DUEL IN PROGRESS
OVER TWO BABES
(Belden, Neb., Progress)
A heated controversy is on be
tween two fond Belden grandparents
as to which one has the most glam
orous granddaughter. Since they
can come to no decision, it was de
cided to let some disinterested people
settle the dispute. It's this way.
John Beuck claims that because
his granddaughter, Barbara Beuck of
Plainvlew succeeded in winning her
man before she reached the age of
four, that that is ample proof of her
charm. And it will have to be con
ceded that she did make a lovely
bride in her long white dress with
Its flowing veil. Still your local edi
tor feels that her granddaughter,
Patty Anne Pickens, of Plattsmouth,
surely must be the glamorous one.
for she was selected for the star in
a two reel technicolor movie at the
age of four months! She not only
played the leading part but has her
own private producing company, with
her father as technician and oper
ator and her mother as the sole di
rector and designer of her wardrobe.
Now it is up to you to decide
which is the more thrilling, to be a
bride at a Tom Thumb wedding or a
baby in a private moving picture!
Mrs. C. A. Jones, editor of the
Belden Progress, is mother of Mrs.
Everett Pickens of this city and well
known to a large group of friends
over Cass county. j
