Lt Col. Luther Jones, Monroe, talks things over with Tim Holt, western movie star, who visited West Monroe last Thursday morning.  Jones served as pilot on the B-29 City of Monroe, with Holt as bombardier for six months in 1945.  Friday night Jones went to Alexandria (LA) as a guest of Holt's at a rodeo performance. Jones reported Holt as anxious to bring his rodeo Monroe next year, even promising to get other Hollywood stars to make personal appearances for a special, allout show for Monroe residence.
