; News story of Danielle Dar
rieux' arrival reported the star as
bringing 47 trunks of Paris clothes.
It is typical of Hollywood, however,
that the actress' wardrobe In her
Universal picture, "The Rage of
Paris", will be entirely of studio
Recent spreads in the picture
magazines in which some of Holly
wood's most dignified stars were
seen disporting in bathing suits has
caused many a shudder among the
cinema great Which may or may
not be responsible for the fact that
it is very hard these days to get
an established actress to pose for
what is known as "leg art".
Among those banning the bath
ing suit pictures are Jeanette Mac
Donald, Wendy Barrie, Frances
Langford, Fay Wray, Patricia
Wilder and (since her marriage)
Will Rogers would have been f8

Columnist's mail. ... Dr. J. C.
Geiger, San Francisco's director of
public health, takes us to task for
printing that Michael Whelan's
mother may have contracted
measles from a fan letter. Such
a thing, he says, would be Impos
sible. We merely quoted Dr. C. A.
Seyfarth, of the Twentieth Cen-'
tury-Fox studio, who, incidentally,
still sticks to the opinion. Los
Angeles board of health, however,
thinks it would be very unlikely.
Mrs. John M. Zipp, of Tona
wanda, N. Y., sends list of 98
screen stars and wants their birth
places. ' We must bow out, but '
studios would supply the informa

A re-issue of Will Rogers' Great Picture
Thanksgiving is here agatn . .
no matter how we plan to spend
the day . . . whether in the ex
citement of a football game . . .
m a noisy crowd . . . whether
quietly at home with only fam
ily or friends . . . or take a trip
to get away from things . . . we
should carry in our hearts the
same spirit ... that of thank
fulness ... it is queer how hu
man it is to dwell . . . not on the
countless blessings we have . . .
but rather on the things we wish
for . . . and for some reason or
another we are unable to aquire
.... for most of us have much to
inspire gratitude . . . we have only
to look about us . . to realize . .
how much the common things of
life . . . could mean . . , if we were
denied them. . . .
The siu'lteriing warmth of home . .
sufficient clothing . . . food . . driends
. . . family , . . these simple things . . .
alter all hold most of the real joys ol
life .... but only when forced to do
without tlum do we understand
their necessity to our peace of mind
and happiness . . .. and yet the spirit
of the occasion '.'must gi beyond mere
gratitude. . . or the day will not be a
true thanksgiyinig . . . we must give
expression in terms of sharing with
those less fortunate . , . so look about
you ... your burden may be heavy , . .
but there is always something we acn
do lor others . .'.-'don't become e..
grossed in your good dinner . . that
you have no thought of others . .

have with you always . . . so forget
Hot that .perhaps right under your
eyes may be a cold and hungry child, .
Mr. Guy Chambers, president of
the soil conservation association
of Haywood county ... is making
a special appeal to our citizens to
buy from our own farmers . . , as
an example ... he insists that
there is entirely too much mi Ik
shipped into the county .... he
believes . . not only in a "Trade
at Home" campaign for each con
munity . . . but also as a county
wide project ... he claims there i
no milk any better man that pro
duced here in Haywood . . , buy
your milk and dairy products in
Haywood and keen the money in
your county, is his advice to ev
ery one. ...
Briefs . . . .Now that the Ked Cross
roll call . . . for HKJ7 . . is over . . . .

At the very delightful tea given on
Tuesday afternoon by Mrs. K. L.
Prevost . , . the thought came . . how
lucky Mrs. Prevost was in her four
daughters-in-law . . . Dorothy Lane
Prevost, Wilda Crawford Prevost,
Adora Hojtzclaw Provost, ami Patsy
Hill Prevost . . . and then on the other
hand how lortunate were her four
daughters (as she calls them she
never speaks of them as in-laws)
were in having such a Mother-in-law
. . . . How would you like to have
been the younig teacher in the town
ship schools W ho was asked . . . "Now
you aren't really telling me the world
is round ... it ain't so . . . Aly mama
says the Bible tells about the four cor
ners of the earth and that makes it
tint" . . the young teacher drew two
lines . . . one through the middle ol
the other . . she named one end,
.North . . . one South . . . then Kant
and West . . . the child seemed ubout
convinced . . . then she slowly made a
circle about the directions . , . and
doubt clouded his eyes . . . then he
came back . . ..'"Someone told me last
year that there wasn't no sky" ... .
and the teacher responded . . .that
was correct . . . it is only space . . '.
and then With milch resentment the
child said . . . ".Now 1 guess you'll lie
telling, me there ain't no heaven" ... .

Ever whir theze fellers hold a
