Â£-. By JIM PHELAN- Baby, It's Cold Inside! We have been called to task, politely but firmly, by an Iowa corporation for stating here that a San Pedro lady won a deep freeze in a slogan contest. . .The corporation asserts that the son who walks through a beautiful meadow to sniff a compost heap; "Vi- N Â· .word "Deepfreeze" is a registered trade j * mark and as such should be capitalized and placed in quotation marks. Â·Although we had referred to a deep : 5f ; freeze and not a "Deepfreeze," the 1. letter sent us scurrying off to the ref- : i" erence works. We learned with almost ; ho amazement, that the words "deep" Â· and "freeze" w e r e Â· r o am i n g unbranded through the pastures of , riur language back in '.....the time of William iy, Shakespeare, long before the Iowa corporation was even a glint in some entrepreneur's eye.

Missile-Tow Those tiny foreign cars may get 60 miles on a gallon of gas, but they have their drawbacks. Fellow in San Pedro, who drives a little German bubble-car about the size of a golf cart, flooded out Monday night on Western Ave. during.the heavy rain. So he called his wife to tow him home with her big Detroit job. He tied the little bug to his wife's car with a piece of rope, and told her he would signal with his horn when he was ready to roll. He was just climbing into the bug- it has a door in the front, with the steering wheel hinged to it--when a driver behind him honked his horn.

We yield to the corporation on its proprietorship of "Deepfreeze," and promise to genuflect typographically when and if we trespass upon that homestead.

"I didn't even have my key out, so I couldn't turn on the lights, blow the horn, or switch on the windshield wipers," the man reports. "I couldn't signal with my horn, and my w i f e kept going faster and faster. I was like the tail on a big kite in a strong wind. I don't think I hit ground more t h a n four or five times. We wont through some flooded sections and I just skimmed over the waves l i k e a water skier. It was raining like crazy and I couldn't see a thing, and a f t e r a while 1 was glad I couldn't."

NEW YORK W) -- The teenage daughter of an Alfred University official missing for nearly 24 hours, was found in a movie house Tuesday night with a Negro basketball player, police said. Police said the blue-eyed blonde, Dorothy Lebohner, 18, I and Warren Sutton, 20, of Chester, Pa., were seated arm-in-arm in the theater. * * * * THE GIRL'S father, Edward K. Lebohner, treasurer o f . the university at Alfred, N. Y., and Mrs. Lebohner had said they were t a k i n g her to Florida to get over a romance with Sutton. They were staying at the Biltmore Hotel here when Dorothy vanished. She took no extra clothing with her, and had only about $2 in her purse, Lebohner said. Two patrolmen saw the girl and Sutton walking along 42nd St., and were unaware she was being sought u n t i l they saw the morning newspapers. * Â«Â· * * SUSPECTING the couple might have gone into one of j t h e movie houses on 12nd St.. :tlie patrolmen and two others Â· began a search.

When he learned his daughter was seeing the athlete, Lebohner said, he spoke to Sutton and the latter "promised not to see her anymore." Lebohner said Sutton left the university Dec. 8 after getting in a fist fight during a basketball game. The'father denied he had exerted any pressure on Sutton to leave. * * # * ON THE DAY a f t e r Christmas, Dorothy went to Newark, N.
