Blonde Betty Marbury, who lives on a farm near Brownsville, Tenn., is suffering from what her doctor calls a malignant lesion. Yesterday she listed her troubles and hopes in a poignant letter to The Memphis Commercial-Appeal The child wrote: "I am now undergoing X-ray treatment at the Baptist hospital in Memphis for an infection of my right hand. My doctor says he fears he will have to amputate my hand to stop the infection. "I want those v,;ho may read this letter ... to pray that I may not have to lose my hand and that I may soon completely recover. I believe the Lord will answer their prayers." In her letter Betty asked the newspaper to notify her father, Clay, if there were any charges for publishing it. The Commercial-Appeal printed the letter with a note to Betty which read: "The 'charges' for publishing your letter . . . were prepaid long ago and far away on a hill called Calvary." And the paper offered its prayer for the fifth grader in an editorial which said: O Lord, who healed the leper and raised up Lazarus from the dead, heal, too, and protect this believing, gentle child." From the public came telephone calls and promises of Illinois Reports Sub-Zero Weather (By International News Service) Chicago, Dec. 2.—The season's first sub-zero wave hit Illinois today, sending the mercury plunging to three below at Rockford and 10.6 above in Chicago.
