" Phoebe's Extended Pav ILLINOIS: where the time machine broke down "Early last summer my wife and I set out to see what hart happened, since its prosperous days in the last century, to that area of Southern Illinois carved by the Wabash, the Ohio and Mississippi Rivers." That's how ,1. R. Humphreys begins his story, "The Sleepy South of Illinois," in the September issue of Holiday Magazine. What these perceptive visitors found was enjoyable and at times unsettling, For there is a strong sense of American history still alive in this area, as though it stopped changing while the rest of the world moved on. The old towns—like Cairo, Belleville, Carlyle, Shawneetown, Waterloo, Columbia—bear the look that the early settlers gave them. Some seemed cared for and cared about, Others have faded. But everything — towns, farms, country roads, old hotels and deep, slow-moving rivers —everything seems curiously touched by the rough but proud times past. You'll read how J. R, Humphreys sums up his impression of Southern Illinois in September Holiday: "We strolled past the old houses and, in the dark, I must say we weren't yet sure we were back In our own time . . .
