Thli question has been posed by Lester Dill, owner of the Meramec (Javerna at Stanton, Mo. 'iDllI recently asked the reconstruction Finance Corp. for ft million-dollar loan to transform nil i6«mlle.ieng cave Into an Oeark atdtf refuge, H« also asked a group of writers to nominate 10 Americans who, In lite event of national disaster, should be given top priority as tenfflils of his modern underground Noab'l ark. 1 ended up by picking two lists. Dill ihlmself Isn't on either—as whd, 'forced to live in a cave, Want* to be dunned by a landlord? 1 bypassed all politicians, too, to gel rid of the tax problem, once and for all. My first list Is purely selfish: 1. My wife, Frances. 2. Me. 3. Gypsy Rose Lee. 4. Thoma* Hart Benton, the Artist. 5. Tallulah Bankhead. fi. Burl Ivcs, the guitar-twanging folk signer. 7. A good bartender. 8. A psychiatrist. 9. Oswald Jacoby, the card expert. 10. Any 2-year-old child. With a group like this you could have fun Indefinitely, Jacoby would teach me how to play canasta, I'd learn to dance with Miss Lee, and Miss Bankhead and Benton are two of Hie most entertaining talkers alive. The reason for Including the bartender and psychiatrist is simple. One would listen to my troubles and the other would explain my nightmares. Why the child? Well/ when everybody got bored, they could just watch the child play—and feel better. My second list of Americans has six animals and four humans on it: A cow and a bull, a married team of horses, two ha'pplly wedded dogs, a young minister and his wife, and a young farmboy and his best girl, { » These 10 could foUjid a new civilization,, and whether it would turn out better or worse than the one it. replaced no one can tell, Open Friday Eve 'til 9 P.M.
