12 Golesburo Reoister-Moil, GolesbufQ. Celebrities Fight Harder For Victory Fridov, Oct 4, 1963 are By HAL BOYLE NEW YORK (AP)-What Celebrities really like? After interviewing more than 1,000 famous folk in the last 20 years, I've concluded they differ from ordinary people chiefly In having a greater single-mindedness of purpose. When they want something they fight harder to get it, they don't let other interests divert them from their goal. They are gifted or cursed—depending on how you see it—with a greater self-awareness than most of us show. They are something like the reflection in a Coney Island mirror •-diminished here, greatly exaggerated there. Celebrities are alike in one respect. All dread anonymity and fear failure. Success in time becomes a monkey on their back It is a narcotic which they re quire often in ever larger doses That is why big league per formers—whether they are base ball players, business tycoons crooners, or theater, film or tele 5?

Insist on having your auto glass insurance claims serviced by local people. vision idols — usually have a claque around them. They sur round themselves with sycophants because they need constantly to be assured, "You're the greatest, pal." All celebrities are actors, whether they are consciously so or not. Mad they gone on the stage, both Gen. George S. Patton and Gen. Douglas MacArthur undoubtedly would have wound up as matinee idols. So would Gen. Charles de Gaulle, Sen. Everett Dirksen of Illinois, and probably President John F. Kennedy. All had or have a built-in sense of drama and a magical sense of timing. Not all celebrities are interesting up close. Academic celebrities tend to be boring, famous doctors pontifical, actresses shallow. Scientists are jealous, but hell hath no rivalry like two longhaired poets fighting for attention at the same cocktail party. As for opera stars, each is sure all the others sing like frogs with the asthma. Most novelists praise no other novelist until he is safely dead. Some celebrities are unbelievably generous, others laughably stingy. If Frank Sinatra likes you he may send you a limousine, hand-wrapped, for Christmas. On the other hand, another veteran star has been known to try to get his hotel to cut down the price of his breakfast because he ate only one of the two muffins room service sent up on a tray. The most puckish celebrity I ever met was actor Bob Mitchem, who thinks it's all pretty zany; the most pathetic—Marilyn Monroe, who was destroyed by applause. But the celebrity I admire most is Gen. Omar Nelson Bradley, a down-to-earth man who never let fame or fortune turn his head— and would blush to be called a celebrity at all.

No prescription '64 Jet-smooth Luxury CHEVROLET Besides looks, ride and power-what's so special about it? (it's so reasonably priced) Kind of leaves the high-priced cars some explaining to do, wouldn't you say? Long and luxurious—with a clean fresh-christened look that almost makes you feel somebody should be breaking a champagne bottle over its prow. Richer roomy interiors with subtle new blendings of colors and fabrics. Like the ultra-soft vinyl upholstery in the new Impala Super Sport Series. And the foam-cushioned front and rear seats and door-to-door carpeting, now standard in all models including the Biscaynes. A choice of seven engines, no less, with output all the way up j (say when!) to 425 hp,* CHEVROLET And a choice of four quiet, smooth transmissions—ranging from automatic* to 4-speed Synchro-Mesh*—to go with them. And with it all, the opulent feel of that Jet-smooth ride—something some of the expensive makes would dearly love to claim for themselves. Matter of fact, the most important and noticeable difference between this beautiful new 1964 Chevrolet and the high-priced f cars is the price itself.
