As a result, police said, the driver made a statement fhat the car was the one which struck and killed the father. Ernest Volkmann, 71, an elevator operator in the Edgewatcr beach apartments, was killed at a northwest side intersection yesterday by a car which failed to stop. Pieces of glass, part of the nameplate and parts of the grillwork were found at the scene. At the inciuest, relatives and witnesses were told to be on the lookout for a car which was similarly damaged. Early today Volkmann's son John, '10, a brokerage house em ployc, saw such a car about a block from (!••" accident scene. He telephoned police. ' ifT' Patrolmen Patrick Walsh nnd Donald Verklc-r said the windshield nnd grill had been repaired lust that the broken naineplate portion fitted perfectly. The license had been issued to Arthur S. Mai ouf. I.'), an assembler. Walsh and Verkler said that when Malouf was confronted with the naineplate. he made a statement that ho was the driver. He was detained without charge. "I was scared lo death when I woke up nnd read in the newspapers that the man had died," the' policemen quoted Malouf as saying. that Kussia and her salellHies tcrly opposed the which includes such articles those: Everyone has the right to life, liberty and security of person — to freedom of thought, conscience and religion—to freedom to opinion and expression this right includes freedom to hold opinions without interference and to seek, receive and impart information and ideas through any media regardless of frontiers. Everyone has the right to a nationality—to take part in the government of his countrv—to a standard of living adequate for the health and well-being of himself and family—to a social and intcr- I national order in which the rights land freedoms set forth in the declaration can be fully realized. All human beings are born free and equal, in dignity and rights. • When the document, finally was completed and came before "the 58, member social committee for " ap jprowal, the Soviet bloc declared it •was unsatisfactory. The Communists claimed it violated sovereign rights and failed to include a condemnation of fascism. However the declaration wns adopted 2G to I and now goes to the general assembly. It isn't difficult to understand course, why the Bolshevism nition of the term. As a matter of decHrUion I '' ncl ' il s aboul Ul nc all hands rc- 'jviewed the meaning of the word. Webster's new international dictionary defines Fascism as the Fascist movement in Italy or. by extension, to any similar movement elsewhere. The Fascist society was created by Mussolini to oppose Bolshevism. Then Hitler appropriated the general idea and founded Max.ism—also to combat communism. Well, il isn't hard to understand why Moscow should have a special hatred for the Italian and German isms, aiul should have applied the term "Fascism" to both brands of anti-communism. What a lot of folk don't realize, however, is that Moscow has extended the use of "Fascist" to apply to any government, organization or even individual opposing communism. In this manner "Fascist" gradually has become a generic: term ,_ for all opposition to communism. ( "(So it has conic about that these days we frequently hear "Fascist" employed as a general designation of political opprobrium by "people who don't recognize its real significance as used by the Reds. Many of course use "Fascist" in ccnncction with any totalitarian regime. If wo accept that as its definition, il applies to all Bolshevist governments, but obviously doesn't i ff irj/Ti/'Wr' » *«.

V.'hen asked, how, often do you read comic books answers ca'mc j from the same 100.000 high school I students, nation wide, as follows: Almost never forty-three per cent, ' less than once a wee"'; nineteen per cent, about once a week twenty-one per cent, almost every day four- I teen per cent, more than once a j day three per cent. In our high i school Hie survey showed: Almost j never thirty-nine per cent, less than i once a week twenty-one per cent, 1 about once a week nineteen per cent, almost every day eighteen per cen'. more than once a day four per cent. It is apparent that tar more than half the students contacted spend some time with comic books, and almost one-third of the students read them once a week. The P.T.A. groups believe with that many boys and girls concerned it is worth while at least to determine what is in the books. Opin- i ion was expressed by the P.T.A. j leaders that the probable most jhnimful result among our own school students was simply that the time might be spent mo're profit- I ably with better literature.

David sent a $5,000 extortion note to his employer. He explained ho wanted the money for an operation on his face because his companions called him "ape" and 'monkey face." He was placed on four years' probation and an Ohio manufacturer who asked to remain anonymous sent $1.000 for the operation to Iha-J Juvenile Protection association here. The operation was performed by Dr. Ferris Smith of Grand Rapids, Mich., who refused a fee. Since then, David's outlook has improved steadily. 'He has made an excellent social adjustment," Miss Jessie Binford of the association said today. "His outlook on life has changed completely." The youth is employed as a machinist and has chosen an army ca rccr as his goal. The only thing.* preventing his induction is faulty'" eyesight. A Chicago doctor who is treating him hopes that the glasses he now wears will correct his sight sufficiently to enable David to pass the army tests. The word "plant" originally i meant twig, shoot or sapling. At the first sign of a cold, you should obey three simple rules: 1. Keep warm and get as much I rest as possible. 2.
