    Blind Child Victim of False Rumor Blind Bonnie Lee
Kirchen of Grand Ledge, Mich., has been the victim of a false
rumor which says that a certain cigarette company will do
nate a seeing-eye dog to any needy blind person upon presen
tation of 40,000 red celophane tabs from cigarette packages.
People from Grand Ledge and surrounding community saved
their tabs for five-year-old Bonnie, but she won't get her
dog the company says there is no basis for the rumor Bonnie
is shown with some of the many strips she has collected.

Land Planners
Role Explained
Mark Astrup, landscape archl
tect for the state highway de
partment, told members of the
Oregon Society of Landscape Ar
chitects of the role played by
land planners in the state's plan
ning for new highways, such as
the Columbia river project, at
the quarterly meeting of the so
ciety here Saturday.
Route planning, conservation,
roadside beautification and de-
velopment of tourist facilities are
part of the landscape architect's
problems which must be solved
in cooperation with the engineers
who actually build the roads and
brides, Mr. Astrup pointed out.
Work of representative land
scape architects of the state will
be displayed at the Portland Art
museum beginning Sunday, May
22, in the first exhibit of its type
in the state. Residential garden
plans, recreational playground
and park designs, hotel, hospital
and other institutional ground
development and industrial
ground and area planning will
be featured. Another phase of the
exhibit is expected from the
landscape departments of the
Universitv of Oregon and Oregon
State college. Arthur W Erfeldt.
44V2 CARAT STONE
Wants to Peddle Famed
Jewel to Rita's Boy Friend
Washington (U.R) Paging Aly Kahn!
There's a big operator in town who wants to sell the fabled
Hope diamond to Rita Hayworth's favorite Indian. He thinks Rita
would like it as a wedding pres-
the appraised value, to pay off
tax claims against the estate.
The trustees are trying to ar
range a private sale, rather than
to invite a public auction with
all the attendant fanfare. They
are not anxious to rake up all
the old tragedies that have dog
ged the McLean family since
the late Edward Beale McLean
bought the ill-starred Hope di
amond in 1912 as a honeymoon
gift for his bride.
Werts said he has the cash to
buy the whole lot or the Hope
diamond alone. The Hope was
appraised $176,920, and the Day
ton diamond man said hes will
ing to go even higher than that
if he has to.
ent,
There's just one catch. The
big operator, Jack M. Werts of
Dayton, O., doesn't own the
Hope diamond yet.
But he thinks he may have it
in a week or so. And if Rita and
Aly aren't afraid of the Jinx
that's supposed to haunt the
gem, he figures it would add a
romantic touch to their wed
ding. Especially since the stone
came originally from India some
S00 years ago.
It's not a 11 romance with
Werts, however.
"The money's there," he said
practically. "That Aly Khan is
good pay."
Right now the Hope diamond,
a blue-white, 44 1-4 carat bauble
that has adorned some of his
tory's most publicized beauties,
belongs to the estate of the late
Evalyn Walsh McLean.
When she died two years ago
Mrs. McLean left the Hope and
the rest of her $606,000 jewelry
collection to her seven grand
children. The gems were to be
held In trust until 1967, when
the youngest grandchild, Mamie
Spears Reynolds, will be 25
years old.
But the trustees recently ob
tained court permission to sell
the entire lot, at not less than
