Favors State £(> Way of Picking Medical Students Hot Springs. Dec. 15 — CUP) •— Procedure used in selecting students for the University of Arkansas school of medicine is "an ex* cellent" one, in the opinion of Dr. H. Clay Chenaull. vice-president of the university in charge of medial education. He explained here today that students are sciccieu on the basis of scholastic records, prcmcdical education, military service, recommendations of premedical advisory groups in each college, and student grades made on medical aptitude tests. His explanation was made after State Sen. Lee Beardcn ot Leach- vlllc threatened a legislative investigation of the procedure used in selecting .students for the medical school, Bcarden also announced that he planned to introduce a bill requiring the school to admit at least one qualified student per term from each Arkansas county. He claimed that Mississippi county has not had had a student in the mod- cal school for seven years, except ohe or two through the war-time nnval training program.

Coming and Going Miss Norma Jean Franks of Northwestern University, Evan- slon, Illinois, will arrive Wednesday afternoon to spend the holiday XLI Suddenly she had turned, thrown herself toward him. He hadn'l Known the numan lorm could move so quickly. But she was so deft, she was so small. Her hand flashed out, a white missile before his face. The tumbler was gone from his grasp. Glass riddled on the floor somewhere offside beyond his ken. Her face seemed to melt into shapeless weeping lines, like a face seen through rain running down a pane. She caught him to her convulsively, crushing his face against her soft breast. He hadn't known her embrace could hold thai much strength. She'd never loved him enough to exert it to the full before. "Oh. merciful God." she cried out wildly. "Look down and forgive me! Stop this terrible thing, turn it back, undo it! Lou, my Lou! Only now I see it. Oh, my eyes are open, open now at last! What have I done?" Her sobbing had the mild, panting turbulence of a child's, strangling her words, rendering her almost incoherent. "I must have been made —Out of my mind —How could I have listened to such a scheme? But when I was with him. I saw only him, never you —He brought out that old bad self in me— He made wrong things seem right, or just something lo snicker at—" Her fingers, pleading, traced the outlines of his face; trembling, felt of his lips, of his lidded eyes, as if seeking to restore them to what they had been. Then suddenly her weeping stopped. Her head came up. She was baled, she was watchful, she was crafty. She turned and looked behind her at the window, in dreadful secretive apprehension. "Nobody shall take you from me." she said through clenched teelh. "I'll not give you up. Not for anyone. It's not too late, it's not! I'm going to get you out of here, where you'Jl be safe— Hurry, get your tilings. We'll go together. I have the strength for the two of us. You're going to live. Do you hear me, Lou?

She sidled up beside the window, creeping along the wall until she had gained an outer edge of it; then peered narrowly out, using the slit between curtain edge and wall. , "What is it?" he whispered Who's out there?" She didn't answer. Suddenly she drew her head back sharply, as if fearful she had been detected just then from the outside. "Shall 1 put out the lamp?" he asked. "No!" She motioned to him horrified. "For heaven's sake, no' I was to have done that. It will be taken for a signal that—it's over. Our only chance is to go now and leave it still on, as if —as if we were here yet." She came running back to him yet not forgetting even as she did so to throw still another backward glance of dread at the window; she setlled down beside him wilh a billowing-oul of her dress, took hold of his untended fool, raised it while he still strove valiantly with the first. "Quickly, your other shoe! There, that's all — No time for more." She helped him quit his sitting position on the edge of the bed, held him upright oa his feet beside her. „,," Le f n on me. I'll help you. There! There! Move vour feet that's it! Oh, Lou, try" She struggled heroically wilh him, as though she were the spirit of life itself, contesting with thr spirit of death that sought to posses him. Now holding him back when he inclined too "far forward, now drawing him on when he swayed too far backward. Out the room door and along the upper hall. Down the stairs cautiously, step by mincing step, she maintaining precariouh balance for two. As they neared the bottom of the endless staircase, were within one last step of it, she suddenly stopped, frox.en. And in Ihe silence, over the rise and fall of their two breaths, they both heard it. There was a low, urgent tapping going on against the front door. Very stealthy it was, very secretive. Meant only to be caught by a single pair of ears, no other. A pair forewarned to expect it to listen for it. Two lingers at the most, perhaps only one, kept striking at the woodwork. A peculiar whistle sounded wilh it. Also modulated very low, very guardedly. Little more than a stirring of the breath awainst a wavering upper lip. Plaintive, melancholy, like tne sound of a baby owl. Or a- lost wisp of night wind trying to find its way in. It wa.s intermittent. It wailed. Then sounded again. Waited. Sounded again. "Sh, don't make nay noise!" He could feel her arms tighten protectively about him. As if in.siiuc- tively seeking to safeguard him aayinst something. .Something that she understood, knew the meaning of, he didn't. "The back way." she breathed. "We'll have to ' go out by there— Hold your breath, love. For the love of heaven, don't make a sound or —we'll both be dead in here where- we stand." Cautiously, straining a:;ainsi one another, as much now to injure their mutual silenc-e as before now il hud been lo maintain his uprightness, they quitted the stairs, crept rearward on the lower floor. i into the dining room, then on iniu the Unlighted kitchen beyond. He heard a boil scrape softly back beneath her diligently groping fingers. Then a door moved inward, and the coolness of escape was grateful in their faces. (.To De C' DOROTHY DIX Dear Dorothy Dix: I am a girl in my early teens and I am having a very difficult problem to face. My Boy Friend is in the service and has three or more years to serve. I thought I loved him and promised to wait for him until he- could come back, but now I see things differently. I don't want to be married so young, as my sisters were, and be tied down with children. Also, I sec how badly my parents and sisters get along with their husbands and 1 don't want it to happen to me. I want to see something of the world and to have some fun before I get married, and I especially want to know more boys than just one before I make my choice of a husband. Bui I hale to think of hurting my Boy Friend by breaking off with him. What shall I do? AN UNHAPPY GIRL Answer: O wise young maiden, yau have an old head on young shoulders that makes you rcnlize that most of the unhappiness in the world comes from girls and boys marrying before they are ready for it. This may seem a sweeping statement, but it is the cold, hard truth. for it is a miracle when a child marriage turns out happily. This is inevitable because youngsters in their teens do not know what they want in a mate, still less do they know what they are going to be themselves when they grow up and are mature men and women. You are intelligent enough to have realized that, and to have perceived the folly of kid-marriages, for Ihe main reason why divorce is so common and so many husbands and wives lead a cat and dog life is because they married too young. Doomed to Failure School boys get married before they have any way of supporting a wife. Bobb.y-.so\ girls get married before they have had any playtime and they resent being tied down with babies and husbands. The result is the philandering husbands and the whining and complaining wives who fill the divorce courts. Don't worry ;.bout hurling the feelings of your Boy Friend, lie is almost sure to lv;ve reacted to th'e situation just a.s you have done. You have outgrown your calf loves. to Question Revolt Leader San Jose, Costa Rica, Dec. 15 — I (/P) — reader of 38 captured rebels will be brought here today for questioning by the Costa Rica government which charges he is a Nicaragua!!. The government said the cap- i lives were Nicaragua!! national I guardsmen taken yesterday near the rebel-held Costa Uica city of La Cruz 30 miles Irom Ihe border. The leader was idcnlificd as Pedro Jose Ordonez. Jose Figueres heart of Costa |Rica's military government is directing his campaign from headquarters here. He said La Cruz was being machincgunned from the air by government planes. Patting Ihe plslol he wears on his hip, the man who took control over the government after a successful revolt early this year said: "We expect more trouble." In an interview he declared th.it the attack launched from Nicaragua "could bo one aspect of a permanent struggle between democracies and dictators." In reference to Gen. Anastasio Somoza war minister and "strong man" of Nicaragua. Figueres said: "1 don't believe Somo/.a will be satisfied to have a clean-cut country south of his border." The Costa Rica government con tends that the revolt is being led by Rafael Calderon Gurrdin, former Costa Rican president, and that his forces have been equipped and are being supported by Nicaraguan national guardsmen. Those charges have been denied by the Nicaragua!! war minister. (President Victor Manuel Roman Y Reyes of Nicaragua told his weekly news conference in Managua "we don't intervene in the affairs of other countries. We adjust ourselves to international obligations.") For Your ''Christmas Girl" Dear Dorothy Dix: t am a married woman of 45. My oldest son is attending college where he has met a chap who has become his good friend and whom he brought home for a week-end.
