The city's public school enrollment i 128,482. Washington's public schools are racially integrated but the report showed that of the 173 public schools, 20 are all-Negro and six are white. They are located in neighborhoods almost solidly Ne gro or white. The city's population is a little more than half Negro. Output Gain WASHINGTON (AP) — Indus trial output has snapped out of its slight slump in September.

The October index of 113.1 com pared with a September level o. 111.5 and the previous high in August of 112.9. Focus On Health Stay Healthy, Wise By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Intelligence, a new technique to avoid scars from burns, and lealthy executives figure in the medical news: Intelligence Endures When older people stay healthy and vigorous, there does not appear to be any decline in their ntelligence with the advancing years, says Dr. Robert W. Kleemeier, Washington University psychologist. He gave intelligence tests at intervals over a 12-year period to persons aged 65 to 90. He found no evidence for the idea there is a normal and steady intellec' tual decline with the years. But in those who were soon to die, regardless of age, the tests revealed a sharp drop in performance. Burns Without Scars For severe burns, a Belgian plastic surgeon uses a bold new technique which he reports avoids scars and deformities. Under anesthesia, Dr. Jean Lor- thior of Brussels "sandpapers" the burned areas immediately with a high-speed abrasive drill to remove the dead tissue. A month after the scraping, the skin has been restored, and in nearly all cases it eliminates any scarring, says Medical World News. Healthy Executives Popularly, the business executive is thought of as a "harried and hurried man driven inexor ably toward an early death." But this concept is not supported by findings by Robert H. Thorner, M.P.H., and E. L. Crumpacker, M.D., of Washington, D.C. in a 10-year study of 451 male executives. The executives had less than half the death rate expected among the general white male population of comparable age. A main cause of 11 deaths among the businessmen was heart attacks, but even their heart attack rate did not seem excessive. A high standard of living and good medical care apparently help executives live longer than the average man. HOMES FOR AMERICANS Witchcraft Results Real? DETROIT (AP) -"I've seen a woman point at a man and say, 'You'll die before sunset," and he went home and died," a physician from South Africa said Thursday. After investigating scores of sudden deaths among the Bantu in South Africa, Dr. R. J. W. Burrell said, he is convinced that the results of belief in witch-craft are real. Dr. Burrell, who is with the Bantu Cancer Registry, Cape Province, South Africa, addressed a symposium on the causes of heart attacks at Henry Ford Hospital. Heart disease is virtually nonexistent among the Bantu, the physician reported. Hal Boyle Arise, Fat Men, And Fight Back By HAL BOYLE NEW YORK (AP)-It takes real courage today to be a fat man. The fellow who packs a paunch is one of the unsung heroes of our times. He is the great nonconformist of this generation, and his protuberant tummy is a badge of Union Joins In Good Deed Of One Of Its Members EAST DETROIT, Mich.

But why do they have to regard all fat men as sinners—and their mortal enemies Every time these emaciated wretches meet an honest fat man they poke a bony finger in his chubby stomach and say things like: "You're putting it on again, 1 fine by Macomb County Local 523 of the Journeymen Barbers Union because he kept his shop open on a Wednesday in August, giving the $40 in receipts to Frazzitta.

It is high lime the fat men of America formed themselves into a protective society to ;>uard themselves against detracteors. They should carry a neon-lit sign on their stomachs saying: "Please do not touch. Contents valuable." A fat man, if left alone, is generally one of nature's noblemen. His crime, if any, is that he sim- ply enjoys the good things of this world—and doesn't mind showing it. He is no hypocrite. The ordinary fat man is peace- loving and law-abiding. He rarely robs banks, beats his wife, fights cops or cheats at pinochle. He wisely spends most of his energy enjoying himself. He doesn't havo any energy left to get into trouble. Secretly, he probably has a quiet pride in his large, economy- size stomach. It has many advantages. You can't beat it for showing off a Phi Beta Kappa key, and it makes a wonderful shield in pushing one's way through a crowded bus. All fat men ask is that they be left alone to go through life enjoying peace of mind—and a piece of cake. too. Their motto is, "Live and let live." But skinny people won't let them. Skinny people can't si and the sight of a comfortable, contented fat man. It's about time fat men started fighting back. Our suggestion is that on a given day of each month—and at a certain hour— every fat man in America should turn around and fall down on the nearest dieler and smother him.

Legislation No Cure-Ail For Juvenile Delinquency By BILL SCHUL Let's say you have been lying awake at night because of a problem which has been eating away at you and you pause in your mental paroxysm to ask yourself, "What legislation could be passed to help me out?" Chances are Morpheus would be delayed somewhat longer while you wrestled with this second problem and undoubtedly it would be resolved en route that statutory measures would actually be of little assistance. But when social problems occur, such as juvenile delinquency, we ask for a review of our laws and for the moment forget the old adage that it's nigh impossible to legislate human nature. This isn't to say, of course, that law cannot right the wrong, bring about balance and establish the social contracts for the protection of us all, but there aru many stresses residing outside of law's domain, and these cannot be eradicated by statutes. The above example was used by Professor Monrad G. Paulsen, of the Columbia University school of law, in addressing more than one hundred persons who attended the "Justice For The Child" conference sponsored by the University of Chicago. Gathered were professors, attorneys, judges and youth directors from throughout the country, and the speakers included such well-known experts in the field of crime and delinquency as Philip Green, director of the Juvenile Delinquency Service of the U. S. Children's Bureau; Paul Kalin, a director of the National Council on Crime and Delinquency; Dr. Alfred Kahn of the New York School of Social Work; Judge Orman Ketchum of the juvenile court of Washington, D. C.; Elliot Studt, author of numerous works on problems related to the treatment of offenders, and David L. Hackett, executive director of the President's Committee on Juvenile Delinquency and Youth Crime. Johnson County Juvenile Judge Herbert Walton and Mrs. V. Bryce Ballard and Mrs. Murray Hodges, of the Olathe Citizens Committee to the Juvenile Court, attended the workshop, and we came away proud of Kansas. The progress here in fields hardly scratched by some of the other states and the solid foundation of our Juvenile Code allowed room for optimism. And, despite publicity to the contrary and the mileage the teen-age gang wars are getting these days in the news, the conferees viewed the national scene with somthing a great deal mor« positive than defeatism. Sure, they were willing to admit there are some problems, but none were about to throw up their hand5 in resignation and write the dilemma off as an incurable symptom of a sick world. Huh-uh. But there was general agree! mcnt with Professor Paulsen'g | prognosis that legislation cannot i be a cure-all and can offer little ! in the way of prevention. j A resounding applause followed I the professor's concluding state! ment: "If we want some answers, let us not forget in our study of the delinquent that but for the grace of God there could have been any of us. Who of us didn't commit an act in our adolescence that could have tagged us as a delinquent?" To Name Hall For Benefactor LAWRENCE (AP)-A long-time benefactor of the University of Kansas—Mrs. Margaret B. Hashinger of La Jolla, Calif.—will be honored by having a student residence hall named for her. Chancellor W. Clarke Wescoe announced at a K.U. alumni meeting in Los Angeles Thursday night that the Kansas Board of Regents had decided to name in her honor a hall under construction on the west side of the campus. In 1940 when she was the wife of the late J. R. Battenfeld of Kansas City, Mo., she and her husband e s t a blished Battenfeld Hall at K.U. in memory of a son killed in an automobile accident. After a second son was killed in 1945 in a Navy airplane crash, she gave funds to build in his -memory an auditorium in the con- trinuation study center at the University of Kansas Medical Center in Kansas City. She is now married to Dr. Edward H. Hashinger, retired K.U. faculty member.
