Career Liberal Arts designed to meet special needs women. There has been a dropping off students in the creative arts (drama, music, etc.) since 1947 Britain, U.S. f Want Low Level Talks By JOHN M. H1GHTOWER WASHINGTON (AP) — The United States and Britain are sticking to their idea that special ambassadors — not their foreign ministers — should seek to negotiate an agreement banning mu- clear weapons tests. The two governments have drafted a note to Moscow turning down a Soviet proposal that foreign ministers of the three powers meet at Geneva Oct. 31 for that purpose. Diplomatic informants indicat- •d, however, that the Western powers would leave the way open 'or a possible meeting of foreign ministers to ratify such an agreement if and when it lias been worked out by East-West ncgotia- ,ors at a lower level. Some diplomats said that in drafting the note the Washington and London governments sought o give a "yes but" reply to the Soviet Union's unexpected call for a conference of foreign ministers. Their purpose, it was said, was ed that Vaughn was driving without a slate operator's license. On Sept. 12. 1952, Vaughn was the driver of an automobile which caused the death of an Alton woman on East Broadway, Alton At that time, the Cottage Hills man was declared to have been "driving in a willful and wanton manner without regard for the life and safety of others" by a coroner's jury. Reason for the girl being at the intersection, a designated school crossing, on a day when school was out, was vague. It was reported that she had been headed for a neighborhood grocery store. Police Sgt. J. C Vollintine and Patrolman L. A Petitt, who investigated, found pieces of red paraffin imbedde( in the right front headlight o'f the car, apparently play-teeth such as youngsters carry. Investigation disclosed that Connie was crossing the street from the west to the east and Vaughn was travelling south on Central. Vauglui said that he was driving approximately 15 to 20 miles per hour in the 35 mile per hour zone. He stopped following the mishap, which occurred at approximately 8:20 a.m. Vaughn's neighbor, Richard Vancil, 1313 Stanley Rd., Cottage Hills, said that he had been pushing his friend's automobile and ,vas following closely behind but didn't see what happened at the intersection but did see the body of the little girl lying about '20 feet away on the pavement.
