PAGE TWELVE BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS MONDAY, SEPT. 14, 1955 Br BICHARD KLEINER NEA SUlf Correspondent NEW YORK — (NEA) — Some lingers go through life without ever having any one particular song identified with them. And then there's Jane Proman, who admits that since "I Believe" came along, she's a two-theme-song woman. * "Of course," she says, "With a Bong In My Heart' will always be my real theme. It's so peculiarly associated with me. But 'I Believe' has come to be Identified with me, too." It should be. She introduced it on her TV program. It was written by the show's writers on order. Miss Froman and producer Irving Mansfield wanted an I-Believish type song for last year's Christmas program. So the writers sat down. Coming up, one hit. Miss Proman says she thinks "I Believe" will become a standard. A song that lives for years. Incidentally, she says she was glad that her Capitol record of "I Believe" wasn't the tune's big smash seller. "This way," she explains. "I can sing it anytime, and people aren't tired of hearing me do it. And the record will keep on selling for years." The charming songstress, who lives in a charming East Side home with a charming dachshund named Till Eulenspiegel, confesses that she's very happy that ballads are coming back in vogue. "We still seem to be in a novelty period," she says, "and basically I'm a ballad gal. Some novelties I can sing, some I can't. Take 'Don't Let the Stars Get in Your Eyes' " — she began to sing it — "you see, it's not for me. But now ballads seem to be coming back. "I do hope so." • * THE POPULAR SIDE: Billy Eckstine and the Metronome All- Stars do a two-sided version of "St. Louis Blues" on MGM. Eckstine stags it both straight and I Bless Us All"?

(Advertisement) Why Take Less... Than The Best When You Get Better Cleaning at Lower Prices! the price of the unpriceable Water is beyond price, yet at intervals you get a water hill. Water is free, yet someone has fixed a dollar and cents value on nature's unpriceable gift. By what right? Go out into (he country and you'll find the farmer getting all the water he wants, merely for the effort of digging a well and working a pump. He gets no water bill. Go up into the unspoiled mountains, dip your cup In a bubbling spring and drink your fill. Bring home a few barrels full. No one will impose any charge for what you take. Go down lo the nearest river hank. Fill as many buckets as you can haul away. You won't have to pay a cent for their contents. Or the next time it rains, put out tubs and basins. Or do as they do in Bermuda: make your entire roof a collecting system leading to a cistern. No meter will register payments due. But ask the farmer what it cost to dig his well and how much energy is consumed in operating if. Kigure the expense of your trip to the mountains, not forgetting the price of the barrels. Compute the value of the time consumed in hauling river water, adding the doctor's bills in case you fail to boil it before using. And campare the amount of wafer you obtain with the cost of installing and maintaing a Bermuda-type roof collection system Wafer is free to all. But it isn't always available where people want it in a condition safe for them to use. It's the water works' job fo fake over the task of collecting water, transporting water and making sure that the water delivered is safe for human consumption and suitable for human use, 24 hours a day, 3G5 days a year. And that's what you pay for when you pay your water bill. Blytheville Water Co. "Water Is Your Cheapest Commodity" ON CLEANING Cash & Carry - at Hudson's « >.
