Cradle Keeps On A-Rocking By HAROLD 0. TAYLOR Pittsburg Headlight & Sun PITTSBURG (AP) — A cradle made in 1890 by Albert Gallett of St. Paul, Kas., keeps right on rocking along after three genera- ions of use. Sharing the same sentimental spotlight in the same family is a Daptismal robe, also still in regu- ar use but with considerably less service. It was made in 1911. After Gallett made the cradle for his first child, Regina Galle'tt now of Pittsburg, it was kept in use for seven more children in the 'amily. Deciding it had served its purpose, Mrs. Gallett gave it to her sisters, Mrs. Gene Fortune, also of St. Paul. Mrs. Fortune used the rockabye rig for her nine chil- ren before storing it in a barn. After a few years of idleness, it was about to be discarded when the oldest girl, Mrs.. Margaret Fortune Berry, now of Colorado Springs, then a bride, protested. She wanted to keep the chain of rocking alive in the family. She waited 17 years but that day came. On the Fortune side alone the cradle has rocked children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. Although it is stationed temporarily at the home of Mrs. Mildred Crandon in Pittsburg, there are periodic "reservations" for the cradle. It occasionally goes into other states.

Auto Sales Executives LOS ANGELES (AP)-A*federaV grand jury has returned antitrust indictments against General Motors Corp., four Chevrolet sales executives and three Southern California dealer associations. The jury charged the defendants with conspiring to stop individual dealers in Southern California from selling through discount houses. GM Board Chairman Frederick Donner denied the accusation. He said GM frowned on the discount dealers' lack of service facilities and other customer conveniences —but did nothing to discourage the discounters. The indictment, prepared by the Justice Department's antitrust division, said "shoppers" were hired by the defendants to determine which dealers were selling cars through discount houses. The shoppers would buy cars and the defendants would "induce or persuade" dealers to buy the cars back. Retail sales of Chcvrolcts, through all sources, totaled §250 million last year in Southern California, the jury said. It said discount house car sales in this area have grown from a trickle in 1953 to a retail total of about S3 million. By SAM DAWSON AP Business News Analyst NEW YORK (AP)-Is a company better managed if its officers lay their own money on the line by owning stock in it? That is a favorite topic raised j by stockholders at annual meetings. It also presumably is discussed at some boards of directors meetings. Stock traders also keep an eye on sales or new purchases by management, regarding it as a possible sign of how much confidence they may have in the company's future. In practice, ownership of their own company's stock by executives runs all the way from none to 85 per cent or more. Changes in such ownership through sale or purchase are reported by listed companies to stock exchanges and government regulatory agencies. The point that nonmanagement stockholders raise the most is: Officers and directors should own some stock because that insures they'll take a more personal interest in its affairs. j regard to the extra incentive of personal gain. The gain could come tlirough increased dividends, which as directors they might vote; or increased market price of shares, which as insiders they may be in position to influence. To see how much management holdings come to in companies on the Big Board the New York Stock Exchange turned to Standard & Poor's Listed Stock Reports. A sampling of 245 listed magazine notes that an executive may own a large block of stock in a giant corporation and still be a relatively small holder, percent- agewisc. Thus in large companies huge amounts of outstanding stock, the total of management's ownership may come to a tidy dollar figure, although the percentage seems small. The Exchange also notes that changes in percentage of ownership may occur for other reasons By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS What to do if you get the flu, how throat swabs may help stop some heart disease, and a new aid for heart surgeons are subjects for Focus on Health: Flu This Health experts Fall? warn another flu season approaches.

Medical Messenger A new attack against rheumatic fever and rheumatic heart disease involves the Post Office Department. Chicago doctors are getting throat swab kits suitable for mailing as the latest aid to diagnosing the disease that brings on rheumatic fever. Caught in the early stages it can be cured. A type of streptococcus germ sets the stage for rheumatic fever. Doctors will be able to take a throat swab from a sick patient, seal it in an envelope and mail it to a laboratory where the type of germ can be identified. If the specimen is the dangerous kind, the doctor can find out quickly before rheumatic fever has a chance to develop. The mail-in system was devised by the Chicago Heart Association and Board of Health. Heartbeat Trigger In the heart there is a critical bundle of nerves which controls the heartbeat. Some children are born with defective hearts. For surgeons trying to repair those hearts, the heartbeat center is often a hazard. An operation in which surgeons try to mend a hole between two chambers of the heart comes dangerously close to the heartbeat trigger. Injury occurs in perhaps 10 per cent of these operations and may lead to death. Now a new electronic instrument can exactly locate the center in a matter of minutes. Developed at the Children's Hospital Medical Center, Boston the device is expected to completely eliminate the possibility that the heartbeat trigger will be injured during open heart surgery.
