Negro Doctor Is Honored by Texas Town TAYLOR, Tex. (/P)—A 59-year-old Negro physician Is this central Tex- RS city's outstanding citizen of 1952. Dr. James Lee Dickey was honored yesterday by the town's four civic clubs for "watching over the health of his people for 32 years." Thanks to Dr. Dickey, who came here in 1B21, the town had a 15-bed modern hospital for negroes, the infant diarrhea death rate is down, and tuberculosis is almost whipped among the colored. "We need time for the races to understand arid know each other," Dr. Dickey says. "Everyone jnst needs to be patient, and things that peem to be problems won't be problems any more." ' - each month for sale In the slave narkets of Saudi Arabia and Yemen. The British don't Ihink, the charges^ are true, but their government has begun' an Investigation anyway. The inquiry Is complicated by the fact that slave markets are legal In Saudi Arabia Yemen and neither country so far nas revealed its sources of supply. Both countries, the U. N.'s anti- sla.very section • said today, have Ignored questionnaires sent them on slavery and forced labor'. Britain's U. N. delegation also revealed. In answer to a query from Ihe U. N., that slavery still Is legal In the oil-rich sheikdom of Kuwait, on the Northwest Coast of the Persian Gulf, but that actual buying and selling of slaves now is prohibited there. Kuwait is under Britain's protection and" the British handle foreign relations for the Sheik. Saudi Arabia, Yemen and Kuwait all are Moslem countries and Moslem law permits slavery and slave trading. . * The charges of large-scale slave traffic between Britain's African possessions and the Arabian kingdoms originated with, Jaco.ucs Alain, who described himself in a communication to the U. N. Commission on Human Rights as a French explorer living in North Africa. Both Brilish authorities and U.N. officials said they knew nothing about Alain. Alain said the slave trade worked like this:: Armed, whip-swinging raiders swoop down on native villages isolated around the fringes of the Sahara and in the Central African jungles. Those captured are chained together and marched by secret trails to hidden "slave coves" on the Red Sea, where they are loaded on rickety ships and (aken to Saudi Arabia for distribution. During the march 10 lo 20 per cent of (he enslaved die of exhaustion, thirst or starvation, Alain said. Boisterous Pooch Foiled by Signs ?~ •••' NEW TjLM, Minn.

When the Ferings replaced Augustus with a labrador pup named King, there were misgivings that Limey might start tossing his fatal weight around again. So the two families worked out the signal ritual. When the bulldog leaves the house, Mrs. Schmucker puts a sign in the window reading "Litney out." King stays "In. And vice versa for the Fcrings. So far, the system has worked so well neither pet has seen the other. Church Learns Advertising Pays .- WAMPSVIU.E, N. y.

KITCH CHAMPAIGN, III. Wl—The bnsc- mentless house nnd -automatic laundry equipment have streamlined modern living. This is (he opinion o( Rudarcl A. Jopes. director of the- space study laboratory of the Small Homes Council of (he University >f Illinois. Jones is cxpcrinjonting :o find the ideal house plan and low best to use space In B small house. The space laboratory, a flexible dwelling erected a year ago on -he campus, Is used to study family living habits. Flexibility of room arrangement in the experimental house Is possible by movable interior and exlerior walls. So fnr, eight floor plans have been studied under controlled conditions.' Two families have lived in the house. Traffic through the various house plans is clocked nicloinndcally by electronic eye. Occupants of the house also commented on the plans. It generally was concluded that location of a first-floor laundry In a ulillty area off the kitchen was most satisfactory.. Although the basement wns-useful for storage, it is believed not necessary to comfortable living. Laundry schedules were three to five times n week. These, said Jones, required only about five minutes of the housewife's time for -each cycle of. laundry.':'This compares lo Hie seven manun! operations _required for a single cycle by older washing metho'ds. To overcome the shortage of slorage space In bnsementless houses, closet storage space was widened—at least fcur lo'flvo feel for each person. Each person 'also was assigned a chest of drawers. A larger than average garage is found a necessity for storing tools, odds nnd ends. . The ultimate goal 'of the study is lo make the small home more livable. Most folks, it seems, eat Iti the kitchen. The "L" and "IT shaped cabinet and counter arrangements In tho kitchen were found easier (o live with. A playroom for children is necessary in the basementless house. This was located in an extra bill- room that could double ns a guest room.
