He is Dr. Albert Szent-Gyorgi, 60, who late yesterday was presented the Albert Lasker Award of the American Heart Assn. -including a $1,000 prize — for "dis- .inguished achievement" in the ield of research concerned with leart and blood-vessel diseases. Specifically, h e was honored f or jioneerihg studies leading to a >etter understanding of the action he AHA declared had provided new clues to the mechanism of lear t failure and "removed . . , many barriers to the study of normal and diseased hearts." The gentle, friendly, gray-haired researcher had won the Nobel Prize in medicine in 1937 for his solation of vitamin C. And he had won other honors 'or other achievements. But, all that was behind him when Jis came to this country in 1947 from Hungary to continue work on muscle research that had been interrupted by World War II. World Has 100 Dialects - No \ to Understand By HAL BOYLE .

So no wonder it's hard to tell what the other fellow is -trying to say. The number of blind people in the United States has risen from 225,000 in 1948 to more than 308.000.

Guy Jones of Conway told the Associated Press in a telephone conversation that he is considering making the race and that he would make a definite announcement within the next 10 days. The surprise removal of Faubus leaves Cherry onjy one definite opponent so far— Gus McMillan, a Sheridan real estate dealer. Faubus, who held three top po- licical jobs during the adminis- tion of former Gov. Sid McMath, said in a statement that Cherry's administration was "the most unpopular first term administration within my memory."

The three high commissioners also told Adenauer that despite Moscow's granting of purported "sovereignty" to East Germany 10 days ago, the Western Allies were not yet ready to give full independence to the Bonn republic. They repeated the view that restoration of full sovereignty to West Germany will have to wait until the European army treaty is ratified. German hopes that it might be granted sooner if the French continued to,delay ratification of the army plan were raised by a recent speech by U.S. High Commis- siner James B. Conant, But the British and French objected They consisted that full sovereignty must wait until the European Defense Community goes into effect.
