(Photo, Terry Dennison) s Super Hair-Do Helps' Home Therapies Advised For Crippled Teenagers SAN FRANCISCO (AP) A group o experts oiiered advice here yesterday on how physically handicapped teenagers can be help ed to get along in the world with out running up medical bills that would wreck the average family's income. Things that can be done in the home can improve, to some extent at least, the lot of virtually all crippled children, these experts said. They addressed the National Society of Crippled Children and Adults. The handicapped youngster who can be trained to take care of his personal appearance has a good chance of bemg able to get along with people, said Harriet C. Johnson, medical social worker of the University of California school of medicine. AN ESPECIALLY pretty dress or a super hair-ao may improve the emotional and social status of crippled adolescent girl, Miss Johnson said. Despite her handicap, the girl wants to be attractive to the boys. Also, the girl's appearance may count heavily when it comes to her being accepted by the boys and girls generally in her age group. Good grooming will help the crippled boy but fancy clothes won't do so much for him, Miss Johnson said. He wants masculine strength and independence. If they are unattainable, the boy probably should have special guidance to help him find substitutes for these, Miss Johnson added. FOB THE CEREBRAL palsied child who cannot talk, diet can be a part of the home treatment, said Dr. Harold B. Westlake, director of the speech and hearing clinic at Northwestern Univerlity. Foods which are especially effective in developing the muscles of speech can be used to advantage.

He can give his allegiance to the nation and his loyalty to his state. If you elect me your U. S. Senator, I will do my solemn best to represent you.

This breaking away from parental protection is one of the first steps toward successful treatment, he said. Prof. Charles R.

Motor Repair Shop To Close Bowen and McLaughlin Co., will close their motor repair plant here this month, G. Swiss Theilkas, general manager, said last night. He said the closing results from expiration .of its ordnance contract for overhaul of army tank motors. The firm obtained the contract In January 1951. Peak operations resulted in employment of 430 men, mostly skilled technicians. "We shut down production three weeks ago," Theilkas said. "We've only got a handful of employes left shipping out left-over parts." Theilkas said there was some hope the plant would re-open. Co-owner, Truman Bowen and Mrs. Bowen have just completed a world trip. Bowen was in Phoenix Sunday, Theilkas said, and is now in Washington contract-hunting.

Ship Lines Sale Brings $18 Million WASHINGTON (AP) A finan cial combine headed by Ralph K. Davies, San Francisco oil man. yesterday bought for $18,360,000 the controlling interest in Amer ican President lanes, globe-girdling steamship firm long in the hands of the government. The sale of the company, which operates 27 ships, ended a court battle between the R. Stanley Dollar interests and the government. The fight reached into the su preme court and last year saw Secretary of Commerce Sawyer cited for contempt. Dollar told a reporter he was satisfied with the outcome. He said he had put in a bid just to guard against leaving half the stock in government hands. If nobody had made a successful bid. the government and Dollar would have split the stock evenly. Sawyer said in a statement: "I am gratified at the proceed ings. The figure of the successful bid was high enough to give the government more than $9 million, an amount in excess of the highest bid of some $8& million offered for the entire stock in dispute when litigation started back in 1945." For their money, Davies and his group got a line which dominates trans-Pacific shipping and operates the only round-the-world continuous shipping service. American President Lines owns 17 ships, all named for presidents, and, Davies said, has 10 other vessels on charter from the governmert. - Penney s Open Garage Soon There is a strong probability the new J.
