He said th« bear ripped off part of his clothing but he finally chased it away by stabbing at its eyes. In the fight Le Gault lost the keys to his truck and he had to walk a mile back to his home. His wife drove him to the hospital. Two veteran hunters, Arnold Norman and Tom Singleton, said the bear had two cubs *nd it appeared that Le Gault without realizing it had approached the cubs too closely and angered the mother bear, the bear ran off, avoiding the hunters. Attacks by Upper Michigan bears on humans are not frequent. But a 2-year-old girl was killed and partly eaten by a bear at Mission Hill 26 miles west of Sault Ste. Marie in July of 1948. Le Gault had a scrimmage with a bear several years ago. But he was armed then with a rifle and killed the bearJ HOUSE OF NUTRITION Royal Jelly Caps Plus Vitamins 30-day Supply--*3.95 100-days--*9.95 Liver 612 Tablets Helps fight fatigue , 250 Tabs 900 Tabs 3.95 7.50 Pure Gelatin 16 01. .,, _...!.59 5 Ibi. ...: 7.50 Diet Consultants in Tucson for 10 Years 4SS2 East Broadway ' Phone EA 4411 I Save by Joining Our Vitamin Club | i --Photo toy Ow»n LAUGHS FOR THE LADS Veteran cartoonist Dick Calkins shows State Industrial School Supt.

GRANT--Everyone skipped Sunday breakfast here yesterday and slept in until 10:30 a.m. for the first time in State Industrial School history. That let the cooks and messboys take the morning off to rest up from three long days of putting up 150 extra meals each mealtime for visitors at last week's Conference on* Juvenile Delinquency. Now, the school returns to normal, with its'346'youngsters using the laundry again. To look their very best during the conference, each one washed out his own T-shirt every night and kept his trousers as ..spotless as any normal boy could be expected Jo do. Usually, they change clothes every second day. It was not just the adult staff that wanted to make a good impression. The school grapevine was buzzing and every kid there knew one panel session would try to decide which was better, "Short Stay or Long Stay?" And it was hardly over before they knew the school superintendent, Steve Vukcevich, had been unanimously upheld in his policy of keeping youngsters there until they straighten out, whether that takes months or years. . Vukcevich lets some boys go out on probation in three or four months, he told the panel, but he discusses all releases under six months with the school's board of directors. Boys sent back a second or third time stay two years or until they are. 17, he reported. Only one Florence Nesbitt Rites Scheduled Wednesday Funeral services for Miss Florence M. Nesbitt will be held at 2. p.m. Wednesday at Bring's Funeral Home with burial in the Masonic section of Evergreen Cemetery. "Die Rev. George C. Whitney of the Unitarian Church will officiate. Miss Nesbitt, 84, former assistant executive director of United Charities in Chicago, HI., died Saturday in Tucson Medical Center. Retiring after nearly 30 years of welfare work in Chicago, she moved to Tucson · in 1949. Miss Nesbitt was a native of Caldwell County, Mo., and graduated from the University of Missouri in 1902. When United Charities celebrated ita "centennial three yean ago, Miss Nesbitt was an honored guest in Chicago and was presented with a parchment memorial in testimony of her service. " She belonged to the Great Books Club and was a member of the Tucson Fine Arts -Assn. Survivors include two sisters, Mrs. Ethel Hopkins and Miss Nell Nesbitt, both of Tucson; and * brother, Dr. P.

"Perhaps it was just this attitude that' set the boy wrong in the first place. In these cases, we keep the lad here and try to find him a job on some nearby farm." All "graduates" stay on probation until age 17 under the supervision of 12 field placement officers working under Vukcevich. This makes him Arizona's one- man equivalent of the Youth Authority system of California and other states. "Each youngster has a different problem," he said, "and.we deal with each one separately." Or, as John McFarland, Pima County Juvenile Detention Home superintendent, put it: "We're not dealing with children. We are dewing with, the child."
