroit in February 1968 received $167.74 a week. The figure for Worcester was $118.89. GM and Harrington & Richardson were among four firms with which the Army negotiated after it bought the manufacturing rights for $4.5 million from Colt. The prices include the expenses of tooling up to produce a new product. BUSY WEEK from Page One an all-day event for Conifer Council Cadettes entitled "The Uin Popularity." About 200 Cadettes attended the function, where Miss Vonda Kay Brown, Arkansas State Froestry Queen, told the girls how to develop an attractive personality. Mrs. Floyd Taylor of Texarkana had a personality clinic, telling the girls what exercises to take, how to sit, stand, and walk, what to eat, etc. After lunch in the college cafeteria, the cadettes were taken on a , walking tour of the campus. During the afternoon rsession,"' Miss Betty Ruth Honeycutt represented the local unit in the "Miss Model Cadette Contest." One of the most enjoyable events was the Panel Discussion presented by 7 college boys entitled "What Boys LiJce About Girls." The boys were most Informative and candid, and the girls learned a lot. The day's activities were concluded by attending a session of a rock-and-roll group, "The Arrangements," in the college gymnasium. Mrs. Howard Jackson, leader, and Mr. and Mrs. J. T. Honeycutt chaperoned the event. FATHER OF From Page 1 ting trimmer haircuts. You can't call a girl an old maid anymore until she buys her second cat. Every time I sit next to a pompous, dressed up, mid- dleaged dame at a public banquet, I hope against hope to see her pick up a piece of fried chicken in her long white gloves and unconcernedly gnaw it to the bone. That's my secret idea of class - utter class. I would fall in love with her on the spot. As long as Ed Sullivan doesn't learn to play the xylophone, the television industry would still seem to have a bright future, The first thing a big executive does when his doctor puts him on a diet and the water wagon is to cut down the entertainment allowances of every other member of the firm. Even on the rainiest day, everybody has a smile for a girl who comes down the street carrying a bright red umbrella. Nothing quite matches the surprise that sweeps the face of a Texan when he first tastes barbecued ribs in a Chinese restaurant — and finds how good these delicacies really can be. But he'd rather have an oil well go dry than admit they are better than the ones he gets back home on the range. An American begins to grow up the day he realizes that some of the things he gets back when he sends away a box top and a quarter aren't worth the box top, let alone the money.

MR., MRS, JIM From (Page 1) for governor in Arkansas, The Johnsons, flanked by a small group of supporters, came to the Capitol with two cardboard boxes filled with petitions to place former Alabama Gov. George Wallace on the ballot as a third party presidential candidate, The Johnsons completed the Wallace filing first and then Jim went to he Democratic party officials to file his party loyalty pledge and as a candidate for the Senate. After Johnson completed his filing, he received an emergency telephone call in the secretary of state's office, It was that Vir- President, will give brief reports only moments later on the County Project and State ginia filed for governor, bring' Spring Board Meeting, **..{, ~^« B . ing another round of shouts County program" committee in- from their supporters.

Johnson is a self-avowed segregationist who has spent the last two months pushing the campaign in Arkansas to get Wallace on the ballot. J. P.

(AP) - A fire in Temescal Canyon spread so close to a nudist camp that many of the 200 sun bathers fled its path. Several male nudists took up stations beside the fire-fighting crews numbering 300 or more. "Some of those guys were helping fight the fire in their shoes, and nothing else," a spokesman for the state Division of Forestry said. PHOENIX, Ariz. (AP) - Arizona's decision to remain on standard time this summer has caused one major addition to the format of a Phoenix television news broadcast— the soap opera report. Officials at KTAR-TV say the switch to daylight time in most of the nation led to a rejuggling of schedules, eliminating the NBC serial "Days of our Lives" from the station's lineup. To provide some relief for the loyal fans who called to protest, the station expanded its evening news to include a report of the day's events on "Days of our Lives." MIAMI, Fla. (AP) - Helen Caspan, a typist for the city liired last October with, a warning to lose weight, has been fired after gaining 14 pounds for a total of 230. The 33-year-old woman, 5- feet-10, said she tried pills and dieting but became so nervous from the pills and so hungry from the diets that she ate more tlian before and gained weight. The city said her health was in jeopardy, nuking her too much of a risk for the city's health plan insurance to cover. CALL(PR7-2598) WE WILL INSTALL FAMOUS QUALITY There had been some speculation that since they were pushing a third-party effort that any attempt at filing as Democrats would be blocked. However, Arkansas Democratic party rules only require Democrats to pledge support of party candidates within the state. The maneuver came as a surprise to almost everyone despite the fact that Johnson hinted last summer that running for governor might not be such a bad idea. Sources close to Johnson told The Associated Press Monday that he definitely wanted to run against Fulbright but that his staunch supporters were demanding that he get someone in the race for governor, Mr.Math said he was grateful to the many persons who had been interested in his running for the senate, "However, I will not be a candidate for any political office," he said in a statement, He said that during the past year he had made talks on the dangers of communism to the United States and the free world and had supported the U,S, effort in Vietnam and Southeast Asia because this nation has a vital interest at stake, "I have stated that I have no desire to re-enter politics or to run for the U,S, Senate," he said, "I have spoken out as a concerned citizen and shall continue to do so" No Cigarettes to Minors UTTLJE ROCK (AP)~Theat* torney general's office said Monday that cigarettes can not legally be sold to a person under 18 years of age. Morris Rickel, principal of the state School for the Deaf, asked for the opinion.
