By MARTHA PATTILLO For Texans an event of great Interest would be the International Agricultural Show, held in Paris in March. The event Is truly international in that it includes exhibits from Ireland, Belgium, Italy, Holland, Germany, Austria and Great Britain, as well as Prance. In effect, It is an agricultural showcase for the Common Market (the agricultural aspects of which are among the most important). The importance of the Show is underlined by the fact that the opening ceremonies were attended by President Pompidou and the closing was highlighted by a concert by the band of the "Garde Republicaine"-the official Presidential guard, in their Napoleanic uniforms and plumed gold helmets. Also, most of the hotels in Paris are full during the week of the Show. It is held at the "Palais des Expositions"--a sort of very large fairgrounds with a number of large exhibit buildings, on the outskirts of Paris. Each day of the Show a different kind of animal competition was held, to choose the prize animals from each group represented: horses, cows, sheep, pigs and goats. Of particular interest were the beautiful white Charolais cattle, originally from the Burgundy region of France, which have become famous the world over for their superb meat. Also the Texan would recognize the Jersey, so well known for its large milk Duplicate Bridge By LILLIAN JORDAN Monday night a Howell movement was played in the Coronado Inn.

FILM ON DEPRESSION HOLLYWOOD, Calif. (AP) — "Emperor of the North," a dramatic saga of the great depression days of the 1930s, will be a 20th Century-Fox film for release next summer. Lee Marvin will have the title role with Kenneth Hyman producing and Robert Aldrich directing. Filming will begin in June. DO-IT-YOURSELF Bit of Paving Improves Yard By MR. FIX Everyone likes a lush, green lawn but a little additional paving in one form or another can add to the versatility of your yard and add some needed living space. This can be in the form of a path, a patio, a place to park your car off of the driveway. Paving need not be in conventional concrete, although it can be. You can use old broken paving, bricks that are new or used, stone, gravel or wood. Use your imagination. For p a t i o s and parking areas you will want to use concrete or some form of stone to make it an all- weather form of paving. Outline the area with wood strips after excavating. If drainage is good, concrete can be laid directly on the earth after excavating to the desired level. But if drainage is a problem, provide up to six inches of gravel first. Several inches is good in any event. The base, no matter what it is, should be well packed. A path through your lawn can be made with pieces of paving rather than in one long length. Broken paving will do. So will small amounts of concrete that you can pre-cast into slabs first. Excavate for each piece of paving, going down to a depth that will keep it a little '^ lower than the surrounding grass. This permits easy mowing. Mortarless patios are pop, ular because they can be i'ii,»Udp.njfHB an amateur and ^ ^JmHr?* period of time. FOR PATIOS- HAVE A '"32^ GOOD SAND BASE BRUSH SAND BETWEEN CRACKS SET PAVING MATERIAL FIRMLY WET AREA AND WORK IN MORE SAND-- : .;..;...^.^i^ .• ...._».• 1/iLla.... .AlV* Once you have poured enough concrete for a large slab, you must work quickly. Patio blocks and used bricks are both popular materials. Excavate to a depth equal to the thickness of the material plus two or three inches for a bed of sand. The sand base provides both foundation and drainage. Install a wood form around the excavated area to hold the material in place. The wood should be treated with a preservative first. Pour in the sand and rake it level. Wet it and pack it. Place the bricks, setting each one firmly and checking with a level frequently. When all are in, sweep sand over the surface and sweep off the excess. Wet the area production. It should be noted that the Hereford was not represented; perhaps this could serve as a hint to an enterprising Texan who would like to expand his business to Europe! Among the horses of particular interest were the Percherons-the extremely large, solid work horses used up until the last century for heavy farm labor. Although they are not found very widely now, there were some fine specimens to be seen at the Show-complete with their tails braided with green ribbon and pieces of straw. Mention should be made, too, of the Camargue horses: small, white, with a long mane and tail, very resistant, and which require only small amounts of food and water. The Camargue is a region in the south of France on the Mediterranean. Cattle are raised in the marshes and it is also there that most of the rice produced in France is grown. This region is inhabited by the gypsies and the gypsy men herd the cattle on the beautiful Camargue ponies-and are therefore known as the "cowboys" of France. After taking a look at all of the animals, the crowds went into the area where the agricultural machinery was being displayed. A band in great prominence was Massey-Ferguson! Afterwards, they wandered into the building where the food stands, representing all of the regions of France and several of the other participating countries, were located. If the rest of the show were a rancher and farmer's dream, this section was surely the gourmet's! Tasting began with an andouillete (a kind of link sausage) from Auvergne (a region in central France). This was accompanied by a glass of white wine from the Chardonnay vineyards in Burgundy (also central- France). Next was a sandwich of Pate' diver paste) from the Perigord (southwest France). Immediately following-and superior--wa8 foie gras (fattened liver) from the same area. Drunk with this was a glass of red wine from near Macon, another town in Burgundy. A sweet touch was provided by a crepe (a kind of very light pancake) flavored with Calvados (an apple Jack brandy from Normandy). This was accompanied with a glass of hard apple cider, another Normandy product. Next sampled was a glass of armagnac (a relative to cognac) with some prunes, both from Toulouse. A bit later was a glass of "eau de vie de noix"--a delicious walnut-flavored liqueur from the Quercy area of France (in the south of the central mountain range). As the French overseas territories were also represented, a "planter's punch" made from rum from Guadeloupe, an island in the French Antilles, could not be passed up as a final taste treat. It should be noted that a particularly frequented stand was an English one featuring hot baked potatoes--a preparation practically unknown in France. At this point, if the spectators were tired of eating and viewing, they could see a performance of "Holiday on Ice" (complete with the English title familiar to the Texas fair-goer!) in another nearby building. Not All Black Only the heartwood (inner wood) of the ebony tree is dark-colored. The sapwood (outer wood) is white, grayish-white or pinkish-white. Worry Clinic ByGEORGE W.

CASE U-507: Molly S.,«|e 19, was one of my coed psychology students at Northwestern University. -Dr. Crane," she said, "for several nights I have had the same type of illogical dream. "I seem to be strolling in the country during Spring. "As I cross a beautiful green pasture field, I see a large bull looking at me. "He is so sleek and muscular he is truly a beautiful animal. "But when he starts toward me, I become frightened. "So I start running toward a tree that stands in the middle of the green field. "Just before I reach it, however, this bull catches up and attacks me, "I can feel a horn penetrating my left side, near my heart. "But I am surprised that it doesn't hurt. In fact, it is stimulating. "And I seem to suffer no real harm afterwards! "Isn't this a silly dream, Dr. Crane?" Dream Interpretation It isn't a silly dream to a psychiatrist! For it is a disguised erotic dream, whose cruder sex connotations are camouflaged neatly. "Molly," I began, "tell me more specifically what the bull looked like." She finally laughed and said his eyes reminded her of a certain young man she had met at a party a few weeks earlier. He was a handsome policeman who danced with her a couple of times. She admitted to having felt some palpitation of the heart as he held her close during their dancing. You readers may anticipate the usual psychiatrist's mentk' that in slang terminology a policeman is often called a "bull." When I questioned Molly on this point, she admitted that she had heard such a term used, but had forgotten it till I raised the query. But her subconscious mind hadn't forgotten, so it was employing the handsome 4-legged bovine bull as a deft form of sexual symbolism. It is conventional for crude erotic situations to be disguised to avoid censure by our conscience. Even in our waking state, we indulge in similar symbolism by saying a person "Joined his Forebears" or "Went West" or "Journeyed into the Setting Sun," when we wish to avoid the brutal term "Died." Spring, too, is popularly regarded as a romantic season of the year. And that beautiful "green pasture" might even be a carry-over from the 23rd Psalm, wherein David says: "He maketh me to lie down in green pastures." So don't sneer at Dr. Sigmund Freud's dream analysis, for he was very shrewd in listing the many dream symbols of the female sex, such as a shoe, water, sleeve, sealed envelope, etc. (Always write to Dr. Crane, Hopkins Bldg., Mellott, Indiana 47951 enclosing a long, stamped, addressed envelope and 25 cents to cover typing and printing costs when you send for one of his booklets.)
