I'"civ Women In Class "It was then 1 wondered why more women did not enter a profession to which they could adapt so easily," she said. "There were only 11 women in a graduating j class of 96."

The ex-teacher has been at the store about two weeks. In that time she has Jeamed two things: Working in a drug store is less hectic than working in a hospital pharmacy, and, second, physicians wile as badly in their private of- Iices as they do in hospitals.

A gas pipe burned through it) the basement shot out fuel which increased the fury of the blaze, Fire Chief Ervin of the MiUon Volunteer Fire Department said. Mrs. Carrizales first noticed the fire when she glanced out a window and saw a wisp of smoke. She dashed to the outside basement entrance and was driven back by heavy smoke when she opened the door. She retraced her steps to the house, got the children out. and then dashed back to telephone the fire department, only to find the fire had already burned through the telephone wires. She sought assistance of neighbors who called the fii'e department and then made an effort to enter the basement but were driven back by flames. Firemen had the raging fire under control in about 10 minutes after two of them entered the basement to shut off the gas.
