Two-Headed Baby ' Is Doing Fine INDIANAPOLIS W) —Indiana's two-headed baby, now 33 days old, was reported in satisfactory condition today, and ready to leave Rilny Hospital whenever the parents are able'-tb take- him. The parents, Mr. and Mrs. Cecil Hartley of near Petersburg, m southern Indiana, have said they wanted to take their son home as soon as . possible. However, their family physician, Pr Joseph ; W. Elbert, insists that they move into Petersburg before bringing him home. Thair log cabin, three miles from Petersburg, has no electricity, plumbing or running water, and the back road leading to it is impassable much of the winter. , Two Unbeaten Teams Taste First Defeats By RIP WATSON NEW YORK OR — Kentucky, Duquesne and Western Kentucky, the nation's last unbeaten major college basketball temas, had fair warning today: It takes more than a perfect record to creack a tough defense. Holy Cross and George Washington learned that fact to their sorrow last night as both went down to their first defeats of the season, Holy Cross bowing to Notre Dame 83-61 and George Washington to Maryland 68-61. The story was the same in both cases: Too much defense. With Togo Palqzzi missing 13 field goal attempts in the first half, Holy Cros.3 found itself on the short end of a 36-2ff score. A collapsing defense thoroughly Fhackled Palazzi and his mates, who were ranked sixth in the country and had won 11 in a row. George Washington's • streak stopped at 11 when the previously high-scoring Colonials couldn't solve Maryland's defense. George Washington, ranked seventh, trailed by 14-0 after 10 minutes and never got started after that, Kentucky, No. 1 team in the Associated Press poll, should improve their 10-0 record against Tulane tonight. But neither Duquesne nor Western Kentucky needed any kind cf warning about their opponents. Duquesne plays Niagara at the Upstave New York school, remembering their tight squeze over Niagara in the M&dison Square Garden Holiday Festival and also the Purple Eagles' reputation for being tough on their home court. Western Kentucky plays Eastern Kentucky, a bitter cross-state rival that upset the favored Hilltoppers exactly a year ago tommorrow. Sec ond-ranked Duquesne has won 14, fifth-ranked Western Kentucky 15. At least two other members of the top ten face trouble tonight. Indiana, No. 3, plays a return game at Wisconsin, a team the Hoo'siers nipped by 70-67 at Indiana for one of their four big conference successes v.'ithout defeat. Minnesota, No. 19, can't afford to let down against Iowa's young team, which has a 3-0 Big 10 mark against lesser opposition. . Oklahoma A&M, No. 4, visits Tulsa for a Missouri Valley game, I eighth-ranked Oklahoma City is host to Murray State of Kentucky and ninth-ranked Duke is idle. Texas clicked on 65 per cent of its shots in the second half to whip Rice 74iG6, giving the Longhorns a frbnt-runhing 4-0 nf'ark in the Southwest Conference. California whipped Stanford 83-63 Legal Notice COMMISSIONER'S SALE NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that by virtue of a decree of the Chancery Court of Hempstead County, Arkansas entered on the 7th day of January, 1954, in a cause pending therein, wherein Rena Clark was plaintiff and Mr. and Mrs. Ernest Clark et al were defendants, the undersigned as Commissioner, appointed by the Court will on the 30th day of January, 1954 offer for sale at public outcry to the highest bidder at the East Door of the Court House at Hope, Arkansas, the following lands, to- 'The North Half of the Northeast Quarter of Section Twenty Two (22) Township Eleven (11- South, Range Twenty Four (24- West, containing in all eighty acres, more or less.

A quick glance established them as representing the six retriever breeds. Another quick glance at Jack established the fact that he was definitely in a dilemma and it was easy to guess that he was trying to make a decision. "Give 'me a run-down on these breeds," he said. "I've shot over individual dogs, but one never knows in buying a dog if he can duplicate one certain specimen." He was so right. You have to take a certain amount of chance on the individual, but there are some things about the breeds that you can consider as generalities. First, let's eliminate the smooth and curly coated retrivers. These breeds are very rare in this country and at present would be quite difficult to get. Then let's add the , American water spaniel in case you .want a dog about half the weight of a. retriever but with otherwise similar qualities. Now look over the others. The Labrador retriver, commonly black or yellow or rarely chocolate, is a tough, hard-going dog, usually able to take strenuous, training better than most, Long, but flat coated and able to resist cold. The Chesapeak Bay retriever, sedge colored with a crinkler coat, is .extremely game and a wonder in water, but often more independ- sullen when Southern division of the Pacific Coast League, while Ore on and Oregon State moved ahead in the, aesthetically beautiful and often- a ' times has more setter-like desire ent and sometimes pushed too fast. ' The golden retriever, with its long flowing coat, is perhaps most northern division. Oregon Washington 01-49.

The Irish water spaniel stands out all by himself. With a waterproof coat, purge in color and silky in texture, and the smooth face of a poodle in kennel clip, terminating in a rat tail on which the hair grows flat with the tail as though plastered by continuous swimming he is the enigma of the dog world. He just won't play ball with anyone who tries to force loyalty' and performance of duty upon him. (Distributed by NEA Service) Peacocks and horseshoes are considered unlucky by horsemen.

Sight unseen, but because his ideas on changes were described as moderate, Eisenhower was a cinch to displease union leaders who wanted the law wiped out and those businessmen who wanted it made tougher or not changed at all. The most he could hope was that a majority of businessmen and organized workers would consider his proposals reasonable and good and that Congress would feel the same way and translate them into law. But he couldn't be sure before^ hand. And particularly he couldn't be sure that Congress, before quitting next summer, would make any changes or. If it did, that they would be the ones he suggested. What Eisenhower offpred today represented the end of much stumbling around inside the administration and the President'.: own official family on the question of amending Taft-Hartley. Last yr-ar congressional committees held weeks of hearings on the !aw, letting all interested parties -T- labor, business and others — have their say on what should ov shouldn't be done. When a committe is' considering legislation on a law as con- Jrover.siaJ and basic as Taft-Har(- Viy, it would bo usual for an ad it, says the American Musem of Natural History. Burns are fatal to about 7,000 Americans a year. The U; S. monthly milk product wlntev, spring and summer had been unable to make up its mind on what T-H changes it thought should bo made. Durkin complained, on the day he resigned, that he had been working with Eisenhower's White ion:is around eight million pounds.

This was Hope's third straight district win. Hope and Nashville were on even terms for the first few minutes of the initial quarter, but .Hope pulled away to a 15-10 lead. In the second period Hope put on a rally to outscore the Scrappers 17-11 for a 32 to 21 halflime lead.

Whales nourish thier young with milk. House aides on suggested changes, thought they had White House approval, and then found out they didn't. Eisenhower said he had never broken his word to an associate. So between last September and now the Eisenhower people have whipped up a list of changes, probably j'ewer than Durkin wanted, which the. President could say represented his considered opinion. Nevertheless, the difficulties encountered by Eisenhower on this subject were: fairly mild when compared with those of former president Truman, under •yyhosp administration, when the; Republicans controlled Congress] inj ,1947, T-H was passed; : .TijiuTiav; went a lot further than Eisenhower. He wanted T-H taken off ,the bool?s, which was what union labor leaders wanted. But in the following years, when his Pem- oVrais ran Congress, he couldn't dp anything either.

Any changes this Congress might make won't end the dispute. Orgaized labor wiU certainly be in pitching nex,t year fop more CHAPTER TWENTY-FOUR DON PARRISH evoked another storm that night, but of this one .tie was not oblivious. U was almost midnight when ne left Dale and. returned to Ma apartment. • P h 11 was prowling aimlessly around, naif listening to the radio, halt moodily conjecturing on Dale's whereabouts for the evening. Sarah had vouchsafed the scanty information, when ne called Aggie's earlier in the evening, that "Miss Dale was out." Twice, Phil nad started dialing a random number, and twice had cradled the receiver. His hankering for a date with any girl but Dale was lukewarm, and, "Brother, you're In deep!" he marveled, to himself. He dropped, into a chair and lit a cigaret as. Don-came in. "Hi," he said. "If .1 didn't know you better, I'd say you've been having yourself an evening of normal depravity. Dinner, for instance, with a pretty girl. That smug, well-fed look doesn't come from poring over scientific tomes under a green-shaded library lamp does it?" Don hung his jacket by the armholes over a chair back. "I had .dinner at Wivel's," he said. "With Dale." In mild surprise, -Phil murmured, "Never underestimate the power of a woman! I'd have said nothing but another Nagasaki could shake you from your books on the eve of an important conference." "Dale had a similar notion," Don said. "That girl has a head on her shoulders, Phil." "A very beautiful head," Phil murmured. His eyes were darker than usual, his tone contradictorily : light, "A lovely pair of shoulders, too—though she'd have to light them up with Roman candles before you'd notice," "I noticed," Don said nbncom- mittally, Phil' pressed- out. his cigaret and lighted another, ''Loqk, Don," he said; ^seriously, his. lighter tone gone, • ''it's time .we got one thing straight. You've never stood In my Way over a girl before, put there's a first time for everything, Incjud- iflg. rivalry, to that it?" Don lounged lazily on a chair arm and shooKhis head. "Women have no place in my plan for living. I can't afford to squander my emotions—not now. Maybe never, 1 ' •'Need science rule out all the normal human urges?" Phil asked curiously. "Not entirely. But tt rules out marriage, because it would cuin it. Fw pie, ajtut Bw girl." He gave Phi} a quizzical look, "I thought jit was a relationship you were cagey too," "1 am going to marry Dale," PW1 said, f Don's shoulders moved "It's not the major Instinct," Phil said, his brow darkening, "Yes, I'm sure." "And how will you enjoy living with the memories of a once-married girl?" Phil's grin came suddenly. "Don't underrate me, knucklehead! I'll break the mystic band of memories." '"'Tut, tut, child, said, the Duchess,'" Don murmured. "I can pick a phrase from Alice, too , . . Frankly, Phil, I'd rather see you married to a girl whose affections were intact." "That's the girl you will see me married to." Phil stood up with characteristic abruptness. "I just wanted to make sure you and I weren't going to come to blows. 1 wouldn't relish walking over you to get to Dale." When Dale left Don at the door and went In, Andrea Parrish was at the piano. Her hands were Idle on the keyboard. The light cast a nimbus around her fair head. Looking at her from the doorway, Dale thought, She looks so young to be what she is. So fragile. A wo rId-f amous pianist surely should carry some marks of the long fight up, the arduous years of toil. "Hello, there!" Dale went Into the room and tossed her hat on the couch. "You look tired." For when Andrea turned around, there were the marks; fatigue, bending her shoulders, shadowing her eyes. "I'm dead." Andrea took the hard rubber practice ball out of her pocket, squeezed It once absently, replaced it In her pocket. "On a hot day like this, I wonder if it's worth it. Work, work, worK. If 1 stop for a day, I lose ground. Two days, and It takes me three to catch up. I'm on a treadmill." She crashed tier hands down In a discord, "This keyboard Is the master of my soul!" Dale laughed. "When Carnegie Hall rocks with applause next week, you'JJ think It's worth It," she said smoothly. "Yes, of course," But Andrea sighed. She turned fully around, facing Pale, he? hair falling for- ware) over hey cheeks. "Be really honest with me, will you? Am ( giving up too much by renouncing marriage?" "Out of a clear sky," Pa}e murmured. But Andrea's was no mood for banter, "Must you?" she asked soberly. Andrea nodded, I'm u musician first, a woman segpnd, AWJ what man would be pecpncjled to that? 1 can't change myself, Dale, It's too late, even If 1 wanted to, For one tiling, 4 like what i am. But the man 1 married would have to live my life, trail me froin contl* nent to continent, from concert hall to concert ball."

What man could endure it?" "One, perhaps, who could b« caught up In the psychical storm of great music to the extent of self-oblivion." ^ "And wouldn't I despise such a ^ man! If, Indeed, he exists. No, Dale. Marriage is out. 1 settled that long ago. What 1 am asking is this, am 1 giving up too much? You nave been married. You know what I'm going to miss. Tell me, shall I regret it?" * ' Dale twisftd Kelly's ring on her finger. "1 wouldn't trade one day I had with Kelly for all your years of triumphs, Andrea." Renouncing Dale's conviction, (j| Andrea stood up. "Oh, you sound like a woman! Only someone as dedicated as I could possibly see my side—" "Your brother Don," Dale suggested, "Why don't you have a heart-to-heart talk with him?" A wry smile curved Andrea's mouth. "1 wonder If lie knows what he's giving up?" she murmured. • • * All music, someone has said, is what awakes from you when you are reminded by the Instruments. At Andrea Parrish's concert, Dale responded ardently to memories, and no stone or reality clogged the stream of her delight. By coincidence, Andrea was wearing a yellow gown with par ma violets—the colors she had worn three years ago at the Chicago concert. It was not, of course, the same gown. This, a Maggie Rouft original, had been flown from Paris a week ago; but the gown, the violets, and the music carried Dale back vividly to another time, another man beside her. The man whose dark-clad shoulder brushed her bare one was Kelly. The subdued voice before the Chopin Fan" tasie in F Minor murmuring, "Watch for her thunderous climaxes in this!" was Xelly's voice —until Dale turned to share her delight with Mm, and saw the fair , bright hair and th-? astonishingly dark eyes. The illusion faded. With the abruptness and finality of a dream, it was gone. This was Phil, not Kelly, Afterwards ptiey went to a small restaurant on Seventh Avenue where Andrea was to meet them. "A small supper celebration," she had stipulated. "Just the flve ot us." Don fidgeted as they sat waiting \ tot Andrea to come. "Sit still," Aggie ordered. Ph») grinned 1 at his aunt. "Music softens rocks and bends, oaks, but it seems to nave a less soothing effect on scientists than on e>v<t ages!" "Even so," Aggie said sternly to Don, "you are (19? to sppij drea'e evening, She J<rt y your h,ea£ «(( «§st night
