(AP) — Fat men make the best husbands, a net school teachers the best wives. That's the word horn the director of the National Institute for Human Relations. Dr. J;:mes F. Bender of New York City declared at the closing summer session convocation of Buffalo State Teachers College the fat man is the least likely to want a divorce, he is a tender and faithful lover and he is more e-isily persuaded to wash the dishes and get up at night to look nt the baby. Bender, who thinks he's the "roiy- poly type" himself, had this to say to maritally inclined gentlemen: "School teachers love children and they make good mothers . Teachers are well adjusted personalities as a rule and are less inclined to be neurotic than the average American woman." Furthermore, he said when a woman has been giving classroom lectures all day long, she return? home at night too tired to talk, this Is "sheer heaven" to most married males. Hot Weather Too Much For Native of Tibet LITTLE HOCK. Ark.. Aug. IS. OF) —The Little Rock zoo's only yak— a furry, cold weather animal—died of sunstroke Friday. Zoo officials snirt the animal's temperature reached 103 before death. Tibet Is the native hnbitat of the fur-bearing yak. Maximum temperature in Little Rock that day was 97 degrees. Back in the days when I was earning rny matjes and macaroons by rhyming "orange juice" with "foreign Juice," I once sat up all night with a melody writer, working on a ditty called "How Can 1 Live in Russia when My Heart's in Tennessee?" When we finally called it a day, it was day, and as we emerged from the Tin Pan Alleycat's apartment on West 41th Street, lie invited me to have breakfast with him at The Lambs club across the street. The Lambs, as you know, is the Union League and Sigma Chi of show business, and anybody who puts In an appearance before noon is apt to be examined for holes in the head, but when we got to the dining room, a .snowy-templed Did sent was already finishing his breakfast. As the waiter went to the kitchen for our grapefruit, I saw the old boy furtively up-end the sugar bowl and dump the cubes into his pocket. Then he straightened his tie mid left. "Did you see what I think I Just saw?" I asked the melody writer "I did." said my friend, "and If you don't mind listening to a story this early in the morning. ..." Around the turn and twist of the Century, the man who had stole the sugar was the most popular musical comedy sVsir on Broad a Handsome T Iarry whose tenor voice was a mating call to thousands of flllttcry matrons. Foi years, his lake-home pay was al mo^t a thousand a week, but thi performer never let it go la his head or wallet. "Banks fall am mattresses burn," was the way h explained it. "Tlie best thing to do with (he stuff is get rid of It." And get rid of it he did. He bought everything he took a fancy to, and what he couldn't spend he gave away—according to old-timers, there was hardly a guy in show I business, who at one time or an- ; other, hadn't touched him for a fin ] and gone away with a sawbuck. But then came 'he day no mat- I inee idol believes is on the cat- [ endar — the unholy day when, wrinkles show up and jobs don't. And since the Idol, at the time. ! didn't have t\vo bits to his famous : name, it looked like the end of the line and no trolley car back. Fortunately for him, however, he was a member of The Lambs, and for years this excellent organization has maintained an informal little slush fund for just such emergencies. The custodian of the fund sent for him and told him not to worry, that his rent and eats would be taken care of, and that he'd get enough pocket money to keep him In cigarettes and Variety. One morning, though, a few weeks later, the manager of the club's dining room saw the old actor do a funny thing—empty the sugar bowl. Intrigued, he decided to follow him and see what he did with the sweets. In front of the Hotel Claridge, the manager saw the ex-star amble up to a policeman's horse, pat its schnozz and hand It several lumps of sugar. Then he continued down Broadway to the Empire Theater and went through the same routine with a hayburner hitched to an ice wagon. And when the manager decided he had seen enough, the old boy was playing Mr. Bountiful for a milkman's svvayback In front of tlie New Amsterdam. . . . "It's a touching story," I said. "Broke as he Is, the old-timer is still walking down Broadway giving lungs away—still running Irue ti orm." "That's the way Ihe Lambs fig- ire it," said the melody writer, 'and we certainly aren't going to stop him. Afler all, there are too uany of us who have tasted his iugar ourselves." Top Chinese Communist Reported Deod of T8 CANTON.
