Friday, 1 J, I«SI Ozark Playgrounds Entice Vacationist While you're hrrp for the Ar- ! kansas Press Association conven- · tion, Mr. Newspaper Man, stay · while and take a look at the Play- , grounds of the Ozark*, where the i latch string to gracious livinj is i always out and inviting you. j Embracing some 2fi,000 square, miles nf the nation's most p i r - : turesque mountains, lakes and . streams, this "land of a million smiles" welcomes you. The Play- ' grounds are an excellent plaro tft jUFi "soak up" the peace and beauty of the country, hut there's always something interesting to do and plenty of elbow room to en- ] joy it. Here's your information on this vacation area in the center of the nation, embracing adjoining sections of three friendly states--Arkansas, Oklahoma and Missouri-In "the words of the O.ark Playgrounds Association: , The Playgrounds of the Ozarks are a delightful mixture of an historic past and a progressive present. Modern resort accomoda- tions and excellent facilities blend happily with the charm of a by- gope day and the ever-present friendliness of the people. When you first set foot in the Playgrounds, put down your cares and look about you. Look out over the rolling hills to the. mountains that dominate the distance. Watch for a moment the cloud-shadows race across their mottled slopes. These are not towering heights to challenge the power of your automobile but rather a backdrop to the scenery, colored in greens that melt into rich riot of color in the fall. These tree-covered hills, threaded with cool streams, highlighted with placid lakes and softened with a blue , haze that falls at dusk--may well be one of your fondest Ozark vacation memories. .These Ozarks rise from the western lowland in a succession of increasingly rugged' ridges that pain altitude until finally across the entire southern section of the Playgrounds. the- gain distinction as a range known as the Boston Mountains--highest in the Ozarks. ·Unless you're content to laze in your quarters, enjoying every comfort at your elbow (a rather tempting idea, at t h a t ) you'll want 1o-do a bit of exploring. Famous views are marked with roadside signs and drive-outs are provided. A few of the better known are Inspiration Point on the Ozark Skyway leading into F.ureka Springs; the overhanging bluffs on the Prize drive into Noel, Mo.; Lookout Point on Lake Tnneycomo: Grand Lake from atop Sailboat Bridge; vistas from atop White Rock Mountain, atop Mt. Gayler. overlooking Buffalo River, or the blue wat*r of I^ake Norfolk. You'll discover many, many more. Tf it's boats you want and sparkling water on which to enioy them, the Playgrounds are the place for you. For a real thrill try boating along the curving slashes of 'the Playgrounds lake shores. Whether you like leisurely row- j ing, rooming speedboats, sails. cracking in the fresh breezt or J running a fart stream, you'll find j boating at its best. Fast cruisers j churn the waters of the lakes, j outboard motorboats race arro- i gantly by while the tips of white j sails dot the blue waters. If you are a fisherman, we're sure you have heard about our flnat trips on the big streams. Or you can sit lazily on the bank and | just "pole fish." and if you like i to fly-fish, there's fast water for small mouth bass or trout. You can cast or troll from a boat for | large mouth bass or giant channel \ catfish; or just "park" your boat ; over a crappie hole. The best of . facilities and accomodations are made available. ; "Few places are so free from restrictions. Here in this vast sun( ny land you can relax and enjoy | the fine climate, the wealth of scenery and the variety of interests. It is a carefree country of "do ns you please, go as you please." , So plan to stay awhile, and when you leave us it will be a case of "au revoir" for the Playgrounds have a way of calling you back, j * St. George is believed to be the j development of the ancient Per- | seus mylh. . , Prices Up Some On Chickens j thrnrd p.irarnle, frrsh corn ; crlery prirrs. i W;itprmplon \va«, hprnnnnjr im plentiful. nd It IP nHipved that Lh« tarthV Wh^n a rubic foot of natural gas rontjnpots a(i». in pffprt. inlands nf hurns rompMHv, Jt produces i t r l n t i v f i v hyht rork flnaM* on ruhir rnnt nf rarhon dlrxJde and ho/nirr suhst.-inrp* hclnw. two ruhir (c?i of watpr v*rxr.
