The durable Mr Burnette has worn well, despite the day to day wear-and-tear any movie comedian must expect but, the hat— that droopy, old veteran i.f a thousand film escapades, is fast sagging into a shapeless blob of felt. * * * While Smiley could grow new hide, to replace skin left here and there all over the backlot in the interests of laughs? the battered bonnet just sort of disintegrated.

Not infrequently, these mishaps befell the ancient hat while the Burnette skull was parked inside! * * * It was a "good" hat. a lucky hat! It started out on that first, eventful. Western trek with Smiley and he was loath to replace the old sky-piece. He'd keep adding supports. A stitch of thread, a pin, a paper-clip or staple. Anything that would hold it together through another picture. In fact, more than once, a bit of scotch-tape held wandering sections in some semblance of shape until more permanent repairs could be effected. * * * It is a question whether Smiley Burnette absorbed a little character from this venerable hat or whether the soft, old, felt acquired some of the Burnette personality. Certain it is that, like the friendship of Smiley, it wore well, and comfortably. The aura of rugged simplicity could have emanated from either—or both. With a wilted brim propped skyward at the prow, in an "off-the-face" tilt, there was more than a suggestion of open- faced honesty and naivete. * * * More than two decades ol moppets came - to know "the funny cowboy with the turned up hat brim." In his personal appearances, thousands of kiddies tried on this 10-gallon "sieve." Thousands more wore it while their pictures were taken on the Burnette knee. Ice cream and lollipop stains mingled with prop "blood" and the Fuller's Earth of countless movie "deserts." f * # Still possessing a rakish air in its dog-eared, tattered, old-age, Smiley's hat has been withdrawn from the rigors of a movie workday. At last reports, Smiley's head had seconded the motion! Together, they'll play about 15 weeks of fair dates each' year while the Burnettes leisurely tour the country. — And, if Smiley doesn't always tip his hat while in costume,—it's not a lack of courtesy! Who would want to watch an old friend fall apart at the seams right before his very eyes? * * . * Disneyland went slightly "old hat" on Easter Sunday as Easter bonnets of half a century ago were proudly worn in Walt Disney's magic kingdom. In an Easter parade right'put of.Yester- day, hoop skirts, horseless carriages and finery of'another cnr made their appearance on, "Main Street, U.S.A." Most of the costumes • were from the famous, and very valuable, collection of Mrs Helen Larson in Whittier, Calif. Historic garments, loaned to Disneyland for the occasion, included such priceless items as a satin dress once owned by Mrs Rutherford Hayes, wife of President Hayes. * » * Automobile enthusiasts also enjoyed a gala day as Ihey thrilled to a parade of ancient "horseless carriages" in which all makes and models were displayed, dat- Roger Anderson ALGONA,., Sunday - 3 Days ' COLUMBIA HCTU«tS PH4HU : VICTOR MATURE GUY MADISON ROBERT PRESTON Their great d«t4s won us th« fo«4 to a mighty continent! »„.,-.« C010 '" JAMES !!»[• ANNE BANCROFT 2nd HIT!
