Mrs. Simpson’s Haven in Crisis
* - -
(Continued From Page One)
our very finest Shamrock folks came
from Northeast Texas and Southeast
Oklahoma, particularly from down
around Hugo. And there at Hugo
cld R. B. Lewis and JAUB, at one
time, were highly respected citizens
who could cash checks at some of
the stores, and for a while, both of
us had credit at the leading de-
partment store. That was over 10
years ago, of course, and things have
changed considerably since then.
We can't figure out what’s wrong
with the Rock Island people. We
asked F. E. Stevens to fix the street
crossings on Main and Madden
streets a week ago, and they’re not
fixed yet. Those street crossings are
a pet peeve of JAUB and Horace
Belew and we sure do want you to
get started on this, Steve.
Here’s a cheery note for all housewives
who wish to save on holiday foods. We
bring you the finest quality foods for
your Christmas feast . . . things to light-
en your Christmas planning and priced
to save you real money.

The ideal location of villa Lou Viei as a refuge for Mrs. Wallis
Simpson, after her flight from England, is revealed here. The villa,
home of Mr. and Mrs. Herman Rogers, American friends of Mrs.
Simpson and Edward, former king of England, is set in the hills
Cannes, France, and is protected from sightseers by a heavy
Jpbwth of trees. Mrs. Simpson found seclusion here during Eng-
K land’s furor over Edward’s love for her and his abdication.
JAUB is so back-woodsy he can’t
get used to families putting their
gifts on a Christmas tree. We grew
up in a heavily timbered country
where you could pull up a half
dozen Christmas trees out of your
own back yard, but they never had
Christmas trees for the kids back
there. On Christmas Eve the kids
hung up big stockings by the fire-
place, or if you never had a fire-
