Accidents played riuite a part in the discovery of South America. First Columbus was trying to reach the riches of Ihe east by sailing westward around the globe. He thought he had located the Indies when he saw Cuba and H a i t i so he called the inhabitants Indians. And his followers moved down to South America. The Turks caplured Constantinople and cut off the easy sea lanes to the wealth of the Orient so the I'ortugcsc* sent a sailing ship to map a route around Africa. Strong winds pushed the vessel out of its path and Brazil was discovered.

A drowning pcivon struggles hard to lose his life. But how easy it is to relax and live." Favors Happy Rolen Easy-going Doris carries her beliefs to her relations with the studio. She was against playing in "Alexander, The Big Leaguer," because she had to play a sob- sister rnle. "I've always thought I should play happy roles, and I told Ihe studio so," she explained. "But when they remained firm and my, refusal would menu a suspension and lots of unhappincss on both sides. I agreed to do the part." Doris doesn't drink nr smoke.
