fJOLLYWOOD, Feb. 3—(U.R>—Did
** you ever ponder the history of
that familiar American item, the
Well, it might interest you to
know that it first rolled off the
rugged slopes of North China a
mere 1,500 years ago.
Research by Universal-Interna-
tional for its production of “Sign
of the Pagan,” starring Jeff
Chandler, Ludmilla Tcherina and
Jack Palance, uncovered the fact
that the Huns, under the leader-
ship of Attila, were complete no-
mads, living, sleeping eating and
raising their families in the wag-
ons and chariots that carried them
westward from the slopes of Mon-
“Their trailers were no parlor-
bedroom-and-bath designs,” the
director, Douglas Sirk, pointed out.
“They were rough-hewn, with
huge animal skins forming a can-
opy and a carved bird’s head at
the forepeak of its tent ribbings,”
The migration of these prede-
cessors of today’s trailer would put
most of history s most famous
treks to shame. Literally thou-
sands of families of Attila s forces
followed their warriors to the
banks of the Danube. A Hun sol-
dier of 450 AD. could fight all day
and be home for dinner.
Attila’s family was a great cara-

the floating quality of a new swimsuit demonstrated by three
Chicago models who are floating in water with their hands tied
behind their back. The new suit, which is almost identical in
appearance to the regular suit, uses captivated air cells within
the soft material to provide the buoyancy. There is nothing to
inflate and manufacturers say the buoyancy is permanent
Q. Don't you think it wrong and
tactlesa for a person to thrust
words of condolence upon a ber-
eaved person when he knows that
person prefers not to discuss his
A. Yes; words of condolence
should always be few, but sincere.
The old French philosopher. Ros-
seau, once said: “Consolation in-
discreetly pressed upon us, when we
are suffering under affliction, only
serves to increase our pain, and to
render our grief more poignant."
Q. What shoud be served by the
hostess at an informal tea?
A. Tea, sandwiches, and cakes.
Nothing should be served that is
difficult to manage with the fing-
Q. If a widow has a son with the
