VI NM1HWBT AMUNSAS TMHS. AriM 1, IM2 Boyle's Column By HAL BO VLB Ntw York-W-Girls, our success formula for today is simple: "Stay in there and keep pitching those curves." Tht symbol ot this vibrant maxim Is Marilyn Monroe, who has proved an ambitious girl doesn't have to come to the big city to get ahead. She can do it in her own home town. At nine Marilyn earned five cants a month spending money setting tables in a Los Angeles orphans home. At 24, in the nearby film studio where she now has to wait on nobody, she draws down $752 a week. In Hollywood, where she is rated as one of the most sultry discoveries since the late Jean Harlow, this naturally is considered peonage. "They keep saying that one of these days they'll tear up my contract and Hvrite me a better one," she said. "And one ot these days 1 wish they would.". "They keep me so busy," she complained, "sorry I'm so late." She turned her wide blue eyes on me, and I had an uneasy feeling they would melt and drip on the table. Then she sat down be- sidt me--real close--and I had an uneasy feeling that maybe I'd melt. "I was having my hair fixed in my hotel room, and nil I had on was a towel," she iiid, and added carefully--"a small towel. Some reporters were on the other side of the door asking me questions. And such questions! They wanted to know if I knew how many stomachs a cow had, and they seemed real surprised when 1 gave them the right answer- four. "Then they asked me if I knew what heat was? I told them fure-- Heat is something that is generated. Isn't that right?" Marilyn, who recently was in a film called "Monkey Business," rather enjoys people who take her for a real life dumb blonde. She is dumb the same way Mae West is. . At the moment she is rather amazed by the public interest in her disclosure that she never wears brassieres, girdles or any other form of underclothing, and sleeps raw except for a nightly -dab of perfume. "It's more comfortable not to wear underclothing, and I don't likt to ftel wrinkles," she said. "What's so unusual about that? You must know a lot of girls who do the same thing--and who put on perfume before going to sleep." (Editors Note: If Boyle does, he never mentioned it before.) Miss Monroe feels most American women should follow her example and emancipate themselves from bras, corsets, and girdles. "But, first, some of them ought to exercise," she said, "in order to be ... to be ... you know . . . firm. I exercise with weights myself. I lie on my back with my arms overhead and lift the weights 15 times. It is a kind of pull -against gravity, I guess, I used to walk a lot, too. Walking up a steep hill is the best thing for a woman's legs." But what about the subject on the minds ot 12 million girls this leap year--how to catch a husband? Marilyn, whose own marriage at 16 didn't last, gave two simple rules: "1. A girl should follow her instincts. "2. That will about take care of things,' as instincts are important." Ai for sex, a current events topic most movie stars and base- ft GALLON Vmilli Ice Cream 63c trtt. Udtar Mai* ball players usually have opinions on, Miss Monroe said: "Truthfully, I've never given it a second thought." And she was gone before I thought of asking her what her first thought was. Naval Reserve Unit Again Accepting Enlistments Vacancies in Fayetteville's Naval Reserve training unit, Organised Electronics Company 8-8, will be filled by recruiting beginning tomorrow, Lt. Peter G. Estes, commanding officer, announced today. The company fell below its authorized strength with. University commencement and the end of the summer semester with graduating seniors who were reserve members transferring to units at their homes. . Men between 17 and 18 and one- half years old are eligible for enlistment in the Naval Reserve, as are men over 18 and c,ne-half who are in 3 A or 4-A draft classifications. Veterans of Coast Guard or Navy duty in pay grade E-2 or higher are also eligible--and .can enlist at their old rate. The unit, which specializes in radio and other eletronics techniques, drills four nights a month. Members receive four full day's pay for the drills. Reservists desiring active duty with the Navy can volunteer for a two.-year tour of active duty instead of the four year minimum required by the regular Navy. In addition, draft-age men who are members of the unit and who receive a draft call can, if they desire, be ordered^ to two years active duty with ' the Navy rather than entering one of tht other armed services through tht draft. Full information on the program and enlistments can be secured at company headquarters on the top floor of the Eason Building. R.F.D. Seven ·y JACK CArUiSU Although Fred Parker is nearing 80, and three of Tils four children are married, he became a grandfather for the first time last week. He was mighty proud of that eight-pound grandson that Vids presented him with last Tuesday. Mrs. Buena McKinnoh, who has been staying with the Prices while her broken ankle healed, returned home Tuesday. And the very day she got home she received a crate of Colorado cantaloupes through the mail. They were delicious, too. She left one in her mail box for me the next day. I notice that Roger Mitchell has the well driller working out in his back yard. There are a lot of rock walls being built these days. Flint Mhoon has just had one built in front of his place, W. W. Richeson has a nice one just'completed on the west side of his front yard, and the Bob Days are having a rustic-type wall built across the front of their yard. The rocks in the Day's wall are not smooth and some of them are moss-covered-real pretty effect.- Old Dan Cupid shot a powerful arrow last week. It went right through Joe Grebe's heart, came out and hit Bee Blakely right in the seat of the pants. You sec, Joe and Bee have been homing together for longer than anyone remembers and now that Joe is married, Bee just won't know what to do with himself. W. A.

Phont 1619 recently vacated by Oran Whitehouse, the property that is owned by Tack Hale. The Mount Salem churchyard was getting mowed Saturday. It is going to look a lot better, too. I think while they are at it, a little paint would add a lot to the looks --and help preserve it, too. And that reminds me that I forgot to mention that Joe King hid the outside of his house painted. He may have painted the inside, too, but I couldn't see ID there. Keith Heir'surt, thaucM I was stupid, playing trgunfl *tth those makes out there on the rout?. ftu couldn't get Keith in a vain- try mile of any kind of make. So what happens? The other day while Keith was out fishing, he raised up a large rock to set if he could find a crawdad for bait. In- stea of a crawdad, there was a cottonmouth snake under there and it bit Keith on the hand. He is all right now, but that just proves you can't get around fate. Several new families have moved to my route lately, and some of them failed to notify me that they were moving. The result was (it always is) that some of them had part of their mail returned because I had no way of knowing they were ever going to be on the route. Every day there is quite a bit of mail that is incorrectly addressed to RFD Seven and we have no way of telling which is which. The postoffice Is closed today, and I am spending my day off at Lake Leatherweod near Eureka Springs, where 'the rural carriers of this district are having a fish fry. Tomorrow will be a big day, though, as we will have just about all the monthy statements. The H. C. Baums are always coming up with something new in the way of livestock. Their latest addition is a young billy goat. Mr. Baum had him on a leash when he came down for the mall the other day. The goat was real friendly and kept trying to crawl up on Mr. Baurn's back. The first time tht Baums left the goat it home alone he climbed up on top of the house.... Somehow I never did care much for goats and I always found that, although they practically live on chlorophyll, it doesn't seem to work on them. . . But Mr. Baum says that his goat is 99 per cent odorless. . . and he teemed that way to me, too. But then I was sevtral feet away Mid the wind was In my favor. DOROTHY DIX -- CONTINUID moM PAOI rous more discretion. Shorts, pedalpushtrs and slacks should bt worn only by those who are by nature endowed to grace them -- and even at th«t, then are times and places w h e r e there are times and places where they are most decidedly out of place. Of course, since I myself have neither the years nor the figure to wear such garments, I could be accused of sour grapes in deploring their ubiquity. Even at that risk, I must condemn the wearing of such informal clothing in, for instance church -- and I have actually see girls, even older women, in church ^wearing slacks or shorts. Sunback dresses or pinafores, of the attractive type that are now available all over the land, are a different thing. They certainly provide adequate coverage, are cool, comfortable, and I see no reason why Rachel's husband should object to them, even under the conditions she outlines. They are suitable for picnics, shopping and certainly for anything done around the house. Rachel items to have a proper perspective on the type of clothes she wants to wear, and on the occasions when she would wear them. Friend husband's ideas are a trifle outmoded. However--always tht big however--if she can't change his mind she simply must choose between comfort and perpetual bickering.

Armed Revolt By Satellite Could Bring War U.S. Would Have To Decidt Quickly On Its Aid Program Washington-(/P)-An urmed revolt by · satellite nation afiainsi th» Soviet Union could pom the most dinferoui and difficult prob- lim confronting the United Smies in all the yean ot the ?-wd war. America would have to decide quickly whether it should h--!p the satellite, and determine the extent and form of help. Any dirtct support by American armed forcei to the satell'te presumably would mean emciigt.-ncnt with troops of the USSR and create the direct danger of siting off World War III. Conversely, failure to help could Injure American prestige irreparably and discourage other Communist conquered countries from seeking freedom. The possibility of an elaborate Moscow plan to start a war tnd place the apparent blame at the ·'free world would have to be rtcKontd with. Ruthless Kremlin policy would not hesitate to foment a revolutionary move deliberately to set the stage for inter- vention and world war. Th* U. S. and other western nations would have to decide qjiickly whether an uprising was genuine. Aid short of a full-scale expeditionary force could be givca fc revolting satellite by western nations, but its value would jc determined by the extent to which Russia moved against the revolution and the interpretation she might choose to place on the eld. Arms immediately available in the area could be sent tu the satellite. Military advisory oMi- cers, like those used in present military assistance programs with friendly nations, might be sent. But there would be no time for setting up a full-scale ar.ns aid program. A step beyond this might be air support of the satellite's £. euncl forces. But the difference b-'.ween sending in fighters and bombers and marching ground forces to the help of the revolutionists would be a matter of degree. In Washington, the proioecl of an uprising by a satellite nation against Russia--as distinguished from Tito's bloodless defection from the Moscow camp--Is looked upon as a possibility for the future which must be considerc'l, but which does not appear imminent.

Not A Traffic Accident Death , Baltimore - I D - Maryland police, who claim they have stripped the accident masquerade costume off a brutal killing, art charging a quiet New York office manager with the "perfect murder" of his Sunday school teacher wife. The plot that policy said led to the death of Dorothy Mae Crammer. 33, involved a scheme so engineered that the woman appeared to have died in a traffic accident--actually witnessed by two Baltimore city police. G. Edward Grimmer and the woman he is accused ot beating to death seem strangely out of character in the story unfolded on a Baltimore police docket. She is described by neighbors in the well - ordered Bronx apartment community wher she lived as a "sweet, nice person, a woman without an enemy In the world." Gramrner, who sometimes served as an usher in the Methodist church they attended, is described as a "quiet man" by his neighbors. His wife, the mother of three, devoted extensive time to Campfire Girls, neighbors said. Her body was found in an overturned car early the morning of August 20 near Towson, Md., where tht couple had been living since the recent death of her father. Two policemen had seen tht car careening wildly down tht hill, the engine roaring at full throttle. The wheels of the car were still spinning when they removed the woman's body. It appeared to be t routine .highway tragedy, brought on by too much speed and poor control. Ytt tht wonnn'f battered body didn't seem to match up very well with tbt moderately damaged condition of the car in the view ot polict. his wife's mother.

Russtll S. Fisher pointed out that dtaoj bodies do not bruise. And, ht said, thtrt was nothing in the car that could have caused the deep cuts and gashes on her fore- htaoj. There wtrtn't even any broken windows. Besides, a pebble had been forced under the accelerator to keeo It down. His verttic: -- murder, State's Atty. Anstlm Sodaro last night ordered the charges to be placed today. Sodaro said investigators had tht weapon with which Mrs. Crammer was beaten to death. Polict have in their possession an iron pipe, 12 to IS Inches long and about H4 Inches in diameter. Crammer was contacted at his Ntw York office the morning of August 20. He told polict that his wife had; drlvtn him to tht railroad station In Baltimore at 11:20 the night before and that he had caught a train for Ntw York.
