ThufiJoy, July 20, 1961 I ITAt, HOM, ARKANSAS Beautiful Figures of Arkansas HBy BOB HARING Associated pr e s s staff Writer • ""-If the new Miss Arkansas, Frances Anderson of Pine Bluff, follows the trend, she'll reign for a year, then marry and become a housewife. That's the story of most of the 10 past Miss Arkansas winners. Only last year's titlist, Claud- cttc Smith of Star Cily, isn't married. The rules prevent a Miss Arkansas from marrying until she f-rrcnders her title, which Claud- elf c did Sunday. Most of the past queens have married Arkansas boys and nine of them still live in Arkansas. Only Barbara Banks of Conway, the 1950 winner, turned to show LATE SHOW SATURDAY "*i OPERATION EICHMANN Saenger THEATRE business as a career. And she gave it up when she married Frank Selvy, Kentucky basketball great who's now a professional player. Frances is the first blonde Miss \rkansas since 1948. She's also 'probably the tallesl ever sclccled at 5-feel 10 inches. Mrs. Selvy has blondish brown hair, but most of the Arkansas queens have been brunettes. There was a time in Ihe mid 1940s, though ,when blondes won three out of four titles. Leslie Hampton of Lake Village (now Mrs. Clyde Scott of Lit lie Rock) in 1045, Pam Kemp of Little Rock (now -Mrs. Bill Warren of Magnolia; in 1947 and Van Louis McDaniel of Forrest (nosv Mrs. William Tucker of Forrest City) in 1948 were the blonde trio. That skein was interrupted in l'J4G by Becky McCall of Blyth-c ville (now Mrs. Bruce Rcdwinc of Houston, Tex.), who went farther in the Miss America contest than any other Arkansan to date. She was first runncrup. The 19GO queen, Suzy Jackson of North Little Rock, now is Mrs. Graham Thompson and the 1!)50 winner, Sally Miller of Pine Bluff, now is Mrs. John A. Perdue III of Pine Bluff. There was no 195!) litle due to a change in the numbering. Here's a rundown on the other Misses Arkansas: 1957 — Suzanne Scudder of Hot | Springs, now Mrs. David Stubblefield of Little Rock; 1956 — Mrs. Sclvy, now of Los Angeles: 1955— Sherry Bowers of Helena, now Mrs. Nicholas Fart-oil Roberts ot Berkeley, Calif.; 1954 — Sarah Graves Martin of Little Rock, now Mrs. Harold Meks of Pittsburgh, Pa.; 1953—Joyce Reed of Hot Springs, now Mrs. Jack Newsum of New York. 1952 — Bonnie Nicksic. of Hot Springs, now Mrs. Robcr (Branch of Los Angeles; 1951 — Charlotte Simmon of Little Rock, now Mrs. Gene Eberle Jr. .of Little Rock; 1950—Mary Lois Jennings of Hot Springs, now Mrs. Bill Beck of New York City; 194!) — Barbara Brothers of Little Rock, now Mrs. Brewstcr Harrington of Palestine, Tex. 1948—Mrs. Tucker: 1947— Mrs. Warren: 194G — Mrs. Rcdwinc; 1945—Mrs. Scott: 1944, Mineola Graham of Brinkley. now Mrs. Fritz Gunlher of San Antonio, Tex.

The story of Wilmer McLean and hi.s flight from the Civil War began on Ihc afternoon of July III, mil, in his farmhouse nol far from Manassas Junction, Va. Me was entertaining Confederate Gen. Pierre G. T. Beauregard when the big guns of the North and South began duelling across a lilllc stream called Bull Kun. "A comical effect of this artillery fight," wrote Beaurcgard wilh a literary chuckle, "was the destruction of Ihe dinner of myself and staff by a federal shell thai fell into tlie fireplace." • Three days later on July 21 mo battle of Bull Run the first major engagement of the war, erupted not a minic ball's throw from his farm. McLean threw in the sponge. Ho packed up his family and retired to a quiet corner of southern Virginia where he wa.s sure the war would never find him. His new home: Appomaltox Court House. There he lived quietly and presumably prospered until the i morning of April i), lf!(>r>, when he met a group of gray-clad horsemen riding down the Appo- malox Road. They were seeking, they told him, a well-appointed house where their distinguished companion, Gen. Robert K. Lee, ighl hold a quid conversation with another general, Ulysses S, Grant. McLean offered Ihe best house in town, hi.s own. Thus it turned out lhal the man who entertained a Confederate general in hi.s borne on the first great, battlefield of the Civil War played hosl to another in Ihe fina episode of the war when Lee .surrendered lo Grant. The war was over but, wroU an eye witness, McLean's "rea trial did nothing until the de parlure of the chief actors in the .surrender. "The relic hunters chargct down upon the manor-house and made various at tempts lo jump Mr. McLean's claims lo his own furniture. "Bargains were struck at once for all the articles in Ihe rom. and it is even said that some memenloes were carried off for which no coin of the realm was ever exchanged." After Ihc war, his home denuded of furnishings. McLean tried i lo recoup his lorlunes by peddling pictures of hi.s lion.se. Hut. when the excitement had died down, there wasn't much market for them. Creditors auctioned oil' hi.s property in IDijl) and McLean wan| dcred away lo try his hand some- i place else, a beaten man who just couldn't get away from a war jlbal slarleil al hi.s doorstep and ended in his parlor.
